WWE had an idea for a big stunt for tonight’s steel cage match between Bobby Lashley and Omos but that idea was nixed.
WrestleVotes reports that an idea was pitched for a collapsing ring angle but it was squashed over the weekend. WWE has done this angle a few times in the past, most notably during a Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show match on a 2003 episode of SmackDown. They did it again during the Mark Henry vs. Big Show match at Vengeance in 2011. The last time they did the collapsing ring stunt was during a 2017 Raw match between Braun Strowman and Big Show.
WWE typically does this kind of angle when they don’t want the match to go to a finish. Since this was being considered, it would indicate that they have at least considered not having a finish for tonight’s steel cage match to protect both Omos and Lashley and perhaps, set up another rematch.
The Lashley/Omos match is the only thing announced for Raw, as of this writing.
Over the course of the past week, there was an idea for a collapsing ring angle during the cage match tonight on RAW w/ Omos & Lashley. I’ve heard that idea got squashed over the weekend. Good. It’s way overplayed.
