In today’s WrestleTalk News, did WWE just accidentally leak who will be Smackdown’s General Manager when the brand split starts next week?! And the Pokemon Go! craze spreads to Titan Towers, where Vince McMahon himself is in training at WWE Headquarters.
Pokemon Goes WWE
Our top story today is whether WWE just leaked the new General Manager of Smackdown ahead of next week’s brand split announcements, but first, massive breaking news: Vince McMahon has Pokemon Go! – the smartphone version of the classic Nintendo game that everybody has right now.
‘Gotta catch ‘em all’ appears to mean more to the WWE chairman than just the company’s aggressive recruiting strategy for indie wrestlers at the moment. Zing. Vince tweeted a photo of a Ghastly from the WWE Headquarters gym with the caption:
“I don’t care who you are… Get OUT of my weight room!”
I’m not entirely sure Vince knows what either Pokemon or Twitter are, but that hasn’t stopped the whole WWE HQ in Stamford, Connecticut becoming a gym in the game where players can go to battle.
Other budding WWE superstar trainers include Tyler Breeze, who posted a photo of him discovering a Polywhirl on Dolph Ziggler’s knee, and Sasha Banks, who ran to the ring at a WWE live event recently after seeing a Jigglypuff she could catch.
If Pokemon’s popularity continues, expect Vince McMahon to debut Shinsuke Nakamura on Raw with a full-on trainer gimmick.
