Today we have updates on Dicky Mayer in Japan, AWS, Bar Wrestling, PCW, CWFH, WWE, Lucha Underground, and more. Plus this weekend’s Southern California wrestling and MMA lineup. Click for today’s update.

Dicky Mayer will be wrestling Taka Michinoku at the Kaientai Dojo show on July 30th in Chiba, Japan. He will also be taking part in the promotion’s Kaioh Tournament that takes place on August 6th. He will be facing Dinosaur Takuma in the 1st round. Mayer is spending several months in Japan training with Kaientai Dojo.

The match between Ruby Raze and Taya Valkyrie at July 29th’s AWS show in South Gate has been made a no-DQ, falls count anywhere match. This is coming off Taya being stripped of her AAA Reina de Reinas title after winning it in a no-DQ, falls count anywhere match against Ayako Hamada in Tijuana, when it was said she used an illegal choke. Her being stripped of the title has caused a major falling out between her and AAA due to the way it was handled.

Impact’s Rosemary will be back in Southern California for the Rise and AWS shows on December 1st and 2nd.

Bar Wrestling has announced Shotzi Blackheart and Matt Cross have been added to their August 17th show in Baldwin Park. Shayna Baszler has been removed from the show due to WWE commitments.
