Source: Wrestling Observer Radio

– If it appears WWE Superstar Sasha Banks could very well be turning heel in the upcoming future. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio on Sunday night that the plan is for Sasha Banks to turn heel “fairly soon.”

He also noted that the Undertaker was “hurting real bad” and as expected, it’s his hip that is giving him problems. Taker has already had surgery on his hip but came back too quick and was in a great amount of pain backstage before even competing in the Royal Rumble.

Randy Orton Reflects On His Royal Rumble Win Last Sunday

– WWE Superstar Randy Orton recently participated in a interview with ESPN shortly after he won the 2017 Royal Rumble match this past Sunday, check out the highlights below:

His reaction to winning the Rumble:

“I’m still high off of that adrenaline. That feeling, that adrenaline rush — you can’t really experience that anywhere else aside from bungee jumping or jumping out of a plane.”

If he was hopeful about being selected to win:

“Very little is up to me and hope isn’t worth anything, as far as I’m concerned. Whether I’m given a match with X, Y or Z, or winning the Rumble or out first, it doesn’t matter. You are going to give your all. I think our locker room, everyone gives it their all. We are all working together to put on the best show you can.

“When you start hoping too much, you start believing your own hype, and the next thing you know, you can’t do that here or you’ll get buried and get kicked out of the door. You can’t change in the locker room if you are one of those guys. The attitude has to be on point here.”
