- WWE Talent Warned Not To Refer To YouTube Parody
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you’ve probably watched this on repeat. As it turns out, the powers that be in the WWE have apparently watched it too, and they are allegedly not happy. That is, according to Bryan Alvarez, who noted on his show that the talent had been told not to tweet about it. This led to a bit of a Twitter beef between he and filmmaker Max Landis who advised him, in no uncertain terms, that any ill feeling related specifically to language used, due to the so-called PG era. Alvarez responded by inviting Landis on to his show, to which he advised that if he was “still relevant” in a week’s time, he’d be glad to. For what it’s worth, Trips tweeted his approval for the video.
- Jericho Backs Reigns For Wrestlemania
Chris Jericho is a busy guy right now; he’s wrapping up a successful European tour with Fozzy and he has a new DVD/BR out, The Road To Jericho. In an interview with IGN, he leaped to the defence of Roman Reigns, proclaiming that everyone had “turned on him” after the Royal Rumble when, just previous to that, the fans were all over him. Jericho also stated that “it takes two” to have a great match, and Reigns’ FastLane bout with Daniel Bryan proved that he’s got the goods to go the whole way. In a separate interview, Jericho revealed that if he never wrestles another match again, he won’t mind, which is bad news for wrasslin’ fans and good news for fans of ABBA covers.
- Reigns Comments On Smarks, WM 31 & Divas
In an interview with Digital Spy, Roman Reigns revealed he reckons his chances of beating Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania are pretty good, thanks in large part to the fact he’s “younger” and “hungrier” than the current reigning, defending champ. He also admitted that the so-called smarks of the WWE Universe probably wanted Daniel Bryan to win the Royal Rumble over him this year, but that it simply wasn’t “his match” as Reigns is much bigger physically and it’s therefore doubtful Bryan would be able to chuck him over the ropes. As for being booed out of it, Reigns diplomatically said: “I think it just goes to show how special the WWE Universe is and how opinionated and how strong they are”. Regarding his old buddy Seth Rollins, Reigns reckons he’s constantly lying in wait for the best possible time to strike – it might be at Wrestlemania, it might not – but he hinted strongly that there’s definitely more to come from the so-called architect of The Shield. The #GiveDivasAChance movement has been gaining traction, and Reigns emphatically gave his support, simply stating that if it weren’t for women, he wouldn’t be here.
