Emma reacts to her release from WWE, Paige responds

Emma’s run with WWE is over. As noted earlier, she is among the names that were released on Sunday. Her release is a surprise because she was given more TV time in recent weeks and there were hints that she was going to feud with Paige. Obviously, that will no longer be happening.

WWE’s statement: “WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Emma. WWE wishes Emma the best in all of her future endeavors.”

On Twitter, Emma reacted to the news. She did not say much but, as you can see below, she indicated that she was heartbroken so the decision to part ways was not hers.

Paige responded:

Most fans might not know this but this is actually the second time that she’s been released by WWE. In 2014, she was released after being arrested for shoplifting an iPad case at a Wal-Mart. Emma said that she mistakenly walked out with it after using self-checkout. WWE reinstated her later that day.

For those of you that have asked, there are 90-day no-compete clauses in all WWE wrestler contracts so she would not be allowed on TV for another wrestling promotion for 90 days. She could, with WWE’s approval, work on independent shows and autograph signings during her 90-day no-compete.

Huge Superstar set to return after Survivor Series

The Survivor Series promotions have been going strong with both brands firing their best shots to send the best superstars to represent their brand for the fight for Brand Supremacy at Survivor Series. Since the card is pretty much stacked up right now, WWE can’t give away some much awaited returns just before the Survivor Series pay-per-view because it would not make any difference to the card of the pay-per-view.

In case you did not know WWE Superstar Paige was suspended twice in the last year once for 30 days and another time for 60 days along with her real life boyfriend Alberto Del Rio (now El Patron). Though Del Rio is totally done with the WWE, Paige has not given up and she is still under healthy contract with the company and will eventually return after training fully. Paige has healed up from the injuries that she suffered earlier this year and is currently training in ring for a potential return later this year.

Del Rio was recently interviewed during his publicity tour for MMA organization Combate Americas, when asked about details for Paige’s return to the WWE, he told “It’s going to happen pretty soon, I cannot give you any more details because I will get her in trouble. They told her to lay low and not to talk too much about it.

He also told “She’s in Orlando at the moment. She’s been there for the last six weeks. She’s probably days away from going back to WWE and doing something in the ring.”

Paige was drafted to Monday Night RAW during the Brand Extension drafts last year, however she did not appear on RAW since then. For those of you wondering which brand she’s headed to, it’s Smackdown LIVE. Yes, according to closest sources Paige will return on a Smackdown LIVE episode and will be pushed immediately.

Bullying Victim’s Mom: I’m Not At All Sorry For What I Did To My Daughter’s Bullies (Photos)

A mother who attacked two young teen girls that bullied her daughter was found guilty of assault on Tuesday, but defended her actions and maintained that she’s “not a thug.”

Joanne Higgs, 33, reportedly chased, pushed and punched 13-year-old Lilly Hulse and 15-year-old Dominique Nash after she discovered that Hulse had been bullying her daughter, Demi Knox, along with other students. Some students allegedly threw eggs at Higgs’ house.

“These kids were taunting me in the street, they were hanging round my house. There were shouting abuse at me and my daughter,” Higgs told the Manchester Evening News. “I had tried to resolve it with the school and some of the parents after the fight but had no joy. I just wanted them to stop harassing my daughter. She’d already suffered enough.


“I had tried to call the police to tell them about it,” she added.

Higgs’ attack followed a dispute on a playground between the teens and Demi. Higgs said she’s aware that she was wrong for assaulting the girls, but just wanted her daughter to stop being tormented.

“I know what I did was wrong but I’m not a thug or a chav [sic],” she said. “I acted on how I was feeling at that time. I don’t think I am the victim – it’s my daughter who has been the victim in all this. She’s had a nightmare.” According to Higgs, the bullying was so severe that she was forced to remove Demi from school.

Higgs was given a 15-week suspended sentence for assaulting the teens, and was ordered to compensate the victims.

“I want to put all this behind me,” Higgs said. “All I want is peace my daughter and my family. Demi has had no happy years at school.”

Middleton Technology School, the school that Demi, Hulse and Nash attended, issued a response to the incident and denied Higgs’ previous claims that staff didn’t intervene as much as they could have.

“I hope that Miss Higgs is not trying to deflect the responsibility for her actions by seeming to blame the school,” Middelton teacher Allison Crompton said. “I strongly refute Miss Higgs’ comments. As an adult, Miss Higgs made her own choices about her appalling behavior. The school was dismayed and disgusted that our students were attacked in this way by an adult.”

Husband Abruptly Jumps Out Of Car, Wife Realizes Situation And Quickly Grabs Camera

Children are taught at a young age to respect their elders and fortunately, this is a lesson that many follow as they become adults. As the elderly now live longer, they need more help with even the little things sometimes.
Fortunately, there are people out there who will recognize an opportunity to step in and help give our elders a hand. One such person is Chris Carter….

