– WWE has updated their preview for the Super Show-Down match with John Cena and Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens and Elias. Super Show-Down takes place on Saturday, October 6 from Australia.
We’ve noted how Owens “quit” on Monday’s RAW but that is just a storyline as he’s currently signed to a five-year deal. WWE’s updated preview includes the following teaser for Elias finding a replacement partner:
Cena teams with Lashley to go head-to-head against KO and Elias at the monumental event on Saturday, Oct. 6, marking the first time that these four Superstars have collectively shared the ring. While Cena and Owens look to reignite their storied rivalry, which culminated in a thrilling three-match series in 2015, Lashley and Elias no doubt have some unfinished business of their own, but how will these teams perform as a unit?
Cena and Lashley share a history as alumni of the Ruthless Aggression Era and are former Survivor Series teammates – they defeated five other Superstars in a Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Match back in 2006. With Lashley bent on taking care of “unfinished business,” can he and Cena pick up where they left off? As for Owens and Elias, KO revealed on the Aug. 27 edition of Raw that he “quits,” so it remains unknown at this time how that unexpected revelation will affect this scheduled match. Will Elias need to find a replacement?
– Gabe Sapolsky took to Twitter to shoot down any rumors of The Velveteen Dream being sent to work upcoming EVOLVE shows due to backstage heat over his “Vince Call Me Up” tights at WWE NXT “Takeover: Brooklyn IV” earlier this month. Dream is set to face Austin Theory at EVOLVE 112 on September 7 in Joppa, MD and then Darby Allin at EVOLVE 113 on September 8 in Queens.
Sapolsky wrote the following, noting that this will be a homecoming for Dream:
Let’s just kill this narrative now. Dream was requested by us because of his history at the MCW Arena in Joppa, MD. We wanted a homecoming. He was then asked to do Queens, to give the fans something special at La Boom. Dream was not “sent” by anyone, he agreed and wanted to.
This is WWE helping the independent wrestling scene. This is WWE, EVOLVE and Velveteen Dream giving fans a unique, memorable and exciting experience. This is what is good for our business. Thank you.
– Paul Heyman tweeted the following today on major brands “borrowing” his “Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat” tagline for Brock Lesnar in WWE. Heyman responded to a t-shirt advertisement from the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
It’s nice to know that almost 5 years since I said #EatSleepConquerRepeat as the mantra for @BrockLesnar on @WWE #RAW, major companies and teams like the @Buccaneers are still “borrowing” (blatantly stealing) the catchphrase. Send us our royalties, please! https://t.co/99LhF2SvBh
