When Seiya Sanada was written off of Impact Wrestling, the belief was that he would be done with the TNA. That has now been confirmed. However, the speculation that he was returning to Japan to work for Wrestle-1 again, that has been proven false. While that might still be in the plans later on in the future, Sanada is currently accepting booking from independent wrestling promoters across North America. He wants to stick around for a little bit.

As a sign of how desperately ROH wanted the Briscoes to stick around instead of leaving for WWE, there are rumors floating around right now that the front office has offered Jay Briscoe the lead booking position, which would enable him to keep he and his brother looking strong for this next portion of their careers. Combine that position of power with a higher salary than what the competition was offering, and you can understand why he stayed.

Those that watched his rise through WWE know that AJ Lee played a key part in the story for Daniel Bryan. You would figure that she would be mentioned in an autobiography by the guy. However, Bryan never once mentions her name on any of the pages. That, of course, has added more fuel to the fire on the rumors that there could be backstage heat between AJ and Brie Bella. It would explain her omission from the book.

Wanting to clear the air on the matter, Steve Austin took to his podcast interview show to address the rumors that he has backstage heat with WWE. He basically denied everything that is being said about the situation. Austin states that he was never scheduled to be on the same flight as the Undertaker. He simply was not booked for Wrestlemania. He also stated that there is no truth to the rumors of him having beef with Vince McMahon.

Once the decision was made by WWE to keep Michael Cole off of Monday Night Raw, there was a bit of a debate on how to replace him. Some wanted just JBL and Booker T to man the booth, but neither guy is a play by play commentator. There was a little bit of support for Brad Maddox to take the role, as he was backstage, but the front office ultimately decided to give Byron Saxton another chance to prove himself.

When it comes to being booked on the independent wrestling circuit, Jeff Jarrett has the best of both worlds. Not only does he get to perform for fans and be paid rather handsomely for it, he also gets the opportunity to recruit wrestlers to join GFW. In May, he is working a show in California that will also feature Carlito. The two of them are expected to have a little discussion about doing business together later on this year.

During the middle of May, New Japan and ROH are teaming up to put on a couple of shows. Two of them will be in Philadelphia at the old ECW arena, while the other two will be held in Toronto. To help make those events even more special, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kazuchika Okada will be featured on the card. No word yet on what matches they are being booked for, but the safe bet is that Ring of Honor will use their top stars against them.
