News on Some GFW Contracts, GFW & Sexy Star, Making of Usos Theme
Saturday, September 9, 2017
Some news on the expiration dates on several different Global Force Wrestling talent contracts have been revealed. PWInsider reports that Alberto El Patron has about 6-8 months left on his current contract. He has been suspended ever since an incident in an airport earlier this year with his fiancee Paige, but he is rumored to be making a comeback at November's Bound for Glory pay-per-view. The report mentions that the contracts for Low-Ki and Eddie Kingston are set to expire in October. Low-Ki decided to leave the company a few weeks ago, but there have been conflicting reports over whether he left over the creative decision of his character of for financial reasons.
Global Force Wrestling also controversially decided to mention the real life incident involving Sexy Star and Rosemary that took place at AAA's Triplemania show. Rosemary was injured by Sexy Star when she really locked her in an armbar out of frustration during the match. PWInsider now reports that the company will not be mentioning the match at all from now on. The company is building towards an inter-promotional feud between themselves and AAA, so they mentioned the match as a way to add heat to the eventual storyline. However, AAA and Sexy Star were both criticized heavily for the events that transpired, so GFW may not be too keen on mentioning it anymore since AAA is still one of their business partners.
One of the bright spots of Smackdown lately has been the current Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Usos. When the duo turned heel last year, they completely reinvented everything about themselves, and they even changed their entrance music. In their 'This Week in WWE' show on the WWE Network, the company showed footage of the brothers working with CFO$ to create their new theme. The two worked together to add lyrics to the instrumental music, and talked about how their initial nervousness disappeared as they continued working on the song. WWE uploaded a video of the segment of the show onto their Twitter account, which can be found below.
