Kevin Owens ‘rejected’ by WWE main name

Published

on

Although Kevin Owens did not participate in the opening of WWE Smackdown last week, it is undeniable that he is one of the biggest stars of the show. Bruce Prichard is the current director of WWE Smackdown, as well as WWE Monday Night Raw, and as such, there will always be creative differences between Prichard and talent. An example came quite recently, as former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens had been rumored for quite some time to be planning to make a jump from the famous pirate ship at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay during WWE WrestleMania 37. However, Owens’ match with Sami Zayn came and went without such a jump coming true. However, Owens had a great time at WrestleMania with the impressive YouTube celebrity, Logan Paul. Bruce Prichard recently leaked a “backstage tirade” from this WWE icon.

It seems now we finally have an answer as to why this jump never took place, as Fightful Select reports that “there were discussions between talent and creativity throughout the week, but the fact that the match was not without DQ turned out to be a great obstacle ”. This would make sense due to the fact that Owens’s match against Zayn was a standard one-on-one contest. Additionally, the weather is reported to have been the “last nail in the coffin” for the jump idea, as it was notoriously stormy over WrestleMania weekend, with suspicious conditions to say the least. It also didn’t help Kevin Owens that the ship in question was much larger than many might have anticipated.

Adam Pearce ‘removed’ from Smackdown

Published

on

Adam Pearce did not appear on WWE Smackdown, as the creative did not want him to get in the way of Teddy Long’s return for the old school episode. Teddy Long admonished Seth Rollins in a match against Cesaro, with Cesaro winning and getting a title shot against Roman Reigns at Backlash.

He also taunted Sami Zayn with a variety of backstage matches with Sonya Deville, referencing his love for “tag team” matches.

The recent issue of A&E Biography primarily focused on WWE Hall of Famer Randy Savage and Jerry Lawler went on to share a story about him.

Jerry Lawler comments on a WCW debut

Veteran WWE commentator Jerry Lawler had shared the story about Randy Savage making his WCW debut and how Vince McMahon came to find out.

PWinsider’s Mike Johnson clarified that the story Lawler shared was “completely wrong.” It seems Lawler misremembered Lex Luger’s jump to WCW in the first episode of Nitro.

According to what Lawler said, Vince McMahon was looking for Savage to go over the Raw format but it was not the case since he was not there and they told him to watch television.

Lawler then went on to describe Vince’s non-reaction to seeing Savage on television at WCW that night.

But, Nitro did not exist when Savage left the WWF in November 1994. McMahon, live on Raw said goodbye to Savage and thanked him for his contributions to the WWF. Stephanie McMahon breaks silence on Randy Savage

Mike Johnson pointed out that Macho Man didn’t debut for WCW until a December 1994 episode of WCW Saturday Night and that was recorded.

Therefore, it is obvious that the episode did not air in front of a WWF broadcast that same night.

There could be mistakes when recalling incidents that occurred decades ago. But it’s a shame the A&E production team didn’t review the facts and broadcast them unverified.

There were also some other graphical errors that were observed during the broadcast. Lex Luger was listed as Lex Lugar.
