    Yeah, Canadians really got the short end of the stick in WWE... What happened to Bret had nothing to do with him being Canadian (well actually it did, but different context).

    Ironically Jericho is from like Jersey.

    Well now I never blame anyone from pretending Jersey isn't a place.

    No this dude did not mention Christian... That man had to go carry another company as its flagship wrestler in order for Vince to even slightly respect him.

    Edge and Jericho I'll give you, but those dudes got Rock-like charisma... Not even Vince would be myopic enough to not push them.

    Even with Christian's shaky respect, he still had a great career in WWE.

    Correlation is not causation. It's like people who say that Japanese Wrestlers should never go to WWE because they've never been top guys. Well sure, but have you looked at the Japanese wrestlers they actually employed? Which one of them prior to Nakamura should've been?

    Would you really rep Moose Land in a Vince McMahon ring, seeing how he's treated your fellow syrup heads?

    Trish was only as successful as she was because the cowboy hat fooled Vince into thinking she was from Texas.

    Hell, Jinder only has the strap because he thinks he's a native born Indian...

    Besides the obvious of jericho, edge, christian, trish, jinder.

    Canadians found a place in wwe all around the card

    Candice is from riverside. I dated her cousin. And went to pwg with candice before she got into wrestling. Joey Ryan perved on her back then.

    Speaking of Candice, any chance they're gonna let her keep the Ballsplex? Actually, any chance they're gonna let her do mixed matches?

    No he's not. He was born in New York but moved to Winnipeg when his dad retired from the New York Rangers.

    Kevin Owens is from Canada and is doing well for himself.

    Apparently WWE have cancelled Talking Smack as a weekly series. Now it will only be after PPV's like RAW talk.

    Talking smack was a platform for talent to deliver promos and build character without vince/dunn restrictions

    Usos, Breezango, Corbin, Miz, KO and more have used talking smack to get their characters through

    I would be down for wwe dads replacing it

    They can do 205live before sd then do talking smack segments while sd is taping.

    But hey wrestlers like corbin cutting non corny promos? Wwe don't want you over until they say you are over. Even though corbin is mr mitb

    Who's the favorite to win the Mae Young Classic? Kairi Sane will be on the final 4 for sure. She and Candice has the best shot at taking it.

    Ross and Lita even said Kairi is the current favorite to win. She will likely make it into the finals against whoever.

    So it seems both Enzo and Cass are in hot water backstage, for different reasons....Cass is a Trump supporter, and Enzo apparently is a little shit backstage ala Simon Gotch and even got kicked out of the talent bus by Roman Reigns.

    Sanada's TNA run actually wasn't bad, he was actually positioned higher on the card in TNA then he is in NJPW.
    Right now maybe, If all goes well I'm pretty sure they're going to start giving him more of a singles push starting with the G1. He'll probably score pretty well and I think he's going to go over either Okada or Omega, (maybe Suzuki but probably not) during the tournament to grant him a title shot at one of the major shows prior to Wrestle Kingdom.

    So apparently Talking Smack was cancelled because Vince was unhappy with the show and strongly believed "it did not serve the company’s best interests". He couldn't digest the unscripted part and they gonna kill the show altogether eventually.

    Guess, Shane drinking moonshine on TS didn't gel with Vince.

    Slow down Vince, please.

    It's a lie. If that were TRULY the case, it would've been 100% cancelled rather than just relegated to after PPVs.

    So the reason Talking Smack was cancelled came out, Vince didn't like its unscripted format and thought it was bad for the overall product. So because people could get themselves over cutting their own promos and not relying on shitty hollywood writers.

    Yeah, it survived till now because Vince never noticed it. TS needed that JTG luck.

    On its numbers:
    Last week, Talking Smack was #18 of the most watched shows on the WWE Network. It should be noted that the show still often beat 205 Live. While Talking Smack was #18 last week, 205 Live didn't crack the top 20.
