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.

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.





What do you think Paige’s role will be going forward? Let us know on social media @theCHAIRSHOTcom and always remember to use the hashtag #UseYourHead!
