Johnny Mundo Making GFW Debut at Upcoming Impact Live Events
 
Quote:

Former WWE Intercontinental Champion John Hennigan (John Morrison, Johnny Mundo) is set to make his GFW debut at the upcoming Impact live events in the New York Tri-state area. Hennigan currently holds the AAA Mega Title, the AAA Latin American Title and the AAA World Cruiserweight Title. This will be his first match for any brand under TNA or GFW since leaving WWE in 2011.

The live events will take place on August 4th in Long Island, August 5th in Staten Island and August 6th in Bridgeport, CT.

If Drago and El Hijo de Fantasma's debuts at Slammiversary (and subsequent use through the tapings that took place following it) aren't proof positive enough of the working relationship between the two companies, this should drive that fact home emphatically. Coming in for a live event versus a television taping is a little odd, but it can probably be explained away by being able to talk up GFW live events (which Jarrett has said he wants to do more of in the future, including touring PPVs) as a means to boost future ticket sales.

Plus, I'd imagine Mundo, like Drago and de Fantasma, will be a part of the next set of tapings anyway. This gives fans the opportunity to see him in a GFW ring now without having to wait for those tapings to come around since they won't be taking place until later this summer.

This is awesome. Mundo has been on fire in Lucha Underground/AAA. He has improved drastically as a performer. This is good news for GFW! I am surprised as well he is debuting at a live even but this is merely to sell tickets as you mentioned IDR.

Mundo hopefully will be on the next set of tapings. Here is to hoping Pentagon Dark shows up in GFW!

Which will be interesting if it is due to AAA as he seemed to be pissed off at them at the moment due to the whole Taya screwjob

In case you are wondering what I am talking about ...so its either a work to set up a AAA vs GFW thing or this wont be anything to do with AAA

Mundo is one of my favorite guys outside the WWE right now. I was a big fan of his work in WWE, but he has grown so much in the six years he has been away. His in ring work was always solid, but his mic work has gotten good. He plays a great heel, not afraid to be the chicken shit sneaky heel. I think he would be a good get for GWF if they bring him in full time. I know that a lot of LU contracts are hard to work around, just look at Ricochet, but if they get him on TV he would add to the product. I've always wondered why he never returned to WWE, it seemed he left on good terms. Maybe something related to Melina, but that is an entirely different story. Good news for both parties though.

Good add on for GWF would excellent in the X division.

El Killjoy 07-20-2017 12:16 AM

Then coming in has nothing to do with the working relationship. They wanted out of AAA for their fuckery, GFW just picked up the breadcrumbs and threw them in as soon as possible. Though those are not bad breadcrumbs to pick up at all. Lets face it, they desperately need to make a good impression on these house shows if they want to go back to regular touring.

Add this to the fact that there's a possibility of Taya signing would make this a huge coup. I just hope that if this comes to pass and they're paired up like they were in LU, I hope they get this right for the long haul. I'd expect Mundo to challenge for the Grand Championship right out of the gate, depending on who'll the champ.

Johnny Mundo & Taya Valkyrie >>>>> Mike Bennett & Maria Kinellis. There is some amazing talent in GFW right now and these two coming is as well as some other rumoured talent signings are going to add to what is rapidly becoming one of the best wrestling products around. There live shows should be awesome.

If Johnny and Taya taped anything for Lucha U Season 3 they would have to wait 90 days after the Season 3 Finale as I don't think they want to be Screwed like Hernandez was by them not understanding of how the Contract was written.

ShinChan 07-23-2017 02:53 AM

It's an awesome news. I wonder if both of them will join GFW once Lucha Underground's final episode is telecasted. That would be another awesome addition to the roster.

Just like Drew Galloway, Johnny Mundo has improved heaps of amount after leaving WWE and is easily a credible main event attraction. He has been great in Lucha Underground and I expect nothing less from him here.
