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.
Reports indicated that Vince McMahon was planning on hosting Extreme Rules 2014 in Seattle, but a representative from the Key Arena, the venue rumored to host the event, has issued a public statement, denying that WWE has booked the show there.
Since WWE changed up the plans and decided to put Extreme Rules 2014 in Seattle, it appears that the company is looking to build the pay per view event around Daniel Bryan, as management feels that he should be able to draw a massive reaction from his home crowd.
While he is willing to return for the period between the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania, Rob Van Dam is said to be unwilling to stick around with WWE until Extreme Rules. Management wants the former ECW star for the show, but it goes beyond the three month period that he wants to work.
Since his wedding to Maryse Ouellet is taking place later on this month, there is a very good chance that the current story line for the Miz is a way to write him off of television. Though he hasn't been penciled in for a match at Wrestlemania 30 yet, he's expected to return by then.
Miz and Maryse Ouellet are really trying to build a life together. Aside from getting married in the Bahamas in February, the couple also has been looking for a house to purchase. Since Miz has been on the road with WWE, his fiancee has been in charge of finding them a new home.
When WWE previously asked her about a return to the company, Maryse Ouellet turned them down, as she was busy working on some projects and preparing for her wedding with the Miz. The belief, though, is that the company will try to offer her a contract again after the wedding in February.
Since the two of them have traveled all over the world for WWE, Miz and Maryse wanted an exotic location for their upcoming wedding. It has now been revealed that the couple has chosen the Bahamas as the place to share their vows next month.
Maryse Ouellet held the WWE Divas Championship for 216 days straight, but she is about to be surpassed on that list by AJ Lee, who has now held the belt for 212 days straight. No word yet on whether or not WWE will make a big storyline out of that.
