Sean Waltman Says He’s A Big Fan of Brody King and Shares His Thoughts On His Recent Signing with Ring of Honor

I am a big fan of Brody’s. My first experience was running into him at Championship Wrestling From Hollywood when I went over there and I was like ‘How Come you’re not doing more with this guy?’ He’s great in the ring, he’s a good size heavyweight, he’s a big enough guy to where he can go out there and get it done. He’s a similar size as Walter and that means he can go out there and get it done with anyone and still work with smaller guys. That’s a really good size to be. And he’s great, and he’s straight edge, he doesn’t get messed up. People that are straight edge they still have their own issues but at least you don’t have to worry about drugs and alcohol being one of them.

Fred Rosser aka Darren Young Talks About Jake Hager aka Jack Swagger’s Reach After The Announcement of His Official MMA Debut in Bellator

I’ve been in the ring with him several times, he’s a horse and I say it all the time, he’s a horse. When you get hit by him you get rocked, not in a bad way but you get rocked. He’s got a long reach, his reach is long and I told him that to his face, I said I can’t wait to see you fight because you’re reach is so freaking long.

Fred Rosser aka Darren Young Talks About Bret Hart Helping Him and How He Would Still Like To Be Involved with WWE

Well this past year it’s been a little bit over a year since I’ve been released. I’ve been doing a lot more speaking engagements and a little bit of wrestling. Bret {Hart} was a big help, kinda helping me get with a reputable promoters to work with so it was a very limited schedule….I am 35 I still have a lot left in the tank but if I can be more of an ambassador with the company with there Be A Star campaign I am okay with that because I want to be able to contribute because they are still my family. I was able to go backstage recently, hang out with some of the guys.

Fred Rosser aka Darren Young and His Mom Talk About Coming Out To Each Other

Fred Rosser’s Mom: I came out to my son, I guess I must have been 27/28 and I came out to him and he said ‘Well mom I don’t care as long as you’re happy I still love you’ and I said ‘Oh. Okay.’ I  walked into my room, shut the door and I thought ‘Damn, that was easy.’

Fred Rosser: My mom came out first, I was fearful as a kid.I didn’t come out to her until I was 28 because back in the 80s science wasn’t as strong as it is now that a same sex couple could have kids and no one wants to let their mom down. She was so supportive….

Maria Kanellis Denies Reports She & Mike Asked For WWE Release



Mike Kanellis
Maria Kanellis denies she’s trying to get out of WWE!

In case you missed it, there have been a number of rumors surrounding the futures of some WWE Superstars following reports that The Revival requested their release from the company this past Monday (more on that here).

Among those rumored to have also asked for a release are Mike and Maria Kanellis (see the story here), who have been seen sparingly on WWE television since arriving (or returning in Maria’s case) at Money In The Bank 2017. Yesterday, Maria took to Twitter with a number of posts taking aim at the rumors and other speculation surrounding them, but didn’t specifically address whether or not she and Mike had tried getting out of their contract (find that here).

Today, Maria has now addressed the rumor directly via Instagram:

View this post on Instagram

I was not going to address this but I am getting phone calls and emails about it. I DID NOT ask for my release. Speculation and rumors are running rampant. Someone is playing all the wrestling news sites. It’s a game. I’ve been in professional wrestling for 15 years and what I do in front of the camera will only be a small part of the full story. I have relationships with fans, talent, producers, and their families. I have been in the hospital when people have been injured and backstage to hug someone that just had a great match. I don’t need to stir up shit. I don’t need to put others down. I am an imperfect human that has learned from past mistakes. Whoever is leaking rumors I pity you. And your desperate attempt for attention while disparaging my husband and I. I’m gonna take the weekend off of social media to hang out with my beautiful family and I suggest whoever it is does the same. Social media is not fact. It is fantasy, a nightmare, or a place for bullies. I want to use this for motivation to be positive everyday. I am still learning how to be a mom. I still fight postpartum depression. And I still try and become a better person everyday. I don’t need this made up extra stress. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and thank you for your support!!

Additionally, while it has not been confirmed either way, PWInsider is reporting that they have not been able to able to substantiate reports that Mike and Maria are looking for a way out of the WWE.

WWE News: Another Injured Superstar Set To Return Soon



Tye Dillinger
Tye Dillinger is nearing a return from injury!

With the recent rash of injuries to the WWE roster, we’ve begun seeing indications of a number of recovering Superstars getting closer to a return to action.

Recently, Superstars such as Sin Cara, Fandango and Sami Zayn have all been at the WWE Performance Center preparing for their comebacks. Even more recently, we heard that Rowan and Harper, the former SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers, will be back on the road with the company as soon as next week (read about that here).

Today, we have news on another Superstar who has been out with an injury as PWInsider is reporting that they have confirmed ‘The Perfect 10’ Tye Dillinger is close to a ring return. Dillinger has been out of action since October after suffering an unspecified hand injury at a SmackDown Live Event that required surgery. It’s being said that ‘The Perfect 10’ should be back on the road within “the next several weeks”.

At this time, it’s still not known exactly what Dillinger had surgery for. It also has not been indicated if he too has been down at the Performance Center in Orlando training, as that’s usually one of the final steps for any injured talents before receiving full clearance.
