WWE Superstar Kane has been competing for the company for decades now, and he just recently made his return to Smackdown to reunite with Daniel Bryan to take on The Bludgeon Brothers at Extreme Rules on July 15th. Kane is also running for Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee at the moment, and his political opponent, Democratic candidate Linda Haney, recently criticized him for the choice to wrestle again. She told the Knoxville News Sentinel that “being an entertainer doesn’t make you a political figure.” During an interview with Newsweek, Kane responded to Haney by stating that he will still make occasional appearances in WWE if he gets elected this fall. Despite this, Kane promises that he is absolutely driven and focused on becoming the town’s next mayor.
Some of the best produced shows in the entire professional wrestling business are the events that are put together by WWE. Although there may be a few missteps every once in a while, WWE typically has some of the most sleek and seamless production elements anywhere when it comes to their shows. However, the latest Wrestling Observer Radio stated that a recent live event in Rapid City, South Dakota was a “disaster” with much of the original card being reshuffled and reorganized. The company was also completely surprised by the injuries suffered by Ruby Riott and Bray Wyatt last weekend, and those two events also called for changes. Despite this, the show itself was considered to be decent.
Plenty of noteworthy documentaries focusing on the wrestling business have been produced over the years, but a brand new one highlighting two immensely famous names from the past will be coming out soon. WWE Hall of Famers Bret Hart and “Superstar” Billy Graham will be appearing in a documentary called 350 Days, which will see the two wrestlers talking about their careers, their time on the road, and the toll that wrestling took on each of their personal lives. Tito Santana, Nikolai Volkoff, Paul Orndorff, Abdullah the Butcher, Wendi Richter, and several other wrestlers are confirmed to appear in the documentary as well. Fans interesting in seeing the film may do so this Thursday in select movie theaters nationwide through Fathom Events.
