Do you see Seth Rollins getting in major trouble following the nude photo scandal?
Triple H addressed the Seth Rollins controversy in a conference call on Tuesday. He said it was a “Colby Lopez (Rollins’ real name) situation” and that it was an “unfortunate personal incident.” Clearly, WWE is backing away from Seth Rollins the performer and putting this on Colby Lopez the person.
This is actually what I expected the response to be but was told early Monday from someone that knows Rollins that Vince McMahon “blew a gasket.” Apparently McMahon was more upset about the nude photo of NXT Diva Zahra Schreiber being on dot com than anything else. I expect this to be the end of it. I’m sure Rollins will be spoken with about keeping his social media accounts secure but it’s probably embarrassing to him.
I certainly do not think Rollins should suffer any ramifications because of it and think it’s unfortunate for everyone involved. I think there is a lesson to be learned -- for everyone reading, not just WWE talent -- and that is to not take photos you do not want leaking out to the pubic. If they don’t exist, they cannot leak.
How did John Cena suffer his eye injury?
WWE claims the injury happened at live events and was “exacerbated” by Rusev’s “attack” on Raw. Cena was off this past weekend and I’m assuming the eye injury is why. The stuff with Rusev was a work to continue to promote their match for the United States Championship at Fastlane. As we reported Tuesday morning here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, Cena’s status is not in question and he is scheduled to wrestle at the pay-per-view.
Is there really a possibility that Sting and Undertaker work Wrestlemania 31 and they don’t face one another?
Not only is it possible that both Sting and Undertaker work Wrestlemania 31 and do not work one another, it is likely. Sting is scheduled to face Triple H at Wrestlemania 31 and will confront him face-to-face at WWE Fastlane. It’s the match Hunter had his heart set on and continually pitched. As for Undertaker vs. Wyatt, I can still not confirm Undertaker for the show but can confirm he’s who Wyatt is talking about in his promos. It looks like Undertaker will respond at some point and we’ll get that match in addition to Hunter vs. Sting at Wrestlemania 31 next month.
Do you expect The Usos to get any heat for leaking the WWE Hall of Fame induction of their father Rikishi?
The Usos were given the green light to Tweet about Rikishi’s Hall of Fame induction on their verified Twitter account on Monday afternoon. In fact, dot com credited them for “breaking the story,” kind of like they did for TMZ over “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Trust me, when WWE does that, it was for a reason. There is no heat on Jimmy or Jey Uso and they will induct their father into the WWE Hall of Fame over Wrestlemania 31 weekend.
From the Ask WNW vault…
January 2013: Is there any hope of having Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust at Wrestlemania 29? - It sure doesn’t look like it as Goldust worked the 30-man Royal Rumble match under a per shot deal. He still wants a Wrestlemania match against Cody and confirmed that here. Last year he tried to rally his Twitter followers into pushing WWE for the bout but it never happened.
The next installment of Ask WNW is scheduled to run on Wednesday, February 11, 2015.
