Major backstage heat on WWE Diva

22 Aug

 

It is being reported that WWE Management is said to have soured on WWE Diva Beth Phoenix over “being out of shape.”

The issue began last night before Monday Night RAW when the former Divas champion entered the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California appearing to be “chubby” according to an unnamed WWE producer. As a result, WWE Officials were none too pleased and ordered Phoenix to take a leave of absence until she got down to a certain weight limit.

Match nixed from SummerSlam

20 Aug

 

This year’s SummerSlam marked the first time since WrestleMania XXVIII that no unannounced matches ever took place at a WWE pay-per-view.

At one point, Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes was scheduled to take place after the WWE Championship triple threat match between John Cena, CM Punk, and the Big Show but was scrapped at the last minute due to timing constraints.

Both Sin Cara and Rhodes were backstage at SummerSlam but were not used. Another potential bonus match would have featured Brodus Clay taking on Damien Sandow but neither man was used as well.

No filler matches at SummerSlam?

19 Aug

 

It looks like there will be no impromptu matches at tonight’s SummerSlam PPV as WWE officials reportedly nixed both Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes as well as Brodus Clay vs. Damien Sandow.

The feeling is that the plan is to have the main matches (especially Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar) to be longer than usual and having unannounced matches would take time away from those matches.

 

The Championship Scramble match to return at Night of Champions?

17 Aug

 

WWE Officials are considering the possibility of having both the WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship matches be contested as Championship Scramble matches as a way to put more Superstars on the card.

This would mark the first time since the Unforgiven PPV in September 2008 to feature Championship Scramble matches.
