– During today’s edition of The Wrestling Observer, Dave Meltzer shared some backstage details about the ongoing Raw angle involving Seth Rollins and AOP against Big Show, Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens. According to Meltzer, Big Show apparently not part of the long-term plans for the current Raw history. As previously reported, Buddy Murphy seemed to join the angle last night, and seemed to help Rollins and AOP gain victory in their “Fist Fight” against Big Show, Joe and Owens.
In addition, Meltzer claimed that Rey Mysterio is planning to join the expensive crew with Joe and Owens at some point. He continued that Big Show is not planned to be booked as a long-term part of the angle. He said: “Big Show is there for now, but Big Show is not there in the long term. It was brought as a favor because they were like a man. Therefore, I don’t know how long it will be. That it wasn’t meant to be one thing long term. “
However, with Buddy Murphy getting in the mix, that could mean those backup plans for the big show will have to change. Meltzer continued, “It was not meant to be a long-term thing, but with Buddy Murphy, they are again with one less man. Therefore, it can be still around a little while. “
Rey Mysterio is currently feuding with Andrade on Raw. It is scheduled to face Andrade in another rematch next week for the US title. This will be played in a Ladder Match.
