CM Punk To Talk To AEW Stars! HUGE WWE WrestleMania 35 Ending SCRAPPED! | WrestleTalk News

Oliver, come out to play, I showed up for our face to face where are you? Face me you coward! Well he’s not here so I’ll go and find him, I’ll just read this news first though Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News, I’m El Fakidor Laurie Blake

And coming up on this episode of a news beginning: AEW files new Pay per view trademarks, potentially? CM Punk Tweets AEW confirmed?! And a huge WrestleMania 35 match has been scrapped But first some spoilers for last night’s NXT so if you don’t want to know skip ahead in the video On last night’s episode Triple H was in Full Sail to announce that Tommaso Ciampa has had to vacate the NXT Title due to an injury, subsequent surgery and now recovery He said that Johnny Gargano would Main Event NXT TakeOver New York, presumably for being the closest thing Ciampa had to a friend But who would he face? A really rather brilliant five way match decided it between Adam Cole, Matt Riddle, Velveteen Dream, Aleister Black and Ricochet

With the Undisputed Era man picking up the victory with a smartly last shot to Ricochet who had the match won So now it’ll be Cole vs Gargano for the NXT Title match 2 out of 3 falls And if Johnny wins the title here he’ll have proved the apt age old saying if you want something done right you have to wait for your nemesis to injure themselves There was also an update in the episode about Ciampa’s shoulder surgery where we got to see Ciampa going into the local medical facility with his family It was enough to melt the blackest of hearts

Doctors explained the severity of the injury saying “This spinal cord is starting to compress right here, With a hard hit to the head it could paralyze” In an industry where falling on your head is just a casual Tuesday thing that is obviously bad news so the surgery was a matter of urgency And thankfully the surgeons said “Things went perfect, Not good, but perfect” He’s now calling himself the greatest medical practitioner of all time Unfortunately that good news didn’t stop all the hurting for Ciampa

They said the surgery could take up to a year to recover from and he had to watch as his precious goldie was put up for grabs on NXT Tweeting: “A small piece of me died tonight The greatest 237 days of my life Black heart, gold heart, broken heart emojis” I’m not crying, you’re crying, shut up Someone having a better time of things in NXT, despite a bit of a losing streak recently is Kyle O’Reilly

Kyle appeared on Edge and Christian’s Pod of Awesomeness where he revealed that as far as he knows WWE creative have no plans to split up Undisputed Era When asked if the lads would like to make their main roster debuts together Kyle said: “Oh, absolutely I know we all don’t want this thing to end anytime soon I know it’s wrestling Eventually someone’s gonna have to go through the barbershop window right?” “It would be wonderful to eventually go to the main roster as a four-man unit because I think it would be something very unique and very special and it's something that’s not really… a four man group? It hasn't been done in a good while up there so I think that could be really cool and I keep my fingers crossed that we do eventually get that opportunity

” Over to the old blighty side of NXT now as yet another huge match for NXT TakeOver New York has been made official – although we all totally knew it was happening On the show Johnny Saint and Sid Scala made the match between Pete Dunne and all-caps WALTER for the United Kingdom Championship official for the ppv So that match card stands at Johnny Gargano vs Adam Cole for the NXT Championship, Shayna Bazsler defending the NXT Women’s title against Io Shirai, Bianca Belair and Kairi Sane, War Raiders defending their belts against the winners of the Dusty Classic, and although it hasn’t been made official on TV yet, Velveteen Dream vs Matt Riddle for the North American championship If they can squeeze a Keith Lee vs Dominik Dijakovic, Dijakovic? Dijon mustard then I’d be a happy bunny While WWE has been getting it’s ducks in a row for Mania weekend, over at AEW they’ve been trying to own the very concept of ducks

