Weird - according to today's WrestleTalk video, rumor was that they'd already taped all the high profile matches / matches that needed more editing & production including Roman/Goldberg, Cean/Wyatt, AJ/Taker, etc.

Have to wonder if this will be what finally gets VKM over him. Vince doesn't accept sickness as much of a reason, this is the guy that gets made when people sneeze.

Story is Miz showed up sick and The USO's list their shit.  Reigns was at the building but refused to do the match and left.  Match is now Strowman vs Goldberg.

First he eats chicken in the locker room, now he shows up sick. Seriously though Vince should drop the hammer on Miz if he legit showed up infected.

Miz is the ultimate ass kissing company guy, he probably thought it would impress Vince to turn up with covid but still be willing to work.

I hope Goldberg squashes Braun in about four seconds. Fuck that guy after his stupid social media rants talking shit on people trying to support independent wrestlers who have lost work due to covid.

They said the WWE is testing people as soon as they come into the building.

I read somewhere that Lashley got tested and sent home. If someone can confirm this that would be great as I can't find the article now.

Fried, that is the reason Benoit banned Miz from the locker room for like six months.

That seems incredibly petty and I hope there is more to the story than that. It sounds so weird and stupid for grown men to be upset that another man is eating a piece of chicken. What a weird bunch of carnies.

Miz was eating fried chicken 'too close' to Benoit's bag. That is pretty much it. He has spoken about it in a bunch of interviews.

^Basically that.

Evil Uno from AEW posted this tweet about how due to CV, a lot of independent people were losing out on income - from wrestlers to artists to musicians and so on. So if we can, try to support them by buying their merch, supporting their patreons, etc. Someone then posted a similar sentiment (or maybe re-posted Evil Uno's or something) on Instagram.

Braun saw it on IG (where he posts under his real name) and started to go off, saying people were asking for gofundmes (which they weren't) and shit like "oh here we go with people asking for everyone else to pay their bills". He then went on with how if they couldn't pay their bills, maybe they should get different jobs. He then tried to make out as if that's what he did when he quit strongman because there was no $$$ in it.

It was a dick move by someone who, while he's definitely put in some time, has had a way easier road in the pro-wrestling world, and is pretty much only where he is because he's huge.

Besides - how is saying to support people who are losing money simply because they can't work because of a fucking pandemic considered a "handout"? It's not like these people quit going to work, were lazy, or whatever.

Lost all respect for him after that shit - especially when you've got guys like Rusev who is apparently offering to give away $thousands of his own money to help out people in the wrestling industry now out of work.
