Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News.
I am El Fakidor Laurie Blake.
And that’s it, the American Nightmare is
over, Cody Rhodes is all out of luck as he
lost the NWA Worlds Title to Nick Aldis at
the company’s Saturday’s 70th Anniversary
show in Nashville.
Cody’s reign started a little over a month
ago at All In, but he’s already ten pounds
lighter – that’s the kind of weight loss
that would make Robert Atkins eat his words.
Which he’s allowed to do because they’re
Anyway it’s almost as if him winning in
the first place was just a big old moment
to make All In feel special. A trick he must
have learned from the Vince school of booking.
I’m starting to think wrestling panders
Aldis toppled Cody in a close run two out
of three falls match, that saw him tap Cody
out with the King’s Lynn Cloverleaf, go
down for three after a Cross Rhodes and then
reverse a small package to secure the final
pinfall and regain his title.
Aldis will defend the title in Mexico against
Blue Demon Jr who was announced as his next
opponent during the show.
While all of this was going down in Nashville
up north in Winnipeg Canada, Don Callis was
turning on Kenny Omega.
The pair were appearing at a Premier Championship
Wrestling event called ‘The One’ Show,
not to be confused with the twee British chat
show of the same name, because not even Kenny
Omega is as well liked as smile given human
form Matt Baker. Loved him on Blue Peter,
which I’m sure sounds like a drugs reference
to the uninitiated.
Anyway, Callis appeared at the show and cut
a promo on Omega saying the Okada carried
him through his six-star match and that he
only got an IWGP Heavyweight Title shot because
Callis had got his friend Chris Jericho to
wrestle in NJPW. He then jumped Omega and
beat him down – callous Callis.
Don has continued the taunting on Twitter
“Only three wrestlers in the history of Winnipeg
were ever WWE Superstars: [Roddy] Piper, Chris
Jericho, and Don Callis. Any one else is just
To which Omega replied ‘see you on the cruise’
which is more threatening than the images
of sun soaked shuffleboarding it summons as
the two will meet again at Chris Jericho’s
Rock n Rager at Sea at the end of the month.
Someone is going overboard.
Aside form setting up P&Jericho Cruises, Y2J
has also been linked to a reported new wrestling
promotion being set up by the Khan family
who own the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and
Fulham FC of the Premier League.
The report from SEScoops.com says that Tony
Shad has been talking to various people in
the wrestling biz about the project including
agent Barry Bloom who represents Jim Ross,
Chris Jericho and Bill Goldberg.
Other names tied to the rumoured promotion
include Cody Rhodes, the Young Bucks and Adam
The report also mentions AXS as a potentially
home for the television series and a timeline
of 12-16 months for the launch.
Though AXS have released a statement saying
“There’s no truth to the AXS TV component.”
And Jericho has quickly put the kibosh on
the whole thing tweeting:
‘I’m starting my own wrestling company?
AWESOME! Im also starting my own movie studio
w #LadyGaga, my own carwash w #Bono & my own
The bakeshop will be called the Man of 1004
Rolls. The Ayotollah of Rock Cakes and Rolls.
