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 5th, 2014 version of The WWE Morning Paper.
- This is what happened after Raw went off the air.
- Sheamus will be returning to action on WWE Superstars.
- With the news of Hulk Hogan being on next week’s Raw with “Surprise Special Guests,” we may see a pretty cool reunion.

- Apparently when Dean Ambrose stole JBL’s hat, it was “a rib” from Vince McMahon.
- There may still be a title unification at SummerSlam in less than two weeks.
Wrestle Zone reported just last night that WWE is still thinking of doing a title unification match with the Intercontinental and United States championship. If it happens, it will apparently be a triple threat match: Sheamus vs. The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler. Well, WWE announced late last night that Miz vs. Ziggler for the Intercontinental title is official for SummerSlam, so anything that happens, if it does, will be last minute.
- Here is my review of last night’s edition of WWE Raw.
- Jeff Hardy voiced his thoughts on a few topics.
“I hope in two years you’re still watching me on Spike every Thursday night,” Hardy said. “I love being on Spike. I hope they work something out in their negotiations. They use me for my talents and I show up and do the best that I can. It’s not up to me to make that decision, out of my control and I just hope for the best. Ultimately, I would love to remain on Spike.”
- Paul Heyman sat down with Between The Ropes for an interview yesterday.
- Bleacher Report posted an article on WWE’s poor announce team. I couldn’t agree more with the content.
Inconsistent energy, missed narrative opportunities and too much of a focus on one-liners are often hallmarks of the announce teams from Raw and SmackDown. Michael Cole, John “Bradshaw” Layfield and Jerry Lawler regularly underwhelm.
