COLT CABANA SIGNS WITH AEW
Following his shock appearance at The Buy-In for AEW Revolution, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that Colt Cabana had signed with the company.
Khan announced this during the post-Revolution media scrum. Khan also said Cabana will be able to work for other promotions with Khan’s approval. He appeared during the Buy-In pre-show, coming to the aid of SCU following their loss to the Dark Order.
Cabana previously appeared on AEW Dark back in December to do commentary after his contract with Ring of Honor expired earlier in the month.
He’s been appearing with the NWA and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
AEW ANNOUNCES ‘BLOOD AND GUTS’ DYNAMITE SPECIAL
During last nights Revolution, All Elite Wrestling announced that the March 25th episode from Newark, New Jersey will be titled ‘Blood and Guts’.
The highlight of the program will be a closed cage match comprising of two rings, similar to the now WWE-trademarked ‘War Games’.
CHRIS JERICHO TO TOUR WITH FOZZY SOON
After losing the AEW Title to Jon Moxley at Revolution, it appears that the former ‘Le Champion’ will have a secondary focus in the coming months.
Jericho’s band Fozzy have have a U.S tour starting up in April. The dates beginning on April 16th, running through the early part of May.
It does not interfere with his AEW schedule, however, as none of his tour dates fall on a Wednesday. So, it’ll probably be the case that Jericho will be performing double duty.
EFFY AND MANCE WARNER REPORTEDLY BACKSTAGE AT AEW REVOLUTION
According to Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam.net, both Mance Warner and Effy were backstage at last night’s AEW Revolution.
This wasn’t the first time that Mance Warner was reportedly backstage, as he was apparently backstage at a recent Dynamite taping.
Effy had worked earlier in the day for Black Label Pro’s event just outside of Chicago in Indiana.
