The first few posts are from this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter. For the full newsletter and much more get a subscription at http://www.f4wonline.com/
Dave Meltzer's star ratings are now posted in their own thread, so look for it.
Use this thread to post news as it comes through. Do not use the old thread for anything new, please move discussion to here instead.

> COVID has now spread into a number of promotions this past week with a major outbreak in WWE, some in AEW and four of the biggest stars, if not more, in CMLL. All three promotions had to change aspects of their television shows this week. AEW’s television main event was changed. NXT had changes as well as noted by those in the company but were not specific as to what the changes were past there was a significant outbreak. The outbreak was said to affect plans for the Raw brand for 9/28, but there has been no indication it affects the scheduled matches on the 9/27 Clash of Champions a far as participants in the bouts themselves.

> However, those who have been training at the Performance Center of late have been taken off Raw or Smackdown tapings until further notice. There is also fear that the large number of Performance Center athletes who were under masks at Retribution may lead to issues due to interacting with the Raw roster on the 9/21 show.

> Lance Archer tested positive for COVID this past week which caused the company to change the 9/23 TV show. Archer said that when he got home from the last set of shows two weeks ago, a member of his family was sick. He said that person had been driven to the vet by a friend who turned out to test positive. Archer said that he ended up sick and then tested positive.

> Archer was the exception to the rule in the sense that his positive was not wrestling related. Most of the positives in AEW and NXT were related to talent that is in Orlando (not necessarily all, as there is thought some is also related to independent wrestling as some AEW talent and extras have worked some indie dates of late, Ben Carter being the name that has come out although he is not AEW contracted talent). Carter said that he contracted the disease after 9/10, when his recent AEW matches were taped.

> Serena Deeb, who just signed an AEW contract and worked the last set of tapings, said that earlier this week she was in contact with someone who tested positive and would be quarantining herself for two weeks. She seemed to target the date as around 9/20 as on 9/24 she said she would be quarantining for another ten days. She was scheduled on the 9/29 UWN PPV show against Allysin Kay. That match has been changed to Kay vs. Nicole Savoy.

> With the Orlando area being a hotbed as far as wrestlers go, talent from WWE and AEW socialize, go to the gym together, and some are even in relationships together, as well as socialize with some of the same fans and insiders. One person very familiar with the testing results and spread said that was the key reason why it happened at the same time with both companies. There is also the issue with independent promotions opening up, some with fans in attendance. While some are testing, not all are doing so. WWE talent never works independent shows but the non-contracted AEW talent work as many indies as they can, and some AEW contracted talent still works indies as well.

> AEW has acknowledged that the story itself is accurate but due to privacy would not say anything more about it other than Archer has tested positive since he went public with it. AEW has gone a step farther of late in its testing. They are now requiring people to test before coming to Jacksonville and then they get tested a second time on arrival and are not allowed in until the results of the second test come in. With Tony Khan’s NFL connections, he is working with the NFL Covid response team for stricter protocol.

> The idea was that since Eddie Kingston actually didn’t go over the top rope in the Battle Royal (which was likely going to be used down the line) that he would get the 9/23 title match. Right now Moxley vs. Archer is scheduled for the 10/14 Anniversary show. The was talk that they hope the planned six-man tag with Archer & Ricky Starks & Brian Cage vs. Moxley & Darby Allin & Will Hobbs would take place on 10/7 based on the idea they are still planning the match and that would be the only date possible to have it sinc…

James Storm Reveals How He Almost Returned To WWE Earlier This Year
>Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion James Storm was in talks to return to WWE earlier this year.

>Storm recently spoke with Pro Wrestling Sheet and revealed that he was first approached by WWE during Royal Rumble Weekend back in January. He missed the e-mail while working a show for the NWA, and didn't see it until he returned home. Storm noted that WWE's Senior Director of Talent Development Canyon Ceman e-mailed him about coming in as then-RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman wanted to use him.

