Start your week off with news involving WrestleMania 37, Women’s Money In The Bank, AEW/WCW and More!

WrestleMania 37 Location Rumor

While we know that WrestleMania 36 will be occurring in Florida in 2020, it appears that Los Angeles will be the host of WrestleMania 37. Dave Meltzer noted in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE wants to have the show of shows at the new Hollywood Park for WrestleMania 38, however, the city wants to host WrestleMania 37 as part of a trial run before hosting the 2022 Super Bowl. The stadium reportedly cant host 100,000 people for a wrestling event, so it would break an attendance record.

Jason’s Take

I am personally still waiting for US Bank Stadium in Minnesota to host WrestleMania. Looks like I am going to have to continue to wait.

Big Match Announced For SmackDown Live

WWE has announced a big match for this Tuesday’s edition of SmackDown Live. Becky Lynch will take on Bayley in a non-title match. The match is being advertised as the first match in WWE between the two, however, they have face each other in NXT in the past. Both women took to Twitter this weekend with a bit of trash talk.

Jason’s Take

This should be a great match between the two fan favorites. This has the potential to lead to a great feud, and a pay per view match up in the future.

Real Life Heat Between Women In WWE?

The Tweet in the previous news entry reportedly is a response by Bayley to an Alexa Bliss Tweet regarding quitting Twttier. Alexa responded, without tagging Bayley, and made reference to the real life issue Sasha and Bayley had with losing the Women’s’ Tag Team Chanpionship at WrestleMania 35.

Jason’s Take

The Tweet apparently is referring to the way both Banks and Bayley acted both after losing at WrestleMania, and the team being split up on RAW the following week. I am not a Banks fan, as many of you have probably been able to tell in recent news shuffles, and I am really starting to sour on Bayley. You are in a business where you get paid to lose. It feels like some wrestlers take their gimmicks too seriously.

Women’s Money In The Bank Participants Revealed

According to a local Hartford, CT ad, the Women’s Money In The Bank participants may have been revealed. One of the interesting names shown on the graphic includes Sasha Banks.

Jason’s Take

This is an eclectic list of women for the MITB match. Well the talent is stacked, I am a little surprised to not see Mandy Rose, Charlotte, or Alexa Bliss involved in the match. I am wondering if Alexa Bliss and her previous injuries are keeping her from this match.

AEW Using WCW Pay Per View Names?

Recently, Cody Rhodes and AEW filed for trademarks of long time WCW pay per view names, including Bash At The Beach, Bunkhouse Stampede, and Battlebowl. Former WCW announcers and commentator, Tony Schiavone, recently did an interview with Fightful and talked about the possibility of AEW using WCW pay per view names.

“I don’t know much about trademark law. I guess they just didn’t think it was important. With the nostalgia that Cody feels for his dad and the fact that he could have a Bash at the Beach or Bunkhouse Stampede and it would mean something — I think that would help them out a great deal. I’m excited about his business plan and the Young Bucks and Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega and all the guys and Tony Khan leading the way. That’s going to be some good stuff, man. It’s a pretty good business plan. There are names that we all remember for good or for bad. I know all Bash at the Beaches weren’t great, all Bunkhouse Stampedes weren’t great, but they’re still iconic names that fans remember.”

Jason’s Take

I am a longtime WCW fan, and often I feel that history has forgotten about some of the companies events. However, is AEW really changing wrestling be revisiting the past of a failed company? While we all get the warm, and fuzzy feeling when WCW is re-visited, I think it’s best for the long term vision of AEW to do something new and different, rather than revisiting the past.

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

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.
