– According to information from PWInsider, Karrion Kross starred in another dark match on Monday Night Raw, where he met Drew Gulak before the show. It is still not known whether Cross is the caller or not. Over the past few weeks, some NXT stars have been used in dark matches as SmackDown and Raw rosters are considered to be filled with them.
WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk has dementia. Don Muraco first reported this on the “Fantastic” podcast. Funk lives in Assisted Living, but continues to live in his home in Amarillo, Texas. This was confirmed sometime later by Funk’s official Twitter account, where he thanked fans for the kind words.
Yes, Mr. Funk is currently receiving residential care for several of his health issues, which affect his mind as well as the rest of his body. As you can imagine, some days are better than others. He and his family appreciate all your kind words!

Roderick Strong has signed a new deal with WWE this year and is about to take a big push. As Fightful Select reports, he signed the contract before the start of his new group “Diamond Mine” and the release of his wife Marina Shafir on June 25. Strong is supposed to help restore the cruiserweight division to a new glow.
– Former WWE Superstar Jack Gallagher has confirmed via his Instagram account that WWE had plans to start the “WWE Cruiserweight Tag Tam Championship” at some point. As PWInsider reported in March 2018, WWE officials are said to have given the green light to the brand new championship belt of 205 Live. Various title designs were also designed and discussed before the final look was set for the WWE Cruiserweight Tag Team Title Belt. When a new WWE Cruiserweight Champion was crowned at “WWE WrestleMania 34” in 2018 by Cedric Alexander, who defeated Mustafa Ali for the vacant title, WWE had already begun the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at an unspecified later date. . Ultimately, the titles were never revealed to the public, but according to Gallagher, the title belts that were in the WWE Prop Truck were purple and silver, like the “original” 2018 cruiserweight title. He also recalled when some WWE 205 Live Superstars discovered the championship and submitted ideas for the title to the officials, all of which were rejected. One of the proposals was to fight for the title exclusively in matches under lucha libre rules, the other was to even replace the championship as a six-man tag team championship for the trio. There is no information about why the titles were rejected. You can see his full statement below:
I’ve inquired a few people about the existence of the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles, so allow me to drink tea.
There’s a truck out there with all the props that can be used during the weekly tapings of SmackDown or Raw. Onboard you will find a collection of sledgehammers, barbed wire bats, even umbrellas. It also happens to be the location where two of the Cruiserweight Tag Team Title Belts, Purple and Silver, were kept. He was kept there from the first week the split appeared on television.
These belts were clipped by some members of the roster (who may have also taken some pictures of them holding them) [thinking emoji]), so we all presented ideas to introduce titles.
Two ideas often supported were: one, changing cruiserweight tag team rules to Mexican tag rules, that is, when both feet hit the floor outside the ring that constitutes a legal tag; The second was to set up three men’s teams instead of the usual two, and create a trio title.
All these ideas were categorically rejected.
