• Current Plan For Seth Rollins On Monday’s RAW
As we reported before, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. claimed on his podcast that Seth Rollins walked out of RAW after WrestleMania 39 after last minute changes were made to his segment:
“They played a commercial during his intro, and then we could kind of hear him having a freak-out on some production people. He was going ‘Why is there a commercial?!’ You couldn’t really hear what he was saying. You could just tell he was mad.
He said, ‘What the hell is going on?!’ I saw that coming out of his mouth. I think he was more pissed than pissed at them. I think he was pissed when he went backstage at whoever did that.
But if I was him, I would’ve been just as angry, and I thought the way he dealt with it was so hardcore and awesome. Instead of cutting a promo, he just throws the mic out of the ring and walked out — and walked out of the friggin’ show.”
Rollins didn’t appear on last week’s RAW, which could be because several wrestlers faced travel issues.
WRKD Wrestling then reported the following about Rollins after Freddie’s claim:
“Squashing any rumors, Seth Rollins currently has no plans to leave the WWE.
One of the driving points is the amount of time he gets to spend with his family while being on the road and he isn’t looking to change that.”
In an update from Xero News, Rollins is scheduled to return to the ring on this Monday’s RAW, where he will face former WWE Champion The Miz.

• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 86th birthday of Old School WWF Legend George “The Animal” Steele (Real name: William Myers).
George Steele wrestled from 1967 until he retired in 1988, but still came out of retirement a couple of times in 1997 & 1998 (WWF), as well as in early 2000 when he wrestled Jeff Jarrett on an episode of WCW Monday NITRO.
Steele won the Slammy Award for “Best Performance by an Animal” in 1987.
In 1995, he was inducted into the World Wrestling Federation Hall of Fame (now WWE Hall of Fame) by Doink The Clown.
