Daniel Bryan Cleared For In-Ring Return

Did not expect to see this come across on this fine Tuesday afternoon.

I've been vocally against an in-ring return for Bryan due to the nature of his retirement and the symptoms he apparently hid from doctors.

That said, if WWE is willing to put him back out there after shelving him for two years I will go from "vocally against" to "at the very worst indifferent."

Will be interesting to see him in the ring again.

UPDATE: WWE.com just posted this story about it.

Update On The Greatest Royal Rumble Ever

My initial thoughts on the Greatest Royal Rumble Ever in Saudi Arabia are in this older post, but we got a new piece of information today.

It came from the Big Dog himself, Roman Reigns.

That should be an absolute spectacle, can't wait.

I Was Wrong, But At Least I Was Loud About It (Fabulous Moolah Related)

I have to admit that I did not see this coming at all, and my Tweets about it yesterday certainly attest to that. There were more, but I think this one gets to the heart of the matter the most.

It's still true that when I wrote that the Moolah issue was not widely known inside of the bubble even.

Where I was dead wrong was how much the coverage might change that. I NEVER thought that the social media outcry, Deadspin articles, etc. would make WWE change their tune on this, but it did.

I'm Sorry...I Had To...Kevin Owens Related

I've got a reputation to protect here...

Announced ACTION Wrestling Card So Far

If you've paid any attention to my Twitter account or this site, you already know this, but ACTION Wrestling is the promotion debuting in Tyrone, GA on Friday, April 27th.

Here are the matches announced so far as recapped on their Twitter (@WrestleACTION1) feed tonight.

If one of the matches looks a bit different than you recall, it's because Austin Theory was announced as Gunner Miller's partner initially. Garrini was recently announced as his replacement.

  1. Dominic Garrini v Gunner Miller
  2. Fred Yehi v Cain Justice
  3. Michael Spencer v Arik Royal
  4. Cam Carter v Billy Buck
  5. Joey Lynch v A.C. Mack

This looks to be a fantastic show, and tickets are available at the ACTION Wrestling website. Norko and I have already bought front row tickets for my family. Mom has even got tickets for her and Dad already.

The End For Toys R Us Might Be Sooner Than We Thought

This unfortunate news dropped today, Toys R Us may be ceasing operations altogether as soon as next week.

Back in January, I talked a little bit about what Toys R Us means to me when the first round of closures were announced. Since then Toys R Us announced they'd actually end up closing half their stores, and now we have that report claiming the whole chain may close next week.

In the grand scheme of life is this a big deal for me? No, and I can keep that in perspective obviously. It was something I really enjoyed, and have enjoyed even more now that I can experience it with my children.

Can I still take the kids to look for toys? Absolutely, but I will say there's just something a touch more magical about taking them to a toy store instead of a Walmart or Target to look at toys.  That's the difference.

Joey Lynch V AC Mack Announced For ACTION Wrestling's First Show

Quick thoughts on this, AC Mack was an absolute highlight of Scenic City Rumble 2018 for me. I had heard the name, but had not seen him until then. He was fantastic that night, and I am sure he'll bring that entertainment value to Tyrone.

Joey Lynch is someone I am more familiar with from the Scenic City shows, and he is great. He calls himself The King of the Moonsault for good reason, has a great look, and can go in the ring.

This is the level of talent I was talking about when I said that quality pro-wrestling was coming to Tryone.
