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!

Published

Jeff Hardy

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.”

Jason’s Take

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.

Jason’s Take

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.

Jason’s Take

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.

Jason’s Take

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.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Latest On Extreme Rules, SummerSlam Changes, Alexa Missing RAW and More! (7/12/19)

New Involving The Latest On Extreme Rules, SummerSlam Changes, Alexa Missing RAW and More!

Published

Alexa Bliss

News Here! The Latest On Extreme Rules, SummerSlam Changes, Alexa Missing RAW and More!

Original RAW Main Event Plans

This past Monday’s RAW featured the main even of Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre taking on Roman Reigns and a partner of his opponents choosing. The mystery partner of Reigns was masked the entire match, and was eventually revealed to be Cedric Alexander. According to PWInsider, the decision to use McIntyre was not made until hours before the show. Original plans called for the company to use an extra or local indie wrestler. The report also notes that there will be storyline follow up for Cedric Alexander that will play out the next few weeks.

Jason’s Take

Some people didn’t care for the choice, but I think it makes sense with the changes that are occurring with the weekly shows. The company hasn’t really done a lot with Alexander since his main roster call up, so my hope is that pairing him with Reigns helps establish him on the RAW roster.

SummerSlam Changes Coming ?

Speaking of changes to the WWE, the Twitter account of WrestleVotes Tweeted that any plans involving the SummerSlam card are subject to change this week with the Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman officially starting in their new roles. WrestleVotes has been very accurate with rumors involving WWE in the past.

Jason’s Take

The company had to finish up story lines before letting Heyman and Bischoff loose, so changes to the SummerSlam plans make sense. RAW and SmackDown have shown some improvement the past couple of weeks, so I am excited to see what changes will continue to occur.

Reason For Alexa Bliss RAW Abscence

The rumor mill was buzzing this week with Alexa Bliss and her absence from RAW. Dave Meltzer noted on the latest addition of Wrestling Observer radio that the reason she missed RAW, and the reason Nikki Cross was added to the match at Extreme Rules is that Alexa is suffering from a bad sinus infection.

“Alexa Bliss has a real bad sinus infection. Originally, they were not going to do the handicap match. The handicap match was a late change and everything that happened on TV on Monday and Tuesday with no Alexa Bliss was because of her sinus infection and they rewrote that whole storyline.”

Jason’s Take

I though things seemed out of sorts on RAW with Nikki Cross winning the beat the clock challenge. I am going to assume the plan is for Bayley to win at Extreme Rules, with Nikki and Alexa planting the seeds for a potential feud.

Extreme Rules Betting Odds

The Chairshot staff picks for the upcoming Extreme Rules pay per view will be up later this weekend, but if you are a betting person, the odds for the winners have been released.
