    Update for 10/24/18
    Welcome to the first edition of these 'Daily News Roundups'. What is this? It's simple really. A roundup of major news around the wrestling world, all resumed here for you. If there are news articles that are discussed in a different part of this forum, they will be linked here for you to follow and comment on. We'll also round out other content in our forums currently, as well as note any television shows coming up.

    This thread is to be handled by your benevolent WZF Admin, so while I'd welcome kind words, corrections and the like, I kindly ask that any updates of the sort be done by me. With that in mind, lets start this!!

    *** The rumors regarding Daniel Bryan and John Cena's participation at WWE's controversial 'Crown Jewel' have seemingly been debunked after Raw and Smackdown not only continued to promote the World Cup tournament and AJ Styles/Daniel Bryan match, but doubled down on it's promotion on Smackdown. Originally the story was broken by Robbie Fox of Barstool Sports with the likes of John Pollock of POST Wrestling as well as Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer indicating there is unease in the locker room but there are no real answers about Bryan, Cena or anyone actually bowing out of the event. Raw and Smackdown have seemingly gone ahead with the idea that all their promoted stars (minus obviously Roman Reigns) will do the 'Crown Jewel' event which is still slated to take place in Saudi Arabia.

    *** The Undertaker is scheduled for 'Rise Of The Taker'. A series of sitdown Q&A shows produced by Inside The Rope's Kenny McIntosh to take place through the UK on 4/30 in London, 5/1 in Glasgow & 5/2 in Manchester. These dates happen to match up quite well with WWE's annual post-Wrestlemania European tour.

    *** 205 Live will have it's 100th episode tonight.
