-Samoa Joe, according to PWInsider.com, suffered a knee injury this weekend and is expected to be sidelines for about four weeks. Joe was advertise for a dark match against John Cena last night in Memphis, Tenn. after Raw went off the air, but he not only wasn’t there, but WWE didn’t acknowledge the change in line-up to fans in the arena. Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman was the other announced dark match, and not only didn’t it take place, but Strowman didn’t appear at all and his absence wasn’t acknowledged.

-During last night’s Smackdown live event in Texarkana, Ark., Xavier was carried to the back after the match by Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Dr. Amann. An injury seemed to possibly occur during a roll-through DDT attempt. Full results at ProWrestling.net HERE.

-We are looking for an on-site correspondent in Little Rock, Ark. for Smackdown tonight. Email if you are able to email us details or be a correspondent by phone for the Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast tonight after the event: kellerwade@pwtorch.com.

-Rosemary accused Sexy Star of “taking liberties” with her during their match over the weekend at AAA TripleMania. On Twitter, she posted a statement saying she is an asshole who doesn’t belong in the business. She thanked Vampiro backstage for trying to calm a volatile situation. She said Sexy Star made excuses “in lieu of an apology.”

-GFW Impact Wrestling last Thursday on Pop TV drew 296,000 viewers, down from 373,000 the same week the year before. Viewership was down pretty consistently among all key demographics.
