Putting in spoilers in case you didn't see GBOF.

Spoiler:
The ambulance match's aftermath had Roman driving the ambulance and ramming it into a trailer. Braun was in it and felt the blunt of it.

He's fine due to the story and Braun won the match prior to this.

That would explain the " attempted murder" and his potential heel turn. It must have been some controversial finish that made him bitter.

For those not in the know of what happened, TMZ released a video recording at an airport with Alberto and Paige, who are together. Many sites have reported on it, the video being here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y71Bfyp518w

Paige attempted to deny the claims on Twitter, claiming the fan who recorded them is responsible, as shown here:

https://twitter.com/RealPaigeWWE/sta...96020008251392
https://twitter.com/RealPaigeWWE/sta...96145673850880

It's become clear from her family though that they're in an abusive relationship. Her brother even said the following that she'll end up like Whitney Houston or Amy Winehouse if something isn't done.
https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/39992...er-zak-zodiak/

He even claims he has photos of the abuse and Alberto is now why she won't return.

http://www.wrestlezone.com/news/8596...-return-to-wwe

I feel really bad for Paige based on all that, she deserves a lot better. No wonder Triple H tried to separate them.

I hope to God that Alberto never sees work again, in both Impact/GFW and going forward. It's a goddamn disgrace. Same goes for Yoshiko a few years back in Japan.

Big heat on Enzo and Cass. Cass was grilled for supporting Donald Trump, while Enzo was thrown off a tour bus by Roman Reigns and exiled from the locker room

I'm not super knowledgeable about the the behind the scenes side, but is the Mae Young Classic an influx of female talent to NXT?

I'm hoping there's another source that can verify this, but if that's the case, it's going to be another guy's yard now.

I read that a couple of days ago. I do not see what would have inimstigated the change. With Undertaker on the retirement side Roman is why I watch the opening and closing acts of RAW. I suppose I am in a minority.

I'd think it'd have to do with Roman's presentation and polarizing nature personally. Some have mentioned the reason they canceled their WWE Network subscriptions can be attributed to Roman himself at the forefront.

Additionally, with the possibility of another coronation of Roman, either with Brock or Cena, some are just tired of him. I may be wrong though.

Roman or the real guy, Joe is a bully and jerk? I thought he was a hardworking likeable guy who was all about family? I found it odd that he used his influence to remove that Amore guy from the bus. It did not seem like him to involve himself in petty things like that.

Roman as a character, not the man.

As pointed out in the past, I do like Roman; he's far from a favorite of mine, but I see he's improved. This no-nonsense badass since Wrestlemania 33 has been Roman at his best since the Shield days. I got an evil laugh at GBOF when he destroyed Braauuunnn.

If Roman wasn't rushed heavily following the Shield's breakup, I'd assume a majority of fans, at least 30% wouldn't be mad at his sudden rise. Can't improve the damages though unless he turns heel.

As for the bus incident with Enzo, it was because Enzo said his real life was better than his WWE life. Enzo got into hot water with the locker room due to this, but Roman was the only notable example to come out of reports.

Another tag team bites the dust after Raw last night.

Spoiler:
You know the Kurt Angle text subplot that threatened to destroy his job over the past month or two?

It was revealed that Jason Jordan is his illegitimate son, which as of now disbanded American Alpha. I hope both Chad Gable and Jordan can get some decent mid to upper midcard pushes going forward, even if the tag team divisions on Raw and Smackdown are even bleaker now.

With Joe and Reigns ending in a no contest, it's looking likelier that they'll be a four way match at Summerslam for the title.

As for Jordan...eh, I thought it should have been Gable. We'll have to see if Kurt can get him over

Well, that will be an interesting storyline though I barely watch RAW now because I have other shows to watch and I'm too tired to stay up for the third hour though there are times when I try to. I am watching SmackDown again though so that's a good thing.

I hope Shane is okay now.

Either Brock Lesnar is leaving or he's looking to capitalize on his paycheck.
