    Didn’t get to watch, who was missing due to the hurricane? I think one of their media guys said people would be out

    Fightful says Swerve and Samoa Joe were supposed to be on the show but didn’t make it because of the hurricane.

    A hurricane might be the only way to get all the wrestlers out of the Sex Apartment Complex in Orlando

    For the many who have asked about the status of Kevin Dunn and WWE, there is nothing to the rumors making the rounds on Twitter and elsewhere that he has left WWE.

    Dunn's status is 100% unchanged with the company and anyone who is claiming otherwise is 100,000% incorrect in their claims.

    I have never understood how those guys wrestle in masks that limit their vision like that, especially since almost all of them are doing flips and shit at 100mph

    Dunn’s such a high level exec that there’d probably have to be a press release from WWE if he ever left/fired.

    Bucky beaver motherfucker.

    Bruce Prichard also told a story about Snoop Dogg telling Dunn to fuck off at some event. Prichard wasn’t even there but says people were immediately calling him at home to tell him about Dunn getting roasted.

    between that account and Rovert's twitter account, there's basically half of his posts in here

    wasn't that the infamous Girls Gone Wild PPV?

    How long has he even been training? Didn’t the college wrestling season end in like April? I can’t imagine he was taking bumps while still in competition.

    No idea if he sucks or not, but what were people expecting?

    Weather dominated the ratings last night
    :doge:

    A .34 and that was only 9th on cable. Most Wednesday nights that is a #1 or barely behind #2

    I wasn’t expecting anything out of him tbqh. I was looking at him the same way I looked at Bad Bunny or the Paul. But people in the business were hyping him as another Kurt Angle but I don’t know what that is based on outside of being a Olympic wrestler who won gold medals.

    you're right, I misread the Juce/Mox video as the match at first. They had been doing a lot better with people sticking with the whole show, this week was more like things were in the summer

    Yeah it was rough. Hopefully when they get most of their roster back from the hurricane they'll get it back on track. And hopefully they get Saraya in check because they can't keep having stuff like that happen. If she stinks it up big time again she is going to start getting go away heat pretty quickly.

    They just need to elaborate real quick what her defined role is going to be. Is she gonna wrestle? An on-screen GM figure for the women? A manager?

    I think people will have more patience going forward with her if they know she's gonna get in the ring at some point

    Fightful said her contract indicates she will be wrestling so yeah they do need to address it. I thought the women's division was starting to generally head in the right direction before last night - though I haven't a fucking clue what they are doing with Hayter anymore. Now it's back to being a complete damn mess.

    It would be very odd for her to keep saying "this is my house" as she stands in the ring if she's not going to wrestle.
