— Former WWE Cruiserweight and Tag Team Champion Paul London pulled no punches in a lengthy interview published in the latest issue of Power Slam as he candidly discussed his five-year run with World Wrestling Entertainment (which he calls “The Entertainers”), the wide array of characters he came into contact there, and much more.

Regarding a possible return to the organization that ultimately did not live up to his expectations, he said wouldn’t go back for all the money in the world.

“I think it should be changed to Take A Squat On WWE,” he responded regarding the organization’s Stand Up for WWE campaign. “It’s a joke. It’s a nasty place. I wouldn’t go back there for a gazillion dollars. Not for all the money in the world.”

London added, “It’s ass-backwards there. If you’re a better human being, you get pushed to the bottom. If you’re a piece of garbage and treat the fans with no respect and walk right by them, you get a push.”

— Catalina White, a former WWE developmental talent, revealed on her Twitter account that she married Jack Swagger over the weekend.

— Ring of Honor reportedly garnered 1,750 orders for Saturday’s Final Battle iPPV, which includes replay orders. The previous record was between 1,500 and 1,600.

    My god, has London still not shut up about how evil WWE is?
    The guy got pushed like nobody with how long he and Kendrick held the tag team titles, and yet he still claims he didnt get treated well.
    He takes every opportunity to complain about WWE, complain about Matt Hardy and complain about Billy Kidman.
    Quite frankly the guy has a lot of talent, but the thing that got him in trouble with WWE was his attitude, and by all accounts, its the same trouble he has on the indy scene as well.
    The guy has a chip on his shoulder the size of the Empire State building, and its just getting bigger and bigger.

    “So Paul London, as “nasty” as the place is, there are still many guys there who would kill to stay there. It’s not all sour grapes (pun absolutely intended)”


    For some reason, I’m not surprised this guy is griping about WWE over two years later. As for going to TNA, two chances of that: slim and none. TNA did consider him after being released by WWE, but apparently this guy inflated his own worth and claimed “back problems” at almost the last minute before a TV taping, because TNA wouldn’t pay him the extravagant amount. He’s just so full of himself.

    It’s funny how its always the guys that didn’t get anywhere in the WWE and eventually were released that have all the bad things to say about the organization. I’ve been a life-long wrestling fan, for the past twenty years now – so I can appreciate a GREAT wrestler. But I also understand that to be successful in professional wrestling, you need to be MORE than just a GREAT wrestler. Sure, sounds like an oxymoron, but its the truth. Maybe I’m spoiled, but its gonna take more than a couple of flashy moves (I’m looking right at you, Paul London) to win me over. The fact of the matter is that while Paul London (or whoever else, insert name here) may have been a great wrestler, but I never would have believed him as a “top guy.” It’s that simple.

    So Paul London, as “nasty” as the place is, there are still many guys there who would kill to stay there. It’s not all sour grapes (pun absolutely intended)

    So a guy who spent his whole career wanting to go to WWE and then is disappointed at how it turns out has to be a bitter former employee? It can’t just be someone who is legitimately disappointed at how their “dream job” turned out? It’s not like he’s Matt Hardy who can’t understand why WWE won’t push him when he’s in the worst shape of his life and believes he’s world champion material, maybe the guys really just disappointed.

    What really f.u.c.k the cruiserweight division up was the defunct of the title. If the WWE would have kept it around in this era, guys like London, Kendrick, Bourne, Kingston, and etc. would have a fair chance of being in the spotlight. In maybe RAW would be less boring and predictable….

    I don’t think WWE would take London back for all the money in the world..
