WWE begin concussion storyline:
In what appears to be inspired by the recent real-life concussion of Dolph Ziggler, WWE have began a similar storyline with Triple H. On last night’s RAW he was unable to complete his match with Curtis Axel, and WWE.com are now reporting that the Game has no memory of coming out to the ring or wrestling. Ziggler himself suffered memory loss.
This was a way to sell Brock Lesnar‘s victory over Triple H at Extreme Rules and put over Axel without Hunter doing it clean.
Stars put over revamped McGillicutty:
Various stars took to Twitter last night to praise Curtis Axel, the revamped Michael McGillicutty…
Chris Jericho: “Proud & excited for the debut of #CurtisAxel! He’s been waitin for this his whole life. Somewhere Mr Perfect is smiling his mischievous grin”
Curt Hawkins: “Couldn’t be happier for the former @WWEMcGillicutty …& don’t worry about me guys. Nobody has ever refered to me as “Curtis”. I’m ok. #RAW”
Howard Finkel: “Curtis Axel has become a WWE household name over the last 15 min.. Opportunity knocks, and I think that he’ll open the door and embrace it”
Ezekiel Jackson: “Curtis axel… Kid deserves it… Congrats bud”
Tyson Kidd: “Curt Axel has some amazing music. Natural from day 1, he doesn’t know his own potential. He can go in the ring #Raw”
Dolph Ziggler: “genuinely proud of @WWEMcGillicutty go get em, kid! (curt axel)”
Mick Foley: “I think @RealCurtisAxel has a real shot at getting over. Otherwise, the master (@HeymanHustle) wouldn’t be guiding him”
The Bella Twins: “Everything Paul touches turns to gold…. We see money in Curt Axel ???? #RAW”
Lance Storm: “Anyone who thinks Curt Axel as new @HeymanHustle guy is a miss, doesn’t understand building to the future. #RAW”
Paul Heyman: “I always wanted to manage @RealCurtisAxel’s father. A better-than-Perfect debut tonight! @WWE #RAW”
Titus drops F-Bomb live on RAW:
Titus O’Neil could be heard dropping the “F-Bomb” on last night’s RAW, during his match with Sheamus, although the slight tape delay allowed it to be censored. Mick Foley joked about it on Twitter…
“I’m guessing that @VinceMcMahon’s post-match chat with @TitusONeilWWE will be a memorable one.”
The Cowboy out for 6-8 weeks:
TNA’s “Cowboy” James Storm will be out of action for 6 to 8 weeks following his recent abdominal injury. He noted on Twitter…
“Just so everyone knows. Doc said I have a slight tear in my right abdominal & a adductor strain “groin pull” 6-8 weeks. Busting ass 2 b back”
Storm suffered the injury when he refereed Bad Influence vs Aries & Roode a couple of weeks ago.
