WON Preview (June 21, 2021): WWE SummerSlam & Hell in a Cell notes, NXT TakeOver: In Your House review

June 21, 2021 Observer Newsletter: WWE SummerSlam & Hell in a Cell notes, NXT TakeOver: In Your House review

Updates on the WWE PPV shows heads up the new issue of the Observer, including proposed main events, ticket sales and the reason for the Hell in a Cell change.

We also update the health situation of Antonio Inoki.

We also run through another Saudi Arabia lawsuit, the details in the suit and the two possible endings including comments from Jerry McDevitt

We also have updated ticket sales for all the WWE shows through early September as well as demand and comparisons with AEW.  We also look at why WWE books NBA buildings and blocks off most of the building while AEW runs smaller buildings.

We also have Dwayne Johnson talking the presidency, Edge creative, Brock Lenar in WWE, new WWE hires, house show changes, Ronda Rousey update, international AEW & WWE ratings, what WWE is looking for in tryout camps going forward, ESPY Award, Titus O'Neil, John Cena movie, vaccines in WWE, Andre the Giant history, WWE injuries, WWE new names, plus the most-watched videos of the past week and WWE market value.

We talk about the decision by New Japan Pro Wrestling to run three Domed stadium shows in the upcoming months and how the Saitama dates preclude them from their biggest named American stars.  We also look at the attempt to run so many major shows on successive dates in July.

We've got full coverage of UFC 263, with poll results, match-by-match rundowns, and the future direction of the top fighters on the show.

We have similar coverage for NXT Takeover, including poll results, star ratings, direction after Takeover, the next two major dates for the promotion, as well as interest level in the show.

We have an update on Don West, the former TNA announcer, as he battles brain cancer.

We go through the Federacion promotion, the latest company to try and make it as a major group in Mexico, what went wrong, and the history of new attempts to go national in that country.

We look at the Stardom Cinderella tournament finals and the main event that has gotten so much talk, Utami Hayashshita vs Syuri, with the background on the two, plus coverage of storylines and direction, match-by-match with star ratings.

We also have the most in depth coverage of the television end. We go more into detail on the ratings than any other source, we have how every segment on NXT and AEW did as well as how it did with different age groups, genders and more, plus a look at all other wrestling shows of the past week.  We look at actually how many different viewers the shows had which is very different from the television number, breakdown of who watches the shows, how they watch, DVR numbers and how long the average fan watches.

Results of the major pro wrestling events of the past week.
