Reported Details On WWE’s Pursuit Of The Young Bucks & Hangman Page

Young Bucks All In
The reported details on negotiations between WWE, Young Bucks & more!

If you are a WWE fan and were hoping to see the company sign any members of The Elite, whether that be Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Hangman Page or Kenny Omega, then the launch of All Elite Wrestling may be seen as a disappointment to you.

While some fans have likened their favorites not going to WWE to the career of WWE Hall Of Famer Sting (by not signing with the company during his prime), those same fans can’t really fault the company for lack of effort. We’ve heard multiple times now how WWE strongly pursued all members of The Elite and we may have some more specifics on what the company was offering.

According to Dave Meltzer in The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE’s dealings with all of The Elite were done exclusively by Triple H and as it pertains to The Young Bucks, they were being offered money that was similar to AJ Styles’ contract. Additionally, it’s being said WWE also was looking to make Being The Elite a weekly show on the WWE Network and a special clause in their deal where The Jacksons could get out of the three-year contract within the first six months if they weren’t pleased with the relationship, something that the company has reportedly never offered.

On top of that, Meltzer also notes that WWE would have debuted The Young Bucks at the Royal Rumble this month with a “significant storyline” on the way to WrestleMania 35. It’s being said that despite not signing with WWE, The Jacksons walked away from the discussions and “heavily praised” Triple H, who also reportedly took recent parodies of himself on Being The Elite “well”.

Lastly, with regards to Hangman Page, Meltzer reports that he was also made a strong offer which would have seen him making “main roster money to work NXT”.

EA’s Take: Moving forward, I think people are going to make their own judgments on anything related to AEW when it comes from Dave Meltzer or even Ryan Satin for that matter. We always want our readers to do that anyways, but “Always Use Your Head” really needs to apply more so with these things. It’s quite apparent that Meltzer, Satin and who knows who else is working with AEW in some form or fashion. Honestly, it’s brilliant marketing by AEW. It just means we need to use caution with stuff like this. I’m sure there’s probably truth and fiction to it to some degree.

Welcome everyone to Flaming Pearl Oracles!  This will be the article discussing future events and match results through out Asia.

Before I begin, know that Asian and many in the Pacific do not provide results like you are accustomed to.  First, the promotions do not provide complete results, rather only one or two matches.  Secondly, unless you watch the matches (a few promotions are on ‘Nothing Else on TV’ livestream) you will not be provided details regarding how a match took place.

Finally, many of their articles are more advertisement than substance.  I will work to get as much information as I can to provide you the fullest account possible.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match? (3/22/19)

News here! Commentary today on Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match ?

WWE Re-considering Kurt Angle’s WrestleMania Match ?

As I discussed in yesterday’s shuffle, there has been a lot of backlash in regards to Baron Corbin being named Kurt Angle’s opponent for his retirement match at WrestleMania. Originally, it had been widely reported that there are no plans to change the matchup. However, that looks like it could possibly changes. The Twitter account @WrestleVotes (an account that is usually correct with wrestling rumors) Tweeted today that the match is being re-considered.

Jason’s Take

Not surprised by this one. As I said yesterday, I am not a fan of Angle, but he deserved better. If they do change it, will they go with John Cena ?

Jim Ross To AEW?

We know that Jim Ross is finishing up with the WWE this month, and has long been rumored to be a part of AEW. Today, Ross appeared on Outside The Lines, and confirmed he has had talks with AEW.

Jason’s Take

Ross jumping to AEW is probably a worse kept secret than Kenny Omega joining the company. Ross being a part of the AEW announce team would give the company a recognizable voice that many American fans will recognize. But, much like I asked yesterday, what does bringing in former WWE wrestlers, announcers, and WCW match types due to generate interest? Are we moving forward or reliving the past ?

IMPACT Star Joins AEW

Speaking of actual AEW roster additions, the company announced today in the latest edition of their YouTube series The Road To Double Or Nothing, that IMPACT knockout Allie will be joining the company.

Jason’s Take

Allie is a great addition to the AEW women’s division. From what little I watch of IMPACT, Allie has been more than entertaining.

Update On Dana Warrior’s Creative Role

If you have been following the Chairshot the past few weeks (and if you haven’t, why the hell not?) you have seen many of the writers, including myself, discuss Dana Warrior and her roll on the creative team. Earlier this week I discussed her recent promotion to a full time creative role. Dave Meltzer noted today that there recently was an important creative meeting that other creative team members were not a part of.

Jason’s Take

It’s a slow news day, and I like to posted five news items. So to be honest, I’m killing space with this one. In all seriousness though, great reporting by Dave Meltzer. That’s why you should be reading the Chairshot everyday. We try to weed out the BS.

Original WrestleMania Plans For Rey Mysterio

This week on SmackDown Live, it was confirmed that Rey Mysterio would be taking on Samoa Joe for the United States championship at WrestleMania. The Wrestling Observer noted that there were originally other plans for Mysterio. The original plan was for Andrade vs. Mysterio in a hair vs. mask match

Jason’s Take

Mysterio vs Andrade at WreslteMania would have been a very entertaining match.
