Ospreay was eventually defeated in the match, which was for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship.

Alexa Bliss is all kinds of fired up heading into WrestleMania!
After being attacked from an invading Asuka last week on Friday Night Smackdown, the six-time WWE champion took the mic this week to issue a challenge to the “Empress of Tomorrow” for next week’s show.
“Last week you decided to sneak through the back door and crash the party,” Bliss said. “If that’s how you want to play that game, that’s fine. I’ve played that game, but better, because I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get what I want. Asuka, you don’t have to crash the party, because I’m extending the invitation. Next week, you versus me on Smackdown – and this time, you can come through the front door.”
It is expected that Bliss and Nikki Cross will challenge the Kabuki Warriors, Asuka and Kairi Sane, for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 36.

During the latest Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer, Mark Henry gave his thoughts on Bill Goldberg and the fan response he is getting online.
“So Roman Reigns goes and does business. When will be the next time you see Bill Goldberg? You won’t see him very much because I don’t think that he’s going to work a full workload. […] primarily the whole thing is, we got to respect Bill Goldberg for who he is.”
Mark Henry also spoke about how Goldberg clearly wants to get rid of the memory of his match at Super ShowDown with The Undertaker.
“He [Goldberg] wanted to get that horrible taste out his mouth,” Henry stated. “From having a bad performance. And here he is given substance to the business, and he’s doing exactly what he needed to do to get rid of that. Like people will remember him being involved in a hell of an angle and going out at WrestleMania.”

Domino’s Pizza has issued a statement regarding a commercial for the company playing during last night’s AEW Dynamite main event immediately after Nick Gage used a pizza cutter on Chris Jericho’s forehead.
In a statement to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, Domino’s denied any involvement with the pizza cutter spot and said that they did not know about it ahead of time.
Additionally, Domino’s is considering whether or not to continue advertising on Dynamite going forward, according to the Front Office Sports report.

“We share the concerns expressed about this incident and the content of this TV-14 rated program, and are assessing our advertising presence on it going forward,” spokesperson Jenny Fouracre-Petko told McCarthy.
The pizza cutter incident took place during the second in a series of Five Labours of Jericho matches, where MJF lays out an opponent and a stipulation for Jericho to overcome. After defeating Shawn Spears and Gage, Jericho will take on Juventud Guerrera on next week’s AEW Dynamite.
Last night’s Dynamite averaged 1,108,000 viewers on TNT, the fourth-best number in the history of the series.
Dernière ligne droite avant l’arrivée du royal baby. D’ici quelques semaines, Meghan Markle et le prince Harry vont accueillir leur premier enfant, attendu pour la mi-avril 2019. Maintenant que la duchesse de Sussex s’est officiellement retirée de la vie publique, reste à savoir quel hôpital les futurs parents ont choisi pour la naissance tant attendue.
Contrairement à ce qui a pu être annoncé en début d’année, l’Américaine de 37 ans ne devrait pas accoucher au Frimley Park Hospital. Situé dans le Surrey, il semblait plus facile d’accès depuis leur nouvelle demeure de Frogmore Cottage, à Windsor. Finalement, des sources ont affirmé au New York Post que Meghan Markle allait donner naissance à son premier enfant au St Mary’s Hospital de Londres, dans l’aile privée Lindo : “Elle présente les moyens de sécurité et les ressources nécessaires pour une naissance royale“, a commenté une source. Il aurait été demandé aux équipes médicales sur place de ne pas prendre de congés au mois d’avril.
Cet hôpital est en effet habitué aux naissances royales : Lady Diana y a accouché de ses deux enfants, les princes William et Harry, et Kate Middleton y a donné naissance à ses trois enfants, George (5 ans), Charlotte (3 ans) et Louis (10 mois). Une maternité VIP qui a un prix puisqu’une nuit en chambre standard coûte près de 7000 euros. Pour son premier accouchement, Meghan Markle aurait également fait appel aux services d’une doula, chargée d’accompagner et soutenir la future maman pendant la grossesse, l’accouchement et la période postnatale.

An analysis of nearly 2m results from 131 marathons staged around the world found that women are better pacers than men when it comes to marathon running.
“Although men are faster marathon runners than women they are not the smartest,” concluded study author Jens Jakob Andersen of RunRepeat.com, who estimates that women are 18% better at maintaining a consistent and controlled pace during the first and final stretches of a marathon.
This new study corroborates previous research findings that men slow down more than women in marathons, although more investigation is needed to determine exactly why that is.
Andersen’s findings also match up with triathlon research. A 2009 study of 12 elite athletes (six males and six females) competing in an ITU World Cup event found that during the run, men had a significant decrease in speed throughout the course, while women only slowed down during uphills and downhills.
Pacing in swimming and cycling has not been as well-documented as running, but the tri-related literature generally suggests that of the three disciplines, the swim yields the smallest time differences between men and women.
The study of 12 pro triathletes revealed that in the bike leg, men’s speed and power output decreased after the first lap, while women spent more time above maximal aerobic power in the hills. More recent research contentiously concluded that females consistently start the cycling leg at faster speeds than males in sprint, Olympic, half-Ironman and Ironman distance triathlons.
Age has yet to be explored scientifically as a factor of pacing in triathlons, although studies indicate that older runners tended to have a more even pace than younger runners during marathons. Andersen’s study found that the best pacers were from the 35-39 and 40-44 age groups, while the youngest (0-19) and oldest (+70) runners tended to “burn out dramatically”.
Research findings vary slightly as to the peak age for triathlon performance, but it doesn’t veer far from the 30-34 age range. One study found that while there were no significant differences in women’s peak ages across all three disciplines, the best male swimmers were about six years younger than the best male runners.
Another study, published last year, tracked the top 10 male and female placers at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii from 1983 to 2012. The results? Top-ranking triathletes have gotten older – current average ages are 34 for men and 35 for women – as well as faster over the last three decades, and this is true for both genders.
Apart from sex and age, triathlon pacing is also influenced by a bunch of other factors, such as weather and terrain conditions, distance, drafting rules and transition.
What researchers seem to agree on is that the run is the most crucial leg in deciding one’s total time, so a good pace during the run can make a world of difference. Andersen’s suggestions for improved marathon pacing includes starting out “slower than what feels natural” and slowing down as soon as you think you can’t maintain your planned pace, so you can avoid burning out in later stages of the race.

According to a YouGov poll of over 2,000 British adults, more than half of respondents think the UK government should be investing in cycling.
Nearly a third (31%) of respondents said they were more likely to get around by bike if more cycle lanes were separated from traffic on busy roads. Over a third (33%) said the dangers to cyclists discourage them from hopping on their bikes more.
In a separate YouGov poll of 959 adults in nine major UK cities, 54% said they support additional investment in making local cycling routes safer, even if it meant decreased spending for the benefit of other road users.
Politicians, in particular, should pay attention to the results: in the larger poll, 27% said they would have a more positive opinion of an electoral candidate who campaigned for cycling – a sentiment echoed by 47% of respondents in the second survey.
“Being able to get about by bike has become a serious issue for the British voter; candidates looking for success in the coming general election would do right to recognise this,” said Claire Francis, Head of Campaigns at active travel charity Sustrans, which commissioned the main survey.
“Despite these new figures, the Infrastructure Bill, which the government hopes to make law by March, is set to deliver the biggest shake up to the roads network in a generation, yet has no strategy for cycling,” Francis adds.
“We must change the Infrastructure Bill’s narrow focus on motor traffic and invest in cycling to extend travel choice, to ease congestion, improve our health and our environment.”
The poll results have already sparked some debate on Twitter…

Earlier this week, British Cycling, Sustrans and a handful of other sustainable transport organisations issued a joint statement calling for the inclusion of a Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy in the Infrastructure Bill.

“It is not without irony that this falls so soon after the latest 12-year study from Cambridge University found that inactivity is killing twice as many people as obesity,” the statement read in part.
“This is combined with the fact that inactivity costs the UK economy £20 billion every year, with one in six deaths linked to physical inactivity. We must act now and make cycling and walking easier to do every day.”
The Infrastructure Bill will be voted on by Parliament on Monday (26 January).
