WWE Rumors: Possible Plan For Braun Strowman’s MITB Cash-In

Published

on

Braun Strowman Get These Hands

In case you missed it, ‘The Monster Among Men’ Braun Strowman emerged victorious last night at WWE’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view, climbing the ladder in the evening’s main event to procure the Men’s Money In The Bank briefcase and earn himself an opportunity at the Universal Championship at any time over the next year. Braun’s win has been met with a little bit of criticism, but also questions on how his future cash-in could play out and who the champion may be when does decide to pull the trigger.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Strowman may be cashing in at SummerSlam on August 19th, where it’s believed that Brock Lesnar will be defending the Universal Title against his WrestleMania 34 and Greatest Royal Rumble opponent, Roman Reigns. Previously, Meltzer had reported that Lesnar was not confirmed for any WWE dates (which you can read here), including SummerSlam, however it still looks like Brock vs. Roman is still in fact the plan. At this time, nothing has been confirmed and it should be noted that this is still just speculation.

EA’s Take: Dude…Meltzer flip-flops more than some overpriced footwear from Abercrombie & Fitch. I never bought that Reigns vs. Lesnar wasn’t the plan for SummerSlam and quite frankly, Braun cashing in there makes the most sense. The crowd in Brooklyn will unquestionably be displeased with yet another clash between ‘The Beast Incarnate’ and ‘The Big Dog’. So personally, I’d love to see a scheduled cash-in like we saw with Rob Van Dam back in 2006. If you don’t remember, RVD won Money In The Bank at WrestleMania 22, then later announced he would be taking his opportunity at the ECW One Night Stand pay-per-view where he eventually defeated John Cena for his one and only WWE Championship reign. A scheduled cash-in would fit with Braun’s character much more, in my opinion. Just think about it. He’s a monster and doesn’t need to take advantage of a weakened champion. So I’d play that angle up and turn this Reigns/Lesnar SummerSlam match into a Triple Threat.

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:
