Orton wasn’t told until he got to the arena, as he was planning for a usual main event.

The original idea was to be a total destruction for Lesnar, where Orton would be on the ground bleeding. It was supposed to look like Lesnar “went against the script” on him and hurt him. There would be confusion and the match would end, with Orton seemingly concussed and the referee stopping the match....

There will be people denying this most likely, because they have to, but Orton was told that Lesnar knew how to graze him with his elbow to open up a cut without hurting him and was told that was what would happen in the match. As it turned out, Lesnar elbowed the hell out of him, and threw some stiff punches, and Orton was bleeding like crazy from a cut that needed ten staples to close. Orton stayed down and was acting like he was knocked out, as he was supposed to. Medical personnel and the referee acted confused, because they were. I don’t know this as a fact, but I believe the referee knew going in that Lesnar was winning, but if he did, was given a different finish, because the fact Lesnar was going over was not kept secret...

One person noted that Orton was told to do it, but wasn’t expecting it to be the way it was. He wasn’t going to complain publicly about it but also was never going to do that kind of a favor again and wasn’t particularly thrilled

Whether he would want to give up the financial security (which seems to mean less to him than for most, as he’s seemingly happier being an artist on his own terms than being rich) of a guaranteed WWE deal is something else, although he could make huge money away from WWE. It wouldn’t surprise me if he could make more away from WWE as a wrestler than his downside in WWE without the money you make when you wrestle as the main event level, plus he’d make all his merch money outside as opposed to just a small percentage of it.
Probably depends if the WWE still sees his contract as another Rey Mysterio type where its frozen unless he hits very strict requirements. If that is the case, WWE could technically add as much time as they wanted till they no longer see a need for him or his potential drawing power for other companies is no longer seen as a threat.

In the new Observer, in the note on the taking down of gifs from SummerSlam by WWE, this is technically how it was explained to me. WWE hired a third party vendor, SMTS, to remove any streaming video from the show and SMTS was able to match any WWE copyrighted content that was on Twitter and the accounts were suspended.

Initially signing with WWE after departing TNA and making the reverse jump:
"I didn't really know what to expect. Granted it was a time where you kind of had to test the waters and what was worse than that was the people that had made the jump never fared to well. It was a risky thing to do because I didn't know what to expect and the guys that had been there didn't fare well and that was not by any fault of their own it was just the way it worked out."

First impressions of WWE:

"They made a big deal about it when I first came in and now to know that it was all crap. I remember talking to Hunter and I talked to Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker and it seemed like my early days there, it felt like it was going to go somewhere."

The portrayal of Braden Walker by the company:

"When they debuted me, nobody knew who Braden Walker was and I think some people would know who I was or with a name change, I could deal with that. I knew that there was a good chance that they weren't going to use "Wildcat" but the way they presented me was like a bag of crap. There was nothing for the people to care. Some of these bad one liners they were giving me and vignettes were ridiculous, it was just a bad combination. It is hard to find the words. What I saw there, I wasn't impressed. It was a billion dollar company and they didn't know what the hell they were doing from one minute to the next."

  1. According to a recent episode of the Observer Radio show, wrestlers do not get any royalties from their entrance songs bought on online stores and instead their cut goes to the writer of the song.
  2. Also according to the Observer, WWE recently dropped plans on making Becky the top Women's star on Smackdown in favor of Nikki Bella. Also revealed Nikki is following Cena's route of becoming a part timer in regards to working a lot less house shows from now on.
  3. EVOLVE announced they have recently hired Joey Styles to a deal.
  4. For those interested, WWE has started to sell the American Alphas "Ready, Willing, Gable" hand towels for $5 each. http://shop.wwe.com/american-alpha-r...el/W12117.html

Originally Raw was to get the real title and Smackdown would get the made up title (which Styles was to have won). The Reigns drug test failure changed all the plans and the decision was to have another babyface put in the top position on Raw and Reigns be moved down as punishment. The Raw face side was very weak as with the exception of part-timers Lesnar and Show, the top faces were Cesaro and Zayn. Rather than go with them, since Cesaro has been typecast at a certain level and even though Zayn did beat Owens, clearly the decision was made not to go with him, they decided to instantly make Balor the top guy, at least until they go back to Reigns. Of course now everything is up in the air

If you look at what Vince McMahon has accomplished in all of his years, and to still be on top, still doing it, the guy’s got enough money, he’s in it 'cause he loves it, he’s in it 'cause he’s passionate about it.”

