On the Kevin Steen Show, Davey Richards was asked about his tryout with WWE. The newest TNA star stated that he did not want to sign the developmental deal because he was not keen on moving to Orlando. He also revealed that he turned down the contract, as opposed to being rejected as rumored.
"Sitting in CLT airport at 4:42am, thinking about how me vs Masato Tanaka at WrestleCon may very well be the craziest match of my career."
- Kevin Steen
Kevin Steen has been booked for a huge match at WrestleCon, which is taking place in April in New Orleans. The former ROH Heavyweight Champion will be wrestling Masato Tanaka, a Japanese star and ECW legend who is returning to America just for the event.
When Cody Rhodes and Goldust had a lot of momentum going for them, there were talks of bringing Brandi Rhodes up to the main roster, but those discussions have died down as of late, as WWE is focusing all of their attention on the new network, Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania.
While she is currently training at the performance center, WWE is expected to call Brandi Rhodes up as an on screen character first.
Brandi Rhodes has announced that she will be returning to WWE and will start training at the performance center on Monday.
Ring of Honor has issued a statement about Kevin Steen being banned from appearing on their shows. It also notes that anyone that attempts to help him will also be in trouble as well. While the story has some buzzing, it is simply a story line.
