Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Jeff Hardy is currently dealing with a bad shoulder injury and he may need to get surgery
-
WWE held a live event in Sacramento on Friday night, but Jeff was unable to wrestle due to his banged up shoulder so Matt wrestled Karl Anderson in a singles match instead
-
It’s unclear exactly when the injury occurred, but Jeff certainly appeared to be clutching his shoulder in pain during the main event of Monday Night Raw this week
-
It's unclear if Jeff will need surgery at this point. However, it’s definitely an option — amongst a few others — and they should know more in the days to come

Rob Van Dam, who last wrestled with WWE in 2014, noted that he is still active in the wrestling ring, but there are no plans to return to WWE at the current moment
-
“I’m looking at 24 matches, all international, booked over the next 12 months,” said Van Dam. “I don’t have any plans to share, but there is always a possibility of a return."
-
“I’ve talked to WWE recently, but it’s about the new video games that are coming out. That was more of a business talk about that, but when the business is right and it’s the right time to go back, that, of course, is then always a possibility.”

Ring of Honor COO Joe Koff spoke to Jack Jorgensen the FanSided Daily DDT blog this week to promote Friday’s ROH Death Before Dishonor PPV and spoke about Sinclair Broadcasting’s support of ROH, their working relationship with New Japan Pro Wrestling, Women of Honor and much more
-
Among the topics discussed was the possibility of WWE SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan becoming a free agent next year and the possibility of him returning to ROH
-
With all the buzz around Daniel Bryan wanting to get back in the ring when his WWE contract expires, Koff says he would personally welcome Bryan Danielson back to ROH
-
“Well I don’t think it’s any secret, and all the previous ROH wrestlers know, that they are always welcome back in Ring of Honor. This is their home, so to speak,” Koff said. “We never chided anybody for leaving for what they thought were greener pastures. And look, a lot of them have succeeded on a far greater platform than we could have provided them at the time"
-
“So if Bryan Danielson would love to come back, I didn’t work with him personally while he was here, but I would personally welcome him back.”

Charlotte appeared on 107.7 The Bone with Baby Huey & Bimbo Jimbo
-
Here are the highlights
-
On writing that Sasha Banks was “angry” that she (Charlotte) won the Divas championship from Nikki Bella and not her:
-
“Not being as popular as Sasha at the time. She’s one of the greatest performers today. She will go down as one of the greatest female wrestlers of all time. I don’t want to say that necessarily that Sasha was mad, but Sasha is that competitive. That’s why she brings out the best in me and I bring out the best in her is because she wants to be the best and I want to be the best. At that time if I was to put myself in Sasha’s shoes: she had just come off Brooklyn against Bayley. One of the greatest matches. She probably in her mind thought “why isn’t the title going to me?” I can’t blame her for that. I just think it was hard for me knowing that I wish people could be more understanding that I needed the title to make me, and she didn’t.”
-
On Bayley having to deal with boos despite being a face:
-
"One thing I know about Bayley is this is what she’s wanted to do her whole life, and just because the audience is disagreeing with her character…or however you want to look at it. It won’t define her down the road, if anything it will make her stronger and her character stronger because she’ll have to evolve.”
-
If she is interested in a woman’s Royal Rumble match:
-
“If we have enough women absolutely. I think that would be great. I think that would be exciting. It’s just a matter of having enough women.”
-
If she would like to be Ronda Rousey’s first opponent in WWE:
-
“Absolutely! For sure, and I think it’s great she was around the Mae Young Classic whether she’s interested in coming to WWE or not. It just creates buzz for the women’s division, and any time there’s more eyes outside of our regular audience that’s put on the women’s division is great.”

Recently on Conversation With The Big Guy, former WWE Superstar Ryback talked about whether he ever associated Colt Cabana with the negative comments CM Punk made on Cabana's podcast as well as his 2012 Hell In A Cell match versus Punk
-
With respect to Ryback's 2012 HIAC match versus Punk, 'The Human Wrecking Ball' did not know anything about the planned finish of HIAC 2012 match till the day of
-
"No, I didn't [know anything about the finish beforehand] and it was a really, really tough thing for me that day because I was in a really tough situation going into that match. Me and Punk had been working live events. They don't let you know anything there, typically. Punk maybe knew, but I was just being introduced to the main event and I found out that day Punk [on] multiple times went to Vince [McMahon]'s office. I was in a position where I wasn't as comfortable as I am now or [during] my final feuds there where you kind of have to build up to that relationship and whatnot. I didn't know what the plan was."
-
In Ryback's estimation, that night should have been the night he won the WWE title
-
"It started that whole process for me where things didn't exactly go my way. I just remember it did not feel right when they first told me what we were doing. I don't know [if the plan was ever for Ryback to go over]. You have no way of knowing. It could have been, but things there change all the time. 100% [that night should have been the night Ryback went over]."

WWE officials are still interested in doing a Horsewomen vs. Horsewomen feud as multiple ideas have been discussed, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter
-
One issue being discussed is making sense of Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch being on SmackDown while Sasha Banks and Bayley are on RAW but that could be solved by having the match on a joint pay-per-view such as the Survivor Series in November. There's also been talk of doing a Flair vs. Ronda Rousey singles match at some point. It was previously believed that Ronda's first singles match would be against Stephanie McMahon

Black says he went on a 15-year journey to get to NXT. In that time he marked his body with every experience he has had. Black says his journey has just begun. He now knows what he has to do. The Velveteen Dream’s music hits. Dream says everything that fades to black will eventually come to the light. Dreams says Black may have spent 15 years walking through the darkness but he is now being blinded by the light that is the Velveteen Dream. Dream says as he looks at Black he just doesn’t see it. Dream asks Black where his scares are. Dream doesn’t see scars. He sees a man who is hurt and in pain. Black’s biggest problem isn’t feelings, it’s fear. Black seems afraid to show emotion. Most importantly, Black is afraid of the light. Black has a heart, it’s just in the wrong place. Dream points at Black. Black spin kicks the mic out of Dream’s hand. Black drops down into a seated position in the ring. Dream steps up to Black and drops to his knees. Dream slivers out of the ring with his eyes locked onto Black. Dream blows Black a kiss. Dream back peddles up the ramp. Dream drops to his knees again and stares at Black

Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish defeated Tyler Bate & Trent Seven. After the match, Drew McIntyre's music hits and he charges the ring. TUE looks like they're ready for a fight, but head for the hills at the first sight of a charge from McIntyre. SAnitY appears from the back curtain. I always love the heels turning around to have fear struck in their eyes. Everyone fighting everywhere as the crowd chants NXT. The melee continues as we go off the air
