WWE News Roundup: Top star shuts down rumors of signing with the company, Veteran compares female superstar to The Rock, Karrion Kross wants to face returning Superstar

Welcome to another installment of the daily WWE News Roundup, where we attempt to bring you the biggest news and stories from the world of sports entertainment. In today’s edition we’re going to look at some compelling stories centered around big names like Bray Wyatt, Bayley and The Rock.

Rumors are circulating that former Universal Champion Bray Wyatt will be returning to WWE soon. He was one of the many superstars to be fired due to budget cuts. However, some reports have also noted that Vince McMahon didn’t like him very much and that Triple H is very interested in having him back. Recently returned Superstar Karrion Kross wants a match against him.


3.) Karrion Kross shows interest in a match against Bray Wyatt

Former NXT Champion Karrion Kross recently returned to WWE and has been involved in a program with Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns. Pro wrestling enthusiast Joel Gertner recently tweeted that he would like to see a match between Kross and Wyatt, to which Kross responded with a video:

“One day maybe #WWE #WrestleMania, @realKILLERkrosswill fight @Windham6. If that happens, I might not have to watch anymore #wrestlingmore. I mean where do you go from there? #WWERAW‘ Joel Gertner tweeted.

The former NXT Champion’s video response indicated that he was very interested in the match. Both Kross and Wyatt share some similarities, as they have unconventional gimmicks straight out of a horror movie.


2.) Vince Russo compared Bayley and The Rock

Discussing SportsKeeda’s Legion of RAW, Vince Russo said she needs to work on her mic skills. Russo pointed out that Bayley basically does the same promo every week on RAW, where she calls people idiots. He said that superstars like The Rock would come up with different promos every week:

“I remember someone like The Rock, again all I think about is Bayley and the idiotic promos. Every shirt Rock wore when he went out and did a promo were $500 shirts. He wore them once. Every time I came to the TV bro, as soon as he saw me, he would run over to tell me all the stuff he had dreamed up during the week,” Russo said.

Russo stressed how important it was for Bayley to improve their game. Discussing Stone Cold’s legendary 3:16 promo, he hinted that The Role Model needs to come up with something so iconic to grab fans’ attention.


1.) Konosuke Takeshita says he’s not interested in joining WWE

Today I am leaving America. I have so many great memories over the last 4 months. Thank you all for being so nice to me. @AEW

AEW star Konosuke Takeshaita has been impressive lately in his matches against big names like Claudio Castagnoli, Adam Page and Jon Moxley. There have been rumors that WWE may be interested in signing him as they are looking for a ‘big’ Japanese Superstar to add to the roster. However, Takeshita told CULTAHOLIC that he was not interested at the moment:

“To be honest, I don’t care about WWE anymore. My next goal is more fights in AEW I hope,” said Takeshita. “So I have to go back to Japan in August and September. Maybe, not decided yet, I hope to return to America in October,” Takeshita said

The 27-year-old was heralded as a future world champion by Chris Jericho. It looks like he’s trying to build his resume for now while working for various promotions, including AEW.
