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

    Sportskeeda’s Gary Cassidy is reporting that multiple sources within WWE say Baron Corbin is not happy about his planned feud with Matt Riddle. According to the report, Riddle has known for several months that the plan was for him to work with Corbin following his move to SmackDown last week. With that being said, Corbin only found out about those plans last week.


    Once he found out, Corbin was said to have been unhappy with the feud and allegedly insisted that Riddle “beat five enhancement talents” before facing him. As seen on SmackDown, Riddle beat Intercontinental champion AJ Styles in his SmackDown debut.


    WWE began putting together a plan back in March to have Riddle and Corbin feud. Some of you may remember that it was Corbin who eliminated Riddle during the three-brand Survivor Series Elimination Match last November. Corbin then eliminated Riddle in just over 40 seconds during the men’s Rumble match.

    I'm not sold on the idea that Corbin's a diva backstage and I'm also sure the direction is AJ/Riddle for the IC title. However, I can't see AJ losing the belt early or Riddle losing after seemingly being pushed, so maybe the direction is Corbin/Riddle.

    Everything I've read about Corbin in the past doesn't add up with this. I'm pretty sure this was planned as early as Survivor Series last year as the quoted report signals. Also, he'd get his win back no doubt unless they're pushing Riddle as a main event guy which they should do. Nobody definitively goes over anyone in WWE these days.

    Let's also consider the role Corbin played on Smackdown the other night, losing to Hardy for no reason other than to "send the fans home happy". If he was so precious about his position, I doubt that he would put himself in that position.. Whilst simultaneously refusing to put over Riddle.

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

    Maria Kanellis took to Twitter today and commented on what the plan was for the storyline for her and Mike’s pregnancy storyline in WWE. As seen on RAW last year, Maria revealed that she was pregnant but Mike wasn’t the father. The angle eventually fell apart. Following this, Mike Kanellis asked for his release from the company.


    Maria revealed today that Mike would have been revealed as the father in an arc that would have seen him turn face:



    Fascinating. I'm sure, at the time, that many of us felt like it was another Vince's Son type angle where they were going to reveal something completely crazy like the return of Khali.

    I remember thinking "This is either going to be Hornswoggle/Khali etc or someone we've never seen before" for about half a second before moving onto something else.

    I'm more astonished that WWE felt this was appropriate booking for Mike to spur him onto a babyface run. Making him look like the biggest geek in the world, who's lost his testicles to his wife, doesn't exactly scream "I wanna cheer for this guy!".. It's more like sympathetic heat.

    I'm with EC, I didn't give a hoot anyway and the payoff was always going to be lame. Nice shot taken by Maria nonetheless

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

    After teasing a big announcement for this week, WWE on-air talent Renee Young revealed today that has written a cookbook.

    Renee posted a video to Instagram and noted in the caption that she handed over her manuscript today. She has been writing and booking for over three months while working on the book.

    She wrote, "Announcement time!!!!! Finally it's here and i can share it with you guys!! I wrote a cookbook! I finally handed over my manuscript today. Been writing and cooking my butt off for 3 months, and i couldn't be more excited for the rest of the process to get this book to you lovely people!!"

    Renee noted in her Instagram video that the cookbook will feature more than 70 recipes, including breakfast items, sandwiches, cocktails, and more. The recipes will also include a music playlist to set the mood. She also said she will announce the name, release date and more details at later dates. She's leaning towards "Holy Bleep That's Good" for the title.

    As reported back in April, AEW World Champion Jon Moxley appeared on The Wrestling Inc Daily podcast and mentioned how his wife had been cooking meals for him everyday. He also told Wrestling Observer Live that she had "some cooking projects she's experimenting with" while at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
    For anyone wondering if Renee is pregnant*, here's her announcement..

    *I'm aware that absolutely nobody could give a stuff.

    All Elite Wrestling Brian Cage Says He Eats 22-24 Egg Whites Per Day

    During the latest edition of the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Brian Cage commented on his diet, eating 22-24 egg whites per day, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

    On how much he eats every day: “I’m going to use today. I woke up, I had six whole eggs, and I have about 10 to a dozen egg whites, and then a cup of oatmeal. Six whole eggs is roughly 36 grams of proteins, and then 10 to 12, depending on how hungry I am, that’s roughly 3.5 grams of protein per egg, so that’s another 35-40, so that comes down to, I always try to get at least 60 grams of protein per meal. That’s how I break it down, if you want all the details about how much I eat.

    Then I eat a cup of oatmeal. Then I usually wait two hours. So today it’s been about two hours. I went to go tan, then right after I tanned, I went to the gym. I did back today. I worked out for about 90 minutes or so. Then I did 40 minutes on the stair master. Then I came here. Then I ate about 10 ounces of chicken, and some rice. Then I got a knock on the door, and my friend had sent me a tray of cookies, because I don’t know why, I love sweets. I have 10 ounces of ground beef, cooked, waiting ready for me, and I got chicken defrosted, so those are the next two meals, and then I’ll eat about a dozen egg whites again before I go to bed.”

