So NXT is getting another hour and moving to the USA Network on Wednesdays. Each episode will be uploaded to the WWE Network every Thursday and NXT Takeover events are still Network exclusive.

Vince fears AEW.

Rhonda Rousey almost lost a finger during the filming of the Fox TV show 911. A boat door fell on her hand and she was taken to the hospital after talking to the director between takes. Doctors had to put her middle finger back together with a plate and two screws as it was broken with the tendon severed. The tip of her ring finger was fractured as well.

AAA had to move it's NYC show out of MSG and into the much smaller Hulu Theater at MSG after only selling around 2000 tickets. MMA fighter Cain Velasquez is rumored to be appearing at that show and the company's following show in LA. 

AEW added Big Swole and Sadie Gibbs to its women's Casino Battle Royal at All Out.

Jon Moxley had to pull out of his match with Kenny Omega at All Out due to a MRSA infection in his elbow. Another dream match will be happening instead as PAC will replace him in the match.

Rey Fenix is questionable for All Out after sustaining a leg injury in a tag match with his brother against Juventud Guerrera & Teddy Hart on the indie circuit on Friday. He did wrestle on Saturday but did very little with no acrobatics. 

NJPW announced another US show for Saturday, November 9th. It is called New Japan Showdown and will take place in San Jose at the San Jose Civic Center. 

Cain Velasquez, who is linked with AAA, was at the Super J-Cup with his family and had an informal meeting with the promotion. Hmm...Velasquez vs either Kenta, ZSJ or Minoru Suzuki.....

The duo of nZo and CaZXL, also known as Enzo Amore and Big Cass, are rumored to be returning to WWE NXT. They've been made an offer, but there's no confirmation on whether they will accept a return or not.

As seen on SmackDown, Sami Zayn has allied himself with current IC champ Shinsuke Nakamura. Rumor is that they're making it a friendship similar to the Kevin Owens-Chris Jericho friendship the ended with the two disbanding and eventually facing off against each other.

http://www.wrestling-news.net/lance-storm-announces-storm-wrestling-academy-will-close-down/128467/

Lance Storm is shutting down his wrestling academy to focus on a full-time return to the ring. However, despite working as an agent for Impact, he will not be working for Impact as an in-ring performer. September 9 will mark the final training season at Storm Wrestling Academy as the school will close down at the end of the year.

I never expected to hear about Lance Storm making a come back at this stage in his career. But if PCO has confirmed anything, it's never say never. Aways felt he deserved a bigger push in Wrestling, he rose up the ranks pretty quikcly in ECW. Like to see him have a run in the NWA during his comeback.

Finger crossed Miss Rae is ok, I watched her a lot on the recent World of Sport: Wrestling show, screened here in Britian. A great talent, who got even better from what little I've seen of her in AEW.

Is Rusev trying to be the next Freddie Mercury?

Shane McMahon has been absent from WWE lately because he is in active jury duty for a case. This was confirmed by a local police officer who took a selfie with Shane. 

New Horizon Pro Wrestling, based out of Australia, will be the promotion who will bring former WWE superstar Danielle "Summer Rae" Moinet back to the squared circle and from what this poster looks like she will either face off against or team up with Tenille Dashwood.

PCO, looks like he could eat half the Ring of Honor roster alive. Or any other promotions roster for that matter, the guy looks legit scary. You don't get that luck from just shaving your eyesbrows off either.
