Earlier today Planeta Wrestling reported that WWE has plans to hold a Latin talent tournament sometime this year, similar to that of the Cruiserweight or Mae Young Classic, however William Regal Tweeted the following, shooting down the report:
I usually use this account for entertainment purposes only.This is official though.
The @WWE has no Latin American tournament booked at this time despite the news that is being reported today.

Cody ‘Humbles’ Fan On Twitter
As we noted yesterday, Cody Rhodes defended Vince McMahon when a fan on Twitter asked whether or not McMahon holds talents back in WWE, and Cody furthered his argument with the below Twitter exchange:
I think it’s a great example of @CodyRhodes taking accountability for himself and his career trajectory which I commend him for. That said, it’s a political answer and not exactly grounded in reality. To say Vince doesn’t hold people back is just flat out false. https://t.co/YuwbGSjpkp

Don’t comment directly on my tweet as if I don’t see it. How’s my answer to a fan in a random Q/A remotely political? I have zero to gain. I worked there, you didn’t…you bought a ticket, not an education. Sit the fuck down. https://t.co/AVpor9CznG
