Samoa Joe visits WWE

Rumors spread on Thursday that Samoa Joe met with WWE officials to negotiate a developmental contract.

Ross is in Orlando, where the performance center happens to be, to tape a show with Mick Foley for the Network. The belief is that Joe will sign a deal and start with NXT around June of 2015.

WWE banning moves

Due to the extremely negative reaction from the internet wrestling community, WWE has been denying the rumors that they are banning the Curb Stomp. Everyone that watched Seth Rollins wrestled this week saw that he used a new finishing move during his match against Dolph Ziggler. The front office has been telling people that they wanted Rollins to have a move that can be done on anyone. Ironically, the Curb Stomp also fit that bill.

Fandango new finisher

While it is a thing of beauty to behold, the flying leg drop that Fandango has been using as a finisher is causing some concerns backstage in WWE. Many feel that his body is taking a lot of damage by performing that move several nights a week. Rumors have it that officials are trying to come up with a new finishing move for the dancing star. He used a sit out suplex slam back when he was performing under the name of Johnny Curtis.

Extreme Rules replacement match

WWE revealed that Daniel Bryan might not be healthy enough to work his scheduled match against Wade Barrett at Extreme Rules on Sunday night. A replacement match was being discussed, and rumors are now saying that it will be a match between Bray Wyatt and Ryback. If Bryan is healthy enough to work, then the pay per view proceeds as normal. Wyatt would then get his much needed big win at Payback the following month.

Finn Balor waiting

Rumors have been floating around that Finn Balor was next in line to be called up to the main roster in WWE. However, it appears that he will have to wait at least another month. The front office has advertised him to work the upcoming NXT live event taking place in Albany on May 16. While there is still a chance that he could be promoted and be sent to the show, the belief is that Balor is going to be spending a couple of more weeks in developmental.

Daniel Bryan medical condition

Earlier in the week, it was reported that Daniel Bryan had actually suffered a concussion. That is in addition to his neck not holding up properly. WWE, however, is denying the rumors. They stated that the former world heavyweight champion did not suffer a concussion. They are not denying that some sort of injury was suffered, though. The company simply is opting to keep that a secret, in the hopes that they can downplay the seriousness of it all.

Steve Austin shirts pulled

An apparel website that works with wrestlers has reportedly been sent a cease and desist letter from WWE earlier this month. The two shirts in questions were designed for Steve Austin. As many of you already know, there have been rumors floating around of backstage heat between Austin and Vince McMahon. The belief is that the company is purposely doing this as a way of getting back at him for skipping out on Wrestlemania.

Jay Brisco booking ROH

As a sign of how desperately ROH wanted the Briscoes to stick around instead of leaving for WWE, there are rumors floating around right now that the front office has offered Jay Briscoe the lead booking position, which would enable him to keep he and his brother looking strong for this next portion of their careers. Combine that position of power with a higher salary than what the competition was offering, and you can understand why he stayed.

Daniel Bryan ignores AJ Lee

Those that watched his rise through WWE know that AJ Lee played a key part in the story for Daniel Bryan. You would figure that she would be mentioned in an autobiography by the guy. However, Bryan never once mentions her name on any of the pages. That, of course, has added more fuel to the fire on the rumors that there could be backstage heat between AJ and Brie Bella. It would explain her omission from the book.

Wade Barrett to Hollywood

Unless he changes his mind in the near future, Wade Barrett still intends on retiring from WWE when his current contract expires. The belief is that he wants to try his hands at Hollywood. Rumors are floating around that the reason why he signed on to star in Eliminators was so that he could gauge interest from the studios. There is always a chance that he could sign a contract extension and remain in professional wrestling if the interest is low.
