There was a conversation during John Cena’s appearance on Steve Austin’s podcast where Austin suggested that Cena tighten up his STF submission hold. Cena gave the impression that he thought knew how to do the hold and didn’t need the advice. Austin tweeted the following during tonight’s WWE Battleground pay-per-view: @JohnCena needs to tighten up the STF from what I'm seeing on my twitter feed. C'mon, John…Tighten the sumbitch up… @WWE #WWE — Steve Austin (@steveaustinBSR) July 21, 2014Read More

WWE To ‘Rib’ The NBA’s Miami Heat On Monday’s Raw

Adam Rose has invited several members of the NBA’s Miami Heat basketball team to Monday’s RAW in Miami, Florida at the American Airlines Arena. Udonis Haslem is a huge fan of WWE and Adam Rose. Also, there are plans to have some “ribbing” of the Heat (likely by Bo Dallas or Damien Sandow) at Monday’s RAW now that LeBron James has chosen to leave the team and head back to Cleveland, Ohio. You can bet that WWE will capitalize off that.Read More

It appears John Cena handing the World Heavyweight Title belt to Ric Flair on last week’s RAW was indeed the company phasing that title out. WWE reportedly wants to retire the belt as a part of bringing in the new logo that officially begins on the post-SummerSlam RAW, as noted. John Cena, or whoever is champion, will still be referred to as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion but they will carry only one belt. The original idea when they unified the titles late last year was to use just oneRead More

- There’s a lot of speculation that WWE may drop the current storyline with Lana and Rusev after the civilian plane was shot down in East Ukraine last week and the ongoing controversies surrounding Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It will be interesting to see how much Kenta has to change his moves when he starts wrestling for WWE. Kenta’s Go 2 Sleep move is obviously associated with CM Punk and WWE may not allow him to use it because it will remind fans of Punk. Kenta’s Busaiku knee finisher had been used by Daniel Bryan before he got injured. His Game Over submission was taken by Bryan and is now the Yes Lock. Finally, Kenta likely wouldn’t be allowed to use his Tiger suplex because of the fearRead More
