• Former Local WWF Announcer Passes Away

According to several different sources, former WWF Announcer Kal Rudman has passed away at the age of 91.

No cause of death has been revealed yet, but at this high age it’s safe to say that we’re talking about natural causes here.

Rudman mostly did the announcing for the Philadelphia market, including televised house shows and the local syndication program.

He’s best remembered for being the backstage interviewer for a Philadelphia-based TV channel called ‘PRISM’, where the World Wrestling Federation aired all of their house shows from the Philadelphia Spectrum until the TV deal ended in 1989.

• “It is truly unfortunate” – Corey Graves On Big E Playing Second Fiddle To Roman Reigns

During the latest episode of WWE’s After The Bell podcast, WWE Commentator Corey Graves talked about the upcoming WWE Championship match between Big E, Seth Rollins & Kevin Owens on January 1, 2022 at the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view.

While discussing it, Corey said it is unfortunate that Big E is the #2 full-time guy in the company right now, behind Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Here’s what he said:

“This Triple Threat at Day 1 is also a huge opportunity for Big E to really become the focus. I do believe that it is truly unfortunate as the WWE Champion Big E is always going to be forced to play second fiddle to Roman Reigns.

This is implied for no reason other than Roman Reigns is functioning at such a level that our business has not been able to see in a long time. Roman is that guy who is incredible, putting on bangers after bangers, compelling promos.

You have got Paul Heyman, The Bloodline, everything involved in the Universal Championship picture right now. Including Brock Lesnar. It is just next level.”

• “Are we really going to trust the championship with this guy?” – Triple H On WWE Legend

During a recent appearance on The Ariel Helwani Show, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr revealed that Triple H wasn’t in favor of Jeff Hardy winning the WWE Championship in 2008 because he thought Hardy wasn’t trustworthy.

Here’s what Freddie said:

“Hunter did bring it up, and everybody else was cool with it. Nobody had said anything, and I am sitting in there getting nervous. And Triple H says, ‘Are we really going to trust the championship with this guy?’ That’s when I knew that was a sniper bullet, man.

Jeff wasn’t trustworthy as champ. It was a feel-good moment for fans, but wasn’t a sustainable one. Hunter is about sustainable championship runs because that’s bankable, and reliable money for the company.

His philosophy was sound then, and it’s still sound now, and I just know I pushed hard on that one because I thought it was worth it.”

Jeff Hardy is a 3-time World Champion in WWE. He won the WWE Championship once and the World Heavyweight Championship twice.

• WWE Hall Of Famer Comments On Possibly Returning To AEW

During a recent appearance on the Wrestle Buddy Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Ricky Morton talked about The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express possibly returning to AEW one day, Tony Khan signing top WWE Stars & more.

Below are the highlights:

On possibly facing FTR in AEW:

“The doors are always open. I know on the independent circuit, Robert and I are fixing to wrestle FTR. I did a little thing on air where I slapped Tully Blanchard and remember they piledrived me. They did this, but they didn’t take it nowhere else.”

You can watch their segment with FTR in AEW below:

On being a fan of AEW:

“Any wrestling business that opens up, I love it. Because it’s for the boys. The boys have more places to work. I’m here, I’m on the independent circuit. I’m fixing to fly to the very tip corner of Maine to wrestle this weekend. It’s all-new guys there that I’ve never seen. When AEW first opened up, I thought it was the greatest thing in the world.”

On AEW signing a lot of WWE’s former top stars:

“I don’t know if its the ego trip of Vince and Tony Khan, I really don’t know, but then again I was watching AEW once again last week, and when I cut the TV on I thought I was watching WWE two years ago. But see, it’s great.

It’s good to have those guys because a lot of them teach younger guys, but if you want this business to grow, you have to build your own stars. I don’t think the ratings went up that much from bringing in those guys.”

On Marko Stunt getting signed by All Elite Wrestling:

“Fans like their new talents. Marko [Stunt]. Whoever expected him to get a break? The brother’s what, two-foot nothing? To meet him and hear him say, ‘I’m the happiest guy in the world for it,’ because he was there to get that break. There’s a thousand more guys out there like that, that they need to focus on a little bit more.”
