– WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk, who turns 71 next month, was scheduled to team with Genichiro Tenryu in Osaka, Japan on May 30th but the match has been canceled due to Funk still being in rough shape following a lengthy battle with viral pneumonia. Dory Funk Jr. was already going to Japan to work so he will be replacing Terry in the match, teaming with Tenryu and Nosawa to take on Suwama, Atsushi Aoki and Hikaru Sato.
– While there are rumors that Scott Hall left Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling due to a potential gig with WWE NXT, Hall was pulled from GFW as soon as TMZ broke the story about him being drunk at a festival in New Jersey. That is the reason Hall is no longer with GFW.
Regarding GFW, word is that there is no TV deal in place and while they’re looking at using Jim Ross and Chael Sonnen as announcers, Sonnen hasn’t actually signed his deal. JR also hasn’t signed a deal but that’s been known. Sonnen has been recording videos for GFW and appeared at their press conference but is still not signed, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
