The Authority Not Advertised for Any Upcoming WWE Television Appearances
Multiple sources are reporting that Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Vince McMahon are all currently not being advertised for any upcoming Raw or SmackDown television appearances. While WWE will be taping both programs next week in London, England, Triple H and Stephanie will still be backstage helping to run the show; however, they are not scheduled to appear on-screen.
According to a new report from The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE fan-favorite Sasha Banks was originally penciled in to leave WrestleMania 32 as the new WWE Women’s Champion until the decision was made to have a Triple Threat Match with Becky Lynch instead of just Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte Flair in a one-on-one match.
For right now, former WWE Divas Champion Natalya Neidhart will be booked as a top contender to Charlotte Flair’s Women’s Championship, although there’s no word on whether Natalya is being considered for a run with the Women’s Title.
As for Sasha Banks, look for her to challenge for the Women’s Championship at this year’sSummerSlam, most likely against Charlotte unless things change between now and SummerSlam
A New WWE Dress Code
WWE has amended the rules to their dress code policy for WWE talent which has been for a number of years “business casual” – it now includes “casual” on the basis that clothing worn is the Tapout brand athletic apparel. WWE owns part of Tapout and sees their stars promoting the brand as good business, according to The Wrestling Observer.
