Reports today that WWE is in talks with Fox to air NXT head to head against AEW on Fox Sports.

RIP NXT, if that happens.  If ends up on television, Vince will get his claws in it and ruin it very quickly.  It will just be WWE Jr.  The reason it works now is because Vince doesn't pay any attention to it.

Is Jillian Hall still in jail? Can she come too?

all I want from the reunion episode is for them to make Sid and Braun related somehow and Austin to win the 24/7 title

Colt Cabana announced this week that his long-running podcast "The Art is Wrestling" is ending. It's a damn shame and an end of an era. It was the very first podcast I ever listened to regularly and his interviews with the indy darlings of yesteryear, who are all big players in all the major promotions today, were damn good. He was doing his thing before others flooded the market on wrestling podcasts.

I don’t like Colt that much but I respect that he was one of first guys to have a career outside WWE. Between the being the first guy to bring back shilling merch like the Rock n Roll Express, putting in a bajillion miles on the road and his podcast he helped lay the groundwork for today’s indies.

He's the reason Pro Wrestling Tees is even a thing, and why so many wrestlers can make money on merch and not rely on having to sign contracts with big companies to make a living.

So far the only names to come out that have turned down an invitation to the RAW reunion are Jim Ross, Bully Ray and Bret Hart.  Obviously, Bully and JR are on-screen talent for other promotions but no word on why Bret turned it down.

The interesting thing is Tony gave his blessing to JR to go to the show if he wanted to go, so he wasn't even being barred from going. He just chose not to go.

Likely felt it was the wrong thing to do as he said he wouldn’t mention WWE on air and thought WWE shouldn’t mention AEW.

Also likely figured WWE would embarrass and bury him on air.
Oh Dandy...you came and you gave without taking!

I mean, if they're gonna have it be a goof, might as well at least let one of the legends win it for a little while on the show. They can also have Pat Patterson simply try to take the belt from Truth, claiming that he won it in a Brazilian tournament. It fits into Truth's character to (almost or completely) believe him.

Interesting, don't know the source but I had read this morning that Cena wasn't likely to appear due to possible movie commitments.

Also, I went to see Lion King the other night and saw the preview for his new Nickelodeon firefighter family comedy

I'm glad to see them getting slammed by a legitimate source backed up with data.

As someone who has sat through Annie about a dozen times now, I can assure you it's a low fucking bar.

They wanted to be mainstream. Now they're getting buried in the Hollywood trade paper like every other company would.

Yeah don't know how you can spin anything positive about getting  buried in the #1 trade mag in the industry but I'm sure the litany of wwe loyalists will somehow try
