The WWE Morning Paper: Smackdown, SummerSlam, TNA

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 7th, 2014 version of The WWE Morning Paper.


  • So the stipulation for the Dean Ambrose-Seth Rollins SummerSlam match has been set (spoiler inside). The overall reaction has been that everyone is surprised. We’ll discuss it more this weekend once the Smackdown tapings air.
  • Lords of Pain has some Ric Flair news for us.

Ric Flair’s recent segment on RAW with Renee Young was almost entirely scripted, word for word, so the bits with Flair flirting with Renee were what the WWE writers wanted out of the segment. The only ad-lib line was Flair talking about what he had done in Richmond, telling the fans to “ask your mothers and fathers.”


  • Still no signs of anything positive for TNA.

There is, apparently, panic at TNA at the ongoing NYC Impact tapings because not only has the company failed to notify the wrestlers of the good news that was reportedly promised them, no one has been notified of anything. The talent were apparently told the failure to renew with Spike TV was a lie and to wait for good news at this set of tapings. So far, there’s been no news at all. You know what they say about that.


  • You have to feel a little bad for Ryback here.
  • Sebastian Maldonado tells us why Sami Zayn should not be the next NXT Champion.

Sami Zayn is a dynamic force on the WWE’s NXT programming. The athletic WWE Superstar makes the most of his matches with high-flying maneuvers mixed with incredible cutting-edge wrestling, never producing a bad encounter.

  • Last year’s SummerSlam was the first match for Bray Wyatt. Here is when he debuted a month before that.
