  1. Former WWE Superstar Big Cass (CaZXL) took to Twitter and threatened the life of AEW star Joey Janela. He wrote, “Hey @janelababy. Say one more word about me and your life will end. Real talk.#HowYouDoin” The tweet was deleted not too long after it was made. Cass made another tweet this evening and sent a message to everyone who weighed-in. “It’s a work you morons,” he wrote. Janela responded to that tweet and wrote, “Only person youre working is yourself [clown emoji]” Janela added in another tweet, “Don’t come at me with threats then try to cover up your tracks, I would never ever work with you. I gave you the benefit of the doubt and wished you well but it turns out you’re just a moron….” There’s still no clear word yet on what brought the original comments on, but Cass and Janela had an incident back in September that could have ended with Cass going to jail, if it weren’t for Janela declining to press charges. These were Cass’ first tweets since the incident. You can read coverage of that incident by clicking here, here, and here. Below are the related tweets and a screenshot of the deleted post:  
  2. WWE Backstage analyst CM Punk took to Twitter today and commented on WWE as it appears he is catching up on material for his return to the show on Tuesday at 11pm ET on FS1. Punk first asked fans if a Finn Balor vs. AJ Styles match was any good. He wrote, “I gotta watch a @FinnBalor V @AJStylesOrg match for a segment we are doing on @WWEonFOX tomorrow. Is it any good? [emoji face with monacle]” Punk then commented on the “too sweet” gesture that Styles, Balor and The OC do, which originated with 2020 WWE Hall of Famers the nWo. He also poked fun at how wrestlers, mainly new champions and call-ups or signings, take backstage photos with Triple H. He wrote, “I don’t get the ‘too sweet’ thing. Rasslin cosplay. Side bar, does everyone just take pics with @TripleH now?” Punk continued and seemed amazed at the pro wrestling world in 2019. He added, “Man. What a different world. I’m basically unfrozen caveman lawyer. Your world frightens and confuses me. #rasslin” Punk also GIF responded to a WWE On FOX tweet welcoming him back to the show, and saying host Renee Young will take care of him.

  4. Nia Jax provided an update for her in-ring return when she posted a video on her Instagram account showing her running the ropes at the WWE Performance Center with the comment “Testing out the new knees!” Jax has been out of action since April when she tore both of her ACLs. The recovery time for such an injury usually takes around 9 to 12 months so this update is extremely positive and could mean her in-ring return is right around the corner. We last saw Nia in action at WrestleMania 35 where she took part in the Women’s Tag Team Championship match with Tamina vs The IIconics, Sasha Banks and Bayley, and Beth Phoenix and Natalya. So it would be great to Nia return before then. A surprise entrant at the Royal Rumble would make a perfect return for Jax. A big pop, beat up and throw out a few opponents, reassert her dominance and get back to kicking some ass. Her return in 2020 would definitely give either of the RAW or SmackDown rosters something to think about. Due to the injury, Jax wasn’t included in the most recent draft so it is unknown which brand she would be a part of upon her return.

  5. Former WWE star Shad Gaspard from the team Cryme Tyme responds to ACH:  
  6.                    Indie superstar ACH issued a short statement on Twitter early this morning to announce that he is quitting the pro-wrestling industry. The man formerly known as Jordan Myles in NXT states that he hates the business, and the “sh***y fans who trash talk him on a regular basis. Most notably, ACH claims that the industry is full of snakes, and that he no longer wishes to pursue this dream. He has apparently canceled all of his future booking. After being granted his release from WWE, ACH returned to several former promotions, including AAW and a surprise appearance at MLW’s Opera Cup in New York City. MLW had released a recent statement welcoming him back to the company.  
  7.                    During a recent interview with comicbook.com, Lana revealed that she’d like to play Sonya Blade in the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie and discussed how she feels about getting death threats in connection with her current love triangle storyline.

