JBL Speaks on the Leaving WWE Rumors, WWE Announcer Bleeds, More

– WWE has announced that the 2010 Royal Rumble will take place on January 24th at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA.

– WWE announcer Josh Mathews had a nose bleed as RAW went on the air last night. While doing his welcome introduction with Matt Striker, he removed the tissue from his nose and blood began to gush out. The cameras quickly cut away.

– John Bradshaw Layfield posted a new blog on the WWE Universe sit yesterday addressing rumors of him and WWE being on bad terms. Here’s part of the blog:

My first Monday off in about 18 years, at least off at night and not due to injury. Really excited about just being a fan again. Looking forward to watching the draft tonight and seeing what is going to happen. There is always a surprise or two in these things, so should be a fun night of WWE viewing for me.

I heard rumors that I left on bad terms with the WWE, could not be further from the truth. In fact, I don’t think I could have left on better terms. My wife not being at Mania had something to do with the fact that she is busy with her company, and in case you hadn’t noticed a huge financial meltdown in the world.

My time was awesome, and I said you can never say never. But I am on to the next chapter in my life, I will always be a WWE supporter no matter where I am.
