SUNDAY NEWS UPDATE

Image placeholder title

We have two weekend shows. Garrett Gonzales and I went through the news of the week and Bryan and I did a show last night on the AEW new TV deal plus Smackdown and UFC from the weekend.

As far as what made Google trending lists this week from Combat Sports, Paul Felder, who announced his retirement on last night's UFC show was No. 9 for today as of this morning. For Saturday, the UFC show was No. 9 at 200,000 and Fast & Furious 9 (with John Cena) was No. 19 at 50,000. On Friday, Dave Bautista was no.l 7 a 200,000 and Manny Pacquiao was no. 19 at 50,000.

Lots of very high praise for today's Hana Kimura Memorial show which broadcasted in English on FITE.  

Recording artist Lalo The Don debuts his new single/video "Til The Break of Don'' which he filmed in Tokyo just before the COVID19 pandemic. Prior to his tour, he was alerted that the Netflix Terrace House Tokyo star was a fan of his music noting that her favorite tracks included songs like Caterpillar and Get Low 4 Me remix which featured Nicki Minaj. Also at the end of the video is a reminder for fan's to donate to RememberHana.com the organization created by Hana's mother Kyoko Kimura. Here are the key social media links.

Also, the Don Kernodle story in the current issue has a lot of interesting notes about wrestling in the 70s and early 80s including the story of the Steamboat & Youngblood vs. Slaughter & Kernodle feud which is one of the most important tag tam programs in history.

Today is the 22nd anniversary of the tragic accident that took the life of Owen Hart at Kemper Arena in Kansas City. John Pollock has a great piece on the final hours of the life of Owen Hart.
