E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness Recap w/ Kevin Owens – Hell in A Cell Analysis, Working with Shane McMahon, Rocky Road to WWE, More!

0

Edge & Christian open today’s show speaking about last Sunday’s Hell in A Cell PPV.

They both agree that the opening bout between The Usos and The New Day was a terrific match and they credit the originality of a lot of the spots in this match. Edge points out that it felt as if The New Day were trapped in the Usos’ penitentiary at times, and it was also great to see Big E go into ‘Terminator’ mode in this match.

Christian thought the WWE Title match between Jinder Mahal and Nakamura was put in a tough spot, but he also points out that a World Title match should be able to live up to expectations whenever it’s placed on a card. Edge points out that Nakamura hasn’t really shown up yet on the main roster and he’s not sure why. He also points out that Jinder Mahal needs to be able to get to another gear during big PPV matches and he hasn’t shown the ability to do that yet.

Edge & Christian both agree that the main event between Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon delivered as suspected, helped a lot by a fantastic build during this entire storyline. Edge does point out that whenever Shane McMahon is in a match like this people know he’s going to jump off of something, so they’re often sitting on their hands waiting for it to happen. Nonetheless, in this case he thought the fans were with the match throughout.

Speculation on Carmella Cashing In The MITB Contract Soon

0

There is a lot of speculation that Carmella is going to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship sooner or later as the company is building towards her as the champion.

Dave Meltzer indicated in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that her loss on television recently is an indication of just that.

Meltzer wrote, “Lynch beat Carmella in 2:57 with the disarmer. What’s so cool about WWE booking is that every Carmella loss means that she’s one step closer to cashing in and winning the title.”

Typically when a Money in the Bank contract holder loses a series of matches, WWE books them to cash in shortly after.

Jinder Mahal Injured?

It’s being reported that WWE World Champion Jinder Mahal is working through a shoulder injury over the past several weeks. He’s been taped up with kinesiology tape during house shows, but WWE doesn’t want him appearing on television that way. Good way to protect the champ, huh?

Also, it’s been revealed that Mahal will be defending his title against Kevin Owens during December’s India tour.

Jeff Hardy Update

As we’ve been reporting over the past weeks, Jeff Hardy has recently undergone two separate surgeries to repair a shoulder injury. Both surgeries were a success, but it’s still believed that Hardy will be out of action until after WrestleMania 34.

Finn Bálor On Bray Wyatt

During a recent podcast appearance, Finn Bálor spoke about his seemingly never-ending feud with Bray Wyatt.

I’m loving it. I’m seeing it as a challenge; it’s something new, it’s something fresh. I’ve been wrestling for almost 18 years now. I’ve done grappler versus striker, striker versus wrestler, high-flyer versus mat technician, I’ve done every style of match that you could possibly think of. And to be put in this situation, with probably one of the most interesting characters of our time, and being given to work with this opportunity in this program and adapt to the situation and learn his character and figure out how he works… it’s been a challenge for me. You can only get better by challenging yourself. I don’t know how fans are reacting to it, I don’t know how critics are reacting to it, but for me, I’m welcoming the challenge and I’m enjoying it.

I think the biggest challenge is getting the opportunity to talk more than I had previously been given the opportunity to do. I’ll be honest, I’m not someone who likes to go out there and talk, I like to have fun, but I kind of have to adapt to this storyline. There’s a lot more talking involved and it’s something I know that as a performer I have to improve on my talking skills… It’s a new challenge. It’s something that keeps me pushing myself and I feel like I’m growing and developing another skill set.

Stephanie McMahon Indicates that Fans Can Influence Changes to WrestleMania

0

While speaking at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, Stephanie McMahon talked about fans and how they can influence the matches that are booked for upcoming WrestleMania events.

“Our audience tells us what they love, what they don’t like and worse, what they don’t care about. And you have to be listening, and in WWE, yes, we do, we pivot on the fly. It’s an advantage that we’re live. We do set our storylines out a year in advance, WrestleMania being our Super Bowl and then we program backwards, but things happen. The audience might not be invested in a character that we think they will be invested in for whatever reason. There could be an injury that happens, because we really are an incredible athletic event as well. Anything can happen, so that ability to pivot and twist is really important.”

Stephanie also explained how fans can influence NXT Superstars as well.

“And when you think about NXT, for example, our audience is actually determining who makes it to the next level, who goes to that main roster,” McMahon said. “And they know it, they know that they are a part of that person’s success, so they are that much more invested in it. And again, I just think that engagement is really important.”

Speculation on The Fashion Police Attackers

0

It was being speculated for several months that Luke Harper and Erick Rowan would be revealed as the attackers of the Fashion Police and that could still be the case. The ‘2B’ that Fandango and Tyler Breeze have been struggling with over could turn out to be the Bludgeon Brothers.

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes if they were still the planned mystery team, then it wouldn’t have made sense for WWE to debut a repackaged Harper and Rowan on SmackDown if they were still a planned surprise.