    On how many calories he eats per day: “Probably I average around 4000. There will be some higher cheat days and there are some days I’ll eat a little less, but probably on the average shoot for about 4000. It takes twice as much to gain though, and half as much to maintain.”
    I may get slated for this, but I'm a fan of Cage and his work in AEW so far. I like the fact that he's a big guy who can also be athletic and showcase other skills that transcend beyond "looking mean and grunting".

    How do you feel about the new Cage and Tazz pairing?

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

    It was reported earlier this week that Kairi Sane has a pretty complicated status in WWE. She’s been on the sidelines after her head injury in May when she suffered a huge cut after being thrown into the steel steps by Nia Jax

    Per the report, there were plans in May for Sane to go to Japan and work as an ambassador for WWE there. There is no word on how that would have impacted her career inside of the ring.


    In an update, Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Sane is returning to Japan soon, but before she does, she’s slated to return to Raw as she is listed for the tapings being held today at the WWE Performance Center.


    WWE has known about Sane returning to Japan since May. The idea before that last Sane vs. Nia Jax match, which is where Sane got thrown headfirst into the steel steps, was to do a career-ending injury angle with Sane at a later time before it was time for her to return to Japan.


    That angle would have set up a SummerSlam match between Raw Women’s Champion Asuka and whoever they went with to put Sane out of action. Original plans did not call for Jax to be the one who ended Sane’s WWE in-ring career.


    Observer reports that there had been talk that once her contract was up, which is soon, she would wrestle for one more year in Japan and then retire from action. Sane signed a three year WWE deal back in March 2017.
    Poor Kairi. Those matches with Nia have completely put her off American wrestling .

    The pairing is awesome. When they first debuted together, I really didn't expect them to feel so natural together. I'm legitimately rooting for Cage to take the belt as I've just kinda been feeling eh on Mox as of late.

    I'm sure marrying someone based in Japan doesn't help either, that didn't really scream 'I'm planning on staying in America long term' and her plans were to probably leave WWE when her contract run out this year anyway before this latest bout with Nia Jax happened, but fuck I can't think of anyone more poorly treated than Kairi in recent years by WWE. She's one of the most pure, natural babyfaces ever and once she went to the main roster they had no idea what to do with her so they stuck her with Paige as a random mouthpiece, teamed her with Asuka because they didn't know what to do with Asuka either, and then a few months down the line turn her into a one dimensional evil cartoon villain. I used to think Bayley was the dumbest missed boat by WWE in terms of someone that should of been a babyface star, especially to children, but with Kairi they missed the boat so badly. And then throw in the recent stuff with concussions because they threw her in the ring with dodgy wrestlers. Poor girl. Glad she's going to go back to Japan to end her career on a higher note.

    Very true. WWE have an appalling history of mismanaging non-American speaking talent, right back from Taka Michinoku and Kenzo Suzuki through to Kairi and Asuka. Out of interest, how would you have booked her?

    Closer to how she was in NXT, that seemed to work for her and she felt like a top babyface on that roster.

    If there's no place for the only person to ever make Shayna Baszler, someone so terrible Vince doesn't even want her on tv 5 minutes into getting a push, interesting then something has gone horribly wrong. It's good she's leaving, would be a great addition with Joshi as a whole set to rise in popularity in the next 1-2 years. I think her leaving was in the cards for awhile, as Ed said she married a guy in Japan. It's clear she knew she was out regardless of what happened at that point. But her run-ins with Charlotte & Nia (and not to mention that there wasn't any repercussions for them being blatantly sloppy or even hurting her on purpose), I'm sure she's leaving with a bitter taste in her mouth, however.

    Her getting married was the clear sign that she was leaving. The only question is whether she will retire or return to Stardom for a short run. The rumors lean towards the latter. I imagine the injuries and how they were handled haven't helped the situation and her feelings towards WWE.

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

    WWE’s current Intercontinental champion AJ Styles has denied rumors regarding his move from RAW to SmackDown. Reports suggested that Styles had essentially been bullied off of Monday Night RAW and that the “Phenomenal One” was upset with Paul Heyman after Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson were released by the promotion.

    Speaking on a recent Mixer stream, Styles addressed the rumors head-on:

    “[…] there were some rumors going around that AJ Styles left Raw to go to SmackDown because he was being bullied. That may be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard,” Styles stated. “I’m a grown man. If there was some bullying going on that upset me enough to leave Raw and go to SmackDown, I would handle it…”

    Styles then turned his attention to the supposed Heyman animosity regarding his former OC members. He stressed how “that’s now what it was at all. Not even close.” AJ Styles then shared a snippet of what he, Gallows and Anderson know by labeling Heyman a liar.

    “He’s a liar, now you know. I’m sure you’ve heard that before if you go back to his ECW days, you’ll hear that. He’s a bold-faced liar. That’s my take on that.”

    Styles’ former teammates, Gallows and Anderson, were let go by WWE as a cut cutting measure due to the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on business. They joined several other WWE Superstars and backstage personnel in being released.
    Seemingly confirms what's been reported about the Heyman/AJ rift.
