WWE Releases Coming Soon?, Joke at the Royal Rumble and More

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

– It’s expected that WWE will be releasing several more wrestlers between now and WrestleMania.

– The NFL’s Atlanta Falcons will be co-promoting WrestleMania 27 with WWE. Part of their role with the promotion is to sell corporate sponsorships, similar to the deal made with the Arizona Cardinals for this year’s WrestleMania in Phoenix.

– There was a joke going around backstage at Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view in Atlanta among the WWE talents to avoid all taxis, a rib at the incident with Gregory Helms and Chris Jericho.

    rumble was worth the money to me but 39.95 isn’t a major hit in my expenses, plus it has been almost a year since i ordered a ppv, rumble is the one i have always watched since i was a kid, seeing the very first one.

    Rumble was pretty good. I will be SHOCKED if Tyler Reks isn’t released. Possible releases: Curt Hawkins, Jimmy Wang Yang, Slam Masta J, Kung Fu Naki, and if there is a God… Hornswoggle. Nah, Hornswoggle might get a 10 year deal.

    Live shows are almost always better than seeing things on tv. Not always, but almost.

    I thought it was a good ppv. But i have no idea how it looked on TV, but i was there and it was awesome. I guess it is just better live than it is on TV. idk, but it was one of the best shows ive ever been too. Expessially with Edge’s Return! He is one of my all time favs and i was so happy to have been there.

    The only joke at the Royal Rumble is that I paid for it… I want my money back…
