You know what we're missing around here?  A wrestling thread!  Truly an industry with talent from all over the world, wrestling history goes all the way back to the ancient Olympics where gladiators battled to the death in the pankration event.  Too bad we don't give a shit about that anymore, thanks to the likes of the NWA, WWE, WCW, ECW, NWA-TNA, and countless other wrestling organizations around.

So, lets lace up the boots, break out the steel chairs, and polish those championship belts, and talk some wrestling (or "rasslin'", if you prefer) JPH!P style!

YEAH!! I guess I admit - I watch it every now and then.  I miss some storylines but basically you know what's gonna happen and it's a good product.

Favorite wrestlers of all time?? Macho Man Randy Savage. The Ultamite Warrior and their feuds. hahaha. RIP Miss Elizabeth. The Rock. Stone Cold Steve Austin. yeah loved that whole "Fuck you McMahon" story.

I watch RAW cuz fuck Smackdown SUCKS!! I don't like Cena and his lame rapping. And how the fuck does Bradshaw hold the title for so long??? At least RAW has the Canadian content Trish, Edge, Jericho, and Christian. They so funny...Trish beating up Christy Hemme. DAMN I got get that Playboy.


One of the funny things I heard in recent weeks. When The Rock was on Conan O'Brien, he said the most embarassing thing that happened was when he was on the ropes doing his trademark fist in the air pose - he noticed in a photo that one of his balls was hanging out  :lol:

So as you guys know, I live in Winnipeg, Canada.  Last week there was a taped PPV event by the AWE (Action Wrestling Entertainment) at the University of Manitoba, and it was pretty awesome!  Who the fuck cares about an independent wrestling organization, you ask?  Well I certainly didn't, up until I found out that certain former WWE stars were going to be there!  Namely Jamie Noble, Billy Gunn, Rikishi, and Hacksaw Jim Duggan!!  That's right, Hacksaw Jim muvafuckin' Duggan!!  These guys were all working with new young upstarting talents that want to get into the business, and Jamie Noble even jobbed to a kid named Shawn Houston in the first match!  All in all it was a hell of a card, and my buddy johnbobman (who for some reason hasn't signed up on this board yet  :x ) shot some pics and vids on his digicam.

A bunch of really skinny guys with a bunch of fat guys in a battle royal.  http://rapidshare.de/files/903968/186_8659.AVI.html

Ah, good ol' Hacksaw! http://rapidshare.de/files/904148/186_8697.AVI.html

Yeah, that was pretty funny shit.   :lol:   Anyway, its supposed to be on PPV in April, so I'm keeping my eyes open for it to appear online or something.  They've got a site:  http://www.aweheat.com but I don't think there's a lot happening, I think their ultimate goal is to get a weekly show on Canadian tv.

I'll up the pics he took too, but I'm feeling kinda lazy tonight.

Oh, of course I watch WWE, but this was something being done at the University of Manitoba, so it was hella cheap, and it was televised!  For $25 each, 5 of us went and got 2nd row - there were probably around 1500 people or so.  And Rikishi DID do the Stinkface AND the Banzai drop to some poor guy!  At the end, he was about to stinkface Billy Gunn, who had attacked Wavel Starr (from Winnipeg too, I believe - he's been on Heat and Velocity, but hasn't yet gotten a developmental contract) and The Mecca Shane Madison, but the G Man slipped out of the ring.

Everyone did 2 matches, so you know they were taping 2 weeks worth of programming.  Me and my boys were definitely on camera for this one.  Can't wait to watch it on tv!  Or download it, either or.

Man, I saw it coming the whole time.  She was always, "Oh are you sure you wanna do this?' all doubting the Legend Killer.  Hey, he's gotta make a name for himself once again, now that he's gonna get lost in mid card hell, just like Benoit, Jericho, and Kane - all former champs I might add.  What about the rumours of him jumping to Smackdown?  They could use him.

Post by: street bastard on March 24, 2005, 02:35:34 AM
I hope they keep Orton as a heel. The best thing about him is that he's a prick, and he can't be as much of one as a face.

I heard that they were gonna shuffle up the rosters like they did last time. I think it'd be cool if Jericho went to Smackdown. He'd prolly get the title there.

I hate the way Smackdown pushes their wrestlers. Actually the problem is they DON'T push them. It's like oh, we're supposed to think Heidenrich is the shit cause he picks on refs and Michael Cole? Or Orlando Jordan is worthy of the U.S. Belt cause he rolls with J.B.L.? Or Luther Reigns might have a chance against the Undertaker cause he beat Nunzio? Most of Smackdown's mid carders suck balls.

I would love to see Christian turn face, just for a change.  He's been a heel for so long, and he's one of the best workers WWE's got, in terms of helping out new talent and that kind of thing.  Christian and Tomko could have a feud or some shit, which would probably get them more tv time.

To Sensational Sherri?  They were watching a VTR of HBK moments and Sherri was smiling after it was done, and Kurt thought that she was laughing at him.  So he grabs her by the hair and faceplants her ugly mug to the ground, slaps on the ankle lock and makes that bitch tap!!!  I gotta admit - she's one fulgy bitch.

Definitely fugly. And she's gotten really fat too.  You can tell that time has NOT been good to her.  And that singing?  Man I wanted to take a screwdriver and dig out my eardrums it was so bad.   :x  :x  :x

I definitely agree that the Eddie-Rey match is gonna be the shit!  Man, the "high spots' those two are gonna put on are gonna blow the roof!!!  McMahon had better put their match in the latter have of the PPV so as to not waste it.

Hahaha, two weeks in a row on Raw, there's an audio fuck up!!!  Man, why didn't they fire the fucker last week when he played Charlie Haas' music at the wrong time? :lol:

For those of you who didn't see it, they played Mohammad Hassan's music at the end of his match with HBK, after he took some sweet chin music, and Kurt Angle scrambling from the ring.  Then they stopped it right away, and played the proper music for HBK.

Yeah daigong man, as if you missed Scary Sherri tap out like a little bitch last week!  They'll show clips of it during WrestleMania anyway - they have to.  Too bad the Junos will be on at the same time, which beyond my control, I was not able to buy a ticket.  The WWE puts out the greatest VTRs ever created - mad props to their video editors. :cheers

Wow, talk about a predictable WrestleMania.  I watched it at a buddy's house, and won some cashola betting on the outcomes of the matches.  I only missed the Angle/HBK match, which was fucking amazing, btw.  Randy Orton is far better as a heel, and I hope they bring him to SmackDown to continue this feud with Undertaker.

Bringing out Hogan was predictable too. :lmao: I like Batista as champion tho but I bet it won't last.

If Orton is heel, then shouldn't he crawl back to Evolution? But I think I did read about a roster shakeup amongst Smackdown and Raw.

Austin was cool.  He got Piper drunk (at least it looked like he was) and then stunned him.  He also beat up on Carlito.   :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Am I the only one who thought the title matches completely sucked ass?  Especially the JBL-Cena one, that was fucking hella short!  Man, what a gyp!!!   :x  :x  :x

The Angle/Michaels match was my fave.  It was one high spot followed by another followed by another!!!  :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t:

And what about Benoit?  Was he really hurt or was it part of the match?  It looked like he really did mess his shoulder up.  Oh well, gonna have to watch RAW tonite to find out.

I missed the first 2 matches, I was still at work, and fighting traffic for the Juno Awards.  Stupid Juno Awards.  Anyway, from the matches I did see, the whole thing seemed hella boring.  JBL and Cena was not the high impact, emotion filled scrap that I was expecting.  With all the buildup of Cena being angry and everything, and not being able to hit him, and the match only lasted like what, 10 or 15 mins?  That's what it seemed like to me anyway.  HHH and Batista put on a match that I expected them to have.  Neither of them have long endurance, so it was just one big move followed by Ric Flair cheating on the outside, to another big move, to a reverse chin lock, (you know, the "rest" moves) and so on and so on.

But I bow down to HBK and Kurt Angle.  I hope they can keep this feud going.  That'd be crazy.

hmm...icic. I am tempted to DL the Hall of Fame ceremony or maybe the whole shit if a torrent pops up. Fuck, I also wanted to see how the Money In the Bank went. And I heard about Christy Hemme nearly popping out of her clothes  :jerk:

Last Wrestlemania I saw in full was like in 2001...what was that 17? The one where The Rock beat Stone Cold and Shane flew like across the ring into a garbage can and knocked out his dad. and the classic 3 tag team TLC match.

Tonite's RAW was OK. I liked how Benjamin, Jericho, and Christian "limped" towards the ring. Edge has no chance in hell with whoever he's gonna face for the Heavyweight title haha.


yeah! fuck the Junos!! we had em last year and the only celebs that came was that Jim Cudding or whatever and their lame-ass hockey game.

Anyone watch SmackDown! this week?  Just wanted to say that Cena's new spinner belt doesn't look as shitty as I thought it was going to.  Like, the US title spinner belt that he had?  That was fuckin' stupid, I'm sorry.  I thought it was ok at first, but it just wasn't right.  This new belt is like a mix of oldschool and newschool, and looks pretty good.

And I was SO hoping that the Rockers were going to get back together again to face Davari and Hassan, but I guess not.  Man, they should have Hogan's last match in Montreal man, so they could give him the insane ovation that only Montreal can give.

M-N-M?  How lazy must you be when you have to copy someone else's stage name for your tag team?  And what's up with letting them win the belts the first time out?  I mean, even with the interference from their chick (BTW I LOVED the way she entered the ring during their intro.  :jerk:  :jerk:  :jerk: ), it's weird that the writers would let them have the belts right away.  I mean, what about the guys who've paid their dues for so many years?  Dudes like Bob Holly for example.  They go out and work their asses off, and they get little recognition from the writers.  Sure the fans know and give their props to them, but the writers always seem to want to hype up the new kids.

On a side note, that was a waste of a perfectly good lowrider.  :(  :(  :(

A lot of titles have been passed around early on recently.  I think part of it has to do with seeing how the new talent would react to the responsibility of having the belts.  I still don't like the idea tho.  When MNM came out I was just expecting to hear Billy and Chuck's old music - "Youuuuuuu looooooook soooooooo-oh, good to me."

And yeah, that chick that's with them - she got bigass titties.  :bouncy boobs:

I didn't find any of the matches particularly interesting, though.  The thing they did with Regal and Tajiri was nice, though it seemed pretty obvious when they started dancing with the girls that something shitty was about to go down.

Hate to be a nit-picker,  but gotta make a few corrections:

a) It was Demolition, they never had the word "Men" in their name.

b) It was Papa Shango, spelled with an "a", not "o"

and

c) It's WWE now.  The acronym "WWF" has been legally tradmarked by the "World Wildlife Fund".  Vince lost a case in court over it which is why he had to change it to WWE.

Ok, ok, ok, I admit it...I like being a nit-picker.

Ok, I haven't been keeping up with wrestling for a while, but after watching Raw this week, I've come to a few new conclusions.

1.  Y2J is jobbing a lot lately.  A LOT.
2.  Lita really is a little slut.  Matt deserves better.

Sweet! A wrestling thread. It's nice to see a H!P board with a decent wrestling fanbase. It's definitely what the other forums I posted at were lacking. I'm a HUUUGE wrestling fanatic. I buy the merchandise, watch the shows every week (yep, even Smackdown...that crap fest), and I attend the shows. I bought floor seats for a RAW houseshow that's coming to Seattle next week. I'm only 3 rows away from the ring, woooo! They need to have some PPV's and televised shows here.

My current favorite wrestlers: Randy Orton, Chris Benoit, The Rock (COME BACK, ROCKY!), Captain Charisma, Y2J, Muhammad Hassan, Kurt Angle, Booker T, and JBL.

Anyhow, my thoughts on this weeks RAW:

-I laugh every time Hassan's music hits. I just love it! AILIYAH AILIYAH AILIYAHHHHHHH!

-Do I see a possible Y2J heel turn? I sure hope so...seeing as how RAW's really lacking in the heel department, and Y2J's been pretty stale as a face

-Haha, I'm liking the Big Vis gimmick. I wonder how far they're gonna go with this

-Hmmm, a Flair face turn? Maybe. I know they've teased us a few times already, but I think this time he might actually turn on Triple H.

-Wow, the tag team division has gone down the gutter. Giving the titles to Hurricane and Rosey...ugh.

-Enough with the Masterlock challenges *yawn* When is this talentless musclehead actually going to wrestle?

-WOOOO! Orton was on RAW! Man, he's gotten really skinny in a month. That Justin Timberlake haircut sure doesn't suit him. I hope he comes back with his usual pretty boy gelled hair look. LoL at Vince for making fun of his haircut

-It looks like they're going with the Lita/Edge love angle. Does this mean that they'll bring back V.1? Some have been speculating...I sure hope so! Edge sucks! I've always hated that talentless loser, even before this Matt Hardy situation. His recent main event push just boggles the mind.

i used to watch wrestling a lot but havent been doin so cuz ive been busy.  but i took a peek at smackdown last week and saw a highlight of akebono facing off against the big show in a sumo match at wrestlemania.  thats pretty crazy.  akebono suks in k-1 so i think professional wrestling is a better choice for him.  he can smush the original yokozuna, although he's already dead...  and i final word.

big show suks.

Some more thoughts:

-JR had me ROFFLING at the end of RAW. "BAH GAWD, THAT'S A MAN'S WIFE! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU PEOPLE THINKING HERE!? WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING!? YOU'LL PAY FOR THAT SOMEDAY! YOU'LL PAY FOR THAT! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!?" You gotta love JR's crazy ass commentating...

-The Nebraskan crowd was awesome! Definitely the liveliest crowd I've heard in YEARS. I wish the WWE could have more hot crowds like this...I hate it when they go to places where it just seems like they don't care about anything that's going on. This arena easily puts any other arena to shame.

Apparently you've forgotten about the Raw after Wrestlemania X8 in Montreal?  And how the crowd literally wouldn't let Hulk Hogan say a word for a good 10 mins or so, because they were cheering soooooo loud for sooooo long, it cut their tv time?  And then every week after that, the directors and producers and everyone else made it SEEM like it was like that in every arena, but it really wasn't?

Montreal.  Who else can burst into "Na na nana, hey hey, goodbye" on command?

I guess I did. But the Skydome can fit...what, like 80,000 people? Maybe more, maybe less. Obviously they'll sounder louder because of the amount of people. The Qwest arena can fit 10,000 at most, and the crowd was absolutely amazing. They sounded just as loud as the Montreal crowd from what I remember. The Montreal crowd during WM X8 were nothing but a bunch of Hogan marks anyhow...I was real pissed when they booed the hell out of The Rock.

Anyhow, WWE needs more arenas like last nights. Remember last years WM XX MSG crowd? DEAD SILENT throughout the event. I was disgusted with their lack of cheering. It's Wrestlemania people, the grand daddy of em all!

Not to be a nitpicker, but WrestleMania X8 wasn't held in Montreal.  It was held in Toronto.  The amazing response for Hulk Hogan I'm referring to was on Raw, the day after WMX8, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, which can hold up to 21,500 people.

As far as Toronto booing the hell out of The Rock, it wasn't completely due to him wrestling against Hulk Hogan - part of it was because the fans knew that Rocky only really has like what, 6 actual wrestling moves?  As a wrestler, both of them are just awful when it comes to actual in ring skillz.  But, when was the last time before WMX8 that anywone was supposed to cheering for Hulk Hogan?

So there'll only be one person drafted per week per side?  That's pretty weak, IMHO.  Why would they want to stretch it out?  Have the draft all in one episode, it creates more tension that way.  Doing it one per week will turn it into just another temp "skit" to do on the shows, like the Highlight Reel or Carlito's Cabana.

That's true.  Hogan and Rock's popularity was always more due to their mic skills than with their wrestling skills.  Both of them were primarily brawlers, not mat technicians.  Put either of them in a WRESTLING match with, say, Angle, Benoit, or Bret Hart, they'd get their asses whupped in a heartbeat.  It got to the point where certain sequences for Hogan/Rock were so choreographed that one could count them off as they happened (this is especially true with Hogan).  Also, at WMX8, practically every serious wrestling fan already knew that: a)Rock was going to have a heel turn in the not too distant future, and b) Rock was going to quit the business soon to go Hollywood.  In regards to a), the fans were saying, "hurry up and become a heel already, here's a bunch of boos to help you along!".  In regards to b), they were upset that he'd be leaving the company.

Well when you said the WMX8 crowd in Montreal, I thought you were still referring to the Toronto crowd. That's why I also said Montreal...I was pretty positive that it was in Toronto before I read your post. No seriously, I was! :P

Yeah, I was kind of disappointed that he lost, but I saw it coming. They're trying to push Masters as an "unstoppable force", so making him job to Richards wouldn't have done him any good. But I'd like to see this feud go somewhere.

