Drew McIntyre Assures Fans He Will Be At WWE Royal Rumble



Drew McIntyre

Despite being tested positive for Coronavirus this week, Drew McIntyre has assured fans he will be part of WWE’s Royal Rumble.

The WWE Champion is currently scheduled to go one on one with Goldberg at the event on January 31. Obviously, his positive test has thrown that into doubt, however, the Scotsman has assured fans that he will be appearing and the match will happen.

Drew was a part of CES 2021 and he gave an update on his health as well as discussing the upcoming PPV.

“Like I mentioned on Monday, I’m one of the fortunate ones that aren’t experiencing any symptoms, but I just wanted to reinforce, WWE wanted to reinforce to everyone how important it is to continue to listen to all the health guidelines, to wear your mask, practice social distancing and thankfully we are so strict in regards to our testing that the test found out that I was — that I tested positive and that we couldn’t risk having me in the building around our employees, affect their health and perhaps affect one of their family members’ health that’s more of the high-risk category. But, thankfully I’m feeling good right now.

Absolutely none [questions if he’ll be at the Royal Rumble]. I will be there. I’m following the doctor’s protocol, I will be there. I’m gonna face Bill Goldberg, somebody I watched as a kid. Very exciting for me.” (h/t to for the transcriptions)

Nick Aldis Discusses The Upcoming Return Of NWA Powerr



Nick Aldis

The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis recently spoke about the current plans for the return of NWA Powerr.

The show is set to return in 2021 following a break due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but there is currently no date attached to when that will be.

However, during a recent interview with ‘The Wrestling’s Cool’ podcast, Nick Aldis gave a hint at those plans, stating that he was “conservatively guessing” things will be back for Spring. He also revealed he has reached out to a few people he would like to be involved, but didn’t want to name any names.

“Depends on when we start up again. I would conservatively be guessing that we’ll be ready to do Powerrr again by the spring, and so I know who I — and it’s not up to me. I have obviously a fairly significant amount of influence, but I know who I would like to see on the show and there’s a few guys who I’ve reached out to and I’ve talked to Billy [Corgan] and Pat Kenney [Simon Diamond] and said, ‘Look, I’ve got this idea for this guy.’ But, I’m reluctant to say too much because one, given our track record of getting guys over and recognizing talent, the second I say their names, someone else is gonna try and sign them, and two because who knows what’s gonna happen with them between now and the spring? Some of them may end up signing a contract somewhere else so I don’t want to — I just don’t want that attention to go there.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)

Chavo Guerrero Reveals Why He Hasn’t Returned To WWE



chavo guerrero

Chavo Guerrero has an incredible career with WWE, but he hasn’t been back to the company since 2011, and he has explained why.

Guerrero recently spoke with Rick Bassman’s ‘Talking Tough’ show, where he discussed the possibility of having a producer role behind the scenes.

Guerrero revealed that he hasn’t been asked, plus right now he is too busy to be able to give up anything for that role right now. However, Chavo admitted he was open to the idea if he can make money, as he also spoke about the lessons he learned from Vince McMahon.

“Well, few things. First of all, they haven’t asked. Second of all, I would have to give up too much to sit there and go back to WWE full-time. WWE takes — you have to give up what you’re doing in your life to do that and I have so many other things going on with Hollywood and my own ventures, my own cigar company, my own beer company, my podcast so it’s hard. I think it’d be hard for me to give up everything like that, so with me, I just, I don’t know man. Sometimes you just don’t have the best relationship with them sometimes, and also, I quit there. I left there and sometimes they don’t like when you leave there but that being set aside, it’s all about making money. If we can make money and Vince [McMahon] thinks like, ‘Hey Chavo, let’s bring you back in,’ make him money, make me money then it works out. If it doesn’t then it doesn’t. There’s no hard feelings. It is what it is. Everything that I’m doing now is really because of what I learned from Vince McMahon, so that’s the truth. You know, with TV production and camera work and directing and just everything like that is really learned from Vince. Now I’ve taken it and run with it a little bit but, really the basis all came from Vince.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)
