The Show Must Go On: Wrestlemania Is Still Happening
"In the WWE. That is we say what our jobs are. Every day is to put smiles on people's faces all over the globe and we truly believe that and then this time maybe more than any other in in my memory people need those smiles right now more than anything that's WWE executive vice president. Paul Leveque better known as triple h talking about the decision to move forward with this weekend's wrestlemainia thirty six. It's the closest thing to live sports. That's happened in a wild but with no fans permitted the arena and concerns over the safety of the wrestlers and staff. What will the showcase of the immortals look like in the age of Corona virus? I mean at times. It's Friday April third this. Espn daily Greg. You're ready to talk wrassling. Damn Right Excel it talking about sports with funny named people trying to punch each other in the face. Greg Luzinski is a senior writer for. Espn you can check out. Lapsed Fan's guide to wrestlemainia on. Espn DOT COM. Yeah actually I wanted to ask you think. Most people know your name from hockey. How long have you been on the Wrestlemainia beat my wrestling a Bona Fides? Go back to when I was a we child watching Hulk Hogan and the more cartoonish W. F. which really sort of capture my heart as you know through the decades there have been times where it's been okay to say a wrestling fan and then sometimes when they've you don't mention it to a lot of people. I think we're in an okay dimension it part of wrestling right now. We're sort of a necessary to mentioned it portion because there's nothing else going on and wrestling is somehow improbably still happening. How is this even occurring? Well the way it's been occurring for the W. E. and their competition. A W which Ariza. Tnt network is that they've been holding shows in empty facilities but for me that means holding their weekly television programs raw and smackdown at the W. E. Performance Center a training facility in Orlando and what they've been doing literally holding it inside of an Empty Gymnasium. I'm the game triple agent. I would like to personally. Welcome you to the. Wwe Performance Center now. This show will be different from anything you've ever seen before. Sit Back Relax. And if you can't forget about the world around you and let. Wwe Do what we do. Let us put a smile on your face to start. That was a little bit awkward because the wrestlers would come out and they would look to the crowd. That wasn't there and they would do all of the usual pantomime they would do to get the fans excited except there was no fans getting excited. You see it doesn't matter if there's ten thousand fans at their zero fans because this is how I I remember that can only way I could describe it as it's like when you're at chucky cheese and the animatronic band starts playing into an empty room. It's still playing. It's still doing. Its own thing. But there's nobody that Iraq to it and that was like the first couple of weeks of this and also they've been utilizing more space around the performance center lake attacks in the parking lot and stuff like that to try to make it feel more than just trying to recreate something inside of an empty room derailed. Me With that chucky cheese analogy this. It's the it's the rock afire explosion ban. Greg get it right. There's nothing better than being in an empty room with the rock afire. Explosion Band and just hearing the gears clunk together. It's jarring but also satisfying so wrestlemainia. Thirty six is happening on Saturday. What was the original plan for the event the original plan was to hold wrestlemainia? Thirty six at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa and this was going to be a huge event for those who don't know it's not just simply wrestlemainia. Inside of a stadium. It is an entire city being overrun by. Wwe events you have the Access Fan Festival you have the WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony. Where wrestlers of old honored and put into a virtual hall of fame. Physical building doesn't exist quite yet and then also after Wrestlemainia the next day on Monday. It's tradition to hold Monday night raw in that same city so this isn't just simply one event on a on a on a Saturday night for The city of Tampa. It was a whole citywide sort of celebration for wrestling as of March. Third The W. E. and Tampa's mayor said there were no plans to postpone the event the W. E. said look the health safety of our fans and performance of our top priorities. But we remain committed to hosting Wrestlemainia at Raymond. James Stadium fast forward to March twelfth. Now you have Hillsborough County's commissioner less Miller saying he'll probably have to cancel wrestlemainia if the. Wwe doesn't make the decision itself because of the virus pandemic governor Rod Santa's that points that cities and counties should cancel mass gatherings over the next thirty days and so it was becoming a worse than worse. Look for W. E. to keep wrestlemainia scheduled framing Jamie Stadium on March sixteenth. They made the decision not to have upwards of sixty five seventy thousand people come to a stadium during a virus outbreak and instead moved into their performance center in Orlando. It's a two night event April fourth and April Fifth. How has wwe justified or explained their decision to go on with us? Well there's the public explanation and then there's the assumed explanation that the public explanation according to the WWe is that it is for the fans the fans are the lifeblood of the organization it is a panacea the fans to be able to hold this event. It is going to give them some comfort in a time of confusion and trouble. It's also going to be arrested for the performers themselves who you know are