With the Premium Live Event expanding on existing storylines and setting up others, Sports Brief looks at questions arising from the show.

Five questions raised after WWE event

Are Dom and Liv a storyline item?

Liv Morgan is the new Women’s World Champion, but she has Dominik Mysterio to thank for that.

After legitimately injuring former champ, Rhea Ripley, Dirty Dom has been wanting to get some measure of revenge on Morgan.

Despite the supposed animosity between the pair, WWE have teased that they have a secret relationship.

With the Judgement Day member inadvertently costing Becky Lynch her title at King and Queen of the Ring, it could turn out that he helped Morgan, on purpose, claim the belt.

Is Otis getting a singles push?

Otis is one of those wrestlers the crowd loves to support, but he hasn’t been given a proper singles push.

The former Tag Team champion was a Money in the Bank winner, but he lost the briefcase to The Miz before he could cash it in.

Otis has often been used as part of a tag team, but after ‘accidentally’ taking out Chad Gable during the Intercontinental title match, the WWE could give him a proper singles run.

Will Orton get a title shot before retiring?

Randy Orton is a future Hall of Famer; there’s no denying it.

The Legend Killer debuted in 2002 and is still involved in classic matches to this day. Orton took on Gunther in the final of the King of the Ring tournament but sadly came up short after a controversial finish.

The Viper is now 44, and with many talented younger wrestlers proving their worth, will Orton get a chance to become a 15-time world champion?

Can Drew win the title at home?

Drew McIntyre is eager to put the embarrassment of WrestleMania 40 behind him.

The Scottish warrior beat Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight title but held it for five minutes before losing it.

Despite not competing at King of the Ring, Triple H did mention him when announcing that McIntyre would be getting a title shot at Damian Priest at Clash at the Castle.

The event will be held in Scotland, which suggests that McIntyre could win the belt in front of his home fans, but that wasn’t the case in 2012.

McIntyre lost to Roman Reigns in Scotland on that occasion, begging the question of whether it will happen again.

Is Logan Paul a future world champion?

Whether you love him or hate him, Logan Paul deserves to be a WWE superstar.

The social media influencer has proved doubters wrong with his performances inside the ring and even took Cody Rhodes to the limit.

MMA Fighting reported that Paul got people talking during the main event as he hit a Frog Splash through the table on Rhodes during their match.

While he can undoubtedly produce classic moments and matches, the jury is out on whether he should hold one of the world titles. Paul is currently the United States champion.

Triple H gifts Bayer Leverkusen a title

Bayer Leverkusen’s historic title win caught the eye of the WWE, Sports Brief reported.

The German side ended Bayern Munich’s lengthy run as the Bundesliga champions.

They were honoured with a special WWE title for their efforts by Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque.
