Get caught up to speed with the latest news on Woods, Orton, AEW Ratings And More!

Xavier Woods Injured

During a live event Monday in Australia, many outlets were reporting that Xavier Woods was injured while working in a tag team match against The Revival. On Twitter, Woods confirmed that he is indeed injured. While an official statement on the exact injury and recovery timetable has yet to be released, Dave Meltzer is reporting that the chatter backstage is the injury is an Achilles tear that will require a significant amount of recovery.

Jason’s Take

Long term, it will be interesting to see what WWE does with The New Day now with the injury to Woods. Will we see the group split up ?

Cody Rhodes On AEW Ratings

AEW has been fairly successful in drawing ratings its first three weeks on TNT. Some have been critical in the loss of viewers each week, including Vince Russo. Cody Rhodes took to Twitter to discuss AEW’s ratings.

Jason’s Take

I’ve been pleasantly surprised with AEW so far. It’s a change of pace from WWE programing. Did Vince Russo expect they were going to draw 5 million people a week ?

Randy Orton To AEW ?

Randy Orton has the whole wrestling world all work up due to a post on his Instagram account. Orton posteda picture of himself near a sign that stated “Elite Level.” This would lead to Chris Jericho responding as well.

Jason’s Take

Picturing Randy Orton in AEW just feels weird to me. I’ve always been of the opinion that Orton would be a lifer in WWE. However, with wrestling, anything is possible. This isn’t the first time Orton has posted anything in relation to AEW, so either he is stirring the pot, or has legit interest in jumping ship.

Shane McMahon To Return To WWE TV ?

During the first episode of SmackDown on FOX, Shane McMahon lost a lose leaves WWE match to Kevin Owens. Since then, it had been reported that Shane McMahon would no longer appear on WWE TV moving forward. During his Q&A portion of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer had the following to say on McMahon’s status:

“He’s got nothing right now. You’re never gone. It appears that he is not going to be on TV for a while.”

Jason’s Take

Once again, its hard to say never in pro wrestling. I wouldn’t be surprised if McMahon returns to WWE TV at some point.

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.