White was asked what it has been like to negotiate with WWE, "I would say that this last Brock deal, and when Ronda went over and did the WWE WrestleMania, I’d say those were the two, out of all the years of dealing with Vince and everybody, those were probably the two best experiences. I think that Vince, and definitely Stephanie and Triple H, Stephanie and Triple H are always great, always great, always cool to work with, Vince has been very difficult in the past, but in the last several years he’s been much better.”

But White made sure to note that he respects McMahon, “He’s a f*cking maniac, he’s an animal, he’s a competitor, he wants to win, and you know, that’s his nature, and I respect it.”

Bryan said: "The most tragic part, that kind of stuff happens... the most tragic part to me is it happens as soon as he gets up here. And I think one of the things that really upsets me about the whole situation is that Finn Balor should’ve been up here a year and a half ago ...

So, he’s in the prime of his career right now, like he just turned 35 the day he debuted on Raw. Right? Like, he should’ve been here a year and a half ago. Samoa Joe should already be here. Shinsuke Nakamura should already be here. Those are guys in their primes and they’re down on NXT right now, and they should be here... either on SmackDown Live or on Raw.

And the longer we wait, the more bumps they take, the more bruises they get, and the more susceptible they are to injury. Everybody knows there’s a finite number of hits you can take in your career, you don’t know what number that is. And the more times you take those hits down on NXT, the less hits you’re going to be able to take when you’re here.”

I was told that there was some insane material filmed and that TNA bumped up the budget from the last Final Deletion match, which featured Matt Hardy "deleting" Jeff Hardy on an episode of Impact Wrestling that received positive reviews for it's unique presentation and tongue-in-cheek campiness. The episode garnered 410,000 viewers, the highest audience for an initial broadcast of Impact Wrestling since the series debuted on Pop TV earlier this year.

Bo Dallas may be in some hot water.

Late Shift host Steven Bell posted on Twitter that former NXT Champion Bo Dallas was booted from WWE's flight from the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport to Mexico for being intoxicated. Bell said that he heard Dallas "very loudly singing the Lion King song" in the background while he spoke to his wife, in a situation you really can't make up.

When the pilot approached Bo Dallas, the WWE superstar reportedly told the him to "fuck himself," before echoing his sentiments to everyone else. The boarding staff would later confirm that Dallas was tossed for being intoxicated.

Police would later arrive at the terminal. There's no word on if Dallas was arrested or not, but the officers went on a search for the 26-year old talent. He was later found and escorted from the terminal. He also has wandered away from the area while the airport staff tried to book a later flight for him.

Dallas was seen before the incident drinking with one of the Usos and Charlotte in the airport bar, as they were heading for Mexico, where WWE is touring

Some other sheet news includes:
  • Next set of Cruiserweight Classic tournament tapings is occurring tonight with the Final Four to be revealed in the end.
  • The Headbangers recently teased on Facebook they are returning to the WWE soon for Smackdown's Tag Team championship tournament.
  • For those interested, WWE is currently selling a Mystery Box for $25 that contains five randomly picked t-shirts. http://shop.wwe.com/wwe-mystery-mens...r=...#start=27
  • Supposedly the rumor involving several more WWE wrestlers getting suspended for failing the Wellness tests is leaning towards being fake although could still happen after this weekend's set of shows. Also possible the WWE might stagger the suspensions so they don't lose everyone at once assuming its true. Recent track record for the source of the rumors isn't good though when it comes to breaking huge news.
  • In a "WWE Did You Know" type fact, today is the 17th anniversary of Smackdown's debut.
  • In a bit of somber news, the mother of child cancer patient Elijah/Drax Shadow revealed her son likely won't live past this year. Last year the WWE gave him an honorary WWE contract and his own wrestling name as part of a Make A Wish request. https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...other_says_he/

It's time for some Bo Dallas vignettes where he is seen sitting in a old saloon, filmed in close-up, having a conversation with someone off-screen.
"Things haven't exactly worked out the way I had planned."
"Are you going to tell them your last name isn't Dallas?" asks the grizzled voice.

