Mike Chioda Discusses The WWE Locker Room Turmoil, Talks Royal Rumble



During the latest edition of his “Monday Mailbag Podcast” for Ad Free Shows, former WWE referee Mike Chioda commented on the WWE locker room turmoil, the Royal Rumble being chaotic backstage, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the Royal Rumble: “I was a little surprised at the [Royal] Rumble, I thought we’d have maybe more surprises than just Brock Lesnar. Don’t get me wrong, he sells tickets, he’s the man, but I thought maybe The Rock would be coming in or something. Unless they’re setting something up for [WrestleMania 39 in] LA next year. A lot of chaos too, I heard some chaos was going on and no surprise Ronda Rousey takes the Royal Rumble. Hopefully, she sticks around for a while for the women. No big surprises though, that’s where I was shocked.”

On possible WWE locker room turmoil: “I know there’s probably a lot of turmoil going on about who’s coming in, who’s taking over and getting to that WrestleMania. When you win that Royal Rumble, boy, the main thing for them to do is to say ‘Point to the WrestleMania sign.’ And if you’re a talent working hard 365 days a year to get to that WrestleMania point and of course, you have to get through the Rumble and certain points in the Rumble to get to ‘Mania. I’m sure there was the talent that was upset, there was talent upset over the years that thought they should have won the Rumble.”

On the rumors regarding Shane McMahon’s involvement with booking the men’s Rumble match: “I heard some rumors they were going to push Randy Orton and put him over on the Rumble and somehow that changed, of course, it did change. At what point, I don’t know, but I’d like to see Randy get a push. He deserves it to get back to that WWE title. The guy’s phenomenal, a hell of a worker, and has done tons of his matches. I don’t know why, I’d like to see Randy get that extra push. He’s been with Riddle, trying to build up Riddle but I don’t know, they probably thought Riddle wasn’t ready yet. To put Randy in that spotlight, I would’ve loved that match because you just saw Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.”
