WWE has reportedly signed several new wrestlers to contracts, including two former TNA Impact Wrestling stars. According to a report filed by Ryan Satin, WWE has inked six new performers in total to contracts.

The first signing of note is Thea Trinidad, known during her time in TNA as Rosita. Trinidad has been in the news recently for portraying AJ Lee in the upcoming biopic Fighting With My Family focusing on Paige and the rest of her family. Trinidad is the current girlfriend of WWE’s Austin Aries. She recently was at a NXT television taping, sitting front row during a bout featuring Andrade “Cien’ Almas. Footage of her was not used, but it is speculated there was some thought into pairing her with Almas.

Other wrestlers recently signed by WWE include Gunner (Chad Lail) of TNA fame, Evie Newell, Nixon Newell, Fabian Aichner (former Cruiserweight Classic competitor), and Axel Dieter Jr. of Germany.

0

WWE heads to Baltimore, MD for tonight’s Extreme Rules event. Here are a couple of notes and possible spoilers for tonight’s show:

  • With only six matches announced for the card, the Fatal 5-Way main event is expected to receive a lot of time.
  • While there is no pre-show match announced for the show, it is very possible that they either add a cruiserweight match or R-Truth vs. Goldust.
  • With The Hardy Boyz winning every match heading to their bout against Sheamus and Cesaro, it is possible that they drop the titles.
  • The Drifter is expected to attack The Miz because he “owes him one”.
  • Per betting odds, Samoa Joe is expected to win the Fatal 5-Way. It should be noted that betting odds are not always correct.

Check back here at 7PM ET for our play-by-play coverage of tonight’s show. We will also have a Extreme Rules discussion on our new social media site, RingsideTalk.net.

Bischoff on Wrestling Recap – ‘Table for 3’ with Jim Cornette, Ending the NWO, Debuting as RAW GM, More!

0

Bischoff says that he has received very favourable reviews of his ’Table for 3’ appearance with Jim Cornette and Michael ‘PS’ Hayes from last Monday night. He says that he general consensus is that fans want more, but he’s not sure that he and Cornette have more of those shows in them.

He says that Cornette is funny, articulate and very intelligent. However, he’s very opinionated as well, so that can rub some people the wrong way at points. Before they began taping, Cornette told Bischoff that he was going to ‘come at him’ and Bischoff told him to bring it on because first and foremost he wanted the show to be entertaining.

Bischoff says that he likes Cornette. Sure, they’ve had some differences and they’ll never be best friends, but he’d embrace the opportunity to debate Cornette again at some point in the future.

Bischoff thought that Hayes did a great job as the middle man between him and Cornette during this show. The last time he did a show like this with Hayes, he was so drunk that he could barely talk. Luckily, Hayes was completely sober during this show and even though he dressed like a ‘gay hooker’, he did a great job.

New Match Announced for Extreme Rules

0

Ahead of tonight’s Extreme Rules event, WWE has announced that Kalisto will face Apollo Crews on tonight’s Kickoff Pre-show.

They wrote the following on their website regarding the bout:

Apollo Crews will look to once again represent The Titus Brand tonight when he squares off with Kalisto on WWE Extreme Rules Kickoff, streaming live on WWE Network.

In an effort to prove himself worthy of The Titus Brand, Crews faced off with The King of Flight two weeks ago in a semi-friendly match on Raw. However, when Kalisto overcame Crews, a disappointed O’Neil volunteered to show his protégé how it’s done by going one-on-one with the former United States Champion himself. O’Neil bested his masked opponent with the help of a hand full of tights, which he informed Crews was just the way to showing his man the ropes.

Can Crew make O’Neil happy by besting Kalisto? Find out on WWE Network, tonight beginning at 7 ET/ 4 PT, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.

WWE Legend Vader Announces Retirement from Pro Wrestling

0

WWE Legend Vader announced his retirement from professional wrestling over the weekend on Twitter.

Vader’s last match was in a six-man tag with Keiji Muto & AKIRA against Fujinami, Riki Choshu & Shiro Koshinaka at Korakuen Hall in Japan back in April. Vader passed out after the bout due to an apparent head injury he suffered during the bout.

As previously noted, Vader indicated last November he only had two years to live due to suffering from congestive heart failure. He has been lobbying for a WWE Hall of Fame induction before he passes.

WWE Extreme Rules Results – June 4 2017

0

Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of WWE Extreme Rules 2017!

Let’s start at the top for a change: the Kick-Off show begins at 7:00 PM EST, and the main show starts at 8 PM. The Kick-Off show will see another rematch between Kalisto and Apollo Crews, with Titus O’Neil in Apollo’s corner. Originally the pre-show match was supposed to be the mixed tag match but it was changed just today. So join us for the Kick-Off show and get the results of this match and the rundown of the entire card.

Two tag team matches take place on the main card tonight, one of which is The Hardy Boyz Vs Sheamus & Cesaro for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships. This match will take place inside of a steel cage and the stipulation is fitting because things have gotten personal between the two teams. The other match is the mixed tag team match with Rich Swann & Sasha Banks against Noam Dar and Alicia Fox. This match was on the pre-show but was moved to the main card, as far as I can tell. The match doesn’t really have a stipulation, besides the genders, but it will look to settle the score once and for all between Noam Dar, Alicia Fox, and Rich Swann.

Dean Ambrose puts his Intercontinental Championship on the line against The Miz on tonight’s show. This match is kind of the opposite of every other on the card tonight, as Dean Ambrose will lose his title if he gets disqualified against Miz. This stipulation was put in place because The Miz claims Ambrose cannot win matches without getting crazy, and also to differentiate it from the rest of the card. The odds are already stacked against Ambrose, but there is a strong chance Elias Samson may interfere and attack The Miz – reflecting his “eye for an eye” lyric on Raw this past week. Let us know who you think will walk out with the gold!

Speaking of gold, Neville stands a strong chance of losing his tonight, as he faces Austin Aries in a submission match. This is the third PPV in a row that Neville and Aries will have gone toe-to-toe and it seems like the chances of Neville retaining are super slim. Aries has been run through the gauntlet time and time again by Neville and TJP, but tonight the odds actually favour him, and the only way to keep things going is for Aries to grab a win against the King of the Cruiserweights.

Alexa Bliss battles Bayley in a Kendo Stick-On-A-Pole match, following one of the worst WWE TV segments in recent memory. Last Monday, Bliss gave us a Bayley, This Is Your Life segment, but what transpired was a lot more like Jerry Springer than The Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection. This left us less-than-excited for the title match tonight, especially considering the gimmick of the match means that there won’t be any use of the Kendo Stick for the majority of the match. I expect this match to be as good as it could be, simply because of how good Bayley and Alexa are, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Bayley take the win!

The main event tonight is the first-ever Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way between Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Bray Wyatt, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns.
