Rollins Comments On No ‘Wrestling’ In WWE, Cena Praises Stars



– WWE developmental talent Seth Rollins was asked on Twitter to give his thoughts on WWE no longer referring to themselves as a professional wrestling organization.

“I think you have to understand the idea of it. I was skeptical at first too, but it’s all a marketing scheme,” he replied. “When push comes to shove WWE will always be professional wrestling, but they are branching out and doing so much more nowadays that the word “wrestling” really pigeonholes the brand…so eliminating the word expands the brand and creates many new avenues to go down.”

– Both SmackDown and Raw have returned from the recent tour overseas for this week’s television tapings in North Carolina. The Raw crew had a 14-hour flight yesterday from Qatar to Raleigh, North Carolina. John Cena, who did not tweet during the tour, wrote the following:

“CeNation. Tour was gr8. UK was madness as usual. Qatar was unreal. I mean spectacular. It is truly a paradise in the desert. Saw great things out of ziggler, morrison, evan, Sheamus, and D.B. this makes the draft 2 morrow that much more exciting . Thanks to all for the b day wishes especially the crowd in Qatar for singing me happy b day. Moment I will never forget.”

– WWE returns to the Festival Hall in Frankfurt, Germany on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 7:30 p.m.
