Daniel Bryan admission
WWE followers hoping for any clarification on Daniel Bryan’s future are going to have to wait longer before they can get any solid return date.
The Yes Movement leader has revealed that he still has no idea when he might make his ring comeback, with doctors apparently concerned that his concussion troubles may not yet be over.
Bryan also said that his number one dream match would be with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.
When asked about his return to the ring, he said: "I have no idea. I wish I could give you a solid answer. I feel great. I have been cleared by doctors.
"But getting the WWE to clear me has been a little bit sticky, given my concussion history. They are just looking out for my best interests. We are trying to get with more doctors to get me more support to get me back in the ring as soon as possible."
Then, when asked about a potential opponent, he said: "My number one dream match is Brock Lesnar. And I want that to be a WrestleMania match.
"I don't know if the WWE will ever let that happen, because they might be afraid he might legitimately hurt me pretty bad. But I would like to do a major pay-per-view match with Cesaro. I'd like to to do a major pay-per-view match with Seth Rollins.
Triple H the saviour
Meanwhile, Kevin Owens has admitted that he has Triple H to thank for saving his career. The 31-year-old hasn’t long made the transition from NXT to the WWE, but revealed that when the chance came to be called up the pros, it was Triple H who cast the deciding vote in his favour.
Two voters had voted for Owens, two voters had voted against, but Triple H went with the former, and Owens said it was good to have him in his corner.
Kana becomes Asuka
Last but not least, Japanese sensation Kana will now be known as Asuka, having made her long-awaited switch to NXT.
At least that’s what the rumours say, and they’re backed up by a picture doing the rounds on social media that appears to confirm the name-change.
A fan posted the image on Twitter - as seen above - after being in attendance at the latest NXT taping.
