Royal Rumble Return
Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan announced on Monday Night Raw that he will in fact return to active competition and compete in the 2015 Royal Rumble. On January 25th, Philly will welcome to the former champion back to the ring as he goes up against 29 other competitors in an over-the-top-rope battle royale.
Daniel Bryan lost to Bray Wyatt in a match of the year candidate at last year’s Royal Rumble. In the main event, Batista became the last man standing and earned a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Wrestlemania 30. However, Bryan would get the win against Bautista and Randy Orton in a triple threat match at that 30th installment of WrestleMania. Daniel Bryan’s reign would be short-lived as nagging injuries forced him to only be able to defend his title once, coming in a very entertaining match with “The Demon” Kane in the main event of the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
Bryan was then forced to vacate the title, leaving it up for grabs at the 2014 Money in the Bank pay-per-view. The title was won by John Cena, but he would go on to lose the belt to Brock Lesnar at the next SummerSlam. At Royal Rumble, Lesnar will take on Cena once more in the main event while Bryan competes to possibly take on the winner at WrestleMania 31 in Levi’s Stadium of Santa Clara, California on March 29th.
G to Gent to Pro
Former From G’s to Gents star and renown rapper Riff Raff has begun training with Hulk Hogan to become a professional wrestler. Riff Raff is best known now for his humorous rap videos and television appearances with the former rap group Three Loco. His newest album entitled “Neon Icon” peaked at the number 4 slot of the United States Rap chart.
Hulk Hogan posted on his official Twitter page that he can’t wait to begin training with Riff Raff. Many of Riff Raff’s social media pages show that he has begun to train somewhat diligently. He seems to have put his alcohol and party favors to the back seat to be in more beefy and better shape for his new planned career path.
