We'll probably see Chris Masters come back.

PPTV and PPTV Sports will stream the shows on Smart TVs, set-top boxes, mobile devices, and tablets, as well as their websites. There will also be specialized Chinese programming on those services.

On the in-ring side, Bin Wang is now under a developmental deal, the first wrestler of Chinese ancestry to be with the promotion. Often known as Wang Bin, he has been a regular undercard wrestler for Antonio Inoki's IGF promotion in Japan. The Inoki group first reported on his signing with WWE Wednesday night and wished him well. He starts this weekend with the promotion.

In conjunction with the news, WWE has reached a deal with Expo Group as live promoters, and announced a 9/10 live event at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai.

It’s not Ronda Rousey being linked in an angle with The Rock and being put over strong, which only helped her, as Rousey’s next PPV main did 300,000 more buys. That’s not saying it was because of Mania or The Rock, but it surely helped her with a new fan base. This is Rousey being brought in and UFC agreeing to let her lose to Stephanie McMahon.
From the recent Observer Newsletter about the WWE being potentially the big losers in the upcoming Lesnar-Hunt fight in regards to Lesnar's star power value.

Right now they want experienced wrestlers who they can use on tours as opposed getting athletes and teach them to be pro wrestlers from scratch.

Some yearly ratings comparisons to show how dire things are becoming for the WWE in regards to ratings. The yearly decline amount has been around the same range (250k-500k) since end of the Attitude Era except the "record low ratings" shows have started to occur earlier every year for the past couple of years.

So, the total viewership was 327,000 viewers, which added up, means Impact was up a tiny amount from 326,000 viewers the previous week.

Lucha Underground Co-Executive Producer Chris DeJoseph was recently a guest on The Ross Report with Jim Ross. He stated that there has been some talk internally about extending the show from one hour to 90 minutes. "[90 minutes] is like the perfect time to get all the stories you need to in, great matches, give matches some time, and at the same time, not overdo it and keep me interested to come back next week." DeJoseph added, "the 90 minutes would be perfect. Have we talked about it? Sure. It's something that we would love to have. But in a way, I enjoy the one hour because it goes by so fast. The next thing you know, it's like, 'gosh, I have to wait a-whole-nother week for it?' And I think that's a good thing to have happen."

Yeah but a Rise of NXT where they interview different people about the evolution of FCW into NXT and the success that NXT had had would be pretty good. I can use the Network to watch great matches.

Paige ended up being involved in an incident yesterday that ended up with police being needed and her being sent to a hospital.

Quote:
Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed that Paige was taken to the hospital last night … and the reason she was in handcuffs was because she was detained by police shortly beforehand.

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department tells us police were outside of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last night for an unrelated incident when they were flagged down for a female who was seen running into the streets. After authorities caught up with the woman she was quickly detained, and officers determined that she needed to be taken to the hospital for undisclosed reasons.

Sources tell us the woman was Paige, but law enforcement was unable to verify the woman’s name due to HIPAA laws. It’s unclear if she’s still hospitalized but Paige does not appear to be in police custody at this point.

It appears that one reason for WWE taking the title off of Roman Reigns may be due to house show business. WWE live event attendance in May had dropped from 5,600 last year to 3,900 this year, which is a 30% decline. While John Cena had been out of action, the A and B house show tours had been doing close to the same numbers. The B shows are usually the smaller towns and venues, and were headlined by Dean Ambrose. On this morning’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer had the following to say…

“Last month the ‘B’ shows with Dean Ambrose, that were often in smaller markets, were drawing just as well as the ‘A’ shows with Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns is drawing really bad. Before he wasn’t, but now he is, so now it’s an issue. Does that mean that it led to this [title change], or is this just another way to get Roman Reigns more over, because that’s been the goal for the last however long? Time will tell.”


Heh, don't know what to honestly believe on that.

Who ever gets over with steph? Someone please remind me.

Quote:
Backstage reports are claiming because of his position as a top guy in the company, Roman Reigns will be allowed to appear on the next Monday Night Raw and will actually be 'written off' WWE television until the Battleground PPV. Plans are to still continue with the triple threat match.
Update to the Reigns suspension story according to the sheets. WWE had the chance to write him off during tonight's Smackdown instead but decided to send him home till next week's RAW.

