WHY FANS DIDN'T GET A CLEAN FINISH IN ONITA VS. TREMONT, WHY AEW WON'T USE BASH AT THE BEACH AGAIN, SCARLETT AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2021-01-28 10:00:00

I was one of the many people who travelled pretty far for the Onita CZW Once in a Lifetime event expecting the one-on-one match and then got the bait and switch we all ended up with. I’ve heard quite a few versions on what actually happened between Onita and CZW and I know you guys were there live as well. What is the real story? 

The story was what we reported at the time.  Onita didn't want to do the singles match and pushed for the six man tag instead.  For whatever reason, even though he was paying a ridiculously high sum for Onita to appear, CZW's DJ Hyde agreed to it.  I heard the plan beforehand and knew it would go over like a fart in church and when I was interviewed for a documentary about Onita appearing, cautioned that if they didn't give the audience what they expected, it would be a bad idea.  It was and the audience wasn't happen.  I believe that Hyde really wanted to make sure that he could say he was the first one to bring Onita over (and he did a second time at Cage of Death that year as well) and was willing to do anything to make it happen, even a badly booked ending that let the audience Onita drew down in a major way.   

Is the Scarlett in NXT the former ROH ring announcer?

Yes, that is the same person.

Why is AEW not using Bash at the Beach again?

They used the name last year when Cody Rhodes filed for the trademark, as well as number of other event titles that were created under his father's purview but that WWE failed to trademark themselves.  He then, wisely, leveraged those trademarks to get the trademark for Cody Rhodes, which should have always been his anyway, under his ownership.

Didn't Cody say he wasn't going to use the Rhodes name in wrestling?

He did, but my belief is that Tony Khan wanted to use it on AEW and that was the right move, because there is a lot of goodwill in the Rhodes name among pro wrestling fans.

Where is CZW?

They aren't running due to the fact they would lose a ton of money during the pandemic and quite honestly, that would put them out of business.
