THEORY: Extreme Rules Title Change! Hulk Hogan Has WWE Return Talks! | WrestleTalk News June 2017


Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News! I’m Oli Davis. In an interview with Fightful earlier this
week, former WWF, WCW and TNA booker Vince Russo revealed he recently reached out to
Vince McMahon offering to ‘contribute’ to the current WWE product. Surprisingly, considering this is the man
widely blamed for the death of WCW, Vince McMahon apparently replied. Never one to pull punches, Russo’s frequent
antagoniser Jim Cornette has elaborated a little more on how this exchange came about,
revealing Russo’s efforts were a bit more frequent than he lets on:
“I have this on pretty good authority, Vince Russo emails Vince McMahon every week after
Raw. Still to this day. And he begs constantly for a job…he’s
the only one that hadn’t figured out that everyone’s seen through his f****** bulls***
and don’t want him around…Russo – get a sign and stand on the corner, Main Street
in Stamford, Connecticut, and say ‘will book for food.’” Talking of ghosts from WWE’s past wanting
to come back, the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter writes that speculation is once
again building over Hulk Hogan’s inevitable return to the company. WWE terminated Hogan’s contract in 2015
after racist comments made by the Hulkster were leaked as part of his sex tape trial
against Gawker. He seemed very close to returning for this
year’s Wrestlemania, with his daughter Brooke revealing WWE had contacted him about appearing
on their biggest show of the year, but those plans were obviously dropped. The latest surge in return speculation comes
because the most recent WWE Kids Magazine – which is available in the UK, Spain and
the Middle East, not the US – contained a Hulk Hogan poster, and that “Hogan has said
that he and Vince are talking.” Dave Meltzer maintains that Hogan’s WWE
return isn’t a matter of if, it’s a matter of when – but “that will be determined by
when the company is reasonably sure that bringing him back won’t cause a backlash,” noting
that if the Hulkster is brought back as an Ambassador, they want media questions to be
about WWE, not his leaked racist comments. Despite Raw getting its second lowest rating
of all time this week, Smackdown managed to increase its average viewership ever so slightly
to 2.35 million. You all agreed that it was a mighty fine show,
with 71% rating the episode as SmackTastic, and 19% being slightly less impressed with
Smack Bang in the Middle. We’re back to WWE pay-per-views every other
week, people – yay! Which means even though we’ve barely had
time to recover from Smackdown’s Backlash show, Extreme Rules is this Sunday. You can watch mine and Luke Owen’s predictions
for the show right now by donating $5 or more a month on Patreon – click the link above
my head to learn more – or you can watch it tomorrow when it’s available to everyone. One of the leading theories for the show,
as put forward by F4WOnline, is that Miz will win the Intercontinental Championship from
Dean Ambrose. Their match stipulation is arguably the strangest
on the card, in that the title can change hands on a disqualification. Meaning Miz and Ambrose’s clash on a show
called Extreme Rules is effectively an anti-Extreme Rules match. Elias Samson has been involved in the build
to their match, winning his in-ring debut against Ambrose when Miz gave The Drifter
a double axe-handle to the back, awarding Samson the DQ victory. The following week, before squashing a local
competitor, Elias sung a song with the line “an eye for an eye” – possibly alluding
to him giving The Miz a DQ victory, and thus 7th Intercontinental title reign, in return. What are your predictions for this Sunday’s
show? Tell me Roman Reigns is winning everything
in the comments below. What is Kurt Angle hiding? Find out mine and Luke’s theories in the
brand new WrestleRamble. And a top ROH star might be on his way to
WWE! Find out who by clicking the videos to the
