Rumor of the day


Goldberg and Kevin Owens will be under the same roof ahead of their Universal Championship match Sunday night. Which of the two Superstars will gain the upper hand and, more importantly, momentum before their epic encounter? and social media may not be able to give us that answer, but it can prepare the WWE Universe for what to expect from the Feb. 27 episode of its flagship show.


The biggest story leading into Raw is Rollins’ return and the impact it will have on the company’s WrestleMania plans.

His bout with Triple H was slated to be one of the most important on the card, but his recent MCL tear has put the contest in jeopardy. Whatever happens on Raw—be it a physical altercation with The Game or the announcement that the injury is too severe to compete—will give fans a clearer indication of what they can expect on April 2 in Orlando, Florida.

More urgent, though, is the final touches on the Goldberg-Owens program, which has received minimal build, thanks to inconsistent appearances by the No. 1 contender and, more importantly, an intriguing few developments in Owens’ friendship-turned-bitter rivalry with Chris Jericho.

Roman Reigns has been on the receiving end of a beatdown at the hands of Braun Strowman for a number of weeks, left lying in a heap at The Monster Among Men’s feet.

Can Reigns rebound and generate even the slightest hint of momentum for himself ahead of the Superstars’ massive Fastlane clash, or will Strowman again assert his dominance, leaving real doubts about the former WWE champion’s ability to beat him?

A week ago, Enzo Amore and Big Cass earned a shot at the Raw Tag Team Championships, defeating Sheamus and Cesaro to cash their tickets to Fastlane and a shot at Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows’ titles. After a big Brogue Kick from The Celtic Warrior to Amore, though, there may be unfinished business between the two fan-favorite tandems.