"I get home and I see I got an email from Canyon Ceman saying, 'Hey, we're interested. Paul Heyman wants me to reach out and bring you to Raw," Storm said. "I was like, 'Wait … I think Bobby is going to Raw. Hmmm. This could be interesting.' Ya know?"

>After a successful run in TNA that ran from 2002 through 2015, Storm left the company and made a few appearances for the WWE NXT brand in October 2015. He defeated Danny Burch on the October 21, 2015 episode, and then defeated Adam Rose on the December 2 episode. He ended up returning to TNA/Impact Wrestling in December of that year after passing on a WWE contract due to TNA offering him more money.

>Storm, who currently holds the NWA World Tag Team Titles with Eli Drake, noted that the most recent WWE contact came around the time NWA boss Billy Corgan let him out of his deal early by not exercising a rollover clause in his contract, because they wanted to help him finally get to WWE. Storm offered to work the NWA shows during WrestleMania 36 Weekend but COVID-19 forced several events to be cancelled that weekend.

"I told them I would work the weekend of WrestleMania shows with Eli [Drake] to drop the NWA belts to whoever they wanted to drop it to. Just go out on good terms. Good business, ya know? Then that show got cancelled for the NWA, and then it kept snowballing," Storm said.

>Storm said he prepared for WWE's mandatory pre-signing physical in the months that followed WrestleMania Weekend, paying out of pocket for his own test each month, just to make sure he would pass when he had to take the tests for WWE. He also bought new gear and it looked like he was finally returning to WWE, this time under contract.

"We agreed on all the terms. It was signed," he revealed.

>Storm was told that WWE had to put the offer on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic. He last spoke with WWE in July, and nothing had changed. Storm remains hopeful that another opportunity with WWE will come along, and he's optimistic that he and former "Beer Money" partner Robert Roode will get to work together in WWE.

"You just take it and keep rolling," Storm said. "It's not their fault. It's just how everything is right now."

How would WWE have been if he never left for hollywood and stayed in the business for another 15 years?

Could the ratings have stayed high? Or would he be helpless to overcome WWE turning to shit?

Ratings were already on a downward spiral since the night after WrestleMania 17.
People just stopped watching.
It doesn't matter if he would've stayed. Plus he wouldn't have stayed full time. He would've just did a part time run and done big dream matches at WM.

>Drew McIntyre to look for a new challenger on RAW?
At Clash of Champions, Drew McIntyre successfully defended his WWE Championship against Randy Orton. The match also saw the involvement of legends like the Big Show, Christian, Shawn Michaels, and Ric Flair. All of whom had faced the wrath of The Viper's Punt on WWE RAW previously. While the match was engaging with the entire story narrated well, it still ended up making The Scottish Psychopath look slightly weak. Overall though, it now means his WWE title feud with Orton has finally ended. Thus, McIntyre can look beyond The Viper in search of a new challenger. Although McIntyre has had an impressive run as the WWE Champion, he could still engage in a few more exciting title feuds. WWE should have the likes of Kevin Owens, Aleister Black, Andrade, and more to challenge McIntyre next. A good feud, even if it is short-lived, could help elevate McIntyre’s title reign. Therefore, we could now see him searching for a new challenger on WWE RAW. It will be interesting to know what is planned for the champion. Whatever is in store, it needs to pan out soon. Why? Because things could change quickly for McIntyre if he gets drafted to Friday Night SmackDown during next month's WWE Draft.

