Kenny Omega Madness, Ending Wyatt vs. Strowman, Did WWE Go Too Far?, Edge Expected Back

What do you make of reports that Kenny Omega is set to be built as a singles star in AEW in year two?

It is pure madness regarding Kenny Omega and speculation about his standing in AEW. Omega has three years remaining on a talent-friendly contract that allows for him to compete outside of AEW and has him paid as one of their top stars. Yes, Omega has spent a lot of time building up AEW’s tag division but it does not mean the promotion does not have faith in him as a singles star. Omega is one of AEW’s top stars and he clearly had the option to go elsewhere. Some fans are too impatient and need to understand there is a vision for Omega, it is just not panning out exactly how they expect.

How long are you expecting for Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman to feud?

We are expecting WWE to blow-off the extended feud between WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt at SummerSlam next month. It has been a slow-burn that will continue with the non-title Wyatt Swamp Fight at WWE’s “The Horror Show at Extreme Rules” pay-per-view next week. Wyatt will likely compete as The Fiend and move into the fall with a new program. Since we are on the topic of SummerSlam, I spoke with someone in the company who said Vince McMahon was really hoping it was going to be one of the first shows outside of the WWE Performance Center. However, all hope of that is out due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to wreak havoc on everything. As we noted yesterday, WWE has had several cases.

What do you make of WWE incorporating Jeff Hardy’s past in his program with Sheamus?

The Jeff Hardy vs. Sheamus program on SmackDown has had its highs and lows but ultimately, it has paid off. I know addiction is not something that should be downplayed or intertwined into storylines but the best storylines are those that blur the line between contrived and real life. I could, however, have done without the urine angle that went along with Hardy vs. Sheamus.

Edge is 46 years-old and suffered a serious injury after his improbable return at Royal Rumble earlier this year. What’s next for him?

WWE expects Edge back and view him as a “quick healer” that will bounce back from the torn triceps injury he suffered at Backlash against Randy Orton. A neck injury forced Edge to end his career well before he was ready to hang it up and he is not going to let it happen again. He certainly wants to go out on his own terms. Edge is a grounded individual who is already on record as to stating he will “listen” to his body and will not return too soon. Those trying to say Edge tore his triceps because he “did too much too fast” should be ashamed of themselves. A triceps tear could happen to any Superstar and unfortunately, it happened to Edge. Was he rusty? Yes but the injury was an isolated incident that could have happened to anyone.
