WWE/Impact Meeting Details, Crown Jewel Title Match, Hogan Update

WWE and Impact Wrestling have been rival promotions for over a decade, which is why it was interesting to learn that Impact officials visited WWE headquarters earlier this week and met with several prominent figures in WWE. According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the meeting reportedly involved discussions about WWE using the Impact tape library that the promotion currently owns. This goes against PWInsider’s original report stating that the meeting did not involve discussions of the tape library. WWE has used footage from Impact for some recent specials on The Hardy Boyz, so the usage of more Impact footage could help increase revenue for the promotion. Given that several key wrestlers from Impact’s early days now compete in WWE, there is plenty of material for WWE to use in future specials if the company lands a deal for some of Impact’s footage.
The rivalry between AJ Styles and Samoa Joe became personal from the very start when Joe dared to involve Styles’ family in the matter. Joe has desperately tried to win the WWE Championship from AJ Styles, and the two of them will face off once again at the Super Show-Down event on October 6th. In a new report from Ringside News, it was mentioned that the WWE Championship match after Super Show-Down will not be a singles match, but rather a Fatal 4-Way match pitting Styles, Joe, Daniel Bryan, and The Miz against each other for the title. Daniel Bryan and The Miz will compete at Super Show-Down with the winner earning a shot at the WWE Championship, but this report would seem to indicate that both wrestlers will earn the title match regardless of the winner in that match.
Hulk Hogan and WWE continue to remain distant from each other at the moment, but could that all be changing very soon? Hogan was already re-instated into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year and he apologized to the WWE roster after his leaked sex tape contained footage of him using several racist slurs. According to PWInsider, the company may now be ready to have “The Hulkster” make a televised return to WWE for the first time in over three years during the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia on November 2nd. Saudi officials reportedly wanted past WWE stars such as Hogan at The Greatest Royal Rumble show earlier this year, and the company is now said to be considering bringing in Hogan for their next show in the country.
