Vince Rewrote All of Raw, WWE Interested in KUSHIDA, New NXT Hire

Vince McMahon

A lot has been made over this week's edition of Monday Night Raw, especially after the poorly received episode of the show from the week before. As usual, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon oversaw production of the show, but it has just been noted that McMahon also rewrote the entire program. According to the Wrestling Observer Radio program, McMahon rewrote the show just hours before the company went on the air with it. McMahon reportedly felt that the Texas crowd would be somber due to the recent death of US President George H.W. Bush. As a result, WWE dedicated the entire show to Bush, and most of the babyfaces on the show ended up standing tall over all of the heels.

WWE is said to be in the process of signing as much talent as the company can in time for January 2019. The promotion is looking as stars from just about everywhere in the world right now, including New Japan Pro Wrestling. WWE has supposedly offered deals to quite a few NJPW talents already, and Tetsuya Naito even claimed a while back that he turned down an offer from WWE not too long ago. In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was revealed that WWE now has its sights set on acquiring KUSHIDA. The IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion is said to be headed to NXT if he does join the company. It is unclear if the 35-year-old would be part of the regular NXT show, or if he would be used to help launch a potential NXT Japan show.

There is a brand new member of the announce team over on the NXT brand. Alicia Warrington took to Twitter earlier in the week to let her fans know that she has officially been hired by WWE. She is set to begin working as an announcer on the NXT brand, and it appears as though she will be going by the name Alicia Taylor once she makes her debut on the program. Warrington is a massive fan of the company, and she has even said before that she used to dream about being a wrestler when she was a child. Warrington is also a drummer who has played for Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Kelly Osborne, and several others. Expect to see Alicia Warrington on WWE programming regularly very soon.
