– RAW Tag Team Champion Bobby Roode recently spoke with The Mirror in the UK and admitted the pressure is very much on in WWE as the Superstars vie to fill the limited number of TV hours that the company has to fill.
“It’s one of those things, everyone wants that opportunity to show what they can do,” Roode said. “But there are so many hours of television… I have been very fortunate to be at the forefront of that and be in storylines on Raw and Smackdown now. So it is competitive, but I think everybody has an understanding of how it works and how things are going – you have to be patient and stay positive. If you aren’t on TV one week, hopefully the next week you’ll have that opportunity to go out there, whether it be a five minute match or a backstage promo. You just have to make the best of every opportunity you get and hope something sticks.”
– The official Facebook page for WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham noted that he spent most of Tuesday in the emergency room with the early stages of pneumonia. The hope was that Graham would be sent home from the hospital on Tuesday night.
– We noted before how Titus O’Neil recently made Ebony’s Power 100 list for 2018. Titus tweeted the following and revealed how the magazine honored him with the feature and a plaque:
