(STINGER: WWE) WWE is heading into the first RAW of 2022 with a new WWE Champion. Brock Lesner dethroned Big E - pinning him with the F5 in the main event of Saturday's Day 1 pay-per-view. Lesnar was added to the WWE Title match - making it a 5-Way - after his original opponent, Roman Reigns, was pulled from the show after testing positive for COVID-19. Becky Lynch is still the RAW Women's Champion. She pinned Liv Morgan with the Manhandle Slam at Day 1. The Usos beat King Woods & Kofi Kingston to retain the SmackDown Tag Titles. Team RK-Bro held onto the RAW Tag Titles by beating the Street Profits. Also on the show…Edge pinned The Miz after Beth Phoenix arrived on the scene to run off Maryse. Drew McIntyre beat Madcap Moss. But after the match, Moss and Happy Corbin attacked McIntyre backstage and Pillmanized his neck with a steel chair. WWE tweeted late Saturday night that McIntyre “suffered a cervical neck strain with severe contusions.” On the kickoff show, Sheamus essentially won a 2-on-1 match against Cesaro & Ricochet. Sheamus' partner Ridge Holland was knocked out of the match after a rough landing by Ricochet. Holland suffered a broken nose.

Homicide is the #1 Contender for the GCW World Title currently held by Jon Moxley. Homicide earned the shot by winning a battle royal at GCW's “Die 4 This” show on New Year's Day.

He was a steady presence on the U.S. independent scene for nearly two decades…and had memorable runs in Ring Of Honor and TNA. Rave struggled with drug addiction. His health took a dramatic downturn just over a year ago when an infection led to the amputation of his left arm…and in October, BOTH of his legs. He leaves behind two children. Jimmy Rave was 39. (STINGER: WWE) The WWE Championship match at the Day 1 pay-per-view is now a 4-Way: Big E defending against Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens…and Bobby Lashley. Lashley earned his way into the match by beating all three of his Day 1 opponents in separate matches on last night's Raw. There were plenty of shady circumstances involving all three wins, but hey…he got them. Another match added to Day 1. Liv Morgan will get another shot at Becky Lynch and the Raw Women's Championship. Lynch attacked Morgan last night, crushing her arm between the ring steps and ring post. Also last night…Otis pinned one-half of the Raw Tag Champs Riddle. One-half of the women's tag champs Queen Zelina pinned Rhea Ripley with a rollup in less than a minute after Ripley got distracted by Nikki ASH getting superkicked by Carmella. Bianca Belair pinned Doudrop with a 450 splash. But Doudrop laid out Belair after the match. Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode beat United States Champion Damian Priest & Finn Balor. Ziggler pinned Balor with the ZigZag after Balor got distracted by Austin Theory taking a selfie on the ring apron. The RK-Bro-nament final did NOT happen last night. That was to pit the Street Profits against Rey & Dominik Mysterio. But WWE announced there are injuries on BOTH teams…and the match is now pushed back until December 27th. During a Twitch stream Monday night, Matt Hardy said WWE may have “jumped the gun” when it released Jeff Hardy after he walked out on a house show match in Texas earlier this month. Matt Hardy confirmed Jeff was released after he refused to go to rehab. Matt openly speculated that the results of Jeff's drug test following the incident will come back clean. (STINGER: AEW) Ring Of Honor Pure Champion Josh Woods is on tonight's AEW Dark. He'll face Shawn Spears. We'll finally see Mei Suruga in action inside an AEW ring. She and Emi Sakura take on Riho & Ryo Mizunami. Marina Shafir makes her AEW debut against Kris Statlander. Plus, Chuck Taylor vs. Ryan Nemeth…and Daniel Garcia and 2point vs. Dark Order's Evil Uno, Colt Cabana & Alex Reynolds. On last night's Dark: Elevation…Tony Nese beat Alex Reynolds. Tonight's NWA Powerrr has…The Hex defending the NWA Women's Tag Titles against Mickie James & Kiera Hogan. Plus, Dirty Dango & JTG vs. Aron Stevens & Kratos.. (STINGER: ROH) Ring Of Honor's Final Battle got the bulk of the attention - but there was also an episode of ROH TV over the weekend. Sledge beat PCO in a Falls Count Anywhere Match…EC3 beat Eli Isom…and Miranda Alize beat Chelsea Green after a distraction by The Allure. (STINGER: New Japan) New Japan holds its finals in the World Tag League and Best Of The Super Juniors tournaments on Wednesday. But it's all overshadowed by Katsuyori Shibata's promise to make a major announcement on the show. The Best Of The Super Juniors final has Hiromu Takahashi vs. YOH. Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI face EVIL & Yujiro Takahashi in the World Tag League final. IWGP World Heavyweight Champ Shingo Takagi…and Kazuchika Okada will be back in action Wednesday…on opposite sides of an undercard tag match. That's JUST Pro Wrestling News for Tuesday, December 14.

