• “They’re almost given too much too soon” – SmackDown Star On WWE Instantly Pushing Some NXT Wrestlers
Intercontinental Champion Big E was recently a guest on Busted Open Radio, where he discussed WWE pushing some NXT call ups immediately after they make the jump to the main roster.
Big E thinks that although they’re talented, the company should build them up first instead of inserting them into the main event scene directly.
Here’s what he said:
“A lot times what you’ll see – and I won’t name names – you’ll see talent who are called up or brought in and they’re almost given too much too soon.
Not that they don’t have the ability, but as a babyface especially, I don’t feel like I’m with you if you’ve been on the main roster two weeks and you already got a World Title shot.”

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (January 20, 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.
