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.

It looks like the Briscoes are stuck in ROH. The two brothers went to WWE to see if they could get an offer, which they did. Mark Briscoe and Jay Briscoe allowed their current company the opportunity to negotiate. Ring of Honor gave them a higher offer because they desperately needed the two of them to stick around. The two then went back to World Wrestling Entertainment, but the company refused to budge on their original offer.

Those of you that are hoping to see Ryan Nemeth making a return to WWE and joining his brother Dolph Ziggler on the main roster should probably exhale because it seems very unlikely to happen. Management had not expressed much interest in a comeback in the first place, but it is being said that since he spoke out about their abuse investigation of Bill DeMott that his chances have dramatically dropped to almost zero.

Apparently, WWE is still really bitter about the Young Bucks rejecting their offer last year. The brothers were asked to go in for a tryout because they had become one of the hottest acts on the independent wrestling circuit and internationally. However, Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson opted to remain free agents. Management is said to be furious because they are not used to performers not wanting to work for them.

A rather interesting revelation has been made about the Chris Benoit murder suicide recently. During an interview, Smith Hart, the older brother of Bret Hart and Owen Hart, revealed that Natalya had been staying at the Benoit house a little more than a week before the tragedy occurred. Hart also stated that his niece did not notice any tension between Benoit and his wife. He also stated that the Hart family does not believe that Benoit did it.

As many of you already know, WWE has a big developmental program that seeks out new performers constantly. Not everyone makes it through the doors, though. For those that are not quite ready for the developmental program, the front office has been suggesting that they attend the school ran by Bully Ray and Brother Devon as a way to get up to par. The former tag team champions are said to be top level trainers.

Brother Devon went on a bit of a rant recently when asked during an interview about the new generation. He stated that one of the biggest problems in the industry is that the young guys are being trained by people who have never made it to TNA or WWE. Devon feels that they are not being trained properly and are not taught to respect veterans. The former tag team champion feels that newcomers should seek out training from successful stars.
