Below are a couple of important WWE news stories:
– In the main event of IMPACT Wrestling’s Slammiversary 2023 pay-per-view last month, Alex Shelley defeated Nick Aldis (fka Magnus) to retain the IMPACT World Championship.
With that loss, Aldis’ short-term deal with IMPACT came to an end and he became a Free Agent.
As noted before, PWInsider reported that WWE was interested in signing Aldis, but as a Backstage Producer, not a Wrestler.
In an update from them today, the former NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion will be in Minneapolis for the RAW after SummerSlam tonight and will be serving as a Producer for the show.
He will reportedly be at a number of upcoming WWE TV tapings.
Aldis recently pulled out from several independent bookings due to back issues.
– Ronda Rousey battled Shayna Baszler in an MMA Rules match at WWE SummerSlam this past Saturday. Baszler won the match via Technical Submission after Rousey passed out to her Kirifuda Clutch.
The match is being called Rousey’s last match in her second WWE run, as she’s rumored to leave the company now.
The former RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion has now broken her silence. She took to Instagram today to state that Baszler was the reason she joined the pro wrestling business, but after their split she has no reason to stay in the business anymore.
“@qosbaszler you were the reason I got into this business… Now I got no reason to stay”
It seems like Rousey has confirmed her departure from WWE in this post. Whether she will return in the future is unknown yet.
