StarDust is born [June 16th, 2014]
After weeks of Cody Rhodes insisting that Goldust get a better partner, tonight on Raw, Goldust finally found that partner. For weeks, Goldust has attempted to gain victory with numerous superstars until finally picking up a win with his partner tonight, StarDust. Who… looks suspiciously like… Ace Perry.
I mean, Cody Rhodes.

Reminds me of Starman! (Pro Wrestling - NES)

Kevin Steen signs a WWE Contract [June 9th, 2014]
I don’t know how well-known this is, since for whatever reason, no one’s really talking about this. But, this is huge news. Kevin Steen has signed a WWE contract!

After speaking with WWE sources, WZ can confirm Kevin Steen has signed a deal with WWE. 
 The former Ring of Honor World Champion has been rumored to have been on WWE’s radar for quite sometime. We had previously reported that Steen was part of a try-out camp for WWE, but nothing more was known regarding the probability of him being signed. 
 He has now signed, and is expected to finish up his independent bookings and obligations. An exact time is unknown as to when he will report to the NXT Performance Center, but Steen is still advertised for independent shows through the month of June.

NXT is straight stacked. Exciting time to be a wrasslin’ fan.

The Ad Council’s Fatherhood campaign, being spearheaded by the WWE, is awesome. Kudos to Titus, Roman & Alberto for being involved in their kid’s lives. The fact they are on the road so often yet still take the time to be fathers to their children is a powerful statement to the fact that, regardless of the situation, there’s no real excuse to not step up and be a part of your children’s lives. Take 30 seconds to watch the Roman Reigns spot, posted here. It’s gold!

If Jack Swagger was the real American he claims to be he’d be throwing fists with Rusev.

I don’t care what any one says now. After everything I’ve seen Triple H do over the last 3 months on WWE TV I’m convinced he isn’t out to bury anyone in the WWE. The guy is interested only in doing what’s best for business.

I’m going to go one further. Not only does Triple H have what’s best for business in mind, but the WWE is better off for it. The company is in the best state it has been in creatively in years.

Waylon Mercy vs Jeff Hardy

Waylon Mercy was a strange guy, and that’s saying something. Planet WWF was an odd place at the time he made his debut in 1995. There was a trashman and a hog farmer, a clown and some men on missions, and even a blue blood. None of them compared to Waylon in creepiness though.

Although the Waylon Mercy character was based off of Robett DeNiro’s character from 1991’s Cape Fear, to me he seemed more like a psychopathic Forrest Gump.

I’ve heard Bray Wyatt compare to Waylon Mercy, but other than the fact both men could successfully form their own cult, I don’t see the connection. For one, Bray is lightyears ahead of Waylon on the stick. Secondly, I would say he’s also better inside the squared circle. Feel free to debate that one amongst yourselves!

After weeks of creepy vignettes, Waylon would make his debut on RAW in a match with a very young and unrecognizable Jeff Hardy. He tosses Hardy around like a rag doll. Fortunately for us, Waylon would fizzle out as quickly as he appeared, and perhaps strangest of all, the scrawny boy who took an ass whooping from him in this match would go on to become a World Heavyweight Champion.
