Paige explica porque não usa calçado tradicional do wrestling

Como muitos já perceberam, Paige não luta com o tradicional calçado do wrestling e usa calçado da marca britânica Dr. Martens.

Em entrevista ao WWE Magazine, Paige revelou o motivo para tal: "I'm used to it. You have to break them in so I had to wear them on the streets. They're very good, very British. I'm sticking to my guns. I'm really happy they're back in fashion again because I love them and I own a pair, so I might as well put these babies on."

Batista diz que os The Shield ainda não estavam prontos e diz que Dean Ambrose é o lutador mais talentoso do grupo

Batista deu uma entrevista ao Huffington Post UK. Eis os highlights:

The make-up you wore [for Drax] was so intricate - how long did you spend in the chair and how did you pass the time?!

Oh - with all kinds of stuff. I got really close to my make-up team! It was a team of five people - and it took them about four hours to put it all on every day. We had a routine and we'd just talk for hours, listening to music and if you can imagine hanging out with your friends for that amount of time, it just kind of flies by. It wasn't a big deal, it was just hanging out in the morning and doing our usual routine. It wasn't so much the hours of sitting in the chair but rather the consecutive days when it became a little hard. I don't remember ever being unhappy about it though.

Moving to wrestling, what's the best rib [practical joke] that's been played on you?

I'm not the biggest ribber, so this is not so much of a rib but as you know, I made my WWE debut alongside Devon. I was a rookie and - I learned this the hard way - sometimes you should just keep your mouth shut. I made a bet with him when we were somewhere in New Mexico, because Devon was notoriously late, I told him that if he beat me to the show that I'd run around the building naked. Even though I hadn't really meant it, he picked up on it and ran with it. So he ended up winning the bet, of course, and I was going to keep to my word and run around the building naked. One of the WWE producers vetoed the idea but I was the rookie and obligated to suck it up. So I was at his mercy and the trade for the naked run was that I had to do 25 individual push-ups whenever and wherever he told me to. After each push up I had to scream out "I'm Devon's b***h". I did them - I think he let me out of about five of them because he eventually just felt so bad. But I did them in random places - it was on planes, it was in restaurants.....

It's not so long since you visited WWE's developmental territory, NXT - who should we be looking out for?

Well I didn't get to see all the talent at NXT but they've certainly got some down there. Some big boys down there too! The person I'd really like to see come up and I hope she changes things around for the women's division which has gotten so fluff, is Ashley Fleihr or Miss Charlotte as she's known there. I really hope that she does well. I watched her in a match with Nattie Neidhart recently and it was a really good match. I think that was mostly down to Nattie because Ashley is still learning, she's still super green but I'm hopeful that she's got a big part of her dad (Ric Flair) in her and that she can change things around because she's very athletic. That division used to have girls who could go and now it's rubbish. Think of Lita, you know, that's when the women's division was respectable.

Sting has just appeared on a WWE panel at a comic convention. Will we see him wrestling in the WWE soon?

I don't know - you know, they've been talking about that for years. I've never even met him. But I hope so. I think he's got a place there. But they need to do it soon because the audience is changing so much that if they wait any longer, the audience is going to be a bunch of kids and when he comes out they're going to chant CM Punk!

What are your thoughts on Jeff Jarrett's new GFW promotion - is it good for business?

Any competition is good for business, the problem is they're just not going to be any competition. They'll never beat the production of the WWE. It's a huge production, they're just so good at what they do and they're on top of the world for a reason. It's a first class production and I don't see anybody being a threat. WCW was the closest thing and I think it's a shame they went under because I think competition is a good thing but that promotion or any other promotion is just not competition.

What did you think of the Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak being broken?

It sucked! Honestly, I thought it sucked. I haven't really talked much about it but I think it was a bad decision, a horrible decision. I don't have any say in the matter but to me, watching as a fan, it made me sick. Brock Lesnar beating him didn't seem to work and it really wasn't good that Brock left the day after. I just don't see how that made sense at all. I don't think anyone wanted to see the streak broken and it just didn't make sense to me.

When you left WWE, the Shield broke up - what did you think about that and their individual efforts?

It's similar to my take on the Undertaker. I guess there comes a point where you have to send them their separate ways but - and it's just my opinion - I don't think they were ready. I don't think they're ready to fly solo. I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

Rob Van Dam fala da longevidade da WWE

Rob Van Dam deu uma entrevista ao News.com.au e falou sobre a longevidade da WWE:

"I’ve been doing this so long that I am privy to a lot of changes. When I started out there were many different companies … you could leave and go to a different territory and there were so many different styles. What we have now is WWE has survived the test of time and all the other companies have fallen off the face of the earth … now the WWE is a hybrid of all the different kinds of wrestling. I kid you not, it really is the cream of the crop, the best in the business. If you’re not in the WWE and bouncing around in the Indy shows you’re not with the best."

