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 27th, 2014 version of The WWE Morning Paper.
- WWE addressed Ryback being out of action.
- Mick Foley is dealing with a back injury that caused him to cancel his comedy show and may require surgery.

- Apparently, Kevin Steen may not be keeping his name when he starts wrestling in WWE NXT.
- The New Nation of Domination is still alive!
There was a dark match last night at the SmackDown tapings that featured Big E and Kofi Kingston teaming together against Slater Gator. Xavier Woods was ringside. In addition, E and Kofi were wearing matching tights. The New Nation isn’t dead yet.
- We have our WWE Main Event review out for last night’s show.
- Hulk Holland of Cageside Seats describes WWE’s “Ruthless Regression” following Monday’s terrible show (in this opinion of this writer).
I was going to start by calling yesterday’s (Aug. 25, 2014) episode of Monday Night Raw “hot garbage,” but I actually have hot garbage on my back deck (stupid summer) and I’m afraid to insult it, in fear of placebo-ing myself into thinking it smells worse.
There was a point when I was so bored, I flicked around and decided to check out Escape Plan, which is like an Expendables-flavored Ernest Goes To Jail, but that was even worse, so I went back and made the commitment, and was just as disappointed as I expected to be.
- Bleacher Report tries to figure out the next direction for Jack Swagger.
Admittedly, Jack Swagger’s overall feud with Rusev has been quite entertaining.
Swagger, already having a patriotic-heavy gimmick, was the perfect person to intercept the path of Rusev’s Russian-sympathizing dominance. Moreover, it surely helps that Swagger has a legendary mouthpiece in Zeb Colter, shooting witty ripostes to every demeaning statement tossed by Lana.
Despite this feud that led to a hard-hitting match at Battleground, where does Swagger go from here?
- Our own Mike Smith tells us why John Cena was booked correctly on Monday.

- It’s been about a year since Ryback has been relevant. Check out his heel turn in 2013 that ruined his career.
