– Below is a preview for this week’s 900th episode of WWE SmackDown, featuring The Undertaker return, “The Cutting Edge” with Shane McMahon and Dolph Ziggler defending the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz.
– The Daily Star, a tabloid out of England published a story yesterday claiming former WWE CEO Linda McMahon is rumored to be in the running for a position in the Commerce Department in President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet.
As we noted prior to this year’s Presidential election, The Washington Post reported former the two-time failed Republican Senatorial candidate McMahon recently donated $6 million to a super PAC supporting Donald Trump’s campaign for President of the United States.
– Speaking of Trump, PWTorch this week ran a story about Zeb Colter’s comments on the July 14th episode of the PWTorch Livecast where he claimed that Trump owes him because he lifted his campaign speeches from his WrestleMania 29 promo.
“I got a bone to pick with Donald Trump,” Colter told host Wade Keller. “At WrestleMania 29 in New Jersey, I went out in front of 82,000 people – it was Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio. And Donald Trump was there. After the match, I didn’t know he was there, but I sat down in the viewing area. A match or two later, Donald Trump walked in the viewing area with his daughter and his two sons. He walked up to me and tapped me on the shoulder and I looked up and it’s Donald Trump. He stuck out his hand and we started shakings hands and he said, ‘I really, really enjoyed your speech. It was fantastic.’ Then he walked off. And then I got to thinking when he started running, what he did is he stole my gimmick. He just renamed it ‘Make America Great again’ instead.”
