Sounds like Ruby Riott will be on the shelf for a while

Quote

WWE confirmed that Ruby Riott underwent successful surgery yesterday, May 21, to repair a bilateral injury to her right shoulder. She is scheduled to undergo surgery for a bilateral injury to her left shoulder at a later date.

@Bogart has a point. It definitely looked to me like you were spiking the football over having your source confirmed. 

Truthfully, you didn't need to say anything. We can read the sheets. Once the original story came out, most anyone could've figured out it was either a drug overdose or suicide. Such details or "reporting" were unnecessary; a young woman is dead and her tragic story came to a sad end. 

If you left out the part that said "confirms my sources", you probably would've been fine. But, the reliance on "sources" to make yourself seem to be in the know is unnecessary. We just want you to kick around the news of the day and the various goings on with the rest of us. Because, in the end, this is wrestling and there's nothing that breaks in pro wrestling that's the equivalent of the McMahon/Zahorian steroid trial or Watergate. It's all just fluff. :)

I do see your point however I figured my UNFORTUNATELY part in there showed I was hoping I had the wrong info. It was more meant as that's unfortunate what I heard happened to be true type thing. My one source who gave this too me has been hot/cold lately so I was even hesitant to post anything about possible cause but figured well most of these unfortunately end up being suicide and she was one of the people I mention who went to the Jon Oliver producers on WWE recently. I was really hoping they'd be wrong here but unfortunately they weren't.

Daniel Bryan obviously as well as Sami Zayn won't be a part of the Saudi Show. Kevin Owens is apparently not going in what many are speculating is protest in favor of his friend Sami Zayn who is a Syrian Muslim banned from the country. Aleistar Black has refused to go as well. 

Can everyone just say sorry Vince we aren't going and use the term "unsafe working conditions and travel" as their reasons?

THere's a ton of Articles on Massaro and how WWE treated her at times. The affidavided was signed years ago and it seems the lawyer made it public. Ashley was part of the group awhile back going after WWE for concussion protocol ad WWE when this was released came out with a written response and quoting an email Ashley sent them saying the lawsuit got out of hand and she got caught up in it. All she wanted was some answers to health questions

Some of these issues have been talked about at length by Punk and others like bringing wrestlers back early from injury, popping them full of drugs to get the pain down but then when healthy getting addicted. She said she had to wrestle with a concussion and was never properly trained by WWE to wrestle which is amazing because I think if she had the PC they do now she would've been one of the better females at that time. She after leaving she became depressed and an addict but said WWE had the drug rehab relations team work with her constantly. Unfortunately she was put into some situations she never should've been in when with the company. No one ever taught her how to take a bump safely or anything. 

Speaking of Ashley Mic Foley and the girls who worked with her set up a gofundme for her daughter for her college education. Foley already sent in $5K, Lillian Garcia has given 1K herself. I'll put the link in here to foleys twitter that gives a direct link to the page. 

WWE/F divas set up gofundme college fund for Ashley Massaro's daughter

Shepard. Massaro denied wrestling training, face of the Divas division, Addiction

Quote

The affidavit alleges that Massaro was hired to be the face of the women’s division, and instead was required to wrestle four to five days per week. 

It also states that she had no wrestling training at the time, was never provided with any, and was denied the request to train on her own time within her first two weeks in the company.

It stated she was never permitted an appropriate amount of time off to allow her body to heal between injuries. An example was provided where WWE CEO Vince McMahon allegedly ordered her cast to be sawed off so she could wrestle at a show, even though she was suffering from a shattered knuckle and the physician requested the cast to be on for several more weeks.

It was reported that Massaro suffered from numerous untreated head injuries, and suffered from CTE symptoms, including but not limited to depression, for which she took medication; migraine headaches; and severe short-term memory loss.

The affidavit also mentioned Massaro was instructed by WWE not to report that she was raped in Kuwait while on an overseas tour. She was allegedly drugged and rendered helpless as someone who was suspected to be in the U.S. military raped her, while a female soldier guarded the door. She alleges Vince McMahon told her to keep the incident quiet because it would ruin the relationship between WWE and the U.S. military. 

He allegedly advised her not to let one bad experience ruin the good work they were doing. Traumatized, and fearing for her job, she complied in keeping the incident confidential, although she did tell a few people initially, including Jimmy Hart, Ron Simmons, and current WWE Superstar Maria Kanellis-Bennett. 

Shepard reached out to Kanellis-Bennett to discuss the situation but has yet to receive a response as of press time.

They need to bring some legitimacy to the 24/7 title.

Brock needs to decimate R-Truth to win the 24/7 title and go home for 6-12 months with it, the briefcase, and WWE title (destroy Seth in Saudi Arabia in 2 minutes in the championship rematch which he's entitled to) with the storyline that everyone is afraid to confront and challenge him for the 24/7 title.

Have him eventually come back to use the case to beat Kofi for the other title. Then take another hiatus until he feels like returning again.

Unsubscribed from the WWE Network and from DirectTVNow, which I use for USA, today. Not doing for a political statement or a statement on the product, just taking a break. I don't think the product is overly bad like some do, I just don't think it's must see TV either right now. Will probably continue to listen to Cheap Heat and The Masked Man to keep tabs on what is going on, but just going to put all things wrestling on the backburner right now. 

(I do still kinda want to drop 50 on AEW Double Or Nothing though. I think there are going to be a couple of surprises out of nowhere that I would like to see live.)

It's more of a jobber title according to the back

Never realized what a kiss ### to WWE former WWE Ref Jimmy Korderas was. I saw a tweet from him retweeted by Brad Shepard where he basically took a shot at Becky/Seth/Kofi for being the title holders and lowest ratings. I read through the thread and just had to respond to a guy who was giving the typical but after Brock won MITB ratings were up and used the two RAWS after PPVs 

Heres my Tweet

"LOL pulling strings here. Both RAWS were AFTER PPV'S where RATINGS ALWAYS GO UP A BIT. I bet if no MITB was Sunday Ratings would've dropped again. RAW with BROCK had 2 of the WORST RATINGS IN WWE HISTORY."

Jimmy apparently didn't agree here and tells me to do some research who the champs were May 1st when they had the lowest rated Raw in History. I think he either misunderstood me is giving lip service 

My response

"Not really. If ratings were to go up why did WWE have the worst ratings with Brock as champ in company History? RAW's after a PPV have always drawn the big ratings you should know better then us you worked for the CO. So to use those 2 RAWs is just fishing"

He then uses the typical lets blame the champ followed by lets blame the writers. 

I then said I admit this was poorly tweeted but I was at work on break. Should've said 2 of the 3 lowest ratings in History were this year and non of the 3 u blamed were champs yet till recently. so I tweeted that as part one of the response. 

"You just blamed who the champs were look at who the next lowest ratings in history for RAW (top 3) this year and none of the 3 you mentioned were champs yet"

Then he gave me the typical no you guys no matter favs or not blame the champ, part timers or vets. 

Me

"You like Vince are insulting the talent by blaming them for the ratings Talent can only do so much with terrible writing and we both know the buck stops at Vince. We know what you're doing here and it's kind of sad. You're just giving your former employer lip service now"

"Also I don't know if your are trying to be condescending or taking cheap shots at the IWC here or not but just a fair warning thats not how you get ur point across to us. We're adults, just want a good product to watch and not have our intelligence insulted weekly is all we ask"

Had the volume down, didn’t realize they butchered Jericho’s name, but still pretty cool. You just had Omega and The Young Bucks mentioned along with JeReko in front of a lot of eyeballs.
