Dave Meltzer reported on Yahoo Sports that WWE officials have denied that Strikeforce women’s MMA champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos is in negotiations to come in. Cyborg currently has a champion’s clause in her Strikeforce contract which would prevent her from jumping until she loses. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said this weekend he was aware of the rumors but didn’t know if they were serious or just something being said to leverage contract negotiations as Strikeforce and Cyborg are currently working on her new contract.
It has been discussed to have Mason Ryan in CM Punk’s corner at WrestleMania 27 in the match against Randy Orton. Orton will have to face David Otunga and Mason Ryan on RAW to determine if they can be in Punk’s corner at WrestleMania or not. Punk is expected to have just one Nexus member in his corner at WrestleMania.
