Jeff Jarrett Met With ROH Yesterday
Although the specifics are not yet known, Jeff Jarrett reportedly met with ROH COO Joe Koff yesterday. It could simply be about Jeff Jarrett coming in for some dates, but the speculation is that it has to do with GFW.
It also might have something to do with the ROH talent appearing on the NJPW/GFW PPV, who were booked before GFW was on board.
It looks like Jarrett, who has partnered with promotions all over the world, is setting up some kind of unified banner (a bit like the old NWA) instead of running a standard promotion.
He still has a minority share in TNA.
Rey Mysterio Waiting For WWE Contract To Expire
Rey Mysterio is currently just sitting out his WWE contract so he can jump to AAA and get some other projects off the ground. He’s currently dealing with a hand injury, though he may be refusing to return to the ring at the same time. His deal would have already expired but WWE extended it because of the amount of time he’s spent out with injuries. Legally this seems to be a grey area.
Either way he’s done and simply doesn’t want to be under the WWE banner any longer.
Former WWE Diva Gets Tuition Fees Paid For
Former WWE Diva Maria is the first former contracted talent to be granted an education scholarship. She used the funding to continue a degree course at Johnson & Wales University.
“I was very excited, it’s a tremendous opportunity. I can’t wait to start [classes for my major] at school in December. School will be a lot more relaxing since I have the scholarships.”
Maria is also still working for ROH with her husband Mike Bennett.
