Sasha Banks Fed Up with People Asking About Her Turning Heel

0

While speaking to The Mask Men Show, Sasha banks was asked if she preferred working as a heel or a babyface character. She responded with the following remarks to the question:

“Either one. Because a lot of people ask me, ‘When are you going to turn heel? When are you going to turn heel?’’ Like, I don’t care because guess what? I’m going to be in the WWE for a very long time so you’re going to see both versions of myself for a while. So people need to shut up because that’s what I’m sick of hearing. ‘When are you gonna turn heel?’ Then once I turn heel, ‘When are you gonna turn babyface?’ You guys just need to shut up and let me do me okay. Why do you want me to turn on Bayley? That’s my best friend. I don’t have a lot of friends so just accept it. Yeah, I play either one very well, so it doesn’t matter. They’re two different versions.”

Insane Championship Wrestling recently revealed that WWE’s 205 Live star, Noam Dar is set to make a high profile return to the promotion for one night only. The ‘Scottish Supernova’ will appear at the Shug’s Hoose Party event on Sunday 29th June at Glasgow’s O2 ABC.

Dar will join forces with Sha Samuels to take on Grado and ICW World Heavyweight Champion, Joe Coffey. Tickets for the event can be purchased here at Ticketmaster.

Ring of Honor Wrestling (ROH) has signed a new television deal to broadcast their product in India. The deal was made with Discovery Communications and their new DSPORT television network in India.

Obviously, India has been a hot topic in the wrestling world of late. The WWE Championship was put on Jinder Mahal in part due to WWE’s desire to expand into the country of 1.311 billion people. Impact Wrestling is currently preparing for a series of television tapings in the country. Representing roughly 17 percent of the entire world’s population, India is a huge untapped market for North American wrestling.

The DSPORT Network, which has been on the air for less than one year, is currently available in around 70 million homes in India. In addition to their eventual ROH coverage, the network also airs other sports from the U.S., China, Brazil, Portugal, the U.K., and Ireland. Notably, DSPORT airs the U.S. PGA Championship, the British Open, the LPGA, Rugby Six, and horse racing. It is considered a premium sports network.

DSPORT’s viewership base of 70 million homes is less than have access to the USA Network (WWE) in the United States (95 million). However, it is an in-road to a huge market with lots of growth potential.

WWE Extreme Rules Gets Mixed Tag Match

With tonight being the WWE Extreme Rules go-home episode of RAW, more matches are being announced for Sunday’s show. Just this afternoon, we learned that we will be getting a mixed-tag team bout added to the card.

As we’ve seen over the past few weeks, Alicia Fox and Sasha Banks aren’t the best of friends. After Sasha beat Foxy on last week’s RAW, and smacked Noam Dar around after the match, it looks like the ladies have grabbed their respective Cruiserweights for this mixed-tag match, and on Sunday, we will see Sasha Banks team up with Rich Swann to take on Alicia Fox and Noam Dar.

Though it’s unknown right now, this will probably end up being a preshow match.

WWE Extreme Rules Updated Card

I am guessing we will get one more match announced on tonight’s RAW, probably Goldust vs R-Truth, but other than that, it appears that Sunday’s Extreme Rules card is pretty much set.

WWE Universal Title #1 Contender
Fatal Five Way Match
Seth Rollins vs Samoa Joe vs Finn Bálor vs Bray Wyatt vs Roman Reigns.

RAW Women’s Title
Kendo Stick On A Pole Match
Alexa Bliss vs Bayley.

WWE Intercontinental Title
Title Can Change Hands On A DQ
Dean Ambrose vs The Miz.

WWE Cruiserweight Title
Submission Match
Neville vs Austin Aries.

RAW Tag Team Title
Steel Cage Match

The Hardys vs Cesaro and Sheamus.

With Asuka officially passing Goldberg’s WCW undefeated streak, WWE has started to push it on social media after basically ignoring it up until now. It all started when Triple H and Stephanie put her over on social media with the following tweets:

After that, they released a t-shirt at WWE shop touting her career milestone:

It was previously reported last week via Pro Wrestling Sheet that WWE has plans to have a first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match at this year’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view event.

In an update, Dave Meltzer reported on today’s installment the Wrestling Observer Radio that if the company still has plans to have the bout, WWE will setup the match during this week’s episode of SmackDown Live.

Meltzer said that he expects that only four female competitors will participate in the match. Meltzer also added that if the match could be switched to five competitors if they decide to bring someone up fron NXT. Meltzer did not indicate on who that person could be. We will keep you updated if we hear anything else.

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.
