One huge wrestling event that fans can still look forward to this year is the All In show that is being financed by Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks. Not only will this be an independent wrestling show with over 10,000 fans in attendance, but the boys have just announced that there are now plans to broadcast the show. Although few details were given, Cody Rhodes, Matt Jackson, and Nick Jackson have confirmed that they will be licensing the production of the event. The trio have promised that more information will be coming soon, but there are no shortage of on-demand wrestling services for them to negotiate with. All In will be taking place in Chicago, Illinois on September 1st.
We can confirm that we have decided in favor of licensing production. So 100% this event will be broadcasted in some capacity. We want as many people to see it as possible! Details in the coming weeks. -Cody, Matt, Nick

The recently released Woken WWE 24 documentary on the WWE Network showcased a brutal look at the personal troubles that Matt and Jeff Hardy faced before they both returned to WWE in 2017. Jeff Hardy has had a history with addiction issues in the past, and that is apparently what led to his release from WWE back in 2003. In a short sneak preview of the latest Something Else to Wrestle WWE Network podcast with Bruce Prichard, the host stated that Hardy’s drug problems had gotten so out of hand that company officials warned him to either enter rehab or lose his job. Hardy refused treatment at the time, which Prichard cites as the reason for the current United States Champion’s original WWE departure.
Fans may remember that WWE had begun a storyline earlier this year wherein Nia Jax and Enzo Amore were about to begin a romantic relationship. The storyline ultimately never went anywhere and was suddenly dropped due to Amore’s release from the company back in January. During an appearance on the Store Horseman podcast, Amore claimed that the storyline would have seen Nia help Enzo win all of his matches. Enzo also said that the angle would have culminated with Nia finding out that Amore had secretly been dating Alexa Bliss behind her back. This would have been the catalyst for a Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss match for the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 34 rather than the direction that was used for the match instead.
