As mentioned before, I was out yesterday so here’s the news from the past two days that I think you need to know.
Ivan Putski Reveals Why He Doesn’t Like Vince Jr – WWE Hall of Famer Ivan Putski was interviewed by The Two Man Power Trip, and revealed why he doesn’t like Vincent Kennedy McMahon.
I don’t know it is just the personality. Vince Sr. was such a good man and if you did something or made a mistake, he’d come and sit down with you real nice and he was just a good person and a good man and I got along with him real well. For some reason I couldn’t get along with Vince McMahon Jr. He just didn’t like me and I didn’t like him so I guess it made us even.
Drew Galloway On Jinder Mahal – Drew Galloway spoke to Mirror and Galloway revealed his thoughts on Jinder winning the WWE Title and more;
I made the loudest noise in the world backstage when he won that title! I think I almost punched the roof I jumped and punched the air so much. Just to watch his turnaround is the biggest thing for me. I remember about a year and a half ago having a conversation with him. The second I was gone from the WWE, as you know, I started to write my mission statement, I just kept going, there was nothing else I was going to do. I had a clear vision and thankfully it just came out. With Jinder he went out, he wasn’t too sure what he wanted to do, and he talked about this on Chris Jericho’s podcast so I’m not speaking out of turn. He got himself out of shape, not wrestling so much. He wasn’t really sure what to do and we had a conversation when he wasn’t too sure about his future and was talking about opening I think it was a Subway franchise he was leaning towards and he’s got a couple of houses and real estate. Wrestling was pretty much off the table. Then one day he made a decision, ‘no, I’m going to get back in shape’. He started taking it seriously again, got back in shape, got the call from WWE, continued his path, worked hard, gave up alcohol, made these positive changes in his life and just started working his arse off. To watch him go from that conversation when he was out of shape to where he is today, the most in-shape guy on the roster and one of the hardest working guys, I’m very proud of my brother for earning that. That was a big moment for him and I couldn’t be prouder of him.
205Live to get Bolstered? – The WWE thinks 205Live needs to be bolstered, and to do this they intend on using more women on the program. This is in line with the fact that Sasha Banks and Alicia Fox have been appearing on the show for a few weeks now. Apparently signing major cruiserweights or moving talent over to the brand was not considered seriously.
Quick Hits – Bruno Sammartino reveals he had to go through a a molding process for his WWE statue, while Ric Flair had a model readily available. the Hardy Boys are the only tag team in WWE history to win tag titles in three different decades. Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar is scheduled to be a one-off as previously reported here. Road Dogg wants Bobby Roode and Asuka on SmackDown.
