    Mania bump is over and ratings are down. Smackdown posted their lowest rating since October.

    Raw this week was the first show I watched live in awhile I think. I'll record them and fast forward through them real quick but meh. There's not much going on either show worth caring about.

    Cept Seth Rollins.

    What's funny is Kane would probably be one of the better looking politicians.

    Sami Zayn wasn’t told why he wasn’t going to the GRR, and WWE had a few directives including not mentioning Zayn’s disappearance as it would have been a bad look for them having not allowed one of their talents to go to the show because of ethnicity.

    Kane has actually officially won now.

    He won by 17 votes last night, but there were 43 left to count for some reason. They counted them and he still won.

    So whats the deal? WWE didn't want him to go because he is Syrian? I thought it was Sami who didn't want to go and was protesting.

    And I heard Mojo is half Syrian half Palestinian and he was there. And then you have the Davari's who I think are real Iranians (not Keyfabe). And SA is bigger enemies with Iran than Syria.

    Unless Sami is pro-Assad I don't see why Saudi would have an issue with him being there. I bet they don't even know he has Syrian background. The guy is actually Canadian from Montreal. I don't know 100% if he immigrated here but I think he was actually born in Montreal to Syrian immigrants so he isn't even technically Syrian.

    Sami does charity work for Syria, so that's a big tip-off.

    I think Mojo is of Iraqi decent, which can mean a bunch of different things.

    - WWE is listed as a minority owner of the XFL in new SEC filings.

    - Nia Jax revealed that the reason for her time off last year was due to an injury suffered when an overhead luggage fell on top of her head on a plane. This was around the time rumours were out that The Rock told her to leave.

    - Paige was chosen as Smackdown GM to keep promoting the movie developed by The Rock about Paige's journey.

    - Corey Graves reportedly has heat for his comments on Instagram after the Saudi Arabia tour. While his comments are true and probably agreed upon by others, the feeling is that he should have kept them private. The report also says that people backstage say Graves is more replaceable than he thinks he is.

    He was 100% right but it was obviously something that people would be upset about.

    He's absolutely not replaceable though.

    Good for Corey. A company doesn’t own you, speak your mind if you feel like it.

    except people get fired for social media comments all the time. its usually written into their contract, and you can bet its ironclad in a big company like WWE.

    he wasnt wrong, but the company DOES own him in this case

    Agreed. He can post whatever he wants, but he may also be searching for a new jobby job soon.
