MONDAY NEWS UPDATE

Bryan and I will be back tonight talking Raw and all the latest news. You can also send in questions for tonight's show to mailbag@wrestlingobserver.com

Raw tonight has announced Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair for the title to open the show. The NFL game against Raw is the New York Giants vs. Kansas City Chiefs, two teams that are below .500 for the season but also have big fan bases. Raw is lucky no World Series game is tonight.

Regarding the Friday night ratings, both Smackdown (1,032,000 viewers, 0.29 in 18-49) and Rampage (623,000 viewers, 0.25 in 18-49) did well against what was up to that point the most-watched baseball game of the season Friday night. Smackdown won 0.35 to 0.34 with men 18-49 and 0.22 to 0.15 in women 18-49. Rampage did win with 18-34 overall 0.17 to 0.15. Rampage went head-to-had with the Smackdown replay that did 278,000 viewers and 0.09 in 18-49.  We will have a lot more on this tonight.

Danhausen noted that he was both a broken tibia and fibula and noted this will cost him serious money with doctor bills.  

New Japan starts both its junior heavyweight and tag team tournaments on 11/14 at Korakuen Hall.  Because they are working in the U.S. and the quarantine, that means Jeff Cobb, Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii, Jay White, Will Ospreay,David Finlay and Juice Robinson will not be in this year's tag team tournament.  

Regarding the date for the first TNT special, the 1/8 date, which is the same date as Impact's Hard to Kill PPV, is the date.  

Matt Tremont was hospitalized in the burn ward at a New Jersey hospital after his explosive barbed wire match last night in Trenton, NJ against Atsushi Onita and said to be in great pain. Onita lit a board on fire and threw Tremont into the board. His gear caught fire from this. The show only drew about 300 fans.
