Deontay Wilder has declared that he would be open to following Tyson Fury with a WWE appearance.

Glad to be out

Legendary referee Earl Hebner has compared working in the WWE to being in prison.

Hebner is perhaps the most famous man in the middle in wrestling history and he now works for AEW.

He worked for WWE between 1988 and 2005 and was even part of the infamous 1997 Montreal Screwjob match with Brett Hart and Shawn Michaels.

“It doesn’t feel like you’re in prison here,” Hebner said of AEW as compared to WWE. “You’ve got more leeway and it’s more relaxing. It felt like you were in a prisoner in WWE but not in AEW.

“This is just a more laid back company and at my age, this is great for me.”


Ronda Rousey appears to have hinted her career in WWE is over by announcing her retirement on Total Divas.

The former UFC star has not been seen since losing at Wrestlemania this April to Becky Lynch.

That night she described ‘The Grandest Stage Of Them All’ as the climax of her career.

Rousey tweeted: “#WrestleMania is finally here and I’m ready to go out in flaming glory!!! Don’t miss the climax of my @WWE career on @totaldivas.”

Is this really the end?
