6 wrestling rumors we hope are true and 6 we hope aren't: Why Vince McMahon was "angry" at Seth Rollins, RAW superstars' push reportedly "over"
Welcome to this week's edition of wrestling rumors we hope are true and those we hope aren't! It's certainly been an interesting week of wrestling and as of this writing, the month of November has officially wrapped up.
In the world of wrestling this past month, the primary focus has been on WWE Survivor Series and the Interbrand Warfare, where NXT was a huge addition to the show. The Yellow and Gold brand made the build far more exciting and the PPV had a big boost as well.
The big surprise was when NXT walked out of Survivor Series as the big dominant victors, with RAW having their poorest performance in years. All of this, however, was for a reason and even with AEW, television programming and quality are only expected to increase as the year concludes.
So let's begin with the first edition of this series for December!
#6. Hope is true: Why Vince McMahon was angry at Seth Rollins this past RAW
Seth Rollins opened RAW this past week hosting a "Town Hall Meeting" where he had the entire locker room (minus Becky Lynch) at ringside and began to berate everyone for their disappointing Survivor Series performance.
It was a reflection of real-life and in the segment, he lost the locker room with his harsh words but "good intentions". One of the interesting parts of the segment was when the Chicago crowd chanted "CM Punk" only for Rollins to ad-lib and go with it, acknowledging their chants and stating that he already called him out.
"I tried to get him (Punk) here, I'm sorry, he didn't want to show up. He wants to sit behind a desk in Los Angeles and talk about a change he's too afraid to make himself."
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon was angry at Rollins because the rule of thumb is to never tease a match that they can't promise to deliver. We hope this is true because, for all his faults, this is a fair rule to set. Rollins shouldn't make impulsive acknowledgments to get a pop.
