Wrestling Rumors

It’s almost unimaginable that, in the heat of a championship-clinching game, a player could be thinking of promoting a wrestling match scheduled for a month later. But Manley believes that was exactly what happened. On an episode of “WWE Untold” that explored the bout, former WCW president Eric Bischoff seemed to confirm Manley’s point of view. “I knew I couldn’t talk to Dennis and Karl about doing anything on the court during play that would help promote WCW,” Bischoff said, “but there was probably conversation or two — wink, wink — where someone said, ‘Hey guys, if you get the opportunity off the court during a stoppage in play or during a timeout to have any kind of animated conversation between the two of you — if you get my drift — that would only help.”
All Elite Wrestling (AEW) today announced the signing of Satnam Singh, an international phenom best known as the first-ever player from India to be drafted by the National Basketball Association. The 7’3” Singh was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks in 2015, and now brings his natural athleticism, charisma and daunting stature to AEW. Singh follows in the footsteps of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, who squared off alongside Jade Cargill in a mixed tag team match against Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet on “AEW: Dynamite” in March. Singh will begin training at the world-class, Atlanta-based Nightmare Factory, run by QT Marshall and Cody Rhodes.
