Real Reason For Undertaker At WrestleMania! WWE Raw Review! WWE Talent LEAVING?! | WrestleTalk News

The real reason Undertaker is working WrestleMania. Could another WWE talent be winding down their
work for the company? And all the biggest news from last night’s
Raw! Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk Super
Review-News, I’m Oli Davis. And to kick things off, here’s the 17th
February January, 2020 episode of Monday Night Raw… in about 5 minutes! The show opened FROM OUTTA the success of
last week’s Matt Hardy and Randy Orton segment. That was reportedly supposed to be Matt’s
farewell from the company, but it did so well in the ratings, WWE booked Hardy for one last
go in a No Holds Barred match tonight… that they never had any intention of delivering. Instead, Hardy came out in a neck brace saying
he’s not medically cleared to compete after Orton’s ConChairTo last Monday. Randy said he loves Edge like a brother and
walked out, showing how he’s wrestling with his own guilty, complex charac-oh no wait,
he’s hitting a ConChairTo on the steel steps this time. Twice. Randy’s performance is so compelling right
now. Despite being a psychotic heel in every segment,
he still seems partly conflicted by his actions. Unfortunately, WWE showed no such remorse. Advertising a Hardy vs Orton No Holds Barred
match would’ve been a major selling point for people tuning in at home, and actually
buying tickets for the live show. Not delivering it is a carny move, and is
the exact sort of broken promises that chip away at audience trust over time – cutting
your viewership by a third in just five years. The immovable ginger beard took on the Unstoppable
Leg next, as Aleister Black faced arguably his most competitive main roster opponent
so far: Rowan. It took two Black Masses for Aleister to pick
up an actually substantial win for a change. It just sucks for Rowan, who had one of the
best character reinventions in the company last Summer. Charlotte Flair recapped her NXT TakeOver
takeover the previous night, where she accepted Rhea Ripley’s WrestleManiaaar match because
the NXT wrestlers these days are so entitled, with their German suplex no-sells and too
many kick outs. In one of the worst told stories in WWE, Mojojo
Rawley’s henchman of two weeks, Riddick Moss, stole a roll up pin to retain the 24/7
title. The most over thing in this match was John
Cena, because R-Truth did the 5 Knuckle Shuffle, and he wasn’t even there. Or was he-
It’s time to play everyone’s favourite game! Where’s the WrestleMania sign? It’s there. Drew McIntyre’s pointing right at it. Paul Heyman interrupted teasing a Brock Lesnar
entrance, but for the first time this year, he actually wasn’t. Instead, Heyman introduced WWE’s newest
backstage producer, MVP, for a glorified squash match. Becky Lynch came down to the ring holding
a brown paper bag – hey, that’s Rowan’s thing – when it actually turned out to be
full of money. But not as much as the male roster members. Take that, Gender Pay Gap, I roasted you,
society! I roasted you!
Lynch said the money is for the fine she’ll get when she beats up Actual Cannibal Shayna
Baszler, when Shayna interrupted on the screen to say she’s going to “tear the s-word
out of” Becky once she’s won Elimination Chamber. Ooo, swearword, and also Baszler framing the
Chamber as home turf due to her cage fighting background is a genius bit of context. Bobby Lashley and Angel Garza vs Rusev and
Humbero Carillo was a really fun match next, with Garza and Carillo lucharing awesomely
together, and Rusev still being mega over with the crowd despite WWE’s best efforts. But, of course, Rusev took another loss. And the absence of Liv Morgan implies WWE’s
so-called sensitive portrayal of LGBTQ+ storylines was actually just a shock titaliation tactic
they never had any plans for. Following Asuka giving Natalya a black eye
in their match two weeks ago, Kairi Sane had a neatly modern style match with her here,
which she won thanks to Asuka interference. Seth Rollins hosted a sermon in the ring in
full cult leader mode. He’s growing out his beard. He’s growing out his man bun. He wears one evil glove and a furry black
jacket. Seth das UBER HEEL! He said it’s now time for Phase II of the
Triple H Cinematic Universe, where those who can’t be rehabilitated will be eradicated
hashtag join Dark Order. The copy and paste babyface interference followed
and Caruso alert! We’re getting a Kevin Owens and the Viking
Raiders vs AOP and Murphy main event. AJ Styles made his return from injury next,
promising he’ll win the Tuwaiq Trophy to then never speak of it again, so prestigious,
calling himself the new Mr WrestleMania, and then teasing a number of legend opponents
for biggest show of the year: including The Undertaker, more on that in Laurie’s news
in a bit. This brought out Ricochet to say he’s earned
his title match against Lesnar, which if he just believes in himself enough, he’ll win. Nobody buys it, so WWE tried to convince you
otherwise with Ricochet… winning a competitive match against the guy who always takes the
pin in OC matches, Karl Anderson. Caruso Alert! Liv Morgan cut a very awkwardly scripted promo
about getting revenge on Ruby Riott, and then put over the Chamber – which WWE actually
did a very good job of building up throughout the show. And then it was time for the latest combination
of Owens and the Viking Raiders vs Murphy and AOP! Again, I’m not complaining – I love this
feud and the matches they put on – but WWE have left themselves massively open to accusations
of repetitiveness. This time, KO had Murphy beat with a Stunner,
but Seth caused the DQ for the save – furthering the storyline that Buddy can’t win without
Rollins’ help. Seth was about to crucify Owens, but the Street
