RETRIBUTION have a leader! Or do they?

  • Seth Rollins & Murphy defeated Dominik Mysterio & Humberto Carrillo
  • Drew Gulak defeated R-Truth (c) to win the WWE 24-7 Championship

  • MVP (w/ Shelton Benjamin & Bobby Lashley) vs. Mustafa Ali ended in a No Contest
  • Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode defeated Drew McIntyre & The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) in a Six Man Tag Team Match

HOT or NOT

  • Mustafa Ali with a clear push, Leader or Not this is awesome – HOT
  • 24/7 title mix including Drew Gulak – NOT
  • RAW tag team title mix – NOT
  • Hurt Business booking? Heel or Face? – NOT
  • Riott Squad not winning gold – NOT
  • Randy Orton & Drew McIntyre continuation in to Hell in a Cell – HOT

Projection for next week’s WWE RAW

Lets hope for a vast improvement next week and a Draft that brings some much needed freshness especially to this brand. Lets Say that The Street Profits move as champions. Keith Lee moves to Smackdown. We get a scathing/awesome promo from Mustafa Ali as to why he appears to have motives to either lead or join Retribution. RAW has become stale for the time being an needs fresh faces along with new feuds. My main concern is that we just won’t get it. That will be a crying shame.

WWE NXT

Last Wednesday’s NXT Results

  • Tommaso Ciampa defeated KUSHIDA by DQ
  • Drake Maverick & Killian Dain defeated Ever-Rise (Chase Parker & Matt Martel)
  • Austin Theory defeated Leon Ruff
  • Dexter Lumis defeated Austin Theory
  • Ridge Holland defeated Danny Burch
  • Shotzi Blackheart defeated Xia Li
  • Ember Moon & Rhea Ripley defeated Dakota Kai & Raquel González

HOT or NOT

  • Kushida on a roll – HOT
  • Maverick & Dain team/feud is going to be just what both guys need – HOT
  • Austin theory attitude – HOT
  • Return of Lumis – HOT
  • Ridge Holland sidelined – NOT
  • Shotzi Blackheart enjoying every second of her NXT career – HOT
  • Ember Moon/Ripley heading towards a showdown – HOT

Projecting next week’s WWE NXT

It really is hard to knock anything that NXT does. The pacing each week and build of stars is so enjoyable but we must remember that this is what they do so of course it works. With NXT stars not being mentioned in the DRAFT pot then I am unsure of many changes. Ridge Holland being injured in what is a nasty injury could mean a change of direction for a certain feud. November os slowly approaching so lets say a few matches get made for Halloween Havoc including Kushida vs Dream in a rematch, Ember Moon vs Rhea Ripley no 1 contenders match.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown

WWE Smackdown Results

  • Big E defeated Sheamus in a Falls Count Anywhere Match
  • Matt Riddle & Jeff Hardy defeated The Miz & John Morrison
  • Sasha Banks defeated Bayley (c) by DQ. Bayley retains the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
  • Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods defeated Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura (c) to win the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship
  • The Fiend defeated Kevin Owens

Notable WWE Draft Moves

  • Seth Rollins to Smackdown
  • Naomi to RAW
  • Bianca Belair to Smackdown
  • Rey Mysterio & Dominik Mysterio to Smackdown
  • The Miz & John Morrison to RAW
  • Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods to RAW while Big E stays on Smackdown
  • Tucker to Raw while Otis stays on Smackdown

HOT or NOT

  • BIG E vs Sheamus was awesome!!! – HOT
  • Sasha/Bayley feud continuatiin – HOT
  • Spilt up of New Day/New tase champs – NOT
  • Fiend vs KO – HOT

Projecting next week’s WWE Smackdown

Perhaps a slightly underwhelming night 1 of the 2020 WWE Draft. Splitting up The New Day is a bad move in my opinion and Cesaro & Nakamura dropping tag gold was not wise. Seth has been drafted to Smackdown along with his current feud which has lasted 5 months already. Where is the change? Lets hope RAW gets a shake up as I’m left confused. As for the show itself it was great. Sheamus and Big E certainly delivered. Lets say next week we get Sasha vs Bayley announced for HIAC. Otis is now seemingly alone so his value may have dropped considerably not to mention is partner tucker who will now be lost in the shuffle I am afraid to say. Lets have another fire promo from Roman but the Hell in a Cell card will fill out.

So another week passes by and it was underwhelming from both Raw & Smackdown, especially in terms if the draft itself. In ring action has been great but weekly shows need more to make me tune in every week. NXT again has it so right.

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.
