• Jim Cornette Explains Why The Top Rope Broke At Yesterday’s WWE Live Event
WWE is in the United Kingdom right now for a tour (which is the reason why tonight’s SmackDown was taped last week).
During the Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley match at yesterday’s WWE Live Event in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, the top rope broke, which resulted in Lashley taking a nasty fall to the outside.

Lashley was said to be fine and was able to finish the match.
McIntyre tweeted the following about it:
“Thank you #WWENewcastle. We tore the house…and the ring down!”
ECW Legend Tommy Dreamer tweeted:
“It’s official @fightbobby is a Terminator. Hope you are ok.”
“…and some of y’all think I’m not the toughest guy in WWE 😂 😂 😂 😂 “
Wrestling Legend Jim Cornette had the following to say about this incident:
“This kind of stuff happens when you use real ropes like WWE always has instead of steel cables like almost every other promotion.
Harder to find people that know how to tie them right and higher chance of deterioration/breakage. Less spring off & more slack. I hate real ropes.”
