    The only times Bow Wow is even brought up at this point is when people talk about Tokyo Drift, Like Mike, or when he got destroyed by Kobe in basketball

    What a terrible policy by WWE. Sami Zayne has done so much to help people and help save lives via his work promoting his charities and they want to stop stuff like that? It's disgusting.

    i've met the New Day numerous times as a stable(and before the group too). nice guys they are

  8. logan kerr

    logan kerr9 days ago

    even when they were "Heel". they didn't sign, but they at least acknowledged the fans being their instead of ignoring and walking in the building. got to talk to Woods a few times bout the UUDD channel, etc.

    Rap & wrestling Connection, bad bunny with Damian priest, cardi B with Bianca belair, migos with the street profits and bow wow with who the fuck ever could be used to bring more eyes to the product and put wrestlers over with a wider audience

  16. Rob Powell

    Migos would obviously be with Ric Flair....

    Kofi gets jumped before getting in the chamber, not by Edge but by Ali, thus full circling the whole lost WM moment he blames Kofi for.

  19. DarkSun

    DarkSun9 days ago

    How is the "Miz got the briefcase back" so confusing for you 2? Was it stupid? Definitely. However it remains a fact that JoMo cashed in the contract, but he is not the holder of said contract --> cash-in invalid. It really doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out, and for people who constantly preach that WWE shouldn't act like we need a reminder of everything every time you often forget/ignore things that were said in graded/wtf moments/etc. all the time.

  20. Brandonie

    "So Drew can look stronger going into Wrestlemania" Bruh. How much stronger does he need to look? He's already pushing 85 Hogan territory

    Miz will cash out at money in the bank event. Someone will win money in the bank cash in. B champion and out comes Miz. To cash in and win. Historical. Nothing like this has ever happened.

  23. gtag

    gtag9 days ago

    i just assumed that retribution would attack Kofi and Ali would take his spot in the chamber, as it would come full circle to when Kofi took his spot 2 years ago

  25. Son Of Man

    Mark my words: Retribution will attack Kofi before the chamber match causing Mustafa Ali to take his spot, shades of Kofi-mania replacing Ali that one year.

    Friday they have an Emergency #1 Contender Cross Brand Battle Royal to find a new opponent, Rhea Rippley wins it, wins the title and she vs Charlotte at Mania, or a triple threat with Asuka.

    WWE talent need to stand up to Vince. Without the Talent there is no WWE.

  42. OneBigBugga

    OneBigBugga9 days ago

    @Darklocks Jaw Ji No it isn't, no they don't. This is more of what they did on Twitch when they forced WWE superstars to turn over what they were making off their own hard work. Don't give me that bull WWE needs to take control and KayFabe, KayFabe has been dead longer then Twitter has been alive. Vince fucking killed that noise himself before anyone else. This is one thing plane and simple. This is Vince wanting control. Vince is a Massive control freak, this is a guy who dislikes people who sneeze in front of him because he hates that a sneeze isn't controlled. Even taker would leave the room if he had to sneeze. This is a man who sleeps 2 hours a day because he needs to control how much he sleeps as he sees sleep as a wasted. This is a man who has TOTALLY rewritten entire shows in a couple of hours because he didn't like what it was and is damned near solely the reason WWE is such a poor show now compared to what it was. Meanwhile places like AEW, TNA flourish and NJPW is gaining more and more ground in America.

  43. Darklocks Jaw Ji

    Darklocks Jaw Ji9 days ago

    The thing is that the social media account is an extension of their onscreen persona. And WWE deserve creative control over that. Most of the wrestlers are terrible at keeping kayfabe alive on their social media accounts. Something which companies 20 years ago would fire a wrestler for. If the twitter account is under the wrestlers non-WWE name, then by all means they should be allowed to say what they want.

