You can expect a lot of changes to the WWE product over the next few months as the company goes back on the road.
As WrestlingNews.co previously reported, Vince McMahon is aware that the product is stale and the feeling with people in management is that a lot of the “good stuff” is being saved for the live crowds.
John Cena and Edge are expected back by next month to set up their respective matches for SummerSlam and The Bella Twins are getting ready to return and there has been talk of The Rock coming back in time for the Survivor Series. Becky Lynch was seen training at the Performance Center and it is believed that she will be returning soon.
WrestlingNews.co was told that there was some hope that The Rock would actually wrestle at Survivor Series. The reason why WWE wants The Rock on that show is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his debut. The Rock debuted in a traditional Survivor Series match in 1996.
Andrew Zarian from the Mat Men Podcast has also said that it’s expected that some good changes are coming for the product by the end of the year.
Another thing that fans can look forward to is the WWE Draft, currently scheduled for the end of August or early September. PWInsider reported that Karrion Kross and Bronson Reed were backstage at SmackDown on Friday night for dark matches.
The story on that, per PWI, is that Vince McMahon is looking at different talent to potentially move up to the main roster during the Draft and they are looking at NXT names to shake things up on the main roster.
Another thing that is on the horizon is the new look and sets for the TV shows. The aesthetic changes to Raw and SmackDown are expected once fans are back by next month.
