Sheamus health update

Sheamus recently revealed on his workout YouTube Channel, Celtic Warrior Workout (, that he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis in June. He’s since been in rehab and is also supplementing it by doing therapy at home. Spinal stenosis is a condition in which the spaces within the spine narrow. The condition can be debilitating and is what forced stars such as Stone Cold Steve Austin and Edge (Adam Copeland) into retirement. The WWE has adjusted matches featuring The Bar to be of lower impact on him in light of his condition, according to a report from Dave Meltzer.

Rich Swann update

Rich Swann’s attorney gave a statement to Sporting News earlier today, “hoping for a fair and quick resolution” regarding his client’s shocking arrest. Rich Swann was released from custody Monday after being arrested for simple battery and false imprisonment on Sunday on the condition that he has no direct or incorrect contact with his wife. He was placed on indefinite suspension by the WWE and he and his wife face termination by the WWE should either be convicted of domestic violence related charges. The arrest shocked many of their respective peers within the WWE but some weren’t surprised. Their relationship was described as “volatile” by some due to their respective pasts, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Tye Dillinger was involved in altercation with an irate fan at an airport. According to Tye’s account of the dust-up on Twitter, the fan yelled “I hoped you get released again, Shawn!” after Tye didn’t autograph eight items that he had.

King Kong Bundy vs. Razor Ramon

WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall started a scuffle with fellow legend, King Kong Bundy, at a New York fan convention late last month. According to the latest podcast episode of Sean Mooney’s “Prime Time” show, Hall showed up late for the event after he vanished earlier. According to Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, Hall was “messed up” and he was verbally abusing Bundy. Eventually, Kong got fed up and attacked Hall by choking him until they were separated.  This mishap isn’t a good look for Hall, especially after he seemed to finally be turning the corner from his well documented history of substance abuse.

Mass Remixes?

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The WWE is considering mass remixes of all the talent’s entrance themes. Given the sudden and shocking departure of Jim Johnston and the reasoning behind it, it’s not surprising that a transition would be entertained.

Vince Russo returns?

Vince Russo is returning to the wrestling industry. Former WCW, TNA, and Lucha Underground talent, Konnan, announced on Twitter that Vince has been hired as a script consultant for Aro Lucha. Konnan is the Head Of Creative for Aro Lucha.