(STINGER: WWE) A major title match is set for tonight's RAW - Becky Lynch defending her Women's Title against Liv Morgan. Also being promoted for tonight - WWE Champion Big E vs. Kevin Owens inside a Steel Cage. That's a non-title match. NXT WarGames last night. The main event saw “Team 2.0” win the men's WarGames match when Bron Breakker pinned the NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa. Johnny Gargano was part of Ciampa's team. He addressed the crowd after last night's show went off the air. (Gargano After WarGames) That clip from WWE's social media. Dexter Lumis returned during last night's main event to chase off Trick Williams. The women's WarGames match ended with Cora Jade getting the win for her side by pinning Jayce Jane. Imperium held onto their NXT Tag Titles by beating Kyle O'Reilly & Von Wagner. Fabian Aichner pinned O'Reilly. After the match, Wagner tried to attack O'Reilly, but Kyle was a step ahead. Anyway, this team is DONE and O'Reilly and Wagner are now set to clash in a Steel Cage Match on Tuesday's NXT. Getting back to last night, Roderick Strong pinned Joe Gacy to retain the Cruiserweight Championship. And Cameron Grimes won his Hair vs. Hair Match against Duke Hudson. NXT announced its New Year's Evil special for Tuesday, January 4th. (STINGER: AEW) Tonight's AEW Dark: Elevation has the return of Anthony Ogogo. He's in an 8-man tag alongside the rest of The Factory. Also on tonight's episode, Dustin Rhodes, Lee Johnson & Brock Anderson vs. PRETTY Peter Avalon, Cezar Bononi & JD Drake… Brian Pillman Jr. vs. Serpentico... And Emi Sakura & The Bunny vs. Abandon & Ryo Mizunami Mei Suruga tweeted Sunday she is returning to Japan...after about a month in Emi Sakura's corner in AEW. She said she will be back as soon as she gets the chance. “The Pope” Elijah Burke says he is “100% well” after he was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Atlanta following the NWA's Hard times 2 pay-per-view Saturday night. Burke was apparently injured during a brawl at the end of the show, after Matt Cardona showed up to confront Trevor Murdoch, who had just successfully defended the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship against Mike Knox. (STINGER: New Japan) Fans are buzzing about what could be next for Katsuyori Shibata. New Japan announced early Monday that Shibata “has a major announcement that he would like to deliver directly to the fans” during the Best of the Super Juniors & World Tag League finals coming up on December 15th. In The Best Of The Super Juniors tournament, SHO's lead has dwindled to a single point. He was defeated Sunday by Robbie Eagles...keeping SHO at 12 points. IWGP Jr. Champ El Desperado and Hiromu Takahashi are both now at 11 points after wins on Sunday...and another four wrestlers, including Eagles, are sitting at 10 points. The World Tag League resumes on Tuesday...as the teams look to dislodge a five-way tie for the top spot in the standings. Tetsuya Naito & SANADA face the Guerrillas Of Destiny in the main event. Plus, Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI vs. Bullet Club's Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens. On Saturday night's New Japan Strong… Josh Barnett got a submission victory over Alex Coghlin. Bullet Club's Jay White & Hikuleo beat Alex Zayne & Yuya Uemura. Hikuleo pinned Zayne. Lio Rush & Adrian Quest beat Bateman & Misterioso. Quest scored the pin. And JONAH made his Strong in-ring debut with a win over Lucas Riley. Back in Japan… Konosuke Takeshita beat Yuki Ueno over the weekend to win DDT Pro's "D KING GRAND PRIX” tournament. Kento Miyahara & Yuma Aoyagi are the winners of All Japan's Real World Tag League. In Mexico… Hijo Del Vikingo is the new AAA Mega Champion. He won the vacant title Saturday night. Also on that show, FTR retained the AAA Tag Titles in a Ladder Match against the Lucha Brothers...and it was announced that Taya Valkyrie will return to AAA to challenge Deonna Purrazzo for the company's women's championship.

