Former WWE and Impact Wrestling stars show up in Toronto

AEW already filmed Friday’s episode, and those in attendance revealed what happened in Toronto, Canada. In addition to the wrapped map, there was also a surprise appearance at the end of the taping, and as of that point spoilers are coming for the episode, so if you don’t want to know, you’ve been warned. . The biggest development is that at the end of the episode, former WWE and Impact Wrestling stars Mike Bennett, Matt Taven and Maria Kanellis all showed up and attacked FTR after challenging them. Kanellis also cut a heel promo before Samoa Joe and Wardlow came to help FTR.

The three stars just completed a run with Impact Wrestling as the mayhem-causing faction called Honor No More. They had all been with Ring of Honor before, but they were released from their contracts with all the other ROH talent.

Since then, Tony Khan has bought ROH and is working on a TV deal for the company, but in the meantime ROH is playing a part in weekly AEW TV episodes. There have also been special ROH events, but at this time it’s unclear where Bennett, Taven, and Kanellis will land. Are they part of the ROH side or the AEW side? It doesn’t really matter right now since they’re all featured anyway, but things should become a little clearer when ROH finally gets a new TV deal.

There had been recent reports that WWE were interested in Taven, but it appeared he wasn’t headed there. Bennett and Kanellis both had previous stints in WWE and were last with the company in 2020, although Bennett asked Vince McMahon for his release as early as 2019.
