The Undertaker has been pulled from all events for WWE’s upcoming European tour, according to F4WOnline.com. Last week we reported that Taker had been pulled from 3  out of 5 events, keeping his heavily advertised UK dates.

The Deadman reportedly was telling people backstage at WrestleMania 32 that he is retiring, something he’s said before.

Kane has been announced as his replacement for all five events.

TNA Wrestling will be moving their corporate headquarters later this month in a move which has been planned for some time.

The company has for a while been planning to downsize their operations and are in the process of packing up their offices at Cummins Station in Nashville, according to PWInsider. The offices have been part of TNA since Dixie Carter and Panda Energy took over.

Going forward the company will have their offices located to the warehouse which the company uses for ShopTNA.com.

Rene Dupree’s Lawyers Drops Lawsuit Against WWE

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the attorneys for former WWE Superstar Rene Dupree have officially pulled Dupree’s lawsuit against WWE, which was filed last week due to Dupree reportedly not being paid royalties for his matches that are currently being aired on the WWE Network. The suit was pulled at some point today after Jerry McDevitt, WWE’s attorney, made Dupree’s attorneys aware of a contract that Dupree signed in 2011 that is said to address issues involving subscription fees and royalties, which is a contract that Dupree’s attorneys were reportedly not aware of initially. As a result, Dupree’s attorneys have sent a note to U.S. District Court in Connecticut to have the case voluntarily dismissed.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
