WWE News: Who Was Behind Ronda Rousey/Bella Twins’ Lines On RAW?

Published

on

While everything WWE does always has its naysayers, the overall sentiment coming out of this week’s episode of RAW was that the segment between RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and The Bella Twins, building to Ronda’s match against Nikki at Evolution, was the best part of the broadcast.

The segment not only had social media talking, but also gained massive numbers on YouTube (see EA’s Weekly RAW YouTube Report here) as the banter between Ronda and The Bellas was more of the “worked shoot” variety and utilized elements of real life in their words. This will likely come as no surprise to many fans, but The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the man behind the segment was none other than Paul Heyman, however Ronda actually wrote the promo herself.

It’s being said that Heyman has been producing segments with Ronda lately due to their familiarity with one another and this past Monday that included giving her key parts to focus on. For example, the lines Rousey used that got the WWE Universe talking about “John Cena’s bedroom” were from Heyman. Additionally, Heyman worked with The Bellas as well, giving them their lines regarding the Divas era.

As has been noted, Heyman began working more in a backstage role for the company leading up to what was believed to be Brock Lesnar’s departure at SummerSlam in August. Currently, it’s not known when Heyman will be back on television as he has not been confirmed for Lesnar’s next match against Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman for the Universal Title at Crown Jewel on November 2nd.

WWE News: New WWE Champion Crowned Tonight On SmackDown Live

Published

AJ Styles
The WWE Championship changed hands tonight on SmackDown Live!

Following the announcement that Becky Lynch is officially out of Sunday’s Survivor Series (see that here), WWE Champion AJ Styles made his way to the ring on SmackDown Live to address his upcoming match against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.





‘The Phenomenal One’ spoke about coming up short against Lesnar last year and how he has prepared this time around, leading to an unwelcome interruption from Brock’s advocate, Paul Heyman. Paul would antagonize Styles and claim that AJ barely got by Daniel Bryan. This would bring Bryan out to the ring and eventually, the tensions turned away from Heyman, boiling instead between the champion and Daniel.

The two couldn’t contain their tempers and a brawl broke out that was a struggle for officials to break apart, even spilling over into Commissioner Shane McMahon’s office backstage. With so much chaos going on, Shane finally decided the two would meet again tonight with the title on the line, Daniel giving up his spot on Team SmackDown in the process.

Just as we saw two weeks back on SmackDown Live, Styles and Bryan again left it all out in the ring with another epic confrontation. However, this time we got a different result as neither man was able to get a tap out win. As Styles set up for the Phenomenal Forearm, Bryan would duck, causing the official to get bumped instead. Daniel would then shockingly use a low blow followed by a running knee to win the championship. After the match, he would show his true colors and viciously assault Styles. Additionally, that means Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will now face Bryan this Sunday at Survivor Series.
