Will WrestleMania 32 Air On The WWE Network?, Production Trucks

According to sources, WrestleMania 32 will be aired on the WWE Network. There is a line of thought that WWE could make more money with it as a pay-per-vioew exclusive, but that would cause issues with WWE Network subscribers since WWE has promised that all PPVs including WrestleMania will air on the Network.

The production trucks recently got their WrestleMania 32 promo skins, which advertise the show as airing on the Network. The Rock and Nikki Bella are prominently shown on the skins.

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

According to sources, here is the latest on the relationship between Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling. Hirooki Goto was added to the August 21st event in Philadelphia, and will likely be added to the August 22nd show in Brooklyn. The feeling is that this is a make good from NJPW due to Liger working the NXT show on the 22nd.

ROH booker Hunter “Delirious” Johnson will be heading to Japan soon to have meetings with NJPW and set up business plans for 2016. At this time, it appears that ROH and NJPW will continue with their relationship into the New Year following the Liger situation.

Speaking of Ring of Honor, here is a video preview for next week’s ROH TV:

Adult Website Sees Their Traffic Skyrocket After WWE RAW

UPDATE: On Monday night, WWE debuted the name “Submission Sorority” for Paige, Becky Lynch and Charlotte. As noted earlier, it looks as if the name will be changed. WWE found out that the name was associated with a porn site, and the name may be changed to the “Submission Sisters”. They have toyed with the “Horsewomen” name, but they do not want to step on Ronda Rousey’s toes by using the name.

TMZ has also picked up the story, noting that the search for the team points you to tons of links for a porn series called HazeHer, produced by BangBros. The article ads that BangBros traffic analyst Delilah Mcginnis says their web traffic shot up 56% overnight, and they saw a 35% rise in subscriptions. They plan to send Vince McMahon a thank you gift basket which I’m sure he’ll be just thrilled with!

ORIGINAL: WWE gave the trio of Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch a team name on Monday’s edition of RAW, similar to Sasha Banks, Naomi and Tamina being called “Team B.A.D.” and the team of Nikki Bella, Brie Bella and Alicia Fox being called “Team Bella.”

“The Submission Sorority,” the team name for the babyface trio, is also the name of an adult website, something WWE quickly found out about after mentioning the name on RAW this past Monday night.

WWE is already talking about changing the name of the group to “The Submission Sisters.”

There were some discussions about giving the group the name “Horsewomen,” however the belief was that it could be seen as stepping on Ronda Rousey’s toes, and/or be a blatant ripoff of a pretty well established name.

Ex-WWE Talent Reacts To The Rise Of NXT + SD! Matches

– Former WWE developmental talent Troy McClain spoke with Journey of a Frontman for a new interview. Check out the highlights:

On getting involved with WWE: “It’s kind of a weird little story. About a year into my time at USC, I started looking into pursuing wrestling. I liked what I did, but I didn’t love it. And it just so happened that a guy who I worked with had talked me into going to the LA Fitness Expo with him at the LA Convention Center. They had a bunch of booths, a bunch of different things from different companies and things like that. We went and checked that out. Knokx Pro is the wrestling school run by Rikishi, Gangrel and Black Pearl up in San Fernando Valley. And I had met them while I was there and I had obviously recognized Rikishi instantly. Then I saw Gangrel and I was like “Oh shit! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for!” So I talked to them on a Sunday and I was training the next day. I was still working at USC and I was training at Knokx Pro like twice a week. About a week after I started training, I went in to work out at USC on Sunday and Cena came in. I asked him how well he knew Rikishi and Gangrel. He said that Rikishi was a big help to John when he first started. This is when he was just coming up and doing the whole rap thing prior to the whole Word Life gimmick. So I told him that I’d just started training with Rikishi. After that, we kept in contact. A little while later, I got an e-mail from the VP of Talent Relations inviting me to the tryout that was in LA. I went to the tryout, did really well and got signed. All of a sudden, I’m in Florida.”

On meeting Bayley at his tryout: “She’s doing great, man. She killed it at the tryout and she was really the only one there who had any prior wrestling experience, as far as the girls were concerned. You have matches on the last day and she led every girl through a routine that they were all learning to do. It was incredible. Obviously her talent speaks for itself. In NXT, she’s killing it. She’s gonna be on the main roster in no time. I can’t say enough about her. She’s such a nice girl. I’m super happy to know that at least out of the three of us that came in at the same time, one of us is doing really well.”

On NXT’s rise over the past year: “Yeah, man. We’ve seen that coming. I’ve seen that coming when I was there. Especially once NXT got on the Network. I was at the Wrestlemania 30 Axxess and it was one of those events where you saw all that would be in store for the future. Triple H said that it’s gonna replace Smackdown as the number two brand. And it eventually will get to that just because they put on such a great show and the guys there work their asses off. And it shows every Wednesday with the hard work that those guys put in. They deserve every bit of it. It’s awesome as I watch guys that I was really close with. I watch Wesley Blake with the NXT Tag Team Championship. Watching Bull Dempsey do what he does. Watching my friends succeed.”

– Here are tonight’s confirmed WWE SmackDown matches:

* The Prime Time Players and Mark Henry vs. New Day
* Charlotte vs. Naomi
* Stardust vs. Zack Ryder
* Rusev vs. Roman Reigns

Legends Of Wrestling President Reacts To Roddy Piper’s Death

Legends of Wrestling President Louis “Uncle Louie” Gregory wrote an editorial for Huffington Post talking about “Rowdy” Roddy Piper’s passing and more. You can check out the full article at the link; an excerpt is below.

“Roddy Piper was one of my childhood idols but to the wrestling legends in the suite with me, he was much more. He was a friend. No, he was family. The Nasty Boys were no longer nasty. Jerry exclaimed “we lost Roddy” and Luke burst into tears. I hugged Luke as he sobbed. Knobs began to cry. Jerry cried. We all cried, he all hugged. We all missed Roddy. It was as if at that moment, we forget the world around us and as we mourned together, I closed by eyes and in my mind, I popped open that lunch box, put on my kilt and returned to the past to say good bye to Roddy. All Legends go to Heaven, some just go too soon…God speed Hot Rod!”
