AJ Styles Re-sings With WWE
There has been rumor for quite some time now about the decision AJ Styles would make in choosing AEW or WWE. He revealed today he re-signed with WWE.

No surprise here, the best option for AJ Styles was to re-sign with WWE. They have done well with him creatively and he has been a big piece of the overall roster.
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson Pulled From Live Events?
A few weeks ago, I commented on the possibility that Gallows and Anderson were not going to resign with WWE. It is rumored they turned down a significant multi-year deal. According to WrestlingNewsCo, WWE has pulled the team from upcoming live events.
Gallows and Anderson do have a long association with Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks. You can make the speculation that the team will jump to AEW. For all the hate I, and many others, give AEW and the constant rumors of roster defections, Gallows and Anderson to AEW makes a whole world of sense. In all honesty, WWE creative really dropped the ball with this team when they made their debuts. A change of scenery will do this team some good, and add depth to the AEW tag team roster.
2019 Warrior Award Recipient Announced
With WrestleMania season and the Hall Of Fame fast approaching, the Warrior Award recipient for 2019 has been announced by WWE today. Sue Aitchison, who has worked for the company for 30 years at the corporate office, will be the recipient this year. Stephanie McMahon said:
“Sue has dedicated her entire career to helping Wish kids fulfill their dreams and putting smiles on countless families’ faces. Her heart and character epitomize the essence of the Warrior Award. She is an unsung hero who deserves to be recognized and immortalized in the WWE Hall of Fame”
This is what Warrior had originally talked about during his Hall Of Fame speech; people behind the scenes of WWE getting their much due recognition.
Dana Warrior Joins Creative Team Full Time
A few weeks ago in the shuffle, I discussed Dana Warrior working in an advisory role on the WWE creative team. According to PWInsider, officials are impressed with her, and she has been added to the creative team full time.
I posted a lengthy take about Warrior joining the creative team a few weeks back. You can read that HERE. My take still hasn’t changed on the situation, but we are all entitled to our opinions.
Kurt Angle’s WrestleMania Opponent Is…..
Kurt Angle announce on RAW that his WrestleMania opponenet for his retirement match will be none other than Baron Corbin.
Really? Seriously? Out of all the people on the current roster, they go with Baron Corbin? I mean sure, it makes sense from a storyline perspective but wow. I understand it not being the Undertaker, but no John Cena? Or no Shelton Benjamin? OR NO ANYONE ELSE ON THE FRIGGING ROSTER?????
