Daily News Update – January 16, 2020

All kinds of stuff coming out of the Wednesday Wars last night!

DATELINE:  Kacy Catanzaro returned in the women’s battle royale on NXT.  However, it was Bianca Belair who won to set up the title match for the next Takeover.

DATELINE;  The Jericho Booze Cruise show next week features Hangman & Kenny challenging for the tag titles, plus PAC v. Moxley in a #1 contender match, as they load up the show.  Also, THEY’RE ON A BOAT.

And in honor of Rocky Johnson’s passing, WWE posted a clip from Championship Wrestling, where we see a young Dwayne in the audience watching this dad wrestle.  RIP to the original Rock.

Happy hump-day, with a low of -39C here in Saskatoon.  I had to do Powerrr last night because hearing “Into the Fire” made me think of warmer places and how I’d rather be there.  Mmmm, fire.

DATELINE:  Elias signed a five-year deal to stay in WWE.  Really, where else was he gonna go?

DATELINE:  Nick Aldis will face Flip Gordon in the main event of NWA’s Hard Times PPV.  Plus the NWA TV title tournament.

I haven’t watched AEW Dark yet, but here it is in case you want to…

Good morning!  The news is shockingly thin going into Royal Rumble, but I’ll soldier on for you.

DATELINE:  MJF is now done with MLW and will be apparently exclusive to AEW.

DATELINE:  Conor McGregor is claiming that he’s making $80 million to fight Donald Cerrone.  Guys, I think he might be fibbing a little.

And here’s Being the Elite for this week, so you can catch up on all the AEW backstory.

Daily News Update – January 13 2020

Hey, it’s -30 degrees Celsius here in Saskatoon this morning and probably all this week.  How’s YOUR day going so far?

DATELINE;  Kazuo Sakurada, better known as Kendo Nagasaki, passed away this weekend.

DATELINE:  Brian Cage has reportedly jumped from Impact to AEW.  Although his wife is denying it on Twitter.  Maybe he’ll start a mysterious group of evil heels.

This morning, enjoy Jeff Hardy v. Edge from Royal Rumble 2009!

Daily News Update – 01.10.20

Well, we’re back with NWA Powerrr again, and boy did I miss it.  Hopefully Corgan’s money doesn’t run out before he finds a real TV deal.

I figure that since I’ve been doing these every morning in Brian’s absense I might as well make a header image for it, too.

DATELINE:  AEW kicked the shit out of NXT this week in the ratings.  There’s just no nicer way to put it, sorry.

DATELINE:  ROH will feature their “Supercard of Honor” show over Wrestlemania weekend.

And for your viewing pleasure, Carmella hosts a new YouTube show called “If It’s On the Internet”, where she addresses various rumors and HOT NEWZ.  Now that’s a good use of her!
