Why WWE Star and New Dad Daniel Bryan Is Focusing on Taking Care of Wife Brie Bella: ‘I Can’t Breastfeed’

21 June 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Daniel Bryan made his return to SmackDown Live on Tuesday night, but the pro-wrestler-turned-General-Manager admits much of his paternity leave was spent taking care of wife Brie Bella more so than their new daughter.

“Shane has three boys, and he is so proud to be a father,” Bryan told Sports Illustrated of fellow WWE personality Shane McMahon, adding of the advice the latter has given him, “He talked to me a lot about how the most important thing as a father is to treat your wife the best you possibly can.”

Explains Bryan, 36, “Brie is taking care of the baby because I can’t breastfeed, »

Ex Tna stars debut, Women’s Mitb match fail – WWE Money in the Bank 2017 review

19 June 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Hype Bros beat The Colons

Zack Ryder got the winning pin for his in-ring return after seven months out with injury, tagging with Mojo Rawley to beat The Colons on the preshow. A lot of people reckon a heel turn is in their future. I personally don’t see it, mainly because the last six months of Rawley’s character development appears now not to have happened.

Women’s Money in the Bank Match

The pay-per-view’s main card, however, was opened by the first women’s Money in the Bank match in history – a landmark achievement in the ongoing ‘Women’s Revolution’, the latest accolade to put female wrestling on par with how the men’s division is treated and…it was won by a man.

Charlotte, Tamina, Becky Lynch, Carmella and Natalya worked very hard up until the finish, »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Roman Reigns Summerslam Announcement

Usually Roman Reigns not appearing on an episode of Monday Night Raw would be seen as a positive for anti-Big Dawg fans. Rather forebodingly for them, however, a promo package ran in his place, advertising his Summerslam announcement for the following week’s show.

The announcement must be pretty substantial, as WWE see fit to reveal it eight weeks before Summerslam’s 20th August date, and three weeks before Raw’s next pay-per-view – which is still called Great Balls of Fire.

Roman doesn’t currently have a storyline feud coming out of Extreme Rules, and this ‘announcement’ could be to set up his next program over the coming months. Whatever the announcement is, Roman is already warning that it’s probably going to annoy us:

Not everyone is going to like what I say, »

Roman Reigns shoots on WWE fans, Rusev returning to WWE – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

#PushSinCara

Life can be tough as a WWE undercard wrestler, destined for throwaway pre-show matches and never ending feuds with Titus O’Neil. But listen up, jobbers – this one simple trick will transform your career!

Rusev was previously just a former-us champion who had feuded with John Cena and Roman Reigns. But after just several months of the PushRusev hashtag on Twitter, he’s had his WWE Title feud plans scrapped in favour of Jinder Mahal, and has been split up from his real-life wife Lana!

Social media! Tell WWE which characters you’re invested in, so they can act accordingly!

Like Zack Ryder. He was once just a super-over YouTube personality, who fans enjoyed so much, they chanted for him over The Rock! Now with the power of getting yourself over, he’s in a »

John Cena talks burying WWE wrestlers, cryptic Rusev tweet… – WrestleTalk News

8 June 2017 10:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Rusev’s story since March has been a strange one. He was written off TV by getting buried by Big Show at Fastlane so he could undergo minor surgery, but this came at the same time as rumours he had backstage heat for changing his haircut.

Then he was drafted to Smackdown in the Superstar Shake-Up where he was split from his real-life wife Lana for her to pursue a new gimmick. Rusev later appeared via video messages announcing he’ll appear on the Backlash go-home episode to confront Shane McMahon about getting a Money in the Bank title match.

Apparently the plan was for him to face Randy Orton at the pay-per-view, but this changed when creative decided Jinder Mahal would win the WWE Championship the week of his match. This has left Rusev without a storyline on Smackdown, »

The best thing in WWE right now..? – WWE Smackdown Live, June 6, 2017 review

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Lana-lina Debuts

Shane McMahon opened the show introducing all five women in the ladies’ Money in the Bank match, and then unveiled the prize at the top of the ladder: a white briefcase with gold trimmings. Considering WWE’s patchy sexist past, I’m glad it wasn’t a handbag.

After Naomi spoke about how ‘lit’ this match is going to be – whatever that means – Lana-lina debuted her new gimmick for the first time since moving to Smackdown. Her sexualised dancer character jarred with the merit-based wrestlers around her, acting as a throwback to the Diva era, but at least WWE are playing on the juxtaposition – with the others laughing at Lana-lina as she put herself forward for Money in the Bank. It’s a shame she’s still using the Russian accent. »

WWE removes Alexa Bliss WWE Raw segment, WWE star shoots on Raw – WrestleTalk News

31 May 2017 9:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

In my Raw review yesterday, a few people criticised me for calling Alexa Bliss’ ‘Bayley…This Is Your Life’ sketch the worst WWE segment of 2017 so far, with one Lucas Ward commenting:

“Clickbate! It was not the worst segment in 2017, it was the worst of all time!”

