Josh Matthews "suing" WWE?

- WWE's website has a new storyline article up on Josh Mathews, after he was attacked by Kane again on last night's SmackDown. The attack came after Kane lost his match against Alberto Del Rio thanks to Ricardo Rodriguez.

Mathews has been attacked by Brock Lesnar once and Kane twice over the past few weeks.

Joey Styles told WWE.com: "The fact that Superstars assaulting WWE announcers doesn’t result in immediate suspension or termination of the Superstar is ridiculous. These attacks would never be tolerated in any other sport. Josh has every right to sue Kane for assault and WWE. I’ve seen and signed WWE announcer contracts. Nowhere in the contract is WWE held harmless for Superstars assaulting announcers half their size. I hope Josh does sue. Maybe then, these assaults will end once and for all."

WWE's camera crews caught up with an angry Mathews walking in on Booker T. Mathews has threatened to sue WWE and Booker.

Obviously just a storyline but i have a feeling between this and Vickie trying to get AJ fired we may be seeing Big Johnny back very soon.

If they turned Josh heel it might be a good move, he's a complete anomaly on commentary even if I enjoy him as a backstage interviewer. He looks like a weasel, so a cowardly heel turn would be a good move.

I think this sounds cool so long as they don't focus too much on it as my problem with wrestling lately has been the amount of pointless non-wrestler segments with a distinct lack of wrestling and when there is a match it usually ends with a DQ, interruption or someone running away. MORE matches with a win/loss (the main event matches never have this) and I will accept a story like this. And Josh sucks as a face as he is boring but he could be a Brian Kendrick type who is a lame face but cracking heel character.

Nevertheless its good news for Awesome in the fantasy league if Josh gets this exposure. Could be the dark horse of his team  (Y)

Exactly what I was thinking.  :D

I think RAW has too many segments, Smackdown isn't too bad. RAW's just dragging shit out for the sake of it being 3 hours long. I agree on matches though, they need some originality with some of the story builds.

Yeah but with Cole already heel i doubt it will happen. if it did you would just have him and Cole shitting on everyone on SD.
Bring Booker back, makes sense if Big Johnny returns. Cole kind of plays a tweener role atm I find, he doesn't need to be on both shows either.

Even if Johnny returns I doubt they make him GM of both shows again. Booker's doing fine as GM of SD, I think they're doing all the AJ/Vickie stuff to replace AJ only.


Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.
