Backstage News On Jake Roberts’ WWE Status, WWE Talking To Sting?, NXT Call-ups, More



jake-roberts

- The appearance from Jake Roberts at Old School RAW was a one-time deal. That doesn’t mean he won’t be in the Royal Rumble or the WWE Hall of Fame but no deal has been put in place for either yet. Regarding his return on RAW, Roberts was telling people that the reason Dean Ambrose was smiling when Jake put the snake on him was because the snake defecated on his chest. CM Punk mentioned this to Ambrose and that’s why he couldn’t help but laugh.

- As has been the case around this time in recent years, reports are that WWE is talking with Sting, who has not renewed his TNA deal yet.

- A Ticketmaster pre-sale begins today for the March 24th WWE RAW at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The password is RAWTV.

- While NXT Diva Lana hasn’t been on the road with Alexander Rusev at WWE live events, the plan is to bring them up to the main roster together. It’s now said that the NXT stars slated for call-ups the quickest are NXT Women’s Champion Paige, Emma and the team of Rusev and Lana.

    Rusev and Lana are going up and Sami Zayn isn’t? Really?

        All in due course, Zayn is doing incredible down in NXT, his match with Cesaro was possibly the best NXT has seen. Pac/Adrian Neville as well as Samuray Del Sol (Kallisto) are all yet to debut on WWE television. Patience will bring you a great career for these men.

    Rusev is awful.
    Not just his wrestling but his character. If you can’t get over with the NXT crowd, then you know you’re bad. Their crowd is awesome and put near enough every gimmick over. #TylerBreeze #Breezeisgorgeous

    Rusev? ………..stupid move. I’d bring rawley up before rusev
