WWE CHEAT Fans With Brock Lesnar Cash-In! More NXT Call-Ups?! | WrestleTalk News June 2019

Brock Lesnar’s Money in the Bank cash-in
is announced for this episode of Raw! Brock
Lesnar’s Money in the Bank cash-in doesn’t
happen on this episode of Raw! But it’s
OK, because – Pull up your pants and do the
muscle man dance!
And which NXT stars might be getting called
up to the main roster soon?!
Click the timestamps in the video description
below to go straight to any of those stories.
I’m Oli Davis – give us a subscribe, press
the thumbs up button, and answer our question
of the day in the comments: Will Brock Lesnar
win the Universal title this Friday? Because
I’ll be replying to people FROM OUTTA NOWHERE!
And click the ‘i’ above my head to give
your rating of the show – where you can choose
from: RawSome, Cor, AVRAWGE, Poor and RawFul
– as I review the Super Showdown go-home episode
of Monday Night Raw!
A big part of this episode was how WWE announced
in advance that Brock Lesnar would finally
be cashing in his Money in the Bank boombox
on Raw – I’m sure they’ll totally deliver
on that! – because Stephanie McMahon is sick
of him disrespecting the briefcase… a briefcase
whose gimmick has historically been based
around not telling people when they’re going
to cash-in. It makes so little sense, even
Raw commentator Corey Graves is confused.
Corey Graves to AEW confirmed. And I’m pretty
sure Stephanie was a heel the last time we
saw her. And who attacked Sami Zayn at Money
in the Bank!?
So Brock cashing-in, potentially wrestling
his first WWE TV match in over 15 years, was
the expectation set for this episode. Not
us getting carried away with fantasy booking
– something WWE directly promised its fans.
Keep that in mind.
The actual show kicked off with SmackDown
star Roman Reigns, but, let’s be honest,
Raw star Roman Reigns, where he was immediately
interrupted by his Super Showdown opponent,
SmackDown star Shane McMahon, but, let’s
be honest, Raw star The OmniShane!
A six-man tag quickly got underway, where
Reigns teamed with his real-life cousins the
Usos to take on their fierce back-shaving,
cornhole-playing rivals The Revival featuring
Drew McIntyre.
WWE are very good at six-man tags, and this
match got suitably frantic near the end, with
Drew eventually winning. Shane then speared
Roman for good measure.
I’m very much not into the Shane vs Roman
feud, which is pulling significant TV time
on Raw and SmackDown into the OmniShane’s
Midcard Vortex, and now they’re obviously
setting up Reigns vs McIntyre post-Showdown.
Which isn’t even remotely exciting because
they’re on separate brands, we’ve already
seen that, it had a decisive finish of Roman
winning clean, and, most importantly, it was
Super boring.
Lars Sullivan continued to beat up ethnic
minorities next, brawling with the Lucha House
Party ahead of their match at Super Showdown.
Becky Lynch came out to promise when she gets
her hands on Lacey Evans, she’ll knock her
silly. For Lacey Evans to then come out and
stand just a few feet across from her in the
ring. She’s right there, Becky, you can
beat her up if you’re that angry.
This turned into a terrible heel vs heel match
between Evans and Charlotte, which started
bad with a botched punch, and got worse from
there. Thankfully Becky eventually caused
the DQ to end it after 5 minutes. I can’t
wait for the women’s title match at this
Friday’s Super Show-ah, right. We definitely
won’t be seeing the Women’s Right in that
Rey Mysterio then came out for a segment that
was advertised for last week and then dropped
without explanation-yeah, we’re not getting
a Lesnar cash-in, are we? – where he revealed
he’s going to do the right thing and relinquish
his US title to Samoa Joe because of his shoulder
injury, not because he unfairly beat Joe at
Money in the Bank. Joe then rather justifiably
attacked Rey for being a dick.
Braun Strowman beat Bobby Lashley in an arm
wrestling contest to hype their Super Showdown
match because… wrestling!
The awkward Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss character
inconsistent friendship storyline continued
next, where Bliss was in Nikki’s corner
for her match against Peyton Royce.
At least Alexa’s caffeine addiction is consistent,
when a stagehand gave her a coffee half way
through the match, for Peyton to kick it out
her hand and Billie Kay to push her in the
spilled liquid, ruining her white jeans. Because
what’s more shallow than building women’s
feuds around who’s friends with who? Build
them around stains on clothes. Nikki won off
the distraction.
Baron Corbin answered Seth’s calling out
of Lesnar next, leading to a brawl between
the two, where Corbin laid Rollins out after
Brock’s music caused a distraction.
Then out came Lesnar for the big selling point
of the show, why many viewers would’ve tuned
in, and stuck around through the first two
hours… to just see Brock beat up Rollins
with a chair and reveal he’s actually going
to cash in on Friday. Of course, it was a
rouse! You got us, WWE. Way to sell the Saudi
Arabia pay-per-view that everyone’s annoyed
about already.
Baiting and switching three weeks in a row
with Lesnar, and then using it to sell your
blood money pay-per-view is a very off-putting
carny tactic. There’s only so many times
you can cheat viewers with fake-out angles
before they lose any trust in you as a company.
But, in truth, that happened long before now,
so maybe shame on us. And why does Brock want
to wait until then instead of just winning
the title now? It’s not even consistent
with his character of wanting to work the
fewest dates possible. Don’t expect that
motivation to ever be explained, though, because
we still don’t know who took out Sami Zayn
