Mick Foley Wasn’t Dissing Batista, KENTA To WWE?, Christian’s Return, Jake’s HoF Video

- Mick Foley followed-up on his epic Royal Rumble rant by clarifying it wasn’t meant as a knock on Batista and also looked at the BBC covering Daniel Bryan’s snub. You can read his latest at this link.

- KENTA from Pro Wrestling NOAH is at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida where WWE officials will reportedly take a look at him. He’s a helluva talent, who I don’t think needs a tryout. Someone get this man a contract!

- As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, Christian will return at this week’s episode of Smackdown after missing several months due to a concussion. You can watch the promo vignette for him at this link or embedded in the video below:

- The 2014 WWE Hall of Fame induction video for Jake “The Snake” Roberts is online at this link. We also have it in the video below:

    Christian should have been in the rumble, I mean JBL was in there just to boost Reigns’ eliminations up.

    I wonder what Kenta would use as a finisher if he made it up to the main roster seeing as how Bryan, Punk and AJ are using three of his. Quite literally “his” in Punk’s case.

  • K!NG

    Kenta vs punk!!!

  • Ricky

    Saw KENTA live twice, First in a tag team match with Marofuji vs. The Briscoe’s, second vs Delirious. Great wreslter hopefully he can use the GTS

  • BigMike

    EVERYONE goes to the performance center or NXT or whatever development system for awhile to learn the “WWE way of working” which IMO is total BS

    • Ricky

      WWE talent is on the road over 300 days a year. So to work a more conservative style that won’t burn you or the fans out just makes sense.

    KENTA is PW Noah’s best talent and in my opinion the very best Pro wrestler in Japan today.
    He also invented the GTS and the Yes lock and even Daniel Bryan’s high knee strike finisher was one of KENTA’s creations.
    But I sincerely doubt he is considering going to WWE.
    I mean New Japan Pro Wrestling has thrown huge amounts of cash his way to try and sign him but he has stayed loyal to Noah.
    Not to mention WWE’s track record of treating Japanese talent (anyone remember Yoshi Tatsu) is not something Japanese wrestlers are fond off.
    Plus wrestling in Japan is a lot more physical and less cartoonish than the U.S. brand.
    And I know for a fact that most Japanese wrestlers today really look down on the WWE style.
    So as cool as having KENTA in WWE would be I doubt it will happen.
