Brock Lesnar Holding the Wrestlemania Main Event Hostage At This Point

It has been a wild 48 hours or so in the land of WWE as there may never be a road to Wrestlemania like this one. A fan movement by WWE fans to get more attention and time followed by A.J Lee and Stephanie McMahon engaged in twitter combat. Steph was reacting to something from the Oscars about women’s equality and it led to A.J Lee responding with thoughts on how that equality does not occur in WWE. Lee has been missing from WWE with an apparent neck injury. There is also a ton of baggage tied to her husband C.M Punk. Who recently has been sued by the WWE doctor he called out in his November podcast with Colt Cabana, who is also being sued.  WWE has come out in just support of their doctor who is suing Punk and Cabana for what was originally reported as one million dollars in damages but the figure has risen to two million in later reports in his defamation legal action.

Normally a drama like this would be big news but it is really just a side story after news and rumors that broke yesterday. Stephanie did respond to Lee on twitter thanking her for voicing her opinion.

The opinions on the Wrestlemania 31 main event have been many in the past months with Roman Reigns now locked in it would have appeared to face Brock Lesnar. The kickoff to building that main event should have got rolling in full effect this Monday on Raw. Brock Lesnar attended but apparently walked out and ended up not appearing on the show. There was a rumor going around this surrounded Lesnar not wanting to fight Reigns based on the fact he allegedly had failed a drug test. It seems this was more fiction than fact from what most are saying once this rumor hit the main stream on the internet. What everyone agrees is Brock did walk out and is not happy about something. Lesnar has been widely rumored to be considering a return to MMA once his contract ends after Wrestlemania.

Lesnar is not scheduled to appear on WWE television again until March 9 th and a second appearance on the Monday prior to Wrestlemania. There is now at least some doubt if Lesnar will actually be a part of things. Could the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion be a no show for Wrestlemania?

After all the drama and struggle to keep Roman Reigns in this main event to defeat Lesnar and be crowned the Champion and the unofficial future face of the company it might be Brock that is the biggest problem not Daniel Bryan and his fan base.

If Lesnar were to walk out on the WWE in the same way as C.M Punk did 13 months ago, it would literally turn Wrestlemania upside down with basically a month to go to the show. It would make sense that if Lesnar does not appear on television for the March 9 th appearance it would be huge cause for concern for the Wrestlemania main event and be at a critical stage. How long could the WWE go along without introducing a plan B to explain Lesnar’s being eliminated from the picture and the title he holds most likely being declared vacant.

This would be a last resort and could really put the WWE in a situation they have never faced. In the past big matches for Mania has been placed in state of jeopardy based on injury. Rock vs. Austin the final of the series of three had Austin in hospital the night prior. Kurt Angle was dealing with serious neck issues entering his match with Lesnar for the title when they faced off for the title.

What all of this says or at least implies is that Lesnar is not likely re-signing with the WWE and even if he shows up for Wrestlemania to say he will be easy to work with for an inexperienced Roman Reigns would be a fantasy most likely.

The drama behind the scenes heading into this Wrestlemania is becoming far more interesting than the card itself. This would be a terrible situation if the WWE could not produce the main event they have promised and basically pushed through despite fans not being on board with it. This could all be a great work to ensure Lesnar comes off as a heel in his match with Reigns but that is likely wishful thinking. Is it to late to book Triple H and Stephanie against Punk and A.J Lee as the main event? I joke but what they would have to come up with at this late stage would be far from ideal to say the least.

WWE Fastlane To Wrestlemania Re-Matches

WWE Fastlane seemed more like it was in the bicycle lane when all was said and done last night. There are so many challenges to trying to book a show sandwiched between the Rumble and Wrestlemania. It still is not an excuse for what we saw last night. It really was a show lacking any kind of real buzz to it. The way the card was booked was a mistake from the start in my opinion. We started with the new job squad as I have dubbed them Ziggler, Rowan and Ryback going against Kane, Big Show and Seth Rollins. This match meant little in grand scheme of things. It was based all about what happened at the end of the match with the return of Randy Orton. The match went to long and had the heels going over winning the match.

