Photo Credit – WWE Despite WWE’s history being long and extremely complex, the core of the company has always had one thing in common, and that is that it has been owned by a McMahon. However over the past decade Vince McMahon has made it very clear that he is open to selling the promotion is the right offer ever came in, but rumors suggested WWE asking price was significantly higher than it’s worth, and there was belief among many that Vince McMahon had no real intention to sell, meaning no rumoured deal ever became more than a rumor. After…

Photo Credit – WWE In NXT, Sami Zayn was one of the most loved wrestlers of all time for the brand. When he won the NXT Title, the celebration was massive in the ring and ended with Kevin Owens turning heel and beating up Zayn, just after he won. This created such an incredible underdog babyface v monster heel story. Besides the two stories, him chasing the NXT title and finally winning it and his feud shortly there after with Kevin Owens, there was not much to say about the face run of Sami Zayn.

WWE didn’t do as good as you’d expect on Smackdown this week. This week just more average than usual. With a slow opening hour to a pretty good main event, this didn’t feel much like a go home show. GREAT – We open up Smackdown with Jey Uso introducing the WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns comes down to the ring and tells Jey they have to address two things, Jimmy Uso and Cesaro. Roman starts off by saying he likes Cesaro, that he thinks he’s one of the best wrestlers in the world. But he can’t beat Roman…