  44. Justin

    Manny Jhutty9 days ago

    It's annoying when someone says "they're not down with the kids" when literally anything related to black culture comes into conversation. You could talk to someone about a Nas album that released in 1994 and they'd say that they wouldn't know as they aren't "Down with the kids".

  60. Manny Jhutty

    Wwe creative meeting: Okay so hear me out let’s swerve them all and reveal that Lacey isn’t pregnant but Ric Flair is

  63. Darklocks Jaw Ji

    Darklocks Jaw Ji9 days ago

    Ronda Rousey gets a lot of heat, but her choice to take a 'impregnation vacation' deserves more respect Becky and Lacey got suddenly pregnant in the middle of story lines and caused the rest of the division to bend over backwards to accommodate it Huge respect to Ronda for giving several months notice and doing all she can to work with the company

  64. James Duggan

    James Duggan9 days ago

    The whole staff should go on strike. The on screen staff for their right to actually be treated as independent contractors and the backstage staff for a pay rise etc. The board can't run the company by themselves and they've been taking the piss out of the staff for months now. Easier said than done at the best of times but now?. Which, if I'm being cynical, is why WWE is doing this now; because they know staff are more vulnerable than ever.

  65. Karl Doyle

    Karl Doyle9 days ago

    Wait..... Bow Wow?!?! ..... Lil Bow Wow from like 2001?!?! Why??! I'm not even shocked that they didn't know who he was. I just feel like wrestling fans ain't too keen on hip hop, especially when it was like 20 dam years ago! Bloody Bow Wow!

  69. Rich Born

    Rich Born9 days ago

    With the way WWE keeps doubling down on owning the Superstars and controlling their social media, it's a surprise that they still somehow signed another 24 talents. Who wants to keep coming to a company that won't push them on TV and tells them what they can say?

  73. John Brashear

    John Brashear9 days ago

    WWE's employment practices probably should be investigated since this is obviously not right, but it's probably cheaper for them to pay for an investigation to go away (maybe they already have) then to do right by their employees. Gotta keep the shareholders happy after all since businesses just exist to make money and have no other function in a healthy society whatsoever. :)

  76. Cold Falco

    Cold Falco9 days ago

    At least Lacey is truly prego so we won't have to go through a "Ric Flair is the Woo Father" cringe of a story... WWE doubling down on the "No social media for superstars" thing. Yeah...

    Bow Wow couldn't be any less relevant in the US these days. His rap career was pretty much just his teens and early twenties and he wasn't that good. His dad was amazing though.

  86. David Luna

    They all need to walk out or threaten to not appear on live tv, if wwe won’t classify them as employees or continue to restrict their personal lives. Their business practices are trash

  87. Allyssa Golden

    Allyssa Golden9 days ago

    Yes. It will only get worse. Them not taking a stand with Twitch, while understandable, was the wrong move, because now WWE will restrict them even further. The Twitch thing was a test by WWE, to see how far they could push the limits of their power unchecked. Because the Twitch controversy stayed p much within the community and go no mainstream media attention, WWE knows they can do this shit effectively in the shadows. A shame.

  88. Eddie Edwards

    @Prodigy well yea he’s exaggerating but he’s still very well known lol

  97. Prodigy

    Why? The Miz is a brilliant heel and has proven to be a great heel champion and he could have a really good fued with Edge

  105. Byron

    Byron9 days ago

    I honestly believe that after Edge's promo on The Miz a few weeks ago that Edge is winning a title at Mania and Miz is going to cash in to 'ruin' his moment.

  106. Rich Born

    Rich Born9 days ago

    That'd kill the Miz forever. That'd be serious go away heat. Maybe Miz from like late 2016, but his character has been so ineffectual and lame the past two years nobody would buy it

    Okay, hear me out... This is going to sound insane, but I've just woken up: Kofi heel turn. Not just a heel turn, but he joins Retribution because he wants his WWE championship back. And with The New Day not being what it was to help him get to the top this time, he turns on Xavier which leads to him and E at Wrestlemania.
