I forgot to do the news, then I fell asleep. Then I woke up. Then I made french toast. Then I watched more “Better off Ted”. Then I remembered I still needed to do this. Welcome, the mind of me at 5:3-something a.m.
Lets get to the news Space Monkey Mafia members.
WWE Makes Major Offer – Numerous outlets, including one of my own sources, are saying that the WWE have offered the Hardy Boys a major contract offer. However, there isn’t a lot of excitement on the Hardy’s end, as it’s not much more than what they can make more per date, and there’s no creative control. Plus I’m told the WWE want nothing to do with the Broken Universe as a story platform, but would be interested in Matt doing his over the top persona. It just wouldn’t be known as “Broken”. However I’m told that the WWE is concerned with the lawsuit over the gimmick as well. They’re not expected to sign until after WrestleMania.
Paige’s Parents Concerned – Paige’s father and mother commented on the nude photo and video leak, and in their comments they claim that they’re concerned over Paige’s mental state. Considering Paige’s mental state has been a thing of discussion over well over a year now, I’m not surprised. Here’s his comments;
my last say on the scandal surrounding my daughter I have just spoken to her over facebook and I am worried for her mental health or worse ffs world get a grip she has not killed anyone robbed anyone she was having sex in a private situation between consulting adults and then has been betrayed by some low lifes as her dad I urge people to back off as I say I am very worried for her it will be no good backing her when its too late like many other celebrities who have left us.
Mauro Rannallo Done? – Mauro Rannallo might be done with the WWE, or at least he’s angling to leave the company. The WWE SmackDown lead announcer missed his second straight show, this time citing an “illness” as the reason. While the flu is kicking up in the North East region, it seems too suspicious that he’d miss two straight shows, while remaining silent on social media, while rumors circulate that he might not renew his deal (or have his deal renewed). There’s too many rumors right now for this to be coincidence.
Konnan Not Happy with Impact? – With the announcement that Impact Wrestling and AAA are agreeing to a working relationship, there is now some tension with Konna. Jarrett and Anthem has working relationships in place with rival promotions, AAA and Konna’s new promotion CRASH. Konnan had a bad falling out with AAA and while he’s still open to working with Impact, and keeping the deal alive with CRASH and Impact, he has gone on record saying he won’t work for or with AAA in anyway. So the idea of Impact having CRASH and AAA working together on a show in some kind of global x-cup is not going to happen if Konnan has a say in it. It’ll be interesting to see if Laredo Kid and Garza Jr will be used on any show that might feature AAA talent.
