• New Episode Of “Something Else to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard” Delayed Due To Creative Differences With WWE
The latest edition of “Something Else to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard” on the WWE Network about WWE’s ECW brand got delayed because of creative differences with WWE, according to podcast co-host Conrad Thompson.
Below is what Conrad said in a Twitter video:
“No show today. WWE wanted to edit some stuff, we’ve got creative differences, it ain’t airing. I wanted you to hear it directly from us. It’s not because we didn’t tape the show, we did, we’re just not happy with the final product. This is the first time this has happened and rather than just throw something up to have something up, it’s going to air on Friday.
We’re not re-shooting it, Bruce and I are done, we’re happy with it but we’re not going to change the narrative. I don’t want to white-wash everything that ECW was. So I’m fighting for it. We’re going to get you the best possible product to you this Friday on the WWE Network, with a delay, and our most controversial ‘Something Else to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard’ ever. Tune in Friday.”
Heads up @PrichardShow fans! No #SomethingElseToWrestle on the @WWENetwork today. @bruceprichard and I shot the show this past weekend but “creative differences” are going to keep us off the air today. I’m fighting for us, the fans. Tune in this Friday for WWE’s ECW. pic.twitter.com/8EBqRhIRR9

• WWF Veteran Dealing With A Health Issue
According to the Wrestling Observer, Old School WWF Veteran and current NXT General Manager William Regal has been dealing with a health issue as of late.
This is the reason why he wasn’t show during a recent segment on NXT when Ricochet & Velveteen Dream went into his office (as he missed the NXT TV tapings due to his health issues). The issues began prior to WrestleMania 34.
No word yet on when Regal will return to work.
