Braun Strowman OUT Until WWE Royal Rumble?! WrestleMania 35 Main Event LEAKED?! | WrestleTalk 2018


Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News. I am El Fakidor Laurie Blake.
And coming up on this longer, almost festive episode of Jesus, King of the News: Becky
Lynch calls out both Ronda and Charlotte?! Triple threat didn’t do her wonders last
time. Braun Strowman to be out until the Royal Rumble?! And the WrestleMania 35 Main Event
leaked?! But before we get onto Becky Lynch’s ongoing
flame war with Rousey and Flair. Look at what Sarah Logan got for an early xmas present.
She’s got a flamethrower! The Riott Squad member posted the pic on her
Instagram and it’s far more anarachic than bin kicking and condiment wastage. So, you’re
thinking it, I‘m thinking it, new gimmick for the Riott Squad? Like a Mad Max vibe Riott
Squad? Though if it’s anything like the Rock’s
flamethrower from WrestleMania 32, it’ll take absolutely ages to set off, by that time
the person or curtains you’re trying to set on fire will have got out of the way.
Not even Kane would be caught by that flamethrower. And he’s basically human magnesium.
Now, most people would say that the main reason the Riott Squad haven’t lived up to their
potential as flamethrower punks is because of the writing.
Well, as we found out this week courtesy of Jimmy Jacobs, writing a three hour wrestling
TV show every week is f-ing hard. A comment which caused a bit of a storm in
the wrestling world, so Jacobs decided to join Bryan Alvares on Wrestling Observer Live
to clarify some of what he meant. He said there are 25 writers split into two
teams – the home team who stay in Stamford, Connecticut and the road team that travels
with Raw and Smackdown and produces the TV. He then went into much, much more specific
detail: “It’s a seven day a week job. So, while
the road team is at RAW, the home team is back at Stamford, and they’re helping out
with rewrites on Monday & Tuesday, but by Wednesday the home team will have an idea
of what they want to pitch to Vince. They’ll have a meeting with Vince and then he’ll
give us feedback. Sometimes he’ll want to change a lot, sometimes it’s a little. Then
on Thursday, the lead writers are putting together the pieces of what RAW is going to
look at. Then Friday to Saturday we are putting pen to paper, and writing the promos. By Saturday
evening, all the writers will send in the promos, and then by Sunday the lead writers
will put it all together into a proper script. They’ll send that to Vince, and then by
Monday then there’s the production meeting for RAW by 1pm. We go through the plan, and
then all the writers and agents will give their feedback. Based off those suggestions,
Vince will make changes, and then as a writer on the road, I’ll implement those changes.
We compile those changes and put it in a new version of the script. Then I tell talent
what they’re doing.” Sounds like the rubbish first draft of Craig
David’s Seven Days. To make this Raw on Monday. Rewriting things on Tuesday. We then
pitched to Vince on Wednesday. And on Thursday and Friday and Saturday, still scripting on
Sunday. But it does kind of give you an idea of how
intense the process can be, and how little time the talent can actually have to memorise
their promos and work on delivery, intonation, or work out why their character would even
be doing that? Much respect. Jacobs also said that it’s an “extremely
difficult task to come up with new ideas, concepts and new matches for 3 hours each
week. But yeah, it’s difficult writing for Vince. The prevailing goal is ‘Is Vince
going to like this?’ So, [you’re writing things going] ‘Will Vince gonna yell about
this?’” Yes he will. But the excuses about the product were so
last week, this week it was all about the heroic McMahon family fixing WWE.
That’s why a bunch of NXT superstars were announced as being called up to the main roster
soon: you had EC3, Lars Sullivan, Heavy Machinery, Lacey Evans and Nikki Cross, flipping finally.
Though I guess getting her to change roster is like herding cats.
EC3 was very EC3 about the news posting on Twitter: “Congratulations to me” One name conspicuous by its absence was the
Velveteen Dream, proving the rule don’t believe everything you read on someone’s
legs. Dream obviously incensed by being passed over
for promotion Tweeted during Raw to get the WWE universe onside:
“It’s Not His (Vince’s) Call 2 Make. It’s URs,
So let ur voices B heard….#[email protected] Universe.” NXT’s Mensa level monster Lars Sullivan
also had something to say about his call up, a now deleted tweet which said:
“I’m admittedly being insincere. Everyone in NXT can kiss my ass, especially the 5 who
stole my thunder. And all of you can kiss my ass. I hope your holidays are as miserable
as mine. See you soon, WWE.” Merry Xmas! Someone is getting coal this year.
Which is fine, he eats coal. It seems it’s a bit of a one in one out
policy when it comes to monsters though, because while Lars is on his way in…. Veeeeerrrrrryyy
sllllloooooowwwwlllly, Braun Strowman is still out recovering from injury.
