Cageside Seats - almost 4 years
Speculating on the rumors surrounding pro wrestling is a favored pastime of many fans, perhaps second only to actually watching the matches. In this daily column, we will be taking a look at the latest rumors being churned out by the pro wrestling rumor mill. Important reminder: Rumors are just that -- rumors. None of this has been confirmed as legitimate news or fact; so remember to take it all with a grain of salt. Rumors for the Day: A favorite subject of ours here at the Rumor Roundup is the potential returns of past Superstars. Another name to add to the ever-growing list is John Morrison. Since leaving WWE in late 2011, the multi-time Intercontinental and Tag Team champion has been working on the independent scene. Back in December, Morrison claimed that the door was open for his WWE return at any time and he expected to return in 6 months time.

Rumor Round Up: Royal Rumble, WrestleMania 29, more!
Cageside Seats - about 4 years
Rumors float and pro wrestling fans like yourself typically find them interesting, so instead of asking you to click into a thousand different posts with two lines and calling it a story, we're just going to pass along all the latest rumors in this here column we're simply calling the "Rumor Round-Up." Remember: None of this is confirmed as legitimate news or fact, so take it all with a grain of salt. Let's get to 'em: It's still extremely possible CM Punk beats The Rock at Royal Rumble before losing the belt at Elimination Chamber. The idea originally was Rock could do a lot of promoting for WWE by carrying the world title with him on press tours for other things he's done but that's up in the air. Imagine Rock on Leno with the belt, though. No one knows what the hell is going on with Ric Flair. He was supposed to work both Raw and SmackDown this week but he didn't end up showing up to either. The feeling is he may not even be signing a contract with WWE, at least n ...

Lauren Drell: Smashing Pumpkins Frontman Billy Corgan Talks His Brother, Wrestling and a New Reality TV Show in the Works
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Chances are, you've heard from Billy Corgan recently. Maybe it's been at SXSWi where he was in a one-on-one fiery conversation with author Brian Solis or at the Metro last month when Smashing Pumpkins headlined the Hot Stove Cool Music benefit concert just days before the alterna-rock group's hyped album Oceania dropped. But, in between the Pumpkins headlines, Corgan's making his own news as he's turning his attention toward something a bit more under-the-radar and just as close to his heart -- his half-brother Jesse Andersen and his ongoing mission to raise awareness for people, like his brother, whom are living with disabilities. Corgan talks candidly about growing up with Andersen, inviting him into the ring of his wrestling venture Resistance Pro and a new reality TV show he's got in the works. It has been a year since your brother, Jesse Andersen, was robbed and attacked on the CTA Red Line train while he was on the way to work. I know that you took to Twitter and were ...

Hulk Hogan Talks to NY Post about WWE and “Momentum-Shifting” Moves In Store for TNA Impact Wrestling
Inside Pulse- Wrestling - almost 5 years
Anthony Sulla-Heffinger of the NY Post interviewed TNA star and current on-air authority figure Hulk Hogan about Impact Wrestling’s direction as Hogan teased “momentum-shifting” ideas that he has in store for TNA and its fans. Hogan on creating stars in TNA vs. WWE: “The only way I could explain it to you is if I talked about John Cena … The WWE has taken about ten years to build up John Cena to that Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock-type level. TNA is the same way, we’ve only been around for 10 years. It’s a very young company and to even say that it is competitive and that the WWE has a little less of a presence, that’s a major statement.” Hogan on TNA vs. WWE philosophies: “The WWE is doing billions of dollars as a company and focus on the entertainment aspect of things … They don’t want to call their talent wrestlers anymore, I get it, but we are focusing on the wrestling and really feeling the vibe. The media and entertainment business moves so fast, we’re almost going shelf t ...

WWE: Could Z! True Long Island Story Be Hinting at a John Morrison Return?
Bleacher Report - almost 5 years
Since episode 51 of Zack Ryder's hit YouTube series, Z! True Long Island Story, the show has been released via WWE's Fan Nation channel. I would have thought that with the show under the WWE banner, it would of had to conform to WWE's strict standards. In particular, I am thinking about WWE's preference to ignore anyone who isn't in their company and either isn't a legend or on the verge of making a deal. In this regard, I refer you to the last three episodes of Zack Ryder's show. On the anniversary episode, <a class="fplink fp-147612" href="/John+Morrison+1">John Morrison</a> made an appearance congratulating Zack on his success from the show.

One Count Kickout – Elimination Lamer
Wrestle Heat - about 5 years
Follow @OneCountKickout Like the One Count Kickout on Facebook WWE’s Elimination Chamber usually provides fans with two exciting, brutal matches where top stars from each brand step up and challenge for the WWE and World Heavyweight Titles.  They are matches full of exciting spots where the superstars pull out all the stops.  It’s rare that a chamber match fails to entertain, or at least, make the pay-per-view worth watching. Last year’s Elimination Chamber matches saw Wade Barrett, Big Show, Drew McIntyre, Kane, Rey Mysterio and Edge from Smackdown and R-Truth, Randy Orton, Sheamus, John Morrison, CM Punk and John Cena from Raw.  Pretty big names and fairly exciting matches, certainly entertaining and worth putting fifty dollars down. 2012 proves to be much less promising.  The Raw chamber match will involve WWE Champion CM Punk defending against Chris Jericho, The Miz, R-Truth, Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston.  This isn’t a bad lineup, although it is lacking somewhat in star ...

MNM held the titles for three months, having successful titles defenses against the teams of Mysterio and Guerrero and Hardcore Holly and Charlie Haas, before dropping them to the Legion of Doom (LOD) at The Great American Bash. They won the titles again in a four-way match defeating The Mexicools, William Regal and Paul Burchill, and LOD, but lost them to Mysterio and Batista days before Armageddon in December. Due to help from Mark Henry, MNM defeated Mysterio and Batista in a rematch on December 30 to win the championship for the third time. They began a rivalry with the team of Paul London and Brian Kendrick that lasted over three months, until they dropped the championship to London and Kendrick at Judgment Day in May, with the storyline leading to Nitro and Melina suddenly turning on Mercury after the match, breaking up the group.

    On March 1, 2004, Hennigan debuted on the Raw brand under the ring name "Johnny Blaze".
    More Details Hide Details His gimmick was that he was the apprentice and assistant of the Raw General Manager, Eric Bischoff. The next week his name was changed to "Johnny Spade", and three weeks after that it was changed to "Johnny Nitro". The Nitro name, which finally stuck, was a reference to WCW Monday Nitro, the flagship show of World Championship Wrestling for which Bischoff had previously worked. To drive the point home, he began using the Nitro theme as his ring entrance music. Nitro acted as Bischoff's apprentice and assistant until June, when he was sent back to OVW. To explain his departure, Nitro lost a match on June 7 episode of Raw against Eugene, which carried the stipulation that upon his loss, he also lost his job. Upon his return to OVW, Nitro was put into a feud with his former partner Matt Cappotelli. During the course of the feud Melina was brought into the company as Nitro's ex-girlfriend and an ally of Cappotelli, only to turn on him and side with Nitro.
