    Re: News And Rumors Tidbits. *May Contain Spoilers*

    Fightful is reporting that Karrion Kross is all but expected to be returning to WWE after the front office shake-up.

    Fightful Select has learned that the former NXT Champion had been discussed as a name of interest for WWE to bring back to the company.

    Fightful stated that people in the industry already expected him to return to WWE and one source indicated that Kross is already in WWE’s creative plans.
    "Already in WWE's creative plans" definitely stands out. I see no reason why he'd turn down the opportunity to return, and it's easy to see him being a guy that Triple H would want to put a lot of stock in. Not mentioned, but I would hope and assume that Scarlett is following him.

    He can definitely recover under H running things. I don't think people on this board are high on him but I've always really liked his work

    So much for controlling his narrative. Turns out he likes money.

    Re: News And Rumors Tidbits. *May Contain Spoilers*

    He's honestly ok as a wrestler, it's his over the top facial expressions that make me a bit sour on him. His promo he cut when he had to give up the title due to injury was actually really great when he was subdued and believable. Him veering into cartoon territory is really bad stuff.

    Re: News And Rumors Tidbits. *May Contain Spoilers*

    Word on the street (random wrestling website that I can't remember) is that the USA Network is really pushing for an "interim World Title belt" on Raw. They are reporting it's due to the fact that the champ really feels like his home is on SD and feels like he's doing Raw "part time". Wonder if it'll some how push Theory into cashing in and actually winning the belt. Or maybe that's why it seems Kross is being thrusted into the mix maybe already, who knows. I just really know there is no need for three "main" titles on WWE when one guy has two of them.

    Introducing an "interim" 3rd world title because Reigns has the other 2 would just be.... tremendous booking self-sabotage.

    Re: News And Rumors Tidbits. *May Contain Spoilers*

    This story seems completely fabricated for a couple of reasons. First, using the exact term "interim title" just sounds like someone cribbing what AEW has done with the Punk situation. Second, and perhaps even more important, I cannot fathom the executives at USA giving two shits about titles. They care that Roman isn't on the show, sure, but it's not solely because he's the champion. USA wants the biggest draws on their show, of which Roman is one, along with Lesnar and Rousey. Whether they're holding titles or not shouldn't matter, and seems more like the fantasy of an armchair booker than an actual network television executive.

    While it honestly wouldn't surprise me, that rumour was apparently started by that transphobic dude that freaked out about Nyla Rose and got ex-communicated from ATM Tony's inner circle. You can't really believe anything he says.

    I'm surprised more people aren't mentioning the potential story that Tony doesn't actually own Ring of Honor, just their trademarks. It would certainly explain why there's been no news on the tv show.

    EDIT: I don't have a lot of time to discuss it right now, but the story can be found on Twitter through @BuckStarsky22

    Would be real cool if they could rollback some of the dumber name changes. Giving guys like Ciampa and Theory their first name backs would make my brain hurt a little less. The fascination with mono named guys has long been lost on me.

    Fightful is reporting that Hit Row is returning next week, obciously sans Swerve.

    Gives much needed depth to the tqg division if nothing else. Thats one thing thats been sorely understated. Hunter loves builsing a tag division.

    DIY, Revival, AOP etc.

    To use an analogy Hunter might get, bringing back Hitrow without Swerve is like Motorhead announcing they're coming back but there's no Lemmy.

    I'm not a big fan of those he's brought back, but I respect the fact he's bringing back those who didn't get a fair shake on the main roster. Even if they still flop this time, at least it'll be by their own accord.

    Yeah I have to say, even not being a particularly big fan of Kross, Lumis and the auxiliary members of Hit Row, I do like their addition to the roster, just for the freshness of it. The roster is quickly becoming more intriguing with this influx of like-new talent.

    I'm a fan of both Kross and Lumis, so this is all positive news for me. Didn't care much for Hit Row, and definitely won't without Swerve.

    I suppose I’m in the minority that dug the other members of Hit-Row, Ashante the Adonis, Top Dolla, and B-Fab. Ashante was pretty fun in ring, especially on 205 prior to joining Hit-Row.

    I have no issue with any of the re-signings, I should point out. I just don't have a strong desire to see any of them is all. But like I said, just having the new blood alone makes them worthwhile additions in my mind.

    PWInsider reporting that Jarrett has left his position as VP of Live Events within WWE. Seemingly no word on what brought about this move, but most are assuming it's connected to the regime change. Feels like there's a solid chance he's gonna return to wrestling to me, which after the Flair match, I'm all in on. Double J always been a personal favorite and I'd love a final run.

    PWInsider is reporting that Braun Strowman is back with WWE and will be appearing on Monday's RAW broadcast. I guess he's done controlling his narrative.

    Lmao I think that might be the funniest crawling back to the fed story yet after all his CYN promos.

    Easy monster to feed to Roman again if he wins this weekend I guess.
