Big Show Comments on his WWE Status
Big Show recently sat down with Tim Fiovanti of ESPN to discuss his career, his future and improving health.
“The past four years, I’m not sure if anyone has noticed but I’ve been struggling with some really bad injuries. WWE and Vince [McMahon], because of the great and incredible new crop of talent we’ve had, have given me the chance to develop their brand and become the superstars they can be. But it also gives me a chance to maintain, some things, and take care of some stuff.”

“Through diet and exercise it has been a blessing. I’m on board with it, I understand it and I’m motivated to do it. The results are happening. I feel great, I feel younger. I’m definitely not as sluggish as I was before. The ability for me to compete at a better level is definitely in sigh and I think that’s reinvigorating for me.”
“I’m not going to go out and try to be world champion or have some kind of dominating title run. I’ve had those years, I’ve done that. I understand this is a new era and there’s a new changing of the guard. I know I still have some time left on this contract. It depends on how my role is going to change. WWE is home, it’s a family. I’ll always be a part of this as long as I can contribute in some positive way. But I know there’s a time when the sun sets on everything.”

Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows became stars in NJPW as part of the Bullet Club along with former Universal Champion Finn Balor. 
They also then teamed with AJ Styles after Balor left Japan to sign for WWE. When the duo signed for WWE months later, they were able to reunite with AJ Styles for a while, before they were then drafted to separate brands back in July. 
Finn, Gallows and Anderson are all now on the Raw brand and rumours of a reunion have been circling for a while, but it is only recently that the stars themselves have actually spoke about it. 

Gallows recently commented about The Bullet Club on the Same Roberts Podcast and said: ““Let (Balor) come back. Let us reform the original Bullet Club. We’ll just tear everything apart. That’s one of those pitches we’ve thrown. We’ll see if it sticks or not.”
Of course, Balor is out of action until WrestleMania season after he suffered a torn labrum in his SummerSlam match against Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship.
These comments come just weeks after Finn Balor appeared on the same podcast and hinted that a Bullet Club Reunion would ‘always be a possibility.’

The Reason Why the WWE Ditched the King of the Ring PPV
During a recent Q&A session on his ‘Something to Wrestler With’ podcast, Bruce Prichard revealed the real reason as to why the WWE decided to drop the King of the Ring PPV event.
According to Prichard, Vince McMahon was never a fan of the concept as it was the company’s lowest grossing PPV event.

“The pay-per-view events during the summer didn’t do all that well, and King of the Ring wasn’t a large grossing pay-per-view, so Vince wasn’t really excited about it, and decided to change it up.”

Red flares raged and drums beat as tens of thousands of French marched in fury at President Emmanuel Macron’s bid to overhaul the country’s exorbitant pension system.

As they rumbled down Boulevard Voltaire towards Place de la Bastille, birthplace of the Revolution, propped up against a tree, a sarcastic banner read: “Will there be strikes this Christmas?”

It certainly looks that way. Two weeks into crippling industrial action that has spread to railways, schools, hospitals, air traffic control, sewage workers and lawyers, government and unions are digging in for a protracted fight to convince the French who holds the keys to saving the country’s embattled social model.

WWE announced the following:

Kurt Angle to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2017
It’s true, it’s true! Kurt Angle will be taking his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame’s Class of 2017 just two days before WrestleMania 33, as first reported by
“Kurt Angle’s accomplishments both in the Olympics and WWE were extraordinary,” said WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative Paul Levesque. “He was one of the most gifted athletes to ever enter the ring, and we are honored to welcome him into the WWE Hall of Fame.”
Before becoming a legend of the squared circle, the proud Pittsburgh native was a world-class amateur competitor, becoming a two-time All-American and a two-time NCAA Champion while wrestling for Clarion University in his home state of Pennsylvania. His incredible amateur career culminated at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, where he fought off the incredible pain of a “broken freakin’ neck” to win the gold medal for the United States of America.
In 1998, Angle made the jump from amateur to professional wrestling by signing with WWE. One year later, the gold medal grappler made his debut at Survivor Series 1999, picking up the first win of an undefeated streak that saw Angle capture the European and Intercontinental Championships. His unbelievable rookie campaign culminated at WWE No Mercy in October 2000, where he defeated The Rock to capture his first WWE Championship.
Though his wrestling ability was unparalleled, Angle adapted to the entertainment side of sports-entertainment better than anyone could have expected. Whether it was preaching his “three Is” – intensity, integrity and intelligence – taking part in a five-second pose with Edge & Christian or joining “Stone Cold” Steve Austin for a backstage sing-along, The Olympic Hero was able to make the WWE Universe laugh when he wasn’t wowing them with his athleticism.
By the time he left WWE in 2006, Angle had become one of the company’s most decorated stars in a short period of time. His resume includes four reigns as WWE Champion, a World Heavyweight Championship, the WCW, United States, Hardcore, Intercontinental and World Tag Team Championships. In addition, Angle was the 2000 King of the Ring and even served as General Manager of SmackDown.
In honor of these accomplishments, along with his incredible contributions to the WWE Universe during his storied career, Angle will be enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame.
Tickets for the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony will be available starting this Friday, Jan. 20, at 10 a.m. ET. For complete information on how you can see Kurt Angle take his place in sports-entertainment history, visit