The hot Raw show and the match to determine the top contender in the third hour proved that if the show is good and has a strong main event, the audience will largely stick with it.

Raw did its best numbers since April 11, eight days after WrestleMania, doing 3.47 million viewers, up from the seasonal lowest mark since 1997 of 2.96 million the week before, a 17 percent increase over the week.

Among the reasons for the increase was lack of television competition, with no major sports and nothing on network TV that did more than 7.1 million viewers. Raw had been hurt in recent weeks particularly by the NBA playoffs and to a lesser extent the NHL playoffs, and Dancing With the Stars. Raw ended up third for the night on cable behind Rizzoli & Isles and Major Crimes on TNT and second in the 18-49 demo behind Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.

The three hours were:

8 p.m. 3.42 million viewers
9 p.m. 3.56 million viewers
10 p.m. 3.42 million viewer
Besides no real sports competition, the 3rd hour having very little drop off is another big positive for the WWE this week.

Quote:
Kurt Angle was on Mark Madden's radio show today and said that he has talked with HHH about coming back to WWE. The conversation took place six weeks ago and he said he didn't know when he was coming in. That's an about-face on Angle who the company had no talked with even though he's been a free agent since the end of January and they wouldn't even talk with him the year earlier when he was a free agent. As noted the WWE has been very aggressive of late when it comes to contacting talent, including people that in the past they had shown no interest in. They are looking to make as big a bang as possible over the next month leading to the brand launch. However, a few of the names who have been mentioned as being talked with have told us that their names on the list are incorrect, but they are people under contract to TNA or Lucha Underground. They were looking at introducing people ASAP, including before the draft takes place. The only names we can report that were called are MVP, Carlito and Stevie Richards, but that's the tip of the iceberg.

He said nobody had any physical marks and reiterated that she was trying to leave and he thought she had too much to drunk and shouldn't be driving. She said it was a shouting match and a lot of what was claimed to have been said actually wasn't said such as him telling her to shoot herself. He claimed she said things that were never said to the police.
Besides a restraining order being placed for the two, the judge for the case stated the next hearing will occur on July 1st.

We’ve got new information regarding an incident involving Paige and Las Vegas police last night after WWE’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. After investigating the situation and receiving a tip from a reader close to the situation, here’s what we know:

This was not a segment for Total Divas and there was no camera crew present. Paige and Alberto Del Rio were arguing outside of Cesar’s Palace hotel & casino. Paige tried to run across the street on Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd. Police were present and Paige was handcuffed ‘for her own safety.’

She was then sent to a local medical facility (either UMC or Sunrise Hospital) for a “mental evaluation” (often referred to as “Legal 2000”), which allows authorities to detain someone who may be a danger to themselves or others. She was not arrested.
Update to yesterday's news regarding a recent incident involving Paige.

Original plans had Becky turning heel. No word yet on why plans were changed.

Some other sheet news includes:
  • According to Dave Meltzer on Twitter, WWE is currently worth between $1.2 to $1.4 billion if they were to be sold right now. The tweets were in response to recent news of UFC getting sold for around $4.2 billion. https://twitter.com/davemeltzerWON/s...57112963768321 https://twitter.com/davemeltzerWON/s...52554271219712

  • WWE is currently debunking reports about next year's Royal Rumble occurring in Los Angeles. Rumors started after people alleged the WWE revealed the location during a recent press conference.
  • Alberto Del Rio ended up suffering a bruised bone during Sunday's MitB ppv with the WWE having precautionary x-rays done to ensure nothing was broken.
  • WWE is currently teasing Randy Orton will be making his return by late August while Miz is currently teased to be returning from filming this weekend.

Becky has got more merchandise to flog. It doesn't make sense to turn her yet. She can be a babyface on the opposite brand to Sasha and Bayley.

