The wrestling world changes faster than the clock ticks to the next second. Every passing second brings with it a story that can be talked about or can make the news. WWE’s next big show SummerSlam, is a month away, but the company is leaving no stone unturned to make the penultimate show, Money In The Bank, a spectacle for the fans to remember.

With the show happening two days after the live crowd returns to the company’s weekly show, Vince and Co. kept people enthralled and engaged with every move. Rumors have started surfacing about some superstar’s plans for the SummerSlam along with other details, and so without letting them wait, let’s get down to things that may matter in the weeks to come.

Edge’s plans for SummerSlam

Edge takes on Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship, and there’s a chance that he would fail. Are you thinking about how did we predict the future? Well, Thanks to the reliable WrestleVotes.

WrestleVotes is a trustworthy name, and the tweet from them confirms that the company plans on a match between The Messiah vs The Ultimate Opportunist. SummerSlam is the place where fans will be in attendance like Money In The Bank, but the scale of events will be grandeur. Now that makes sense for two superstars who can put on a show like none other.

Big E’s plans after the draft

The New Day impacted the wrestling business, and Big E was the powerhouse of the group. According to WrestleVotes, rumors state that Big E may join his fellow New Day members but work as a singles performer.

It does look good hypothetically, but in essence, it takes away the value of Big E as a singles performer. He has done well for himself, so he needs his opportunity and not the one where his fellow team members are already working, and he seems like a second fiddle to his fellow team members.

New Opponent for Bobby Lashley

Daniel Bryan is missing action since his last match on SmackDown, and according to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The leader of the Yes Movement could return to challenge The All-Mighty. No word on if Brock Lesnar has signed with the company, but if he has, then there are no speculations at this time. If he does return, then a dream match between Lashley and Lesnar can take place. If not, the former Planet Champion is a superb choice.

Killian Dian not a Vince McMahon type of guy

Vince McMahon likes tall and bulky superstars, and it looks like the company may be back to its old hiring days. If this is true, then so will be this that Killian Dian never impressed the Chairman of the Board, according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Buddy Murphy and Aleister Black are two superstars that didn’t resonate with the boss, but Black’s debut on a rival company speaks otherwise. Andrade is another example of such an experience.

The reason behind Kevin Owens’ leave of absence

Kevin Owens tweeted that he was going away from the ring for some time. The opportunities presented themselves, and Owens is already a part of the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match.

According to Dave Meltzer, and courtesy of WrestleTalk, Kevin Owens’ time off was a storyline. It was short-lived as the former Universal Champion is back and in contention of a briefcase that secures an opportunity against the champion of his choice within the time frame of a year.
