Wishing all of our readers a safe and Happy New Years! Let’s get into some wrestling news!
Reports are coming into the office about All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and their possible start of holding House Shows throughout the United States in 2023. Now, an actual touring schedule is unknown at this time. But sources say that former WWE and WCW Star Jeff Jarrett, who is now the Director of Business Development for AEW, is currently working on a live touring schedule which may start off, as a limited schedule to see how fan attendance goes. We will keep you updated.
Staying with AEW, just recently their owner Tony Khan, appeared on the Fightful’s Grapsody Podcast, to address a lingering issue within AEW and that was underutilized talent. Tony went on to say that, “Due to limited TV time, you’re never going to keep everyone happy. You have people that are going to be a focus week to week.” Now, with that being said, I do feel they do a major injustice to the talent on the roster, when they have such a large talent roster to start with. Maybe, thin out the current roster to be able to focus on providing individual talent with storylines and TV time. Just my opinion!
So, a couple of weeks ago, we discussed a possible match between World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Rock, at next year’s WrestleMania 39 Live Event. But rumors are floating around that Cody Rhodes could be possibly chosen to go against Roman Reigns. Now, these are rumors that are currently being reported, but who do you think should face off against Roman Reigns at next year’s WrestleMania?
The Question of the Week comes from David M. in Jamaica, Queens and he asked, “What are your thoughts about the whole Mandy Rose situation?” David, I have to say this. For fans who do not know about the situation, Mandy Rose was released on December 14, when the company found out about the type of content she was posting to one of her social media pages. Now, if the WWE wants to have exclusive control on the use of their talent, then all WWE Superstars should be paid a decent amount, to compensate for anything they may lose out on, while being employed with the WWE. Some talents are not compensated well, and seek other avenues to make extra income. Thank you for your question.
