Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – Women’s Tournament, Bobby Roode Deserves Main Roster, Is the PPV Model Dead? More!

0

Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane and Glenn Gilbertti (Disco Inferno).

Russo asks Gilbertti about the ongoing criticism towards Jinder Mahal by some wrestling fans, who accuse him of taking steroids. Gilbertti informs that he has tried steroids in the past and from his experience, it’s entirely possible to look the way Mahal does without taking steroids. With a lot of hard work in the gym and a good diet you can achieve a physique such as Mahal’s.

Lane informs that IMPACT Wrestling and Ed Nordholm are discussing bringing Billy Corgan back into the fold, to help mediate the discussions between the promotion and Matt Hardy. The thought is that Corgan can be of some value when it comes to bridging the gap between all the parties concerning the Broken Universe.

Russo says that Nordholm has far too many distractions right now, and his recent memo to wrestling media is a prime example of this. In this memo, Nordholm made public various private conversations between himself and Matt Hardy in an attempt to prove that he has been telling the truth. Russo says that Nordholm should be more focused on trying to revive IMPACT’s on-air product.

The Spike TV network in the UK aired the wrong episode of Impact Wrestling last week. This isn’t the first time that the wrong episode has been aired. It was noted a while back that The Fight Network aired the wrong week as well due to the copy of the episode getting corrupted just before the initial broadcast. They ended up airing the previous week’s show.

Spike TV issued the following statement on Twitter regarding the wrong episode being aired:

John Morrison on WWE & Impact Copying Lucha Underground

0

While speaking to the Buzzards Wrestling Podcast, former WWE Superstar John Morrison asked about WWE and Impact Wrestling copying Lucha Underground’s filming style for matches like “House of Horrors” and “Total Non Stop Deletion.” Morrison responded:

“Totally agree. I feel like Lucha Underground was the first promotion that’s really integrated the gritty, action movie feel with wrestling. Shooting the vignettes that stitch Lucha Underground together, with coverage like a TV show or a movie has set that trend.

“You’re right, the Total Deletion and WWE House of Horrors and even some of the costumes in WWE. I feel the trends were started in Lucha Underground.”

Hulk Hogan Reportedly In Negotiations with Vince McMahon for WWE Return

0

Hulk Hogan recently told fans at an autograph signing that he is in negotiations with Vince McMahon to return to WWE.

“Hulk Hogan did an autograph signing over the weekend in Los Angeles and when asked about the obvious question, just said he and Vince are talking,” Dave Meltzer said in the May 8, 2017, issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

“Then again, it is Hogan. The answer to the question of his returning is always about when the feeling it is a time when the company feels there will be no potential sponsor backlash.”

As noted earlier today, The Hulkster was featured on a double-sided poster in the WWE Kids magazine that was being handed out during WWE’s recent tour overseas. This is another indication of his return to the company.

Shinsuke Nakamura Booked In Title Matches Against Jinder Mahal

Shinsuke Nakamura is set to take part in some WWE Championship matches sooner than some may have thought. He is currently being advertised to wrestle champion Jinder Mahal in several house show matches in the early part of July.

While Nakamura has been announced as a participant in the Money In The Bank match, these upcoming house show bouts aren’t necessarily indicative of WWE’s creative direction this summer. With Randy Orton being taken off of several upcoming shows, it’s highly plausible that Nakamura is simply a replacement for Orton on the shows. Time will tell.

John Cena Talks Wanting To Return Home To WWE

As we’ve reported in the past, John Cena is currently on hiatus from WWE until around the time of SummerSlam. He is being promoted for the July 4 edition of RAW in Phoenix, likely a one time appearance with a patriotic theme. However, don’t expect him back full time for a couple of months.

John is clearly getting the itch to come back and commented recently on Twitter.
