The WWE Morning Paper: Hulk Hogan, Wrestlemania 30, WWE 2K15

So you’re getting ready for school or work in the morning and want to read up on fresh content before leaving for the day? Come read The WWE Morning Paper! This will be your weekday (possibly future weekends as well) hub for the latest news inside and outside the squared circle for Vince McMahon’s company as well as TNA sprinkled in (unless they get cancelled).

Here’s the wrestling information you need to know for August 4th, 2014 version of The WWE Morning Paper.


  • Despite the money loss, there are still plans to add more features to the WWE Network.

1Wrestling.com’s Bill Apter mentioned this week on his Facebook that he was brought in by the WWE to cover several historical topics, saying “Spent a quality day at WWE Network studio yesterday being interviewed (general historical stuff) for several shows! A lot of you have commented on the shows I have already been on and I really appreciate your support more than I can say!”

  • Hulk Hogan publicly stated that he’s training to wrestle “one last match” with John Cena.

It is not uncommon for WWE to bring back veterans and have them wrestle. What is uncommon is seeing older talent wrestle when they clearly do not have it anymore. WWE tries to keep these people out of the ring as much as possible. While they may make an appearance in the ring and even take a spot or two, WWE does not like having them in there for anything other than comedy reasons.


According to the Wrestling Observer there is “talk of bringing back the combined Raw/SmackDown “supershow” tapings next year. That doesn’t make a lot of sense considering the brand split is dead, but there you go.


  • Wrestling Observer gave a rundown from the August 2nd WWE Live Event in Lubbock, TX.
  • Bleacher Report has an article out about why a losing streak for Bo Dallas is a good thing.
  • Justin LaBar thinks fans need to understand why Daniel Bryan was left off the NBC Wrestlemania 30 special.

The NBC special isn’t for the hardcore WWE fans who already paid WWE to see it. The special is to draw in new viewers or viewers once lost. It makes no sense to showcase a guy who they might get interested in, but then turn on Monday Night RAW and can’t see.

  • Is WWE in trouble financially long-term?

  • One of my favorite Dudley Boyz moments from a time when Smackdown was actually relevant. Remember Right to Censor?
