The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

Impact Results: Throwback Edition

This week’s Impact was the IPWF – the Impact Provincial Wrestling Federation. The show was an old-school throwback episode, with campy gimmicks similar to WWE’s Southpaw Regional Wrestling. It exists outside of Impact continuity, and featured many of the show’s top stars in weird gimmicks and matches. Sexton Hardcastle (Don Callis) and Giuseppe Scovelli (Josh Matthews) called the show, and the results are here (h/t WrestleZone):

  • Rapid Delivery Pete (Rich Swann) def. Rip Rayzon (Ace Austin)
  • Xcessive Force (D’Lo Brown & Fallah Bahh) def. The Hard Workers (The Deaners)
  • Johnny Swinger def. Buck Gunderson
  • Jazz Fitbody (Madison Rayne) def. Agnes Beerheart
  • The Roughriders (Tessa Blanchard, Havok, Alexia Nicole, & Jordynne Grace) def. Bill Ding (Trey Miguel) Jim Nasium (Desmond Xavier) Ray Strack (Zachary Wentz) & Tim Burr (Josh Alexander)
  • Cowboy Colt McCoy (Eddie Edwards) def. Great Gama Singh (Raj Singh) in a Blindfold Match
  • Downtown Daddy Brown (Willie Mack) def. Julian Cumberbun (Ethan Page) (c) with Sonny Sanders (Sami Callahan) in a Loser-Leaves-Town, International Commonwealth Television Championship match.

Captain Joystick (Joey Ryan) made an appearance in the CockPit, and it was fantastic.

NWA Powerrr Results: Re-tape & Recap

This week’s NWA Powerrr was essentially a recap show of the first seven episodes. The show had to be cobbled together from recaps due to NWA commentator Jim Cornette resigning after racist comments, and NWA not wanting to air his pre-taped episodes due to Cornette’s commentary.

Only one match was on the show: an Empty Arena match in which Zane Dawson defeated The Question Mark. The rest of the show included Thunder Rosa’s “Into The Cage” documentary and match announcements for NWA’s Into The Fire. Matches announced include:

  • The Question Mark versus Trevor Murdoch
  • Allysin Kay & Ashley Vox versus two members of Melina’s team
  • James Storm versus Nick Aldis (c) in a two-out-of-three falls match for the NWA Heavyweight Championship

WWE Files Trademark for ECW Pay-Per-View Names

Could WWE be dipping back into the land of extreme for ideas? According to WrestlingInc, WWE filed for two old ECW pay-per-view names on November 21st: CyberSlam and Barely Legal. Both were long-running ECW pay-per-views, with Barely Legal being the first ECW pay-per-view in 1997. That first show featured Terry Funk winning the ECW Heavyweight Championship. No indication yet on if WWE has set plans for when or if they’d run either of these shows. If they do, let’s hope they bring Chainsaw Charlie in for one more go.

NXT Locked Into Full Sail Until 2020

It appears WWE’s third brand won’t be leaving their Florida home any time soon. PWInsider reports (h/t Fightful) that NXT is locked into their contract with Full Sail University through march of 2020. Many have been theorizing WWE will turn NXT into a touring brand to play to larger venues as a way to compete with AEW Dynamite. Whether that happens is yet to be seen. Full Sail has been the home of NXT since 2012, broadcasting most of their weekly television shows and tapings.

One for the Road:

WWE on Fox has a great Twitter account, y’all.
