    What's the context for this? They just happened to kiss with photographers around? It looks like they're in the guerrilla position.

    Becky and Beth Phoenix were going at it on twitter. Edge got involved and then somehow Becky confirmed she was with Seth. Seth then posted that pic with the caption "I guess I can post this now?"

    But yeah I mean they're clearly surrounded by photographers so I guess it was meant to come out at some point.

    So it's all Becky's fault, lol.

    It's a shame that these talents go on Twitter and seem to be 100x more entertaining than what we see of them on t.v. Even the people who are actually entertaining on t.v., once the reigns loosen, they're even better. I'm even entertained by Baron Corbin on social media, on t.v. he's fucking pitiful.

    Triple H is reportedly “the most frustrated person” in WWE

    The stories we’ve heard about people being frustrated with Vince McMahon have been confirmed by many people in the company and it’s no secret that wrestlers are looking at their options when their contracts expire.

    In the last week, Triple H seemed to acknowledge to the fans that he knows change is needed but there’s not much he can do until Vince McMahon decides to step aside. Triple H recently liked and then unliked these two fan tweets:

    Richard Gutierrez
    @richgutierrez18
    @VinceMcMahon maybe the problem with the Raw and SmackDown ratings isn't due to wrestlers injured, it's that you put confusing and pointless storylines. Although it wouldn't hurt if you gave your wrestlers insurance. Just a thought @StephMcMahon @TripleH @WWE


    Some of the usual stories (and some new ones) were confirmed on Wade Keller’s Pro Wrestling Post-Show when a close friend of three WWE writers called into his show after Monday Night Raw. It’s very clear that the buck stops with Vince McMahon and it doesn’t look like real change is coming anytime soon.

    Here are things said on the podcast by the close friend of three current WWE writers:

    – WWE’s problems are not the fault of the writers. “No one should rip on WWE creative. They have some of the most brilliant, unbelievable cool ideas that I’ve ever heard…” He was told, “We’re writing for an audience of one and never forget that [and if not] you’re out of here.”

    – “The most frustrated person in the back every single night is Triple H. He’ll always take, especially the NXT guys, under his wing. It looks like he’s consoling them. It looks so much like he was the most frustrated person in the building every single night.”

    – The Wild Card Rule was not in the script on the morning of the show.

    – The Superstar Shake-Up changed week to week and it didn’t pan out how it was originally laid out months prior. Everything changed because Vince just decided to change it.

    – He talked about the turnover with so many backstage people quitting or being fired.

    – SmackDown and Raw writing teams are the same for both shows. They used to be separate but that changed recently after the Shake-Up.

    – The caller emphasized that the problems in WWE are not creative’s fault and Vince McMahon is the one person who deserves the blame.

    – Vince wants suggestions from everyone but it never gets on TV. 99 out of 100 times you can come up with an idea for Vince and it won’t be used.

    – The entire creative team has pitched to have Raw and SmackDown look completely different with different production, a different way of shooting things, etc. and McMahon shoots it down.

    – Vince McMahon doesn’t keep track of what is going on with NXT. He “maybe” watches Takeover shows.

    – The writers say he just watches WWE and works out and is not aware of things going on in the real world.

    – The writers say there is no chance of Vince stepping down.

    – Dana Brooke has been the hardest worker for the last 3 years. She goes to the Performance Center, she shows up early and helps set up the ring and she gets in the ring so she can get better. Creative will pitch something for her and she gets nothing up until recently with MITB.

    – The caller offered to tell Wade Keller off the air of some cool storylines that were pitched and never used.

    – The writer he talked to said, “we’re all working for Dana Warrior and it’s really awkward.”

    – The WWE-Fox contract prohibits Fox from moving the show to FS1 even if the ratings drop.

    – One writer is very close to quitting because he is so “unbelievably unhappy” and many of the writers are paranoid and think they are close to being fired.

    – “It’s such a toxic atmosphere and it’s all because of one person.”

    – When Neville walked out, there was a crazy shouting match and he flipped out on Vince McMahon and that was the last time they saw him. The writers praised Neville for being so easy to work with.

    – Ideas never pan out as originally planned because writers will come up with stuff and then Vince loses interest after a week or two. He used Mojo Rawley as an example.

    – The money is good and it’s a dream job for many writers but it gets frustrating. The talent is very unhappy and people are trying to get out of their contracts.

    – The writers say Bruce Prichard is a pleasure to work with. “He’s a funny guy and a pleasure to work with but he’s not getting through to Vince either.”

