It’s being reported that Johnny Mundo, Taya Valkyrie, and the Christ brothers have signed to work upcoming live events for GFW/Impact Wrestling.
Jeremy Borash broke the news during a conference call earlier today with the media he also noted that Drago of AAA will be apart of some upcoming live events as well.
Mundo & Valkyrie won’t be able to be on TV till Lucha Underground S3 is done. So hopefully this doesn’t turn into another Cody Rhodes situation where they only do a couple shows for GFW/Impact.
Writers take: This is a damn good signing for GFW/Impact. Even if they don’t do TV down the line this helps them out selling tickets for the live events, etc. The future is looking pretty bright for Impact as of now.
As reported earlier, Shane McMahon was involved in a helicopter crash. Don’t worry he is perfectly fine after the pilot did an emergency crash landing in the Atlantic Ocean.
Here is a video of Shane McMahon discussing the crash landing via a clip on Twitter….. Check out @SI_ExtraMustard’s Tweet:
I love that one of the reporters asks….. “Are you Vince McMahon’s son” Shane replies with “Yes I am” then the reporter goes “Oh okay I was told to ask that”
My take: I’m glad Shane is A-OK and nothing bad happened to him in the helicopter crash.
WWE Champ Brock Lesner Vs Roman Reigns was the match that no one wanted for Wrestlemania. Since Rumble, Reigns had become the most hated man in wrestling. Fans booed, hissed and even went as far as to create a change.org petition to get him out of the Main Event. WWE was put into the precarious situation of having a Wrestlemania Main Event that no one wanted to see.
Enter The architect Seth Rollins. And with two Curb Stomp’s Rollins became the savior of Mania and the start of the future of WWE… Or so we thought. Rollins title reign has thus far been mediocre at best as every week we watch the champ title reign flounder do to bad writing and uninteresting matches. In Rollins defense it’s mostly not his fault. Pairing him with semi retired/retired wrestlers (The Authority) was clearly a mistake.
What if the outcome of Wrestlemania was different? What if the WWE went with the decision of Roman Reigns winning Wrestlemania? How different would the Title situation be now? Reigns Vs The Authority is a very different story than Rollins with them. Reigns as the champ that no one wants. The Authority trying to make him there champ and then trying to destroy him. So many ways you can go with the story. This year Reigns has greatly improved! Making him a fighting champ would have went a long way into making him a credible champ. And if all else fails you could have Rollins cash in a still have him have a championship run.
You can’t change the past and the presence is now. The WWE champ is Seth Rollins. While his run isn’t a total bust WWE has done everything in its power to make his run irrelvalant. It’s not too late to turn the tide. Rollins has great in ring ability and is very entertaining on the mic. Give him the room to grow his character and stand on his own two feet. And for god sake give him back the Curb Stomp!!!!
