WOL: Weekend wrap-up, Daniel Bryan, New Japan Cup, more


Wrestling Observer Live with Mike Sempervive is back today talking all of the fallout from a busy weekend on the canvassed mat. We talk the latest addition to the Daniel Bryan Speculation Machine, stemming from an interview in Abu Dhabi that once again leads to speculation about a possible return.

Plus, Brock Lesnar’s reaction at MSG, ROMAN, AJ Styles, the New Japan Cup semifinals - including words from ZSJ, plus your calls, tweets, and more. A fun show as always, so check it out~!

Mike also brings up a recent Daniel Bryan interview where he continues to say that he is not cleared by WWE, but feel like he’s closer to getting cleared.  Calls were taken on Gillberg vs. James Ellsworth not happening due to a lack of a doctor, Roman turning heel, sponsors being upset about Roman Reigns being cleared and more.

More calls after the break, this time on WWE trying to dictate who to cheer and and who to boo, Roman Reigns,  Mike also brings up AJ Styles’ potential injury as he did not wrestle on the MSG show as advertised.

Zack Sabre Jr. and Hiroshi Tanahashi are squaring off in the New Japan Cup finals. Mike discusses how we got there, and where they go from here. Calls are taken on the Ultimate Deletion, Kurt Angle, Mickie James and the other women on Raw and more, if the Reigns suspension was a cover for potential fallout from the John Bravo video.

Mike finishes the show with a prediction of what will go down for Ultimate Deletion.
