MVP has been fired from Lucha Underground a week after signing with them. On YouTube he explained that his contract was terminated after he interviewed members of the cast for his podcast, which violated the non-disclosure terms of his deal.
According to Wrestling Observer, Ring of Honor’s Cedric Alexander is the latest name to be rumoured for WWE’s Global Cruiserweight Series, with EVOLVE, Progress and Revolution Pro expected to announce their qualifying matches in the next week or so. Kota Ibushi, meanwhile, claimed in Tokyo Sports that there were no concrete talks with WWE during last weekend’s visit, but “If there’s an offer, I’m definitely interested.”
NJPW Invasion Attack takes place tomorrow, headlined by Okada vs. Naito for the IWGP title and featuring, KUSHIDA vs. Ospreay for the Junior title, The Elite vs. Tanahashi, Elgin and a returning Yoshi Tatsu, and Sydal & Ricochet vs. Roppongi Vice for the Junior tag titles (the result of which will surely give a clear indication of Ricochet’s status).
Now talk, damn it!
