- ChicagoNow.com is featuring an interview with WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan. One of the questions asked that stood out the most was whom Daniel Bryan would like to face going into WrestleMania 29 next year. Here is what he said:
“I would think it would be really cool and how both are careers have gone, it would be CM Punk. I think that would be a major important match and be awesome to go out there in front of 70,000 people and show them what we can do. Both of us wrestled in front of 35 people so having that kind of crowd in front of us would be amazing.”
Bryan also revealed in a new interview with Arda Ocal that after he was released by WWE back in 2010, he had talks with people in TNA. Bryan also noted that at the time of his release that he wasn’t concerned financially because he had options to make more money compared to NXT wrestlers were being paid.
“WWE apologized and said they had sponsors they had to deal with and whatnot. And I said don’t worry about me, I’m probably going to make more money this year than I did the last year when I was on NXT,” Bryan said. “I had people from Japan calling me, I had TNA people talking to me, not directly, but through other people. It was just a fascinating time for me in my career.”

– WWE is reporting that Brock Lesnar will not be fined for assaulting announcer Josh Mathews. WWE made the ‘announcement’ of the non-fine on their website Friday evening. The story also features storyline-driven quotes from Mathews on his “recovery” from Lesnar’s attack.
– WWE announced that the Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes match stipulation will be determined during the Extreme Rules pre-show with a spinning wheel.
– Former World Heavyweight Champion Bill Goldberg recently appeared on 106.7 The Fan in Washington DC. Here are some nightlights from the interview:
On his and Brock Lesnar’s initial departure from WWE: “Obviously it was kind of unfinished business. We both left there under circumstances that weren’t the most favorable for anybody, let alone the fans who are the most important at the end of the day.”
On Lesnar in general: “Brock, as a young kid, he succeeded in every single thing that he did. To venture out and try to play professional football without having college experience — LaVar will tell you how hard that is. Big pat on the back to him for that. And then going to MMA and succeeding and becoming the World Heavyweight Champion. . . Whatever Brock wants to do, I’m in his corner. He’s a good buddy of mine and we talk frequently. I just hope at the end of the day whatever he chooses his health is in a positive note. We all know he’s had some issues over the past number of years.”
On having a final match: “It’s really tough for a guy like myself. Look at a guy like Animal. Look at Road Warrior. Look at guys who are big power guys. . . the older you get the harder it is to be that guy.”
He added his ideal final match would be against Steve Austin: “That’d be a dream come true… that’d be killer. I think at the end of the day they probably don’t trust me enough to put me in there with guys, considering I’m ‘a dangerous guy to work with’ and ‘I haphazardly ended Bret Hart’s career.’ At the end of the day these people have to understand it’s a violent deal, number one. Number two, accidents happen. And number three, that’s why I work in Japan — they don’t cry if you hit them …That’s a joke.”
A new wrestling reality show with the Monster Factory wrestling school headed by Larry Sharpe is in the works. A pilot episode based student try-outs scheduled for May 12 will be filmed by PBR Productions. According to a press release, “one participant who shines the most will be offered a partial scholarship.”
