Welcome to the Blog of Doom daily thread, now being simulcast on TruthTV! Some fun news and notes to discuss:
- PW Insider reports that there was discussion about possibly bringing Brock Lesnar in this week for Raw. Obviously, that didn’t happen; there is no timetable for his next Raw appearance.
- Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that his sources tell him Sasha Banks is out due to an undisclosed medical issue.
- The original plan in 2017 was for Dean Ambrose to be the one to turn heel on the Shield. Injuries derailed that idea… although seeds are being sown right now, right?
- According to the Observer, the Shield six-man to close out Raw got high marks from Vince himself, a good sign for a potential AOP push.