looking for some direction or looking for some focus in life during uncertain times. And that's sort of the the public explanation for this. If you know about the wrestling business you know that part of this is the fact that story lines that are going to have their big payoff. At wrestlemainia are a month long process. All the story lines all the action. They all run through. Vince McMahon they are on one track. And they're going to stay on that track through hell or high water. These are storylines narratives that the W has been planning to wrap up in culminate at Wrestlemainia happens every year and then they kind of moved to new stuff after that so from a function process to have wrestlemainia occur and wrap up which are the signature feuds and storylines of their season. If you will was a pretty important thing was there any blowback to all of this. Yeah I think there has been some in the rest in wrestling circles amongst wrestling reporters and and amongst the fans wondering okay. We are looking around the sports world. We're looking around the entertainment world. We're seeing literally every pro league every concert tour Disney on ice everything canceling out of concern about corona virus and yet professional wrestling roles on as a weekly television product so there is a bit of confusion. There're two why this continues while every other facet of sports entertainment seems to have stopped. What about amongst the wrestlers did any of them have reservations about participating in this one particular did so wrestler by the name of Roman reigns one of the bigger stars and WWe had a very highly publicized battle with leukemia? He left in October. Two thousand eighteen returned to WWE IN FEBRUARY. Two thousand nine thousand nine hundred and he's compromised so news started to break recently through some of the quote unquote dirt sheets in wrestling. The ones who report the rumor. Innuendo that Roman reigns was not going to be participating in his scheduled match against Goldberg for the Universal Championship at Wrestlemainia. Wwe basically said hey look. This is understandable situation. The health and safety of our performers paramount Sakiz. The biggest name that we know will not be participating but quite frankly until we see what events they air this weekend we won't know who else may have decided to pull out or had to be quarantined or any of that nature because they're being very clandestine about what the card will actually be the first wrestlemainia. That's taking place over multiple nights. It's also the first wrestlemainia that is going to be completely pretaped. So when did they take this weekend's event and what steps did they take to ensure the safety of the wrestlers in the people working on it? It's been a race against time for me. As I mentioned the performance center is in Orlando Florida Orlando Florida. Recently issued a stay at home order March twenty sixth that really closed out all the essential businesses. Just like we've seen all over the country so the WBZ has been racing. It's time to not only record wrestlemainia matches but also record. Future television matches programming as well as far as the safety of the wrestlers. It is a closed control facility. Stephanie McMahon the daughter of owner Vince McMahon who is the brand manager for WWe said to variety. Recently there's extensive testing screening. When you first come into the facility regardless of whether you're a talent crew member or anyone else if you have a temperature taken and you have a temperature over a hundred point four degrees you're automatically asked to leave also any wrestlers de out of the country or in contact anybody who's been out of the country you're not actually allowed to enter the facility. Either so they are taking some safety measures as far as trying to make sure anyone exhibiting symptoms isn't allowed in the facility or anyone who might have been exposed to corona virus through travel or relationships isn't allowed in the facility. Which is you know what you see from other companies as well but obviously there's no way to be sure without Virus testing whether anybody actually has the center of city so they tape this before the stay at home order. Does that mean this is going to be the last big event like this or is this something they're going to keep on doing? There is a lot of sort of mystery as to how these wrestling organizations are going to continue to keep on doing their thing. I'm not sure what the regulations mean for the performance in Orlando. I don't know if this is GonNa be it for their use facility or not. I can't tell you that. Eighty w their competition with also filming inside of an empty facility in Florida's well and there was news this week that they're gonNA be taking their show to some undisclosed to record matches going forward so I don't know if it's GonNa be a shell game where these companies have to start going to the few places around the country that don't have restrictions in place or what have you. But it's clear from both cases that even though they're putting a bunch of their product in the bag right now in our taping matches and episodes for future use on television. The show apparently is going to go on

