Ryback in NJPW is best for his career I believe but I wouldn't be opposed to a TNA run.

I bet Darren Young eventually falls for Bob Backlund and that's the first gay storyline .

NXT Brooklyn card is stacked, should be a stellar show.

Aron Rex had a interesting debut on Impact, I'm curious to see where it goes.

I've been kind of suspicious of Cody Rhodes joining Matt Taven in ROH in a new Kingdom stable and that news only adds to the suspicion.

The "you're not in the business so you can't comment" thing wrestlers always spew out is hilarious. It's like saying you're not allowed to dislike a movie because you're not a director, or you're not allowed to dislike a band because you're not a guitar player.

This, the "they know better" defence is tired and arrogant. Such an arrogant and disappointing response from him. For me, it just shows how much they value fan opinion. They are people to be manipulated, not listened to.

I couldn't care less what he says about 50/50 booking, it is boring to watch and doesn't create any stars. He should be "feeling" that, even if he doesn't count wins and losses.

Noone is saying guys can't lose, but there should be a certain hierarchy on both brands.

One example I would give is ironically involving HHH himself. If I watched Smackdown and the WWE Champion, Dean Ambrose, got pinned by anyone on that roster, I wouldn't even flinch.

Take, however, when HHH lost to Shelton Benjamin, or when The Rock lost to The Hurricane. Those were massive memorable moments. Big stars, who hardly ever lost on TV, losing in big upsets. Those moments live on in my memory because they were so shocking and exciting.

There are no big stars nowadays, everyone loses on TV all the time, and while The Game would surely argue that the talent needs to "step up", many are just as talented performers as he was, but they have no direction and have certainly not been gifted the momentum that he was.

I wasn't even going to comment, but just couldn't resist after "how's your territory doing?", when the position he is in was gifted to him and it's quite obvious that Wrestlemania and the WWE as a whole thrives off its legacy and tradition, rather than the stars, or lack thereof, that they have now.

I don't usually get annoyed about things like that, or leave myself open to the usual "you don't know better than Vince!!1!!" response, but actually felt anger reading that from him.

I certainly don't know better, but that doesn't mean that he knows what he is doing either, despite being the performer he was.

I had a dream where the first LGBT storyline involved Nia Jax being transgender.

Though, that's probably because I read the news about LGBT storyline and then listened to Nia's theme before going to bed and my brain just put them together and made it into a dream.

Also, a few days ago I saw her T-Shirt for men on WWEShop.com, so that could have possibly contributed to the dream.



But that's not really the sensitive approach the LGBT community would like, so I really doubt that would happen.

I kind of feel like Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa should lose and end up on the SmackDown roster before long. They would be great working with American Alpha. I know that it might be seem more intuitive to put them on RAW with the cruiserweights, but there's already a stacked scene there and I imagine that there will be a few new faces over there to job to the Red Arrow.

WWE alum Stu “Wade Barrett” Bennett spoke with WrestleZone Daily for a new interview.

On if King of the Ring still has a place in the current company:

“The title of King of the Ring can be prestigious but if it’s followed up by non-existent writing then it’s pointless. Which I think was the issue in regards to me. The tournament itself is fine, there were some good matches and we got a bit of hype behind it and then it was followed up with three months of two grown men fighting over a toilet plunger. Which, you know, you follow something up with writing like that and it’s not going to lead to anything good. The title of King of the Ring is fine on it’s own but you have to follow it up with good writing.”

On his own King of the Ring win:

“It was thrown together very last minute. I think we did the quarter finals the week before and then we came back the next week and did the actual semi-finals and the finals on a one hour special on the WWE Network. Probably about forty minutes before the show went live we didn’t even know who was winning the tournament. We knew that it was going to be me and Neville in the finals. It all honesty, a complete lack of thought had gone into it. I was given Booker T’s old outfit from ten years earlier. Obviously it didn’t look great. There was no follow up to it with a storyline or anything like that. If it was meant as an attempt to push me or get me over I think there really wasn’t any effort put in from the word, ‘Go.'”

PWInsider.com is reporting that the WWE SummerSlam Concert that was due to be held next Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York has officially been canceled.

