Call it a reunion? There are a lot of wrestlers in the world today and it can be difficult for all of them to find a place to go. While WWE and AEW are often the goals for several wrestlers, there is not room for all of them there. That is where the independent promotions come in though and that is the case again, with several former WWE stars finding a new home.
The new Wrestling Entertainment Series promotion has announced its debut card, which will take place on June 4 in at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham, England. The show will feature four title matches and several former names from WWE. Wrestling Entertainment Series is owned by former Raw Tag Team Champions the Authors of Pain, who will be wrestling on the show under the name Legion Of Pain. Here is the full card:
* World Championship Match: Adam Scherr vs. Alistair Overeem
* World Women’s Championship Match: Lina Fanene vs. CJ Perry
* World Tag Team Championship Match: Legion of Pain vs. Westin Blake & Steve Maclin
* Killer Kross vs. JONAH vs. Samuray Del Sol
* World Women’s Tag Team Championship Match: Madison Rayne & Tenille Dashwood vs. Deonna Purrazzo & Chelsea Green
* Dean Muhtadi vs. Lince Dorado
* Mike Bennett vs. Biff Busick
* Dirty Dango vs. Levis Valenzuela Jr
Opinion: All things considered, that does not look like a bad show. I’m not sure how well it is going to go but they do have some names that wrestling fans might be interested in seeing. Only a few of them are not former WWE stars so there is certainly some name value in there. Maybe this works out, but if nothing else, it is nice to see some wrestlers getting a few pay days out of the new promotion.
What do you think of the card? What would you like to see on a future show? Let us know in the comments below.