Going by their YouTube channel, WWE appears to agree.

Rather than posting any footage from the in-ring promo on YouTube – like they do with everything else they produce – WWE only posted the aftermath where Bayley and Alexa brawled over a kendo stick.

That didn’t stop the WWE Universe providing feedback on the segment, though, with the comments section for ‘Alexa Bliss takes Bayley on a painful trip down Memory Lane’ pulling exactly zero punches:

Academy Award winner Al Pacino (at least, that’s his YouTube account name) wrote: “Hands down, »

Kevin Owens’ Highlight Reel: Shinsuke Nakamura

Shinsuke Nakamura is a fantastic wrestler, has incredible charisma and an awesome theme song. His only weakness is cutting promos. Booking knowledge dictates you should disguise that flaw while emphasising his strengths. Not for WWE! Where he is currently destined for week after week of in-ring promos.

Baron Corbin and Sami Zayn soon interrupted Kevin Owen’s Highlight Reel segment with Nakamura, and – holla, holla – you know where this is going.

Sami Zayn & Shinsuke Nakamura beat Kevin Owens & Baron Corbin

The four had a really fun TV tag match, where Nakamura picked up the win after Owens and Corbin accidentally clashed with each other. That means Nakamura has won three out of his three main roster matches, two of them with pins on Ko – setting up a United States title match down the line. »

Big Tna Impact Wrestling mistake, why Rusev hasn’t been on WWE – WrestleTalk News

30 May 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Memorial Day won’t just be blamed for Monday Night Raw’s inevitably low ratings, it’s also now the reason behind some fan’s anger towards R-Truth.

In honor of the armed forces, Goldust broke his heel character to tweet: 

#RemeberTheFallen

Dustin Rhodes (@Goldust) May 29, 2017

Presumably still enraged by his Golden Truth tag team partner turning on him, R-Truth replied to the non-kayfabe tweet very much in fake pro wrestling mode:

@Goldust Remember I'm gone getcha

— WWE R-Truth (@RonKillings) May 29, 2017

A few fans on Twitter found the message disrespectful, but nobody complained about Braun Strowman’s Us army-mocking Instagram post yesterday!

But that’s probably because we’re all terrified of him.

Rusev was last seen in a WWE ring on the 5th March at the Raw-exclusive pay-per-view Fastlane, where he was written off TV to undergo surgery. »

Major Smackdown news leaked? WWE stars return – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Triple H has now confirmed on Twitter that WWE’s long-reported Women’s Tournament is actually happening, along with the competition’s name: The Mae Young Classic.

Dave Meltzer has pointed out on Twitter the 32-woman tournament is most likely so named because Mae Young, who passed away in 2014, and Stephanie McMahon were very close – which is probably why the competition wasn’t rightfully named the Eva Marie Cup.

Jinder Mahal Arrives

‘No Carbs’ Jinder Mahal opened Smackdown, arriving backstage in a limo, complete with 4×4, fancy entrance carpet and a convoy of police on motorcycles. The WWE machine is so behind Jinder, he even got Triple H’s Wrestlemania entrance.

Money in the Bank Lineup Revealed

Shane McMahon opened the actual show in front of the live crowd, announcing the lineup for Smackdown’s next pay-per-view, Money in the Bank. Randy Orton will get his WWE Championship rematch against Jinder, and Aj Styles, Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Shinsuke Nakamura and, after some complaining to McMahon, Kevin Owens will compete in the Money in the Bank ladder match match.

That’s a hell of a lineup right there. 

And Baron Corbin.

WWE Summerslam plans revealed? WWE star leaving! – WrestleTalk News

17 May 2017 3:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

On last week’s Smackdown Live, Rusev announced he’ll appear on this week’s episode to confront Shane McMahon. The Bulgarian Brute has been out with injury since February – where he’s since found himself both drafted to Smackdown and split up from his long-time manager Lana – and now he’s demanding a championship opportunity at Money in the Bank on his return.

It turns out, though, Lana was responsible for more than just wearing red power suits and call cities by the wrong name. She also appears to have been managing Rusev’s diary, as he’s missed his first Smackdown appearance, not showing up at all on last night’s episode.

Why was he absent? A sporting event scheduling clash, of course.

Sorry #SmackDownLIVE I had to make the @PredsNHL game. See you when I see you. »

Daniel Bryan hopes for 2018 wrestling return, big WWE return announced – WrestleTalk News

12 May 2017 12:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

In an interview with Inside The Ropes, seemingly recorded over Wrestlemania weekend, Kenny McIntosh asked Daniel Bryan when his contract is up with WWE – health depending – will he give management the ultimatum: either let me wrestle for you, or I’ll go and wrestle somewhere else.