So I went to a SmackDown house show tonight at the new MTS Centre in downtown Winnipeg.  Not a great show, but whatever.  Anyway, the important thing is that there was a title match for the US Title between Orlando Jordan and Rey Mysterio.  About 5 mins into the match, Orlando is lying in the turnbuckle, and Rey is standing over him punching him in the head, with the crowd counting along.  All of a sudden, he slips off of the rope for no apparent reason, and lands awkwardly on his right leg.  They finish the match in a schmoz, with Orlando cheating to win, but clearly Rey's ankle, or knee, is bothering him, and had to be helped out to the back.  So, look for something on tv this week saying something about Rey being injured or something.

Seriously?  I think the attitude days were awful.  That was the time that Nitro was beating Raw in the ratings, and it seemed to me like the Federation was just trying a bunch of different "groups" (NOD, Los Boricuas, DX, Kaientai, etc) to sort of play to the insanely successful (at the time) nWo.

My favorite era in wrestling had to be from around 89/90 to around 1994.  Back then I was too young to accept the fact that wrestling was predetermined, so it was so much more emotionally captivating, as well as there were no people on the internet trying to predict what was going to happen next, and spoiling the show, and all that kind of stuff.  I mean, what we're doing is ok, we're talking about the past and present, as opposed to "Ok, I know what happens next week!" kinda crap.

Well...I meant mid 98 until the end of 99. Yeah, WWE was pretty bad in 97. But I really liked the NOD and DX factions! I'm glad that I stuck with WWE during the ratings wars, even through thick and thin (I only switched to Nitro every once in awhile).


Anyhow, I went to a WWE RAW house show last week, and it ruled! I had REALLY good seats (E Floor, 3rd row)...I was so close that I actually got to touch a few of the wrestlers. I touched Edge's hair! Not that it's anything to brag about, haha. Some pics:

Hey Kenji, I just looked at your video compilation.  Just a question, who was the guy standing outside the ring during the Y2J vs Hassan match?  He was wearing a leather jacket and a plaid kilt I think, which would lead me to suggest that it was Roddy Piper - but why would Hot Rod be at a house show?

So I was surprised to see Sandman on Smackdown! with the rest of the ECW crew.  I know its been a few years since he's worked in a major circuit, but man, does he ever look out of shape.  However to see Chris Benoit drafted back to Smackdown! was kind of a surprise.  He's always jumping back and forth between shows.

Yep, it's Roddy Piper. Not sure why he showed up, but it was damn cool anyhow...the entire arena went nuts.

Nah, I think if they get back Cena, and add HBK and Christian, then we got a okay roster.  Enough mid-card to main eventers atleast.

Did ANYONE catch the ECW show last night?  If not, I'm still looking for the torrent.  I heard it was crazy, with Paul Heyman, RVD, AND Joey Styles doing shoots on the show. :lol:

When the DVDs come out, I'm defenitely getting One Night Stand and Hardcore Homecoming. :D

A friend of mine wanted to go watch it, so he and I went to his co-worker's apartment (dude's got satellite).  I was actually kinda disappointed that the WWE faction didn't get more actively involved in trying to "stop" the PPV.  The way that they kept on going on and on (on both RAW and SD) about how they were gonna put a stop to ECW, I figured they might actually physically get involved.  You know, sorta like when nWo first came to WCW and did their thing.  Maybe my expectations are too high.

Man, what an awesome RAW! Probably my favorite RAW in quite awhile. Kurt Angle getting drafted over to RAW definitely took me by surprise. I hope they'll be able to drop Angle's horrible "pervert" gimmick. It's nice to see Angle and Triple H feuding again. Angle's comment about Stephanie= PWNAGE. Cena and Angle will be able to start a number of other interesting feuds on RAW.

Jericho finally turned heel, wooo! Cena's gonna be defending his title against Christian and Y2J at Vengeance? Awesome! I really wonder how this draft is going to affect Smackdown, though. Will Cena get drafted back? For some reason, it seems like Smackdown's getting the short end of the stick...Man, I fear for the RAW roster. I don't want them to lose anyone else!

Ok, ECW One Night Stand was freakin' awesome.  I need not post match results or anything, but I must say that Mike Awesome vs Masato Tanaka was THE match of the night - moreso than the main event (which was riddled with very cool nostalgic cameos, but took away from the match itself), IMHO.  RVD's and Paul Heyman's shoots were great.  Just like the old days I guess, even though I only started got into it when it was on TNN.  Great show.  Great fuckin' show.

I'll wait til the end of the week before I post my Fantasy League results. So far, I'm ranked 1620 with 119 points.

Spoilers for Smackdown:








MAN! WTF! ORTON GOT DRAFTED TO SMACKDOWN!?!?!?! AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!111111

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!1111 :(


Kurt getting drafted over to RAW got me so excited, too. Smackdown's already struggling, I don't see how drafting Orton will help the show AT ALL...seeing as how he still has two months or so until he comes back. The matches for this week sound horrible: JBL vs. Undertaker? The hell? The Undertaker hasn't come out for like 500 years. Benoit vs. Doug Basham? Eddie vs London? OJ vs Holly? WTF.

Right now, Smackdown's looking really week. Hopefully they get Cena back, and also get Jericho and Christian.

I had heard rumors about that, like, 2 or 3 months ago (whenever it was that he got injured).  Apparently the whole thing between him and Undertaker was the first step to bringing him over to SD.  It's also why they turned him heel again.  They need more/better heels on SD.

He was referring to a storyline that took place a few years ago. I don't remember the whole thing, but on RAW, they were going to renew their wedding vows, but triple H for some reason I don't remember got angry at Steph and wrecked the setup in the ring and pedigreed Steph. After that they got a divorce. They are still dating in real life, though.

Makes me miss it, but I kinda get the feeling that it'll get old after a while, plus as mentioned on the "Rise and Fall of ECW" DVD, if ECW wanted to become big, they'd have to water themselves down - and it just won't be ECW if that were the case.

I saw the first few matches from ECW ONS...pretty solid so far. The 3 way dance was kinda half assed, though. The matches from a few years back were so much better.

Tonights Smackdown wasn't too bad. Then again, any show with Orton= Good...even if it's only a promo. I can't wait until he's medically cleared so he can kick Takers ass.

The Eddie/Rey match was top notch. I kinda cringed when Rey got thrown into the steel steps...it looked like he hit his head pretty hard.

Hmm, I wonder who's going to win that 6 way dance next week. I'm rooting for JBL or Hassan. I really hope they bring Cena back. You know, Smackdown's really lacking in the face department right now. While they do have quite a few heels, the only top faces they have at the moment are: Rey, Benoit, Booker T, Big Show, and Taker (who comes out like once a year). So that's not saying much AT ALL. They're in serious need of two more top faces. Booker T and Show just aren't going to cut it. Send those jobbers to RAW! >_>

The Mexicools... :lol:

Truthfully, I'm not sure WHAT to think of them at the moment. Their gimmick intrigues me, that's for sure. I wonder how far they're gonna go with this...knowing the WWE, they'll probably end up in Velocity hell in a matter of months. I'm hoping that they turn them into an unstoppable force with Eddie and Chavo joining. Then Rey-Rey, and some of the other top faces can feud against them.

That lawnmower was amusing, but man...Juvvy's English was just horrible. I could hardly understand him as well. I would have been embarassed if I was a Mexican in the arena. :D

On another note, DANG Michelle McCool is hot. She's probably my favorite Diva search girl. I see that she's gotten implants...nice. Melina's also quite hot herself. I'm actually looking forward to their match next week, believe it or not.

WOOOOOOOOOOO! FINALLY! SMACKDOWN DOESN'T GET THE SHORT END OF THE STICK! Major spoilers:










The final picks for Smackdown were Christian and Batista. So here's how the draft lottery went for both shows:

RAW

1. John Cena
2. Kurt Angle
3. Carlito
4. Big Show
5. RVD

Smackdown!

1. Chris Benoit
2. Randy Orton
3. Muhammad Hassan & Daivari
4. Christian
5. Batista

I'd say Smackdown got the better draft this time around. I'm so happy too, 'cause I was real worried that Orton would get stuck on the B show. But it looks like they're trying to make both brands equal again. Hell, RAW might be the inferior brand now...'cause their lineup of top superstars just doesn't look as impressive now. Here's how it stacks up for RAW:

Top faces

1. John Cena
2. HBK
3. RVD
4. Big Show
5. Kane
6. Shelton Benjamin
7. Viscera

Top heels:

1. Triple H
2. Kurt Angle
3. Edge
4. Chris Jericho
5. Carlito
6. Gene Snitsky
7. Chris Masters

Although their heel lineup looks impressive, the top faces are pretty lacking. It almost reminds me of Smackdowns old lineup before the draft lottery. However, Smackdown's lineup looks A LOT more solid:

Top faces:

1. Batista
2. Chris Benoit
3. Undertaker
4. Booker T
5. Rey Mysterio
6. Heidenreich

Top heels:

1. JBL
2. Randy Orton
3. Eddie Guerrero
4. Christian
5. Muhammad Hassan
6. Matt Morgan

Actually, I've noticed that while both brands have pretty good heels, they're lacking in the face department. But it looks like Smackdown FINALLY got the better of the draft this time around. All I know is that I have a reason to watch Smackdown now. I hope there's no ridiculous trades or anything.

Only thing that bothers me is, where does this leave Christian and Edge in the title picture?  I was expecting Edge and Christian winning BOTH come Summerslam, but the draft changed everything, and I can't imagine them winning either atleast until the Survivor Series - if not the Rumble.

Post by: Kenji on June 29, 2005, 07:12:44 AM
I can imagine Edge winning a title, but I don't see Christian winning one for awhile. He'll probably be in the title hunt though, since I think they're trying to push him to main event status on Smackdown now. What I smell though is an Orton/Batista feud come Survivor Series...if they don't trade Batista back, that is. Orton's probably going to get pushed for the title again, and I wouldn't be surprised if he wins it within the next few months.

Was I the only one last night who WASN'T happy to see Hogan? I was actually hoping that The Rock would be the secret tag team partner, 'cause they were in Hollywood and all. Hogan was cool 15 years ago, people...I'm sick of him doing the same ass shit. Jericho's jab at Nash was awesome though.

Worst RAW I've seen in years...though the HBK heel turn might make things interesting. Right now, RAW's REALLY lacking in the face department. So they've got Cena as a top face...then who? Kane, Big Show, and Shelton? Give me a break. Anyhow, here's some breaking news:



"WWE.com announced today the release of Gangrel, Billy Kidman, Shannon Moore, Akio, Maven and Mark Jindrak. And of course, WWE wishes them all well in their future endeavors.

Gangrel was signed to a developmental deal back in the fall after making some appearances on Smackdown. He had some personal problems to attend to which halted his training at OVW. WWE must not have seen much in him and just finally pulled the plug.

Billy Kidman, Shannon Moore and Akio were mainstays on Velocity, but just could not get over with the fans it seemed. Billy Kidman's release should be devastating to Smackdown Diva Torrie Wilson.

Mark Jindrak was traded to the Raw brand just last week. While he was athletic, he couldn't seem to get over at all after two years.

And the Maven-Tough Enough project has come to an end after four years. Now both winners of the original Tough Enough have been axed, the other one being Nidia of course. Also, Chris Nowinski is more than likely retired and Josh Mathews is an announcer, so thus there are no actual wrestlers on today's WWE roster from that original series of Tough Enough.

Vince McMahon had a meeting with WWE wrestlers before last week's supershow and said that releases were coming soon. He noted that wrestlers who hadn't done what it took to get even a little over with the fans were the people mostly likely to get handed a pink slip. And most of the projected suspects to get released were in fact released today.

In addition to the 6 WWE superstars that were released from the company earlier today, it has been announced that World Wrestling Entertainment is also releasing Kevin "Mordecai" Fertig and Spike Dudley.

Fertig has a quick cup of coffee on the main WWE roster, with his biggest match being against Hardcore Holly at last year's Great American Bash. He was quickly sent back to OVW for training when it was decided that he had not gotten over well with fans.

Spike Dudley is a former WWE Tag Team Champion and Cruiserweight Champion, and was last seen helping the Dudley Boyz light their flaming table at ECW's "One Night Stand". Spike was dealing with injuries from a match he worked before the ECW PPV, which is why he didn't wrestle at the event."

I think I heard that Lesnar was going straight to Smackdown.

If so, it's going to be Lesnar vs. Batista by the end of the year, if not earlier.  Good for Lesnar, bad for guys like JBL and Captain Charisma, particularly the ladder, who I expected to see in the main event picture SOON. :(

That said, I hope Jericho kicks the shit out of John Cena, but I have a feeling Cena will be put over at Summerslam.  All of Cena's singles matches recently (except his last one with JBL) have been squash matches, so I almost wouldn't be surprised if Jericho got beat quick.

BTW....

The whole thing with Matt Hardy was a worked shoot. They tried to make it look like a shoot with Hardy jumping Edge out of nowhere, promoting ROH, using Edge's real name, etc. But honestly, there's no way in hell that Hardy could have entered the arena. Security is tight as hell, and he probably would have been arrested right away after he jumped Edge the first time. Plus, Edge playing that tape earlier in the night kind of foreshadowed things. WWE is continuing to make it look like a shoot by not mentioning the incident at all on their site. I think Hardy might have been re-hired a couple weeks back, and the WWE tried to make it look like he was leaving for a new angle.

I checked Hardy's message board, and todays incident is causing quite a commotion. Screw the fans that are turning on Matt 'cause he was being dishonest. It was a work, people...get over yourselves. I for one was surprised as hell to see him tonight, and I marked out big time.

Man, RAW has way too many "shows" now. Carlito's Cabana, The Highlight Reel, AND Piper's Pit? Jesus, I still think Jericho should have went to Smackdown. And although I like Lesnar, I'll be pissed if they make him feud with Batista right away. Christian needs to be champ, dammit!

Well, remember back in 97' when ECW invaded Raw is war?
Seems like the WWE is looking at ROH the same way the looked at ECW back then, plus they've recently acquired ROH champ  .... C.M Punk.
Maybe that has something to do with it.

or Vince is just letting Matt plug his match at ROH, who knows?


BTW, the whole Hardy incident on Raw yesterday was brilliant, IMO.
And so was that Angle invitational match with Matt Striker.

^ That's right..Vince has ties to ROH in the same way he did with ECW.  If Matt said "come see me at TNA!!!!", that's when I'll know security must have been shitty that night, but like Kenji said, security is always tight there.  They don't even let fans carry in certain signs anymore, so Matt would have been arrested at the door if this weren't a work.


As for those Matt fans complaining, they're all nuts.  Why are they even complaining?  Lita/Amy didn't cheat on them, so if Matt is over it, then they should be over it too.

Looks like Matt is continuing to make last night's incident look like a shoot:

If you guys are ready for a ride, jump the f*ck on. Well, I promised you all fireworks, so I hope I didn't disappoint. As of July 11th, 2005, my personal Independence Day, the Movement has begun-- and the Movement's purpose is two-fold. Purpose one--To never let anyone control what Matt Hardy says and does and thinks. Purpose two--To make Adam Copeland, Amy Dumas, and the WWE regret what they did to me, what they did to us. It's time for Matt Hardy to stand up for all the MFer's that have been chanting "We Want Matt", and "You Screwed Matt". Although you may not know this--you guys, the MFers, started the Movement months ago. I can now finally join the Movement because I am no longer controlled by the WWE. The McMahons, the Johnny Aces, and all of the WWE management can kiss my @$$. I did what I did tonight because for me to live with myself, Adam "Feces" Copeland must pay. I'm not going to let the WWE forget that they f*cked up when they released me instead of that scumbag home-wrecker. And Amy Dumas, you know what's it's like to have me as your closest ally--but you're gonna hate to see what it's like to have me as your worst enemy b*tch. Even though I didn't slash your tires FCF, slashed tires are going to be the least of your problems--Bank on it. A little message to the whore, the feces, and the horsesh*t "family" that is the WWE--Matt Hardy is like cancer, I don't go away and you won't find a cure. I thank EVERYONE that has supported me through thick and thin--I promise I will always be there for my MFers. I love you guys--and as I always say, without you, there is no me. I am going to turn a hugely negative situation into something that will benefit us. If you don't want to be able to predict what happens next, you're all in for a treat.

