DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. TALKS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT HE THINKS OWEN HART WILL BE INDUCTED INTO THE WWE HALL OF FAME

I wish Owen could get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame but unfortunately it doesn’t look like it’s gonna happen. The only way I could see it happening… is like Martha {Hart} her deal is that she doesn’t want WWE to make a profit off of it. I can’t speak for Martha, but if WWE were to say ‘Okay we’re gonna induct Owen Hart into the Hall of Fame and earnings or whatever profits we make will be donated to the Owen Hart foundation,’ I think she might be more willing to do something like that. But even then I don’t think she’s gonna let that happen. I understand where she’s coming from, she was Owen’s wife, that’s fair, I can’t really argue that. I do think it would be great for him to be inducted.

DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. TALKS ABOUT THE REAL HEAT BETWEEN BRET HART AND SHAWN MICHAELS

Growing up I loved Shawn Michaels, yourself {Sean Waltman}, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and everybody. It always seemed to me that Bret always had more of an issue with the Kliq than Davey {Boy Smith} did. Depending on what kind of relationship Davey was having with Bret at the time if they were getting along, not getting along… One day you’d talked to Davey and him and Bret were cool and the next time he’d be taking Shawn’s side on things. Kinda like the weather. For me growing up it was interesting, it was always intense. You always know that between Bret and Shawn there was always real heat. And that’s something that is kinda missing from nowadays cause not many people have real heat like that.  But they were always professional. Sometimes these make the best matches.

DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. ON WHY NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING IS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PROMOTION IN JAPAN  

New Japan has always been the #1 company over there for years. Back in the 80s I think at one point when the Funks were in All Japan, I think All Japan was #1 so it’s always like they’re gonna be #1, they’re always gonna bounce back and be #1. Like I know WWE & WCW  when they had their feud and they were losing for quite a while and then they bounced back up… so they {NJPW} have that ability to bounce back up. It’s always been the #1 company in Japan and same thing with WWE even though they go through ups and downs. One thing they’ve been able to do is that they’ve been able to expand internationally, nowadays they’re doing stuff with Ring of Honor… They were having some hard hitting really awesome matches, I’m not saying Noah and All Japan aren’t. It’s the Strong Style, they’ve been able to roll with momentum. They’ve been smart with things. They know how to market themselves internationally, I think that’s the main thing. And I think they’ll always be #1 probably through all the ups and downs.

DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. TALKS ABOUT THE JAKE “THE SNAKE” ROBERTS ENCOUNTER

We’re all fine. That whole thing was just so stupid. I don’t have any problems with him {Jake Roberts}. I called him, I wanted to bury the heat anyway. My issue is with the jabroni wannabe bulls*** websites that make a fender out of a fart. They tell lies and blow things out of proportion… it’s all good now. But I don’t feel bad about it because I was standing up for my family and I told him a couple of times through Twitter or through friends to please stop bad mouthing Davey{Boy Smith} in his interviews like talk about something else. Or if you had a problem with him why didn’t you talk to him back in 97’.

DAVEY BOY SMITH JR ON WHAT HE’D LIKE TO SEE NATALYA DO AT EVOLUTION AND HIS THOUGHTS ON SHAYNA BASZLER

You know her {Natalya} and Ronda Rousey doing something would be good. Shayna Baszler, she’s really awesome. I went and trained with her, we used to wrestle together… she’s awesome, she became a natural/pro at it because of her MMA background. But also the thing that’s good about her too is that she likes Pro Wrestling.

WWE Rumors: Possible Plans For WWE Evolution Main Event

Published

on

Ronda Rousey WWE RAW Debut

After the news that WWE’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view, Evolution, on October 28th from the Nassau Coliseum will feature a match of past vs. present when Alexa Bliss goes one-on-one with WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus, there’s reportedly been early talk of another such match to main event the show.

