Tonight’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw will feature more hype for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, and several matches have been confirmed for the show.
Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe and Big Show are set to face Seth Rollins and AOP in a fist fight, but it seems that the fist fight has created a lot of questions.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that no one in WWE knows what the fist fight will consist of, and that talents and others in the company had not been informed of the match details as of the weekend.
The word going around is that WWE officials don’t want anyone knowing what the match will be until it happens on TV.
Kevin Owens is set to compete in the fist fight, but even he noted on Twitter that he’s unsure of the rules.
Can someone tell me what the rules to a Fist Fight are? If I punch through Seth’s face, do we win?
I called Vince this week to ask him and he put me on hold for 5 hours and 18 minutes before the call mysteriously dropped
Anyway, lme know.
