    Yeah, I figured it was as good as over the second he un-retired from football.


    I wonder if after he retires again from football, if he un-retires from wrestling? :P
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Smackdown Fox Officials Reportedly Unhappy With SmackDown Segment

    Fox officials were not happy with the segment between Jeff Hardy and Sheamus setting up a Backlash match between the two from last week’s episode of SmackDown.

    The segment aired in full during the broadcast from East Coast. However, the ending of the segment was cut from the broadcast in the West Coast.

    According to reports from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio, the network officials believed that the SmackDown angle violated their Standards & Practices.

    So they decided to put a commercial break right before the controversial spot in the West Coast broadcast of the show which airs on tape delay.

    For those who don’t know, Sheamus come down to the ring during the show and demanded a drug test from Hardy to prove that he was clean before their match.

    The spot in question which Fox Officials were not happy with came towards the ending of the SmackDown segment when Hardy, after taking the test, tossed the container of urine into the face of his opponent.

    The angle set up a match between the two former World Champions for the Backlash PPV which took place this past Sunday and Sheamus ended up winning this bout.

    While the segment wasn't entirely PG, it was entertaining and I liked the fact that WWE were "spicing" up their content by doing something a little edgier.

    I did laugh at FOX cutting out the "You got pissed on" chants.

    WWE literally ran an angle last year where Drake Maverick constantly pissed his pants. This isn’t edgy at all. It’s just more proof that they have an unhealthy obsession with bodily function humour.

    Comparing Drake being "scared" and pissing himself to the current Sheamus/Jeff storyline is like comparing night and day. Sheamus' promo's have been considerably more edgy than the WWE product has been in years.

    No it isn’t. I couldn’t care less how edgy Sheamus’ words were, since the end game still involved piss. There is nothing different between a character peeing their pants and another one getting it thrown in their face. Literally nothing.

    The fact that I’m even conversing about piss more than once in this thread just shows you how ridiculous the whole thing is.

    Re: Fox Officials Reportedly Unhappy With SmackDown Segment

    ^ Very true.

    For me, there's a difference between WWE's comedy portrayal of Maverick pissing himself vs. a storyline based on Sheamus' disgust at Hardy's lifestyle and past drug use.

    I'm struggling to see how Sheamus' promos are edgy at all. For as long as I can remember they've been using Jeff's past in basically every storyline. The one with CM Punk from over a decade comes to mind.

    Didn't Samoa Joe do a similar angle with Jeff a year or two ago on SD about him still being a drunk.

    Pretty sure.

    Then back a ways back with CM Punk / Jeff.

    It's not exactly new and edgy material these days...
    Everything will surely be alright.

    The feud is boring the shit out of me personally. I just can't find any investment in Jeff Hardy at this point in time. If they want me to care about Jeff, they're going to have to do something new with him, not this same old 2007 Jeff Hardy "ooh he's an underdog, he's a daredevil, feel for him" gimmick.

    That's Jeff Hardy in the WWE, though. lol

    They've pretty much confined him entirely to that, and show no real interest in doing anything else with him.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    In your opinion. I mean I will admit she hasn't been used right at all but to barley be on tv after being built up the way shes been the past few years. I dont think she sucks personally shes one of my fav wrestlers on roster but she was given shit to deal with when you debut as a vampire its dumb. I do think vince looks at her and doesnt see sex appeal and says he doesnt get her. She can go to AEW be a huge star.

    I'm not a huge fan of her either. However, whether or not Vince has soured, that women's division has lost a lot of depth with Becky gone and now Charlotte injured. She'll get another chance purely by process of elimination.

    Yeah, I did notice her sudden disappearance a few weeks ago. I've also noticed Black's demotion too.

    Best news I've heard all week. Just wish he'd soured on her when she was in NXT so we didn't waste as much time building her up.
