It was announced at the AEW Dark tapings over the weekend by Tony Khan that Eddie Kingston was injured.  He last wrestled at the AEW taping in Charlotte.  This would obviously put him out of this weekend's GCW PPV at the Hammerstein Ballroom as the word over the weekends was he would be out a few weeks.

Britt Baker spoke to Inside the Ropes Magazine about WWE's interest in her and commented:

They definitely expressed interest—unfortunately, I’ve got to pick and choose how I say this—but I just feel like you can’t trust anything with that company, whereas at AEW I’ve never been promised anything that didn’t follow through.

So it’s something that, unfortunately, it’s sad that it comes down to that, that it makes a company not really desirable because you can’t trust anything they say. And I know business is business, and I understand totally that’s what it is, but as a wrestler, business is business as well.

Everything AEW had done for me, with the growth I’ve had here, most importantly how much fun I have here, I truly love going to work every week; I never dread it and that is something that is invaluable, you can’t ever give that up and if you find something where not a day in your life feels like work then you absolutely can’t give that up. That’s where I’m at right now.

I’m too thankful to AEW and Tony Khan and everybody who has trusted in me, because without them I wouldn’t be where I am right now.

Big Time Wrestling is running this Saturday 1/22 The Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium in South Carolina with FTR vs. The Rock N' Roll Express for the first time ever.  Matt Hardy vs. CW Anderson and Brock and Arn Anderson is also set for the show. 

AEW is now doing AEW All Elite Crates featuring exclusive merchandise.

Peter Avalon announced today he is now taking independent bookings.  This has led to some asking if he is done with AEW.  We are told he is still with the company but is now opting to take bookings:
