- On top of the stipulation that if John Cena wins at No Way Out, Johnny will be fired, it will be announced on Smackdown that if Big Show wins John Cena will be fired. It’s possible that Cena is scheduled to lose the match so he can take time off to sort out his divorce.
- WWE’s attorney Jerry McDevitt essentially snubbed TNA in a letter to their legal counsel, Erika Blonquist. The statement rejects claims that WWE used inside information gathered by Brian Wittenstein to poach TNA talent:
“First, and as I advised you orally on the phone during our recent conference call, WWE has not solicited Ric Flair to leave TNA and enter into a contract with WWE. WWE has made no offer to Flair and has no intention of doing so.
Second, as I also advised you, WWE has not solicited any other current TNA talent to repudiate their contracts and enter into a contract with WWE. WWE has no interest in current TNA talent.”
Wittenstein, who worked in the TNA talent relations department left the company and joined WWE in a similar role. He attempted to pass on a database of TNA contract details, but according to WWE they got rid of him right away and informed TNA.
“Loved the return of Vader on Raw. Leon White aka Vader has lost a bunch of weight after getting north or the 400 pound mark and looked to be 330ish the last time that I saw him which was down in Tampa a few weeks ago. Vader’s son is ‘Jake Carter’ who is one half of the Florida Tag Team Champions along with Cory Graves.
“For those asking I have no idea if Vader’s appearance is a one off or if he will be back occasionally. I can’t see him in full time but, again, I don’t know.”
Ross also discussed Raw’s move to 3 hours:
“Three hour TV shows are daunting and must be approached with extensive, long term planning and preparation. I enjoyed many elements of Monday Night Raw but watching ANY TV show for three hours isn’t easy for me.
“Hopefully, three hour Monday Night Raw’s will provide more multiple segment wrestling matches and not more talk. Yep, old school guy here…I like the wrestling, drama, athleticism, and personal issues better than most talk.
“Don’t get me wrong, a focused, passionate, entertaining in ring promo that engages the live audience and takes us fans on a ride and closer to the talent’s intended destination is still money. Unfortunately, an adlibbed, spontaneous promo is becoming a lost art.”
- When a Twitter follower recently asked if Matt Morgan was returning to WWE, the TNA star replied:
I guess time will tell.
