- The Coach reflects on working with The Rock during The Attitude Era
Even though Smackdown was taped @TheRock ALWAYS did our segments live for the crowd interaction. He didn’t even flinch while the producer was SCREAMING in my ear to put the wire back in the microphone. So much fun with him. https://t.co/ncxQWtERQq— Jonathan Coachman (@TheCoachrules) October 24, 2021
- Jessika Carr, WWE referee reflects on her journey to stardom.
What a week; I’m so incredibly grateful.— Jessika Carr (@WWELadyRefJess) October 23, 2021
It’s funny because all I ever dreamt of was to “be somebody” and more than ever do I realize what’s more important is the respect from my peers and people dear to me. Thank you all for your support. Let’s keep working. #SmackDown

- CM Punk appeared after AEW Dynamite with the Vlog Crew
"He's got the genes for it. He's been in and around the wrestling business all his life. He's kind of got the vibe of it. I've heard some of his interviews, and he's not bad. A little more experience and he could be good," Dutch Mantell said on the latest episode of Sportskeeda Wrestling's Smack Talk.
- Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, EC3 talked his new character and WWE dropping the ball with him.
"I pitched the whole character that this started as. I pitched it verbally, written, and then I filmed the promo that I released on the day I was fired, because I sent it to them on the day I was fired. So I was like I cut this great promo and I cut my hair. No matter what happened, I didn't want people to think that I didn't try. There was a time and I didn't care and I wasn't trying, but that's not me. I'd rather go down swinging than be shot. But yes, that was pitched along with an underground fight club essence to it. Then I'm released and 90 days later I have my match, which took place in a dimly lit underground looking garage. Obviously it is Fight Club inspired. But then a week later they start Raw Underground, so I guess they found my pitch in the trash."
Where he feels WWE dropped the ball with him:
"I think just the first segment where I come out and didn't speak. I just let [Dean] Ambrose jab me a bit, it's fun and whatever. He shouldn't have been a babyface, but he had that great run with the company and now he is leaving, so people are cheering for him. I think the debut had no purpose. They called up a bunch of people in a rash decision, and I think they could have lived or died on their own, they didn't need a bunch. But it doesn't matter, there's no point to any of it. On my end, dropping the ball was not doing anything to make them give it to me. I tried a few things, one thing I promised myself when I got there was I will never be that guy who is miserable and it doesn't matter. And I became it, and that's on me. But maybe it happened for a reason."