The key is that the viewers cared about the Universal title match and it had a week of advertising directly ...

The three hours were:

8 p.m. 3.39 million viewers
9 p.m. 3.44 million viewers
10 p.m. 3.41 million viewers
They have one more week to beef up the numbers before Monday Night Football starts. Then pretty much until next May or June before no more real NFL/NBA Monday competition.

WWE may make the announcement shortly, but Rodriguez being removed from all house shows he had been advertised for, even after his suspension was over, was WWE's indication that he is leaving.

Sources say he and WWE have come to terms on a release, leaving him free to work in Mexico and internationally imminently. He would also be free to work in the U.S. in a few weeks.

The Wrestling Observer had reported for some time that issues with Rodriguez and WWE stemmed from creative problems, and that the chances were solid that he may leave the promotion. It was considered likely last week and now, it is said to be a done deal ...

According to sources close to the situation, Rodriguez was unhappy, claiming he was given empty promises when they brought him back last year for a surprise return. He indicated he was promised a main event push which didn't materialize.

Similar issues caused him to leave Lucha Underground, because he said he was promised the main event of Ultima Lucha and was mad because his match was not in that position. There were also financial issues with that promotion, but the WWE situation has no financial issues tied to it.

According to Dave Meltzer, WWE will announce the match today. The house show isn't currently scheduled to be a WWE Network special, but it would make sense for it to be given the profile of the match.

The match is scheduled for the day before Raw's Clash of Champions pay-per-view on September 25th in Indianapolis, IN. Neither Lesnar nor Orton are scheduled for the PPV, making the decision to put the match on a house show even stranger.

On the debut episode of his podcast released on Monday, Ryan "Ryback" Reeves opened up about what led to him leaving WWE ...

He said that he was never the company's guy and wondered why they put the Intercontinental Championship on him in 2015. After winning the title, he was presented with a new contract offer. Reeves said he wasn’t happy with the offer considering what he had done for the company.

But Reeves said he didn't leave because of monetary value of the offer. "Not about a money issue, just so everybody knows, I walked away from the WWE, the contract offer that I walked away from was a three-year $1.5 million contract.” Reeves said.

Reeves mentioned that there were other things he wasn't happy about. He said that there were merchandising opportunities that didn’t pan out and noted how expensive travel expenses were, saying the way professional wrestling has always done things isn’t always right.

Reeves said that he had been lied to at many times in his career about booking and other opportunities. He claimed that Vince McMahon told him that he would be the number one heel in the company and have the title put on him if he listened to McMahon and read his promos as they were scripted. Reeves also claimed that he was supposed to face AJ Styles at WrestleMania 32, with McMahon telling him that he would "squash that little twerp."

Though he was told that by McMahon, Reeves said that he didn't necessarily believe he would squash Styles given the way he was brought into the company.

That changed and Reeves would go on to face Kalisto on the WrestleMania 32 kickoff show. He said that he was set to sign a new contract but sent a revised offer to the company after not being happy about how he was handled.

On his last day at television, Reeves said he knew that WWE wasn't going to accept the revised offer and thought the booking of the show was intended to make him look bad before he left. He claimed he told Mark Carrano to take him off television, but didn't talk to McMahon because he had been lied to too many times before ...

He claimed that he was offered magazine covers but WWE wouldn't let him do them despite allowing other talent to. He said that WWE wanted Roman Reigns to appear on a cover instead of him at one point.

The confrontation between the two generated significant buzz online with many questioning how much of it was scripted. And in response to Coachman, Bryan finally answered the question.

“Very little, so I just knew that Miz was going to come up, we were just going to banter back and forth. But Miz and I have known each other for a long time, and we really know how to get like at each other’s nerves. I brought up the idea that he wrestled like a coward, and he knows I don’t like the way he wrestles, right? I just don’t like it; it’s not my thing. And I called him out on that. And then he called me out on something that’s very personal to me.”

