Get caught up to speed with the latest news on Bischoff, TNA, Kenny Omega And More!

Latest On Eric Bischoff

Last week in the shuffle, I discussed the news of the removal of Eric Bischoff from the Executive Director of SmackDown role. At the time, many were surprised with the firing. Jim Ross recently state on his podcast that he was suprised he was let go so early in his tenure, but feels the situation is that the Executive Director position is like sitting on a hot stove because there is so much pressure to keep FOX happy.

Dave Meltzer would state that a WWE official told him:

“Eric had absolutely no vision, and once we were headed into FOX, everything was falling through the cracks, He messed up multiple times with FOX. Eric also had no stamina for the rigors of the job.”

Jason’s Take

Bischoff probably is out of touch with the current product, but I am surprised he was let go so quickly. Based on reports, I didn’t think his role would be part of creative, but that he would be working more with FOX executives.

NXT Star Done With Company ?

Earlier this year, it was reported that Kacy Cantanzaro was dealing with a back injury that was keeping her off of NXT TV. It currently looks like Cantanzaro may be finished with the company as her profile has been pulled from

Jason’s Take

Kacy Cantanzaro is most likely done with the company, but I am sure she will land on her feet as she is a very talented wrestler. Let the Kacy Cantanzaro to AEW rumors begin ?

TNA Returning ?

It appears that the TNA name be returning to Impact for one night only according the Twitter account of Ethan Page.

Jason’s Take

Does anyone really miss the TNA name? I mean, seriously ?

Kenny Omega Wins AAA Mega Championship

Saturday night at AAA Heroes Inmortales, Kenny Omega defeated Rey Fenix to become the AAA Mega champion. No news as to if the AAA championship will be making its way to AEW television.

Jason’s Take

It would make more sense for AEW to keep the AAA Mega championship off TV to focus more on building their own championships, and not diluting the value of them.

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.
