JERICHO REVEALS REASON FOR HIS ENTRANCE THEME CHANGING
Chris Jericho recently responded to a fan, explaining why his entrance theme has been changed for the replay of his recent match at Dominion.
Live on the night, Jericho walked to the ring with his bands hit Judas playing. Jericho would face Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Unfortunately, Jericho would lose clean in a fantastic match.
When fans tuned in to watch the replay they were surprised when some random rock music played instead.
When Chris was asked about the change in music he replied that he had no idea why it happened. Chris also stated that NJPW had the right to the music.
UNDERTAKER VS GOLDBERG RUMOUR KILLER
Following their disastrous match at WWE Super Showdown this past weekend, many sources were stating that Goldberg and The Undertaker got into a shouting match post-match.
However, PWInsider reports that people in the company who were in Saudi Arabia for Super ShowDown quickly shot that rumor down when asked about it.
205 LIVE FINISH DID NOT GO TO PLAN
The match between Jack Gallagher and Chad Gable on this weeks 205 Live ended on a suprising count-out finish when Jack Gallagher could not answer the count of ten.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the referee was not supposed to count the wrestlers out. Gallagher was supposed to jump into the ring at the count of nine but got caught right as Mike Chioda called the ten count. The referee treated as if it was a shoot since Gallagher did not beat the count.
TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE FOR STOMPING GROUNDS
Plenty of seats are still available for the first-ever WWE Stomping Grounds pay-per-view, according to Ticketmaster.
A majority of tickets are still available, ranging from $27 to $652.
KILLER KROSS REVEALS ALL ON IMPACT WRESTLING RELEASE
Killer Kross has spoken out in regards to why he asked for his release from Impact Wrestling, and claims his bosses suggested he get a second job after denying the request.
PW Insider reported that Killer Kross was looking to get a new six-figure deal with guaranteed money. Impact, however, countered with a restructured three year contract worth well below that.
Kross told the ‘Wrestling Perspective Podcast’:
If you get to a job and you are told that something you’re looking for is not available and then you come to find out six months later that that’s not true, it has been available and other people have it … you can imagine that you’d be a little disparaged.
I personally really don’t really need much. But it’s just different when you have people to take care of, circumstances change in life. You can’t anticipate it.
Being told to go get another job by your job, that’s f*cked up. You’re struggling to make ends meet taking care of people, and the job that you can barely afford to have tells you to go get another job so you can keep that job. It’s like working at a corporation being told to go work at McDonald’s. It’s a weird feeling.
Killer Kross also revealed that Scarlett Bordeaux still lives at home with her mom and that she has to work a side job in order to make ends meet. Kross said that Scarlett’s situation with Impact is “much worse” than what he is currently going through.
