The Grapevine (8/11/15): Your Semi-Regular Missing Wrestlers Update



Good morning, everyone! Welcome to the Grapevine, and for those who need to catch up, here's our round-up of the (technically unconfirmed) dirt and rumors from the cartoon world of pro wrestling that you may have missed over the evening.

Some interesting things have happened lately:



  • In an update on Sheamus's possible concussion sustained at last Monday's RAW, he is reportedly not wrestling on tonight's episode. The concussion hasn't been verified yet, but it is likely that he's backstage to take some Impact tests. Meanwhile, Dolph Ziggler is scheduled to return at next week's episode, while Kane is returning in two weeks. (Source: PWInsider)

We say: Despite karma coming to get him, we'd like to wish Sheamus a speedy recovery. Stories still need their characters to play out successfully.


  • This isn't exactly a rumor as it's already happened, but Brad Maddox has a new look. He's been teaming with Adam Rose on live events lately, and now he's bleached his hair blonde, as you can see below:
We say: We're not quite sure what to make of it yet, but we think it definitely does make him look a little more interesting. At least he's no longer Generic Short Wrestler #531234. Let's see what happens next.

What do you think of Brad Maddox's new look? What kind of character would you like to see him play? Do you approve of a team with Adam Rose? Let us know in the comments!
