Daryl Takahashi Confirmed For ROH Global Wars

After an extended vacation to recover from his near death experience during the G1 Climax tournament, it looks like Daryl Takahashi is finally getting back to work. ROH has confirmed that Daryl will be at all four of next week’s Global Wars shows. He will accompany Hiromu Takahashi to the ring and be on commentary at all of the shows.

ROHWrestling.com has learned that Daryl Takahashi has agreed to terms and will be accompanying Hiromu Takahashi on the Global Wars Tour. In addition to accompanying the former IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion to the ring, by popular demand, Daryl will be joining commentary for all of Hiromu Takahashi’s matches barring any unanticipated injuries sustained at the hands of ROH and New Japan competitors.

Lita Talks WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles

During a recent interview, WWE Hall Of Famer Lita talked about the possibility of WWE adding a set of tag team titles to their Women’s Divisions.

“There has been talks of tag titles for the Women’s Division, and I think that I love that they first introduced the Money in the Bank briefcase, that’s been a long time coming and that adds an element of surprise within the title picture. I would love to see these rumored tag titles appear sooner than later, but for that to happen, I hope they bring up these women that are already at NXT or some women they’ve seen on the Mae Young Classic and expand the roster.”

For those that don’t remember, Sami worked in NXT from 2013-2015 as Solomon Crowe. His WWE run never really took off and he left the company after asking for his release back in November of 2015.

What’s Next for Jinder Mahal?

0

It’s been 5 months since Jinder Mahal shocked the world by becoming the WWE Champion. It’s been a long ride, and it hasn’t always been pleasant. Solid matches with Randy Orton have not been enough to save his reign. It’s been bogged down by tired promos that he repeated ad nauseam. Bad writing and an old-school but pedestrian wrestling style have undeniably stank up his reign. This Sunday, at Hell in a Cell, there will be some big changes, whether he retains or not. But we still have to ask: what is next for Jinder Mahal?

 

Dropping the WWE Championship

I hope that Jinder Mahal loses the title this Sunday. 140 days of Jinder is quite long, and I don’t think it should go on any longer. Besides, if (God forbid) he retains, who does he defend it against next? Sami Zayn is a non-entity, AJ Styles is locked in a feud with Baron Corbin, and Bobby Roode probably isn’t staying face for long.

It would be damaging for Shinsuke Nakamura to lose twice to Mahal. No one will take him seriously after that. Besides, you can’t have your heel be a racist and then win. You can only keep “building heat” for so long before people stop caring. And people have stopped caring. It would be a massive waste of the past three months to have Jinder defeat Shinsuke Nakamura.

I believe Mahal drops the title this Sunday. He gets his rematch at Survivor Series or Clash of Champions, and then poof, he’s gone from the title picture. But after that, what’s next for him? He can’t just drop down back to where he once was on the card. He’s not going back to being a jobber. He’ll be hanging around the upper reaches of the card for a while.

Tyson Kidd Loves New Role In WWE

0

Tyson Kidd apparently loves his new role with WWE, according to his wife Natalya.

While speaking with TV Insider, Natalya spoke about her husband’s new role with the company and mentnioned that they are both very happy with his position in WWE.

“Tyson came back to the show and jumped into a new role in WWE that he loves. So, we are both in happy places,” said Natalya. “But the first time I met Brie and Bryan’s Birdie I was telling my husband, ‘So much has changed for us. Birdie almost makes me want to have a baby.’ Granted, I’m not in that place in my life yet, but Birdie is like no other baby I ever met. She is the best of Bryan and Brie. She is just so good-natured. I’ve never seen her cry. She could give any girl baby fever.”

As previously noted, Kidd was forced to retire after a neck injury during a freak accident involving Samoa Joe’s muscle buster back in 2015. WWE then decided to offer Kidd a gig within the company earlier this year.

James Storm Shoots Down Rumors on Why He Didn’t Sign with WWE

0

While speaking to Wrestling Inc, James Storm responded to the rumors that he didn’t sign with WWE because the company reportedly gave him a low-ball offer. According to Storm, that wasn’t the case.

“A lot of people say it was money, but it wasn’t. It was a family thing,” Storm said. “Hunter told me they’d run 100-125 shows over the next two years. My wife wanted to have another kid, but she had to do shots, and I had to be at home a lot more. It was a decision: do I go and live this crazy of wrestling in the WWE or do I stay home and help my wife have another child that she wants? I decided that my family was what is really important to me.”

While appearing on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, Bret Hard had some words for Eric Bischoff and went as far as to say Bischoff is the worst loser maggot that ever go into wrestling.

“If you had passion for your matches or genius for wrestling talent, it didn’t mean anything to Eric Bischoff. He was the worst loser maggot that ever got into wrestling.”

Bret also reacted to Bischoff claims that Hard was like a “broken toy” during his time in WCW.

“I could strangle him when I hear him say that, because that is so not true. I was so on fire. I wanted to take the world on.“He was such an idiot. I would say all that right to him if he were sat next to you.”
