FoxNews.com has so little editorial review or standards that articles like that probably go up because of random people interested without actually having to work it through normal channels of "is this newsworthy." Its good in this case but its kind of a broken clock. Like normally it means conspiracy theories and paying off people to lie and poo poo.

The fact that Saudi Arabia murdering an American reporter is all over the news and no one gives a poo poo or has probably even noticed that a multi billion dollar American media company is about to hold a big event there is some pretty convincing evidence about how low in regard WWE actually is to the world. If that was an NFL or even a NHL game someone would probably be talking about it beyond FoxNews.com. Hell, if Seaworld was holding a whale show people would probably care more. No one expects anything decent from WWE including its fans.

I'm kind of mildly curious if there's any kind of discussion at ESPN about this, though. But I guess they're used to covering bad leagues.

Its like:

"Rumors that WWE will introduce a women's tag team belt for them."
"The Bellas return."
"Two Hall of Famers return to team up."
"Yeah, I see what's happening. The finals of that tournament is not going to be Sasha & Bayley vs the Iconics.

I enjoyed Mike Johnson's contribution.

quote:

“But I just want to say that the fact they’re in business with this government going forward is disgusting and I probably should have said it’s disgusting since day one.”

Ya think?

It would be cool to be in the timeline where there was like some actual wrestling journalism and like HBK had to address reporters' questions about his return and this.

Not essentially watching. But if you are interested in Titus this mini doc is fabulous:

The main roster/Vince's refusal to present wrestlers as people and present their life stories remains a huge miss. I still get the larger than life thing but the culture has changed to everyone but WWE.

It'd be hilarious if WWE's Saudi meal ticket is snatched away after just one show. But realistically they'll just ignore this/rationalize this away, and the only consequence is some hardcore fans concern trolling about it while live tweeting Raw.

The WWE Hall of Fame President is already on record of "Its sad but they already bought our support and we don't want to give the money back, so oh well. Besides, he wasn't even a real American."

So WWE has its precedent.
