Brock Lesnar Walk Out Update, WWE Tops Youtube, Ambrose Talks Travelling

Why Brock Lesnar Walked Out Rumors

There’s a lot of speculation as to why Brock Lesnar walked out during RAW, though the prevailing theory is still that he had some kind of disagreement over his contract, which is up for renewal.

It’s believed that it may have something to do with WWE not being very proactive about his merchandise, and are refusing to talk about it until he signs an extension. Since it’s Wrestlemania season he could be losing out on a fair chunk of money.

One rumor started on Reddit (NOT by MetsFan4Ever) claims that Roman Reigns failed a drug test and WWE are keeping it quiet, causing Lesnar to walk out in protest because he doesn’t want to be mentioned in the same breath as a PED user when he may be headed back to MMA.

… Yeah, it doesn’t make any sense and until there’s some confirmation I call BS. It seems extremely unlikely.

WWE Surpass NBA On Youtube

WWE SURPASSES NBA AS #1 SPORTS CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE

STAMFORD, Conn., February 25, 2015 – With more than 4.2 billion video views in the last 12 months, WWE has become the No. 1 Sports channel on YouTube ahead of the NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL, ESPN and NASCAR. In addition, WWE on YouTube has more than 5.2 million subscribers, which is more than MLB, NFL, NHL, ESPN, NASCAR, MLS and NBC Sports COMBINED.

WWE continues to remain a leader in social media, with more than 450 million combined social media followers globally. During the past year, WWE’s social media channels added more than 194 million followers, a nearly 75 percent increase year-over-year. WWE’s network of Facebook pages has more followers than the NFL and its 32 teams’ pages combined, and WWE Superstar John Cena is the No. 1 most-followed active American athlete on Facebook, with more than 36 million “Likes.”

Since launching in 2008, WWE’s YouTube channel has featured award-winning original short-form programming, including popular shows such as WWE Inbox, WWE Fury, 5 Things and WWE Top Ten. In addition, WWE uses its YouTube channel to promote its monthly WWE Network and pay-per-view events by airing live pre-shows that include exclusive matches and commentary.

Ambrose Talks Travelling To New Jersey

Dean Ambrose discussed performing In New Jersey as an Indy wrestler and as a WWE star to promote next Monday’s RAW, from Newark’s Prudential Center. He told App.com:

I spent a lot of time just going up and down I-95 and the Turnpike, doing shows in New York, Philly, Jersey, that whole area, because that was kind of a hotbed for indie wrestling. I’ve worked in all of the major arenas. I worked in Prudential, Barclays, Garden, Izod, MetLife Stadium — but also every little five and dime and bingo hall and union workers’ hall and whatever shed or pool hall, anywhere you can set up a ring, any little warehouse. So, that’s been one of my stomping grounds.

It’s always trippy for me to be in front of that many people because it’s just kind of hard to understand. Like, wrestling in front of 20 people or 100 people can be a little weird, but wrestling in front of a sold out ‘Monday Night Raw,’ 13,000 people, it’s kind of above your scope of understanding people. It’s just kind of this big, giant mass of noise. So actually, in a lot of ways, it’s easier. But it’s cool to feel the electricity going on in the towns right around this time, getting ready to go out in front of 80,000 people at WrestleMania, and that’s what you look forward to every year.
