WWE News: New Intercontinental Champion Crowned Tonight On RAW

Published

on

The night after Wrestlemania we had Day one of the Superstar Shakeup which saw Dolph Ziggler come from Smackdown Live back over to Monday Night RAW. Dolph didn’t come to the red brand alone as introduced former NXT Champion Drew McIntyre and they laid waste to Titus Worldwide. Since that night Dolph and Drew have become an unstoppable force and have only ran into one hiccup and that was when they lost a tag team battle royal a couple of weeks agao on RAW.

Seth Rollins has been on a roll like no other and it all beagin when Seth set a record in a Gauntlet match a couple of months ago on RAW. Rollins would continue that roll as he put on stellar matches against Finn Balor leading into Wrestlemania. It was at Wrestlemania that Seth would win the Intercontinental Championship in a triple threat match against both Finn Balor and The Miz. Since winning the title Seth would go on to become the definition of a fighting champion by defending the title all over the globe. Seth would even hold weekly open challenges on RAW.

Whenever you see a champion issue weekly open challenges it’s only a matter a time before it comes back to bite them in the butt and that’s exactly what happened tonight. In the first match of the night Seth came out and issued an open challenge for his Intercontinental Championship which lead to both Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre coming out. It would Dolph who would answer the challenge with Drew hanging out around ringside supporting Dolph.

In a shocking turn of events Dolph would counter a roll up attempt from Seth to shock the WWE Universe and win the Intercontinental Championship for the sixth time in his career.

Ja’Von’s Take: I’m a fan of both guys and each of them have brought prestige back to the workhorse title. After Seth retained the title against Elias last night after grabbing a hand full of his pants I thought that the feud between them would continue but as we saw tonight that is not the case. Seth dropping the title to Dolph tonight came a complete shock to me and everyone else as we saw the crowd’s reactions after the match. Could Dolph winning the title tonight lead to a new version of Shawn Michaels and Diesel? Could this lead to a Dolph Ziggler/Seth Rollins feud?

WWE News: Liv Morgan’s Injury Now Confirmed By WWE

Published

on

If you didn’t catch last night’s edition of Monday Night RAW from Denver, Colorado, The Riott Squad was in 6-Woman Tag Team action against the trio of Natalya and The Bella Twins.

During one moment in the match, Brie was delivering her husband’s trademark Yes Kicks to Liv Morgan and misfired on a couple of shots, striking Liv in the head with two consecutive blows. Morgan was visibly wobbly immediately after, getting tagged out and then only reappearing for one more spot in the match where The Riott Squad was hit with a triple suplex.

While it was widely believed that Liv likely suffered a concussion, it had yet to be confirmed although we did learn she was undergoing testing to see if that was in fact the case (read about that here). Today, WWE has now confirmed that Morgan does have a concussion with the following statement to PWInsider:

“Liv Morgan has a concussion and is going through the proper protocol under WWE’s comprehensive wellness program.”

It has also been noted today that Liv is having trouble remembering what happened during last night’s match. Additionally, it’s being said that although she was clearly injured, Morgan essentially forced her way back into the match briefly to take the triple suplex spot. At this time it’s not known how long she will be out of action.

WWE News: RAW Rating Takes A Big Drop, Rises In Top 5 (9/24/18)

Published

on

It has been nothing but dipping ratings for WWE’s Monday Night RAW ever since the post-SummerSlam episode on August 20th. With the NFL season in full swing, would the red brand have any shot at turning it around this week?

The numbers are in for last night’s episode and their downward trend continues with a 2.349, a 12% decrease over last week’s edition that had a 2.672. This is officially the lowest rated edition of RAW in the show’s history, beating out the July 9th episode a couple of months back. Here’s a look at the last four weeks of RAW ratings:

  • September 3rd: 2.872
  • September 10th: 2.740
  • September 17th: 2.672
  • September 24th: 2.349

While RAW’s rating took a big drop this week, their Cable Top 150 Ranking in the 18-49 demographic unusually went back up to the fourth spot after ranking fifth last week:

  1. NFL/Steelers vs. Buccaneers – ESPN – 4.43
  2. Monday Night Kickoff – ESPN – 1.62
  3. SportsCenter (12 AM Hour) – ESPN – 1.50
  4. Monday Night RAW (8PM Hour) – USA Network – 0.84
  5. Love & Hip Hop Hollywood – VH1 – 0.83

EA’s Take: While I’m generally tooting the horn of “Don’t Panic” lately when it comes to RAW’s ratings, there’s not much good going on here. It’s a bit of a deceiving positive that the red brand was able to move up a slot in the Cable Top 150. Last week, they came in fifth with a 0.96 share of the 18-49 demographic, so along with a big drop in the ratings, a big decrease here as well. It’s going to continue getting worse before it gets better, I feel at least. This is football season baby and any time there’s a big game like this week, RAW has no chance.

*Spoilers* Update On Independent Star Injured At Last Week’s NXT TV Tapings

Published

on

Last Thursday, WWE’s NXT was back at Full Sail University for its latest set of television tapings to air on the WWE Network.

Among the action, Shayna Baszler went one-on-one with independent star and the girlfriend of The Undisputed Era’s Adam Cole, Britt Baker. According to initial reports, Baker may have been injured during the match, however she continued to compete and even was attacked after the bell by Baszler. This led many to believe the injury in question was just part of an angle, but it now appears like that is not the case.

It has now been revealed that Baker suffered a dislocated shoulder, however the speculation is that there is not a major injury in play that would require surgery. In what would seem to back that talk up, Britt took to Twitter and remarked that she will be out of action for a few weeks. Adam Cole would also comment:
