    The Grapevine (9/30/20): More COVID-19 Updates, Aleister Black's New Theme, Rob Van Dam Done With Impact

    Shayna Baszler and Lana on WWE RAW

    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    More COVID-19 updates

    Other than the two women's matches being scrapped from the Clash of Champions card, RAW Underground was also affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. There were no RAW Underground segments filmed due to the lack of available talents. Shayna Baszler, Nikki Cross, and Nia Jax have tested negative for the virus so far, but have to stay isolated as a precaution due to coming in contact with other positive cases.

    We say: Vince McMahon probably still won't realize that stopping the show is what needs to be done, nor do we expect him to. At the very least, their testing gets ramped up, but they'll have to figure out safer ways to run their operations. And, once again, people really need to take this seriously.

    Aleister Black's new theme

    Aleister Black debuted a new theme on RAW this week. It was apparently more his personal choice in addition to the company having the new song made. (Source: Fightful Select)

    We say: The old song was one of CFO$'s better hits, but this is a good move anyway for the heel Aleister Black. (Not that his current booking is getting him cheered, anyway.)

    Rob Van Dam done with Impact Wrestling

    Rob Van Dam and Katie Forbes are now done with Impact Wrestling. His last storyline with Sami Callihan had concluded last week, and he had been working for the company without a contract. He is apparently working with WWE for some unrevealed projects. (Source: PWInsider)

    We say: It's very likely that we'll see him back with WWE, and would be very surprising if he appeared on AEW. Best to keep an eye on where he'll end up, if he wants to end up anywhere.
