WWE Rumors: Did WWE Purposely Create A Rift Between Colt Cabana & CM Punk?

Published

on

As has been noted this week, the saga between WWE Doctor Chris Amann, Colt Cabana and CM Punk isn’t quite over for all parties as Cabana has now filed a lawsuit against Punk, alleging that he backed off on his word to cover Colt’s legal fees stemming from the Amann lawsuit (read about that here).

More details regarding the spat between the now-former friends also emerged, as Cabana alleges he also received an email from Punk that looks to be quite damning for the former WWE Champion (check that out here). However, some are speculating that perhaps this is all WWE’s doing and may very well have been one of their goals from the outset.

On the recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer has speculated that WWE may have planned the rift, hoping that Punk would turn on Cabana at some point in the legal process. While it clearly did not have any bearing on the verdict of the Amann lawsuit, if this is the case then WWE has certainly succeeded.

EA’s Take: What the…what? Conspiracy theories much? To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to cover this and give Meltzer any more free pub than he already gets. However, I felt that I needed to take this opportunity to offer my opinion, which is this…ARE YOU F******* KIDDING ME? To me this screams, “Let’s throw some s*** at the wall and see if it sticks”. It’s no secret that CM Punk is a dick, no two-ways about it. He’s turned on other friends for a lot less, just ask Hornswoggle. I mean, I GUESS I can see why Meltzer would say this if you want to play devil’s advocate, but man, it’s a REALLY hard sell for me and I just don’t buy it. How could WWE know for a fact that something like this would happen? They wouldn’t. It’s just complete and utter stupidity to me that Meltzer would throw this out there. What exactly is HIS goal by saying it? I honestly don’t have any idea, it makes no sense and I don’t know what the reasoning would be. Probably because there’s little-to-NO reasoning to it at all. I think your phone’s ringing Dave, Alex Jones wants to speak with you and be friends.

Jimmy Jacobs On WWE’s Ratings, Seth Rollins & Matt Jackson Respond

Published

WWE RAW
Jimmy Jacobs defends against criticism of WWE’s recent RAW ratings!

To say that many fans and members of the wrestling media have been taking WWE to task in recent weeks over the ratings, most specifically for Monday Night RAW, would definitely be called an understatement.





After declining viewership for three consecutive weeks and record lows (check out this week’s numbers), the criticism of the company’s booking has not been hard to find. So much so that it has even been put into angles on television, as we saw this past Monday with the opening segment involving Seth Rollins and Baron Corbin. When the ratings for the red brand were revealed yesterday, The Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on the results:

One person who took notice and would actually come to WWE’s defense would be former member of the company’s creative team and current independent star, Jimmy Jacobs. Jacobs was let go last year after he took a photo with members of The Bullet Club while they were outside of a Monday Night RAW taping. Now competing for the likes of MLW and IMPACT Wrestling, Jacobs was quick to point out the other side of the coin to Alvarez:

Not only did this earn a reply from WWE Superstar Seth Rollins, but interestingly enough, Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks would also agree with Jacobs:

Jacobs would continue, replying to a number of fan responses:

WWE News: Updated Card For TLC Following Additions/Changes This Week

Published

on

TLC Orton Rey
The updated card for Sunday’s WWE TLC!

Now that this week’s editions of Monday Night RAW, SmackDown Live and the Mixed Match Challenge are officially in the books, the WWE Universe turns its attention to Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view.





There were some alterations and additions to the card at the SAP Center in San Jose, California, but not the ones some fans expected with Braun Strowman still recovering from surgery and Finn Balor off of the road due to an illness (read that story here). On RAW, we learned that the Elias vs. Bobby Lashley bout will now be a Ladder Match where a guitar will be hanging above the ring and the first main to gain possession can utilize it (see the announcement here).

Then yesterday, it was announced that Buddy Murphy would defend his Cruiserweight Title against Cedric Alexander (find that here) and on SmackDown Live last night, it was revealed that Randy Orton would take on Rey Mysterio in a Chairs Match (check that out here). Plus, the Finals of the Mixed Match Challenge are now set after Carmella and R-Truth, as well as Alicia Fox and Jinder Mahal solidified their spots (read the breakdown with Mitchell’s Mixed Match Challenge Report).

Here’s a look at the updated lineup for TLC, which you can catch Sunday live on pay-per-view and the WWE Network (Mixed Match Challenge Finals will also live stream on Facebook Watch) beginning at 7PM EST with the Kickoff starting at 6PM. At this time, it’s not known what will be on the Kickoff, however it’s speculated one or two matches will be moved there instead of any new ones being announced. Of course, that’s not confirmed:

Tables, Ladders & Chairs for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
