Brief news and WWE Fastlane 2017 results
Brief news first:
Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy have signed with Ring of Honor rather than WWE. The duo made their debut this weekend winning the ROH tag titles from The Young Bucks.
Also debuting at ROH was Bubba Ray Dudley after his talks with TNA fell through.
Becky Lynch was at UFC 209 supporting boyfriend Luke Sanders in his fight against Iuri Alcantara. Alcantara won in the second round.
Matt Morgan has returned to TNA.
At tonight’s TNA tapings LAX returned only for Konnan to get into a heated argument with a fan who’d been shouting racist comments.
Speaking of fans, some have been tweeting gifs to Sin Cara of his character’s botches. The current Sin Cara (Hunico) has been forwarding them to the original and botchtacular Sin Cara (Mistico).

The interference in the tag match and women’s match will probably see Mick Foley get fired in storylines so he can take time off for his legitimate hip surgery.
