Big Cass Suffers Knee Injury on “Raw”


Tonight on “Raw,” Big Cass and Enzo Amore competed in a “Brooklyn Street Fight.” However, things did not end well for the man who is ‘7 Foot Tall.”

According to a report from WWE.com:

Big Cass suffered an injury to his left knee during the Brooklyn Street Fight against Enzo Amore on Raw, WWE.com can confirm. The injury occurred after Amore dodged a big boot by pulling down the top rope, sending Cass to the floor in the process.

“It’s hard to tell what the extent of the injury is, but we’re going to send him to get an MRI tomorrow and figure that out,” said WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Robinson.

Last night at “SummerSlam,” Big Cass defeated Big Show in a match in which Enzo Amore was suspended above the ring in a shark cage.

We will continue to monitor this story and provide updates as they become available to us.

Editor’s Note:

You never want someone to get injured. However, if this had to happen to Cass, this might not be a bad time for it to happen. He can spend some time away, and when he returns, can be thrown immediately into a bigger feud. Either way, we hope that he gets well soon!

Main Event Announced for “No Mercy 2017”


It’s official. Last night at “Summerslam 2017”, it was made clear that Braun Strowman was coming for Brock Lesnar and the Universal Title. Lesnar retained the title and survived the onslaught, but it was obvious that Strowman was going to be a big deal in the very near future. It turns out that future is a lot closer than it seems.

As announced tonight on “Monday Night Raw”, Lesnar will defend the title against Strowman at the upcoming “No Mercy 2017” in the main event. The show takes place on September 24 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. This will be the first time that Strowman has had a one on one match for the Universal Title.

Here’s how it was all set up.

Opinion: Oh yeah this works. At the end of the day, this was the only possible match to go with coming out of “Summerslam”. Strowman manhandled Lesnar and wasn’t involved in the finish, making him look like the star of the match. There’s no reason to wait on this match and let Strowman cool off at all, so doing it at a B level show is more than fine. It’s likely going to steal the night and that’s the point of a main event.

Who do you think leaves with the title? If Strowman doesn’t beat Lesnar, who will? Let us know in the comments below.

Join the live coverage!

Monday Night Raw
Date: August 21, 2017
Location: Barclays Center, New York City, New York
Commentators: Michael Cole, Booker T., Corey Graves

With Summerslam behind us, it’s time to start heading towards No Mercy, which ultimately leads us to Survivor Series. The big story is a combination of Brock Lesnar retaining the Universal Title and Braun Strowman arriving as the new monster as he manhandled Lesnar last night. If that’s not a title program at some point in the near future, I have no idea where WWE’s head is. Let’s get to it.

Breaking News: NXT Women’s Champion Asuka Injured at NXT: ‘TakeOver Brooklyn III’


WWE.com has announced that NXT Women’s Champion Asuka has suffered an injury at NXT: ‘TakeOver Brooklyn III’ in her match against Ember Moon.

Asuka has reportedly not medically cleared after she broke her collarbone. According to Dr. Jeffrey Westerfield who evaluated The Empress of Tomorrow, an injury of this nature typically takes 6-8 weeks for recovery.

WWE would release the following explanation on their website:

“Due to the injury, The Empress of Tomorrow is not medically cleared to compete, and no official timetable has been given for her return. The typical recovery time for a broken collarbone is 6-8 weeks, according to ringside physician Dr. Jeffrey Westerfield, who tended to Asuka in Brooklyn.

“During the match, she landed awkwardly from a throw from Ember Moon and was able to complete the match, but had notable pain and discomfort,” Dr. Westerfield said. “We performed an initial ultrasound backstage that was highly suspicious of a break that was later confirmed by an X-ray.”

News of the injury comes as Asuka approaches the 507-day mark of her historic NXT Women’s Title reign. She has yet to be defeated in NXT since debuting in October 2015.”

It is unknown whether Asuka will be forced to relinquish the NXT Women’s Championship at this time, though we at Wrestling Rumors will continue to update you on this situation as it develops.

Editor’s Note:

This is so sad… A part of me hopes this is due to her making a surprise appearance on the Main Roster without ever being defeated, but I’d rather her streak end before she leaves NXT. I doubt with the taping system NXT uses that she will be forced to vacate the title, though this doesn’t look good for her.