P.S. - If you're thinking about pressing charges Vince, I got a couple bucks, I'll fight it. Besides, I think I might have some pixs and video from a camera phone that shows your officers Rodney Kinging my @$$. My wrist is cut from the handcuffs, and I would suggest that there was a little unnecessary roughness involved in kicking me out of your building.

P.S.S. - And don't forget to catch Matt Hardy in action this Friday in Indiana, PA, this Saturday in Woodbridge, CT, and you never know where I'll show up on Sunday. And The Matt Hardy Show is so on...

Matt "F*cking" Hardy


Yeah, there's no way in hell that Matt could have talked on the mic for that long if it was a shoot. The security guards would have jumped his ass even before he tried to spit out his first sentence. :lol:

BTW, WWE.com posted an article today about Matt, which further proves that it's all a work.

Yeah as soon as I saw WWE.com posting Matt's article, that made me confirm it was a work. Although I was just thinking about how this incident came to be:

Vince: "Matt, I want you to attack Adam as if you hate him."

Matt: "But... I really hate him?"

Vince: "That's the point."

Being able to attack Edge while getting paid to do it. Huzzah!

So on SmackDown they finally "let it out" that Eddie is really Dominic's biological dad.  Was I the only one who totally saw this coming from a mile away?  I mean, with the fact that it was a "secret" involving Rey and Dominic, it wasn't hard to figure it out.  I've got to say, Dominic's acting was actually decent, considering his age and (likely) limited acting experience.

Also, I LOL'ed at Christian's "Peep Show".  The title's vey clever.  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  And Eddie's shirt!!! "I'M YOUR PAPI!!!"  Totally sweet!!!

I didn't think that they would let Y2J leave like that, at least let him leave in anger or something like, "Screw the WWE!" or something like that, a la Bret.  Or he should have hit Bischoff or something.  I read that he was upset for a while with the direction his character was going (aka "nowhere") and he's wanted to try his hand at other stuff.

I swear, he has the potential to be the biggest face if he decides to come back when Cena isn't champ.  Peg City reprazent!

Acting, eh?  Well, he had really good skills in handling the mic during his short stay in the biz.  Given some more professional acting lessons, I can see him pulling this off.  Unfortunately, recent political events and such just trashed his potentially excellent wrestling career.

Man...he was truly one of the great ones. Stunning. Choking back emotions watching RAW right now like all y'all.

I hope Chavo drops the Kerwin White shit and keeps the Guerrero name going, Eddie really did lead by example. Going through all his demons.

Forever ADDICTED TO LATINO HEAT .... RIP Eddie. :(

Oh man...what an ubelievable match Chavo had against JBL. He did drop the Kerwin White name. Choked up watching the whole match. Good job...and awesome that Eddie's wife will be getting all of our messages via WWE.com. Seeing Benoit and Triple H embrace in the ring, Eddie will be proud.

So his cause of death was just the years of abuse on his body...and he just celebrated his 4th year of sobriety.  :(

He lived his life to the fullest and had such a huge heart. If everyone just live a little like Eddie, the world would be a better place.

It was good to hear Bradshaw talk about Eddie, during the intermission.  They played as rivals for so long, yet we're really tight outside of the ring.  But it was good to see him go out and play the heel to Chavo (who did a great job memorializing Eddie).

From WWE

Randy Orton’s Revelation
December 16, 2005

After a week of supernatural mind games from Undertaker, Randy Orton answered back with a venomous setup of his own on Friday Night SmackDown.

By feigning retirement — saying his destiny wouldn’t be getting crippled inside Hell in a Cell — Randy coaxed Undertaker to the ring. Once there, Cowboy Bob Orton emerged from under a Druid’s hood, holding the Undertaker’s urn. With the distraction a success, Randy attacked, hitting an RKO on Undertaker. Randy then pummeled the Deadman with a steel chair, busting his head open. Randy appeared possessed — incited by the sight of Undertaker’s blood. “The Legend Killer” then hit Undertaker across the open wound with the urn. Will this mean Randy Orton has the advantage this Sunday in Hell in a Cell?

He is not retired

His demonstrations of strength were ok, but nothing that one wouldn't be able to see at a circus side show.  As a character he was mediocre at best doing the chocolate love bit, but he has no wrestling skills whatsoever.  Sure he can do power moves like some suplexes and various slams, but he can only do them one at a time.  He can't do any highspots, sequences, counters or combos.  There were even times that he couldn't take a bump well.  Viscera is bigger than Henry, and yet he's still more agile and quicker than Henry is, so you don't (or I didn't at least) get as board watching his matches since he wasn't as much of a slow, lumbering mass.

If you want to talk about awesome big men, there's Bam Bam Bigelow, Earthquake, Typhoon, and even King Kong Bundy. Big, massive, yet quick and quite agile for men of thier size. If Henry could have brought his skills up to thier level, he could've dne so much better and been a much bigger star.

Mark Henry didn't win at the Olympics.  He was the odds on favorite, but he didn't actually win.  I can't remember why.  He won a World's Strongest Man competition by ESPN a while later, and henceforth the gimmick.

I remember watching it.  He was only enterned in ONE of the weightlifting events, and on either his first or second attempt at one of the early rounds, his knee buckled and he lost his balance, thus failing to advance.

Nah, Chavo should not get a chance at the title, he does not deserve it. They should have morned his lost, do a special for him and then let the family and fans morn. To keep throwing some tragedy in your face over and over again, is just wrong especially since his daughters watch wwe religiously.

All wrestlers get picked up from some where, places like wrestling schools and indys like ROH (TNA) and from OVW (WWE)

not saying you're wrong  cause you said loosely most of the major wwe stars have been in other feds before, and tna is no exception in fact, and are they are a perfect example, because they haven't been established for many years (and may die in the next few years  :lol: )[/b]

If there's somebody in the WWE on steriods (and there's a bunch of them), it's Bobby Lashley.

I'm with you on Fire Pro Wrestling D, I played that forever. It's probably edged out by Fire Pro Returns for the PS2 now though, they're pretty much the same game but Returns has a better career mode and other improvements. As long as they don't change the basic gameplay though Fire Pro games will always be the best in my opinion. As far as the simulator games go I'm enjoying Smackdown vs Raw 2006, the grappling system isn't a patch on Fire Pro, but the huge amount of match types makes it pretty fun, especially the elimination chamber and a bunch of others that aren't in Fire Pro.

Damn, that sucks. He's one of best heels they've got. I guess the bright side is that 2 months isn't THAT long, but it makes you wonder what he's done because I can't see WWE wanting to sideline him unless it was something pretty bad. Vince usually lets his bigger stars get away with most stuff because he knows it hurts the shows to leave them out, so he must be pretty pissed about whatever it is Randy's done.

The grappling on Smackdown vs Raw series has always bothered me.  The features are nice (and, as always, the graphics of course) but the gameplay always hindered my enjoyment for that game greatly.  Not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination, but No Mercy still to this day feels like the truest wrestling simulator to me.

I think Wrestlemania was pretty good.  

The Foley vs. Edge match had some great moments, although I never figured out why Foley's shirt, previously doused in lighter fluid, didn't immediately catch on fire after he was speared onto the burning table.

The Vince vs. HBK match had some tremendous psychology.  Bad match, technically, but it built up so many possibilities, particularly a potential return of DX or HBK heal-turn.

The Triple Threat match was underwhelming.  I actually liked the post-WM Smackdown match between Mysterio vs. Orton better.  Great psychology in that match.

Speaking of the post-WM Smackdown match, was I the only guy that completely marked out at the tag match between London & Kendrick vs. MNM?  That was a stunning match, fast paced, with some great psychology.  I was really on the edge of my seat for the 2nd half of that match, and really loved the ending.  THAT is how a tag match should be booked.

Daigong told me to copy+paste this from my journal :lol:

Quote
I want to talk about wrestling o_o It's weird I've started to watch Raw and Smackdown and that I actually look forward to them now. It's just a shame I think we miss a lot of stuff - for example, there was supposed to be a match with Boogieman VS. Booker T (or something), but it's been 2 weeks and there are no signs of it. Also, sometimes when the commercial break ends it seems like we've suddenly missed like 5 min of the match and suddenly there are more people there than before commercial break and weird stuff like that. But oh well. I guess I'll live. xP (Also, we don't get Wrestlemania at all, at least that's what my brother said. So we'll miss the most important matches? ROFL OH GREAT.)

Anyway, it's really weird I like watching that stuff even if I dislike the actual matches. I don't like wrestling, it's mostly boring fighting with sweaty big guys smacking each other. Few characters actually have cool moves. RVD does (he also has a huge ass) and Mysterio has some due to his speed, ... And Boogieman has worms. But I guess that's it. Heh.

It's interesting how they really try hard to make some characters hateable. Like Orton and that Irish guy with shalele (?). They do so much unfair crap it can get really frustrating, like yesterday they showed matches that Mysterio and Angle were about to win, but then Orton came out of nowhere to wear them out so that their counterparts could win. Pathetic stuff like that, but in a way genius because it really makes one hate those characters, which seems to be the aim here.

Also, I think it's pretty weird I like Cena and find him handsome even if he's like the complete opposite of 'my type'. I don't like guys with huge muscles, and he's handsome in such a boring way. But I still like him. Weird, huh.

Whom I hate the most now though is the 'the world's strongest man', he's insanely huge and weighs almost 200kg or something. He always has the same expression and he's boring to watch because his wrestling moves aren't exactly creative. (...Pretty much nothing about him is creative or interesting.) Yesterday we had to stare at him 'crush' Kurt Angle by holding him still, making it hard for him to breathe and such. So ok, there's nothing interesting about watching a huge guy hug a smaller guy k (because that's what it looked like, hugging). Where's the action in that :/ If there has to be violence, at least be creative about it. Anyway, I really look forward to seeing him lose. Because eventually he has to lose to someone. Lawlz.

Singh is such a terrible wrestler it's not even funny. I had the (dis)pleasure of seeing him live a few years ago in Japan against the late great Chris Candido (R.I.P.).  He looks impressive (considering he's about the only 7+ footer who is in excellent physical shape), but he shouldn't be anywhere near a wrestling ring. Actually, I half take that back.  I think he may work in a limited "enforcer" role, but that's the extent of it.

Plus he's hardly in good physical shape anymore. Looks like he hasn't worked out in months. The last guy he needs to be feuding with is the Undertaker, those matches are going to be slow as hell and make the Undertaker vs Mark Henry matches look like classics.

They've been talking about it for a little less than a month now. Haven't you noticed how HHH isn't really "getting" along with "Mr. McMahon" right now on RAW (in the storyline)? Well, that's why. No definitive word yet on if it's going to be a permanent/long-term thing, of if it's just going to be a one time deal. Looks like it'll be done for a tag match with HHH and HBK versus McMahon and Shane-O at one of the upcoming PPV's.

Only HHH and HBK are still in WWE. Road Dogg and Billy Gunn are in TNA and X-Pac is missing. For new members, I don't know who would fit in, though Carlito would be cool (pardon the pun). DX was my fave group during that era and I would love to see them kick Spirit Squad's ass. Reviving the faction storylines is a lot better that those 'Kurt has the hots for Shramell' and ''Dominic isn't Rey's son' sotryline. Those were dumb arcs.

HI GUYS

I think I'm like a month late on wrestling on TV, but I'm downloading ECW One  night stand ppv right now. But hey, what's the WWE VS. ECW thing I heard of? A separate event?

Also, did I understand correctly that Cena's in ECW now?? That would suck because it means I won't see him on TV anymore :/ (Unless they start airing ECW)

& If any of you can find & recommend some classic wrestling matches on Youtube.com, link me! I've watched some myself, like The Undertaker VS. Mankind (with the two insane falls), but there's still much more left.

Post by: Aioros on June 19, 2006, 11:42:41 AM
ECW is now a WWE brand. They now have 3: Raw, Smackdown and ECW. Yes, you will still get to see John Cena coz ECW is aired on a different day(Tuesday, I think) so we get 3 WWE shows per week. So what happens is some ECW guys appear on Raw to do promos and some Raw guys do the same when they tape ECW.

I haven't watched any WWE mathces yet on youtube but some of the wrestling vids I watched there were from Hustle Wrestling(a Japanese wrestling brand). Man, they have crazy gimmicks there. One team there is dressed like a sentai group but they have real entertaining high risk moves. Also, I think Hustle is where Razor Ramon Hard Gay wrestles.

Well oddly enough, the Sci-Fi channel here in the states has picked up ECW. I believe it airs on tue nights. From what I hear though their premiere show was pretty weak. That could be why Cena was sent over there. If you can get the Sci-fi channel in Finlandia then you should still be able to catch plenty of F.U. action.

I've been a bit lazy with wrestling recently... I still didn't finish watching ECW One Night Stand :o

But what I did see was "Kurt Angle's new wrestling style"... Uh, to me it just looked like his point was to wear out the opponent by that locking style (rofl) and then making them tap out by using a painful lock... But you know... I find that fucking boring ROFL!!! I like action, guys flying all over the stage and such. Think Rey Mysterio or RVD. But the two "new Angle" matches I've seen were just about two sweaty guys hugging each other. BLEH!!!

So, I just needed to get that out :P

                 1. Mitsuo Momota vs. Haruka Eigen
2. Tamon Honda, Jun Izumida & Tsuyoshi Kikuchi vs. Masao Inoue, Kishin Kawabata & Masashi Aoyagi
3. Michael Modest & Donovan Morgan vs. Kotaro Suzuki & Ricky Marvin
4. Scorpio & Richard Slinger vs. Akitoshi Saito & Makoto Hashi
5. Akira Taue & Takuma Sano vs. Daisuke Ikeda & Mohammed Yone
6. GHC Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Title: Naomichi Marufuji & KENTA (c) vs. Takashi Sugiura & Kendo Kashin
7. GHC Jr. Heavyweight Title: Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs. Jushin Thunder Liger New Japan
8. IWGP Tag Team Title: Yoshihiro Takayama & Minoru Suzuki Pancrase (c) vs. Takeshi Morishima & Takeshi Rikio
9. GHC Tag Team Title: Mitsuharu Misawa & Yoshinari Ogawa (c) vs. Keiji Muto All Japan & Taiyo Kea All Japan

Well, I finally finished watching ECW One Night Stand... (Please remember I've only watched wrestling for a short time, so sorry if I sound incredibly ignorant)

Almost the whole first half of it was just crap to me, really. ROFL I was just happy to see Orton, because even if he's an annoying bastard I had MISSED him (he was off for a few months) :o Oh, and Super Crazy was enjoyable because he's an entertaining wrestler. Anyway, not that much interesting stuff.

The hardcore match with Edge, Foley & Lita was fun, though, probably because they won and not the ECW people :lol: A bit too much blood for me, but I already saw it in Edge VS. Foley, so I'll survive. I just wondered what the hell some 60-year-old granps (Terry Funk) is still doing wrestling. I mean cool, you've had a long career in wrestling, but as someone on IRC said, there just comes a time when it's time to stop. That was just very weird.

Hmmm what else was there... Oh right, Rey Mysterio VS Sabu. Pretty cool flying and moves, but the booing from the audience just made the watching experience not so enjoyable. Why can't they shut up for one minute to just enjoy the wrestling o_O It's like they just come to shout for their faves without actually caring what's going on in the ring. It's like "that guy did a really cool move, but he's from SmackDown so I'm gonna boo!!" B L E H. Also, as cool as some of Sabu's stuff can be, it's not really any more 'hardcore' than the stuff I've seen from RAW and Smackdown. So I don't think ECW's nearly as cool as it was advertised to be. I am teh disappointed.

Well, I skipped some parts of the match with RVD and John Cena because I knew Cena would lose and I didn't want to see him get his ass kicked. Actually, from what I could see, he didn't get his ass kicked until Edge showed up and messed up everything. I think it was a great match from Cena, and he showed he has balls to even walk straight into an audience full of people shouting "fuck you" to his face. I have nothing but respect for Cena :P (And he's hot. Dimply-dimples :heart: I'm shirenu so I'm allowed to be biased) Also, I still think RVD has cool wrestling moves, but he just picked a wrong guy to mess with if he wants to stay on my favourite list (but obviously why would he or anyone care what I think :P )

Anyway, there weren't really any interesting wrestlers in ECW that would make me want to watch it again. Who all switched over? Angle, Big Show and RVD? I'd miss RVD the most, but yeah. Not a big loss (um, no pun intended) to me.

Lol, did anyone else notice all the fuckin camera angle changes during the Pitbulls match vs Funaki and Scotty? I liked it, but it was a little TOO much, they changed it after every 3 seconds when they didn't need to.

