Christopher Daniels On Possibly Joining NXT And His Deal With ROH
February 26, 2016 (01:15) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
Christopher Daniels recently spoke with 411Mania.com to promote the ROH 14th Anniversary show. Here are the highlights.
On possibly joining NXT:
I think the timing was just bad for me to do NXT. At this point, I think they would just look at me too old to join, to start for NXT. And while I think I could go and do well, I think on paper to them, its probably just too big of a risk, which is fine. If things had been different " if their attitude towards independent wrestlers was the way it is now, if it was that way five years ago when I left TNA or six years ago, it mightve been a different conversation. But again, I feel like the time where NXT mightve been most interested in me as a character and as a performer was a time where I was under contract with TNA. The timing was just never right for me to do NXT or WWE, and thats just the way it is. If I sit and dwell on that, its sort of an exercise in futility. Id rather focus on the fact that Ring of Honor and I have had a good relationship now for two years and going on strong. Being under contract with them is a very good place for me to be.
On his deal with ROH:
I am exclusive with Ring of Honor. I have a contract with them right now. And Im happy. Im thrilled. Its a great contract for me not only to help in the ring but also to help behind the scenes, to help mold the next generation of stars that will perform for Ring of Honor.

AJ Styles spoke with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to promote Tuesday's WWE SmackDown tapings. Here are the highlights.
On finally making it to WWE:
"I know I took the long route to get here, but it was worth it. The timing was perfect when it came to my career. And I'm ready to be that WWE superstar."
On the WWE locker room:
"I didn't expect (the wrestlers) to be so open to me coming in. These guys bust their tails and made a lot of sacrifices to be here. And here comes this guy out of nowhere. Sometimes you'll walk into a locker room and you'll get, 'What's that guy doing here?' In WWE, it's not like that at all. They literally welcomed me with open arms. I can't describe how great the locker room is. This is why the WWE is successful, because they have a locker room that gets it done. These guys get it and understand, and they're ready to get out there and work. They know we're in the entertainment business, and they respect what I've done. You don't see that everywhere."

Huge Update On Possible Matches For WrestleMania 32
February 25, 2016 (05:30) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
The card for WrestleMania 32 is coming along.
The original plan for Roman Reigns vs. Triple H for the WWE Title was to have a special referee who has a history with HHH, to stack the odds against Reigns. WWE wanted to have Dave Bautista be in that role, but he turned down the idea.
For Brock Lesnar, the original plan was for him to face Bray Wyatt at the event. Wyatt was originally planned to cost Lesnar his match at the Fastlane PPV, but those plans were changed, and WWE decided to have Lesnar face Dean Ambrose at Mania.
Matches that have been announced for the event include:
- Triple H vs. Reigns for the WWE Title
- The Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon in a Hell in a Cell match for control of the company
- Lesnar vs. Ambrose in a street fight
Here are the matches that will likely be featured on the card:
- New Day vs. League of Nations.
- The Andre the Giant Battle Royal
- Charlotte will defend the Divas Title against the winner of Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch on Mondays RAW in Nashville. However, there is speculation that WWE books an angle where there is no winner in the match. Instead, they would book a triple threat match between Charlotte, Banks, and Lynch at WrestleMania 32 for the title.
- Steve Austin, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, and Ric Flair will be appearing at the event. Johnson will be the host of the show while WWE still has not decided on what roles Austin and Michaels will have. Dave Meltzer did note that hes heard two different scenarios discussed for Michaels, neither of which involves him wrestling in a match.
