Completely agree :D At least she's being involved in something at the moment with her and AJ but knowing them they'll just drop the angle without them properly confronting each other or having a match. Speaking of which...did I imagine the reports from a Smackdown taping a while back that Kaitlyn had joined the Divas of Doom (don't get me started..)...only for them not to air the segment?

Yeah, the angle was dropped. There was footage of the heel turn on YouTube.

Cena is appealing to the same audience as Dick and Dom. It doesn't surprise me that section was popular with kids. Next up will be Cena attending a board meeting and shouting bogeys.

Edit: I also think their PG claims are laughably false. The whole Brock feud was definitely not PG, neither was the whole Kane thing with his rape pit of doom. PG seems to be an excuse WWE throw out when Cena performs horribly in a segment.

Whilst that section would have gone down well with kids, I have no doubt WWE didn't intend it to be a kids section.

A segment going out at gone 11pm designed for kids does seem rather absurd.

Some more TV news...

Wrestling Observer wrote:WWE said at the Business Partners Summit that they are planning on producing 150 hours of new television per year, one of which would be a one hour show that would air at 8 p.m. on either Monday or Tuesday nights, with high quality talent. This may be the show that would be taped on Monday before RAW. They also have a another idea, which would basically be bringing back the Superastros concept from the 90s. It would be a one hour Spanish language show with all Hispanic stars, working Lucha style.

In regards to the TV Network, a show called WWE Countdown was discussed, which would be a weekly list show (counting down the top ten entrance themes, for example).


WWE NXT is being moved from Tuesday night’s before SmackDown to regular tapings of its own in Winter Park, FL at Full Sail University starting tonight. It's roughly a 500 seat gym, so it’ll be similar to the IMPACT Zone & WCW Saturday Night. Tickets are free to all college students. The idea is that down the road they will charge for tickets to fans from outside the college community, and all ticket sales and merchandise will go to establish a scholarship fund for students at the college.

Triple H is advertised for the first taping, along with Sheamus vs. Del Rio and R-Truth & Kingston vs. Primo & Epico. The show will feature NXT talent and the best talent from FCW, but will still remain separate from Florida Championship Wrestling. WWE's Twitter account alluded that Jim Ross and William Regal will be announcing.

A smaller version of the WWE TitanTron has been set up.

I almost died with laughter listening to that bit. :lol:

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Maybe, but Reid is probably best staying away from the wrestling business for now considering he's a heroin addict.
