- I appeared on BBC Sportshour yesterday to discuss Chyna's passing, which you can check out in the video above. On the show, I discussed Chyna's influence in the business and why I feel that she is the biggest female star of this generation.
- As noted, Rolling Stone ran a long feature about John Cena earlier this week. Complex has an article here about Cena's comments from the interview where he talked about missing blood in pro wrestling. In case you missed it, Cena said, "I'd much rather it [WWE] be a program geared toward me, whether that's TV-14 or sometimes even more graphic than that, which is what I like.
"For one thing, profanity brought fire out of people with personalities that backed the language. It's very difficult to say, 'Oh, you're being poopy,' especially when they're meant to be fighting words. And now, if someone starts to bleed, the referee intervenes to stop the bleeding. But before, you'd just let it fly. Blood is one of the things that made fights cool. Like, you knew it had gotten serious. I understand why we don't do it anymore. Vince has been a coach to me, a father figure, a boss, and a friend, and his goal and my goal are the same: to make the company be as big as it can be. But yeah, the blood is one thing I miss."
