Below are the top Pro-Wrestling news stories of the day:
• Former Champion Plans To Spill Gossip About Her WWE Release Soon
Former RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax, who got released from WWE last month, might never wrestle again.
Here’s the latest update she posted about her pro-wrestling career on Twitter:
“Lol! 😂 Newflash..Lina is my real name. It’s not another ‘ring’ name. It’s just MY NAME, the name given to me at birth. Calm TF down trolls. In all fairness, ‘Opponent Crippler’ would be a SOLID front runner if I ever decide to wrestle again. 🤣 🙌🏽 but it’s highly unlikely.”
Nia then went on to note that she’s going to “spill gossip” about her WWE departure on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast soon.
Here’s what she tweeted:
“Lol don’t worry, I’ll be chatting (spilling gossip) with @ReneePaquette eventually.”
“The mics are hot baby!!!!”
Alexa Bliss, Nia’s former WrestleMania opponent, then tweeted:
“Just don’t tell our Jeep story! #SorryOurWindowIsBroken”
“Lol!!! Everything is on the table Bliss, even the stuff that you’re not supposed to talk about.”
After she got fired, Nia issued the following statement:
“I usually keep my personal life private, but yesterday’s reports leave me with no option but to clarify matters. I recently took a short leave of absence from WWE for a mental health break.
I’ve been working through so much — more than I can share — and so I took some time, the full support of the company, to take care of myself.
Earlier this week, after WWE sent me my schedule to return to the ring for the November 15 show, I asked for an extension to my mental health break, feeling that I needed more time and hoping I would have the ongoing support of the company I have given my all to for the past 7 years. I did not receive a response.
The next I heard, I was being released. My vaccination status was never mentioned. I wasn’t given any choices or options.
It breaks my heart to be so abruptly let go, without consultation, while dealing with so much privately. I loved my career at WWE, I love the men and women I worked with, and I am going to need time to process this huge loss.
I appreciate those people who have shown understanding and compassion during an incredibly difficult time.”

• Attitude Era Wrestler Returning To The Ring
WWF Attitude Era Veteran Scotty 2 Hotty recently announced on Instagram that he has asked for his release from WWE.
He was working as a coach in NXT. He issued a statement to explain this decision. You can read it below:
“Today, I have asked for my release from World Wrestling Entertainment.
30 Years ago I stepped into a WWE ring for the very first time. I have lived my dream 100 times over. Some of my most special memories will always be from the last 5 years working with NXT.
The black and gold brand was something special and I am proud to have been a small part of that. I always promised myself that I would never be part of something solely for the paycheck and that was where I was at.
I told myself that I would walk away if I ever got to that point, so that is what I have chosen to do.
Coaching and producing the stars of NXT will always be a highlight of my life. I love you all more than you will ever know. 🙏🏼 “
He is now scheduled to return to the ring for ISPW Valentine’s Vengeance event on February 18, 2022.
Scotty’s last match took place over 5 years ago, in November 2016, and it took place on the indy scene. He is 48 years old.

• RAW Wrestler’s Wife Leaves AEW, Explains Why
AEW Women’s Division wrestler Big Swole (wife of WWE RAW wrestler Cedric Alexander) has decided not to renew her contract with All Elite Wrestling.
She posted a statement to explain her decision, which you can read below:
“Over the past couple of months my life has taken on the mantra grow, learn, change. Dealing with shadow work took strength I didn’t know I had. I thank God for my loving family because they got me through some of the roughest months of my life. But I realized the real test is application.
So I took my leap and after speaking with TK and AEW higher officials we’ve decided not to renew my contract with All Elite Wrestling. This was a hard decision but a needed one.
I am grateful for their understanding and that we could mutually come to this agreement. I’ve enjoyed my time with AEW and wish them all the best. I appreciate their love and welcoming me into the family.
Today is my last day and as bittersweet as it is, I am proud to say that I’ve lived my dreams while making a difference. That is Swole Mentality.”

• Reason Behind Kevin Owens Being Added To The WWE Title Match At The Day 1 PPV (Spoiler)
Seth Rollins kicked off this week’s RAW by announcing that he will face Big E for the WWE Championship on January 1, 2022 at the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view.
However, later in the night, Kevin Owens told Rollins that WWE Official Adam Pearce informed him that he will get added to the WWE Championship match if he beats Big E.
In the main event of the show, Owens defeated Big E via DQ after Rollins attacked him.
It’ll now be Big E vs. Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens for the WWE Championship at the Day 1 PPV.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Owens was added to this match so he can take the pin and the Big E – Rollins feud can continue, with a singles match being saved for another PPV:
“This allows them to stretch the feud out between Big E and Seth Rollins, because Kevin Owens can get pinned and they can keep the feud going. Because on that side, as long as Big E is a babyface champion it’s gonna be tough to put Edge in there.
I mean, who is there other than Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens, and Kevin Owens we don’t know how long Kevin Owens is gonna be there. His contract is coming up at the end of January after the Royal Rumble, and then he’ll have a decision to make.”

