Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Drew Gulak is back with WWE. Meltzer says that Gulak wasn't very interested in taking bookings during the week that he appeared to have left the company over a dispute over money. Since Gulak's contract expired the day after he wrestled Daniel Bryan on Smackdown, Gulak became an immediate free agent and could have appeared on any wrestling show he wanted, including AEW Double or Nothing. However, Gulak is back filming episodes of Smackdown and has signed a new deal with WWE.

Meltzer also said that Matt Riddle is heading to the main roster very soon and that his match with Timothy Thatcher on NXT this week, with Kurt Angle serving as special referee, could be the blow-off of that feud and the end of Riddle's NXT career, or at least, Meltzer says, will lead to it. Meltzer called Riddle's callup "imminent."

Britt Baker's boyfriend appeared at an AEW event yesterday. Adam Cole was spotted in the background of a photo from Tony Khan's Memorial Day party, which he attended with Baker. Wrestling Inc. has the photo, so go and look at this scandalous cross-promotional appearance.

Hopefully Hangman Page takes a shower before the eating commences. Run, Sammy, run!

Hangman Page Offers Those Not Wearing Masks A Dining Option

Finally, Hangman Page took to Twitter to reveal who exactly can eat his ass. The answer: people who refuse to wear coronavirus masks. Page tweeted: "I typically look for the good in people, but if you're refusing to wear a mask in public as some kinda act of defiance then you can eat my ass." It makes sense, because if you're wearing a mask, then how would you get your tongue into the… you know what, never mind.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
