As you might have noticed by all the red carpets and Meryl Streep speeches around at the moment, it’s awards season. So here’s a WrestleTalk award for Best Social Media Post of the Weekend, which goes to…Kevin Owens, in reply to Goldberg saying he’ll win KO’s Universal Title at WWE Fastlane:

No, there’s a mistake. MissyTheTattooedGirl, you won Best Social Media Post.
You had one job…
MissyTheTattooedGirl posted screenshots on Instagram over the weekend allegedly exposing her rather kinky conversation with WWE commentator Tom Phillips, which claim Smackdown’s fourth man said: “I’m in my seat with a massive erection. And a 4 hours flight ahead. I’m going to face f*** the s*** out of you.”
And you thought chivalry was dead.
MissyTheTattooedGirl shared this private conversation because she found out Phillips is actually engaged. Although these could just be wild allegations, both her and Todd, Tom, Phillipe, whatever his name is, have since changed their Instagram accounts to private.
They might not be the only ones trying to back out of something teased on social media.
There was a rumor going around last week, as reported by CageSideSeats, that the planned Big Show vs Shaquille O’Neal match for Wrestlemania 33 was in doubt. The two have been calling each other out on social media for the last several months.
Big Show has since said to WWE.com:
“I mean, here’s the thing. We shot this off at the ESPY Awards, Shaq said he’s in, I thought this would be a good match for fans to see two giants go at it. And I see Shaq riding around, singing karaoke and stopping in at Krispy Kreme. I’m like, “Hey! If you’re not gonna take it serious, find something else to do!” I’ve given 22 years of my blood, sweat and tears to this business and I’m doing this favor to Shaq. This could be my last WrestleMania. He needs to step up.
…right now? I just get the feeling he’s terrified. He shot his mouth off, he’s in over his head and he’s trying to back out. So just let me know what’s going on, brother.”
Bizarrely, WWE.com isn’t the best for genuine news. They build up the fictional stories as much as the television programmes. If they’re interviewing Big Show about his Shaq match possibly being off, then it’s most likely them trying to build anticipation for the eventual fight. It’s nothing more than a pre-match promo.
But, then again, maybe not.
CageSideSeats’ rumor section is now reporting that WWE are uncertain whether Shaq will be working at Wrestlemania 33, and that’s why Big Show has been so vocal on social media and when talking to the press. They’re hoping it’ll get Shaq to agree to the match.
Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Drew Galloway has announced on Twitter that he won’t be resigning with Impact Wrestling and that he’s leaving the promotion.
Thank you @IMPACTWRESTLING for these past two years & everything we achieved together. I’ll miss everyone & I’ll see you down that long road
— Drew Galloway (@GallowaySpeaks) February 27, 2017
PWInsider are reporting that Galloway had been in talks to resign, but “the company did not attempt to get a new deal finalized until the last two weeks or so” which although “made him a nice offer with the promise of being one of the top stars in company…may have been too little, too late.”
Impact Wrestling has undergone a backstage upheaval over the last month, with Jeff Jarrett being brought back in by the new owners as TNA’s Executive Producer. This could be one reason why it took so long for the company to come up with an offer for Galloway.
PWInsider continue that Galloway might not be the only talent leaving TNA this week, as Matt and Jeff Hardy have also still not officially resigned. Their deals expire this week.
Impact begin their next set of TV tapings on Thursday, so both sides better sort something out quickly.
