WWE BLACKBALLS Talent Working With AEW?! Top WWE Star INJURED! | WrestleTalk News


Is there a superstar shakeup inbound to fix
the stale WWE rosters? WWE blackballs a former talent for working
with AEW? And a top star on Raw has picked up another
injury! Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk Trustworthy
news, I’m El Fakidor Laurie Blake. We’ve got a very important announcement
at the end of this episode, so please stick around, but let’s crack on with the news. Because just when you thought you were getting
a handle on what was going on with WWE, we’d reached a comfortable point where if you turned
on Smackdown you knew you’d see Reigns and Corbin, and if you’re watching Raw your
main event is some combination of Seth Rollins Stockholm Syndrome Squad vs Kevin Owens’
Chunky Chappies. I am of course being sarcastic – the bookings,
the rosters, I think you’ll agree are in need of a shakeup. Fortunately that’s exactly what might be
happening – wrestling journalist Tom Colohue reported back in December that a Superstar
Shakeup was planned for after WrestleMania. And he’s now reporting some firmer details
about what might be happening. Colohue said that the changes will be made
to address balance issues on the current Raw and Smackdown rosters. For instance the lack of faces on Smackdown
now that Miz has turned heel once more and Daniel Bryan is portraying more of a tweener
character, not quite full YES movement D Bry. In the Raw Women’s division, Becky has basically
beaten all of the competition quite handily, that’s why Shayna Baszler has now appeared
on the scene and started to chew her way through the competition. Tom also reckons that multiple NXT stars will
take the lateral move to Raw or Smackdown, name dropping Rhea Ripley getting a trade
after her Mania match with Charlotte and the Undisputed Era who have been victims of one
of the largest gold heists in WWE history. If Adam Cole were to lose at Takeover Tampa
Bay to say Finn Balor, an appearance at Mania or the Raw after could well be on the cards
for him, and hopefully the rest of the crew too. Colohue says, as ever, plans are subject to
change but that this is the ‘working plan at the moment’. If you are looking for freshness in NXT though,
losing superstars might not be the way to do it. So here’s a fun opinion from Ryan Satin:
“In my opinion, NXT needs their next big program. Not sure Gargano/Ciampa in reverse is quite
it though. People will hate to hear this, but I think
the ace in the hole is Kyle O’Reilly turning babyface and feuding with Adam Cole/Undisputed
Era.” I mean Kyle did look bummed out to have lost
his air guitar on NXT this week – maybe he could be a one man band and become the Undisputed
O’Reilly. One other way to refresh your shows is bringing
in new talent or even older talent who haven’t been seen for a while. But that would involve being on good terms
with them wouldn’t it. Hands up who thinks WWE is good at that… For instance, back in December Vickie Guerrero
made a guest appearance on an episode of AEW Dark, joining the commentary team alongside
Excalibur and Joey Janela. WWE naturally caught wind of this, not because
they see AEW as competition or anything, and have seemingly blackballed Guerrero as a result. On her ‘Excuse Me!’ podcast she said that: “I had asked to interview some Superstars
for my podcast, and they found out I went to AEW and now they don’t even talk to me,” She said before she appeared at AEW things
had been ok in terms of her relationship with the company, negotiations for her to interview
some WWE talent were going well, but she did reveal: “They didn’t call me for two years, I haven’t
heard from them, what did they expect me to do? Just to sit here and wait for them to call
so I could do some work?” Again it’s another case of WWE’s weird
approach to loyalty, we once hired you, so you should remain loyal, even if we’re not
currently paying you or ever actually made you a proper member of staff with health benefits. WRESTLING. Vickie closed with: “I love wrestling. I love to work in the ring. And if someone is giving me an opportunity
to go and show up and have some fun, then I should be able to because I’m not obligated
to anybody. I saw that I pissed in their Cheerios, so
be it.” TBH Pissing in their cheerios might explain
why they don’t call you any more. Sticking with WWE’s talent problem, there’s
also the not insignificant matter of the injuries to the current roster. Because it appears the Raw squad have been
struck yet again. Pro Wrestling Sheet are reporting that Samoa
Joe has picked up another injury while filming a WWE commercial. Apparently a table spot went wrong and Joe
hit his head which could take him out of action for a “considerable amount of time”. Though no official time table has been given. Dave Meltzer followed up saying that the knock
to the head could have left Joe with a concussion. It raises the question though why was there
a table spot in an advert, don’t they have footage of that already? and why they gave
it to the guy who has been blighted by injury since moving over from NXT. Joe was shelved with a broken thumb from September
last year until January 2020, he also reportedly suffered a concussion in a tag match at the
end of January taking him out for a couple of weeks And now this? I’d say it’s adding insult to injury but
it’s adding injury to injury. And it could be bad news for any Joe future
pushes if Vince decides that he is ‘injury prone’ which to be fair, for the first time
ever, he would have evidence to suggest. I mean that’s still not taking into account
the stupid things you asked people to do that got them injured – like hey, you want to do
a table spot to sell these WWE branded Pop starts, what’s that even got to do with…
go through the table Joe. On the more positive end of the injury spectrum
– i.e. recovery. Let’s talk Cain Velasquez. Wrestling Inc are reporting that Cain is back
at 100% after having his knee scoped. Velasquez was pulled from a WWE live event
in Mexico City late last year due to reported knee issues. It was said he’d been suffering for sometime
so that may have been why he lost to Brock in such short shrift as the plan was always
for him to go and have surgery. Wrestling Inc are also saying that Cain has
reported to the Performance Center and is expected to be there for the next two weeks
as he prepares for his next big match. Fortunately it looks like it will neither
be in Saudi Arabia or against Brock Lesnar, I’ve got my fingers crossed for Cain vs
Kane in a name on a pole match. Our big announcement is up next.