Profits ran down for an excellent babyface save, with a huge shoulder tackle from Dawkins
on Murphy, and an enormous Frog Splash from Ford. Unfortunately, those very same babyfaces didn’t
care when Matt Hardy was murdered at the start of the show, as Bryan Alvarez so eloquently
put it: WHERE WERE ALL YOU BABYFACES WHEN POOR MATT HARDY WAS BEING KILLED TO DEATH? That was this week’s Raw in about 5 minutes. Do you think the main event scene is getting
repetitive? Let me know in the comments because I’ll
be replying FROM OUTTA NOWHERE! And click the i above my head to let me know
what you thought of the show, where you can choose from Rawsome, Cor, AvRAWge, Poor, and
Rawful. While this was an enjoyable episode, it’s
nowhere near the quality of the last few weeks. And not putting on Orton vs Hardy left a bad
taste in my mouth. This week’s Raw is AvRAWge. Who’s got two thumbs up and likes to thumbs
up? You do! You, the viewer. So not only have a thumbs up party to help
the performance of the video, but also get yourself a Dance Chopper t-shirt! Then he’ll do the thumbs up dance for me
forever. Ha… ha… Dance Chopper… Dance
You’ve gotta stop telling Chopper to Dance. He’s a strong independent Chopper. But he loves to dance. Choppers love to dance. Yeah, but you’re making it weird. I’m not making it weird, don’t be ridiculous. Dance Chopper. Have fun with the news! Thanks Oli. Time for the news now. And you may remember the news from last week
that one of the matches slated for WrestleMania Thirty Sea Dog would see the Undertaker take
on AJ Styles. Now are reporting that the
Undertaker requested to work with AJ at Mania because he feels Styles is the “modern day
Shawn MIchaels”. High praise indeed, depending on which era
of Michaels we’re talking about, hopefully early noughties humble Shawn and not Montreal
Screwjob ego monster Michaels. It seems like WWE are leaning into this comparison
too as AJ’s promo on last night’s Raw saw him referred to as the new Mr WrestleMania
and name drop the Undertaker, plus a bunch of other legends he could hang in the ring
with. Obviously, AJ vs The Undertaker is an absolute
dream match and if it can reach the heady heights of Michaels/Taker from Mania 25, preferably
without the bit where the Undertaker attempts to dive into the centre of the earth, that
would be aces. are also saying though that
AJ won’t be the last ride for Undertaker, because when does that man actually retire? WWE could be lining up something big for him
at Survivor Series this year, the 30th Anniversary of his debut in the company. That feels like a fitting time to bow out
if you ask me. Speaking of bowing out. Job loss segway. WWE is might currently be witnessing a bit
of an exodus from its, for want of a better term “talking department”. After NXT, WWE Now host and beautiful angel
Cathy Kelly announced that she would be stepping away from the company following TakeOver Portland,
another member of WWE’s hosting staff also seems like he might be on the way out. Former Raw colour commentator Vic Joseph revealed
on Instagram that he will be working with NBA TV for the second half of the season. This isn’t hard confirmation that Joseph
is done with WWE, or even how big his role within the NBA coverage will be as his own
posts says he will be a “small part” of NBATV. So there’s definitely the chance that WWE
duties and NBA could co-inside, depending on what sort of contract Vic has with WWE
and how exclusive it is. WrestlingInc confirmed that Joseph is still
part of WWE, but he was last seen on live television on January 20th before the Raw
commentary team got switched to Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton and Jerry Lawler – which was
Vince McMahon big leaguing Paul Heyman. Joseph has not really had the time to bed
in on a specific brand, as commentary teams seem to get shuffled around him quite often,
and usually he ends up replaced by Tom Phillips as has been the case on Raw, 205 Live and
NXT UK. So that leaves us wondering, even if there
is space for Joseph to do both NBA and WWE, where would he fit in on a commentary team? As a lifelong Cleveland sports fan, maybe
working with the NBA will be a more fulfilling experience. Speaking of seeking more fulfilling experiences,
that is what Shelton Benjamin has not done. The star revealed on Lillian Garcia’s Chasing
Glory podcast that he has signed a new multi-year deal with WWE, though a specific length wasn’t
given. As Shelton is 44 right now, and that WWE have
been signing most people to five year deals right now, this could mean that Benjamin retires
with the company. Though you would be forgiven for thinking
he was already retired as he has barely been featured on WWE TV in the last year, though
he did get dumped out of the Rumble by Brock Lesnar after thinking he was genuinely friends
with The Beast. Frankly Shelton has not really been billed
as a big time player since his Tag Title run with Chad Gable. The only person to come off worse since then
is Gable! —– Thank you for watching, if you liked the video

  1. OLI: Do you think the main event scene is getting repetitive? Let me know in the comments…
    Real Reason For Undertaker At WrestleMania – 7:59 / WWE Talent Leaving? – 9:30 / WWE Raw Review – 0:28

  2. I would still be a fan of the WWE but I'm not because all they freaking do is the same matches every night every day every week every year so they all suck specialty Seth Rollins that punk ass beeotch can't wrestle his way out of a wet paper bag

  3. Matt is going to be back in a wheel chair next week and Randy is going to attack him again. WWE is turning Matt into Broken Matt as his build for his AEW debut

  4. This is how stupid wwe and wrestle talk is they don't knw hw a show is to b… omg it's the same shit on tv over and over …….