"roman reigns" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"He is three time WWE world champion play college football. Georgia Tech played in the NFL for short period of time of Minnesota in Jacksonville played in the CFO as well. Tremendous story. Tremendous athlete. Great guy, the one and only Roman reigns. On the line with yours, truly what's going on, man. How are you? Undoing good Stephen engine traveling around and I'm doing great man on privilege to have you on the show. And thank you for being on the television show earlier today, you know, you're going to be a part of a wrestlemainia third resume thirty five that's Sunday night. April April seven at MetLife. Stater. I I because this is just I'm just particular about the stuff Roman. I mean, one of us cold out there. You're gonna be cool put fighting outside. You know? Luckily, we have a great crew that can build these sets for us at that made it pretty comfortable yet. We can't control the weather where I met life stadium. The set is going to be humongous. If you know anything about resume, we go big. So it'll be huge. I I'm more concerned about the walk down, the ramp to be honest. Once we get to the ring they'll have like an overhead, you know, all be part of the set Mel build like a roof over the ring. It's so big you might not even be able to see it from television. But that's why you have to come and see a live person. That's why there's no tickets like anything else like wrestlemainia. So if you ever get a chance to experience the biggest event of all time live, it really does it Justice. You may not notice about me, man. I go back today the whole call in and Andre the giant, man. I I mean, I've talked about rowdy Roddy. Piper. You know, the macho man, Randy savage. I mean, all of these guys I go back, and I've never missed watching a wrestlemainia, but I've never. Actually been the one live. What does it? Go ahead. It's it's massive like this scale. I was trying to explain it a little bit. But it doesn't do it Justice. You know, if feels huge on television, but everything from the reactions to just back shore. I mean, we're enough so Paul stadium, man. You know what? I mean. It's one thing if you're doing hockey arenas of basketball, ten thousand max twenty thousand people, but we from eight thousand people all the way up to one hundred thousand people. So it's it's it's it's the biggest event that you can possibly imagine a little bit of every type of entertainment, it's not like just going to a concert or one, you know, John river, and we we mix in a little bit of everything. So we really think everybody gets I mean more than, you know, more than they're paying for along with the full week of wrestlemainia access. So, you know throughout the week, not only for the communities, but a lot for our fans as well. You know, when you come to these destination that these huge markets that host wrestlemainia, you can see how. So we kinda down and how we party with. And it's a good time for everybody. We're talking to WWE three-time champion Roman reigns. He's live here.
Women to close out WrestleMania for first time
"WWE is going to make a little history with wrestlemainia this go around at outta MetLife. Big. It's a big deal. It's a huge deal for the first time ever. It's an all woman main event, it's a three way match, you know, with Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, whose champion were raw women's champions around the rousing shallow flair and Becky Lynch does the freeway match. It would be the main event. Some would call it the final match while from us. Call the main event Seles match. Yeah. So. You know, some folks thought maybe Brock listener. And Seth Rollins will be the main event, it's not universal title. This is for the raw women's championship. And you know. It says a huge deal. This is great not just for the business. It's just for the restaurant business, but it's great for women's wrestling because women's wrestling over the past several years has come such a long way, not just from WWE other companies to and the women aren't just looked at as as it used to be years ago. When it just I candy, he's a legitimate athletes. These are legitimate performance legitimate WB superstars, and these three ladies Shala flare rows and Becky alleged. They're gonna tear it down. It's going to be great. It's going to be great. And to do it at MetLife. Another just we're wrestlemanias. Always at these big big stadiums. Just like the SuperBowl, isn't pack them. Okay. You're gonna have close to eighty thousand people. Okay. At wrestlemainia people from all over WorldCom. And that just makes me so proud like as a former wrestler, a former wrestling broadcaster. You know, how many years it's taken? But it's finally like I was saying during the break to you and Andrew bogusch. Not really awesome. How so many worldwide mainstream sports verticals in sports, broadcasts companies, and and worldwide entertainment companies supporting with w w pro wrestling does on their websites on TV just a little while move says, you know, you're going to have Roman reigns. And all ladies the ladies in the main advantages named ought to be a sports center on ESPN on TV. I mean, so and and they're going to be doing suffered ESPN they did stuff last year too. So I'm just saying I just so it's just so refreshing that it's the the entertainment value is respected by the sports world. And the athleticism is is respected by the bulk of the sports world. So, but this is a huge thing. I mean, this is huge. And it's it's happy for I don't be rude. I'm happy for Charlotte flair and Becky Lynch of these ladies they paid their dues a lot of years. Lot of skin in the game. A lot of. A years. Lots of years, okay before WWE, Rhonda Rousey, she's new to the game. She'd been paid dues and the wrestling business. Great great MMA. She's a UFC hall of Famer. She's a amazing grand champion judoka. Which is a a junior champion. So amazing athlete and she brings massive stop power. But I'm old school wrestling traditionalists, and those two other ladies paid a lot of dues flair and Lynch, but Ronda Rousey is helping draw draw the helps draw the main event, obviously because I'm a stop out. Yes, she does. But not as popular as the other two amongst wrestling fans. No rescue domino. You said and you're