Bullet Club is making some major in-roads in two U.S. promotions.
Tonight’s Impact Wrestling will have Jay White IN the Impact Zone. New Japan’s NEVER Openweight Champion appeared at the very end of Saturday night’s Slammiversary pay per view. White stood in the ring with Kenny Omega, the Good Brothers...but it’s not clear if he’s going to side with the former Bullet Club members.
Two other New Japan stars - Juice Robinson & David Finlay are back in Impact. They’ll face Ace Austin & Madman Fulton on tonight’s show.
Mickie James will appear in the Impact Zone tonight...just days after she confronted Knockouts Champ Deonna Purrazzo at Slammiversary.
Fire n’ Flava will get their rematch for the Knockouts Tag Titles tonight against the new champs Havok & Rosemary.
Also tonight, Chris Bey vs. Rohit Raju...and Brian Myers, Sam Beale & Tenille Dashwood vs. Matt Cardona, Jake Something & Chelsea Green
A NEW IWGP United States Champion was crowned on last night’s AEW Dynamite. Lance Archer ended Jon Moxley’s 565-day reign. Archer defeated Mox in a Texas Death Match in last night’s main event. The finishing blow was a choke slam by Archer from the ring apron through two tables topped with barbed wire boards set up side-by-side on the arena floor. Mox could not answer the referee’s 10-count...and Archer is your new champion.
After the match, Bullet Club’s Hikuleo - who had a ringside seat for most of the show - got in the ring to confront Archer. Archer will defend his newly won title against Hikuleo on next week’s Dynamite.
Also announced for next week - the high stakes 10-man Elimination Tag between The Elite and Hangman Page & Dark Order. Hangman’s shot at Kenny Omega’s AEW Championship hangs in the balance.
The two sides - minus the Young Bucks - came face-to-face last night...after Doc Gallows beat Frankie Kazarian.
Dr. Britt Baker is STILL the AEW Women’s Champion. She submitted Nyla Rose with the Lockjaw.
Chris Jericho cleared the first labour on his quest for a match against MJF. Jericho beat Shawn Spears. After the match, MJF announced the second labour...will be a No Rules Match next week against Nick Gage. Jericho later revealed that he’ll bring back his “Painmaker” persona for that match.
Andrade El Idolo introduced his new executive consultant last night - Chavo Guerrero Jr. The new duo quickly found themselves in a confrontation with all three members of Death Triangle.
Bodyslam.net’s Cassidy Haynes is reporting that Daniel Bryan is “locked in”...and has signed a deal with AEW. Haynes’ report included numerous details including information on Bryan’s contract and plans for his debut.
The NXT UK Tag Team Titles are on the line today. Pretty Deadly defend against Subculture’s Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster.
Today’s NXT UK is also promising an update on the postponed title match between WALTER and Ilja Dragunov.
New Japan, Pro-Wrestling NOAH and All Japan are all running major shows on Thursday.
On Friday, New Japan has another Summer Struggle show...with a flip-flop of the opponents at the top of Thursday’s card. Friday’s show will see Tetsuya Naito vs. Zack Sabre Jr...and SANADA vs. Taichi.
