In what seems to be an attempt to stay on good terms with the company in case he ever wants to do business with them again some day, Brutus Magnus has decided to clear the air on rumors about him leaving TNA. He stated that he never left them for GFW, as the promotion being launched by Jeff Jarrett is not in a position to offer anyone a long term contract. Magnus stated that he simply left the company because there wasn't enough money.

One of the most disappointed people in regards to the early retirement of Daniel Bryan from WWE was Shinsuke Nakamura. The two of them are very close friends. Nakamura flat out told the media in Japan that he was leaving the country and moving to the United States so that he can have an opportunity to work against Bryan. That was one of the biggest reasons why he was willing to walk away from New Japan and sign with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Since New Japan had short notice about Shinsuke Nakamura leaving the country to become a star with WWE, they were not able to book a bigger venue for his final match with the promotion. After 13 years of being a star there, there was a high demand from fans that wanted to say goodbye to Nakamura. That meant that scalpers were charging a whole lot more than the face value. Shinsuke signed a two year deal with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Over the weekend, Tommy Dreamer worked live events for WWE in Charleston and Canton. After that, he should be done with the company for the time being. The belief is that Dreamer will return to TNA and work backstage at Impact Wrestling. Tommy is said to be leaving World Wrestling Entertainment on really good terms, so it would not be impossible to see him making another return to the promotion some day.

Initially, Shinsuke Nakamura was supposed to drop the IWGP Intercontinental Championship before leaving New Japan and joining WWE. However, that does not appear to be happening any more because Nakamura has been stripped of his beloved IC title. Kenny Omega is going to battle a mystery opponent for the belt.