Listen and subscribe at www.JustProWrestlingNews.com I'm Matt Carlins and this is JUST Pro Wrestling News for Friday, October 22, 2021. This update is brought to you by IndyWrestling.us. (STINGER: WWE) Expect some fallout from Thursday's Crown Jewel pay per view on tonight's SmackDown. Roman Reigns is STILL the Universal Champion coming out of Crown Jewel. He took advantage of a knocked-out referee, hit Brock Lesnar in the head with the title belt and pinned him to retain the gold. That title belt was slid into the ring by Paul Heyman, but who it was intended for was left...deliberately vague. Tonight's SmackDown is also the first WWE show with the new post-Draft rosters now in effect...and the situation involving the two women's singles championships on WWE's main roster remains a bit of a mess. Becky Lynch is still the SmackDown Women's Champion. She pinned Sasha Banks with a rollup while holding the bottom rope to win a 3-Way over Banks and Bianca Belair. So, Lynch is now officially part of the Raw roster, despite holding the SmackDown Women's Title...while Charlotte Flair is now on the SmackDown roster while holding the Raw Women's Title. We still don't know what WWE is going to do about this. Getting back to Crown Jewel...Big E hit the Big Ending and pinned Drew McIntyre to retain the WWE Championship. Xavier Woods is the King Of The Ring. He pinned Finn Balor with a springboard elbow drop. Zelina Vega is the first winner of the Queen's Crown tournament. She pinned Doudrop with a Code Red after about six minutes of action. Goldberg pinned Bobby Lashley to win their No Holds Barred match...after Goldberg speared Lashley off the stage. Edge beat Seth Rollins in their Hell In A Cell showdown. Mansoor beat Mustafa Ali. After the match, Tarek Hamdi, an Olympic silver medalist for Saudi Arabia in taekwondo, showed up and knocked out Ali. Randy Orton & Riddle beat AJ Styles & Omos to retain the Raw Tag Titles. Styles took the pin. The Usos beat Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander on the kickoff show. On Thursday's NXT UK… Jordan Devlin pinned Joe Coffey with the Devlin Side in the main event. Aleah James pinned Xia Brookside with a diving sunset flip from the second rope. Xia was NOT happy about this result. Jack Starz & Dave Mastiff got a DQ win over Symbiosis after Eddie Dennis attacked Starz with a steel chair. (STINGER: AEW) AEW's World Title Eliminator Tournament begins on tonight's Rampage...with Orange Cassidy vs. Powerhouse Hobbs. The TBS Championship Tournament bracket will be revealed. Also, AEW Women's Champion Dr. Britt Baker vs. Anna Jay… And Andrade El Idolo vs. Pac. (STINGER: New Japan) The biggest story to come out of Thursday may be one we didn't expect - the surprise in-ring return of Katsuyori Shibata. It happened just after the intermission of New Japan's G1 Climax Final show. Just about everyone was stunned to see Shibata walk out for an unannounced exhibition match against Zack Sabre