Top SmackDown Live Star Moving To Raw After Hell In A Cell 2017 PPV?

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials are thinking about moving top SmackDown Live Superstar Kevin Owens back to Raw after his Hell in a Cell match against WWF Veteran Shane McMahon at the upcoming Hell In A Cell 2017 PPV.

WWE is planning to do a “Superstar Shake-Up” or should we say just a few trades towards the end of this year and if Owens goes to Raw, then expect a top Raw Star to move to SmackDown Live in return.

If Owens goes on to defeat Shane O’Mac at Hell In A Cell 2017 and returns to Raw, then it’s possible that a Universal Title match (or should I say his rematch for the Universal Title that he never got) against Brock Lesnar might be in store for “The Prize Fighter”.

We’ll keep you updated regarding this. Speaking of Owens vs. Lesnar, they have faced each other a WWE Live Event before. You can watch it below:

Former WWE Star Comments On His Journey From WWE To MMA To Being A Movie Star

During an interview with CinemaBuzz, former WWE Champion Batista talked about his journey from WWE to MMA to being a movie star, the biggest challenge he has faced as an actor & more. Below are the highlights:

On his journey from WWE to MMA to being a Movie Star:

“Well, it’s weird that you say that, because I never, ever think along those lines and when I left wrestling I really left to pursue acting. I knew it was going to be a long route, because I passed up on a lot of the roles that you would think I would be after – the action roles, the typical ‘big ex-wrestler’ roles. I passed on those because I really wanted to prove myself as an actor, and I wanted to prove to people that I don’t want to be a movie star, I want to be an actor.

I just fell in love with it, and it’s been a long route, because I feel like these last couple years it’s starting to pay off. People are finally starting to accept me as an actor, and actually I’m starting to get recognized more as an actor and some people don’t even realize that I was wrestling at some point.”

On the biggest challenge he has faced as an actor:

“I think initially my biggest challenge was to get people to see past that persona I put on in WWE, to realize I wasn’t going to come into a room and try to intimidate everyone, and start barking and screaming and growling at everyone and hitting people with chairs. It was just to get past that stereotype because when I first started I even had a hard time getting auditions.

It’s still something I face from job to job getting people to look past this because there’s only so much I can pull off when I look like this or I’m built like this. When you look like you’re built like a gorilla it’s hard to get people to empathize with you and see past that. This is the way I am, this is the way I look, this is the way I’ve always looked, and it’s just who I am.”
