For the record, Meltzer backed up PWInsider and says WWE told the SD wrestlers they were going to Orlando and not Detroit yesterday, then for some bizarre reason denied it, only to confirm it hours later. So basically they’re just trying to control the narrative and wanted to make PWInsider look bad.

Everything from the talent to the sets to the lighting of every show just feels like the same old same old. I don’t bother watching anymore because I feel like I can sit down whenever and it’s always the same. This however is going to make me want to watch at least for a minute.
I'm not sure studio-wrestling wouldn't get old after awhile too, but it would certainly be a freshening up of the product.


I’m sure it will suck almost immediately but I’d like to think a change would be the spark they need.

I don't think PWInsider needs any help in that area

Well in this case PWInsider seems to have been right and the story that WWE floated was the incorrect one.  I think PWInsider generally does a great job, except when they try to cover real-world events or go off on tangents.  And Dave Scherer's Twitter is just awful.  He's a tiny dick on PWInsider but a ginormous cock on Twitter.

Just my opinion, but I always feel that Meltzer and Alvarez still come off as wrestling fans writing and talking about their love of wrestling, even if Meltzer takes it far too seriously.

At some point, Scherer and Johnson got it into their heads that they are journalists, which they are not even close to being. And Richard Trionfo must be the most the most boring man on the planet.

WWE just sent me an e-mail announcing the returns of John Cena, Jeff Hardy, and Paige on SD! tonight with no indication that anything was out of the ordinary at all.

This Monday's Raw taping in Pittsburgh, PA has been canceled, PWInsider.com has confirmed.

For the first time ever, Raw will be broadcast live from the WWE Performance Center on the USA Network.

This move follows WWE's decision to cancel tonight's Smackdown taping in Detroit, moving it to the PC.

It is quite possible the the PC will be the new regular home for WWE's flagship series for the foreseeable future.

It’s definitely not ideal but they are in a very unique and fortunate situation having the PC to fall back on, and with zero sports running now they will have the most eyes possible watching at least for the next few weeks.

Until the first wrestler, referee or agent tests positive.

Could be a brilliant way to win a battle royal. Start sneezing and everyone else eliminates themselves to get away.

Full Sail University, the home of WWE NXT's weekly broadcasts, announced today that they are shutting down all classes, labs and "group events" going forward due to the coronavirus outbreak, which was declared a National Emergency today in the United States. This would likely mean NXT's live Wednesday night tapings at Full Sail Live are also suspended, which would mean the brand would likely resort to broadcasting out of the WWE Performance Center, as it did this past week due to a conflict that prevented them from running Full Sail.

Did Chris Benoit murder his family again? There’s a lot of fake cheer and cheesy lines being regurgitated tonight.

I just started watching but I can’t imagine anything will be better than Bayley waving her arms for imaginary fans to “get up”.  And do they really need mics?