According to the website, an email was sent out to those who purchased tickets for the concert, which was to be headlined by Flo Rida, announcing that the show had been canceled. The event is also listed as being canceled on the official Ticketmaster website.

As of the initial reports, the exact reason for the cancellation remains unclear; however, there is word from multiple sources that ticket sales were not going as well as expected. Besides Flo Rida, there were also due to be performances from other acts including Daya, Jordan Hollywood, and Jason Derulo.

The concert was organized to be a fundraiser for WWE's "Connor's Cure" charity, and WWE had been partnering with local radio station Z100 for the event.

It’s apparent from this study that Reigns has not caught on as intended. The company invested a great of TV time trying to establish him as a new top babyface over the last two years, and has gotten little return on that investment. While Cena was booed somewhat as well during his rise to stardom, this is different. Whatever reaction Cena got on any given night, he made a positive difference to business, as evidenced in this article. You might argue Reigns is a face to some fans and a great heel to those fans who boo him, but he’s not drawing any better than Ambrose, who is a guy who often couldn’t muster wins on pay-per-views since the Shield was disbanded, while Reigns was frequently in the title picture at the same time.

In India, there is a situation where Sony Six would take over the Ten Network in India in a $500 million deal. Talks have reached advanced stages. TNA is on Sony Six and WWE is on Ten. The key to the deal is certain Ten contracts would move to Sony Six, including the UEFA Champions League, international cricket and the WWE. What we’re told is that if the deal goes through, there will be a call taken on how things will be done. It is possible, even though local media stories indicate it differently, that Sony Six and Ten will remain separate channels, in which case it wouldn’t affect wrestling on TV there. But if they merge into one channel, and it already being reported that WWE would move to Sony Six, it is believed only one wrestling company will remain on television in India, although none of those decisions have been made

So here is how things look for tomorrow's show:

*If Tetsuya Naito either wins or goes to a 30:00 draw with Kenny Omega, he faces Goto in the finals.

*If Michael Elgin and Kenny Omega both win, Elgin faces Goto in the finals. Doubt that's happening.

*If Katsuyori Shibata and Kenny Omega both win, Shibata goes to the finals against high school best friend Goto

*If Elgin, Shibata and Omega all win, then Elgin goes to the finals.

*The winner of Sunday's match will be in position to challenge for the IWGP title at the Tokyo Dome on 1/4.

Some other sheet news includes:
  • According to the NBA schedule released for next season, WWE RAW will be competing against NBA games on Mondays starting this January.
  • According to the Observer, Del Rio's future in the WWE will be decided next month since that is when his opt out clause can be used for his current contract.
  • According to PWI, WWE is currently trying to get the huge class-action lawsuit against them by 50 wrestlers to be moved to a more pro-WWE court location.

Hell I'd trade the whole Smackdown tag division for NXTs.

Vaudevillians for The Revival

Ascension for Authors of Pain

Hype Bros for Ciampa and Gargano

Would keep Breezeango, American Alpha, and The Usos.

Really never watched NXT Tag Team wrestling but since they have moved all the dumb teams up to the main roster the NXT Tag division is looking pretty good.

Vaudevillians and Ascension are NXT gimmicks that never got expanded on once they got called up. They didn't tweak it enough or add anything to it that would make them stand out to a larger audience. Some gimmicks can transfer with out any tweaks but those two aren't that type of gimmick.

Ever since the Ascension left, NXT has done a really good job at building the tag division.

Not really the Ascension's fault though since the bulk of their time there was just random squash matches or feuds that went no where.

I'm not against this at all. The Revival attacking American Alpha after they are presented with the new Tag Team Championship they earn by beating The Usos would be sweeeet.

I'm fine with The Authors of Pain staying down in NXT for a while. Truth be told, moving the belts onto Gargano & Ciampa and then having The Revival crash SmackDown would make total sense. Gargano & Ciampa can then drop the belts to The Authors who eventually drop them to TM61. Or they beat TM61 and become the new Ascension in NXT while TM61 jump to the main roster -- maybe RAW -- and beat the piss out of Enzo & Cass.

Love Breezango, but I hate their name and entrance. They need to strike that right note of "proper tag team" and they could be very valuable additions. They need to look at John Morrison & The Miz as inspiration. Let them achieve more.

