AJ Styles & Kevin Owens In Back Of Wrestlemania Poster! WWE Fastlane Changes! | WrestleTalk News

December 20, 2019

Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News! I’m Oli Davis, and I’ll be replying to
as many comments as I can in the first 15 minutes of these episodes going live. So enable notifications on your YouTube app
to get this videos first. THE ULTIMATE THRILL-RIDE Wrestlemania 33 is
just several weeks away now, so WWE are beginning to flood the Orlando area with advertisements
for the event. The latest – in the time-honoured American
tradition of giant roadside attractions, like the world’s largest Wicker Basket replica,
or the world’s largest cherry on a spoon – is the world’s largest WWE Championship
belt. Just make sure Vince McMahon doesn’t see
that picture. He’ll think Shinsuke Nakamura’s too small
for the main roster. And from the same company that brought you
the Royal Rumble 2017 poster, with then-WWE Champion AJ Styles in the back row, and part-timers
Undertaker, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar leading the charge, WWE has done it again with their
new advertisement for THE ULTIMATE THRILL-RIDE WRESTLEMANIA 33. Goldberg, Undertaker and Brock Lesnar are
at the front again, with Roman Reigns, John Cena, Triple H and Shane McMahon up next. You have to go all the way back to find Styles
and Kevin Owens – the two men who carried their respective brands since last year’s
split. AJ had been openly critical about his Royal
Rumble poster placement earlier this year. WWE Champion Bray Wyatt also finds himself
tucked into a corner. At least front-and-centre Goldberg is the
Universal Champion. There’s also no cruiserweights in the line-up,
nor Big Show or Shaq – a long-reported match that might now not be happening. There’s also no Finn Balor or Samoa Joe,
neither of whom have anything planned for WWE’s biggest show of the year so far. But as The Face That Gets Put In The Back
Of The Place told Lillian Garcia on her show Making Their Way To The Ring, it’s not about
what wrestlers ‘deserve’ – as the popular ‘You Deserve It’ chant goes – it’s about
what they ‘earn’. “I hate when people say, ‘you deserve
it’…I want them to say ‘you earned it.’ Sometimes when they chant ‘you deserve it’,
like, no I don’t, because there’s other guys who’ve fought just as hard to get to
this point.” ‘You earn it’. I agree, AJ. But come back to me when you’ve got something
with four syllables in to replace it. Sunday’s WWE Fastlane was the night the
streaks ended. Nia Jax lost to Sasha Banks clean. Charlotte’s undefeated pay-per-view run
is now over. And after a tremendous build of his monster
character, Braun Strowman succumbed to Roman Reigns’ push. According to Wrestling News World – so take
this with a pinch of salt – the Roman vs Braun match finish was changed at 8.40 EST – 40
minutes into the pay-per-view already being on-air. The site doesn’t say who the original winner
was meant to be, but they do report that initial plans didn’t have Reigns beating Strowman
clean. Apparently The Undertaker’s return “was
pushed from Fastlane to Raw” the next night, so the Deadman was presumably involved in
the original Roman vs Braun finish, setting up his ULTIMATE THRILL RIDE WRESTLEMANIA 33
MATCH against the Big Dog. Undertaker’s appearance being moved from
Fastlane to Raw is also reportedly why Finn Balor didn’t make his WWE return on Monday,
as “they did not want both returns on the same night.” And those weren’t the only last-minute changes
at Fastlane. Wrestling News World are also reporting that
both Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax and Charlotte vs Bayley were also changed, with the original
plan having Sasha lose to Nia earlier in the night, and then for Banks turn on Bayley,
costing her the Women’s Championship. This corroborates Bryan Alvarez reporting
that initially Nia was meant to go over Banks. All those last-minute changes might be responsible
for a screwed up match finish at WWE Fastlane. And Roman’s crowd reaction be damned – WWE
are going to edit out the negative chants on YouTube regardless. Find out more on all that by clicking the
videos to the left, and press subscribe. I’ve been Oli Davis, and that was wrestling.

    No one important cares about Cruiserweights, and roman is in the center of the poster, not the front, but the front is at the bottom.

    You notice roman before anyone else…

    …well, except John Cena, but John Cena would be the first noticed even if he is 10 pixels because of his eye catching outfits.

    Fucker would be a NES character for a homosexual game, or children's breakfast cereal.

    WWE should edit out the chants on Youtube. It's about time the audience realizes that the show is not about them, it's about the wrestlers and the storylines that WWE is making. If the audience wants a part in the show, let them go to development, then NXT and get to the main roster. Otherwise, play along and try to enjoy it, or stop going.

    Oh and anyone who ever chants CM Punk again should have their balls cut off. With a chainsaw. Idiots.

  • Reply Ashley Clarke March 9, 2017 at 11:31 pm

    Oh no, let's moan about the big draws being at the front of a promotional poster that totally isn't only being used to sell tickets.

    Let's use people like Alexa Bliss at the front because that will get the part time fans watching!

    What the hell are Charlotte, Sasha Banks, and Bayley doing near the front of the poster? They should be in the back, though Bayley could be where Sasha Banks is and then Charlotte and Sasha Banks could be where Kevin Owens and AJ Styles are. The women are taking the places that could be where Styles and Owens should be.

    I think the last minute changes for the Women's division make sense now versus how much sense they would have made had the creative team not gone through with those plans. It wouldn't have made sense for Sasha to cause bayley the title because if they're building a stoyline on Sasha facing Bayley there would have been a major roadblock they because of the booking on how Sasha and Charlotte would never compete against each other for a title match again. In tern which would have opened up a secondary stoyline between Bayley and Sasha which probably would have left Nia Jax versus Charlotte (Two heels mind you) So in the long run, I'm happy with those changes.
