WWE News: FOX Wants Changes To Smackdown

Published

on

FOX has spent a large amount of money to acquire the rights for Smackdown in 2019. Now, in the latest addition of the Wrestling Observer newsletter, Dave Meltzer is reporting that FOX wants Smackdown to be more sports oriented and less comedy based.

The plan currently for Fox is to have a weekend sports block that begins on Thursday night with coverage of the NFL, Smackdown on Friday, NCAA Football on Saturday, and NFL on Sunday.

It will be interesting to see what direction WWE and Vince McMahon decides to take. Fans have long wanted an end to the PG Era of WWE.

Jason’s Thoughts
Even though WWE may most likely change their product, I don’t see a move towards the attitude era. The Smackdown brand has been the stronger brand as far as talent is concerned. The story lines and character development are much better than what is on RAW. It would be great to see more wrestling out of Smackdown as I feel potentially it can beat RAW in the ratings.

WWE News: WWE Reportedly Eyeing Germany For Next Regional Brand

Published

on

The highly anticipated NXT UK finally premiered on the WWE Network yesterday, the next step in Triple H’s long-term plans for global development of not just NXT, but the company overall.

Previously, ‘The Game’ has spoken about his vision of opening something similar to the wrestling territory days of old, but with WWE having Performance Centers across different countries. Now that NXT UK has launched, it looks like the company has already been working on its next possible venture.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Germany is next on WWE’s agenda, as the company is currently looking into creating a product similar to NXT UK. As was noted back in late-August, the company will be holding tryouts in Cologne in November (read that here) and it’s being said the reason for doing it is to begin building for a new brand.

We’ve also noted how WWE is interested in signing Austrian star WALTER, however due to his commitments with Germany’s wXw it would only be likely should he sign a deal similar to NXT UK Superstars Pete Dunne or Tyler Bate (check that out here). Now of course, this would allow the company to sign WALTER while he’s able to be home more, which was reportedly also a sticking point. Additionally, Performance Center coach Robbie Brookside has been working with wXw of late, reportedly with the hopes of the company utilizing wXw much like they do PROGRESS in the United Kingdom with regards to putting on shows.

WWE News: WWE Releases Three NXT Superstars

Published

on

Just as the WWE announces its new Performance Center class today including Matt Riddle, Chelsea Green and Punishment Martinez (check that out here), the company has reportedly let three other NXT Superstars go with no fanfare.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Tian Bing, Jason Cheng and Gabriel Ealy have all been released by WWE this past week. If you remember, it was reported back in June that Gabriel’s twin brother, Uriel, had been released from the company (see that story here) with no details as to why one was kept over the other. The Ealy Brothers made scarce appearances on NXT TV, most notably against TM61 earlier this year, but primarily only worked NXT Live Events.

Tian Bing received a lot of attention when he was signed from China in 2016 and was even featured on last night’s episode of NXT in a loss to Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. He also even has a WrestleMania under his belt when he competed at WrestleMania 33 in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Jason Cheng, who worked simply as just Jason, is also from China who signed on along with six others also including Big Boa and Xia Li. Much like The Ealy Brothers, Jason made rare appearances on NXT television and primarily worked Live Events, finding himself consistently on the losing end of matches.
