Naomi (Trinity Fatu) was forced to relinquish the SmackDown Women’s Championship this Tuesday on WWE Smackdown Live episode after suffering an injury while winning the title from ”Five Feet of Fury” Alexa Bliss at the February 12th SD Live-Exclusive WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 pay-per-view.

Bliss became a two-time Smackdown Women’s Champion after defeating ”Straight Fire” Becky Lynch for the vacant title this week in the opening bout of the night immediately after Naomi relinquished her title.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the injury that Naomi sustained was to her left knee and it reportedly happened while performing her finishing maneuver ”The Split-Legged Moonsault” for her victory at #WWEChamber PPV in Phoenix, AZ over Alexa Bliss. It was believed that Naomi would be able to return to action this week but the injury is more serious than expected. It was described to The WON as similar to the injury that ”The Architect” Seth Rollins recently suffered on Monday Night RAW.

Naomi posted the following update on Instagram recently, noting that she has already started rehabbing her knee:-

 

No word yet on if Naomi will be back in time for WrestleMania 33 in her hometown in Orlando, FL but she’s not expected to go through a long recovery. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that she could be out of action for 2 months or so.

Naomi has been replaced by NXT Women’s Champion ”The Empress of Tomorrow” Asuka on WWE’s forthcoming live event at Madison Square Garden on March 12th, according to the venue’s official website.

WWE News: The Rock’s message for WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens

0
The Rock shows Appreciation for Kevin Owens' Struggles and Achievements!

 

”The Great One” The Rock was present at this week’s Monday Night RAW to shoot a sequence for his production company, Seven Bucks Production’s upcoming film ‘Fighting With My Family’. Kevin Owens took this opportunity to greet The People’s Champion backstage.

In an Instagram post, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson shared a story about how he had noticed ”Mr Wrestling” Kevin Owens (fka Kevin Steen) as an independent pro wrestler on YouTube when he was training with Curt Hawkins and Curtis Axel for his in-ring return in 2012.

Appreciate The Champ himself, Kevin Owens stopping by "The People's Hood" to say hello. People's Hood is the nickname for my dressing rooms. We had a good laugh about the story of when I was training for my WWE comeback and title run (2012) I was training with Kurt Hawkins and Joe Hennig. After our workout, me and Kurt were chopping it up about great independent wrestlers. I said "Dude I just saw this guy last night on YouTube named Kill Steen or something like that. He's amazing." Kurt said, "That's my good friend Kevin Owens". I said "We'll tell your friend he's bad ass and I hope WWE signs him." Now 5yrs later and relentless hard work, he's WWE Universal Champion. I like when good things happen to good hard working people. He's an asshole though for growing a better beard than I can. #RAW #StaplesCenter #PeoplesHood #UniversalChamp #KevinOwens #FightingWithMyFamily

Kevin Owens wrestled in the independent circuit under the name Kevin Steen before signing with WWE and appearing on WWE TV on the NXT brand. He made his debut on WWE TV on the NXT TakeOver: R-Evolution Specials Event in the opening match of the night. He wrestled for indy promotions before joining WWE with the likes of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), Ring Of Honor Wrestling (ROH) and Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW).

After he signed with WWE, he was asked about the perception that he doesn’t fit the WWE mold, to which he responded:

“I actually didn’t, and that might be hard to believe for a lot of people. I’ve encountered a lot of people in my career that didn’t think I’d ever get to WWE, but I’m actually really proud to be an exception, which is what I’ve been pretty much my entire career, everywhere I’ve went. I’ve never been the norm and I take great pride in that, but I never doubted that I would get here eventually.”

As mentioned above, The Rock was on RAW to shoot a scene of the upcoming movie based on Paige’s life, ‘Fighting With My Family’. The Rock and his crew recreated Paige’s debut when she won the WWE Divas Championship against AJ Lee on her first night on WWE RAW.

Rock even created waves by calling CM Punk on his phone after the fans at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA chanted for the former WWE Superstar.

WWE took a little time to decide the next obvious thing, & it was announced on Talking Smack that there is going to be a #1 contender’s match on Smackdown Live next week between Luke Harper & AJ Styles. This could come as another way by Smackdown’s creative team to one-up against RAW by keeping their audience engaged for every upcoming week.

Also on #SDLive the seeds were sown for John Cena & Nikki Bella vs The Miz & Maryse at Wrestlemania 33 when Natalya forced Nikki into Maryse accidentally & Maryse afterwards attacked Nikki with a pipe and hit Nikki with it several times before being dragged off by The Miz—allowing Natalya to record the pinfall.

The Miz also after being eliminated by John Cena came back from the crowd to eliminate the 16 time world champ providing fuel to fire & NEXT WEEK on SDLive we have the return of Miz TV & the special guest is none other than John Cena.

The News WWE Women’s Champion was crowned after Naomi had to surrender her title due to an injury.

Alexa bliss defeated Becky Lynch to regain the gold.

Also the feud between Dean Ambrose (IC Champion) & Baron Corbin was heated up when Dean Ambrose eliminated Baron Corbin & Corbin just like Elimination Chamber got the better of Dean after being eliminated & destroyed him.

WWE News: The Rock Calls CM Punk In The Ring After RAW Goes Off Air (Video)

1

 

After Raw went off the air, The Rock made his way down to the ring as teased by ”The Great One” himself on Instagram earlier in the day.

Dwayne ”The Rock” Johnson hasn’t appeared in a WWE ring since WWE WrestleMania 32 in Dallas, TX where he defeated Eric Rowan in six seconds in an impromptu bout.

After TV cameras stopped rolling and the chaos was cleared from ringside, The Rock made his way down to the squared circle inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.

Here are the twitter reactions in a chronological order:-

The People’s Champion played to the crowd for a short while as a production crew was setting up to film scenes for the upcoming movie “Fighting With My Family” which resonates around WWE Superstar Paige and her family.

The crowd started chanting CM Punk’s name, to which The Rock replied, “He’s not in this movie.”

He then shockingly, proceeded to call the Superstar Phil Brooks better known as CM Punk, whilst standing in the middle of a WWE Ring.

Tonight, The Rock and his Seven Bucks Films production studio were at Staples Center in Los Angeles in order to film one of the more important scenes from the film: Paige winning the WWE Divas’ Championship from AJ Lee.

Florence Pugh is portraying Paige in the film, with Tessa Blanchard as her stunt double. Thea Trinidad is portraying AJ Lee. Apparently, the “match” that they were filming was not very well received.

And then they apparently brought the stunt double for Florence Pugh in to re-film some aspects of the bout.

Fortunately, CM Punk did chime in and let Twitter know why he was unable or didn’t answer The Rock’s phone call:-

– Singles Match for the WWE Universal Championship:
”Mr Wrestling” Kevin Owens (c) vs. ”The Icon” Bill Goldberg

Many speculate that his knee buckled when Joe took him down for the Coquina Clutch.

The Zayn vs. Joe, Raw Tag Title bout and Women’s Title match haven’t been officially announced, but they seem to be an obvious addition to the Fastlane Card after what transpired this past week on WWE RAW. Expect for at least one more match to be added to the card, along with another one for the kick-off show.
