WWE News: Details On Shinsuke Nakamura Being Pulled From SmackDown Live

Published

on

Earlier today, it was announced by WWE that tonight’s scheduled United States Championship match that would have seen Shinsuke Nakamura challenge Jeff Hardy has been cancelled as ‘The Artist’ is not medically cleared to compete. It was revealed that Nakamura had suffered an unspecified injury last night while the blue brand was in Bakersfield, California for a Live Event, but it appeared that it could be part of an angle.

More details about the situation have now been revealed as PWInsider is reporting that Shinsuke is in fact injured to a degree. According to the report, while backstage at last night’s Live Event Shinsuke was bitten by a police dog. A police presence is felt at all WWE events to do a pre-show security check. Reportedly while doing a sweep backstage, the dog came across Nakamura and bit him on the leg without being provoked, leading to him being pulled from the show in addition to tonight’s SmackDown Live. It’s also being said that the injury isn’t too serious, however Shinsuke is sore from the incident.

EA’s Take: This is exactly why I prefer to wait on these sorts of things until we get all of the information. Unfortunately, this time I did not wait and was very much incorrect in my assessment. So for that, I must apologize and for anyone that wants to dump on me for it, you may do so on Twitter @E_Ames323. Swing away friends!

WWE News: 205 Live Superstar Officially Added To SmackDown Live Roster

Published

on

Mustafa Ali
Mustafa Ali has officially joined SmackDown Live!

Last week’s episode of SmackDown Live (see all the results here) brought us a tremendous match-up and something fresh, which is one of many things that the WWE Universe has clamored for in recent weeks.






Despite coming up short, 205 Live’s Mustafa Ali gave WWE Champion Daniel Bryan a tremendous showing, something that fans of the Cruiserweight Division will not find as much of a surprise. Since WrestleMania back in April and his match against Cedric Alexander for the vacated Cruiserweight Title, Mustafa has really begun turning heads with his work weekly on the purple brand.

Now with last night’s RAW giving us the announcement of changes coming from The McMahon Family, we saw some of it take place. Tonight was no different after it was confirmed to start the show that Paige has been removed as General Manger of SmackDown Live (check that out here). As the broadcast continued, we got word of another as SmackDown Live has now officially added Mustafa Ali to its roster, competing once again tonight against Daniel Bryan, but this time in tag action.

At this time it’s not been addressed if this means Ali will no longer be appearing on 205 Live. However, there is already early talk that it will be similar to Lucha House Party on RAW where they work both shows.

WWE News: Shane McMahon Confirms Paige Is No Longer SmackDown General Manager

Published

Paige
Paige is officially no longer the SmackDown General Manager!

In case you missed it, the big talk coming out of last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW was of course the appearance of Vince McMahon, along with Stephanie, Shane and Triple H, as the four announced that they would be taking control of RAW and SmackDown Live (see all things from RAW with Mitchell’s Live Report).






Of course, this left many members of the WWE Universe what this would mean for SmackDown Live General Manager Paige. It didn’t take long for us to find out as tonight’s SmackDown Live kicked off with Shane McMahon holding court in front of the entire locker room.

While commending the job that she did, Shane would confirm that Paige is no longer the General Manager. However, he would assure everybody that she wasn’t going anywhere and her role was merely changing, yet that was not revealed.

EA’s Take: I’d like to see them go the manager route with Paige, I feel like that’s what they should have done from the start. The only thing is, does WWE want to go there with someone that they aren’t willing to put in harm’s way. I highly doubt it, even the risk of being at ringside for a match doesn’t feel like something they would do with her. So honestly, unless they put her in charge of the SmackDown Women’s Division, I’m not sure what to do with her on television at this point.
