Ronda Rousey’s Opponent At Elimination Chamber
WWE Elimination Chamber takes place on Sunday, February 17, 2019, at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Ruby Riott could be the potential opponent for RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at the upcoming PPV.
“I think that is the Elimination Chamber and that is the impression that I had before, and watching this kinda confirmed it. That you know it’s just a win for Ronda. Everyone knows it. Because of WrestleMania season. It’s just a match for the pay-per-view. Hopefully, they can work it out and hopefully Ruby Riott can get the rub from losing, so to speak. Sometimes it happens, often times when they say it, it’s bullsh*t, we’ll see how it works.”
Why The Revival Became The #1 Contenders On RAW
The Revival became the #1 Contenders for the RAW Tag Team Championship on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed the reason behind WWE granting Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson the ultimate title opportunity.
“The idea is they want to make the tag team division bigger and they don’t want those guys leaving. They’re not going to leave in a year plus so there’s no need to bury them this early.”
Alexa Bliss’ Babyface Turn
3-time RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss could be turning babyface, finally.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed that Ember Moon‘s absence has created a babyface void in the women’s locker room. With veteran Mickie James apparently turning babyface, it appears that The Goddess could be making a turn as well.
“Alexa Bliss was definitely positioned as a babyface tonight, yes.”
WWE Changes Names Of Two Superstars
After simplifying Andrade‘s name a couple of weeks ago, WWE has again changed the names of two more Superstars.
Heavy Machinery‘s Otis Dozovic and Tucker Knight will go by Otis and Tucker respectively from now on.
This change is quite similar to how WWE shortened (Luke) Harper and (Eric) Rowan‘s name on their debut as The Bludgeon Brothers.
