- After last week’s reports about WWE talents being upset with the Central and South American tour payoffs, we noted that WWE sent out a text message saying there was a clerical error and that new payments would be issued. That text message to the talents read like this: “There was an accounting error on the Brazil checks that we have rectified. You will be receiving a new check asap.”
This text message came almost immediately after complaints were voiced by JTG, which saw him become very popular among the midcard wrestlers because some saw him as a guy at the lowest rung of the WWE ladder who stood up to management which resulted in everyone getting more money.
– A few weeks back, we recapped a Japanese blog by WWE Superstar Yoshi Tatsu where he complained about being unhappy, mostly with how WWE wouldn’t let him raise money for earthquake victims in Japan last year.
When Tatsu got to Japan for this year’s tour, all of the Japanese media wanted to talk to him about the blog but he was really scared to speak out because of the trouble AW got in. After this year’s tour, there was a fan movement in Japan to try and get New Japan Pro Wrestling to sign Tatsu. Tatsu previously wrestled there under his real name. The Japanese fans knew what Tatsu blogged about and felt that he may be released by WWE. From within WWE, here have been no reports of Tatsu’s job being in jeopardy.
