If you are someone like John Cena, The Undertaker or Triple H then you are probably set for life because WWE respects wrestlers that keep in line with the company message. Cena is on the verge of becoming Hollywood’s next breakout star. The Undertaker has been with the company since 1990 and, by all accounts, is never one to air his grievances publically and he doesn’t have a reputation of getting in trouble in real life. Triple H? Well, we all know that Triple H is safe. In fact, the belief is that he and wife Stephanie McMahon will take over WWE when Vince McMahon steps down or passes away.

There have been several wrestlers that have been blacklisted by WWE over the past several years. Some of them have been lower card wrestlers but there have also been some very prominent names that have been blacklisted for various reasons. Some were blacklisted for personal issues, behavior issues and a couple could be permanently blacklisted because of high-profile murder cases.

Here is our list of wrestlers that are considered to be blacklisted by WWE. In the case of those that are currently blacklisted, you might never hear these guys names used on WWE programming again.

Kurt Angle

Kurt Angle is the only professional wrestler to win an Olympic Gold Medal. Angle was signed by WWE in 1999, three years after he won the gold medal for the United States. He was skyrocketed as a top guy in the company but personal issues and injuries would get the better of him. He and WWE had a nasty split in 2006 after he was moved down to the ECW brand. Angle’s side claimed at the time that he chose to leave while people within WWE claimed that he was let go because the company was very concerned about his substance abuse issues. Angle signed with TNA Wrestling later that year and finished his run with them in early 2016.

Rumors have popped up about a possible return for Angle. Angle has expressed his desire to work with WWE again and he says that he is now clean and sober but WWE has been hesitant to work with him because, according to wrestling news sites, Vince McMahon is worried about Angle passing away while on his watch. If that happened, then it would be a huge black eye for WWE and the negative press would be at an all-time high. Hopefully, WWE and Angle will end up working together again.

Bethenny Frankel thanks fans for support after Dennis Shields' death

Bethenny Frankel is thanking fans for their support while she mourns the death of off-and-on boyfriend Dennis Shields.

Shields passed away a week ago after being found in his Trump Tower apartment. There aren’t many details available aside from a statement from the Office of Chief Medical Examiner of the City of New York: “The medical examiner’s office is investigating the death of a man believed to be Dennis Shields, found at the Trump Tower. The investigation is ongoing, and we will release cause and manner of death when completed.”

It’s a tough time for Frankel as she continues to battle her ex Jason Hoppy in a custody battle over their 8-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy.

Scott Disick and 18-year-old Sofia Richie get flirty in France

Published

on

Scott Disick has a new BFF, apparently. He was seen in Cannes over the weekend with 18-year old Sofia Richie. Some of Scott’s friends were there but there were plenty of photos that had people talking on social media. The reason for the trip was to celebrate Scott’s 34th birthday.

TMZ reported that they were super flirty. But Sofia says otherwise. According to her, there is nothing more there and they are “just homies.”

In one of the photos, it looks like she flashed him. Another photo shows them getting handsy on one of the decks. Keep in mind that Scott and 19-year-old actress flew with them to the South Of France but flew back home on her own because she was feeling ‘used’ and ‘humiliated,’ according to reports. In an Instagram post, Bella wrote, “Couldn’t be happier to be back home.”

Read Steve Harvey’s shocking memo to his staff: “Do not approach me”

Published

on

Steve Harvey is getting ready to leave Chicago for his new home in Los Angeles as he gets ready to start his new daytime show “Steve” but it doesn’t look like he is making friends on his way out.

An odd memo was published by Chicago blogger Robert Feder. The letter was apparently leaked by someone on Harvey’s staff and reads, “There will be no meetings in my dressing room. No stopping by or popping in. NO ONE.”

The letter also demands that employees must schedule an appointment to speak with him and calls for “all the ambushing to stop now.” It doesn’t end there. The letter also states, “Do not come to my dressing room unless invited. Do not open my dressing room door. IF YOU OPEN MY DOOR, EXPECT TO BE REMOVED.”

“I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me,” he wrote. The letter ends by explaining that this is for “the good of my personal life and enjoyment.”

Harvey has not publicly commented on the memo. Apparently, the memo got out to on the final day of taping for “The Steve Harvey Show” but it was sent out to employees months ago before the start of this fifth and final season. That show is ending as Harvey gets ready for the premiere of his new show “Steve” on September 5. According to reports, there is speculation that an ex-staffer leaked the letter who was not invited to be part of the crew for his new show.

Harvey has a lot on his plate. In addition to the new “Steve” daytime show, he hosts ABC’s “Celebrity Family Feud,” NBC’s “Little big Shots,” and he is pegged for Fox’s “Showtime at the Apollo” revival.

The full memo is below:

Good morning, everyone. Welcome back.

I’d like you all to review and adhere to the following notes and rules for Season 5 of my talk show.

There will be no meetings in my dressing room. No stopping by or popping in. NO ONE.

Do not come to my dressing room unless invited.

Do not open my dressing room door. IF YOU OPEN MY DOOR, EXPECT TO BE REMOVED.

My security team will stop everyone from standing at my door who have the intent to see or speak to me.

I want all the ambushing to stop now. That includes TV staff.

You must schedule an appointment.

I have been taken advantage of by my lenient policy in the past. This ends now. NO MORE.

Do not approach me while I’m in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly. Either knock or use the doorbell.

I am seeking more free time for me throughout the day.

Do not wait in any hallway to speak to me. I hate being ambushed. Please make an appointment.

I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me.

If you’re reading this, yes, I mean you.

Everyone, do not take offense to the new way of doing business. It is for the good of my personal life and enjoyment.

Thank you all,

Steve Harvey