I watched Smackdown last week. I haven't watched any wrestling in such a while, I just found recently that ECW is on regularly. It's weird to watch 'cause there're all these new people I don't know, and even some old people(Scotty 2 Hotty and Tatanka. wtf?) It's kinda cool to see DX again, but I think they're too old to be actin like that.The shit with the old Vince clip was funny as hell though. I haven't been able to see the ECW show yet, but is it like how it used to be, or is it just like a WWE show with ECW guys?

Don't know if people weren't interested or jsut didn't notice, but I can still upload the NOAH DVD I have. Can I put it up on the tracker,(it may kinda be out of place), the Asshole, or here?

Yep it's pretty much like WWE presents ECW.

Here's Lance Storm's comments on the new ECW.

Quote
"What can I say about ECW, other than I’m really glad I turned down the contract they offered me. I considered it very seriously when Dreamer contacted me early this year. I loved my old ECW days and working with Tommy and Paul again had a lot of appeal. In hindsight though this isn’t ECW one more time, it’s WWECW a completely new entity and more than anything else just a third WWE brand. This isn’t to say it will be a bad brand just not ECW like it once was. For those of you out there who like the new product I propose you start the chant We-C-Dub so as not to destroy the legacy of the original E-C-DUB, because this really has little to do with the Original product."

Tonights show is going to have Ric Flair Vs. The Big Show.

Much as I like JBL+MC (reminds me how long its been without a strong heel color commentator), I still liked Tazz+MC more.  Those guys were great together, and really gave big matches that big match feel.  Plus they could call technical matches very well.  I'll reserve judgement on JBL+MC until they call a couple big PPVs.

They do that to disguise sloppy spots.  When a move is done that doesn't really hit, they change angles quickly so the viewer doesn't notice.  It hightens the perception of impact.  This is one of the big differences between how modern WWE PPVs/TV shows are produced and how video production worked in old-school-WWF (where missed moves were shown straight on, looking very lame) and Japan (where the best wrestlers work stiff and really hit most of their moves).

Much as I like JBL+MC (reminds me how long its been without a strong heel color commentator), I still liked Tazz+MC more.  Those guys were great together, and really gave big matches that big match feel.  Plus they could call technical matches very well.  I'll reserve judgement on JBL+MC until they call a couple big PPVs.


Really? I can't remember the last time Cole or Tazz actually CALLED a match like JR does. I hate how Cole always looks on the brightside and sticks up for the lamest shit i.e Vito's current gimmick.

Oh I know that they do this to hide sloppy moves, but iono if you SAW the match, but it wasn't necessary at all and I'm not joking when it was literally changed every 3 seconds. I know they change the camera angles when a move looks sloppy, but like they would even do it during a pin or a sleeper hold. It was really wierd.

lol, i was watching TNA Impact on Saturday and it was funny when the James Gang (Billy Gunn, Road Dogg - Don't know their TNA names - I don't watch TNA often) came out and the crowd started chanting "DX REJECTS"

these goes back to creative though. there are times when coach does better than Joey Styles + JR and anyone else... styles and jr have been doing it for so long, you'd think they would be able to write/say some of their own stuff. But I guess they are scared that another "Miz" incident will happen. Which is why normally instead of saying SHUT UP JR. SHUT UP COLE!. I just tune in to jph!p radio. now. :D

Press Release Issued About WWE In Canada

Date Added: July 19, 2006
Story By: Feras Ballout
WWE(R)s Monday Night RAW(TM) comes to The Score in August 2006

The Score now proud home of WWE's flagship show and new WWE programming

TORONTO, July 19 /CNW/ - The Score Television Network (TSX:SCR) has solidified its reputation as "the home for the hardcore" now that it has added World Wrestling Entertainment's "Monday Night RAW" to its programming roster on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET starting August 7, 2006 (repeats at 12:30 a.m. ET - 9:30 p.m. PT).

The move of RAW to The Score Television Network is part of a multi-faceted agreement that also calls for The Score to introduce a new WWE program in Canada which will air prime-time Sundays evenings, and that moves WWE's popular SmackDown(R) program, currently the No. 1 program on The Score, from Thursdays to Friday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET (repeats at 12:00 a.m. ET - 9:00 p.m. PT), beginning August 11.

"The Score is truly the home for the hardcore now that we've united the RAW and SmackDown properties on the same channel, and introduced our new WWE program," said David Errington, Senior Vice President and General Manager, The Score Television Network. "The Score caters to sports fans with unique viewing demands. We're delighted to be providing our loyal viewers with content that they identify with. We are looking to duplicate the same success that the USA Network experienced last fall when they acquired Monday Night RAW, by moving the No. 1 rated program on specialty television in Canada, Monday Night Raw, from TSN to The Score."

"We believe that this move will be a great one for our fans," said WWE Canada President, Carl DeMarco. "RAW will be seen by our fans each and every Monday night and this was a significant factor for WWE in making the decision to place RAW on The Score," he concluded.

To further underscore the new partnership, The Score will also broadcast "The Sexiest Woman on TV," The WWE Diva Search Finals on Wednesday, August 16, at 9:00 p.m. ET. This is the finale of the 2006 "$250,000 Diva Search," which marks the first time that this competition has been open to Canadians, and 2 of the final 8 contestants are Canadian - Maryse Ouellet from New Brunswick and Milena Roucka from British Columbia.

WWE Canada will be responsible for the selling of the commercial inventory with all WWE TV properties. As well, WWE Canada offers advertisers and corporate partners the ability to secure sponsorships/advertising within Pay Per Views, WWE Live Events, Magazines, and Online.

Man, you panic way too easily.  You may want to re-read those articles. They only say that he's TEAMING with DX.  That means there will be a 6-man tag match. DX + Cena vs three members of The Spirit Squad. It does NOT say anywhere that Cena is going to JOIN/become a part of DX.

Watched a bit of Smackdown and Raw this week, Spirit Squad got the beat the hell up each week is great. HBK will be that Samoan easily :yawn: That leperchaun that Finley has is hilarious. Poor Regal :lmao:

Randy Orton is gonna get the beatdown of a lifetime. Legend Killer pssh.

Yeah he wrestles this coming tuesday (August 1st) on Sci-Fi Channel. He did 2 sixty minute draws with Samoa Joe in ROH, but I don't expect his debut match to be longer than 10 mins. The weekly ECW show is 65 mins with commercials so no one on there really has long matches. I wonder if they are going to start doing regular Pay Per Views for ECW?

I've forgotten to write my opinions about stuff!! :o (I'm still a n00b <- disclaimer)

The Great American Bash comments:
- London & Kendrick have become some of my favourite wrestlers to watch. I don't really like wrestling for the sake of wrestling, but L&K's wrestling is actually so entertaining I can't help but watch. They're so fast and have several cool moves, sometimes they're just flying all over the place. Not to mention they're both hot. :lol: It's also refreshing they're just there to wrestle instead of having to babble each time they appear.
- Even if I like Lashley, I was actually glad the match ended up being Finlay VS. Regal. It was a nice twist. I'm just so tired of seeing Finlay beat people by cheating, but cheating Regal didn't matter that much because they're both assholes. :lol: (I still secretly hoped Regal would kick his ass, though. Finlay is so goddamn annoying, and the lepricorn hasn't made me like him any more even if it's funny)
- The Punjabi Prison match was pretty cool, but I didn't like it that The Undertaker seemed most of the match to be worn out & losing (since starting to watch WWE, in the 3-4 recent matches I've seen with him he's always seemed to be like that... I usually disagree with everything JBL says, but when he said The Undertaker isn't the same anymore, I kinda agreed. He just seemed more powerful in the old matches I've seen). I'm glad he didn't wrestle The Great Khali because I guess it would've been ever worse. Also, I remember being all "OOOH YEAH BABY" when I saw the whips/weapons on the table inside the outer cage. But then those weren't used at all!!! What a waste... Because of that, I demand another punjabi prison match (with other wrestlers, though). I liked the prison. But what are the chances of there being another match like that? Only if The Great Khali gets mad at someone else? :rolleyes:
- Booker T has become so annoying to me I ignore him. I didn't really watch the match with him & Rey Mysterio at all...
- Oh right, there was Mr. Kennedy & Batista, right? I was just happy to see Batista wrestle for the first time, that's how new I am to wrestling. Kennedy was busted wide open (lol, been waiting to use that since starting to read Foley's "Have A Nice Day")... Hrmmm I can't remember much of the match, actually. I didn't know which one to support because I kinda like both, but I guess Batista's done something evil recently because some of the fans were booing at him :? Or maybe they were just Kennedy fans.

I think there was other stuff, but I don't remember what it was...

Last night I was able to catch Smackdown streamed o/ But I can't remember a lot about it (it was like 3am!) so I'll leave commenting until later...


Tonight wrestling is on Finnish TV again, we're supposed to get the episode where Batista returns to Smackdown. :D (Since we're 3-4 weeks late)

GAB favorites:

Favorite match: Mysterio vs. Booker.  Didn't like the swerve ending, but it was a really good match, with lots of cool moves and countermoves.  Happy to see Booker get another championship run.  Mysterio has had a great run, and I'm happy to see him drop the belt to Booker rather than some big fat fuckup wrestler.  Runner up was the opening tag championship match.

Above expectations: Batista vs. Mr. Kennedy.  They showed lots of fighting spirit, and that blade job was disgusting.  

Favorite quote: "You're a socialist!  I bet you read the New York Times"  - JBL to Cole during the Mysterio vs. Booker match.  I'm growing really fond of these two commentators.  The geek vs. arrogant rich-guy dynamic is a welcome change from the geek vs. tough-guy dynamic of Cole and Taz.  They really helped create a dramatic big match vibe for the PPV.

Below expectations: Finley vs. Williams.  Ugghh... These guys are great wrestlers; were these guys on dope?

Actually, the World Heavyweight Championship belt is former WCW Heavyweight Championship belt with "WCW" replaced by "WWE".  So technically, Booker can now say he's the six-time, six-time, six-time, six-time, six-time, six-time World Heavyweight Champion.  Not sure if the commentators will recognize it though.

Also, doesn't The Rock count as a black WWE Champion?  He's half-black half-Samoan.

To add to what chera has said, WCW was the original AWA/NWA promotion(i.e. not the one that you see these days on TNA-Impact). The belt now being called the "World Heavyweight Belt" goes back at least to the 1970's and 1980's when men like Ric Flair (back in his prime), Dusty Rhodes,  Harley Race and Ricky Steamboat were fighting over it. This belt was already well established during the time when McMahon had just began his buy-out of all of those regional promotions to make the WWE (then known as the WWF) what it is today.  The "World Heavyweight Belt" may not have as much glory as the "WWE Championship Belt", but it definitely has a longer and richer history.

Thoughts on ECW 1 August:

 - Kelly should be a porn star, not a valet
 - I thought they were trying to build up the Big Show as a monster giant heel.  So why is Heyman trying to "protect" him from Sabu?  The Sabu run-in was obvious.

CM Punk:
 - The tarantula-like move looked nice, but Justin ruined it by recovering immediately and slamming Punk from his subsequent springboard move.  Nothing buries a cool new move better than no-selling.
 - The so-called Muay Thai kicks were a joke.  He should have kicked the thighs, not the hips.
 - The uranage -> kimura combination was smooth and looked cool.  But if you notice the kimura, its clear that he's got his hands positioned all wrong.  That move might stretch the shoulder, but it could never hurt the elbow, like a good kimura should.
 - Most anticipated feud: Angle vs. Punk

 - What's the freaking deal with Angle?  A headbutt and a Angle-lock?  That's fewer moves than the a Hogan match!  Is he injured or something?
 - Show vs. Batista chant: YOU BOTH SUCK.  'nuff said.

The problem was that there wasn't a monolithic NWA promotion.  The NWA was an umbrella that any promotion could promote under, as long as he followed the NWA by-laws and stuff.  That's why you had the NWA in Japan, the NWA in Mexico, the NWA in every two-bit territory in the US, etc.  

Explaining the history of the NWA belt without breaking the illusion that the endings aren't for the most part pre-determined (and highly political) is a darn hard challenge.

I liked CM Punk's debut but I wish they would let him use more of his old moves. His wrestling style is different in ECW but I expected that. I highly doubt we will see the Pepsi Plunge (Pedigree from the top rope). He might get to do the "Welcome to Chicago, Motherf**ker" but they will have to change the name.

A headbutt and a Angle-lock is all you need to take out the Brooklyn Brawler. I would love to see Angle vs. Punk since they were the two things I most enjoyed about tonight's show.

Well, the Sandman only needed a cane shot and a White Russian Leg Sweep to take out the Zombie, the Priest, Macho Libre, and the Fat Male Stripper.  But that's because the Sandman can't wrestle anymore.

But this is Angle we're talking about, the Wrestling Machine, one of the best wrestlers in the world.  I was expecting much more out of him than just two moves, especially since he just came back from suspension.

I would recommend any of his Ring of Honor matches especially his 2005 ones.

The CM Punk/Somoa Joe Trilogy was great. They had matches at World Title Classic, Joe vs. Punk II, and All Star Extravaganza II.

If you use bittorrent you can register at this website http://xtremewrestlingtorrents.net/ and download alot of wrestling PPV's and Ring of Honor (My favorite promotion) DVD's. If you do a search for CM Punk they have several of his matches.

EDIT- Angle is awesome hes one of my favorite WWE wrestlers. I would like to see him use more moves and in longer matches.

Yeah Get anything that says Joe vs Punk. Wether you are A CM Punk Fan  want to know who the heck this guy is. Or Like TNA or Somoa Joa. don't forget you can get DVDS at http://WWW.ROHwrestling.com if you wanna get yourself a legit copy.
Those best of DVDS are good too. They usually include matches from Multiple companies. (ROH CZW, and JAPAN) and they aren't held back in either of the companies.

yeah you can't buy everything. It costs money to get stuff liscened buy all these companies and for a 10/20 dollar dvd  you'd end up loosing money. thats why you don't usually see to many dvds by companies in smaller venues. oh yeah.. I usually stay away from the 20 dollar ones. get 10 dollar ones occasionally i go for the 5 dollar ones. or buy best of dvds directly from wrestler websites or something its cheaper.

Thanks for the tips.  I've only seen three Samoa Joe fights so far: a mind-blowing 5-star Joe vs. Kobashi match, a hillarious quadruple threat comedy match, and a FMW-style light-tube deathmatch between Joe and some fat bearded guy with no talent.  Joe's skills are quite diverse!

I forgot the exact details so I looked it up on wikipedia:

"On the July 3, 2006 episode of RAW, Van Dam lost the WWE Championship to Edge in a triple threat match that also featured John Cena. The next night, on the July 4th episode of ECW on Sci Fi, he lost the ECW World Heavyweight Championship to Big Show after Heyman turned on him. Later on WWE.com, a story was written that Heyman had "suspended" Van Dam for 30 days without giving a reason. The same day, WWE.com announced that Van Dam had been legitimately suspended for 30 days as a result of his recent drug possession arrest"

Shirenu watched Summer Slam! Even if it was 6am when it ended here. Commentary on some of the  stuff...

Big Show VS Sabu
This match was so bad... I mean I wouldn't be surprised to hear Sabu was high as hell in this match. He made the weirdest mistakes, Big Show was slow and clumsy, and it was just... So bad. And this is supposed to be the hardcore ECW?? The audience had a reason to boo when they did.

Hogan VS Orton
Well I haven't seen many old wrestling videos, so I wasn't as eagerly supporting Hogan as everyone else probably was. Not that I have anything against him, and I wasn't surprised he won. ROFL! Anyway, Orton is always so hot when he's looking for a chance to do RKO. He looks like a panther or something. And I'm allowed to say such things as a girl.

Flair VS Foley
AAaaagghhh too much blood, too much blood -.-" Ehh I don't like Flair. I like Foley. Nuff said, I guess...

Batista VS Booker
I wish Batista had got the belt -_-

DX VS McMahons
This was surprisingly boring, probably because I don't find it entertaining when DX gets their ass kicked and as always, they spent quite some time into it. Well, DX still won, which is sexy. Hmm Kane beating up Umaga - I was wondering who the heck they were saving Umaga for, but I guess it's Kane, then. Well, I hope Kane kicks his ass.

Edge VS Cena
Well, I like Cena. Lol. I don't really dislike Edge, but I do find it so damn annoying he always cheats to beat Cena. I mean it'd be ok if he actually was good enough to beat him, but nah. Yeah yeah I know it's not really about which one is better, but it just bugs me, ok? And Cena was hot. Thanks.

