Stephanie McMahon confirms Vince McMahon hates sneezing

In the past, ex-WWE employees have revealed Vince hates it when people sneeze in front of him.

And the WWE owner’s daughter, Stephanie, has confirmed those hilarious rumours.

She told the Barstool Sports podcast, The Corp: “He doesn’t hate me for it [sneezing], but it’s always like a grrr, a grimace.

“But on the flip side, I’ve been around when he has sneezed. It’s just because he doesn’t like anything he can’t control.

“The fact he can’t control the sneeze makes him upset.”

Sin Cara nearing return

Sin Cara underwent knee surgery last summer and has not been seen on WWE TV since.

But the masked man appears set for an in-ring return after using social media to promote a WWE Live event earlier this week, which takes place in El Paso, Texas on September 27.

Sheamus gives injury update

Sheamus has been sidelined since suffering a concussion on the first SmackDown Live episode after WrestleMania 35 in April.

The Grand Slam champion’s absence led to retirement rumours, which the Irishman denied.

So, when will we see Sheamus in a WWE ring again?

He told Wrestling Inc: “I don’t really know what the crack is. I’m still waiting. I’m just, again, enjoying my time. Like, it’s very hard for me to sit at home all the time.

“But I don’t really know what the story is as of right now. I’m still kind of in the dark about it, but I’m just training away like I’m trying to stay in the best shape I possibly can.”

Chris Jericho LOSES AEW World Championship belt while eating dinner

Less than 24 hours after beating Adam Page to win the inaugural championship at All Out on Saturday, Jericho’s $100,000 belt was reported stolen.

The former WWE star realised his precious strap had gone missing while eating dinner at a LongHorn Steakhouse in Tallahassee, Florida.

More title matches added to Clash of Champions card

The Clash of Champions card is starting to stack up.

This week’s Raw and SmackDown Live episodes have seen Raw Women’s Championship and Intercontinental Championship matches announced.

Sasha Banks will challenge Becky Lynch for her title, while The Miz takes on Shinsuke Nakamura.

Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville beat Women’s Tag Team champs Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross in a non-title match on SmackDown Live, so there is likely to be a repeat of that bout, but for the gold, at Clash of Champions.