    – Shane McMahon, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have tried to talk to Vince but it hasn’t worked.

    – The people on the writing staff listens to podcasts and they hear fans bashing them. “It breaks their heart,” he said.

    – Vince is in the announcer’s ear “to a sentence” and he gets on them for tiny mistakes.

    – On Sami Zayn: “That’s not Sami Zayn’s promos. That’s Vince McMahon talking through Sami Zayn.”

    – There are 37 total writers and they are now working on both shows.

    – NBCUniversal and FOX both want the top stars.

    – Andrade went into Vince’s office and asked for a legit push. Vince looked at him and said, “learn some English and get back to me.” Andrade spoke some English last week and he’s been taking English lessons.

    – The Firefly Fun House stuff is all Bray Wyatt’s idea. Bray is described is an “absolute genius” and he helps other wrestlers with their promos. “He’s one of the best guys in the locker room.”

    – The writers he talked to say they loved when there was a real brand split.

    – He mentioned The Revival/Usos storyline being done because Vince just thinks its funny.

    – Some of the writers think Road Dogg will eventually end up in AEW. (Note: Road Dogg is currently on hiatus and there’s no word on when he will be back or what he would be doing if he returns).
    Some interesting bits in here. Depressing.

    Yeah but it's all the same old.

    The best thing that can possibly happen is for AEW to make a fucking dent. A scrape. A scratch. Anything.

    Vince was still peddling goofy 80s shit well into the 90s. When the company was barely turning a profit he still didn't want to change. Then WCW started making themselves into real competition and suddenly Vince was open to new ideas.

    Competition. Vince needs it or this is just going to go on and on.

    I'd love to be a writer and deal with Vince McMahon. I'd honesty love it. Though I'd probably pitch ideas that Vince would love

    I took one marketing class in college. The most basic principle the Instructor told us is not to think that customers like what you like. The WWE is just Vince's personal playground, not an actually product designed to appeal to it's customer base. We just get lucky from time to time when something cool actually happens, like Kofi's 'Mania moment and the early part of Becky's run last year.

    Even if AEW gets sone big names, I imagine it will still probably take years for them to compete with WWE due to the money, advertising and how easily accessible it is plus the sheer mass of content every week. There's the network too which is dirt cheap plus their massive social media presence.

    All AEW has at the moment is being on TNT. It's something at least for them but how many people actually watch shows on there now? WCW was able to compete with them on TNT but they had the bmoney and WWE was not the massive corporate global machine it is today and WCW still lost. It would take a long, long time for them to even make a dent and Vince won't be sweating to make the changes as he has the monopoly.

    It would be far quicker for Vince to step down to improve things in WWE, but he's way too stubborn so that isn't happening til he's in a coffin or if his mental health drops dramatically and he's forced to step down due to his mental health.

    If AEW comes in thinking about competing with the WWE they're going to be paddling up shit's creek with a toothpick. We don't need to hear disgruntled anti-WWE promos. We don't need AEW to try and do everything WWE doesn't do while not doing anything they do that actually works. Bischoff somehow managed for awhile to balance that but eventually he along with those after him went down the path of "What is the WWE doing? We should do that!"

    Not confirmed but quite big rumours that WWE programming is moving from sky sports to bt sports for the next cycle.

    Is that good news or bad news? I've heard of Sky Sports but not BT sports. Is that a lesser network?

    Wow, they've been on Sky permanently since the early 90s, even longer.

    Not surprised though, the ratings have been abysmal, the last I heard.

    As long as you can watch on the BT Sport app, my son will still be able to watch Raw and Smackdown.

    And I can now dump most of my Sky Sports channels, just keeping the footie.

    Assuming WWE does go to BT, that is.

    BT Sports has circa 2m subscribers. Sky sports has many more so potentially its a worse deal but i think Sky were a bit pissed off during the last renewal as WWE sold it as a premium service then immediately launched the network which hurt sky slightly.

    I doubt it will make too much difference to viewing figures overall though. I think the current contract ends in December so end of the year looks to be the start point if the rumours are true

    After watching part of RAW this week, it's really bad when reading the restults is more exciting than watch the actual show.

    Bray Wyatt and JoJo just had a baby in real life...

    This is totally THE reason he is doing this Firefly Fun House gimmick.

    He's doing it for his child.

    Well I mean. He has a bunch of kids. But yeah this may be kind of an inspiration. Thinking about kids shows and things.

    How do you know? I've read plenty of comments on the board that sound just like the main page comments.

    The types of comments I had in mind are not generally things I've seen said here, thankfully.
