Barrett Picks 5 Star Match, Punk Comments on PG & Linda, More
– It should be noted that a lot of the advances for WWE’s current UK tour have been the lowest since anyone can remember. The Wrestling Observer reports that there are seven arenas that are considered “sister” arenas booked for this week and not one is sold out. Some are only about half-way sold out. Some tickets prices are being slashed for the rest of the tour.
– The WWE Classics “Five-Star Match of the Week” for this week was chosen by Wade Barrett. He picked Bret Hart vs. British Bulldog from SummerSlam 92. Barrett commented:
“[The Bulldog] was from just down the road from me, near Wigan. I’m from Preston, very close. He was my idol as a kid, so this was a great moment and great to have a pay-per-view like SummerSlam in the U.K. I hope we get that again one day.”
– WWE Champion CM Punk told fans on Twitter to stop talking about Linda McMahon’s failed Senate bid as it relates to the WWE PG era. Punk tweeted:
“Enough about the PG era and Linda. Nothing to do with one another. Stop living in the last. Eyes front, one foot in front of the other…”
