WWE has a lot going on and there are always popular topics of conversation backstage. We have learned that nobody really talked about the ratings, especially AEW’s viewership. They had a lot more pressing matters to discuss like a trip to Saudi Arabia for October 21st’s Crown Jewel event.
We exclusively reported that a big topic of conversation was actually how they are going to have a layover in London en route to Saudi Arabia where they have to take their carry-on bags off the plane for two hours only to get back on the same plane. A lot of people were also talking about how Becky Lynch is going to Raw and Charlotte Flair is going to SmackDown, and everything else that implies.
Ringside News was told that Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar’s segment from SmackDown last week was also fresh on their minds. “The other talk is the Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar angle from Friday and just how awesome it was.”
It seems that many within the company have acknowledged their Tribal Chief. There was no discussion of the ratings, something that Shane Helms also backed up in a tweet to refute the previous report.
As someone who was there, I didn’t hear one word spoken about it. Not a single word.
WWE Crown Jewel will cause a big travel situation and the roster will also have to spend a lot of time with each other. We will have to see what comes up in conversation during their time together in the air.
