Here's your fight-size update for Monday, March 15, 2021:
- On his most recent Wrestling with the Week podcast, Scorpio Sky opened up about competing in ladder matches and how painful they are for all competitors.
"That ladder match was hard, man. My first match in two months and jumping right in the deep water like I talked about a few weeks ago, it was not easy. I'm still feeling it... My back, my shoulders, my everything, the ladder match is everything that it’s built up to be. We talked about it going into it, we talked about how you're going to come out and you're not going to be the same and that's accurate, man. Like that one was one of the rougher ones."

- Nick Aldis, in an interview with Metro, credited TNA Wrestling with being one of the first promotions to really put the UK audience first.
"I think some of that started to change with TNA, I think TNA deserve a lot of credit for that. ‘They had such a strong following and because of the efforts of people – not just me, but people like Jeremy Borash and others who were very keenly aware of how much the UK wrestling market was set to explode, really pushed that agenda of “If we treat these guys like equals, they’re not gonna be satisfied anymore in a global market with table scraps. They want their own main course.”
