Since being released by TNA, Wes Brisco has worked a couple of shows on the independent wrestling circuit, and it appears that he is hoping to expand his horizon by working overseas. He already has a connection to New Japan through Luke Gallows, his former Aces and Eights teammate.
With all the controversy surrounding CM Punk and his departure from WWE, a rather interesting and possibly edited picture has surfaced online of the former world champion hanging out backstage with Karl Anderson, Prince Devitt, Luke Gallows and the Bullet Club, a stable making waves in Japan right now.
"There are so many Divas who have come and gone who have left their mark in WWE: Ivory, Jazz, Lita, etc. … Ric Flair says, "To be the man, you gotta beat the man," so if I had to choose one, it'd be the Diva who most people would consider the greatest Diva of all time, Trish Stratus. The only reason I'd choose her is because I know in my heart that I can put her down."
"That is probably my proudest accomplishment. While it is flattering when people say they want to grow up to be a wrestler because of me, I can appreciate and feel honor in that. However, it gives me the most joy when someone says that they were inspired by me to be them. I have pretty specific, quirky interests. I can enjoy talking with people who share similar interests with me, but what is far more attractive is someone knowing who they are. My whole life I have drawn inspiration from things so far removed from the events they actually inspired, but I think that's important. To find inspiration and drive in things you see and experience in life, but use those things not to copy or emulate, but to just be that little push or fire to give make you want to set out whatever is in your heart."
Luke Gallows, who has been thriving in Japan, is now engaged. The former WWE and TNA star made the announcement through a video that he is set to marry Amber O'Neal, a female professional wrestler on the independent wrestling circuit.
DOC, formerly known as Luke Gallows in WWE, is back from Japan for a break. He posted a picture on Twitter of his birthday celebration with his girlfriend. He will head back overseas for a big IWGP tag team title match in a few days.
It looks like the decision to tour Japan has become a good career move for DOC, as the man formerly known as Luke Gallows in WWE has become a bit of a star there. He is currently teaming with Karl Anderson as the Bullet Club.
Trish Stratus has enlisted the help of former WWE riva, Lita, to help promote her online store during Black Friday.
Lita has been extremely quiet on Twitter since rumors sprung up in September about the former WWE diva being pregnant.
Prior to becoming a WWE star, Lita worked for several years as a roadie for a band.
