I think the idea is that he kind of has a special place in the Wyatt family, sure they even added the intro to his old Burn in My Light theme to the Family intro. I think that's one of the reasons Harper isn't supposed to like him, he's not fully one of them like Harper is. Or was, perhaps, after the Sister Abigail on Smackdown last week.

Sounds pretty bad, hope she pulls through:

 

JAN ROSS, WIFE OF JR, SUFFERS MULTIPLE SKULL FRACTURES IN BIKE CRASH

 

- Jim Ross’ wife Jan was involved in a serious accident last night and is in critical condition. Ross, who was riding her Vespa without her helmet, was hit from behind by a car driven by a 17-year-old. She was thrown from her Vespa and landed on her head, causing multiple skull fractures. Her scooter eventually caught fire. "My wife Jan, my little angel, was hit while riding her Vespa and has multiple skull fractures. She's in surgery now. We need a miracle,” JR tweeted last night. Thoughts and prayers are with Jim Ross and his wife during this difficult time.

I can't believe that WWE have dropped Talking Smack as a weekly show and will now be only on after a Smackdown PPV. I really enjoyed it as it complemented Smackdown shows.

 

Even Renee can't understand why they did it according to her tweet last night.- she responded to a tweet sayng "Really disappointed about Talking Smack. We tried to make the show great. Guess I'll go back to welcoming my guest at this time."

 

Baffling!

Yeah. Daniel Bryan wasn't told about it either. I don't know why they cancelled it. It was such a popular show and I personally enjoyed it. It had a good balance of kayfabe and reality.

 

You should see the replies to Triple H's latest tweet. It's a ton of "#SaveTalkingSmack".

Did they cancel the Raw show too? If they did, it was probably just to streamline things.

 

No. RAW Talk didn't get cancelled. RAW Talk is only after RAW pay-per-views and that's what Talking Smack will be for SmackDown moving forward.

From reports, it was a snap decision by Vince McMahon because he didn't like that it was genuinely unscripted, meaning the talent were speaking for themselves in their own words (he was concerned it would affect the scripted shows should a TS comment contradict something).

That begs the question, why was Vince just now concerned about that? The show has been going on for a year.

 

Also, god forbid talent get to speak for themselves instead of reciting the dribble that Vince and company comes up with.

If it outright contradicts what is happening on the show (or in future episodes for said characters), accidentally (on purpose) mentions a spoiler or has the talent openly dissing their booking, etc, then Vince will rightly feel it's going to be a problem.

 

If the show was done in the vein of Bring It to the Table (i.e. non-kayfabe), then that would be different, but it's meant to be an extension of Smackdown Live, so I can see his point.

 

That doesn't mean I'm for the show being cancelled as it was always good value. Perhaps moving it back to being directly after Smackdown and instructing the talent to stray from anything that could be construed as kayfabe-breaking. That or having it aired on a different day and used as a partial-kayfabe interview / recap show.

If that's true - it's typical Vince. Randomly one day, he will decide to do something like when he decided he didn't want to have talent have first names e.g. Neville and Cesaro. Whereas, the previous day he wasn't bothered by it.

That's the thing though; it's his sandbox and his toys, so he can do what he likes with them in that regard.
