Lars Sullivan WWE Status Update
As noted before, Lars Sullivan’s main roster debut has been put on indefinite hold due to Sullivan recently suffering from anxiety-related issues.
In an update to Sullivan’s current WWE status, Dave Meltzer reported in a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE wanted Sullivan to appear at last week’s episode of RAW, but that didn’t happen. It is still currently not known when Sullivan will make his main roster debut.
Goldust Comments on All Elite Wrestling
Sports Illustrated held a recent interview with Goldust and one of the topics discussed included his thoughts on All Elite Wrestling and his brother’s involvement with the company.
“Me and Cody talk a lot, and I was on a movie set for a horror film that I’m doing, and we were texting about that AEW rally in Jacksonville. The pyro alone was spectacular. They’re doing it really professionally, from the heads of the company to their big talent to the newer stars. I’m very curious to see what Cody and the Young Bucks can do with All Elite Wrestling. I hope this really takes storm and becomes something formidable. You need places to go and work, competition is great and it is the best thing that can happen for WWE.”
