What’s going on, Wrestle Talk Fans?! Welcome to another week of pro wrestling news. So much to talk about, so let’s dive right in!
Congrats to the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler! They won the title in a fatal four-way match on the May 29, 2023 episode of WWE RAW. This makes me very happy, as I am a big fan of both of them. I hope that the WWE keeps this storyline going, as both Ronda and Shayna are an excellent tag team and will bring more credibility to the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
For quite a while now, I have been hearing rumors on and off that All Elite Wrestling (AEW) should bring back the L.A.X. Faction. During its last run, it had Santana, Ortiz, Konnan and Dismante as its members. The original members were Homicide and Hernandez. Fans of the legendary L.A.X. would definitely love to see it happen as the faction was legendary. The minute you heard their theme song, fans jumped out of their seats.
So, it’s official. AEW will debut their new television show “Collision” on Saturday, June 17, 2023 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The debut show will finally feature the return of CM Punk. Other stars scheduled to appear on the show are Samoa Joe, The House Black, Thunder Rosa and FTR. I, for one, am very excited for the return of CM Punk, and I can’t wait to see how his story develops.
AEW has recently announced that their August 27, 2023 “All In” show, that is scheduled to take place at the Wembley Stadium in London, has already sold over 65,000 tickets! Factor in that they haven’t yet announced an official card of matches, that alone is amazing news! This will be AEW’s debut in the United Kingdom, and the stadium still has roughly over 7,000 tickets left to be sold. At this rate, the show is on its way to selling out.
The question of the week comes from Carlos H. in Rockaway Park, and he said, “I recently saw a video on YouTube regarding wardrobe malfunctions that have happened in the WWE. Do the fans watching live on TV see these malfunctions when they happen?” Good question, Carlos, and the answer is yes, they do. Now, most wrestling promotions that televise live shows have a five second delay between the actual live action at the show and what you see on television. This gives the production staff time to edit out any potential issues, such as a wardrobe malfunction. But there are plenty of times that the production team are not able to censor an issue immediately, and of course, it is viewed by the TV audience. It’s not perfect, but it’s one of the challenges that hosting a live TV show brings. Thanks for the question!
