Hideo Itami is leaving.

That injury really screwed him over. Push was starting then the recovery kept taking longer and longer and then the hype was gone

Anyone else miss 80's wrestling? I know the production values were nowhere near what we have now but the crowds actually seemed to get into the shows.

Atleast we know why Vince has been pushing him so much

This probably means he beat it again, which is great news, i wonder if he will be involved in Mania

Lots of rumors, but Hideo Itami and Arn Anderson are gone too. Hideo and Tye both asked for their release apparently.

Roman's cancer is in remission, glad to see that!

As far as TJP getting fired, online they are saying it's because of getting tats without permission and being hard to work with, he said he got permission for the tats 6 months ago (they look awful) and that the boss liked them. I've read things about him in the past that he's a bit sketchy when it comes to younger female fans but I'm not sure how true that is. I know he constantly retweets young girls saying what an inspiration he is to them etc.

Nice to see Roman back, hopefully they keep him and Dean away from the Rollins/Lesnar match. Needs to win on his own.

Also, inb4 that one poster complains about his leukemia being a work

If they let Roman speak normally and show a sense of humor and some humility instead of making him the over the top tough guy on the microphone that may help keep him over with some who have started to see him differently.

They are hurting badly in that area, I like Seth but as a face he won't be an entertaining champion. They don't have anyone other than Brock that the title would really go well with right now, Braun won't benefit from having it anymore and there aren't many others that would really be believable as champions. Vince needs to retire, he's just hurting everything, Rusev was so over and they killed his gimmick for no reason. He's a talented big guy who's actually entertaining and easy to like and they broke him away from English just to kill the gimmick and turn him into a bad guy again.

............. Seth as champion is long overdue.
Roman can't wrestle and lacks mic skills.
But is good looking maybe that's what you see? Like Vince

Wow you are one of those jealous guys huh? lol Roman is as good as most of the main guys on the roster, making it about him being good looking is petty as hell. People get mad because he was "pushed" and because he's a good looking guy so they make crap up about his talent, he's a big strong guy so he's not doing backflips out of suplex's (something Seth almost always stumbles doing these days) but he is a lot better than some people you included give him credit for.

So Shield Reunion Part III? Wonder if that means Dean is still leaving. I didn't watch last night, but WWE mentioned it on the broadcast apparently which could mean it's a work? IDK anymore!

Also, I wish I cared about them having a match against The Evil League of Evil. They're going to destroy them in like five seconds on Sunday. Here's hoping for a Reigns heel turn, but I bet if they go that route it'll be Dean again and it sets up a Wrestlemania match between him and Reigns.

He's staying for a bit, but still leaving, supposedly. Some are calling it Ambrexit.

Didn't watch last night, but that's awesome that Samoa Joe won the United States Championship. Bout time he got some gold.

Now let him have a good run and make him a monster, not just some dude who holds the title. Really feel like that championship hasn't mattered since.................maybe AJ Styles had it? Hard to care about it even then

You can say this about anyone, but it'd be badass if they had Joe beat Lex Luger's reign as longest reigning US Champion.
