ROH Rumors: Ring Of Honor Reportedly Reaches Out To CM Punk For MSG Show



It’s been over four years since the last time former WWE Superstar CM Punk competed inside the squared circle, quitting the company and the business in general after the 2014 Royal Rumble. Despite this, Punk has remained a polarizing figure in the wrestling industry with fans still clamoring for his return to the ring. Punk, who has said that he’s finished with wrestling, of course ventured into the mixed martial arts world where he is now 0-2 after losing to Mike Jackson at UFC 225 back on June 9th.

Even though the multi-time WWE Champion has remained strong in his stance that he won’t wrestle again, that certainly has not stopped promotions from reaching out to him for appearances. According to F4WOnline, Ring Of Honor has reportedly reached out to Punk in an effort to procure him for the company’s debut at Madison Square Garden for the G1 Supercard with New Japan Pro Wrestling on April 6th, 2019 during WrestleMania weekend. At this time, it’s being said that Punk accepting any offer to appear is considered a “long shot”.

This comes after the rumor mill exploded over the possibility of CM Punk showing up at the big All In event in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois on September 1st after it was reported that he popped up backstage for the event’s press conference. (for more on that go here)

EA’s Take: I’ve been fairly vocal about my feelings on Punk and honestly, I couldn’t care less if he ever came back to wrestling. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be a cool moment as a fan, but I’m definitely not one of the people calling for it. Do I see it happening? Who the hell knows at this point? I’d say ROH did what they were supposed to do by at least trying to get him for such a big event. Trying to fill MSG is going to be a task for them, especially going head-to-head with NXT TakeOver the same night which we KNOW will deliver as it always does.

WWE News: Another Match Made For TLC This Sunday



Randy Orton
WWE has added a Chairs Match to TLC on Sunday!

Just as SmackDown Live is about to go on the air (keep up with all the action with Mitchell’s Live Report), another match has been made official for Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view featuring two of the blue brand’s top Superstars.

After their recent encounters and the shocking unmasking, Rey Mysterio will have his shot at revenge against Randy Orton when they go one-on-one. However, it won’t be just any match as the two will clash in a Chairs Match:

Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton will pull out a chair (or two or 10) to settle their scorching rivalry, and the time and place for the hard-hitting encounter will be at WWE TLC, where they will go head to head (and swing for swing) in a Chairs Match.

The bitter hatred between these two Superstars fueled several jaw-dropping moments, including Orton viciously unmasking The Master of the 619 during the Nov. 20 edition of SmackDown LIVE. Given their chaotic brawls in recent weeks, nothing will come close to the battle that awaits them in this steel sharpens steel affair.

Will Mysterio capitalize on his moment for redemption? Or will The Apex Predator claim another “victim?” Don’t miss Mysterio and Orton swinging for the fences in what promises to be a chaotic Chairs Match at WWE TLC, Sunday, Dec. 16, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

Who do you think will get the win at TLC? Let us know on social media @theCHAIRSHOTcom and always remember to use the hashtag #UseYourHead!

WWE News: RAW Viewership Drops Again, Back To 5th In Rankings (12/10/18)



A look at the ratings for last night’s WWE RAW!

After what could be described as two consecutive brutal ratings weeks for Monday Night RAW (yet still had a good 18-49 number and moved up in the top five rankings), the red brand looked to turn things around last night with its final episode before Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view.


While last night’s numbers were delayed today, they have now dropped and RAW comes in with an overall rating of 2.194, its third straight decrease and a fall of 4% from last week. Here’s how the last month’s worth of ratings look for the red brand:

  • November 19th: 2.493
  • November 26th: 2.368
  • December 3rd: 2.286
  • December 10th: 2.194

Meanwhile, this week is different when it comes to the ratings and rankings comparison, as last week’s show saw a drop in viewership, but was able to rise up a spot in the Cable Top 150 Rankings for the 18-49 demographic. This week, that’s not the case as RAW’s best hour is back down to fifth, while the 9PM and 10PM hours come in sixth and seventh respectively. Here’s the top five:

  1. Monday Night Football – ESPN – 3.46
  2. Monday Night Kickoff – ESPN – 1.36
  3. SportsCenter (12AM) – ESPN – 1.08
  4. Love & Hip Hop – VH1 – 0.79
  5. Monday Night RAW (8PM) – USA Network – 0.78

EA’s Take: At this point, anyone who uses ratings as their be-all, end-all for how WWE’s product or company is doing isn’t going to stop doing so. Especially when the numbers continue to get worse. The 18-49 demographic means nothing to them, but I can only explain its importance so many times, which I’ve done every week for months now. So we’re just going to look at the reasons why. Has the show sucked lately? Yes. Was it improved this week and it just didn’t reflect in the ratings? Yes. The narrative is going to be a lot different come January, believe that.
