The Authority Fires Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan
Just one week after returning to power, a Authority done a participation felt on Raw. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon hold a tongue-in-cheek appreciation night for John Cena before eventually banishment Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan for being partial of Cena’s group during Survivor Series.
Question on Everybody’s Mind: Where Is This Angle Going?
Prior to Survivor Series, Triple H vowed to glow Cena’s teammates if Team Authority came out on top. However, Ziggler eventually done a supernatural comeback, aided by a debuting Sting, to win and overcome a Authority, so it seemed as yet Ziggler, Ryback and Rowan were safe.
With Cena begrudgingly bringing a Authority behind to energy to forestall Seth Rollins from injuring Edge, though, Team Cena members are now out of a job.
Triple H and Stephanie done it unequivocally transparent that Cena was obliged for a firings. That adds a rather engaging dimension to Cena’s character, and it creates some doubt entering a Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Ziggler and Rowan figured to competition in a Rumble match, with Ziggler being a claimant to win. Ryback was building toward a intensity United States Championship compare opposite Rusev as well. Those things competence still happen, yet those Superstars aren’t in position to competition during a Royal Rumble currently.
Ring Rust Radio’s Take
While there are a few exceptions, banishment storylines are roughly always subpar unless those removing dismissed are indeed withdrawal a company. That clearly isn’t a box with Ziggler, Ryback and Rowan, that means it is usually a matter of time before they get reinstated.
The usually doubt relates to how it will happen. Cena could play a sufferer by sacrificing something to pierce them back, or a Authority could trade with a consummated contingent and get them to do a bidding.
Whatever a case, a lapse of Ziggler, Ryback and Rowan in a nearby destiny is inevitable. While it would be good to see WWE let this angle play out longer than it routinely would, it can’t means to be yet Ziggler in a Rumble match. It is already lacking star energy to some degree, and Ziggler is a transparent No. 3 choice behind Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns to win that contest. If he is out of a picture, afterwards a outcome becomes even some-more predictable.
Perhaps WWE will do something innovative, such as a legitimate Ziggler heel spin opposite Cena for his viewed selfishness, yet it’s some-more approaching that Cena will somehow come opposite as a favourite by removing his friends their jobs back.

Seth Rollins Added to John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar during Royal Rumble
It has prolonged been approaching that Brock Lesnar would urge a WWE World Heavyweight Championship opposite John Cena during a Royal Rumble pay-per-view, yet a new non-static was combined on Raw. The Authority announced that Seth Rollins will be partial of a hitch as well, creation it a Triple Threat compare with a pretension on a line.
Question on Everybody’s Mind: How Does This Change a Title Scene?
On a surface, Rollins being combined to a pretension compare competence not make a ton of sense. After all, he is already a Money in a Bank agreement holder, so he is radically double dipping.
Since Rollins is in position to have a universe pretension compare on his possess terms whenever he chooses, it doesn’t seem quite fascinating for him to go adult opposite a legitimate savage in Lesnar and one of a many successful Superstars of all time in Cena.
At a same time, it is distinct because Triple H would do this from a storyline perspective. Cena is his No. 1 rivalry during a moment, and it usually so happens that Cena is during contingency with Lesnar and Rollins as well. With that in mind, Lesnar and Rollins could feasible group adult to take out Cena and forestall him from winning a championship.
Rollins and Lesnar are also clearly on a same page after Lesnar helped Rollins kick Cena in a steel enclosure compare recently. In that respect, this is a vital pierce by a Authority.
Ring Rust Radio’s Take
Perhaps a biggest box for Rollins being extrinsic into this compare is a fact that it is something opposite that should supplement to a in-ring excitement.
After already observant Lesnar vs. Cena during both SummerSlam and Night of Champions, a gleam is flattering most left from that one-on-one encounter. Rollins adds an engaging wrinkle, though, and he also happens to be one of a best in-ring workers in a world, that should make this a some-more interesting compare than it differently would have been.
Rollins being in this compare also creates it bit reduction predictable. His further creates it seem some-more approaching that Cena competence win than it was previously, given Lesnar doesn’t have to take a tumble to remove a title. Also, Rollins is still in possession of a Money in a Bank briefcase, so he can income in on a leader even if he loses a match.
It is a protected gamble that Rollins will take a fall, given WWE will wish to keep both Lesnar and Cena looking strong. Lesnar should still be adored to win a match, yet Rollins unequivocally complicates things to some degree.

RRR Interview with TNA’s Dixie Carter
This was a outrageous week for TNA, as it noted a company’s lapse to radio and entrance on Destination America. The initial partial of Impact on a new channel aired Wednesday, yet before it did, TNA boss Dixie Carter was kind adequate to join Ring Rust Radio and plead a new instruction her association is taking.
Question on Everybody’s Mind: What’s Next for TNA?
There was a good understanding of doubt surrounding TNA nearby a finish of a reign on Spike. Having a radio understanding is apparently peerless for any wrestling association to have success, and TNA was means to attorney a new one with Destination America. While that channel competence not have vital name recognition, Carter views it as an glorious fit for TNA:
Well, we consider it is vicious for a company. We were in a position where in negotiations we went to each network saying, ‘Look, we are not meddlesome in usually chartering a two-hour uncover Impact for your network. we am meddlesome in a partner, someone who will assistance build a brand, give us some-more exposure, yield new programming for us,’ and that’s accurately what we have gotten and some-more with a support of Discovery and Destination America.
We are very, unequivocally vehement about all that they are giving us opposite all 10 Discovery networks—support, imitation advertising, PR, radio, digital. It is all we had hoped it would be.
Impact competence not be seen by as many people as it was previously, given Destination America isn’t accessible in as many homes as Spike, yet it is already transparent that TNA’s new home is committed to creation it a success. It even authorised Impact to run 5 mins over a scheduled container Wednesday, that is something that never would have happened previously.
Ring Rust Radio’s Take
In further to TNA’s pierce to Destination America, other changes competence also be on a horizon. Lockdown, that has traditionally been a pay-per-view, will instead be presented on giveaway television. Despite that, Carter suggested that pay-per-view will still be a partial of TNA’s business indication relocating forward.
We will still have several live [pay-per-views] a year, yet when we have them, they will meant something and be value people’s hard-earned money.
I consider that a artistic group unequivocally wanted to start a year off with a crash and something special on a network. So we motionless to take a Lockdown thesis live and giveaway on Destination America. we was understanding of that, and we will have a integrate of live pay-per-views a year. Then, we will still do some of a One Night Only specials that have been unequivocally successful for us.
Downsizing a pay-per-view report is approaching a intelligent pierce on TNA’s part, given it no longer has to penetrate income into what competence not be a remunerative enterprise. If it instead builds toward a integrate of large events per year, such as Bound For Glory and Slammiversary, it is distant some-more approaching to get fans to compensate for those shows.
It stays to be seen how TNA will transport in a new surroundings, yet Dixie seems to have a prophesy for what she wants, and there is positively renewed hum surrounding a product interjection to a reboot.
