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

AEW Dynamite Results

A pair of title matches headlined Dynamite this week. SCU looked to get back their tag titles from the (somewhat dysfunctional?) team of Adam Page and Kenny Omega. Nyla Rose got another shot at the AEW Women’s Championship, but could she get past the resilient Riho? All that and a lot more on Dynamite last night. Full results are here:

  • Adam Page & Kenny Omega (c) def. SCU to retain the AEW Tag Team Championships
  • Dustin Rhodes def. Sammy Guevera
  • Nyla Rose def. Riho (c) to win the AEW Women’s Championship
  • MJF def. Jungle Boy
  • Jon Moxley def. Santana

AEW Dynamite Takeaways

The Inner Circle has grown by one. After Jon Moxley got the win over Santana, Chris Jericho’s heel stable came down to beat him down. Some unfamiliar music hit and it was the debut of Jeff Cobb. The former Matanza in Lucha Underground hit Moxley with a Tour of the Islands and established himself as the newest member of the Inner Circle. This gives the group two heavies in Cobb and Jake Hager. Cobb is a heck of a talent and a signing that has been rumored for AEW for a while, so it’s a big get for the company.

Nyla Rose has become AEW Women’s Champion. In a result that surprised many, Rose used her strength to defeat Riho and become the second-ever champion. AEW has had trouble in presenting it’s women’s division so far, as the stories being told in it are falling flat. Shaking things up by having Rose as champion gives the belt a bit of a fresh start. Having babyfaces chase a dominating heel champion is booking 101, but AEW will still have to work hard to maximize it’s roster.

Top to bottom this was one of the tightest Dynamite’s they’ve produced. Every segment hit the mark, and every match delivered something a little different. The tag division and men’s divisions look solid, and the women’s division now gets a bit of a fresh start. Also, Dustin Rhodes still looks amazing in his fifth decade of wrestling.

NXT Results

Last night was the go-home show for NXT TakeOver: Portland. It’s the first TakeOver to stand alone in a long time, but it looks to be a great card. Each and every NXT title will be on the line, and some blood feuds will blow off. Before that, we had one more show. Results from this week are below:

Latest From FPC on SportsCastr


  • Roderick Strong def. Bronson Reed
  • Dakota Kai def. Candice LeRae
  • Johnny Gargano def. Cameron Grimes
  • Lio Rush def. Angel Garza to become #1 Contender for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship
  • Bianca Belair def. Santana Garrett
  • Adam Cole def. KUSHIDA

NXT Takeaways

It was theorized last week in his return that Velveteen Dream’s first target would be Roderick Strong. Well, theorize no more. Dream has made it clear he is getting in the head of Strong by bringing up his wife and airbrushing her onto his tights. Is the Dream the closest thing we’ve had to Rick Rude in years? Yes, yes he is.

While I still think the Broserweights are not long for being a tag team, their pre-taped skits this week about travelling to Portland with the Dusty Cup were excellent. The payoff of getting in the plane was an absolute highlight of the show.

 

The best match on the show was unsurprisingly the Cruiserweight number one contenders match. Angel Garza has an unmistakable “it” factor around him, and he makes every match he has count. Lio Rush will be a good challenger for Jordan Devlin, but Garza really may not be around the Cruiserweight Division for long. There are bigger things for him to do out there.

Teddy Hart Arrested

According to PWInsider, Teddy Hart has been arrested on drug charges. Hart, real name Edward Annis, was arrested in Virginia on Wednesday. He has been charged with possession of a schedule III substance, and possession with intent to distribute. Hart has a court date set for April. This adds to a list of troubles for Hart, who was released by MLW at the end of 2019.