  1. Watch How Adam Would Book on PartsFUNknown here! shorturl.at/jqvFO
    Who do you want to see moved in the WWE 2020 Draft? Let us know in the comments!
    Superstar Shake-Up – 0:34 / WWE blackballs AEW stars? – 2:53 / Samoa Joe injured – 4:39 / PartsFUNknown – 7:12

  2. I'm sick and tired of Laurie, bring back El Fakidor

  3. Fuck I missed Blampied!

  4. Kyle oreily is the most underrated wrestler in UE but with that being said in KayFabe the only one who makes logical sense to turn on UE is Roderick Strong. Also that’s really fucked up about that they’re doing to Vickie

  5. Yeah, they NEED a shake-up, but not for everyone (Rhea, Candice, Io, Dakota, Tegan, Kushida, Cameron, Finn, and more still needs to stay). The titles that are showcased in the best ways, should be defended across the board to build their prestige (Women's Tag Titles and Cruiserweight Title). WWE has a big enough roster to always have fresh match-ups and storylines.
    I feel sorry for Joe smh.

  6. I am glad Adam is back on YouTube i liked his videos

  7. Another Draft wow ithought we just had one and WWE thinks everyone is supposed to wait until the phone rings to take a job that’s why we have AEW now for those who actually want to be booked – Highly Tyjie

  8. Samoa Joe is Injury Kinng

  9. That race in the hole would be fudging aWsome

  14. More Click bait lol. Wrestle Talk is famous now for click baits lol. WWE BlackBalls AEW stars? Or is it actually is a WWE start blackBalled for working with AEW?

  15. Same shit on injuries happen…to Chris Benoit

  16. WWE has been so historical in the past few years with historical matches and historical segments with historical booking and historical storytelling.
    The whole world gathers together every week like winter holidays to watch Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown.
    WWE is always headlining major news outlets.

  17. Please make adam blampieds booking videos a series I miss them

  18. fuck a roster shake up, they need a backstage shake up. get new and better writers, make edgier storylines, etc.

  19. Let's address the obvious elephant in the room. We love Adam blampied and its great to see him back in screen. Keep it coming! But how come he didn't go back to cultaholic? It's like seeing Frank lampard in a man City kit…

  20. Anything to make smackdown better

  21. Ryan Satin is an idiot

  22. Joe needs to retire. He would be an amazing heel commentator

  23. Draft nxt…Every WWE news it contains only one truth,Stamford fear Jacksonville…that's all and Vince does well

  24. keep all the NXT stars where they are, they are doing great, no need for them on the scrap shows.

  25. I understand that becuz it’s a wrestling reference lol

  26. How many more Gosh darn shake ups do we need?

  27. unopopular opinion but shayna and Rhea cute as hell

  28. WWE IS A CURSE TO JOE!!!

  29. I came here for wrestling news not your shitty cinema channel

  30. O’Reily is a future star for sure.

  31. yep, going to NXT is a "lateral" move, sure it is

  32. When Laurie Blake has the best beard 🙂

  33. I knew the ending was going to be that, you two have great chemistry 😉

  34. Adam and Laurie's chemistry is hilarious!

  35. Joe should be wrapped in bubble wrap next time he returns.

  36. Move over Morgan Freeman.. Adam Blampied is here to take your role as life's narrator.

  37. Cain vs Kane name on a pool match. Now that's comedy.

  38. Straying farther and farther away from why i liked you guys

  39. ScreenStalker is the XFL of WrestleTalk

  40. joe will miss another mania. wew

  41. Poor Joe, good luck telling Joe your push is over, he'll chock anyone out.

  42. Damn Joe's injuries reaching that Big Show turns level.

  43. Bring back WWE Superstar diaries!

  44. Here we go again. I thought we were done with the WWE Draft.

  45. Anything related to Baron Corbin needs to be rebooked

  46. Sorry but Samoa Joe needs to retire.. Too many injuries could lead him to a wheel chair

  47. I'm surprised Joe doesn't get injured playing video games on UUDD

  48. Damnit Joe…. we need you to be healthy and get that WWE title

  49. Samoa joes consistency of getting injured is jus as bad n pathetic as Sasha banks both need to retire time to pack their bags n leave da wrestling business to those who knows how to protect themselves from injures lol

  50. WWE r so damn petty I mean it’s immature n pathetic it’s their fault for lookin stupid for losing the best athletes in the business lol

  51. Joe needs to lose some weight

  52. Adam cracks me the fuck up dude

  53. Dance chopper 🕺🕺🕺

  54. What was up with that NWO music at the end…

  55. Okay, don't have your WWE stars featured on a podcast but instead AEW stars, brilliant.

  56. If Undisputed Era ends up being moved to the Main Roster, I sure hope WWE does right by the group. Also, the entire group needs to make the move together.

