If it were anyone else, I’d say they might have to change course. But changing course isn’t something WWE does much at the top level anymore. Remember when Punk got hurt last fall? This is what I said:
I’ve not been shy with my compliments to wwe.com lately, and this article is further proof that they really do know what they’re doing. Is there a single question about a hurt, surgery-anticipating champion that a dirtsheet, newsletter, paid-subscription hub, tumblr, wordpress, or any other type of independent delivery method that wasn’t immediately addressed in a few hundred words right here? I think not. WWE is cutting “sources,” “rumours,” and “dirt” off at the knees.
