On this week's Monday Night Raw, the 'Samoan Submission Machine' had something of a glint in his eye as he announced that the planned summit between himself and Roman Reigns had to be cancelled. Much like his aggression towards the 'Big Dog' during a Raw Reunion pull-apart and match the prior week, Joe's key to actually winning an important match for once lay in lulling Reigns into a false sense of security.
On SmackDown Live, all he had to do was lull him into the right spot.
The former Universal Champion was left flattened by some backstage equipment thanks - so we were led to believe - to a mystery assailant. The calculated attack took place as Roman headed over to be Kayla Braxton's guest at this time - he took a truss to the mush before he got the chance to announce his SummerSlam opponent in the main event segment of the penultimate SmackDown Live before the 'Biggest Party Of The Summer'.
But - and in merely asking this question WWE have managed to achieve everything they wanted from what was surely a last minute rewrite stall - Whodunnit?!
We Need To Talk About Kevin (Nash).
Michael can be found in articles or on podcasts extolling the virtues of New Generation WWF, New Japan Pro Wrestling or the new WWE angle they definitely definitely won’t ruin this time.
Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
