(STINGER: New Japan)
New Japan’s back-to-back Super J Cup winner, El Phantasmo makes his Impact Wrestling debut tonight.
Also on the show, three more qualifying matches for a 6-Way #1 Contender’s Match for the Impact World Championship.
It’ll be Moose vs. James Storm...Rhino vs. Chris Sabin...and Trey Miguel vs. Rohit Raju.
The winners join Sami Callihan, Matt Cardona and Chris Bey in the 6-Way at Under Seige. That’s an Impact Plus exclusive show on Saturday, May 15th.
Getting back to tonight’s show...we’re also getting Doc Gallows vs. Juice Robinson...Taylor Wilde vs. Susan...and Kiera Hogan vs. Rachael Ellering.
AEW delivered Blood & Guts on last night’s Dynamite...and The Pinnacle prevailed.
The end came after MJF and Chris Jericho found their way to the top of the double cage. MJF bloodied Jericho and threatened to throw him off. The rest of the Inner Circle surrendered. MJF then threw Jericho off anway.
The first match at the Double Or Nothing pay per view was announced last night. Dr. Britt Baker will get her shot at Hikaru Shida’s AEW Women’s Championship.
The challenger for Kenny Omega’s AEW Championship will be decided on next week’s Dynamite...when the top two ranked contenders go one-on-one: Pac vs. Orange Cassidy.
Earlier, Omega bailed on his partner MT Nakazawa...and he took the pin to lose a tag match to Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston.
Miro announced he will challenge Darby Allin for the TNT Championship next week. Earlier, Allin was thrown down a flight of concrete stairs by Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky.
SCU will get their shot at the Young Bucks’ tag titles next week. They won a 4-Way last night to secure that match. Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian stated months ago...that their next loss will mean the end for them as a team.
Cody Rhodes submitted QT Marshall with the Figure Four. Anthony Ogogo put down Cody with a single punch to gut after the match.
AEW’s Tony Khan told Busted Open Radio he expects full capacity at Daily’s Place for Double Or Nothing. That would be around 5,000 fans.
“El Jefe” was finally revealed on last night’s MLW Fusion. It is indeed former Lucha Underground figurehead Dario Cueto leading Azteca Underground.
He appeared in a prerecorded vignette at the very end of the show...having a chat with the recently abducted Salina de la Renta.
(Cueto MLW Reveal)
That clip from last night’s Fusion. Cueto went on to say he’d “see you” at MLW’s show in Philadelphia on July 10th.
Another major development on last night’s Fusion - Myron Reed reclaimed the MLW Middleweight Championship - avenging his title loss to Lio Rush.
MLW retconned Rush’s “phantom” AAA Cruiserweight Title win over Laredo Kid from weeks ago - a win that’s not recognized by AAA. MLW said Laredo Kid refused to accept the loss, citing video of Rush...perhaps tapping out...earlier in that title match.
A high stakes match on today’s NXT UK. Former tag partners Amir Jordan and Kenny Williams in a No Disqualification Match - Loser leaves NXT UK.
Also today, Ilja Dragunov vs. Dave Mastiff.
Fightful is reporting Daniel Bryan’s WWE contract expired following last Friday’s SmackDown...where he lost a Universal Title match to Roman Reigns.
Ring Of Honor announced the first entrant in its women’s title tournament will be 19-year-old independent wrestler, Rok-C.
New champions in Dragon Gate! At Wednesday’s “Dead Or Alive” show…Kaito Ishida & Kazma Sakamoto won the Open The Twin Gate Tag Titles...and Jason Lee, Dragon Dia & La Estrella won the Open The Triangle Gate Titles.
Also, SBKENTo lost his hair...in a Steel Cage “Hair vs. Mask” match against Dragon Kid..
