While it was initially believed that WWE would host Extreme Rules 2014 in Seattle, in order to capitalize on the popularity of Daniel Bryan at the moment, that has been confirmed to be false, as an announcement has now been made that the pay per view will be held in New Jersey instead.
With so many wrestling fans anxiously awaiting the announcement of his new wrestling promotion, Jeff Jarrett has decided to tease people by posting a video on Instagram. Thq quick video features some background music and the phrase "It's coming".
After doing a tryout with WWE this week, Kenta Kobayashi is headed back to Japan, where he will be making a big announcement at the next Pro Wrestling Noah show, in regards to his future plans in the industry. Many believe that he will be signing a developmental deal and moving to the USA.
While there are still plans by WWE to push him, Big E Langston has essentially been neglected by the creative department over the last couple of weeks because the writers simply have not come up with anything for his character to do with Mark Henry being off television.
Since the company wanted to sell the brutality of Brock Lesnar for his match against Big Show at Royal Rumble 2014, they had Mark Henry work an injury angle and take a couple of weeks off. It looks the former world champion is returning to WWE, possibly as soon as Monday Night Raw this week.
"I'm a performer at heart and want to have the best performance. You just find a place in your mind where there's a trigger and you can go from being happy to emotional in a heartbeat if you're there and I was mentally there. I had so many people call about that. Arsenio Hall, Big Show and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin [reached out]. Austin said he smelled a rat. I was like, 'If you smelled a rat, it's in your house.' Nobody saw that coming. He was like, 'I've been around too long kid. I could smell a rat in a woodpile.'"
Since he intends to retire after his current contract expires, Mark Henry has started looking at career opportunities within the company. The former World Heavyweight Champion has expressed interest in having his own show on the new WWE Network.
In order to sell the on screen injury that he suffered from Brock Lesnar on Monday Night Raw, Mark Henry wore an arm sling with his suit while he was backstage at the WWE Network press release event in Las Vegas last night.
