WWE fans, a very warm welcome.
It’s our genuine hope that you’re holed up somewhere nice and cosy, with nothing to do but catch up on the latest news concerning the WWE.
We understand that isn’t really pragmatic for most of you, but in any event we’re going to give you the news anyway. Read on below for more.
Stone Cold 99.9% sure over WrestleMania 32
There are millions of fans the world over who would like to see Stone Cold Steve Austin return to the wrestling ring at WrestleMania 32, but the man himself has now confirmed that he’s 99.9% sure he won’t do it.
In an interview with Brian Fritz for Fox Sports, Austin said that he was almost certain he’d had his last match, citing having lost his hunger for the sport.
He didn’t completely rule out a return in the future, which is something I suppose, but for all intents and purposes it doesn’t look promising moving forward.
"I think 99.9 percent I've had my last match," said Austin.
"If I felt froggy and wanted to jump for any particular reason, just because I said right now I have the fever for it, I'd like to do it. But for all practical, intrinsic, whatever kind of purposes, I'm done.
"Again, if I felt like it, could I? Yeah. Would I? In a dream world. possibly. I'm not trying to promote a match and pretty much I am done. I would always reserve the option."
Orton injury update
Elsewhere, Randy Orton is facing as long as six months on the sidelines after suffering a dislocated shoulder.
The WWE have confirmed that the superstar won’t be in contention for a return to the ring until well into 2016, with his problems including stretched ligaments and a partially torn rotator cuff.
It’s needless to say surgery to fix the issues is needed.
Van Dam's strange excuse
And to finish, Rob Van Dam has quickly poured water on the idea that he will feature at WrestleMania 32 next year, using a rather bizarre reason as the excuse.
Rather than citing his age, lack of motivation or simply the fact he’s not interested, Van Dam said the period in question was one of the worst times to travel because of uncertain weather. Right you are, Rob.