OK maybe not, but according to PWInsider Cody Rhodes has been filing for quite a number of trademarks, including Bash At The Beach, Battlebowl and Bunkhouse Stampede All three were listed under ‘Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests Entertainment services in the nature of a wrestling club; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer;” None of the titles have been previously trademarked but Dusty Rhodes had a hand in their creation He also filed for the trademark ‘Prince of Wrestling’ under the description “Entertainment services, namely, live appearances by a professional wrestler and sports entertainment personality” Could this be a new name that Cody intends to go under in AEW? Or is he filing the trademark on behalf of someone else on the books? Did he just like the sound of it and get into a bit of a trademarking groove? Hard to tell But Cody did respond to all of this stuff coming out with a Tweet that said: “I’d turn off the google alerts on trademarks

They’re personal and most aren’t intended for AEW I’ve filed/claimed over 50 the last few months I’m just trying to get some of Dad’s cattle back That’s the story” But Cody getting the cattle back didn’t stop people having a cow man

Pro Wrestling Eve Tweeted the American Nightmare as they have been using the BattleBowl name as a January tradition in their promotion “Hey @CodyRhodes Read you've put in a trademark app for #BattleBowl, we've kinda made that a January tradition in EVE and we'd really like to keep the cease & desist letters we've received to the 1 WWE sent us for #SHEvivorSeries Mind looking the other way next Jan? Cheers Peace fingers emoji” To which Cody said ‘I don’t mind at all Have a great show

’ Wrestling promotions getting along Disgusting hippies –ADBREAK– But it’s not just the names of events that AEW has reportedly been hoovering up, it’s people, and there’s another one to add to that list of prospective signees Dave Meltzer, he’s not been signed, he’s reporting on it He said that UK independent scene performer Sadie Gibbs has signed with the company

The 26 year old has a background in gymnastics, track and field and CrossFit and has recently competed in Stardom All Elite has not officially confirmed Gibbs’ signing and there is no word on when she will debut with the company But if she is signed she joins the likes of Brandi Rhodes, Britt Baker, Nyla Rose, Kylie Rae, Bea Priestley, and Penelope Ford And also CM Punk? I heard his name so that’s him to AEW confirmed But seriously you guys

CM Punk announced on Monday that he would be appearing at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo and would be joined by a number of indie wrestlers including Matt Jackson of the Bucks of Youth, Kenny Omega, Marty Scurll and representatives from Pro Wrestling Tees The post itself was quickly followed by tweet replies from Matt and Nick with Matt saying: ‘let’s sit down and have a diet pepsi’ And Nick saying ‘let the rumours begin’ Kind of takes the fun out of it when it’s all so knowing Not even going to speculate now, it’s rubbish But also… CM Punk to AEW confirmed

Even though he did say yet again that he doesn’t have any interest or intention of returning to pro wrestling And apparently WWE doesn’t have any interest or intention on sticking to plans Although this one sounds like we dodged a bit of a bullet According to PWMania WWE’s creative team have been having second thoughts about the Raw Women’s Championship Match at Mania 35 As if the Charlotte’s in the match, Becky’s outta the match, hotswapping wasn’t a dead giveaway

However the site is reporting that creative had initially intended for the match to finish much like the ending to Evolution where Rousey defeated Nikki Bella, walked up the ramp and celebrated with the entire Women’s Roster They say that Mania match would have finished with Lynch winning the Raw title and then emotionally hugging Rousey and Flair in the middle of the ring Stephanie McMahon would then come out and take the credit for inventing women Sorry old habits Steph would arrive and bring the entire women’s roster with her who would give all three competitors a round of applause to end Mania 35 on a heartwarming note But with Rousey’s recent heel turn, which wasn’t planned heading into February, creative no longer think it’s a good idea to end Mania in a big love in

Hopefully Lynch beats down both Charlotte and Ronda, stands tall, just on her own, centre of the ring, the motherflipping Man Right, well that’s the news Time to go out and find Oli for this face to face, but first I better change my shirt to a black one to look moodier, and wear glasses to scare him with my intelligence and wear what I wore yesterday so he’s unsettled by my smell —— Thank you for watching and thank you to all of the Patreons scrolling away beneath me, you are all honorary Fakidors, even if you don’t want to be Click the thumbs up, subscribe and leave a comment, but do it over on ScreenStalker because soon everything will be Fakidor
