Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Bray Wyatt On Raw, All Out Sold Out, WWE Talent News And More! (6/17/19)

Mike And Maria Re-sign With WWE

Last month in the shuffle, I discussed the news that Mike and Maria Kanellis had expiring contracts with WWE. Many of you discussed their potential jump to AEW on the Chairshot Facebook page. In what many are considering to be a bit of a shock, the couple has reach a long term agreement to re-sign with WWE, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet. No contract terms were disclosed.

Jason’s Take

I am a bit shocked that they re-signed with WWE, and figured a move back to ROH or a jump to AEW seemed logical. While many, including myself, feel that WWE hasn’t done much with the couple, Mike Kanellis did have a substance abuse battle last year in which the company stood by him during his difficult time. Perhaps due to the loyalty the company showed then, and mostly likely a decent wage, were the reasons the couple chose to re-sign. What if Maria re-signed and Mike didn’t?

All Out Sold Out

In what must be considered great news for AEW, the All Out show sold out in less than 15 minuets. According to various outlets, ticket sites for the event have over 70,00 people in online waiting rooms waiting to purchase tickets. The Sears Center in Chicago will hold roughly 12,000 people for this event.

Jason’s Take

It is great that the company has been so successful in ticket sales when WWE is hurting to sell tickets to Stomping Grounds. However, can the company sell out venues week after week for live television ? Not taking any credit away from the company, but many are comparing AEW ticket sales to WWE ticket sales. It is a little tough to be doing that when the company has yet to air a weekly product.

Bray Wyatt On RAW?

One of the most entertaining segments on RAW lately has been the Firefly Funhouse and Bray Wyatt. According to PWInsider,  Wyatt is scheduled to appear on RAW during tonight’s episode.

Jason’s Take

Many agree that Wyatt has been the most entertaining segment of RAW. How they re-debut Wyatt will be key. My hope is is that the company finally does something with Wyatt, as Wyatt is money.

Latest On WWE Talent Exodus

Since the formation of AEW last October, it’s been almost weekly that we hear about someone leaving WWE to jump to AEW. According to Dave Meltzer, many inside WWE are turning down big money deals to potentially jump to AEW.

“They were just in town and everybody wants out. I won’t say everybody because that’s not fair. Roman Reigns doesn’t want out. But the amount of people who have contacted AEW would blow your mind,” Meltzer said. “There are people that are counting down the days. There are guys who have told me, including guys in AEW now, that they cannot believe that they turned the offer down [from WWE] but they did. I know people in WWE right now who are not interested in signing again and they can’t believe they are turning down the money.”

Jason’s Take

Let’s be honest, we are going to hear news of someone wanting to leave WWE daily. AEW isn’t going to, nor are they going to be interested to, sign every ex-WWE star. Many people that I had felt would have left WWE (Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Mike and Maria Kanellis) have re-signed with the company. You could make the argument for many of WWE’s stars jumping to AEW in order to add some life to their careers. Wrestling is one of the most unpredictable forms of entertainment as far as determining what talent will head where.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: CM Punk/AEW, Moxley vs Omega, WWE/FOX and More! (6/14/19)

New Wrestling Promotion Launches

2019 has been a very busy year for wrestling, especially when it comes to new promotions launching. Former WWE stars Alberto Del Rio and Chavo Guerrero have partnered together to launch Nacion Lucha Libre. Some of the announced roster includes MVP, Carlito, Del Rio’s former ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez, LAX, and Pentagon. Del Rio has also hinted in signing currently contracted WWE stars when their contracts run up.

Jason’s Take

Obviously, this won’t be direct competition with the WWE, however it can draw fans away from the Mexico fan base the company has attempted to build. I am wondering if even though fans are unhappy with WWE, if all these new promotions are leading to an over saturation of product.

Moxley vs Omega At All Out

You have to hand it to AEW, as they are creating some very interesting matchups. Today, the company announced that Jon Moxley will take on Kenny Omega at the August 1st All Out event.

Jason’s Take

This matchup is intriguing to say the least. Two completely different styles of wrestling, creating what I hope to be a great match. This one shouldn’t dissapoint.

CM Punk All In On All Out?

One of the big names that has long been rumored to join AEW is CM Punk. Punk seems to be done with wrestling, but every time AEW has announced an event, fans start up the rumor mill. With the upcoming All Out show taking place in Punk’s hometown of Chicago, many speculate Punk will make an appearance. Punk seems to have shot down that speculation in his latest Tweet.

Jason’s Take

Wrestling has always been a business where a person never could say never. While it is unlikely that Punk signs with AEW, there will always be the speculation that he will. But what would Punk offer to the upstart company? Name recognition ? Could Punk still go in the ring ?

SmackDown On FOX Commercials Start To Air

We all know that SmackDown will be moving to FOX this October, and the network paid a lot of money for WWE programing. FOX looks like it has the wheels in motion for the promotional blitz informing network viewers that SmackDown is heading to the network. Below is a commercial that has been airing, and many are pointing out that the advertisement contains a redesigned logo for the show.

Jason’s Take

FOX spent a lot of money to get WWE programming, so it’s no surprise that they are airing commercials four months in advance. Or could it be that FOX is worried about the low ratings that WWE programming has been generating?
