In this episode of the WrestleTalk News, a backstage fight at Smackdown Live’s WWE Draft special, and Cesaro delivers a scathing shoot promo on the brand split…
Backstage Fight At WWE Draft!
Last night’s debut episode of Smackdown Live saw the brand split’s draft, where WWE’s stars were divvied up between Smackdown and Raw. But it seems the divisions started earlier than the live broadcast.
PWInsider is reporting that there was a backstage fight at Smackdown between Simon Gotch of The Vaudevillians and Sin Cara. There is no word yet on what the fight was over, only that it was at catering. So perhaps Simon Gotch took the last churro, or Sin Cara botched into the spaghetti bolognaise.
This isn’t the first time Sin Cara’s name has come up about backstage altercations. According to former WCW star Konnan, Sin Cara had a scuffle with Sheamus back in May 2014 over the Celtic Warrior demanding Sin Cara’s bed in the training area.
WWE’s brand split is causing a major upheaval in the wrestlers’ current travel arrangements, and many of the roster have reportedly been uncertain over where their future’s lie. In the case of Sin Cara and Simon Gotch’s backstage fight, perhaps this extra stress is spilling out into tension in the locker room. As we learned on Monday, Sin Cara’s tag team The Lucha Dragons is no more, with Kalisto going off alone, while Gotch had a lot to lose if his Vaudevillians was also broken up.
