WWE News: Details On Drew McIntyre’s RAW Win, Big Plans In 2019

Published

on

Since the shocking announcement by Roman Reigns two weeks ago on Monday Night RAW, there’s a big gap left to fill at the top of WWE’s roster for the red brand that looks like will be occupied by Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Braun Strowman for the immediate future.

There is another Superstar that many fans feel could also step up and take a top spot, ‘The Scottish Psychopath’ Drew McIntyre. If you remember, it was reported back in May that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was “high” on McIntyre’s future prospects to be a main event talent and according to one report, the start of a huge push for the former NXT Champion has already started.

In picking up a surprising submission victory over WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle on RAW this week, Mike Johnson reported on PWInsider Elite that the win was meant to be a “statement” that McIntyre is a top guy, comparing it to when Brock Lesnar defeated Hulk Hogan on SmackDown in 2002 when he was on his way towards the main event scene.

Additionally, the WrestleVotes Twitter account (who broke the story of McMahon being high on McIntyre) reports that there are big plans in store for Drew in 2019, also seconding Mike Johnson’s report that McIntyre’s push is underway:

EA’s Take: Let the masses rejoice! Most everybody I’ve spoken with that has some sort of sense about the inner workings of this circus we call wrestling have all said Drew’s got “it” (at least the ones I respect). WWE saw it in him during his previous run, but he was just far too young and had an incident beyond his control affect his position (thanks Taryn Terrell!). He’s about to be the poster boy for leaving the company and coming back a whole new man however and I for one, am excited to see Drew get a great run. When you’ve been watching for as long as someone like myself, I’ll take something fresh anytime.

Wrestlemania 35 Main Event Plans

Published

on

We are at that point and time of the year where rumors of Wrestlemania matches begin to swirl. According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that Vince McMahon is heading in the direction of Ronda Rousey vs Becky Lynch as the main event.

The original match plans were for Charlotte to take on Rousey, however, with the injury to Becky Lynch on this weeks RAW, plans have changed.

Jason’s Take
One of the last “first ever” women’s matches/events that WWE has yet to book is a female main event at Wrestlemania. There should be no worry about the Rousey/Lynch feud losing momentum, and in a way, the injury to Lynch on RAW benefits Lynch, Charlotte, and Rousey. Lynch is the most over superstar on both rosters, and the injury only has added fuel to her push. WWE made sure to push her injury on Smackdown this week, and have talked about it all week on WWE.com. It could also be beneficial to Nia Jax, as this can lead to a potential angle with Lynch. If their Twitter exchange this week was any indication, it appears they are headed that way. This does make me ask the question however if WWE has dropped the ball with the women’s revolution by not pushing Becky Lynch sooner, as Lynch has clearly been one of the most talented women on the roster.

Vickie Guerrero Talks Eddie Guerrero On Prime Time With Sean Mooney

Vickie Guerrero talks her late husband, Eddie Guerrero, on the newest Prime Time with Sean Mooney!

On the 13-year anniversary of his untimely passing, Vickie Guerrero was the guest on this week’s Prime Time with Sean Mooney to discuss her late husband, WWE Hall Of Famer Eddie Guerrero.





Among the many parts of Eddie’s career that Vickie spoke on, she discussed Eddie’s rise to “elite” status, including his struggles in WCW and early trouble with WWE:

“I don’t think it was really in WCW. You know, he had a lot of competition, a lot of politics with the bigger guys, you know to get the TV time and to get time just to be in the ring, to be able to show what he wanted to show the fans. But, I think it wasn’t until he jumped to WWE when he was treated, you know, very well and he got to be in the main storylines and when he jumped with The Radicalz that was just a great time, but of course that first night when he went out into the ring that’s when he broke him arm. You know, the elbow fractured and we just kinda sat there going…you know, that was horrible because you know, Eddie was ready for that time to start a new leaf. God humbles you in different ways and you have to kind of be patient and get back up and you try this again, you know. So…but he did love his time in WWE and to work with Chris Benoit, Rey Mysterio, Dean Malenko…I mean, that was his posse.”
