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 »

Today, Monday Night Raw is WWE’s flagship program and a constant showcase for the promotion’s biggest rivalries and non-ppv matches. The show runs for 3 hours each week, but that wasn’t always the way things were for Vince McMahon’s brightest idea of 1993.
Upon its debut on January 11 ’93, Monday Night Raw was a one hour programme, no different in time scale to much of the federation’s other TV output. There was just one difference – Raw seemed a little more lively compared to Wrestling Challenge or WWF Superstars.
Those long-running syndicated shows had become terribly stale, featuring endless runs of squash matches. Monday Night Raw was supposed to represent something different. Whilst the show did feature enhancement talent to begin with, it quickly evolved into showcasing competitive matches between top stars, such as Ric Flair facing Mr. Perfect on the January 25 episode.
