All In News: Press Conference Highlights, Rey Mysterio To Appear & More

Published

on

All In Cody Rhodes

With tickets for the Cody and Young Bucks produced All In event in Chicago going on sale today at 4PM EST, a press conference for the show was held at the ProWrestlingTees store in the Windy City. There were a handful of notable news items that came from today’s press conference and below are some highlights:

  • Bernard The Business Bear hyped the crowd after a video featuring Cody & The Young Bucks speaking about the self-funded event
  • Jen Decker comes out with a couple of comments directed towards Vince McMahon (the fans in attendance were quite rowdy and even chanted “*$%# You Vince), then runs down all the Starrcast appearances and mentions CM Punk’s signing on August 31st at the ProWrestlingTees store
  • Cody is out next to talk about the show and gets asked about Flip Gordon, which he doesn’t seem to appreciate (likely in-character). He also brings up CM Punk’s signing at the ProWrestlingTees store, as well as at Hot Topic, Cracker Barrell and Ring Of Honor
  • Cody then introduces the NWA’s Billy Corgan, who announces that Cody will challenge for the NWA Championship at All In
  • Tessa Blanchard is next to talk about the show
  • Hangman Page & Marty Scurll are the next to appear and do a Q&A. They’re asked about Flip Gordon, then notice the question came from someone familiar who is revealed to be Flip himself. This leads to Scurll eating a superkick, but Page drives Flip through a table with a spinebuster, then they both get dragged away by Deonna Purazzo.
  • The Young Bucks come out to close the press conference, announcing they will be the main event at All In. They speak about the price of tickets being inexpensive because they want to reach 10,000 in attendance, then end by announcing Rey Mysterio will also be appearing.

Highlights c/o PWInsider, @2MBChairshot

EA’s Take: I still say if they want to hit 10k, they need to do something more. The constant promotion of CM Punk’s signings only solidifies to me that he will be at All In and I still think that Greg DeMarco’s suggestion of Chris Jericho is also a good one. They need one big name and Mysterio is certainly a guy people know, I don’t know that is quite the push over the top they are looking for/need.

WWE News: Sin Cara Dealing With Injury, Possibly Facing Surgery

Published

on

Following an injury to SmackDown Live Superstar Tye Dillinger at a Live Event over the weekend (read about that here), today it looks like another WWE Superstar from the blue brand is dealing with an ailment of some sort.

Sin Cara has revealed via Instagram Story that he’s down in Birmingham, Alabama, which is of course where Dr. Jeffrey Dugas is located and where nearly all of the company’s performers go when there’s a likely surgery in their future:

Sin Cara has not competed since August 5th at a Live Event in Albany, Georgia when he defeated Aiden English. While there are no details on what exactly Sin Cara is dealing with, the fact that he is even in Birmingham is generally not a good sign. The Chairshot will provide further updates as they become available.

Jeff Jarrett & Global Force Entertainment File Lawsuit Against Anthem

Published

on

The parent company of IMPACT Wrestling, Anthem Sports, has come under fire today as it has been revealed via PWInsider that WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett and his Global Force Entertainment company have filed lawsuit against Anthem for copyright infringement.

Global Force Entertainment, which was founded back in 2014, entered into an agreement with Anthem in early 2017 after Jarrett returned to IMPACT Wrestling that saw IMPACT assume the Global Force Wrestling (Entertainment) name. However, Jarrett would leave IMPACT officially on October 23rd of 2017 which effectively ended the relationship with Global Force.

The lawsuit alleges that Anthem violated state and federal trademark infringements, Jarrett’s exclusive property rights to his name and likeness, as well as Anthem using “a reproduction, counterfeit, copy, or colorable imitation of the GLOBAL FORCE WRESTLING and GFW trademarks”. Additionally, the suit claims Anthem “caused products and/or services to enter interstate commerce designated with variations”, used “a reproduction, counterfeit, copy, or colorable imitation of the GLOBAL FORCE WRESTLING and GFW trademarks” and that Anthem was involved in “Unfair Competition in Violation of Tennessee Common Law” where “GFE and Defendants compete for a common pool of customers. As alleged herein, Defendants have engaged in unfair, deceptive, or fraudulent conduct, which is likely to cause, if it has not already, customer confusion in violation of Tennessee common law”.

On top of that, the lawsuit alleges that initial talks with Anthem to merge together with GFW included “membership and equity in Anthem Sports” that would have seen Jarrett become the Chief Creative Officer. Jarrett also “Upon information and belief, Defendants continue to monetize the GFW Amped content as pay-per-view, premium television, streaming, and other viewing options on a worldwide scale”.

Basically, Jarrett and Global Force claim that Anthem is still making money off of the company despite himself and the deal being terminated. It should be noted that IMPACT’s website is still selling Global Force Wrestling DVD while Anthem does not have license to distribute the content. Jarrett is seeking an court injunction that would prevent Anthem/IMPACT Wrestling from using any GFW content in any manner, including “but not limited to, Global Wrestling Network, GWN, and the GWN logo”.

Jarrett and Global Force are seeking “an award of punitive and/or treble damages for at least three times the amount of Defendants’ profits or GFE’s damages, whichever is greater, due to the nature of Defendants’ wanton and willful conduct” and have also requested a jury trial.
