Undertaker plans on wrestling beyond WrestleMania 32


While it was expected for a few years that the Undertaker would try to work until Wrestlemania 32, which will be held in his hometown of Texas at Cowboys Stadium, and then retire after that show, things might be for a change. The general talk within WWE believe now that the Undertaker is talking about retiring immediately. Jim Ross, a friend of Undertaker, also noted on his blog last week that he doesn’t believe that Taker’s last match will be at WrestleMania 32.
It will be interesting to know how WWE plans out the rest of the Undertaker’s career as many potential marquee matches remains to be held including the much talked about and anticipated match with Sting and John Cena.

Donal Trump inspires a wrestling character


Republican party’s candidate for the 2016 presidential elections Donald Trump has apparently inspired a pro-wrestling character as someone from California’s Pro Wrestling Revolution has applied to trademark the name “Hijo De Trump”.

NXT‘s up and coming diva Nhooph Al-Areebi, who is from Toronto Canada, might be next in line to get the wrath of social media scrutiny after Zahra Schreiber was released last week due to offensive comments made years ago.
A range of offensive tweets towards black community posted on her Twitter account years ago surfaced on Reddit tuesday night.
In a tweet dated Feb 11, 2012, the then 17 years old wrote “Ugh…fucking n**gers…that’s why I chose white folk. Hmph”. She further continued that day tweeting “why are black people so horny” in a response to a twitter user who tweet this: “mind if I lick between your Toes to get the salt glue off baby mmmmmmmm jam.”
There’s also a tweet dated Sep 22, 2011 where she wrote “nigga lips” to a user. Also last year she posted on her Instagram a photograph of herself and a black wrestler where she referred to him as her slave. “My slave Preston Myles needs stop acting like I weigh 200 lbs!”. “Someone buy me a whip plz!”
After the news gained steam, Al Areebi deactivated her Twitter account as well as removed the Instagram photo.

WWE holds meeting with NXT talents over bonus pay


WWE apparently held a meeting with all the NXT roster at the Performance Center in Orlando last week. The talents were told that they will be paid based on their development deals and will not be receiving bonuses for the NXT Takeover specials or the upcoming UK tour in December. The reasons were said to be that NXT is currently running at a loss as it is heavily investing back to improve the brand’s long term standing, as well as the costs of running and operating the state of the art WWE Performance Center which makes it unreasonable to go on with bonus model for wrestlers’ income.

Kurt Angle was interviewed by the Mark Madden’ radio show and revealed that he is not going to continue with TNA after his current deal expires at the end of 2015. Below are some of the highlights:

Angle says he wants to take a break from pro-wrestling and therefore is not going to sign the deal with TNA. Although Angle will be at this year’s Bound for Glory pay-per-view next month.

He won’t be trying to get into the WWE during the break.

He is not sure of the situation between TNA and Destination America, saying nothing has been said to him about the matter. He says he hopes that something works out as there are many great talents in TNA.

He says he’s dedicated to TNA until his deal expires and then see what happens, adding that TNA has always treated him well. He says people don’t really know how good Dixie Carter has been to him.

He says a WWE return is always possible for a final match but he’s currently not desperate to do anything so he can retire. Angle says he’s happy with his career and will decide further about the next steps in his time off.
