- Both Bronson Reed (JONAH) and Myron Reed have reacted to the hiatus of Ring of Honor on the Wrestling Inc Daily.

“It’s very shocking,” JONAH expressed. “I have friends within the business that have messaged me straight away saying, ‘What’s going on?’ I assume it has to do with, obviously, unfortunately, the pandemic has affected a lot of wrestling companies and what they’ve been able to earn every quarter, and it looks like, this is just me guessing, it’s from that and that’s what’s happening with Ring of Honor. But I do have some friends in Australia that were set to do work with Ring of Honor, so I’m hoping for them that they can still do so.”

------------

Myron: “Honestly, I can only imagine what they’re going through as far as being released, but one door closes another one opens, and I feel like for a lot of those guys, they’re gonna get bigger opportunities, bigger platforms,” Reed explained. “And for other guys, maybe they weren’t working hard enough, and now this is gonna open their eyes and make them work harder. I feel like everything happens for a reason to everybody, and hopefully, a lot of these guys get bigger contracts, make more money, get on the indies and do great. I want them to all be great.”

- Here's your SmackDown preview for tonight:

- MDickie has updated Wrestling Empire on Steam:

Just when you think you've seen it all, you can now change what you're seeing! Upon taking each promotion to the top of the ratings (which is now signified by a golden pen) or winning every title at every promotion, you can unlock special editing privileges for the brand as well as its roster. It's mostly useful for changing the names and colours of each championship belt. Although there’s no easy way to change the logo along with the brand name, this at least meets the modders halfway. You can even change the colour associated with each brand, which now subtly changes the background colour itself as well as the territory.

This update also takes another pass at balancing the books, as I found it was too easy to coast through the booking mode with a popular champion. Their popularity now only accounts for a THIRD of the house instead of half, putting more focus on a good in-ring product to achieve the final number. Meanwhile, rival territories are also more competitive to keep you on your toes! As ever, there's also a handful of new moves to look out for:

- Chris Van Vliet spoke with Tony Nese recently. In the interview, Nese comments on whether or not it felt bittersweet winning the Cruiserweight Championship on WrestleMania 35's pre-show,

"Not necessarily. There were times where it would cross my mind of well it's the kick-off show, but it is what it is. To WWE's credit, they did very well in treating me and Murphy like we were on the main show as well. That whole week, I felt like I was a part of WWE and not on some sideshow. That was really cool. After the match, Vince was in Gorilla, he stood up and said 'That's how you start WrestleMania.' I don't care what people say, that's cool."
