Results from Impact’s Hard To Kill pay per view are straight ahead in this update but first…


WWE with a major announcement over the weekend - setting the dates and locations of the next THREE WrestleManias.

First, this year’s WrestleMania will be a two-night event for the second straight year - on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11. This year’s Mania was originally scheduled for March 28 at Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles.

Instead, it’ll be held at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium - which was supposed to host last year’s Mania before COVID-19 ruined those plans.

There will be live fans in attendance. WWE said it will announce ticket availability and safety protocols in the coming weeks.

WWE also announced next year’s WrestleMania will be at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Sofi Stadium in LA will finally get its WrestleMania in 2023.

Tonight’s Monday Night Raw has double champion Asuka in a non-title match against Alexa Bliss.

Adam Pearce went on Twitter Sunday night to thank fans who supported the idea of him challenging Roman Reigns for the Universal Title at the Royal Rumble. That title shot was shifted to Kevin Owens on Friday’s SmackDown. Pearce added that he’s “not medically cleared”.


Nyla Rose is OFF of Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite. She announced Saturday she’s isolating after an immediate family member tested positive for COVID-19. She was set for a match against Leyla Hirsch on Dynamite.

TSN’s social media announced Sunday that Penelope Ford will be taking Rose’s spot in that match against Hirsch.

The card for Tuesday night’s AEW Dark was announced over the weekend. It includes a match for Sonny Kiss. There was speculation over the past week that Sonny was injured, but Sonny said he’s ok.
