WWE Removes Stephanie McMahon’s Invitation to Michael Sam, Another Title Match Confirmed for Night of Champions

WWE Moving on From Michael Sam

michael samAs we reported earlier today, it’s likely NFL star Michael Sam will be signing a contract with the Dallas Cowboys, and will not be available for Monday Night Raw next week despite WWE and Stephanie McMahon’s “open invitation” for him to appear. 

It appears that WWE has already changed gears, and is trying to move on from the Michael Sam angle as quickly as possible. Earlier today the article was the first thing on WWE.com, and as of now it’s nowhere on the front page, or the dedicated page for Monday Night Raw. You can still search for related articles, but the page that hosted Stephanie’s letter now redirects to the homepage.

Instead of Sam, WWE has announced Jerry Springer for Raw next week, in a “family management” segment with the Bella Twins. 

Title Match Confirmed for Night of Champions

WWE has confirmed that Dolph Ziggler will defend the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz at this month’s Night of Champions PPV.
