Well...another
pre-Wrestlemania week, and fans are talking about something
besides Wrestlemania.

For any of you who were hiking in the mountains and had no
access to social media or the Internet, you MAY have just
certain about a certain set of online videos, involving
Paige, current and former WWE talent, and the old WWE Diva's
belt. Her phone was stolen, then hacked, with another report
says Brad Maddox's also might have been within the last 2
weeks at an airport). All the photos and videos were put
online on a Reddit forum (nope, not listing or linking it
here). It's been said her videos is part of a larger
celebrity hack.

One involves Alberto Del Patron. Another involves Brad
Maddox. Another shows Paige and Xavier Woods together, while
Brad Maddox films their escapades. That particular video has
generated a lot of hilarious memes and comments about Woods
long-established YouTube video Up Up Down Down channel.

There is at least one rumor that The New Day will be kept
off RAW until Wrestlemania as a result of the latter video.

BAD move.

Tonight's RAW is in Brooklyn. The crowd...especially a New
York smarkie. This crowd will start in on it and go with it
all night, if the 900 pound elephant isn't dealt with. WWE
needs to build Wrestlemania. No matter how much WWE may
worry about sponsors, rule one of dealing with inconvenient
things: if there is a 900 pound elephant in the room, don't
just shove the elephant dung in the closet. Do that and
everyone just sniffs all night. Simple solution, tell people
about the elephant...and it can be done in a nice sponsor
friendly way.

Have The New Day come out at the beginning of RAW tonight.
Have Kofi ask Xavier Woods what HE did this weekend. He
dummies up. Then ask Xavier if he did anything that would
make Francesca jealous. Let Big E. gives that sly look he
does sometimes. Michael Cole can then throw in that Woods
emceed a SXSW Gaming Awards this weekend. The live crowd can
get a laugh. People can post about it on social media. Then
it'll be done with...and everyone can move to building
Wrestlemania.

Meanwhile, there are those who are upset because Paige used
the WWE Divas belt in one of these videos. A few old school
workers are upset that non-workers don't understand.

I look at it this way: when Vince McMahon doesn't even let
announcers refer to a belt as a belt, when HHH and Stephanie
have commented online (anytime that fans are upset about a
particular title change) that the belt/title is just a
"prop", when they've had Mae Young get pregnant by Mark
Henry, and then give birth to a plastic hand, when they've
had Vince McMahon call himself "God" on air...pardon me if I
don't get that upset. Back in the day, God knows how much
coke was snorted off of one of the versions of the belts.
Simply watching what used to happen after NWA/WCW shows at
the Philadelphia Marriott, God knows what happened with
NWA/WCW's...let alone what I saw post-ECW shows,and what I
didn't see..

Next week...hopefully...Wrestlemania.
