One of the many released by the WWE of this very hard two-year period, formed by over a year of world pandemic that has literally cut the legs and breath of the Stamford company, like those of all the world pro-wrestling companies in the world, responds to the name of Braun Strowman, former McMahon world champion, who was truncated from the federation roster overnight.
After having had a great stint starting from the 36th edition of Wrestlemania, in which he went to beat none other than Goldberg, at the time Universal Champion of Smackdown, Strowman had slowly come out of the titled round of the blue roster and then also from that of Monday Night Raw, ending up being completely ousted from the plans of the company's management.
Apparently, after the hits made by the AEW of the Khan family, or the Hall of Famers Mark Henry and Christian or the legendary Big Show, the arrival of very important characters such as those of Aleister Black and Chavo Guerrero, in the last hours they would have rumors about a possible landing of Daniel Bryan and CM Punk at Tony Khan's court have also been made more and more insistent, with the management of the WWE that is thinking of running for cover right away.
To prevent another big name like that of Strowman from ending up in the rings of the rival company, going to increase the status of the roster, as well as the fame of the federation, some executives would have expressed the thought of being able to summarize the Monster Among Men as soon as possible, thus not waiting for the end of the non-competition clause with WWE.
From the microphones of the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, we learn that: "There is interest in bringing Braun Strowman back into the company, especially after the recent AEW signings." Apparently, for Vince McMahon it would be more important not to go to oversize and reinforce the rival company, rather than think about the coffers of his company, which would have to pay back hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to pay for in-ring performance.
of a character who apparently has no plans for the booking team for some time now.
Randy Orton on WWE list of inactive-unavailable stars?
In the last episodes of Monday Night Raw, among the many absences in recent months, a very important one was added, of an athlete who in the last calendar year has literally dragged the entire red roster, especially in the period of the so-called ThunderDome Era.
We are talking about the Legend Killer, also called The Viper: Randy Orton. In the last period, the WWE has preferred to get Randy Orton out of the feud with Bray Wyatt, who has also disappeared from the Monday Night Raw TV screens, to then also get him out of the titled round that counts of the red show, however inserting him in a real team unusual and nice with the former US Champion of the same roster, Matt Riddle.
Apparently, in the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania, Orton would have asked the management of the company to take a break, but that break would never have come until now, so it is possible that the management has been waiting for the new developments and the new implications of the storyline.
with Matt Riddle, in order to get his Legend Killer out of the picture for a while. After the last segments he had with Riddle on Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton would literally disappear into thin air, with the storyline carried out by his teammate that led him to confide even in front of the cameras that he had called the police for the disappearance of the partner.
According to reports in the last few hours by several very important online sites, Orton would have been inserted by WWE, internally, in the list of unavailable or inactive Superstars at the moment, which means that even if there should be a problem or an emergency , Orton cannot be called to replace a colleague, as often happens in live events or even in TV tapings.
Furthermore, as confirmed by the well-known overseas podcast, the Fightful Select, it would seem that the return of Randy Orton is much closer than it seems, with the date of the fateful reappearance on Raw which could be that of August 2nd.
Here is what was reported by journalists from overseas: "We have not been told anything about the problems between Orton and the company and the hope is that both sides will work together again in time for next August 2 in the weekly episode of Raw." Probably in the coming weeks we will have further info about Randy Orton and his eventual come back.
