This update is brought to you by IndyWrestling.us.
Expect some fallout from last night’s Hell In A Cell pay per view on tonight’s Raw.
Bobby Lashley is STILL the WWE Champion.
He beat Drew McIntyre inside Hell In A Cell last night. MVP found his way inside the cell after the referee was knocked out. McIntyre battered MVP inside the cell. But later, it was MVP who made a timely grab of McIntyre’s ankle and Lashley rolled up McIntyre for the pin.
Also last night, Charlotte Flair beat Rhea Ripley...via disqualification. So, Ripley is still the Raw Women’s Champion.
Bianca Belair pinned Bayley with a KOD onto a ladder...INSIDE Hell In A Cell...to retain the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
The match between Alexa Bliss and Shayna Baszler included Alexa apparently hypnotizing Shayna and Nia Jax, who was at ringside. The apparent mind control over Nia caused her to strike down Reginald. Anyway, Bliss ended up pinning Shayna with the Twisted Bliss.
Sami Zayn pinned Kevin Owens with the Helluva Kick. Thanks to Sean Ross Sapp for pointing this out - that was Zayn’s first pinfall win in a one-on-one match since last October.
Seth Rollins reversed Cesaro’s giant swing into a rollup for the pin and the win.
Natalya submitted Mandy Rose with the Sharpshooter on the Kickoff Show.
Tonight’s AEW Dark: Elevation has Jungle Boy vs. Cezar Bononi...Matt Sydal vs. Jack Evans.
Plus, FTR is in tag team action. As well as the team of Eddie Kingston & Penta El Zero Miedo.
COVID-19 related issues are wrecking plans for a promotion in Japan once again.
The dominant, top title holder in All Japan - SUWAMA - vacated the Triple Crown Heavyweight Championship over the weekend...after he tested positive for COVID.
SUWAMA was set to defend the gold against the Champion Carnival winner Jake Lee in less than a week.
Both Kento Miyahara and Yuma Aoyagi stated Sunday they want to challenge for the title. But There’s no official word from All Japan on what it plans to do about this.
(STINGER: New Japan)
New Japan has announced its first show in front of live fans in the U.S. since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Resurgence will go down on Saturday, August 14th at The Torch - a 5,000 seat outdoor venue at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Among the names scheduled to appear - Jay White, Jon Moxley, the Good Brothers, FILTHY Tom Lawlor and Shota Umino.
The show is to be broadcasted live with Japanese commentary on New Japan World...and on FITE TV with English commentary.
Back in Japan, the Kizuna Road tour resumes on Tuesday...with the NEVER 6-Man Tag Titles on the line in the main event. Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii & YOSHI-HASHI defend against EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi & Dick Togo.
Looking further down the road...nine wrestling companies - including New Japan, NOAH, Dragon Gate and All Japan - will come together in September for a two-day event to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the first pro wrestling show ever held in Japan.
MLW officially confirmed some additional names for its Battle Riot III match coming up on July 10th: TJP...Gringo Loco...Kevin Ku...and newcomer Arez.
