In the last year, WWE has done without dozens and dozens of athletes, with releases that have been many, as they had been last year, when the world pandemic exploded overnight, blocking in fact all the shows of the federation and closing the doors to fans of the WWE Universe, who returned only in July of this year.
Among the many names released this year, great characters from the past and present of the WWE rings have also emerged, such as Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana or Bo Dallas. Just the former NXT Champion, appeared to be absent from WWE televisions for several months, over a year, with the latter's inactivity that had forced WWE to include him in the list of released, having no plans for him in the long run.
Apparently, Dallas would now have found his way out of the world of wrestling, with cooking, his great passion, which would become his number one project, with his Youtube channel that will now be home to his videos- favorite recipes (and more).
In the last few hours, the first video on the channel of the former NXT Champion would be released, with a recipe based on chicken, which according to the former wrestler would be the best we will ever eat in our life. In the description of the dish, we find the following phrases: "In this video, I teach you how to make the best damn cast iron chicken thighs you've ever eaten in your life!
Step by step, I'll walk you through the recipe. The first of many others, here on my Youtube channel. As well as many of my other passions. Which includes, but is not limited to wrestling, cooking, conspiracies and story-telling.
Be sure to sign up today!" Attached, we also show you the video of the master chef, the now ex Bo Dallas, who has returned to his real name, abandoning that of art after his release from WWE.
Former WWE Ryan Sakoda dies
Once again, a young wrestler dies in the prime of life, of unknown causes.
Through the pages of the well-known overseas site, PW Insider, we learn of the untimely death of Ryan Sakoda, a Japanese wrestler, naturalized American, who at one point in his career had also worked in WWE, alongside the more famous Tajiri and by Akio, who later became Jimmy Wang Yang in the McMahon rings.
At the moment the causes of death are not yet known, although the athlete died very young, at the age of only 48. The news has already been around the world and would have been confirmed by multiple authoritative sources within the web wrestling, a sign that what we are reporting, unfortunately, is not fake news.
Ryan Sakoda's parable was very similar to that of many other former WWE wrestlers, with the young athlete who had started from Japan, with a good school of puroresu, to then land in America, where it was everyone's dream, to succeed to enter the WWE rings, which Ryan was able to do.
In a brief juncture of his career, Ryan had also managed to become part of one of the most interesting storylines of Friday Night Smackdown, alongside the lightweight champion, Tajiri.
Before joining WWE, the athlete had also played in the UPW and ZERO-ONE rings, where he had cut his teeth with the American style of wrestling. After being fired from WWE in the early 2000s, the athlete also continued to work in Wrestling Society X, for some time, only to move to other independent federations, until his death.
Note, as Sakoda was one of the wrestlers who denounced the WWE for the continuous concussions suffered in the company's rings, with the athlete of Japanese origin who was part of the class action formed against the McMahons in recent years and led by Kostantine Kyros.
From the WorldWrestling editorial staff, our deepest condolences go to Ryan's family and loved ones for his untimely death.
