WWE and wrestling, in general, is abuzz through the year. It used to be Vince and Co. in the past, but there’s a new player in the game, and they are steadily making progress. All Elite Wrestling continues to wow fans and creates something substantial. Fans can be rest assured that they will not witness rematches. This up-and-coming company’s weekly episodic television shows are doing way better than the longest-running weekly episodic show in television history.

While this is not just the cause of concern, the other factors hamper WWE’s performance and image. WWE is in the news for the good, bad, and downright ugly, and this week was no different. Ric Flair’s situation put the company in a bad light while repeated matches felt wrong, but Big E‘s WWE title win is the only good aspect from the last week in the WWE. The win stirred a rumor pedestal, but we will look at the factual details regarding this situation and others. So without further ado, let’s get down to it:

Vince McMahon impressed with Von Wagner

Cal Bloom, who goes by the in-ring name Von Wagner and is the son of former AWA/WWE/WCW star Wayne Bloom has received acclaim backstage. The second-generation superstar is praised for his work after his appearance during an episode of Friday Night SmackDown in April 2020.

According to WrestlingNews.Co’s exclusive report, Von has turned heads with his work and created new fans backstage. Vince McMahon is one person who is hard to impress, but Von has impressed The Chairman of the Board. Perceived as the next Edge, Wagner must consider it a compliment for an up-and-coming wrestler who is still trying to make his mark inside the squared circle.

Backstage Reaction to Big E’s WWE Title Win

It’s a New Day, Yes it is. Big E stayed true to the words that he spoke during The New Day’s entrance. They were ‘Don’t you dare be sour, clap for your champions and feel the power.’ The former Intercontinental Champion stayed true to his words and made The Almighty feel his power. His WWE title win changed the mood backstage as wrestlers were motivated after this win.

According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, wrestlers were excited after Big E’s win. He is a locker room favorite. His win is considered the first step in the right direction. The fans were happy, and this point from Mike confirms that the WWE superstars were feeling the same emotions. No wonder how a physically dominant person can move so many hearts.

Johnny Wrestling’s contract may be over soon

Johnny Gargano plays a vital role in NXT, but it looks like things may change soon. According to Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, Johnny TakeOver’s WWE contract could be up sooner than expected. It comes as no surprise that wrestler’s contract information is out in public. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn’s contract are also expiring soon, so one would have to see what WWE does next.

Johnny is an exceptional performer, and he commands the action between the ropes. If he decides to step away from the WWE, it will blow the third brand. Johnny is involved in a storyline with Dexter Lumis, and it doesn’t seem to end soon. With Indy and Dexter now a couple, we would have to see how he plays the cards, especially since Candice is pregnant and can’t be a part of the action in her original capacity. Losing Johnny to the nemesis will cost WWE more than they could invest in repairing things, so it is better to prevent and prepare rather than repent and repair.

Bobby Lashley’s new plans post WWE title reign revealed

The Almighty losing the WWE championship may be the first step in the right direction. It opens avenues for Drew McIntyre to try and win the WWE championship from the new champion. It also helps other superstars to rise to the challenge. Big E is a dominant champion, and we would see him in quality storylines, but what about Bobby Lashley?

If this is going through your mind, we can report through CageSideSeats that WWE plans to bring The Hurt Business together. It is undeniable that the group is dominant as the previous performance of the group speaks for itself. Fans were annoyed when WWE abruptly removed Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander from The Hurt Business following WrestleMania. The return of two talented superstars to form a dominant faction will help them face The New Day in the coming weeks and months. Will it be best for business? Well, your guess is as good as ours.
