Welcome to another version of the daily WWE Rumors Roundup, where we aim to bring the biggest rumors and updates from the world of sports entertainment. In today’s edition, we’ll take a look at some of the exciting stories revolving around top names like Drew McIntyre, GUNHER, and Braun Strowman.
The GUNHER Intercontinental Champion has been strongly booked since Triple H took over as creative head. However, the original plan was for him to be ‘buried’ on SmackDown and send him to NXT. In addition, we will also consider the great compliments attracted by Drew McIntyre backstage.
#3. Drew McIntyre Praised For His Work in WWE
PWInsider has reported that the former WWE champion is being praised for his commitment to the company. McIntyre worked to a packed schedule, despite the flu.
It’s a report that McIntyre felt unwell before the match against Karrion Kross at the Crown Jewel but refused to withdraw.
“There were quite a few people praising Drew McIntyre for his commitment to the company as he traveled from the US to Germany and Switzerland for the Smackdown shows, then to the Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, then the India to shoot the film is described as the “role” the company formed with Sony, then flew right back to the US to do the Smackdown taping, followed by a pair of live events, so he hit the road for several weeks straight for WWE related appearances.
The Scottish fighter has grown to become one of the most trusted superstars in WWE today. Not only does he continue to produce quality matches inside the ring but his attitude towards his work also shows how hardworking and dedicated he is.
#2. The heat behind the scenes on Braun Strowman
The monster of all monsters seems to have come into the spotlight of management following his comments against several wrestlers on Twitter. Fightful Select has stated that the heat on him is justifiable. While he is well behaved backstage, his social media comments are unpopular with some.
One who fights speak to call Strowman’s actions immature. The former Universal champion took to Twitter to mock the high-flying superstars, calling them ‘flip-flops’, saying ‘Giants and Monsters’ like him are better than minor superstars than. He has since deleted that Tweet, which may have been done in a jest.
#first. GUNHER has been ‘buried’ and returned to NXT
WrestleVotes has disclosure that former WWE President Vince McMahon is not a GUNHER fan. He was disgusted with the former NXT UK champion and wanted to ‘bury’ him before sending him back to NXT.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, they also revealed that GUNHER is now ‘safe’ as Triple H likes him and is a huge fan.
The report said that McMahon “was like wanting to legally bury him.” It’s surprising that McMahon doesn’t like GUNHER because the superstar has excelled at losing weight at the behest of Vince McMahon. Many superstars have really benefited from Triple H’s takeover and it looks like the IC Champion is one of them.
Poll: Are Braun Strowman’s comments immature?
