I'm reading up on it now and apparently Hunico got upset at Drew McIntyre for shaking hands with the top guys and not the shit-kickers, and Sheamus took exception to Sin Cara taking exception. Sheamus told Sin Cara/Hunico to move from a place he was stretching because Sheamus is more important than him, threw a punch at Sin Cara/Hunico, and got his leg swept and started getting punched by Sin Cara/Hunico and then tried to play it off like he was just joking with the guy.

Apparently the Sheamus/Yoshi Tatsu story, which I also heard was about an unwashed protein shake bottle or something, was actually about money. Sheamus owed Tatsu and didn't pay him back, so Tatsu slapped the shit out of Sheamus and made him cry and then got his money back. Apparently Tatsu felt bad about embarrassing Sheamus like that, but felt it was a measure he needed to go to at the time.

Just searched for that myself and was about to post it.

Overall, the image I'm getting of Sheamus from these stories is that he can be massive dick at times and act like some kind of tough guy, but it's all show as he can't seem to fight to save himself and always gets his ass handed to him.

Usually from guys way smaller than him.

The number was very slightly ahead of the 3.13 million viewers Raw did the night prior, but it figured to be since the show had been hyped for weeks and was considered the most important television show in months.
First time since 2003 Smackdown managed to beat RAW in ratings for a week.

We’re told he would have also announced that Shane McMahon and Stephanie McMahon would continue running the flagship show and Bryan would’ve butt heads with them leading to the draft.

No word on why the storyline was altered — or when Mick Foley was brought into the picture — but as usual, plans can change at the drop of a dime in WWE.

Anytime something like that comes out, it certainly affects your perception of the event. There’s no way that people aren’t going to perceive Brock Lesnar differently, and when something like this happens, you set yourself a long, hard road ahead of you, and Brock’s got a long, hard road ahead of him.”

Ospreay is expected to join the EVOLVE roster for sporadic dates when he is available with a busy international schedule. Ospreay will still be able to work U.S. indies, like PWG, per WWNLive’s booking arrangement.

Ospreay already has an exclusive international deal with New Japan, who are currently working with Ring of Honor. But, ROH is unable to use Ospreay as part of the ROH-NJPW relationship because of Ospreay’s deal with WWNLive.

Heyman not wanting to be among the Creative staff for the new Brand Split era may or may not have played a role in no new deal being done.

He praised Vince McMahon and claimed, among other things, that Vince takes care of guys and pays them enough to live long after they are retired and all he asks is they come to WrestleMania and sign autographs once a year. He was furious at the suit, but inadvertently, by saying he had so many concussions that he never had evaluated, he probably did more harm than good. Plus, his claiming that Vince takes care of all the ex-wrestlers out of the goodness of his heart is ridiculous. Guys get royalties for merchandise sold or being in DVDs, and the amount varies greatly, but the idea he pays everyone's bills for a year and all they have to do is come to Mania once a year, and now they are suing him is such malarkey and that he said it on ESPN is really speaking without thinking.

With the recent brand-extension, it’s still not entirely clear what will determine which roster Bella gets added to upon her return or if an additional title will eventually be added to the division.

None of these names have signed contracts yet because there is all the background work and medicals that still need to be done, but all are in that process. What will be tough for Dorada is that he’s coming in speaking almost no English but he’s the kind of a guy who can get over pretty well on the NXT tour, as could Alexander since he comes in with ROH credibility.

A lot of the undercard talent is looking at leaving and AAA is starting to use talent that will pretty much work almost free like Dave the Clown.
Besides talent, some people in management are also expected to be leaving due to money issues. AAA was expecting Lucha Underground to be making money by now and since it hasn't, its been affecting their own finances negatively.

Some other sheet news includes:
  • PWI thinks the reason the WWE drafted both Cena and Orton to the same show was them wanting the younger audience to start watching Smackdown more than RAW since RAW traditionally favors the older audience due to the late airing times.
  • Roman Reigns Wellness suspension officially ended today.
  • According to a recent episode of the Gerweck Report podcast, Shelton Benjamin and MVP are expected to be signing WWE deals soon for the new Brand Split era.
  • Kofi Kingston revealed on Twitter New Day will be getting Funko figurines as merchandise later this year and exclusive to Toys'R'Us. https://twitter.com/TrueKofi/status/756233339846156288
  • Paige and Del Rio are currently rumored to be breaking up as a couple likely due to the WWE Draft after Paige recently purged all photos of Del Rio from her Instagram account.
  • According to the Observer, Sin Cara and Simon Gotch's backstage fight ended up occurring at catering and was pretty much a one-sided fight in favor of Sin Cara. Also according to F4W, Sin Cara is now 4-0 in fights involving WWE wrestlers.
  • Jeff Hardy is currently teasing he'd like to return to the WWE once his TNA contract expires early next year.
  • Samoa Joe is currently rumored to have suffered an elbow injury recently.

Doesn't surprise me. They probably want Indian talent. I'd wait until Drew McIntyre is free to reform 3MB though.

