DID WWE BAN VICTORIA, BC FROM THEIR LIVE TOURS?, MR. T'S HALL OF FAME SPEECH, WAYLON MERCY AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2017-11-25 10:00:00

Do you know if WWE has banned Victoria BC from hosting anymore events?  WWE hasn't returned here since 2015 when Roman Reigns was hit in head by a fan who threw MITB replica briefcase.   Victoria BC has quite the history of fan incidents with the infamous Jericho incident, HHH being attacked. Every show there's always incident of some kind.   Meanwhile, WWE continues returning to Vancouver for shows.

The company is slated to run Vancouver in February 2018, a WWE source told me when I asked your question.  I am told a date is confirmed but has not been announced publicly.

With Raw and Smackdown both being in NYC for the Rae 25th Anniversary show, where is Smackdown broadcasting from the next night?

We are told Smackdown will emanate from Washington, DC on 1/23/18.

Why did Waylon Mercy disappear so quickly?

Dan Spivey was having issues with his knees, which led to the character being phased out rather quickly.

I am watching old WWE Hall of Fames and I was wondering if Mr. T really loves his Mama?  No, just kidding.  I was wondering if we ever got to find out what was in the rest of his speech?

Mr. T promised to release it, but to this day, has not.  I am bummed about that as I thought that speech was fantastic.  The live crowd went from loving him, to mocking him, to cheering him on. 

Do you think WWE would ever do a documentary about the creation and growth of the WWE Hall of Fame?

I guess I could see them doing a WWE 24 on that one day.  I like the idea but I don't know it's something the company would see as a huge money maker.
