Last Week in Las Vegas Sports (May 8 – 14)

The Las Vegas Aces go 2-1 in their first three games, the Raiders pick up a new wide receiver, and everything else that happened last week in Las Vegas sports!

#6 MJF raises the stakes for his match against Wardlow

Wardlow and MJF have been on a collision course for weeks now, and it seems like AEW fans are finally going to get to see the two square off. Of course, the Double or Nothing match comes with a load of conditions, including a belt lashing and a steel cage match, but it will just make the show in Las Vegas all the more satisfying. MJF agreed to free Wardlow from his contract if he won; however, if he loses, he forfeits the right to ever sign with AEW. This is going to be a must-see pay-per-view.

#5 Las Vegas Aces top power rankings after strong start

We expect a lot from the Las Vegas Aces this year, and the team has lived up to the hype so far. They went 2-1 in their first three games of the year, knocking off the Seattle Storm and the Phoenix Mercy before falling to the Washington Mystics. Still, the team managed to jump from fifth to first in the rankings. That has to be a very good feeling for coach Becky Hammon. The loss to the Mystics was troubling, there’s still a lot to be proud of.

#4 Kyle and Samantha Busch welcome a second child

Kyle Busch might have had a tough weekend at Darlington, especially after contact with Brad Keselowski ended his day early, but none of that matters. The Las Vegas native his wife welcomed their second child last week! 

#3 Kelsey Plum speaks out after Las Vegas Aces first loss of the season.

The Las Vegas Aces lost to Tthe Washington Mystics on last Tuesday and Kelsey Plum claims that the WNBA s travel schedule is to blame.  

I think I m the best-conditioned player in this league, respectfully, and I feel like to play that type of game against Seattle (Sunday), then to get on a delayed flight for five and a half hours, fly across the country, wake up and play the next day, I mean, I was tired today,” Plum said

If you guys have ever watched me play, I can go all day. So I don t think it s necessarily conditioning as it s just the setup of the schedule. I mean, let s be real, I mean, I m not here to blame a charter flight for the reason that we lost, but normally a team would fly out that night and have that whole day to rest and get your legs back under you and then go play the next day. So you know those little things make a difference. Hopefully, we re on our way.

#2 Big changes coming to The Las Vegas Money in the Bank pay per view

WWE Money in the Bank is set to take place on July 2 at Allegiant Stadium, and rumors are already starting to fly about the event. While some of them center around whether Roman Reigns will defend his Undisputed title or not, there is a growing concern that WWE might be looking to change the format of the show.

Cody Rhodes did a promotional video inside Allegiant Stadium to hype the upcoming event and he had some very interesting words for fans.  He claims that the winner of The Money in the Bank briefcase won’t get a title shot at a time of their choosing, instead,  winning the match will give the winner a main event WrestleMania title shot. 

Whether WWE goes through with this gimmick remains to be seen, but it would be an interesting change of pace for the company.

#1 Las Vegas Raiders sign Keelan Cole to 1-year deal

The Las Vegas Raiders might have powerful weapons like Davantae Adams, Darren Waller, and Hunter Renfrow heading into the 2022 season, but there’s always room for more depth. That seems to be why Las Vegas decided to sign Keelan Cole to a one-year deal with the organization. The former New York Jet amassed  449 yards off of 28 passes and a touchdown last season and could improve those numbers under Derek Carr. 

No further details have been offered on the deal..
