Backstage Update – Why WWE Fired Their Executive VP

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Here are some additional details on WWE firing Executive Vice President of Content Lisa Lee Fox. She worked for the company since 1995 and reported directly to Vince McMahon and Triple H. She had been the point person in WWE’s bid for the old Paul Boesch Houston Wrestling tape library. The NWA’s Bruce Tharpe eventually purchased the library, and it led to them starting their own streaming service, with the Boesch library as it’s centerpiece.

While WWE doesn’t look at the NWA as competition, they were not happy that they lost out on a tape library, especially one that led to the start of a streaming wrestling service that features big name matches from the past.

Jim Ross Blogs – Lesnar vs. Rollins, Heyman, NXT Diva Debuts

Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry, here are the highlights…

On The Debuting NXT Ladies: Interesting Raw Monday night from Atlanta as the new, females from NXT had more people talking on my timelines than anyone else on the show including the combatants for the WWE World Title. Sara Del Ray has done an amazing of training/coaching the women who pass through NXT. Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch should be stalwarts for years to come in WWE and I see no reason why they cannot move to the top or near the top of primary WWE events sooner than later. It’s a sign of the times and a changing of he guard not unlike the days of Jennie Finch putting women’s softball on the map or Ronda Rousey becoming a mega star in UFC. The only thing that can hold these women back is old school thinking and not being willing to take a chance on adding something new to the top of the cards.”

On Lesnar vs. Rollins: “WWE has positioned Seth Rollins to lose to Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title Sunday night in St. Louis which is why I don’t think it happens. Sunday would be a great place to add a new talent or two to the mix as allies of Rollins considering that Lesnar and Heyman have eliminated the rest. Could HHH cost Lesnar the title and then face Brock at Summer Slam? Bottom line is that I don’t see Rollins losing Sunday at Battleground.”

On Paul Heyman: @HeymanHustle again proved his worth by talking people into the seats for the upcoming Lesnar-Rollins match. Lesnar’s strength is pure, animal magnetism and not talking while Rollins is still developing his verbal game so having a talent like Heyman associated with this storyline is imperative and valuable.

On TNA and ROH: Hope TNA and ROH have a good TV ratings night tonight (Wednesday) on Destination America. This is especially important for TNA. I don’t need to see their World Champion wrestle three times on one show, that I do know and I am a fan of the talent that EC3 has evolved into. TNA needs to really hone in on their booking right now, not allow too many cooks in the kitchen and focus on the handful of stars that they know that they have access to over the long haul.

Jeff Jarrett Reveals His Plans For GFW, Mixed Reaction In TNA, More

Jeff Jarrett recently spoke with Between the Ropes, here are the highlights…

On the ‘Amped’ name for the GFW TV show: You want to describe in a real short, consider manner what you want your consumer, you viewer to feel and Amped touched on many of the bases. On the one hand, it’s not that big of a deal but on the other hand it’s a huge deal. So at the end of the day, I think it’s a little bit in between that. I don’t care if it’s called Raw, Smackdown, Nitro, Thunder, Impact, Xplosion, you can go on and on. What matters is what happens when you sit down in front of your iPad, your computer, your TV, whatever it is and do you like it. Do you like the content. That determines the success of the show, certainly not the name of it.

On the reaction he received backstage when he walked to the ring upon his return to the iMPACT! Zone and after he cut that promo: When I walked through the locker room and Austin Aries did a double take like “what the heck?” Backstage as we got out of the car Nick Aldis — Magnus — knows my kids and saw them first and we had already discussed him being part of the Grand Slam Tour and all of that but he didn’t know I was coming down there. He did maybe not a double take but sort of a triple take and you could see his wheels spinning like “what the heck is going on here?” That’s probably about the same as I went through there and we capture footage, it’s on YouTube. That video specifically is up to like 90,000 views. But pretty much everyone turned their heads and wasn’t real sure what was going on. It was a cool moment. It was one of those times in wrestling where you can say I didn’t see that coming, I enjoyed that.

On whether or not he will show up at the upcoming iMPACT! TV tapings: Never say never. Those discussions are continuing to go on. Bobby Roode is going to be in Vegas next Friday (for the GFW TV taping). Eric Young was just on this loop. It’s very obvious that the relationship has not ended. Where it’s going to go is TBD. It truly is TBD. I think both side will continue to bring their respective fanbases along for the ride.

Report: TNA Admitting That They Are Done On Destination America

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Some of the talent in TNA have been privately told, if you read between the lines, about the company’s future on Destination America.

Some talent has been told that the money TNA makes on overseas television deals will keep the money afloat while they shop around for a new television deal in the United States.

TNA talents have also been told that the company will survive and will be okay because they’ve trimmed most of the big contracts and have eliminated many of the higher paid wrestlers from the roster. They are also saying that their business model is changing.

Major Update – The Undertaker vs. Sting At SummerSlam?

Partial Source: The Wrestling Observer

UPDATE x 3: Both Undertaker and Sting will be appearing at the WWE Summerslam PPV. There aren’t many details at this time, but the word is that these will not be surprise appearances ,and that they will be promoted well in advance. As of now, the belief is Sting vs. The Undertaker will take place at SummerSlam. Vince McMahon already has an opponent in mind for The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32. The early word is that we’ll see an Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar rematch or The Undertaker vs. John Cena.

UPDATE x 2: According to sources, The Undertaker is slated to return next week to build a match for the Summerslam PPV. He is scheduled for Monday’s RAW, and he could appear at the Battleground PPV. WWE has dropped Undertaker’s name a lot of WWE TV as of late.

UPDATE: Okay, so first things first: at this point, it’s simply a rumor, so get your grains of salt ready. But the word going around is that The Undertaker may return this Sunday at WWE Battleground during the main event match. While the rumor started on Reddit, it is actually a possibility.

The report suggests that the return could set up an angle at SummerSlam, and could be done in order to push for an upswing in WWE Network subscriber numbers before the Q2 earnings call at the end of the month.

As reported, a recent picture was posted online of the Undertaker working out (see below). And while Reddit rumors are spurious at best, this one came from the guy who correctly predicted Samoa Joe’s signing and appearance at NXT Takeover: Unstoppable, Kevin Owens’ Raw debut, Mark Henry replacing Rusev in Elimination Chamber and Ryback winning the Intercontinental Title at the same show. He has yet to give a spoiler that didn’t turn out accurate. So while it’s unconfirmed, it’s at least a rumor coming from someone with credibility.

The Undertaker’s wife and former WWE Diva Michelle McCool recently tweeted a photo of herself in a bikini on the beach. If you’re interested, you can click here to view it. How does she look these days?! Let us know! (The Undertaker is one lucky dude!)

ORIGINAL: DeFranco’s Gym posted the following pic to Twitter of the Undertaker working out:
