Bad news for Daniel Bryan; will he ever return to WWE?


The WWE universe is crying to see superstar Daniel Bryan return to the ring after a one-year gap. Since Bryan left back in 2015, all his crazy fans have been busy making predictions about his comeback.

But, the fans could be in a dilemma with reports claiming the superstar’s comeback is bleak. According to a report released by Wrestling news, Dr. Joseph Maroon, the head of WWE’s medical department has advised Bryan to never ever step in the ring again, which means to a premature end to his career.

The reason behind Bryan’s ill-fated career is his frequent concussions, which he suffered last year and once in 2015. In spite of his personal doctor clearing him to wrestle, Bryan has been marred with injuries in the past two years and is really very frustrated about them.

The actual problem lies with the chairman, Vince McMahon, who is strictly against the idea of Bryan entering the ring for a fight again. At the moment, Vince is totally confused over the fact that if he stops the ‘Yes movement’ leader from taking the center-stage, he stands the chance of losing a brilliant wrestler, one who is filthy popular.

Stating to walk out if his demands are not fulfilled, Bryan, who has been out since eight months, may not renew his contract with WWE if they not allow him to wrestle again. The whole and soul decision stays with Vince, and a wise decision to reclaim the renowned wrestler will be every pro-wrestling fan’s cry.

After paying a visit to India, Bryan will be a part of the upcoming promotional tours which are in Japan, Australia, and many others.

For now, it is a huge blow for both Bryan and his fans!

bill goldberg on recently receiving a offer from TNA


Bill Goldberg recently spoke with Scott Fishman of Channel Guide Magazine to promote the “Check Point” movie that comes out on Memorial Day 2016. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

A possible return to the ring:

“Everything has to be taken into consideration if I had another match. I was very lucky in that I did not kill myself during my tenure in the wrestling world. My body still can take some serious abuse as we see with me training Muay Thai kickboxing three days a week. As long as I got this little boy with a desire to see me do something in the ring, there is the idea of never say never.”

He’s received no offers from WWE but did get a call from TNA recently:

“When something supersedes your business sense, it has to be ego or something ridiculous. I surely am not going to miss a bit of sleep if I don’t get a phone call from them. I just got contacted by TNA a couple of days ago. I don’t know. They want to promote the movie since one of my adversaries in the film is Bram (Thomas Latimer), who works for them. I’m greatly appreciative they want to help the movie out. Now at the end of the day, promoting the movie is one thing, but getting a guy like Goldberg in your wrestling organization is a completely different story. We’ll see.”

Goldberg also discussed Ronda Rousey getting knocked out at UFC 193

why wwe didnt panic over seth rollins injurie


In regards to Seth Rollins going down with an injury this month, it may have seemed like WWE officials were in panic mode or running around “like a chicken with its head cut off” but that is not the case, according to PWInsider.

WWE officials knew where they wanted to go with the WWE World Heavyweight Title, with Roman Reigns as champion going into WrestleMania 32 season, and that is still the direction they are going. There was no real panic among WWE higher-ups as they were already close to getting the title on Reigns.

Reigns was scheduled to win the title at Survivor Series and then the rematch would have taken place in a standard TLC match as the main event of the December TLC pay-per-view, where Reigns would have retained.

In regards to reports that the Rollins injury likely changed major WrestleMania 32 plans, word is that there has not been a real shake-up in plans. WWE officials have 3 or 4 main event matches set in stone and Rollins being out won’t change those plans. This indicates that they were not planning on having Rollins in a real main event position at WrestleMania 32.