Jr. Wearing little more than shorts and sneakers, the two grappled their way to a time limit draw after a mere FIVE minutes of action. This was NOT a hard-hitting match...but for fans of Shibata...it was something...and the hope that there may be more to come. Shibata was forced into retirement by a head injury, suffered during a match back in 2017. The G1 Climax final itself...was a bit of a buzzkill. Kota Ibushi injured his right arm when he missed a Phoenix Splash. It was ruled that Ibushi could not continue...and Kazuchika Okada was declared the G1 winner. (STINGER: Impact) Impact Wrestling last night put the final pieces in place for Saturday's Bound For Glory pay per view. The Good Brothers will defend the Impact Tag Titles in a 3-Way against BOTH FinJuice AND Bullet Club's Chris Bey & Hikuleo. The challenging teams met last night - but the match ended in a double pin...after two referees ended up in the ring and both counted a pinfall. The six wrestlers who will meet on Saturday to decide the first Impact Digital Media Champion came together for a 3-Way Tag Team Match last night. John Skyler & Tenille Dashwood beat Crazzy Steve & Chelsea Green and Jordynne Grace & Fallah Bahh. Dashwood pinned Fallah Bahh after hitting him with the Spotlight Kick. Also last night...Mickie James pinned Savannah Evans with her signature DDT. Trey Miguel beat Alex Zayne. AND Brian Myers kicked Sam Beale and Manny Lemons out from under his Learning Tree. W. Morrissey beat Jake Something on Before The Impact. (STINGER: ROH) It's all Violence Unlimited vs. The Foundation on this weekend's Ring Of Honor TV. Jay Lethal goes one on one with Homicide. Plus, Tony Deppen vs. Rhett Titus...and Brody King & Chris Dickinson vs. Jonathan Gresham & HOT SAUCE Tracy Williams. That's JUST Pro Wrestling News for Friday, October 22.

This show starts with a fantastic discussion of the infamous Heroes of Wrestling PPV—the reason Kyle Rieger asked for this week as a $25 Patreon pick—and folks, if you haven't watched this show, you need to, as it's one for the ages. Of course, we talk about Jake Roberts, but there is so much other stuff that was crazy as well, both on camera and behind the scenes, so this is a can't miss segment. We also talk about the death of Gorilla Monsoon and the tragic career ending injury suffered by Darren Drozdov, including how the WWF really dropped the ball in many ways with how they handled the injury publicly on SmackDown two days later. Other things discussed are the pro debuts of Wataru Inoue, Katsuyori Shibata, and Hiroshi Tanahashi in New Japan, Ray Gonzalez becoming “Mr. Raytings” in WWC, Tammy Sytch's infamous sit-down interview on ECW's TNN show, Jerry Lawler coming up short in the Memphis mayoral election, Jesse Ventura's Playboy interview, then, finally, World Championship Wrestling. There, the top story is the immediate aftermath of Vince Russo & Ed Ferrara joining the promotion, including all of the details as to how it went down.

