Original plan for Smackdown; HHH comments on Walter Submitted by Aaron T-Bar Rift on 01/06/2021 at 12:41 PM
- Twitter account @WrestleVotes noted the following about last week's WWE Smackdown segment with Roman Reigns, Jey Uso, and Kevin Owens:
Just heard an interesting story... NXT talent was slated to be called up to SmackDown last week, as of showtime, was written into the main event segment w/ Reigns, Uso & KO. Said talent is on tonight’s big NXT card so curious to see if it was pushed a week or scrapped altogether.
- During an appearance on WWE's The Bump, Triple H commented on WALTER:
"It is tough to bet against WALTER. Anyone who has watched him over the last few years, anyone who has recently watched him against Ilja [Dragunov], one of the most physically imposing, physically dominating performers out there. There’s no wasted movement, he’s not flashy, he doesn’t care about how it looks, he’s just effective. That said, you’ve seen it in the past with other talent like Brock Lesnar.
Brock has struggled a lot of times with more smaller guys, speed kills. You would watch Brock Lesnar sometimes step in the ring with Daniel Bryan and have a much more difficult time, Daniel Bryan would get much more in because Brock couldn’t strike as hard and as fast, he would have to catch him first and find his way. In that process, he would eat a lot of shots, now it would take a lot of shots from Daniel Bryan’s size to knock Brock Lesnar down, but he ate a lot of shots to get one in. WALTER just has to sustain that." (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
