As most of you know by this point, Ivan Koloff recently passed away at the age of 74 when he succumbed to liver cancer over the weekend. Mick Foley, who had known Ivan as a very kind and humble man, told a panel convention in Pensacola that Ivan inspired him to treat people with dignity and respect were he ever to achieve superstardom the way Ivan had in his day.

On this past week's edition of WWE Main Event, R-Truth served as one of the commentators at the booth. Some of these B-shows are known for having wrestlers fill in at the booth from time to time but R-Truth seems to really be winding down in terms of his wrestling career at 45 years old so it may just be time for him to take on a role like that. Perhaps they are grooming him for that position. FREE WRESTLING NEWS WORLD APP IS BACK! - App Store | Google Play

In a funny commercial from a Dutch insurance company called Centraal Beheer, a woman has her purse stolen from her on the boardwalk somewhere. Unfortunately, that thief runs into Hulk Hogan, who proceeds to pummel him with various wrestling moves. However, the thief finds himself not actually getting hurt by any of them because Hogan is a pro wrestler and not actually doing the moves full-force. As Hogan is celebrating the beatdown with the crowd, the thief humourously gets up and walks away. You can watch the full commercial above. Hogan is still being considered for a Wrestlemania appearance with […]

Tamina Snuka, who had until recently been out with an injury since April of last year, returned to the WWE by way of live events teaming with Natalya to defeat Alexa Bliss and Carmella. There's no official word on where she will go or what persona she will take on upon her return to TV but if the live events are any indication, it looks like she will most likely be making her comeback on Smackdown! Live. It's hard to say if she will be a face or a heel as the match involved all four heels but it took […]

Jeff Jarrett and new TNA President Ed Nordholm didn't pull any punches when discussing Dixie Carter's rather poor handling of TNA/Impact Wrestling when asked about it in an interview on Newsweek. For those of you that don't know, Dixie has been officially done with the company for a while now and the new ownership is firmly in control. Jarrett: "It was a black-eye on the industry. It wasn’t fruitful for anyone—whether you’re a fan of, a wrestler, an employee. It was a really ugly, unfortunate situation. It wasn’t good for the industry." Nordholm: "The buck has to stop someplace. The […]

In an interview with Forbes, Kurt Angle spoke on a number of topics including Linda McMahon, who he'd want to induct him into the Hall of Fame (it's a tossup between Cena, Brock, Austin and Undertaker) and his thoughts on John Cena. Angle noted that no other WWE superstar has stayed on top of the world for 13 years like John Cena has and admitted that while he may not even be the greatest athlete of all-time, he is certainly the best superstar in WWE history even for just enduring all the crap he's had to go through for so […]

Based on the picture that he posted, she looks very similar to AJ Lee but nothing has been announced as to her specific role yet. One also has to wonder if they will even refer to her as AJ Lee due to her not being involved with the business anymore and her association with pariah CM Punk.