Sources with knowledge of the situation noted to us that this was a recent violation. WWE has at times gotten positive test results and waited months at times to announce and suspend the particulars. Sometimes it has to do with investigating and allowing the talent the chance to explain their actions. Sometimes it has to do with certain timing issues. It is not against company policy, and has been done regularly when key talent violates the policy, to tie up storylines before announcing and starting suspensions.
Current speculation is Reigns failed the test somewhere between last Tuesday and last Sunday with the WWE only making a decision on what to do prior to the MitB ppv itself. Also only made the decision to actually suspended him until yesterday.

For the rest of the year, the schedule lists SummerSlam on 8/21 at the Barclays Center; a Smackdown exclusive Network special called Backlash on 9/11 from Richmond, VA which will not air on any regular PPV carriers ... What gives credence to this list is WWE just took out a trademark for Clash of the Champions, the 9/11 date being network exclusive means they couldn’t lock in the date due to timing with U.S. providers because of the late change (PPV providers want all materials to them at least 90 days before the show); plus the dates and sites for 8/21, 9/25, 10/30, 11/20 and 12/18 are all accurate.

Punk is slated to fight Mickey Gall in his debut.

Helwani wrote the fight is, "Far from a done deal but that's the direction as of this AM. "
Think the original plan was for him to debut by UFC 200 but several injuries and unexpected delays kept pushing the debut back.

Dave Meltzer is concerned over WWE’s lack of actual drawing power according to the end of his Money in the Bank review. He’s worried that due to WWE’s aggressive need to pull off a large surplus of stars off of the NXT roster to make space for the Raw and Smackdown draft that most of the talent transitioned off NXT “Just aren’t ready for real programming yet”

The two biggest examples of this come in the form of Apollo Crews due to his lack of gimmick and Baron Corbin whom Dave has referred to as “Painfully Medicore” with the only thing going for him is “He’s really tall which is what Vince appreciates in a wrestler chosen to succeed by him”

Another star Dave appears to be the most worried about is Seth Rollins and WWE’s inability to seem to wanna make him a top babyface. This doesn’t appear to be an issue with Roman Reigns anymore as its starting to become more and more apparent that Vince only cares about Roman as his top draw regardless of what the crowd identify him as. He could be a top heel and Vince will push him like a babyface like he would The Rock during The Rock/Austin build to Mania 17

Minor topics also include how stars like Dolph Ziggler work too fast in front of more non-experienced rookies making the matches seem either formulaic or just downright bad.
From a couple of recent F4W-Observer podcast shows.

I agree with him on Crews and Corbin.

I'm trying to find Crews interesting but he is currently quite bland, but give the man a gimmick and all will be well. Right now, he just reminds me of a smaller, happier Bobby Lashley.

As for Corbin, I wouldn't say he was painfully mediocre, I'd say he was painfully boring. He could really benefit from either a gimmick change or going back to NXT.

Here's an idea. Turn Ziggler Heel and put him in programs with people capable of wrestling at his level. I want to see him fight Sami Zayn and AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro. Not Baron Corbin for the 80th time.

I know Ziggler has gotten stale but FFS the man is one of the best in-ring talents they have had in the last decade and he has charisma coming out of his whatever.

Ziggler is so fucking stale right now. I'd consider sending him away to spread his wings somewhere else for a little while. The dude just gets nothing by winning and gives nothing by losing. The wick on that candle is out.

Maybe a heel turn would help. I was hoping they were going that way with the groin kick to Corbin that week on RAW. Nope. Cena vs. Ziggler could be a great feud. Could be.

It may be that they had Stardust, etc. material coming out from a third-party (a Mattel action figure, for example) and offered him a deal so legally, they can move forward with that. There's been no talk of Rhodes returning as a full-time performer as he's seeking to work specific, big matches on the independent level and we've heard he's already being represented in Hollywood for potential acting world.

The story started when Angle was on Mark Madden's Pittsburgh radio show on Monday and said that Paul Levesque had called him, but that no deal was in place. Although nobody officially said it, the story grew to a point where people said that a deal was done with a start date even listed.
Being speculated around the net that Vince was very likely the person who ended any chance of the talks going further than just simply Triple H wanting to "open the door" for a future Angle return or a checkup on his well-being.

He was booked to be low on cards and perhaps work to middle. But the reaction at the Royal Rumble, and even more so at the house shows where he was getting either the first or second best reaction even with almost no WWE television, changed the perception of him and now he’s considered one of the company’s five top regular stars.