Orton’s return was fairly muted as it really was so expected to happen. Fans had been aware Orton had been back for a while working house shows but being kept off television. Orton is never really great as a baby face and the timing of his leaving to do a movie was unfortunate because fans at that time were ready to embrace Orton as a face. Now the moment has somewhat passed and we still have 35 more days to Wrestlemania. This feud was hot when Seth laid out Orton but they have waited to long and the buzz for it needs to be recreated.

The Goldust against Stardust match bombed on pretty much every level. The problem was obvious and crowd in the pre-show gave you the answer in how they reacted to Mizdow. Fans are hot to see the payoff for the Mizdow and Miz feud. The brothers Rhodes feud has been teased for a number of years and people have just lost interest. It was just the idea of having two programs with a similar storyline of a tag-team break-up that was an issue. Stardust and Goldust match was not received well and the finish the ref botched the three-count making the ending very anti-climatic on top of everything.

If you’re looking for a nugget for the hardcore internet fan base, they were given Tyson Kidd and Csearo won the tag belts against the Usos. It was a good match and was at list a minor surprise in the finish. Maybe it gets Kidd and Csearo on the pre-show in re-match with the Usos on the Mania Pre-Show.

The Bellas flat out suck and are killing the Divas division one program at a time. They can’t act and while people praise there improvement in the ring it is far less than people make it out to be. Nikki Bella was not able to sell pulling of the tights that I am not certain but likely is part of your first week in being a wrestling villain class. I suppose this sets table for yet another Wrestlemania re-match with Paige and Nikki if they choose to go there. As bad as build with Bellas was to this match, I am not sure I could survive another 5 weeks of it.

Dean Ambrose talked about as we wrote awhile back about the idea of him restoring the luster of the I-C title in the pre-show. He has his match resulting in getting a cheap disqualification and ends up stealing the title at the end of the match. Yet another re-match set up for Wrestlemania. The log for Wrestlemania 31 should have a rewind button of fast forward button instead of play. On paper, this is shaping up as the Wrestlemania of re-matches.

Another re-match which most everyone expected coming in will be John Cena taking on Rusev who cheated by low blowing Cena and having him pass out in his version of the Camel Clutch. It all builds to the big Wrestlemania Re-Match with Rusev. Like with Bray Wyatt it seems Cena will get the win at Wrestlemania where it means the most.

Speaking of Bray Wyatt, he made his intentions crystal clear on his Wrestlemania direction as he came out faking an entire Undertaker entrance. Crowd wasn’t happy to see Bray in the casket. A match with an aging Taker really is a no win situation. Fans don’t want to see Taker lose a second year in a row. While Wyatt really can’t afford to lose another big time as he did last year with Cena. The other unknown is what Taker has left in his tank. What is forgotten by the result of Lesnar winning is how horrible the match was between the two prior to the historic result.

The main event was exactly what I thought it would be. Daniel Bryan gave Roman Reigns a great match but Roman wins the match clean and keeps his main event spot with Lesnar for Wrestlemania. People might hate it but after caving to fan pressure last year, they really can’t afford to do it again this year. While fans might dictate what becomes of Roman Reigns in terms of being a heel or a face they can’t dictate his match as well. They have to draw a line in sand at some point that puts fans in their proper place. It is chaos if fans are allowed to control to much of the booking and direction of the show.

In the end if this is what Fastlane will be for the future I don’t see it having a long history and just is the latest failed new WWE special event name. It was a show that lived up to it’s free price tag as it offered nothing much worth paying to see it. Another example of where NXT did more to sell me on the WWE Network than the main roster product in a month of free programming.

Oh and in case your brain dead Sting is fighting Triple H. Over something that happened over 15 years ago that we are now suppose to care about? WCW vs WWE the Invasion 15 years to late how thrilling. In the end this is Wrestlemania that may offer more groans than cheers.

