SHAUL TALKS ABOUT HER DEBUT ON LUCHA UNDERGROUND
I’ve always had an eye on Lucha Underground especially since I left WWE, but honestly I had an agent and he hooked me up with Chris DeJoseph and he was fantastic. And he knew my mom because he was a writer for WWE for a while. He was like, ‘Yeah, we wanted you on the show for a long time but we didn’t know you were interested. And I’m over here like, ‘Yeah dude, let’s do this’ and it was that simple. And of course, I have Chavito there and I knew a lot of people there already and it was very much a homecoming and it was a wonderful atmosphere. I can’t believe it finally aired. I was waiting every single week watching and waiting for the bomb to drop and it’s been fantastic.
SHAUL TALKS ABOUT ANNOUNCING FOR WOW
He [David McLane] just so happened to be at Lucha Underground taping that I happened to be at. I was only there for two days. Lucha Underground tapes for a long time and our paths happened to cross and when he heard me announce; he didn’t see me he just heard me and was like who is that person and I need her to announce for WOW. And then he found out, ‘Oh I’m a Guerrero “. And everything fell into place.
SHAUL TALKS ABOUT WANTING TO DO MORE IN ENTERTAINMENT
I want to do a movie, I want to do more acting. And I have done a lot of theatre in Orlando and I’ve gotten into here, in Chicago. And I would really love to get into film and tv.
SHAUL TALKS ABOUT GOING BACK TO WWE
You know what, when it comes to WWE… I always get the question on social media a lot, where’s it like you know’ why don’t you come back?’ And it’s not really my decision if I want to come back; it’s theirs. You know and of course, I would love it if WWE saw all my stuff with WOW and saw all my stuff with Lucha and saw all my stuff; my potential to manage and announce and do anything I can. WWE will always be my family. My dad and mom were with them than they were with us. So, that is definitely home, it always will be and I appreciate them for everything they did for me and for my husband. So.. I here.. I’m not going to say no.
SHAUL TALKS ABOUT HOW SHE MET AIDEN ENGLISH
We might when I first was at FCW and I was there before him. And I thought I was hot sh*t. You know, I was FCW champion, queen of FCW and he showed up and he was the opposite of what a wrestler would look like. You know, my husband build is different, he is this pale Irish kid, he plays music, this theatre geek and when he first came in; I was like “eww, who’s the pale kid’. When I came back to WWE after I went to rehab, he was this confident man and he was so nice and we lived in the same apartment complex and he was always offering to help me with anything I needed. He was like, ‘ do you need a ride, do you need anything?’ That blossomed into flirting and then the moment we went on our first date, we just haven’t stopped being with each other and the rest is history.
SHAUL TALKS ABOUT WHY PEOPLE SHOULD WATCH WOW
I admire Tessa Blanchard so much, I love watching her in the ring. She is just a fireball and I look up to her so much, she is one of the examples of what I wanted to be if my body could handle wrestling as much as she is killing the game right now. But like, I love watching her and she is so intense. You have to watch WOW.
SHAUL TALKS ABOUT ENTERING THE LUCHA UNDERGROUND RING FOR THE FIRST TIME
It was so overwhelming. It was so humbling… That’s everything I wanted to do for my dad and I know I can’t wrestle the way I want to..but in that 2-minute segment, I felt that I got to be that …finally…what I always wanted to be. I got to be his daughter, I got to bring honour. I’m so thankful for Chavito because he looked out for me the entire time..And I think he would have been proud. I love the Lucha Underground believers, they’re fantastic. They made me feel so welcome… I was terrified.. I was like, ‘I’m going to walk out and everyone was going to be like, ‘who’s this b**ch, I don’t know her’.
Get it all on this week’s brand new episode of AfterBuzz TV’s Women’s Wrestling Weekly: The Number One Women’s Wrestling Show on the Planet!
Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle (2/19/19)
Start your Tuesday off with commentary on DX in the Hall Of Fame, Lacey Evans, heat for Lio Rush, and more!
Jason shuffles into Tuesday with the Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! Today we take a look at news on DX, Lacey Evans, heat for Lio Rush, and more!
Why Becky Lynch Won The Royal Rumble
Many fans have been questioning why Becky Lynch won the Royal Rumble if the goal was to have Charlotte inserted in to storyline with Ronda Rousey. The current storyline between the three would have made more sense had Charlotte won. Dave Meltzer stated on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon was insistent that Becky Lynch win the Royal Rumble.
Are You Ready?
It was announced earlier today that the first members of the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2019 will be none other than D-Generation X. Xpac, Shawn Michaels, HHH, The New Age Outlaws and Chyna will all be a part of the induction.

Big Plans For Lacey Evans?
Since debuting on the main roster and participating in the Royal Rumble, fans have wondered what creatives plans are for Lacey Evans. According to Dave Meltzer and the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Lacey Evans is in for a gigantic push, and there are many backstage officials that are very high on her.
Lio Rush Has Heat ?
Sunday nights finish to the Intercontinental title match between Finn Balor and Bobby Lashley has people scratching their heads. Perhaps there is reason to the breakup of Lashley and his hype man Lio Rush. According to PWI Insider Elite, Rush has heat backstage.
“It appears as if Lio Rush is done with Bobby Lashley. I can tell you behind the scenes there were not a lot of people surprised at that and not a lot of people surprised that Lio took the pin.”
“There are times Lio has a reputation for rubbing people — including other workers the wrong way. Whether that was being held against him and that was part of the reasoning for him losing or whether it was just a decision to protect Lashley and shift the belt to Finn Balor, I guess we’ll have to see based on how Lio is presented in the weeks and months to come.”
Jason’s Thoughts On Today’s News
DX is getting a well deserved Hall Of Fame Induction, but I have mixed feelings on it. This feels like an easy way out for WWE to have Chyna included into the HOF, rather than have her inducted as an individual. Also, I am probably in the minority on this, but there are others more deserving to be in before DX. I personally would have went with the NWO, but I am a mark for the NWO, so that’s just me.
Lacey Evans has the look, and her mic skills aren’t bad, however, she is green as grass. It will be interesting to see what type of program they come up with for her. A clash with Alexa Bliss perhaps?
Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle (2/18/19)
Start your Monday off with comments on news regarding Chris Jericho/IMPACT, AEW Ticket Sales, Becky Lynch and more!
Jason shuffles into Monday with the Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! Today we take a look at news on Chris Jericho/IMPACT, AEW Ticket Sales, Becky Lynch, and more!
More On IMPACT Offer To Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio, and during the broadcast he discussed the offer that IMPACT wrestling made to him a few months ago: (credit to Fightful for the transcription below)
“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar to WWE as far as what I bring to the table. That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince, I want that kind of a deal. When I was starting to talk with Tony (Khan) and New Japan and Impact as well– Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well.”

Why The Women Didn’t Headline Elimination Chamber
Initially, it was thought that the historic Women’s Tag Team Championship match would headline the Elimination Chamber pay per view, however, according to Fightful, Vince McMahon made the change to swap the match out with the men’s Elimination Chamber match. McMahon felt the women’s match would get the reaction desired to close out the show.
Becky Lynch Re-Injures Knee At Live Event
While it appears to be only in storyline, Becky Lynch appeared to re-injure her knee after attempting to attach Charlotte Flair at a house show Saturday evening.
