Rumor: Sasha Banks turning heel in WWE? Shelton Benjamin WWE return update…

It’s rumour time! And remember, as we found out with the rumoured Survivor Series results I reported on last week, absolutely none of them turned out to be true. So take this with a bag of salt.

In CageSideSeats’ rumour round-up section, they’re saying there might be plans for Sasha Banks to turn heel within the next few months.

Despite arguably getting the more established stars in the draft – with Charlotte, Sasha Banks, and, later on, Bayley – Raw’s women’s division somehow feels much less developed than all the various feuds happening on Smackdown Live, preferring to focus on just one feud. Charlotte vs Banks. Which feels like the new Baron Corbin vs Dolph Ziggler.

It’ll never end.

With Charlotte seeming to be entering a feud with Bayley, the only other people Banks could enter a feud with are Nia Jax, Dana Brooke or the redebuting Emmalina – who are all,

WWE’s Undertaker Returns to ‘SmackDown’ – With a Threat (Video)
Kill the lights and bash the gong — the Undertaker is back! The Dead Man returned to WWE last night on the 900th episode of USA Network’s “SmackDown” — and he came with a threat. But first, he commended his conquered “WrestleMania 32” opponent Shane McMahon as, “the man who has no fear.” That’s pretty high praise, considering the source.

The Undertaker to Return on WWE’s ‘SmackDown Live,’ Arena Reveals
Kill the lights and strike the bells — the Undertaker is returning to the WWE. At least, that’s according to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., which tweeted out the news on Wednesday. The Dead Man will apparently come back on November 15, which marks the 900th episode of WWE’s USA Network series, “SmackDown Live” (formerly just “SmackDown”). That’s a mere five days before pay-per-view “Survivor Series,” one of the pro wrestling promotion’s Big 4 annual events.

Big Nxt Call-Up! Shane McMahon calls out Vince! – WWE Raw 03/07/16 Review…In About 4 Minutes

In this week’s episode of WrestleTalk’s WWE Monday Night Raw …in about 4 minutes, a massive call-up from Nxt, Shane McMahon calls out Vince, a fantastic tag team titles match with a (rather obvious) betrayal, Bray Wyatt is good again and more…

What did you think of this week’s Raw? Let us know in the comments down below.

Shane O’Back (2)

The show opened on Shane McMahon calling Vince an egomaniacal, miserable old bastard. Free Titus!

Then Undertaker’s massive dong hits. The Chicago crowd go wild – it’s an unannounced appearance by…oh, it’s Vince. Good trolling.

The old bastard smashes a photo of him and Shane from happier times. It’s probably on Facebook, but that’s beside the point. It’s symbolic – not just of Vince disowning his son in storyline, but also how this match is really Shane

8 Things We Learned From Ryback On Talk Is Jericho

WWE.com

Just a short while ago Ryback was looking like yet another can’t-miss prospect that WWE totally found a way to miss on. After exploding out of the gate with squash matches over local jobbers and being inserted into the main event rather quickly, his push was neutered and he was shunted back down the card, eventually becoming mired in a tag team with Curtis Axel. His run as a Paul Heyman guy was a failure and before long an injury put the former Skip Sheffield out of action for months.

When Ryback made his triumphant return to WWE the fans were quick to jump back on his bandwagon, and he was immediately made into a featured player in the Survivor Series main event storyline. The hunger for new stars has the fans accepting of The Big Guy and the “Goldberg” chants have almost completely been replaced by

Ryback Shares Hospital Video And Discusses Coming Back Strong To WWE

WWE.com

Ryback is currently on the shelf. We knew he was taking time off a few days ago, but we didn’t know what was wrong. Thanks to a video that he shot from a hospital bed with him in cap & gown, we found out that he had surgery. According to Ryback, he had surgery to repair strained groin injuries as well as two sports hernias. He mentioned that he’s been dealing with these injuries for the past seven months.

His video is unique because his current gimmick as “The Big Guy” likes to embellish things. We’ve documented about his Twitter antics in the past where he likes to troll fans with silly comments only to delete them soon after.

In this video, Ryback claims he’s a four time WWE Champion (he’s actually never been WWE Champion), he explains his love for mothers, talks about

The Miz’s Role At WWE WrestleMania 28 Revealed?

Speculation on The Miz’s involvement at WWE WrestleMania 28 is growing and there is now rumours from within the WWE that he may get involved in The Rock vs. John Cena main event in some capacity.

Even before last night’s Raw, reports were that The Miz, who successfully retained the WWE title against John Cena in the main event of last year’s show, would somehow have a huge storyline for this year’s event this late in the game.

Rumours are that the WWE’s recent losing streak storyline is not to punish The Miz but to build-up a huge angle they are planning for him post-WrestleMania.

On last night’s Raw, The Miz lost his opportunity to join Team Lauriniatis when he was defeated by Cm Punk.

Personally, I’m not sure how much I buy the report as I’m certain WWE won’t do anything

The Miz Blamed By WWE For Poor Survivor Series PPV Buys

The Miz’s current losing streak is mainly down to the fact WWE’s top officials are blaming him as the fall guy for the poor WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view buy-rate back in November. The main event of the show was The Rock & John Cena vs. The Miz & R-Truth.

