The Double-Sized Morning Roundup 6/9/14

MNR

Time to make the donuts. We missed the roundup yesterday due to our day jobs so this morning I have an oversized edition for you to get you all caught up on the news fit to print from the weekend through Monday.

WWE Championship Announcement– Wrestling Observer/F4W

In case you missed it last night, HHH & Stephanie McMahon opened Raw announcing that Daniel Bryan had been stripped of the championship and at Money in the Bank the ladder match will be for the belt.

Jim Ross Released from Hospital – TMZ

Best wishes to Good Ole JR, who’s now home recovering from a hospital stay over the weekend. While there he found out he had suffered a minor undiagnosed stroke in the past. Scary stuff. All the best to the Hall of Famer.

Sting Rumor – Lords of Pain

Yesterday it was reported a casting agency was looking for a Sting body double and extras for an orchestra wearing Sting masks. One report says it’s for WWE’s Sting DVD another says it’s not for WWE directly, but an agency who works with WWE.  Major takeaway here is he’s not signed and not to expect Sting on Raw anytime soon. My guess is it’s for the DVD.

Hit the jump for the rest of your double dose with news on a UFC fighter joining ROH, Tommy Dreamer lashing out at TNA, and oh, Taryn Terrell and Velvet Sky kissing.

Tommy Dreamer upset at Dixie Carter– WrestleZone

TNA pulled Bully Ray from Dreamer’s House of Hardcore event this weekend causing Dreamer to cut a scathing promo on TNA owner Dixie Carter. The two organizations have worked together in the past but this was apparently not part of a larger storyline.

Tom Lawlor negotiating with Ring of Honor– Pro Wrestling.net

UFC Fighter “Dirty” Tom Lawlor got some TMZ pub of his own this weekend. Lawlor is a fan and managed ROH Tag Team Champions ReDragon at the last major ROH show in New York. Apparently, he’s been given the blessing by UFC to pursue a permanent deal with Ring of Honor in his downtime from UFC.

And finally…

Velvet Sky Kisses Taryn Terell– Wrestling INC.

Here’s a present for missing the roundup yesterday. Enjoy. Creeps. 🙂

    I’ll never forget the UFC Fight Night at the Patriot Center where Lawlor came out to “Real American” waving a big US flag, wearing a feather boa, and cupping his ear every ten feet on his way to the octagon. Immediately out of my seat.
