Styles-WWE Update, Matt Hardy Tweeting, RAW Ratings, More
Joey Styles tweeted the following: "WWE employees are voting on the Top 50 Superstars of all time for a DVD to be released in December."
Matt Hardy is still tweeting in character, asking his fans whether he should "fight the power" and stay in WWE or leave and go elsewhere. He also mentioned that he was told he'd be fired if he shows up on Smackdown next week. In response to that tweet, Chili from the group TLC asked why Matt can't just fire Vince for holding him back.
