I’m Matt Carlins and this is JUST Pro Wrestling News for Tuesday, January 19, 2021.

This update is sponsored by IndyWrestling.us.

Results from Monday Night’s Raw and Ring Of Honor’s weekend TV are straight ahead in this update but first…

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre announcing Monday he’ll be back on Raw NEXT Monday night. McIntyre is quarantining after he tested positive for COVID-19. WWE also promoting Goldberg for next Monday - the final Raw before the Royal Rumble, where Goldberg will challenge McIntyre for the WWE title.

Newly declared entrants for the Royal Rumble matches: Jeff Hardy, Peyton Royce and Alexa Bliss.

Speaking of Bliss...she scored a BIG win in the main event of last night’s Raw - pinning the Raw Women’s Champion Asuka. It was a non-title match. Alexa seemingly transformed mid-match into a more evil version of herself...absorbed some powerful strikes from Asuka...and then hit Sister Abigail for the win.

As for Randy Orton - one week after Bliss blasted him with a fireball to the face... Orton appeared backstage in a dark room, wearing a mask, at the start of Raw.

AJ Styles beat Ricochet after an eye-popping reversal into a Styles Clash. Ricochet was hoping to prove that he deserves a spot in the Royal Rumble.

Shayna Baszler tapped out Mandy Rose. Shayna and Nia Jax are NOT getting along.

The Hurt Business beat Riddle and the Lucha House Party. Cedrix Alexander and Shelton Benjamin are NOT getting along either.

Charlotte Flair submitted Peyton Royce. Ric Flair showed up along with Lacey Evans - who was wearing one of Ric’s robes - but their distraction was ineffective.

Also, Mace from Retribution beat Xavier Woods.

(STINGER: Impact)

Tonight’s Impact Wrestling has fallout from last Saturday’s Hard To Kill pay per view. Plus, Eric Young vs. Rhino...and Kimber Lee & Susan vs. Jordynne Grace & Jazz.

Four-time former Knockouts Champion ODB says she’s returning to Impact.

ODB speaking with Chris Van Vliet. She said we can expect to see her in Impact “soon”.

(STINGER: AEW)

Tonight’s AEW Dark has 14 matches. Among them, Santana & Ortiz vs. Danny Limelight & Jon Cruz…”Dragon vs. Dinosaur”: Brandon Cutler vs. Luchasaurus...plus, the Lucha Bros. are in action.

Bullet Club’s Tama Tonga blasting The Elite yet again - and the Bullet Club imagery recently seen on AEW and Impact TV.

That clip from a video tweeted by Tama as he promoted his Tama’s Island podcast which is streaming on Twitch tonight.

By the way, New Japan is wrapping up three straight days at Korakuen Hall this morning with another Road To The New Beginning show.

(STINGER: ROH)

Dragon Lee is still the Ring Of Honor TV champion. He survived a tough challenge from Rey Horus on ROH’s weekend TV.

Also on that show, Flip Gordon pinned Rhett Titus in a Pure Rules. But because he punched Rhett in the face during the match - on top of other past behavior - Flip is now SUSPENDED from the Pure Division.

Ring Of Honor’s “Week By Week” YouTube show today will have a Gauntlet Match involving students from the ROH Dojo. The winner gets a shot at Jonathan Gresham’s Pure Title. It’ll be Joe Keys vs. Dante Caballero vs. Ken Dixon vs. Eric Martin.
