In an update to our earlier story on former NWA Champion "Scrap Iron" Adam Pearce, PWInsider is reporting that he will likely be appearing at the WWE Performance Center this week as a special guest trainer. While it is possible he could be given a try-out, at 35-years-old it isn't likely WWE would be interested in taking him on as a potential WWE or NXT Superstar.
2014 Royal Rumble Poster
The official promotional poster for the 2014 Royal Rumble pay-per-view (seen to the right) has been released, and features current World Heavyweight Champion John Cena, surrounded by Daniel Bryan, CM Punk and a whole crew of WWE Superstars. In an interesting note, PPV provider InDemand released a description for the event:
"Don't miss John Cena, C.M. Punk, The Shield, and all your favorite WWE Superstars as they compete for the right to face the WWE or World Heavyweight Champion in the ultimate battle at WWE Royal Rumble, Sunday, January 26."
While this is probably just dated, as WWE likely doesn't release all its plans ahead of time for InDemand, Randy Orton and John Cena are scheduled to unify the WWE and World Heavyweight Championship at this month's TLC pay-per-view. There has also been talk of WWE running some sort of angle where Cena and Orton pull down each other's titles during their TLC match, which would keep the titles separate and void the point of a unification match.
