‘Cade vs. ‘Cade? – The WWE always fucks over indy promotions it seems. With the return of Starrcade as a house show, they’re going head to head, not that far away from the WrestleCade event. Starrcade is set to happen on November 25th in Greensboro, North Carolina, while WrestleCade will be happening in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on the 24th, 25th, and 26th the same weekend.
WhatCulture in Trouble? – So in the world of wrestling related things, some of the biggest WhatCulture stars have left the company/promotion today. No word as to why, but it seems to center around some issues with WhatCulture boss, Matt Holmes. Confirmed today through the WhatCulture Twitter page, Adam Blampied, Adam Pacitti, Ross Tweddell (King Ross), Jack King (Jack the Jobber) and editor Sam Driver, all left to pursue a new project dubbed ‘C5’ on Twitter. The group was a large part of the rise of WhatCulture Pro Wrestling over the last (near) two years. So with their departure, the promotion’s future looks bad. The promotion and channel are owned by WhatCulture as a whole, so there’s no fear the brand is going away, and Simon Miller has apparently become the new face of the brand.

RAW Ratings – The WWE is having a bad year.
