Sasha Banks AEW Tease! WrestleMania to UK?! MAJOR WWE Injury Updates! | WrestleTalk News June 2019

Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk STACKED
News, I am Chopper Pete Quinnell. We’ve got a packed show for you today, including
an update on Lars Sullivan’s serious injury, Sasha Banks teasing links with AEW, and WrestleMania
potentially coming to the UK! It’s about bloody time. Before we get into it though, make sure to

which today is: Would you like to see WrestleMania in the
UK…or anywhere that isn’t the US or Canada for that matter? But first let’s talk small scale as Orange
Cassidy has revealed some brand new merch, and befitting of his low-effort gimmick, the
merch is equally, and hilariously, low effort. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wear a shirt
promoting C:UsersDesktopNewFolderstufNewFolderNewfoldershirtbaybeeprowresteesNewfolderfreshly-squeezed7.gif Cassidy tweeting on the matter, saying “I
definitely didn’t do this right”. Or maybe you did, Orange, if that is your real name. But don’t worry, if you want some merch
but t-shirts aren’t your thing, or you can’t fit into some right now because, I don’t
know, let’s say your pregnant, WWE has the answer, as they’ve now released some amazing
Adam Cole merch, including ADAM COLE BAY BAY…on board bumper stickers.
While WWE’s merchandise department takes a fair amount of flack for some of their designs,
sometimes they just do something right, and this…this is one of those times. If there was an award for best WWE merch,
I’m sure this would be thrown into the mix. Speaking of awards… ESPN hosts an annual award ceremony dubbed
“The ESPYS”, where they hand out awards for some of the top sporting achievements
of the year, including Best Performance, Best Viral Moment, Best Athlete in Sport, Best
Athlete in a League, and now…Best WWE Moment. The relationship between ESPN and WWE has
grown exponentially, with ESPN covering more and more of WWE’s product in recent times.
However a Best WWE moment category is a bit weird when there’s no Best NFL, NBA, or
NHL moment. It’s like the Slammys, but like, sort of legitimate this time? Perhaps WWE
created it themselves just so they could give themselves an award and harp on about it on
commentary. Yeah it’s definitely that. Here comes the Big Dog, former Universal Champion,
former WWE Champion, former Intercontinental Champion, former United States Champion, ESPY
award winner, WrestleMania main eventer…yeah I can see it. Now we’ve got some UK themed news, as it’s
now been confirmed that WWE will be leaving Sky to be broadcast on BT Sport beginning
in January 2020. This is actually a pretty huge deal as WWE has been partnered with Sky
for over 30 years, but things have been sour between the two companies since the introduction
of the WWE Network. Now WWE will join the Premier League and UFC
on BT Sport, but they are taking a pretty massive cut in potential viewership, as according
to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Sky is currently in “8.56 million” homes,
whereas BT Sport is currently only in “2.19 million” homes. And the UK news keeps on coming, as we may
be getting a WrestleMania in the UK?! What?! WWE recently issued a marketing study regarding
future locations for WrestleMania 37 and 38, with the idea of gauging interest in various
cities. The locations included “Chicago, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, Santa Clara, Houston,
Dallas, Philadelphia, Toronto, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, and interestingly, London.” UK fans have been asking for a WrestleMania
for years, and it’s interesting it’s being considered now bearing in mind the logistics
of having to pull off an event like that with time zones and broadcasting being considerably
more difficult. It’s also notable that Tampa is being considered,
as WrestleMania 36 will already be in Tampa, and the only other really noteworthy name
on the list is Jacksonville, as this is the defacto home of AEW. The president of AEW,
Tony Khan, and his family, own the Jacksonville Jaguars, or Jag-wars if you’re American,
so their home base is Jacksonville. Could WWE be planning a takeover of Jacksonville,
much in the same way Ring of Honor and New Japan took over Madison Square Garden, the
spiritual home of WWE, earlier this year? Having said that, GIVE ME WHAT I WANT. I want
a WrestleMania. Pretty please and thank you. Something else I want is Tommaso Ciampa to
make a full recovery, and boy, does it sure seem like he’s heading that way. Ciampa took to Twitter yesterday to post an
update, and in a video, you can see Ciampa training and looking like a beast, because
that’s what he does. The best moment came though, after he puts down his dumbbell and
goes to walk off, just turns to the camera and says “f*** Adam Cole”, with the tweet
also including the BayBay hashtag, just in case you didn’t pick up on the subtleties
of him not liking Cole. It looks like Ciampa will be gunning for Goldie when he comes back
then, no messing around. I love Ciampa. Get well soon buddy. Someone who might need to take some tips on
