Gigi Dolin’s Injury Update
Gigi Dolin recent appearance on WWE NXT ended in a painful injury inflicted by her teammate Jacy Jayne, signaling the end of their team, Toxic Attraction. Gigi Dolin later posted a photo on social media showing the extent of her injury.
However, according to Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Live, the injury is not genuine. Although the bruise appeared worse than it actually was, Dolin will be taking a few weeks off from WWE programming to play out a “career-ending injury” storyline.
“Gigi Dolin is fine. She apparently is fine. She got thrown into a door that didn’t open and then she got her face smashed in between a foot and a door that didn’t open. She’s tough and she’s done a lot of matches and I guess it looked worse than it was… They’re doing an injury angle so she’s not going to be on TV for a few weeks to sell what looked like practically, a career-ending injury.” [H/T: Cultaholic]
Former WWE Star Explains Why He Declined Offer To Appear At Royal Rumble
The Royal Rumble is famous for its unexpected surprise entrants. In 2014, Vince McMahon offered a spot at the event to wrestler Matt Morgan, but he declined.
Morgan, now 46 years old, rose to prominence as “The Blueprint” in IMPACT Wrestling. He also had a brief stint in WWE from 2005 to 2007, during which he teamed up with stars such as Brock Lesnar and The Big Show.
In a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet on Insight, Matt Morgan shared his reasons for declining McMahon’s offer to return to WWE for the Royal Rumble in 2014.
“I would have had that chance when I was supposed to go back and re-debut with them [in] 2014, January 2014. The Royal Rumble. I was going to be The Blueprint finally on WWE TV, not TNA. But my son Jackson was born January 7. And that was something that my wife and I had been praying on for 12 straight years, we went through eight rounds of IVF, none of them worked. And by the grace of God, she naturally got pregnant, the biggest thing for me in my life ever, ever!” Morgan added: “But let’s say it never happened. I was on track to be re-debuting for Royal Rumble 2014 that January. And so I called them up. I told them what happened.” (H/T: Christ Van Vliet)
