TORONTO | LONDON – IMPACT Wrestling has announced two international dream matches for the company’s first live event in the UK in almost three years.

And the company today revealed two unique marquee matches – pitting IMPACT Wrestling’s top stars against the very best of Britain.

Sami Callihan will take on Jimmy Havoc in a clash of hardcore wrestling icons. Callihan has built a reputation as one of the most disrespectful wrestlers on the planet – attacking management, insulting his peers and almost ending the career of Eddie Edwards in a baseball bat attack. He will face Jimmy Havoc, whose violent and bloody style of wrestling has won him a legion of fans and a collection of championships on the British independent scene.

LAX will put their IMPACT Tag Team Titles on the line in a dream match against two of the UK’s most decorated stars. British high flyers Jody Fleisch and Jonny Storm have won titles all around the world in singles and tag team competition. They will now challenge Santana and Oritz for one of the biggest prizes in professional wrestling today.

Other top IMPACT Wrestling stars confirmed to be part of Wrestling MediaCon 2018 include Eli Drake, Matt Sydal, Trevor Lee, Su Yung, Eddie Edwards, Moose and Rich Swann.

Their matches for the Manchester event will be announced each day on the IMPACT Wrestling UK Facebook page at Fans should also follow the Facebook page for details of meet and greets at Wrestling MediaCon 2018.

WWE News: Who Was Added To The Women’s Royal Rumble Today?



All the names added to the Women’s Royal Rumble today!

As was noted yesterday, WWE announced that they would be revealing more participants in next Sunday’s Women’s Royal Rumble Match via Twitter today, with a new name being confirmed every thirty minutes (see the announcement here).

Up until today, only twelve entrants in the match had been revealed after Sasha Banks was removed since she will be facing RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey for the title that night. Here are all the names that were officially added today:

  • Charlotte Flair
  • Naomi
  • Tamina
  • Peyton Royce
  • Billie Kay
  • Dana Brooke
  • Lana
  • Nia Jax
  • Nikki Cross

This now leaves nine spots remaining in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match, giving plenty of room for surprise entries.

EA’s Take: I’m not sure why anything with wrestling fans surprises me anymore, but it’s amazing how much complaining there was that WWE was going to do this. A lot of people assumed they were going to release the rest of the competitors and not save any surprises, even though it was NEVER stated that they were going to do that. Personally, I thought it was a good idea to keep people paying attention to WWE’s Twitter on Championship Sunday in the NFL.

WWE News: Matt Hardy Says He’s Ready To Return, In Best Shape In Years



Matt Hardy
Matt Hardy gives a big update on his in-ring return!

It’s been a number of months now since WWE Superstar Matt Hardy was forced to step away from the ring after years of abuse on his body was beginning to show its affects with his pelvis beginning to fuse with his spine (read about that here).

Last month, Matt revealed in an interview that everything with his rehabilitation has gone “better than expected”, stating that he didn’t have an exact timetable for when he would be back in the ring, but it would happen “sooner than later” (read all of Matt’s comments here). Today, the WWE legend revealed that he has finally been “greenlit”:

At this time there’s still no word on when exactly we could see Hardy back in a WWE ring, but this is certainly exciting news for fans who thought his career was over.

EA’s Take: Sounds like everything went well and although there are going to be some fans who think he should just stay out of the squared circle, at the end of the day it’s his life. If Matt wants to keep going and feels he can still contribute without damaging himself further, I’m all for it. Random guess here, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see him enter the Royal Rumble Match as a surprise entrant.
