Charlotte to Win Title at Starrcade? New Impact Champ, Jarrett
Monday, November 13, 2017
After being moved to Smackdown earlier this year, most fans assumed that Charlotte Flair would capture the Smackdown Women's Championship within weeks. Surprisingly, she has not held the championship yet, but that could be about to change very soon. Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya with the latter's title on the line has already been announced for the upcoming Starrcarde live event in North Carolina. According to Cageside Seats, the plan may be for Flair to defeat Natalya for the title at the event. Starrcade takes place on November 25th, and the company currently has absolutely no plans to broadcast the event on the WWE Network at all.
Impact Wrestling has been hosting some television tapings in Ottawa over the past few days, and those shows have seen a number of title changes already. From the looks of it, another title switch can be added to the list now. It is being reported by fans who attended the tapings that Pro Wrestling NOAH star Taiji Ishimori recently defeated Trevor Lee to win the X-Division Championship for the first time in his career. Pro Wrestling NOAH is currently partnered with Impact Wrestling, so it is possible that Taiji could defend the title in both promotions. There is currently no word on when the match featuring the title change is expected to air on television.
It's been a rough few weeks for Jeff Jarrett, but he has reportedly been doing better since checking himself into rehab a few weeks ago. Karen Jarrett recently uploaded a photo of herself and her husband meeting for the first time since he checked in not too long ago. Yesterday, NASCAR driver and former Impact Wrestling personality Hermie Sadler informed fans that he payed a visit to Jarrett in rehab. He uploaded a photo of the two of them together on social media. Karen Jarrett responded by thanking Hermie. You can check out the update on Jeff Jarrett's rehab stay from Hermie in some of the tweets that he posted down below:
