The WWE RAW brand PPV which is currently scheduled for Tuesday, October 19th, will be titled "Taboo Tuesday" and will take place in Milwaukee, Wisconson.
Cable subscribers were sent out a mailer which listed the WWE PPV schedule for the rest of the year. Taboo Tuesday will take place only 15 days following Smackdown's No Mercy PPV in East Rutherford, New Jersey. No Mercy was scheduled to be at the MCI Center in in Washington DC (which I was going to go to since I live about 20 minutes from the MCI Center DAMN!!!!) But it was changed last week.
WWE brought back the old WCW Great American Bash PPV as their extra Smackdown! PPV event back in June, and Taboo Tuesday will be the extra RAW PPV, taking place on a Tuesday night.
Sable, Will she get in trouble for this???
Sable Shoots Hard On WWE, Calls Wrestling Sexist
Even though she remains an employee of the company, In fact a very active WWE Superstar on TV and house shows, Rena "Sable" Mero showed no restraint when making candid comments about WWE to the Fort-Wayne Journal Gazette. Highlights and excerpts from the article are below:
- Sable claims that the most gifted female wrestlers are passed up because they don't look a certain way, while men are hired on talent.
Men arent hired on looks, she says. Some of the most talented women are not blonde-haired, blue-eyed women.
- I love being sexy, she says. But I also want to be thought of as an intelligent woman. She feels that the female wrestlers are held to a higher performing and moral standard than male wrestlers.
"The men in this business are able to have families because they have wives who stay home. The women have to choose. There are more difficulties as a woman. There are more sacrifices we make.
- There were also remarks about the few women that work in the managerial part of WWE, even though Sable feels there are plenty of women who know as much about wrestling as men.
Sable says that she and Brock Lesner are still in a relationship, even though he is in Minn. in training camp with the Vikings and she on the road 4 days a week with the WWE.
