Several wrestlers were released from developmental this week, likely to offset the influx of new talent. The only one to have made it to TV was Tony Briggs. Performance Center departures include Dustin Mueller, Leyvonna Zakari, Laszlo Vandracsek, C. Denzel Freeman and Courtney Freeman.
Dana White Won’t Allow Rousey To Wrestle?
The Fight Network asked UFC President Dana White about Ronday Rousey’s involvement with WWE. He said Wrestlemania 31 was a one off deal, so it seems he’s not currently bargaining on her wrestling next year:

Goldberg Will Wrestle But Now For WWE
Goldberg told Fox Sports that his has full intentions to have another match, but not for WWE:
I’m going to make an appearance in professional wrestling, but it won’t be for the WWE,” Goldberg said. “If I put wrestling boots and wrestling trunks on one last time — and I’m going to — it’s going to be done by me, and me only. Anything I did with the WWE was not therapeutic, by any stretch of the imagination. The reality is that nobody’s going to tell you that because they have an umbilical cord hooked to Vince McMahon. I, ladies and gentlemen, do not. So therefore, I can say what I want and not have any repercussions because I don’t rely on them for a job.
