WWE News: Seth Rollins Explains Why He Was ‘Upset’ With Crowd At Extreme Rules

Published

on

It’s been just over a month now since the WWE’s last pay-per-view, Extreme Rules, back on July 15th that featured a 30-Minute Ironman match main event for the Intercontinental Championship between Seth Rollins and the titleholder, Dolph Ziggler. While it was certainly a good match, the biggest story coming out of it was the crowd reaction as they were seemingly more focused on counting down with the match timer for every minute than the action inside the ring.

Many fans were displeased with how the Pittsburgh crowd treated the contest, as well as the participants themselves (go here for Dolph and Seth’s thoughts while in the ring). While speaking with CBS’ In This Corner Podcast this week, ‘The KingSlayer’ elaborated on his feelings about it, stating that he was “upset” with how it played out:

“I think upset is the right way to put it. People are like, ‘did you get mad?’ Naw dude, I just get sad because I love performing and I love having that synergy with the crowd and when they’re, you know paying attention to something else, inexplicably really, it’s frustrating from a performance perspective. Especially when you know you’re in the main event of a pay-per-view for the Intercontinental Championship, it hasn’t been done in twenty-odd years and it’s the match that you know, most people in the building paid money to see, to begin with.

So it still doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t get it. I can’t imagine myself paying money to go to some sort of show or game or concert or something and you know and not paying attention to what’s going on. Again, you know they did buy their tickets they’re allowed to do whatever they wanna do with their time. So it’s sort of a double-edged sword in that sense. They can do what they want, but yeah it definitely makes you question your own validity in that spot.”

EA’s Take: I, for one, am with you Seth. For me watching at home, I found it to be incredibly disrespectful to the performers in the ring and it did not come across well on television. On top of that, all they did was make themselves look like idiots and ruin their credibility as fans. So many people piss and moan about seeing the same people in the main event all the time, so WWE gives you what you seemingly have asked for and that’s how you repay it. Why would they bother listening to the fans again if that’s how they are going to act? The problem is that so many people feel they are in the “majority” without realizing they’re actually in the “minority”.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More! (4/23/2019)

News involving the Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More!

News here! Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More!

Vikings Get A Name Change

Many fans and wrestling personalities commented on the War Raiders name change to the Viking Experience. Now, it looks like the WWE has changed the teams name again. They will now be known as the Viking Raiders according to their WWE.com bio.

Jason’s Take

I get that WWE wants to name outside teams with their own in house names, but I still don’t understand why they were renamed from War Machine. I could have lived with War Raiders as well, but what do I know.

Cesaro Moved To RAW

Earlier today, we told you about the superstars that are moving to SmackDown Live. Now it appears that a superstar from the blue brand will be moving to RAW. POST Wrestling is reporting that Cesaro will be moving to RAW, effectively ending The Bar.

Jason’s Take

Cesaro and Sheamus had a great run as a tag team, and its a shame that both of them are not moving over to RAW, as I feel there is still some mileage left in the team.

AEW Signs 4 More

AEW continues to add talent to what is already shaping up to be an impressive roster. The signings include Leva Bates, Peter Avalon, and the tag team Private Party.

Jason’s Take

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; AEW is already shaping up to have one of the more impressive female rosters in North America. Here is hoping that it will live up to the hype.

WWE Holding Tryout In China

WWE continues to hold tryouts on foreign soil as the company will hold a tryout in China on July 15th to the 18th. According the press release:

SHANGHAI, China and STAMFORD, Conn. — WWE today announced that it will return to China in search of the next generation of Superstars by holding a talent tryout in Shanghai, its largest tryout in China to date. The four-day tryout, from Monday, July 15, through Thursday, July 18, will give up to 50 male and female athletes from China the opportunity to showcase their abilities, with the goal of being selected to begin training at the state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.

“We are excited to return to Shanghai following the huge success of the first tryout in 2016,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “I have a personal message to every athlete and performer in China who has a dream of becoming a WWE Superstar: I am coming to Shanghai to help you make that happen. This is real, this is your chance. Step up and take this opportunity to change your life forever.”

Jason’s Take

This isn’t your father’s WWE. Hell, this isn’t the WWE from when I was younger. WWE continues to search and find talent to bring in to the company. You can say what you want, but the company does a great job in tapping into the foreign talent markets.

Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black Moved to WWE Smackdown

Did Charlotte Flair have anything to do with this?

Published

Andrade Cien Almas Zelina Vega WWE Superstar Shake-Up

Three talents get shaken up once more: Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black head to WWE Smackdown in a WWE Superstar Shake-Up reversal.

In a surprising move, WWE has changed the profiles for Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black to the blue brand, WWE Smackdown. Black was assigned to Raw during the Superstar Shake-Up, and Andrade and Vega were moved there in a spot that saw Andrade get a clean victory over Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor.

The internet, of course, immediately jumps to conclusions about the Latin representation of Smackdown (Rey Mysterio was also moved to Raw), as well as the relationship between Charlotte Flair and Andrade. Aleister and Zelina are married, and WWE has been trying to keep couples together. Do you think Charlotte Flair is responsible for this move?

Greg DeMarco’s Take on this WWE Superstar Shake-Up Reversal

I stand in the middle! I know, I don’t do that often. But Andrade to Raw made a ton of sense, as he can be a workhorse there and eat up TV time by putting on great matches. Smackdown is loaded (even more so), and I really hope 3 people move back to Raw in the process. As for why? This can definitely be a case of “LOLCHARLOTTEWINS” as she and Andrade are of course an item. If so, that shows how strong of a pairing Zelina and Andrade are if she went with him, and since Zelina and Aleister are married, Black goes as well. I could see the four of them traveling together, honestly.
