Writing in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported:
“Morgan is expected to return soon.”
A shoulder injury had kept Liv Morgan away from wrestling. But the recent update could be good news for her fans as we inch closer to WrestleMania season.
#3 Former WCW star Evan Karagias arrested
According to the Gaston County Sheriff’s Office, Evan Karagias was arrested on Wednesday, November 1, in North Carolina.
Karagias had been charged with simple assault and injury to personal property. The 49-year-old was released after posting a $25,000 bond.
Best remembered as a member of the 3 Count faction that included Shane Helms and Shannon Moore, Karagias competed for WCW from 1997 to 2001. He held the Cruiserweight and Hardcore Championships once while in the company.
Interestingly, after WCW folded in 2001, Evan Karagias had a WWE stint as part of the Invasion storyline. However, he suffered a severe concussion and was released by the end of the year.
#2 Is WWE interested in re-hiring Sareee (Sarray)?
World Wrestling Entertainment’s higher-ups are reportedly working on bringing back Sarray, who had a stint in NXT but left the company earlier this year. The latest on her potential return comes after Kairi Sane appeared at Crown Jewel 2023.
During Fightful’s Crown Jewel review show, Sean Ross Sapp was asked about other names who could be back in the promotion. Here is what he had to say:
“They’re working on Sarray. AOP [Authors of Pain] has been under a deal for a while.”
#1 Roman Reigns after Crown Jewel
Roman Reigns returned to in-ring action on Saturday, while LA Knight had the most significant opportunity of his career against the top champion.
Although Knight came up short, the match proved he could perform brilliantly in a situation with the highest stakes. The crowd was hot throughout their encounter, even if Reigns emerged victorious as usual.
The Tribal Chief posted on social media after the event:
With the conclusion of Crown Jewel, Roman Reigns is currently not slated for Survivor Series in November 2023.
