It is no secret that Triple H and Shawn Michaels are good friends in real life. Everyone also knows that the two of them share a powerful passion for pro wrestling. The fact that they are having a chat at ringside before NXT Takeover: San Antonio leads many to believe that they are having quite the discussion about the show. Many would love to be sitting right there next to them while listening to the knowledge that they are spitting. Michaels is said to still be trying to figure out how much of a role that he wants to take with WWE when it comes to the developmental process.
Back when they were all working full time schedules for WWE, members of the Kliq had plenty of moments to hang out with one another. Two decades later and life has taken them all on different paths. Triple H is preparing to take over World Wrestling Entertainment from Vince McMahon some day. Shawn Michaels has retired and spends a lot of time pursuing various hobbies. Kevin Nash still makes appearances here and there, but overall, he works whenever he pleases. A couple of months ago, the three of them found time to get together for a nice little sushi dinner.
Professional wrestlers often times will reinvent themselves to prevent from growing stale. Female performers do it a bit more frequently because their appearances are just as important as what they can do in the ring. Nikki Bella remains one of the most well known faces in WWE. Even she is not immune from growing stale. Nikki has decided to freshen things up by dying her hair. This time, she has gone with a jet black look that is simply amazing. She was sporting dark brown hair prior to his new look. Nikki should be debuting the new look as soon as the next episode of Monday Night Raw.
Part of the job of being a professional wrestler is that you spend a ridiculous amount of time traveling around the world. That means that random reunions take place all the time at the airports. The latest one involves Mick Foley. The WWE legend was traveling through LAX when he encountered some of the biggest stars from ROH. Foley decided to take a fun photo with Nick Jackson, Matt Jackson, Frankie Kazarian and Christopher Daniels. The airport in Los Angeles is a great place to run into professional wrestlers, as a lot of performers like living in southern California. They also fly out right before the weekends for work.
The Royal Rumble is considered one of the biggest pay per view events of the year for WWE. In what may be considered quite the controversy for certain fans, four part time performers are featured heavily in the front of the official poster. John Cena, Undertaker, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar are considered the big draws for the event. The full time performers are featured behind them, with Charlotte Flair, Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens on the second line of marketing. World Wrestling Entertainment is paying a bit more money than normal to make the Royal Rumble more interesting this year.
Undertaker made headlines when he returned to Monday Night Raw this week and informed Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley that he was entering himself into the Royal Rumble. The former world heavyweight champion wants a title shot at Wrestlemania 33. The segment was straight to the point, but WWE wanted to give fans a little more bang for their bucks. After the episode went off the air, Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho, the top two heels on the brand, were celebrating their United States Heavyweight Championship victory. It was not long before Undertaker came out and assaulted both men to send the fans home happy.
