As has been noted, Tenille Dashwood was pulled from this weekend’s Ring Of Honor tour of the United Kingdom (read that here), Honor ReUnited, due to what was being called a “non-serious medical condition”, however little details were given as to what that was.
Today via Twitter, Tenille opened up about suffering from psoriasis, a skin condition that she has dealt with since she was a teenager that forced her to be removed from Honor ReUnited:
“In the past I didn’t have the courage to share this with you all. Today, with social media highlighting the glamorous side of life, I feel it’s important to share a dose of reality.
I suffer from a skin condition known as Psoriasis. It’s a common condition many suffer from and can probably relate to, ranging from mild symptoms to much more severe. I’ve fought this condition since I was 14 years old luckily having times that were much more manageable, however I have currently been battling the worst flare up to date. This was unfortunately triggered when I was sick recently and has now covered my entire body. It’s not contagious and there is no cure! Almost unbearable. I’ve tried to hide it (when it’s calm I can and have for years) and continue on stubbornly with my commitments and have for a while now since back when I was on tour in Australia and NZ. However, this past weekend things escalated quickly and I ended up in hospital desperate for relief.. This is what unfortunately led to me having to pull out of my ROH UK tour. I simply need to take care of myself! Happy to say I’ve seen a little improvement since the weekend and fingers crossed it keeps getting better quick now!
Of all the therapies, creams and medicines I’ve tried over the years, including chemotherapy medication, incredibly the only thing I found to help was diet and routine. Thankfully this led me to learn about my health and the impacts diet has on my body. My diet is extremely limited right now as I work on improving my gut health, my immune system and eliminating anything that is toxic to me, which is most things right now. I am back in the fight and I am determined to get this to calm down again by implementing what I have learned. Giving up isn’t an option!
For years growing up I was ashamed, embarrassed and depressed over my appearance. My greatest fear was that I would never achieve my dream of becoming a Professional Wrestler and working with the WWE. But I did it! Today, I stand here as a strong, confident and successful woman that has achieved those impossible dreams and knows that appearance does not change who we are and what we can become.
If you or anyone else you know is going through a hard time please share this, let them know they’re not alone! Believe me, I know it’s an emotional rollercoaster but it’s important to stay positive and keep fighting because anything is possible!”

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More! (4/23/2019)
News involving the Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More!
News here! Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More!
Vikings Get A Name Change
Many fans and wrestling personalities commented on the War Raiders name change to the Viking Experience. Now, it looks like the WWE has changed the teams name again. They will now be known as the Viking Raiders according to their WWE.com bio.
I get that WWE wants to name outside teams with their own in house names, but I still don’t understand why they were renamed from War Machine. I could have lived with War Raiders as well, but what do I know.
Cesaro Moved To RAW
Earlier today, we told you about the superstars that are moving to SmackDown Live. Now it appears that a superstar from the blue brand will be moving to RAW. POST Wrestling is reporting that Cesaro will be moving to RAW, effectively ending The Bar.
Cesaro and Sheamus had a great run as a tag team, and its a shame that both of them are not moving over to RAW, as I feel there is still some mileage left in the team.
AEW Signs 4 More
AEW continues to add talent to what is already shaping up to be an impressive roster. The signings include Leva Bates, Peter Avalon, and the tag team Private Party.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; AEW is already shaping up to have one of the more impressive female rosters in North America. Here is hoping that it will live up to the hype.
WWE Holding Tryout In China
WWE continues to hold tryouts on foreign soil as the company will hold a tryout in China on July 15th to the 18th. According the press release:
SHANGHAI, China and STAMFORD, Conn. — WWE today announced that it will return to China in search of the next generation of Superstars by holding a talent tryout in Shanghai, its largest tryout in China to date. The four-day tryout, from Monday, July 15, through Thursday, July 18, will give up to 50 male and female athletes from China the opportunity to showcase their abilities, with the goal of being selected to begin training at the state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.
“We are excited to return to Shanghai following the huge success of the first tryout in 2016,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “I have a personal message to every athlete and performer in China who has a dream of becoming a WWE Superstar: I am coming to Shanghai to help you make that happen. This is real, this is your chance. Step up and take this opportunity to change your life forever.”
This isn’t your father’s WWE. Hell, this isn’t the WWE from when I was younger. WWE continues to search and find talent to bring in to the company. You can say what you want, but the company does a great job in tapping into the foreign talent markets.
Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black Moved to WWE Smackdown
Did Charlotte Flair have anything to do with this?
Three talents get shaken up once more: Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black head to WWE Smackdown in a WWE Superstar Shake-Up reversal.
In a surprising move, WWE has changed the profiles for Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black to the blue brand, WWE Smackdown. Black was assigned to Raw during the Superstar Shake-Up, and Andrade and Vega were moved there in a spot that saw Andrade get a clean victory over Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor.
The internet, of course, immediately jumps to conclusions about the Latin representation of Smackdown (Rey Mysterio was also moved to Raw), as well as the relationship between Charlotte Flair and Andrade. Aleister and Zelina are married, and WWE has been trying to keep couples together. Do you think Charlotte Flair is responsible for this move?
Greg DeMarco’s Take on this WWE Superstar Shake-Up Reversal
I stand in the middle! I know, I don’t do that often. But Andrade to Raw made a ton of sense, as he can be a workhorse there and eat up TV time by putting on great matches. Smackdown is loaded (even more so), and I really hope 3 people move back to Raw in the process. As for why? This can definitely be a case of “LOLCHARLOTTEWINS” as she and Andrade are of course an item. If so, that shows how strong of a pairing Zelina and Andrade are if she went with him, and since Zelina and Aleister are married, Black goes as well. I could see the four of them traveling together, honestly.
This was originally reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet:
UPDATE: Aleister Black is now officially listed on WWE dot com as a SmackDown Superstar as well. His profile states: "After the 2019 Superstar Shake-up, Black set his sights on changing the landscape of SmackDown LIVE."
