I'll be amazed if Paige is still a part of the company by Wrestlemania, if that's right about the title belt jizz.

If it was any other woman with the company maybe, but like somebody else said, with The Rock being one of the main producers of the upcoming film about her, it might piss him off if she wasn't even with the company when it came out and I'm sure Vince wants to keep one of the biggest stars on the planet on his side! Plus if the film is a big success they wouldn't want people going watching Impact to see what she's up to now. They'll probably just let it all blow over. I think they're may be an upturn in Raws rating this week just to see if there's any reference of it, especially if New Day show up :slol:

Yeah I'm not sure what route they will go. They will either just realise that the film will be a flop anyway (it will) and dismiss her due to the title belt photo or they will just keep her off tv and any promotional stuff until the films release and hope most of it dies over (it won't, WWE will probably have her come out in front of a Chicago crowd and they will chant stuff about her). It's funny because 15 years ago this would have been great publicity for WWE, Paige would probably have been rushed back for a title shot, she could have played up to the crowd.

As much as I'm sure they're not happy about that, they'd get a lot of flak for firing someone who's been the victim of a privacy invasion like this. A crime has been committed against her after all. If it's true that the people doing this are doing it to belittle women in wrestling and try to get them sacked, which is apparently what people on 4Chan have been saying ("Women have no place in this thing we like and so we will target them with attacks," certainly sounds familiar) then WWE shouldn't play into their hands either.

I was under the impression that Jim Cornette had a bad relationship with WWE.

Cornette has a bad relationship with everybody if his shoot interviews are anything to go by.

Just catching up on the recent news, I can't see anything other than Paige being let go and the film being canned. Granted she is the victim of a crime here but this is an absolute PR disaster. They cannot put her out in front of a live crowd anywhere again.

I'm sure it'd be a bigger PR disaster then if she sued them for unfair dismissal and won.

Translation - just finished looking at the pictures and videos.

I've now seen the summer raw and Kaitlyn ones. Bloody hell kaitlyn looks like her body was constructed by a mad scientist. The summer Rae ones just aren't as graphic as Paige despite featuring full nudity. Summer hasn't done anything sackable and is just a victim, she should in now way be punished. Paige however is debatable. If it wasn't for the nxt title photo then I would say WWE would be wrong to sack her however even if I don't agree with it I could see WWE being able to justify sacking her because of that photo.

She'll be ditched (thought she was already tbh) no doubt about it. The minute the title appeared in the videos it was game over.

Pretty good opening 40 mins to raw. The rest of the show will probably be crap.

Been reading a bit about the rock and wrestlemania 33. I get the feeling he may not be appearing. The winner of the warrior award tweeted rock about how he would love to see him in Orlando in a few weeks and the rock tweeted back that we're trying to get down there. I assume that means there may be some film scheduling issues. They had issues last year which meant that he didn't even rehearse his appearance last year until the early hours of Sunday after getting off the plane. I know a lot of people don't care for the rocks random appearances but I still mark out. What surprises me is how little he uses the appearances to promote his films.

To be fair I don't think it will work like that. They just won't renew her contract or put her back on TV. She can't ever appear in front of a live crowd on TV again as we all know what will happen.

Yuck. Looks like she's sucking off Kevin Owens in one :slol:

Quite a few of Melina have leaked too. Meh. Pretty much all of these have been not great.

So WWE went with the pre-tape option for the New Day last night. They've also killed the comments on their YouTube video.

Thought that miz and maryse total bellas skit was hillarious.

Surprised to see the Usos win the tag titles so close to mania, expect American alpha to win the back at mania which annoys me. It annoys me because instead of giving new stars a genuine wrestlemania moment they force it. For example they could of held back bayley and American alphas first title wins until wrestlemania. Both, especially bayley, would have made more sense.

This weeks Raw has hit the lowest ratings since 1997, everything is going well then.
