A post on Twitter where Axl Rotten tries to clear up the confusion over comments that he made in regards to death matches. The former ECW star caused a little bit of controversy after his podcast interview with Chris Jericho because the internet wrestling community felt that he was disrespectful towards the thing that propelled his career.

A very interesting stat was just discovered. Up until May 25, 2015, Heath Slater had worked 44 matches. He lost all of them. On that fateful night in Long Island, the former leader of 3MB was paired up against Adam Rose, who had just 5 wins in 61 matches himself. Slater got the shocking victory, which was his first of the calendar year. There is a very good chance that this particular victory might end up being his only victory until 2016.

In a rather interesting development, WWE has decided to pull Kevin Owens from the upcoming series of live events. The NXT Heavyweight Champion was initially scheduled to work matches against John Cena at these shows. Since he has been pulled, the front office decided to add Wade Barrett as a replacement. He will more than likely work the matches against Cena. No word yet on why Owens was pulled for the weekend.

When WWE creates a DVD for a performer, they generally allow them some creative input. With Jerry Lawler, he is receiving a whole lot of input. The longtime commentator is being allowed to pick and choose which matches that he wants on the feature. Management is even paying him for the rights to use the footage, since Lawler owns most of the content from the Memphis territory. This is definitely a special case scenario.

Later on in July, WWE is planning on doing a quick tour of Japan, and they were hoping to bring along Hideo Itami for a couple of crowd pleasing matches. Unfortunately, though, a shoulder injury is going to rob everyone of the chance to see that happening. However, management is still going to be bringing Itami along for the ride, as they feel that a special guest appearance is better than nothing. He has been heavily involved in promoting the shows.

In a match that technically lasted an hour, Dean Ambrose defeated Luke Harper in the Extreme Rules street fight. The match started off the pay per view, but the two of them ended up in a car that sped away from the area. After a couple of matches took place, they came back to finish things up. Ambrose managed to pick up the pin fall victory after nailing Harper with his finishing move on top of a dozen or so steel chairs that were in the ring.

In yet another sign of how much of a company guy that he is, John Cena revealed that he has been working this past week with a fever. That has not prevented him from working matches for WWE and working out hard at the gym. The feeling is that he will not take time away from the road unless he is suffering from a major injury. Cena worked the tour of Europe despite receiving a pretty serious eye injury during a match with Cody Rhodes.

Some good news and bad news for the Usos. The good news is that Jey Uso successfully underwent surgery to repair a lot of injuries to his body. The bad news is that he is now required to miss approximately six months of action. That means that their involvement in the tag team division has to be halted. WWE might still use Jimmy Uso as a singles performer, but he will more than likely be relegated to working low profile matches.
