As expected, Chris Jericho is taking some time off from the WWE. Officially, it’s because Kevin Owens powerbombed him into the apron and he’s injured. Unofficially, of course, his time off is because he is busy touring with his rock band Fozzy.

It’s Royal Rumble season, folks, which means one thing – it’s time to start looking at all those crazy stats from the storied 30 year history of the January classic.
It’s the first week of the new Kevin Owens show, and one would imagine that all sorts of people were looking for revenge against the man who basically had the Universal Title handed to him by Triple H last week! We’ve got all the results of this week’s Raw right here!
Reports have surfaced which suggest that Roman Reigns’ suspension just before the Brand Extension changed more than a few long-term plans for WWE, so just for fun, we decided to see how many of their current issues they could blame on The Guy. According to the Wrestling Observer, the biggest change caused by Reigns’ suspension was the fact that it ended up sending the WWE World Heavyweight Title to Smackdown, with Dean Ambrose as champion, instead of Raw, which was allegedly the original plan. Reigns and Seth Rollins were expected to feud over that title, while the Universal Championship was supposed to be introduced as a Smackdown-exclusive title, and most importantly, won by AJ Styles, likely in the match against John Cena which happened at SummerSlam anyway. In addition, a planned undercard match for SummerSlam was supposed to see Finn Balor fight Chris Jericho, as the two were expected to have an extended feud for Balor’s initial period following his promotion from NXT. Instead, as Reigns was removed from the Universal title picture, Balor was inserted, and ended up winning the title at SummerSlam…and seriously injuring his shoulder, putting him out for roughly 4-6 months.
We’re not one day out from SummerSlam and there’s already a problem, as new WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor is injured and will have to relinquish the title. How will WWE address the newly-created vacancy for the Raw brand’s main title? We’ve got all the results from the first Raw after SummerSlam right here!

Speaking at an event in New York recently, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon talked about WWE’s commitment to including LGBT characters and storylines into its programming in the future. In her statements, Stephanie certainly seems to say the right things, but is it real, or just a PR move?