right. And the reason is because bring name power put the wrestling fan or fans of Becky Lynn me the reason is because of respect. Yeah. Because they know like I just said the wrestling fan knows that those ladies paid a lot of deuce and Rhonda hasn't. But that's not the main reason she she's her character, which is good. They have for doing this more out of health the fans and a bunch of nerds in their basement. She's going that route which is called cheap. It's easy to do that works. It's fine. So that's helping hurt that helps her as a heel as a bad guy dead girl, get that heat. But the fans also know when she talks on a Mike is just terrible is no juicy. There's no other way to put. She's yes. I'm sorry. She's great, and my disrespecting handing she's done athletically, or what she means in for the WWE attached. But I mean, I just look at I look at the other two is just better overall. When you put everything in place. I, you know, I look at them as better overall women rested. And I just want to say this to like anybody who thinks wrassling. I listen, you watch any stuff leading up to the smack just for example, what Shala flare Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, go on YouTube goal. WBZ's website watch the physicality that's happening with these ladies. Yeah. Okay. Watchhouse fifties kicks and punches are that will watch. And so anybody who thinks any different is a dumb ass. It just doesn't stand and they have this archaic thinking, and it's it's sad because that's kind of like uncalled Alec. It's like wrestling's embraced now. It's it's sitting here on a national sports radio show. And we're talking about this. You'll have you'll have broadcasters here on CBS sports radio. Talk about wrestlemanias that leads to on WFAN here. Locally to know wherever you might anywhere anywhere. You live right, right. Talking about this. Because it like I said they're fixing to be on ESPN. Right. It's it's clearly it's clearly more mainstream and has got more mainstream as we've gone along here. And I, you know, put all that, you know, everything you said is true TASR. I just think you look at the growth of the women are the women's wrestler. The woman wrestler in professional wrestling is just remarkable. Because you mentioned in terms of now, I remember the days of sable, right? And not even not even go back where you know, you mentioned candy and everything was calling that stuff. You know that birthday. We'll see. So. So it's so significantly different the way that they're treated and appreciated now much significant. Yeah. And they've earned it. I mean, and they do a great job. I mean, we've interviewed you know, we interviewed Charlotte all week. That's right special winter, she was doing stuff a special, which is which the WWE designate job their outreach into the communities, and helping those that need it, and she talked about that. And and we know how big of a star Becky Lynch's and Ronda Rousey, she's got some work to do in terms of. I don't know if it's ever gonna get there with her on the Mike, but we know how great of a of a physical specimen. Well, then the thing is I do think like just a my opinion that I think they if if if if something McConnell McGregor happens would w w at wrestlemania guy the table set here, you get this main event here like we said earlier, I talked about this earlier. And I'll talk about more on my podcasts on the tashaun get deeper in the woods on the wrestling. But the thing is like you got you got one of the girls listing Becky Lynch and who's probably gonna win the championship. At wrestlemainia, and for those that don't know harmonica. Her name is she's the man so speculates as you know, Muslim. She's the man that's like the gimmick. And 'cause she's the man, but she's a woman. But it's it's just a gimmick. Right. But anyway, she's from Ireland. Okay. We know Conor McGregor is from Ireland. We know Rhonda rows economy McGregor offer ends. I could see something happened where I would strongly predict if f Conor McGregor gets involved. You know, and everybody's gonna hack this for me on this radio station. Just throw some credit over here to task. I would think that Conor McGregor helps Becky somehow some way maybe if he's involved win the match that'd be cool and win the championship. Because then they could go down the road where Rhonda's pissed at McGregor, and they could do something potentially further down the
WWE - Roman Reigns announces his leukemia diagnosis
"McMahon. And it's rough definitely for Roman reigns. Apparently, he's been dealing with it for eleven years. So all the best Roman reigns. A guy that always he goes in does for young people. Wish all he does for that company stepping away from the company so all the best Roman reigns there. And I'm sure I'll be talking about that this week on Tuesday. Wrestling Tuesday, part of my podcast that I do for under the hood with childhood. Glad you're with this. Here's we talk bears. Three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six phone number as the bears lose to the New England Patriots thirty eight to thirty one. We asked on the poll question, we're asking the lines as well is your letter grade for the bears to the first six games of the season. Fifty percent of you say see forty three percent of you say Bs. So it's pretty close between the CNBC. It's not a it's not a D. It's really a B minus two a C. It's three and three your five hundred. I mean, I mean, you can make five hundred sound how you want. If it wasn't for this play. If it wasn't for this happiest the the Packers. If it wasn't for these plays against the Miami Dolphins. If it wasn't for those plays against the patriots yesterday. Bottom line is is that those losses. But there are wins. There as well. And as I