  5. Seeing the undertaker versus AJ styles would be great, I hate how the WWE treated Matt like that, not to mention MVP is not showing anything positive either but seeing Kairi Sane win was great, I love her.

  6. What I lowkey want to see is Seth slowly turning babyfaces into his own cult like group and end up having half the roster in his palm while the other half try to fight his power.. and maybe his power goes to other brands as well

  7. I 100% think itโ€™s getting repetitive. I donโ€™t feel like I need to watch raw cause itโ€™s the same every week. Love wrestle talk.

  8. Black vs Rowan was a match that should've happened much later it was too early for any of them to lose, but a grea match nonetheless i just hope it doesn't ruins Rowan's push

  9. Whoa, whoa, "American sports are weird"? If you want to bash on the NFL, ok I get it, American Football is well, only in America. BUT BASKETBALL? Come on man! The NBA is watched worldwide. Basketball as a sport is played professionally all over the world. Heel move on your part Laurie Blake. I was in on the thumbs up party, but… and I hate to do this, but you made me do it. THUMBS DOWN. ๐Ÿ‘Ž

  10. If you watched the video edited RAW on Hulu you saw the richochet and Rollins matches in 2 hrs of programming. Pretty bad.

  11. Glad im not the only who thinks the rollins vs owens faction war is getting stale. I love the dynamics and Seth's gimmick but its time to move on to other fueds or hopefully they add more disciples

  12. I wish they gave Matt a real chance back in WWE. Gave him control of his creative a bit, give him a good run to show how valuable he can be, build him as a legit legend, not as a filler name. Then move him to a creative role with the company/performance center promo and character training. And have him around for the occasional big return angle at big shows. If not, I hope he does that exact thing with AEW. He's hugely valuable

  13. Broken promises. How dare they… ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿค”โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโšฝ๐Ÿ‘

  14. Matt Hardy must have told Vince that hes done with the WWE so Vince is burying him as far under ground as possible. Matt Hardy to Dark Order CONFIRMED

  15. you asked for comments about RAW being repetitive? i havent watched either show in years, i prefer to watch Wrestle Talk on youtube reviewing the shows. thats how bad WWE has been.

  16. Love Becky's jacket. Her arm sleeve showing everyone shes defeated. I do wish shed go back to her shirt and shorts for ring gear tho. Liked that look.

  17. Honestly Reporting wwe anything makes this good program a slight bore because let's Face It WWE is a RUBBISH Show . In every way til Sunday .. Writers / Talent bookings & Character roles . They bury everyone from TNA , WCW because of Competition Companys .. & The McManhons will burn it to the ground before they let a outsider ( Triple H , Paul Heymon ) take control of Programming & Storylines … 60 days without wwe I will Vote for Wrestle Talk on the Emmy awards ..

  18. 2:55 killed me! Well played, Oli. Plus, "Huh, titillation." ๐Ÿคฃ

    Yeah, main event is repetitive, but WWE seems afraid to try to build on anything by adding a new storyline and fans get bored quickly. Gotta keep it fresh like anything.

    Now, dance, chopper. Dance!

  19. Repetitive is an understatement. But the problem is Vince. Maybe if there was a change in the way he thinks ( that he knows what the universe wants) then maybe it becomes under more control by say Heyman or a collective of people..

  20. See the problem I have with Becky & Shana segment is that now if feels like Shana is definitely winning at Elimination chamber because of this fued. Just as they have done with the Charlotte, Rhea Riple & Bianca Belair before NXT takeover.

  21. Outside of a small few good matches/segments, WWE is getting VERY repetitive. We are getting what seems like the same matches week after week and even storylines are being recycled from years ago. It just feels like WWE Creative are taking old storylines, dusting them off, making minor cosmetic changes, and then releasing them on TV figuring no one will notice. We do.

  22. I am glad Vic Joseph is not commentating. He is a Michsel Cole clone. One Michael Cole is enough. If Vic Joseph wants to commentate he replaces Cole on Smackdown. Cole gets a break and csn be involved backstage.

  23. The phenom vs the phenomenal one…
    Could literally be Takers best match but also due to his age… He might not be at his best…
    But if some how some way we can get Taker at his best… It could be he and AJs best match and one of the best in WWE history.

  24. Cathy Kelly is luscious eye candy, too bad she has to go… I love Charli Caruso who is even more of a hottie, but they should fire the fool doing her makeup these last few weeks

  25. Go watch that Shelton Benjamin interview. Very good and gives background to how wrestlers cope in the wrestling industry.