recovery from Ciampa though, is Lars Sullivan, who over the weekend was reported to have
a picked up a knee injury, which might have been more serious than originally thought.
Now though, it’s been confirmed to be very serious. Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling
Observer are reporting that Lars Sullivan underwent successful surgery for his knee
injury yesterday, but could still be out for 6-9 months, which is a whole bunch longer
than originally anticipated when it was a week. The injury hasn’t been confirmed by WWE
as of yet, however the injury was reportedly picked up by doing something incredibly routine
and was a complete fluke, which is truly unlucky for Lars. 6-9 months would put Lars out until
December, or around WrestleMania 36 season, so perhaps a Rumble return is on the cards
for him. Someone who definitely won’t be returning
to the ring though, is former Divas champion, Nikki Bella. On a recent appearance on The Tonight Show
with Jimmy Fallon, Nikki confirmed that she will never wrestle again due to health problems,
despite her and Brie wanting to return to fight for the women’s tag team championships. “I really wanted to go back and fight for
the tag titles and you know I’ve always had my neck issues and after neck surgery
it hasn’t been okay. So I feel like I needed to get that check-up before we went back for
the tag titles. And it came back, I herniated the disc above where I had surgery, I have
all this inflammation around the metal, and I have a cyst on my brain. So they were like,
‘you’re done, no more, you’re out.’” It’s unclear whether this is WWE doctors
or her own personal doctors talking, but Nikki is being kept out of the ring for her own
safety, which is very much a good thing, as fun as a Bella Twins return for the women’s
tag titles would be, and yes I’m being 100% serious when I say that. Granted, it should have only been for a one
off and not a semi-permanent return like them just hanging around after SummerSlam last
year, but alas, it now cannot happen at all. Wishing Nikki the best if she needs any further
treatment or medical attention regarding her health. Someone else who won’t be returning to WWE
any time soon, though for very different reasons, is KENTA, the former Hideo Itami, who recently
showed up in New Japan Pro Wrestling and will be participating in this year’s G1 Climax
alongside former WWE colleague, Jon Moxley. KENTA recently conducted an interview with
Weekly Pro Wrestling, a magazine publication in Japan, and from the sounds of it, he doesn’t
exactly have glowing reviews of his time in WWE, especially during his time on 205 Live. According to Post Wrestling’s translation
of the interview, KENTA said that he was “excited to move to 205 Live”, but things began to
deteriorate, he felt like he “could never find Hideo Itami’s character” due to a
lack on in-ring time, and that he was “defanged” on 205 Live, and “no good memories come
to mind”. That is some pretty scathing analysis when
no good memories can come to mind about an entire run in a company. Hopefully he can
find the happiness he needs elsewhere in New Japan. Someone else who might be looking to find
happiness elsewhere, man I am killing these segues today, is Sasha Banks, who’s been
on rocky terms with WWE since WrestleMania 35, not appearing on TV since then and reportedly
being in a stalemate with the company over creative frustrations. Banks began following
AEW and its representatives after Mania 35, and now she’s done one better than just
following. Banks has added fuel to the speculative fire
by retweeting a tweet from AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes, which in and of itself
isn’t necessarily a huge deal, however the tweet in question was just a link promoting
AEW’s next show, Fyter Fest, which takes place on June 29, so in essence, Banks just
promoted a rival promotion’s show. While of course, this is just speculation
and can be drawn out in any number of ways, it’s curious timing considering a major
announcement for the women’s division has just been made for AEW’s All Out on August
31 in the video that Banks retweeted. On the road to Fyter Fest Episode 3, it was
revealed by Brandi Rhodes that, much like Bret Hart unveiled the men’s championship
at Double or Nothing, the women’s championship will be unveiled at All Out later this year.
While the details of its appearance, who will be doing the unveiling and how the inaugural
winner will be decided are yet to be announced, perhaps this is what has made Sasha Banks
so keen to promote the event. With her being unhappy with her current WWE
situation, there’s no doubt she might be eyeing some other options, and with a women’s
belt in AEW now an option, perhaps that’s where she’s looking to go once her contract
expires. There’s no guarantee that even if she could
eventually join AEW, she would become the women’s champion straight away, with other
talent such as Britt Baker, Bea Priestley and Nyla Rose all vying for the title. Those
are some pretty stacked names. Does the Spider-Man: Far From Home end credits
reveal the future of the MCU? Press the video to my right to be taken to ScreenStalker to