That's really sad news but I heard that a lot of injuries have been bothering him and maybe it's good for him to take a break for a while. Kurt's one of the best athletes that ever joined WWE. I hated him when he was SD's GM but he is one of my faves once he steps into the ring. I hope he'd still get involved in WWE by being a commentator like JBL :)

Good luck to Kurt.

Angle talks about his release

“My body is so beat up and run down, I can’t even think straight,” Kurt Angle tells WWE.com in an exclusive interview Saturday concerning his early release from his contract with World Wrestling Entertainment. Angle and WWE officials mutually agreed to end Angle’s relationship with the company on Friday.

Angle says seven years of non-stop wrestling has taken a major toll on his body, his mind and his family. “I need my body to reheal and rehab, I have done this for too long without a break. I haven’t been able to really enjoy my life. I haven’t seen my family, I’ve had problems with medication - I’m just fried physically and mentally.”

Angle’s business manager David Hawk claims, “Kurt’s in a tremendous amount of pain, he’s used prescription medication to deal with it. Kurt has come to the conclusion that unless he can get in the ring without the use of pain medication then he doesn’t need to be in there. He realizes he was just endangering himself and his opponents.”

The last straw for Angle seems to have occurred on August 13th, 2006, at an ECW live event in White Plains, New York. Angle was wrestling Rob Van Dam in a match where both competitors were fueled by the passionate ECW fans. “The crowd was wild,” Angle says. “Early on in the match, I pulled my groin, but I kept going, feeding off the crowd. Then I pulled my abdominal muscle off the pelvic bone, but I kept going as the crowd grew more wild. Finally, I blew out my hamstring, but we finished the match. The crowd stood and applauded - a standing ovation and that meant so much to me.”

Ironically that would be Angle’s last match.

WWE.com asked Angle if he would ever return to competition in WWE. Angle says “I can’t tell you that right now, I need to heal up mentally and physically. Until then, I can’t even think about returning.”

But Angle says WWE Chairman Vince McMahon told him the door is always open. “Vince says when I’m ready, if I’m ever ready, to come back just sign on the dotted line. I’ll tell you if I do return I’m going back to my roots, training on the mat like my amateur days. Longevity is the key.”

Hawk seems confident Angle will be in the ring again someday.

Angle has a final message to his legion of WWE and ECW fans. “Don’t be concerned, this move was for the best. It was a privilege to be able to compete for all of you. I’d like to say thank you.”

WWE.com will continue to follow up on Kurt Angle over the next several months.

Angle :bow:

Can't really say that I'm surprised. Dude has gone through so many serious injuries recently that I was expecting him to either retire or take a break. It's a funny coincidence that I actually wore my Kurt Angle t-shirt for the first in ages yesterday. I shall not wear my shirt again before he comes back! :P

That was actually the first TNA match I've ever seen on live TV.  I saw the promo, and said to myself "a Manking-clone in a thumbtacks match - that sounds fun!  I wonder how far he'll push himself?"  

Anyway, the match was one of the dumbest things I've seen in a long time.  Li'l Spike Dudley just lies on the ground whimpering for more than half the match waiting for Mankind-clone to set up the double thumbtack tables spot.  The ending, with Mankind-clone falling through the tables wasn't even sold by the announcers.  This match had everything that I hate about garbage matches (dumb transitions, wrestlers lying around doing nothing for minutes at a time) and none of what I love about them (I wasn't cringing or feeling surpsised at all).

Anyway, the match was one of the dumbest things I've seen in a long time.  Li'l Spike Dudley just lies on the ground whimpering for more than half the match waiting for Mankind-clone to set up the double thumbtack tables spot.  The ending, with Mankind-clone falling through the tables wasn't even sold by the announcers.  This match had everything that I hate about garbage matches (dumb transitions, wrestlers lying around doing nothing for minutes at a time) and none of what I love about them (I wasn't cringing or feeling surpsised at all).


I agree the match was just an excuse to set up two tables with tacks on them so Abyss could take the fall (and he didn't even land in the middle). I wish they would have done a better job on that match or waited until a PPV when they could really put some time into it.

On the plus side AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels VS LAX in Tag Team Ultimate X!!! I don't really care about Hernandez but Styles + Daniels + Homicide = :baa60776:

Last week's Smackdown was really fun:

 - The Vito vs. Regal match was the only match I've ever seen with a COR ending that I liked.  Vito is a mediocre wrestler, but with Cole and JBL as announcers, he's gold.  Put Regal into the mix, and you've got pure fun.
 - JBL is taking WWF announcing to a whole new level.  Who the hell are Shawn and Steve Simpson?
 - Noble hasn't been this good since he was trailer-park trash

 - Favorite quote: Michael Hayes worked a lot in Japan, [Jimmy Wang Yang] could be his son.  -- JBL
 - 2nd favorite quote: "Al Gore needs to get off the global warming and get on Vito.  Not get on Vito, but you know what I mean."  -- JBL

WTF!?  JBL mentioned Kendrick being Zero-1 Champion?!?

I hope RAW gets a new GM asap. Vince and Shane's power tripping is getting pointless and boring.

I finally got to see Smackdown yesterday (it's shown on Sunday here and Raw is aired on Saturdays).

Props for JBL for referring to HBK's "lost my smile" during Rey's match with Finlay.I was reading the MSG incident and a couple of other WWE articles in Wiki yesterday.

I really don't like Rey's feud with the Gurerros. It kinda stains Eddie's name. They should just move on.

Batista got bloodied by Finlay. But he will get revenge.:twisted:

My favorite part? The same as Michael Cole's:
"Mr!!!!~ Kennedy!!!! (after one 1 or 2 minutes) Kennedy! :lol:
"Don't you love it when he does that?" - JBL

He's going to face Taker next.

Tonight's 9/11 Raw was one of the best I've seen in some time.  Best match was definately the Carlito & Jeff Jardy & Cena vs. Nitro & Edge & Orton.  Sloppy as heck, like when Jeff Hardy jumped off Carlito's back and hit the ropes.  But the crowds was super hot, and the Lets Go Cena / Cena Sucks chants were hillarious!

And it was great seeing Roddy Piper again too.  He made the Highlanders vs. Spirit Squad watchable.

Its sad to see Trish retiring, and even sadder to imagine her last match against... Lita.  Lita's had some wonderful matches in her career (TLC, for instance), but her neck is frickin' broken.  Trish should be passing the torch to somebody who can carry the Divas/womens division, not somebody who's already retired.

I'm so bored of DX.  It was fun for the first few weeks, when they were still doing skits, like the Shaneomac on dope skit.  But now it's just another feud.  Nothing has matched the classic 90's DX skits like "You smell what the Crock is cookin'".

The Unforgiven PPV wasn't that bad.  Nitro vs. Hardy was very very good.  Hardy sold the leg like a man.  For his first PPV since returning to the WWE, it was a very good showing.  Too bad the WWE screwed it up on Monday with that horrible 6-way dance match.  They should have used it to try to aknowledge Jeff is truly back and a force to be reckoned with, but it just turned out to be a cluster fuck.

The Hell in a Cell match was good.  Shane sold the Pillmanization of his neck like a genius.  With that look in his eye and the blood coming out of his mouth, I thought for a while that his neck was frickin' broken.  The Big Show assface was funny, it it seemed weird coming right after the Shane O Mac was supposed to have broken his neck.  I was thinking that the DX feud would have been over, but then on Monday they have DX vs ...... Murdoch and the Redneck?  WTF!  DX is reduced to feuding with a fat Texan and a hick Southerner?  WWE has made a ton of money on the endless stream of Vince vs. Shawn, Vince vs. HHH, Vince and Shane vs. DX, Spirit Squad vs. DX, and Big Show vs. DX series.  They should just let this thing die.

Trish vs. Lita wasn't bad.  When they took the dive from the top rope to the floor and Trish tried to land on her outstretched arm, I had a flashback to the Wrestlemania match where the same thing happened and Trish broke it.  That would've been a horrible way for this match to end.  I loved the crowd reaction to the sharpshooter.  It came as a surprise, and should seal this match in the historybooks.

Edge vs. Cena was better than expected.  The FU on double-tables ending was predictable though.  The STF sandwitched between the ladder looked awesome.  And Edge's spill from the 16-footer onto two tables outside the ring looked sick - his upper back and neck seemed to miss the tables and hit the floor.  And damn it, I wish the fan that caught Cena's shirt just threw it right back at him, like at the ECW debut show.

Thats a damn shame.  That team was so 80's, and have been damn influential on tag psychology.  It was hard for me to imagine what a good match could be like that wasn't centered on one of the faces near death, to be rescued at the last minute (see some AJPW matches from the 90's for some counter examples).

I'm new to the boards here and I can't tell you how happy I am to find out I'm not alone in my dual, seemingly diametrically opposed obsessions! My friends are all wrestling fans and several of them are wrestlers here in the Pacific Northwest. I work shows in town as a referee & manager and I've recently been organizing shows using Sandy Barr's (father of the late, great Art Barr) stable of grapplers.

My friends are very patient with me when I force them to watch Hello! Morning segments, etc. One of them, who wrestles under the name Lance Profile, has a bit of a crush on Yossi and thinks the PV for The Manpower is one of the hottest things he's ever seen. I'LL CONVERT THEM ALL YET, BROTHER!!

WWE apologizes
Oct. 9, 2006

World Wrestling Entertainment would like to apologize to anyone who watched WWE No Mercy and was offended by the William Regal locker room incident. Conduct of this kind is unacceptable in a family-friendly environment, and WWE accepts full responsibility. Nudity of any kind, even in a live television environment, is offensive to our audience and to the reputation of our company.

Anyone saw what exactly happened? But some of the words (locker room, William Regal?, nudity?) makes me think that I don't want to see it XD

Well, the ECW strip poker game did have both topless and bottomless nudity in it (censored of course).  Then again, it was hot nude girls, rather than a middle-aged englishman....

About theme songs, wasn't there a masked tag team in All Japan a few years ago that used a remix for Love Machine as their entrance.  I remember one of the members of the team was Chibi Love Machine and another was Love Machine.  A continuation of the Super Strong Machine, Giant Machine, etc. gimmick of the 1980's.

The No Mercy nudity thing was (of course) no big deal. I'm sure the public apology was mostly to get people to buy the replays of the PPV.

Basically, regal was getting out of the shower, barely covering himself with a towel when Vito showed up and did/said something that got Regal into a homophobic tizzy, causing him to leave the locker room and run down the hallway, dropping his towel in the process. The nudity referenced in the apology was Regal's bare ass.

I thought that Benoit vs. Regal on No Mercy was awesome, but Benoit vs. Kennedy from Smackdown was fan-f'n-tastic!  

While the Regal match had great back and forth action, some incredible holds and counter-holds, incredible stiffness, and a very NWA/All-Japan 1980's feel to it, the Kennedy match was all about domination.  Benoit really got himself over, and had plenty of time to show Smackdown fans what they've been missing these past 5 months.  God, I love Benoit.

RAW tonight was great!  The 4-way IC match was super cool, Cryme Tyme had cool moves and was funny as heck, and I loved the reaction Britney's hubby got.  The guy is a natural heel.  That rap-off was great!  Cena has always fucked as a wrestler, but Cena as a fake rapper was much more entertaining than Cena as a fake marine.

I don't think that RAW or Smackdown have had rosters this strong in years.  RAW has Jeff Hardy, Benjamin, Super Crazy, Nitro, Carlito as strong contenders for the IC belt.  Did you see the 4-way IC match tonight?  That was great.  And much as I hate Cena, having RKO, Edge, and DX competing WWE title will make for some pretty good matches.

Smackdown has Finlay, Kennedy, Lashley, Matt Hardy, and a healthy Benoit as contenders for the US belt.  And Chavo, Noble, Jimmy Yang, Vito, Regal, and Terkay ready to step up to it.  The Smackdown tag-division hasn't been this red hot since 2003.  The weakest belt is actually the World belt: Booker continues to produce good matches and be very entertaining, but his competition is a bit limited to Batistia, Mysterio, and UT.  Even then, there's some great matches left in that mix.

The four way was of course my highlight of the night(because of Jeff Hardy of course). Didn't get to see Cryme Tyme in action, but caught them going to see Coach.LOL@ King Booker's wallet getting jacked. Actually I was shocked to see K-FED come out to the ring, but I was praying that he got the Samoan Spike. The F-U have to do. What got me was that Steve-O was laughing after Umaga beat his ass.

The part that had me worried about Cryme Tyme is if they could actually wrestle, and they can. they'll prob get better too. but the booker T thing was freaking Funny.
and the no mercy thing... i saw it. >_> but um i didn't like pause it or anything. and it was kind of funny. you don't see that type of humor too often. although it does get old and sickening (Jackass #2)

Cryme Tyme really has a future, doesn't it?  They could go in any direction: continue being a comic face hood tag-team, go heal ala the Gangstas/Harlem Heat/LAX, go rapper face ala early Cena, go rapper heal, etc.  There's literally dozens of stereotypes the WWE could exploit.  And I wont complain one bit, because their wrestling ability seems solid.

I've got a friend that knows Paul London personally.  He's a HUGE wrestling fan and met London a few years back after a house show in Wpg before London really made it big.  They traded emails and have been good buddies ever since.  So much so that when my buddy went to see Wrestlemania in 2005 (for the 3rd year in a row) London split a hotel room with him, and he got to hang and take pics with all the other wrestlers and shit.

And I thought I was the man cuz I got to interview John Cena and Torrie Wilson for like, 10 mins.  I STILL gotta find that footage.

This Raw sucked.  Cryme Tyme should have been given some more time.  There should have been a substantial RKO-Edge promo/skit.  Those two are the best competition DX has ever had, but the crowds will only cheer it if the feud has some entertainment value.

Surprisingly, the most entertaining angle on Raw right now involves sarcastic Cena, K-Fed, and Booker.  Too bad they're burying Nitro.  They should find some legit rapper to be Cena's sidekick, like Cindy Lauper/Lou Albino back in the 1980's.

You know what, I think so too!!! But just to make sure, you should all line up to hug me and stuff. (Which Chris, though??)

LOL, yesterday I realized there are tons of WWE communities on LiveJournal. :lol: I joined 3: one for John Cena, one for HBK (that community is actually active!!) and one for Paul London (even if that place is dead as heck). I wanted to join one general WWE one, but I have no idea which one of them is active and I'm too lazy to check them all :lol:

I also needed to whine that the Raw and Smackdown they show on TV here are now even more censored than before. Every time there's a replay and a hit, the pic freezes so that the actual contact between the wrestlers isn't shown. Also, when Kane attacked that samoan guy's manager backstage, it was just a blurry pictureslide show. You couldn't see anything about what was going on. -_- That's so damn annoying because Finland definitely isn't a country that would censor stuff like that on TV, especially after midnight (which is when both Raw & Smackdown are aired). I'm so bummed - do I really have to start downloading these shows to see them uncensored :/ I could somehow live with only being able to see half of the content, but the censorship is really eatin this girl!!

So Boogey Man's latest nemesis is the Miz, who everbody hates.  I presume Boogey Man is a face again?  Does anybody f'n care?  The guy can't wrestle, and his gimmick gets boring after about 1 week.  

Speaking of which, does anybody give a damn about Cena, Big Show, and King Booker?  They're just redoing a variation of the undisputed championship that they did back a few years ago (the one that Chris Jericho won).  Cena can't wrestle, Big Show never could rise above mediocrity, and Booker hasn't wrestled a good match in years.  

The matches for Cyber Sunday are by no means dream matches.  Who the heck gives a damn about the Spirit Squad vs. the 80's stars.  Nobody cares about Umaga.  I doubt even Benoit can pull a good match out of him.  And we've seen variations of Hardy vs. Benjamin/Carlito/Nitro for weeks now, although even a jaded fan like me is interested at the prospect of them fighting for >20 minutes.  DX vs. RKO & Edge should pull of a good match, but the joy of watching these guys is in the skits, not the wrestling.

At the point, the only thing making me interested in wrestling is the prospect of Angle vs Samoa on TNA.  Lets see whether Angle has any more good matches left in him.  And see if Samoa can equal his match with Kobashi.

Similar situation with Joe vs. Kobashi - the crowd idolized them both.

When Joe fought Kenta Kobashi, Kobashi had just recovered from some very nasty injuries.  Yet they still fought the best match North America has seen in a decade.  Of course Kobashi is one of the best wrestlers in the world.  Angle, too, has seen his fair share of injuries, but he's had a lot of time to rest up.  Frankly, I think Angle is an excellent wrestler but not as good as Kobashi.  Angle fought some great matches, but his history-making matches were with just Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit.  Kobashi fought 5-star matches with a much more diverse group of people, like Tsuruta, Kawada, Misawa, Williams, Hansen, Akiyama, and Sasaki.  

