While I understand the 'send nudes to your SO' is all the rage with youngsters nowadays, I can never get why people would want to film themselves getting plowed. I do feel sympathy for Paige because her business is her business and it was with whoever she was dating at the time anyway.

I can understand the larger backlash with Rollins because he's a major superstar and had a lot of stuff lined up for him. Having WWE get pissed at him and firing him would have ruined a lot of plans heading up to Wrestlemania and so forth. I mean it was a shocker when they got rid of Hogan, but mostly because of all he has done in the past, not anything he was going to do. He was already finished as an actual wrestler, but can you imagine if they fired him before his big match with Andre? Or if they fired him before he was revealed as the Third Man for the nWo?

Paige hasn't been on TV since forever and has become pretty irrelevant once Charlotte won the title and it became more about the newer faces like Bailey and Alexa Bliss. Had she been a shooting star like Sasha and Charlotte are now, we'd be pissed at her for risking her career, but it doesn't look like she cares about her WWE career now anyway.

I am very confused with Xavier Woods though. Wasn't he gay in real life? And I don't mean the character he plays, but the actual performer Austin Watson. Or was Paige his little 'let's see if I'm straight' experiment?

Yep, my money is on Braun to win it if he's not got anything big on his plate.

I'm still trying to figure out the Shaq issue. It may be money issues; Show is still shooting on him though in some interviews to draw him in. As for his opponent, there really isn't anyone that can realistically pull it off. Everybody is essentially embroiled in a feud or title match from the Raw brand; unless they were to have an interpromotional match like Survivor Series did, I could see Erick Rowan getting a rub to pass the torch to him like Braun got a few weeks back. Otherwise, not quite sure.

Nope, he's straight. He's due to have a baby at some point according to this from last year: http://www.prowrestlingsheet.com/xav.../#.WM7YRpArLrc

Yeah, I got confused. Darren Young was the guy I was thinking of, so never mind. I sure hope he was single when Paige was riding him.

Ah, the picture scandal. I get it now and it is what it is really. I just don't get why people do these things, but it's something I guess we'll never understand anymore.

As for Big Show, I would also like to see him go out with a good match. I don't know about him facing Shaq, but they could pull it off if done right.

I'd love to see Show win the Andre memorial Rumble for a second time, but it's a safe bet Braun wins it

Hormones and alcohol would both be considered a major influence in those choices. Not that hard to comprehend.

To be honest, the Andre the Giant Memorial kinda lost its appeal after the second one when Big Show did win it. It's cool that it's a tribute to Andre and all, but if they are just gonna tweak it for a up-and-comer to gain momentum, they might as well put the Money in the Bank match back in its place. Or at least give it more of a reason to win besides a hernia-risk trophy.

Maybe a title shot to either the U.S. or Intercontinental championships?

They tried to bring back the King of The Ring conceot with Barrett, but it failed. What if it was incorporated into the ATGMBR?

Looks like the next WWE Network content drop is NXT episodes from 2012 and 2013 when the show started being taped at Full Sail University. I believe these were episodes that originally were only available through Hulu Plus, which I would binge watch during several "free one week trial subscriptions" that I signed up for every three months or so.

Jim Ross's wife Jan passed away after getting into a motor vehicle accident and suffering multiple skull fractures. I can't imagine how he's feeling right now.

RIP.

So it's looking like the only title that isn't being defended at Wrestlemania is the Smackdown Tag Team Title. Oh well, though, I guess. Smackdown's Tag Team Division is pretty weak at the moment anyway, in my opinion. There hasn't been much focus on it since the tournament that they held for the belts after the brand split. Plus we only have half of the Hype Bros., and half of the other teams feel like jobbers (The Ascension, Vaudevillains, Breezango).

I liked what they were doing with Heath Slater and Rhyno, but we haven't seen much of them in awhile now. I was also hoping to see more of the feud that they were starting to build between American Alpha and the Usos, but there hasn't really been enough build up or story happening around that for me to get invested in it either, unfortunately. Well, we still have another week. Maybe they'll try and put something together during this upcoming episode of Smackdown between American Alpha and The Usos for Wrestlemania. We shall see.


Does anyone here watch any of the WWE Network exclusive shows? I've watched Ride Along and Swerved. I've watched every episode of Ride Along and enjoyed it so far. I enjoyed all of the first season of Swerved, and now that I'm on the second season I'm starting to not care for it as much. They quit pranking each other and instead started to prank citizens, and it doesn't help that half the time the citizens just kind of look at them like they're dumb when they're doing the prank. It is still fun when the strangers do get more into it, though.

The entire run of NXT as a developmental show from Full Sail has been added to the WWE Network. None of the episodes from when it was a game show format have been added yet.

Ah, so that's why they sent their thoughts and prayers to Jim on Smackdown. I wondered what had happened and now my question has been answered. So horrible to hear about this.

She died Wednesday and the accident was Monday so good on WWE to at least mention something

They didn't mention the accident though. They just said that their thoughts and prayers went out to Jim and his family but maybe they didn't want to say what had happened.
