Foley on His HIAC Appearance, New BFG Match, Hennigan's Status
Friday, September 14, 2018
It was announced on Monday Night Raw earlier in the week that WWE Hall of Fame Mick Foley will be at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view this weekend to serve as the referee for the Universal Championship match between Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman. During an interview on Busted Open Radio, Foley talked about his appearance at the event and how it all came about. Foley said that WWE contacted him about an appearance long before they filmed his new standup special, but he chose to wait until the Hell in a Cell event in order to hype his appearance 20 years after his infamous Hell in a Cell match against The Undertaker at King of the Ring in 1998. Hell in a Cell takes place on the WWE Network this Sunday night.
Impact Wrestling's biggest pay-per-view event of the year is now just around the corner. The main event for the show has already been announced, but a brand new match has just been made official for the card. During last night's episode of Impact, it was confirmed that Sami Callihan, Jake Crist, and Dave Crist of oVe will be taking on the team of Pentagon Jr. Fenix, and Brian Cage in a six-man tag team match. Callihan and Pentagon have certainly had their fair share of issues in the past, but it appears now that some of their allies will be getting involved now. Be sure to stay tuned for all of the latest updates and information as new matches for Impact's Bound for Glory event continue to be announced.
John Hennigan (also known as Johnny Mundo/Impact and formerly known as John Morrison) has been entertaining fans in just about every single promotion that he has competed in over the past few years. After several months of competing in Impact Wrestling, it was announced a while back that Hennigan will be receiving a shot at the Impact World Championship when he faces Austin Aries at Bound for Glory, but an attack later left him injured. Hennigan did legitimately receive an injury during a photo shoot last month, so some fans have wondered if Johnny will even be able to compete at Bound for Glory on October 14th. On Impact last night, Hennigan provided an update on his status for the event.
