WWE News: Backlash Continues Around The Usos Mentioning Paige Scandal

The fallouts from last week’s Smackdown are still continuing, big time. A rap battle was contested between The Usos and The New Day. The American rapper, Wale was present on the show to host the contest between the two teams who will lock horns at the Battleground PPV for the tag team championships. Many considered the segment as one of the bests in recent memories as the way it has gone down.

Besides this, The Usos dragged the scandal between Xavier Woods and Paige mentioning it indirectly on live television which was a bombshell. Being a PG company, WWE has never addressed the leaked media contents featuring those two WWE Superstars, ever. So, quite expectedly the IWC was discussing whether it was scripted or not.

Now, Mega Ran who was also present during the rap battle and considered as a friend of Xavier Woods revealed that the Usos has never shown their lyrics script to the New day prior to the show, at backstage. So, the Unicorns had no idea of the pipe-bomb that was about to hit them on live television.

The rapper continued saying that once the final script was given to both the teams, The Usos asked whether he can use the Paige reference on Gorilla Position. That was approved at the very last moment when they were heading to the ring. So, Woods did not know that his personal history will be used during the rap battle. Check out his words, here:

“For everybody who’s asking me, I did not write rhymes, I just kinda sat and listened. I helped them with their deliveries and getting down the cadence and stuff.”

In the meantime, the next episode of Smackdown Live will be hosted by in San Antonio, Texas which is the home town of Paige’s fiancée, Alberto Del Rio. The former Divas Champion also resides with Del Rio, here. So, the current GFW champion sent an open challenge to Triple H and the Usos for insulting his girlfriend on live television.


A post shared by Alberto El Patron (@prideofmexico) on Jul 8, 2017 at 2:31pm PDT

In a post on Instagram, he invited the COO of WWE and the Smackdown tag team champions to come and see him at his restaurant. He provided the details of the venue with the timing, as well. This is not the first time that Del Rio went on a rant against The Game for misusing Paige in the WWE. You can check out the post as given above.


WWE News: Paige-Xavier Woods Controversy Mentioned On Live Television

In the month of May, the series of incidents of WWE Superstars’ private pictures getting leaked on the internet started. It began with the most controversial female figure in the WWE, Paige. The pro-wrestling industry was shocked with the viral pictures and videos of the British Diva where she was seen in several compromising and adult contents.

Alongside, in a couple of footage, we have spotted two other WWE personalities. The first one was former WWE Raw General Manager, Brad Maddox and the other one was one-third of The New Day, Xavier Woods. These two were spotted having fun with Paige in several compromising positions.

Since WWE does not tolerate these types of violent contents on the web, it was thought that they might take some actions against Woods and Paige who are still WWE employees. But, no official statement was released from the company regarding this.

The only thing that might have saved them was that the contents were stolen without their consent. They have not done anything intentionally and WWE finalised not to take any step after a secret meeting over the matter.

It was obviously not addressed on live television, ever to protect Woods and Paige’s past incidents until now as a Rap face-off segment was hosted on Smackdown Live. The Usos confronted The New Day with the celebrity host Wale judging the contest.

The rap-off turned out to be a personal one with all the members taking jabs on each other. At one point, The Usos stated the following which was literally a pipe-bomb considering the family-oriented programming that WWE is:

“Yo Big E, let’s just keep it PG, you know what’s good/Just don’t get all Rated-R like your boy, Xavier Woods.”

It was a clear shot taken to the loud mouth Xavier for his adultery actions with Paige. But, it is unlikely that this line was scripted by the show writers. Rather, they always try to keep the programming PG as much as possible.

So, this might be done by the Usos which does not have any connection with the creative planning. We can only hope that the Smackdown tag team champions do not suffer any consequences due to their actions.


WWE News: Big Planning For The Tag Team Division On Smackdown

The only division that has been suffering a lagging ever since the brand-spilt took place is the Smackdown tag team division. At the very beginning, WWE creative managed to bring the best out of it with a brand new champion, Heath Slater & Rhyno. Later, the Wyatt family was inserted into it to give it a big momentum.

However, the momentum changed with American Alpha and The Usos becoming the headliners of the division and failing miserably. No proper planning was reserved for them.

As a result, the Smackdown tag team championship was the only one title that was not defended at this year’s Wrestlemania.

Fans gave negative reaction over this incident with WWE caring less for this part on the blue brand. However, the Superstar Shakeup happened for the betterment of the tag team division.

The arrival of the New Day on this brand was for the same purpose. Although they have not arrived at the show, they are scheduled to make a big impact upon their debut.

As per the reports from Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The New Day is scheduled to start a major feud against the Usos over the tag team title upon their arrival. Both these teams are veterans in the tag division. So, the creative is arranging to make it a high-profile one.

There are also some great plans have in store for the Colons. After the disastrous Shining Stars gimmick, Primo and Epico needed a drastic makeover which they received after coming to Smackdown Live. This is a fresh start for them.

They are supposed to receive a major push on the show and will start a long-term feud with the American Alpha. The later one is one of the most incredible talents present in the locker room but was lacking proper opponents to prove their supremacy.

This time, they will get it with the arrival o Primo and Epico on the division.

Apparently, these two feuds should bring the attention back to the Smackdown tag team division.  The presence of the longest reigning tag champs will itself do the wonder.

However, there’s no confirmation as of when we can expect to see their arrival on the Tuesday Night show.


WWE News: Backstage Planning Around The New Day After Being Shifted To Smackdown Live

Smackdown Live has received one of the biggest shifts on their brand, with The New Day coming in there. There were lacklustre in the tag team division on the blue brand for quite sometimes and the inclusion of the unicorns is supposed to help a lot.

The longest reigning tag team champions of all time might seek some more title runs, going forward.
The move was praised by various WWE legends like Jim Ross. In a report from, the legendary commentator stated that it was a right choice taken by the creative team since it will add more depth to the tag team division of the blue brand.

Plus, the American Alpha was supposed to be the face of the division ever since they joined Smackdown Live around WWE Draft. But, lack of planning ruined their momentum, completely. WWE tried to bring a twist in the tale by handing the titles to The Usos just before Wrestlemania but that did not help, either. As a result, the Smackdown tag team championship remained the only belt without being defended on the show.

Now, as per the latest reports, The New Day might not show up on television from next week onwards. reported that the creative plans to hold their appearance until Kofi Kingston is fully fit to perform again.

In case you have missed, Kofi has suffered a ruptured ankle following the attack of The Revival on the post-Wrestlemania episode of Monday Night Raw. Previously, we thought that it was kayfabe injury but later he had to undergo a surgery. He might miss two or three months of televised programming due to this legit injury.

It is indeed sad news for the fans of Smackdown Live since there are already void in the tag division. The feud between American Alpha and The Usos has been stretched far long and that too without a sparkle, whatsoever.
Primarily, it was thought that the next challenger for The Usos is going to be The New Day. Considering their mic work it was supposed to be an interesting rivalry. But, we have to wait for some indefinite time to see this one.
