The biggest news to come out from Unforgiven of course is the return of Chris Jericho. There had been no rumours or possible give away to anybody outside the company that Chris Jericho was going to return, so the company did a good job of not giving Jericho’s return away. It is expected that after what happened last night Chris Jericho will feud with Ken Kennedy along with his now on screen father Vince McMahon, leading to a possible match between Jericho and Kennedy at Wrestlemania.
Also from what we learnt, tonight on Raw King Booker will face Triple H in a Steel Cage, in which if he loses he will leave the company. We reported before Unforgiven that a former World Heavyweight Champion was going to leave the company, and this news basically confirms that King Booker along with Sharmell will be leaving the company. It is expected at this time that they will straight away move onto wrestling for TNA.
It has also been reported the WWE has planned to change the style of its programming. The WWE management have been very disappointed with ratings over the past year, and are planning to make their shows more edgy and include more twists and shocks to bring in higher ratings. Last night’s Unforgiven PPV quite possibly started this change of style of programming, as we saw three very violent matches during the night and also the shock of Chris Jericho being Vince McMahon’s son.
A former WWE Champion has been scheduled to appear on Raw tonight. It is most likely that will be just another one off special appearance.
And finally, just hours after wrestling on a WWE PPV. WWE.COM has announced that they have come to terms with the release of David Taylor. They stated that they wish Taylor the best in his future endeavours. It is expected that the UKConnection will carry on however, as it is expected that William Regal is going to form a Stable along with the debuting Drew McIntyre and the re-debuting Paul Burchill in the near future.
Raw should be up in the next five days or so, and will try and give out as many reviews as I can before then.
