This year of wrestling news just won’t stop!
Amid news of sexual assault allegations, Vince McMahon is reportedly mulling a comeback to WWE. We’ll break down why such an attempt would lead to an absolute flood of more stories and issues for VKM.
But put all that aside: There was still a bunch of wrestling on TV. NXT Deadl1ne featured the new Iron Survivor Match, which thankfully wasn’t as much of a mess as it could have been. Plus, Ring of Honor: Final Battle kicked off a rough week for Chris Jericho as he lost both his title and to a debuting Action Andretti.
Oh and New Day in NXT! Let the twerk-offs begin!
The Main Event: Mandy Rose
Mandy Rose has been all over WWE. From Tough Enough, to NXT 1.0, to RAW, Smackdown and NXT 2.0. But now after a long reign with the NXT women’s title and as the head of her own faction, she’s officially been fired from WWE.
