There are reports that WWE has signed former DX member Billy Gunn (Kip Sopp) as a NXT developmental trainer. Gunn has done some work with developmental talents at NXT earlier this year and it was reported after RAW 1000 that officials may bring him back as a trainer.


WWE officials are looking to be more edgier with RAW. The feeling is that Vince McMahon isn't behind the new push but obviously is on-board with it. Vince realizes that numbers are down and it's said that he is open to suggestions.

With the low ratings, WWE officials want to put out a product that's a little different than what we've seen over the past year or so. We can also expect to see more wrestling-heavy WWE programming.

If that's true, THANK THE HEAVENS OF HHH AND/OR WHOMEVER IS DOING THIS.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those IWC weirdos that goes insane and wants the Attitude era back, since that'll never happen. But edgier, more wrestling heavy stuff is the exact thing WWE needs. It doesn't need to curse or have hot chicks running around doing weird things every single second. It needs Bryan vs. Punk or Ziggler vs. Del Rio etc in matches that last longer than 3 minutes.

Also, Paige.

I really hope it's true as well. It is possible to put on a good edgy show for adults without going back to the Attitude era. Just look at some of the other promotions (the bigger ones, obviously, like ROH, NJPW, TNA, CMLL, etc.). It's easily possible to put on a great show whether it's TV-14 or PG; it's just that if you're PG, you usually have to be a bit more imaginative... :laugh:

I am actually digging Reigns atm, I think strangely (and obviously) he'll be the break out star of the group due to his family connections and size

WWE has started polling fans in focus groups online about what they live and don't like about the Divas division and what roles they would like to see the Divas in going forward. Some of the discussed roles beyond wrestling were love interests for the Superstars, General Managers, ringside managers, hosts for WWE programming, reality programming and dancers.

Anyone else think of the Nitro Girls at the end?


Oh, a couple of spoilers about to follow (one for Tribute to the Troops, and one for SmackDown)...