According to Dave Meltzer on the newest Wrestling Observer Radio, the main event discussion right now is for Ronda Rousey to take on Nikki Bella in an effort to bring more mainstream media attention to the event:

“So the plan for Ronda Rousey early in the week was Nikki Bella. They’re the two most famous women’s stars in the company and they should be the main event of the first women’s pay-per-view. They are the two best at getting mainstream attention and that was the idea.

There were other options batted around like everything, it could change tomorrow but that was the idea.”

While plans can always change on a daily basis as noted by Meltzer, the thought behind this would be to give Rousey another ‘dream match scenario’ early on in her WWE tenure, especially considering the long-term in-ring future of Nikki Bella due to her battle with neck injuries. Additionally, it’s also being said that the angle could be setup as early as tonight at SummerSlam.

Nikki is of course no longer a full-time competitor after having another scare with her surgically repaired neck in the lead-up to her WrestleMania 33 match last year when she teamed with John Cena to face The Miz and Maryse. Her last match came back in January of this year, taking part in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble where she made it to the final two before being eliminated by Asuka.

Quotes c/o RingsideNews

EA’s Take: Let the pissing and moaning begin (actually, it already has). While I personally don’t care to see the match and think Nikki should just give it up already with the shape her neck is in, that doesn’t mean I don’t understand the decision should this be the case. What better way to draw more attention to the company’s first all-women’s show than with the two most mainstream Superstars? Lest we forget, Nikki was vastly improved in the ring during her last full-time run, so it’s not as if she can’t have a good match. I think people complain just for the sake of complaining at this point.

WWE Rumors: Speculation On An Asuka Heel Turn In The Near Future

Published

on

After going undefeated in the WWE for 914 days, SmackDown Live Superstar Asuka has seen her stock in the eyes of some fans drop considerably, succumbing to multiple losses this year at the hands of Charlotte Flair and current SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella.

While ‘The Empress Of Tomorrow’ was about as hot as any Superstar during her historic run from NXT to the main roster, the entirety of her WWE career has been as a babyface. However, that could very well be changing in the near future.

According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, there’s been talk within WWE of turning Asuka heel. There’s no word on when the switch could take place and very likely wouldn’t be tonight at SummerSlam, as she’s not scheduled to appear. However, it’s been added that WWE does in-fact have plans for her even though she is no longer being booked as unbeatable over the past number of months.

Currently, there’s speculation that the turn could take place before the company’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view, Evolution, taking place on Sunday, October 28th from the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

EA’s Take: I’d certainly be all for an Asuka heel turn, she needs something to happen as all the momentum she had previously is now gone. Not that it’s any surprise, we’ve seen multiple examples of performers who have had a long-running winning streak lose their luster once it comes to an end. Ryback, Goldberg and even Wrath in WCW immediately come to mind. So as I said, I’d be good with a heel turn for her. We already saw it teased previously in NXT during her feud with Bayley, so why not pull the trigger this time.

WWE News: Stipulation Added To Tonight’s Cruiserweight Championship Match

Published

on

With WWE’s SummerSlam now just a mere few hours away from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, there’s been a stipulation added to the scheduled Cruiserweight Championship match on the Kickoff, which will see Cedric Alexander defending against the number one contender, Drew Gulak.

Over the past few weeks on 205 Live, Cedric has had his hands full not only with the challenger, but Gulak’s cohorts in The Brian Kendrick and ‘Gentleman’ Jack Gallagher. Due to Gallagher and Kendrick continuously inserting themselves into Alexander’s matches and in essence his life on the purple brand, General Manager Drake Maverick announced today that both Kendrick and Gallagher have been banned from ringside:

You can catch all the action from the SummerSlam Kickoff live on the WWE Network, as well as on YouTube beginning at 5PM EST. Also, don’t miss Mitchell’s Live SummerSlam Coverage, as well as instant reactions from members of The Chairshot on Twitter (@theCHAIRSHOTcom).
