The Wrestling Observer is reporting that eventhough Bully Ray may be on his way out of TNA, there is no interest on WWE’s behalf into signing him.

WWE didn’t show interest in him for a few years, and didn’t try to sign Devon when he was recently available. In addition to this, his age is a factor, and he has some detractors in WWE, most notably Randy Orton.

He could be helpful in the WWE developmental program as a trainer or agent, but WWE looks to have those positions all filled, in addition to a hiring freeze due to budget cuts.

Summerslam 2015 Venue

There was talk of MetLife Stadium, the host of Wrestlemania 29, being the site of next year’s Summerslam pay-per-view, but two other places are being looked at.

Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and the Izod Center in East Rutherford are being considered, and Madison Square Garden is being ruled out of hosting the show. The reason being given is that it’s probably too expensive to run such a major show at MSG compared to other venues in the same area.
