Controversial Comments By Lars Sullivan, WM 36 Plans For The Man?
Inappropriate & controversial message board comments by Lars Sullivan have leaked online. Plus, WM 36 plans for Becky Lynch.
– According to a report by Ringside News, “The Freak” Lars Sullivan has landed in some hot water, with inappropriate message board comments from a bodybuilding group website that has leaked online. The controversial posts took place in 2011, with some of them being racist, sexist, and even putting down current WWE talents, as well.
While Big E commented on this (see tweet below), it seems that there is no heat on Sullivan for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the WWE was aware of the situation for some time now; and with the incident occurring eight years ago, Sullivan has shown remorse over his words and has apologized for what he wrote.
Many are aware. If true, he has to bear the albatross of being a bigot & working in a company that is now filled with minorities.

One very important thing to note is that Sullivan is quite the professional when it comes to online dialogue currently, and anyone who has been on his social media accounts will see that he conducts himself in a very positive and uplifting manner. In fact, despite being a heel onscreen, he does answer fans questions on his Instagram posts, and never has anything negative to say when he responds to their queries about life, other WWE superstars, and such. People can change, evolve, and move on from past negativity, and Lars Sullivan just may be an example of that.
– Becky Two Belts is riding a high wave within the WWE right now. She’s one of the top faces for the company, male or female, pulling double-duty on both Monday Night RAW and SmackDown LIVE, at the top of the Women’s Division ladder holding the Women’s Championships for both brands.

Having said that, it’s no surprise that the WWE is already trying to figure out what kind of role she should play on the next Grandest Stage of Them All.
Ringside News recently reported that Lynch versus Charlotte Flair was booked for this month’s Money in the Bank (MITB) pay-per-view as they weren’t going to move forward with a match between these two ladies come Wrestlemania 36.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, while it’s not clear on who she will face; however, the WWE has scratched off some names from the list of who The Man will NOT go up against: Stephanie McMahon or Ronda Rousey. Although, WON did state that if Rousey wanted the spot, she’d probably get it.
Having said that, Ronda is currently on a “impregnation vacation”, with plans to start a family with hubby Travis Browne, so it may seem unlikely she’d be ready for WM 36 if all this works out the way she’d like.
With Flair, McMahon, and Rousey off the list of potential opponents for The Man, one has to wonder who WWE has in mind for Becky Lynch, come WM 36.
