    Judging by his FB, Twitter, IG, etc, it seems that Helms/Hurricane is hanging 'em up for his backstage role.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    He's been working a backstage role for awhile now, I'm not surprised.

    Re: News And Rumors Tidbits. *May Contain Spoilers*

    If this is true Vince is single sole person to blame. Maybe if AEW suceeds Vince wilp be force to change mindset. Some of these are things from an artical I read from a close source to wwe creative.

    – The caller emphasized that the problems in WWE are not creative’s fault and Vince McMahon is the one person who deserves the blame.

    – Vince wants suggestions from everyone but it never gets on TV. 99 out of 100 times you can come up with an idea for Vince and it won’t be used.

    – The entire creative team has pitched to have Raw and SmackDown look completely different with different production, a different way of shooting things, etc. and McMahon shoots it down.

    – Vince McMahon doesn’t keep track of what is going on with NXT. He “maybe” watches Takeover shows.

    – The writers say he just watches WWE and works out and is not aware of things going on in the real world.

    – The writers say there is no chance of Vince stepping down.

    – Dana Brooke has been the hardest worker for the last 3 years. She goes to the Performance Center, she shows up early and helps set up the ring and she gets in the ring so she can get better. Creative will pitch something for her and she gets nothing up until recently with MITB.

    – The caller offered to tell Wade Keller off the air of some cool storylines that were pitched and never used.

    – The writer he talked to said, “we’re all working for Dana Warrior and it’s really awkward.”

    – The WWE-Fox contract prohibits Fox from moving the show to FS1 even if the ratings drop.

    – One writer is very close to quitting because he is so “unbelievably unhappy” and many of the writers are paranoid and think they are close to being fired.

    – “It’s such a toxic atmosphere and it’s all because of one person.”

    – When Neville walked out, there was a crazy shouting match and he flipped out on Vince McMahon and that was the last time they saw him. The writers praised Neville for being so easy to work with.

    – Ideas never pan out as originally planned because writers will come up with stuff and then Vince loses interest after a week or two. He used Mojo Rawley as an example.

    – The money is good and it’s a dream job for many writers but it gets frustrating. The talent is very unhappy and people are trying to get out of their contracts.

    – The writers say Bruce Prichard is a pleasure to work with. “He’s a funny guy and a pleasure to work with but he’s not getting through to Vince either.”

    – Shane McMahon, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have tried to talk to Vince but it hasn’t worked.

    – The people on the writing staff listens to podcasts and they hear fans bashing them. “It breaks their heart,” he said.

    – Vince is in the announcer’s ear “to a sentence” and he gets on them for tiny mistakes.

    – On Sami Zayn: “That’s not Sami Zayn’s promos. That’s Vince McMahon talking through Sami Zayn.”

    – There are 37 total writers and they are now working on both shows.

    – NBCUniversal and FOX both want the top stars.

    – Andrade went into Vince’s office and asked for a legit push. Vince looked at him and said, “learn some English and get back to me.” Andrade spoke some English last week and he’s been taking English lessons.

    – The Firefly Fun House stuff is all Bray Wyatt’s idea. Bray is described is an “absolute genius” and he helps other wrestlers with their promos. “He’s one of the best guys in the locker room.”

    – The writers he talked to say they loved when there was a real brand split.

    – He mentioned The Revival/Usos storyline being done because Vince just thinks its funny.

    Literally none of this is new news. This has been the way it’s been since the 80s. I’ve been watching WWF/E since 84 and it’s all cycles you think what’s going on now is any worse then preattitude era? The E isn’t going anywhere but I agree that AEW needs to be a legit threat because that makes Vince more open to ideas.

    Curious as well. I know that some folks had issue with the WWE naming a humanitarian award after Warrior, given some of his post-wrestling online stuff that bordered pretty heavily on hate-speech. Maybe that?

    The rest.... part for the course and mostly stuff that's been said, directly or indirectly. So many of the WWE's creative ills are sourced from Vince.

    Either it's not kayfabe, and Bliss is having yet another injury issue (worrysome) or..They are throwing Sasha in / having Nikki win it for Bliss.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    I think there might be something going on as ever since she got cleared she's hardly wrestled anyway. I hope it is nothing serious.

    Re: News And Rumors Tidbits. *May Contain Spoilers*

    My hope is that it's not concussion issues.

    She had one, and then apparently "numerous" back toward the end of 2018. She's barely been used since, even though she was "cleared" and wrestled a bit.

    Makes me wonder if they are still just being cautious given the nature of how dangerous concussions are, and they finally seem to take seriously.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    It seems like they saw it coming with the Nikki Cross angle on RAW.

    I don't see it being Sasha that gets put in the match at all.

    Re: News And Rumors Tidbits. *May Contain Spoilers*

    Probably not. I honestly don't think we'll see her any time soon, but who knows. Judging by Bayley's instagram posts, she's traveling with them all still. So that leads me to think there's a chance she may still just pop up at any given time.

    The Nikki part definitely makes it seem like her, though.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Ric Flair was hospitalized earlier, hopefully everything works out for Nature Boy.

    Conflicting reports on that. TMZ said it as if it was an emergency but other sources saying it was a planned procedure.

    Hopefully it's the latter.

    Yeah Conrad Thompson said that which being that he's married to Ric's daughter to me is a solid source.

    It's just rumour and innuendo.

    How in the fuck did Sasha’s name get involved in this at all? Last I heard she was still pouting in the corner?
