A little bit of the AEW information bubbly!

Joey Janela Takes Shot at Dash Wilder and WWE’s Saudi Situation

I’m sure everyone’s well aware of the situation that arose in Saudi Arabia between WWE and the Saudi Royal Family. I don’t think we’ll ever know what actually happened, but it’s been telling that NO ONE from AEW management took any shots or made any comments about the situation…but that didn’t stop Joey Janela from doing it.

It started simply enough, Janela posted a pic of him at UFC 244, when a fan asked him to start an angle with WWE’s Dash Wilder of the Revival. Janela asked which one that was so he could say hello to him and was told that Wilder was the one with the nice booty. Janela made a comment about checking for tennis racket marks, a shot at Jim Cornette, who is a huge Revival fan and a harsh critic of AEW and Janela. Wilder somehow heard about this and took his own shot at Janela and Janela’s past issues with Enzo Amore. Offended, Janela replied that he’d offered him a White Claw as a friendly gesture and Wilder had been rude, then said that it was a shame that they (WWE) hadn’t been stuck in Saudi Arabia for another 3 days.

At this point, cooler heads, namely Cody Rhodes, intervened and tried to calm things down, but Janela refused. However, I should point out that the thread ended after that.

Chris Jericho Challenges Tanahashi to a Match at WrestleKingdom

Today, during New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Kings of Pro Wrestling show, a vignette aired of Chris Jericho as the Painmaker, challenging the Ace to a match at NJPW’s biggest event of the year, WrestleKingdom on January 5. The Painmaker vowed that this would be the Ace’s final match, but time will tell.

Jon Moxley Challenges Suzuki Minoru at WrestleKingdom

Okay, this one is kinda old news, but I cannot remember if this was ever posted or reported and it was brought up with the Jericho/Tanahashi announcement. Yes, Jon Moxley, the baddest, sickest, SOB in AEW has challenged the nastiest, meanest, sickest SOB in New Japan Pro Wrestling to a match. A lot of fans are hoping this will happen at WrestleKingdom, but there’s been no real announcement.

The Merchandise War Gets Weird

As I noted last week, JR has engaged in a war of words and merchandise with WWE’s Seth Rollins over Rollins’ comments about AEW and Kenny Omega. Well, just to make this whole thing weirder, Pro Wrestling tees released three new t-shirt designs for Good Ol’ JR, one was an ugly Christmas sweater design, and two were BLATANT ripoffs of Seth Rollins’ merchandise. One said ‘Grill Slayer’, clearly a play on Rollins’ King/Beast Slayer gimmick and one that said Jim F’n Ross, much like Rollins’ design/gimmick from a few years ago.

Bea Priestley Says Goodbye to World of Stardom Wrestling

On Saturday, Bea Priestley lost her World of Stardom Championship belt to Mayu Iwatani and tweeted off what seems to be a farewell to World of Stardom and wishing Iwatani luck as champion. Priestley has been part of AEW from pretty early on, but needed to finish up her run in World of Stardom before committing to AEW, which is what seems to be happening.

Secondary Title Coming to AEW in December

Cody Rhodes was doing a press call ahead of Full Gear and was asked about a mid-card title. Cody’s reply was that he hated the term ‘mid-card title’ for personal reasons and that he didn’t want the talent to feel that what they’re doing is ‘mid-card’. However, they will be introducing a new ‘prize’ (his words, not mine) for talent coming up through the ranks.

Ranking System Coming to AEW Every Friday

In the same press call, Cody said that AEW would be posting a ranking system every Friday. It will be the top five superstars for each title. He also encouraged fans to ‘Internet the hell out of him’ if he forgot.

Adam Cole Celebrates Britt Baker’s Promo

I’ve said before that I’m a huge Britt Baker fan, but it seemed like a lot of people were sleeping on her. On Wednesday, Baker cut the promo of her career, so far, on rival Bea Priestley, and became the talk of the wrestling world. However, no one was more impressed with Baker’s promo than her fiancee, Adam Cole of NXT. Baker’s reply was that she learned from the best (Cole).

Big Swole Signed to AEW

Well, it looks like AEW has added another promising star to their Women’s Division. Big Swole, who debuted in a losing tag team effort with Mercedes Martinez, has been signed to AEW. She is currently the Phoenix champion on RISE and a tag champion on SHINE and it’s not clear if she will be wrapping up her time there before making her LIVE debut or if something will be worked out between the three companies.

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.