" This is . . . the only singles match between these 2 ever to make tape. 1978 Dusty is loaded with charisma and is in pretty good shape. He even throws an awesome drop kick in this. I enjoyed early in the match Brody's stooging. Dusty's charisma carried this.

Some details on why the WWE pulled back plans for 7 guys to be in the MitB and why they didn't care about putting back the 7th person when given the chance.

Recently on Sam Roberts' Wrestling Podcast, actor and former WWE writer, Freddie Prinze, Jr. discussed his stint with professional wrestling's biggest promotion. Prinze talked about picking the brain of 'Double A' Arn Anderson, convincing Vince McMahon to drop his promo class for WWE talents in favor of Prinze's acting workshop, and John Cena disrupting his classes ...

Apparently, Cena could not see the benefit of Prinze's acting class and he would intentionally disrupt it. Prinze admitted that Cena was tough on him and he does not know whether he ever truly gained Cena's respect.

"I would be running an acting workshop and he would just come in and interrupt it and sort of take over the room. And I'm like, 'hold up, man.' I said, 'let's go talk outside'. So he came outside and he gave me this speech, and I respect his view. He goes, 'look, I may be a neanderthal' and he said, 'but you either got it or you don't'. And I said, 'look, I agree, philosophically, to a certain point.' I said, 'but you can get better or worse at something depending on how hard you work at it.' I said, 'you don't need my help. I'm not writing for you. But they do, so let me do my job. I'll let you do your job and that'll be that.' And it wasn't."
According to Prince, Vince's idea of teaching promo skills was to just let wrestlers do improv but not bothering to teach them the skills needed to make it actually work. Prince wanted to ease them into that style by getting them used to an acting style at first. http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/...reddie-prinze/

Trevor Mann (Ricochet/Prince Puma) still hasn’t signed the new multiyear deal offered by Lucha Underground. I guess he pretty much has a deadline this weekend to make a decision since
SPOILER: show
Johnny Mundo vs. Prince Puma is the title match at Ultimate Lucha Tres which will be taped on 6/26, with the stips that Puma has to retire if he doesn’t win the title. So they’ve booked themselves into a corner in the sense either Puma wins while not under contract for next season, which makes no sense, or he loses. And while they can certainly violate the stip since guys here come back from the dead, given what they are offering him, it’s probably not a match that it would make sense for him to lose.
He’s got a significant money offer, believed to be for another four or five seasons, which would still allow him to work New Japan and indies. According to those close to the situation, with the guaranteed money here and what he could make with New Japan and indies, he’d be one of the highest paid non WWE talents in the business, behind only people like Mysterio, the Hardys and Tanahashi. WWE is said to want him bad, although those close to the situation believe they wouldn’t guarantee him anywhere close to what it’s a lock he’d be making on this deal, and he can work limited dates on his own schedule as opposed to fulltime

It might actually be better for Ricochet to stay on the independent scene. Between Lucha Underground and New Japan he can continue to have his stock raise. I'd try and talk Lucha Underground into season-by-season deals though.

WWE ended up confirming the leaked list as being true on their website in regards to the rumor of Clash of Champions replacing Night of Champions.

What I CAN control is my own life, and my life isn't only wrestling. I do not expect to be in wrestling much longer. I AM excited about my future. Thank you.

As noted, this week on UFC Unfiltered hosts Matt Serra and Jim Norton welcomed WWE Superstar turned UFC Fighter, CM Punk, to the show. Among other things, Punk discussed the differences between WWE and UFC and he talked about how the best talkers in WWE history improvise their promos ...

Moreover, Punk admitted that he would work lighter on talents he did not like because he wanted to avoid being accused of purposely hitting people harder than necessary.

"The people you actually wind up beating the s--t out of, those are your friends. If I was wrestling a guy I didn't like, I would make sure to go out of my way to not f--king stiff the guy because then there's a problem because he's like, 'oh, you did that on purpose'. If I f--king clock my friend in the face or kick him in the nuts or step on his hand or something like that, it's just funny. You can laugh about it afterwards." ...

