I’m Matt Carlins and this is JUST Pro Wrestling News for Wednesday, September 1, 2021.
This update is brought to you by the Wrestling Mayhem Show. Check out the new episode with special guest Daniel Eads right now wherever you get your podcasts.
The 100th episode of AEW Dynamite is at the Now Arena outside Chicago tonight. It’s the first of three straight AEW shows at that venue, culminating in Sunday’s All Out pay per view.
A new match was just added to tonight’s card: Penelope Ford vs. Tay Conti.
Also tonight, Cash Wheeler returns for the first time since his gruesome arm injury..as FTR take on Santana & Ortiz.
Plus, The Young Bucks and the Good Brothers vs. the Lucha Brothers and Jurassic Express...
Brian Cage vs. Powerhouse Hobbs…
Orange Cassidy vs. Jack Evans…
AND CM Punk will appear LIVE.
Kiera Hogan has been added to the Women’s Casino Battle Royale at All Out.
On last night’s Dark…
Joey Janela beat Robert Anthony. After the match, a mystery woman ran into the ring and POWERBOMBED Anthony. She left with Janela. Her name wasn’t mentioned on air, but we now know she is professional bodybuilder Kayla Rossi, who’s apparently only a few months into her training for pro wrestling.
Also last night, QT Marshall pinned Evil Uno with a Diamond Cutter...and Pac submitted Matt Sydal with The Brutalizer in the main event.
Sarray scored a countout win over Mandy Rose on last night’s NXT. I’ll explain. Sarray hit Rose in the face with her signature low dropkick. That sent Rose to the outside, but instead of getting back into the ring, Rose’s pals at ringside - Gigi Dolin and Jayce Jane - covered Rose’s face with a towel and they all rushed backstage.
Later, Dolin and Jane laid out Sarray backstage.
LA Knight pinned Johnny Gargano with his headlock DDT after Gargano got distracted by InDex antics at ringside.
Tommaso Ciampa pinned Ridge Holland with Willow’s Bell in last night’s main event. Pete Dunne tried to jump Ciampa after the match, but MSK were there to make the save.
MSK will defend the NXT Tag Titles against Dunne’s cohorts Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch on next week’s show.
Roderick Strong beat Ikemen Jiro. Also, Strong’s Diamond Mine faction added a couple members - Brutus & Julius Creed - real-life brothers Drew & Jacob Kasper, who both have strong amateur wrestling backgrounds.
NXT Women’s Champ Raquel Gonzalez beat Jessi Kamea in a non-title match.
Kyle O’Reilly submitted Duke Hudson with a heel hook.
Imperium’s Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner beat Drake Maverick & Grayson Waller.
Also announced for next week’s NXT, Zoey Stark & Io Shirai will defend their women’s tag tiles against Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro.
Asuka posted a picture of herself on social media Tuesday...showing herself now sporting a brace or cast on her left arm. Asuka hasn’t wrestled a match since the Money In The Bank pay per view.
Former Ring Of Honor World Champion Rush is recovering from surgery. The exact nature of the procedure is not clear. However, we do know Rush suffered a knee injury at last month’s Glory By Honor shows. His family is promising to share more information at a press conference NEXT Thursday.
On this past weekend’s ROH TV...Angelina Love found a way to get past Max The Impaler. Love beat her via disqualification to advance in the ROH women’s title tournament.
Trish Adora pinned Allysin Kay to advance in the tournament.
Also on the show, TV Champ Dragon Lee pinned Eli Isom to retain the title.
An upset on last night’s NWA Powerrr! Kenzie Paige used a sunset flip to pin Chelsea Greene.
The NWA’s next pay per view will be Hard Times 2 on December 4th.
