As noted before, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is currently considering plans to wrestle one more match for his wrestling career. In a recent Highspots’ Sign-It-Live virtual fan signing event, Foley provided an update on his current plans to wrestle one more match. Foley stated “Yeah (I’m looking to do one more match). But I’d have to lose an extraordinary amount of weight and it’s not falling off like I hoped it would. So I’m gonna have to reexamine where I am at a certain point. It’s not about the money. I wanna have a fun match but I am having trouble. I’ve been working out, I feel better, moving better but it’s not showing up as of yet on the scale. So I’m not sure. I’ll have an answer by the beginning of the year… There’s a lot of different options (opponent-wise) to do such a thing.” (Transcript h/t:

In a recent interview with 102.5 The Bone’s Drew Garabo Live radio show, National Wrestling Alliance owner Billy Corgan provided an update on the status of the NWA’s upcoming new reality television series for The CW. Corgan stated “It was definitely a bit of arm-twisting (to get me to film reality series). My partner on the show, who’s a pretty well-known guy in the toy and in the TV space, we had-had a meeting and at the end of the meeting which was extensively to talk about doing some toys for the NWA, he started pitching me the idea of doing a reality show or as they like to say in the biz, an unscripted show… And I said no and I said no for a year and then eventually kind of talked me into it with the idea that I would have control of how it went so, what’s interesting about the show which is coming soon on the CW’s streaming side is that it’s sort of a look between my life in wrestling contracted with my life everywhere else; with my family and obviously The (Smashing) Pumpkins. So, yeah, it’s interesting but it was difficult for me because I’ve been pretty private the last sort of decade or so, after being so open for the first 20 years.” (Transcript h/t:

In a recent interview with New Japan Pro Wrestling’s official website, Zack Sabre Jr. gave his thoughts about Hiroshi Tanahashi becoming the new President of the company. Sabre Jr. stated “The timing (of Hiroshi Tanahashi becoming NJPW President surprised me), maybe, but not the result. I think most of us thought that would be the end goal for someone like Tanahashi, with his tenure as well as his journey through the generations of New Japan. And he’s a very astute and intelligent man. So I definitely thought if there was going to be another wrestler-president, it would be him. It’s just that he takes so much pride in his wrestling that I thought it would be further into the future. So the timing did surprise me, but I think the way he slotted in, there’s nobody more equipped for the job. I think there’s more avenues for a free flow communication between the office and the wrestlers now and not two separate groups in a way.
