#4 Vince McMahon blamed for former RAW Superstar Bray Wyatt's release


Former WWE manager Dutch Mantell spoke to SportsKeeda about the release of former RAW superstar Bray Wyatt. Mantell said that Wyatt was not released because of his booking on RAW, but rather it was backstage politics that cost the former WWE champion his job in WWE.

"You can't blame the booking. You gotta blame Vince," Mantell said. "It's politics. Something happened in there along the way that Bray Wyatt, as himself and Bray Wyatt as the Fiend or whatever - he just didn't have their trust. Whether that is warranted or not, he didn't have it."

He further stated that Wyatt should consider himself lucky that he had a job with WWE for 12 years and even after being released he has a landing place in AEW.

#3 RAW superstar Jinder Mahal ready for a match against Brock Lesnar


Sportskeeda's Riju Dasgupta caught up with RAW Superstar Jinder Mahal. The Modern Day Maharaja talked about his desire to face Brock Lesnar in a first-time ever match. The two men were set to face each other at Survivor Series 2017, but AJ Styles replaced Mahal as Lesnar's opponent last-minute.

"Yeah, absolutely [still wants to face Brock Lesnar]," Mahal said. "I was very much looking forward to the match with Brock Lesnar. Unfortunately, I lost the WWE Championship in the meantime, but I think someday that match with Brock Lesnar still could happen."

Mahal also said he wants Brock Lesnar to make his WWE return soon. The Maharaja feels that The Beast Incarnate's return is imminent and long overdue.