Curtis Axel fala sobre treinar com The Rock e Brock Lesnar

O WWE.com entrevistou Curtis Axel e onde este falou sobre os treinos que teve com The Rock quando ele regressou à WWE em 2011:

"I think that I gained some trust within the WWE organization, and they picked me because they had faith in me being safe, not injuring him and really making him step up his game to get his wind ready, and his body back in shape for all the strenuous activity he was about to endure at WrestleMania. So I think they just had trust in me, and I think that’s what it boiled down to. Plus, we both come from a pedigree. Me and Rock have always had that bond, just because of the generational thing. So I think that had something to do with it. He trusted me, and WWE trusted me, so that’s how all that came about."

Axel falou sobre a mensagem que recebeu de The Rock antes de se ter estreado como um Paul Heyman Guy: "Yeah, when I became [a Paul Heyman Guy], he heard it through the pipeline that I was going to re-debut and he sent me an awesome text saying good luck. It was a really motivational text, helped me out and got me focused, because I was a nervous wreck that day. It really helped me out a lot hearing that from him. And from time to time, like, I saw him at WrestleMania 30, we had a good talk, and he’s a motivating guy, and just to hear him say, “Hey, man, you’re doing good,” really means a lot to me."

Axel falou também sobre os treinos com Brock Lesnar em 2012: "Nonstop. I mean, we would wrestle a half-hour without a break, just going back and forth and basically doing a whole match. There was a moment, and he might get mad at me for saying this, but there was a moment where we stopped for a second and he said to me, “I’m going to beat your ass all the way to the corner, and then I’m going to take a step back. And when I come back to you, I want you to beat my ass all the way back to the other corner. And if it’s not up to my standards, if it’s not sufficient enough and I don’t think you’re aggressive, you know what’s going to happen to you.”

And in my head I’m thinking, “What does this mean?!?” so, it happened. I beat his ass all the way to the corner as aggressive as I could, I got up waiting for him to do something and he said, “That’s good.” And we moved on."

Randy Orton com heat na WWE devido aos combates contra Roman Reigns

Foi ontem reportado que os combates do fim-de-semana entre Randy Orton e Roman Reigns tinham desiludido. Segundo fontes, a culpa da fraca qualidade dos combates está a ser colocada em Randy Orton.

Muitos dos oficiais da WWE e lutadores afirmam que Randy Orton apresentou um estilo “que mata o público” nos combates que teve contra Reigns.

Muitos dos lutadores da WWE que estão a ver os seus pagamentos cada vez mais serem reduzidos e com bónus da WrestleMania e ser menor do que o previsto, estão aborrecidos por Orton estar a tentar rebaixar Roman Reigns e não o deixar subir ao topo da WWE como devia. Os talentos da WWE acreditam que um novo babyface é preciso pois John Cena não poderá carregar a WWE sozinho e o futuro de Daniel Bryan é incerto. Uma estrela da WWE disse: “Se Roman é a pessoa certa, então Roman será essa pessoa certa. Contudo ele precisa ser pushado como nunca e não será a prende-lo em rest holds na esperança de ninguém se lesionar. Estamos no wrestling onde as quedas e as nódoas negras surgem”.

Estará a WWE interessada em comprar a videoteca da TNA?

Na edição mais recente da Wrestling Observer Radio especulou-se que a TNA poderá querer comprar a videoteca da TNA se esta não conseguir nenhum acordo de TV. O preço que faria seria 500 dólares por hora. A TNA tem pouco mais de mil horas de Impact Wrestling.

Foi mencionado que o facto de Hulk Hogan não estar mais ligado à TNA está a enfraquecer a TNA na procura de uma nova estacão de TV.

O que os oficiais da TNA têm dito aos talentos sobre os recentes rumores & Quanto dinheiro tem vindo a perder a TNA

A TNA enviou emails aos seus talentos ao indicar que os rumores de que a Spike TV não irá renovar contrato são falsos. A TNA está a indicar que a notícia é tão falsa como aquela que dava conta que a promotora estava à venda o ano passado. Aparentemente a promotora espera ter boas noticias e irá manter a par os talentos.

Segundo a F4W, o número exacto de prejuízo que a TNA tem vindo a ter nos último anos é desconhecido mas nos último três anos, a promotora perdeu cerca de 45 milhões de dólares. A TNA minimizou algumas das suas perdas mas ainda assim tem vindo a perder dinheiro.

"On the beach here in Florida and I was taking a picture of the beach and all of a sudden I hear some guy yell "HEY NO FUCKING PICTURES" and I look and see Brock Lesnar. I didn't even know he was there and I wasn't even taking a picture of him! Pretty jerkish thing to say. Oh well still pretty cool to see him. After he waled by I took a picture, I have it right here but I'm not sure how to upload it. If anyone can tell me how to I will upload it immediately"


De quem foi a ideia da nova stable na WWE