mentioned in our first hour, I'm looking to be wrong about the bears. Seventy nine is not bad when you have a first year coach and you're trying to dig out from underneath. I'm just hoping for better for this bears team that maybe they're better than I think, but we have to see as the season progresses. See how they're going to work out. I think that what I've seen for the bears. The first six games is similar to. Maybe what you see is that there's some improvement there with the offense. But it's still a long way to go because there are so many different wrinkles with this offense. And you look at the defense the defense look played well early you see how the defense is playing when Khalil Mack one hundred percent. This is not just a Khalil Mack defense there other guys defensively to need to step up as well. It's not Leonard Floyd defense. Others have to be able to get to the quarterback. Maybe it happens against Sam darnold on Sunday. We'll see. But I just when I saw from the bears defense last couple of games reminded me of lovey at the end. And really a lot of the John FOX era in which there is a lot in between there. We're after the the kickoff is there and the the opposite team is settled Lynn there's a lot of lot of plays in the back of the linebackers in front of the secondary cash cash over and over again big plays missed tackles that can't happen. Can't happen. So I I'm I'm I don't care if you're a team that's not just for the playoffs or not. That's gotta get better. So we're talking to you about this on the spirits Monday. Three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six is our phone number some thoughts from Mitch Trubisky. There's a lot of under throws and as a mistakes made by Trubisky. He just thought he played all right in yesterday's performance. If the patriots. All right made some plays here. And there we're moving the ball offense. But then you just go back to those given the ball away the Turner assumptions and not that I thought they were bad decisions or anything or bad throws. Just fifty fifty balls and the credit goes from making plays. But we got to continue to take care of the football. That's on me. But we didn't have the balls offense. Probably way we battled which gotta make sure that we just come closer together and get better from the experience and and go back to work this week because it takes all three phases and all eleven guys at the same time on each and every single play. So thought we did some good things. I thought I played all right. And just gonna watch the film and see what we can do even better feel like I left some completions out there. Immediately. You come back. You look at the completion percentage that you just want to complete every throw you you go out there. But I thought I gave him my my team a chance to win. We are close on the last play. But like I said before it's a combination of plays throughout the game. Which you gotta make sure that we continue to get better as an offense. I thought we did some good things today. But we just gotta make sure that we continue to clean up clean up. Our mistakes be even better on third down in the red zone. Continue to move the football and take pressure of our defense and special teams and make sure we're getting better in those areas. Well, so keeping proving as a team three one two three three two ESPN's are full number. Your letter grade for the bears in the first six games of the year. Greg in stream would on ESPN without Greg. Hey, how you doing? Thanks for taking my call. Thanks for your call. So my letter rate is a sea and to start off by head the bears at the beginning of season at six and eight then they got Khalil Mack. I went to seven and nine then after the first couple of games, and like, oh, maybe there in eighteen and the reason at the C is there. They're making a lot of the same stakes over and over and a say into games, they're not learning from their mistakes like miss tackles last against Tampa, you clean that up. And then you see a whole bunch of the patriot. Same thing for Mitchell Trubisky miss. This passes overshooting under throwing and then passes in the end zone where he doesn't see defender. I mean, those are the reasons I think they're they're not learning from their previous mistakes. All right. So you had them at six eight and one apparently a tie was going to be in that mix as well. All right. My friend. I'm glad you checked in Greg. I appreciate your phone calls. Some good thoughts there. He leaves line. Open three one two three three two ESPN's our phone number Mike in Lakeview with Jonathan owners. We talked bears on ESPN one thousand Michael, hey, how's it going? I'm just I'm confused. How people are getting a B if we're three and three, but I don't know. Aside from that. I give the bears or be right now. We're we're we're barely getting by. You know, we're barely passed. And we're three and three. I went to the game on Sunday. I was there. And I saw things that the coach didn't see I saw an injured Khalil Mack out there. Just basically like a pond I saw we let Tom Brady do whatever he wanted in the back young out and he made a lot of passes. We gave them time. I saw sloppy special teams which I haven't seen in a long time. You can't excuse special teams ball on that one kick return has to feel was wide open. I don't know where the coaching was on that. Or what special teams play that was? So I've seen a lot of negatives and three and three. And I mean, that's the record three and three is five hundred percent. So I give us a D. We're barely. We're barely squeaking by right now. And we're almost to the halfway point. And we're at risk of repeating last year over again. So fifty percent back in school was failing record, right? Yes. It was. I just graduate. You