Sympathy for Bryan, RAW Hitting a Milestone, Update on WWE in Japan

Partial source:

– In an update on our earlier post about WWE’s return to Japan in August, they have announced some matches now. Yoshi Tatsu will wrestle Chris Jericho on August 20th, John Cena will face Sheamus on that same show and the August 21st show will feature Rey Mysterio vs. Randy Orton and Cena & Tatsu vs. Jericho & Sheamus.

– The 900th episode of WWE’s Monday Night RAW will take place on August 30th in Binghampton, New York.

– The impression within WWE among most is that Daniel Bryan didn’t know about the “Chris Benoit protocol” where talents aren’t supposed to choke each other with objects. Word is that the protocol was something that was talked about in meetings and some of the talents who have been around for a few years knew about but it wasn’t something that was talked about regularly. There is a lot of sympathy right now for Bryan.


    I believe it was Randy Orton who Cena choked out with Handcuffs and it was at the Breaking Point Pay Per View last year. That match is on the Best PPV Matches DVD.

    Should of thought of that before you released him lol

    this just in. cm punk is fired. i guess at a house show he put a bible down on top of rey mysterio after he beat him. It was to go along with his SES gimmick, however those in the locker room have been told that it is too close to what benoit did to his son and therefore he is being future endeavored. management feels bad and will most likely hire him back after his 90 day no compete expires.

  • Gimmick Guy

    lol the “Chris Benoit protocol”. sorry

  • kurt angle

    who really fucking cares

  • We Want Danielson

    So why “fire” him and not just give him a future warning or suspension at the very worst? Far worse has gone on in WWE (and will continue to go on) since the Benoit tragedy. Either somebody was out to against Danielson, and used this as a way to “set him up” or get him fired (via politics)… OR there’s still a slim chance it is just a storyline. Very doubtful, slightly hopeful.

    its spelled BINGHAMTON, NY no P. and the show in Binghamton is being advertised on ticketmaster as Smackdown, not Raw unless they are misinformed.
