Top WWE RAW Rumors: Former Champion being punished for backstage behavior; Multiple Superstars reject WWE’s contract offers; Drew McIntyre sets new record (4th January)

WWE have some big plans in store for the next match between The Fiend and Randy Orton, multiple Superstars are unhappy with WWE’s new contract offers and WWE RAW’s biggest Superstar Drew McIntyre has set another record. These are some of the topics that we will discuss in today’s edition of the top WWE RAW backstage rumours.

The Fiend and Randy Orton have been locking horns on WWE RAW for the past few weeks and it was The Viper who got the upper hand on The Fiend at TLC by winning the Firefly Inferno match. However, the feud between the two is far from over and WWE is planning something even more sinister for the two WWE RAW Superstars.

Apart from that, we will also take a look into why a former 4-time Champion is not being pushed on WWE RAW. Former WWE Writer Vince Russo believes it could be because this talented Superstar keeps pitching too many ideas related to his character, which has led him into the bad books of management.

So without further ado, let us dive in and take a look at the big backstage rumours related to RAW:


#5 Possible reason why Elias is being ‘punished’ on WWE RAW

4-time 24/7 Champion Elias has received the ‘start-stop’ treatment ever since he debuted on the main roster. Even though The Drifter has established himself as a prominent star on WWE RAW, he has still not received a big of a push as many thought he would have gotten.

Speaking to SK Wrestling on Legion of RAW, Vince Russo speculated that the reason behind WWE RAW Superstar Elias not getting a push is his own initiative. Russo believes that Elias has too many ideas for his character, which ruffles some feathers backstage:

“Elias is the kind of guy that pitches ideas. He’s always thinking about his character and week after week pitching ideas, that’s who Elias is. Bro, I’ll be honest with you. Back when he was in NXT, I got a DM from him. I didn’t even know who he was and he had to tell me who he was. Even then, he was picking my brain about his character.”

If Elias is being punished for pitching his own ideas, then it sets a wrong precedent for other Superstars as it would deter them from trying to improve their on-screen characters.

As per a report by Fightful Select, one of the Superstars who wasn’t interested in renewing his WWE contract was WWE RAW Superstar Riddle. As per the report, the former NXT Tag Team Champion was hesitant in signing with WWE again as he wasn’t impressed by the offer that he had received from the company.

However, the report also stated that WWE improved their offer which led to Riddle finally signing a new deal with the company:

“It was added that Matt Riddle wasn’t too interested in renewing his contract after an initial offer was made. WWE changed the terms of the deal, and the belief was that Matt Riddle would put ink to paper by the end of 2020.”

As per some sources, WWE RAW Superstar Matt Riddle finally signed the deal last week.


#1 Plans for WWE RAW Superstars Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton for Royal Rumble

The Fiend Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton have been embroiled in a bitter feud over the past month on WWE RAW. The Viper Randy Orton even ‘burned’ The Fiend after their match at TLC not long ago.

However, their absurd feud is far from over as The Observer has now reported that WWE is planning to have a Firefly Funhouse match between the two WWE RAW Superstars at Royal Rumble.

The last Firefly Funhouse match took place between John Cena and Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 36 and is still considered one of the most bizarre yet unique matches in WWE history.
