Kylie Rae Granted AEW Release
One of the bigger hires that All Elite Wrestling had made for it’s women’s division was Kylie Rae. During the All-Out post show, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that Rae asked for and was granted her released from the company. There had been rumors from Meltzer that Rae was dealing with some type of undisclosed medical issue.
Rae looked like she was going to be the face of the AEW women’s division. Hopefully there isn’t something serious that caused her to ask for her release.

AEW appears to be taking the approach of airing a pay per view roughly every two months. This feels like a smart idea as it will give the company the ability to build storylines for more meaningful matches at its pay per views.

The PWI 500 has always had a special place in my heart. It is where I would find out about wrestlers on the indie scene that I have never heard of, and international stars I was never aware of. Congrats to Rollins on topping this list.
Enzo And Cass Returning ?
On Friday, Dave Meltzer had reported that Big Cass and Enzo would possibly be returning to WWE as part of the NXT brand. Since then, both WWE, and HHH have denied any interest in bringing the two back. During an interview with TalkSport, HHH would say:
“I immediately then had our PR go like, ‘yeah, no, zero interest’” HHH told McCarthy, after being quizzed on the speculation.I have 104, or 110 talent depending on the moment at the Performance Center in the U.S., another 45 – 50 here [in the U.K.] plus some development stuff around the world. I’m not worried [about filling a two hour show every week]. The interesting thing about today’s world is, if you call up someone willing to believe anything, you can tell them anything you want in order to try and drum up business for yourself. Congratulations to Enzo, I’m sure spreading rumors has worked well for him. I just don’t want any part of it.”
Well, could HHH put it any more bluntly ?
