If you’ve ever dreamed of watching The Undertaker vs. “The Demon” Finn Balor in a dream match, be it on WWE NXT or any other sector of WWE programming before “The Deadman” retired, sadly he will have to stay only a fantasy reserve. Finn Balor was recently interviewed on What’s The Story? podcast and during the show, the host asked Balor about a possible showdown between the WWE icon. Balor said that the Undertaker dream fight was nothing more than an internet chat. Credit to Fightful for the following quote. This big WWE name recently reacted to Undertaker for “disrespecting” the WWE roster.
In other news about The Undertaker, former WCW Tag Team Champion Bryan Clark was recently asked about his fight with Brian Adams against The Undertaker and Kane at the 2001 Unforgiven pay-per-view event. Clark had the following comments and the did in Pro Wrestling Defined. Credit to SportsKeeda for the following transcript.
The Undertaker was criticized for “burying” John Cena. We went there and I had a serious neck injury and again one of those times where I got ahead. They brought us in, we made an angle with Taker and Kane and we hit Taker through a table and Kane through a table to build all of this. The thing was, Kane had a very bad staph infection on his arm, Taker’s shoulder was hurt or something, I had a neck, and I even think Brian had a back injury or something. Either way, they just wanted to rush this together and I remember they put Steven Richards with us as manager. Nothing against him, a super nice guy, a great guy, but it didn’t make any sense.
“I remember Brian telling me ‘This is not a good thing’ and I was like ‘I tried to tell you that we should have gone to Japan.’ It just didn’t work. Due to the purchase, we had been out for a year and needed some time, as for the ring to work again. I even suggested and said, “Let’s go on tour for a week and work with some guys” and they said “we’ll just make you do TV games” and it all fell apart. I mean it wasn’t horrible, but … some parts were horrible. Again, it’s about a lack of planning and being able to foresee that this could actually do something. Instead, let’s rush things and that’s what happens when you rush things. “
Mickie James Angers WWE with “offensive” photo?
Mickie James felt terrible after being part of the list of Superstars who were recently fired by WWE. Mickie also just leaked dark information about the company and what they were “too scared to do.” It’s quite shocking to see WWE in a different light when superstar after superstar starts talking about the injustices that lie ahead. Triple H leaks WWE firing after “burying” a diva.
Mickie James is currently furious at WWE. Any of us would also be angry if we were fired from our jobs for no good reason. Mickie recently took to Twitter to vent his frustration with how the firing was handled while tweeting a photo of his severance package.
The severance package Mickie received was a box and garbage bag filled with what I believe was her ring and locker room belongings. Mickie stated: “Dear @VinceMcMahon, I’m not sure if you know, I received my @WWE care package today. Thank you. #AlwaysBelsedandGrateful #WomensWrestlingMatters”
James later stated that he was selling his shirts on Pro Wrestling Tees that WWE would not post as they say “MILF” on them, as well as James in seductive poses. WWE, which is now aimed at children, did not want to remove the jerseys.
Oh I forgot … I still have a @PWTees shop for merchandise that they were too scared to do. I think there will be a #earthday offer today. You’re welcome. #MilfMoney #MondayNightMilf 🥛 & 🍪 anyone? pic.twitter.com/aQeMU4g5sB

Vince McMahon praised WWE management during today’s earnings call: “Like any other form of entertainment or sport, we came out of COVID. At first, we were in survival mode, but we found a new life. Sure, we saw this as an opportunity to rethink the way we do business and open what I call a WWE treasure chest. The only way to do that is by having the best management team in WWE history.
We have that team. A team that is innovative, a team that drives revenue, and has reorganized our company in a more efficient way to take advantage of new revenue streams, new online platforms, new consumer products, new content creation, and new opportunities to expand our portfolio. of media rights worldwide. I’m always excited about our business and I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited than I am right now. “

Stephanie said: “@MickieJames, I am ashamed that you or anyone else is treated this way. I apologize personally and on behalf of @WWE. The person in charge is no longer in our company ”.
WWE also fired Samoa Joe last week. Sean Waltman said on his Pro Wrestling 4 Life podcast: “Yes, [Samoa Joe] sure, ”Waltman said. “People are discouraged. I also. The thing is, this is Samoa Joe man. He’s a leading player anywhere as far as I’m concerned, and it opens up a lot of possibilities. I can’t wait to see where it ends. “
“I could see ROH. It has a history with ROH and even Impact. I guess it depends on what they offer. Here’s the thing, they released a dozen people or whatever at once. Some people might think, “Well, you put excess talent on the market,” but there is no excess talent like Samoa Joe on the market, no matter how many people are released. “
WWE also fired Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, Bo Dallas, Mojo Rawley, and many others last week.
