Fresh off of his loss to Finn Balor at SummerSlam earlier this week, Baron Corbin appeared on Raw last night and was absolutely furious. After being overruled on match decisions by Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, Corbin met with Stephanie McMahon backstage, who just had her arm injured by Ronda Rousey earlier in the show. McMahon and “The Constable” agreed, and Stephanie decided to officially make Corbin the acting General Manager of Raw for the foreseeable future. McMahon made it clear that Angle is still the GM, but he is now being required to take a brief “vacation.” Starting next week, Baron Corbin will now be in charge of WWE’s flagship show until Kurt Angle makes his return to the show.

Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks are hoping to make their upcoming All In event as huge as possible. Given that the show will be taking place in Chicago, Illinois, several wrestling fans have wondered if former WWE Superstar would make his first pro wrestling appearance in over four years in his hometown during All In. While speaking with Wrestling Inc., Cody revealed that he did send Punk a “real offer” to appear on the show. Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks even reportedly laid out a full pitch to Punk, but the former WWE Champion made it clear to the Bullet Club members that he is focused on his MMA career for the time being. At this point, it does not seem likely that CM Punk will be appearing during All In.
Charlotte Flair has already accomplished a lot during her time in WWE, including a run as NXT Women’s Champion, Diva’s Champion, and she is now a 7-time Women’s Champion between the Raw and Smackdown brands. While it was certainly impressive to see Flair regain the Smackdown Women’s Championship last night, her win at the event is actually even more historic due to the fact that she has now won a total of 24 matches on WWE pay-per-views. That win means that Flair has won more matches on pay-per-view than any other woman in WWE history. WWE even posted a graphic on social media earlier this week congratulating Flair on the astounding accomplishment from this past Sunday night.
@charlottewwe truly is #TheQueen…
