Austin Aries has a New Look

I did an A-Double take. Austin Aries left WWE in a pretty big surprise earlier this month, allegedly due to being unhappy with how things were going during his run with the company. Since he’s left, Aries has already changed the way he looks in a fairly dramatic way and has debuted his new look.


Aries posted a new picture to his Twitter account, showing a shaved head and a clean shaven face. He referred to himself as Pitbull’s twin and made a mention of the Kurt Angle/Jason Jordan storyline. There is no word on when/where Aries will wrestle again but any TV or pay per view appearances must wait until his ninety day no compete clause expires.

Wow! First it’s revealed I’m @pitbull twin brother and now @JasonJordanJJ is @RealKurtAngle son!? Crazy!! ???https://t.co/3SU4BD6OWr pic.twitter.com/NJxyybLYQx

Opinion: If this is what Aries wants to do, good for him. I have no idea what he was thinking during his time in WWE but if he wasn’t happy and WWE was cool with releasing him, at least it was a pretty clean split. He’ll go back to the indy circuit and be a huge star and I’m sure we’ll see him again elsewhere.

Where do you want to see Aries wind up? Where do you want to see him go? Let us know in the comments below.

Paige’s Family Removes Alberto El Patron as the Champion in Their Promotion


There is no shortage of news by any means when it comes to Alberto El Patron and Paige. The couple seem to bring it with them wherever they go. From the allegations of abuse to the threats El Patron has made, people are turning against them every day.

[This post contains video, click to play]

While the video above, taken from Impact Wrestling which we suggest you watch, seems to indicate that El Patron is adamant about showcasing his family, we have learned over time that he and Paige want their space away from the public eye. They want privacy, but can’t seem to get it.

WrestlingInc is reporting that Paige’s family have stripped Alberto El Patron of their main Championship following the allegations made on El Patron over the past few weeks.

According to the World Association of Wrestling (WAW), it appears that Alberto El Patron has now been stripped of their WAW Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship. This is likely due to a number of factors, including the allegations that have been made against El Patron as he was also suspended from GFW. However, the main reason is undoubtedly due to the owners of WAW being Paige’s real family, with the main owner being Ricky Knight, Paige’s father. Her family has been open in them not approving of her relationship with El Patron and this was likely seen as the final straw.

The promotion has issued a statement about an upcoming 32-man tournament to crown a new WAW Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion. It should be noted, however, that the promotion does not mention El Patron in the statement.

“The WAW Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship has been declared vacant at last night’s Academy Show in Costessey, following a unanimous decision by the WAW Championship Committee. The WAWCC’s decision was announced by Zak Knight but no information was revealed regarding the crowning of a new champion. Since the announcement several individuals have announced their desire to compete for the title. Both European Heavyweight Champion Robin Lekime and British Heavyweight Champion Aaron Sharp have already revealed their desire to add more gold to their repertoire, as well as former World Heavyweight Champion Brad Slayer and former European Heavyweight Champion King Kendo. With four of WAW’s top competitors already eyeing up the most prestigious title will anyone else step forward in the hope of gaining public support?

A 32 man tournament has been announced to determine a new Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion over the course of the rest of 2017 with the final taking place at Epic Studios, Norwich in December. The entrants into this tournament will be deliberated by the WAWCC over the coming weeks before brackets are announced.”

If any more news does come out about this situation, Wrestling Rumors will provide you with new updates.

Editor’s Note:

I don’t blame the family for taking the actions they did. They don’t like El Patron doing what he is reportedly doing to Paige. One can only assume they know more about the situation than any of us do.

What are your thoughts on this situation? Is this too far? Let us know in the comments below or over on our Facebook page or Twitter account. Additionally, you can find me on Twitter at @SOSNH1995.

Emma Unhappy About Not Being Used on WWE TV


I wouldn’t be happy either. Emma has had a rough time in WWE, ranging from a host of injuries to the Emmalina fiasco to barely being able to get on TV. As you might expect, this hasn’t sat well with her, especially on what was a fairly big anniversary of her time with the company last night.

July 17 was Emma’s five year anniversary with WWE and she spent it sitting in the back, watching the show instead of being featured. This led to her to go on Twitter and vent her frustrations with the company, including talking about how various other women are getting chances to perform while she’s sitting in the back. Here are the Tweets:

Here in #WWENashville watching Alexa Vs Bayley… Then Sasha and Nia.. Love watching others get more opportunities that I never get! Cool..?

— EMMA (@EmmaWWE) July 18, 2017

Sitting backstage at #RAW on my 5yrs with @WWE… Happy Anniversary to me! ?#RAWNashville

— EMMA (@EmmaWWE) July 18, 2017

[This post contains video, click to play]

Opinion: I can’t say I disagree with her. Emma has been around for a good while now and it’s hard to blame her for the whole Emmalina fiasco. The big argument I could imagine from WWE’s perspective though is Emma doesn’t stay healthy long enough to warrant investing time into her character. Maybe that can change but for now, I feel sorry for her having put in so much effort and not even being given a spot on “Main Event” every now and then.

Do you want to see more of Emma? Why do you think she hasn’t been on WWE TV much? Let us know in the comments below.

Wrestling Rumors Official Smackdown Live Preview – Tuesday, July 18, 2017


Tonight’s episode of Smackdown Live emanates from the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama. With “Battleground” this Sunday, here’s what we can expect for tonight’s show:

Jinder Mahal brings the Punjabi Prison to SmackDown LIVE

[This post contains video, click to play]

Tonight, we get to see the return of the Punjabi Prison as Jinder Mahal sets to defend the WWE Championship inside the demonic structure this Sunday, against Randy Orton. I imagine we’ll get a recap of how exactly the structure works, but I do expect that “The Viper” will get the upper hand on the “Maharaja,” in order to spook him before Sunday.