And apparently will be until at least the Royal Rumble.
After the TLC match with Baron Corbin where a slinged-up Strowman got his mates to duff
up Bazza Corbs, WrestleVotes tweeted: “As we said, Strowman wouldn’t compete. Source
says he’s not cleared until the Rumble.” Which seems fair enough, last I saw his arm
was a crazy shade of purple. Hopefully Braun hurries back soon, as he’s
exactly the sort of big draw that could help stabilise the viewing figures which have been
nosediving for the past few weeks, but did get a little boost at the hands of Vinnie
Mac this week. The audience was up 16 percent from last week’s
record low of 2.19 million viewers, ending up at 2.55 million viewers, the best figure
since the RAW following Hell in a Cell. The first hour of this week’s show with
the McMahon family promising the world and delivering… Raw… was strong but actually
below that of the November 12 and November 19 shows.
But the drop off this week wasn’t as bad as it has been recently and the third hour, with
the women’s gauntlet match, was the best hour three since October 22.
So really it was the lower level of drop off that lead to it being the highest rated RAW
in the last three months and not, one Vincent McMahon.
It was a similar deal with viewership over on Smackdown which was back up to 2.281 million
this week, an increase of 15 percent after falling below the 2 million mark for the past
couple of weeks. And with an 89 percent retention rate of the
Raw audience, it was right in the range of what SmackDown has been doing recently. But you can have call ups, and Strowmans,
and as many McMahon’s as you like, get Linda involved, doesn’t matter. Because the saving
grace of WWE is what’s going on between Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair. Sadly there was no showdown between all three
players following TLC where Rousey cost The Man and the Queen the Smackdown Women’s
Title. Thankfully, for this feud at least, social
media exists and that’s where the face off continued. Rousey took to Instagram to explain her actions
at the pay-per-view: “#TLC wasn’t revenge, it was a warning.
@charlottewwe @beckylynchwwe You’re both lucky I let you off so easy. Asuka deserves
to be champion more than either of you cheating cowards. And @beckylynchwwe says SHE came
at ME head on!? @beckylynchwwe has only ever attacked me when my back was turned – that’s
some more #BackwardsBullshitBecky. If you and @charlottewwe are smart you’ll consider
the score settled, learn this lesson, move on…. and don’t provoke me again.
Check link in bio for context.” Slight swerve at the end there. ‘I hate
you, I wish you were dead, check link for reasons’ But it was a solid volley from Rousey but
she is up against Becky, the queen of trash talk, Stig of the dumping on Rousey. Lynch retorted with this picture of her owning
Ronda and Rousey’s ‘pants not down’ [030] Saying: “I remember now you said I attacked
you with your “pants down,” you little weirdo. Not going to lie though, I did walk
in to your dressing room and see an ass – but it was fully dressed.” [030] Not quite done though she also took a sideways
shot at Charlotte. “Hey Charlotte, I’ve replied to Ronnie
now, so you can come along behind me, copy me, and put wooo at the end. You know like
you do in work.” She’s like Equilibrium with these Twitter
shots – Gun Kata. But it seems like this three way slanging
match will actually go somewhere. According to Jon Fisher of Oh you didn’t know,
WWE has already informed 7-time Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair that she’ll be main eventing
WrestleMania 35 Now obviously we had rumours of this from
around summer this year saying that Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte would be the main event
of Mania. But that all seemed to change once Becky Lynch
came on the scene and the massive reaction the WWE Universe had to the idea of her facing
off against Ronda at Survivor Series. So people thought they might main event Mania. But then Becky’s face got broke and Charlotte
replaced her and got a huge reaction for kendo-Ing Rousey to within an inch of her life. And it seems like WWE still plan on having
Charlotte main event. As Jon Fisher says: “A good source told me within the last week
or so that despite the booking of the TLC match with Charlotte, Asuka, and Becky Lynch
before the Charlotte/ Ronda Rousey match at Survivor Series that Charlotte was told that
she’d be in the main event of WrestleMania.” Brad Shepard also reportedly added that he
heard there were even plans for a triple threat match at WrestleMania between Lynch, Flair
and Rousey. Which is always a good way to protect someone. But it still seems a bit up in the air what
we’ll actually be getting at Mania. Charlotte vs Rousey, Becky vs Rousey or a triple threat
with all three. The good thing to come out of it all though
is that all the evidence is pointing to the women of WWE main eventing on the grandest
stage of all. Which is just awesome. Johnny wrestling doing wrestling but not at
WWE? Apparently. You can find out where and how by clicking the video onscreen now. And

