The WWE's eyes are on ROH's Adam Cole, ROH World and Television Champion Jay Lethal as well as Former TNA Superstar Gunner. As Gunner has left TNA Impact Wrestling I see him being the first to be signed, he has the look they want and once they adjust his haircut then he will be almost a prototypical WWE Superstar. If Jay Lethal signs with WWE then it will be in 2016 but he will still be in great career form. he is red hot at the moment following his Champion vs. Champion Match at Ring of Honor Best in the World 2015 defeating Jay Briscoe. Adam Cole I would really like to see in WWE as he would be another great addition from the independent's to join NXT although I can't see him having any main roster success.
Daniel Bryan's Favorite Career Moment Was The Championship Ascension Ceremony from the December 9th, 2013 RAW
Daniel Bryan was in an interview recently with the Ashbury Park Press to hype up an appearance on June 28th, 2015 and he said what his favorite career was. You would think he would say the WrestleMania 30 WWE World Heavyweight Championship victory but instead he said it was the Championship Ascension Ceremony between John Cena and Randy Orton from the December 9th, 2015 episode of Monday Night RAW. Daniel Bryan was standing alongside other former world champions, Cena and Orton were supposed to cut their promo addressing their Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match that sunday but the crowd were marking out for Daniel Bryan. John Cena then improvised and asked Bryan some questions about himself which calmed down the crowd in attendance.
Below is the paraphrase from Daniel Bryan during that interview:
“It was just supposed to be an interview between (on-air authority figure) Triple-H, Randy Orton and John Cena, but the fans there weren’t having it. They just started chanting ‘Yes!’ and ‘Yes!’ and ‘Yes!’ and ‘Daniel Bryan!’ and ‘Yes!’ and more Yes-ing to the point that they were ruining the segment.”
“John Cena is so smart and so quick on his feet, he pulls me forward and asks me something to the effect of ‘What’s your name?’ I said, ‘Daniel Bryan,’ and everybody cheers. ‘Where are you from?’ ‘Aberdeen, Washington.’ Everybody cheers louder. ‘Were either your mom or dad a WWE superstar?’ I said that no, my dad is a log scaler and logging is big in the area, so then everybody cheered. It’s mostly special because that was the last time my dad got to see me wrestle before he passed away. And not only that, but he got mentioned. For me, that’s a very special moment. That’s my favorite, even more so than WrestleMania XXX. If you were to ask me my favorite moment in wrestling, that’d be it.”
The Winner of WWE Tough Enough Will Be Getting Paid More Than Top NXT Superstars (Balor, Itami, Sasha Banks etc)
I'm going through WWE What Culture (credit for the image used above and a fair few I've used on the website) and I see a news article stating that the winner of WWE Tough Enough will receive more money then proven international superstars like Finn Balor and Hideo Itami. Should a female win the competition she wouldn't get as much money as the man would but she would get a lot more then the NXT women get which is pretty unfair.
So leave your opinion below, I think this is as idiotic as Dixie Carter calling Destination America idiots.
The Monday Night RAW for June 15th, 2015 drew a whopping 4.114 million viewers which is a big improvement from the 3.645 million viewers that last weeks episode drew. Clearly the viewership jump can be credited to fans hearing about Brock Lesnar potentially coming back so they tuned in for this show and eventually got to the ending where Brock Lesnar made his return. This proves several things, John Cena not being on the show is a good thing for the viewers and the ratings, Brock Lesnar is a definite draw and Kevin Owens is a draw.
Tonight after Monday Night RAW the WWE Network will air the debut episode of WWE The List, this show will feature AJ Lee. The point of the show is apparently to rank the trendiest Divas which sounds idiotic, who thinks of this stuff?. Here's the WWE's preview for the show:
“Whether it’s winning the Diva’s Championship, or posting a very flattering photos on Twitter… These Divas do it all to stay trending.” - WWE
The Rusev, Lana and Dolph Ziggler love triangle storyline as we all know, will be put on hold because Rusev suffered an ankle injury on the May 28th, 2015 episode of Smackdown (taped on May 26th, 2015) in a match against Ryback. Rusev will be out of action for at least 2 months and that means that when he comes back it will be just after SummerSlam 2015. The other rumor going round is that when Rusev comes back he will be wearing wrestling boots, that will be very interesting to see and it will probably damage Rusev's 'I'm tough because I wrestle bare footed' character.
In a dark match before this weeks episode of Monday Night RAW Tyson Kidd faced Samoa Joe, apparently Tyson Kidd suffered a spinal cord injury which sounds really serious but given how quiet WWE is keeping it, it might not be that bad. WWE.com released an article titled "Tyson Kidd Suffers Injury" which is probably so the media don't see that and do a report about how WWE abuses their superstars, their superstars get spinal injuries etc. The injury probably isn't that bad, expect Tyson Kidd to return in a couple of months when he is cleared (not healthy, cleared). Where does Cesaro go from here, turn him heel and make him a big star, keep him face and make him a star...just use him.
The WWE Network will be doing another free match in June of 2015, I'm really getting sick of these free months because how are they supposed to make money when you are giving away two straight free months. They did their first free month in November 2014 then February 2015 then May 2015 and now June 2015. What do you think of this news, I think their idiots, leave your opinion below.

At this years SummerSlam there will most likely be a celebrity match between the star of TV's Arrow Stephen Amell against Stardust also known as Cody Rhodes. On RAW May 25th, 2015 Stardust got into Stephen Amell who was in the front row. Starudst got in his face while he was sitting down, that lead to Amell standing up and staring down Stardust. I should probably be watching Arrow because it doesn't help the whole celebrity thing if I have never heard of him. At SummerSlam do you want to see this, I don't because I've never heard of Stephen Amell.
