News Roundup - 17 April, 2012

Mick Foley posted on his blog concerning Dean Ambrose, saying that he refuses to work with him, after the FCW talent went against Foley's plead to not talk about his family on Twitter. Although Mick Foley talked out of kayfabe here, I still think that this is a work, and that somewhere down the line we'll see Ambrose vs. Foley on WWE television. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Shane Helms blasted the Jericho/Punk feud on Twitter when he said “I like both Punk and Jericho but I could care less about this 'straight edge vs. alcoholic' angle. Just wrestle.” I would like to publicly apologise for posting this on the blog and ever considering it news worthy in the first place.

Austin Aries did an interview with Sports Vibe UK where he discussed numerous things, one of which concerning the current state of Ring of Honor. Here is what he had to say: "I'll be really honest with you, the Ring of Honor today is not anything like the Ring of Honor that the likes of CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and myself came from. Obviously they are still operating under the same name, but the company has changed so much over the years and it's really a shell of it's former self in terms of the vision and thought process. The original Ring of Honor and the Ring of Honor today are two completely different things, I like to call it Smokey Mountain of Honor." It's hard to disagree with Aries here. Since the SBG takeover (or since last June to be more specific) ROH hasn't been the most consistent. Although in saying that, you could argue that ROH in 2010 was better than previous years such as 2008 and 2009. People may say that he's showing bitterness towards ROH, but I also feel that he's just being plain honest. So yeah, take what you want from that. 

Brock Lesnar's new wrestling attire has been leaked all throughout the dirt sheets. The attire follows that same design as his MMA attire and also has some additional sponsors on the short. Of course, this is not something you would usually see from the WWE, but with Brock Lesnar's status in the wrestling world (or even in the sports world) they aren't really going to disagree with him on anything. Also, the gloves seen in the picture is an interesting insight at how he might wrestle his matches in the WWE.