Kobashi vs. Joe was fought in the ROH's NYC bingo hall - the best crowd you could ever hope for.  I can't expect the Universal Studios crowd to be half as hot as the NYC crowd, but who knows, maybe, just maybe, Joe can wrestle two Match-Of-The-Years in a row.

BTW, Cryme Tyme was a riot tonight.  They stole the frickin' plasma TV! :ROTFLMAO:

Yeah Ring of Honor crowds are the best. Where else are you going to see TP thrown at the ring and chants like "Your gonna get your ****** head kicked in".

When TNA is putting on a really great PPV match the crowd can really get into the show which I hope is case in the Joe vs Angle match.

They throw TP everytime Jimmy Rave steps in the ring(yes everytime) and they have to clean the ring before the match could start. One time someone threw TP at Joe and the crowd went "Oohhh! You're dead" I also saw a clip before where they were throwing streamers and banners to the face wrestlers and one time steel chairs were being thrown inside. :lol:

I saw this show where Prince Nana was doing a promo for Jimmy Rave and the crowd was chanting "Shut the F*ck up!" Man RoH crowds are awesome. :lol:

Joe vs. Kurt would be awesome but isn't Kurt nursing a lot of injuries? I mean there would be a chance that these injuries get worse when he's facing Joe's "strong" style of wrestling. But knowing Kurt,he'd rather go out fighting than go out making excuses. Looking foward for their match. :D

Streamers were common in Japan, especially before the mid 1990s.  And I once remembered someone throwing TP at Dynamite Kid, back when he was a mega-heel skinhead (who even attacked Tiger Mask with a broken bottle once).  After he got hit with the TP, he turned around, looked straight into the eyes of the fool who threw the TP, and I swear, the entire ringside crowd went quiet and shuffled back about 3 feet.  Dynamite Kid in Japan was one of the best heels ever.

Joe vs. Kobashi was the very first ROH match I ever saw, and it was quite shocking to see the fans throw in streamers.  It gave the match a very old-school feeling.  If they sang the nation anthems, introduced the referee, and had ladies handing out bouquets of flowers it would have been perfect.

Angle has had months to nurse up his injuries.  His last few WWE matches (in ECW) averaged about 1 minute each.  I feel sad that he never had a chance to fight CM Punk.  Punk vs. Angle would have been awesome.  The clash of styles alone would have very interesting: lucha-libre/muay-thai/bjj vs. catch-wrestling.

Raw has been disappointing these past few weeks.  Surprisingly, I'm starting to like Cena more since he's started trash mouthing everyone else.  Too bad he still can't wrestle.  WWE's experiment in SMS voting seemed to be a great success.  >750k votes?!?  Think of the money they'll make out of that if they do it every week.

ECW was disappointing again this week... Its sad to see CM Punk being wasted on Mike Knox.

The best thing on WWE TV this week was, as usual, London and Kendrick.  Damnit they're good.  Please please don't let them have to go up against those no-talent goons the Undertaker and Kane.

TNA was strange.  The very first match, AJ Styles vs. Sabin, was super good, if too short.  Most of the middle matches sucked, except for Ron Killings.  He's got the look and the style of Booker T in his prime, but wrestlers twice better.  Ron Rules!  The very last segment of the hour was clips of Joe and Angle training for their upcoming match, which was awesome.  Joe doing his Judo and Muay Thai, and Angle doing his traditional catch wrestling.  I haven't seen a training video this well done since Rock vs. Brock.  And that one showed that farm boy Brock carrying a frickin' tree over his shoulder...

I like K-Fed, if only for the fact that he's a great natural heel, the type of guy that gets boos for just his look.  I hope they put him with Nitro more and help elevate Nitro into a more serious and entertaining character.  Frankly, it's a marriage of convenience: WWE gets great "heel heat" and K-Fed gets exposure and money.  He'll need it now that Birtney just divorced him.

I don't think Ron Simmons will get an angle of his own.  More like they'll just try to exploit his newfound catchphrase now and then.

Raw last night was a snoozefest.  Literally.  I fell asleep about 10 minutes before the ending and missed seeing the male stripper.  I haven't been this happy in a long time!

So apparently the daughter of Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart is possibly going to sign a developmental deal with WWE. That family really DOES eat, sleep, and drink the business.

Also, by my clock/calendar today is still November 13, 2006. That means it has been exactly one year since we lost Eddie....

It was a decent show.  It had the look and feel of a WWE show.  Dumb behind-the-scenes soap opera skits.  Girls.  Some boring matches.  And some moments of stunning great wrestling.  Highlights:

 - The Six Sides of Steel match between Rhino and Christian was awesome.  I was half expecting Christian to puke blood when his belly fell onto the edge of that chair.  And the gore through the side of the cage was a great way to end the match.
 - Angle was underwhelming in the main event.  He wasn't doing anything he hadn't done in Raw and Smackdown.  The MMA gimmick he was developing in his first weeks at ECW seems to have gone nowhere.
 - That being said, the post-match Joe-Angle brawl was awesome.  Angle was DEAD.
 - Joe vs. that black guy was a very nice match, but too short.
 - The 3-way for the X-Division match was a bit below expectations.  2 belt changes in 3 weeks sucks.
 - The New Age Outlaws doing that promo against WWE was very lame.  It felt so 1990's, as if I was watching a particularly embarrasing episode of Nitro.

Daniels vs. Sabin vs. AJ.  So-so match, except for a neat spot at the end.  One guy is setting up a superplex on the top rope.  The third guy, forgot who, belly-to-back-suplexes the bottom guy, sending all three guys crashing into the ring.

The black guy is Jay Lethal. He was Joe's protege in ROH and ROH Pure Champion. I hope he gets a bigger push in TNA than hes been getting. He is a really good wrestler.

The "VKM" thing was lame, but I enjoyed the rest of the show for the most part.

I just finished leaching the TNA PPV it and watched the main events on the 2nd CD.  It was way below expectations.  

The tag match was a mess, Sting vs. Abyss was cool only for the garbage spots, and Joe vs. Angle was just so-so.  

Angle has done much better with any of his Benoit matches and his two Michaels matches, and Joe did much much much better with Kobashi.  The match just didn't click.  I have no issues with the last 2-3 minutes - the false finishes that we've come to expect for main event matches - but the build-up was poor.  There was no weakening of the ankle, no internal storyline to the match (other than the cut, which the announcers failed to explain before the match began).  The first two minutes were horrible.  Check out Hogan vs. Andre or Hogan vs. Rock - that's how you start a "special" match, an icon vs. icon match.  And the total match was only 15 minutes long.  And the commentators were idiots, calling the guillotine choke a front face lock (even though it was obviously a submission/chocke).

The ending and post-match sorta made sense.  They'll keep on building this feud up for a few more months at least.  But unless they improve the quality of the matches, it's going to be hard to keep me interested.

I wish the Joe Angle match was longer. The beginning wasn't impressive but it started to get better at the end. My favorite part was when Joe had Angle in the Coquina Clutch and Angle reversed it into the Ankle Lock.

I didn't know the TNA belt could change hands on a DQ. I always hated it when the Champion in a WWE PPV match would get Disqualified and retain the title and you had to wait until the next month when the challenger would get another shot with some stipulation that would prevent the Champion from winning with a DQ again.

I'm looking forward to the DX/Team Xtreme/CM Punk vs Edge/RKO/Nitro/Helms/Knox.  I'm privately hoping that Knox and DX get eliminated first, and the remaining guys tear the house down.

I rarely get to watch ROH, AJPW, NOAH, and NJPW, but greatly enjoy those promotions.  Ring of Honor is probably my favorite promotion these days: excellent main event matches, comedy matches done right, great mid-card, and a fun crowd.  They're like old school ECW, without all the trash.

Batista beat Booker and got the title back.
Cena's Team won.
Team DX won.
Mr. Kennedy beat the Undertaker.
Mickie James beat Lita.
Ric Flairs team won.
Benoit beat Chavo.

Tonight on RAW, the Hardy's get a shot at Edge and Orton's tag titles.

I've been a WWE/WWF fan since.. God, 1983. Followed NWA and AWA through the pages of PWI mostly, with other mags thrown in.. Followed ECW as much as I could on TV.. I've kinda lost touch over the past year or so. I catch the occasional show, but not nearly as religiously as I used to.. Maybe this thread will help me get back into at least Raw/Smackdown/ECW/TNA..

I do have a question for the group though. For anyone who follows any of the Japanese promotions. I'd love to start following one. I'm sure there's at least one weekly TV show, right? But, here's my thing. While I love a good match, I also enjoy the storylines. Are there good sites out there that:

1. Offer a consistent weekly download where I could watch a puroresu show weekly.

2. Offer some sort of storyline translation/fansub, to the point where I could start learning the history along with enjoying some matches.

Are others interested in this as well, or is it just me? ^_^

WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Also known as Hodgkin’s disease, Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a form of cancer found in the body’s lymphatic tissue. The lymphatic system helps filter out bacteria and is important in fighting diseases.

Piper was sent home early from WWE’s early-November tour of the United Kingdom and hospitalized for surgery, where doctors removed a mass at the spinal cord with an enlarged lymph node. The mass was completely removed, but the lymph node was positive for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Radiation therapy is used to treat Hodgkin’s lymphoma; it is an extremely successful procedure, so the prognosis is very good for Piper. (http://www.wwe.com/inside/news/pipercancer)

Survivor Series was a bit of a let-down for me.  

I had very high hopes for the DX/Team X-treme/CM Punk vs. Rated RKO/Nitro/Helmes/Knox match, but that was a glorified squash.  I jumped out of my chair when Knox was eliminated in 5 seconds, but the match was way too one-sided.

On Raw, Team X-Treme vs. Rated RKO was very very nice.  I love how they hyped up the early history of the Hardies throughout the show, especially those videos of them as kids.  And I loved how Edge was putting down Matt in front of Jeff.  Lots of that tension is legit.

Regarding Puroresu, PWTorrents.net has most big events, but doesn't always contain every week's worth of TV.  For example, they had NOAH's Autumn Navigation, Shining Navigation, Winter Navitagation, and Northern Navigation, but only recently was Noah's weekly SEM show upped.  NJPW's english-langage Eurosport show is upped fairly rarely.  That being said, a lot of the great matches of puroresu history have been upped.

you're going to have to check it out. um.. hardyboys match was pretty good, vs mnm. everything else sucked seriously it was total crap except for those on or two spots where c m punk was *in my opinion* "killing" rvd.. I actually sat through the whole show.. expecting something good to happen i thought maybe it was going to be like the New Years Revolution where all the matches sucked, and the elemination chamber was going to be a nice 1 1/2 hour show. but nope.. Paul heyman did a long boring promo basically saying he created ECW.. then all 5 wrestlers spent like atotal  of 35 minutes on entrances combined. and the thing ended at 9:15 CST like 45 mins way too early but i guess they were doing us a favor buy ending it early. for those who actually payed good money to watch it.
and if you payed like 40 bucks and ordered this i' know you're pissed HAHAHA.

Edit
in response to daigong's message. WWE's ECW isn't as bad as their RAW or smackdown. that was crap to the extreme! can't believe i thought that was going to be half as good as one night stand.. boy was i wrong o_O

I read throughout the net about ecw ppv and pretty much receive negative reviews,at least the hardyz vs mnm & extreme elimination chamber was over 20 minutes,other than that the show end early.

edit:
Read the result reviews and man,sounds like the worst ppv this year,after that paul heyman quit.
CM punk was rub by triple h last week,and Punk was over with fans in Philly than triple h yet his the first one been eliminated by RVD.

Good news is SEM(Noah offshoot) will end this year with a bang with 3 great single match.
Go Shiozaki vs Noamichi Marufuji - hopefully Shiozaki can hang in there for over 15 minutes.
KENTA vs Morishima - expect stiff exchange between these two! i wish they could build a feud between these two.
Bonus match GHC Jr title:Takashi Suguira(C) vs Tatsuhito Takaiwa - a rematch from January 2005 when Takaiwa fail to capture the title,can he do it this time.

So I guess you all know by now heyman's fired (released), and big shows retired from WWE. or maybe not since noody watching ECW. So, i'm waiting on his upcoming shoot interview, to see what he has to say since he's officially is not a part of the company and doesn't have to sugar coat his words too much. strange though, he's never been fired before. well isnt fun checking out stuff from one company.

oh yeah and if i posted this before then repost: http://www.robvandam.com one of my fav wrestlers wrote something pretty funny check out the last liine.

And i didn't really notice much going on in TNA really, but there is this huge main event with all the top stars with no rules etc. but you can watch that on tv..  for something more interesting.-->Message to John Cena (http://www.tnawrestling.com/news/fullnews2.php?all=1043) edit: not really @ john cena, but you'll see what i mean ;)

The MNM vs. Hardyz match saved the ECW PPV, although it went downhill from there.  The sad thing is that neither MNM or the Hardyz have any affiliation to ECW whatsoever.

The new ECW has been a near total waste, IMO.  CM Punk was brought in, got super over with the fans, but hasn't feuded with anybody other than that spazz Mike Knoxx.  WTF?!?  The goth/vampire guy shows some potential, but he hasn't been built up enough.  Other than that, ECW has "built" rejects like Test and that tall Indian guy, who aren't even OVW caliber.

The ECW I remembered from the 90's 3 things that made it special:

1) It was a showcase for solid wrestling matches, the likes of which we weren't seeing in WCW and WWF, and we wouldn't see in WWE until the early 2000's.  Since Angle left, who the heck watches ECW for quality matches any more?  

2) It invested in building solid new talent, like Benoit, Eddy, Rey, etc.  Those guys weren't rejects from some other fed - they were solid talent that needed a push to make it to the top.  Who has the new ECW built?  Test?!?  Knoxx?!?  VampBoy?!?  

3) It had shocking garbage wrestling.  Super Crazy moonsaulting off the bleachers.  RVD jumping into the crowd.  Barbed wire and Mass Transit.  This aspect has now been fully merged into WWE mainstream, and the only garbage remnants that we see in the new ECW are sad things like Sandman busting his own head open week after week.

Let's face it: ECW is dead.  What we see today is just sad.  If you want 1) and 2), watch ROH and maybe TNA.  If you want 3) watch mainstream WWE.

BTW, have you noticed that suddenly Raw is interesting again?  They're building up Kenny, pushing Nitro like mad, making Cena funny again, and have reformed the World's Greatest Tag Team!!!!  

Frankly, I think that Benajamin stands alone strongly as a singles wrestler, and this tag team is only there to give a push to Hass, who has been struggling in his angle with Viscera (as anybody would).  Hass can also be a main eventer if he's pushed right.  But he needs good competition and serious exposure.  The WGTT is a good way to do that.  If only they reused the old Angle "You Suck!" music....

Also, did anybody notice the impending breakup of the London/Kendrick tag-team.  That's a damn shame.  I had hoped they would last another year together.  But both of them are so over now that they just might warrant a run as singles wrestlers.

^ Testify, brother!

Well put, Chera. We were all so excited when they brought back ECW with Heyman ostensibly in charge. Unfortunately, it became clear very quickly that the "new ECW" was an embarassing insult to the memory of a once-great company.

With Heyman a free agent again, maybe he'll have gotten enough of a taste of what could be that he'll get involved with another promotion...but would TNA be a good fit? I'm not sure.

Glad to hear Raw's getting interesting again. I have to admit I've been largely ignoring WWE programming lately except for PPVs (and even those haven't been rocking my socks off). I've been waiting for SOMETHING to inspire me to start watching again.

Haven't been ignoring wrestling, though -- just WWE. Finally saw my first Shimmer DVD last week. Good stuff. Closest I've ever seen an American promotion get to the great women's wrestling that comes out of Japan.

What style are they - 80's AJW, 90's AJW, LLPW, GAEA, ...?  

Although I appreciate the great atheleticism of female wrestlers, I cringe whenever I see the more violents 90's AJW fights.  Those girls took way too much punishment!  I get thrilled when to seeing guys elbowed in the jaw, kicked in the head, or suplexed onto their skulls, but when I see the same thing happening to women, I feel like a misogynist, guilty.  Maybe I'm just a chauvinist....

Tonight's Smackdown was one of the most boring ones in recent history.  The only highlight was Jimmy Wang Yang & Kendrick & London vs. Helmes & Regal & Taylor.  

Too bad WWE's hinting at breaking up Kendrick and London.  Gotta appreciate them while they're still together.  