  57. Or main roster could just use the current wrestlers they have and not go with the a barren corban push forever. The always bring up good nxt wrestlers and don’t use them.

  58. WWE is petty af LOL and I’ve lost interest with the main roster. Hope they don’t change much with NXT.

  59. Is not the draft they need is how they use the wrestlers idiots

  60. He does a wonderful Vince Vince impression

  61. Joe would be champ if he could stay healthy

  62. I thought my Cheerios tasted funny

  63. I just don't like Adam as he was a creep.

  64. I’m just saying Vickie Guerrero with the “Excuse me” will always be a WWE thing but when she does it at AEW it’s not the same

  65. ugh I hate seeing Adam's punchable face, creep.

  66. 2:12 NO!!! DON'T MAKE UE APPEAR ON THE MAIN ROSTER!!!! THEY'LL BE BURIED!!!!!

  67. Poor Vickie. Vince McMahon is a petty manchild. An old senile superannuated delusional butthurt weirdo. He's lost what little mental cohesion he's had left. But there's always at least a few smarks that treat him like a deity.

  68. There is NO WAY the powers that be won't think Joe is injury prone at this point. He needs to go back to RoH or Impact, or head to AEW. His big roster moves are sadly over.

  69. "Why TF does someone do a table spot in an advert" because this is WWE Laurie lol

  70. Poor Joe😂good lord

  71. I'd love to see Plumpy fantasy book "What if Hogan backed out at the last minute and Sting became the 3rd man?" or "What if the Montreal Screw Job didn't happen?".

  72. Yes… but when do we get the Wrestletalk "Fake" news?

  73. There are things that shouldn't be told

  74. Samoa Joe having bad luck

  75. I feel a commercial with Oli taking a table spot could have saved Screenstalker 👍

  76. Hahahaha love wrestle talk

  77. The more joe gets hurt wwe will end up letting him go then AEW bound

  78. Isn’t Rhea staying in NXT?

  79. Another SHAKEUP?? We JUST HAD ONE!!! MAKE IT JUST STOP!! This is why raw and smackdown have an identity crisis, they don't let a roster grow for more than a year like from 2002-2004 -_-

  80. Anyone remember that SMACKDOWN had 2 future draft consideration picks. I'll use it to draft vacant and vacant. Pointless double double e shiit.

  81. Adam Beiber.
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  82. And once there we will get the joe we know. joe knows what he's doing

  83. Samoa Joe, the new master of the botch.

  84. I can’t click like until I see Adam

  85. Is SoCalVal returning to the new channel?

  86. I definitely think Cole/ O’Riley is not the way to go, at least not as the top feud. I’m not say Clampa/ Gargano is but I think NXT should move away from UE for a bit and give other talent a chance in the spotlight. UE has been in the top spot for the better part of two years. Don’t get me wrong UE is almost certainly the greatest team in NXT ever and one of the greatest ever in all of WWE, but I am a little tired of NXT basically being the UE show that features other talent. There is a mind boggling amount of talent in NXT that (if they get used at all) get mid card matches a large amount of the time.

  87. Adam Adam Adam Adam

  88. But how are we going to know if Luke beats Castlevania?

  89. I’ve been saying the undisputed era will get called up after wrestlemania, and yes I know it’s not a call-up any more, but I have no better terms for what it’s called, so please go with it.

  90. If undisputed era breaks up … I'm DONE with NXT

  91. The only real unbalance is the Raw women's division but to fair alot of people are hurt (Ember Nia Jax and Ruby just got back) and the Smackdown I.C. division

  92. please don’t call up/disband the Undisputed Era 🙁

  93. Long time of fan Adam Blamplied but if one third of your face is going to be teeth, then (at least) get them bleached as white as your hair.

  94. THAT D&D SHOW WILL BE AMAZING

  95. "Joe's gonna kill himself."

  96. The draft is so freaking stupid

  97. Hey I was wondering why I was subscribed to that channel. Will you guys do any normal video game content on the new one?

  98. When Adam started talking (after commercial) I was so confused. Not because he was saying nonsense, because he wasn’t, but because of how perfectly tuned it was after the commercial. I didn’t click skip so I was just watching. I legit was so confused. But then I just listened and stayed patient and it worked out in the end.