In Punk's view, the best professional wrestling promos are improvised. While some performers need to be scripted, others should be given the freedom to be themselves.

"I think the good ones, the interviews and the promos people remember, those are improv. Now, [professional] wrestling's just overscripted to death. It's almost like they have a chokehold on it. Some guys need to operate that way and I feel like some people need to let loose and be themselves. You've got a whole room of guys writing for you. They don't know you. They don't know where you're coming from. They don't know your perspective or your character and stuff like that. And if you're out there being disingenuous and saying words that three other people wrote, I always felt that the crowd could tell and then they're going to pay attention to their phones or s--t on whatever segment you're in. So yeah, I was always a fan of just kind of doing my own thing."
So all those nut shots Taker gave to Lesnar was just his way of being friendly . Link with more highlights and the podcast itself: http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/...-too-scripted/

Quote:
Bret “The Hitman” Hart spoke about Roman Reigns‘ WWE suspension today in the latest episode of The Sharpshooter Podcast on Bret Hart Radio ...

On whether or not he was surprised by the news of Roman Reigns’ WWE suspension:

BH: I am surprised. I was kind of hoping he could somehow make a good run at being champion. I think in a lot of ways he never got the fair shake that he deserved. Failing the wellness policy could be a number of things. If it was for steroids or something like that… muscle enhancement, or whatever you want to call it. If it was that category or not. I don’t think he needed it, for one. It is what it is as a policy. I’m all behind the policy. There doesn’t need to be any of that in wrestling. I don’t know if there is a double standard where some guys are allowed to take certain things and some guys aren’t. There’s sort of a thin line between being found guilty and being found innocent. I have no idea. As far as I know the drug policy in WWE is pretty legit. As far as I know, unless someone tells me otherwise, everybody is tested. You have to know you’re going to get tested so what are you ever going to get dirty for? It turns out you get tested and it’s steroids or let’s say it’s something as minuscule as having a toke on a joint at a birthday party. It could be something really small or insignificant. The fact that they sacked him over it is kind of a shock to me. The rules are what they are. In the 90s when I was champion and they started a very serious drug policy. Everybody had to comply. Including Lex Luger and the bodybuilders. They had to comply to it. It was the same thing. You just can’t take any chances. Where it is today and how intense it is. I know that drug test is pretty intense. They test you for everything from pills to… just about everything.

Viewership dropped 11 percent from last week, showing the big gain caused by the post-Money in the Bank buzz didn't sustain ...

The three hours were:

8 p.m. 3.10 million viewers
9 p.m. 3.17 million viewers
10 p.m. 3.01 million viewers
The good news being the hourly drops being very small while the bad news being very weak starting numbers and down by around 374k viewers compared to last week. In terms of historical stuff, same week last year had between 300k to 500k more viewers for hours. Observer's been teasing for a while about next week likely going to break the record for lowest ever RAW show due it being on July 4th.

Pretty much confirms suspicions around the net the WWE is doing everything to ensure Reigns suspension gets forgotten as soon as possible and him getting the Orton treatment when it comes to how this might not affect his career as badly as it did for others.

Stephanie McMahon says Brock Lesnar is in one of the most unique positions of any WWE star. In an interview with Business Insider conducted last week at the Cannes Lions festival in France, Stephanie talked about Lesnar returning to the UFC octagon while still under contract with WWE.

Stephanie says the UFC and WWE are not competitors because one is competitive sport and one is entertainment. Stephanie says WWE is more like a Hollywood production than a sport, and WWE has an advantage as far as television goes because they can script their protagonists and antagonists.

“UFC, they can make a big star but the second that person loses, they lose credibility, and how do you continue to make that star rise?” Stephanie said. “So I think [WWE has] the best of both worlds and the opportunity to tell the stories in the way we want to tell them.”

Given his history as a writer and authority figure on the SmackDown, he was asked about assuming the General Manager role or even rejoining the Creative team.

Doesn’t sound like he’s interested in either role, to say the least:

Oh I certainly hope not. General Manager is a role I had a blast with, but I would prefer to stay in the role that I have had for the past four years, which is to serve as the advocate for Brock Lesnar.

