Get caught up to speed with the latest news on NXT To USA, AEW Tapings, Tony Schiavone and More!

NXT To USA Details

NXT moving to USA on Wednesday nights is now official. WWE announced the move today. With that announcement, further details about the move have been revealed.NXT will air it’s first two hour show on the USA Network on September 18th at 7pm CST. According to an email sent out to WWE Network subscribers, the latest weekly NXT episodes will air Thursday nights at 7pm CST. Also, the show will continue to run from Full Sail University, rather than taking the live TV tapings on the road.

Jason’s Take

I’ve looked at quite a comments on the Chairshot Facebook page, and a lot of you appear to be unhappy with the move. The move is going to be nothing but positive for all involved. NXT is not one of the highest rated WWE Network shows, so the move isn’t going to adversely affect Network subscribers. The guys and gals of NXT are now going to be part of a global platform in front of a live audience, which will allow them to grow as wrestlers. It should make the transition for a main roster callup seamless. Regarding comments that AEW isn’t trying to compete with WWE, and WWE is picking on the little guy; What do you expect? All of the Being The Elite videos that mocked WWE and HHH, the knocking of Bayley, Cody Rhodes smashing a throne with a sledge hammer at Double Or Nothing. They brought this one on themselves. Regardless, Wednesday nights are going to be a blast for wrestling fans as we enter the end of summer.

More AEW On TNT Locations Revealed

Speaking of AEW, the company has announced locations for its October 23rd and October 30th episodes of AEW On TNT. The October 23rd episode will take place in Pittsburgh, PA at the Petersen Events Center. The October 30th episode will take place in Charleston Coliseum in Charleston, WV. Tickets for both of these shows will go on sale Friday, August 23rd.

Jason’s Take

AEW has had an impressive streak with its first few announced shows being sellouts. Can they continue the streak for the entire month of October ?

Tony Schiavone Signs With AEW

One of the names people remember on commentary during the Monday Night Wars is Tony Schiavone. Reportedly, Shiavone has signed on with AEW. According to The Wrestling Observer, Schiavone will also remain with MLW, and WWE had initially reached out to him as well

Jason’s Take

When I watched Double Or Nothing, I wasn’t overly impressed with the commentary team. My thought is that they are bringing Schiavone in to work together with JR on commentary. They obviously worked together in the past, so there will be some chemistry between the two.

SmackDown Women’s Title Match At The Clash

As seen on this weeks episode of SmackDown Live, Bayley accepted a challenge from Charlotte Flair during A Moment Of Bliss segment. The SmackDown Women’s championship match has been made official for Clash Of Champions.

Jason’s Take

This should be a gem of a match for the upcoming pay per view.

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.
