Rhodes is currently sidelined after undergoing surgery for a torn pec. Before his surgery, he wrestled in one more match against Seth Rollins inside Hell in a Cell.

WWE on ESPN has never felt right, this included.

Not to me, I’ve always associated wrestling with sports channels. Growing up raw was on TSN (Canadian espn) which now airs AEW, and even now Raw and SD are on sportnet here in Canada. I’ve always liked it when sports networks embrace wrestling.


Don’t be surprised in the next round of TV negotiations, ESPN could make a bid.


Makes sense if Disney is rumored to be interested in a purchase.
