Mike “Super Nova” Bucci First Casuality Of Steroid Scandal

Published

on

According to PwInsider.com, WWE talent executive Mike “Simon Dean” Bucci was released today by WWE from his post in talent relations. Bucci was largely the manager for the developmental territories, leaving his career as an active wrestler to take the management position. The word among the wrestlers is that Bucci was called in for a meeting today by WWE in the wake of his name being mentioned by the The New York Daily News yesterday as being someone on the list of workers named in the Signature Pharmacy growth enhancing drug scandal.

Talk about the WWE making a move to show they are “tough on drug abuse”. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that among everyone on the list of wrestlers that got drugs from Signature, that besides Funaki, Bucci was the most expendable one on this list. This is a pathetic move by the WWE. This isn’t the first time Edge’s name has been associated with steroids, but is he going to be fired. No, he draws too much money for the company, so he will probably just get a 30 suspension without pay. But I would think the WWE would still use him on tv in a non-wrestling role without pay. Or what about Bautista, Mr. Kennedy or the returning Rey Mysterio Jr? Again they are draws for the company so look for a 30 day suspension without pay or nothing at all.

I hope congress sees through this move and takes the WWE and professional wrestling to the mat on the rampant drug abuse.

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw: Who won this week? March 19, 2019

Published

The Good

For Raw, the main event between Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre was a great match and ended the show on a good note. McIntyre won after a Brock Lesnar distraction, which helps give McIntyre more momentum into Wrestlemania for his match against Roman Reigns as he looks to beat everybody from the Shield. This segment also keeps building up the Universal Championship match as Lesnar gained the upper hand this week.

For Smackdown, the Kofi Kingston gauntlet match took up half of the show, and it was a overall solid series of events to help keep Kingston’s story moving forward. After Kingston thought he finally overcame everything that was put in front of him, Vince McMahon announced that he had one more match left, and it was against Daniel Bryan. Bryan ended up winning, which now leaves questions going into next week’s show and really is great considering this is all for the WWE Championship, which now has a more important feel to it.

The Bad

For Raw, they tried to make it a mystery as to who would be Finn Balor’s tag team partner against Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush, but the pick ended up being Braun Strowman, which could’ve been predicted. Along with that, this is a match we have seen more than once in the past few months, so it just felt like filler at this point. There is still questions as to what is in store for the Intercontinental Championship at Wrestlemania, which is not a good sign.

For Smackdown, the segment between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair on the Kevin Owens show might have taken out some of the strength of the build up for the Women’s Championship match between Rousey, Lynch, and Flair. We already know what we has happened between Lynch and Flair because they have been battling each other for the past seven months. This segment is just something we have already seen between these two, so it would’ve been better if more of the attention on this segment was focused on Ronda Rousey. 

The Final Verdict

Both brands are putting a majority of their show into Wrestlemania, which is how they should be. But, the overall delivery of the build up for these matches this week seem to be better on Raw this week. Batista’s interview, Brock Lesnar’s appearance, and a solid main event give Raw the better show this week. Both brands have been putting on entertaining shows for a majority of 2019, so lets hope that this continues for not just Wrestlemania, but all the PPV’s after.