Retreating to nature to help cope with his extreme sadness:

"That's what I needed. I needed to get away from all of that and just get out to be by some trees. It's hard for me. I don't do really well in cities, which is crazy given that we're flying in and out of these major cities every week. Brie (Bella, his wife) describes it as anxiety. And she would be accurate. I get this anxiety in cities and places like that. When you grow up in kind of a small town and when you grow up around a lot of green and trees and nature and that sort of thing, sometimes I think it's a little mentally disconcerting to be around this concrete."

Del Rio returned to the company in 2015 after spending a year outside of the promotion. He was released in 2014 for "unprofessional conduct" after getting into a backstage altercation with a company employee who allegedly made a racist joke.

Del Rio was drafted to Smackdown during the WWE Draft. At this time, it isn't clear if the violation will have any affect on his immediate future.
Could lead to him triggering his opt out clause depending on what happens within the next 30 days. Paige being suspended on the same day also coincided with it being her birthday.

Much of what Triple H said then seemed to contradict the way he books NXT, but on Wednesday's conference call he noted the differences in booking NXT and main roster television given the different length of the shows.

“When you compare a one-hour show to a three-hour show from a writing and a booking standpoint it’s not even in the same stratosphere. It’s a totally different animal. “ Triple H said.

He reiterated that booking is a feel, and said he listens to both what the audience wants and what he wants to see as a fan when booking NXT.

“None of it is right and wrong, it’s chocolate, it’s vanilla, it’s all these different things that they’re different flavors, and at the end of the day the long-term success of your business and your company, and you can say what you want about it, but there’s a pretty good track record for a lot of it.” Triple H said.

Triple H said he books NXT the way he wants to book it, while the main roster programming is sometimes done differently and other times it isn't.

Triple H was more than happy to talk about the Cruiserweight Classic and Raw's upcoming cruiserweight division.

Triple H said the project is something that he’s wanted to do for years ...

The first question of the call asked Triple H about the process of creating Raw's cruiserweight division ...

“We’re signing a lot of cruiserweights right now and I’m, you know, basically I’m creating a division. So, I’m going around and signing guys and I’m also keeping an eye towards the future as well, I don’t need to have every single cruiserweight right now, I just need to have a decent amount. And they will be working NXT, they will be working NXT live events, and they’ll also be working Raw as cruiserweights. The opportunity is there to do both.” Triple H said.

Kota Ibushi has been one of the cruiserweights that has earned significant praise in the CWC, and our Dave Meltzer asked about his contract status on the call.

Ibushi had insisted that he was interested in working for the WWE while continuing his work elsewhere as a freelancer, but while saying they're open to different things, Triple H seemed to reject that idea ...

Later in the call, Triple H was asked whether we would see a cruiserweight champion crowned on the CWC final but said we’d have to wait and see. He concluded the call by praising many of the competitors in the tournament, noting that they’ve created something special. He said that they’re still deciding what the next opportunity is.

F4WOnline‘s Dave Meltzer spoke about why certain wrestlers didn’t return to WWE in the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, as well as the Newsletter. WWE contacted several former names but only Jinder Mahal, Rhyno and Curt Hawkins came back. Shelton Benjamin was set to return as well, but he was forced to have surgery on a torn rotator cuff.

Meltzer said that talks with MVP are “now dead” and he didn’t think WWE really wanted MVP back that badly.

He mentioned that a lot of the talent contacted are not returning because they’re doing better in the independent scene. He brought up Ryback charging $4,500 for appearances as an example. He said he found out what a “pretty significantly pushed person” was making in WWE at the moment and said there are wrestlers in TNA (who are getting their money, he noted), making more than that person while working fewer dates.

Tommy Dreamer turned down an offer because the WWE deal was not better than what he was already making. He would have been making less per date and spending more time and money on the road.

Officials also were not happy about Ambrose publicly talking about how Brock Lesnar didn't want to do anything for their match at WrestleMania 32.

