BIG SummerSlam Return?
This week’s Raw gave us the long-awaited return of the Lunatic without a fringe, Dean Ambrose, and if a recent interview is anything to go by, we could be in for another BIG return very soon. Why is it big, you ask?
WEEEEEEEEELLLLLL… because it’s the Big Show
After being written off WWE TV last September to undergo hip surgery, in an angle that saw Braun Strowman throw him through a steel cage, Show was intending to return to the ring for WrestleMania 34. But another injury caused him to not only miss the April event, but also the Greatest Royal Rumble and IT’S BEAUTIFUL CITY OF JEDDAH several weeks later.
That must really hurt. Missing out on all its progressive, forward thinking beauty..
Now 46-years-old, Show has revealed to ESPN, though:
“Hopefully within the next couple of weeks, I will be back in the ring… I’m actually going to try and get cleared Sunday by [WWE’s] doctors; moving around the ring a little bit. I could be back as soon as the Monday Night Raw after SummerSlam, if they have something for me. Just because I’m healthy, doesn’t mean our creative team is healthy for me yet.”
Ain’t that the truth.
Triple H On Neville In WWE
Someone else who’s not being used by WWE right now is former NXT and Cruiserweight Champion Neville. He’s kept a low profile ever since reportedly walking out on the October 9th Raw over booking frustrations. A profile so low, not even his boss knows where he is.
During a conference call yesterday, WWE COO and King of NXT Triple H was asked about the man that gravity and seemingly everyone else forgot, and simply replied that “time will tell” and he’d have to check what Neville’s current status is.
GREAT HR WORK HUNTER.
Making WWE More Like NXT
During that same conference, one caller pointed out he was only looking forward to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn and not SummerSlam, and then asked if Triple H would also prefer WWE if it was booked more like NXT.
Mr H diplomatically replied:
“I also wish I could fly and breath underwater… Dude, I wasn’t sure if you were going to ask me a question or you were making a statement about your displeasure.”
He did go onto say, though, that WWE do listen to their fans… eventually.
“Everybody’s got an opinion and the great thing for us is no matter what it is, positive/negative, we don’t have a shy fan base that is afraid to let us know. They will let us know and whether we decide to take that message immediately or whether it takes us a little bit to hear it, eventually we hear you.”
So WWE will eventually get my 48-page fantasy booking storyline on making referee Rudy Charles the company’s top star, and it will happen!
Also… Roman Reigns heel turn.
