Hurricane Helms On MSG Sell Out
Hurricane Helms reacted to the recent MSG sell out for the Ring Of Honor and New Japan show, asking if it was a coincidence that it has sold out shortly after he joined the company.
Is it a coincidence that shortly after I start working with @ringofhonor that they sell out MSG?

Cody On National Anthem
Cody Rhodes has been asking for an independent wrestler to sing the American national anthem at ALL IN, and after someone replied regarding taking a knee. Cody responded to that and made it clear that if people want to protest then they can, as the song is about freedom.
He went on to say it is a beautiful song that reminds him of what the country has afforded him in life, which is why he wants it at the event.
I know you intended to be snide, but this is your show. Stand, kneel, sit…the flag represents a lot…one of them is freedom & freedom of protest. Do whatever you feel.
To me it’s a beautiful song that reminds us of the country that’s afforded me a wonderful life.