at Money in the Bank.
They did a big stretcher angle for Seth, with
his real-life girlfriend Becky Lynch even
getting in the ambulance for ‘realism’
(inverted commas).
Thankfully this was followed up by possibly
Bray Wyatt’s best Firefly Fun House promo
yet – a super serious episode… about exercise!
Bray introduced a new puppet friend – Huskus
the Pig Boy, an amazing play on his first
fuller figure character Husky Harris, continuing
each puppet being an element of Bray’s damaged
psyche, whom a puppet Vince McMahon threatened
to fire for not being in shape. That was brilliant
enough as it was, but then Bray and his cast
of puppets launched into a Tim and Eric style
green screen music video of them all doing
the Muscle Man Dance work out. The key to
getting your character over, it seems, is
to pre-record all your stuff in advance so
McMahon can’t tinker with them.
Triple H and Randy Orton had their first non-video
package build for their Super Showdown match,
and based it around the size of Hunter’s
testicles. If only other roster members were
trusted to get over without scripted promos.
Ricochet then took on Cesaro for the third
time in the last few weeks in a very good
TV match, with their spots riffing off their
previous matches. Ricochet rolled up Cesaro
for the win, leading Cesaro to beat him up
afterwards, get a table from under the ring,
to find 24/7 champion R-Truth hiding on it.
This was pretty funny too, with the usual
undercard scramble chasing Truth out the arena
to follow. The better finish, however, would’ve
been for the lights to cut out and Undertaker
to win the belt.
Instead he came out to cut a promo on his
Super Showdown opponent Goldberg, which was
the usual Taker stuff of death and souls,
but no ‘rest in peace’ catchphrase, because
he’d spent too long walking to the ring,
and Raw had run out of time.
The third hour of this show was pretty good,
even if they did completely drop its ‘gritty’
theme. Unfortunately, overall, the Lesnar
storyline not making sense and cheating fans
one too many times made this a deeply frustrating
watch. This week’s Raw is the
worst possible score, Bore.
And now over to Luke with the news!
Great review there, Oli – glad your final
thoughts didn’t get cut short by the show
Following on from their excellent TakeOver:
XXV show – which you can watch mine and Laurie’s
review of on the WrestleRamble – NXT will
be getting ready for their next set of TV
tapings to build towards their next big show
TakeOver: Toronto. As well as advertising
the re-debut of Punishment Martinez – who
has been renamed to Damien Priest, we should
see more re-debuts on the show along with
some new names.
It’s being reported that Adrian Joude will
now go under the name Artuo Ruas, Jessie Elban
will now go by Jessie Kamea and Luke Menzies
will be now be called Ridge Holland. Which
is also the name of an excellent wallet.
The bigger changes however come for former
Impact Wrestling X Division Champion Trevor
Lee – who has changed his name to Cameron
Grimes, a reference to his hometown of Cameron
in North Carolina. And perhaps most upsettingly,
the excellent Eric Bugenhagen has had his
excellent name to something way less excellent
– Rik Bugez.
Someone looking to get in on the NXT action
is former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion
Sasha Banks – who hasn’t been seen on WWE
TV since she lost the titles at WrestleMania
to The IIconics. It was revealed late last
week that Tyler Breeze had moved from the
main roster back to NXT, and it looks like
Banks could be getting on that train.
NXT UK’s Piper Niven – otherwise known as
Viper – recently appeared at an ICW show to
challenge NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm
to a title match at the promotion’s Shug’s
Hoose Party 6. ICW themselves tweeted about
the announcement, asking if Storm will accept
the challenge – which Sasha Banks replied
to asking if she could accept instead.
It was reported over the weekend that Sasha
Banks had a meeting with Vince McMahon about
her future in the company, which reportedly
went well with Banks expected to return to
a WWE ring in the summer. Or could she stop
by NXT UK for a series of matches with Viper
and Toni Storm first?
Someone who could be moving from NXT to the
main roster is The King of Bros – and reader
of the WrestleTalk Magazine Matt Riddle, it
really is an excellent magazine. Riddle actually
teased himself for a Raw debut – or debutt
if you’re talking in Riddle-ese – but of
course that didn’t happen. However PWInsider
are reporting that Riddle is set to be part
of the huge 50-man Battle Royal at Super Showdown
this coming Friday when WWE heads to [country
According to PWInsider, Riddle’s name was
brought up as recently as this past weekend
for a spot in the Battle Royal, and it’s
been reported that The King of Bros could
be one of several NXT names to make the trip
over for Super Showdown to compete in the
match. This was to be expected, with NXT stars
like Roderick Strong, Babatunde, Dan Matha
and Tucker Knight entering the Greatest Royal
Rumble last year.
And now Dave Meltzer is reporting that WWE
have plans in mind to also bring up NXT Champion
Adam Cole and NXT Women’s Champion Shayna
Baszler to the main roster in the near future.
According to Meltzer on Wrestling Observer
Radio, WWE are in particular high on Baszler,
and she is “supposed to be geared up”
for a main roster call-up soon. When these
call-ups could happen it unknown, but the
speculation is they’ll be after Summerslam
which allow both Cole and Baszler to lose
their titles.
There’s also no word on wether Adam Cole’s
call-up will include the rest of the Undisputed
Era – or whether he will be called up as a
singles star.

