Sami Callihan Wants A Shot At Brian Cage’s X-Division Championship

After becoming the first person to pin Brian Cage at Bound For Glory on Sunday, Callihan made his intentions to challenge for the X-Division title clear. He did so after Cage had dispatched of title challenger Rich Swann in the night’s main event.

Taya Doesn’t Respect Tessa Blanchard

Taya cut a promo on Tessa Blanchard after she defeated Katarina this week. In reference to Blanchard dragging the ring apron into the ring before she took the Road to Valhalla from the challenger. Had the referee not been out of position putting away the ring apron when Taya hit her finisher, the result from Sunday could have been very different. Taya said that due to the champion’s tactics at the PPV, she no longer respects her.

“I’m just more disappointed more than anything,” Valkyrie said after her match with Katarina. “ I really respected Tessa and after that, I don’t.”

Allie Might Be Possessed

Despite telling Kiera Hogan backstage that she is fine, Allie looks and acts differently since she’s been back from the Undead Realm. She continued to attack Alisha Edwards after defeating her this week. Allie had to be brought back to reality by Hogan before she stopped.

Jordynne Grace Is On Her Way To Impact Wrestling

Thick Mama Pump is on her way to Impact Wrestling. A short vignette of her silhouette appeared this week on Impact Wrestling. You can check out Grace in this inter-gender match against Joey Janela. The match is from this year’s Northern tournament hosted by Smash Wrestling in Toronto.

Tessa Blanchard Comments On Austin Aries Situation

The Knockouts Champion appeared on Busted Open radio this week. She spoke on the situation regarding Austin Aries’ post-match antics at Bound For Glory.

“I’m not really sure what Austin was trying to accomplish. Brian said it before, I think if the roles were reversed and Austin was sitting in the locker room watching that happen, I’m sure he would feel disrespected, I’m sure he would not be so happy. He would have some things to say and some questions. So if the roles were reversed, I’m sure he would be in the same position as the whole locker room kind of felt, I think.”
