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.
