William Regal In The Hall Of Fame? Where Is Orton? What To Expect At Raw Tapings? Dean Ambrose Heel Turn?

William Regal

With William Regal being so respected amongst other wrestlers and teaching guys like Triple H how to improve their craft, do you ever see him going into the Hall of Fame?

I don't think there is any doubt William Regal should be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in the future. Regal is without doubt one of the most underrated talents in the industry and can have a great match with just about anyone you put in the ring with him. Regal is one of those veteran, hard working guys who had the potential to become a World Champion, and it's a shame it never happened. My personal favourite run of Regal was when he won the 2008 King of the Ring, as I really thought that was a point he was having some of the best matches of his career and was pretty much looking like he was on for a pretty big push. Sadly personal demons prevented Regal from taking that next step in his career, but when you consider he is a former four time WCW Television Champion, four time WWF European Champion, a five time Hardcore Champion, four time Tag Team Champion and two time Intercontinental Champion, then all in all I'd say you would have a hard time arguing against Regal ever being inducted. As with anything though that is down to Vince McMahon and the other decision makers to decide if and when Regal is inducted.

Where is Randy Orton?

Sadly it seems Randy Orton will not be back on our screens or in the ring any time soon with the news that he suffered a dislocated shoulder and will be out of action for around 4 to 6 months, meaning he now faces the prospect of missing Wrestlemania 32. Orton had previously spent some time off screen filming the new Condemned 2 movie, which is due for release before the end of 2015. The last time we saw Orton in action was on the September 21st edition of WWE Raw, when he saved Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns from The Wyatt Family, which started an alliance between Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Orton. The injury couldn't have come a a worse time for WWE with John Cena taking time off from the company too. Orton has a history of shoulder issues relating to a condition he has known as hypermobile shoulders which means his shoulder joints can stretch further than a normal person. This means Orton's joints may be easily injured, be more prone to complete dislocation due to the weakly stabilized joint, and he may develop problems from muscle fatigue. The fact Orton is able to perform so regularly and not get injured in itself is a miracle. Hopefully Randy will be back in action sooner rather than later.

I'm attending my first WWE Raw taping on November 9th and was wondering what to expect?

Congratulations on taking the steps to attend your first WWE live event. It's an experience I guarantee you will never forget. I'm also going to be at that particular Raw taping in Manchester and it promises to be a great night of action. As for what to expect you can expect the doors to the venue to open at around 6PM with the show starting at 7PM. If there is any merchandise you want I'd suggest getting there early to beat the rush because it tends to get pretty hectic in there. In terms of action they will most likely tape a match for Superstars before the show starts to warm up the crowd and also film a little vignette to broadcast on the USA Network later in the day to hype up the show. The action will most likely kick off for Raw around 7:30PM. A match announced already for the show is a six man tag team match between Roman Reigns, Demon Kane and Dean Ambrose versus Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman. No word yet whether that will be for the Raw show itself or whether it will be a dark match for after the show but I'm sure we will find out nearer to the time. The show will probably last till around 10:30PM or 11PM latest and then you'll be going home with a mind full of memories. Hope that kind of gives you a bit of an idea for what to expect.

I have a feeling Dean Ambrose will turn on Roman Reigns and cost him the title at Survivor Series. Do you think it is possible we will see a feud between the two with the way WWE's booking goes and the fact they want to establish Reigns as the new face of WWE?

There is talk of a potential turn that pits Ambrose and Reigns in a feud but whether or not that rumour turns out to be true is anyone's guess until the match goes down between Reigns and Rollins. At one point I thought there would be a turn of sorts at this years Summerslam when Reigns and Ambrose took on Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper, but after much teasing and delaying in the match the turn never came. It's no secret WWE want to establish and push Roman Reigns as the next face of the company and he's going to need an adversary to go up against. So who better than his best friend Dean Ambrose. Ambrose is the perfect person for Roman to battle against as these two know each other inside out and it would also be beneficial to Ambrose in my mind as it helps elevate him to the next level and hopefully bring him more into the main event picture. I feel the turn is coming, I just don't know for sure whether or not it will be at Survivor Series, before or after. Just keep an eye on these two over the next few weeks as the seeds are likely to begin being planter if it's going to happen anytime soon.