>What is RETRIBUTION planning for this week’s RAW?
The last few weeks finally introduced the real faces behind the RETRIBUTION. But they got themselves immensely over with the crowd with their social media activity. T-Bar, especially, has been ruling Twitter and is now looking more promising than ever. This has a huge potential, and hopefully, WWE RAW will capitalise on the same. This week on WWE RAW, we could see RETRIBUTION make a return to the red brand. Given that they have continuously disrupted championship matches, it is possible that one of the RETRIBUTION members will set his sights on the WWE Championship. We could also see Reckoning running ruckus in the women’s division. The threat from RETRIBUTION isn’t limited to the WWE Championship. They could also target the United States Championship Title, especially if you take the previous altercations between them and The Hurt Busines into account. In any case, RETRIBUTION could cause a lot of problems for the current Superstars on the WWE RAW roster. And it will be interesting to see what they are planning for tonight.

>Asuka and Zelina Vega continue their WWE RAW Women’s Championship feud
At Clash of Champions 2020, Asuka successfully defended her WWE RAW Women’s Championship against Zelina Vega in a fairly decent match. But what happened in the end was all the more interesting. Asuka stated that Vega is a ‘firecracker’ and has a lot in her that one can’t decipher by simply looking at her. As a show of respect, Asuka wanted to shake hands with her opponent. Unfortunately for her, that’s not what Vega wanted. Instead, she blindsided Asuka and kicked her in the stomach before escaping from the ring. An agitated Asuka screamed at Vega while the latter teased that she is not yet done with the champion. We can expect both the Superstars to continue their feud with Asuka on WWE RAW. In the absence of a lot of names on the WWE RAW roster, Zelina Vega is easily one of the most promising Superstars who can challenge Asuka for the title. Moreover, a good feud between the two can help establish Vega as a serious threat. It is highly unlikely that she will take the title away from Asuka. But she can still emerge as one of the strong contenders in the Women’s division.

>Will we see more of Rey Mysterio’s family on WWE RAW?
The involvement of Dominik Mysterio in his father’s feud on WWE RAW was well-planned. It facilitated a great debut for Dominik, who feuded with Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy. However, it appears that WWE are not yet done with involving Rey’s family into the business. The last few weeks also saw Rey Mysterio’s wife and daughter make appearances on the show. Rey Mysterio’s daughter Aalyah sympathised with Buddy Murphy when the latter was brutally injured on WWE RAW. Following that, Rollins decided to bring up the legitimacy of her relationship with Rey Mysterio, implying that she is not his daughter. Even Aalya was upset when Rey called her ‘naive’, and she walked away from her family. It is evident that the creative are g…

>Discuss people in wrestling you thought were going to take off and elevate their careers significantly but for one reason or another it didn't pan out
Christina Von Errie is a wrestler from Reno, NV but who got adopted by the SoCal scene where people first took notice of because of her Brody Dalle-esque Punk Rocker character. She started off in 2008 and by 2010 she was already the "other girl" in PWG, being the only other woman wrestling in the promotion besides Candice LaRae. By the end of 2010, TNA had her come do a dark match for them so they could take a look at her.

In 2011, SHIMMER the All women's promotion out of Chicago made her a regular roster member and TNA took her on as "Toxxin", pairing her up with Shannon Moore and Jesse Neal of Ink Inc. While the role was small, get a foot in the door of nationally televised TNA seemed like it meant Christina was going to stay on the radar. Jesse Neal and Von Errie had a whirlwind romance that lead to them getting engaged by July 2011 but the relationship broke apart afterwards.

It was around the 2011 point where I thought "Alright, PWG and TNA in the bag, she's about to go somewhere with this now".

In 2013 she started picking up dates with CZW and sister promotion WSU, which was around the same time she began engaged to Deathmatch mainstay MASADA and indeed the two worked a few matches with each other. They were also engaged at one point but that also didn't work out.

The mid-10s were good for Christina indie-wise, where she was now picking up numerous gigs in promotions across America, however, the TNA gig from 2011 didn't produce as much mileage as I might have thought. Ink Inc didn't go far past 2011 and thus neither did "Toxxin". TNA brought her back years later as the GFW's Women's Champion put that angle ended up a lame duck and didn't lead to much extra work. In that same era she picked up some work with HOODSLAM in Oakland, which I thought might be good for her as new "home" promotion since Christina's punk thing would definitely vibe with them. Being from Reno, she occasionally worked with Reno Scum. Reno Scum ended up working for Impact for a while, but CVE was not brought back in with them.

