IMPACT Rumors: Chris Jericho Reportedly ‘Is Destined’ To Go To IMPACT Wrestling

Published

on

Despite not stepping into a squared circle since June 9th at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Dominion, reigning IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho has been in the news of late with lots of talk surrounding which promotion he could be heading to next.

Jericho will obviously always be synonymous with WWE, however he is currently a free agent and is not tied down to any one company. In the most recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reports that there’s a belief within the business right now that Jericho “is destined” to go to IMPACT Wrestling at some point. Of course, ‘Y2J’ had a big hand in helping Anthem Sports, the parent company of IMPACT, hire Don Callis as the promotion’s Co-Executive Vice President, as well as getting Scott D’Amore promoted to the same title.

Jericho has stated in the past that he was against working in the United States because it would be a “slap in the face” to WWE Chairman Vince McMahon (check that out here), however Meltzer notes that sentiment has begun to change in the past few months.

EA’s Take: Obviously, this would be a huge coup for IMPACT Wrestling. I just can’t fathom it happening though. I get that there’s a connection between Jericho and IMPACT due to their Canadian ties and friendship with Callis, but ‘Y2J’ has also stated before that he wouldn’t want to “lower his value”. I’m sorry, but signing with IMPACT would do that, at least in my eyes. Perhaps a one-off or an appearance, but I think Jericho actually signing a contract with IMPACT is pretty far-fetched, which some have alluded to. The other question is, could they even afford him? I’m not exactly on the up with IMPACT’s financials, but it would certainly cost them a pretty penny to bring him in for anything.

WWE News: Another Match Made For TLC This Sunday

Published

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.

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

Published

WWE RAW
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.