I don't think I'm in the consideration to be even close to the writing staff in today's WWE corporate environment. Nor have I requested to be on the writing staff in today's WWE environment. I have a primo gig: I serve as the advocate for Brock Lesnar and I happen to be able to do that on television as well, and I think WWE is best served with me in that role. The job of a writer in WWE is a very demanding job, I don't think it's for a father of two children who are just getting into their teenage years. It is a young man's job: 24/7, 365 commitment for as long as you can continue to match the work ethic of the chairman and that's a daunting task to begin with.

There have been some rumors over the last week about Hulk Hogan’s status with WWE and we can confirm that he now considered to be back on good terms with the company.

Vince McMahon and other top WWE officials are open to bringing Hogan back in again.

No word yet on how he may return but one source expected him to be eased back in. It was also noted that Hogan still equals money and some officials have been waiting for the right time to bring Hogan back into the spotlight.

PWTorch is reporting that Vince Mcmahon wants to tell a redemption story with Reigns coming back better than ever after being suspended due to violating the wellness policy.

McMahon believes if he creates the story the way he wants to tell it the fans will finally buy into the character, universally. As opposed to the mixed reaction the former champion is receiving now.
While the story was debunked by those with paid PWTorch subs, Observer did tease at Vince and the WWE are currently considering ways to spin the bad news into something positive for Reigns in the future.

  • His return wasn't good from the very beginning. They wanted him to come back as a babyface where he wanted to return as a heel.
  • He argued with Vince and creative everyday he was there.
  • He felt super unsatisfied with his return. Says it broke his heart because he had been thinking about his return for years. When he left, he wanted to come back and do SummerSlam, around the time Guardians was coming out. He talked to Steph and Hunter about doing SummerSlam because Guardians would be the #1 film at the box office. They kinda had a snickered and went "Yea, we don't even know if the movie is gonna be any good."
  • He says they told Daniel Bryan not to sell all of his injuries at Mania and kinda buried the shit out of them. Pissed him off and hated that Shield split up literally the night after making them look like a million dollars. Says that they should've had Shield continue their run with The Wyatts until everyone was sick of seeing them.
  • He says he struggled early in his career so hard with promos because people wrote stuff for him instead of bullet points. He was always a shy person and public speaking was terrifying to him. He would go up to Vince or Hayes and asked what point they wanted to get across and then winged it and thats when he got good.
  • He noticed that when WWE films started, John Cena was receiving movie roles and not him. He asked if there was any opportunity for him to act in WWE films and they showed no interest. He then decided to go outside the company and audition and the answer was "You are our property. Get dressed and get to work." He just felt it was unfair to him career-wise and financially and he wasn't content with that and gave them a year's notice.
  • On his last day with WWE, when he left the first time, it put everything in perceptive. Few people said goodbye and thank you to him. Then security escorted him out of the door. No keep in touch or see you later. He left there with a broken back on his last match with Cena.

Recently on The Steve Austin Show with guest Vince Russo, the self-professed global icon and national treasure, Steve Austin, discussed the current state of WWE ...

According to 'The Bionic Redneck', WWE lacks long range booking plans as well as continuity in storylines.

"There [are] just no interwoven storylines, which carries through the course of a Monday Night RAW where something, a seed is planted at the beginning of a Monday Night RAW and threaded through the entire show. It's just match after match, segment, or in-ring segment, skit, whatever you want to call it, backstage promo."

Austin professed that times have changed since The Attitude Era, where there was a two or three person writing team and agents or producers were not getting involved in putting matches together as much. A lack of trust on the part of Vince McMahon may be the reason for the current setup.

"I remember in the match where I wrestled Bret Hart at WrestleMania 13 in Chicago [Illinois], I was going to pass out in the Sharpshooter in a pool of blood and we go into the finish room and that's all we get. 'Hey Steve, you're going to do the honors today and you're going to pass out in the Sharpshooter.' Didn't say anything about blood. That was to come later. So, we listen to the orders from our leader and I said, 'okay' and of course Bret was over. And Bret was a great business man and a guy I have a lot of respect for. So we walked out of the room. And so, my point is, me and Bret were going to discuss different parts of the match and a little bit of color. And I would cycle back into Vince's room and say, 'hey Vince, are you sure about this finish?' He goes, 'God dang, Steve. I'm telling you it'll work.' I said, 'okay. Good enough.'

