So, if you’re any part of wrestling communities online, it was pretty hard to avoid something this weekend, and that was the discussion surrounding leaked photographs and videos of Paige. To give you warning, this will discuss who else is apparently part of these images, so it would be best to avoid reading if you don’t want to know and haven’t already found out thanks to the wonders of the internet and their inability to keep quiet about things.
I know I’ve been a bit absent with the round-ups of late, but let’s get stuck into today!
Hey, y’all! TakeOver: Brooklyn is on Saturday and so it’s time for me to do some quick predictions! My sister, Casriath, is going to be predicting with me. She’s not a wrestling fan, but she is long-suffering, so she’s been watching NXT with me for the past few weeks. Heads up: she’s a legitimate attorney, so she’s being the devil’s advocate today.
In our main event tonight, the man who does not get hyped looks to instead get murdered by Samoa Joe tonight – erm. I mean, Mojo Rawley is apparently looking for “revenge”. Yeah, that’s gonna work out in his favor. Has he cleared this with Zack? Considering Emma’s out injured, I don’t think Zack’s a fan of Mojo getting injured either.
Another big week in the wrestling world this week! Let’s get to it!
I’m going to publicly shame all the men I’ve spoken to recently who didn’t want the women to be split when the brands came apart: Dan, who I work with at the gym; Jordan, who writes for us here, and generally has a better track record than this with feminism; Sean, who’s married to Jess who writes for us here; the boys at WhatCulture. There’s a word for all of you, and it starts with a C and isn’t allowed in polite company.
The Sunday Round-Up is again upon us! And what a week it has been.

Hello again wrestling fans, Jordan here, and after a few weeks away, I’m back with another edition of The Salt Mine. This week I would like to talk about the idea of what is accepted in wrestling, in 2016, to do with your female talent.
We’re doing something a little different this week – myself, Jess and Jordan got our brains together and answered some questions about the upcoming WWE draft on July 19th! We’ve got some same opinions, some different ones, and some instances where our opinions are the same but for different reasons! Let us know who you agree with most!