WWE Battleground opponents square off in tag team showdown

I cannot wait for this one. AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura are teaming up against Kevin Owens and Baron Corbin in a tag team match between competitors at “Battleground.” I don’t even want to give a prediction in this one; I just want to see four of the best in the business give us what will be an amazing match up.

John Cena to address Flag Match in exclusive interview

[This post contains video, click to play]

Two weeks ago, on the July 4 episode of “Smackdown Live,” John Cena made his triumphant return to the company. However, he was quickly interrupted by a returning Rusev, and a “Flag Match” was made between the two foes for “Battleground.”

I expect to see another fantastic Cena promo as he hypes up the entire WWE Universe for his match with “The Bulgarian Brute.” Anyone who says that the leader of the “CeNation” doesn’t have it anymore is absolutely insane.

Mike Kanellis to make in-ring debut against Sami Zayn

[This post contains video, click to play]

Love hurts. Tonight on “Smackdown Live,” we finally get to see the in-ring debut of Mike Kanellis. After a brutal encounter between himself, his wife Maria and Sami Zayn last week, I expect a hard-hitting and fun contest, with the “power of love” triumphing over all.

Will Breezango find the truth?

[This post contains video, click to play]

I love Breezango. They are one of the most entertaining acts on “Smackdown Live,” and each week, they continue to up their game. What wacky, wild and crazy adventures will they have next? While I don’t know the answer to this, all I do know is that “the truth is not H.”

The world of acting as part of the SMASH Netflix series “GLOW” as Kevin Kiley Jr. (FKA Alex Riley) joins today’s program. Address the longstanding rumors of his tension with John Cena and if that played a part into his departure from the company. The full episode is available at this download link.

Alex Riley On John Cena Incident That Affected His Career:

“I guess I’m not saying anything that other people haven’t already kind of said. It is kind of out there but I’ll say this. There was an incident and it certainly affected the path of my career, however I am not going to talk about it right now and I’ve kind of gone back and fourth in my own times morally with do I say anything or do I not. I am not in the habit of destroying anybodies career so it is just something at this point that I don’t want to address further than that but one day I certainly will. It was a hard situation to deal with.”

– Konnan posted the following on Twitter, showing that he and Rey Mysterio caught up with R-Truth in Nashville last nigh.

WWE Superstars React to Jason Jordan Being Kurt Angle’s Son

[This post contains video, click to play]


The biggest story to come out of last night’s “Raw,” was the big reveal that former American Alpha member Jason Jordan was, in fact, the long lost son of General Manager Kurt Angle. Jordan would then be announced as the newest member of the “red brand’s” roster.

This is a storyline that has been developing for weeks, and even included Corey Graves, who is a current member of the “Raw” announcing team.

Naturally, this sent shockwaves into the hearts of all members of the WWE Universe.  This included several superstars, who tweeted out their thoughts as the night went on:

Ummmmm….. what?

— Chad Gable (@WWEGable) July 18, 2017

I am proud to be Gold-Blooded!!

— Jason Jordan (@JasonJordanJJ) July 18, 2017

Don’t worry, son, you’ll find out who your REAL father is next week on #SmackdownLive… oh wait, did I give it away by calling you son? https://t.co/ukjDKkupl5

— Daniel Bryan (@WWEDanielBryan) July 18, 2017

So @JasonJordanJJ wants to be a star on @WWE #RAW?! Step into my Star FACTory. We will make it official.

— Brian Myers (@TheCurtHawkins) July 18, 2017

If you can’t see the resemblance between @RealKurtAngle and his son @JasonJordanJJ get your eyes checked #Raw

— James Ellsworth (@realellsworth) July 18, 2017

The American Hero/American Alpha#RAW

— Cathy Kelley (@catherinekelley) July 18, 2017

Editor’s Note:

I have to admit that when I first heard the news about the conclusion of this storyline, I was a bit perplexed and didn’t know what to think. But the more that I think about it, this might actually work. Jason Jordan is a very capable performer and was not being utilized as a member of American Alpha, so why not give him something else to do? I’m curious to see where WWE goes with this as they have made us believers in the past when we questioned their logic.

What do you think of the announcement that Jason Jordan is Kurt Angle’s son? Leave us a comment below, or post a comment on our Facebook page!

Kevin Owens Responds To Rumors Of ‘His Nude Leaked Photos’

– Kevin Owens was apparently part of an online hoax that claimed there were “leaked nude photos” of him. You can check out some of the social media responses below:

kevin owens got his nudes leaked?? omg

— f (@bexpIoder) July 18, 2017

oh good lord, Kevin Owens got his nudes leaked now?

— James (@41Betrayals) July 18, 2017

literally a thread of reactions to “kevin owens’ nudes leaked” from @thebasedparker pic.twitter.com/txE4IAbUSW

— sad nut boy (@tommythiccles) July 18, 2017

Owens responded on his Twitter account on Monday night and shot down the rumors:

Just landed in Birmingham and saw these ridiculous claims. How laughable! There’s some incredibly pathetic people out there. Get a life!

— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) July 18, 2017

Owens was recently in the news for applauding WWE’s initiative to cancel Talking Smack. He dropped the United States title to AJ Styles at the company’s live event at Madison Square Garden earlier this month.

If you think that’s actually me, you’re as dumb as the morons who started this stupidity.

— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) July 18, 2017

Although I have to admit that I’m now considering getting a nipple piercing.