I see if you get fifty speech. You might be at her about give him a d a d for NFL curb. But if I don't know what school they went to the fifty fifth is not good go flames bike. Go flames. I don't know, man. I they played good last year. When I was there flames, you say go there, you go buddy. That was that really was the hallmark of flames fan there. Go flames. We really didn't play. Well, that Larry we could have played better at Fort Wayne game, usually the the laments from the literally go flames, you know. The yearly could have won the horizon last year. He'd be another beer bartender is usually when hot is it literally put this on the poll Felix at ESPN one thousand do you see things that Matt Nagy doesn't see? Yes. Or no. Mike Mike from Lakeview said he was at the game. And he saw things that Matt Nagy did not see on film. Three one two three three two ESPN is our telephone number John and Juliet would Jonathan hood here on ESPN one thousand here on this beer down Monday. Hello, john. Hey, how you doing for taking my call? You know, I'm doing we're we're we're three and three staring into the jets game. You know what I'm doing? I know you don't want though Brady didn't walk in the league and was a Super Bowl champion to begin with Pfizer some stuff. So you know, what I I give them a c plausible because at least offense has some kind of program. That is almost reminiscing. What New England does not too many teams have them. I don't wanna be the giants right now. At least at least they have a little bit assaulter role in the right direction. So I mean, don't let's not get down on Brady didn't come in. And just went Super Bowls. It took a while before. He did I understand. But I think that when you on this city, you have to call it the way you see it. Meaning that if there's some good and some bad see, that's the thing. This is not a D effort. I understand I understand Mike from Lakeview. He's the fan. So of course, he he sees things with the glass half empty. But what I'm saying is is that there's some five hundred the way, I look at it is there's some good and some bad like this. You're right. It could be the giant. It could be a bad situation. It's not usually this first year teams when a coaching staff looks at his roster and says man, there's a lot guys can't play on this roster. We cleaned up. And we got to get better for your two year three or four. Here's something that I think that I see that. Matt Nagy doesn't see he didn't see that that Josh Bellamy. And Dion SIMS should not be on this roster.

"Daniel bryan take bumps and the responsibility that we have as fans to protect our favorite wrestlers now again i said and i stand by on my youtube show that i put the full responsibility of the health of these wrestlers in the hands of wwe now because i feel like i can trust them so i i don't i personally feel like if wwe is telling me that daniel bryan has cleared to compete then he's healthy and they in the press release they gave out a list of doctors all the specialists that daniel bryan was talking about seeing in his promo is real they gave out the names of the doctors that cleared him and then they gave out the name of their medical director wwe has a doctor already involved in a loss of potential lawsuit they're not going to put a doctor their doctor's name on something that's a risk i just don't think it's going to happen i think our duty is fans is to have faith in the wwe system if we as fans do not have faith in wwe's system to try to avoid injuries as much as possible then arkansas earned shouldn't be that the employees are going to get hurt the competitors are going to get hurt our concern should be or our our energy should be spent at wwe saying you need to protect these guys not the guys themselves if that makes sense you know i storyline wise i think that that emotion that we all feel when you know being worried about daniel bryan because we were told for so long that he couldn't handle any of these hits that emotion is gonna get played upon and it's gonna make for a more compelling natch but realistically none of us are doctors most of his don't know daniel bryan most of us don't know exactly what's wrong it's not up to us.

"Really only one way you can go with it even though we spent an hour talking about it on youtube earlier this week you can see it over at youtube dot com slash not sam we did it live but that's daniel bryan returning to a wwe ring i thought the speech on smackdown was incredible i thought it was perfect you know i i've said it before but i think the daniel bryan story and really just his career but a little bit of his personal life to the daniel bryan story is going to make an amazing motion picture one day and not a wrestling movie a movie movie i mean this is a story unlike any i've ever seen before and it's real life and it's so special and i'm so excited but like as good as i felt after daniel bryan speech on tuesday night i was like my wife came downstairs because she heard me audibly laughing and it wasn't laughing because i thought it was funny it was laughing because i was happy i was so happy that i was laughing when daniel bryan german suplex i think sammy's eighteen or kevin owens whichever one it was but when he started running between sammy and kevin from corner to corner and dropping those kicks and landing on the floor and getting up and dropping those kicks first of all i was excited enough when i could see that kevin owens tammy's aim we're going to beat up daniel bryan because the fact that they beat him up means that he's ready to go wwe would never have let him take a bump if he wasn't ready to go when they beat him up i said this is real he's really been cleared its physical competition with daniel bryan this is incredible.

