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 (2/19/19)

Start your Tuesday off with commentary on DX in the Hall Of Fame, Lacey Evans, heat for Lio Rush, and more!

Jason shuffles into Tuesday with the Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! Today we take a look at news on DX, Lacey Evans, heat for Lio Rush, and more!

Why Becky Lynch Won The Royal Rumble

Many fans have been questioning why Becky Lynch won the Royal Rumble if the goal was to have Charlotte inserted in to storyline with Ronda Rousey. The current storyline between the three would have made more sense had Charlotte won. Dave Meltzer stated on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon was insistent that Becky Lynch win the Royal Rumble.

Are You Ready?

It was announced earlier today that the first members of the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2019 will be none other than D-Generation X. Xpac, Shawn Michaels, HHH, The New Age Outlaws and Chyna will all be a part of the induction.

Big Plans For Lacey Evans?

Since debuting on the main roster and participating in the Royal Rumble, fans have wondered what creatives plans are for Lacey Evans. According to Dave Meltzer and the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Lacey Evans is in for a gigantic push, and there are many backstage officials that are very high on her.

Lio Rush Has Heat ?

Sunday nights finish to the Intercontinental title match between Finn Balor and Bobby Lashley has people scratching their heads. Perhaps there is reason to the breakup of Lashley and his hype man Lio Rush. According to PWI Insider Elite, Rush has heat backstage.

“It appears as if Lio Rush is done with Bobby Lashley. I can tell you behind the scenes there were not a lot of people surprised at that and not a lot of people surprised that Lio took the pin.”

“There are times Lio has a reputation for rubbing people — including other workers the wrong way. Whether that was being held against him and that was part of the reasoning for him losing or whether it was just a decision to protect Lashley and shift the belt to Finn Balor, I guess we’ll have to see based on how Lio is presented in the weeks and months to come.”

Jason’s Thoughts On Today’s News

DX is getting a well deserved Hall Of Fame Induction, but I have mixed feelings on it. This feels like an easy way out for WWE to have Chyna included into the HOF, rather than have her inducted as an individual. Also, I am probably in the minority on this, but there are others more deserving to be in before DX. I personally would have went with the NWO, but I am a mark for the NWO, so that’s just me.

Lacey Evans has the look, and her mic skills aren’t bad, however, she is green as grass. It will be interesting to see what type of program they come up with for her. A clash with Alexa Bliss perhaps?

More On IMPACT Offer To Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio, and during the broadcast he discussed the offer that IMPACT wrestling made to him a few months ago: (credit to Fightful for the transcription below)

“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar to WWE as far as what I bring to the table. That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince, I want that kind of a deal. When I was starting to talk with Tony (Khan) and New Japan and Impact as well– Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well.”

AEW Double Or Nothing Ticket Sale Notes

Cody Rhodes took to Twitter a few days ago and provided some interesting stats on ticket sales for AEW Double Or Nothing:

Why The Women Didn’t Headline Elimination Chamber

Initially, it was thought that the historic Women’s Tag Team Championship match would headline the Elimination Chamber pay per view, however, according to Fightful, Vince McMahon made the change to swap the match out with the men’s Elimination Chamber match. McMahon felt the women’s match would get the reaction desired to close out the show.

Becky Lynch Re-Injures Knee At Live Event

While it appears to be only in storyline, Becky Lynch appeared to re-injure her knee after attempting to attach Charlotte Flair at a house show Saturday evening.
