AEW Updates & More
Welcome to another week of wrestling news. Like we always say, let’s dive right in!
Coming off, their March 5, 2023, Pay Per View “Revolution,” AEW World Champion MJF got himself into some trouble involving a fan at the show. During the show, MJF took a drink from a fan, and then threw the drink at a child who was in the audience. After the show, AEW Owner Tony Khan stated that he had a serious conversation with MJF about the incident, as he was majorly unhappy with MJF’s actions. AEW Community Outreach Team responded to the incident at the show and invited the young child backstage after the show.
Staying with AEW, we have an update on Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler (FTR) contract with the company. The tag team did appear in this past weekend’s Revolution PPV, making a surprise attack on the current Tag Team Champions, The Gunns. It appears the FTR has a long-term contract with AEW and that their contracts are not scheduled to expire this coming April 2023, as previously mentioned by Dax Harwood. So, we will see more of FTR in the coming months.
As you all may be aware, we are definitely on the road to WrestleMania, with just four weeks left. But the WWE has yet to announce who will be inducted in to the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame has been a tradition in every WrestleMania for the last 20 years. Now, like I said, with four weeks left until the WrestleMania, many are left wondering who will be inducted. If you have any idea who it will be, please shoot us an email and let us know.
Major League Wrestling (MLW) has announced that former WWE Superstar and current MLW Openweight Champion John Hennigan will be defending his title against former MLW Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu at the MLW PPV “War Chamber” on April 6, 2023. This event will take place in the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.
The Question of the Week comes from Jeff H. in Rockaway Beach, and he said, “I heard that Brock Lesnar is retiring this year. I wanted to know if this was true?” Hey, Jeff, from what I’m hearing and what’s being circulated, Brock Lesnar will be retiring after this year’s WrestleMania, as his contract with the WWE is expiring this April. Reports are that the WWE has offered Brock a new contract, but he has refused any offers. So, we might be seeing the last of Brock Lesnar in the WWE and in pro wrestling.
