Orton is one of those guys who is just solid all around. You'll probably never get a show-stealing 5-star classic match out of him. But you likely won't ever get a total shit match out of him either. He's safe and sometimes boring, but everything he does in the ring, he does extremely well. He knows his limits.

He has good timing. Other than that, nothing special at all other than a look. Put his skillset in anyone who doesn't look like him and you would see a midcarder at best.

"I assume that if I don’t wrestle by WrestleMania, I probably won’t be wrestling with WWE at all."

If I get to see DBry's return match in person, I'll be pretty F'n stoked

So there has been a weird upturn in the odds of Bryan being in the Rumble. Could be just fan sleculation.

Yeah I saw that. I'm not buying it, but holy shit will I ever mark out if he does.

I'm selfishly hopeful for a Wrestlemania return since I'll be there.

It's probably just a couple marks with deep pockets. A rumble return doesn't even make sense.

Yeah, unless he was going to win, what's the point? Bring Bryan in as a Rumble surprise and watch the crowd go insane.....only to eliminate him soon after? Man, if you thought the crowd booed the 2014 Rumble finish....

It's possible they agreed to a return after he was somehow passed during a new evaluation by WWE doctors. Not likely but if Angle can compete in the ring...

Generally the only way the odds get this skewed is if someone on the inside has placed a bet or tipped someone off. So...we shall see.

If DBry gets to return in the rumble, he better damn well be in the final 2 and get tossed out by Roman Reigns to make Roman look strong


HOOOAAAAAH

With the shit going on around Roman right now, he'll probably be low key for a bit.

It would be smart to keep him on the DL you know... because of the implication.

On one hand, I would be so pissed.

On the other hand, I would laugh so fucking hard at the sheer audacity of it.

WWE seems pretty damn confident with the statement they released...but then again they can always poke holes in it later on if evidence comes out against him.

I know it makes me a dick because this is a real human being with a real career and money at stake......but part of me kinda hopes it turns out to be true. Reigns getting suspended for 60 days would probably put an end to the inevitable Lesnar/Roman Wrestlemania match that I desperately don't want to see.

Lesnar was caught using steroids a couple of years ago. Didn't seem to slow them down on him one bit.

Bleh. Read that incorrectly.

They addressed that at the time. Lesnar's contract is different and he's not subject to their Wellness Policy because he's part-time.

Roman is just like everyone else when it comes to that. He's a full-time contracted employee and has already failed 1 drug test before. This, especially as public as it is and with how much mainstream attention it's gotten, would absolutely force their hand. They'd have to suspend him. 2nd strike. 60 days.

But right now, it's just the word of one guy in jail. If they manage to dig up a paper trail and prove it, Roman's fucked.

Please let that be true then. I know it's the plan but I'm really not ready to see Lesnar do the job to Roman this year.

Couple of possible loopholes: Roman gets a strike removed after his inevitable 2nd Violation OR WWE can claim he came forward first with a substance problem which results in no strikes. So if Roman has to take a test but goes to management and says "I'm addicted to Viagra and steroids" then he could get a free pass if he "seeks treatment.

D. REDEMPTION PROGRAM

A WWE talent who has “two” violations under the Policy may, subject to Medical Director approval, enter the Redemption Program. The Redemption Program is an eighteen (18) month process that requires the following:

An initial assessment conducted by the Medical Director (or, as the case may be, an addiction specialist recommended by the Medical Director) who will analyze the addiction related issues and health related concerns then being experienced by the WWE Talent, develop proposed treatments, therapies and/or support programs that may assist the WWE Talent in managing these issues/concerns and determine initial entry date for the WWE Talent into the Redemption Program;
Compliance with the assessment recommendations made by the Medical Director (or, as the case may be, an addiction specialist recommended by the Medical Director) for the duration of the eighteen (18) month program;
Mandatory unannounced follow-up testing as set forth in Section 8© (1) of the Policy; and
No violations under the Policy for eighteen (18) consecutive months after initial entry into the Redemption Program.
Upon successful completion of the Redemption Program, the WWE Talent shall request the PA, with the approval of the Medical Director, to delete one (1) of the two (2) violations of record for such WWE Talent. In the event the PA determines in favor of the request, the violation record for such WWE Talent will then be amended to reflect the reduction of a violation leaving the WWE Talent with only one (1) violation under the Policy.

16. SELF-REPORTING
Pain medications, and other substances prohibited by this Policy, may be abused at times and can become addictive. A WWE Talent who believes he/she may have a problem with substance abuse is encouraged to self-report and request assistance. No penalties are imposed on WWE Talent for voluntarily acknowledging a problem to the Medical Director prior to a drug test being performed herein and WWE will assist in securing rehabilitation services in such situations. The rehabilitation process can be engaged by a WWE Talent notifying the Medical Director, the PA, WWE Ringside Physicians or the WWE Wellness Coordinator that he/she has a problem and needs assistance.

So, the best source for wrestling news, oddschecker.com had this to say

Quote:Oddschecker.com spokesperson George Elek commented on the situation with the following statement:

We’ve seen a lot of movement in Royal Rumble market with odds changing on some surprise movers and shakers within the WWE roster.

Fan favourite Daniel Bryan has seen a plethora of attention, despite apparently not being medically clear to compete.

There may be something in this story, however, with our sources claiming that the storyline between Bryan and Shane O Mac coming to fruition and resulting in a fairy-tale return win, for the constantly over superstar."


Speculation or smart money coming in?
