I don’t really do many stories on signings or rumors when it pertains to wrestling as nothing really seems to be true. But as of last night The American Dragon Bryan Danielson has officially signed with the WWE (source ROH wrestling. Many of you may not know of The American Dragon, but for the past 6+ years he has been wowing crowds all over the world which included a 15 month long title reign as the Ring Of Honor world champion. Danielson is by far one of the best mat based wrestlers that I have seen in quite a long time, but can still work a strong Japanese style as well. Think of him as a younger Dean Malenko if you will. He will be finishing up his ROH dates next month so if you are in Philly or New York, definitely check him out. No word on when he will begin his WWE work, but hopefully he’ll be treated more like CM Punk and less like Colt Cobana.
Finally, this Tuesday will see the release of The Rise and Fall of WCW, WWE’s new DVD chronicalling the fall of the company they helped put out of business. The previous Rise and Fall of ECW DVD was one of the best put out by the WWE and I have heard nothing but good things about the WCW one as well.
