Here's your fight size update for Thursday, July 15, 2021:
Today the era of Kalisto comes to an end. This character taught me so much about myself. It gave me the opportunity to accomplish many things and meet many great people along the way. As this era comes to an end I feel grateful for all my accomplishments. Kalisto is no longer here but will hold a special place in my life that will live on forever. He will be locked away in a chamber frozen in time.
Thank you ALL for the support throughout the years. For those that have been supporting me from day one know that somewhere in the darkness Samuray Del Sol has been hibernating, well I’m here to say that he is AWAKE.
SDS is back!
Hoy termina la época de Kalisto. Este personaje me enseñó mucho sobre mí. Me dio la oportunidad de lograr muchas cosas y conocer a mucha gente en el camino. A medida que esta era llega a su fin, me siento agradecido por todos mis logros. Kalisto ya no está aquí, pero ocupará un lugar especial en mi vida que vivirá para siempre. Estará encerrado en una cámara congelada a puebra de tiempo.

- Speaking with Sportskeeda, the former Tucker of WWE praised Britt Baker as a major star:
"Yeah, I mean, they are doing very well. I think in any industry, healthy competition is good for the industry, right? I mean, the more eyes on wrestling as a whole, the better it is for indie wrestling and companies like TNA and all of them. I think AEW has been doing great. They have been servicing a population of new wrestling fans, and it seems like those people are extremely happy with what's going on. I think, obviously, Britt Baker has been very impressive, right? Somebody right off the bat from being essentially nobody in two years to becoming one of the biggest female stars in wrestling," said Levi Cooper.
- Sheamus is now-happily engaged:
- PWInsider.com reports the WALTER injury is legitimate, not a storyline.
- WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre can’t wait to get back to Kansas City:
The driving and flying and grinding that comes with multiple performances in multiple cities a week? It’s the Nike slogan: you just do it. I’ve had my entire life being on the road. I have, as I said, wrestled since I was 15. I had school, obviously—high school and college—and in my free time, I was on the road the entire time. All my summer holidays were spent wrestling since I was a kid. I was signed to WWE at 21 from university, come straight to America, and was straight on the road full-time.
I’ve only ever known being on the road, aside from this past year. It was a hard adjustment at first, being home. I would drive at the beginning of the pandemic for two, three hours, just randomly. My wife would say, “What are you doing? What’s wrong with you?” And I was, “I just don’t know what to do with myself. I’ve never had this much free time. I’m so used to driving places.” I did it for a long time. Eventually I cut it out and learned a bit more about myself and who I am.
I spoke to a few people about this, and hopefully everybody’s had the mentality of looking for the positives during the negative time. I learned to be a little more present at home, learn to balance my work and personal life. I’ve always been such work driven, but you can have balance and it turns out if you turned your mind off work for a second, it really benefits your job, because it lets everything process and you actually go further if you can take your mind off it for a second. I’ve worked on that during this time, but I am excited to get back on the road. I was born to be on the road. It’s my dream to be on the road. I miss our live fans so much and I can’t wait to get back in front of them.
- Today's episode of New Japan Pro Wrestling on The Roku Channel features:
Power Struggle: Tetsuya Naito vs. EVIL

- Speaking with TVInsider, Sami Callihan discussed we he thinks IMPACT needs to get to the next level:
The main thing is getting back on the touring schedule. People seem to forget right before the pandemic happened, Impact Wrestling was selling out bigger and bigger buildings. One of the main things we needed was a little star power. We got it with the Good Brothers, Heath, Curt Hawkins, Matt Cardona, and others. We truly do now have one of the best rosters. The touring will show just how hot Impact is.