Bryan said Miz knows he’s constantly having feelings of wanting to get back into the ring because he loves wrestling so much. But, Bryan says he knows it’s not a smart idea and his wife keeps him in check. Bryan reiterated his words from this week's edition of Talking Smack, saying he sometimes thinks Miz is right and he thinks of himself as a coward for not returning to wrestling.

Bryan noted that part of him wanted to punch Miz in the face during the segment, but he figured it wasn’t such a smart idea on live TV.

In regard to the TMZ comment, the website ran audio of the 911 call made when Dusty Rhodes, Cody's father, fell ill before being hospitalized and passing away last year.

The ESPN reference is in regard to a comment made by the cable network's Amin Elhassin, responding to a video of Kevin Owen's eight year old son reacting excitedly to his father's WWE Universal title win by writing, "Until someone told him it was scripted." The Tweet set off a firestorm of responses over the last 24 hours from fans of the business, many of whom Elhassin has responded to with insults. WWE has been providing ESPN with talent every Wednesday for Sportscenter.

Reeves claimed that deciding not to re-sign with the world's largest professional wrestling promotion was about creative and WWE limiting his opportunities to go his brand. Apparently, he and Triple H got heated during the course of their contract negotiations.

"Me and Hunter had many conversations in that last year and they were quite heated at times. And I would tell him, 'it's not about the money' and he goes, 'it sounds like it's completely about the money'. No, and he finally understood when we were finally done our last talk. It was about creative and it was about limiting me as a brand because I am responsible for my brand, the Ryback brand, the Feed Me More brand, that I believe so strongly in. And when I'm told that I have to go out there and lose in two minutes or not have any buildup for a pay-per-view match, which happened time and time again, when I'm not given opportunities to do promos and be myself, that's what truly bothers me."

Reeves added, "I think the wrestling business has been a certain way for so long, that just because they did some things a certain way, and people have gone with it for so long, that doesn't make it right. And I think it's time to start taking a look at things because the performers are the core of the brand. The WWE does not exist without the wrestlers and wrestlers still exist without the WWE. But the WWE is not where it is without its core, and that is the wrestlers."

She did not stay for the entire tapings, and the word is that she only cares about exiting without getting egg on her face.

Corgan still faces the same issues going forward, he is running a company that doesn’t create enough revenue to cover payroll and TV production, which is why he and Aroluxe had to invest in TNA in the first place. The company has also shown an inability to create profit off both live events and PPV for years.

If that's true, then that's utterly retarded. Instead of capitalizing on something that EVERYONE is talking about, they are going to punish those involved?

Baffling.

With the Daniel Bryan-Miz confrontation pretty much blown off on this past Tuesday's Smackdown, we've been asked why did it even happen and why was the situation dropped as quickly as it began. Well, while the scene was scripted by WWE for the 8/23 episode of "Talking Smack" in that Miz and Bryan were scheduled to banter on the show, it went in a direction that the company didn't expect thanks to improvisation on the part of Miz.

During an appearance on ESPN Sportscenter last night with Jonathan Coachman, Bryan explained that while the banter between the two was planned, where it went was not something Bryan knew about in advance. He noted that Miz knows how to push his buttons and was well aware of the feelings Bryan has had towards his February 2016 WWE-imposed retirement Bryan admitted that the nerves Miz hit were very real and played off of Bryan's own conflicts about whether he should remain with WWE (and stay retired) or take his chances elsewhere, risking his potential future health. Bryan also stated that he thought of legitimately throwing a punch to Miz to close the segment but given they were on live TV, felt it wasn't the smartest move. Instead, Bryan walked off to close the segment.

Bryan noted on the 8/30 episode of "Talking Smack" and again last night on Sportscenter that WWE intended to keep he and Miz far apart while on screen going further. Bryan praised Miz's promo that was cut after Bryan walked off the set and put over Miz's passion for pro wrestling. The unspoken implication was the interaction wasn't in WWE's plans and will likely be ignored going forward.

