WWE news and notes…

- Darren Young appeared on “The Ellen Show” about being the first openly gay WWE performer. His boyfriend Nicky was in the audience and Darren opened the interview by thanking Ellen for “paving the way” for him to be able to come out. You can watch the appearance at this link.

Young said it was the best move he ever made. I thought Ellen also had a really good quote from the piece that I’ll include below:

“It’s OK to be whoever you are you. It’s OK to just be yourself. That is the message.” – Ellen DeGeneres

- Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler for the United States Championship is still in the plans for WWE Night of Champions . We’ll have exclusive live play-by-play coverage here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.

- You can watch a new episode of WWE Outside the Ring with Superstars and Divas going shark diving at this link. It’s also embedded in the video below:

- It was brought up in a promotional appearance with Shawn Michaels and Keith Mark while promoting their Outdoors show on Kansas City radio that Michaels could potentially be coming back to Raw in the next couple of weeks. While HBK tried to downplay it, we’ve heard for several weeks about the possibility of including Michaels in the Triple H/Randy Orton/Daniel Bryan stuff.

- Wade Barrett is apparently in search of new theme music. Read the latest from him at this link.

    Theme music is the least of wade’s worries.

    Regal should “speak up” to defend daniel bryan, and have a match w/ orton. (ala goldust last week). Regal loses, and few weeks after that hbk appears to defend his student for the long term…but do you keep him siding with his student? or does he double cross his student to side with his best friend?

    either way hbk goes, he could always use the argument That hes always “taught daniel to always do whats good for business”. lol he could use that as either a heel or a face.

    if they go that route, they should use regal first tho. he always gets a great pop.one of my favs as well.

    How many times is Wade Barrett going to change his song?

  • Streamz

    Each new theme Barrett gets is always worse than the last. He really needs to ditch the crappy generic rock songs for something a little more ‘Regalesque’ that suits an English brawler.

      God save our queen.

    They should just give him a heavier variation of the Nexus Theme Song instrumental. I miss hearing that song. In fact, I miss the Nexus. But yeah, something like that would revitalize his career and remind everyone of how feared he once was.