5 Things To Expect on WWE Monday Night Raw 2/23/15

How's it going folks? Now it's officially WrestleMania season. Last night was the WWE Fast Lane PPV on the WWE Network. We saw the return of Randy Orton, Stardust shine, Tyson Kidd & Cesaro are the new WWE Tag Team Champions, Sting vs Triple H is official for WrestleMania, Bray Wyatt finally challenges The Undertaker, Rusev BEATS John Cena and Roman Reing defeated Daniel Bryan and now will take on Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Despite the terrible crowd in Memphis I thought that last night show was a really effective PPV and it served the purpose of it's title name. Tonight Monday Night Raw is in Nashville and we'll have the fallout from the FastLane PPV. Brock Lesnar is advertised for tonight's show. We also heard that tonight a tag team will be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame. Will Undertaker respond to the Undertaker? Here's five things you can expect on tonight's WWE Monday Night WRAW!!!!!!!!

1.) Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns, Where does Daniel Bryan go next? 

It's official Brock Lesnar will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 31. I thought Reigns/Bryan had a really good match last night and unfortunately this main event will be underrated because of the fact that Roman Reigns is not Daniel Bryan. It's time to move on and the WWE will not change their mind and there will not be any triple threat matches at WrestleMania. I'm sorry Daniel Bryan fans, but they're not holding him back if they did he would have never been in the main event of last year WrestleMania and that was the Daniel Bryan sentimental WrestleMania moment. Tonight Brock Lesnar is on Raw and after Fast Lane was over Paul Heyman said on twitter that both he and the beast will address Reigns on Raw tonight. Heyman will sell this feud and the promo we'll he hear tonight will back up my claim. Here's the question. Do we see Reigns & Brock brawl or Will we see Brock & Roman just stare at each other? If Reigns does wrestle tonight I think we'll see him fight Luke Harper. As far as Daniel Bryan is concern I think we'll see Bryan come out and talk about what happen in the match and we'll find who's Bryan opponent for WrestleMania. Alot of people are calling for Sheamus at the same time a wild card could be Dolph Ziggler, but I'm very interested to see how the crowd reacts tonight towards both Bryan & Reigns, but I think they made the right decision with having Reigns win, but that's me. 

2.) The Viper is Back + Triple H/Sting 

Last night was a very interesting night for The Authority on all accounts. Rollins, Kane and Big Show defeated Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan in a pretty solid six-man tag team match. Randy Orton finally made his return to the WWE last night and Seth Rollins ran for his life and that was awesome. The Orton/Rollins storyline plays for itself to be honest with you and that should be a bad ass match at WrestleMania. As far as tonight is concern we could have a rematch from last night or you can do Big Show vs Dolph Ziggler and then Erick Rowan & Ryback vs Kane & Rollins. Either way I think we see Randy Orton come out and go after Rollins again, but we're five weeks away we need to have Orton talk and make this match official. The Authority could start off the show with a in-ring promo and Triple H could address Randy Orton, but man Triple H got his own issues he has to worry with tonight. I thought the Sting/HHH face-to-face last night at WWE Fast Lane was perfect and very effective segment. We're five weeks away I would like to think that you see Sting on Raw tonight and during one of these Raws we need to hear Sting talk and not have Triple H put words in his mouth. Sting needs to get himself over with the WWE Universe and maybe 30 % of the audience remembers Sting through the WWE Network and saw Sting not talk for a whole year. No words were spoken and maybe that's just good poetic justice, but at the same time Sting is not like The Undertaker in the WWE he needs to talk at least once. You can have Sting cut creepy video package promo's that get into the head of Triple H if you don't want to have him at the Raw's before WrestleMania. The match is official for WrestleMania and we'll hear Triple H's thoughts on Raw tonight. 

3.) John Cena/Rusev 

I thought the match with John Cena & Rusev far exceeded the expectations I had for this match and really caught me off guard that Rusev actually won and made John Cena pass out. I told James during last week's podcast that I expected Rusev to kick Cena in the nuts and would put him out in the accolade just saying. Anyways I thought they made the right decision if there was one main thing I took away from this show last night it was seeing Rusev become a bigger star and legitimate threat. You have to give credit both of these guys even if your not a John Cena fan these two guys put on a really really good match for the United States Championship. Rusev used a traditional heel tactis to retain the title that always gets brownie points with me and now how will John Cena respond to submitting to Rusev? You will probably see John blame Lana for costing him the title and that same time I'm thinking this match at WrestleMania and John just says he doesn't want to fight for the US Championship he just wants to beat Rusev's streak and kick Rusev's ass. Cena hasn't been wrestling on Raw consistenly for months now and I don't understand that, but if he does fight tonight he will probably take on Luke Harper or Curtis Axel or just anybody to have release his "ruthless agression". The match was way better than I thought it was going to be and it raises my optimisim for their upcoming match at WrestleMania.

