News here! Shield To Team Up? Ronda Rousey, Chyna, Sasha, and More!

The Shield To Team Up One Last Time

Dean Ambrose has a few dates left on his WWE contract, and  his last appearances look like they will be tag team matches as part of The Shield. WWE has announced that it will air the April 21st event live on the WWE Network. The event will air on Sunday night at 9:30 PM EST.

Jason’s Take

This is a great way for WWE to increase network subscriptions. Many fans have been speculating what the next move will be for Ambrose. Will he take some time off and return to WWE in the future? Or, will he make the jump to AEW? Time will tell, but honestly I feel he is burned out from wrestling.

Ronda Rousey On Impregnation Vacation

Ronda Rousey looks to be taking a vacation from WWE for some time. She has dubbed her time away as an impregnation vacation on her Instagram account. The Wrestling Observer had reported earlier this year that Rousey would leave WWE in order to focus on starting a family. It looks like the Wrestling Observer was correct.

Jason’s Take

Kudos to Ronda to want to step away in order to start a family. Hopefully fans can accept this and give her some privacy.

Chyna Memorial Battle Royal?

During the Hall Of Fame induction of DX, X-Pac made the comment that the Women’s Battle Royal at WrestleMania should be renamed the Chyna Memorial Battle Royal. During his recent 1,2,360 Podcast, he elaborated further on the idea of the name change.

“I did mention something before we went out, I asked a question. I said, ‘Has anyone talked about that,’” Waltman said on renaming the battle royal after Chyna. “And someone said, ‘no, no one’s ever brought it up’ and I am like ‘well I am.’… I read people going ‘oh, I am disappointed that they didn’t turn it into the Chyna Battle Royal like the next day.’ I said it the night before. Can you at least wait till next year to b*** about it? If they don’t do it next year, I can see people complaining about it. But God, can you at least give them one year?”

“I had no doubts about this but I know a lot of people did. I knew that she would be honored properly, and she was. I just thought it was really nice for her and that she’d be extremely happy with all of that. I know her as well as anyone, and it felt like she was there.”

Jason’s Take

No thanks. The WWE came under fire for initially having the yearly WrestleMania women’s battle royal named after the Fabulous Moolah, so I don’t see them renaming it after Chyna. While Chyna’s contribution to the business cannot be denied, neither can her storied past. Though the WWE does seem to prop up deceased wrestlers the company has had issues with in the past.

Another Sasha Banks Update

Many fans have been following the drama regarding Sasha Banks reportedly threatening to quit the WWE. Sasha has been mostly quiet on her social media accounts as of late, but did happen to re-tweet a tweet from Bayley. Bayley’s tweet is a scene from the movie the Lion King, and fans are speculating that this scene would mean that Bayley and Sasha are going to be sticking with the rest of the 4 Horsewomen, and staying with WWE.

Chairshot News Report: TNA Impact Results, AEW Speculation For Ricochet & Shane McMahon, Vince McMahon, More!

Your Wrestling News for July 5, 2024, including TNA Impact, Ricochet, Shane McMahon, his daddy Vince, and more!

WWE Ricochet AEW

Your Wrestling News for July 5, 2024, including TNA Impact, Ricochet, Shane McMahon, his daddy Vince, and more!

Welcome to your daily dose of pro wrestling news–and analysis you can trust! We take all wrestling news with a grain of salt here at The Chairshot, and we hope to steer you in the right direction.

Results: TNA Impact (July 4, 2024)

Here are your results from Thursday night’s edition of TNA Impact (originally taped on June 28 at the 2300 Arena in Philly):

  • Trey Miguel vs. Leon Slater ends in a no-contest after WWE NXT star Charlie Dempsey attacks everyone.
  • Dani Luna battled Jody Threat to a time limit draw in the 10-Minute Challenge. They were granted the customary “5 more minutes” but were attacked by Alisha Edwards & Masha Slamovich. During the match it was revealed that Nic Nemeth had been attacked backstage.
  • Frankie Kazarian defeated Mike Santana by countout to advance to the TNA World Championship Match at Slammiversary.
  • Matt Hardy & Reby Hardy beat Eddie Edwards & Alisha Edwards.
  • Joe Hendry pinned Jake Something to advance to the TNA World Championship Match at Slammiversary.

No surprise that Joe Hendry advanced to the world title match, but Santana-Kazarian could have gone either way. A promo video to end the show implied that Kazarian was the one who took out Nic Nemeth backstage, seemingly creating a story for them within the Slammiversary title match. No shocker that The Hardys won the tag team match, but a great surprise with Charlie Dempsey getting involved in the opener. That TNA/NXT collaboration continues to be a lot of fun.

You can catch Andrew’s Review of the event here.

Ricochet Expected To Sign With AEW

Many outlets are reporting that Ricochet’s expected landing spot remains AEW, with additional reports surfacing that his agent has been working out the details on his behalf.

Personally, I’d rather see him back in WWE. Even after an initial push in AEW, he will be a novelty act much like PAC, so I don’t see the difference. But if he’s going to AEW, here’s hoping that agent does a great job and secures quite the bag for ol’ Ric.

Vince Russo Suggests Shane McMahon As A Front Man For Vince McMahon to Purchase AEW

”We saw this with WCW, it happened before. It (purchasing AEW) could be under the guise of Shane, that’s what I’m saying. Shane is as clean as whistle. Vince could be behind it without anybody knowing it, bro.”

Those are the words of Vince Russo, who on the surface seems to be spouting nonsense. Time will tell if there is something to it all, but I wouldn’t place any wagers on this one. Shane McMahon to AEW would be an entertaining shocker, but that–like many things in AEW–would quickly wear off.

Shawn Michaels Discusses NXT Releases, Referencing Drew Gulak

During the NXT Heatwave media call, Shawn Michaels was asked about the release of Gable Steveson, but also lumped Drew Gulak in his response about main roster viability:

“From my understanding, nothing on anyone’s part other than contracts being up. Certainly, in the place of Drew Gulak. From a company standpoint, there not being anything from a main roster standpoint that they were going to be using him in. In NXT, over the last year and a half to two years, we’ve been trying to get into the process of keeping it fluid. It’s all about getting to the main roster when everything is said and done. In two or three years, if that doesn’t happen, we bring other people in or see if we’re ready to move on.”

If anything, it’s a stark reminder that NXT still exists to, above all else, populate the main roster. It’s quite the delicate balance between booking your own television show and preparing for the future, one that HBK has arguably done better than Triple H himself.

Other Odds & Ends:

  • According to reports, the mini-stroke referenced by Britt Baker (DMD) on AEW Dynamite is legitimate. If so, both she and Adam Cole have been through a ton over the past 24 months.
  • Mason Madden (Mace) and Mansoor, now known as the MxM Collection, showed up in ROH when featured in a vignette on this week’s broadcast. They might not have made it in WWE, but it’s good to see them getting work, and a second chance to make this gimmick their own. YEAH!
  • Cody Rhodes continues to be the ultimate good dude, this time helping a fan who won tickets to Money In The Bank actually attend the event. The fan who won the tickets is in a wheelchair, and there were no more accessible seats left. That was, of course, until Cody got involved. Now the fan can be there and enjoy the show as intended when he won the contest. Cody wins again!

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

What a start to the tournament!

Published

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.
