Jericho is legit one of the best ever.   He can do it all - be a great face, a great heel, always puts on great matches, great at promos, etc.

Codi Rhoads did an interview with Joe Cronin Show on Tuesday as AEW was in BOSTON. Joe was at the show and next weeks AEW Dark you might baeable hear Cronin yell Back down Janella during the Omega/Janella match.

Either Way Joe asked Codi about AEW Chants at HIAC PPV. Codi mentioned it was flattering and fans just voicing what they want however he wasn't knocking the match itself. He said he knew for a fact one of the wrestlers in the match was legit Concussed (This could explain the stoppage as well. DO to Bray at RAW getting involved after RAW ended one would guess Seth wasn't on TV do to a possible concussion. Right now Seth is one on one with Roman winners brand gets first pick Friday. Either way here's the full interview. Codi and Brandi both talk AEW, Codi talks about the shows coming up, possible mid card title, Brandi talks about the Sensory stuff and women, both talk what they are looking forward too, AEW Chants at WWE PPV,  Stats for wrestlers in AEW, AEW outside the US (Khan big part of London UK and Jericho and Omega being from Canada doing shows up there) and COdi talks about liking people in the buisness coming to him asking for jobs. Talks story of Paul Heyman sneaking into a production meeting as a photographer that Dusty was in and Dusty letting him stay. Tedy Long doing Usher work then ring work to being a ref. Basically goes into he appreciates that kind of will. Another interesting topic early is of people getting into wrestling who weren't already because of AEW and how Codi was surprised they didn't take in more of the old school fans who may have left after 2000-01. Codi also talks Star Trek. With many hats what can they do better.

Always loved Jericho on the mic.  Even after he took the fall to set up the rock for his long history of mic smack.  Great voice for the industry.

I love Jake Hager but good heavens is he a charisma vacuum! He stood there in the ring like a zombie at parade rest formation...it brought back my days in Air Force ROTC in college and how I probably looked. :shudder:

 

I mean, that's what he's supposed to do... be the silent badass enforcer of the group.

interesting stat, Jericho’s the Inner Circle is the first ever faction he’s ever been a part of. Longest stretch of a main eventer not being part of a faction in all major wrestling companies.

Hope they finally do something with Drew. I always thought he had a lot of potential. 

Little surprised Charlotte wasn't a first rounder to Smackdown. Would be interesting if Raw grabs her as well. 

Lastly,  I guess the mens world champions aren't in the draft. Makes little sense, but whatever.

Doesn't mean she'll be on. Plenty of people are drafted on these things with injuries. Banks suffered a tailbone injury and isn't cleared to compete yet

Yet the two women wrestling for the title tonight are undrafted? No New Day? I really don't understand this at all.

:lmao: Draft is so FN cringe.

Not sure what was worse: Stephanie trying to put over Lucha House Party (to crickets) or the Fox Execs congratulating one another for the picks of Luchas/Heavy Machinery :lmao: 

Not to mention they just had a draft (that they never adhered to) 6 months ago.

They already made it cringy as #### before it even started with "You can select the team as 1 pick.....unless you just want one of them" :lmao:

How many weeks til they're crossing wrestlers over shows left and right again? :lol: 

They don't have enough viable women to cover each of these shows and having 2 separate championships.

So Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss are a team...right? :lol: So we're to believe whatever network that took Nikki didn't want Alexa Bliss? 

Edit: Just saw Alexa went "Round 3". Still doesn't make sense for Raw to not also want Nikki Cross with a 3 hour snoozefest to fill.

Cain Velasquez has reportedly signed a multi-year deal with WWE.

Velasquez's new WWE deal is said to be lucrative, according to Mac Raimondi of ESPN. The report noted that the MMA heavyweight has also informed UFC officials of his decision to retire from the Octagon. Cain has been removed from UFC's USADA drug testing pool and from the UFC heavyweight rankings.

As noted, WWE announced today that Velasquez will face WWE Champion Brock Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on Thursday, October 31. It was also announced that boxer Tyson Fury will face Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel. You can read our press conference recap by clicking here and see the updated Crown Jewel card by clicking here.

ADVERTISING

While Cain has signed with WWE for multiple years, Fury's match at Crown Jewel is said to be a one-off for the time being. Fury is expected to return to the boxing ring in 2020 for a fight against Deontay Wilder, a rematch from their December 2018 bout. Raimondi noted that Fury's camp is concerned about a bad cut on his right eye, sustained during his fight against Otto Wallin earlier this month, opening up again in his WWE match. Fury needed 47 stitches to close multiple cuts following the 12-round bout with Wallin.

Cain is leaving MMA with a 14-3 record. He is a two-time UFC Heavyweight Champion.

"This is definitely my focus," Cain said of pro wrestling last week. "My family is into it. They love it. They're super excited. I haven't seen them excited over something like this in a while. It's cool."

Stay tuned for updates on Cain and Fury in WWE.

They already announced it. But I don’t have all the sources you do 🙄. Watch raw and see what match is first Monday

I'm not seeing anywhere this match was announced on Monday. This isn't from a source this is from a wrestling dirt sheet site. 

Ok now they are saying she's wrestling Monday night but no word on if she's wrestling Live events this weekend. The earlier report is from 7 hrs ago btw. Go click on the link and read and then go read this article. Clearly you are just looking at the headline and didn't click on the link there. 

Banks vs Becky to start RAW Monday
