A few days ago, WWE fans were taken aback when Rikishi, a prominent figure from the wrestling world and a member of the celebrated Bloodline faction, unintentionally leaked a spoiler about his participation in the upcoming Payback 2023. The accidental reveal came about when Rikishi shared a graphic promoting an upcoming show where he was slated for a meet-and-greet session. This graphic indicated that the WWE Hall of Famer would not only be present at the show but would also officiate a match during the much-anticipated Premium Live Event.

This inadvertent leak sparked widespread speculation. With the Uso brothers, Jey and Jimmy, being key figures in the Bloodline, fans couldn’t help but wonder: was this a hint at Rikishi officiating a match between his own sons at the September 2 event?

Russo’s Candid Response

Vince Russo, a veteran in the wrestling circuit and a former writer for the WWE, recently shared his perspective on this burning topic. Speaking on Sportskeeda’s UnSKripted, Russo laid out a possible reason for the oversight.

Drawing attention to the possibility of Rikishi not being up-to-date with recent episodes of SmackDown, Russo posited, “Bro, unless, let’s be honest, is it possible he [Rikishi] doesn’t watch the show, and he thought it was already announced? I mean, I’m being dead serious, bro… he probably doesn’t [watch the show]. People would be shocked at how many former wrestlers do not watch the show.”

His statement sheds light on a larger issue. Is it plausible that former wrestling stars, who once thrived in the limelight of the squared circle, have distanced themselves from the weekly episodes and developments?

Fallout and Fan Speculation

Since Rikishi’s unplanned revelation, the WWE community has been buzzing with theories and anticipations. The idea of Rikishi stepping in as a referee for a match involving his own kin, the Uso brothers, has the potential to make for a compelling storyline. Not to mention, the added dynamic of family ties and allegiances might amplify the drama in and out of the ring.

There are also those who believe that this leak could be a well-strategized move by WWE to pique audience interest and boost viewership. After all, the wrestling business has been known to use shock value and suspense as tools to ensure glued eyeballs to the screen.

Awaiting Payback 2023

Whether it was a genuine oversight or a calculated marketing move, one thing is clear: the attention of the WWE universe is firmly fixed on Payback 2023. With the recent turn of events, the event promises to deliver high-octane action coupled with intricate storytelling, making it a must-watch.

As we inch closer to the date, fans will undoubtedly be on the lookout for more tidbits and spoilers. But for now, the Rikishi revelation remains the most talked-about teaser leading up to the grand event.
