Triple H On Who WWE Considers Competition
In an interview with CBS Sports to promote the upcoming TakeOver, Triple H was asked who he considers to be WWE’s main competition:
“When you say, ‘What’s the No. 2 promotion?’ and ‘WWE doesn’t have a promotion knocking on its door and pushing them,’ Raw and SmackDown do. Raw and SmackDown have a promotion right on their tail pushing them to do more. That promotion is going to run a show on Saturday night at the Barclays Center, and it’s called NXT.”
“[NXT] is going to set a bar, and the main roster is going to have to step up to that bar. And trust me, those are all people that are coming from NXT, and now the kids here are pushing them to do the same thing that they pushed the people in front of them to do.”
“I don’t think anyone forces anyone to make adjustments, I think it’s just that the world changes. What people will accept changes? What people will like changes?
“People’s styles that I bring in, I’m not trying to change these performers, I’m trying to give them a platform and then take them on that platform and make the biggest, global star you can make. Whether that goes on to NXT and then on to SmackDown or Raw, whatever that is. A lot of these kids, I want them to be headlining WrestleMania.”
Ric Flair Had Part of Bowel Removed
It can now be confirmed that Ric Flair had part of his bowel removed last week. It was previously reported that he had colon surgery, but the issue was actually higher up the intestinal tract.
It’s not known how much was removed or whether this means he needs a temporary or permanent colostomy bag, but the issue was so severe that it caused kidney and other organ damage.
The two time WWE Hall of Famer will now need to limit his alcohol consumption and make dietary changes to put less stress on his digestive system.
Tammy Sytch Discusses Porn
WWE Hall of Famer Tammy “Sunny” Sytch recently spoke with Jim Ross about her adult pay site and what it contains:
“The way I came across it; I have some friends that are actually in the porn industry. We’ve been friends for years. When you are an artist, you get to know people from all walks of life and you get to know them for the type of people that they are. I don’t judge anybody; I’ve never judged anyone. Well, one of my good friends, her name is Kendra Lust, she’s a big name porn star. I’ve noticed on her page, she had this link to her page called, ‘Only Fans’, and I asked her about it and she said that she puts her porn content on the page, but she said anybody can do this page anybody that they want to do it.”
“For instance, So-Cal Val does it as well, but in other ends of the spectrum. So, what I did was I am kind of in-between. So-Cal Val does it where she posts cute pictures of her posing in fashion, with her fiancé out in England, just like cute things like that, and she charges x-amount of dollars for it.
“Kendra Lust is the opposite where she shows her hardcore porn content for x-amount of dollars. I am in the middle of the two of them. I post mostly selfies and pictures; like, a lot of pictures that I have had on my phone for over the years. Sometimes it’s just cute selfies of me sitting in my car, or the beach, cooking, or doing something like that.
“Then I also take it to the next step with a little bit of racier content; it’s not XXX-porn, it’s more like Playboy type material,” Sytch explained. “Some selfies are just like a Playboy content; it’s not hardcore stuff, it’s not crazy, I think I only have four videos on there, with hundreds of selfies, or something like that, but that’s basically it. It’s harmless. I am able to charge a little more a month because I do show more than her; not taking anything away from her. She can show whatever she wants on her page, but she’s never shown any nudity in her career, so she charges a bit less, but I can charge more because of it. I charge a little more than Kendra Lust as well because I think her content is available already everywhere that they are not going to pay the high-end dollar just to see her stuff because they can see it for free on the internet.”
