Former WWE talent Simon Dean was the latest guest on the Pancakes and Powerslams Show. During the episode, Dean discussed the dreaded "December to Dismember" pay-per-view, WWE's version of ECW, the Rip Rogers "dive" saga and more. He also discussed why AJ Styles declined signing with WWE in the past.
"Bob Ryder and Jeff Jarrett had come up to me, and they told me that they were launching this new company called TNA. I told them that I had just signed with WWE, and I want to give it a shot. They wanted me to come to TNA, and they wanted to build the company around AJ. So, it's not that AJ never wanted to go to the WWE, it was just that the offer was never right for AJ to come to WWE."