  1. OLI: Will Brock Lesnar win the Universal Title at Super Showdown on Friday? I think so. Yay. Console yourself with Laurie and Simon's new ScreenStalker News on the Watch Dogs 3 leak! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdXbupfH7O0

  2. Who attacked Sami Zayn?

  3. That song by bray reminds me of a song I heard on adult swim years ago. It’s a black singing “I wanna meet that dad”

  5. Oli’s review was much more entertaining than the WWE Raw Show he was reviewing .

    It made me pull up my pants.

    And do the muscle man dance !

  6. That's because it was probably Brock Lesnar's idea as Jon Moxley said in his interview Brock Lesnar's suggests an idea the Derby we seem to listen but when any other wrestler has an idea they don't listen to them it looks like John Moxley was right about Brock Brock Lesnar is treated differently to every other wrestler in the company it looks like when Brock Lesnar says jump WWE say how high

  7. Would someone plz obliterate Shane ? He makes me want to throw up…biggest ass**le ever can't stand on his own .my sister could kick his lame sorry ass

  8. WWE already isn’t using half of their NXT call-ups from earlier this year, what the hell are they thinking calling up Adam Cole and Shayna Bazler?

  9. So the reason why Vince won't push Bray all these years and almost fired him because He thinks Brays is Fat? Damn is Bray doing a SHOOT in that segment? @ Oli davies!

  10. u expect charlotte to do well in matches. but that raw match was worse then a joke. it looked like charlotte had was sick of evans n didnt care. thus we are quitting wwe tv lol

  11. So you guys and gals are really surprised that Vinny Mac is working you guys with Brock lesner cashing in the mitb briefcase Haven't watched raw and SmackDown in a long time because Brock lesner thank God for AeW

  12. How will be a match between Shane and Brock for the universal championship and Shane winning the title and a match for the best on the world Shane vs cm punk for the title

  13. Did u c how the wwe allowed seth and lynch were seen together as a couple in the ambulance segment. Whole bunch of kayfabe crap…just like u 4 wankers of this channel

  14. WWE CHEAT Funs With Brock Lesnar Cash-ln! More NXT Call- Ups?! Wrestle Talk News June 2019 Bray watty like always carrys raw… and Orton going out of script was
    really nice.

  15. Vince would be an idiot to bring up cole. Alone, so much potential for the undisputed era, which means vince will definitely split them up smh.

  16. Everyone who complained about the plot lines in Game Of Thrones Season 8 haven't watched WWE. (+)

  17. What a waste of a good pie.. But Bray is teaching me I don't need pie in my life…but acid is just fine 😁🌸🍀🍀

  18. Let's change eric..just drop the e.. And pay no mind that he has a huge social media following with his real name.. Great way to get a new guy over..please Matt wear your retire Brock t shirt to the ring.😁

  19. If Lesnar wins another world title I WILL and I mean I DEFINATELY will NEVER WATCH ANOTHER WWE EPISODE OR PPV EVER AGAIN

  20. Wyatt was the highlight. 2Nd was Ricochet Vs Cesaro. Rest was meh

    I knew Brock wouldn't wrestle on a Cable TV Show rofl

    AvRAWge. Vince gonna Vince. Meh.

  21. Roman reigns is overrated and should only be a mid card wrestler he isn’t good enough for anything better

  22. And that is the proof that your notes "In awe, Cor, Averawge, Poor and BORE" should never have ben changed…
    And I totally agree with the BORE notation.

