Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News!
I’m Oli Davis, and I’ll be replying to
as many comments on this video as I can.
The Miz, Seth Rollins Finn Balor main event
on this week’s Raw was arguably one of the
best WWE TV matches of the year so far, which
The Miz won to become the No. 1 contender
to Dean Ambrose’s Intercontinental Championship.
After Raw went off air, Ambrose and Miz furthered
their feud when a wild Bray Wyatt appeared
from underneath the ring.
Look at him go!
Follow those buzzards, Bray!
Thanks to @DevilsXOmega on Twitter for letting
us use that footage.
But Bray Wyatt hasn’t been the only one
exposing the business.
The WWE roster have just embarked on one of
their most gruelling annual trips – the European
Directly following this week’s episode of
Smackdown, the crew flew across the pond,
where WWE will run 24 shows in 14 different
countries over just 11 days, including next
week’s Raw and Smackdown TV tapings in London,
England – which I’m going to!
These intense tours can be stressful, with
long plane rides, coach journeys and Sin Cara
making annoying noises.
So it’s understandable a few of the boys
wanted to chillax before their first show
in Italy last night.
As his new gimmick seems to be forcing people
to take selfies with him, Titus O’Neil has
posted a photo on Twitter of a few Raw wrestlers
just hanging out in Rome, with himself, Heath
Slater, Matt Hardy, Curtis Axel and…wait
a second…that can’t be…the currently
injured and most definitely feuding titans
of Raw Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns getting
along just fine together!
It’s considered bad form in professional
wrestling to be seen all chummy in public
when you’re engaged in a bitter blood feud
with each other on TV – and even more so when
it’s your A show’s top feud: Titus O’Neil
and Heath Slater.
And, to a lesser degree, Strowman and Reigns.
For a company that last year suspended Titus
for 60 days because he slightly pushed Vince
McMahon, these photos will most likely garner
O’Neill backstage heat.
And he seems to have realised his mistake,
very quickly removing the photo from all his
Since winning the Universal Championship from
Goldberg at Wrestlemania 33 last month, Brock
Lesnar hasn’t been seen at all on WWE TV.
And it seems that ain’t going to change
for the next couple of months.
Dave Meltzer has revealed on Wrestling Observer
Radio that Lesnar currently only has two dates
scheduled for WWE: Great Balls of Fire in
July and Summerslam in August.
However, this isn’t as serious as it first
Lesnar is actually expected to be around more
for his current championship run than he was
for his 2014-2015 reign, it’s just that
WWE haven’t yet confirmed the exact schedule.
Braun Strowman seems to be Brock’s next
challenger, with Finn Balor and Seth Rollins
also being likely opponents down the line.
A Balor vs Lesnar main event for Summerslam
would fit into storyline very nicely, being
a year since Finn became the first ever Universal
But before Great Balls of Fire, we have the
Smackdown-exclusive pay-per-view Backlash
in just two weeks’ time, which now has an
official poster – Shinsuke Nakamura’s Great
Balls of Fire right in your face.
It’s a really reassuring placement of Nakamura,
with WWE obviously seeing his debut match
on the main roster as the show’s major selling
point-WHOAH, wait a second.
What does that say above his left leg?
‘The Artist Known As Shinsuke Nakamura’!?
Oh god dammit.
Bayley picked up a nasty looking injury on
this week’s Raw, and the brand new episode
of WrestleRamble is now live, where Luke Owen
and I decide which show was better – Raw or