• The Undertaker Changes His Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling
During a recent appearance on Kevin Hart’s Cold As Balls, WWF/E Legend The Undertaker was asked who’s on his Mount Rushmore of Wrestling.
Here’s what The Phenom said:
“Andre. Stone Cold. Rock. And I’m going to go with Shawn Michaels.”
This is quite a different answer from what Undertaker gave in 2020, during an interview with ComicBook.
Here’s what he said about his Mount Rushmore of Wrestling last year:
“You got to have [Ric] Flair. You got to have [Hulk] Hogan. Stone Cold [Steve Austin]. That fourth one’s tough.
It could be Harley [Race]. It could be Dusty [Rhodes]. It could be Bruno [Sammartino]. And I base that on contributions to the business.
Not so much if they were a great worker or this or that, but… Oh, I know my fourth, it’s Andre [The Giant]. I don’t know why I forgot Andre. So yeah, it would probably be Flair, Hogan, Stone Cold and Andre.”
Taker also commented on his retirement from in-ring competition:
“In my mind, I wanted to do it and in my heart, I still wanted to do it. But I realized, my body couldn’t do what it used to do. The injuries, I couldn’t even put a number on.
The surgeries, I’ve had upwards of 17/18 surgeries. Everybody feels like they’ve got to give that disclaimer right away, you know, ‘that sh*t’s not real is it?’ Well, it’s real enough to cause 17 surgeries.
People don’t realize that within the course of a match, you’re only a couple of inches away at any given time from something really catastrophic. Those two inches are a really great night or a really bad night.”

• “Vince holds the legacy of his father and grandfather so highly” – Hall Of Famer On Why Vince McMahon Will Never Sell WWE
On a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff claimed that WWE Owner Vince McMahon is never going to sell his company and would rather give it to a family member instead.
Here’s what the 2021 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“One of the reasons I was so steadfast in my opinion that WWE under Vince McMahon will never sell is because of the strong impression that I had over many, many years and even working with Vince very closely for a short time, it’s so obvious to me that Vince holds the legacy of his father and grandfather so highly.
It’s evident when you walk into Vince’s office, right? It’s not a mystery, you can figure it out pretty quickly. I’ve just always believed because of that legacy and how highly apparent to me that Vince holds that legacy, and that he’s got Stephanie and Shane and by virtue of marriage Triple H, and he’s got grandchildren.
I just would believe that, I’ve always believed that Vince would be far more predisposed to allowing his family to carry on that legacy that means so much to Vince.”
There were rumors earlier this year of WWE being sold to Disney, but those rumors weren’t true at all.
A lot of people think Triple H would be the one who will eventually run WWE after Vince, but it’s all speculation at this point. Triple H’s health will play a major role in this decision, since it’s yet to be seen if he’ll ever return to his high-pressure backstage job in WWE after his heart issue.

• “It is just weird” – Disco Inferno On Bryan Danielson’s Heel Turn In AEW
Old School WCW Veteran Disco Inferno appeared on Konnan’s Keepin’ It 100 podcast, where he criticized the recent heel turn of Bryan Danielson (fka Daniel Bryan) in All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what the former WCW World Tag Team Champion had to say on the booking of Bryan’s AEW heel turn:
“And this is bizarre too. Whatever he is doing. What if the Dark Order were heels and he was a babyface that would be like Yo. He is like an alone heel beating up everybody in the babyface group. That is like a weird way to book this. He has no help. He has called guys out and just pummeling them in the ring every week. It is just weird.”
Bryan is the current #1 contender for the AEW World Championship, and will face “Hangman” Adam Page for the Title soon.
Disco Inferno wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1995 until the promotion was sold in March 2001.
At one point, he was a member of the red & black nWo Wolfpac version of the New World Order, which he said was the highlight of his entire pro-wrestling career.

• WWE Hall Of Famer Recalls His Backstage Fight With Eddie Guerrero
WWF Legend Kurt Angle was interviewed by Chris Jericho on a recent edition of the weekly ‘Talk Is Jericho’ podcast, where Angle talked about a backstage fight he had with Eddie Guerrero back in 2004 after a segment on SmackDown.
Here’s what the 2017 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“What happened was we had a fight in the ring. We are getting heat on Eddie. It was Luther Reigns, Mark Jindrak, and myself. I didn’t touch Eddie, so I couldn’t have been the one that stiffed him. Mark Jindrak and Luther Reigns were getting heat on Eddie and when I got backstage, Eddie came back.
After the show, we all wait in Gorilla and shake each other’s hands. I went to shake his hand and say, ‘thank you, Eddie’. He goes, ‘no, no. What you did out there was wrong. You were stiffing me’. I said, ‘Eddie, I didn’t touch you.’ He said, ‘bullsh*t. You were stiffing me, you were beating me up’. I pushed him. I didn’t know what to do, he made me so mad so I pushed him.
He double legs me, an amateur wrestling double leg. I get him down and got him in a front headlock and I started choking him out. So, Big Show comes in, and this is embarrassing, talk about having little guy syndrome.
Big Show grabs me by the back of my singlet, pulls me up and puts me in one corner, takes Eddie, puts Eddie in another corner. He says, ‘you guys are done.’ Now I’m pissed at Big Show, I said, ‘don’t you ever touch me like that again.’ Big Show was so damn strong, he lifted me up with one hand and my legs were kicking.
We get backstage and I felt bad. So, I go to Eddie’s locker room to apologize. I get back there and I knock on the door. He opens the door and doesn’t say anything. I said, ‘Eddie, listen. I just want to say I’m sorry’. You know what Eddie said to me? ‘I’m not ready yet’.
So, I go inside and I started whacking him. I’m fighting Eddie, we are throwing punches. Bradshaw pulled us apart and is like, ‘guys, you’ve got to stop’. I’m like, ‘well, I said I was sorry and this arsehole doesn’t want to say he’s sorry back’. But that’s Eddie.
Eddie is going to apologize when he wants to and I should have known that.”
Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle feuded for most of 2004, with their biggest matches taking place at the WrestleMania XX and SummerSlam 2004 PPVs.
