Edge & Christian Discuss WWE Replacing Kofi With Owens
Kevin Owens returned to in-ring action last week on SmackDown Live and replaced Kofi Kingston in the WWE Championship match against Daniel Bryan at Fastlane.
While fans are frustrated with WWE’s sudden change of plans, it appears the latest booking isn’t that bad either for reports suggest that Kingston will be facing Bryan at WrestleMania.
On E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, Edge and Christian explained how WWE made the right decision by having KO replace Kofi in the main event at Fastlane.
“I think it’s another twist and a play off of what we saw with Becky Lynch. It’s another good surprise because nobody was expecting to see Kevin Owens back. I think it’s to further build this organic KofiMania. It was interesting and I didn’t see it coming. It makes sense to extend the feud to Mania.”
“That way you don’t have to see it three pay-per-views in a row. I think it is awesome. It’s great because it injects Owens into it. Him and Bryan will have a great match. It also allows Kofi to go to Mania and get an amazing moment.”
Renee Young Addresses Rumors About Her Pregnancy
On Regular Girls podcast, WWE color commentator Renee Young addressed rumors about her pregnancy and how Hall Of Famer Mark Henry had made her aware about the word backstage during Elimination Chamber.
“Last week I was at TV at the pay-per-view, Elimination Chamber and my friend Mark Henry was there. He pulled me aside and said, ‘Hey I had to stick up for you the other day,’ I’m like, ‘Oh why?’ I just assume that somebody was like sh*t talking me saying I’m bad at commentary or blah, blah, blah. Okay so somebody said that I’m bad at my job, whatever, like get in line.”
“He goes, ‘No, no, nobody said that. My producer asked if you were pregnant.’ I was like, ‘What?! Come on?’ I don’t understand… well listen, I do understand, but like come on.”
“Am I wearing like loose-fitting clothes? Do I have a glow? I mean how many times have I had this conversation? Just because people are trying to will this upon me — I’m not sure.”
