Posted On July 29, 2020
Even though Roman Reigns does not look ready to return to the ring just yet, multiple other roster members are rumored to be returning on Raw tonight. Nia Jax and Braun Strowman are among the two biggest names that are reportedly returning tonight after missing a few weeks of action. However, another name has just been added to the list. PWInsider claims that Samoa Joe is currently backstage for tonight’s Raw event in Baltimore. Samoa Joe has been out for several weeks in order to heal some nagging injuries, including a knee issue and a broken nose. We’ll find out if Samoa Joe is ready to step back in the ring during tonight’s episode of Raw.
PWInsider recently reported on a number of different names that have been negotiating about possibly joining Impact Wrestling in the future. One person on that list, New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Don Callis, already confirmed that he will not be joining the company. The Wrestling Observer also claims that a deal with Tessa Blanchard is not official. Representatives from Anthem reportedly told the Observer that they do not have a deal with Blanchard at the moment. Impact was also said to be in negotiations with Blanchard’s boyfriend Ricochet as well, but sources also told the Observer that he turned the company’s contract offer down.
Impact Wrestling will be hosting their Bound for Glory pay-per-view event in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada this Sunday night. The event is frequently positioned as the biggest event of the year for Impact, and it looks like the show is officially set in stone. The show will feature an X-Division Championship match between Trevor Lee, Dezmond Xavier, Matt Sydal, Petey Williams, Garza Jr., and Sonjay Dutt. A three-way match between Sienna, Gail Kim, and Allie for the Impact Knockouts Championship will also take place. The show will also see a street fight between OVE and LAX for the Impact Tag Team Championships. Lastly, the show will be headlined by Eli Drake defending Impact Global Championship against Johnny Impact. Alberto El Patron is also scheduled to return on the show.