  8.   If MVP voting were to take place today for the NFL and NBA, Lamar Jackson and Luka Doncic would be the favorites at age 22 and 20, respectively. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback and Dallas Mavericks forward potentially represent the future of not just their respective teams, but their sports as a whole.  Along those same lines, Rhea Ripley represents the future of women’s wrestling in WWE and arguably its entire NXT brand. The 23-year-old Australian phenom has had as impressive a month in professional wrestling as Jackson and Doncic did in their respective athletic fields. Despite household names like Becky Lynch, Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan headlining last month’s Survivor Series pay-per-view event, no star has shone brighter than Ripley’s. “I thought it would take a lot longer [to reach this point in my career],” Ripley told Yahoo Sports. “My work ethic is don’t stop until you reach the top pretty much and I put in dedication every single day of my life, I’m glad it’s paying off. I don’t care how young I am, I’m going to work until I’m at the top.” For Ripley, the top is rapidly approaching. In a five-day span in November, Ripley wrestled against Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks and captained teams opposite NXT women’s champion Shayna Baszler as well as female competitors from Raw and Smackdown. Four events, four matches, zero losses. “I don’t really know how to put it into words to be honest,” Ripley said. “It was such a crazy, crazy week. I couldn’t really take it in too well while I was doing it, which was unfortunate because I was so busy. I have had time to take it in more now. To look back on it, it was life-changing and career-changing.” ‘I’ve got to give people what they’ve paid for’  Change has played a prominent role in Ripley’s rise to stardom in WWE.  After making her debut with the company in 2017 at the Mae Young Classic, Ripley decided she needed to do something to stand out among the crowd of female talent. A tall, physically gifted blonde, Ripley was frequently compared to Charlotte Flair and Toni Storm. She would be eliminated in the second round of the inaugural tournament. Barely old enough to drink, Ripley developed the look that would come to define her tenure with WWE. “I wasn’t confident in myself at the first Mae Young Classic because I wasn’t being myself,” Ripley said. “I went out there and was trying to please everyone, be what they thought I should be. I was trying to make everyone happy, but it wasn’t making me happy at all. At the second Mae Young Classic, I changed everything, I was completely different. I was myself, the person that I know I am and brought the house down.” Ripley would advance to the semifinals of the 2018 edition of the Mae Young Classic and would join NXT UK that same year. Ripley’s ascent would begin in earnest as she became the first-ever NXT UK Women’s Champion. Despite spending four years on Australia’s independent circuit, there was a bit of a culture shock for Ripley when she came to WWE.  “I guess wrestling isn’t as big in other countries as it is here, especially Australia,” Ripley said. “When I went to NXT UK and I was part of the women’s championship tournament, I saw all of those people and I was absolutely floored. I had never wrestled in front of that many people before. At home, I think the largest crowd I ever wrestled was in front of 500 people. To go from that to all of this now, there are so many people watching you and trying to enjoy the show, I think ‘Man, I’ve got to give people what they’ve paid for. Let’s go.’” Ripley’s success is a testament to just how far women’s wrestling and international talent has come in WWE. Partially due to the inception of NXT and the WWE Performance Center, the company continues to bring in some of the most diverse talent in its history. Ripley is just one example of the kind of change WWE has undergone over the past five years. “To be able to show everyone what wrestling is and who we are is insane,” Ripley said. “The WWE Performance Center is filled with so much international talent and all of them have something to prove or something to show. I’m proud of everyone.” Trash cans, chairs and broken nails  Ripley returned to the U.S. version of NXT back in August, setting up a program with Baszler and slowly turning babyface in the process. On Oct. 30, Ripley and Baszler’s singles feud would be put on hold as the two were named captains for the first-ever women’s “WarGames” match. Two days later, due to travel issues that prevented some talent from making it to “SmackDown Live,” WWE began an “NXT invasion” storyline ahead of the annual Survivor Series pay-per-view. Ripley would play a prominent role throughout the month, setting the stage for the aforementioned career-changing, five-day span. First, there would be a showdown on Ripley’s home turf with Lynch, whose popularity level went nuclear at the same time in 2018. Despite being a fan favorite since then, “The Man” was no match for “The Nightmare” and her newfound popularity. “To be able to step into the ring with Becky Lynch, the Raw women’s champion, on NXT and get the crowd to change its reaction, that was insane in itself,” Ripley said. “I had so much confidence that day because of that.”  Next, Ripley was placed in a triple-threat match on “SmackDown” against Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair. Two of NXT’s famed “Four Horsewomen,” Banks and Flair have a combined 17 WWE title reigns. Ripley pinned Flair to pick up NXT’s first major victory of the weekend. The following night, Ripley and seven other women were entrusted with kicking off “TakeOver: WarGames 3.” Of the four events, it’s safe to assume Ripley had been looking forward to her turn in the iconic match most. “WarGames was a match that I’ve dreamt of my entire life,” Ripley said. “I’ve always wanted to have a match where I get to use weapons and I never got that back home. That was my first time being able to use all of that stuff in a match — legally. We put on a match that no one expected from us and helped prove why NXT is the main roster. “We wanted to steal the show, we wanted to prove that females in wrestling can go just as hard as the guys. We had so much to prove and