Tag: Roman Reigns
WWE loaded up the card for No Mercy, a September Raw brand pay-per-view with two WrestleMania main event-quality matches.
Chris Graham talks on our AFP podcast about the Roman Reigns wellness policy violation, breaks down the NBA Finals Game 7, previews the NBA Draft and looks ahead to the ACC Football Kickoff.
Seth Rollins pinned Roman Reigns to win his second WWE heavyweight title Sunday night at Money in the Bank, but that wasn’t the end of the story.
WWE desperately wants to get Roman Reigns over with fans. Matching him up with smark favorite A.J. Styles is probably not the way to do it.
WWE is advertising that it is beginning a new era. The first installment of Roman Reigns vs. AJ Styles was a good launching pad.
No matter how much you boo Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan ain’t coming back. CM Punk, he ain’t coming back.
Roman Reigns, predictably, walked out of AT&T Stadium at the end of WrestleMania 32 with the WWE championship.
We can start with the obvious. The biggest losers at WWE Fastlane were those of us who spent three hours fighting spotty broadcast signals and common sense to watch.
Everybody was in on the big secret that Triple H was going to win the WWE title at the Royal Rumble, though the company did its best to try to make us act surprised.
WWE is bringing its live Road to WrestleMania 32 tour to the Richmond Coliseum on Saturday, March 26. Tickets go on sale Saturday, January 23 at 10am.
TMZ is reporting today that the NYPD received a “bunch of calls” triggered by the storyline arrest of WWE chairman Vince McMahon on Monday Night Raw.
WWE didn’t do its TLC pay-per-view event any justice with the Raws and Smackdowns that served as the lead-ins.
Wrestling, once again, is dying. You want to doubt that, then you have to explain the final segment of the go-home Raw.
Tonight’s WWE Survivor Series live event features a traditional Survivor Series match pitting two teams of five head-to-head. Not that we know who is on either of those two teams.
We were heading into WrestleMania season with Seth Rollins the likely WWE champ, perhaps getting ready for a break and co-main event with Authority figure Triple H, or a Shield reunion with Roman Reigns.
The post-WrestleMania 31 Monday Night Raw hit a three-year ratings high, drawing more than 5.4 million viewers to see what WWE had in store following the surprise Seth Rollins world-title win.
Brock Lesnar is back in the mix, and it couldn’t have come a moment sooner. Ratings for WWE Monday Night Raw have been tanking in the tank with Seth Rollins at the top of the food chain as WWE champ, not so much an indictment of Rollins as the lack of marketable challengers.
Two things at WWE Money in the Bank we can predict with certainty: Seth Rollins is going to leave as world champ, and John Cena is going to even his summer series with Kevin Owens. Who wins the match that is the title of the show is very much a question.
Ryback is the new WWE Intercontinental champ. Kevin Owens won the champ vs. champ match with John Cena with a clean fall. (A clean fall!)
WWE champ Seth Rollins, as expected, retained, and U.S. champ John Cena, as expected, won his I Quit match with Rusev, who as expected didn’t quit, but was quit for by his manager, Lana. So WWE Payback was predictable. It was also still very entertaining.
Seth Rollins is readying himself for his second pay-per-view title defense at Sunday’s WWE Payback. The new champ will face one of the tougher challenges a strap-holder can have: in the form of a fatal four-way involving Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton.
Seth Rollins lost a clean fall to Randy Orton in a suspiciously early match on the WrestleMania 31 card, so suspiciously early that you knew that Rollins’ night wasn’t done.
Let’s make this clear right here and right now: Seth Rollins is the future of WWE. The question: is he also the present?
The WWE calendar revolves around three big events a year. The Royal Rumble and WrestleMania are interconnected, and just a couple of months apart.
The rumor mill has WWE head honcho Vince McMahon considering adding former WWE champ Daniel Bryan to the main event for WrestleMania 31.
For the second year in a row, the winner of the WWE Royal Rumble, this year’s winner being Roman Reigns, was showered with boos upon his coronation as the WrestleMania co-main-eventer.
A triple threat world title match, then the Rumble itself: this weekend’s WWE Royal Rumble is setting the stage for The Road to WrestleMania 31.
The Survivor Series in November was a crowning moment for WWE: marking the on-screen WWE debut of Sting, and the storyline demise of The Authority, the faction led by real-life WWE executives Stephanie McMahon and Triple H whose act was, yes, getting a bit stale more than a year into its run.
No Brock Lesnar, no Randy Orton, no Sting, no Triple H, John Cena on at 9 p.m. Eastern. WWE’s TLC pay-per-view was dominated by the next generation of WWE Superstars.
WWE looks forward to its TLC pay-per-view this weekend as a chance to build on one of its more successful events in recent years at Survivor Series in November.
WWE is trying to make chicken salad out of chicken … feathers. The roster depleted by injury, we get the millionth iteration of the company versus the talent, the bourgeoisie squaring off with the proletariat.
WWE hasn’t been getting much right lately. For all the hype the company is trying to give to its free month of WWE Network, for example, you’re not giving away the product for free if people were buying it.
Spoiler alert: Rock and Triple H are going to have a discussion backstage at WWE Smackdown Friday night about a match at WrestleMania 31.
With Roman Reigns on the shelf following surgery, WWE world champ Brock Lesnar needs an opponent for WrestleMania 31. Jim Ross blogged this week on an intriguing possible fill-in for Reigns: CM Punk.
Cluster at the end of Night of Champions: That’s all you can conjure here with reference to the screwjob ending to the Brock Lesnar-John Cena main event.
Wow, interesting move there by WWE creative, closing Raw with a long segment putting the spotlight on the Rusev-Mark Henry match that, by all rights, should be the first or second match on Night of Champions.
WWE has been targeting a Survivor Series return for recent champ Daniel Bryan, but he may be able to get back in action sooner with his rehab starting to go better than had been expected.
All indications are that WWE wants to keep its world title on Brock Lesnar through WrestleMania 31 for a main-event match with Roman Reigns.
HIT: Brock Lesnar squashes WWE Champ John Cena Yeah, wow. Lesnar, the former WWE and UFC champ, dominated Cena, hitting a reported 16 German suplexes and a pair of F5s, one 45 seconds into the match, the second as the finisher.
