Results from WWE’s Live Event in Santiago, Chile!

With this week’s episodes of WWE’s RAW and SmackDown Live all wrapped up, the company’s touring schedule is a bit different as the red brand headed to South America before the weekend to begin Live Events last night in Santiago, Chile.





While nearly all of the blue brand will be on their way to Canada this weekend, a couple of their Superstars have joined RAW’s tour this week as fans who attended last night got to witness a lucha dream match when Rey Mysterio went one-on-one with Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas. On top of that, RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey defended her title in a TLC preview against Nia Jax, plus Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor and the rest of the red brand’s top stars were all in action.

Additionally of note, it previously had been reported that Natalya was suffering from a legitimate elbow injury and was written off of television this week on RAW (read that report here), however that is untrue as she has since competed at the Tribute To The Troops tapings and also appeared at this event. Below are the results:

  • Triple Threat: Drew McIntyre defeated Dolph Ziggler & Finn Balor
  • Natalya makes her way to the ring and calls out Ruby Riott, but instead gets jumped by the entire Riott Squad. Mickie James and Dana Brooke join them until Bayley and Ember Moon make the save. They powerbomb Sarah Logan through a table, but the table doesn’t break and Natalya instead crashes down on her with a splash.
  • Cruiserweight Title: Buddy Murphy retained over Gran Metalik
  • Rey Mysterio defeated Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas
  • No Disqualification Handicap Match: Elias defeated Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley & Drew McIntyre, this match started as Elias vs. Corbin but Baron changed the match. Elias gets the win after a distraction by Apollo Crews
  • Apollo Crews, Heath Slater, No Way Jose & Titus O’Neil defeated Jinder Mahal, Rhyno & The Revival, after the match Curt Hawkins comes out and challenges Apollo
  • Apollo Crews defeated Curt Hawkins
  • RAW Women’s Title: Ronda Rousey retained over Nia Jax by DQ, Tamina interferes and Ronda demands a Handicap Match
  • Handicap Match: Ronda Rousey defeated Nia Jax & Tamina
  • Intercontinental Title: Seth Rollins retained over Dean Ambrose

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Extreme Rules Match, Mysterio Update, Changes To Raw? and More! (6/25/2019)

News Involving Extreme Rules Match, Mysterio Update, Changes To Raw? and More!

News here! News involving Extreme Rules Match, Mysterio Update, Changes To Raw? and More!

Winner Take All Match At Extreme Rules

To kick off Monday’s RAW, an interesting matchup was announced for the upcoming Extreme Rules pay per view. Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch will team up to face Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans. The winners will claim both the Women’s and Universal championships. The match will have a stipulation that if Rollins and Lynch win then Corbin and Evans can never get another match again with them.

Jason’s Take

This is an interesting matchup. Essentially, a partner losing costs their team their respective titles, so there could be plenty of opportunity for some type of swerve from WWE. I am actually intrigued about this match, and curious what direction the company will take with it.

Betting Odds On WWE Stars Jumping To AEW

Sports Betting Dime has released its betting odds on which WWE superstars are favored to jump to AEW. The current odds and superstars are:

Dolph Ziggler (+200)
Finn Balor (+275)
Shinsuke Nakamura (+300)
Luke Harper (+450)
Sasha Banks (+1000)
Rusev (+1000)
The Revival (+1000)

Jason’s Take

Shinsuke is still in the midst of a long term deal, so he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, neither is Sasha Banks. You have to assume that AEW has a limited amount of potential roster openings for current WWE stars, and I would guess there would be a long thought process internally about who they would be interested in. Maria and Mike, and Mojo Rawley recently re-signed with WWE, when one could say they would be favored to jump ship. It all comes down to money. Yes, Rawley, Mike and Maria aren’t probably used to their potential, and they know that. But if WWE is going to pay them big money for an extension, of course they are going to take it. 99.9% of stars in WWE would most likely rather take the money than be a top name on the card in AEW. Jon Moxley seems to be the lone exception so far. It is fun to play fantasy booker, but if one were to listen to the rumors of which wrestler is leaving WWE, Dolph Ziggler would have been gone from the company at least a dozen times by now.

Rey Mysterio Injury Update

PWInsider has an update regarding Rey Mysterio’s injury. It looks like Mysterio is targeted to return in July at the July 8th in Newark, NJ if he passes medical evaluations.

Jason’s Take

This would be just in time for an angle/program for the SummerSlam pay per view. Perhaps a match with Samoa Joe?

New Structure To Matches On RAW And SmackDown?

With the sagging television ratings, WWE has tried to do various changes to the weekly program to generate ratings. One of the changes Vince McMahon is looking into making involves adding rounds to matches similar to boxing according to Bryan Alvarez and Wrestling Observer Radio. This is too allow matches to not occur during commercial breaks.

Jason’s Take

Many long time, hardcore wrestling fans may remember the round system that was apart of the matches in the short lived AWF promotion in the mid 90’s. It didn’t work out to well for them, and I can’t see it working for WWE. This seems like one of those attempted get rich quick schemes. It isn’t going to draw ratings. The WWE match format has  been the same for over 50 years, don’t change it.

News here! Lars Injured, ICW Champ Passes, UK WrestleMania and More!

Lars Sullivan Injured

Last week, it had been widely reported that Lars Sullivan had suffered a knee injury. Dave Meltzer has reported that the injury is serious, and could keep Sullivan out 6 to 9 months.

Jason’s Tale

Many say that this is karma. I won’t say if I agree or not. Sullivan appeared to be in line for a big push, but, even with the injury, that could still be the case. The return timeline would put Sullivan on track for a return during WrestleMania season.

ICW Champion Passes Away

According to the official Twitter account of UK bases promotion ICW, ICW Champion, Adrian ‘Lionheart’ McCallum, has passed away at 36. No cause of death was revealed.

Jason’s Take

Another sad and early death in wrestling. Many of you may remember Lionheart as back in 2014 during a match with AJ Styles, his neck was broken in two places, and was thought to never walk, let alone wrestle, again,

Nikki Bella’s In Ring Career Is Over

Wednesday evening, the Bella Twins made an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Nikki Bella revealed that he in ring career is over due to a cyst on her brain.

“I really wanted to go back and fight for the tag titles. I’ve always had my neck issues and after neck surgery, it hasn’t been ok. I feel like I needed to get that check up before we went back for the tag titles. I herniated the disc above where I had surgery. I had all this inflammation around the metal and I have a cyst on my brain.”

Jason’s Take

Regardless of what you think of them and their in ring ability, their contribution to the WWE Divas division and the the exposure they brought to it cannot be understated. Sending well wishes Nikki’s way
