It was obviously supposed to be the Royal Rumble winner, Roman Reigns taking on the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar. However due to extreme uproar and backlash from the fans, the wrestling observer is reporting that Vince McMahon had a meeting with top company executives to discuss another triple threat main event.
The other combatant to be added to the contest was the same that was added to the main event last year, Daniel Bryan. Bryan will face Reigns in the main event of Fast Lane, which is the last pay-per-view before Wrestlemania, for the opportunity to face Brock Lesnar at the show of shows.
Another show on The WWE Network that is making waves and attracting a wide range of audiences is Stone Cold Steve Austin’s podcast. He pulls no punches and normally asks questions that most of the fans want answered. One fan that enjoys it is the Hardcore Hall of Famer Mick Foley. Different from Austin’s podcast, Foley likes to write blogs and recently he wrote one on his thoughts of Austin’s show.
Foley had mostly a positive reaction to the podcast and mainly praised it and Austin.
“Well, I said I was taking a break from WWE Monday Night Raw and#Smackdown for a couple weeks…and I did. But I just couldn’t resist watching the #StoneColdPodcast with Paul “Triple H” Levesque – and I’m glad I did.
Stone Cold Steve Austin has got himself a heck of a podcast there son, and #WWENetwork has got themselves a compelling original series, which is a natural follow-up to #RAW.
Steve is just damn good. He clearly knows his stuff, doesn’t back away from the tough questions, makes it fun, and that hour just goes racing by. Credit should be given to Triple H too, for being so honest with the fans, and for building something so special in #NXT. If NXT is Triple H’s baby, then love him, or hate him, you have to admit the guy’s a good dad.
Here’s the obvious challenge facing #WWE and the podcast: after featuring Vince McMahon and Triple H, where do you go from here? Will WWE allow their top superstars to be grilled by a no-BS guy like Austin, and how honest will they feel comfortable being.”
