Apparently he was fired on the spot for Hart mentioning Vince in his hall of fame speech

Sounds like a mixed deal for them which is no surprise really.

The $50 PPV model doesn't work now days though

Not going to have cable any longer, but will probably sign up for Bleacher Report Live (or Hulu TV) and check this out when it starts airing. I love WWE, but man their weekly shows are a chore to get through. Not too enthusiastic about $50 PPV's, but may check out one or two of them at the beginning.

I still enjoy the PPV's, because at least you get actual wrestling with it, but if they keep up the DQ finishes and predictable outcomes I might do the same.

Here's hoping that the reported power struggle between Triple H and Vince keeps getting more and more exposure. Triple H taking over and making it more like NXT would be a godsend. He may not have as many wrestlers and such to book, but man what they do down there is so much better it's insane. Every match feels huge

Some intriguing news claiming that Massaro was raped by US miltary troops and asked to be kept quiet by WWE.

WWE is saddened by the death of Ashley Massaro, and we reiterate our condolences to her family. However, we regret that her attorney Konstantine Kyros, who filed multiple cases against WWE, lost all of them, and was sanctioned multiple times by the Court for repeated misconduct and false allegations, is using Ashley’s death to further his malicious campaign against WWE by releasing an affidavit that she submitted to the Court and later apologized to WWE for being involved with, so we wish to make certain things crystal clear.
At no time was Vince McMahon or the management of WWE ever informed by Ashley Massaro or anybody else that she had been sexually assaulted, drugged, raped or sodomized by a military doctor with a nurse standing guard while on a goodwill tour in 2007 to U.S. military bases in Kuwait. In fact, if she ever articulated such a claim to WWE, we would have reported it immediately to the Base Commander.
At no time was there ever a meeting with Vince McMahon, Kevin Dunn, John Laurinaitis or other company executives in which she told them of such a claim and was instructed to keep it quiet.



So yeah the claim is coming from her lawyer and doesn't sound like he was ever able to provide proof.
Not helped by her having known health issues and they made some pretty nasty claims. And I doubt she would have got in touch with them last year to make amends if they had covered that stuff up.

Still can't act and nearly jumped the gun at the 45 second mark. But sounds like it was a solid show.

Forgot to set my record. Anyone in the UK know if they had ad breaks or censored anything? C4 ruined WWE PPVs when they had 4 a year

Moxley.

Having Ross will really help them get talent over with new fans. The guy still has the passion for the sport and won't have to plug social media every minute and will be allowed to call the matches.

Watched highlights and the crowd are very NXT in both good and bad ways.

Still if it becomes an actual challenge one day it's good as everyone needs competition.

That was better than any acting he did in wwe IMO.

WWE is in trouble already with bad story lines,ratings and a shrinking viewership that is hitting record lows.

AEW has the potential to hurt them badly which is good for wrestling fans as it should cause them to step it up which could result in better than "Super man punch,super man punch,super man punch again"zzzzzz types of talents getting the biggest pushes and more talented ones instead.

i watched AEW DoN, didnt know a single wrestler expect for the ones that were at WWE and i gotta say that was some incredible stuff, will give them another shot. eventhough there was too many tag matches they were all incredible tbh (especially young bucks one... just wow)

i am interested to see how unique they make these matches as time goes on, these high flyers are amazing first time but then if they just do the same spot over and over it wont last.
