• Former WWE Star Comments On If Going Back To Dual-Branded PPVs Is A Good Move
During a recent edition of Conversation With The Big Guy podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback spoke about what he thinks of WWE ending the single branded PPVs and going back to dual-branded pay-per-views.
Below is what he said:
“I think the ‘In & Out Burger’ formula; when you simplify things, and you do it well, you are much better off than over-complicating the menu. I think Pro Wrestling over-complicated the menu a long time ago for the sake of money. There is a way to cut back on that now.
From a performer’s standpoint it kind of sucks because guys that were going to be on pay-per-views, may not be getting on pay-per-views regularly because you are sharing brands, and you can only take a few matches from each show essentially.
They have ways around it though; they can create longer pay-per-views to try and kind of narrow that gap, I think it is a good move. It is too much of a product, which I don’t think is a good thing.”
• Daniel Bryan’s Doctor Says He Didn’t Find Any Sign Of Previous Concussion-Related Brain Injury That Would Prevent Bryan From Competing
During an interview with Newsweek, Dr. Robert Cantu revealed that he found no sign of previous concussion-related brain injury that would prevent Daniel Bryan from competing in the ring when he evaluate Bryan on February 26.
Below is what Cantu said:
“I evaluated Bryan for a neurological opinion on return to WWE on February 26, 2018. Included in his medical records were multiple evaluations by renowned concussion clinicians.
I determined that Bryan is currently asymptomatic, has a normal detailed neurological and cognitive neuropsychological examination, normal EEG, and an MRI that showed no definite evidence of a prior brain injury.
It is my medical opinion that there is no absolute contraindication to his return to in-ring action in WWE.”
