Monday News Update

  • Bryan and I will be back tonight to talk about Raw and breaking news with Wrestling Observer Radio.
  • Happy 4th of July everyone.
  • Raw is tonight in San Diego. The only tricks announced beforehand were Rey and Dominick Mysterio in their hometown against Finn Balor and Damian Priest, and The Miz will answer Logan Paul’s challenge for SummerSlam. This will be the star of the SummerSlam version. Due to the holidays, TV ratings are expected to drop and it’s not even worth worrying about if it does. They will be somewhat helped out of a PPV show. But after two big numbers in a row, if they don’t get a big one this week, or there’s a big drop, it doesn’t make sense.
  • We’re looking for your thoughts on WWE Money in the Bank and UFC 276, so you can leave a thumbs up, thumbs down, or thumbs in the middle with a best and worst matchup at [email protected]
  • We’re also looking for reports from last night’s WWE show in Tucson, AZ and from Raw in San Diego tonight along with anything not on the live show, like Main Event matches, matches dark and crowd reactions to [email protected]
  • WWE held a talent meeting ahead of Money in the Bank. There wasn’t much to get out of it. Stephanie McMahon and Paul Levesque spoke and told the talent that they were one big extended family and told them how great things were. They did not answer any of Vince McMahon’s questions or any questions.
  • Impact made a home video about Don West, who is battling brain cancer. Mike Tenay was the point person on this and Scott D’Amore contributed over $13,000 to West’s medical bills a few weeks ago. Along with those on the roster and current company, Impact has tapped Dixie Carter, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, and more to make the video. Tenay and Don West were very moved by the comments made. Tenay and West were hoping the video could be shared and I think right now they’re looking to get everyone’s approval for it.
  • AEW set its all-time UK viewership record on ITV 4 on 6/24 with 188,000 viewers. This was the homecoming show for Forbidden Door. It may have to do with Will Ospreay because the ratings increased dramatically for the shows he was on.
  • Due to holidays, assessments will be delayed this week. Basically, everything will be pushed back a day. Friday’s numbers should be in place tomorrow. Saturday, Sunday, Monday and the last weekly issues should be Wednesday. Right now, it looks like Wednesday’s issues will be released on Thursday, but that could change.
  • WWE did 30% off tickets to SummerSlam and Raw at Madison Square Garden on 7/25 and got a good ticket move at both locations. There are more than 28,000 tickets distributed right now for Nashville for SummerSlam, which would exceed the 25,000 paid. First and foremost is the TV hype for the show which is set to begin tonight.
  • Shotzi posted a message saying she knew where she lost her footing on the ladder would make Botchmania and accepted it, but said the backlash from people who wanted her fired or worse was too much. She also noted that she was uninjured in the match, which is a good thing.
  • Today marks the 62nd anniversary of Les Thatcher’s debut in professional wrestling on July 4, 1960 for Boston promoter Tony Santos. He started with a team that included Pat Patterson. Thatcher trained in Boston and had her first show on July 4 in Blue Hill, ME at the age of 19.


  • Tomorrow night is WWE Night for the Atlanta Braves vs. St. Louis Cardinals game. Fans in attendance will receive a WWE pillow of Austin Riley wearing an Austin 3:16 shirt and WWE title belt.
  • The Cardinals are also hosting a WWE night on 8/16.


  • Israel Adesanya noted in an interview with BT Sports in the UK that he came up with the idea for his Undertaker entry on the Tuesday before the show. At the time, he had no idea Vince McMahon and company would be on the show. He said he already cleared it with the UFC, then on Saturday morning he was told Vince McMahon was coming to his fight. He said that at camp, when he does his wrestling practice, he plays them Attitude Era WWF entrance songs. Undertaker, who is a huge MMA fan, tweeted his approval.
  • Jessica Eye, who has dabbled in independent professional wrestling in the past, said after retiring from MMA on Saturday night, she wanted to get into professional wrestling.
  • Ariane Lipski vs. Priscilla Cachoeira was reported by MMA Fighting for 8/6 in Las Vegas.

Other ratings

  • New Japan posted the Keiji Muto vs. Masahiro Chono final from Sumo Hall’s first G-1 Climax tournament in 1991 on its YouTube page today. The success of that first tournament paved the way for something in its 32nd year beginning in just weeks, among the oldest wrestling traditions in the world. (thanks to Suju Abraham)
  • In yesterday’s update during the ICW No Holds Barred results listing, we listed it as being from Maybee, NY, but it was from Maybee, MI.
