News here! Kingston Responds To Haters, Undertaker Re-Signs, Latest On Sasha Banks and More!


Kofi Kingston Responds To Superstar Billy Graham

WWE Hall Of Famer and former WWWF Champions Superstar Billy Graham has been very critical in regards to the WWE making Kofi Kingston World Champion, going as far to say that Kingston should take steroids in order to build his frame. Kingston did an interview with Newsweek recently and indirectly responding not only to Graham but other detractors as well.

“I’ve heard a few things through the grapevine. Honestly, I haven’t seen them myself. People can say whatever they want. But as long as they turn on the television, they will see me as champion.

That’s really all that matters. And I don’t have a comment about people’s opinions. People are entitled to their own opinion as far as what a WWE Champion should be, but the fact is that I am WWE Champion and that’s a fact. It is what it is.”

Jason’s Take

Superstar’s influence on the business can’t be understated, however I have always felt he is a lot like Bret Hart in interviews where he comes off as a bitter old man whom the wrestling business has seemed to pass by. He is someone that has so much he can offer to up-and-coming superstars but chooses not to do so.

Latest On Sasha Banks

Last week in the news shuffle, I discussed the news that Sasha Banks threatened to quit WWE after her tag team loss at WrestleMania. Chairshot writer Rob B also gave his breakdown of the situation and it is a recommended read. Check it out here. Dave Meltzer provided a complete breakdown of where things are currently at with Banks.

“Sasha and Bayley I think in their minds they were like, ‘We’re gonna make these belts something.’ So the Sasha Banks thing — and a lot of people are gonna rip on her for this — but it reminds me so much whether it’s Bret or Ric Flair or you know any of the… I know so many people when it comes to the championships it’s like ‘oh it’s a prop and you take it too seriously,’ but that’s why it works. Whenever [Sasha Banks] wins a title they take it from her immediately, she never gets the long reign. Her and Bayley it was almost like when they created the tag team titles it was kinda like ‘we’ll give it to them because our top women are like Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Ronda. Really when Ronda came it was like Ronda’s division and then Becky got over and before then it was sorta like Sasha and Charlotte who were the stars and Charlotte stayed up there, but Sasha didn’t.”

Jason’s Take

I was speaking with a long-time Chairshot reader this week, and we came to the conclusion that at times it is really hard to like Sasha Banks. She comes off both in and out of the ring as difficult to be around and difficult to work with. Now, in her defense, we only hear what is reported, which with Dave Meltzer, who actually knows how much is true.

Ronda Rousey Injury Update

As we know, Ronda Rousey was injured in the main event of WrestleMania 35, suffering a broken hand. According to, Rousey will undergo surgery on her hand on Tuesday. Also, Fightful has an article up breaking down all the current injuries in the world of professional wrestling and the timetables on  their returns, which you can check out here.

Undertaker Re-Signs With WWE

WWE did not have an appearance by the Undertaker at WrestleMania, marking the first time in a long time that the Undertaker hasn’t appeared at his show. Undertaker did however appear on RAW the following night to interrupt the musical performance of Elias. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the Undertaker has re-signed with WWE. This looks like it will affect one of the upcoming outside appearances Undertaker has later this month, as he canceled a Q&A session at Inside The Ropes in England. He is still scheduled to appear at the upcoming Starrcast II.

Jason’s Take

I have always stated that the Undertaker appearing as part of a Q&A, shoot interview, or podcast would be amazing material. Taker has worked with so many of the industries’ top stars and has long been a locker room general in WWE. I would gladly pay for a book from the man as well.

Shinsuke Nakamura Update

Last last year, there were rumors making the rounds that Nakamura could make the jump to AEW or NJPW. A fan asked Dave Meltzer on Twitter if Nakamura planned on leaving or staying with the WWE:

Jason’s Take

WWE must have given Nakamura a generous offer. I really had thought that he would make the jump back to Japan.

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.