However, by the end of the 10s she was drifted towards Canada and ECCW up in the Vancouver, British Columbia area. This would eventually lead her to meeting and marrying Scotty Mac, a mainstay of that promotion, in what appears to be a very happy marriage. As a result of that, Vancouver and ECCW act as her current base.

In 2019 WWE signed Shotzi Blackheart, a Californian chick who started working in 2015 who also runs with an alternative/punk look who had worked with promotions such as HOODSLAM and wrestled Von Errie in a few matches in 2018 before being signed. Shotzi is now doing very well for herself in NXT.

I thought between an easy-to-communicate character, a varied experience of working with both guys and girls, and getting a connection with a televised company like TNA would have put CVE on the path to be someone decently visible on the wrestling radar, but for whatever that didn't quite go for her and she remained only ever doing good but not outstanding on the indie scene.

Go figure. Who you guys got?

Looking through their IGs. Looks like they both stopped appearing in each others posts around August last year. Notably Cory, who seemingly just reposts the same few pictures of himself over and over had a picture of him, Taeler and Ken Jeong together, but after August every time he posted that pic, Taeler is cropped out of it.

They still both follow each other though so who knows.

The Bucks' part was grating and unfunny as usual - they're the worst part of their own show and have been for a long time

I'm currently watching the Bobby Lashley vs Apollo Crews match, during the match Bobby was outside and threatened to hit Ricochet, it made me think what would happen if he did hit him? Would he get disqualified?

I tried googling the rules for this but all I got were questions related to WWE games. I can think of times where managers got on the apron and were hit, but I can't remember if the ref saw it or not. There have been times where wrestlers have jumped in the ring, been attacked by the participants of the match and the match has been called off before the participants were attacked (deemed a no contest), but there are also times where a wrestler enters the ring, exists and the match hasn't been called off (times where the 24/7 champion has run through).

I'm thinking he'd have to get disqualified for hitting him, only for the reason being he didn't hit him, if he was able to hit him Ricochet wouldn't be able to hit back, so it'd be a weak think for Bobby to not attack him when he can freely do so without consequence. Any thoughts or examples would be great.

Of course, WWE's rules are bendable and they'll make the rules whatever they want whenever they want (HIAC 2019....)

We know the rules are made up. We're looking for consistency in both the rules and how a promotion enforces them. If one tag team match allows for both lucha-style "out of the ring" tags and traditional "tag in the corner" tags but another tag team match only allows "corner" tags, that would be inconsistent - and therefore stupid.

That's why people got pissed off at Seth Rollins being disqualified in a HIAC Match: The entire point of the match is to give the people in the Cell a chance to destroy each other without limit. WWE eventually retconned that ruling to "referee stoppage" because even Vince and his Writer Monkeys figured out that they'd fucked up.

When you make a set of "rules" for a given "universe" (e.g., rules for how magic works in a fantasy setting), you must keep the rules consistent from start to finish. You can bend them - hi, "exact words" trope - but you can't break them unless you can justify how you're breaking them. WWE couldn't justify a DQ for a HIAC Match, so it retconned a DQ into a "ref stoppage". It's still bullshit, but at least WWE could justify that ending.

I still dont know how they even book a no dq match to have DQ.

Its worse than the time WCW brought back the over the top rope DQ...in 1998.

this thread is for all the people, matches and gimmicks that are undeniably, certifiably, unequivocally, unanimously, fundamentally, 100% scientifically-proven B - A - S - E - D. BASED.

I'll start with the most universally-beloved suggestion: the true crossface submission master SID.

Bro, I wish KENTA vs Sano was still on on youtube, it's the perfect squash match and Sano's finish at the time was the best.
A lost classic.
