Some new speculations have surfaced about why Justin Gabriel decided to request his release from the WWE. Reports have surfaced that his removal from the Royal Rumble was the straw that broke the camel's back. The belief is that he was one of the performers who was informed by management ahead of time that they were being removed. Others were told during the night of the event, as plans were repeatedly changed.

Blue Meanie in Royal Rumble

Out of all the ECW names that were rumored for the Royal Rumble this past weekend, a name that was heavily pushed backstage was the Blue Meanie. A lot of people in the company feel that he was popular enough to receive a very warm ovation from the heavily opinionated Philadelphia crowd. It would have also made sense because the former bWo member was going to be hosting a DVD release with Stevie Richards for WWE in the coming weeks.

Alberto Del Rio doing MMA

Rumors about Alberto Del Rio going to MMA were sparked not too long ago when reports surfaced that he had an offer on the table from Bellator. During a recent podcast interview with Pro Wrestling Illustrated, the former world heavyweight champion stated that the move was highly unlikely, as he is pleased with the money that he is making in professional wrestling at the moment. He does not completely rule out mixed martial arts, however.

Randy Orton removed

Another person that has been affected greatly by the big snow storm in the northeast is Randy Orton. He was initially scheduled to make his television return this week on Smackdown. However, WWE has been forced to cancel those plans because their television shows have been heavily modified this week. Orton is still expected to make his return before Fast Lane, where he is expected to have a match on the February pay per view.

Alberto Del Rio fined

One of the more interesting things that came out of the Pro Wrestling Illustrated podcast interview with Alberto Del Rio is the fact that WWE fines their performers if they were to stray from the scripted promos that the creative department provides for them during Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. The former world heavyweight champion stated that performers were basically like robots. He also revealed that he had been fined a couple of times.

Kevin Steen merchandise

A really great way to get on the good side of management is by being able to generate revenue from merchandise sales. That is one of the big reasons why WWE is quite pleased with Kevin Owens, a relative newcomer that has a huge following from the independent wrestling circuit. The first shirt that was produced for him has been selling really well at the live events. Management uses that as a gauge on who to push up the ladder.

Alex Riley to TNA

Since he is still young and has a bit of a following from his days as an on screen performer for WWE, the belief is that TNA would definitely be interested in offering Alex Riley a contract once he receives his rumored release. The latter company is no longer under a hiring freeze since they signed a long term deal with Destination America. They would love to add a couple of more recognizable faces, and Riley would not be as expensive as other free agents.

Alberto Del Rio case

During a recent interview, Alberto Del Rio explained that he signed with Lucha Underground and AAA out of loyalty. He stated that he chose them over a company like TNA because of what they did for him while he was in a legal fight with WWE. The Spanish promotions were the ones that introduced him to his lawyer. They also were the ones that covered the expenses, which was said to be quite high since they were battling a big corporation.
