Punk To Return To WWE?
Some interesting news has been brought up by Dave Meltzer and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter regarding CM Punk. According to Meltzer, Punk’s agent reached out to FOX to see if there was interest in Punk hosting the reported WWE talk show that will air Tuesday nights on FS1. Meltzer also noted that people in AEW still believe that Punk is WWE bound.
I don’t think Punk will return to WWE or jump to AEW. But then again, all the Meltzer talk about Punk returning to WWE could be smokescreen for a potential AEW appearance. Who knows anymore.

Many in AEW have said that one of the focuses of the company is tag team wrestling. This is one of the areas the company that they can differentiate themselves from WWE, as WWE has lacked a focus in the tag team division for quite some time. I am curious to see what teams will be involved in this tournament. I would imagine you could pencil in both the Young Bucks and the Lucha Bros.
WWE Launches Podcast Network
Wrestling podcasts are very popular these days (cheap pop: the Chairshot has many great podcasts, and you should check them out) and WWE plans to branch out with its own podcast network. The Hollywood Report reports that the company is teaming up with Endeavor Audio to create a podcast network that will feature several series on their wrestlers.
I am interested to see what wrestlers will have a podcast, and what they will be about. Perhaps the Undertaker may have one. I also wonder if the Stone Cold Podcast, and the 83 Weeks Podcast hosted by Eric Bischoff will now fall under the WWE/Endeavor umbrella?
According to the official Twitter account of The Man, Becky Lynch, her and Seth Rollins were engaged Thursday.

Congrats to Rollins and Lynch! Truly WWE’s power couple. Could a potential Steph/HHH vs Rollins/Lynch rivalry be in the future ?
