    Pro Wrestling Sheet‘s Ryan Satin is reporting Roman Reigns issued the following statement following Richard Rodriguez’s claims that Reigns was a former client:

    “I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition. I learned from the mistake I made nearly two years ago and paid the penalty for it. Since then, I’ve passed 11 tests as part of WWE’s independent drug testing program.”

    Roman Reigns Named As Alleged Client By Accused Steroid Dealer

    Rodriguez is the former Iron Addicts Gym owner in Miami that was arrested last February in a DEA raid, and was accused of operating an international steroid distribution ring.

    Reigns was suspended by WWE for violating the company’s Wellness Policy in 2016, but that was reportedly due to taking Adderall, although WWE did not publicly confirm that as why Reigns received his first Wellness Policy test violation.

    Royal Rumble

    WWE.com posted the following preview for the WWE Championship match at this year’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view after it was announced on WWE Smackdown Live last night:

    There is certainly a line between honor and hubris, and WWE Champion AJ Styles is straddling it. After losing non-title singles matches to Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn on the Dec. 26 and Jan. 2 editions of SmackDown LIVE, respectively, thanks in large part due to interference in both bouts, The Phenomenal One took drastic action, and, in a moment of frustration, challenged his foes to a 2-on-1 Handicap Match!

    SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan thought it was a brilliant idea, not only making the Handicap Match official, but announcing that the WWE Title Match would happen at Royal Rumble, much to the shock of all parties involved, including SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon.

    Will Styles add to his incredible legacy by overcoming such a daunting challenge to retain the WWE Title at Royal Rumble? Or will Owens & Zayn continue to run roughshod over Team Blue by benefitting from their numbers advantage and add the WWE Championship to their arsenal?

    Find out at Royal Rumble, streaming live on WWE Network on Sunday, Jan. 28, at a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.

    AJ Styles recently spoke with Jay Reddick for the Orlando Sentinel; you can read a few highlights below:

    AJ Styles comments on being heralded as one of wrestling’s best: 

    “I take a lot of pride in what I do. No matter who I’m in the ring with, I want it to look like what it’s supposed to be. We call it sports entertainment, but it’s supposed to be a contact sport. I want to make that in-ring contact as real as possible, and [also make it real] outside the ring.

    “The magic is making the fans question whether these two guys really like each other or hate each other. That performance is what the business is all about … it’s the storylines that people remember.”

    Styles comments on his WWE debut at the Royal Rumble still holding a special place in his heart: 

    “Everything pales in comparison to the Royal Rumble. The response I got that night from the fans, after a couple of years out of the U.S. mainstream, is something I’ll never forget. I was really worried about how much the people would actually remember me, but that response made it something really special.”

    Styles comments on bonding with the WWE roster through video games: 

    “These are a group of guys and girls I really enjoy going to work with. You walk in and you’ve got [the New Day’s] Xavier Woods and his video games – that’s right up my alley. So a bunch of us start playing UFC or Madden, and that’s fun. Because you know, idle hands are the devil’s workshop.”

  • Sami Callihan On Impact Wrestling Getting Attention, His Relationship With oVe, CZW, What Makes Him Different 0 CommentsPosted by captgenekelly on November 24, 2017 under Wrestling

    Sami Callihan recently spoke with Interactive Wrestling Radio; you can read a few transcribed highlights or listen to the show in the embedded player:

    Sami Callihan on the negative media about Impact Wrestling, his experience so far: 

    “Well, the first week I was there man, it is pretty bad ass. They are pretty much giving us the opportunity. I think the big thing is management hasn’t always been the best. The best way I can describe it is if you were a fan of WCW back in 1992-1993 when people were running WCW that wasn’t wrestling fans, that didn’t know wrestling. That kind of thought, “I’m going to run this company and do what I want.” I kind of attribute it to that. That kind of is where TNA (Impact) was for a while. But now, they have smart people on top. They have guys on top that were on top when TNA was at their best. Now, Scott D’Amore is helping with, majorly helping with the company. Sonjay Dutt, majorly helping with the company. Abyss, majorly helping with the company. These are guys that were helping with the company when it first was amazing. Change doesn’t happen overnight. But, these guys are slowly putting plans into motion to change TNA back to what it was. Within the next year, TNA is going to totally pull a 180 and people are going to start noticing it again.”

    Sami on his relationship with oVe: 

    “It is pretty bad ass, at the end of the day, that I get to be on national TV with my absolute two best friends on the planet. Two guys that are my absolute brothers with Dave and Jake Crist. I don’t even care what I’m doing with them as long as I can continue doing stuff. I remember seeing the first pictures of us coming out as OVE and it almost brings me to tears. We’re 3 messed up kids from Ohio that went to bat for each other and had each other’s back when we don’t really have family. We’re each other’s family. Like I said, three messed up kids from Ohio are together and changing the wrestling world.”

    “A lot of people don’t realize about them, they broke out before I did. They used to go by Irish Airborn until 2008 or 2009. They were one of the first people ever offered an ROH contract and Dave Crist blew out his knee and was out for almost a year and a half. That kind of messed that up. At one point, they were going to get signed to WWE and another one got hurt. That happened. Every little thing that could ever happen to those guys always went wrong. Now, finally, everything has come together. Before I came back to the indies, Jake had actually retired. He was having his retirement tour. We all talked him into staying. We kind of revamped ourselves as a unit together. We’ve been off to the races ever since.”

    Sami comments on Combat Zone Wrestling still going strong: 

    “It is just that it is different. Believe me, man. When I took over… I’m not the only creative force behind Combat Zone, there’s a whole committee that I kind of oversee and we get things going. But, Combat Zone, no matter what, is always going to be in the forefront even if it is just people shitting on the product. CZW is the red-headed step-child of wrestling where even if they do something amazing, it is a fun company and a cool company but people find something to pick apart on. Or, they’ll do something ridiculous and get a whole bunch of heat for no reason. Their tag line is “Wrestling Fears CZW” and it is kind of true. They are always in some kind of tabloid-esque news story because they’re just the company that everybody loves to pick on. It is one of the hardest projects I’ve ever had to run in my life. It’s its own different animal.” He continues, “They (CZW) should have blown up years upon years upon years ago. They have had so many opportunities. They were in the movie The Wrestler as a main company. They have had a vice documentary about them. They’ve been on multiple television shows. It always seems like there is just one thing holding them back that won’t let them just click into the mainstream. That is what I’m trying to do. The haters can continue to hate. But, CZW is going to continue to be around like it always has been.” He concludes, “People don’t realize, if it wasn’t for CZW, there wouldn’t be Dean Ambrose. There wouldn’t be Luke Harper. There wouldn’t be Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Claudio (Cesaro).. Pretty much everyone came through CZW at one point or another.”

    Sami comments on what sets him apart: 

    “I always wanted to be different. I consider my style controlled chaos. I’ve learned that style from a bunch of different times and influences throughout my career. Like, I remember at one point in my career I wanted to be a Junior Heavyweight and I wanted to do a bunch of flips. And then, I wanted to be like a big guy and do power moves. Oh, I want to be a hardcore guy and do hardcore stuff. Oh, I want to be a lucha guy and do lucha stuff. Somehow, going through those phases of my career, I somehow found the right recipe of what Sami Callihan is and it just seems to work.”
