• Paige Makes A Money In The Bank Qualifying Match On SmackDown Live

WWE announced the following:

Naomi to face Sonya Deville in a Money in the Bank Qualifying Match Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE

“Sonya Deville asked for another opportunity to qualify for the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, and she will get one this Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE, when she faces Naomi.

The former Absolution member believes that because Mandy Rose was the one who tapped out to Becky Lynch’s Dis-arm-her in last week’s Triple Threat qualifier, she still deserved another chance to advance to Chicago on June 17, taking to social media to state her case.

She was granted a second chance, but she won’t be facing a pushover. Deville will have to defeat former SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi, who’s looking for a path to claim the title for a third time.

Who will qualify for the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match? Find out this Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!”

• Former WWE Wrestler Reveals Why He Left Impact Wrestling – I Didn’t Want To Go Down With A Sinking Ship

During a recent interview with Busted Open Radio, Tyrus (f.k.a Brodus Clay in WWE) discussed the origin of Funkasaurus character in WWE and his decision to leave Impact Wrestling.

Below are the highlights:

On origin of Funkasaurus character in WWE:

“When I was in the WWE, you wanted to be on that TV, and it didn’t matter what situation I was in. Perfect example: when I left Alberto [Del Rio], they had ran all the things for me to kill it and I was getting ready to be this big heel. Well, Mark [Henry] came back, excited and ready to go. Kane healed up, he was gonna be a heel. Big Show, it depends on his mood. And they were like, ‘do you wanna wait three months while we see what happens with Mark and Kane?’ And I was like, ‘no, give me whatever you want. I don’t give a d**n.'”

On his decision to leave Impact Wrestling:

“Impact does 300,000 on a good week as far as ratings go, so obviously what you’re doing is not working. So I think it’s just best if I take my ball and go home and I’ll wait this out and see what happens as far as my wrestling career. But, it’s not a good thing for my brand to be a part of Impact, when every week it’s a different change or a different person. It was just too much, and I felt that I had earned the right, out of the respect that my peers have for me in the ring and how I carry myself out the ring. If it’s a sinking ship, I’m not going down with it. So, I just thought it was best for me to move on.”