During the ESPN Sportscenter appearance, Bryan said that he has often talked off quitting WWE after seeing the reactions of the live crowds but his wife Brie will talk him out of it. Bryan also admitted that the brain testing that he underwent in New York, which led to he retirement earlier this year, after doing additional research, should not have been the determining factor in whether he retired. Bryan said that he feels 100% and that on nine out of ten days, he says to himself he's going to wrestle again but needs to convince others (and even himself on the tenth day) that it is safe for him to do so. While he enjoys being around the wrestlers and the action, it is hard to feel the energy of the audience and then just sit at ringside. He referred to the concussion issue as "subjective."
Some more details regarding the Bryan-Miz Talking Smack segment from last week and why WWE quickly pulled the plug on the potential storyline/feud.

Quote:
On this week’s episode of MSL & Sullivan, available on MLWradio.com, former ROH & EVOLVE commentator Mister Saint Laurent and former WCW matchmaker Kevin Sullivan discussed the romantic relationship between Alberto Del Rio and Paige. WWE has gone to great lengths to split up the couple and MSL revealed some of the previously undisclosed details.

“Mark Carano, who fans might know from Total Divas, kind of like the office liaison guy, approached Del Rio and Paige individually and harassed each of them about their relationship. It was indicated that the office wanted them to sever their romantic relationship.”

“A lot of people speculated if this was the reason [WWE] split them up in the draft and that’s definitely what happened. The company did not want them together. They split them up in the draft by design and they threatened to fire Paige if she didn’t break up with Del Rio.”

Because of that, the Meridian Centre in Niagara Falls (on the Canadian side), announced today that the 9/23 NXT event in their building has been canceled by WWE due to the announcement of the Takeover show. Niagara Falls is about 90 minutes from Toronto, so the company obviously doesn't want to do two shows that close together in such a short period of time.

Refunds will begin to be processed next week.

Also, the 9/22 show in Toronto and the 9/24 show in Kitchener have been canceled as well.

"Do me and Vince text? No, he's currently bankrolling a lawsuit against me, so I don't think he's going to be reaching out. 'Hey pal, how ya doing? I'm suing you, LOL!'"
Part of a recent UFC press conference CM Punk had for the lead up to UFC 203.

Quote:
During an appearance on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson talked about how Vince McMahon wasn't aware that Gallows was previously the Festus character in WWE back in 2007-2008. Here is what Anderson said:

"The best part of the Festus character is that we heard from Talent Relations, or the Head of Talent Relations is that Vince doesn’t even remember that he was Festus."

Anderson also said this to Gallows about what Mark Carano told Gallows:

"We go up to the Gorilla Position, and Mark Carano would say, I’m going to go tell Vince and remind him that you were Festus. I would say, don’t tell Vince, I need this run right now."

Gallows added the following:

"I don’t know if we’re even allowed to say the word, but my wife didn’t even know that I was Festus when I married her, which is real."

Dropping the Miz/Bryan angle and punishing them is dumb. That was money and people loved it. Miz should not be punished for delivering one of the best promos of the year.

There's no money in the angle if Bryan can't take bumps. It did what it was supposed to do. It created buzz and made The Miz look good. Now Dolph can lower to this feud and it's still a big deal that he did it.

If Bryan can't bump he shouldn't be involved in things like this. That's the shit I hate most about Stone Cold as the GM and Enforcer. He would stir shit, stun people every night and then couldn't do shit for comeuppance cause of his neck. It was bullshit.

STD, you have more options than just Bryan getting in the ring. You can have Bryan continue to send guys at the Miz over and over and have the Miz continue to win clean. This can eventually bring Bryan to respect the Miz.

Or Bryan brings guys until he brings in like Joe for a hot debut win over Miz.

Still think that Hideo Itami being brought in to kick the shit out of Miz would have been the most Daniel Bryan thing to do in that situation. Bryan could sort of serve as a mouthpiece for Itami and you can get him on the roster ahead of Nakamura and put a belt on him pretty much right away so fans think "Oh, he is something," which I think he needs.

Miz could bounce back from the loss by telling Bryan he has become the authority he always hated.

Eh, just don't think Itami is on Miz's level. Itami definitely doesn't need a title when he does get called up unless it the Cruiserweight title on Raw.

