Watched a few bits over the past few days from Wrestlemania weekend. First time I've gone out of my way to watch WWE for about 10 years or so at least. It's horrible. I don't see how anyone could watch it really, why do the cameras switch so much during matches and why do they quickly zoom-in and out during wrestlers throwing punches and the like? I watched the Cody match (really good match), Austin and the Lesnar/Reigns match (which must have been cut due to time). Agree with everything that's been said and to add further that it's so far removed from what I'd call proffessional wrestling that it may as well not have any actual wrestling anymore and just be entertainment. Even if I don't find it entertaining either.

I did also watch some of the ROH show too and FTR vs. the Briscoes was probably one of the best tag-team matches I've seen. Absolutely brilliant stuff from both teams.

The Mrs and I have started watching AEW as we need some mindless nonsense to watch when feeding our twins.

It's so much better than WWE and has reignited my enjoyment for wrestling. It's daft athletic pantomime, but when done right, it's good fun.

BREAKING NEWS

Stephanie McMahon named as the interim Chairwoman of WWE

For those not following the wrestling news closely Vinnie MacDaddy is being investigated by the board of directors for using company money to pay off a former employee he had an affair with a couple of years ago. She was working as a para legal earning $100k a year and then out the blue she got promoted to director which doubled her salary. This happened at a time when WWE was making significant cuts to it's workforce, Vince's right hand man John Laryngitis is also involved.

From what I read lat night, he paid from his own personal money, but regardless he was still being investigated by the board. And it has happened more than once, according to reports. And Vince might have seperated from his wife sometime back (although not divorced), so maybe its something Linda (his wife) knew about.

Honestly, I'm surprised something like this hasn't happened sooner. Hopefully he gets everything he deserves. In other news this week Jeff Hardy gets caught with a DUI charge.

Well apparently him and his wife are longer together. If she takes him to divorce court he's going to taken to the cleaners. But yeah I'm amazed this hasn't happened sooner and as is case with stories like this you get slow trickle of further scandals as more women come forward.

Lets be honest here with all the scandals and metoo stuff that has been going around the last 5 years or so how 1000 stories haven't come out of wrestling circles is amazing really cos behind the scenes you can guarantee most of the guys in the 80's and 90's would be cancelled now for good!

Vince you suspect would have more skeletons in his closet than a cemetery if they all started coming forward.

Yeah.

And that's now up to Sasha Banks has been released! Insane!
During the May 16 episode of Raw, Banks and Naomi reportedly walked out on WWE after a meeting with Vince McMahon due to a creative dispute.[283] WWE released an official statement claiming that the two "walked into WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis' office with their suitcases in hand, placed their tag team championship belts on his desk and walked out".[284] The two were originally booked for the show's main event, which had to be reworked.[283] On the following episode of SmackDown, it was announced that Banks and Naomi had been suspended indefinitely, therefore vacating the titles.[285]

wiki pedia. states they left.
