The Grapevine (6/18/15): Seth Rollins and the Golden State Warriors, Tyson Kidd, Naomi

Good morning, everyone! It's your daily Grapevine, and for those who need to catch up, here's today's round-up of the (technically unconfirmed) dirt and rumors from the cartoon world of pro wrestling that you may have missed from the day before.

Not a hot news day, but some notable stuff nonetheless. Let's begin.

  • Tyson Kidd's wearing a neck brace. In a photo snapped at Dusty's funeral (which we won't repost because it's disrespectful) the former WWE Tag Team Champion was seen wearing a neck brace.

We say: Neck braces are no joke. We still don't have a timetable for Tyson's recovery, but considering the history of guys like Edge and Kurt Angle, that does support the prognosis that it could take at least a year.

  • Naomi apparently can't use the word "slay" anymore. You know, as in Slay-omi. She took to Twitter to crowdsource a new name for her fanbase and her "Slaymission" submission finisher.

We say: It seems as though the WWE machine has banned another word. I get the negative connotation of "slay," but aren't we going a little overboard with this, Vince? It's like blaming Grand Theft Auto for shootings again.

  • According to a report by, the Golden State Warriors used the clip of Seth Rollins trashing Cleveland on RAW for their pregame film session. It's the one where Seth says LeBron wasn't bringing a title home to Cleveland.

We say: Let's hope that makes Seth garner major heat in Cleveland the way LeBron gets the same in Chicago. And congratulations, Golden State!
