Based on reports, WWE is said to not be planning on punishing any of the talents involved in the leaked Paige sex video [Paige or Xavier Woods.] Brad Maddox is no longer with the company.
WWE is looking to wait for it to blow over and has not been requested by any sponsorship to act. Meltzer listed a few reasons why WWE wouldn’t punish any of them, two of which are that New Day are over with the audience, and punishing those who are victims of a leaked video would not look good on them. In addition WWE are also in talks for a Hulk Hogan return following his scandal involving a leaked sex tape, so again, it wouldn’t look good on them.
MOC: Personally I believe this is a good call by WWE, especially if reports are true regarding Paige’s mental health.

WWE COO Triple H was interviewed earlier today by several ESPN shows to hype WrestleMania 33. You can watch one of his interviews posted by ESPN:
WWE issued the following:
Former Raw General Manager and WCW figurehead Eric Bischoff will induct his close friend, Diamond Dallas Page, into the WWE Hall of Fame on Friday, March 31, live on WWE Network.
“I’m honored,” Bischoff told WWE.com in an exclusive interview. “It puts a smile on my face because I know how much it means to him. This is the Holy Grail for him.”
Page and Bischoff’s relationship dates to the late ‘80s, when the two started out as part of WWE Hall of Famer Verne Gagne’s AWA – Bischoff as an announcer and DDP as the outlandish manager of Badd Company. The two eventually headed toward WCW, where Bischoff had an up-close view of DDP’s ascent from wrestling obscurity to superstardom as a champion of the people in WCW’s fight against the nWo.
“So many [wrestlers] are larger than life,” Bischoff said. “They look like they walked right off a movie screen and stepped into the arena. Diamond Dallas Page didn’t have that larger-than-life persona, but he had a different connection with the audience.”
“When [Page] finally hit pay dirt is when he finally shed all the over-the top-stuff,” he continued. “The bling and girls and cigars … [He] just became a real person, coming down from the crowd. That said, ‘I’m one of you.’“
As Bischoff quickly learned, the persona Page projected in the ring worked because it was real.
“His journey [in life] is similar to his journey in the ring,” he said. “DDP was the common guy, the every man, a blue-collar guy from New Jersey. He represented something that the average person could believe in, in a way that was a little unique. [People thought] ‘That could be me. If I could just get that break, work a little harder, I could be that guy.’ That’s a very inspirational quality to have.”
Bischoff is incredibly excited to present DDP to the WWE Universe as a member of the Hall’s Class of 2017, though he admits a few nerves are bubbling up.
“It’s a little overwhelming, in some respects,” he said. “But I’ll save the reasons why for the ceremony itself, because they’re very personal and poignant.”
What will the always-controversial Eric Bischoff have to say? Find out when he inducts Diamond Dallas Page into the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2017 Induction Ceremony, live on WWE Network Friday, March 31 at 8 ET/5 PT.

As most of you already know, Paige has had a pretty rough week in the world of wrestling following the leaked nude images and sex video involving her, Brad Maddox & Xavier Woods.
Paige’s mother and father both took to social media earlier yesturday and expressed their concerns over their daughters mental health and how this situation is effecting the entire family.
See the comments below:
“I cannot lose my little girl!! The whole family has taken so much sh**, being blasted from all angles. But none of this is worth it. There is a broken soul here. I am on the verge of breaking over this and I cannot deal with anymore. We are crushed. I really don’t know how much more I can take, well done to those that thought this was a great idea, well done to those tagging us in pics and videos. You have done what you wanted to do let’s hope to God you don’t take from me one of my most treasured gifts. My last say on the scandal surrounding my daughter I have just spoken to her over Facebook and I am worried for her mental health or worse ffs world get a grip she has not killed anyone robbed anyone she was having sex in a private situation between consulting adults and then has been betrayed by some low lifes as her dad I urge people to back off as I say I am very worried for her it will be no good backing her when its too late like many other celebrities who have left us.”
