I have a friend who works for HOG, so I'm able to hear a lot of "insider" stuff. Chris is, unfortunately will never get signed. He's burned too many bridges with being so vocal against higher up office staff all over. He's got a bad reputation.
My local wrestling store has started to have M&G again. I've been able to meet Molly and Gallows and Anderson. The owner of the store said that masks are required, which is great. There have been some people bitching since they think that wearing masks ruin the pictures because they can't show off the people they've met. The owner of the store has said it's up to the talent if they want to do pictures without masks, but they have to start on. When I met Molly, she told my daughter that she can do the picture with or without the mask, and my daughter wanted to keep the mask on (that's kind of big since she's Autistic and usually hates wearing anything extra on her body). It made me happy that my daughter chose to keep the mask on.
It takes a lot to genuinely surprise me after 26 years of fandom but I was genuinely surprised to see Anthony Greene leave Limitless Wrestling as champion. I was 99.9999999999999% sure he was going to drop it to Ashley Vox in his indy farewell match and that would have been great since they have had one of the best rivalries in the promotion’s history.
On the other hand, this is rare case where I am perfectly fine with a guy leaving the indies not putting anyone over. Anthony Greene has been Mr. Limitless since Day 1 and has done almost everything you can do for the company. If anyone deserves to leave with his head held high and his hand raised then it is him. Hope he has a great run in WWE.
Honestly, I hope Limitless waits until crowds to return to determine how they crown their next Champion. It seems virtually impossible to build a new top person in a crowd less environment (see Drew McIntyre and old heel Eric Young) They were belt-less for a long time and they don’t have to rush
Beyond Wrestling's 2020 Tournament For Tomorrow will stream on IWTV LIVE from Atlantic City, New Jersey on Sunday, November 8 at 1pm EST. The tournament has been a launching pad for the careers of many of the wrestling world's biggest stars and takes shape in a different form every year.
To sort of continue me and @Big Beard Booty Daddy 's conversation on the state of tag team wrestling in 2020 from another thread...Beyond Wrestling Tournament for Tomorrow this year is going to be a one night, single elimination tag team tournament.
(that is assuming we'll still be allowed to have indy wrestling shows next month)