I'd rather see Kalisto on RAW and Sin Cara on SmackDown. I also want Sami Zayn on SmackDown, but I have a feeling that might happen after losing a Loser Leaves RAW match with Owens at SummerSlam.

The WWE should sign Charlie Haas to team with Shelton Benjamin against American Alpha on SmackDown. MVP can be the mouthpiece for Jack Swagger & Mark Henry and be an occasional singles guy.

Not completely. He still does the occasional indy. He just left ROH because they were being turds. Becky Lynch was also retired at one point.

I do like Sin Cara.

Sure, I'd prefer to see Hunico, but I won't complain.

The guy has a job and I can see him wrestle, albeit somewhat rarely.

Everyone's a winner is some way or another.

Currently WWE is being sued by 53 former performers for compensation due to injuries suffered while working for WWE. Coachmen was speaking on ESPN in defense of WWE.

I have said all along that I felt the best course of action was to suspend Brock right away so that he would be available to wrestle at SummerSlam against Randy Orton and if it later came out that the test was a false positive or if Brock failed for something that WWE didn’t test for, they could retract the suspension. Instead, by taking no action they open themselves up to a lot of uneasy questions and with the Investor Conference Call next Thursday and the build for SummerSlam meaning more media coverage of WWE, I would expect that they will be asked. I just hope WWE’s answer is not that Brock is not under the standard talent contract and thus is not subject to testing. I don’t think that answer will go over well if they choose to go in that direction and it would certainly then beg the follow up, “Who else in the company is not subject to testing?” If it comes out that he failed for clomiphene, as has been reported elsewhere, WWE could always suspend him then, but he would miss the show. Clomiphene is on the WWE Wellness list of banned substances.

At the moment, Sin Cara hasn't been punsihed for his part of the fight nor does it seem like he will.

Rumors have arisen that WWE superstars Paige & Alberto Del Rio may no longer be dating ...

According to Daily Wrestling News, Paige and Del Rio were reportedly upset about the result of the draft, which many took to be a sign that they are angry at Vince McMahon for splitting them apart.

Adding fuel to the fire, on Thursday morning, a user observed that Paige had deleted all photos of Alberto Del Rio from her Instagram page. Others noted that Paige has in the past deleted Instagram photos following a breakup, as when she and guitar player Kevin Skaff split last year.

Given the conflicting schedules of Raw and SmackDown, it would make a lot of sense for Paige and Del Rio to break up, realizing that a relationship will be difficult to maintain given their hectic schedules and minimal days off. Some, however, have speculated that Del Rio could be traded to Raw or Paige could be traded to SmackDown; as noted by WrestleZone, Booker T implied on the SmackDown pre-show on Tuesday that performers could be traded between the shows.

Former WWE World Champion Kevin Nash recently appeared on Vince Russo's podcast on Podcast One. During the interview, he discussed a potential WWE return.

"People always say would you ever come back to wrestling and I say to myself I'd come back and be [Dolph] Ziggler's Diesel because that's all he needs," Nash said. "Number one, he's not a face. Ziggler is a heel and I wouldn't have to say a word because he can talk. I've already had mine. But for the bigger guys, he needs somebody to stomp them. He does the same thing Shawn [Michaels] did. He takes every bump in the world. He takes every beating from the guys and then usually they beat him. But to me, his in ring performance is as good as anybody's in the business right now. He works so hard.

"I'd like to teach him the little things that Shawn learned. Yeah, he can fly back on every bump but every third one is kind of nice to take a punch and bounce off the ropes. I mean, the ropes are there for a reason."

He later said that the only two things on earth that he would return to wrestling are for the opportunity to manage Ziggler or to form a new NWO stable.

She has been apart of the pre-show panel for pay per views and NXT Takeover’s since finishing up filming Tough Enough in October 2015.

I'd be ok with Nash returning and managing a new NWO. Could hold off until Cody Hall comes in to WWE though. Ziggler, Styles, Owens, Xavier Woods, and Big Cass could all be potential candidates.

Not a good position for Simon Gotch to be in. For someone to actually be punished for a backstage fight, Gotch must have been a right dick.

I expect Jack Gallagher to be quietly slipped into the role of being Aiden English's new partner very soon.

They are pushing a Raw vs. SmackDown ratings theme and it would be a huge surprise if the SmackDown rating this week came close to Raw number. If it does, that would indicate stronger curiosity toward the brand split. Any number stronger than 2.7 million tonight should be considered a success.

The three hours from last night were:

8 p.m. 3.41 million
9 p.m. 3.35 million
10 p.m. 3.25 million

The WWE wellness policy requires that all talent “under contract to WWE who regularly perform in-ring services as a professional sports entertainer” undergo testing, but it doesn’t specify what constitutes regular performance.

That's an important number as traditionally, that's the amount of episodes that syndicators look for when trying to license series internationally into different markets, because you are guaranteed a huge run of episodes. The third season will debut later this year on The El Rey Network.

