  • The Nattie news is false, she’s at 34 matches atm. Also Paige needs to stop Del Rio before WWE give up on her as well and straight up release her.

    • HouseOfMaryse

      From the video, she doesn’t seem to care at all. But he’s making her look bad to any and every other wrestling company that might want her.

    • MK126

      Its odd to see how “mehhh” she is about her return to WWE but on TD she was saying how her and Del Rio broke up and how WWE was everything to her and didnt wanna lose it

      • Gabriella Panajotova

        TD was months away and her relationships are always messy so wouldn’t be surprised if they broke up and then got back together.

        • MK126

          Yeah TD was filmed months ago but when you think about it this recent episode was the draft which happened in July? Its still fairly recent in comparison to past seasons and when they aired.

      • JP

        If the company pressured them to break up then she might have changed her feelings on them.

        • MK126

          I get that. Maybe its just me but I think talent relations has a real soft spot for Paige and dont want to see her waste her second opportunity at WWE cause she might not get it back. You figure that when she wasnt dating someone in the business she wasnt behind any scandals and now shes with Del Rio and its just one thing after another. It doesnt help that he keeps publically bashing them and saying they leaked her private video

          • Aye Mate

            One of the more interesting aspects of Paige’s response to the recent hacks was how she intimated that she was persuaded to create the media because of whom she trusted. It seems to me that men really bring her innate vulnerability to the surface – and her relationship with Del Rio seems decidedly unhealthy.

    • Robin Zabriskie

      maybe they mean as a manager also? you know with cesaro and tyson kidd or with the new hart foundation

  • BitchFit

    Maria Menounos , u better not come back and take other girls spotlight. (especially during mania which pisses me of) and go buy more fake twitter followers please.

  • Kyle

    Omg Maria Menounos stay far away from the ring please

  • Radic

    In order of news points…
    – Seriously, Diamante has been with Impact since March and only NOW has she been officially signed? Well, better late than never I suppose.
    – Its a shame Taeler isn’t sticking around with ROH, but seeing as they have only really put their womens matches as YouTube exclusive and dark matches, never on the main shows or iPPVs, she made the right call. She’s either WWE or Impact bound for sure. Hopefully with the latter case, should it happen, they treat her much better than they did before.
    – Justice For Summer!

  • Paige has disappointed me so badly. To think she was once one of my favorites. She needs to drop ADR stat and get her shit together.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    I am sure they’ll draft only active people and since Summer isn’t she’ll be arbitratily put wherever once she’s able to come back.

    Sunny better get her shit together. As dirty as WWE can be they are giving her multiple chances and I just hope she won’t let everyone down again.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    I’m up for Maria jobbing hard to someone, but anything more than that is really trying it with us fans. Nobody wants to see a random reporter chick to have a one-off in the ring…again.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Alberto should stop filming himself while drunk or high. He is doing so much harm to Paige’s work relations…as if this relationship wasn’t fucked already.
    If he seriously believes WWE, the way the company operates today, executed a sex scandal he’s insane or just plain dumb.

  • Geek God

    Okay then Natalya, she has another career highlight being the woman with the most ppv matches in history, so i hope she gets to cement that accomplishment ???

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      This is a feat likely to be broken by another female wrestler in a shorter time. For me, this is impressive because most of it she did it when women weren’t as important as they are today. Trish was close to this number too, as so was Beth. Back then it was something because of the lack of opportunities, Charlotte is almost at 20 (main roster PPVs) and she’s been there for like 2 years.

  • Victoria&Melina19

    No thanks Maria

  • MeddlingDiva

    Damn. I’ll give a positive note. Maria won more matches then Rosa Mendes and Eva Marie

  • MeddlingDiva

    I kinda feel bad for Summer Rae because she might become a free agent. Damn shame

    • PYM #TheRoadTo5

      Partially her fault for leaving for such a long time, and not really keeping a tight link with WWE at the same time.

      • MeddlingDiva

        Oh I thought she was getting a new gimmick. Eventually, they just gave up.

        • PYM #TheRoadTo5

          They can’t want it more than her. She shows little drive to want to get back in the ring. She was at the performance center for a few days and then went right back to partying.

          • MeddlingDiva


  • Maria Menounos please stop girl! You don’t wrestle at all, you have your shitty wrestlemania moment and that’s it. Amazing that the Superstar Shake-up will take two nights. Just shut Up Alberto el Patron. I hooe summer return soon, please. Maybe Taeler Hendrix will be participating on the WWE Women’s tournament.

  • Tunasha

    Hmmm, I’m pretty sure Natalya hasn’t compete in 40 PPV matches yet. Even if we count the kick off matches and network specials.

  • ?K . A . T ?

    Alberto is just making things even worse for Paige.

  • Milly

    <—- Making profits over the web is often as really easy (or maybe as problematical) just like earning profits off-line. Despite the fact that a great number of Online marketing authorities claim to possess a hidden knowledge process to earn instant money, the truth is, you will not opportunity you can emerge as wealthy person immediately by way of clicking a button or paying for numerous e-book. Generating revenue on the internet demands intense work as well as motivation. If you are ever wanting to invest sufficient time as well as effort into it, there are so many approaches for earning a lot more cash flow via internet.I am gaining $10000 or even extra per month out of this venture.Here’s the shortcut to make a profit though the rest are long-term making money online ideas???? http://qurl.com/kmk2f


    So you guys are really just going to ignore AJ’s book being released a few days ago??? Certain other sites that don’t even bother covering most women’s wrestling news had about 10 articles up with interviews and everything


      And considering the amazing message it spreads


    BTW those Maria comments below are killing me XD

  • Asa Loves You

    The only ring Maria can step into is the well with the little girl. Also, Sunny is trash.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    The fact that nattie has more ppv matches than any other woman in history and only has one title reign to show for it is sad. Seriously she has probably lost 90% of those matches probably making her the woman with the most ppv losses in history too. It’s sad that she has been one of the best womens wrestlers in the company at any given time during her run but they only use her to enhance weaker talent like Charlotte.

    Also I seriously hope WWE doesn’t rehire Maria she has nothing to bring to the table. Her acting is terrible and her wrestling is non existent. Please please keep her out of wwe I don’t want her or her husband’s stupid gimmicks to come with them. Seriously they have been using the same boring gimmick for how many years now?
