TMZ is now providing a little more details into the incident between Matt Hardy and Reby Sky at a motel during New Years Eve that led to their arrest. The gossip website is reporting that Reby was upset with Hardy because she thought he had been drinking or under the influences of drugs.
Reports spread yesterday about a new arrest warrant being issued for Ric Flair and noted that it might be a reason why he is not attending the Carolina Panthers game. However, it turns out that it is the same warrant that was issued last summer.
Tito Ortiz, who tried to restart his MMA career with Bellator and has made appearances for TNA on Impact Wrestling, was arrested this morning in Los Angeles after crashing his vehicle on the freeway. Police are investigating a possible DUI offense.
Tyson Tomko was arrested on robbery charges earlier today. He allegedly stole 210 tablets of Oxycodone from a CVS pharmacy. The police report also stated that the former WWE star immediately went into a restaurant bathroom and injected himself with the crushed up pills.
WWE has quietly released Judas Devlin, a developmental wrestler who was supposed to have been called up to the main roster to join Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan in the Wyatt Family stable. He has been removed from the official roster page for WWE NXT.
After a match filled with crowd pleasing signature spots, CM Punk and Daniel Bryan picked up the win over Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Bryan blasted Rowan with the running knee, as Punk pinned Harper after the Go 2 Sleep finisher.
At Hell in a Cell, Kane made his return after taking a couple of months off to work on the See No Evil sequel by attacking the Miz, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. The following night, though, shocked a lot of wrestling fans when he opted to be unmasked and joined Stephanie McMahon and the Authority.
With his recent DUI arrest and a fractured neck suffered during practice, it appears that Tito Ortiz could be done with Bellator. If that is the case, then it looks like the former UFC champion could be done with TNA as well, as Dixie Carter and her promotion would no longer be contractually obligated to utilize him.
"It's just so frustrating, because they just released something that was completely not what I said. It's pretty clear that Matt's been needing help, and the other day he was in a bad way and I called for help. Cops came, and all these reports are saying that I led them to some secret cave that contained prescription pills. They never found any prescription pills at all in the house, what they found was steroids. After having to go to the police station to sign all these papers, I come back to my house upside down, there is 5 men in my kitchen and I am being interrogated. Everything that they needed to find was already found. So it is just a whole bunch of hate mail: Reby you snitch, you're a rat. At the end of the day I just wanted Matt to get help, I called for Matt to get help, and guess what? He left this morning for WWE sponsored rehab. He is getting help."
Since the start, Bray Wyatt has done all of the talking to the Wyatt Family. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan generally just stand to the side and in the background during the interview segments. On Smackdown this week, though, Harper actually says a few words.

Randy Orton was able to retain the WWE championship at Royal Rumble 2014 by using an RKO to pin John Cena, who was distracted by the arrival of Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. The trio might have been going after Orton due to comments he made earlier in the night.
Rumor has it that John Cena will be removed from the main event scene following Royal Rumble 2014. Randy Orton is expected to be moved into a program with a new challenger, most likely to be Batista, while Cena is rumored to be joining Daniel Bryan in his battle against Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.
There is a strong push within WWE to put the tag team titles on the Wyatt Family. Initially, it was supposed to take place later in 2014, but several officials are pushing to make them champions before the Royal Rumble pay per view next month.
