When you go to work, you are kept on your toes. It’s exciting. I’ve been coming to the ThunderDome for the last two months doing Main Event.

  • With Mexico City moving down to yellow status on its COVID-19 monitoring system, CMLL will run its first Arena Mexico show with fans in attendance since March 2020. The show is taking place on Friday, May 21 and will be limited to 500 tickets sold with COVID-19 protocols in place.
  • On the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Kris Statlander spoke about returning to Dynamite after recovering from her torn ACL: “When I first got signed, we [herself & Orange Cassidy] were doing a whole lot of skits on BTE and everything and we were told it would never happen on TV. This is gonna stay on BTE just because of, you know, personal reasons and whatnot. Not our reasons but it was just something that wasn’t wanted for TV and then, the fact that how we made me joining them my actual return is still incredibly mind-blowing to me. How often do you see a woman wrestler return in a men’s main event gimmick match to team up with them and save them? When does that happen? Never does but it was kind of a huge moment for me but I didn’t realize. I was just like, ‘Oh, I’m just doing a goofy ass spot right here,’ but it’s to make amends with friends that I hadn’t been here for this whole time and stuff so I think it was really cool how it all actually happened.”

Thank you for being my FAMILY!!!”
