Top 5 WWE Rumors of the Week and Analysis: 24 May, 2015
Elimination Chamber proved to be the major talking point in the rumor mill this week. WWE did not get proper time to build up the pay-per-view but they have managed to pile up a lot of hype about it. There are still questions about how successful the event will be since it will be a Network exclusive, but no matter what happens, WWE has been doing a great job hyping the pay-per-view.
We are almost a week away from the actual show and there have been a lot of speculation about it. The possible surprises, twist and turns that could go down at Elimination Chamber was the major source of rumors this week while there was mentions of Money in the Bank as well. As usual, here is a look back at the top stories from the past week and their potential.
Big appearance at Elimination Chamber match
Samoa Joe’s big appearance in the WWE made the internet go mad past week. The fans found it hard to stop talking about him and there are a lot of rumours going around. The most exciting one from the lot is about his appearance at Elimination Chamber. There is a big chance of Joe appearing at Money in the Bank and interfering in the Kevin Owens vs. John Cena match.
It might be the easy route for WWE to keep both Cena and Owens safe as both superstars cannot take a loss at the Chamber. Apart from this, Joe’s current deal with WWE is similar to the one that Rhyno is having which means that Joe will be appearing in NXT and he will take up independent bookings for the time being.
Reason for Neville’s exclusion from Intercontinental title Match
A lot of eyebrows were raised when Neville was excluded from the Elimination Chamber match for the Intercontinental championship. Most of the fans felt that he deserved a place there and not seeing him get a spot was a real surprise. The reason for his exclusion from the match is because WWE wants to protect Neville.
Even if he had competed in the match, Neville was not going to win the title. WWE did not want Neville to take such a loss and decided to put him in a program with Bo Dallas instead. Neville is expected to come out on top against Bo and will be involved in some major angle later.
