    Rodriguez however took the photo as an opportunity to vent his frustration at Triple H and the WWE, with the 28-year-old posting the following message to Steen on Twitter:

    “Congrats…I hope he at least looked at you while shaking hands at one point and didn’t call you fat as f**k. #OhMemories.”

    “#BumbleBee was his name for me… Don’t even think he ever knew my real name,”

    Both tweets have since been deleted by Rodriguez, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported last week that Rodriguez’s weight was a problem with WWE officials and likely factored in his departure from the organization. Rodriguez was released by the organization on July 30th.

      The Best Matches Of G1 Climax 24 (So Far…)

      G124_zps76b57c6cWe are a little more than halfway through with New Japan Pro Wrestling’s biggest tournament and quite possibly the biggest wrestling tournament this year, G1 Climax. For 24 years, this event have produced star-making performances from the likes of Keiji “The Great” Mutoh, Masahiro Chono, Shinya Hashimoto, Hiroshi Tanahashi, and more recently Kazuchika Okada to name a few. It is primarily a round-robin contest where a number of wrestlers are separated into two blocks where the winner of each block will face each other in the finals. Last year saw Tetsuya Naito win it in what was considered the greatest G1 of all-time.

      It is the greatest two weeks this summer not named the World Cup and really is the high point for the second best time in wrestling. This year New Japan is looking to up the ante with their shows and they could have very well done that. I was originally going to post the 10 best matches so far, but I came to the realization that ten matches were just not enough. The quality already has been out of this world and we still have five more days to go. So for now I will give you 15 matches that are well worth the watch from this tournament.

      NXT Just Got Real: What WWE’s Star-Studded Signings Can Bring To The Company

      Vince-Kenta-HHH

      If you were to tell me five years ago that WWE would sign KENTA, Fergal Devitt, and Kevin Steen, let alone within the same year, I would have Flair Flopped into laughter. Even with the acquisitions of CM Punk and Daniel Bryan (who was hired, fired, then re-hired again), I always looked at WWE as a promotion unwilling to give talented, well-traveled workers with a heavy reputation any chance at succeeding in McMahon Land.

        Kurt Angle thinks CM Punk may have jeopardized his wrestling future

        kurt-angle

        Former WWE superstar Kurt Angle was a guest on Jim Ross’s podcast “Ross Report.” Listen to the show here. Kurt Angle has warned CM Punk that his alleged actions could have jeopardized his wrestling future. Angle spoke of his respect for Punk but was wary of the rumors that the now departed wrestler had questioned the WWE’s policy of booking veterans to return for big events on a part-time basis.

        “I wanted to contact him and say ‘Listen, Punk, you’re working full time now but its not going to last forever and there’s going to come a time when you want to go part time too,” Kurt Angle explained to The Ross Report.

        One of the many rumors is CM Punk was angered by the likes of The Rock being handed top bill matches by Vince McMahon. At present time CM Punk being seen in a WWE ring anytime soon is highly unlikely. The WWE did not try to renew the wrestlers contract this past week.

        “You’re going to be able to have that spot at WrestleMania as a part time worker so try not to put the fire out before you end up there because there might come a time when you might want to do that.”

        Angle, a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, spoke of his own desire to return to the WWE in the future, Kurt Angle’s contract with TNA Wrestling is up on September 21, and he has indicated that he is open to returning to WWE.

        “I am interesting in talking with WWE, I do want to know what they have to say. I always said that I would finish off my career there, but I just don’t know right now.”

        The Olympic Gold medalist has not been seen in the WWE since 2006 when he left the company as one of its highest paid wrestlers and have been with TNA ever since.
