Keith Lee, not top WWE star to Vince McMahon.


Fans looking to see Keith Lee pushed to the top of the card may have to wait and there’s no guarantee that he will be more than a mid-card guy.

Ringside News reports that there is pushback behind-the-scenes on Lee.

The feeling from people in the company is that Lee is incredibly gifted and moves well for his size but Vince McMahon reportedly feels that there’s a certain spark missing with him.

One tenured writer reportedly stated to RSN that Lee’s promos have not caught fire but nobody is excelling with promos except for a few names such as Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Randy Orton, Edge, The Street Profits, and Lacey Evans.


It was noted several weeks ago that Lee was one of the names that were sent to get some more training at the Performance Center.

Lee was scheduled to wrestle for the United States Championship this Sunday’s WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view but there was nothing said about him this Monday on Raw and his status for the pay-per-view is still up in the air.



Backstage Story: Reason Vince McMahon ‘sacked’ Lars


Something similar happened in 2019 when Sullivan was about to start a feud with the returning John Cena.

There’s a lot of speculating going around on social media about Lars Sullivan’s release from WWE.

As noted earlier, Sullivan was quietly released last month and company officials confirmed the news today.

This comes after another attempt to push him as a monster. Sullivan was last seen in November in an interview segment on SmackDown.


The interview segment covered Sullivan’s early life to explain why he turned into a monster in WWE.

It was clear that they were adding layers to his character and he was going to be in the mix as one of the top heels of the brand.

In a post on the Wrestling Observer Forum, Dave Meltzer said that speculation about creative not having anything for Sullivan is not accurate.

Meltzer noted that Vince McMahon wanted to push him but he no showed TV.

Sullivan was supposed to attack Cena at the Royal Rumble to set up a WrestleMania match but the feud never got started because Sullivan flew home due to an anxiety attack.



Vince McMahon is no longer hot on WWE Superstars


WWE Champion Drew McIntyre was challenged to a title rematch by Dolph Ziggler, whilst Kairi Sane defeated Bayley in a singles match.

Randy Orton continued to re-establish his ‘Legend Killer’ status with a win over Big Show, before taking out the former World Heavyweight Champion with a punt kick.

Meanwhile, Seth Rollins was again victorious, days after defeating Rey Mysterio in an ‘Eye for an Eye’ match at the pay-per-view Extreme Rules.

The events that unfolded could spell bad news for his opponent Aleister Black, however, who suffered a kayfabe injured arm after a post-match beatdown from Rollins and Buddy Murphy.


Black enjoyed a strong push when Paul Heyman was an executive director of Raw, but Heyman’s dismissal last month has arrived with speculation that the Dutch-born wrestler’s prominent screen time may suffer.

According to NobleSport’s Adïï Noble, Vince McMahon has doubts over Black’s ability to carry a show, and also believes that there may be “something’s missing” from his skillset.

Colohue explained: “Things have really changed in the last couple of weeks for Aleister Black.

“Now Paul Heyman definitely loved him and Aleister Black was really the headline of the show for him. Every week, he would be having a half an hour match in the opening minutes.

“To my knowledge, it is Vince McMahon who has mixed opinions shall we say.


“Vince added that creek to the entrance when he leverages up and now he has removed the entrance all together. We haven’t seen the Aleister Black entrance in a long time.

“To put it bluntly, Vince thinks there’s something missing about Aleister Black. It’s similar to how he feels about Cesaro.

Cesaro has achieved mixed success with WWE himself. He formed a prominent tag team with Sheamus, starting in 2016 and winning the Raw Tag Team Championship four times, as well as the SmackDown Tag Team Championship once.

However, barring a single reign as the United States Champion, Cesaro has not repeated the success in the individual arena.

Black is yet to win a title since joining Raw in 2019, with the next few months perhaps set to give an indication about whether that statistic will change in the near future.

Tears From Vince Macmahon While He Portrays The Undertaker

Chapter 2 of ‘Undertaker: The Last Ride’ dropped on Sunday, giving fans insight into the 12 months that followed ‘Taker’s ‘retirement match’ vs Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33.


The episode covers Mark Calaway’s hip replacement surgery and also shows him battling to get back into shape to make his return against John Cena.

