As I didn't think it merited a thread of its own:

Enzo Amore has had his charges of sexual assault dropped. His statement also claims he only found out about what he was accused of when it appeared on the Internet. Don't think he'll be rehired though.

I think if he knows he's not untouchable he might reign in it on the road. If they did rehire him I'd like to see him attempt to become the best manager in wrestling history. There's no one like him, but as a wrestler he's very forgettable. No one has missed him for that.


In other news. It begins...

USA are going to pay 3x what Raw is worth to keep it and let SD leave to cover costs... so now WWE can present to other bidding channels that SD has their A Roster and can be extended to 3 hours if the networks would like that lol. If you look Stock has leaped from the steady 40 dollars it's been at to 50 dollars already. The bidding Channels have been worked nicely.

I did read that if the USA Network deal goes ahead, it would make Raw more profitable than PPV's for the first time ever. I'm assuming it would also mean that Raw would be prioritised over PPV (and maybe the Network?) so all the big stuff happens on TV instead.

Once the deal is signed that's that though. If USA struggles to sell the advertising to the price they want they might have words about WWE giving them something, but in essence they are paying a price based on current ratings draws anyway and the competition from internet based companies has driven the bidding prices way up. WWE will want to give USA some good stuff still i'd assume, but that could mean more cross brand celebrity stuff or maybe a return to big soap opera storylines that run for months.

I'm intrigued about the two shows being on separate networks, USA has the family, action and entertainment base, but if SD goes to a more sports driven network you could get a totally different style of show. Maybe do what New Japan does but with a bigger budget. If WWE ever wants to dominate the entire market again it would be wise having two different products on network television.

Fox has apparently bought SD. A one billion dollar deal for 5 years, starting from October 2019.

Utterly crazy to think their ratings are down, but the money they're pulling in is obscene.

The one in the wig is probably a better wrestler.
