Bobby Lashley Invites President Trump to Impact Wrestling Slammiversary

Credit: WWE.com

Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley has invited President Donald Trump to the July 2nd Slammiversary pay-per-view in Orlando. Lashley and Trump previously worked together at WrestleMania 23 for the Battle of The Billionaires, which saw Trump in Lashley’s corner as he defeated Umaga, who had Vince McMahon in his corner. The match ended with Trump shaving Vince’s head.

Lashley issued the Slammiversary invite to Trump after it was announced that Lucha legend Dos Caras will be supporting his son GFW Global Champion Alberto El Patron, appearing in his corner, for the unification title main event. Below is the official announcement from Impact:

Lashley Wants President Trump In His Corner For Slammiversary on July 2nd

Impact Star Revealed Who She Wanted To Face In WWE Before Her Release

Angelina Love recently appeared on “The Rack,” where she revealed her favorite opponents and how she wanted to face Trish Stratus and Victoria before she was released by WWE.

“I feel like every girl has brought out something different in me. Kong for instance, was one of my favorite people to feud with,” Angelina said of her favorite Impact Wrestling opponents.

“Taylor Wilde, we trained together at Squared Circle in Toronto, under Rob Fuego. Being able to go on the road and do house shows together and PPVs. We did everything against each other and it’s so cool because it was two girls who came from a training school in Toronto. We were in WWEdevelopmental together as well,” said Love. “Gail always makes me step up my game.”

Prior to becoming a decorated talent with Impact Wrestling, where she’s a six-time Knockout Champion, Love worked under a developmental contract in WWE. While there, she always wanted to wrestle some of the top female performers.

“When I got released from WWE, I remember doing an interview and they asked me who did you not get a chance to wrestle, that you wanted too in WWE and my answer was Trish and Victoria,” Love recalled. “I was her first feud when she came to TNA, so that was really fun.”

“I feel like feuding with all these different people brought all different kinds of aspects for me,” said Love. “I like everybody in their own right.”

Pete Dunne on Takeover Match, William Regal and Dream Opponent

BRITISH STRONG STYLE! Earlier this year at “Takeover: Chicago”, Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne absolutely stole the show and had one of the best matches of the year (possibly the best). They tore the house down in a fight over the United Kingdom Championship with Dunne coming out the victor. This made him a bigger star and that gained him more interest from fans.

[This post contains video, click to play]

Some of that interest was an appearance on the “Card Subject to Change” podcast where he spoke about his experience in WWE and what it was like to work for the promotion both in the UK and on various NXT shows. Dunne also talks about his dream opponent, which isn’t likely to surprise you. Here are some highlights with transcription courtesy of 411mania.com:

On the Takeover Match

“It was unbelievable really. When we were in there we didn’t realise what we’d just done. We felt like it went well but it was only afterwards when they rushed me straight off to the media and I was on the phone to ESPN, and it was only just starting to resonate with me how well it went.”

On William Regal Bringing Him to the Company


“It’s brilliant. I have him to thank for getting me here in the first place. I kept getting missed calls from a number that I didn’t recognise, and the third time I realised it said Stamford, Connecticut. So I answer and it was Regal, completely out of the blue and he said he was in England, and wanted to come and watch me wrestle on that show in Mansfield. So instantly, my motivation went through the roof. So I met him there, he watched my match and he really liked it. He set me up a tryout in November. And here we are now.”

And on His Dream Opponent

“The big one for me is Brock Lesnar. I like that you believe in him, because that is him. I try to carry myself that way and I look to someday reach that level. I think it would be a match people wouldn’t expect but it’s one I’d love to have. It’d be a good fight.”

You can listen to the full interview here.

Opinion: Dunne is 23 years old and wrestles like someone with ten more years of experience. He’s young, he’s talented, he’s had great matches and he has one of the best evil smirks I can remember in a long time. Give him some time and some more experience and I can’t imagine how good he could be.

Impact Wrestling Star Injured At Show In Italy

Bram, real name Thomas Latimer, was badly injured while wrestling in Rome, Italy on Saturday night. Former Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Nick “Magnus” Aldis, who was working the same show as Bram, mentioned on his Twitter account that Bram was injured and had to undergo surgery. He noted that he wouldn’t go into specifics because he would let Bram be the one to do so. The surgery went fine, but doctors were not very forthcoming with more information, according to Aldis.

You can see Aldis’ post below. We wish Bram a speedy recovery.

Tom (Bram) was injured last night in Rome. He unfortunately won’t be able to appear tonight in Plymouth… He’s a warrior & will be ok. pic.twitter.com/nOFkmlgpkm

Questions, Tweets, Replies. John Cena’s big comeback to WWE (his latest one if you’re trying to be specific) is scheduled for the Fourth of July on “Smackdown Live”. While he’ll be heading to “Monday Night Raw” at times as well, Cena still has time to interact with his fans from time to time, including a Twitter Q&A on Sunday afternoon.

Cena took questions from fans for a little while with topics ranging from who he would like to face, what his goals are during his comeback, his favorite movies and songs and more. While there were several Tweets to go through, here are a few of the more interesting statements Cena made.

You can view the whole Q&A on Cena’s Twitter here.

Opinion: I know there wasn’t exactly a lot of earth shattering material here but there’s something cool about being able to directly ask a top star questions like this. It would have been unthinkable to do something like this back in almost any other era but it can be done here and read by anyone at anytime. That kind of thing always impresses me, at least to a certain degree.
