• Chris Jericho Wants An Angry Jim Cornette As His Manager At Wrestle Kingdom 12
During a recent edition of Jim Cornette’s podcast, Cornette said the following about the Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega match at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12:
“If it was any other serious other real pro wrestler than Omega, I would watch this, obviously. But just the sight of his f***ing punk face and the sound of his whiny voice makes me sick to my stomach.”
Cornette then tweeted the following:
@IAmJericho is a lot smarter than I am–I just WANT to punch Omega's face, he's figured out a way to do it and make a shit-pot full of money out of it. Ol' Kenny's gonna have stiffer competition than a blowup doll or an 8 year old girl at the Dome. https://t.co/NparQoLnOU

• SmackDown Star Turning Heel?
During a recent edition of “The Taz Show” podcast, former ECW World Champion Taz discussed the exchange between Shane McMahon & Daniel Bryan on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live.
Below is what Taz said:
“The interaction with Shane and Daniel Bryan, I really enjoyed. It was kind of lengthy, but I liked it. I liked Shane’s performance in this. I liked Daniel. I really think these two guys, they have a very good chemistry interacting with each other.
I would assume at some point we’re gonna see Shane probably, I thought it’d be Daniel, but Shane turn heel. Maybe, I don’t know, just crack Daniel if Daniel could take a bump out. I don’t know what’s going on with that part.
But they explained a little bit of the whole double ref thing from Clash of Champions and all that stuff and Shane went into a detailed gimmick of re-enacting the whole thing and explained himself and then basically Daniel Bryan’s like I saved you from yourself type thing.
There was a lot of tension. It felt good. It felt real. I wanted to see more.”
