Allie Talks About What She Doesn’t Share on Her Hit YouTube Channel:
I don’t show or share too much personal information when it comes to me and my relationships. Me and my husband work together on Impact Wrestling and we work the indies together. So people kind of know us from there. But when it comes to our personal life; I sort of try to keep that separate because some things are sacred and it’s so important to keep your privacy, especially in this day in age where everything is so accessible. So I try to keep that a little separate and I don’t show him to often, just once in a while.
Allie Shares Her Passion for Mental Health Issues:
Something that is really important to me that I want to speak openly about is mental health issues. That is something I want to speak more openly about and devote more time on my channel specifically for those things. They are very sensitive and very important and I don’t feel right just throwing up a video. It’s something I want to spend a lot of time on. So, that is something I hope to get into in the near future.
Allie Talks About Her Relationship with Rosemary and Gives Us An Update on Her Injury:
She is good. She is coming along. In a short amount of time, she has really healed up quite well and hopefully, she will be back at it soon.
Allie Talks About What Has Changed in the Wrestling Scene Since She Started:
The attitude toward women’s wrestling has changed quite a bit since I’ve started. It feels now that there is… kind of this place craved out for us and we are being showcased a lot more and I think it is generally a lot more respected. When I came in, I looked up to Trish, Jazz, Molly, Lita and Ivory and that generation. Then there was a transition from wrestling to more of the modelling aspect to it. I don’t want to knock it. I think there is a place for everyone in wrestling. But I know specifically in my head, I wanted to be taken seriously as a wrestler.
Allie Talks About WWE’s Women’s Pay Per View:
I think it’s really amazing and exciting that WWE is doing the pay-per-view. Because I think that it shines a light on these athletes that so deserve it. WWE is a huge company and there are eyes on it all the time so if they doing something so big and bold like having an all women’s pay-per-view; people are going to pay attention to that. So it helps all of us overall.
Allie Talks About Her Relationship with Gail Kim:
I looked up to her (Gail) so much. To step in the ring with her at TNA and to have a match with her at Bound For Glory… it blows my mind that this has all happened in such a short amount of time. She offers advice all the time. She is one of the most giving and patient, encouraging people I’ve ever worked with male or female. She really wants us to work hard and represent the division well. I feel blessed and lucky to be able to work with her.
Allie Talks About Channeling Rosemary for Her Match With Su Yung:
It was a meeting of the minds coming together and having this idea. And they approached me about it and said we are thinking of doing this. I sat with Rosemary for a long time and we talked about it. And it certainly helped me to present that so well because I know her so well and I worked with her for a very very long time.
Allie Talks About Taking Acting Classes:
I found that the classes have helped a lot with backstage segments and promos and pre-tapes and things like that.
Allie Talks About Avenging Rosemary:
I really want to get my hands on Su Yung and avenge Rosemary. That is my number one goal right now… getting back in the ring with Su for sure. Su and then we will get to Tessa.
Allie Talks About Tag Team Belts at Impact:
I would love it. I mean how awesome would it be if there was an actual team demon bunny? I think if the fans demanded it and we had enough of us to create the division…. It happened before so why not again?

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."
