110 – Roman Reigns Non-Story Turns Into Story | Braun Strowman Joust | WWE Signings | Dave Meltzer’s Push for Tessa Blanchard | Rosenberg Eats Foot | Paige | Curious Case of Daniel Bryan Odds
Les Moore breaks down the coverage of the week, including a look at Roman Reigns being alleged to be a customer of jailed a steroids dealer, and how that story developed over the week.
We have a coverage joust on the Braun Strowman segment from WWE Raw this past Monday with clips from Fightful, POST Wrestling, PW Torch’s Fix with Todd Martin & Bruce Mitchell Audio Show as well as F4Wonline’s Wresting Observer Radio.
WWE signings were perhaps most notable this week for who wasn’t signed, after months of speculation and hints that she would be a “no brainer” by Dave Meltzer, Tessa Blanchard was not among the new wrestlers signed this week. We take a look back on the evolution of Meltzer’s coverage of her in the Observer.
Peter Rosenberg doesn’t know who War Machine is, and also believes Ring of Honor is an “indie” promotion.
All reports indicate that Paige is done as an in-ring performer for WWE, but not according to anything WWE has actually said. Though they have yet to deny it, either.
And the Curious Case of Daniel Bryan’s Odds for winning the Royal Rumble, and how little actual information is out there as Bryan Alvarez stumbles his way through speculation for most of the week, and Dave Meltzer admits: he has no idea what’s going on!
