Kevin Owens posted a throwback photo of himself with Sami Zayn from their days in Ring Of Honor. Owens posted the following photo on his Instagram account after the show:
Last week, Austin Aries shared a nice post calling for unity in America. Interesting to note that he said that he was driving home from the WWE Performance Center. That line had some fans wondering if he was returning to the company. That could be a possibility but most likely, he was just dropping off his fiancee Thea Trinidad (known to NXT fans as Zelina Vega). Aries was released from his WWE contract in July.
Driving home from the #wwe #wweperformancecenter today, I saw the man in the middle of this photo trying to help the man on the left push his car off a busy road and back into a parking lot…with little success. Instead of driving by, as I and we all have, it struck me to stop to help. I quickly switched lanes while ending my conversation with my mom and pulled in to park. As I ran over to lend a hand, the man on the right of this picture also came over to help. The four of us quickly maneuvered the stalled car safely out of the way, into a parking space for the extremely grateful man on the left. As we went to go our separate ways, I looked at us four guys. I got the urge to grab my phone. I asked them if I could take a photo of us because with all the divisive s**t going on right now I wanted to snap a photo of what a truly great America looks like. When I saw those guys struggling, I didn't see Non-White guys, or a Buddhist, a Muslim, an immigrant, a democrat, a republican, a gay, a straight, a rich or a poor. I saw two humans that needed some help, and I had some to offer. When the fourth man ran over I imagine he saw the same. I mean look at this f**king picture?! Could you find any four different looking people from any different walks of life?! Yet we all came together, randomly and simply as good humans, to help one another. I've taken endless photos, in my career and in my life, but this one was special. We need to change something in our society. We need more hands reaching out intent on helping, encouraging, applauding, and joining together. And not just to hands of the same color, connected to people just like "us." Because no matter what is being propagated, "us" and "them" is really WE. And today this quartet, WE helped each other. WE spread love and togetherness, turning a difficult task for one into a simple task for four. The lesson is WE can accomplish so much more working together than we ever can being divided. And WE can quiet the aggressive and divisive messages we're being bombarded with by extending our hands out to each other. Actions do speak louder than words. Today us four showed WE ain't hearing that s**t. #bethechange #we #maga
As previously noted, AJ Styles was on Talking Smack after the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. He addressed Sami Zayn’s heel turn to help Kevin Owens. It certainly sounds like Styles will be getting involved with Kevin Owens and Zayn, perhaps, as Shane McMahon’s tag team partner.
I would like to recommend the recent Talk Is Jericho podcast with Dave Meltzer as the special guest. The podcast was released to coincide with the anniversary of the passing of Brian Pillman. Meltzer was close friends with Pillman and shared some interesting stories about him including behind-the-scenes details on how Pillman was able to trick WCW management into giving him a release so that he could play WCW and WWE against each other for a higher dollar contract offer. He talked about Pillman’s plan to handfuff himself to a goal post during the 1996 Super Bowl, Pillman’s dealings with Bill Watts, the humvee wreck, the pressure that Pillman put on himself to keep wrestling despite being in tremendous pain, and much more. The latest Talk Is Jericho is up now at podcastone.com.