During a recent outing with his family, Chris saw an older man hunched over pushing a large lawnmower. Instead of driving by, Chris turned to his wife Tara and did something amazing.
Tara shared what happened next with the Love What Matters Facebook page. She was floored by her husband’s actions at first, but knew that what he did truly personifies his caring nature.
“This is one of the many reasons I love my husband. As we are driving home with Kylie and Gage, Chris suddenly turns the jeep around and says, ‘Take the food home and come back and get me.’ I didn’t know what he had seen but said okay.”

At first, Tara was a bit alarmed, but then what her husband does next warmed her heart. Chris’ generous, caring nature shone through and this Good Samaritan pulled over, then parked the car.
He hopped out of the vehicle and walked over to a stranger. The person appeared to be struggling a bit with the task at hand.
“We pull up and Chris takes the push mower from this elderly gentleman. I pray that my son learns from this and randomly helps people do things like his father does.”

Chris’ kind actions are a great example for their son how important it is to respect and honor our elders. We need more people like Chris in the world to show our youth how to act selflessly!
What a wonderful and compassionate act Chris carried out. He didn’t do it for attention or recognition, but instead because he’s simply a good guy.

He saw someone struggling and jumped to their aid. It’s times like this that we’re reminded of what a blessing we can be to others, just like Chris was to this gentleman.
This elderly gentleman truly was grateful for Chris’ help. Sometimes, even the simplest gesture will mean the world to someone else.

Brock Lesnar Responds To Jon Jones’ Challenge

As we noted earlier, new UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones challenged the former UFC Heavyweight Champion and the current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar to a fight after his UFC 214 win.

“Brock Lesnar, if you want to know how it feels like to get your a$$ kicked by a guy who weighs 40 pounds less than you, meet me in the Octagon!”

Associated Press contacted Lesnar for a comment on this and below is what “The Beast Incarnate” had to say about the challenge from Jones:

“Be careful what you wish for, young man.”

Lesnar is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion and has an MMA record of 5-3-1 NC. On the other hand, Jones is a two time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion (currently in his second reign) and has a record of 23-1.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross had the following to say about this possible super-fight:

“Interesting sound bytes from Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones regarding the potential of a UFC fight between the two perhaps some day in the future. Both men were accomplished amateur grapplers from their college days, and both are bad a$$ alpha males, but make no mistake about it that this surprising, and not so timely dialog. Jones fights Daniel Cormier this Saturday on PPV is all about selling a big money fight for UFC who is in need of as many new, marketable fights as they can create while their rising stars continue to ascend. With the investment in purchasing UFC so lofty, the new UFC needs to produce some revenue ‘hits’ and there is no doubt that a Lesnar-Jones fight would generate north of 1 million PPV buys quite easily, I’m thinking.

Yes, I do think that Brock Lesnar will again fight in the UFC because he can generate a giant, payday(s) for his family and, I assume, would still maintain a positive relationship with WWE. Seems like this matter of Lesnar’s return to UFC is inevitable and should be a win/win for all involved as it relates to the cash (and it’s all about the cash). Winning or losing a UFC fight won’t hamper Lesnar’s value to WWE in the least to my way of thinking. Based on what I know, I see no reason that a Lesnar return to UFC would cease Brock’s WWE paydays over the long haul.”

Nikki Bella wants to fight Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey’s impending debut in WWE has a lot of people talking. We don’t even know she’s doing yet but Ronda is bound to be in some kind of confrontation if her showdown with WWE’s Horsewomen is any indication of things.

Nikki Bella has been out nursing a neck injury since WrestleMania but TMZ caught up with the Total Bellas and Divas star/producer. They initially asked Nikki about her upcoming marriage to John Cena. She was coy with her response as she put her bags in the backseat of her car and you could tell she didn’t expect to have a camera on her.

Next, they asked Bella if she was excited about Ronda Rousey coming to WWE, “of course, I’d love to fight against her” Nikki Bella said. When asked if she was serious Nikki said she would fight with Ronda too if given the chance.

The future Mrs. Cena was asked if she thought Ronda was really coming to WWE, “I don’t know, I hope so” she replied.

But in the end, Nikki Bella said she hasn’t heard anything definite about Ronda coming to WWE. If she knows something, she sure isn’t telling anyone.

Who knows how WWE would use Ronda Rousey if they had the chance to book her on a more frequent basis? But for now, things are still up in the air even though all reports are it looks like she’s headed toward the ring for some kind of fun.

Matt Hardy makes another move to gain possession of his Broken Gimmick

Matt Hardy obviously wants his Broken Gimmick back. When it looked like WWE and The House Of Hardy were close to arranging an agreement with Anthem Sports to attain the Broken Gimmick, Matt and Jeff Hardy made some pretty bold allusions to their Impact Wrestling personas on Raw. But that deal fell through because Anthem Sports wanted a lot of money and royalties. WWE also didn’t want to promote something they didn’t own and had to pay royalties on using a name. Apparently, they didn’t want another “Hulk/Marvel” deal.

