As reported, Netflix is looking to add a new series to their line-up focusing on GLOW (Glorious Ladies of Wrestling) promotion which was founded back in 1986. Chavo Guerrero Jr, is heading this new series and released a teaser for it via Instagram.
As reported Vince McMahon cut Paul Heyman’s promo short this past Raw due to the audience focusing too heavily on Brock Lesnar and chanted that Goldberg sucked. Paul Heyman commented on that promo in relation to an ESPN.com’s recent story titled, Paul Heyman defines the art of the wrestling promo:
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is set to debut his “Rock The Promo” show on his new Youtube channel. The idea of the show features fans sending in wrestling-style promos with wrestling personalities judging them. There will be a 32-person bracket competition.
Taz who has been doing the same thing since the beginning of his CBS Radio series “The Taz Show”, wasn’t happy with the news and tweeted the following:
Since multiple rumors of AJ Styles appearing at the Royal Rumble have been running rampant, AJ’s gone on to say that he won’t be at the event, until now.
A fan brought to the attention of MOC that during a live event that took place tonight for Revolution Pro Wrestling (RPW); AJ did a promo saying that if he’s not suffering from an injury and if there’s a spot at the Royal Rumble. The fan cut AJ off as they give him a loud reaction and the video cuts off. It’s unknown what the rest of the promo is, but if AJ’s mentioning the Royal Rumble, it’s a good sign he may be there.
– Sting’s promo on Monday’s RAW has his voice altered and was inspired by 1990′s gimmick The Black Scorpion, which was played by several wrestlers and feuded with Sting. There was a lot of “head scratching” backstage at RAW over why they would alter his voice. One source commented that they didn’t know what the issue was with getting Sting in the ring with a live mic, but “it is what it is.”
– MOC is hearing WWE will be making some pretty significant indie talent signings for NXT some time after the WrestleMania 31 Revenge Tour is over.
– Konnor and Viktor of The Ascension are the latest NXT stars that have failed to transition to WWE’s main roster successfully. Their stock has fallen a lot lately, as is clear by how they’ve been booked on WWE TV since losing to The Prime Time Players on RAW a few weeks back. Word is that their push is “dead” and they’re not expected for the WWE Tag Team Title match at WrestleMania 31.
In a post on his official Facebook page, former Road Warrior member, Road Warrior Animal, posted a response to The Ascension’s recent Raw promo that took a shot at the team. You can read his statement below:
“The idiots in charge make the call everyone knows how stupid it is to copy icons yet they still do it. Do it in a mocking fashion to get heat I understand do it in a disrespectful way well that’s another issue that’s low and has no place in the business.
Where does it end and I usually are just are playing when I comment but this one is a shoot I believe they should have had Me Animal find a team. For some undetected odd reason they don’t do it. They missed the boat with Ascension and they missed it when my brother John was in the ring both great times to bring me in and they missed it.
They need to go to their merchandise numbers today and see we rank up with the main roster on selling merchandise for a reason.
