• WWE Live Events Cancelled Until 2022
WWE has been unable to hold any live event since the Coronavirus pandemic hit the US. The company has only been holding their TV shows without fans in attendance.
Previous plans stated that the company doesn’t plan to start touring until 2021, but it seems like that too won’t happen as WrestleVotes recently gave an update on it and stated that the latest plan is for WWE to hold back on house shows until 2022.
“I’ve been told that the typical weekly live event loop (Friday TV + house shows Sat & Sun + Monday TV) all of which in different locations, won’t return to the WWE schedule until 2022.”

Vince McMahon stated in an earnings call earlier this year that WWE won’t get back into the Live Event business even after the pandemic is over.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 15, 2006) – Famous WCW/WWF Jobber Passed Away
On this day in 2006, we lost Old School WCW/WWF Jobber “Jumping” Joey Maggs at the young age of 37.
The cause of his death still remains unknown to this day.
Joe Maggs became a regular enhancement talent or like they say ‘Jobber To The Stars’ in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling by 1991 and continued to put WCW Wrestlers over until he retired from pro-wrestling in 1998 because of a shoulder injury.
Over the years, he also did several televised jobs for the rival promotion, Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation, in between his WCW stints, putting over WWF Superstars in 1992, 1993 & 1994.
His biggest accomplishment was without a doubt, when he wrestled for the vacant WCW World Heavyweight Championship, as an entrant in the 60-man 3-ring Battle Royal that main evented the ‘WCW World War 3 1995’ PPV.
REST IN PEACE JOEY MAGGS
