Well, we made it to Friday, and there’s a new Observer out last night! Let’s see what’s in the news…
DATELINE: The secret streaming service apparently bidding for Wrestlemania is Peacock, which launches on 4/15 and will carry a $9.99 price tag. The idea being that all the PPVs move to that service and the WWE Network moves towards the Fight Pass model of the old WWE content plus hosting other indie promotions like Evolve and WXW.
DATELINE: New Japan is looking at a return to MSG in the summer, assuming that Vince doesn’t try to get it shut down again. However, regardless of whether they can strike a deal with AEW for talent exchanges, it wouldn’t appear likely for Tony Khan to allow AEW guys to work that show.
DATELINE: With Awesome Kong off to film GLOW again, AEW taped a segment for YouTube where Brandi Rhodes goes to a psychiatrist and is cured of her evil side. So the Nightmare Collective is offically done.
And here’s Brock Lesnar squashing Hulk Hogan to kick off your day!
