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.

WWE Elimination Chamber Results: WWE Championship Match
Was Daniel Bryan able to walk out of WWE Elimination Chamber still BOTH the Planet’s and WWE Champion?
Six men fought it out in the main event of WWE Elimination Chamber for The New Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship. Did the Planet’s Champion retain?
The six men involved were:
- Kofi Kingston (with Big E and Xavier Woods, starting in the near right pod)
- Jeff Hardy (starting in the far right pod)
- Randy Orton (starting in the near left pod)
- AJ Styles (starting in the near left pod)
- Samoa Joe (starting in the ring)
- WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (with Eric Rowan, starting in the ring)
Does he have an advantage? All 4 of the last 4 (non-tag) Elimination Chamber matches have been won by first time entrants.

Kofi Kingston was THE fan’s favorite headed into this match. But he started in a pod, as the first two men in the match were Samoa Joe and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (the Ring Of Honor fan in me is happy).
Order of events:
- Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe started the match at 0:00
- Kofi Kingston entered the Chamber at 5:16
- AJ Styles entered the Chamber at 10:27
- AJ Styles eliminated Samoe Joe at 14:34
- Jeff Hardy entered the Chamber at 15:14
- Daniel Bryan eliminated Jeff Hardy at 17:58
- Randy Orton entered the Chamber at 19:57
- Randy Orton eliminated AJ Styles at 22:21
- Kofi Kingston eliminated Randy Orton at 24:01
- The final two men in the match were WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston
- Daniel Bryan pinned Kofi Kingston at 36:35 to retain the WWE Championship