4.) Bray Wyatt/The Undertaker 

Let me say this that Bray Wyatt promo was absolutely awesome probably my second favorite part of the show last night. We talk about career defining promo's from the Austin's 3:16 to CM Punk's Pipe Bomb Promo, it may not be to that scale as far being a main eventer of a company, but I think we saw Bray Wyatt's career defining promo last night when he called out The Undertaker for WrestleMania 31. Do we see Wyatt & Undertaker go face-to-face? Tonight you may see The Undertaker make his return to WWE tonight in Nashville. I can't wait for the build for this match and does this match need a hardcore element? I'm guessing this is going to be a Casket Match at WrestleMania, so you'll probably see Wyatt in matches and at the same time he'll bring a casket to the ring. You can see Wyatt cut promo's from grave yards yes it has been done before, but at the same time Wyatt is the king of current WWE storytelling and he can cut some awesome ass promo's from a graveyard. I can't wait to see what happens on the show tonight. 

5.) WrestleMania Mid-Card 

Dean Ambrose cost himself the Intercontinental Championship last night, we'll see what happens with him tonight maybe he takes on The Miz or Mizdow. Congrats go out to Tyson Kidd & Cesaro for winning the WWE Tag Team Championships. Do you think we get a rematch tonight? Or save it for WrestleMania? For tonight we can see maybe Tyson Kidd & Cesaro vs The New Day, The Ascension can take on The Usos which may set up a big four way for the Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania. Nikki Bella retain the Diva's Championship last night by heel tactis, if AJ Lee's is going to be at WrestleMania she needs to be on the show tonight. Something needs to click for the Diva's division or we will just see another Total Divas battle royal for WrestleMania which is unfortunate. I thought the WWE did good business for with Goldust/Stardust feud really thought Stardust/Cody broke out last night and can't wait to see what happens with them tonight. The mid-card could be great for Mania and we'll see what happens. What's cool about this Mania opposed to year's past this WrestleMania is a showcase for the current crop of stars. 

WWE advertised on that there will be new inductees for the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2015. There's rumors about The Bushwhackers and yet at the same time I'll throw this out there it could be either them, Demolition, The Dudley Boyz or Edge & Christian. Just a idea, but whoever gets the nod tonight we here at Condo On The Moon will like to congratulate this newest member in the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame. 

That's a wrap for this week's #RAW preview hope you guys enjoy it. You can follow me on Twitter @VoiceOfTruth94 and check my out show the Pro Wrestling Experience every Wednesdays from 10am-1pm CT on Love to hear from you guys. 

Enjoy RAW!

Kevin Owens Has Conquered NXT Faster Than Anyone Could Have Imagined

Kevin Steen was one of the top talents on the independent scene for years. He was often thought of as a guy that would never make it to the WWE simply based on his size. Kevin is never going to be confused with a bodybuilder. He has since arriving in NXT done a lot of work in terms of his body and has dropped some pounds and his arms are not looking like the Hulkster but are looking more buff. It was how Kevin connects with a crowd and what he can do in the ring at his size that makes him standout. The fact Kevin even got to the WWE was amazing and perhaps the success of Bray Wyatt helped open the door for him. Wyatt is another guy that will never win a body building competition but it his great psychology and in-ring work that has elevated him in the WWE system.

I don’t think the biggest Kevin Steen/Kevin Owens fan could have written a script better than what WWE has done with him. It has been an amazing ride and Kevin Owens is remarkably the NXT Champion as he won the belt in just his third match on the WWE Network as part of the NXT product. He has been build as an ass kicker that fights with a single motivation to make life better for his family. This is the true motivation for Kevin Steen as an actual person. It has been said many times the best wrestling characters our people just being themselves and turning up the volume. This is what they have done with Kevin taking his real life story as a man with two young children and a wife and wanting to provide a great life for them.