put on the line. I think we aced it, we absolutely killed it. Yes, I was a little banged up and bruised, but I was very happy and excited that I didn’t care. The main thing that I felt were two broken nails that I suffered while pulling the trash cans and chairs out from under the ring. My fingers were on fire.” Ripley capped off the weekend by captaining NXT’s women’s team in a traditional Survivor Series match. In a surreal moment, Ripley would pin Banks to win her third match in five days. “I never expected to be on Survivor Series or any pay-per-view so early in my career,” Ripley said. “To be able to compete and win for NXT, it was electrifying and amazing in itself. I’m not a huge cryer but I definitely felt like I wanted to cry happy tears. It was career-making.” If there was any debate entering Survivor Series which brand and star were the future of WWE, Ripley and NXT put it to bed with a dominant showing. Ripley’s performance, in particular, managed to capture the eye of former NXT women’s champion Paige and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus. “Trish Stratus, what a name and she’s talking about me and putting me over,” Ripley gushed. “That’s not something I would have thought was possible a couple of years ago. To listen to her say what she did, it’s insane. She’s one of the best and most well-respected athletes, especially for the females in WWE, to hear her put me over like that, it’s amazing. It makes me feel so special, makes me feel like everything I’m doing is worth it and right.” Ripley remains on a collision course with Baszler, hoping to capture the NXT women’s championship. After coming into WWE without a true identity, Ripley has quieted any and all naysayers and established herself as the future of women’s wrestling. “To get to this point and have people there supporting me and loving what I’m doing, enjoying what I’m doing, it makes it that much better,” Ripley said. “It makes it taste that much better when I achieve something.” Source:  https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/for-ww-es-nxt-the-future-is-now-and-it-belongs-to-rhea-ripley-171837339.html
  9.                    Carmella recently spoke with The Fayetteville Observer to promote tonight’s WWE SmackDown. Regarding her future in the ring, the former Women’s Champion said she’s not sure when she wants to retire, and she’s not ready to slow down any time soon. She was asked how long she thinks she will continue to wrestle. “That’s a great question. I have no idea,” Carmella said. “There’s no cap. Right now I’m 32 years old, and I’m having a blast. I don’t know what the future holds, but I want to continue to be a part of this women’s revolution and make history. Right now is the best time to be a lady wrestler, especially in the WWE. We’re just taking over. I’m not ready to slow down anytime soon.” The interviewer asked what she meant when she said it’s a good time to be a lady wrestler. Carmella talked about the women’s revolution, and said she couldn’t be more proud of the WWE women. “Yes, we’re in the middle of a women’s revolution,” Carmella said. “The women are making history left and right. I was lucky enough to be the very first woman in a ladder match for the money in the bank contract for the women and that was a historical moment and I’m so grateful that my name will always go down in history for that. But you know, the women are main eventing now, and that wasn’t something that was ever heard of before for the women. We’re just breaking barriers, and I couldn’t be more proud of our women.” Carmella was also asked about her goals beyond pro wrestling. She said she’s focused on getting the SmackDown Women’s Title back, but she’s also interested in being a role model for younger girls. “Right now I’m really just focused on getting the SmackDown championship back,” Carmella said. “But beyond wrestling, I’m really trying to use my voice and platform to spread a message to young girls that they can do whatever it is they want to do. Nowadays there’s so much negativity with social media and everyone’s physical image. I’m trying to help little girls know that, whatever it is they want to do they can do it. If you’re getting bullied or you’re getting made fun of for the way you look or anything like that, you can’t listen to what those people say, you have to believe in yourself and know that anything you can put your mind to, you can make happen. It’s all about believing in yourself and being true to who you are.” Source: https://www.fayobserver.com/entertainment/20191205/wwe-wrestler-women-are-making-history-in-ring
  10.                    WWE superstar Sasha Banks posted on social media that she hopes to face Japanese wrestling legend Meiko Satomura in 2020. Banks writes, “2020 I want to wrestle @satomurameiko. Satomura responsed to the Boss, writing “I hope too Sasha!” See the exchange below. Meiko Satomura competed in the 2018 Mae Young Classic, where she was defeated in the semifinals by tournament winner Toni Storm. She is the founder of Sendai Girls’ Pro Wrestling, and has appeared in DDT Pro, Chikara, Stardom, and is the current women’s champion in PROGRESS.
  11. On the latest episode of his After The Bell podcast, WWE commentator Corey Graves broke down superstar Charlotte Flair’s recent booking on weekly television, admitting that he’s not a fan of the former women’s champion current storyline, and doesn’t believe that she is either. Charlotte herself responded to Graves comments on Twitter. She writes, “The Problem is: He’s not entirely wrong.” You can listen to Graves comments below.  
  12.                                                    Jim Ross discussed the famous animosity between Paul Heyman and Jerry Lawler on the latest episode of Grilling JR. Heyman and Lawler worked together during the ECW “invasion” of WWE in 1997. The two reportedly did not warm to each other, to say the least, and as Ross brought up, Lawler admitted to intentionally breaking Heyman’s jaw during a segment in Memphis in 1997. Highlights from the discussion, and the full podcast, are below: On Lawler and Heyman’s relationship behind the scenes at the time: Source:  https://411mania.com/wrestling/jim-ross-on-jerry-lawler-and-paul-heymans-dislike-of-each-other-why-they-didnt-get-along/