Taylor and Regal are awesomely oldschool (as in Lou Thesz 1950's oldschool, not WWF 1980's oldschool).  Taylor's butterfly underhook suplex finisher is so damn sweet.  Regal's knees make CM Punk's knees look wimpy.  A team of Finlay & Taylor & Regal would be the ultimate "F*** sports entertainment, we're wrestlers!" team.  They could call themselves the UK Wrecking Crew or something like that...

Now I'll really have to start leeching all the eps.

Oh yeah, I watched the latest WWE PPV... What was it called again... Survivor Series?? It actually entertained me a lot, just 2 or so boring matches (lol). The highlight: Shawn Michaels sliding out of the ring next to Melina, acting all cool, then both realizing who they're standing next to and acting shocked :lol: That was SO FRICKING FUNNY, I couldn't stop laughing.

OMG, the Armageddon tag title fight was awe-inspiring, and was totally unexpected.  Hardyz vs. London & Kendrick vs. MNM vs. Taylor & Regal.  Where do I begin in explaining how awesome this was?

 - Mercury's injury was sick, just totally sick.  That's gotta go onto the list as one of the most cringe-inducing gruesome accidents in wrestling history.  There was a solid river of blood following his path as he left the ring, and there was a large pool of blood on the mats where he lay waiting for help.  I'm at a loss for words.

(http://www.wwe.com/content/media/images/309846/1692656/3749300/joey.jpg)

 - I loved Regal's reaction when Teddy Long announced that it would become a ladder match.  That really added to the realism of the match.  It therefore made sense that they were trying to push out the ladders during the beginning of the match.  And when when Regal or Taylor got "afraid of heights" that also made a lot of sense.  The experience of those guys is really strong - they turned what might be a weakness (their inexperience with ladder matches) into a strength.  JBL and Cole's commentary also helped save the day here.

 - Regal's half-nelson suplex onto the ladder was incredible.  Frankly, Regal's suplexes are better than Angle's suplexes and nearly as good as Taz's ECW-era suplexes.

 - London completely screwed up his Sliced Bread off the ladder onto Regal, and it still looked cool.  Regal sold it like he had broken his neck - just perfect.  Just look at the expression on his face, eyes open, head hanging of the ring edge, body totally limp.  I was really afraid for London, given the way he landed, but he looked OK afterwards.

 - The finish was a bit off - after all that punishment, mere punches ended it?  But I let out a sigh of relief that the match was over.  It was hard to really get into after Mercury's injury.

This match made all of those guys legit A-class superstars overnight.  The Hardyz show that they still have what it takes to rock a ladder match.  London & Kendrick show that they are possibly the new kings of the ladder match.  This potentially sets up a London & Kendrick vs. Hardyz feud (please, pretty please!).  Nitro solidifies his newly found main-eventer show-stealer status, and Mercury (after he heals from massive reconstructive surgery) deserves a standing ovation and a post-injury HHH/Hardcore Holly-like push.  London & Taylor prove that they can do any type of match and make it look legit and credible.

Edit: I just had to watch that match again.  More highlites:
 - Matt lies on the ladder, which London bridges the ladder on the second rope.  Kendrick then jumps off the top rope and double stomps Matt in the belly!  Holy f'n $hit!
 - Jeff on the ladder outside the ring, ready to give a Swanton onto Taylor who lay inside the ring.  Until Nitro baseball slide kicks the ladder out from right under him, dropping him onto the ring ropes.  It was done perfectly, but could have ended really badly.
 - Jeff's sunset flip powerbomb to Nitro off the top of the ladder was sick.  You could see Nitros head hit the mat the wrong way.  Surprised he didn't knock himself out.
 - Tazz and Cole were great together, but JBL and Cole are even better.  JBL's "Best match I've seen in 15 years" commentary during the ladder match made a great match one for the ages.  JBL is truly a commentary god.

Compared to this, the "MVP's butt is on fire" thing just seemed even dumber than it was...

Oh yeah and that WWE press conference was hilarious you all should watch it its pretty funny. I watched it again... the only problem is that they edited the TNA chants out though. Um so like whatever they chanted loud, or whatever there's a jitter in the video. And they also cut out The Coach when he said just like this city TNA is infeirior. But man that was some funny stuff its heavily edited, but watch it anyway. and the best part (believe it or not) was John Cena's speech) that was some of the funniest crap I've seen. you have to look at everyone's reaction its priceless
oh yeah for the press conference go there

RAW already happened, though I missed the final 2 Matches (Cena v Great Khali and Cryme Tyme vs Cade and Murdock)

Begining of the night, Cena came out and wanted another match against Umaga for the WWE Title to prove it wasn't a fluke, but Coachman came out and said "Umaga had the night off." However Cena was put in a match with the newly signed Great Khali as the Main event

Matches:
Kenny Dykstra vs Jeff Hardy for Intercontinental Title
-Jeff Hardy won after Nitro dirstracted Jeff and the Ref and Flair low-blowed Kenny
Maria and Micky James vs Melina and Victoria
-Melina pinned Maria while Micky and Vitoria fought on the outside
Rosie O'Donnell vs Donald Trump
-Donald pinned Rosie after a whale cake to the face and a flying headbutt
Cryme Tyme vs Lance Cade and Trevor Murdock
-Cryme Tyme beat Cade and Murdock
Carlito vs Chris Masters Rematch
-Carlito won after Torrie hit Masters with the Bell
John Cena vs The Great Kahli
-Cena was disqualified and then attacked by Umaga

Rated RKO came out all bandaged up and Randy Orton had a neckbrace on, they proclaimed that thety had won the war and DX will end next week when they have a handicap match against HBK Shawn Michaels

Triple H will be having surgery tomorrow, and HBK says that he will be there and that he will deal with Rated RKO next week

During his usual set of final moves, the double-edged spinebuster, he lands on his knee the wrong way and tears the quad

Edge took advantage and went for the pin, but Triple H kicked out (as probably was supposed to happen), Shawn then knocked out the ref, and they proceeded to beat Rated RKO

Triple H was then carried out by staff and backstage they had a on scene doctor look at his leg and cast it

Not really surprised at any of the names (though I have no idea/can't remember who the hell Chris Anderson is), except for the fact that WWE actually still had them under contract.

Good for Al for staying on as a trainer.  Biggest shame is Jazz. Her and Victoria were really the only Divas who were wrestlers first, and babes second (if you get my drift).

@ JFC
Chris Anderson = C. W. Anderson i think they changed his name cause it sounds like C.M. Punk
imo jazz was just a more of a diva if you go by her ECW career. on the other hand she probably always wanted to wrestle though. she even looks like one. and she did alot of physical stuff. so nm guess you're right :P

Oh, gosh...he's worked all over the place. CZW, Japan...


YouTube search yielded these vidz. (http://youtube.com/results?search_query=%22human+tornado%22)
yeah i know but see i havent seen anything japan except the old stuff from the 90s. and not very consistently either. And i haven't watched CZW in a few years also. so if he hasnt been around but 4-5 years i could have easily missed him. And i don't actually go to local indy shows as well.

I just finished watching Final Resolution I thought it was a good PPV. The only part I didn't like was Christy Hemme's speech. I have no problem with her or what she was saying I just wish she would have dropped the fake crying. I hope they do get a women's division soon I want to see Gail Kim wrestle.
Yeah. I think what it was when i watched it the first time. I was just excited to see christie in the ring again if you know what i mean. you can already tell that they are trying to start a women's division. Seems kind of early since they don't have a second hour, but i guess they know what they are doing. Not like they have to wrestle every week.
Btw Nice Alvatar

@ L-san

cool um After reading that i'm like LOL! I'm suprised that Gangriel, Rodney
Mack, and Jazz still have actually still had a contract!!!

Taken from wikipedia.org
"Chris Wright (born January 7, 1971) is an American professional wrestler, better known by the ring name, C.W. Anderson. He is best known for his run in Extreme Championship Wrestling ."
"Following the closure of ECW, Anderson wrestled in Dusty Rhodes's Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling, where he formed The Xtreme Horsemen, a stable modelled after The Four Horsemen, with Barry Windham and Steve Corino." I forgot he's more like an Indy worker lol but he was in alot of the crap i watched though. He was an "ECW Original" but he went by his real name. crazy huh...

Thats what I was thinking also. I can't wait for a 2 hour Impact so they can have longer matches and more wrestlers can get some of the spotlight.

Does starting a feud with McMahon mean that you're getting a major push?? Ever since I started watching only the big names stood up to McMahon, but in the last Raw I saw, it was Carlito who told him he's not cool. :P So does that mean Carlito's gonna get a bigger push now? Heh.
 
But wtf @ The Great Khali, yeah it's funny to see him because he's big, but his wrestling is still nothing but walking around, chopping around a bit, a kick and duh. Not very exciting -_- I mean I know close to nothing about wrestling, but that must be bad.

Yea, its possible thats one way for someone to get a push in WWE, feuding with McMahon, depending if thats the angle they're going for.

Another one who's been released by WWE is Tatanka.
They must must be really trimming their roster of mid-carders and one's who haven't seen any in-ring action in quite some time.

:ONkneelbow: Bam Bam...  That's a real loss.  Bam Bam was great in the late 80's.  He was so large yet had great agility.  I remember him dodging an avalanche with a cartwheel.  His matches in Japan, where he tagged with Vader, were awesome.  Unfortunately, he was horribly mis-used in North America.  I remember reading an article about how, during his WCW years, he ran into a burning building to successfully rescue a boy, which left him with burns on most of his body.  He was one of the great under-rated wrestlers.

RIP Bam Bam.


I hated him in the game, but I loved how he set the opponent on fire and went through the when he did his turnbuckle attack.

I'm gonna be uploading matches from NOAH's Departure 2004 event at the Tokyo Dome held on 7.10. I haven't watched these in a while, and I'm no wrestling expert, so couldn't tell you about all that stuff, but I did find some of these matches entertaining. Maybe someone who does know the stuff could write up a proper review of the matches.

There are 10 matches total.

I'm not too familiar with many wrestlers in Japan(um...I like Curry Man:lol:), so excuse me if I mess up a name.

First is Mitsuo Momota(The guy in pink) vs. Haruka Eigen(Guy in silver)
(http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/640/vlcsnap1211699ni2.th.png) (http://img251.imageshack.us/my.php?image=vlcsnap1211699ni2.png)
http://www.sendspace.com/file/asysmk

Tamon Honda(Black pants, left elbow pad), Jun Izumida(Black pants, red boots, and shoulder bandages) & Tsuyoshi Kikucki(Black and pink striped pants) vs. Masao Inoue(Red singlet), Kishin Kawabata(Black and gold singlet) & Masahi Aoyagi(Black pants)

http://www.sendspace.com/file/djgghe


(It's kinda funny how the refs count in English)

This is the list of the rest of the event, for anyone who wants to know now:
- Michael Modest & Donovan Morgan vs. Kotaro Suzuki & Ricky Marvin
- Scorpio & Richard Slinger vs. Akitoshi Saito & Makoto Hashi
- Akira Taue & Takuma Sano vs. Daisuke Ikeda & Mohammed Yone
- GHC Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Title: Naomichi Marufuji & KENTA (c) vs. Takashi Sugiura & Kendo Kashin
- GHC Jr. Heavyweight Title: Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs Jushin Thunder Liger (c)
- IWGP Tag Team Title: Yoshihiro Takayama & Minoru Suzuki (c) vs. Takeshi Morishima & Takeshi Rikio
- GHC Tag Team Title: Mitsuharu Misawa & Yoshinari Ogawa (c) vs. Keiji Muto & Taiyo Kea
- GHC Heavyweight Title: Kenta Kobashi (c) vs. Jun Akiyama

Post by: chera on January 20, 2007, 07:33:25 AM
The NOAH's Departure 2004 Dome showwas a big event.  Like many Dome events, they padded the card with lots of non-Noah talent: Liger challenging the Junior Heavyweight champ, Takayama and Suzuki defending the NJPW IWGP belts against Rikio and Morishima, and they borrowed Muto and Kea from AJPW.

I've never really cared too much about the Noah or AJPW undercards.  But the main event fights look very interesting.  Kenta had come back from knee surgery in 2002 and won the belt from Misawa in 2003.  The Wrestling Observer gave him its Wrestler of the Year award in 2003 and 2004, so you can be sure that his match with Akiyama, who was almost-but-not-quite-at the Misawa/Kobashi/Kawada-level during the 90's .

I think (but am not sure) that the Misawa/Ogawa vs. Muto/Kea tag match was the first time that AJPW/Noah ace Misawa had ever fought NJPW/AJPW ace Muto.  Lots of anticipation in that face-off.  Kea was one of the few AJPW wrestlers who refused to defect to Noah along with Misawa, and was given a big push in AJPW as a result - he won the AJPW Triple Crown last year.  So that was a very big tag match.

^LMAO at kamei doing the 'dont fire eric' stuff.

Anyway those upload wrestling matches,is it full or clipped? (sadly i can't download because im in university campus lab) its a good way to introduce puroresu and Noah promotion to those who never watch japanese wrestling.

Back in 2004 Akiyama vs Kobashi,the feud was build for months and it was student vs sempai(They tag together frequently,kobashi playing the sempai role back in 90s era of All Japan and even winning tag titles together,having great great match against Misawa/Ogawa and Taue/Kawada).

It was Kobashi 9th defense after successfully defense it against the likes of chono,nagata and takayama.Everyone thought it was Akiyama time(the underdog) and fans believe Akiyama is the only one who can beat Kobashi(including me eventhough im a huge fan of Kobash,no heel or face here).

Check it out,because the main event will blow you away,theres ring pyschology and sick bumps,crowd was red hot.

Now that Misawa winning the GHC champion for the 2nd time(beating naomichi) and successfully make his first defense against morishima recently.And then Kobashi make his comeback after fighting tumor in his stomach or lungs i forgot,if misawa can defend it for quite a while i would love to see another misawa vs kobashi epic battle.

RIP Bam bam bigelow.

I half-assed Raw tonight

-HBK had a street fight with Edge (Edge won)
Edge pinned HBK after Orton used the RKO, afterwards, Orton threw Edge over the top rope and was about to Con-chair-to HBK, until Flair interfeered. Flair attacked Orton until Kenny attacked Flair, and then Carlito attacked Kenny. HBK got back up and Sweet-Chin-Music Kenny, Carlito, and Orton.
-Kenny faced Carlito
Kenny beat Carlito
-7-Person Eliminate Cena match (Great Khali won)
Prior to his match with Coach, Coach made an impromptu Over-the-Top rope Elimination match between Cena, The Worlds Greatest Tag, Cade/Murdock, Viscera, and Great Khali, with the stipulation that Coach's match only starts once Cena has been eliminated. Great Khali eliminated everyone except Murdock, who Cena eliminated.
-Cena faced Coach (No Contest)
Umaga interfeers and then body splashes Cena on a table from the top rope
-Micky James and Candice Mitchell faced Victoria and Melina
Candice pinned Victoria tp win for her team
-Jeff Hardy faced Joey Mercury (Hardy Won)
Nitro and Melina was removed from ringside after trying to pull off the mats on the outside, Jeff wins using a twist of fate, and causing damage to Mercury's face.
-Super Crazy faced Chris Masters (Super Crazy Won)
Masters put the Master Lock, of which Super Crazy reversed into a pin, Masters (not wanting to break the hold) got pinned.

I probably missed a bunch, oh well

doesn't look good since the match-type is lat man standing, so the chance of the injury itself worsening is pretty high, so weither or not he wins, he might still hafta give it up like Batista did

I liked the show too. The rumble at the end was fun. thumbtacs.. ouch. I got myne from PWS forums.. I'll watch it on TV next time, so i can see it in the highest possible quality. too bad WEW can't be that good, with their 30 mins show. Suprisingly, I knew all of the wrestlers, except the one who Wrestled with Jack Evens..  They Had, Justin Credible, New Jack, Teddy Hart, Vampiro, Chaos, and prob someone else. oh yeah Sean Waltman aka 6-Pac/X-Pac. and the music performance didn't seem to take up that much time... and the Ring enterances were very short... which is what you have to do in a 21 mins show. So i think it was pretty good 1st show.

Jack Evans wrestled Matt Sydal. Both of them are among my favorite wrestlers in Ring of Honor. I have no idea who the girl with him was. The way they were talking about Matt it sounds like he is a heel which is weird for me because I've only see him wrestle as a face. Since its only a 30 minute show I expect alot of short matches but its still probably going to be fun to watch. I think 6-Pac is going to be their first Champion.

I can't wait to see Team Dragon Gate.

