EDIT:  Anyhow, I thought Lenny Leonard was Gabe's on air persona, wasn't it?

 

 

No. Gabe used the aliases Chris Lovey and Jimmy Bauer while doing ROH commentary, but Lenny Leonard is somebody else entirely.

Thanks for the tip. I was always curious about who those guys were and why they didn't pop up anywhere else and then, I find out it was Gabe all along lol

So what's the deal with a bunch of folks in the biz going off on Twitter about internet rumors about JBL leaving?

JBL's departure was supposedly in the works since October 2016, before the Mauro situation began.

Graves is replacing JBL on Smackdown

 

And Nigel is replacing Graves on 205 Live and Main Event.

Please expand.

 

Although, as soon as this story broke I thought it smelled highly fishy.  I wouldn't at all be surprised if this actually was a result of the Mauro Ranallo situation - like Vince asked for his resignation at the time but agreed to put it off for a couple of months so it didn't look like they were caving to pressure from the outside.  At the very least, I don't think he's really quitting to devote more time to charity.  I think he's quitting or being forced out for reasons we don't yet know.  Just my opinion.

Hmmm.  So it that story is to be believed, JBL quit because they were pressuring him over making his own travel arrangements and not wanting to spend as much time on the road?  Plausible.

 

So this means RAW will be Cole, Graves and King Bookah, and SDL will be Phillips, Graves and Saxton?  They're really going to be working Graves into the ground.  Which from a selfish perspective is great, because he's excellent.  I especially enjoy he and Phillips working together.  I have no issue with Nigel working 205 Live because Graves was wasted there anyhow.  Your #1 color guy shouldn't be on your C show.

Just seeing people like Taz going off about not believing what the mean internet people are saying about the reason JBL is leaving and I haven't heard anything other than what WWE put out,

So, "internet people" who totally want to be heard, like all of us, get shade thrown at them about being heard, and then it's " Oh, what's the matter, snowflake?" when wrestlers address you? It's the definition of cowardice and douchebag behavior.
Doesn't matter what the real reason he's leaving is, that sort of shit is the worst.

I've read this quote several times and I'm having a hard time figuring out who you're angry with.  Internet fans for speculating on the "real reason" JBL is leaving? Internet fans for pointing out Taz is bitching about the fans?  Taz for bitching about the fans?

The answer is just Taz. It's always Taz.