As far as a fourth season, we are told there are plans to do one and the hope is to film sometime late Fall/early winter as long as logistics are worked out. One person told me they believed the series might begin filming again in November, but nothing is 100% confirmed in that regard.
Season 3 is currently rumored to be starting around September 10.

Good news though, we’ve learned he’s expected to take them up on the offer sometime next year.

Additionally, one well-placed source says contract offers have also been extended to TJ Perkins, Cedric Alexander, Noam Dar and Akira Tozawa. If all goes to plan, they’ll report for duty in September-October.

According to PWTorch, Kota Ibushi and Gran Metallik have inked deals as well. Ibushi has since done an interview though saying he hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet.

And lastly, tweets from Johnny Gargano and Tommasso Ciampa seem to suggest that both will soon be exclusive to WWE after finishing up their final indie appearances this summer.





Some other sheet news includes:
  • Nakamura was revealed to be this Friday's guest for the Talk Is Jericho podcast show.
  • Fox Sports recently had an article about Bayley. http://www.foxsports.com/wwe/story/w...t-asuka-072516
  • Accordito PWI, Dudley Boys have agreed on a new deal with the WWE. Their previous contract was just for 1 year which would have expired next month.
  • According to the Observer, Paul Heyman current demands for a new contract includes a lot less dates. Probably due to other projects he has going on outside of the WWE at the moment.

I don't watch the Cruiserweight Classic, so can someone please tell me what the whole point of it is?

Is it a tournament where the winner wins something? Something like a WWE contract or the returning Cruiserweight Championship?

If it is for a contract, then what is the whole point of actually staging the tournament if nine of the entrants are going to be offered contracts anyway?

Triple H and/or WWE felt like having a random tournament with the idea now to help out the new Brand Split era. Only real downside is the two stars the WWE wanted to keep the most likely won't be signing deals after its done.

Also some new stuff for the Network to have to help sway people to subscribe to it.

Same as any other tournament in japan or the indies. To showcase great wrestling. The winner will also get quite a rub from it and inevitably be signed.

Even though it lost a chunk of viewers, still seen as a postivie considering its higher than what the usual Smackdown average was during the taped era on the USA Network. For some reference, Smackdown was averaging between 2.2 to 2.4 million since moving to the USA Network.

There have been a number of other former talents who have been talked about internally and/or contacted about returning, including Melina, MVP, Carlito and Tommy Dreamer, although whether they will be returning remains to be seen. Another name that has been brought up has been Stevie Richards, who recently finished a stint as a Guest Coach at the WWE Performance Center.

None. His mental status was determined in a Pennsylvania court room and is not subject to the civil lawsuit. They are entirely separate things.
From PWI's weekly Q&A sessions on how Snuka getting involved in the concussion lawsuit could affect his own murder trial status.

Quote:
Dorada was interviewed on CMLL’s Facebook, where WWE came up but not the contract. The Dorada/WWE situation came up on Super Libre, where they said Dorada had not signed but would be there are rumors he’d be back in WWE in August. Those aren’t really rumors, he’s going to be on the August 26th CWC taping (tournament match or not.) No one is allowed to publicly admit or acknowledge they’ve been signed by WWE until WWE announces it – that’s why the show I went to Saturday had wrestlers talking about it being their last match there but not mentioning WWE at all.
Would explain the contradictory reports going around regarding the CWC wrestlers signing deals or not.


Some other sheet news includes:
  • Recent rumor going around the net involves one of the Usos being in trouble with management after being caught sniffing Becky Lynch's hair during this week's RAW. Supposedly Lynch uses an orange scent for her hair which might explain why it happened.
  • During a recent interview with the Calgary Eyeopener, Lance Storm trashed everyone involved suing the WWE in the recent concussion lawsuit. He implied its the wrestlers fault they got hurt since wrestling is meant to be a performance art than a sport. However he did reveal he has been involved with CTE studies and already has his brain signed away for more research when he passes away. http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/c...tudy-1.3695654
  • In a "WWE Did You Know" type fact, today is Triple H's 47th birthday.
  • During a recent weekly Q&A session, PWI thinks everyone listed in the current concussion lawsuit against the WWE will end up getting blacklist by the company and possible future Hall of Fame considerations.
  • For those interested, the guy who Braun Strowman squashed during this week's RAW episode had an interview with website Today's Powerbomb on how its like to be a local jobber in the WWE. http://www.todayspowerbomb.com/wwe/p...al-jobber-wwe/
  • Wrestling Observer debunking rumors that Triple H played a big role in the changes to RAW this week by saying Vince still has full control over the booking and direction for the brand. https://twitter.com/davemeltzerWON/s...41624761978880
  • Website Deadspin recently had an article debating on why the Stone Cold Stunner is the most important wrestling move ever in history. http://deadspin.com/the-stone-cold-s...ing-1566797510

Tommy Dreamer and Stevie Richards...what will they really bring? I mean, good for them earning paychecks again -- I'm especially high on Richards -- but is anyone really going to feel their watching validated by the return of a guy who couldn't win matches in 1999?