  23. Why do a long ass review of takeover do the same thing as raw and smackdown please I’m not watching a hour long video

  24. It was fucking Bray that strung Zayn up.
    I was so excited for Bray to show up in the mitb match and brock happened.
    I promise you it was Bray

  25. Hey Oli, it was actually an arm ENTERTAINMENT match since WWE dont like anything with wrestling or wrestlers in it 😂🤣

  26. Well that's me done with wwe cancelled wwe network and cancelled raw and smackdown series record watched it from 1995 just getting boring and predictable

  27. Would have been a Rawful rating but only for Bray Wyatt it was bumped up to Poor… Which isnt saying much

  28. Im sure brock is gonna win overseas just lije A.J. styles did…accolade wise they've done practically every rhing the same…only A.J. never step foot in an octagon. I hope they give Brock his belt back….I rather see him as champion than Seth walking around as if he beat Brock yet the Same Universe traded on Daniel for the same thing.

  29. what really kills me about the WWE is the feuds. There is no reason/story to most of them, with little build up, little confrontations between them, with a match a few weeks later, only to have another match again later on RAW or the next PPV. I miss the '80s and 90's where they had real feud storylines, that built up things and made you like, "oh man, is (Wrestler name) going to win and settle the score or not!" — and for the love of God, stop putting Shane in the main event of all the shows.. He's a good mid card attraction as a wrestler, but shouldn't be able to hold his own against top main event types and if he is involved make it a really special match, not an every week match.

  30. Did this remimd anyone of the infamous Triple H arm wrestling spot a few years ago that one commentator said was a biggest dick cintest?

  31. How was Rey being a dick? It was the referees fault he counted the pin which Rey at the time thought was legit. Also, aren't automatic rematches supposed to be a thing of the past? Rey just being told to give the title back to Joe is literally an automatic rematch without the match part. The then vacant title should've been competed for in a tournament to decide a champion. You know, like almost every other vacant title in the past.

  32. I think Bore is a bit harsh. I think it was better then last week.
    Sure the Brock MITB stuff was really idiotic and Shanes stuff also quite annoying but the 6 man tag, Bray and Truth, HHH vs Orton and Ricochet vs Cesaro was high enough for an avrawge to me.

  33. Will Brock win? Christ, I hope not. I can understand bringing him in for ShowDown, because the show is rapidly becoming little more than a steady series of dream bookings that should have happened years ago. So yeah, let them see Brock, and have it end in a DQ so Brock still Looks Strong.

  34. I actually liked this episode of raw. The beat down on Seth Rollins was intense, and felt more heated than their WrestleMania angle. This isn't the first time they've liked about Brock Lesnar, at least he showed up this time.

  35. i'm off WWE. the lesner lie is a bridge too far for me. if not for firefly, i'd leave it all behind. but i can follow bray w/o watching raw. we'll see how he's used once he's in the ring. i'd love to see him accompanied to the ring by his dr mercy – and i'd love it if they could get spivey to do it

  36. I love how you guys getting all bent out of shape over WWE having shows in Saudi Arabia. But never once said a word when Barack Obama murdered Americans with drone strikes. Either stop complaining or stop being hypocrites.

  37. The only hope the WWE has is for Vince to retire and let HHH retire, and put Shane back behind the scenes, only hope they have at all, because NXT has been gutted to many times and they still rebound, so please Vince retire and let HHH take over

  38. If they had so much trouble putting up with Brock then why do they keep bringing him back and giving him all the gold? #StupidWWE

  39. Who are the Raw tag team champions? I miss the late ‘80s and 1990s when Vince cared for and about tag team wrestling.

  40. With all do respect to your opinion…..but im really starting to see some hypocrisy and biasem in your videos ( again i respect your opinion ) but i mean this show had the undertaker appearing.. rey relinquishing his title..funny 24/7 title segments and what is in my opinion a great segment of brock beating the crap out of seth ….all of that with an amazing cesaro vs ricochet match and an awesome promo between triple h and randy and a PHONEMONAL firefly fun house episode made what is in my opinion the best raw this year so far
    Im not saying that you should agree with me or that you didn't see anything good at the show…..but seeing you talk about the raw ramp design and a false advertisement that was replaced with an awesome segment instead of all of that really dissapoints me
    Again i fully respect your opinion but maybe next time try and focus on the things that actually matter

  41. I want someone pick a fight with Brock like Drew McIntyre or Bray Wyatt when he is about to cash in and stop him by beating him with a chair. Anybody?

  42. God I hope they don’t call Cole up, cannot take the main roster ruining another one of my favourite NXT wrestlers 😂

  43. I will watch the super showdown I'm not someone who expects every country to be the same as us the USA. I also believe its fucking funny listening to ppl bitch and cry about wwe not doing what they want, its entertainment. But I guess since wo many of the younger ppl feel they are entitled to everything and they deserve everything to be gave to him I understand why. You dont like what wwe is doing its simple quit watching wwe you have other options

  44. Wow, Oli! Doubling down on your raw review score fail… Just like WWE doubling down on its talk-heavy format
