• Latest WWE Release Revealed
According to PWInsider, Lisette Pineda (Manager of Global Talent Strategy and Development) has been released from WWE.
She was hired by WWE in January 2020.
She was very close to Triple H backstage and was considered his “top executive assistant”.
With Triple H being away from his WWE work since his heart procedure last year and WWE making a lot more releases now, people backstage in WWE thought this was just a matter of time because her work was limited with HHH not around.
WWE is slowly released members from HHH’s backstage team, with Road Dogg, William Regal & others being released prior to this.
WWE issued the following statement regarding this release:
“With the continued evolution of NXT 2.0, we’ve decided to part ways with some of the staff based in our Performance Center.
We thank them for their many contributions throughout the years and wish them the best.”

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (March 2, 1985) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1985, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV-show and the timeslot on TBS that came with it, to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 25, 1985.
This episode featured pre-taped matches & interviews on the road to the first ever WrestleMania event.
