Wrestling Rumors Thread

Figured it would be a good idea to have a thread for all juicy WWE rumors instead of them getting lost in RAW threads. I'll start off with a rumor KILLER.

January 15, 2015
There have been rumors spreading around the internet this week – ones that we have intentionally refrained from posting about until now – that WWE would be transitioning its programming back to TV-14 starting this year, and continuing into 2016.

So far as we can tell, the rumor began with a false report (claimed to be from Dave Meltzer) on the Squared Circle Reddit community. It stated that the move back to TV-14 was something Triple H had been wanting to do for some time, but had been continually shot down by Vince McMahon. It was also said that Triple H believed the three former Shield members – Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins – would be the major stars to carry the product into a new TV-14 generation.

Meltzer explicitly stated in today’s F4WOnline.com daily news update, “I never reported it, and there’s nothing to it.”

Laaaaaame. I could see guys like Bray, Dean, Seth, Bad News Barrett and several others really thriving in a TV-14 environment. Figured this rumor was too good to be true.

That's why I asked @Dissonance if we're sure Meltzer said that or not. It wasn't on any website at all other than Reddit. Unfortunate but it is what it is. These guys could have so much more depth to their characters if it wasn't for the PG rating.

That was actually a rumor? I thought that was a joke.

One of the guys posted it in the Raw thread as a rumor.

Meltzer notes this week in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Lanny (as well as Savageís wife Barbara and mother Judy) decided the time was right for the induction this year. Lanny reportedly believes that Randyís fans wanting the induction overrides Savageís wish to not go into the Hall of Fame without his family, since the Macho Manís fans created his stardom. McMahon, Meltzer notes, wanted to induct Randy, but he didnít want to induct the rest of the family with him.

The decision to have Hulk Hogan induct Savage was made by Lanny Poffo. The Hogan announcement surprised many, as the two wrestlerís had a rocky relationship that was borderline hate at different times. According to Meltzer, Lanny picked Hogan because he believes that two men really loved each other. Hogan claims that he and Savage made amends before his death, and although Hogan has a tendency to exaggerate stories, this claim is believed by many.

Interesting read as to how the Randy Savage induction came about. Feel bad for Lanny being stuck in the middle of all of this but I think it all worked out. Also glad he picked Hogan to induct him. Couldn't imagine anyone else doing it.

Re: Wrestling Rumors Thread

Still find it weird you need the family's permission for a HOF....

If they have a problem with it, don't attend. Owen needs to go in and I'm sure Hart clan would be there except his widow. She doesn't have to be.

According to a post on Reddit by user metsfan4Ever, a “verified WWE insider” who has broken and revealed some backstage news in the past, the reason Dolph Ziggler was booked to lose the Intercontinental title on RAW was because of a comedy gig he had booked at Second City Hollywood outside of his WWE commitments. Ziggler also does stand-up comedy work and is pursuing opportunities doing improv and stand-up comedy.

User metsfan4Ever said Ziggler’s comedy gig was “a main reason why he dropped the I.C. title on RAW.
Return to the doghouse?
Quote:
Reddit user “metsfan4ever,” who has broken WWE news before, posted a backstage update earlier this week for this week’s Smackdown. Smackdown recently made a return to Thursday this week on the SyFy network. According to his recent Reddit post, morale backstage at Smackdown was said to be at “an all-time high.”

The post added that WWE Superstars were happy about the show moving back to Thursday nights. Superstars feel the move could lead to more exposure and more subscriptions for the WWE Network.
Show was actually real good. DB return, SR-Heyman face-off was OUTSTANDING, Bray promo, DB, Ambrose, Reigns vs Kane, Show, Rollins.

I don't. The family should absolutely be asked for permission. And anyone that criticizes Martha Hart about wanting nothing to do with the WWE is an idiot. It sucks that we will never get to see Owen Hart honoured but at the end of the day it's more important as to what the family wants. Clearly she wants no association with the company or for them to make any money off of his death and I don't blame her one bit.

There continues to be strong interest from WWE in former Ring of Honor Champion Adam Cole. There has been interest from WWE in the past but thereís more of a feeling now that he could get signed.

Cole recently got shoulder surgery in hopes that he would be good for a potential post-WrestleMania 31 signing.

Cole going to WWE is not 100% at this point but the interest goes both ways. He has reportedly told some people that heís re-signing with ROH but the deal has not been finalized yet and with him out of action, there has been no urgency to sign the deal.

ADAM COLE!

I still will never understand from her point of view why Owen's widow can't just let the past be the past and let Owen be inducted. But at the same time though I've never lost a close one like that so suddenly over something like this.

WWE's current plan is for Bo Dallas to make his return in the 30-man Royal Rumble main event later this month.

It was announced on November 3rd that Bo suffered a foot injury and would be out of action for 6-8 weeks.

There's also been a heavy push within WWE for Diamond Dallas Page to be a surprise entrant in the Rumble this year and he's expected to be in the match.

BANG! Hope so.

It's funny how I find myself appreciating him/his career more now that he's retired.

There is a lot of speculation that Kalisto will be called up to the WWE main roister in the very near future. Kalisto is currently one half of the NXT tag team champions with Sin Cara, but

will be losing those titles on the January 28th edition of WWE NXT

His storylines with Karl Malone and Jay Leno always kind of ruined him for me.
