The Grapevine (1/6/17): Guess Lesnar Wasn't Last



Good morning, and this is your daily Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the founded and unfounded rumors abound the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the evening.

The first WON haul of the year is in, and we've got some good ones:



  • Goldberg is signed for the next three pay-per-views. He's officially appearing at the Royal Rumble (you already knew that), RAW's Fastlane event on March, and WrestleMania 33. In between those he's scheduled to make regular TV appearances. (Source: WON)

We say: Seems good, and it's good for Goldberg if it means that he gets to continually put himself in shape for this. At least it's not the type of deal where he comes and goes as he pleases, unlike some other legends we know. *side-eye*


  • WWE is still interested in signing in either one or both of the Hardys. TNA has been trying to sign them to exclusive deals, but they don't have the money for it because of their work in the independents. It's said that Matt is trying to leverage for more creative control if only to expand the world he's created with the Broken Matt Hardy character. (Source: WON)

We say: If we were the Hardys, we'd turn down any and all offers from the WWE. Think about it: the Hardys are big enough names in the business and their renaissance has been notable enough for them to draw eyes wherever they go, they're still in charge of their characters and angle, and they still make more money wrestling a lighter schedule. They can't guarantee that WWE would continue to let them do their own thing, and it would be punishing for them as well. Keep doing your thing.


  • Jeff Jarrett is back in TNA in a creative position, but won't be making any on-camera appearances for the company at all. GFW is still a thing and they have TV deals that Jarrett is obligated to honor. There's no further word yet on Dixie Carter's resignation and Anthem's full takeover. (Source: PWInsider)

We say: It's an interesting development. We're not sure Jarrett back to run things is good for the company, but it's certainly better that a wrestler is in the position than Dixie Carter. At the very least, Jarrett is no longer an in-ring talent and he can't give himself any main event positions.

Let us know what you think in the comments!
