WWE Warrior Award Winner Announced

Published

on

WWE has announced another member of the 2018 WWE Hall Of Fame Class. Jarrius “JJ” Robertson will be receiving the Warrior Award at the event.

WWE issued the following on Monday morning:

WWE announced today that 15-year-old Jarrius “JJ” Robertson, double liver transplant survivor and longtime WWE fan, has been named the recipient of the fourth annual Warrior Award. Named after WWE Hall of Famer Ultimate Warrior, The Warrior Award is presented to an individual who has exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of Ultimate Warrior.

The award will be presented to Robertson by Dana Warrior, widow of Ultimate Warrior, at the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which will stream live on WWE Network at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, April 6, from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. USA Network will broadcast a special presentation of the ceremony on Saturday, April 7, at 10 ET/10 PT and on Monday, April 9, at 11 ET/11 PT, immediately following Raw. 

While battling biliary atresia, a rare chronic liver disease, Jarrius has undergone dozens of surgeries and has had two liver transplants in his short life. Through these trials and tribulations, Jarrius has not let this disease define who he is. His charismatic, lively and positive attitude throughout his journey has captured the attention of athletes, celebrities and people around the world. Living by the motto “It takes lives to save lives,” Jarrius strives to encourage everyone to become an organ donor.

“I can’t believe I have been chosen to be the 2018 Warrior Award recipient,” said Robertson. “Being honored by WWE means the world to me. I feel very blessed.”

“Jarrius has shown immeasurable amounts of courage, strength and positivity during the hardest of times. His infectious smile and personality light up any room, with no one the wiser of the pain he could have been enduring at any given moment,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “His determination to help others fight their toughest battles and his work to bring awareness to organ donation make him a true Warrior and the perfect recipient of this year’s award in his hometown of New Orleans.”

“It is a privilege to present Jarrius with this year’s Warrior Award at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony,” said Dana Warrior. “He lives every day with the Warrior spirit and is an inspiration to people of all ages.”

Robertson has received honors from the New Orleans Saints and the NBA and was the recipient of the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the 2017 ESPYS. Last year, Stephanie McMahon presented Robertson with a WWE Hero award for his courage, perseverance and dedication to helping others”

My Thoughts:

Congratulations to the young kid who has gone through so much in his short life. This is what separates WWE from so many other companies.  Kudos to WWE.

Ja’ Von’s Weekly Impact Wrestling YouTube Report (6/23/18)

Published

on

This week’s episode of Impact featured a tag team main event between oVe and Pentagon Jr. & Fantasma. We also saw new tag team champions crowned in LAX.

We saw a decline in viewership this week as Impact went up against the NBA Draft which you can read about here. But how did they do in terms of views on YouTube?

Here is the YouTube breakdown (numbers collected at 2:30PM EST):

  1. Sami Callihan and oVe Rip Open Pentagon Jr’s Mask: 118K views
  2. KM Isn’t Facing Fallah Bahh, He’s Facing SCOTT STEINER: 75K views
  3. Konan Returns to Confront King: 59K views
  4. KM vs Scott Steiner: 52K views
  5. Eddie Edwards Suffers a Psychotic Break Over Tommy Dreamer: 45K views
  6. Madison Rayne vs Taya Valykire: 43K views
  7. Z & E vs LAX: World Tag Team Championship: 42K views

After of the conclusion from the fight in the woods it seemed like the blood feud between Sami Callihan and Eddie Edwards was going to continue. Eddie blames Dreamer for allowing Callihan to escape.

Over the past few weeks it seems that oVe have found new targets in the form of former world champion Pentagon Jr. & Fantasma. This all began last week when Jake Christ faced off against Fantasma. This week Pentagon & Fantasma defeated oVe which lead to a post match brawl and Sami Callihan trying to rip the mask off. When looking at the numbers fans seem to like where this feud is going. I predict that the big pay off will either happen in the weeks to come or at Slammiversary.

When take a look at KM’s run so far with Impact you wouldn’t expect him to be sitting in the number two and four spots for this week’s report. Right now KM is being use in a comedy act with Fallah Bahh the only reason he is in the numbwr two and four spots is due to the bigger of Scott Steiner. Yes, I know shockingly Stiener is still somewhat of a draw in 2018.
