Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Shares His Thoughts on the Lucha Brothers Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr. Working with Multiple Promotions Including All Elite Wrestling

“Let me just talk about Mexico for a second, when it comes to those guys. Those two fellas are such big deals and they’re so valuable that all these companies down there that hate each other are willing to share. Just like back in the day when you had Mil Mascaras. There was you know, Mil {Mascaras}, El Hijo Del Santo and others that can jump to whatever and do independent stuff and what have you down in Mexico. And it seems like those guys are you know, to me they must be of that caliber because they’re working for AAA, CMLL…and you know what, not just anyone in wrestling can get away with that. If I am thinking of others that are available right now there is {Chris} Jericho, there was Rey Mysterio before he signed back with Vince {McMahon}…here is a potential issue. When you’re trying to sell your TV show or potential TV show to a major network they are not going to want some of your main talent being able to show up on other people’s television. That’s an issue, a real issue.”

Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Shares His Thoughts The Undertaker Removing WWE Affiliation on Social Media

“If anyone ever followed Shawn Michaels on social media before he took the job back at the Performance Center it was a similar situation. Shawn was taking outside appearances; I did appearances with him. For independent wrestling shows, the catch was it has to be separate, the appearance has to be separate, it’s not part of the wrestling show. So, I am pretty sure that’s what it’s going to be for Taker too. Let’s say for instance, somebody that brings in people like that in, as far as wrestling promotions that have a good name…Maryland Championship Wrestling…I did appearances; Shawn {Michaels}, Scott {Hall}, Kevin{Nash} and I did appearances together for them and they kept it separate it was like a little fan fest separate. In that way, if it just so happens that you end up at an appearance connected to an independent promotion that might be less up to snuff product wise. Then you’re not seen as endorsing this show. You’re in and out before the show even starts…”

David Lagana Talks About the Upcoming Jim Crockett Sr. Memorial Cup Tag Team Tournament

“I think the good part about the cup is it’s very much the Stanley Cup and we talk about the 10 lbs of Gold being our version of the Stanley Cup as far as the trophy that everyone wants and the fact that everyone has this warm and fuzzy feeling about a tournament that was maybe good for two straight years shows the power of the prize. Wins and losses are great but ultimately there has to be a prize at the end of the rainbow for these journeys we go on and I am a big believer that there are too many titles in wrestling as everyone knows if you follow me. I think the prizes need to matter and the fact that we’re able to resurrect a cup, and we’re working on getting as close to the original version of the cup as possible because it meant something you know. It really did, here we are talking about it almost 30 years later. And it only happened three times and the fact that we were able to get the Crockett family to sign off and the Crockett foundation does really amazing stuff for wounded warriors in the Charlotte area so that’s why this whole thing worked so well. And to be able to bring back all those legends and to have Jim Cornette and to do it right in the shadows of Charlotte, North Carolina.”

David Lagana Talks About The NWA’s Relationship with Ring of Honor

“We want to bring in as much talent from various of places and create an event that you’re not gonna get anywhere else and our partnership with Ring of Honor obviously fell off of our involvement in All In. We saw what Ring of Honor was able to do from an infrastructure perspective you know as we discussed sort of this one off event, this was a handshake deal to do this one event together. My history with Ring of Honor, there appreciation of what Billy {Corgan}wants to do and that we’re not trying to rule the universe. We’re trying to create good content one show at a time and this is literally our third show and we’ve been very happy with the grass root success of the first two and the fact that we can move forward into a third one that could involve up to 5 different promotions is a really unique prospect.”

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Mickie James Update, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More! (7/17/19)

News Involving: Mickie James, Finn Balor, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More!

News Here! Mickie James Update, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More!

Latest On Jeff Hardy

In Monday’s shuffle I discussed the news on Jeff Hardy’s latest public intoxication arrest. Since then, more details have been released regarding the incident. TMZ is reporting that Hardy smelled of booze and was passed out in a public stairwell before being arrested.

Jason’s Take

Once again, Hardy’s struggles with addiction have been well documented in the past, so I am not going to comment on them. Here is hoping that he is able to get things in order and get his life on track.

RAW Ratings See An Increase

RAW continues to slowly climb out of the ratings hole, as this weeks ratings showed an increase in viewership. The hourly breakdown looks like this:

Hour 1 – 2.379 million viewers
Hour 2 – 2.503 million viewers
Hour 3 – 2.478 million viewers

Jason’s Take

This is good news for WWE, RAW, and USA, as RAW typically has had a hard time keeping viewers into the third hour. RAW was actually a very solid show last night, and one of the first RAW’s in a very long time that I watched from start to finish while it aired live. Slowly, but surely, WWE will do what they can to climb out of the hole.

Mickie James Undergoes ACL Surgery

Earlier today, WWE star Mickie James went under the knife to repair her injured ACL. The injury looks to keep her out of the ring into next year. Her husband, Nick Aldis, took to Twitter to update fans on the successful surgery.

Jason’s Take

Mickie James is still a very talented wrestler who adds depth to the women’s division. There is still a place for her on the roster, and one can assume that the WWE will want to keep her when she fully recovers.

Finn Balor Taking Time Off?

Finn Balor lost the Intercontinental championship at Extreme Rules, and the loss had many scratching their heads. However, it appears there is reasoning behind it according to Pro Wrestling Sheet, as Balor has requested time off from WWE to recharge. Though he requested time off, it appears that it will not be granted until after the upcoming SummerSlam pay per view.

Jason’s Take

It will be interesting to see how Balor will be written off of TV. One could assume a SummerSlam match with Bray Wyatt will lead to his exit. Perhaps on his return, he could join his friends in The Club ?

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.