As of press time, Lesnar appeared to be in no trouble nor has anything been said about it. Lesnar’s contract is unique as there are provisions regarding what he can and can’t be disciplined for, plus there is always the double standard for what a Cena or a Lesnar can get away with compared to everyone else
Even Orton got away with going off script from his interview on the last RAW. https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...hat_interview/

Ember Moon didn’t have a huge name on the indie scene but also had years of experience and was well known by woman wrestling fans before she ever signed. The rest of the wrestlers were genuine stars on the indie scene, the international scene or with major promotions. Next year, when WWE tells investors how NXT turned out eight new wrestlers, or whatever the number will be, and it’s due to NXT, when those people are Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode or Shinsuke Nakamura, it’s kind of a funny thing

Bill Goldberg appeared at Gamescom 2016 in Cologne, Germany and had some interesting things to say about a possible WWE return and Brock Lesnar. Here are a couple of highlights:

Goldberg said that he should be on the cover because he “killed the guy (Brock Lesnar) that’s on the cover.”

When fans started changing, “please come back,” Goldberg said that he’ll see what he can do.

Goldberg mentioned that he’s headed to New York City, and that’s all he can say about that. He said that you can never say never, and even at his age he has no issue putting his gear on and “ripping people’s faces off again.”

Goldberg was asked point blank when he’ll be back in WWE. Goldberg said that he honestly has no idea and doesn’t know if it will ever happen.

When asked about Brock Lesnar, Goldberg said that Brock knows how he feels about him. He said that they’ve been in the ring and while they didn’t have the best match, Brock knows his power. He said that’s what is missing is someone giving Brock the fight like he gives to everyone else. Goldberg says that Brock knows what would happen, he knows where he lives, and the same thing will happen to Brock that happened at WrestleMania XX.

During a recent interview with SoleCollector.com, Enzo explained why he doesn’t wear wrestling boots.

It’s actually a funny story. I used to wear wrestling boots when I first got signed to the WWE. It was mandatory that each and every single superstar under contract buy and wear boots, or wear amateur wrestling shoes, which are thin cut. It wasn’t a stipulation in our contract or anything, but when you showed up to wrestling school, the head coach would say “Hey do you got your wrestling boots?” So I had to go out and buy wrestling boots, which I had never worn before in my life. I did not feel comfortable in them.

What ended up happening was I had a freak incident where I broke my leg in training in the performance center while wearing wrestling boots. It wasn’t so much “Oh, he was wearing wrestling boots,” but in my mind I was like “It’s the wrestling boot.”

If you ever looked at the spectrum of people in the company wearing sneakers for a long period of time, it’s only John Cena. When I broke my leg I came to our head coach with a doctor’s note that said “Enzo needs to be wearing sneakers when he wrestles because he broke his leg and that’s what he feels comfortable in.” Breaking my leg was the be-all, end-all of wrestling boots [for me], and I turned it into an opportunity to capitalize on a market that I am infatuated with. When I came back, the first pair of shoes I wore when I got in the ring was the Ferrari 14 Jordans.

Just before her gold medal match, I had a feeling that if she won, that talk about her and the WWE would begin to appear on the internet.

The relatively insignificant storyline punishment seems like it’s intended to further the tensions between the Raw and SmackDown brands, as well as increase conflict between the McMahon siblings.

So instead they were given a farewell last night in Brooklyn where they got to turn babyface, set up signature spots with the Shining Stars, and then be used to get heel heat for Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows, the Raw brand's top heel tag team.

The WWE was very gracious with them on television on the way out, with the announcers pushing that they may have been the greatest tag team in pro wrestling history.

He asked Michael Hayes what the finish was or if that was the finish. Hayes wouldn't answer him at which point Jericho said, "That's bullsh*t."

Jericho said that just as Lesnar came back from the ring. Lesnar thought he was talking about his match, and called Jericho a pussy according to one version, or "shut up" according to another, and to mind his own business. The two got face-to-face and started exchanging words, with one version saying they were shouting at each other the whole time.

Lesnar pushed Jericho with his fingers, and Jericho did what was described as the "Rousey-Tate" foreheed press. One version also had Jericho shoving Lesnar to the wall at one point.

They got tangled up against the wall and Lesnar told Jericho to punch him or kiss him. Paul "HHH" Levesque jumped in quickly and broke it up. It was heated enough that they went back at it at which time Vince McMahon broke it up. Jericho started yelling about Lesnar and McMahon told Jericho that it was all a work and to be professional.

