The first shots in the next big wrestling war may have already been fired. We discuss the news everyone is talking about regarding the WWE pulling newly signed U.K. talent from events that were to be streamed on FloSlam, and what this might mean for the future of wrestling in the region. Both Dave Meltzer and PWInsider’s Mike Johnson have major articles this week on the battle for the U.K market.
But first, we examine the major coverage on, and reactions to, the death of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka from Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, and Bruce Mitchell in the PW Torch.
Know Your Sheet has WWE news, plus news from TNA Impact, ROH, New Japan and much more.
