While Styles’ contract is rumored to be expiring soon, he made it clear that no final decision has been made regarding his future in wrestling.

Based on that and the hernia report, the former WWE Champion took issue with the way reporting is done nowadays:

— The Undertaker is one of the most revered Superstars to ever step in a WWE ring, but these five competitors were bold and foolish enough to insult “The Deadman.”

— -The late Sherri Martel was born on this day in 1958. WWE sent out this post on Instagram asking everyone to remember Martel on her birthday.

Martel — real name Sherri Russell — died on June 15, 2007, at her mother’s residence in McCalla, Alabama, near Birmingham. She was 49 years old. On September 11, 2007, homicide investigators in Tuscaloosa, Alabama released the toxicology report stating that she died of an overdose with multiple drugs in her system, including high amounts of oxycodone. She was cremated after her death.
