DJZ

You are talking about Stars of the X-Division, men who defy gravity with their incredible offensive weapons. To see DJZ return on this stage will be awesome! Then you have Andrew Everett who has been called the “Sky-Walker” of IMPACT Wrestling and Dezmond Xavier who has more jaw dropping moves than we have ever witnessed all on the same team! What three athletes will Lucha Underground bring? How about this team…

Drago, a man who has competed in IMPACT Wrestling in the past, with his serpent like tongue and moves like the Dragon Twist or the Dragon’s Tail and you know Drago will bring in on this grand stage. Drago is a former AAA World Tag Team Champion.

Drago’s former tag team partner? The second participant for Lucha Underground in this thrilling 6 Man Tag Team Match… Aero Star! Aero Star has also held Championship gold in Lucha Underground, competing alongside Drago and Fenix, they captured the Lucha Underground Trios Championship. Aero Star is known for his high flying skills with moves like Deja Vu or the La Dormilona. These are two incredible competitors on the roster for Lucha Underground.

Closing out the team, the thrilling, King Cuerno! A former Gift of The Gods Champion in Lucha Underground! A former AAA Fusion Champion and the current AAA Latin American Champion. King Cuerno is no stranger to the faces of IMPACT Wrestling and will look to make an impression like only he can on April 6th in New Orleans at WrestleCon.

Again, tickets are still available, but they are going fast and this is a night you will not want to miss. As wrestling fans from all over the world prepare to make their way to New Orleans for this once in a lifetime experience, be sure to witness IMPACT Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground at The Sugar Mill Factory during WrestleCon weekend.

Thoughts: 

It’s still hard to see how this helps Lucha Underground, which exists in a universe completely separate from all other forms of professional wrestling. That little bit of disbelief suspension aside, this is one hell of a six-man tag to announce, and this should be a fun show.

IMPACT News: Petey Williams Says Austin Aries Is Done With IMPACT Wrestling

Published

on

One night after IMPACT Wrestling’s Bound For Glory in Queens, New York, many fans are still left wondering if the moments immediately following the night’s main event were legit or part of the show.

Of course, we’ve all seen and know about the feud between the now-IMPACT World Champion Johnny Impact and Austin Aries seemingly becoming personal on social media. Then, there was the subsequent press conference brawl filled with obscenities that also blurred the lines of entertainment and reality with the fans. Finally, Impact hit Aries with his Starship Pain finisher at Bound For Glory for the three count, Austin nonchalantly rose right to his feet and proceeded to exit the arena while offering middle fingers in numerous directions.

It was later reported that Aries had gone home after the show and wouldn’t be at tonight or tomorrow’s television tapings, which turned out to be the case thus far as he was not present this evening. This led to a lot of talk that Aries was done with the company, since he would not be on IMPACT television for the foreseeable future by missing this week’s tapings.

Today, IMPACT Wrestling star and producer Petey Williams stated on his Wrestling Perspective Podcast that Aries’ contract with the promotion is in fact finished:

“Austin Aries’ contract is done, that match was his last match under contract with IMPACT.”

He would also describe speaking with both Aries and Johnny Impact after the match:

“I am a very professional person. I asked him if he was okay, if he was hurt. I said thank you. I talked to Johnny, asked him if he was okay, told him good match. I talked to Johnny today about a couple things he could’ve tweaked in the match. I did talk to Aries a little bit. I’m not privy to his contract, so I asked what’s next. He said today was his last day under contract and he wasn’t going to be on TV, I left it at that. I got him a ride back to the hotel and haven’t heard from him since.”

WWE News: Sasha Banks Makes Her Return To RAW

Published

on

It has been a few weeks now since WWE announced that RAW Superstar Sasha Banks was suffering from an injury, as she was removed from the Mixed Match Challenge and replaced by Mickie James (check that out here).

While there have been no details given on what exactly is ailing ‘The Boss’, there had been speculation she’s dealing with another back injury (see that story here), something that plagued her in the Fall of 2016. Last week, it was revealed that Sasha was being advertised for Live Events next weekend, more specifically the October 20th show at the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, Maine (find that here).

Before the RAW roster gets there though, Sasha would make her return on tonight’s episode of RAW instead. While ‘The Boss’ was not in action, she was with Bayley in the corner of Natalya as Nattie went one-on-one with Ruby Riott. The match would eventually break down, leading to Banks getting physically involved and clearing the ring alongside Bayley.