But even though Matt Hardy had to go back to just being his old self once again, he still hasn’t changed that blonde streak in his hair. Therefore, some have translated that to mean fans should lose hope in seeing Matt Hardy’s Broken Brilliance once more.

To add even more fuel to this speculation, Matt Hardy recently submitted evidence to prove the Broken Matt gimmick is his. Even though his first attempt to copyright the Broken Matt gimmick was initially refused, Matt is trying again and submitted a new “specimen” in the form of a CWF Mid-Atlantic Wrestling poster which shows Matt in his Broken Gimmick.

This poster was from when The Hardys were on their Expedition Of Gold and snatching up as many indie tag titles they could before jumping to ROH and then soon back to WWE.

Matt also added an IP Lawyer out of Nashville, Tennessee to his team in order to help secure this treasured Broken trademark.

He just submitted this new evidence on October 31st, so no new information has come out from the USPTO regarding the trademark just yet. But hopefully, they’ll have better news for Matt than they did in May when they refused his first try.

Ronda Rousey comments on WWE rumors

During the last several weeks, there have been tons of rumors swirling about Ronda Rousey’s future with WWE. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that there are plans to do a MMA Horsewomen vs. WWE Horsewomen storyline/match in the near future that would lead to a singles match involving Rousey and possibly Charlotte Flair.

We’ve heard comments from Flair and Stephanie McMahon and they seem open to Rousey stepping in a WWE ring but we haven’t heard much from Rousey…until now.

TMZ Sports caught up with Rousey and husband Travis Browne at LAX. When asked about the WWE rumors, Rousey said, “If you were a real fan, would you really wanna know?” She said that she tells her friend, Shayna Baszler, not to tell her anything about what she’s doing in WWE because it’s better that way. Baszler is under a WWE deal.

Browne was asked if he would make the jump to WWE: “We’re still making the decision on my part to see where we go in the future, where I go in the future.” Rousey added, “We are at the crossroads and we have the luxury of time

Cris Cyborg calls out Ronda Rousey for a match in WWE?

Cris Cyborg has apparently called out Ronda Rousey for a match in WWE. It’s no secret that WWE has had talks with Rousey for a potential match but it looks like Cyborg wants in on the action.

Cyborg posted video of her training session with former Tough Enough contestant Gabi Castrovinci (aka former TNA Knockout Raquel) and seemed to have offered to wrestle in a tag team match with Castrovinci as her partner against Rousey and a partner of her choice.

Rousey’s MMA career may be over after her UFC 207 defeat but she is still in demand to do other things outside of the sport. The Cyborg vs. Rousey fight is something Dana White has wanted to put together for the last couple of years but issues with Cyborg’s management and UFC have prevented them from making the fight happen. Cyborg has also claimed that she could not get down to Rousey’s weight class without risking her health. If this fight…err match were to happen then it would have to be somewhere else and WWE might be the right place. It’s too late to set it up for WrestleMania 33 but WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans doesn’t sound like such a bad idea.

She Didn’t Think Prince Harry Would Recognize Her, But His Face When He Sees Her Says It All

Prince Harry meets a lot of people each year through the events that he attends and the charity organizations he supports. And while he’s very busy carrying out tasks under the Crown, he makes sure to spend time with his fans.
When people learn that the prince is coming to town, some of them go to great extremes to see him in person. The lucky ones may get to shake his hand or receive a kiss on the cheek.
One woman spent seven hours waiting in the rain so she could meet one of her favorite members of the royalty. She first met him two years earlier and hoped he would remember her.

The prince was visiting Sydney, Australia, to promote the Invictus Games. While he was touring Sydney Harbor, Daphne Dunne, a 97-year-old widow, patiently waited with throngs of other fans.
The prince slowly maneuvered himself through the crowd to greet people when he spotted Daphne. She had nothing to fear because he recognized her right away. He immediately reached out to her.

Daphne first met the prince when he was working with the Australian Defense Force and stopped at the Sydney Opera House. He picked Daphne out of the crowd because she was wearing numerous military medals. One in particular, the Victoria Cross, stood out.
Daphne is a veteran of the Australian Women’s Army service. She explained to the prince how her first husband, who died at the age of 24 during World War II, was awarded the Victoria Cross posthumously. They had only been married for one year when he passed away.

Daphne wears the medals to to honor the memory of her husband, Albert Chowne. She often puts them on for events supporting those involved in the service. When the prince met her the first time, he gave her a kiss on the cheek. He repeated the gesture the second time around. Daphne told reporters:

“He remembered me. And gave me another kiss on the other side.”

The prince spent a few moments chatting with Daphne and giving her a big hug.
Like many around the world, Daphne respects the prince’s dedication to veterans and members of the military. He developed the Invictus Games in 2014, which allows wounded, injured, or sick armed services personnel to compete in various sporting events.
Sydney, Australia, will be hosting the event in 2018. There’s no doubt that Daphne will make a concerted effort to see the prince again. The third time’s the charm!
