Jim Ross detailed his talks with AXS TV to potentially replace Mauro Ranallo as lead announcer for the New Japan series in his latest blog at jrsbarbq.com.
– Ross said his side has been talking with AXS TV “over the last couple of months” and there is “mutual interest” in working together, but “we have yet to finalize our agreement.”
– The update on Saturday is that “lawyers are reviewing the revised points on the contract” following the latest discussions on specifics of the arrangement.
– Ross summarized his current standing with AXS TV: “If we can all get on the same page, of which I am optimistic that we can, then we can get every thing signed and move forward to another exciting chapter of my broadcasting career.”

WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan was on a media tour for the company. When asked about his return to WWE, Bryan said this:
“I think it could be the end of my career in WWE, but I don’t think it will be the end of my career.”
Bryan has been cleared by his own independent doctor, but WWE is being much more strict and not allowing Daniel return to active competition. Ben Henderson is a UFC fighter who says that Daniel Bryan has been training in MMA and is actually quite good.
“He was out with some injuries in WWE,” Henderson told Sporting News. “He came to our gym and moved up to blue belt in jiu-jitsu under my coach John Crouch. Every time I go in there, he’s working his butt off. I heard he was pretty strong and actually surprised me with how technical he is. A lot of guys have a hard time learning all those techniques. I heard he was really great at being able to use his technique and not relying on his strength. He’s smooth and does jiu-jitsu really well.”
We hope to see Daniel Bryan back sooner rather than later.