The Miz has not won a televised singles match since the December 5th edition of Raw and his stock has been lowered in storylines in recent weeks. At one point The Miz was to get a big push and come back into the WWE Title picture around the WWE Royal Rumble time (there was talk of The Miz vs. Cm Punk for the title, but the slot eventually went to Dolph Ziggler) but the Survivor Series numbers killed any chances of that.

November’s Survivor Series was estimated to have garnered 260,000 buys worldwide, with 160,000 coming from the Us. Those numbers were

Awesome Truth Were Set To Win WWE Tag Team Titles Before Suspensions

Before R-Truth’s and Evan Bourne’s recent respective 30 day suspensions for both violating the WWE Wellness policy, the plan was for The Miz and R-Truth to win the WWE Tag Team Titles from Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston after the Survivor Series PPV.

The plan has now obviously changed and it’s now expected that The Miz will head back into the frame for the WWE Title almost imminently. As I mentioned yesterday, there’s a huge expectation that he will face John Cena in a number 1 contendership match at the TLC PPV and then go on to face Cm Punk at the Royal Rumble. Though, with John Cena not needing to be in the Royal Rumble (as he already has his Wrestlemania match booked) don’t be surprised if it becomes a Miz vs. Punk vs. Cena three-way. Though plans in the WWE change all the time.

As far as Kingston goes,

Zack Ryder Has Backstage Heat With WWE Over Dying His Hair Blonde

PWInsider reports that Zack Ryder has some heat with people in the WWE because he dyed his hair blonde without permission, apparently upsetting officials because his high-selling merchandise shows him with dark hair.

This could explain as to why Ryder lost the U.S. Title shot against Dolph Ziggler at the Survivor Series and was replaced by a departing John Morrison and also why he was jobbed out within seconds on Raw against Alberto Del Rio.

Hopefully this won’t stop plans to give Ryder the U.S. Title before the end of the year, probably in a match with Dolph Ziggler at the TLC PPV. Ryder is so over right now a U.S. title run seems to be demanded and Ziggler needs to start being elevated upwards to main event status.

A good indicator that Ryder’s push won’t be halted and his punishment has only lasted

John Cena Says The Rock Will Wrestle Tonight – “Raw Gets Rocked”

The build up for Wrestlemania 28 truly steps up another gear as tonight’s WWE Raw SuperShow from Boston is a 3-hour special dubbed “Raw Gets Rocked” showcasing the return of The Rock.

To hype the event, John Cena appeared on the Toucher & Rich morning radio show on Boston’s 98.5 station and said not only would The Rock be appearing tonight but he would also be wrestling in his first match, although one that won’t be televised.

Cena said it will be The Rock & him teaming up with Zack Ryder to take on World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry, The Miz & R-Truth in a dark match main event. This would officially be The Rock’s first match back in the WWE since Wrestlemania Xx some eight and a half years ago in 2004.

The ironic point in all this is that the WWE have been building towards the Rock and Cena tag

WWE Tag Champion Evan Bourne Suspended For 30 Days

Current WWE Tag Team Champion Evan Bourne has been suspended for 30 days effective immediately for a first violation of the WWE’s Talent Wellness Program. He was called to a meeting with WWE officials on Monday night at the Raw SuperShow in Atlanta, Georgia after failing a Substance Abuse and Drug Testing Policy violation which corporate.wee.com states “prohibits the use of drugs by talent for other than a legitimate medical purpose pursuant to a valid prescription from a licensed and treating physician.”

Although it’s unknown whether it’s related to this case, there’s a thought that the flurry of recent WWE suspensions of the Talent Wellness Program is because of a cracking down on synthetic cannabis which was only added to the list of banned substances in June. Darren Young and Heath Slater were also suspended in the last month.

What was particularly surprising was that

WWE Re-sign Kevin Nash & He Will Appear On Raw From Liverpool Next Week

As announced during Monday Night Raw and on the WWE.com website, Kevin Nash has been re-signed to a WWE contract. The Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis re-signed Nash at the request of COO Triple H and Nash will appear on Raw next week, which comes from Liverpool, UK.

So it’s looking almost set in stone that Triple H vs Kevin Nash will be a match soon to be added to the WWE Survivor Series PPV at the end of the month in Madison Square Garden.

Speaking of which, on Raw last night The Rock accepted John Cena’s invitation to team with him in a tag match at the Survivor Series against The Miz and R-Truth. He cut an extremely long promo via tape delayed satellite that felt like it went on forever but The Rock made it work and

The Rock Returns To WWE Monday Night Raw Nov 14th in Boston

WWE is advertising via a press release that The Rock will be returning for the three hour Monday Night Raw Show in Boston on November 14th at the Td Garden. The show is just one week before the Survivor Series PPV at Madison Square Garden where The Rock has already been officially announced as making his in-ring return as part of a traditional 5 on 5 elimination match where he will team with John Cena.

John Cena hails from Boston and the Raw show will house their first encounter since facing off the day after Wrestlemania and if The Rock ends up more over than Cena in his hometown it will make for some intriguing television. Their match at the Survivor Series will be their first before they headline Wrestlemania 28 in Miami, Florida next year.

Other combatants expected in the Survivor Series match are expected to line up something like this;
