  1. Jericho said it years ago in an interview, but Ryback being shoved into the cell to replace Cena forced WWE to either have him beat Punk for the title or it would’ve ruined his career, and man was he right. Ryback never was booked strongly after that and his dumb heel turn in 2013 was the nail in the coffin. I remember one of his final matches where he came out in the "pre-show" belt, mocked the hostile Chicago crowd with Punk mannerisms, has a decent match and saved Kalisto's life. I always had a soft appreciation for The Big Guy and I was hoping that night would give him another boost of momentum. Then he left the company. So now the year is 2020 and the independent wrestling scene is heating up. Television deals are shooting left and right. If Ryback is able to make good and return this year where would you like to see the big guy end up? My first thought was of course NWA. I feel with their respect for older talent on that show he would fit right in and the relaxed schedule would fit his transition back into the ring.
  2. UFC Reportedly Offered Kurt Angle Deals on Two Separate Occasions
  3. Ember Moon Details How She Suffered Her Achilles Injury Sad how a throwaway 24/7 segment was the cause of her injury. I wonder if that is why the segments have died down in their chaos as of late? You don't see many or any running across the stadium moments these days. An Achilles tear usually isn't a sudden injury like a torn quad or an ACL injury, it's usually the accumulation of wear and tear. You'll see a lot immediately after someone tears an Achilles, they look and reach back because it feels like somebody hit them when in fact it's the tendon rolling up back in the leg. Injuries are unpredictable like that. Remember Jeff Hardy was jumping off ladders and cages through tables for 25 years with no major injuries Then Jeff Hardy decides to ride his dirtbike at home for 5 minutes and ends up with broken legs.
  4. Each year, there is usually a time that WWE begins releasing a number of superstars in their annual “spring cleaning.” They haven't actually done a large scale talent cull since 2016. It's (arguably) far easier for them to just wait for people who want to leave to let the clock run down their contracts as opposed to firing them. That itself has now become even tighter with competition heating up in a niche wrestling market we have AEW, ROH, NJPW, hell in MLW trying to make their own version of exclusive deals. All that has lead to the reaction of WWE to sign who they can or who they think might actually make an impact for another competing company and locking them down for multiple year deals. We know the history. WWE in the past have been in a position where they have cleaned out superstars they don't see any future storylines for, want to refresh the roster ect. Various behind the curtain reasons as to why they might be released and you can speculate as to the recent names such as Luke Harper (asked for his release) The Ascension (non-value) but with the recent Kalisot re-signing i've had the thought about the long term impact all this long term contracts will have on the product and wanted to open up the question to see if it was warranted. Now instead of hitting refresh on talent WWE are holding on to everyone they feel worthy enough long term, if the company are locking down everyone for 5 years out of a fear of competition will that be worrisome in hand for the on air product? Two sides of the hand. Talent are finally given breaks throughout the year because the company have the luxury of using different key talent at different points or they'll start to feel in a stalemate since they are stuck trying to feature talent.
  5. Remember that time on Twitter, Kalisto put out "10 months, Free Agent"? At this point, it feels like if you don't make a song and dance when your contract is coming up, you're just robbing yourself of income. Even if everyone involved knows the score. I honestly thought though that he would be following Sin Cara out of the door and taking his chance in Mexico or on the independents. Before he joined FCW/NXT he actually had some momentum behind him and i feel in WWE he hasn't really been able to live up to that the past two years. Though he is a former United States Champion which is more than a lot of other stars in the company will accomplish i guess this re-signing is both a surprise and not a surprise. Surprise that WWE sees value in Kalisto still? Will be interesting if his position changes.

