WWE Wrestling updates LIVE – AEW star Chris Jericho wants a dream match against ex-WWE star Samoa Joe

AEW's Chris Jericho reveals which of the recently-released WWE superstars he wants to join the AEW roster.

In an interview with the New York Post, Chris Jericho revealed that he wants to see Samoa Joe in an AEW ring.

Jericho says it would be the first time he faced the former WWE star and "that’s another dream match if you want to go there.".

Joe was among eleven superstars that were cut from WWE on April 15 due to "budget cuts".

Eva Marie is heading back to WWE, a move teased last night on Monday Night RAW.

During the show, the company released a promotional video featuring Marie wearing black leather dress and pink hair on top of a car.

Meanwhile, Daniel Bryan was moved to the Alumni section on WWE's official website after losing a dramatic showdown with Roman Reigns on Friday night, which resulted in a ban from SmackDown.

Following April’s Wrestlemania, WWE moved NXT from Wednesday night to Tuesday night so that it was no longer competing with AEW Dynamite.

NXT airs on USA Network and is also available on the WWE network.
All Elite Wrestling will continue on Wednesdays showcasing their talented roster on TNT. 

Newcomer AEW offers a mix of indie darlings, such as Thunder Rosa, wrestling legends, such as “Demo God” Chris Jericho and Jim “JR” Ross, and up-and-coming stars, such as Tay Conti, Jade Cargill, and Britt Baker. 

Fans of Impact! Wrestling can now watch their favorite stars, including current Impact KNOCKOUTS champion Deonna Purrazzo, on Thursday night on Twitch, and on AXSTV.

    SHEAMUS MOCKS MANSOOR AFTER BREAKING HIS UNDEFEATED STREAK

    Sheamus took to Twitter to mock Mansoor after breaking his 49-match win streak.

    The Saudi Arabian star made his full roster debut on Monday Night Raw but saw his unbeaten run come to an end.

    The 25-year-old made a surprise appearance to sign the contract and answer US Champion Sheamus’ open challenge.

    Mansoor and Sheamus battled for just four minutes before Humberto Carrillo ran down to the ring and began attacking the title holder in retaliation for an earlier attack.

    That led to Mansoor losing the bout via disqualification. However, it also meant his 49-match winning streak in WWE was over.

    'ALL AEW CHARACTERS FEEL THE SAME', SAYS ERIC BISCHOFF

    Eric Bischoff has called out AEW for having too many similar characters.

    While speaking on the 83 Weeks Podcast, he said there needs to be a "good balance.

    “In my humble opinion, AEW does need to balance with different types of storytelling and characters that have a bigger feel because right now, other than a handful of people, they kind of all feel the same," he said.

    "Some are way better than others, some are spectacular, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, but for the most part, they all kind of feel the same.

    "I think for wrestling to continue to grow and to grow the audience beyond what it currently is, you need to find those characters that appeal to a different affinity for the project. I’m not saying they all need to be like WWE characters, but there needs to be a good balance."
