WWE News: Road Dogg Replies To Fan Criticism Over Becky Lynch’s Booking

Published

Becky Lynch Evolution

Since SummerSlam on August 19th, the booking of WWE Superstar Becky Lynch has remained a hot topic among the WWE Universe.

Of course, we all know Becky turned on Charlotte Flair after losing a Triple Threat for the SmackDown Women’s Title and ever since, many fans have been displeased with the WWE’s attempt at positioning ‘The Lass Kicker’ as a heel. One man who has always gotten the majority of grief or praise for SmackDown Live’s angles is Brian James (Road Dogg), a lead writer for the blue brand.

This week on Twitter, James responded to a number of fan comments regarding Becky’s booking:

EA’s Take: I mean…the guy isn’t wrong. I’ve found the crowd “rebellion” for lack of a better term to be just one of many absurdities when it comes to wrestling fans. We get it, you love Becky and you’re a fan of her, but that’s why you can’t see both sides of the spectrum. I hate to break it to people, but Becky had not been interesting for a long while and now, bam! She attacks Charlotte Flair and is instantly hotter than she’s ever been as a character, gets better reactions than she ever has. It’s not a coincidence that all happened at the same time. To me, it doesn’t matter if a character becomes successful as a heel, babyface, tweener, whatever. Success isn’t specifically exclusive to being a babyface so I don’t understand why people can’t just be happy that she’s in a prime spot. That’s what you should do if you REALLY support her.

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

Did Charlotte Flair have anything to do with this?

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.

Dolph Ziggler Reveals He Was Added To The 2019 Royal Rumble The Night Before

When, and how, was Dolph Ziggler added to the 2019 Royal Rumble match?

In a sit-down interview with Chris Van Vliet (seen above), Dolph Ziggler reveals that he wasn’t booked for the WWE Royal Rumble until the night before, and he earned a payday for his comedy show and the Royal Rumble appearance.

“Oh my God. That’s a great story. Can I tell this story? When I talked to you, I was not booked for the Royal Rumble and I have no reason to lie to anybody or be like ‘Hey listen, I don’t know what the deal is’. I was just on hiatus and I got a call to be there. And if I wasn’t in town for a booking for a comedy show that night I would not have even been in Phoenix. I got a call the night before saying ‘Hey, you gotta get here.’ … I was one of the last people in the ring that night and my comedy show three blocks away had to start an hour late because I was running over with sweat and my bags. I almost went in my gear but I was like I’m going to have to shower.”

Dolph Ziggler hasn’t appeared for WWE since the Royal Rumble, and in the interview above he maintains that he on an extended vacation from the company. You might remember that Ziggler made first contact with Nia Jax during the Rumble, nailing her with a Superkick.

With thanks to WrestleZone for the quote.
