The British scene was really on fire not so long ago, now you just seem to hear about promotions folding. The first casuality of the global wrestling war between the top promotions. Fired by WWE's desired to buy up and consume everything in Wrestling. They also bought up so much of the top talent over here, for their NXT U.K project. World of Sport failed to get a full time T.V gig, despite great ratings. The promotionwas  last rumoured to have a possible link with AEW, in terms of making a comeback. There's also a lot of talent that'smoved across the pond to America.

This said, there's more Pro-Wrestling available to fans now, than there has been in a long time. There's so many alternatives now, you don't have to endure what one promotion has to offer. The whole scene has undergone some big major changes throughout 2019, both good and bad. Will 2020 be just as eventful?.

Jim Cornette has resigned from the NWA after making a racist remark during the match between Nick Aldis and Trevor Murdoch on last week's episode of NWA Powerrr.

The ROH self destruction continued this week. It announced this week that it won't renew the contract of WOH champion Kelly Klein due to a breach of contract after she helped Joey Mercury blow the whistle on the company's unethical practices.  Newsweek released an article on the whole fiasco today with some additional stories.

It's not over yet as someone leaked management's conversation about NJPW's Hikuleo, who was on the recent ROH UK tour.

It remains to be seen if Marty Scurll will renew with ROH and what happens to PCO and Brody King if he doesn't. Yet even with all of this, Flamita signed a one-year deal with it.

ACH (formerly Jordan Myles) was granted his release from WWE when a dispute over a T-shirt design went viral after he posted a rant and then did a live Q&A.  WWE said ACH had approved the design and ACH admitted that he did but on a different colored shirt. He then announced three appearances on the indie circuit. 

Oney Lorcan has requested his release from WWE but has not been granted it.

So Marty Scurll cut what will likely be his last ROH promo on the porch of a Cracker Barrel. He's probably trolling people and end up on Impact or something.
