The WWE Morning Paper: Alberto Del Rio, Daniel Bryan, Kurt Angle

So you’re getting ready for school or work in the morning and want to read up on fresh content before leaving for the day? Come read The WWE Morning Paper! This will be your weekday (possibly future weekends as well) hub for the latest news inside and outside the squared circle for Vince McMahon’s company as well as TNA sprinkled in (unless they get cancelled).

Here’s the wrestling information you need to know for August 21st, 2014 version of The WWE Morning Paper.


  • Daniel Bryan is expected to be out another few months after he undergoes Tommy John surgery.
  • Hulk Hogan is set to make a cameo in a movie.
  • A TNA Knockout disclosed her pregnancy.

It was revealed on tonight’s episode of Impact Wrestling that Christy Hemme is pregnant. Hemme spoke to Fit Pregnancy about being an expectant mother, and said that she was five months pregnant. She also revealed that she already has a name picked out.


  • Apparently, WWE doesn’t think as highly of Dean Ambrose as we do.

While Dean Ambrose may be developing a strong following on his own pretty quickly in WWE, officials do not see him as being ready for a main event spot yet.

In an interesting update to the Alberto Del Rio situation, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is saying that part of why he was fired could be the lawsuit against Big Show where someone in production sued for Show getting too rough with him. Keeping Del Rio on could have strengthened that case and if the social media manager had followed through on his apparent threat to sue, WWE would have been in a bad position.

  • Temper your expectations on Kurt Angle coming back to WWE.

It was reported by Mark Madden that Kurt Angle outright called Triple H to inquire about a WWE return and Triple H blew him off. So Angle decided to call Vince McMahon, who told him Triple H is in charge of talent decisions now. This was a risky play on Angle’s part because it pissed Triple H off that Angle would go over his head. It certainly doesn’t look like he’ll be coming back to WWE.


  • IGN sat down with Chris Jericho and cover multiple topics including if John Cena should turn heel and changing his theme.
  • Our own Jordan Campbell feels WWE is succeeding with the Cena-Lesnar feud.

Three days after Brock Lesnar defeated John Cena in overwhelming fashion at WWE SummerSlam for the WWE World Heavyweight title, the fascination over Lesnar’s victory remains at a high point.

  • Jim Ross explained what he thinks is next for Lesnar.

Who’s next for WWE Champion Brock Lesnar? Lots of people are wondering….

I say don’t count out a ‘regrouped’ John Cena which makes great sense to me. Others could include to varying degrees Cesaro, Big ShowMark Henry and a surprise entrant/possibility that I talk about on the Grande Podcast this week.

  • WWE wants you to forget that Ryback was once Skip Sheffield.
