WWE Spoilers: Former Superstar Scheduled To Be At Money In The Bank

Published

on

Since being released from the WWE back in November of last year, we’ve seen James Ellsworth staying busy on the independent scene, keeping a pretty hectic schedule and defending his Intergender Championship. For those WWE fans who plan on watching Money In The Bank this Sunday on the WWE Network, it looks like we could be seeing a return from this familiar chin (or lack thereof).

According to PWInsider, Ellsworth is currently scheduled to be at Money In The Bank in Chicago, adding that there’s been a number of creative pitches within WWE for him to make a return in some form. Currently, it’s not known if this would be just a “one-off” appearance or another long-term deal.

It should be noted, that PWInsider is also speculating that Ellsworth could get involved in the SmackDown Women’s Championship match when Carmella defends against ‘The Empress Of Tomorrow’ Asuka. Of course, Ellsworth was involved in a long-term storyline with ‘The Princess Of Staten Island’ before his release, most notably (and controversially) helping her to win the first-ever Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder match last year that led to her current title reign.

Ellsworth has since taken to Twitter to state that he will be in China on Sunday:

EA’s Take: My initial reaction is that this is likely just a one time thing, but the first time we ever saw him on WWE television was a one time thing also, so anything is definitely possible. Having him interfere and help Carmella either win or lose would make the most sense, more so helping her win in my opinion. I could see the scenario of him costing Carmella the title to get a measure of revenge, but then what’s the pay-off there if it is “one-and-done”? Also, does anyone else think him tweeting that he’ll be in China is just a smoke screen? He easily could cancel and guess what else? This show in China is at 3AM central time, 12 hour flight to Chicago, so he can be in the Windy City by 6-7PM. Very doable.

Hulk Hogan Addresses Wrestlers Who Haven’t Accepted His Apology

Published

on

Since being reinstated back into the WWE Hall Of Fame and issuing an apology to the company’s locker room backstage at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh prior to the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on July 15th, there have still been a number of wrestling personalities, including those under contract to WWE who have not entirely forgiven Hulk Hogan for his racist remarks that got him in hot water back in 2015.

Notably, the members of The New Day (find that here) and Titus O’Neil (read his comments here) addressed the situation stating that they do not fully forgive Hogan for his remarks. Meanwhile, WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry spoke on Hulk’s return (check that out here), having the opposite feeling of his WWE cohorts.

While appearing on an episode of Bill Apter’s new The Apter Chat Podcast, Hogan discussed his thoughts on those that are not forgiving him after his apology:

“A lot of people accepted my apology and a lot of people heard what they wanted to hear and a lot of the narrative that came out of the meeting was on point. A lot of the narrative was really different. I was surprised to hear some people interpreted what I said that I was just sorry I got caught on camera or whatever they interpreted, but I never said that.

I just hope the brotherhood can get back to the way it was. Outside the ring, you’re supposed to protect your brother. In this case, it’s a situation where 75, 80, 90 percent of the wrestlers are protecting me and they’re giving me another chance to move forward. There’s just a few wrestlers that kinda like, don’t understand the bond and the brotherhood of wrestling. If someone makes a mistake, you need to forgive them and move on and try to let them prove themselves.”

For those that would like to listen to the full episode, you can do so here.

WWE News: Seth Rollins Explains Why He Was ‘Upset’ With Crowd At Extreme Rules

Published

on

It’s been just over a month now since the WWE’s last pay-per-view, Extreme Rules, back on July 15th that featured a 30-Minute Ironman match main event for the Intercontinental Championship between Seth Rollins and the titleholder, Dolph Ziggler. While it was certainly a good match, the biggest story coming out of it was the crowd reaction as they were seemingly more focused on counting down with the match timer for every minute than the action inside the ring.

Many fans were displeased with how the Pittsburgh crowd treated the contest, as well as the participants themselves (go here for Dolph and Seth’s thoughts while in the ring). While speaking with CBS’ In This Corner Podcast this week, ‘The KingSlayer’ elaborated on his feelings about it, stating that he was “upset” with how it played out:

“I think upset is the right way to put it. People are like, ‘did you get mad?’ Naw dude, I just get sad because I love performing and I love having that synergy with the crowd and when they’re, you know paying attention to something else, inexplicably really, it’s frustrating from a performance perspective. Especially when you know you’re in the main event of a pay-per-view for the Intercontinental Championship, it hasn’t been done in twenty-odd years and it’s the match that you know, most people in the building paid money to see, to begin with.

So it still doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t get it. I can’t imagine myself paying money to go to some sort of show or game or concert or something and you know and not paying attention to what’s going on. Again, you know they did buy their tickets they’re allowed to do whatever they wanna do with their time. So it’s sort of a double-edged sword in that sense. They can do what they want, but yeah it definitely makes you question your own validity in that spot.”

Quotes c/o WrestlingInc

EA’s Take: I, for one, am with you Seth. For me watching at home, I found it to be incredibly disrespectful to the performers in the ring and it did not come across well on television. On top of that, all they did was make themselves look like idiots and ruin their credibility as fans. So many people piss and moan about seeing the same people in the main event all the time, so WWE gives you what you seemingly have asked for and that’s how you repay it. Why would they bother listening to the fans again if that’s how they are going to act? The problem is that so many people feel they are in the “majority” without realizing they’re actually in the “minority”.

Tenille Dashwood Opens Up About Suffering From Skin Condition

Published

on

Tenille Dashwood ROH

As has been noted, Tenille Dashwood was pulled from this weekend’s Ring Of Honor tour of the United Kingdom (read that here), Honor ReUnited, due to what was being called a “non-serious medical condition”, however little details were given as to what that was.

Today via Twitter, Tenille opened up about suffering from psoriasis, a skin condition that she has dealt with since she was a teenager that forced her to be removed from Honor ReUnited:

“In the past I didn’t have the courage to share this with you all. Today, with social media highlighting the glamorous side of life, I feel it’s important to share a dose of reality.

I suffer from a skin condition known as Psoriasis. It’s a common condition many suffer from and can probably relate to, ranging from mild symptoms to much more severe. I’ve fought this condition since I was 14 years old luckily having times that were much more manageable, however I have currently been battling the worst flare up to date. This was unfortunately triggered when I was sick recently and has now covered my entire body. It’s not contagious and there is no cure! Almost unbearable. I’ve tried to hide it (when it’s calm I can and have for years) and continue on stubbornly with my commitments and have for a while now since back when I was on tour in Australia and NZ. However, this past weekend things escalated quickly and I ended up in hospital desperate for relief.. This is what unfortunately led to me having to pull out of my ROH UK tour. I simply need to take care of myself! Happy to say I’ve seen a little improvement since the weekend and fingers crossed it keeps getting better quick now!

Of all the therapies, creams and medicines I’ve tried over the years, including chemotherapy medication, incredibly the only thing I found to help was diet and routine. Thankfully this led me to learn about my health and the impacts diet has on my body. My diet is extremely limited right now as I work on improving my gut health, my immune system and eliminating anything that is toxic to me, which is most things right now. I am back in the fight and I am determined to get this to calm down again by implementing what I have learned. Giving up isn’t an option!

For years growing up I was ashamed, embarrassed and depressed over my appearance. My greatest fear was that I would never achieve my dream of becoming a Professional Wrestler and working with the WWE. But I did it! Today, I stand here as a strong, confident and successful woman that has achieved those impossible dreams and knows that appearance does not change who we are and what we can become.

If you or anyone else you know is going through a hard time please share this, let them know they’re not alone! Believe me, I know it’s an emotional rollercoaster but it’s important to stay positive and keep fighting because anything is possible!”
