On Ride Along they did a cleaned up version of Fuck Marry Kill (fuck now called kiss) and Billie Kay said she'd fuck Iron Sheik. Maybe she just wants a mustache ride.

Yea I saw that. Another thing Rusev and Lana should have their own reality show. Would be better than The Ballad of John & Nikki on Total Bellas. D-Bry is fun on it though.

Hmmm, Trump is waiting until Raw goes on the air before he announces his pick for the Supreme Court. Could it be....

Banks is insane so I'd take what she says with a grain of salt. Like her Russell Crowe story nobody believes.

Much more here

She has a WWE contract or just doing photos etc with Paul E?. Her reference to "Diva" makes no sense since its an antiquated term there. Had this been Attitude or Ruthless Aggression era then yea I see them seeing a Playboy model. Plus WWE would have announced her signing. Now when its much more about wrestling than eye candy something's not ringing true. Seems Paul might be working a side hustle which if true will jeopardize his future with WWE. How many more "Paul Heyman Girls" were coerced into doing photoshoots is the question with them being told they'd be WWE Divas?. I won't be surprised if Paul E gets embroiled in a #MeToo scandal in the near future. Because of how he was the puppet master extraordinaire in ECW, coercing young ladies would be like water of a ducks back for him. Hopefully I'm wrong but Paul does give off a sleazy Weinsteinain vibe.

Heyman Hustle is his own venture he started when he was fired from WWE after December to Dismember.

There's nothing in his past that suggests this is true. Ripping off wrestlers for money is completely different. He has no history of sexual harassment. He was actually a huge advocate for Missy Hyatt when she sued WCW over the pictures of her breast popping out while everyone else in the industry had an attitude of "who cares, she's a slut." WWF was about to hire her before she sued (I think the angle was after HBK and Diesel broke up at Survivor Series '94 she'd come in as his new manager) so Paul was helping her out when no one else would. People actually thought Paul was gay until he was married because he never used his positions of power to pick up women like everyone else did.

If you can coerce the boys into breaking themselves in half (for free in some instances) then surely he can sweet talk women into doing nude photo shoots and more. I'm not implicating him into being Big Pimpin Paul but maybe the folks who work with him are running an escort service on the side. Plus no one said anything about Weinstein until Rose McGowan "broke kayfabe" and kickstarted the whole #MeToo thing. I don't dislike Paul, quite the contrary but when I read this I thought with his history of talking the boys into things it's not totally out of left field.

I just read the whole tweet series.

Some of it certainly sounds like Paul, like not reimbursing her and not giving her plane tickets. But none of this falls under #metoo which is why no big outlet has picked up on it even with Paul back in the national news due to Brock at the UFC show.

She said they enjoyed the nude picture shoot even though they didn't plan on doing it, so there's nothing to get him on if she's talking about liking the pictures and having a good time. And it's not made clear what his association was with the escorts. Although he did tell her he didn't want her going to the party, and clearly that was because he didn't want her around it. So again, that's not really a #metoo thing if he was trying to protect her. It makes Paul look sleazy if he's a 50 year old married father hanging out with Las Vegas pimps. But that's hardly Harvey Weinstein material. Even if he is involved prostitution is legal in Nevada.

Not sure why this hit the mainstream media today when he's been saying it for years.

Chris Nowinski wrote but deleted an Instagram post saying Nattie Neidhart told him Jim Neidhart was diagnosed with alzheimers disease, and since he's only 63 they suspect CTE.

The Anvil could have early onset Alzheimer's

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-con ... t-20048356

But it does seem likely the underlying cause is CTE.
https://www.alzdiscovery.org/news-room/ ... nge-of-cte

The two are closely linked when it's brought up in relation to athletes. I wonder though how many other wrestlers of his generation have similar symptoms and what their medical diagnoses are. As you'd notice a pattern and I would strongly assume it is CTE. Also with today's 100mph strong style say 20-25 years down the line todays current wrestlers could be suffering too. Plus they are working a similar 300+ day schedule and whilst there's concussion protocols how many of the boys and the girls will go to the trainer and I saw I think I've got a concussion as they'd lose their spot on the card.

WWE does 200 or less days a year for wrestlers now, and New Japan does less and most of the time guys are in 6 man tag matches to just work a few minutes and they save the big, hard hitting singles matches for the monthly big show. Indies vary by person. You can work as much or as little as you want, but most guys just do 3 days a week for the weekends since those shows draw the best.

Brock Lesnar’s next WWE match is set for next month’s SummerSlam event.

Dave Meltzer has confirmed that Lesnar will be back in the ring for WWE’s premier summer show. It isn’t known who he will face. A multi-man match was originally set for Extreme Rules that would have determined the next contender for the Universal title, but that was canceled as part of a storyline where negotiations for Lesnar's next title defense fell through. Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley, who were the first two announced for the bout, will instead battle in a singles match.

Lesnar made headlines this past weekend at UFC 226 when he responded to a challenge by new UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. The two got into a brief shoving match before being seperated. It was later revealed that Lesnar had returned to USADA testing and would be able to fight starting in January.

Despite the high profile altercation, there was no mention of Lesnar in this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was said that this was a Vince McMahon call as they want to focus on stars that will be at this Sunday’s Extreme Rules event.
Hopefully Lashley since the world is sick of Brock vs Roman. Or if this is his last match, have him drop the title to Braun instead.

Martha Hart put out a statement responding to Bret.
CALGARY, Alberta, July 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. J. Martha Hart, PhD, released the following statement today in response to published comments attributed to the former WWE wrestler, Bret Hart:
The suggestion by Bret Hart that I am "erasing" the memory of my late husband, Owen Hart, is reckless, irresponsible, and clearly untrue.

Bret's comments are rooted in the fact that I have steadfastly refused to work with the WWE to exploit Owen's image for commercial gain. Owen was an incredible entertainer and I know that his many fans around the world enjoyed his wrestling career immensely. I encourage them to continue to do so. But I am firm in my belief that the WWE was responsible for Owen's death. As a result, I cannot and will not support any efforts by the WWE to profit from Owen's memory.

Instead, I, my son Oje and daughter Athena have worked tirelessly to honor Owen through the good works of The Owen Hart Foundation, which has exceeded $4 million in gift giving and contributions toward scholarships, homeowner bursaries, and other special projects that have greatly improved the lives of so many in Canada and around the world. We have always believed that this is the most fitting public tribute to a man of profound integrity; a wonderful human being who just happened to wrestle. I know that Owen would be very proud of the tremendous accomplishments the Foundation has achieved in his name.

Bret Hart's comments are disrespectful and cruel. It is disappointing that so many in the media have chosen to report them without seeking my perspective. Whatever Bret may believe, the fact is that, far from "erasing" Owen's memory, I have devoted the last 20 years to celebrating his life in a very public way. I can think of very few people who have been remembered so glowingly by their spouse.
