WWE TLC 2017 Shakeup: Wyatt, Dallas & Reigns OUT, Styles & Angle IN

Due to a viral meningitis outbreak involving Bo Dallas, Bray Wyatt, and Roman Reigns, WWE has drastically changed plans for this Sunday’s TLC RAW exclusive pay per view on the WWE Network.

Instead, Kurt Angle makes his long awaited return to the ring in place of Reigns while the Bullet Club leader match that hardcore fans have been waiting for in WWE for over a year will now happen (with no build) between original leader Finn Balor (aka Prince Devitt) and the 2nd unofficial leader “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles.

We examine these changes, what it means for the card, and the good and bad of giving away two highly anticipated in-ring performances with no build whatsoever.

With the real life feud between WWE and The Bullet Club, fans today are getting the first taste of an actual interpromotional rivalry between companies in many years.

In a surprise move this past week, Triple H announced that the next NXT TakeOver special on the WWE Network will be subtitled “War Games”.

Sting in War GamesThe match made famous in Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA during the 80s, later carried by WCW in the 90s, was at one time considered one of the most brutal matches in wrestling.

We look at the history of War Games, what it is, and how the teams involved in this new version might likely change the game of this iconic pro wrestling match.


The Young Bucks Being Sued by WWE for RAW Invasion?

The Bullet Club held an “invasion” of WWE Monday Night RAW this past week, much in the style of WWE/F’s own invasion of Monday Nitro back in 1998.

However, Vince McMahon and the higher ups may not have been so pleased with the stunt as it appears they have sent a cease and desist letter to The Young Bucks over the “suck it” gesture, the “too sweet” hang gesture, and various other issues that may see Nick and Matt sued for $150,000.


Vince McMahon Wants To Make WWE Pay Per Views Great Again

WrestleMania stageRecent rumors have reported that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon wants to increase the quality of main event matches for WWE’s secondary pay per views.

Usually, during the time after Summer Slam and before Survivor Series, WWE shows tend to be a bit down in quality and importance. The recent No Mercy pay per view which featured two “Wrestlemania” quality matches (Reigns vs. Cena, Strowman vs. Lesnar) is part of an apparent new initiative to increase slumping house show attendance, WWE Network subscriptions, and RAW and SmackDown LIVE ratings.

Recently on Twitter, a conversation between Daniel Bryan and Kenny Omega got a few people wondering whether or not this match may actually happen in 2018.

With Bryan’s contract coming up, his tendency to not hold back on commenting about what he really thinks, and Omega wanting to expand NJPW as much as he can during his time there, could it be possible to see a match between the two next year?
