The Ambrose thing? I just assumed those were all jokes. I just read a fan jumped the barricade and got arrested. Nothing super interesting happened

In your middle school the bully was the guy who stood up to the bossy rear end in a top hat and his two goons who tried to beat the poo poo out of everyone?

He's the guy who's picking on the outcasts who have bad family lives and have banded together to form their own family based on friendship, with the eldest/smartest as the father figure. All they want is for everyone else to know how cool it is to be a part of their family, and this white rear end in a top hat who thinks he's a rapper despite being from an upper class suburb keeps calling them names during class.

Nonsense. I have not yet begun to defile myself.

Bray's thing was more getting Cena to admit he was *already* a monster. Which is pretty well true if you've been watching him for the past ten years.

I've a pretty good record on WWE signings too but comes from friends in the UK and US - likely people here that are friends with.

On an Irish level I knew about Becky Lynch and (short lived signee) Luther Ward's signings six months before they were publicly announced.

Devitt recorded an hour long interview in Ireland last week were he brought up the WWE rumours himself. Only the first part has been released.

Do you think there's any reasonable chance of him returning to NJPW (hopefully with a nice raise)?

Genuinely I don't know. New Japan doesn't white wash history like WWE obviously but still there's a lot of Devitt mentions and references since he left. I am not pretending I know more than what was said to me.

As of three weeks ago Devitt hadn't submitted his medical to WWE that's the strongest fact I know. I believe he is either having the Summer off or is playing the long(er) game on a better deal.

Even though I know he's trustworthy with this stuff, rovert's post doesn't look any more credible than Matlock saying he has a friend on AIM or whatever. Edit: at first glance. Don't want it to look like I'm trashing him

I wonder what is next for Devitt if WWE isn't. ROH maybe?

Believe me I can more than understand. I am not a reporter. Just a big old gossip.

This is doing my head in. Would prefer him to be confirmed as signed with a capital S. Rather than vague "the expectation is that" type statements from Observer or Insider.

Find me on Twitter where I got this from please? Simply doesn't exist. It was a phone conversation.

The Matt and Mauro thing was a mistake on my part should have verified it first. It was a rare instance of me not doing so. Also I was new to this forum and didn't know what was what yet. Hasn't happened since. Ask anyone who knows me will tell you that is not my deal at all. If anything I am known to be too strict on sources and verification.

Nice try though, Yurily.