100 thoughts on “Sasha Banks AEW Tease! WrestleMania to UK?! MAJOR WWE Injury Updates! | WrestleTalk News June 2019

  1. Would i like to see Wrestlemania in the UK? Well i refused to spend more than £5 on a WWE house show in Aberdeen this year… so that's a no, it's not worth the money.

  2. I have a GREAT idea for a location for RASSLEMANIA!!
    WReSTLEMANIA IN…………………………….. SAUDI ARABIA!!!!

  3. wouldn't actually care about a wrestlemania in London now! maybe 10years ago but its shit now they can keep it in America!

  4. I could be wrong but I think that if WWE wanted to go to Jax, the only place they could go would be the football stadium where the biggest tennant to said stadium is the Khans football team. I would guess they have a say in the stadium being of use to WWE.

  5. How long have they been around and they're just now talkin about doin a wrestlemania in u.k thats kinda sad but it is wwe after all

  6. They propose London when WWE is at its worst that it has ever been? Gosh the irony, can you IMAGINE if a wrestlemania could happen back in ATTITUDE ERROR?undertaker entrance in his prime,Austin glass shatters, rocky can you IMAGINE????

  7. I don't care where they have WrestleMania…as long as they don't have it here. 🤣 It's an embarrassing reflection of what it used to be.

  8. Sasha retweeted that because she's friends with private party. You know … Trying to help put over her friends to her huge following. You guys really need to stop looking so much into things. It's becoming embarrassing.

  9. No malice to Nikki as nobody should have injuries like that, but why would anyone look forward to her and her sister returning to the ring? Nikki was ok in the ring, but hardly amazing, and Brie was bad originally and even worse when she came back last year.
    People were sick of seeing them before they left and sick of seeing them when they returned. I could not imagine anyone being excited about yet another return where they get pushed over everyone else

  10. Sasha probably retweeted because she knows the tag team promoted in the video. She even appears with them in the video

  11. Hideo itami was a channel changer who couldn't stay healthy. He should shut up before he breaks something important on his body.

  12. Alot of good news! Bellas are hoooorrible, so good riddance. Lars is a fucker so fuck him. Good stuff allaround. Karma injury^^

  13. I hope no one hires Banks. Who wants a person who is obviously not a team player. Acting like a baby because she lost a belt. Get up grow up and get back to work

  14. Pete needs a shave man! Or at least design the beard, don't have a neck beard. Come on mannnn

  15. I mentioned this before and I'll say it again, Wrestlemania in other countries would be great. Mania could go to Canada again and Mania in the UK would be good. Also Mania in Mexico would be a nice touch.

  16. Does UK want to sit through 10 hours straight of Raw wait I mean Wrestlemania? I really don't think so.

  17. Your channel is turning into clickbait bullshit. I get you want clicks, but I immediately click away once I realize its just more shit.

  18. Can’t wait for JR to say “Good Gawd is that? Is that? … It is!!! It’s the Legit One! Basha Sanks!!!!”

  19. Yes….Wrestlemania in the UK would be triumphant….and they could have an NXT UK: Takeover London to kick it off….Epic!!

  20. Has anyone else gotten annoyed with Sasha Bank's STFU already and leave the cryptic messages BS just leave already for fucks sake

  21. Hideo itami/Kenta because he was injury prone he returns from a injury the gets injured again he's like the Asian Kevin Nash

  22. summerslam in uk. Wrestlemania in canada(good chance to bury grudge with Owen Hart wife and get Owen into hall of fame)

  23. I wish they would just can Sasha. She's not that good anyway. Go to AEW so I don't have too see her anymore…

  24. Why aren't woman headlining the main event of All Out? I think the Woman's title should be the top title in AEW.

  25. Wrestlemania needs to be in Minnesota Indiana Cleveland Cincinnati Missouri San Antonio San Diego buffalo Seattle Vancouver Détróit Pittsburgh but the product got to become better

  26. How could Kento have any memorable moments with WWE when he was injured for most of his run with them?!

  27. No wrestlmania should be in north America having it over seas would make it hard for the U.S. to watch and after all this is a American company.

  28. I bet Vince ultimately wants to sell WWE to Disney but could not make the family friendly content fun for the core fans.

  29. Kenta should be thankful that WWE took care of him with all his time out with injuries. That man was barely healthy his whole time with the company.

  30. No keep wrestlemania away from UK and Saudi Arabia UK fans make a 3 hour raw bad let alone a 5 hour mania

  31. Nobody:

    AEW: we now can confirm that WrestleMania is coming to AEW and cutting ties with WWE.

    Dave Meltzer: can you believe it and entire pay-per-view gained sentience and is joining the Revival promotion even though they are not really rivals because it hasn't been confirmed by me yet.

  32. So first off can we say Chopper Pete bro you have been kicking ass lately man like congratulations man I love seeing you come to the channel and the way they did it and you know offering you the full-time gig live on the air its been a great Cinderella story I love it I can't wait until like you're like taking on Ollie to see who can rule Supreme Over wrestletalk. Okay now as far as Sasha Banks am I the only one that thinks she's kind of acting like a spoiled fucking brat like I get it that you can be upset you don't like that they took the belt off yeah you can even be mad that you had to lay down at WrestleMania to the iconic's I get it but this is really coming off like I'm being a spoiled brat I'm thought I was going to have a long title run and since I don't get that like an undefeated long title run then I'm out I mean like that's Austin taking his ball and leaving right?( sorry about the long-ass run-on sentence.) I mean we don't know if they would have lost the iconic's and then won the belt back at the next pay-per-view and then had another two or three you know had a two-month run and then lost nominated by the end of the year or by next WrestleMania they could have been a two or three time tag team champion and yet the first time they lose shootout I don't know I just don't like the way that that sounds man that don't taste right to me.
