News on Sheamus, Dakota Kai, Chris Jericho, and more

Sep 18, 2022 - by Steve Gerweck

– While speaking on Inside the Ropes, Sheamus was how long he thinks he has left in his Pro Wrestling career. He said “As long as people get excited to see the Celtic Warrior go out there, I’ll just keep going as long as possible. I feel like I have got at least another 8 years in me.”

– According to Dave Meltzer via Wrestling Observer Radio, Chris Jericho was the one who came up with Bryan Danielson getting his ankle hurt and worked over during their AEW World Championship Tournament match last Wednesday on Dynamite.

Meltzer stated that Jericho got the idea for the bout with Danielson from the 1987 match between Randy Savage and Bet Hart. That it seemed to resemble how Jon Moxley dealt with CM Punk’s previously injured foot at AEW All Out is merely a coincidence. It remains to be seen if they play up the ankle issue in the title match and tournament finals next week at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam.

Danielson faces Moxley in the finals of the AEW World Title tournament at Dynamite Grand Slam. The event will be held at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York. The show will be broadcast live on TBS.

Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky challenged Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships on this week’s RAW and ended up winning them. Five days into her reign, Kai took to Twitter and revealed that it’s her longest title reign in WWE.

    “It remains to be seen if they play up the ankle issue…next week.” Well, sure. It remains to be seen based on the technicality that it hasn’t happened yet. It will remain to be seen until Wednesday, when it will be seen because it absolutely will happen. Either Moxley wins a war-of-attrition match with the ankle as a convenient scapegoat, they run “Danielson overcomes the odds” again, or they pull Moxley-Punk on us again and it’s over in five minutes. Not complaining because it will likely be a great match either way (the first two ways, at least), just saying that those are the realistic options. I mean, you could make a drinking game out of how many times WWE announcers said “surgically repaired neck” during a Kurt Angle match for years after it happened, so I think AEW will make some mention of this one a week later, storyline injury or not.
