Update on Monday Night Wars on Network

WWE has been discussing the idea of running the much anticipated Monday Night Wars series on Thursday nights, as a lead in to NXT. The show would premiere after the Total Divas replays finish.

WWE Talents Told to be More Aggressive

The increase in eye poke injuries in WWE might be linked to officials recently urging talents to be more aggressive during their bouts.

This has resulted in many talents rushing their matches, which has lead to more eye pokes, potato shots, black eyes and even concussions.

Talents have also been tinkering with barely missing strikes, and have been throwing them harder and faster and attempting to just miss, but off-timing has lead to an increase injuries.