"You know i don't i don't know i i wouldn't fight it but i'm also not sitting here you know i'm i'm happy with mark henry's placement this year you know i think that he really he really adds a lot to this class i think that that fills this class out in a way that really makes it a cool class so i think the big show will end up headlining class though and i'm happy with that but i'd like to see the big show in duct mark henry of john cena can't because another big moment that would be hearken back to is the night that mark henry and the big show collapsed the ring you know that's only been done a few times and that's going to be one of those visuals that lasts forever so i think either johnson or the big show should induct mark henry i think it's more likely that the big show will do it because i think they would only want john seen to induct a headliner and i wouldn't see johnson inducting goldberg this year plus he just inducted somebody last year so my preference would be john cena but realistically i think it'll be the big show and i'm happy with the big show inducting mark henry as well it also gives the big show a spot on the hall of fame it gives him a spot at wrestlemainia weekend which other than this he he doesn't have at the moment so that's what i think about mark henry moving on to story number two this week is something that a lot of people have been asking me about on twitter asking me about in the comments on my youtube video about daniel bryan and that's the ultimate deletion the bray wyatt matt hardy ultimate i believe it was called the ultimate deletion broken matt or woken met this isn't broken met woken matt and bray at the hearty compound i couldn't believe personally that i'm watching monday night raw and i get to see the return of senior benjamin of queen rebecca of king maximal i couldn't believe.

"Aj sounds versus nakimora could potentially steal the show for match of the night you got roman reigns and brock ledge ner as your main event you got john cena and the undertaker as your i never thought in a million years this match would happen we need to inject some juice into ronda rousey and kurt angle versus triple h and stephanie so that people actually have a conversation about where these matches are going to go on the car because right now that mix tag match the only thing that's keeping it in the conversation of maybe this match will close the show is ronda rousey star power but even that i don't think is enough i don't think it's in the conversation right now to close the show of wrestlemainia thirty four and it should be in that conversation so hopefully over the course of the next two weeks we'll see some stuff on raw involving ronda rousey that's really going to make us talk about this because this is not just let's see ronda rousey in a ring because that's what the vignettes have been telling me with her working out it's the vignettes are pointing me in a direction of this is a curiosity factor i wanna see what ronda rousey can do in a wwe ring this is a lot more than that you're involving triple h and stephanie involving kurt angle like this is a high caliber match with real story behind it so let's start telling that story in my personal humble opinion that story isn't being told and i absolutely think that it needs to be told speaking of stories being told we move onto story number three this week so story number two is ronda rousey not being on tv and how audit was that.

"I think that the women's division reacting to ronda rousey maybe some kind of explanation or ronda rousey is not going to be on tv let's see something between triple h and kurt like let's really develop that story a little more maybe you bring up the love triangle that existed in the past if you're gonna talk about ronda rousey and stephanie mcmahon from two years ago why not talk about triple h and kurt angle and stephanie mcmahon and the love triangle it existed twelve years ago actually more than that at this point fifteen years ago why not bring that up you know that's the thing that's the thing that wrestling fans remember that's that's the most watched era of wwe so people are gonna remember that we have all the footage we can go to the wwe network if we want to see it which is a great commercial for the wb network but why not bring night up why not clarify why kurt angle started this whole mess in the first place if kurt angle is scared of losing his job why would he almost in a confusing way why would he say what he said about triple h and stephanie and what they said about ronda rousey like why why is all this happening there's still a lot of questions and we've got to roz left until wrestlemainia i personally think that ronda rousey should be on television every week because everytime ronda rousey does something on raw people are going to talk about it and it's different from the dana brooke thing like the dana brooke thing it's like okay it's almost like a demonstration of what rhonda can do and it's not storyline and it's not on wwe tv i think if you do it on wwe tv and it storyline and it's over the top people are going to talk about it a lot more and that's the whole point of doing this and that's how you get people excited about this match because i mean let's let's think about it.

"Mainly because this was a triple threat match it went a few minutes you know it wasn't a long match by any stretch of the imagination but it certainly wasn't you know thirty seconds brock got there was offense and defense by brock leser he took punishment he dealt out punishment from both branch brunch roman and kane there is action going on between tena brunch stroman like it was a match that lasted several minutes but what was and of course broccoli has no one but was any pin kane which is not i don't think a surprise to anybody that's canes kind of role in that match but what was interesting to me what i think is the most interesting thing about this was that braun stroman before intermission got the opportunity to look strong braun strowman even though he didn't win the match after the match he'd be i can't remember which which bad guy he beat up but one of the you guys came out he beat up one of the bad guys like he still had his moment to look strong in the ring and to leave with his music playing and to hold up his arms for the audience and let everybody cheer him i mean they are treating braun strowman like he's the next big good guy i think there is no way the bronze stroman will not be wwe champion as a good guy by wrestlemainia thirty five you know you give it a year because obviously they're going to give roman some time and and keep roman in that spot but i truly believe braun stroman will be wwe champion within a year from today bronze romans is going to be the guy probably a lot less than a year but i think that that the look my concept was give it several months and sometime in the summer let the ms beat brunch stroman i mean let them is beat roman reigns for wwe championship and maybe around royal rumble time let brunch strom.

