WWE gossip column: Update on Daniel Bryan’s mystery injury, Nia Jax won’t return until 2020 and all of today’s top news
The WWE are entering a new dawn with their Raw and SmackDown brands, but with a European tour on the horizon and Money in the Bank on May 19, the grind never stops.
Let’s dig into today’s rumours in the wrestling business:
Why the Riott Squad was split up
According to Cageside Seats, Liv Morgan’s solo venture to SmackDown is primarily because she is going to be on Total Divas.
The girls are currently away filming in Hawaii whereas Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan remain on Raw.
WWE change War Radiers’ name… again
WWE changed the War Radiers to the Viking Experience in the first place, but they then rectified their mistake on Raw this week with another name change to the Viking Raiders.
For some reason, they’ve changed their names again. On the WWE website, they are now listed as the Viking Warriors.
Daniel Bryan injury update
PW Insider says Daniel Bryan has not been on the road with WWE since WrestleMania and was not backstage at SmackDown this week either.
While it is not another head injury that stole two years off his career, the nature of the injury is being kept under wraps.
Nia Jax injury update
According to Fightful, Nia Jax won’t return to the ring in 2019.
She had surgery on both of her knees and given how bad of a condition they were in, she’s expected to be out for a year. An appearance at the 2020 Royal Rumble would be ‘lucky’.