It would just be a natural assumption that Paul Lévesque aka Triple H has been or become a fan of what Kevin has to offer. The success of Sami Zayn likely is a contributing factor to how well things have gone for Kevin. Zayn has been a standout for the NXT brand from the start since he arrived on the scene in the last couple of years. He has been the MVP of that brand and likely more talented than many of the recent call-ups from NXT. The story of Zayn and Owens real friendship was used to build the feud that elevated Kevin to instant success in NXT and the brand’s champion. Triple H prior to the NXT event that crowned Owens as Champion said it would have been foolish to ignore the real life back-story between Zayn and Owens. It sure seems that Kevin has become fast friends with his boss Triple H and been given a tremendous push to start his career in WWE.

Kevin has been turned into an NXT version of Brock Lesnar in terms of his presentation. He is going out and mauling people not just winning matches but literally knocking people out. It fits with the merchandizing they have done Steen based on the initials of his character’s name KO aka Kevin Owens. 

It makes all the ringing of hands that fans of Steen had when he was going to WWE seemed silly now. Kevin has been treated like the big deal he was in Ring of Honor and the independents. I honestly don’t know how anyone could have any beef with what WWE has done with him to this point.

The fear will now shift to what happens when Kevin eventually makes his way to the main roster. There is a lot of worry for people like Sami Zayn, Charlotte and Adrian Neville who all seem on verge of heading to the main roster. We are still a ways off from worrying about Kevin jumping to that main roster and I would just suggest enjoying the here and now with Kevin. There is nothing to complain about right now. In terms of Kevin, there is zero to complain about right now.

Having had the chance to interview many of Kevin’s friends and colleagues, they all had confidence that Kevin would be a success. In speaking with people since there is a lot of just genuine happiness for how well things have gone for Kevin.

If I have learned, anything about Kevin is how much not just his fans but also many of the people he has shared a ring with love and respects him. It has been a dream like start for Kevin Owens in WWE and the man Kevin Steen is very deserving of it. 

Fight Owens Fight… something very easy to root for. Even if he is playing the bad guy as he said on the most recent NXT he has not told a lie about anything since arriving in WWE. He is really at his core someone that you can’t help but root for him to succeed.

5 Things To Expect On WWE Monday Night Raw 2/16/15

"Hey, hey, hey. What's going on here?" It's not time for save by the bell, but it's time for this week's Monday Night Raw Preview brought to you by Condo On The Moon's very own Joshua Lopez. It's the go-home show to the WWE Fast Lane PPV. Tensions continue rise as we down a hill to the last stop on the road to WrestleMania this Sunday. We've been on a roll with these previews as this columns are giving a unqiue perspective on the current WWE Creative Team and their plans for editions of Monday Night Raw. A lot of people try to find things to be mad or complain about, but here we take a look at the current storylines and if there's issues we try to turn those negativies to a positive. The American Dream Dusty Rhodes will be on the show and The Nature Boy will be on tonight's show as well. Here's five things to expect on tonight's Monday Night Raw.

1.) Daniel Bryan/Roman Reigns Fiasco 

I don't know about you guys, but I'm at the point where I could care less who wins the Daniel Bryan/Roman Reigns match. Here's a dose of reality, for those saying that the WWE holds Daniel Bryan back you don't know anything about wrestling. Little fun fact for you if a guy was being held back or buried why would WWE have Daniel Bryan compete in a title match in all of the 5 WrestleMania's he competed in. Roman Reigns is not ready, but at the end of the day who is? It's a lose lose situation for whatever type of wrestling fan you are. Don't get me wrong I like both guys and I enjoy the current storyline they're in it's the fans and the mood surrounding this feud that just gets me aggravated. People say that Daniel Bryan deserve his title run, but will people put their money where their mouth is when he's the main event of Mania and main eventing future Raw's and PPV's? Is the YES! Movement about the fans being part of the show or supporting Daniel Bryan for what he stands for? To me the YES! Chant is like the What? Chant. WWE has brought the anything you can know I could do better storyline back with Reigns & Bryan and for what it's worth it's been working so far. I enjoyed their tag team turmoil on SmackDown this past Friday night the fight they had with The Usos was awesome. Tonight will we see possibly Roman Reigns vs Kane, then Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show. You can also see Roman Reigns vs Kane & Big Show and Daniel Bryan vs Seth Rollins and J&J Security. Either way I tonight you will see Daniel Bryan seek his revenge on Roman Reigns for what happen on last week's Raw.

