After the latest chaotic ending of latest episode of WWE Raw where Drew McIntyre claimed his second WWE Champion against Randy Orton. Following that there are some rumors building up before Survivor Series 2020. Let us check out some of WWE Rumors for this week.
5) The Original Plans For Roman Reigns’ Title Run
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE originally planned for Roman Reigns to have a short run with the Universal Championship. The company has since changed their mind.
Here is what Meltzer said:
“Roman Reigns with a long title run was not the idea, believe it or not. Even though it seems so obvious, it was not the idea. I don’t know who the guy who was supposed to be the champion was supposed to be because they basically devalued everybody else.”
If true, we are glad that they changed their mind. Roman is currently killing it and we are happy to see him get a long reign with the belt.
4) Betting Odds For Survivor Series
Below are the current betting odds for Survivor Series according to Wrestlezone. We have bolded the current betting favorite to win each match:
— Roman Reigns -200 (1/2) vs Drew McIntyre +150 (3/2)
— Sasha Banks -160 (5/8) vs Asuka +120 (6/5)
— The New Day -120 (5/6) vs The Street Profits -120 (5/6)
— Bobby Lashley -325 (4/13) vs Sami Zayn +220 (11/5)
— Men’s Elimination Match: Team Raw -180 (5/9) vs Team Smackdown +140 (7/5)
— Women’s Elimination Match: Team Raw +140 (7/5) vs Team Smackdown -180 (5/9)
No major surprises here. We would be shocked if Roman vs Drew has a clean finish, without protecting either of them.
3) Some WWE Stars Are Privately Supporting Zelina Vega
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, there have been several WWE Superstars who have privately reached out to Zelina Vega to offer their support. This comes after she was recently fired by WWE.
Here is what Meltzer said:
“In WWE, the one thing is that ever since the thing happened with Thea on Friday, with the exception of Paige, has anyone come to her defense publicly? I know privately people have backed her and they have to me but no one has done it publicly and I never got the impression that anyone would so she is kind of off on her island or whatever. SAG-AFTRA is a real power group but the wrestlers would have join and they would want it and that makes that one tough.”
We are sure that there are plenty of Superstars who are pushing for Unionization and are happy to see Zelina fight back against WWE. While saying that, we doubt that any of them would want to come out publicly because it would lead to them losing their jobs.
2) Upcoming Feud For Drew McIntyre
According to a rumor from Cageside Seats, a feud between Drew McIntyre and Sheamus is likely coming soon on RAW.
Here is what the site wrote:
The speculation, obvious as it may be, is that everything we’ve seen with Sheamus and Drew McIntyre recently is a slow build to the two feuding. That could happen very soon.
This would make sense with Sheamus turning back heel. We kind of want WWE to keep Sheamus as a babyface though and see how it goes for a while.
1) Mixed Tag Team Match Happening At Wrestlemania 37?
We noted in a previous WWE rumor roundup that the company was considering doing Edge vs The Fiend at Wrestlemania 37. We have some more details to pass your way about this.
According to @Wrestlevotes, WWE has pitched the idea of doing a mixed tag team match involving The Fiend and Alexa Bliss at Wrestlemania 37.
The original idea pitched was for The Fiend and Alexa to face off against Edge and Beth Phoenix. Here is what the account Tweeted:
The Fiend & Alexa teaming up at Wrestlemania 37 could be a lot of fun and could be a great way to use both of them on the card. We think that it would be fun to see them face off against Edge and Beth and we would be down to see it.
