Jeopardy is one of the longest-running game shows on television. Every once in a while the questions and answers dip into other worlds of popular culture. Sometimes they reference released WWE stars like No Way Jose.
Such a thing happened on a recent episode of the show as Alex Trebek asked contestants to name the first ‘W’ in WWE, where Kofi Kingston and No Way Jose wrestle with issues. The contestant got the answer correct.
I have also never heard WWE described as “wrestling with issues” but will be sure to call it that from now on.

It is unfortunate that they chose Jose of all people to be included in the answer. He was one of the many people who were released by WWE two weeks ago.
He had been on the main roster for two years, debuting after WrestleMania 34. His run was one of the most underwhelming of any NXT call-up, as he transitioned to being an enhancement talent almost immediately.
Since his release, he has told us he is looking forward to shedding his old monicker and showing he is more than the gimmick WWE gave him.
