Lesnar’s Next Appearance, Linda McMahon Advice to Women, Kanellis
Brock Lesnar was able to retain his Universal Championship once again after he was declared victorious in the Steel Cage match against Roman Reigns at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia. Lesnar’s win officially marks his second consecutive victory over Reigns, but there seemed to be some confusion given that the steel cage broke and Lesnar was awarded the win since his back hit the ground first even though Reigns’ feet actually touched the floor before Lesnar’s. The latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio has revealed that Lesnar should be back on Raw by June in order to help promote his next title defense, which is now rumored to be at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view in June.
Linda McMahon has gone from being a CEO in WWE to becoming the head of the US Small Business Administration under President Donald Trump. She talked about her transition during an interview with CNBC, and she also offered some advice to women hoping to succeed in any industry that is mainly dominated by males. McMahon stated that it was important to her to get her own principles across while also acknowledging that the goal is to help others not compete against each other, but to grow. “When you are constantly in a really heavily dominated male environment, the one counsel that I always give to young women and women who are older, as well, is don’t think you have to change who you are. You’re not, you don’t want to be, one of the guys, because you are who you are. So I never took that position. I earned their respect, because I knew what I was talking about and I did what I said I would do.” McMahon said. The full interview can be viewed down below:

The records for the longest amount of time spent in a single Royal Rumble match and for the most amount of eliminations in one match were both broken during the 50-man Royal Rumble match from WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble event this past Friday. Some fans were convinced that Raw Superstar Mike Kanellis’ sudden elimination at the hands of Mark Henry officially broke the record for the shortest amount of time spent in a Royal Rumble match. Fortunately for Kanellis, WWE has reported that he was in the match for a total of three seconds. This means that the record of one second set by Santino Marella during the 2009 Royal Rumble match still remains intact.
