On a recent edition of the “CMLL Informa” podcast, CMLL World Women’s Champion Stephanie Vaquer offered her thoughts on fans’ reactions to her potentially appearing in AEW via CMLL’s partnership. Vaquer said,
“I was very surprised by the embrace from the public from when I went to NJPW. When CMLL announced their partnership with AEW, everyone on Twitter was tagging me saying ‘We want Stephanie!’
Many people in the United States want it and keep sending me messages about it, and I would be proud to represent CMLL, whether in Japan or the United States, and I mean that wholeheartedly.”
Vaquer will challenge Mayu Iwatani for the IWGP Women’s Championship at NJPW Lonestar Shootout 2023.
On a recent edition of the “Wilde On” podcast, ROH World Champion and NJPW Strong Openweight Champion Eddie Kingston revealed the most embarrassing wrestling moment of his career.
Kingston discussed the unfortunate moment, blaming a wedding hangover, and a suplex involving a wrestler named Bandido (not the one currently signed to AEW). He said,
“Before the match, we had a wedding the day before the show. It was Monsta Mack’s wedding, so me, Homicide, Low Ki, a bunch of the guys were at the wedding, and we all drank a lot. Then we had the wrestling the next day. I’m hungover, and I told Bandido [Jr., aka Eddie Orengo], who’s now in WWE as a referee, and Azrieal. They were going to suplex me on the floor and I said, ‘Hey do me a favor, just snap suplex me…cause I’m not feeling too hot.’ ‘Okay, okay, okay.’ Well, they do it, and I s**t myself.
[With] eight more minutes to go I think…I put Bandido, I think, or Azrieal, one of them in a head scissors after it. I went, ‘You smell that? I told you not [to]. What the f**k.’ I tagged out, we did the match. It was in the Rahway Rec Center, and I just ran right to the shower. I was in the dark, took everything off in the shower. Had my boots on taking the shower. That’s probably the most embarrassing thing that happened to me in wrestling.”
Kingston teamed with B-Boy and defeated Azrieal & Bandido Jr. in tag team action.
