WWE star Daniel Bryan is banned from SmackDown after losing a dramatic showdown with Roman Reigns on Friday night.

Reigns had challenged Bryan to a match that put his Universal Championship and Bryan’s SmackDown career on the line – but Bryan lost and his time on SmackDown looks very much to be over.

The former “Planet’s Champion” has been vocal in recent weeks about this being his last run as a full-time wrestler.

Elsewhere, It was reported by PWInsider this week that WWE will begin to test live events with crowds this summer.

Following April’s Wrestlemania, WWE moved NXT from Wednesday night to Tuesday night so that it was no longer competing with AEW Dynamite.

NXT airs on USA Network and is also available on the WWE network.
All Elite Wrestling will continue on Wednesdays showcasing their talented roster on TNT. 

Newcomer AEW offers a mix of indie darlings, such asThunder Rosa, wrestling legends, such as “Demo God” Chris Jericho and Jim “JR” Ross, and up-and-coming stars, such as Tay ContiJade Cargill, and Britt Baker. 

Fans of Impact! Wrestling can now watch their favorite stars, including current Impact KNOCKOUTS champion Deonna Purrazzo, on Thursday night on Twitch, and on AXSTV.

    The Hitman even claimed the founder and executive producer of NXT hasn’t had any original ideas throughout his 29-year wrestling career.

    McMahon has run the global juggernaut that is WWE since taking over from his father back in 1982 and remains the company’s chairman.
