WWE Rumors: Brock Lesnar’s Next Title Defense, Missing Extreme Rules?

Published

on

One of the biggest gripes you’ll hear these days from members of the WWE Universe is most certainly the use (or lack thereof) of RAW’s Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. ‘The Beast Incarnate’ won the title back at WrestleMania 33 and has held onto it ever since, making sporadic appearances and title defenses. The overwhelming sentiment from fans is they’ve just had enough of the red brand’s top title being seldom seen.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, fans will have to continue waiting as Lesnar is reportedly not scheduled to defend the championship again until SummerSlam on August 19th. With Money In The Bank coming on June 17th, the next pay-per-view after that is Extreme Rules on July 15th, which Brock has not been advertised for.

Additionally, it’s being said that if Brock has his sights set on returning to the UFC when his short-term agreement with WWE runs out (reportedly right after SummerSlam), he would have to re-enter the USADA testing pool prior to June 30th. Speculation has been that ‘The Conqueror’ could get his next fight on New Year’s weekend, should he choose to return.

EA’s Take: I still don’t have a big issue with the Universal Title not being around much, as I stated last week on the Top Of The Morning Podcast (check that out here). It’s allowed the importance of the IC Title to be amplified (which we’ve seen with Miz and Rollins), plus I grew up on Hogan as the champion and hardly ever wrestling (at least on television). I also still say Lesnar’s not going anywhere, he really has it made in WWE and at his age, why fight again? I’ve heard in the past that the Mrs. doesn’t want him to either, so that’s got to play a part.

WWE News: Final Betting Odds For Tonight’s Money In The Bank

Published

on

The Chairshot was sent along the following by BetWrestling.com, offering up the final betting odds for tonight’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view:

The Money in the Bank betting lines have settled since originally introduced last week and there are new projections for key matches. Alexa Bliss is now the favorite to win the Women’s MitB briefcase and remember Natalya was previously most favored to win that match, so this could be an internal leak. In the Men’s MitB, The Miz is still the participant with the best odds to win and is now an outright favorite.

The WWE Championship match was originally an even bet on either AJ Styles or challenger Shinsuke Nakamura. Those odds quickly moved in favor on Nakamura and have remained that way all week. Because this will be a Last Man Standing Match, a count out or DQ is not possible. This is a projected title change.

The Smackdown Women’s Championship match has a suspect discrepancy between the odds for initial and end of broadcast rulings. While Carmella is now favored to successfully defend against Asuka, there could be a dusty finish with Asuka getting the initial win according to the odds. There is also reason to believe the match will be restarted at some point in the Daniel Brian vs Big Cass return match. Another note on that match is that Cass is now favored to win instead of Bryan.

Ronda Rousey is still favored to defeat Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax, however Ronda’s odds have not moves much and actually has been moving in the opposite direction. Roman Reigns, The Bludgeon Brothers, Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley were favored since the first round odds came out and have remained the favorites the entire time.

The odds below are all “end of broadcast” ruling unless otherwise noted. A minus sign indicates the favorites, while a plus sign represents the underdogs. The higher the number after the plus or minus tells us how favorable or unfavorable that wrestler(s) is/are.

WWE Championship – Last Man Standing
AJ Styles(c) +140 vs Shinsuke Nakamura -180

WWE Raw Women’s Championship
Nia Jax(c) +370 vs Ronda Rousey -560

WWE News: Why WWE’s Women Superstars Missed Live Events This Weekend

Published

on

As it’s been noted, the WWE RAW roster was on the road to tonight’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view with Live Events in Peoria, Illinois on Friday night, followed by another in Champaign, Illinois last night. There was some of backlash on social media from fans who attended the events, as none of the red brand’s Women’s Division Superstars appeared at either show with no real explanation given.

According to WrestlingInc, the reason for the absence of the Women’s Division was due to them being in Rosemont, Illinois, the site of Money In The Bank, as they were doing rehearsals for tonight’s Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder match.

EA’s Take: When I first saw all the complaining, I understood why people were upset. However at the end of the day, every card, including Live Events, are always subject to change. On the other hand, I don’t understand why there were absolutely NO women’s matches. There are only four women from RAW and four from SmackDown Live in the Women’s MITB match, so why exactly weren’t the rest of them there. For example, RAW’s entrants are Ember Moon, Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks and Natalya. So where was The Riott Squad, Mickie James, Bayley, RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax and Dana Brooke? Perhaps, Nia was rehearsing for her match with Ronda Rousey? We know Ronda’s got basically no experience, so I could see that. The rest of it I don’t understand, so I think people are one hundred percent justified in being displeased with the card.
