Blog of Doom Daily Update: 01.18.17

There, did I say it right?  Grumble… anyway, all rumors blatantly stolen from my other site, CagesideSeats.com.  Presumably they did their homework.

  • While his in-ring future is up in the air, Kurt Angle is expected to get involved in on-screen stories for WWE in one way or another moving forward.
  • Michael Cole is looking to step away from an on-screen role and get more involved in production and training the next generation of announcers, according to PWInsider.
  • Despite his presence on most episodes of Raw over the next several months, Brock Lesnar will not wrestle at Fastlane match, and the only telvised bout WWE is currently planning for him is his WrestleMania rematch with Goldberg.
  • Hideo Itami is hinting that he’s ready to return to action following the neck injury he suffered at a house show last year.
  • Former Ring of Honor tag champs War Machine, the hoss team of Hanson and Raymond Rowe, are believed to be WWE bound.

Also, for non-wrestling sports news: Baseball will announce the Class of 2017 Hall of Fame today at 6PM USET.