100 thoughts on “Braun Strowman OUT Until WWE Royal Rumble?! WrestleMania 35 Main Event LEAKED?! | WrestleTalk 2018

  1. These three women absolutely deseve to be main eventing the WM35…but i fear they will again screw Becky, just like they r screwing Braun Strowman again n again favouring these shield guys

  2. Why would anyone want to come to main roster? NXT is where talent stays and grows unlike raw where the top guys come just to become jobbers

  3. Wouldn't it be more simple to designate a couple writers to each storyline from start to finish to have a beginning, middle and ending? The plot holes are big enough to drive a truck through. They definitely need to make a change.

  4. I say have Asuka feud with Cross or Lacey and have one of them one on one with Asuka at Wrestlemania. Either could be good challenge for the Champ. Then after Mania it is back to The Man to reclaim her title =D

    Also ME at Mania Charlotte Vs Becky Vs Rousey = Yes.

  5. Hopefully "Yawn" Strowman is gone for awhile, he's booked so bad and shoved down our throats so much that we all could use a Break. Maybe he can use the time to learn more than the same 5 moves over and over again…

  6. Anyone else think that The Riot Squad are what someone who's never had a non conformist thought in there head and are scared of anything that could possibly offend someone…..somewhere……at some point sees in there mind when they imagine anarchist or punks. "Ooooh dear they tipped a table! Why? Why would they do that? There might have been food on there! Wow thats just…..thats just barbaric and unthinkable……I……cant……..comprehend why someone would…..MARGRET, GRAB THE KIDS AND RUN! DONT LET THEM SEE THIS……..AAARRRGGGGHHHH WHY GOD! IS THIS THE END OF TIIIIIIIIIIIIIMES!"

  7. Idk man. I'd rather it just be Becky Vs. Ronda. Like we already got to see a Charlotte vs Ronda fight. I just don't think Charlotte should be included into everything. Like it would be more intense if it's just Becky and Ronda duking it out. Just my opinion tho. 🤷‍♀️

  8. Dream deserves to be in heat/trouble bc he is greedy and not patient and yet he has barely been on TV yet wants to skip the process which is total disrespect to all the other wrestlers. They dont ask fans to be called up like a maggit

  9. I think the best way to put this is, WWE needs a type of "Lore Keeper". Stop giving the fans nonsense and use these performers proper.

  10. Charlotte is to me what Roman Reigns is (was) to most of WWE's fan base. She's a needless third wheel in the Becky v Ronda feud.

  11. November
    Laurie " I'm el fakador "
    Me " I hates him "

    December
    Laurie " jesus king of the news "
    Me " gawd dammit I love it "

  12. Start of RAW…10 minutes of Corbin cutting a bad promo, first match Baylee and Banks vs Riot Squad, back stage promo with Corbin and random baby face that he puts in a match with Lashley…Roll up win by baby face. Corbin comes out changes rules Lashley wins with a low blow from Leo Rush. Corbin smiles for 2 minutes looking dumb at top of the ramp. Ronda Rousey cut promo on Flair and Lynch interrupted by Natalya(5 min bad promo)….Seth Rollins vs Ziggler with Rollins losing due to Ambrose music interruption…..there's half a RAW episode written in 5 minutes

  13. Main Card

    Becky vs Ronda
    Brock vs Seth
    AJ vs Bryan vs Mysterio
    Charlotte vs Asuka II
    Taker vs McIntyre

    PreShow

    205 Live Spot Match

    Samoa Joe vs Rusev Submission Match

  14. WWE must be get rid of shitty "PG" kids and must be going back to TV-14. Hope, they will bring back an era like Attitude or Ruthless Aggression.

