Here is your fight size update for Friday, September 10th, 2021.
- Paul Heyman, ahead of Friday Night SmackDown where Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar are almost guaranteed to come together face to face, spoke with New York Post and said that there is still hope that perhaps Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns will end up on separate brands and can both reap the benefits of having Paul Heyman by their side:
I don’t know if we end up in a situation where Brock Lesnar can’t go after a different championship other than Roman Reigns’ and he can have his advocate and Roman Reigns can have his special counsel. There’s a lot of decisions to be made and there’s a lot of scenarios that can play out and I dare suggest anyone who thinks that they have this figured out doesn’t have a clue as to the twists and turns that could and will come in the near future.
- Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Ruby Soho further elaborated on why she is so happy to be in AEW.
“I was able to experience a lot in WWE and make lifelong friends, so I’m very grateful for my time there,” says Soho, who is 30-year-old Dori Prange. “But that chapter is closed, and I knew there had to be a new place for me. This is a chance to experience a side of professional wrestling I haven’t experienced yet. There is a fire here, and there is a lot for me to show the world. There are a lot of sides to what I do that have yet to flourish, and I am going to put it all out there in AEW.”
