    We say: All champions are strangely on these lists, meaning they are somehow up for grabs. It's not like any of them will be switching places anyway, so we don't understand why brands have to waste valuable picks to re-draft their own champions.

    Candy Cartwright files multimillion-dollar lawsuit

    Wrestler Candy Cartwright is filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Matt Riddle, WWE, and EVOLVE for sexual assault. Cartwright is seeking damages against Riddle for the alleged sexual assault he committed from 2017 to 2020, while WWE and EVOLVE is also named for their "tacit approval" of Riddle's sexual assault. In a statement, WWE has denied that there was a lawsuit filed against them. (Source: Chicago Sun-Times, Wrestling Headlines)

    We say: This is huge, and might dictate the course of Riddle's WWE career (although it isn't a criminal case). But if Velveteen Dream's case is anything to go by, there's also the possibility that nothing might happen to him.
