Shoot or Work WWE News and Rumors
One of the best parts of being a wrestling fan is to discuss the news and rumors circulating in WWE and other promotions in the world. This week we talk about Drew McIntyre, Braun Strowman and WWE possibly signing two of the "best workers in the business."

Recently, WrestleVotes followed up with a tweet in May stating that the Scottish Psychopath was set for a big push upon his return with WWE. It looks like 2019 is going to be a big year for McIntyre. Mark Henry recently said in an interview that he will be Universal Champion "fairly soon". He even has the support of fans. We recently tweeted a possible final four for this upcoming Royal Rumble which included McIntyre, Braun Strowman, Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe. An overwhelming amount of people said it would be McIntyre, or should be he that wins and dethrones Brock Lesnar as Universal Champion at Wrestlemania.

Braun Strowman Working Injured and Having Backstage Heat
Multiple rumors are going around for Braun Strowman recently after his loss to Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel. [Listen to our episode on Crown Jewel]. Now people are starting to suspect that this is due to multiple reasons. The first being reported is that Strowman's knees are shot. This was first reported by Wrestling Observer Radio.
PW Insider is also reporting that Strowman has some backstage heat for coming to shows late and leaving early. It is noted that "Braun is his own worst enemy," right now.
WWE Trying to Sign "Two of the Best Workers in the Business"
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is getting ready for their January class of signing and it may include "two of the best workers in the business. The plan right now is that medical examinations are starting mid-November with the intention that they will sign in January. However, due to contractual obligations, they are not currently available for January 2019. While it is still very vague one person we know it will not be is Tetsuya Naito who rejected an offer. Young Bucks and Cody's contract will be up in January so it can't be them. Are they talking about Kenny Omega? Could it be Chris Jericho? Maybe it's Will Ospreay or the recently departed Neville?
