Samoa Joe and Bailey might be moving to WWE main roster;

Samoa Joe and Nakamura gave it all in the ring and created a gem of a wrestling match this Saturday at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II. Finally, Nakamura picked up the victory and became the new NXT Champion. 

Samoa Joe has had an excellent run in NXT, but it seems that he may not be there much longer.

Some reports state that the expectations after WWE Summerslam weekend indicate that both Bayley and Samoa Joe are headed for WWE’s main roster in the very near future.


Randy Orton injury update:
Sunday’s main event ended quite eventfully when, to the surprise of the 15,000 people who were sitting in the audience, Brock Lesner proceeded to elbow Randy Orton in the head till he was literally bleeding all over the place.

Reminiscent of the Attitude era of WWE, a pool of blood was formed in the ring with Orton lying there with a big gash on his forehead while the WWE medical staff were trying to pry Lesnar away from the injured Orton.

Backstage, it was revealed that Orton had to get 10 staples for the gash on his head which will probably put the superstar out of action for a while. It is unclear whether Lesnar with face flak from WWE management for this.


Brock Lesnar might be suspended after the beatdown he delivered to Orton at SummerSlam:

There are rumors surfacing about the fact that Brock Lesnar went off script with the MMA style ‘ground and pound’ pummeling that he delivered to Randy Orton on Sunday at SummerSlam which left him bloodied and broken, ending the match with a TKO.

The match was probably booked to end at the TKO but it would be very unlike WWE in the PG era to have Lesnar shred him to bits like he did. So we shouldn’t be surprised if Mick Foley walks out to the ring during RAW anytime soon to suspend Lesnar or even take away his title shot with Finn Balor.


Sasha Banks removed from upcoming RAW live events: Injured or suspended?

WWE have removed Sasha Banks from the RAW live events starting from tomorrow. The WWE superstar lost her Women’s title to Charlotte at SummerSlam and is now listed to appear at RAW only on September 23rd. Sasha looked to have been injured in that match but now there are rumors saying she might be suspended for violation of a WWE Wellness Policy. 

There is word that Sasha had to give up her title to Charlotte because of past injuries that may be taking a toll on the superstar. 



John Cena retirement rumors:

This Sunday at SummrSlam, AJ Styles beat John Cena in match that was worthy of a “Match of the Year” nomination. Before announcing he was going on hiatus, he fought a great match which ended up elevating AJ Styles’ legitimacy as a ‘main-eventer’ in the eyes of both the WWE management and the fans. Cena even left his ‘Never Give Up’ armband in the center of the ring after the match. 

Maybe this seems to be a passing of the torch of sorts leading up to Cean’s retirement?
