Wrestling news

** Here are the matches for tonight’s edition of AEW Dynamite at UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans:
*ROH Television ChampionshipMinoru Suzuki (champion) vs. Samoa Joe
*AEW Tag Team Championship: Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus (Heroes) vs. ReDRagon
* CM Punk vs. Penta Oscuro
* Chris Jericho, Jake Hager and Daniel Garcia vs Eddie Kingston, Santana and Ortiz
* Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland vs. Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks
* MJF vs. Sean Dean
* Marina Schafer vs Sky Blue

This is one of the deepest TV lineups of the year from the company from an in-ring and star power point of view as CM Punk and Chris Jericho battle it out. It’s a question of how much Suzuki means but I feel the dynamism with atmosphere is strong and should punctuate a hot crowd. As of this afternoon, WrestleTix reported That close to 3,500 tickets were out of the show, so it’s not a huge number.

Tony Khan stated that there is an expected transgression With the show running after 10 PM ET. They obviously have their reasons for it, and it’s probably a test to see if Dynamite can artificially boost the rat’s number in the kitchen, which follows directly on TBS. On the schedule, they inserted mice into the kitchen at 10:02 p.m. ET. The downside is that you will inevitably irritate some of your audience who don’t follow every Twitter ad and set their DVRs to 8-10pm ET as the show never goes past two hours. It’s not an anomaly as many shows play with this kind of way and it was a constant in the Raw and Nitro days that Raw only gave up on overtaking in 2018.

In Canada, the programming team at TSN is aware of the bypass and will not affect the network’s coverage of dynamite. When speaking with someone from TSN, they encouraged those who rely on their DVRs to record the next program so they don’t miss the bypass part.

**There was a noteworthy scene On Tuesday’s episode of “Young Rock” on NBC. The scene is set in 1993 when Dwayne Johnson was 20 years old watching Yokozuna on TV, along with his 6-year-old cousin Joe Anoa’i aka Roman Reigns. Anoa’i tries to get Johnson to wrestle him with Johnson replies, “The world is not ready. A match of this magnitude can only happen at WrestleMania.” It would be the first example of the synergy between the program and WWE if the match takes place next year at SoFi Stadium. The match was reported to be the hope but of course, it would be contingent on Johnson’s schedule and would be his first real match in ten years, ruling out the angle and “match” he made with Eric Rowan on the show in 2016 which lasted four seconds. The truth is that Johnson was injured in both WrestleMania matches against John Cena and the second led to delays in filming “Hercules” that spring and it becomes a huge risk if the big production is changed because the main star wants to do wrestling the match – and she’ll be 50 by the time The Mania game will take place next April.

**Demand for the WWE event in Wales in September appears to have surfaced. Both the Daily Star and Alex McCarthy from TalkSport On Wednesday, it reported that more than 59,000 people had pre-registered for tickets within 24 hours of the September 3 announcementresearch and development It happened at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

** The Young Bucks spoke with SI.com’s Justin Barrasso for their rematch last week with FTR noting that it was scheduled for later this month and they convinced Tony Kahn to do so in Boston:

The former may have been more like a love letter to tag team wrestling, when in fact this one was more like a tag team wrestling proposition. I remember that after we played the first game, we all agreed that we should take a breath and not touch for a while. We were all mentally and physically drained, trying to live up to the pressure and hype of what people expected. I don’t think any of us intended it to take 18 months to get to the rematch, but maybe that’s why the arena was as electric as it was.

**WrestleMania Backlash’s WWE event page is no longer announcing Brock Lesnar for the May 8th showy. Lesnar lost to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania and has not been involved in WWE programming since.

** NXT 2.0 performer Raul Mendoza has received a name change. Legado del Fantasma member will now be known as Cruz Del Toro with his profile on the WWE website reflecting the change. Mendoza is his real name and comes after a slew of recent changes including changes to Marcel Barthel, Raquel Gonzalez, Pete Dunn, and Austin Theory.

** A dark match was added to NJPW Windy City Riot on Saturday with Utah’s Rocky Romero and Wheeler facing Kevin Knight and the DKC from Villa Park, Illinois. The match will be played for the audience in attendance thirty minutes before the start of pay-per-view on FITE TV.

**Paige VanZant spoke with Damon Martin from MMA Fighting about her commitment to AEW while also noting that she is looking to extend her contract with BKFC with plans to balance the two careers:

It’s definitely a long term partnership [with AEW]. This is not something I do because I think checking my bucket list, just to say I did. I want to be a part of their show I really do. I love what AEW does.

**Champion Carnival continued on Wednesday from Yokohama with a show in front of 223 fans. There were three matches in the tournament where Shotaro Ashino defeated Ryuki Honda in Group A, Jake Lee defeated Shigehiro Eri in Group B, and Kento Mihara defeated Takuya Nomura in Group B.

MMA News

** Cain Velasquez appeared in court on Tuesday and his request to continue was granted by Judge Jose Franco, and comes after he was denied bail in March during the trial. Velasquez also released a statement via his social channels on Tuesday:

In the statement, Velasquez wrote: “From the bottom of our hearts and from the bottom of our souls, we are forever grateful for your love. Your selfless gestures and kind words have given me strength in my darkest times.

Velazquez was arrested on February 28y He was charged with attempted premeditated murder after shooting at a car carrying passengers, one of whom was accused of molesting a member of the Velasquez family. Velasquez is believed to have targeted Harry Gularte, but she shot Gularte’s stepfather, who was being treated in hospital.

As Velasquez continues, he will remain in prison without bail.

**Marlon Moraes is retiring from UFC pentamed weight at age 33. His manager Ali Abdulaziz confirmed the news to ESPN’s Mark Raimondi with Moraes issuing a statement to the outlet:

I want to thank everyone: [UFC matchmaker] Sean Shelby [UFC president] Dana White and the UFC for giving me many opportunities. I would like to thank my family, my coaches, my manager, everyone who has been around and has been a part of my career. I’m still in this sport helping young people and helping my friends.

Moraes began his career fifteen years ago in 2007 and rose to prominence in the promotion of the World Series of Fighting (which later evolved into the PFL). He was part of WSOF’s first card in November 2012 and would go 11-0 with the promotion, winning his 135-pound title in March 2014 and defending it five times before leaving the company as champion and moving to the UFC in 2017. He lost his debut in the company to Rafael Asuncao in UFC 212 but won his next four fights as he knocked out current champ Aljamain Sterling and avenged his loss by submitting Assuncao in February 2019. Henry Cejudo fought for the vacant bantamweight title at UFC 238 in June 2019 and lost by TKO in the third round and will go 1-4 during His next five battles. He beat Jose Aldo by a narrow split decision in December 2019 (which I agreed to Moraes’ victory) but it is Aldo who will battle for the title after the loss. Moraes’ career ended with the loss of Corey Sandhagen, Rob Font and Merab Dafleshvili, and Song Yadong losing last month.

On this date

It’s the 25y Pay-per-view anniversary of ECW’s Barely Legal from Philadelphia in 1997. It was the company’s first pay-per-view event after countless struggles including the fallout from the Erick Kulas incident. The show is built around Terry Funk winning the ECW Championship at the age of 52 in the main event from Raven. Moments after it went off the air, the power went out and it was a miracle they made it to the end seconds before. The show was immortalized in the Barry Blaustein movie “Beyond the Mat” released two years later which featured the famous pre-event speech from Paul Heyman mobilizing forces.
