Here is your fight size update for Sunday, May 2, 2021.
- Kip Sabian says "surgery incoming" after suffering a beatdown at the hands of Miro on the last episode of AEW Dynamite. Fightful Select confirmed that he's been dealing with another injury and this is being used as a storyline excuse to get him out of the picture.
Speaking with Louis Dangoor of WrestleTalk, Pinnacle member Shawn Spear spoke about recently released WWE Superstars Cassie Lee (Peyton Royce) and Jessica McKay (Billie Kay) and the likelihood of them signing in AEW. He said the following:
“In terms of where they’ll show up (mimics praying) Tony why not? But again, those things are above my pay grade. When things like that happen, and they happen to everybody, I tell everybody this not just those two, but I’ve been released before. Everybody loses their job at some point, you’re either there for 30 years and they give you a gold watch and you retire or things happen. The main thing is how you bounce back. Really good individuals, really strong-willed individuals and people with even a chip on their shoulder, they have a tendency to bounce back and land on their feet, and those two women are going to land on their feet without question. Wherever they go, they’re going to be on TV together somewhere. So selfishly I’d like us to get ahold of them first, but wherever they go they’re going to make a massive impactful debut. I expect nothing less from those two.”

Here is the official synopsis:
“Two giant monsters are forced to battle head to screaming head on the political circuit as they run against each other for a seat as a senator. But the unsuspecting public doesn’t realize there are actually creatures that each running mate owns, feasting on helpless, big-breasted, quivering-lipped women and charity-thieving priests. The perils of politics never involved two enormous behemoths fighting to the death…until now! You’ll be on the edge of your seat watching fangs feasting on heaps of flesh as beautiful babes are fed to the beasts in It Wants Blood!”
