October was a big month for WWE, but there will be many more matches to come. The standings aren’t that hot yet and it won’t be long before the Road to WrestleMania starts rolling.
The company has rightly been accused of being a little old this year. They still struggle to create new stars and employ part-timers like John Cena, Brock Lesnar and Goldberg. October’s WWE Draft shook up the Raw and SmackDown rosters.
WWE lacks originality at times and needs to stop. It was featured on the October 22 edition of SmackDown. Brock Lesnar just lost a Universal Title fight to champion Roman Reigns. However, he is not seen week after week and never has a match on Raw or Smackdown.
What is Reigns doing in the Meantime?
Tell him to attack an authority and get suspended indefinitely. We’ve seen him for WWE and we know he’ll be back later. The loss of the crown jewel led to an ongoing storyline and Lesnar’s return. But what is Reigns doing in the meantime?
Will The Rock Return?
Drew McIntyre is now on Smackdown and is a potential title contender, although he is not winning the title. Rulers need only be busy until one of two things happens. WWE’s dream match is Roman Reigns vs The Rock, which he belongs to. It fits perfectly with the plot of Head of the Table, but will The Rock return?
If you do, it’s a controversy that will make national headlines. However, if that’s not possible, get ready for Reigns v Lesnar at WrestleMania. Nice showdown, but we’ve seen it all before.
Bookmakers offer odds for professional wrestling. This may surprise you because the results are predetermined. Gambling is now legal in Illinois after years of absence. According to Illinoisgambler.com, bookmakers such as DraftKings, FanDevil and PointsBet offer odds on all types of top sports events in USA.
Right now it’s hard to see where the WWE title will go in the future. Big E recently won the title and will probably hold it for a while. Possible candidates after the WWE draft include Edge, Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens. There seems to be no controversy which will see the ratings explode in the coming months.
Behind the Scenes
King Xavier Woods is likely to have a feud with his New Day partner Kofi Kingston. They had been together for a while and there could have been a fight. In the women’s division, Becky Lynch vs. Rhea Ripley will be a good matchup. Charlotte Flair x Sasha Banks would also be fun. The Flair vs. Lynch match needs to be resolved somehow, especially with real heat behind the scenes.
