I’m Matt Carlins and this is JUST Pro Wrestling News for Monday, June 14, 2021.
This update is brought to you by IndyWrestling.us.
After weeks of hype and vignettes...Eva Marie is set to return on tonight’s Raw.
Also being promoted for tonight’s show: Drew McIntyre vs. AJ Styles...and Randy Orton & Riddle vs. Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston.
WWE officially announced over the weekend that Roman Reigns will defend the Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio INSIDE Hell In A Cell.
NXT TakeOver: In Your House went down last night...
Karrion Kross turned away four challengers in the main event to retain the NXT Championship. He choked out Kyle O’Reilly for the win...swooping in as O’Reilly appeared to be close to tapping out Adam Cole.
Also last night, Raquel Gonzalez pinned Ember Moon to hold onto the NXT Women’s Championship.
North American Champ Bronson Reed & the NXT Tag Champs MSK beat Legado Del Fantasma to retain their titles.
The only new champion crowned last night was LA Knight. He’s now only the fifth man in history to hold the Million Dollar Championship after he beat Cameron Grimes in a Ladder Match.
Also, Xia Li pinned Mercedes Martinez. Martinez went looking for revenge right after the match. She went after Li with a steel chair, but the leader of Tian Sha proved tougher. She put a choke hold on Martinez and tossed her from the stage down to the floor.
The show ended with GM William Regal in the parking lot...saying he thinks it’s time for a change, and then walking away.
NXT is promoting a follow-up on Regal’s comments for Tuesday’s show.
Plus, a Tornado Tag Team Match between the Grizzled Young Veterans and Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher...and Kushida in a Cruiserweight Championship open challenge.
NXT will hold its Great American Bash special in its normal time slot on the USA Network...coming up on July 6th.
We have at least eleven matches announced for tonight’s Dark: Elevation, including Scorpio Sky vs. Alex Reynolds...and Angelico vs. Mike Sydal.
Plus, Penta El Zero Miedo & Eddie Kingston in tag team action...as well as singles matches for Orange Cassidy and Wardlow.
Kenny Omega is still the Impact World Champion. He pinned Moose with the One Winged Angel in the main event of Saturday’s Against All Odds show.
The show was held at Daily’s Place...to prevent interference by the Good Brothers and Sami Callihan. But that didn’t account for the Young Bucks. They ran out after referee Brian Hebner was knocked down. The Bucks hit some superkicks and a BTE Trigger on Moose...and Kenny took it from there.
Callihan actually showed up in Daily’s Place...right after the match...and went after Omega. Omega was able to escape. Then, Don Callis FIRED Callihan.
Impact went the extra mile over the weekend - pulling Callihan’s profile from its website, unfollowing him on Twitter. Callihan tweeted “I’ll see you on Thursday”.
Getting back to Against All Odds...Deonna Purrazzo pinned Rosemary to retain the Knockouts Title.
Joe Doering PINNED Satoshi Kojima with a powerbomb.
Violent By Design also held onto the Impact Tag Titles...as Rhino & Deaner beat Crazzy Steve & Black Taurus.
W. Morrissey used a series of powerbombs to pin Rich Swann.
A 5-Way X-Division #1 Contender Match ended in a “no contest” after Madman Fulton took out everyone other than his pal Ace Austin.
Fire n’ Flava beat Kimber Lee & Susan to retain the Knockouts Tag Titles.
Finally...Tenille Dashwood used a rollup to pin Jordynne Grace. Grace had gotten preoccupied with yelling at Rachael Ellering, who cut off Kaleb (With A K)’s attempted interference. After the match, Grace yelled at Ellering some more...and hit Kaleb with a Michinoku Driver.
Ring Of Honor has added EC3 vs. Flip Gordon to its Best In The World pay per view, which is coming up on July 11th.
