Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

Paul Heyman did it once, in Chicago of course.

I know his appearances sans Brock are limited - and the heat he gets coming out without a theme is hugely effective - but it wouldn't have been the worst idea in the world to have Heyman keep using Cult of Personality. The song suits him more than anyone, and it'd be a great troll tactic. 

This is total internet booking, but I'd honestly dig Punk's return being Heyman coming out to it repeatedly, fucking everyone off, only to have the real McCoy eventually show up once Heyman's already in the ring or using his old Killswitch Engage theme.

Terrible idea.

Although that does remind me of how conflicted I was about Punk switching his theme when he returned with the belt. I know it added to the confusion of the scenario etc but I don't know. Part of me just really wanted that huge pop when his familiar music hit. Obviously now he's far more associated with Cult so there's no way he should be using anything else now.

The main reason I'd like to see a Punk return is just for the pop when that music hits. Rick's Corbin idea would be class though or have them have a heel come out to "Cult Of Personality" for the real deal to appear behind them in the entrance way. Might reduce the reaction though.

We all know that realistically if it happens they'll spoil their own surprise with some "AS ANNOUNCED EARLIER ON ESPN" Twitter post or something.

Anything different is good. Remember when they were absolutely obsessed with that [pop when the music hit so everyone had some sort of noise that preceeded their music. Like booker's "Can You Dig It?" soundbyte. When you look back now, you get pops when the music hits, another pop when the guy appears, another pop when he hits the ring. You get a guy coming out 5 times on one show and getting a huge pop each time. You don't know what you've got til it's gone.

The biggest miss ever was not sending Bad News Barrett out at 30 in the Daniel Bryan Rumble.

"I know you were expecting Daniel Bryan . . . but I've got some BAD NEWS" would have been amazing.

MLW has released Teddy Hart. You know how hard it is to be released from MLW? They have Konnan, La Park, ACH, Low Ki, TJP and every other trouble maker or potential nutcase under the one banner.

God help whoever comes out as number 30 at the Rumble when the crowd are expecting Punk. It will be Rey Mysterio / Daniel Bryan all over again. 

They could always have Seth come out at number 30. Proper trolling. Then could have Punk come out behind him and take him out for the big pop. There is your Mania match.

I remember when coming out at number 30 in the Rumble was a big deal. Nia Jax was number 30 this year. That's a pretty clear message from WWE that we're not to put much stock in that anymore.

Yeah. Bit of a punch in the face.

He got taken off TV because of allegations he had something to do with a former girlfriend not being seen on planet earth since 2016. I imagine this vlog he's doing where he's obviously smacked off his tits every second of it was the last straw.