  15. It's to the point now where there is no need for the guys on the show. The writers suck, it's all women. It's a flash back of GLOW and POWW. The women need their own show so we can get back to wrestling.

  16. Sorry this becky train is a fucking joke tbh headline wrestlemania vs rousey … absolute joke am sorry . Alright for you arm chair supporters but for people who actualy spend thousands togo mania every year to see becky lynch vs rousey main event is a travesty . Sad to see how far the companys falling down the toilet along with the ratings . Not suprised

  17. It'll be a lame ass triple threat at Mania because WWE won't just give us the Ronda Rousey-Becky Lynch feud and the Asuka-Charlotte match where Asuka gets her redemption for last year. This is not complicated yet they're going to make it and SDL's women's division will be thrown aside for one good match.

  18. Ronda vs Charlotte at wm as they are about to start Stephanie comes out and says I hear your all chanting we want Becky then Beckys music plays and Stephanie says if it’s Becky u want it’s Becky u get and then gets added at the very last second with a huge pop from the crowd

  19. Charlotte main eventing WM? Clearly wwe isnt listening to me, Charlotte sucks and is a man. I'm tired of her horrible woos and her man appearance wrestling other real women except for rousey she sucks just as bad.

  20. Well how about quit having 5 min squash matches…or feuds that havent had a beginning middle and end in 2 weeks to jam into a PPV.

  21. Oh wow a woman’s main event for Wrestlemania, big deal, more botched spots and will have the lowest buy rate in Wrestlemania history due to Stephanie McMachon being to stupid in not knowing that WOMEN DON’T WATCH WRESTLING. So sick of this faux feminism Bullshit. Hope WWE goes out of business.

  22. Triple Threat? Charlotte has won 4 of 5. Ronda, I don't think has ever had one to win, which kind of puts her on the same level as Becky, who ALWAYS seems to lose those damn things.

    I can tell you guys are Becky Twitter fanboys, because 2 weeks back Charlotte zinged Becky pretty damn good…It seems her new insane persona has snapped her out of Tweeting like an android…. And again I have a hard time buying it when screams Roddy Piper cosplayer at Ronda, considering she walks around making Adrian Adonis faces, and pointing as emphatically at herself as Ronda pointed at the Wrestlemania sign at Rumble this year.

    In short The EX CHAMP is STILL THE CHUMP and if what that "Balboa" has can be considered Twitter Game then I'm Apollo Creed.

  23. Too many people the process shouldnt take this long. And after going through all this for 7 days Vince changes everything. I'm like bro just write it yourself

  24. We all know Undertaker vs Sting is what everyone wants for mania, but who thinks HBK vs Sting would be a decent match? Who who who?!

  25. If the triple threat match headlines wrestlemania then it should go like this:
    Becky wins the RR (She chooses to face Ronda)
    Charlotte wins the elimination chamber (She also chooses to face Rousey)
    I personally think that Becky vs Ronda is the better option to headline wm and that way charlotte can win the elimination chamber and face asuka, so it can be charlotte vs asuka pt2

  26. They should do the scripting at least a month in advance. Split the teams up into 4 with for senior writers that been a part of the business 4 / at least 5 to 10 years giving more creative writing control back to Paul Heyman Dave Meltzer maybe a wrestler like Matt Hardy who's been great at booking wrestling shows since he was a Youngster and another guy named Jim cornette which I don't see happening. Make it kind of a competition like they used to do with Tough Enough. Instead of having wrestlers having competitions with the writers that they want on their team. Maybe that would make things a little bit more creative. Have them lobbying and working for good jobs. Have Matt Hardy and rehired Dave Meltzer coming together to bring the best writing they can for Smackdown live. And having two of the old dogs in the company Paul Heyman and Jim cornette which would also be hilarious on the show to help out with the Raw scripting if they can get along and not punch each other in the nose and do all that crazy stuff like cursing each other out. It would make for one entertaining show.

  27. John 14:6 King James Version (KJV)

    6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

  28. Women's wrestling is a joke. No wonder WWE's ratings are plummeting. What a gay-ass WM main event. I thought Cena and Miz was the lowest they could go but damn, they were able to make it worse.

