Punk happy with being away from WWE: CM Punk made the following Tweet in response to constant questions about when he is returning to WWE… “I am exactly where I belong. No desire to be anywhere else. #thankyouverymuch” The former Champ is taking a much deserved break and there is currently no timeline for his return to the ring. WWE to recruit cut NFL players: Fox Sports is reporting that WWE are in talks with the NFL Players Association about sending cut Football players for wrestling tryouts. Jim Ross is currently the face of the concept… “Everybody doesn’t make the 53-man roster. Some guys are going to be looking for work, and we’ve got some job openings. Maybe we can put the synergies of those two entities together and create something wonderful some day.” WWE have had an on and off internal policy in recent years, focusing on athletes and sports stars ahead of Indy wrestlers. Several Olympic athletes have been on their radar since last Summer. Roman Reigns injures ankle?: Roman Reigns of The Shield reportedly had to be helped backstage following a match at last night’s SmackDown taping. Live fan reports suggest he hurt his knee during a 6 man tag match against Randy Orton, Sheamus and Kofi Kingston. The incident occurred during a spot with Orton on the ring apron. The severity of the injury is not yet known. Hardcore Holly interview highlights: In a recent interview with the UK Sun Hardcore Holly said he tries to watch both WWE and TNA programming… “I try to watch [WWE], but sometimes I can’t because it annoys me. There’s a lot of good stuff though. I’m a huge fan of Fandango and I think Dolph Ziggler is the best right now. I would love to see Ziggler and Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania. I don’t usually buy PPV events, but I would buy that one for sure.” “I enjoy watching TNA and they’ve got great talent across the board, especially Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, James Storm and AJ Styles. Although, I don’t know what the deal with AJ is — they seem to start and stop with him. “I was really impressed when I met Magnus, he’s got a good mind for wrestling and I think he’s going to have a great future in the business.”
