Scott Fishman of ChannelGuideMagBlog.com passed along a new interview with former WWE Diva Barbie "Kelly Kelly" Blank promoting the season finale of her E! reality show, "WAGS". During the interview, Blank talked about WWE not supporting her on the reality show, which had aired prior to "Total Divas" on E! during their fourth season.
"You know WWE hasn't been very supportive, so that's kind of upsetting. I've gave them so many years. We're on the same network. We are right after 'Total Divas.' They just haven't given any support whatsoever. They support when guys do other things outside of the business like The Rock and Steve Austin. They support them fully. For me, it's like really? We didn't have a falling out. I left on good terms. Now that I'm doing this on my own, and I'm on the same network, you could be more supportive. So that has been upsetting, but people I used to work with and a lot of the wrestlers watch it. So that's great to have their support. Maryse came on this season, so that was cool. It has been good."

IGN.com has a new interview with WWE star Daniel Bryan promoting the upcoming WWE 2K16 video game and his current status with WWE.
On his current status with WWE and when he might be returning to the ring:
"So, we don't know, I had a concussion in April, and obviously they're very hyper-sensitive about concussion stuff right now. One neurologist who specializes in concussions - who was the neurologist for the Super Bowl last year - cleared me with no limitations. All my testing came back excellent. But the WWE's medical doctor is skeptical, because of my history of concussions and that sort of thing. So they will not clear me. So now, we have two doctors: one saying no, one saying yes. They're going to send me to a third doctor at some point in the near future and that doctor will decide my fate."
"John Cena and I actually had this discussion. 'If something were to happen to you and the WWE, would you go back to doing the indies?' Absolutely! I've gotten this sudden fascination with the lore of lucha."
"The WWE doctor Joe Maroon [is] amazing and highly respected in the concussion field, and if they send me to a third neurologist who's also highly respected in the concussion field and they say literally no...well, then is it really smart to go against two doctors? I get all fired up...and then I'm like, maybe that's not the best thing for me and my family going forward."