  8. So this is where the dogfood is heading, I'm guessing? Choosing a match stipulation that involves that wouldn't surprise me. As Micheal Cole once said..please stop the pain. I'd be happy to never see Roman Reigns anD Baron Corbin on the same screen for quite a while after this. I understand the position WWE is in with them wanting the best reactions for Reigns at the moment and because no one in the crowd likes Corbin that is working but it can get tired and i feel we're all a bit exhausted at this point. Imagine this had been a Reigns vs Roode/Ziggler feud only. Switching PPVs with the two of them. Regardless i'm glad to see Roode back on TV after his suspension. On the bright side we get to see the return of John Morrison which is all i needed to hear. I was pretty happy seeing the fireworks and song join him when he made his entrance since as we know from Shelton Benjmain and Bobby Lashley the company like to strip away some of their old attachments on return. I know for some people they had hoped Morrison might be a singles start to begin with but for the tag team division a Miz & Morrison reunion is a blessing. Always nice to see Kane as well though i wonder what he might be doing. I agree with Bart that him popping out of no where would've been more exciting but maybe they want people tuning in when he puts someone over tonight. Who? Not sure.
  9. I'm a lapsed watcher of UFC, keeping my eye on the pulse but this return from Conor has my hyped. Against Diaz he said that he didn't feel his power was there at 170, though how much of that was just Diaz being able to eat shots like a champ I don't know. The added bulk is interesting to me though with how it might affect his speed. I'd still have him as the favourite against Cowboy but who knows. If a motivated Conor can get the finish against Cowboy at 170lb , How do you guys fair he would do against Masvidal with his current physique?

    As Cody turns his head away from the ring, the men who have out poured from the locker room to plead their case and declare themselves the future victor of the Royal Rumble, future champions, a commotion is heard amongst the Carnage audience as shrill scream comes from the distant. Yelling and rushing can be seen in the distance of the cameras who move to an eagle eye shot of the arena to take a glance of what is causing the ruckus. A maze of people can be seen before the camera was able to pan up to reveal the masked Ghouls slowly popping up from their seats in the audience. Unidentifiable they stay focused on the ring ahead as the Royal Rumble participants understand who this is a sign of. For the cunning eyes of the viewer who would be seeing this, most of the staff started to give perplexed looks of confusion towards the masked men before they simply speculating on what is to come. The monsters of this world still roam freely as fog begins to rise from underneath the stage, pouring out from the back. Cody Cage is caught facing two Ghouls, two men of different proportions as they lunge forward at the confident superstar. Simultaneously, as the Brendenplayz audience handle the infection, two of ghouls rise out from under the floor as they make their way down to the men surrounding the ring. Sometimes, it is how you shine in the darkness during other people's misery that is remembered as Lord North, Dr. X and CJ Sellers faced with gruesome and determined opposition on behalf of The Revenant. They begin to strike..

    Atop a rocky outcropping, with the wind continuing its gentle drift through his hair and onto his cold skin, the camera watched as the clouds drifted past The Revenant. His smile painted on, as if the beautiful landscape that he saw before him wasn’t achieving what he desired. He placed his hand onto the ground, seating himself on the stones as he gazed into the abyss of mother nature. The beauty of the land. It was majestic. This is a familiar scenery to his time off after losing the BPZ North American Championship but tonight was different. Tonight was more about appreciating what we have in front of us. Had his mind been wandering for hours into darker places he might have found it all so much less beautiful but there is something golden in The Revenant's horizon. Looking down towards the beautiful river, so clear you could see the bottom, the trees surrounding him a luscious green. Arius holds a dying leaf in his hands as it crumbles under a brief movement. The flakes drifting off the edge in the breeze Birth and Death are words we chose to describe the doorways in and out of a cycle. Just like the natural order, the natural life around us dying and reviving, history repeats itself. Firstly, for us it begins as tragedy, secondly as a farce.. Arius lets out a soft laugh at his gloom comments The truth doesn't stray far from that. Disregard for the past will never do us any good. Without it we cannot know truly who we are. Arius picks up a stick as he begins to draw foreign symbols in the dirt beside him As we move forward through our lives, our career..some pieces of our history will remain, etched in stone and marbled for the next generation to ponder. It carries on in the minds of others, the perception that shapes their reality. To change their minds, to reshape their perspective...is a task beyond our control and despite our individual efforts to move on, for others, I understand moving on is an impossibility. Night of Legends..Captains of our soul. Arius finishes drawing the Invictus