Some Backstage News Involving Royal Rumble, Noam Dar, Clash of Champions Spoiler

Chris Jericho

With the latest results from RAW, Kane and Braun Strowman are likely going to face Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble for the Universal Championship. I can add an additional rumor regarding that match - it was discussed during the weekly meetings to add Finn Balor to it as well. As we all know at this point the orginal match was Finn vs. Brock. However, Vince McMahon changed the match but the idea would be that Finn would come out on Raw as the Demon, look very strong and Kurt Angle would make the match a fatal four way.

Noam Dar is likely to be out of action for 4-6 months after having surgery to repair his left knee.

Vince McMahon is actually infatuated with the Chris Jericho/Kenny Omega angle, the old school approach and that Jericho himself had planned everything are all things he finds to be very impressive. I think it's safe to say that when Jericho comes back he will get a major push even at his age. I certainly would not rule out a Royal Rumble appearance.

It is very likely we see Booby Roode walk out of Clash of Champions with the US title. As of this writing, that is the planned finish.

NXT's show on Wednesday on the USA network drew under a million veiwers. This show was hardly promoted and was also available on the WWE network. I think we will see NXT on USA again as they will try to leverage this show with the new rights deal.
