After the massive dump ComicCorp was, there’s very little on the pro wrestling side of things so……yeah. Here we are.
Slammiversary XV Notes – We talked a bit last night about the news from Slammiversary, but here’s some more info from yesterday. Apparently Jeff Jarrett and the Anthem folks are beyond happy with how last night went, as there was a massive crowd that was turned away, as the IMPACT Zone was at full capacity.
Jeremy Borash suffered some serious puncture wounds on his hand that needed to be bandaged up, after going into the tact pile last night in his match. Alberto El Patron’s sister was at ringside last night, sporting the same match her brother and father wear. She was apparently in Paige’s reserved seat, which lead many to believe it was Paige. PWInsider however claims that it was indeed his sister.
As you can see below, he has two sisters that could easily resemble Paige. Take that for what you will.

Booker T Upset – Booker T was unhappy on SmackDown after The New Day parodied his infamous line to Hulk Hogan, “We’re coming for you, n***a
“. The joke from the New Day left out the slur, but it as done just a day after Lonzo Ball’s brother, LaMelo, uttered the same slur twice. Booker was unhappy with the whole situation, saying;
I just want publicly make it known that I don’t condone that at all. Especially coming off of Monday night. We as a people, we gotta know when it’s time to speak up and when it’s time to shut up. My mother told me that a long time ago. And if you don’t know, you know, it’ll come back to haunt you. Me saying that, it’s haunted me for many years. Still. So, you put yourself in a situation for something to happen.
Just like Mike Tyson did, I say that all the time. For these young kids to realize and speak up for themselves… but then again, I spoke up for myself because I was talent. That’s the difference. I spoke up because I knew I could speak up. More than anything, I implore these people out there to know exactly what they’re doing, and how they are affecting the next generation of young people growing up. That’s the most important thing as far as I’m concerned.
And me personally, I know I’ve made mistakes. That word that I said on national television in front of the world, I wish I could go back and erase it. I wish that I could take it back, I wish that WWE would never do stuff like that ever again and left something like that happen.
Me personally, like I said, I don’t appreciate it. I don’t know if [WWE] knew that the parody was gonna go down, because I knew [The New Day] write and do a lot of their own stuff. But I just don’t think that we as a company need to go that route. I think that parody should have never been shown on television, because it wasn’t a great moment for us as black people. For us as black people, it was one of our worst moments.
Pop TV Stars Backstage – There’s a new special on PopTV called
‘SwoleMates’, and it features two body builders and their life and whatnot. Apparently they’re backstage with GFW tonight, so it’s possible that they could be apart of something.
Amped Finally Coming to TV – In a now-removed-video, Global Force Wrestling announced that it’s previous television pilot dubbed “Amped” was coming to pay per view. This was before GFW merged with TNA. The pilot is now being worked into a “four-part” anthology series for pay per view. There was an accompanying video for it, but it’s sense been removed.
Expect the pay per view to be announced on IMPACT this week.
Quick Hits – Jeff Hardy to host musical performance for new album after RAW on 7/17/17 in Nashville at The Valentine. Ken Shamrock wants to fight Brock Lesnar in a pro wrestling match. Dave Meltzer believes the Hardy’s have closed the gap in their negotiations for the Broken Gimmick.
