Published 62 Comments

WWE fans, good day to you all.

We’ve got plenty of breaking information to get through today; some of it based on current superstars, some of it not. In any case, it’s better if we get right to it rather than waste any more time.

Watch the video above if you’re looking to be told the latest headlines. Read on below for some added details.

Maddox fired

Brad Maddox has been released from the WWE after appearing to slander the crowd at the SmackDown taping earlier this week.

Reports all concur that Maddox has indeed been let go by the organisation though the reason remains yet unconfirmed.

It’s rumoured that the 31-year-old’s decision to say ‘cocky pricks’ during a pre-match promo on Tuesday has cost him dearly, with chiefs of the organisation not happy with his terminology.

Maddox just can't catch a break:

Orton injury woes continue

In injury news, Randy Orton could be missing for as long as a year, according to new reports providing an update on his struggles.

It’s believed Orton might now require neck fusion surgery - don’t worry, that might not be half as dangerous as it sounds - which, along with his shoulder op, could leave him out for another 12 months.

We’ll have updates as and when we get them through.

For now, you'll have to make do with this:

La Sombra set for the big time?

To finish, we’ve got something of a curveball. It focuses on the man who the WWE could be grooming as their next top star, despite the fact many of you might not have heard of him.

Enter, La Sombra - real name Manuel Alfonso Andrade Oropeza - who is apparently turning heads at the WWE Performance Centre in Orlando.

The 26-year-old is being tipped by several sources to be the company’s next top latino star. Vince McMahon will certainly be hoping his introduction can boost the ailing ratings. Watch this space.
