Wrestling Revealed

Kamala

Kamala not underpaid

Earlier in the year, Kamala revealed that he was paid $13,000 for his Summerslam match in 1992 against the Undertaker, who was paid $500,000. He hinted that racism might have played a part in that. Those within WWE are said to have brushed off the comment, noting that one man was a much bigger draw than the other. It is not unusual for performers to be paid differently even though they are working together.

Vince McMahon

Summerslam in Las Vegas

Since the pay per view weekend was such as success, WWE has been touting how well Summerslam did in Brooklyn. You would figure that the company might want a repeat performance next year. Well, that is not the case. Vince McMahon is reportedly interested in moving the pay per view to Las Vegas, a city where people would gladly travel to for an event. There are also talks of taking things back to Los Angeles.

Michelle Rhodes at Summerslam

Since she wanted to be a part of something that her late husband had so much passion for, Michelle Rhodes decided to attend Summerslam this past weekend in Brooklyn. WWE was more than glad to host her since they want to do things right for Dusty Rhodes. Michelle also had the opportunity to watch her son, Cody Rhodes, working a high profile match against a celebrity in Stephen Amell.

Vince McMahon

WWE sells out Brooklyn

Even though Summerslam did not live up to the ridiculous amount of hype, Vince McMahon is beaming with pride right now. That is because he can boast to his shareholders that he was able to sell out the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for three straight nights. Accomplishments like that have a tendency to increase trust from investors. It also provides WWE with plenty of bragging rights.

Linda McMahon

Linda McMahon at Summerslam

For those of you that are wondering, Linda McMahon was indeed spotted at Summerslam. She was sitting in the audience with at least one family member. The former CEO of WWE has been around the company a bit more as of late. Much has been made about these appearances because Shane McMahon still refuses to attend the shows, even if it is a special occasion like Wrestlemania.

New Day

Shield vs New Day

Since they like to throw off fans, WWE has been teasing that Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns could be going after the tag team titles after their big victory at Summerslam. However, that seems unlikely to happen, as management is leery about putting Reigns across the ring from an act as popular as New Day has become. There is a fear that the fans will turn on Reigns even more in that scenario.

The longtime wrestling fan, though, proved everyone wrong. He did much better than expected. The Arrow star received praised from both the people backstage and the mainstream media.

After his brutal battle with Brock Lesnar at Summerslam, Undertaker collapsed on the way back to the locker room. He managed to make it back to the hotel without having to go to the hospital.

Sting coming back to Raw

Fans were disappointed that Sting did not show up at Summerslam, especially since he was in town during the week to meet fans and sign autographs. The former world heavyweight champion then took off to Chicago to make an appearance at Comic Con.
