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: Mickie James Update, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More! (7/17/19)
News Involving: Mickie James, Finn Balor, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More!
News Here! Mickie James Update, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More!
Latest On Jeff Hardy
In Monday’s shuffle I discussed the news on Jeff Hardy’s latest public intoxication arrest. Since then, more details have been released regarding the incident. TMZ is reporting that Hardy smelled of booze and was passed out in a public stairwell before being arrested.
Once again, Hardy’s struggles with addiction have been well documented in the past, so I am not going to comment on them. Here is hoping that he is able to get things in order and get his life on track.
RAW Ratings See An Increase
RAW continues to slowly climb out of the ratings hole, as this weeks ratings showed an increase in viewership. The hourly breakdown looks like this:
Hour 1 – 2.379 million viewers
Hour 2 – 2.503 million viewers
Hour 3 – 2.478 million viewers
This is good news for WWE, RAW, and USA, as RAW typically has had a hard time keeping viewers into the third hour. RAW was actually a very solid show last night, and one of the first RAW’s in a very long time that I watched from start to finish while it aired live. Slowly, but surely, WWE will do what they can to climb out of the hole.
Mickie James Undergoes ACL Surgery
Earlier today, WWE star Mickie James went under the knife to repair her injured ACL. The injury looks to keep her out of the ring into next year. Her husband, Nick Aldis, took to Twitter to update fans on the successful surgery.
UPDATE: Surgery was a complete success. I’m sure when she’s feeling up to it she’ll share more. Thank you all! 🙌 https://t.co/RxCHyko2UQ

Mickie James is still a very talented wrestler who adds depth to the women’s division. There is still a place for her on the roster, and one can assume that the WWE will want to keep her when she fully recovers.
Finn Balor Taking Time Off?
Finn Balor lost the Intercontinental championship at Extreme Rules, and the loss had many scratching their heads. However, it appears there is reasoning behind it according to Pro Wrestling Sheet, as Balor has requested time off from WWE to recharge. Though he requested time off, it appears that it will not be granted until after the upcoming SummerSlam pay per view.
It will be interesting to see how Balor will be written off of TV. One could assume a SummerSlam match with Bray Wyatt will lead to his exit. Perhaps on his return, he could join his friends in The Club ?
Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Jeff Hardy, RAW Reunion, Paul Heyman and More! (7/15/19)
News Involving Jeff Hardy, RAW Reunion, Paul Heyman and More!
News here! Jeff Hardy, RAW Reunion, Paul Heyman and More!
Jeff Hardy Arrested
According to various news outlets this weekend, WWE star Jeff Hardy was arrested for public intoxication Saturday in South Carolina.Police said they received a report of an intoxicated person in Myrtle Beach about 11 a.m. Shortly after, authorities arrested Hardy without incident and charged him with public intoxication.Hardy posted a $153 bond and was released the same day.In a statement, WWE said, “Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions.”
Jeff Hardy’s battles with substance abuse over the years have been well documented. After period of staying off the radar, Hardy has been in court twice over the past year for alcohol related issues. Here is hoping that Hardy can get things under control.
Huge RAW Planned For Next Week
During Sunday nights Extreme Rules pay per view, WWE aired a commercial for RAW Reunion that will take place on July 22nd. Some of the big names advertised include Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Ric Flair.
It’ll be the BIGGEST reunion in Monday Night #RAW HISTORY.

This seems like a reach for a quick ratings grab, but it is always cool to see the legends return. Potentially we could see some involvement from some of the legends for SummerSlam storylines ?
Paul Heyman Appears At EVOLVE Show
For those of you who didn’t catch the EVOLVE 10th Anniversary show on the WWE Network Saturday night, you missed out on a hell of a show. You also missed out on an appearance from none other than Paul Heyman. Most wrestling fans know that Heyman mentored EVOLVE founder Gabe Sapolosky back in ECW.
“You’re going to watch this match, and you’re going to say to yourselves ‘that was the moment we all knew that this industry is going to EVOLVE.'”@HeymanHustle makes a surprise appearance at #EVOLVE131 ahead of the Winner Takes All Match between @austintheory1 and @RealJDDrake! pic.twitter.com/7ugS1xMr60

Those of you have followed my daily news shuffles, and the random In This Corner articles I put together, know that I rarely follow the indie wrestling scene. However, I took in both the EVOLVE show and AEW Fight For The Fallen. I was extremely impressed with the talent in EVOLVE, and my hopes are that WWE continues to broadcast their shows on the WWE Network.
Enzo and Cass Done With ROH ?
During April’s G1 Supercard Show at Madison Square Garden, fans were shocked to see Enzo and Cass jump the guard rail and started attacking ROH stars. Many felt initially that this may have been a shoot, but it appeared to be a work to lead to a potential appearance in ROH for the two. However, according to Dave Meltzer on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, it appears the relationship between the former WWE stars and ROH is over before it truly began. According to Meltzer, NJPW was unhappy as they were not notified before hand of their appearance, and the company has cut their loses with the two.
It’s Enzo and Cass. I mean, with what little I follow ROH, I can’t really see the two of them fitting with the company long term. However, if you want a team to be a legit heel right out of the chute, you could have that with those two.
