WWE News and Rumors : WWE not buying Ring of Honor

0

It has been rumored that WWE was in all mood to buy Ring of Honor wrestling. But there has been a change of plans as ROH will not be sold to WWE, according to two people with direct knowledge of the situation. One high-ranking source said “there is no story here.”

During an interview earlier this month, ROH COO Joe Koff emphatically denied rumors of a potential sale.

“No. No, no, no,” Koff said. “It’s very flattering and humbling to us. It validates what we’ve done. A lot of their current performers and stars are ROH guys and we have their history. So maybe the content of the backstories of Kevin Steen before he became Kevin Owens or AJ Styles’ run in Ring of Honor, Tyler Black (aka Seth Rollins), Claudio (Castagnoli aka Cesaro) … all of the guys who have wrestled for us. We have their backstory and where it began… That’s our content.”

Koff also said the idea of WWE purchasing the ROH tape library is highly unlikely.

“I’m always open to any conversation,” said Koff. “We do business with them if they want to do a DVD or VOD if they need footage from early matches they do come to us. We are open to work with them on that basis because it doesn’t hurt us. It actually helps us.”

WWE Rumors: Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy Offered New WWE Contracts

0

 

According to The Pro Wrestling Sheet, we have learned that new contract offers have been extended, officially, to Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy by WWE, and all signs point to an inevitable return.

Last month, reports suggested that the two sides were in talks and sources from The Pro Wrestling Sheet confirmed that an actual deal is on the table for The Hardy Boyz to make a comeback in WWE.

Currently, ”Broken” Matt is currently locked up in a legal battle with Impact Wrestling over the use of his name/gimmick. Impact Wrestling is of the opinion that they should be paid when it’s used, but Hardy thinks otherwise. The brothers are also the current reigning defending Ring of Honor Tag Team Champions and they have signed a short-term deal with the promotion.

 

 

There’s no word on whether WWE Creative will use their “broken” characters, but the legal side of things doesn’t bode well for a chance of that happening immediately.

#WWE announced today that #EricBischoff will be the one to induct #DiamondDallasPage into the WWE Hall of Fame during WrestleMania 33 weekend.

Below is their full announcement:

Eric Bischoff to induct Diamond Dallas Page into the WWE Hall of Fame
Former Raw General Manager and WCW figurehead Eric Bischoff will induct his close friend, Diamond Dallas Page, into the WWE Hall of Fame on Friday, March 31, live on WWE Network.

“I’m honored,” Bischoff told WWE.com in an exclusive interview. “It puts a smile on my face because I know how much it means to him. This is the Holy Grail for him.”

* Page and Bischoff’s relationship dates to the late ’80s, when the two started out as part of WWE Hall of Famer Verne Gagne’s AWA – Bischoff as an announcer and DDP as the outlandish manager of Badd Company. The two eventually headed toward WCW, where Bischoff had an up-close view of DDP’s ascent from wrestling obscurity to superstardom as a champion of the people in WCW’s fight against the nWo.

“So many [wrestlers] are larger than life,” Bischoff said. “They look like they walked right off a movie screen and stepped into the arena. Diamond Dallas Page didn’t have that larger-than-life persona, but he had a different connection with the audience.”

“When [Page] finally hit pay dirt is when he finally shed all the over-the top-stuff,” he continued. “The bling and girls and cigars … [He] just became a real person, coming down from the crowd. That said, ‘I’m one of you.'”

* As Bischoff quickly learned, the persona Page projected in the ring worked because it was real.

“His journey [in life] is similar to his journey in the ring,” he said. “DDP was the common guy, the everyman, a blue-collar guy from New Jersey. He represented something that the average person could believe in, in a way that was a little unique. [People thought] ‘That could be me. If I could just get that break, work a little harder, I could be that guy.’ That’s a very inspirational quality to have.”

* Bischoff is incredibly excited to present DDP to the WWE Universe as a member of the Hall’s Class of 2017, though he admits a few nerves are bubbling up.

“It’s a little overwhelming, in some respects,” he said. “But I’ll save the reasons why for the ceremony itself, because they’re very personal and poignant.”

WWE Rumors: Big Update on Goldberg’s Future After WWE WrestleMania 33

0

 

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WrestleMania 33 might not be ”The Icon” Goldberg’s last hurrah in WWE, as the company views his current run and return as a big success. With the exception of only a few appearances, Goldberg has been a big fan favorite at WWE events, and that’s something which has impressed WWE officials to a large extent.

Consequently, WWE is open to the idea of working with Bill Goldberg following ”The Showcase of the Immortals” WrestleMania 33, and the door to his in-ring career in WWE is open. If the current reigning-defending WWE Universal Champion does indeed decide to work with the company post WrestleMania in Orlando, it will most likely be in a special box-office attraction capacity, which would see him work select PPV dates, similar to how Brock Lesnar’s deal works.

WWE RAW March 20, 2017 : RAW General Manager Mick Foley is FIRED

0

Raw general manager Mick Foley kicked off this week’s show to a sizable ovation, a prepared statement in his hand.

Foley thanked his superiors, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, for the opportunity they have given him. Continuing to read the statement, he admitted that he put that opportunity in jeopardy the moment he stuffed Mr. Socko in Triple H’s mouth.

To prevent any further issues, he decided to take a leave of absence from WWE.

The fans booed the decision harshly to the point that Foley tore up the cue cards he was reading from and tossed them aside. His pride would not allow him to stand there and demean himself.

This brought out McMahon, who proceeded to dress Foley down verbally before firing him on live television.

WWE announced the following:

JBL & Ron Simmons to induct Teddy Long into the WWE Hall of Fame

JBL and Ron Simmons will have the privilege of inducting their longtime friend and frequent travel companion, Teddy Long, into the WWE Hall of Fame.

“It’s an incredible honor,” JBL told WWE.com. “I’ve always thought that inducting someone into the WWE Hall of Fame is one of the greatest privileges you can get because it’s the honor of a lifetime for the person going in.”

JBL and Simmons’ close relationship with Long makes it all the more special. The brawlers known as The APA traveled the roads with Long and 2016 inductee, The Godfather.

“We rode thousands and thousands of miles together for years – me, Ron, Teddy and Godfather in one car,” JBL explained. “It’s real special. Ron’s in the Hall of Fame, Godfather’s in the Hall of Fame, and now Teddy is, too.

“I’m the only one left,” he joked.

Their friendship aside, JBL believes Long is one of the worthiest recipients of sports-entertainment’s ultimate honor.

“Teddy Long is a groundbreaker,” the former World Champion said. “He worked his way up from the ring crew to become the manager of one of the greatest tag teams of all time in Doom. He was a referee and became one of the most colorful general managers ever. Teddy Long has done it all. If there’s anybody deserving of going into the WWE Hall of Fame, it’s him.”

How do JBL & Ron Simmons plan to honor their friend as he takes his rightful place in sports-entertainment history? Find out during the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, airing live on WWE Network Friday, March 31, 2017 at 8 ET/5 PT!
