  • The news is that apparently, an important someone at Mattell (big wwe sponsor) was in an uproar after seeing the tie choking thing on a non-wrestler during the whole [N]vasion bit, and Bryan ended up being the sacrificial lamb to calm things down (we might view him as a god, but in WWE's world, hes easily replacable). If you notice, they didnt show the choking bit on any of the replays.

    Anyway, reports are that they might be interested in bringing him back in a few months when things cool off. But that also completely guts the [N]vasion storyline imo, as it takes away their main storyteller for the heart of the angle when actual wrestling needs to go on.

    At least thats the word going around atm.

      • He's got a 90 day no compete, wonder if TNA would snatch him up.

        • Theyve tried to sign him in the past, but he never wanted to leave ROH for anywhere. Then when he finally did decide to leave, WWE was open, so he went there. If WWE is no longer an option, I can definitely see it happening. But i could just as easily see WWE bringing him back after this cools down, if the news is in face accurate.

          In other news, Dixie Carter has promised not only a "surprise" at Slammiversary, but also an announcement coming soon that will "change TNA forever". One SpikeTV exec agreed with this statement, and then TNA insiders claimed that it was much bigger than say, a change in creative. I have no idea what it could be. Its being widely reported that TNA is courting Paul Heyman, and that he could be there soon, but reports are that Heyman isnt the announcement (though I guess he could be the surprise).

            An update on Daniel Bryan's firing: it was due to pressure from an outside source following Monday night's angle. The choking with the tie and spitting in John Cena's face were the two main sticking points, and Vince McMahon is said to have had no choice. It is almost a guarantee that this is not a work, since that would mean WWE had lied to everyone with any power in WWE. They have all been told that Daniel Bryan is gone for real.

            It seems very clear that Bryan is being used as a scapegoat. It also appears to me that someone from the outside (not WWE management) was the one who threw a fit and WWE had no choice but to fire him for now.

            To recap, here are the key bullet points:

            The Justin Roberts spot was deemed too violent and it led to the firing, in a call made by Vince, but forced upon him by an "outside force who is important"

            Complaints came in very quickly.

            The decision was explained to the merchandise and marketing people, PR team, company doctor before it was announced that it was a legit firing.

            The person who complained was someone from the "outside, important to the company"

            Danielson is being called a "scapegoat"

            No timetable has been given, but he was said to be left with the impression that he would be welcomed back at a later time once things pass over.

            Danielson is now looking for indy dates.

            Danielson has a 90 day no-compete clause.

            With respect to the possibility of Vince working his own employees, he's definitely capable of it, and a much more "insane" situation is currently going on with a much bigger name than Danielson in WWE right now.

            Sources in WWE believe they will lose him to TNA, One source said they just "made a TNA main eventer"

              • Stuff like Danielson getting fired makes me miss the old days before the PG rating. I understand why things are PG, but I damn sure don't like it.

                  I think things will cool down once Linda loses her bid for Senator.


                  • I wish WWE would at least go PG-13 and make it much more similar to the additude era

                      WWE has come to terms on the release of NXT first season rookie Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) as of today June 11, 2010. We wish Daniel Bryan the best in all future endeavors.
                      Do we start to riot now or later?


                      • I love the Attitude Era as much as anyone, but having it PG isn't all bad. Its forced WWE to figure out new ways to do things, having different characters (Do you think Chris Jericho's heel act now would've worked in 2000?), develop storylines further without random swerves for no reason and focus on the in-ring product and not resort to needless blood and unprotected chair shots when they're not always neccessary.

                        • I don't know about anyone else, but I am enjoying Vince getting NXT into the heal story lines.


                          • This picture makes me laugh a little more than it should..


                            • That's the standard reaction to Mysterio winning the title.