"Cashing in on it but he's living up to expectations at this point and i think that the triple threat wrestlemainia is i think that they're going to attempt to steal the show and i think that that's going to be a big deal because all three of those guys are just excellent but i was happy to see that and i did get into it with the ms at ringside as i said the videos on my instagram account at night sam but you know i i'm not i'm not afraid to voice my opinion of them is this was the first show actually the first wwe's show i think since i started doing kickoff shows that i watched the whole thing in the crowd meaning you know i went to the reno went to wilco picked up my tickets when when inside sat down and out of the whole thing and i was great just getting to watch as a fan because honestly that's all i am so i love getting to watch that way and luckily i was close enough to the ring that when the ms came out and started kind of posing for the crowd he saw oh my thumb pointed down in his face booing because you don't what we do here on sam roberts wrestling podcast we booth the bad guys when we go to shows we've moved the bad guys and the ms is a bad guy so one of the guys sitting in front of me he goes hey man who you rooting for and i said the good guys of course i'm rooting for the good guys that's what i do that's what this shows all about we do the bad guys and we cheer the good guys and that's what i was doing and so i was booing the ms throughout the match he saw me and at one point he lets the ms dry bo dallas and curtis axel he lets them get beat up in the ring and stuff and take care of whatever they're taking care of as he not only left the apron but left the entire ring and was over in the corner near the guardrails that's the point when i started yelling at him and calling him a coward and telling him to get in there now he had the nerve to.

"Instagram account which is at night sam with me in the ms yelling at each other i went to the madison square garden how show on friday night of last week at the time of this recording and it was it was actually a really great show it was it was longer than most shows are not in a bad way but it had a lot of a lot of special attraction matches like enough that i didn't really know what was going to be the main event and what was going to go on before intermission and all that stuff so just going over the special attraction matches it had your main event which they put the right matches the main event because centered around the current active roster guys the main event was thin ballor seth rollins and roman reigns as a team versus the ms the ms dhiraj now i love that was the main event for a couple of reasons specifically for finn valor because if you remember it really wasn't that long ago that we were watching finn ballard lose two guys like kane on wrong and we felt like the bloom was off the rose if that is the correct expression it might not be but we felt like maybe fin ballard was not being looked at as positively as he once was within the wwe that is obviously not happening anymore you got fim ballard who by the way this week and you see the shirts he put out i can't believe he got away with that i know technically the bc is the ballard club but he's got some shirts that say oh gee bbc for him luke gallows and karl anderson and they're on wwe shop i mean that's amazing there's no wwe logo on it anywhere good for finn ballor but looking at watching thin ballard in that spot as in these are our top three straight up good guys these guys are on the same level is like a pretty cool thing and a very nice spot to be for valor and i feel like it's working i feel like thin valor is is i don't want to say.

"They've announced you're going to have the fifty man for the first time ever fifty man royal rumble match and they said on instagram this week seven title matches which is all of them right the wwe universal smackdown tag team raw tag team the two women's championships and either the us or the intercontinental one title is not going to be on the line all the rest of them will i don't know which is not going to be on the line but every title except for one i guess we'll be on the line and you've got the fifty man greatest royal rumble unless maybe that greatest royal rumble is going to have a title on the line who knows i think they're going to spend a lot more time after wrestlemainia promoting that thing especially if it's going to be a network special but i love if they've brought down the number of paper views why not make these big shows networks specials a lot of us were complaining that the stark aid show in greensboro in december was not a network special now we're getting what we want so i think that's fun a lot of people who heard the interview live so the interview that we did came out the same day that the guy the johnny bravo guy who's making all these videos that are his interviews with this guy who's accusing people of using steroids the jailhouse interviews that we talked about the video that was supposed to have all this evidence specifically about roman reigns came out the same day we recorded that interview just later on in the day and i mean there was nothing to it nothing there was no evidence really about anybody in particular except guys that know guys will there's all this evidence of this trainer and this trainer knows john cena and roman reigns imbaba but and it was it's ridiculous it really is ridiculous but the reason why i said in the interview even before the video came out is i think that everybody knows that it's false is because i think everybody does know it's falls i think you know people who don't like roman reigns probably want it to be true but i think realistically nobody is sitting there going like oh yeah that sounds reliable to me i think that sounds like.