"And so, my point is, he gave us a directive, he gave us the finish, and he trusted us to go out there and execute everything. No agent, nobody helped Bret and I with that match. We went out there, we had a little conversation. There was a fishbone of events and the rest was called on the fly and we executed with extreme precision, probably the only real double turn done in the history of WWE that I know of at that high of a level. And there was work on the backend for both of us, but it was trust" ...

Similarly, Austin stated that the so-called 'Reality Era' lacks realism.

"They call it the reality era, but it's anything but reality. And on the other note, going into unknown territory or uncharted waters, back in the day, man, whether you're a fan or not of some of the storylines or angles we were shooting, they were edgy as hell and we weren't afraid to push into those uncharted waters or territories. And if you're afraid to do that, if you're afraid to try to grow, if you're afraid to take a chance as a company, whether you're publicly traded or not, then you're failing to live up to your potential as a company! I mean, because that's what the entertainment business is. If wrestling falls under the entertainment umbrella, people need to push the envelope!"

Cena has been the face of WWE for well over a decade, which means he’s seen a lot of talent come and go. Cena feels that WWE’s current roster is stacked with more talent than ever and sees a few performers in particular who have what it takes to make an impact with the audience.

“I look at Enzo Amore and Big Cass only because they are so immediately identifiable as characters,” Cena said. “It kind of reminds me when I was doing hip-hop piece of my persona. I like that because Enzo is not necessarily a typical mold of, ‘Hey, this is going to be awesome.’ But even back in his early days in NXT, he caught my attention.”

... As for which WWE Superstars he wants to work with, Cena named his heir apparent, Roman Reigns.

“I know that I always kind of test myself, whether it’s new superstars or established superstars, and I know Roman Reigns has carved up quite a niche for himself and he has all the attributes to be a successful WWE superstar for some time to come,” he said. “I’ve heard he’s good. I’d like to find out how good he is.”

That's all wrong, according to this anyway.

http://www.wwe.com/article/shortest-...694552=1-title

I thought Andre The Giant's reign was the shortest so I checked it out and it turns out that it is considered the shortest, with Rollins' second reign now being second shortest after taking that spot from Yokozuna's first reign by six seconds.

So with that, I also don't know where they're getting Bryan's reign being the "previous record" from too. According to WWE.com, his reign is nowhere near the shortest reign.

Prospective WWE talent should sure to clean out social media accounts of anything that could be embarrassing

They are also specifically targeting talent from Lucha Underground that can contractually leave.

The WWE dropped an attempt to register Balor Club for marketing purposes on 6/22. Evidently Baylor University had opposed the name. As noted before, they had also attempted to register Legion of Doom to be the name for an NXT group with Paul Ellering, Gzim Selmani and Sunny Dhinsa. They also dropped that and are staying with Authors of Pain

This was the third operation on the same shoulder and they did an extensive surgery with the hope it will fix the problem so it wasn’t as simple a recovery as in previous operations. There is still a neck issue but the doctors told him a few months ago he doesn’t need the neck surgery right now

Bret “The Hitman” Hart spoke about Curtis Axel’s current role and push in WWE yesterday on the latest episode of The Sharpshooter Podcast on Bret Hart Radio.

On what Bret thinks of the current push of Curtis Axel in WWE:

BH: I wish they would do so much more with Axel. Curt’s kid. It’s just such a shame.

On why he thinks WWE doesn’t play off of Curtis’ legacy as Mr. Perfect’s son more:

BH: I’ve never understood it from the beginning. Even the name McGillicutty or whatever that gimmick was. I just seems almost like impossible odds to turn that in to any kind of successful storyline. What do you do with that? It never made a lot of sense to me. I think that he’s really a wasted talent. I think he’s a real talent. He’s every bit the athlete and the performer that his Dad was. I just always thought that he was a little bit like Cody Rhodes where it’s like they never quite gave him the right things to book him to be the star that he was.