2.) John Cena & Rusev Program

I thought the WWE did a good job with the Rusev & John Cena storyline last week. I thought the video tribute Rusev gave to Cena last week was really funny and effective. I think what's helping this feud right now is not only because it's the perfect WWE esque storyline for both of these guys right now it's the fact that they're taking their time with this and not rushing anything. Last week on Raw we establish why this feud is happening and now it's about who will come out of Fast Lane as WWE United States Champion? Another cool thing with this feud if you will is that we don't really know what the long term plan is for both Cena & Rusev coming out of this feud. Can John Cena really become the US Champion on Sunday? Is this a one off feud? Can Cena put over Rusev? Tonight is going to be interesting because last week Rusev got the best of John Cena and his injured eye, now will the Cenation Leader get the best of the Bulgarian Brute. I think John Cena should take on Luke Harper tonight. Also what if any chance of us seeing the returning Celtic Warrior associate himself with this feud and get back the title he lost or possibly turn heel and go against the guy the left him off Team Cena at Survivor Series. I think tonight you'll probably see Rusev vs. Dolph Ziggler or Ryback.

3.) The Rhodes Family Debacle 

What's more tradition in wrestling new sites? The yearly Carlito & Shelton Benjamin apperance in the Royal Rumble? Or the Cody Rhodes vs Goldust match at WrestleMania? I think we may finally get it and what a perfect time for both of these guys. Reports are coming saying that Goldust will be hanging up the boots after Mania and what a way for him to go out against his younger brother at the grandest stage of them all. Will it be Stardust vs Goldust at FastLane then Cody Rhodes vs Goldust at WrestleMania? I'm really excited to see what goes down between The Rhodes Family on Raw tonight. I think we'll finally have a mid-card feud in-ring segments that's intruging and meaningful. What I think eventually happens is that Dusty will try to play to the crowd a little bit he'll introduce his sons and during the segment Dusty or Goldust will spit out the name Cody and either Stardust will attack Goldust to or knock down his dad and walk away.

4.) The Authority  

I found out that the legendary "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair will be on Monday Night Raw to talk to Triple H about his upcoming confrontation with the vigilante "Sting" at WWE Fast Lane. I think we'll probably see a opening in-ring promo with The Authority where they promote the ppv say it's free you know the usual The Authority stichk and then they'll address what happen on SmackDown with Big Show & Kane and also the Daniel Bryan & Roman Reigns situation. Wonder if this Authority storyline has brought unwaranted heat towards the company because let's say for the casual viewer who tunes into Raw and they see The Authority and people know that Triple H & Stephanie McMahon are actual authority figures it puts a black cloud on what we're watching because is this how they real feel about Daniel Bryan or it's a what's best for the storyline type of thing? Because you watch Raw and then you see The Authority constantly degrading Daniel Bryan and for those who are not die hard wrestling fans they can assume that's how the company feels about Bryan and the character's The Authority don't care about the fans. It's a double eged sword in this reality era, but in today's society people are so insecure and gulliable they see something on television it could be a random match on Raw and they'll believe it's a new storyline or this or that, so it's interesting to see where this Authority storyline goes and how its finishes. As far as tonight is concern I think we'll see the confrantation with Triple H & Flair and then it will be interrupted by a interesting video package from Sting that will get Triple H flustered before their confrantation at Fast Lane

5.) WWE Fast Lane Undercard 

We know that Nikki Bella will defend the WWE Diva's Championship against Paige. Tonight we'll probably see Paige vs. Brie Bella again or her against Alicia Fox and maybe this time we'll see Paige get the best of the Bella Twins. Hopefully tonight they announce that it will be The Usos vs. Tyson Kidd & Cesaro for the WWE Tag Team Championship. Will Dean Ambrose gets his opportunity at the Intercontinental Championship? I think we may also see Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan vs. Seth Rollins, Kane and Big Show at FastLane due to what happen on Raw last week. Something else maybe for the pre-show you can do a number one contender's match with The Ascension vs. The New Day vs. Miz & Mizdow. That's all I got it's realistic outlooks as to what can happen on the undercard for FastLane.