lion in the dirt They say beautiful souls are shaped by ugly experiences and feeling the grasp of the BPZ Tag Team Championships so close to the tip of my fingers..tortuous at the heart. I feel the emotions. Bitter but alive. Without allowing it to devour my motivation, In these moments we must remember that success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that rests our character. Creed you brought out a fight within us that we desired and for that you have my admiration as victors. But know despite your best Nostradamus impressions that Invictus lives on, the name embroidered on to our sleeves and one day soon you'll hear from us again. Today? We focus on what is ahead, think on our past to help train ourselves for the future. Arius smirks as he throws the stick over the cliff Hindsight is the greatest and yet worst tool we own isn't it? The scales of balance Arius picks up two weighted stones as he holds them to either side of himself The ability to recognise our mistakes and learn from them on one hand Arius tilts his hand but on the other, we’re faced with regret; the things that we would rather change and ponder “what if”.the weights balances evenly again. It is easy to bury them, men can deny their faults without a second thought. Their belief in their invincibility is more important than their mortal reality Arius throws the stones over the edge into the water below chinks in our armour plastered over with cheap material that crumbles as its chipped away at over time. As the wise "scholars" of my childhood would say “Everything was such a damned nice idea when it was an idea!” Arius smirks as he reflects on these memories The truth is I have no desire to suffer twice, in reality and then in retrospect but..we must embrace our failings, embrace our imperfections, embrace our errors in order to grow. I’ve prided myself on handling the past. The shortcomings that stopped me from success sooner, that have led to misconceptions. And yet I don’t have regret because without them I wouldn’t be as strong as I am today ahead of this monumental event. The video overlays footage of Arius during his first trial in the BPZ Royal Rumble 2019. The eyes of The Revenant closed as he reflects on his experiences I’ve been preparing for a year now. That first taste of the thrill, the adrenaline and endurance needed. I saw on the horizon since that loss what I've been seeking...but i’m not blind to see others have the same fire and focus. Stars Bailey, Bart, Hans Clayton, all priming themselves for success. Arius begins making his way down the path as he continues to speak to the audience I’m far too familiar to the truth, our primal instinct, especially in times of desperation, still shows. It's all about survival of the fittest. Kill or be killed. Every man for himself. And with each passing day, a man gets smarter, thinking of new ways to outwit his opposition, and steal what they have left to keep for himself. That's what everyone expects you to do, especially in an event like the Royal Rumble... in a moment individuals decide whom they must target, or steer clear from. Will they eliminate those who are weak so they won't have a problem later, or take out the biggest threat in order to be left with the "lesser" performers and stand tall in the end as the winner? Will they stay out of the way throughout the match and have their opponents kill and eliminate each other before they jump back in the last minute, or actively fight to display their dominance willing to take the risk in the process? Strategy dictated by the second. Mistakes looming over you as you look up from the floor below, the lights blinding. The sun blares into the lens of the camera as the scene transitions to Arius nearing the bottom of the mountain, now standing next to the river which trickles into a creek When it comes to being in that ring, it is a new exhibition, a new pageantry of marvels. Royal Rumble will be one of my greatest showcases, the leading portrait of a successful defence and a successful victory. Duality in The Revenant. When it comes to the BPZ Intercontinental Championship I’m not done building the legacy that this title has come to have. When it was won by me inside that hellish Elimination Chamber a sense of pride came over me to elevate it and what would be a grander stage than resting around my waist entering a World Heavyweight Championship opportunity? I know in my heart where my destiny rests. the man i must face...but destiny is a matter of choice, not chance, and he will need to fight the same path to reach our shared destination. Despite this division being unsettling in a way, up and down the company fatigue is wearing, champions are stripped, suspended and as athletes, as artists, we soon have to question what our next move is. Carnage has been the most fitting it has ever been as a home for the unbridled chaos that remains within...but there's a sense of beauty in it all. We shouldn't look at this environment as a desolate place that's been burned to the ground, but a blank canvas for us to take advantage of. If you do reap what you sow, then I shouldn't look at being champion as to stand idle and wait for opportunities to come falling by my feet because after all, I'm still the pursuer. And at BPZ Royal Rumble the first step is taken the pursue what i desire. The Revenant, The Judge, The Seeker is coming for the World Heavyweight Championship, for Royal Rumble success. For absolution. Hineni, hineni