Levesque reportedly told McMahon that Lesnar started it, and Jericho was just standing up for himself but there were more words exchanged.

Jericho saw Orton and got mad, which everyone noted was because he was concerned with Orton's health and safety. Orton reportedly assured him that he knew the way everything was coming.

Sting said he did have talks with Vince McMahon, but when attorneys got involved, things did not work out. So, Sting stayed away from WWE for 12 years until joining the company in 2014 ...

Sting also talked about not trusting WWE and McMahon at the time, believing that Vince “wanted me more to undermine WCW than he did as a talent.”

And Hart doubled down on those criticisms after Finn Balor was injured after taking a powerbomb into the barricade against Rollins at SummerSlam.

Hart released a statement (with paragraph breaks added) to Nick Hausman of Wrestlezone: "I take no great pleasure in saying 'I told you so,' but if you’re a professional wrestler and you keep hurting opponents and or yourself, clearly you’re doing it wrong. I wrestled a very realistic and physical style and not once in 23 yrs did I ever hurt one opponent ever.

Seth Rollins needs to improve his technique and become the safest wrestler in the business. I have great respect for Seth. I believe he’ll improve and hopefully stop hurting the talent before someone gets killed. Wrestlers have to trust one another. If a wrestler holds the life of another wrestler in his hands for the sake of his family, wife or children you plain and simply cannot drop it!

I saw this coming, if anything WWE producers are negligent for not speaking up about it to him already, instead they’re probably gushing with joy, slapping him on the back telling him 'great job!' Bill Goldberg was similar. When I think of Samoa Joe nearly killing Tyson Kidd, then see him continuing to use that deadly finish of his, I just shake my head. It’s not real, it’s only supposed to look real, wrestlers are not crash test dummies!"
Lance Storm also bashed Rollins to a lesser degree for being a bit wreckless with his moves during a guest appearance on a recent Observer Radio show. Basically said Rollins needs to be more aware his powerbomb moves are all on him to ensure others are safe taking them.

But it seemed at the time like kind of a leopard’s play, so it just didn’t interest me. I wanted to stick it out, and I always tried to not take Pop’s advice, because he’s my dad, so the advice always came from that part of his heart, not the businessman part of his mind, but his heart, and actually at the end of my WWE career, he was right that I should have made that decision maybe a little sooner.”

I was thinking the same thing about Rollins. Honestly, the first 2 times I guess you can say unlucky, but this is the third time. I know it may kill everyone to admit, but Bret Hart is right and WAS right the whole fucking time.

Bret's hyperbole about how "he never hurt anyone" is a crock of shit, but certainly never to the degree of Rollins.

I think the move itself is more unsafe than rollins. Too many variables on how a person can land, and it can be difficult to brace yourself for it.

I ghink if rollins retires the move, then it's problem solved, because outside of that cena thing with the knee, he's never hurt anyone before, in wwe or the indies.

He's the one doing the move though and it is wildly unsafe. Like someone said, he needs to respect the recklessness of his powerbomb and not be so willy nilly with it. I think what he did to Sting is WAY worse but this still doesn't look good.

I think he's a good dude, and a great worker and praise after praise after praise, but come on, this is 3 guys he's hurt, 2 on the same move. You can only keep having so many accidents before it seems like you aren't taking responsibility for the guys inside the ring with you as much as you should be.

Then again, I'm not a worker, so maybe I'm completely wrong, and where you're going with it is completely right, Figgy. Your point has a definite validity to it, I just think in this case, where there's smoke there is fire.

1) Think you rode past Sting, there.

2) I hate to say it, because I'm a fan, but if it were a lot of the names on the undercard that had the same track record, we would be most likely reading about releases or at least a dropped push about now. Especially if he had hurt Randy Orton (Ken Kennedy, anyone? Kofi Kingston?)

The buckle bomb could probably go, but I think a lot of the injuries around Seth comes down to him feeling the need to prove himself. He's a lankier guy, so he wants to show he can toss guys around and look "legit" in there. That's only speculation, of course, but I can only imagine the pressure Seth Rollins has felt as a guy trying to embed himself in the main event with the terrible booking in WWE.

He can probably take a massive chill pill right now though, because it's obvious he's a guy in the WWE.
