hehehmn The problem with WWE news reports, backstage reports and news letters.

I love reading the various reports that are attributed to various sources. From backstage reports, to "unidentified sources" and the rumor mills, it is hard to depict what the "truth" really is?!

When do you finally believe a report or rumor?

The Ross report was taken off WWE.com a few months ago based on the idea that Vince McMahon (with suggestions by newer staff members) wanted to limit the injury reports and contract information. Offering more "bang to hype" when they premiered new wrestlers. The idea also helped disguise what was either about to happen in storylines, or what was scrapped at the last minute.

So with that in mind, and the shroud of secrets that has always followed the pro wrestling business (as far as characters, developement and storylines) what do YOU personally make of the publicized rumors and "inside scoops" that come out? Most importantly, how are these secret inside stories and reports obtained when the WWE is not like the NFL or NBA and there is no national and local press coverage, much less is any clown allowed backstage to write investigative type reports.

I think in a small sense you have answered your own question Pyscho...

Because the WWE is a much different entity than the sports corporations that are the NBA...NFL...And MLB...The broadcastin' of news is so much different as well...Because it is a pre-concieved sport...That in itself takes away from a little bit of the "News" buzz that is associated with the other sports...

Also...The WWE hypes its own events...Does its own reportin'...And really does not want the "Back stage" happenin's to be revealed because of the fact the kayfabe of the sport is monumental for its success...

Therefore...When there are "Inside Scoops"...Or "The Buzz Around The Locker Room"...Those are there because there is no real reportin' entity in the WWE....So what there is are rumours from sources like Meltzer and so on....

Personally, i believe about 10% of what I read. Most of that is stuff reported for several weeks and with generally updated info. ie, goldberg debut and signings, plane ride from hell, etc. As far as the "so-and-so-is-upset-with-manegment or whatever, I could care less. You just have to take it in stride.

But there is a lot of info out there and even assholes like boone get interviews with macho man. Just be cynical of what you read.

I guess there was not a real point. It was more a rhetorical question, and then asked "when do YOU believe the rumors....etc"

I do have one major point to make though. Everyone, please take note........

On of these magazines that report from The WWE, NWA-TNA , XPW and other freds should come out with their own syndicated show showing highlights and matches from each fed and then have people to confirm rumors....

^Most of them have internet radio shows you can download and listen to. They have interviews with all sorts of different wreslters. That's where a lot of the rumor shit starts. Go listen to the shows and find out from the source. Listen to RVD bitch and moan about his current status right from his mouth. Y2J shoots on berg and the incident. Stuff like that. Then it just gets spun up by internet ratings freaks and rewritten and hyped up.
