Wrestling Fix: Dolph Ziggler retiring? Daniel Bryan dealing with a career-threatening concussion and more links

Look who showed up on TNA Impact Wrestling last night. Welcome back, Karen Jarrett.

Dolph Ziggler’s comedy set list should get wrestling fans talking. Is Ziggler just fueling the rumors? His contract is up in the next few months, and the Wrestling Observer (subscription required) reports that there’s interest from New Japan, Lucha Underground and TNA. However, that’s risky given the uncertain futures of the latter two.


Daniel Bryan is dealing with a concussion and it is “career threatening.” That’s the word from Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at Jeff and Karen Jarrett’s return to TNA.
