Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle (2/4/2019)

Start your week off with comments on an AEW TV Deal, Becky Lynch Injury, and The Elimination Chamber Match!



WWE Elimination Chamber Fifth Pod

Jason shuffles in to the new week with today’s Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! A look at an AEW TV Deal, Becky Lynch Injury, and The Elimination Chamber Match!

All Elite Wrestling TV Deal?

As if I haven’t given you enough AEW news the past few days, I am about to give you more. According to Dave Meltzer in his latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, AEW has two major television options on the table. Meltzer said that the deal would be bigger than the deal Spike had with IMPACT, and potentially bigger than any non WWE-TV deal since WCW had with Turner in 2001. It’s unlikely that any TV deal will be announced at the Thursday Double Or Nothing ticket party.

Miz vs Shane McMahon at WrestleMania ?

Justin Barrasso from Sports Illustrated has reported on the rumored plans for Miz and Shane McMahon at WrestleMania, and it appears that the current SmackDown tag team champions will be facing each other at the biggest show of the year. This would have to indicate that they would turn each other to set up a match at WrestleMania.

Becky Lynch Dealing With Injury ?

The Man is set for a prime sport, if not the main event, at WrestleMania. But she may potentially be dealing with an injury. Lynch AJ did not appear at live events this weekend. Lynch reportedly is dealing with a left knee injury. Reportedly she was wearing a knee brace at last week’s Raw and SmackDown Live and at last weekends house show events.

Two More Teams Added To Elimination Chamber Match

Two more teams have been added to Women’s Tag Team Championship Elimination Chamber match. The IIconics and Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville from SmackDown Live have been added to the match. An interesting note to their additions is unlike the teams from RAW, they did not have to win qualifying matches in order to compete in the match. Another team will be added to that match Monday during RAW as the Boss N Hug Connection will take on the team of Alicia Fox and Nikki Cross.

Intercontinental Title Match On RAW

WWE has announced that there will be an Intercontinental Championship match on RAW as Bobby Lashley will defend the title agsinst Finn Balor. The match is the result of last week with Lashley attacking Lawler and laying Balor out in the middle of the ring.

Jason’s Thoughts On Today’s News

I’ve said before in the past that All Elite will need a television deal to succeed. Many networks have been rumored to be in the running including AXS, Paramount, WGN and Turner. I would love to see AEW end up on Turner. As a long time wrestling fan, the nostalgic feel of wrestling on TBS or TNT again would be amazing. Cody Rhodes probably knows better than any of us what professional wrestling meant to TBS in the past. Don’t expect the company to air on a night that would compete with WWE, or for it to air live, at least not in the beginning.

Shane McMahon is always good for an amazing WrestleMania moment and the Miz has to be one of the most consistent, underappreciated superstar on the roster today, if not in the history of the WWE. This match would have the potential to steal the show, and be a potential match of the year candidate.

The Elimination Chamber match is shaping up to be a good one. The WWE could have the exact opposite of what they have with men; an actual tag team division. The women’s roster is deep, as are the current tag teams on the roster. The favorites have to be Bayley and Sashsa, however, I could see a rift happening between the two, leading to a WrestleMania match, the match that was long rumored for this past SummerSlam.

Mitchell’s AEW Continental Classic Update! (11/27/23)

What a start to the tournament!



Did your picks win points?

The AEW Continental Classic is underway, with almost everyone competing. Check in here if you haven’t seen the winners and losers of week 1!

Here are your Gold League standings!

  • Jon Moxley: 1-0, 3 points
  • Swerve Strickland: 1-0, 3 points
  • Jay White: 1-0, 3 points
  • Rush: 0-1, 0 points
  • Mark Briscoe: 0-1, 0 points.
  • Jay Lethal: 0-1, 0 points


Here are your Blue League standings!

  • Brody King: 1-0, 3 points
  • Claudio Castagnoli: 1-0, 3 points
  • Daniel Garcia: 0-1, 0 points
  • Eddie Kingston: 0-1, 0 points
  • Bryan Danielson: Yet to Compete
  • Andrade El Idolo: Yet to Compete


My Thoughts:

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.

Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.

In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
