Change to House of Horrors – Wrestling, Inc.

After initially being hyped as a WWE Championship match on television, the updated match preview for Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt’s House of Horrors Match on WWE.com has no reference to the WWE Championship being on the line. Something to keep an eye out for on television in the coming weeks.

War of the Worlds Update – PW Insider

Impact Merges with Global Force – Cageside Seats

On last night’s Impact, Karen Jarrett announced that Impact Wrestling has merged with Global Force Wrestling, which was apparently still a thing.  We’ve already seen Cody Rhodes wearing the GFW Nex Gen Championship on Impact, as well as the returning Magnus with the GFW Championship in the last two weeks, and next week the GFW Women’s Championship is set to be defended on Impact.  Additionally, after an interview with Magnus last night, it appears they are building towards a unification match between Magnus and Impact World Champion Bobby Lashley. Maybe then we’ll finally get belts that don’t say “TNA” on them?

Broken Hardys Update – Cageside Seats

Dave Meltzer is reporting that the Hardys are still attempting to clear up the legal issues between themselves and Anthem/Impact Wrestling so the “Broken” gimmick can be used on WWE television. According to Meltzer, WWE realizes the Attitude Era act the brothers are currently running has a limited shelf life and there’s more money to be made with stories and merchandise with the brothers being #Broken.

Impact/AAA Partnership – Pro Wrestling Sheet

Mexico’s AAA and Impact Wrestling announced more details on their new partnership yesterday.

Additionally, AAA talents will be at Impact’s Slammiversary and Impact talents will be at AAA’s Triple Mania.

Bennett & Kanellis – With Spandex

Speaking of Impact, two former talents are reportedly heading to WWE. Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis have reportedly signed with the company and will be headed to SmackDown. The Miz & Maryse heading to Raw is starting to make a little more sense, can’t have two heel power couples on one show.
