Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Jim Ross to AEW, HOF Legacy Inductees, RVD To Impact and more! (4/4/19)

News Here! Jim Ross to AEW, HOF Legacy Inductees, RVD To Impact and more!



News Here! Commentary on Jim Ross to AEW, HOF Legacy Inductees, RVD To Impact and more!

Jim Ross Signs With AEW

It’s been rumored forever, and you have seen me add multiple new shuffle entries with the possibility of Jim Ross joining AEW. Today it was made official as Jim Ross officially signed with AEW in what is being reported as the most lucrative deal in commentary history.

Jason’s Take

I’ve commented many times on this, but what the hell, once more wont hurt. This is a good signing for the company. Ross is a recognized voice, and he will be someone that will benefit the company when it comes time for the rumored weekly television. Ross has pretty much been in every role in the business, so he should be able to provide the company with advice, and help the vision grow. But, on the other hand, what is the company changing by bringing in an old WWE announcer ?

Uso’s Re-sign With WWE

One tag team won’t be joining Jim Ross in AEW as the Uso’s have re-signed with the WWE according to PWInsider. It is rumored to be a 5 year deal and substantial pay raise. The Uso’s have long been rumored to  be making the jump to AEW.

Jason’s Take

The Uso’s have long been a part of the WWE’s tag team division, so the re-signing makes sense. However, I would have been curious to see what a Young Bucks vs Uso’s match would have been like.


During an interview with The Sporting News today, Rob Van Dam announced that he has signed a deal that will see him make his return to IMPACT.

Jason’s Take

I don’t see RVD having a giant role within the company, however he is still a popular name in the business and helps bring a few more viewers (hopefully) over to IMPACT.

Legacy Inductees For Hall Of Fame Revealed?

One of the biggest moments of WrestleMania weekend is the Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. A few years ago, the WWE began what they have called their Legacy Award Inductees. WrestleVotes Twitter account has revealed some of the names that will be a part of the group.

Jason’s Take

I’ve never understood the difference between the legacy award winners/inductees and the actual hall of fame inductees. But, the names listed deserve an actual induction in the hall of fame. You can make the valid argument for each one of the wrestlers listed as to why. I’m a little disappointed by this.

Rey Mysterio Injury Update

In yesterday’s news shuffle, I commented on the recent ankle injury that Rey suffered on RAW. As an update, it does appear that the injury is legit, and there is uncertainty regarding his match with Samoa Joe at WreslteMania.

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.
