Matt Hardy’s Creative Freedom
Matt Hardy is expected to be “allowed a creative license” by Vince McMahon with his “Woken” gimmick, Sports Illustrated claims, according to a “contact” within WWE.
We’ll see, I guess… The debut promo on Raw seemed to clearly be all Matt Hardy’s doing. Definitely seems like something that can very quickly be ruined by Vince McMahon or other WWE writers trying to force things…
WWE is doing a WWE 24 documentary on the Hardys. Reby Hardy tweeted out this pic of her being interviewed for the documentary yesterday.
"Matt will never get hired because of your mouth."
"WWE wouldn't touch you with a 10 foot pole."

JBL Back on Commentary
JBL was back on commentary for the Tribute to the Troops show that was taped in San Diego on Tuesday. He called the show with Michael Cole and Byron Saxton. The show will air Thursday, December 14 on USA Network at 8 PM ET.
NXT aired a vignette for a mystery person on last night’s episode, with an androgynous silhouette and the word “SOON” with spades instead of the letter O.
Speculation is that it could be Shayna Baszler, whose nick name is “The Queen of Spades,” and will probably make her NXT debut soon, since she lost in the finals of the Mae Young Classic to Kairi Sane.
