Vampiro fired

Rumors are floating around right now that Vampiro might become the first well known personality to be fired from Lucha Underground. He is currently serving as a color commentator and has been providing management with a good amount of frustrations. The former WCW star is said to be unfamiliar with a lot of the basics of the job. He has even been confused as to who is a heel and who is a face. A change could be coming very soon.

Brock Lesnar discussions

Selective verbiage is being used by Dana White and Scott Coker when the topic of Brock Lesnar is brought up to them. Both guys have admitted that they have had discussions with the former world heavyweight champion. However, they also made sure to state that no actual negotiations have taken place. Neither guy wants to face tampering charges from WWE, as Lesnar is still under contract to the promotion until a few days after Wrestlemania.

Ricardo Rodriguez wins title

All that Ricardo Rodriguez wanted to do was be a wrestler. It seemingly is his biggest passion in life. He waited very patiently for WWE to give him that chance, working as an on screen character in the hopes of winning over management. That opportunity never came. After leaving the company, Rodriguez is now working for WWC. Not only have they allowed him to wrestle, they even rewarded him by making him the Puerto Rican Champion.

Justin Gabriel removed

Some new speculations have surfaced about why Justin Gabriel decided to request his release from the WWE. Reports have surfaced that his removal from the Royal Rumble was the straw that broke the camel's back. The belief is that he was one of the performers who was informed by management ahead of time that they were being removed. Others were told during the night of the event, as plans were repeatedly changed.

Blue Meanie in Royal Rumble

Out of all the ECW names that were rumored for the Royal Rumble this past weekend, a name that was heavily pushed backstage was the Blue Meanie. A lot of people in the company feel that he was popular enough to receive a very warm ovation from the heavily opinionated Philadelphia crowd. It would have also made sense because the former bWo member was going to be hosting a DVD release with Stevie Richards for WWE in the coming weeks.

Alberto Del Rio doing MMA

Rumors about Alberto Del Rio going to MMA were sparked not too long ago when reports surfaced that he had an offer on the table from Bellator. During a recent podcast interview with Pro Wrestling Illustrated, the former world heavyweight champion stated that the move was highly unlikely, as he is pleased with the money that he is making in professional wrestling at the moment. He does not completely rule out mixed martial arts, however.

Randy Orton removed

Another person that has been affected greatly by the big snow storm in the northeast is Randy Orton. He was initially scheduled to make his television return this week on Smackdown. However, WWE has been forced to cancel those plans because their television shows have been heavily modified this week. Orton is still expected to make his return before Fast Lane, where he is expected to have a match on the February pay per view.

Alberto Del Rio fined

One of the more interesting things that came out of the Pro Wrestling Illustrated podcast interview with Alberto Del Rio is the fact that WWE fines their performers if they were to stray from the scripted promos that the creative department provides for them during Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. The former world heavyweight champion stated that performers were basically like robots. He also revealed that he had been fined a couple of times.

Kevin Steen merchandise

A really great way to get on the good side of management is by being able to generate revenue from merchandise sales. That is one of the big reasons why WWE is quite pleased with Kevin Owens, a relative newcomer that has a huge following from the independent wrestling circuit. The first shirt that was produced for him has been selling really well at the live events. Management uses that as a gauge on who to push up the ladder.
