It has just been reported that a WWE Hall of Famer was hospitalized not too long ago. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and his family announced on social media that he was was rushed to a hospital in South Carolina yesterday. Duggan was placed in Intensive Care for an unknown medical issue. Jim Duggan is known for his stints in promotions such as WWE and WCW, and his time in the pro wrestling industry dates back all the way to 1979. Fortunately, it does not look like Duggan will be staying in the hospital for long as he noted on social media that he is currently hoping to be released by this weekend. Hopefully, this wrestling legend will make a full recovery and will get back on his feet sooner rather than later.

One promotion that has been on the rise this year has been Major League Wrestling. The promotion already has plenty of incredible roster members right now, and their weekly Fusion show currently airs on beIN Sports as well. The potential for MLW to grown into a major promotion has been noted by several fans, but it appears that the time for the promotion to take the next step in its growth is coming up fast. MLW CEO Court Bauer ominously tweeted that a “blockbuster deal” has just been signed for MLW. What this huge deal entails is currently unknown, but Bauer’s initial statement indicates that an official announcement on the matter will be made by late 2018/early 2019. Stay tuned for the latest updates on the future of MLW.
Just closed a blockbuster deal. It’s official: @MLW is closing out the year making history.

Jeff Cobb has already impressed fans with his work in PWG and Lucha Underground, but he is now proving himself in Ring of Honor. Cobb joined the promotion earlier this year, and he recently won the ROH World Television Championship. Cobb’s talents would flourish in just about any promotion, but it does not look like he will be leaving ROH any time soon. During an appearance on The Jim Ross Report podcast, Cobb revealed that he has been delighted by the staff, fans, and talent ever since he signed with ROH. As a result, Cobb says that he has no intention of leaving ROH and he will continue to grow his wrestling portfolio in the promotion for the time being. Cobb stated the following during his interview:
“I’ve had a blast. Like, all the dudes in the back are great, from the top to the bottom, everybody has just been awesome. Like, the staff has been cool, the booker’s cool, [ROH COO] Joe Koff has been super nice to me. It has been a great time back there and I’ll be with Ring of Honor for the foreseeable future.”
