Someone is set to debut on SmackDown tonight with a really terrible name change. Like, possibly the worst one yet.


Marcel Barthel on the main roster is to be "Ludwig". He'll be called up alongside Gunther/WALTER.

Anyone watch the WWE "Evil" mini-series on Peacock? I haven't watched pro wrestling since the Attitude Era but I really enjoyed that series. I had no idea Roman Reigns had gone through so much with cancer outside the ring and also how much the fans hate him. I also found Ric Flair's story interesting as he really "lived the lifestyle" he portrayed in the ring.

I've only watched the episode on Hulk Hogan so far. It was pretty good and I look forward to watching the rest.

Watching Young Rock. On the show, it follows kid Rock, teenage Rock, and young adult Rock. This episode was a young adult Rock episode and there's a scene where he interacts with his "little cousin Joe", who leaps on his back and goes "someone ACKNOWLEDGE ME!" Roman Reigns, obv. Joe, just a kid at this point, then asks Rock to play-wrestle him, and Rock tells him "the world's not ready yet, a match that big can only happen at WrestleMania". Then there's a subtle yet meaningful glare from Joe to Rock.

So if there's any doubt that Rock vs. Roman is happening at WrestleMania 39 (so far dubbed "WrestleMania Hollywood"), that little tease should just about erase it.

India.com is reporting that WrestleMania 38 garnered a whopping 56.1 million viewers on Sony Sports Network in India. The debut of Veer is also credited for a nine percent boost in Raw viewers in India.

That's f'n impressive.

Dakota Kai was released today, as was Malcom Bivens. Dakota will be alright, she'll get picked up elsewhere for sure. Bivens likely will too, he's a funny dude and what he lacks in size he makes up for in charisma and humor. I would've liked for him to get a gig on commentary or something. His contract was coming up and he chose not to sign a new one.

MJF tweeted a photo of him and Bivens doing the same taunt, likely from an old indie show or a convention or something, with the text "Uh oh". Looks like it has since been deleted.

Would love to see him get a role in AEW. I know the new cool thing to criticize AEW on the internet for is "signing too many people", but Bivens would be a welcome addition.

Paige Prinzivalli aka Blair Baldwin
Harland, aka Parker Boudreaux
Sanjana George, aka Vish Kanya
Draco Anthony, aka Reginald Chase Crews
Mila Malani, aka Kellie Morga
Raelyn Divine, aka Jaylen Williams
Stephanie De Landre aka Persia Pirotta

All released. If you don't recognize those names it's because most of them are not really featured on TV much (if at all). It sucks for Persia because apparently she had just purchased a house last week.

edit: Oh crap, Dexter Lumis is gone too.

missed AEW weds

on a side note my mom had knee surgery yesterday so weds didn't get a chance to watch.Dynamite. For whats its worth i still think AEW is by far the better promotion than wwe.show wise.

Don't be shocked when the list of main roster releases come out

See this is what separates aew from wwe

Some of the matches are not booked as feuds and when aew does build feuds they do a better job of it

Just my opinion honestly

According to a Fightful report, Roderick Strong has requested his release from WWE.

Cannot blame him.

Be prepared for heel and face turns

Didn't watch raw looks like Nikki is turning heel as the gimmick ended last night with Nikki and doudrop

Curious why they wwe had reigns and usos wrestling as a team unless they are grooming them for pay per view match

Pretty good read and I agree with it. Roman Reigns still desperately needs someone to step up and be his main rival.

That's not good.
"Sources have indicated that the relationship with Yuke's and AEW, specifically Kenny Omega, isn't in the best place at the moment. According to those close to the game's development, Omega has found himself frustrated and "hating" working with Yuke's. One person even claimed that it has come across at times like Yuke's was trying to "take advantage" of an inexperienced Omega in this position."

Yah that does suck, Kenny's the man, but tbh the footage they dropped of the game today looks fairly promising. I mean it's not a ton of footage but I think it looks fine, just depends on how it actually plays.

There was also a report from Fightful that suggested that there were about 50 wrestlers on the release roster, but that there would be some disappointing omissions. Which is certainly worrisome, though apparently "DLC is being discussed". I betcha part of Kenny's frustrations stem from those discussions. So far I think the only confirmed playable characters are: Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, Darby Allin, Hikaru Shida, Jungle Boy, The Young Bucks, Owen Hart, Kris Statlander, Nyla Rose and Thunder Rosa.