During the build-up to WrestleMania 34 where he faced the 16-time world champion, Undertaker met with Vince McMahon to discuss his WWE future, as his contract had expired.

Vince is also interviewed on camera for the documentary and spoke emotionally about the pair’s relationship.


“Undertaker – Mark Calaway – is the most loyal performer I’ve ever dealt with,” McMahon said.

“He’s the man you would want in the foxhole with you.”

The boss is then asked what Undertaker means to him personally and he starts to choke up, cutting the interview short.

“Can’t do that,” he says.
We rarely see McMahon share so much emotion and it’s clear just how much Calaway means to him on a personal level.

The feeling, of course, is mutual, with Undertaker revealing he’d ‘take a bullet’ for Vince in his own interview.


“I love Vince McMahon to death,” he said.

McMahon and Calaway have a special friendship
“I would take a bullet for the man – honestly, I would. Yes, he’s my boss. He’s my friend. He’s been like a dad. A brother. He’s been like it all to me.

“I can’t think of anybody more influential in my life, other than my father, than Vince.”

Given the incredible respect between the pair, it’s no surprise that Undertaker is yet to walk away from WWE.

Undertaker is yet to walk away from WWE
He was supposed to retire after facing Reigns in 2017 but refused to bow out after a match he described as ‘disgusting’.

Instead, Undertaker is still going strong. The bottom line is, if Vince needs him, he’ll be there.



See Vince McMahon And Triple H’s Reaction To Drew McIntyre’s WrestleMania Victory


WrestleMania 36 will live long in the memory for WWE fans… whether that be for good or bad.


Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, WWE were forced to stage ‘Mania behind closed doors for the first time in its history, and it’s safe to say it was a truly bizarre spectacle.

Not only was it behind closed doors for the first time ever, it was also spread over two nights for the first time ever too.

Saturday night saw some heroic moments like the Boneyard Match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles, whilst Sunday saw Edge return to competitive action for the first time in years.

However, the greatest moment of WrestleMania weekend for the majority of WWE fans was seeing Drew McIntyre reach the pinnacle of the company by defeating Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship.

After surviving an initial onslaught, the Scotsman turned the match on its head, and managed to successfully defeat The Beast Incarnate thanks to the prestigious Claymore Kick.

Seeing McIntyre dethrone Lesnar was what everyone wanted, so it’s a massive shame that there could be no audience for the moment, and it’s an even bigger shame for the wrestler himself that all of his peers weren’t backstage to enjoy the moment with him.

However, he has recently revealed what it was like backstage after his triumphant moment, and he’s discussed what it was like bumping into both Triple H and Vince McMahon with the title round his waist.

~Triple H

Whilst speaking to SportsKeeda, McIntyre said: “The backstage reaction was non-existent because of the setup there was nobody back there initially. So, it was kind of weird.

“But you know when I got to Mr. McMahon and Triple H and obviously, we had such minimal personnel there, the people who were there especially, the crew people who have watched me grow up, you know everybody was very happy and very proud.

~Drew McIntyre

“I think for Vince and Hunter themselves, they were just very happy to see that I have finally kind of grown up and realised the potential they had seen in me all those years ago.”



If Vince McMahon dies, WWE may not survive (Reason)

Vince McMahon will eventually die because he is human. Now his company doesn’t have a plan of who will run the company when that happens.

WWE axed their Co-Presidents this week in a very surprising move. Now fans and investors alike are waiting to see what WWE does next. WWE stock took a huge fall for a reason.

George Barrios and Michelle Wilson were liked within the company. They brought people into WWE who might leave the company to follow Barrios and Wilson to their next venture.

WWE could be in some trouble as well. Vince McMahon suddenly dismissing his Presidents left a huge hole in the company’s contingency plan as Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio.

“It’s gotta be something really serious for him to fire both people without notice with no succession plan and kinda killing the succession plan… because if something happened to Vince, you know everybody expected that Michelle Wilson and George Barrios would be the people to run the company. Now nobody knows who will run the company and that uncertainty is one of reasons the stock price dropped a lot.”

There are a lot of questions that need to be addressed very soon. WWE’s 2019 fourth quarter financial statement on Thursday will be very interesting. The manner in which investors’ questions are handled will be interesting as well because Barrios and Wilson would typically be a part of that to help spin things.
