Never one to avoid controversy, Vince Russo has drawn the ire of the internet wrestling community yet again. The source of discontent stems from the fact that he took to social media to say that Sami Zayn, who made his debut on Monday Night Raw this week, was not a television star yet. He stated that while the hardcore fans might know of him, the masses just assumed that he was some jobber that was in the ring with John Cena.

Reports have surfaced that WWE did indeed hold a meeting backstage with all of the performers before they started taping Monday Night Raw.

The controversy surrounding Bill DeMott is causing some headaches for WWE. The allegations have now thrown a wrench into their plans for the upcoming season of Tough Enough.

Not that she was next in line to be called up to the main roster by WWE or anything, but it looks like Zahra Schreiber is going to have to wait a bit before she can start working on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. The belief is that management needs the controversy to fade away before they would consider putting her in front of the mainstream media again. The fact that Zahra can be seen naked might not sit too well with advertisers.

A little bit of controversy has arisen within the internet wrestling community, and it is all because of the performers that WWE chose to appear on their Wrestlemania poster this year.
