There is a chance now that Neville may be returning to WWE in April. With Triple H in creative control of 205 Live and if you think about it, the new Raw GM being the former Rockstar Spud, Drake Maverick, do not be surprised if we see the Return of the "King".

Jeff Hardy may possibly be back in time for WrestleMania and team up with his brother "Woken" Matt Hardy to challenge The Bar for the Raw Tag Team Titles. He recently had another exam on his surgically repair rotator cuff and shoulder labrum  and is already back in training.

Adam Cole will likely replace Bobby Fish as Kyle O'Reilly's partner in the NXT Tag titles match at WWE NXT Takeover after Fish injured his knee. Rey Mysterio was officially diagnosed with a grade one partially torn left biceps. It is unknown how much time he will miss.

Katsuyori Shibata gave a statement about running the LA dojo.

Quote

“With rehab and training, I’ve been sensing it’s time to move past the struggle of finding what I am capable of doing. These days, I’ve had a burning desire to take on a new challenge… What can I do in my current state? I thought a change of pace was needed, and the next thing I knew, I found myself in Los Angeles.

By some twist of fate, my thoughts happened around the time the new NJPW dojo was being set up in LA. While getting the dojo ready, I had the chance to assemble the ring with some of the young wrestlers and train with them, and I found myself doing wrestling moves I haven’t been able to do before.

These days have been full of discovery, and as I teach them things, I am learning, too. Los Angeles’ weather is great, and it would be difficult to find an environment with better conditions. As I continue with my rehabilitation and training, I have a desire to pass down the fundamentals, the know-how and techniques and the philosophy that I have built up through my own experience in pro-wrestling to the younger generation here in Los Angeles.

This is the best thing “I can do” right now, and I believe it will benefit the young wrestlers of the next generation and the wrestling world as a whole.

The good, classic Japanese pro-wrestling is starting to disappear from the current wrestling world. But we must never lose that fighting attitude and spirit of traditional Japanese pro-wrestling. I have accepted the mission to open the gates and transcend the cultural differences to pass down our knowledge to the younger generation.

As the NJPW dojo opens in Los Angeles mid-March, I wanted to share my thoughts as I announce that I, Katsuyori Shibata, will lead the LA dojo as the head coach.

That’s all I got to say!

Scorpio Sky, currently in ROH, was also hired on as a dojo coach.

Rookie Katsuya Kitamura missed the 46th Anniversary show and will not be on the New Japan Cup tour as he sustained a concussion. Hikuleo, who is out with a knee injury, will be replaced by Tanga Roa on the tour.

No problem.

WWE released Abbey Laith, Sage Beckett and Gu Guangming (ring name Ming) from NXT. It appears Sage will be moving on to other things than wrestling. Guangming was signed two years ago when WWE held tryouts in China for the first time.

Japanese pro wrestler Kotoka, who was in Dragon Gate his whole career, retired at the March 6th show due to injuries. He is 28.

ROH 16th Anniversary Results

Sumie Sakai pinned Hana Kimura in the WOH champion tournament.

Tenille Dashwood (Emma) advanced over Brandi Rhodes as well.

Hiromu Takahashi defeated Flip Gordon.

Marty Scurll bested Punishment Martinez.

Kenny King retained the ROH TV title against Silas Young. He was then challenged by Austin Aries, which made people to believe ROH and Impact have a working relationship of some type.

SoCal Uncensored (Scorpio Sky, Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian) dethroned the Hung Bucks (Hangman Page & the Young Bucks) for the ROH Trios titles. Daniels is now the first wrestler to complete the grand slam in ROH (TV, Tag, Trios and World Championship titles).

Cody Rhodes beat Matt Taven and got his Ring of Honor back. He was then attacked by the Bullet Club mascot Bury the Drug Free Bear who turned out to be Kenny Omega.

The Briscoes captured the ROH Tag titles for a record ninth time against the Motor City Machine Guns

Dalton Castle retained the ROH World Championship against Jay Lethal. He was then challenged by Marty Scurll.

  • Randy Orton becomes the new United States Champion after defeating Bobby Roode.
  • Natalya and Carmella defeated Naomi and Becky Lynch

  • AJ Styles retains the WWE Heavyweight Championship after defeating Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, and John Cena in a Six-Pack Challenge match. The dream match between Styles and Nakamura at Wrestlemania is still on!!!

Jeff Hardy was arrested over the weekend for Driving While Impaired in Concord, NC. WWE issued a statement saying Hardy was responsible for his own actions and they are awaiting word from local law enforcement.

Kazuchika Okada is now the longest running champion in NJPW History. On Friday, he hit 629 days as IWGP heavyweight Champion, breaking the record held by Jushin Thunder Liger, who hold the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship for 628 days.

Matt Hardy is more excited now that Jeremy Borash has joined WWE. Borash helped produce Hardy's Broken Universe gimmick during their time on Impact:

“Personally I am very glad that Jeremy Borash is here in WWE…He’s got a great mind; a very creative person, a good friend of mine and he just deserves to work here. Coming to the WWE often validates your career in the business and he was kind of the glue that was keeping TNA together in many, many ways over the years. The fact that he’s here and actually hired by Triple H, and his role is to be an important part of NXT, I am very happy he’s got the opportunity”
