• AJ Styles Wants Top AEW Star In Tonight’s Men’s Royal Rumble 2022 Match
During an interview with Wrestlinginc, former WWE Champion AJ Styles talked about tonight’s Royal Rumble 2022 premiere live event.
Below are the highlights:
On non-WWE stars in the Royal Rumble match:
“I think it’s great, I really do. I think it’s exciting to see Mickie (James) come back and who knows, is she going to wear her (IMPACT Wrestling) Championship, I don’t know? But it’s cool that we are able to do that.
If we can do more of that, that would be great, but I am afraid, and I could be wrong on this, that door may open one way, which is fine. This is a big step, if you think about it. I am looking forward to the Women’s Royal Rumble because of it.”
On a possible appearance in the Royal Rumble match by Cody Rhodes, who isn’t under an AEW contract at the moment:
“Well, I think I read that he said he wasn’t coming back. I don’t know about that. Cody, I am going to call you out man, I don’t know about that one. Because, you’re able to do independents while working for AEW, right? So what’s the difference?”
On if he’d like to see Cody in the Men’s Royal Rumble match tonight:
“Of course. Who wouldn’t?”

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (January 29, 1984) – WWF Wrestling At The Chase
On this day in 1984, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their weekly TV show ‘WWF Wrestling At The Chase’.
The ‘Wrestling at the Chase’ TV show was originally associated with the ‘St. Louis Wrestling Club’ NWA territory, so they featured the NWA Wrestling Superstars, but in the fall of 1983, the TV station KPLR-TV (Channel 11) ended the relationship with the National Wrestling Alliance and started to negotiate a deal with the World Wrestling Federation, the promotion that ended up taking over the famous TV show.
This episode was pre-taped in St. Louis, Missouri and featured the 1984 WWF Superstars.
You can find the card below:
