Plans for Ambrose, Fish Update, Pentagon & Fenix Pulled From Show
Friday, August 10, 2018
Dean Ambrose has been brought up in reports quite a bit over the past few weeks as the belief is that he is just about ready to make his return to WWE programming. After missing several months of action due to a triceps injury that he received late last year, Ambrose is reportedly set to make his return to the ring shortly after SummerSlam. Prior to the injury, Ambrose and Seth Rollins had been teaming up once again and were even Raw Tag Team Champions. According to Cageside Seats, there are still plans for Rollins to continue his current feud with Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre, but Ambrose could be reuniting with "The Kingslayer" once again to help even the odds for his best friend and Shield brother.
The Undisputed Era's Bobby Fish continues to make occasional appearances on NXT with the other members of the group, but he has not wrestled in months due to a leg injury that he received earlier this year. In the meantime, Roderick Strong has joined the group and has taken Fish's place as one-half of the NXT Tag Team Champions with Kyle O'Reilly. According to the newest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Bobby Fish is still recovering and will most likely continue to be out of action for at least the majority of the year. The earliest timeframe for his return right now suggests that he could be back in November or December, but there is always a possibility that it could end up taking slightly longer than that.
New rumors posted online recently claim that WWE is currently looking at signing some key MLW talents, most notably Lucha Libre stars and real-life brothers Pentagon Jr and Fenix. It was reported earlier this week that the two of them have told promoters that they cannot confirm that they will be available for certain dates in 2019, and the brothers have now also just been pulled from an upcoming MLW show on October 4th. The two Lucha stars currently work for MLW, Lucha Underground, Impact Wrestling, and will be appearing at All In on September 1st. With WWE now interested in signing the two of them to contracts, it will be intriguing to see if this recent MLW cancellation will lead to more dropped indie bookings in the near future.
