Now this one is bullshit:
http://www.twnpnews.com/2014/08/back...-austin-react/

Not many people know who that guy is but imagine the Attitude Era without him.

So that's what Austin meant. I read that tweet a couple days ago and I thought nothing of it.

Wow what the hell is WWE doing?!!! This cost cutting thing because of the underperformance of the network really is crap and it's why I disdain them going public in the first place. Khali remains. WWE films remain. All sorts of dead weight remains and they take out their anger on back office staff and good performers (stale character is creatives fault).

They sound like a real shit company to work for honestly. I understand making a cut here and there and announcing a mass layoff by last resort but come on...it hasn't come to that and we all know it. This isn't TNA.

I've always been under the impression that the WWE has never been a very nice place to work, as a wrestler or office staff.

If Charles Robinson goes I will truely die on the inside.

Well, ADR did seem to be a bit of an ass, and maybe take his job far too seriously. Remember the match he had with Sin Botcha, the one where Sin broke his singer or something and the match was ended. ADR kept going at him and was being rather rough with officials.

I'm afraid wrestling might die this year.

I never really noticed a huge change in everything since the Network started up, the releases just felt like business moves... but now... wow, shit is just hitting the fan so hard. It's insane. WWE Network may have been the worst move ever.

If the WWE can survive 1994-1996 they can survive anything. They just have to get over themselves and realize they're just a lousy wrestling promotion, nothing more and nothing less.

More on the Del Rio situation:

"Del Rio slapped an employee in reaction to a racist comment made towards him. The report states that at catering, somebody asked a person to clean off his plate. The person joked something along the lines of how that's Del Rio's job. Del Rio found out about the comments and confronted the person. The person did not offer an apology and smiled at Del Rio, which reportedly led to the slap from Del Rio."

If this is true, I can't blame Del Rio for his actions. This nameless employee has to be somebody important in order for him to get fired though. I doubt he would've lost his job if he slapped some random guy who works backstage.

Come on, Jericho. Get Del Rio on your podcast.

All these shit stories from the last six months (releasing the timekeeper, the situation with the road crew, Del Rio) it makes me want to see the company suffer and go under.

I'm losing my interest in WWE day after day after with all of this stuff! Del Rio certainly could have handled it better, but he does come off as a bit of a hot head and certainly had the position to react in some form or way. He was always a stale talent, but the person who made the comment should get some sort of punishment for being a dick to someone who obviously doesn't take jokes the best.

Has anyone watched Tommy Dreamer's promotion, House of Hardcore? I was listening to Stone Cold's interview with him and they talked a lot about it, I looked online at his DVDs and there are some GREAT wrestlers in his promotion! Worth checking out?