  29. Listen to the 'fans' WWE, it's Becky vs Ronda main event at Mania! Don't screw this up or someone is getting their face broken.🐱‍👤

  30. Everyone seems to be forgetting Vince considers there to be like four "Main Event" matches at WrestleMania. Not just the match that goes on last.

  31. Larz is going to flop when he hits the main show… They'll try like hell to make people think he's "something" but in the end he'll be jobbing out to guys like Titus O'neil.

  32. Anyone notice Braun Strowman the Showman is an actor in movies now? Check out the trailer for Holmes and Watson. Guess if you are injured,
    you have to find work outside WWE?
    The McMahons claimed the shows demise is because of Baron, yet you just showed how Vince's involvement is worse than Jerry Jones lol. Corbin did a good job selling his script. He got a lot of crowd pop booing him. McMahons will never relinquish their involvement. Same old same old. WWE believes pushing the divas is the current moneymakers because the male wrestlers are boring. Guess what? we are tired of the Mannish females.
    btw wwe tv shows raw is 1 hour thirty minutes per episode. so 1hour thirty minutes is for commercials. wwe tv shows smackdown is also one hour thirty minutes with 30 minutes for commercials. that is three hours for both shows combined. And to lessen this tedious job of scripting, consider the irritating replays showed during each episode where before every match a show recap is given with an irritating announcer gives the replay you just saw ten seconds ago. So your opinion that scripting for 5 hours a week just got bumped to scripting for less than 3 or even 2 hours a week. real tough to do a week with 25 scripters which you just confirmed that.

  33. They earned it not bcz they are women bcz they are great wrestlers. Don't bring feminism here .
    2nd it should be triple threat

  34. The script journey, holy crap. Worse than I thought. I thought there were 128 writers? so 25 spread over two teams. That has got to change

  35. Dude, I dont think you guys understand that nfl playoffs have been shaping up the last month. And Monday night football has been a big deal in the u.s.a.. not saying wwe doesn't suck, but it's hard to impossible to compete with the NFL

  36. The Main Event of WrestleMania should be The Undertaker vs John Cena in a Retirement match, where Cena gets the victory and Taker finally and officially retires from WWE. Basically the Shawn Michaels retiring Ric Flair and Taker retiring Michaels; a legend should retire a legend.

    I do think Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch would be a great WrestleMania match, and I hope that Becky would win the match (although I think Ronda would actually retain the Championship).

    Also, we should have Daniel Bryan vs AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe in what could be the greatest Triple-Threat match ever seen, for the WWE Championship (with Joe winning).

  37. Imagine Roman reigns return at Royal rumble and win it then he goes to wrestlemania and main event again. That would be shit

  38. If becky is the main draw, then yes the raw figures will go down there's no male main draw anymore. Why the hell are you men even watching women's wrestling ? What happened to the attitude era and the old days of WCW and ECW in the bingo halls ? Fuck WWE the drive for women to be in wrestling has destroyed the product. Miss the days of sting, undertaker, triple h, rock , stone cold, HBK now its a pageant beauty contest for the divas.

  39. 0:34… Too bad Sarah Logan still can’t wrestle. #BreakUpTheRIOTTSquad so Ruby can focus on her solo career + finally start making her path towards that Belt! Liv & Sarah can form their own tag team w/a different name; of course Ruby RIOTT would own the copyright 2 the #RIOTTSquad .

  40. 7:33 … FINALLY Ronda says something that makes sense. Becky from time 2 time becomes #CheaterLynch …did we already 4-get #SUPERShowdown ?!? I know I didn’t.

  41. Meanwhile they fucked Sasha over. She should be getting time in the limelight again, but nope. Let's push Charlotte again smh.

  42. I dont want ronda as the main event she is overrated and still very green and mocks everything about wrestling and makes it like ufc. Ufc is awesome but i like the differences dont want ufc to act more like wwe or vice versa

  43. It needs to be Becky Vs Rhonda for the main event at wrestlemania. Becky wins back the smackdown championship before mania. Have the survivor series match we should of had but at mania. Becky wins over rousey holding both titles in the air as "The Man." But seriously the way things are going now. It should be Becky to end Rhondas streak.