“Yeah. I understand why they won’t let me wrestle. It’s a liability thing. It’s also they’re trying to protect me and that sort of thing. But there’s good reason to believe that I should be able to wrestle…so we’ll see in a year and a half what happens.”

A lot can change between now and when Bryan’s WWE contract expires next year, though. Things like, the birth of your baby daughter.

WWE ask John Cena for Smackdown return, last-minute Raw changes – WrestleTalk News

If you told me just a few years ago that the guy from The Apprentice with questionable hair would be the President of the United States, I would reply: “I’m fine, thank you. I don’t want all the drugs in the world that you’ve just taken.”

So it’s probably wise to not count out Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson becoming the new President in 2020.

BetOnline.org have slashed The Dwayne’s Head of State odds to a very tasty 80-to-1, prompting both The Washington Post to write an article on his potential bid, and Oscar-winning documentary maker Michael Moore to glowingly endorse the People’s Champion:

Run the Rock! Run the Rock! Who do you want for commander in chief? I want the f***ing Rock! It would scare anybody that would hurt us. »

WWE star takes shot at Cm Punk, WWE signing ex-tna stars? – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

After Raw broke records this week, setting its lowest non-holiday, non-football season viewership number for 20 years, it was up to Smackdown to get a record of its own. Hopefully the good kind.

Thankfully, the blue brand was up from last week’s lowest rating of 2017 so far, pulling in an extra 50,000 viewers to make it 2.35 million.

Far more important, of course, are your ratings. 62% of you thought it was Smack Bang in the Middle, while 23% thought it slightly better at SmackTastic.

Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella have won the most prestigious mixed-gender tag division prize: a human child!

Brie gave birth to their daughter Birdie Joe Danielson on Tuesday night at 11.58pm, weighing in at 8 pounds, 10 ounces and standing at a fearsome 21 inches. To put that into context, she’d be on 205 Live, not the main roster.

Brie told WWE: “I can’t even express the overwhelming joy and love that Bryan and I are feeling. Now we know what parents mean about the love you feel when you first meet your child.”

Grandpa Vince McMahon wished the couple well on Twitter:

Congratulations to Brie @BellaTwins & @WWEDanielBryan on their beautiful daughter and newest addition to the @WWE family.

Vince McMahon (@VinceMcMahon) May 10, 2017

Sounds like you’ve signed her to a contract, Vince. That’s weird.

Opening Segment

Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal bickered back and forth about who’s going to be the WWE Champ-argh! Is Jinder the champion already!? 

What year is this!?

Oh thank god, it was just a skit.

Jinder spoke about his country and respect and blah blah blah, and then out came Kevin Owens to remind them: “Nobody cares about the House of Horrors, nobody cares about India, and…” – here comes the heel – “…nobody cares about England.”

No need to get political, man.

Aj Styles, Baron Corbin and Sami Zayn then came out one after the other, and you know how these things go – they’re all going one-on-one with The Undertaker, playas!

Wait, no. I got that wrong. Six man tag.

Six man tag for the main event. Playas.

The Artist Shinsuke Nakamura

There are ways to book wrestlers who aren’t strong on English language promos. None of which are based around cutting English language promos.

Give them a manager, squash matches, present them in pretaped promos rather than in front of a live crowd. Don’t put them in the ring for drawn out interview segments with Dolph Ziggler.

Shinsuke Nakamura just stood there with a frustrated gurn while Ziggler went on a painfully unfunny skit about Michael Jackson for what seemed like forever.

Rather than force a ‘Prince of Pop’ nickname down our earholes, though, the commentators kept calling Nakamura ‘The Artist’ every time Ziggler paused for non-existent crowd heat. Because who needs naturalistic speech?

Nakamura hasn’t been booked badly since his main roster debut, but that doesn’t mean he’s been booked effectively. »

Kevin Owens, New Day, Charlotte & more to Smackdown! | WWE Smackdown Live, April 11, 2017 Review

12 April 2017 7:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The New Kevin Owens Show

Kevin Owens opened the show, declaring his Superstar Shake-Up move to Smackdown. He even wore a blue tie to stay on brand. The sudden announcements didn’t feel as out-of-place as on Raw the previous night. Probably because we’d already had a whole day to get used to the fact: this booking makes no sense.

With Dean Ambrose’s Intercontinental Title now on Raw, Baron Corbin said he deserves a shot at Ko’s United States Championship. Logic point No.1. But Owens had two more challengers – complete babyface Aj Styles, thankfully still on Smackdown, and the night’s second Superstar Shake-Up move, Sami Zayn. The Zayn vs Owens feud was driven into the ground on Raw, but trust in Smackdown’s bookers to actually make future matches mean something.

Daniel Bryan pointed out Ko can’t defend his Us title until after his match with Chris Jericho at Payback. »
