All In News: Deonna Purrazzo Confirmed To No Longer Be All In

Published

on

With less than two months to go until the September 1st All In event from the Sears Centre in Chicago, Illinois, the status of one of the previously announced participants had seemingly become up in the air. Three months ago, independent stand-out Deonna Purrazzo had announced that she was “All In” (check that out here), however at the tail end of May it was reported that she had signed a contract with WWE (read about that here). It was added later that she was expected to begin at the Performance Center in Orlando some time in July (for more on that go here), all signs pointing towards her likely no longer competing at All In.

Cody Rhodes, who is producing the show with The Young Bucks (and perhaps some other help) responded to a fan question last night on Twitter, confirming that Deonna is no longer able to be at All In:

EA’s Take: No big surprise here, there was never a chance that WWE was going to let her work that show, no matter what kind of strides they’ve made with other promotions. There’s been some talk that WWE had been trying to sign people in order to prevent them from appearing at All In and I believe that all really started here. You could maybe throw MJF into that mix, but if I’m remembering correctly, he was already under contract to MLW before he was “All In” (which reportedly hasn’t stopped WWE from offering him a deal). Personally, I’ll never understand why any company as big as WWE would ever be so worried about another event that they’d just blindly sign people to keep them away. Whether you believe that’s the case here is up to you. I’d just hate for that to turn into some kind of narrative for Deonna because it’s not like she isn’t talented.

*SPOILERS* Big Title Change At Tonight’s NXT Television Tapings

Published

on

While NXT is on the air right now on the WWE Network, the brand is simultaneously holding its next set of television tapings at Full Sail University that will run up to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III on August 18th. Tonight’s episode has been previewing next week’s big NXT Championship match as Tommaso Ciampa challenges Aleister Black.

Ciampa has had the NXT Title in his crosshairs since defeating Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II in a Street Fight. ‘The Blackheart’ has looked to put Gargano behind him and played mind games with the current champion leading up to next week’s contest, however the match was filmed tonight.

Tommaso Ciampa has gone on to defeat Black, becoming the new NXT Champion. According to MrJacobCohen on Twitter, who has been a solid source for spoilers, the referee went down in the match which led to Johnny Gargano making his way out after Ciampa. However, ‘The Blackheart’ was able to thwart off the distraction and Aleister Black, picking up the pinfall to win the title:

WWE News: Titus O’Neil Speaks Out On Hulk Hogan’s Return, Reports He Stormed Out

Published

on

The news of Hulk Hogan’s reinstatement into the WWE Hall Of Fame this past Sunday prior to the Extreme Rules pay-per-view has remained a hot topic not only among the fans, but also some of the WWE Superstars as well. After WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry offered his thoughts to TMZ Sports this week (find that here), today The New Day addressed their feelings on the situation with a post on Twitter (read that here).

Another Superstar who has been a topic of discussion with rumors swirling regarding how he reacted to the locker room’s meeting with Hogan (find out more about that here) has been Titus O’Neil. A number of false reports surfaced this week claiming Titus stormed out of the PPG Paints Arena in frustration with Hogan’s return and now Titus has issued his own statement on Hulk’s reinstatement to the Hall Of Fame, as well as the rumors surrounding his reaction:

“To my gracious fans and the WWE Universe. 

The reports and rumors concerning my boycotting “Extreme Rules” in Pittsburgh is false and inaccurate. I was not scheduled to attend or be a participant in the “Extreme Rules” match/production and was otherwise not booked for the show.

The talent present in Pittsburgh, which I was a part of, was asked to attend a mandatory meeting in which Mr. Terry Bollea addressed everyone and informed the same that he would be reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame. At no point during, after or otherwise did I make any scene concerning Mr. Bollea’s communication to the talent. In addition, let it be known that I did not refuse to shake Mr. Bollea’s hand; we did not have any type of one-on-one interaction whatsoever that would or did necessitate any exchange between us individually. 

As to the reinstatement of Mr. Bollea, I can only communicate that I am a proponent of second and even third chances for individuals that show true remorse, acknowledgment of wrongdoing, fulfill their punishment, if applicable, and otherwise put forth sincere efforts to correct the issues. 

Unfortunately, I must echo the sentiment and dissatisfaction expressed by many of my fellow contemporaries concerning Mr. Bollea’s apology and its lack of true contrition, remorse and a desire to change. Mr. Bollea’s apology “that he didn’t know he was being recorded” is not remorse for the hateful and violent utterances he made which reprise language that has caused violence against blacks and minorities for centuries.

I stand firm in my position that Mr. Bollea is entitled to reinstatement; he was and is a role model, hero and icon to countless people. I hope that Mr. Bollea’s missteps in communicating to the WWE talent in Pittsburgh are not repeated to his fans and I expect that he shall pursue an agenda that clearly communicates to all third parties that his language was inappropriate, wrong and should not be tolerated in a civilized and inclusive society.

As the father of two young black men, I have spent their entire life and the majority of my adult life with a singular focus; being a role model for my children and young black boys and girls. I take tremendous pride in my charity work and the community outreach programs that I have fostered via the platform I have been given. I teach my sons love and tolerance for everybody, but I also teach them to operate in truth and respect.

I hope this clears up any confusion. I, like New Day, will continue to use my platform to positively affect, entertain, embrace, celebrate and love people from all backgrounds both inside and outside of the WWE Universe.

Sincerely,

Thaddeus Bullard aka Titus O’Neil”
