Endeavor, UFC’s parent company, is set to purchase WWE. We’ve now seen two RAWs and a Smackdown in the aftermath of the news. There was a lot to dislike and a lot that was encouraging.
Triple H has appeared on a couple of shows now and has revealed that the WWE Draft is coming back soon. We’ll speculate as to how this could be a benefit for his creative vision if he is indeed still the driver of content.
Plus, with Backlash in Puerto Rico on the horizon, we’ll analyze some of the feuds that we can look forward to from Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar, Iyo Sky vs. Bianca Belair and more.
The Main Event: What will the purchase of WWE mean for you?
We still don’t totally know how far the ramifications of WWE being purchased will go. But the immediate consequence is that Vince McMahon is back as a member of the company board and, at least to some extent, creative.
The Three Count:
Julian put over the WrestleMania Night 2 press conference.
Lindsey put over Vince McMahon on Last Week Tonight.
Hal put over Cody Rhodes’ Chicken promo.
