MISSED ALL THE BIG NEWS IN WRESTLING? DO NOT FEAR WE WILL COVER ALL THE BIG STORIES IS ONE PLACE; THIS IS THE WRESTLING NEWS UPDATE!
With Vince and family returning to WWE TV last night, many were praying for the much-discussed shakeup and what it may entail. Wasting little time, Vince chose to kick the show off, and promptly called out the rest of the extended family. Stephanie admitted that they hadn’t been listening to the fans. Triple H said that that four of them (Vince, Steph, Hunter, and Shane), were taking back Monday Night Raw. Shane stated that what applied to RAW, applied to SmackDown as well. Triple H and Steph continued, saying that they’d be giving power back to the superstars and to expect new faces, superstars, and matches. What this all means is any one’s guess, although a shakeup was promised, with a McMahon centric, in-ring promo that went through the first ad break kicking off the episode, no one is sure if it started this week or if we should hold our breath at all.
NXT STARS MOVING TO THE MAIN ROSTER
With Triple H stating that we should expect new superstars on RAW and SmackDown during this week’s SmackDown, WWE wasted little time in announcing the first group. During the episode, Lacey Evans, Heavy Machinery, Nikki Cross and EC3 were all revealed as imminent main roster call-ups. Which show they may end up on wasn’t discussed, but with the rest of Sanity appearing on SmackDown, this is surely the logical choice for Cross at least. Dixie Carter, EC3’s aunt, Tweeted the following in congratulations:
