    The Grapevine (7/21/21): Reaction To Karrion Kross's Debut, Daniel Bryan Update, Bray Wyatt Update, Plans For Toni Storm

    Karrion Kross on WWE RAW


    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    NXT reactions to Karrion Kross's RAW loss

    Many NXT talents and staff were apparently frustrated with how Karrion Kross was booked to lose his RAW debut against Jeff Hardy. Those people feel that Kross's booking was Vince McMahon sending a message to the brand about how he views NXT as a whole. Kross, however, was reportedly in "good spirits" backstage after the match.

    We say: If we were Kross, we'd have no choice but to be in good spirits, as it's our ass on the line. But it's pretty clear that Vince McMahon and his cronies don't really care that much about Triple H's passion project, and at this point people should stop expecting otherwise. Let's just be glad that the show is even on right now, because Vince can pull the plug on it anytime he wants (if it weren't such a steady and stable source of new talent). If he loses any good will because of this, that's on him.

    Daniel Bryan update

    Daniel Bryan is no longer being discussed in WWE. He is currently not figuring in any plans for the company, and some believe that this is a sign that he is not coming back and is eventually headed to All Elite Wrestling or any other company. However, there is no such confirmation that he is set to sign with another company yet. (Source: PWInsider)

    We say: It's basically a non-update, just throwing in the fact that there are people who believe that he's not coming back to WWE. We'd say that we should just allow ourselves to be surprised at this point.

    Bray Wyatt update

    There is still no timetable for Bray Wyatt's return to WWE TV. This is apparently not a creative issue, as there is apparently a specific reason he is being sidelined, which no one is talking about. (Source: PWInsider)

    We say: At this point, we're just hoping he's okay.

    Plans for Toni Storm

    Toni Storm is set to debut on this Friday's SmackDown episode as a babyface. She joins Shotzi and Tegan Nox as a few of the recent call-ups from NXT. (Source: PWInsider)

    We say: Looking forward to a good push for Toni Storm on the blue brand.
