- Following Sunday’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view, there has been talk of shifting Daniel Bryan out of the World Title picture and having Sheamus feud with returning stars Alberto Del Rio and Christian.
– WWE has softened its position on Daniel Bryan’s “YES!” chants and are now embracing them, as evidenced by Bryan’s finishing move being renamed, the “Yes! Lock.” WWE is expecting a very rowdy, pro-Bryan Crowd this Sunday night, with Chicago being known as a city full of “smart” fans who support Bryan.
– Antonio Cesaro (Claudio Castagnoli) made his debut on WWE TV last week in a backstage segment with Aksana, Teddy Long and John Laurinaitis. He will make his in-ring debut this Friday on SmackDown in a “tryout match” against Tyson Kidd, arranged by Laurinaitis.
Without spoiling the result of his match with Tyson Kidd, we can confirm that the finishing move Cesaro will use in WWE is called a Gotch Style Neutralizer (also known as a Pancake Cradle Piledriver … mmmmm, pancakes). The move starts as a Gotch-style piledriver but then he falls forward into face slam, similar to Triple H’s Pedigree.
