Roman Reigns' loss to Finn Balor during last week's episode of WWE Raw was the final act in the former champion's run as the show's top babyface.  Instead, Reigns, who has been fighting for the company's top title for more than a year, had to find a new path to redemption.   As WWE fans found out on Monday night: when one door closes, another opens.  Instead of using Raw's main event scene to build Reigns back up, or turning The Big Dog into a heel, WWE made its best move yet in the short career of Reigns: It moved him into the ...

Lilian Garcia Comments on Her Absence from WWE Programming

Posted by Joseph Zucker On August - 1 - 2016
Lilian Garcia announced Monday she is taking a break from WWE to be closer to her father, who is battling cancer. In a post on Instagram, the ring announcer wrote maintaining WWE's grueling travel schedule would be unrealistic, as she hopes to spend as much time with her dad as possible: I’ve been getting a lot of tweets and messages asking where I have been and if I’m coming back to WWE, so I wanted to let you know what has been going on and why I have been silent. I've been through so many emotions lately that they literally have kept ...

WWE Raw: Live Results, Reaction and Analysis for August 1

Posted by The Doctor Chris Mueller On August - 1 - 2016
Welcome to Bleacher Report's live coverage of the August 1 episode of Raw. According to WWE.com, Brock Lesnar will return to Raw this week. It will be the first time we have seen The Beast since before his UFC 200 win and the controversy that followed. Even though Randy Orton is technically a member of the SmackDown roster, it wouldn't be surprising to see The Viper make an appearance to deliver an RKO. WWE's biggest priority is building the SummerSlam card. It's going to be hard for management to outperform last week's show, but hopefully it comes close. What will Lesnar have to say about facing Randy ...

Posted by Alfred Konuwa On August - 1 - 2016
Rarely does change come about quietly, especially in pro wrestling. In a social media generation where statements and reactions exist in a rapid-fire format, today's culture is more opinionated than ever before. In a matter of days, both Ric Flair and Road Warrior Animal made headlines for their apparent criticisms of Finn Balor and Sasha Banks, respectively (see quotes below). The resulting nerd rage backlash demonstrates the generation gap WWE has created as it looks to build new stars. After launching two brand-exclusive shows, while still introducing a fresh crop of talent dubbed The New Era, WWE is in a transitional period as it seeks to differentiate itself from eras ...

WWE's brand split guarantees more opportunities for the stars drafted to Raw, the company's flagship show, to shine.

WWE Superstar Rankings Ahead of August 1 Raw

Posted by The Doctor Chris Mueller On August - 1 - 2016
The past week was a time of change in WWE. Raw and SmackDown put on their first episodes following the draft, a new championship was introduced and a few title matches were made for SummerSlam. Raw won the week thanks to an outstanding Women's Championship match between Sasha Banks and Charlotte and the main-roster debut of Finn Balor. However, SmackDown had its high points, with Apollo Crews winning a Battle Royal and Dolph Ziggler becoming the No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship. WWE still has several weeks to fill up the SummerSlam card, and with a few main events already set, management ...
