Matt Riddle rejects Undertaker ‘fight’ in WWE
The Undertaker became a subject of controversy after he shared his views on today’s professional wrestlers last month. The Undertaker said he has a hard time enjoying WWE as a fan as it is too “soft” for him. The Phenom also stated that he preferred the WWE Superstars of his wrestling era as they were “real men” compared to the WWE Superstars of today.
Several professional wrestlers from different promotions weighed in on what he said and it now appears that a current WWE Champion also shared his thoughts on the matter.
“Pro wrestling is the most outrageous high school you’ve ever attended. Monday Night Raw is like, ‘what’s going to happen this week?’ If someone has a problem with someone, no one says it. It’s always like “pst pst”. I wonder why we hear things like this? Say something, do something! I’m not saying you have to go the route of The Undertaker and fighting each other and being men about it! I’m saying let’s talk about it. But hey, it is what it is! “
Triple H’s WrestleMania 37 match revealed
Triple H does not currently have a WWE WrestleMania 37 match, but he has his eyes on a big name, and sadly he is not AJ Styles. Triple H was accused of “stealing” by Jon Moxley Recently.
He told The Good Time Show: “Let me turn to Elon Musk because I feel there is a lack of respect here. Because I don’t know if he has a superiority complex because he is a rocket scientist, a self taught rocket scientist, right? What a thing. He’s a guy who revolutionized the electric car, all because he wanted to get rockets to Mars. Wow. He taught himself how to build cars, he taught himself how to revolutionize the auto industry, he taught himself how to revolutionize space travel. . [Then] it comes with reusable rockets, everything. “
“Then, [he] he does stupid things on the internet, he changes a few things, he becomes the biggest billionaire, billionaire or whatever. The richest guy in the world, which, by the way, he couldn’t keep for long. I’m sure it will turn it around [laughs]. “
“At this point Elon, you have to ask yourself… all those incredible achievements and believe me, they are great, but who have you beaten? Who have you ever hit? The answer is nobody. “
Triple H then launched a WrestleMania match on Mars. It would definitely be a bigger movie event than last year’s Boneyard party! Edge Possibly Left WWE After WrestleMania Was Revealed by a renowned former employee.
“So if you want to disrespect our business, I’ll do it anytime, anywhere, anywhere [fight you]. Elon Musk, if you have the guts, if you have what it takes to do this … then you and I will talk about what I really want to talk about, which is taking one of your rockets, launching it from Florida, going into space, heading for Mars with a team from the Performance Center, where we then put on the biggest show the Universe has ever seen: WrestleMania Mars. ” Wrestling inc transcribed the Game’s comments.
Stephanie McMahon reacts to WWE Tanking rankings
During a recent interview with SportsProMedia, WWE Brand Director Stephanie McMahon recently spoke about the current state of WWE’s product and the direction the company is heading. Here, McMahon looks at how WWE is growing among women and how nearly forty percent of WWE’s audience for its programming is female. McMahon spoke about why his audience among women is so high and what WWE has to do to maintain that audience for years to come. She told the outlet the following quote. This WWE Hall of Famer recently stated that Stephanie McMahon “changed WWE forever.”
“Women love action, but I think they love stories too. They love the characters, they love the drama. Women need a reason to watch, more than men I think, so the more you can get your female audience involved in the character and the story, then they care. They care who is going to win, they care who is going to lose, “said McMahon.
McMahon then went on to say, “It’s really the storytelling that captures people, and I think that’s one of the reasons our female audience is so high.”
In other news about Stephanie McMahon, WWE’s brand director spoke about the future of live events in another media interview when she recently spoke to TVInsider, quoting: “Our fans are our secret sauce. When we went to the ThunderDome, we brought our fans back [virtually] as well as lights, lasers, pyrotechnics. There is an intersection of technology and live assistance.
McMahon concluded: “It happened faster than I think anyone anticipated, but we are absolutely looking to merge those worlds in the best possible way. I know our audience will be very vocal in telling us what they like and what they don’t like, which is certainly appreciated. ” Stephanie McMahon revealed that the ThunderDome will “merge” with real fans last month.
