ROH Rumors: Madison Square Garden Hosting ROH During WrestleMania Weekend?

Published

on

In case you missed it, officials ‘The World’s Most Famous Arena’ Madison Square Garden are not too happy with their relationship with WWE over the past few years (which you can check out here). Since the completion of the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, WWE has continuously chosen to run televised events there, leaving Madison Square Garden out in the cold reportedly due to high production costs.

We previously noted how this has led MSG to be more open than ever to bringing in other wrestling companies, most notably the Mexico-based AAA who has a date set for September. It was then revealed this week that Ring Of Honor was looking to get into The Garden with plans to do so in 2019 (you can find that here). It was also speculated that it could be for a possible ‘All In 2’ show.

More speculation on a possible Ring Of Honor show at Madison Square Garden has also begun finding its way out after WrestlingInc has noted that the show could take place during WrestleMania 35 weekend next year (which is set to take place at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey). WWE is currently set to hold all of their WrestleMania activities at the Barclays Center.

EA’s Take: Logically, it does make sense for Ring Of Honor to have a show at Madison Square Garden during WrestleMania weekend. One of the reported “last straws” for Madison Square Garden officials was WWE choosing Barclays for their WrestleMania events instead of MSG, so I can see how that would add up. However, let’s consider how this came out. WrestlingInc simply speculated it, there’s no evidence/proof/justification for them throwing that out there unless they have information nobody else has, but if that was the case, don’t you think they would have jumped on reporting it? I do. PURE RUMOR.

WWE News: The Latest On Crown Jewel, No Plans To Change Locations Yet

Published

on

To say that controversy continues to follow the relationship between the WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia might be the understatement of the year the latest bit surrounding the upcoming Crown Jewel event and the company is beyond the scope of just professional wrestling.

After the disappearance of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi and what many to believe his murder at the hands of the Saudis has led the WWE to come under fire not only from their own Universe, but United States government officials as well (read that here). Earlier today, it was noted that WWE.com was no longer showing the the link to purchase tickets and location, leading many to believe this is an indication the show will be heading someplace else or completely cancelled.

In an update to that story, both Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer and David Bixenspan of Deadspin have confirmed with the company that the show is moving forward as scheduled. Additionally, a company spokesman told Bixenspan that any removal of the link or location for Crown Jewel was done in error, stating that, “The event should be listed”.

To further proof of WWE going ahead with the show in some capacity, two World Cup Qualifiers have been announced for tomorrow night’s RAW as Drew McIntyre takes on Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose faces Dolph Ziggler.

According to PWInsider, at this time plans will not be changing “unless something drastic happens”. To further that, there has been speculation that WWE may have given itself a “soft deadline” of tomorrow to make a final decision. With World Cup matches being announced for RAW, some are taking that had drawn the conclusion that the location isn’t going to be changing. This all comes despite even more pressure from United States Senator Richard Blumenthal, who said the following to WCBS News Radio 820 on Friday:

“I would hope that WWE will recognize on its own a conscience and conviction if there is proof that Saudi officials approved and ordered this kind of killing, and I would lean first on the United States government to do its duty so that it can lead private interests like WWE, and the first place to look is to the United States of America.”

on

NXT UK action continued for the second day in a row today at the Plymouth Pavilions in Plymouth, England, as the brand that will be debuting on WWE Network this Wednesday taped another round of television.

Although today’s events won’t be seen for a few more weeks, there were some erroneous reports coming out of yesterday’s results from multiple outlets regarding a match being made for Evolution. It was said that Isla Dawn vs. Rhea Ripley for the NXT UK Women’s Title was set for the all women’s pay-per-view on October 28th, however that was never actually the case and the two squared off today.

Additionally, Triple H revealed his big announcement that was teased yesterday. Here are the results:

  • Dark Match: Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams defeated Dan Moloney & Tucker
  • Triple H and NXT UK General Manager Johnny Saint open the tapings and unveil the new NXT UK Tag Team Titles
  • Mark Coffey & Wolfgang defeated Ashton Smith & Ligero
  • Joseph Conners defeated Jack Starz

  • Dave Mastiff defeated Eddie Dennis
  • Jordan Devlin defeated Wild Boar Mike Hitchman
  • Fabian Aichner defeated Eddie Ryan
  • Moustache Mountain defeated Saxon Huxley & Tyson T-Bone
  • NXT UK Women’s Title: Rhea Ripley retained over Isla Dawn
  • Toni Storm defeated Charlie Morgan
  • James Drake & Zack Gibson defeated Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews
  • Nina Samuels defeated Killer Kelly
  • Joe Coffey defeated Travis Banks
  • Special Referee – Shawn Michaels: Moustache Mountain & Travis Banks defeated The Coffeys & Wolfgang. Pete Dunne helps Moustache Mountain & Banks get the victory, Michaels hits Sweet Chin Music on The Coffeys & Wolfgang. This was very likely a dark main event.

WWE Rumors: Possible Indication Crown Jewel Is Being Moved?

Published

on

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re likely caught up on the big story of the week surrounding WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 2nd.

The alleged murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi officials (check the story out here) has led to a lot of fans clamoring for the show to be cancelled and another round of threats by WWE Network subscribers that they will no longer be paying customers should the event go on in its current location. Also, a number of United States Senators have called for WWE to at minimum, “rethink the relationship” (find that story here). Meanwhile, WWE’s only comments on the matter have been that they are “monitoring the situation”.

In some interesting news today, the link to purchase tickets and location have been removed from WWE.com which has led many to believe this is an indication the show will be heading someplace else or even cancelled altogether.

It should be noted there has been some talk that matches scheduled for Crown Jewel could be pushed back to Survivor Series on November 18th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Of course, Crown Jewel currently has the World Cup tournament, Triple Threat for the Universal Title featuring Brock Lesnar’s next match and the big Brothers Of Destruction vs. D-Generation X match scheduled as of today.

The Chairshot will provide further updates as they become available.
