Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News
– I’m Oli Davis.
Fat Jokes…FROM OUTTA NOWHERE
This is Randy Orton.
He’s been calling his fellow wrestlers names
for several weeks.
Zack Ryder, Cody Rhodes, Tye Dillinger – nobody
has been safe from the Viper’s online RKOs.
His next target was Kevin Owens.
Randy posted a photo of his McDonalds breakfast
with the caption: Don’t judge me.
I needed the calories.
Also I’m training for a potential confrontation
Rusev got in on the bullying too, noting Randy
might want to ‘Double it then’.
Randy and Rusev thought they were safe.
But they weren’t, because Owens had a reply
of his own, commenting:
“I’ve been preparing for a potential battle
between us too, buddy.
I watched paint dry today.
I’ve got you all figured out.”
“I’ll be darned”
Vince McMahon Shoots Down Bullet Club Reunion
WWE found themselves in a very difficult situation
two weeks ago when two of their featured performers
were struck down with illness just days before
the Raw-exclusive pay-per-view TLC. Roman
Reigns and Bray Wyatt were out with the mumps.
As the entire show had been built around the
Shield reunion, WWE wanted an equally momentous
attraction to replace Roman.
After reportedly reaching out to Chris Jericho,
who couldn’t make the show because of dates
with his band Fozzy, Vince McMahon made the
call to let Kurt Angle wrestle in a WWE ring
for the first time in 11 years.
WWE also delivered on Bray Wyatt’s replacement
– booking a special attraction dream match
between Wyatt’s original opponent Finn Balor,
and Smackdown wrestler AJ Styles (a battle
of the former Bullet Club leaders) which WWE
are already pushing as a match of the year
But according to Pro Wrestling Sheet, the
match almost had even more of a Bullet Club
On the site’s Wrestling Sheet Radio, Ryan
Satin said one idea was “a 4 on 4 match
where [Balor] would team with Karl Anderson,
Luke Gallows and AJ Styles to basically have
a Bullet Club reunion of sorts” but this
was “shot down” by Vince McMahon.
This could be because there was already a
3 vs 5 match as the show’s main event, but
it could also be because of the company’s
interpromotional feud with THE non-WWE members
of The Bullet Club ever since Cody Rhodes,
Marty Scurll, the Young Bucks and Hangman
Page invaded Monday Night Raw.
Which brings us onto…