With ROH, Meltzer said Rhodes hopes to work with ROH Champion Adam Cole but nothing has been determined yet. Rhodes is slated to work ROH's December Final Battle PPV which would be his first with the company.

One thing that still has to be worked out is that he doesn't have the right to use the Rhodes name on television, but is still using the Rhodes name on the indies.

By the time he got there, Dusty Rhodes was one of the three biggest attractions in the country, before he got there in the first place. I guess they'll work things -- he's trying to work things out with them over that. I had seen stuff where he had tweeted that, I wasn't completely familiar if that was exactly the case. But that's exactly the case. If he's in ROH on television or TNA on television, he cannot be Cody Rhodes
More details on Cody not being allowed to use the Rhodes name from now on.

Also going up was the 1980 WWF vs. NWA champion battle with Harley Race vs. Bob Backlund.
Before it was found, it was presumed to have been lost forever due to legal issues or someone accidentally erasing the tape. PWI has some theories and possible explanations on how the footage was found: http://www.pwinsider.com/article/104...lanta.html?p=1

Not to be forgotten after recently returning from a lengthy absence due to a shoulder injury, Hideo Itami tweeted that he will appear on the show. Itami hasn't wrestled in Japan since joining WWE in 2014.

Coachman revealed on Twitter he got involved once he got aware of what happened.

If Harper gets cleared, then he could return to WWE TV in the near future. Harper suffered a dislocated patella and torn MPFL ligament during a dark match on March 21st in Philadelphia.

The original title of "Lady Balls" was recently rejected due to the trademark office not allowing WWE to get the rights to either word.

We're told Hall didn't believe the guy was really her dad, and a manager stepped in and asked him to leave -- when he refused, someone called cops.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers responded to the intoxicated person call. They recognized Hall as his former wrestling alter ego, Razor Ramon ... shook his hand and calmed the situation. You can see in the video though, Scott didn't want to give up his beer easily.

We're told Scott left without further incident and no police report was filed.

Hall has a history with booze and drug abuse, but has said he's been sober recently. We've reached out to his rep.

Most notably, LaQue points out that her daughter seems to have fired Anzaldo weeks before passing away.

In emails obtained by The Sheet … Chyna wrote her mom saying the manager stole money from her, so she was taking a break from the guy. Joanie added, “Please refrain from talking to Anthony at the moment.” At the time, Jan says she was worried her daughter was just dealing with personal demons.

Upon further thought in the time that has passed, LaQue fears that maybe wasn’t the case. Which is why she’s now speaking up about it.

And even worse, we’re told the manager gave away Joanie’s cello — the news of which was first brought to our attention via the Chyna for The WWE Hall of Fame Facebook page — and he’s been confrontational each time her mother has tried getting answers on who received it, where the rest of her stuff has been placed, or how the money that was donated to her estate is being used.




Some other sheet news includes:
  • RAW's rating and viewership numbers have been delayed till later in the week due to Monday being a holiday.
  • For those interested, Season 3 of Lucha Undeground starts tomorrow.
  • Mick Foley recently on Facebook he has managed to lose around 83 pounds since the start of his exercising and dieting routine. Credits DDP's Yoga workout as one of the big reasons for his weight loss. https://www.facebook.com/RealMickFol...514826945318:0
  • Seth Rollins might be dealing with another online scandal soon after texts and a few NSFW images of him were recently leaked online. Supposedly a woman who he dated after RAW's show this week was the source of the leak.
  • Chris Jericho revealed on his Instagram page AJ Styles will be his guest for a special episode of Talk Is Jericho this November. https://www.instagram.com/p/BKBRdiUjyGf/
  • Recent episode of MLW Radio podcast speculated the reason Colt Cabana recently showed up to a WWE event might be due to him trying to settle out of the on-going Punk-Amann lawsuits. https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...colt_cabana_be
  • Vince Russo recently defended the use of Bra & Panties matches in the WWE saying they were needed more than normal Women's matches in order to help the WWE win the Monday Night War.

Love Luke Harper. Hope he's back soon. Wonder if they'll put him back with Wyatt or let him be a singles competitor. He'd need to talk more or get a slight gimmick tweak if they go that route I'm guessing.
