– As seen on this week’s WWE 205 Live episode from New Orleans, Cedric Alexander defeated Ariya Daivari in the opening match. Noam Dar and Alicia Fox continued taunting Cedric as Fox appeared on the big screen towards the end of the match while Dar talked to her via FaceTime, promising he was going to get Cedric. The distraction back-fired as Cedric hit Dar with a baseball slide while Alicia was running her mouth. Cedric then kicked out of a pin attempt by Daivari and hit the Lumbar Check for the win. The segment ended with Cedric grabbing Dar’s phone and hanging up on Fox.
In the video below, Dar takes another FaceTime call from Fox but avoids a lecture as he says he has to go to the trainer’s room to get his lip checked out. Dar tells the WWE reporter that he’s too young to deal with this drama. He also tells the reporter not to tell Fox that he was headed to Bourbon Street to let off some steam.
– WWE officials are planning on doing a match between Triple H and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle in the near future, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio. No word yet on when the match will take place or how they will get there but it could have something to do with the storyline WWE has been doing with Angle and Corey Graves. RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon should be returning to TV soon to work with her new RAW General Manager. Stephanie has been off TV since WrestleMania 33 and Angle was named GM the next night on RAW.
– Some of our readers may remember a writer by the name of Shawn Moniz. Shawn, a lifelong fan in his early 30’s, wrote for the “IWC (Internet Wrestling Community)” and webmastered his own websites for years, and is genuinely one of the nicest guys on the planet. Those who know Shawn agree that he’s one of the real good guys of the world and that you really can’t find one person to say anything bad about him. Shawn was recently admitted to hospice care after a battle with stage 4 lung cancer. A few of his friends are raising funds to give Shawn a special wrestling-related weekend here soon and to help the family with expenses. You can donate to the campaign on Indiegogo’s Generosity platform at this link. You can also e-mail Shawn your well-wishes or letters to tmarc.middleton [at] gmail [dot] com with “For Shawn Moniz” as the subject. The letters will be sent to Shawn’s family to print & read, or they will be delivered to Shawn by us in the next week or so.
