Foley on People Asking If Wrestling Is Fake, JR on Consequences for Punk, WWE Stock, Rhodes
– Jim Ross has updated the Q&A section on JRsBarBQ.com and was asked about potential consequences for CM Punk walking out on WWE. Ross replied:
“Several things could happen. Too many unknown variables in this matter to do any thing more than IWC speculation. Unless there is good reason and one fails to report to work they can be potentially in breach of contract which means they can’t even retain their future royalties. I don’t know all the details of the matter. It will work out in due time.”
– Mick Foley recently spoke with The Province and talked about people asking him about wrestling being fake:
“There is nothing worse than sitting on a plane for six hours next to someone whose first question to you was, ‘Is wrestling fake?’ You know you are not going to have a pleasant experience. I would never think of sitting down next to somebody and insulting what they do for a living. My general answer is, I say, ‘Every bit of it is fake,’ and then they say, ‘Every bit of it?’ Then I get people starting to come on my side and saying they know that some of that was real. That’s something I learned from Owen Hart. Just say ‘yes, every bit of it is fake.’”
– WWE stock closed at $22.77 per share today.
– Cody Rhodes and his wife Brandi (NXT’s Eden) will be doing a meet & greet before Friday’s NXT live event in Largo, Florida.