Jim Ross Talks ‘SummerSlam,’ Mae Young Classic & His Comments on Joey Ryan


Jim Ross has released his latest blog talking about his thoughts on ‘SummerSlam,’ commentating the Mae Young Classic and comments he made about indie wrestler Joey Ryan.

Before we continue, if you’ve yet to see the parade for Mae Young Classic, we have featured it below and highly suggest you check it out. Jim Ross and Lita will be commentating this incredible tournament featuring 32 of the world’s strongest, talented females out there. Be sure to make your predictions in the comments below and via our social media as we do want to see who people believe will walk out victorious.

[This post contains video, click to play]

On commentating for an NXT ‘TakeOver: Brooklyn III’ match between Hideo Itami and Aleister Black:

“It was a blast to broadcast a live match with Mauro Ranallo as that seemed to be something that many fans wanted to experience, including me. Appreciate the hospitality and respect shown me by not  only Mauro but Nigel McGuiness and Percy Watson too. I thought the Aleister Back vs Hideo Itami bout that we broadcast was a helluva wrestling match and one that I really enjoyed being a part. Itami seems to be more at ease as a villain and Black could well be a huge star in the making much sooner than later for NXT and subsequently at the next level, too.  I love both men’s kicking game as you probably gathered if you watched the match.”

“There is a discernable, unique vibe at NXT events that I have personally experienced from working at two, NXT Takeover events, in Chicago and in Brooklyn.  The audience seemingly has made a strong emotional investment in the NXT talents and it shows.”

On watching ‘SummerSlam’ from home:

“Watched Summer Slam sunday night from my Norman, Oklahoma home and enjoyed it. Happy I invested the time to watch the pre game show and the main card even though the length of the overall presentation was a bit challenging in which to remain engaged for approximately 5+ hours. I enjoyed the submission finishers utilized at various times on the show and the overall effort of the talents. The physicality of the Fatal Fourway was off the charts and, as I predicted, Lesnar retaining was the right thing to do and it is obvious that many fans want a Lesnar vs Strowman bout somewhere in the foreseeable future….Wrestlemania? Much more on this matter on the Ross Report.”

On working with Lita on the Mae Young Classic:

“Lita and I voiced over 16 Mae Young Classic bouts Wednesday in a marathon production session that yielded some excellent results of which you can see and hear beginning Monday August 28 on the WWE Network. I have truly enjoyed working on this project and feel that we are collectively doing a good thing for all the women who have contributed to the genre and who have campaigned for simply better opportunities as it relates to their in ring careers. The first four Mae Young Classic shows will begin airing in succession Monday night August 28 and I hope that you will give these broadcasts a shot. As a wrestling fan, you will be happy that you did.”

On Jim Cornette:

“Congrats to @JimCornette for celebrating 35 yeas in the wrestling biz. Without question, JC is one of the absolute best to ever do his craft and is arguably at the top of a crowded list of marvelous managers who have graced the squared circle. Corney was also one of my favorite broadcast partners ever and I hope that he can help Impact Wrestling recapture their much needed mojo.”

On his comments at his NYC show about Joey Ryan:

“Funny how some folks go into business for themselves when interpreting comments that I make including those with Paul Heyman Friday night in NYC. We were asked a question about Joey Ryan who is a talented wrestler with a unique ‘gimmick’ that might not be for everyone. I have no issues with Joey Ryan on any thing as he is staying booked, he’s earning a living, he’s entertaining his audience and he’s apparently having fun with his unorthodox in ring presentation. Some wrestling websites need to be more creative on their attempt to create click bait.”

John Cena to Potentially Star in New Knight Rider Movie


According to a new article by PWInsider, 16 time WWE Champion John Cena is being eyed for a role in a comedic reboot of the Knight Rider franchise.

As a side note, Cena is also joining the cast of the upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee movie. It is due for release on 21 December of this year. For more information on that role, which we are sure he will excel at, we highly recommend watching the video below. It provides some background information on his role.

[This post contains video, click to play]

Based off a report by ScreenRant, PWInsider have explained that the comedic reboot by The Weinstein Company may see Cena and popular comedian Kevin Hart take the leading roles as Michael Knight and KITT respecitvely.

Cena’s character would be the protagonist formerly played by David Hasselhoff while Hart’s character is the voice of a futuristic super-car.

The idea is to reportedly have the reboot be an action comedy similar to that of 21 and 22 Jump Street. Wrestling Rumors will keep you up to date on if Cena does indeed get this role, though all signs point to yes.