Listen and subscribe at www.JustProWrestlingNews.com I'm Matt Carlins and this is JUST Pro Wrestling News for Monday, August 16, 2021. This update is brought to you by IndyWrestling.us. (STINGER: WWE) Tonight's Raw is the last one before SummerSlam on Saturday. Randy Orton is set to go one-on-one against one half of the Raw Tag Team Champions Omos. Plus, Drew McIntyre in a 2-on-1 match against Veer and Shanky, and this match will have implications for McIntyre's SummerSlam match against Jinder Mahal. If McIntyre wins, Veer and Shanky will be banned from ringside. If Veer & Shanky win, McIntyre's sword “Angela” will be banned for the SummerSlam match. Raw is also promoting a face-to-face confrontation between WWE Champ Bobby Lashley and his SummerSlam opponent Goldberg. (STINGER: New Japan) New Japan's Super Junior Tag League resumes Monday - but it's overshadowed by last-minute changes to the card. This all started with IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi and BUSHI missing Sunday's show. New Japan said both had fevers and they are awaiting the results of PCR tests. So, as a precaution, Shingo and BUSHI are off of Monday's show as well, along with six other wrestlers who had contact with them: Tetsuya Naito, SANADA, EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi, Gedo and Dick Togo. Gedo and Togo are part of the Super Junior Tag League - but because they are off of Monday's show a win will be awarded to Ryusuke Taguchi & Master Wato. Here's the outlook for the rest of the team in their penultimate matches of the tournament. The team of Jr. Heavyweight Champ Robbie Eagles & Tiger Mask can secure victory in the tournament with a win Monday over the Jr. Tag Champs Taiji Ishimori & El Phantasmo. But a win for the Bullet Club side puts them in position to take the tournament. El Desperado & Yoshinobu Kanemaru need a win over Roppongi 3K to stay alive in the tournament. Roppongi 3K are already eliminated. New Japan's Resurgence in Los Angeles Saturday night was a very eventful show. Will Ospreay returned...and brought along a version of the IWGP World Heavyweight Title, calling it the “real” championship belt. Ospreay vacated the title back in May. He said he is now medically cleared, but will NOT be part of this year's G1 Climax tournament. In fact, Ospreay said he will not return to Japan until Shingo Takagi is declared an “interim” champion. Ospreay eventually retreated after he was confronted by Karl Fredericks, Clark Conners and TJP. The Guerrillas Of Destiny made a surprise appearance at Resurgence...to confront the Good Brothers, who left before any punches could be thrown. The Good Brothers had just beaten Jon Moxley & Yuji Nagata, pinning Nagata with a Magic Killer. Hiroshi Tanahashi is the new IWGP U.S. Champion. He dethroned Lance Archer. Jay White pinned David Finlay with the Bladerunner to retain his NEVER Openweight Title. Tomohiro Ishii was out after the match to challenge White. Earlier, Ishii pinned Moose with a brainbuster. Yuya Uemura - on the first day of his excursion PINNED Danny Limelight to win a 10-man tag. After the match, Katsuyori Shibata strolled out to personally welcome Uemura into the LA Dojo. Juice Robinson pinned Hiluleo with a rollup. Then, got a chokeslam for his troubles. New Japan announced before the show that Brody King was unable to compete due to “unforeseen circumstances”. King later tweeted that he's “okay”. The next big show for New Japan in the U.S. will be in San Jose on November 13th. Jay White, Jon Moxley and Tomohiro Ishii are all announced for that show. Back in Japan, a champion in Pro-Wrestling NOAH now holds the top title in ZERO1. GHC National Champion Takashi Sugiura pinned Masato Tanaka on Sunday to win the ZERO1 World Heavyweight Championship. (STINGER: AEW) Tonight's AEW Dark: Elevation has Joey Janela vs. Alan “5” Angels...the Lucha Brothers vs. The Hybrid2...Diamante vs. Julia Hart...and Kiera Hogan's AEW debut against Hikaru Shida. Kenny Omega is STILL the AAA Mega Champion. He beat Andrade El Idolo at TripleMania XXIX Saturday night. Ric Flair was in Andrade's corner...and at one point during the match, Flair was firing chops on Omega. Also on the show, Impact Knockouts Champ Deonna Purrazzo beat Faby Apache to take AAA's women's title...the Lucha Brothers retained the AAA Tag Titles...and Psycho Clown defeated Rey Escorpion in the Mask vs. Hair main event...leading to Escorpion being shaved bald. (STINGER: Impact) The next #1 contender for the Impact World Championship will be decided at Emergence...in a 4-Way: Moose vs. Chris Sabin vs. Sami Callihan vs. Ace Austin. That show is an Impact Plus exclusive coming up on Friday. Also on that show, Christian Cage will defend the Impact Title for the first time...against Brian Myers.
