Hello one and all, welcome to your weekly irrelevant round-up of the week’s hottest stories in pro wrestling. As always, I, “Smart” Mark Blake, have scoured the internet to find the biggest, strangest, and most interesting stories. So kick back, put your feet up and feast your eyes on this week’s Pro Wrestling Post Week In Review for 12/16/18!
The End Of The Elite Era In RoH
As the latest Ring Of Honor PPV – Final Battle – came off the air, The Young Bucks and other members of “The Elite” made an impromptu curtain call in the middle of the ring and appeared to say goodbye to the RoH faithful.
It’s common knowledge that the contracts for Cody, The Young Bucks, and Hangman Page expire at the end of this year and Final Battle is RoH’s last show of the year. What better way to say goodbye?
With Nick Jackson, Cody, Page, Marty Scurll, Frankie Kazarian, Scorpio Sky and Christopher Daniels in the ring, Matt got on the mic and spoke to the fans –
“Don’t worry, this isn’t gonna be some emotional farewell speech or anything like that. My brother and I began in this company over 10 years ago. Can you believe that? And this past two year run has been the greatest time of my life”
He then went on to thank Ring Of Honor, “everyone in the back”, and fans.
“Everyone in this ring, all of you (he pointed at the crowd here)…..we’re all Elite, right? The timer is ticking! Something is about to go down! I don’t know what. I hope you watch our YouTube series, “Being The Elite”. I’ll tell you this. New York City. WE WILL BE BACK and we’ll see you then!”
Was that a little hint to a possible All Elite Wrestling show in the near future? Well with no RoH contract to worry about, I’m sure we’ll hear more about this in the new year, and I for one can’t wait!
Joey Janella Spring Break 3 News
Joey Janella and GCW (Game Changer Wrestling) are once again combining over WrestleMania weekend to put on the third annual Joey Janella’s Spring Break. But with tickets selling out for the show on Friday April 5 in under four minutes, Joey went onto Twitter to announce a SECOND night the very next day.
I have looked forward to these shows each and every year, so hearing that a second night is now announced has made me even happier. I’m hoping for some more major fantasy booking from Joey…..
