    There is a hypocritical issue here of fining an employee for bigoted comments in his past, and then in a months time flying the same employee to perform in front of an arena of bigots because they're paying 8 figure sums.
    Seems consistent to me. WWE is fine with bigots as long as they pay them.

    I'm struggling to believe this 100 grand fine that Sullivan got. I mean, how much money was he making on NXT that he could afford a fine that high? It's not like he's getting NFL money or anything like that. I'm not saying it's total bs or anything like that, but it just seems sketchy to me.

    If that is the proper amount, it is probably taken out of his pay to be paid off in full over a period of time.

    I thought about that but, again, it just doesn't compute to me for some reason. I can't think of another sport that fines their athletes and then allows them to have their wages garnished in order to pay said fine. They normally have to pay lump sum amounts. I'd have to read the contract to be sure, but something about this whole thing, from the amount of the fine to the announcement itself, just comes across as very bizarre to me.

    That's true. It's probably a worked fine to try and please sponsors and some of the fanbase that is wanting for Lars to be released. It wouldn't surpise me if Lars didn't actually get fined at all and if so, it's probably not a lot.

    With all of the name changes that are now happening again, I'm wondering if it's a direct response to AEW. They obviously can't stop former talent from going to AEW, but if the WWE gives everyone brand new names that are owned by the WWE, then at least AEW will be forced to go with a different name. It seems like too much of a coincidence for the WWE to be so relaxed with name changes for a few years to suddenly be going strong with them again.

    I wonder how long until the entire roster just has one name?

    No surnames allowed.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    I think Elias may officially have go away heat from me now. I was ready to watch/review Smackville since it's only an hour long, but during the intro it was announced that there'd be yet another singing performance from Elias on that night. They've already done these stupid segments on Starrcade 2018 and The Shield's Final Chapter. Does every televised house show have to include an Elias segment?

    When it's a one hour show, I can't say I'm down for a 10 minute Elias segment anymore. Especially when the end result is always the same that a face comes out to attack him. Would rather they gave some time to the women.

    Ali/Nakamura was fun from that show. Kofi's title defence was ok, but the video package before the match was killer.

    Rey Mysterio and Gran Metalik to face each other on next week's RAW.

    Not sure if this has been posted anywhere yet, thought this was the best place to put it.

    Edit: Well Ed broke this like 7 hours ago on twitter, guess I'm a little late haha.

    Re: General WWE Discussion

    Miz and Maryse had their second daughter today; Madison Jade.

    Wonder if he gets anytime off this time, not like he's doing anything at the moment in WWE.

    Re: General WWE Discussion

    Safe bet is that Miz will get Raw off this week and maybe the house shows that go along with the week. Looking at when his first child was born, giving birth a week before Wrestlemania isn't exactly the ideal time to expect Miz to get time off to be with his baby.

    The Rock has confirmed he’s on Smackdown this Friday. Big get for the fox debut.

    That’s pretty awesome news, the show is named after one of his catchphrases so it makes sense to have him there for the FOX premiere. Plus, it’ll most likely get more people watching, thus the announcement.

    Alluding to Ed's tweet - I feel pretty confident that Rock will get a joke in about being Maria's baby daddy, and I can certainly see him hitting a Rock Bottom and People's Elbow on Mike. I mean, we know how WWE are. He's bound to bury somebody. Might as well make it the guy with the least to lose.
