WWE

  • Rey Mysterio plays himself in a guest appearance on the Victor & Valentino show on 11/27 on Cartoon Network. The show airs at 10 a,m.
  • Big E just appeared on Cincy 360, a radio show on ESPN 1530 based out of Cincinnati. He was on to promote the Raw show on 1/31/22, the first show after Royal Rumble. Put over how proud he is of Xavier Woods and how he’s legit wanted to win King of the Ring for years, and he just kept pushing when everyone said he was too small, or not good enough to get it done. Said he loves him and gave him a big hug at the gorilla position in Saudi Arabia when he won KOTR. When asked who he wants to win Royal Rumble and challenge him at WrestleMania, he immediately said Cesaro. Said he can do it all and has been one of the best for years and hasn’t gotten his due. Said the match vs Roman at Survivor Series is the biggest of his career. Said Roman has been at the top of the mountain for years and has only upped his game in his current run. Called going back to Iowa where he played college football, for the game against Penn St the highlight of the cool stuff he’s gotten to do outside of the ring since becoming champion. Also put over being part of Fury/Wilder and his love for college football. Said it’s a tough balancing act honing his craft in the ring and his outside opportunities like being on the Stephen Colbert show, but if he doesn’t stay focused, this could all go away. Said this current run kind of came out of nowhere, but he feels blessed. Said getting the title changed his life and he doesn’t see himself going back to the way things used to be.
