– In a post on Twitter, Lisa Marie Varon (Victoria/Tara) revealed why she’s not with Impact Wrestling. She was with the promotion, back when they were called TNA, from 2009 to 2013. She said:

– Impact Wrestling has released new videos in which Eli Drake and Matt Sydal hype Impact’s upcoming shows in India.

– In an interview with Wrestling Reality podcast, Rip Rogers spoke about the “…dive” controversy that erupted on social media earlier this month.

He said: “I’m the dumb ass treating it like it’s real and it’s not. If I hadn’t been a wrestler, given my life to this s**t, loved every minute of it and fought for the business like it was real and all that I’d probably just laugh. Who knows what’s right or wrong. Wrestling goes in cycles. I’m trying to lure Will Ospreay out whatever. I got a lot of s**t going on in my f***ing head. Been around a long time. Vader drew a lot of money with this. Always suckers out there buying, so what the hell.

When asked how he’d book a match with Will Ospreay, he replied: “I’m gonna have the guys I train or my adopted son or someone work with him because I’ll say I refuse to get in there because he’s beneath me. He’ll be trying to do all this s**t. They will want to storm the ring. It will be a boring headlock match. Every time he starts to get something going we’ll pull him back down in a headlock. We’ll beat him and leave him for f***ing dead and we’ll get a rematch.
