I’m Matt Carlins and this is JUST Pro Wrestling News for Saturday, March 6, 2021.
This update is brought to you by IndyWrestling.us.
Results from Friday’s New Japan Cup matches and New Japan Strong are straight ahead in this update.
But first, let’s get into last night’s SmackDown...
Daniel Bryan will challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at Fastlane. Bryan earned the shot by submitting Jey Uso to win a Steel Cage Match on last night’s SmackDown.
Carmella is looking for a new sommelier. She FIRED Reginald!
Reggie later showed up at ringside during Bianca Belair’s match against Shayna Baszler. Reginald tried to chat up Sasha Banks. Belair shoved Reggie down onto his backside...then, she pinned Baszler with the KOD. After the match, Banks SLAPPED Reginald.
Banks and Belair are getting another shot at Jax and Basler’s women’s tag titles at Fastlane.
MURPHY was back on SmackDown - for the first time since early DECEMBER. He offered to help Seth Rollins solve his Cesaro problem. Seth told him to “get out of my sight”. Murphy had a match against Cesaro anyway, but lost via submission.
Sami Zayn finally realized that there’s something odd about Blake Christian being one of the cameramen following him around.
Friday’s NXT Injury Report said there’s no timetable for Kacy Catanzaro’s return from injury. She revealed earlier this week she suffered a partial PCL tear in her right knee.
NWA Women’s Champion Serena Deeb is also recovering from a knee injury.
She shared a picture of herself after she says she “had a scope done” on the knee. Deeb vowed to “be back before you know it.”
Tony Khan sounds confident that the “huge” AEW signing set to be revealed at Revolution will live up to the hype,

Khan on Friday also announced AEW has signed CAPTAIN Shawn Dean, who’s become a regular on Dark.
One more piece of news from Tony Khan. He told Forbes he’s “strongly considering” holding more AEW pay per views on Sundays - specifically Double Or Nothing and All Out.
AEW is running a special Saturday episode of Dark on its YouTube channel tonight, starting at 7PM.
TWELVE matches on the card...including Penta El Zero Miedo’s return from injury...for his first AEW match in nearly two months. Penta is also in the 6-Man ladder match tomorrow at Revolution. The winner there gets a shot at the TNT Championship on Wednesday’s Dynamite.

The New Japan Cup rolls on this morning with three first round matches.
Sunday’s show will have two Cup matches - Will Ospreay vs. Hiroyoshi Tenzan...and Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Gabriel Kidd.
Tournament results from Friday - Hirooki Goto beat Taichi...and Toru Yano outfoxed Bad Luck Fale.
On last night’s New Japan Strong…Lio Rush reversed a inside cradle into one of his own to beat Rocky Romero and qualify for the U.S. version of the New Japan Cup tournament. FILTHY Tom Lawlor also qualified. He beat The DKC.
IWTV and a number of wrestlers are cutting ties with Synergy Pro Wrestling...after learning the owner of that promotion is a registered sex offender. It appears this is the end of Synergy Pro, which was promoting a show for WrestleMania week in Tampa..
