AJ Styles Denies Report Of New Contract
AJ Styles denied a recent report that shook the pro wrestling community. Per the report, The Phenomenal One has signed a new deal with WWE.
The former WWE Champion’s current contract expires in April (post-WrestleMania 35).
Eric Bischoff On Dean Ambrose
Eric Bischoff recently appeared on After 83 Weeks with Christy Olson to discuss a variety of topics on professional wrestling.
During the interview, the former WCW President expressed his opinion on Dean Ambrose officially quitting WWE after WrestleMania 35.
“No disrespect at all to Dean Ambrose…I don’t think it matters at all. That’s not because of Dean’s abilities or lack thereof. But in WWE right now WWE is the star. Everybody else on that roster is a co-star, to one degree or another. Stars are now interchangeable.”
“The roster is deep enough, and the pool of talent is deep enough that whether it’s a situation like Roman Reigns, as devastating as that was, WWE shifted on the fly. They didn’t even have to hit the clutch. They just kept going, right? I think that that’s intentional.”
John Cena Vs. Lars Sullivan
WrestleMania plan for John Cena vs. Lars Sullivan could be in serious jeopardy.
As reported prior to Royal Rumble, Cena and Sullivan were to go 1-on-1 at WrestleMania 35 with the feud kicking off at Chase Field where the NXT call-up would be taking out The Champ, thus costing him his spot in the 30-Man Rumble match.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted:
“The guy they wanted to make in the Superstar but he was not gonna win the Rumble was Lars Sullivan,” Meltzer said. “They really wanted him back last Monday and obviously, he was not back so I don’t know what’s going on. Well, he’s not ready to be back, that’s all. I don’t anticipate him not being with the company but as each week goes by, the idea of him wrestling John Cena gets slimmer and slimmer. It may even be out the window right now, I don’t know.”
Kurt Angle On Intergender Wrestling
During a recent Q&A session on Facebook, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle revealed whether intergender wrestling could work in the company.
“As long as a male doesn’t physically punch or kick a female. If it’s just wrestling, then it can work. I love it.”
Over the past few weeks, WWE has heavily teased intergender wrestling which has gotten the IWC to endlessly speculate on whether the company is headed in that direction.
