UPDATE: As noted recently, TNA offered AJ Styles a deal to return to the company, a deal that Styles reportedly turned down.

It was reported that TNA offered the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion and current IWGP Heavyweight Champion what is being described as a “significant” deal to be inducted into the TNA Hall Of Fame and wrestle a match at the upcoming Slammiversary pay-per-view later this month.

One source claims the reason that Styles turned down the offer was because his priorities are with both Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling right now.

Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that in addition to the TNA Hall Of Fame induction and Slammiversary offer, TNA was also looking to have Styles work a match at their Bound For Glory pay-per-view later this year.

Speaking of TNA pay-per-view events, the plan is two run two events per year – Slammiversary and Bound for Glory.

ORIGINAL: According to sources, AJ Styles turned down an offer to return to TNA. The company reached out to Styles and offered him a big money deal to return for a TNA Hall of Fame induction along with what would likely have a match at Slammiversary.

Styles turned down the offer, which was made about a month ago, because his priorities are currently with Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling. He is said to be very happy with both companies, especially New Japan.

WWE Employees Keeping Quiet?, Tyson Kidd Injury Update

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

As noted recently, Tyson Kidd is believed to have suffered an injury during his match with Samoa Joe prior to WWE RAW on Monday night.

Kidd’s injury, which is believed to be a spinal injury, resulted in him needing medical attention after the match was over.

Apparently, WWE has a new policy of keeping injuries a secret if they can, with the mindset being that if the knowledge of how long a star is injured and on the sidelines gets out, it will ruin the surprise factor of when and where the talent will be returning.

Although there are no specific details on Kidd’s injury, it is said that this is a case of WWE trying to keep the details quiet. We can confirm that Kidd is hoping to avoid surgery and expects to eventually make a full recovery.

Due to the fact that the free month promotion seems to be a success in terms of subscriptions, it is believed that WWE will continue to offer free months on a pretty regular basis going forward, with August, January and the WrestleMania months as the likely exceptions.

Recently, WWE attorneys attempted to move Cassandra Frazier’s wrongful death lawsuit to Connecticut.

Cassandra’s late husband, Nelson Frazier Jr. was employed by WWE from 1994-1995, 1999, 2000 and 2005-2008, and worked under the character names of Mabel, Viscera and Big Daddy V.

Lawyers noted that Frazier Jr. died from a heart attack with contributing causes of morbid obesity and diabetes according to his official death certificate, and drugs and alcohol were also found in his system.

Additionally, WWE claimed that Cassandra contacted them and said she was destitute, so they sent her a check for $10,000 as an advance on future royalties that would be owed to Nelson Frazier Jr.

In the lawsuit, it was revealed how much Frazier Jr. earned in the aforementioned years that he was employed by WWE. Below are the figures.

1994 – $127,659.15
1995 – $100,648.78

Backstage News – Brock Lesnar’s Drawing Power + The NXT Live Special

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

When WWE announced that Brock Lesnar will be wrestling at what we now know will be a live WWE Network special at Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan on July 4th, ticket sales went from average to an immediate, legitimate sell out. Because of the way WWE is setting up the arena, there were only 6,500 tickets available, however WWE will likely announce a figure close to 11,000. Lesnar will be wrestling Kofi Kingston on the show.

Also, there was still advertising for Daniel Bryan on the tour as recently as this week, however he could be appearing in a non-wrestling capacity, as Hideo Itami, who will not be wrestling, is also scheduled to appear on the show.

Additionally, Japanese legend Tatsumi Fujinami is expected to attend one or both of the shows, with the hook being that WWE put him in their Hall Of Fame this year.

Backstage Updates – Paul Heyman/Brock Lesnar WWE Returns

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Former WWE Diva Michelle McCool recently tweeted a photo of herself in a bikini on the beach. If you’re interested, you can click here to view it. How does she look these days?! Let us know! (The Undertaker is one lucky dude!)

It looks like Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman will be returning to WWE TV sooner than the company was originally planning.

WWE reportedly called both Lesnar and Heyman to return approximately a month earlier than they were planning on having them come back.

WWE was originally looking at having Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at this year’s SummerSlam event on August 23rd, which means Lesnar would have returned a week, or a few weeks, prior to the date of the pay-per-view. Now, the plan is for Lesnar to return in time for a match at the Battleground event on July 19th.

Although the Lesnar-Rollins match at SummerSlam is still a possibility, so much in creative has changed since that idea was in play. So far, Lesnar has been advertised for the June 22nd edition of RAW in Indianapolis, the July 6th RAW in Chicago and the July 13th RAW in Atlanta. Lesnar is also scheduled to work a match at what will now be a live WWE Network special on July 4th at Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan.