Royal Rumble is tonight

Matches:
Inter-brand Over the Top Rope 30 Man Elimination Match
Lashley vs Test for ECW Championship
Cena vs Umaga Last Man Standing for WWE Championship
Batista vs Mr. Kennedy for World Championship
Hardys vs MNM

Notable RR entrees:
Great Khali (Size and Power)
Kane (Record holder for eliminations)
Chris Benoit, Rick Flair (Past Winners)
Undertaker (Cause Smackdown left off with him on friday)
HBK (RAW left off with him on friday)
Both Hardys (doing 2 matches that day)
The Miz (definately not gonna win)

Anyone gonna watch it? Predictions?

Post by: Tanier on January 28, 2007, 08:55:24 AM
LOL! The Miz
oh yeah um can't forget about king booker T.
After watching Smackdown. I really would be kind of bad for Raw if Shawn Micheals didn't win, because.. John Cena would have nobody new or interesting to face. If Its khali... oh man.. I think it'll be a good time to leave to avoid traffic if John Cena vs Khali is the main event.. Not sure if anybody would actually care.. I really would be turned off by that match.

My pick is Shawn Micheals oh and I hope the Royal Rumble ends the PPV, cause that would be awesome you know.

For some reason I have never seen the entire royal rumble live. something weird or bad happens.. Like a power outage. Every year. like either the power goes out. or I'm out of town.. this will be the first one i watch live for a change..

i've never seen the PPV, cause costs too much, so I end up catching stuff and results

Cena's chance of winning isn't as good due to his ruptured spleen, and even if he wins, he might be out afterwards cause of the way Umaga fights

As far as the matches are concerned

RR Match: HBK is the favorite, Rated RKO is prolly gonna end up eliminating themselves
MNM v Hardys: Hardys are gonna win prolly
ECW Championship: Lashley since RVD technically didn't have a fair shot yet
World Championship: Batista, since they wouldn't let him lose his title to Mr. Kennedy
WWE Championship: I would say Cena, but after the injury, I don't think they'll let him win

Batista won his match, like I thought

-edit (about a hr later)-
Cena won his match by making Umaga pass out with the STFU and subsequently having the ref count him out

So all the champions retained

-edit (a little while later)-
Undertaker has won the royal Rumble, eliminating Shawn Michaels
The two were the last 2 in the ring, so congrads to them, Undertaker will be going to Wrestlemania and the last few years, the RR winner won the title at the Wrestlemania main event

Post by: Roxasu on January 29, 2007, 06:00:19 AM
think so, as for how the rumble match went, my guess is that the big guys tossed the smaller guys and then the remaining smaller guys double teamed the bigger guys until Undertaker hit the ring and started clearing until it was Michaels, Taker, and prolly a big guy, Michaels and Taker took out the other big guy and went to beating eachother, until Taker's size took out Michaels

Taker's definately going to win at Wrestlemania, since all the recent RR Winners have won at Wrestlemania, and Taker's got a huge undefeated streak at Wrestlemania

Post by: Aioros on January 29, 2007, 06:22:51 AM
The question now is which title 'Taker is going to go for. With Cena's "injury", there's a chance that his title can switch hands any week from now and will probably go to any of the RAW heels (Edge, Orton, Umaga, Khali, etc.) or he can vacate the title, similar to what Batista did.  

Taker vs. Batista would be good too since they haven't fought each other yet and Taker's probably gonna win it because of his Wrestlemania streak but it'll be good to if Taker goes against a heel.

Batista could lose the title in no way out,if not then we have face vs face in wrestlemania,another possibility is that Taker jump to Raw.

Cena vs umaga should be interesting.

apparently those who came to RAW tonight, got money for it

storywise McMahon talked his mouth off before Donald Trump (real one) popped up and showered the fans with money, supposedly real money in bills of 20, 50, and 100

RAW Summary

-HBK in the ring
HBK announces he wants the WWE Title if Undertake doesn't pick it, Cena comes out and agrees, Edge interupts saying he wants it, and finally Orton comes out to disagree with Edge saying he should get it. Vince interupts all and makes a tag title match for the 4
-Kenny Disktra and Chris Masters vs Carlito and Super Crazy
Carlito pinned Kenny following a back breaker
-Cryme Tyme vs The Worlds Greatest Tag Team
Shelton Benjamin rolled JTG
-Melina vs Maria to become Woman's #1 Contender
Melina won following a new move
-Umaga vs Val Venus
Umaga beats Val Venus (duh)
-Vince is Trumped by Trump
Trump showers fans with 20s, 50s, and 100s
-Jeff Hardey vs Great Khali for the Intercontinental Title
Great Khali won by countout, so Jeff stays champ
-Rated RKO vs HBK and John Cena for the World Tag Team Titles
Cena won by hitting Orton with the F-U, following that HBK attempted Sweet Chin Music on Cena, but Cena avoided running into it, The Undertaker appeared at the end of RAW looking at Cena, thats right Undertaker has jumped ship probably and is most likely looking for the WWE Championship

Still the other title for him to consider.

Just finished the Royal Rumble.  Overall, I'd give it a thumbs down.  Hardyz vs. MNM was great, but the main event was a bit boring.  After seeing the "dreams come true" Benoit and Rey wins of the past few years, Undertaker's win seems just so-so.  

At least it'll drive the rating up, since the champs of Raw, Smackdown, and ECW are all faces.  Will it be face vs. face for the Wrestlemania main event, or will there be some last minute belt changes?  Makes for some good TV.

Saddest part of the Rumble: Khali eliminates like half a dozen legitimately good wrestlers.

Post by: shirenuファクトリー on January 31, 2007, 12:16:31 PM
*shirenu canons Khali*
I can't stand him!!! I'll show him chops and slams!!! GAHH Look at me, I walk around looking big! I must be a great wrestler because I'm so BIG! .... -_-

No match with Khali is interesting, we all know he's just gonna "beat someone up" because "he's a monster", same thing goes for Umaga. B O R I N G !!!! What annoys me the most is that those guys Khali "beats up" really are a billion times better wrestlers than him, they could really beat his ass but can't because it's in the storyline that ARRR KHALI BE MONSTARR HARRHARR. He's so SLOW, too, it's ridiculous to see him chop people when you know anyone could easily dodge it. BAH!!

Ok sorry for the rant. :P

I like The Undertaker, but him winning Royal Rumble was kinda boring. I'm hoping he doesn't choose Raw but that the HBK VS. Cena match could come true - I like them both a lot, but Cena's had the belt for ages so losing it to Michaels wouldn't be bad. Also maybe one of them could turn heel and it'd be all cool and stuff. Not that I know about this heel-face thing a lot, I haven't really 'lived through it' as a fan yet (been watching for a year now, the only change was that from a whiny bitch Triple H turned into awesomeness).

In general I liked Royal Rumble and the latest RAW, just those little things that annoyed me.

Why do I keep dreaming of Edge though?? Last night was like the third time I dreamt of him. It was nothing special, though, I just remember he was there. Oh well, he's funny.

AH and a few days ago I finally saw the London VS Kendrick match, ahh they're the best. :heart: Ok NOW I'M DONE!

I like Kenny.  He isn't as "natural" in the ring as Randy Orton, but he's got decent enough skills, and he's intense.  The match with Lashley was a good place for him to raise his profile a bit.  He should be put in feuds with the fast-rising mid-tier guys, like MNM, the Hardyz, Carlito, etc.  Hopefully over the past month he's made people forget about his Spirit Squad days.  

This is looking to be a decent Wrestlemania.  We haven't had a face vs. face Wrestlemania main event ('Taker vs. Batista, HBK vs. Cena) in a loooong time.  The build-up for that should be interesting.  I'm also wondering whether Randy Orton or Test will make a face-turn in their feud.  It also seems as if their building something along the lines of Trump vs. McMahan - that should be fun, if devoid of any real wrestling.

Well, he needs to improve more if he wants to be on the top and stay on the top. But he's pretty good that night where he can hold Bobby Lashley into an intense fight. Bobby Lashley would easily dispatch him though, but Kenny outsmarted him sometimes.:)

Ever since hardcore holly messed up his back on that suplex there really hasn't been any hardcore matches (extreme rules). In my opinion, i don't think there will probably be anymore at all. If there is, it won't be any good anyway. In ECW i mean.

Could end up a no contest,each team turn their back and dont trust each other...its hard to predict since all 4 of em are good guys.

I hope that Undertaker and Batista win at No way Out.
I hope that Cena gets his butt kick by Taker and Batista.
 But I think the most likely result is a no contest as the WWE would want anyone to lose credibility on the run up to wrestlemania 23.

Cena and HBK beat Batista and Taker.
Lashley beat down Kennedy.
London and Kendrick beat Deuce and Domino.
Chavo won the Cruiserweight Title.
Kane gave a royal beating to King Booker.
Finlay and Little Bastard beat Boogeyman and Little Boogeyman.
Benoit and The Hardys beat MNM and MVP.

Steiner came back the Impact before the Against All Odds PPV. Speaking of Chris Sabin and Jerry Lynn they faced each other at Against All Odds and Sabin won again by cheating if I'm remembering correctly.

I can't wait for the Destination X PPV they are having an X Division scaffold match called Elevation X which I have high hopes for.

Former ECW Champion Mike Awesome Passes Away
Date Added: February 19, 2007
Story By: Daniel Pena
source: Wrestling Observer

Dave Meltzer is reporting that former ECW World Champion Mike Awesome (real name Michael Alfonso) has passed away. He was found dead on Saturday evening in the Tampa area according to those close to the family. He was only 42 years old.

At about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday night, friends were going to his home in Tampa, Florida to pick him up and go out. He never answered the door and they found him hanging in the home. The death is believed to be due to suicide pending results of the autopsy.

Mike Awesome passes away
February 19, 2007

WWE is saddened by news of the passing of Mike Alfonso, better known to wrestling fans as Mike Awesome. He was 42.

Mike Awesome's first major exposure came overseas, where he became one of the Japan's top stars. Awesome would eventually become a star and champion in America while wrestling for Extreme Championship Wrestling. Following his successful run in ECW, Awesome spent time working in WCW and later WWE before retiring to his native Tampa, Florida.

While in ECW, Awesome was a two-time World Champion and Tag Team Champion. His matches with Masato Tanaka, including a show-stealer at One Night Stand in 2005 were among the most memorable in ECW history.

RAW last night:
(though I half-assed it)
-Jeff Hardy vs Umaga for the Intercontinental Title
Umaga beat Jeff winning the title (Umaga will represent Vince at Wresltemania)
-Ric Flair and Carlito vs Lance Cade and Trevor Murdock
The good guys team won
-Melina vs Mickie James for the Womens Title
Melina wins the title
-Edge vs RVD in round 1 of the Money in the Bank Tournament
Edge won by spearing RVD after Orton's distraction
-Great Khali vs The Highlanders
Meh....You guys can guess easily who won
-John Cena vs Randy Orton
Cena won when Edge came to the ring and him and Orton attacked Cena. Before a con-chair-to, HBK came and cleared the ring with a chair.

Next Week will have a tag match between the current World Tag Champs and Rated RKO for the World Tag Team Championship Title

Mr. Perfect is going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame

RVD vs Edge match was great,it was ppv worthy...anyway it would be better if wwe put this two in the money in the bank match instead one of them qualifying it.

And its great when the late Mr.Perfect been inducted into 2007 wwe hall of fame,back in the days wwf would show a segment where he'll do amazing stuff.

crap I lost the message I typed :lol:
anyway I basically said. I want Foley's book, and i want shawn's old book.. Its like 5 bucks now ;)
Anyway I'm watching this TNA PPV now its 4:20 AM I'm not drunk or anthing like my mood or signature says.. and this is one reallly good paper view. This may be the best one they had. I'm saying that and i'm only an hour and a half through its pretty amazing lol. I don't think wrestlemania will be this good. but i'm looking foward to it anyway i guess. ja na minna-san. Long live double double ew

edit: I hate double posting so here's an edit. This just popped in my head just now. I'm actually starting to like lashley, because he did a decent promo on vince. His wrestling is getting better, and He doesn't sound so much like a girl. If he acts good and does NOT talk in his natural voice, and stops the "soft spoken" thing and keeps on getting better in the ring, he'll  be one of my favorites. anyway i'm slowly starting to like him now.

Anyway I'm watching this TNA PPV now its 4:20 AM I'm not drunk or anthing like my mood or signature says.. and this is one reallly good paper view. This may be the best one they had. I'm saying that and i'm only an hour and a half through its pretty amazing.


I just watched Destination X today. The Elevation X scaffold match was my favorite. I wasn't sure they could do that much stuff on such a small area, but Rhino and AJ Styles pulled it off. I'm glad they didn't make any mistakes that would have caused either them to get hurt.

I agree.  Back in the old days when ECW was held in dirty dark bingo halls, his gimmick was fun and his brawling seemed intense, but in the bright glare of international television (and under WWE booking), he's just a drunk middle-aged asshole.  Like Terry Funk, but without Terry's great interview skills.

My Predictions for Wrestlemania

HBK vs Cena WWE Championship
-HBK, Cena's been champ for almost a year
Batista vs Undertaker World Heavyweight Championship
-Undertaker, his streak, the fact that RR winners tend to win wrestlemania
Lashley vs Umaga Hair vs Hair Match BotB
-Lashley, Vince shaved won't be as big a problem as Trump getting shaved
MitB Latter Match
-Randy Orton, the underdog
Melina vs Ashley
-Melina, cause unfortunately the Woman's Title is a RAW belt
Kane vs The Great Khali
-No Contest most likely, since the rivalry just started

This is one of the worst Wrestlemania cards of modern times I've ever seen.  Cena sucks, and I doubt that even HBK can pull a good match out of him.  I doubt Batista and Undertaker can pull out a good match either.  Something good will probably come out of the MitB ladder match though.

The saddest thing is the only match I really care about is the hair vs. hair match.  War Trump! :lol:

well yeah the card is terrible ewww its kind of hard to say it but yeah its terrible. Seriously though. If this was the card for WWE RAW and They advertised it.. I would not watch it lol.

Roxasu your preditions I agree with all of them lol. and @ chera i have absolutely no interest in the hair vs. hair match. on the bright side since wrestlemania is the biggest ppv of the year its very easy to watch this for free at clubs... friends houses.. family members. or online etc. In fact, I can't decided where I'm going to watch it. (it won't be internet) I prob go watch it at my brother house.

 man that tna ppv was good earlier this week i prob watch it again tomorrow lol for the 3rd or 4th time. lol

um... anway wrestlemania. like I was saying its going to be free for me, and atleast It will be refreshing to see shawn micheals win the belt or something if he doesn't I'm not going to be watching WWE for a long time I'm protesting lol. I feel like the New York Crowd at One Night Stand. RVD vs Cena "If Cena Wins We Riot!"

WWE RAW

In tribute to WWE Hall of Famer Arnold Skaaland

-Wrestlemania Reversal Match 1: HBK vs JBL
JBL comes out and just rants for a while about the HBK vs Cena match and about how HBK hasn't superkicked Cena yet
HBK delivers his counter-argument, and finishes by superkicking JBL
Match never happens as JBL is still in retirement

-Master Lock Challenge: ECW World Champ Bobby Lashley
Bobby Lashley breaks the Master Lock, Vince has his men "escort" Lashley out of the arena

-Money in the Bank Battle Royale (Over the Top Rope)
Match came to be as a result of Edge losing his MitB spot when we got himself ejected from Orton's ringside on ECW
Ric Flair, Nitro, Super Crazy, Carlito, Val Venus, Charlie Haas, Shelton Benjamin, Viscera, Edge, Kenny Dykstra
Viscera is eliminated by all the other contestants at once
Edge leaves the ring and hurts himself
Super Crazy is eliminated by Haas and Benjamin
Val Venus eliminated by Nitro
Charlie Haas eliminated by Carlito
Benjamin eliminated by Ric Flair
Dykstra eliminated by Flair
Nitro eliminated by Carlito
Flair eliminates Carlito
Edge sneaks back in and screws Flair, faking the injury to be able to stay out of the ring

-Eugene vs Umaga
This match came as a result of Eugene spilling something onto Vince's shirt
Eugene is beaten by Umaga, duh
Vince then gets Eugene strapped to the barber chair and randomly cuts Eugene's hair

-Melina vs Candice Michelle Bra and Panties Match
Melina stips Candice in the match wooo
Afterwards, Ashley comes to the ring
After Melina hits Ashley, Ashley stips Melina's top
Khali comes out and Melina jumps Ashley, beats her, and leaving Ashley for Khali
The King hits Khali, making him drop Ashley, but is attacked by Khali

-Randy Orton vs Jeff Hardy
Orton is DQed when Edge comes to the ring and throws a latter in, Orton uses the latter to hit Jeff
As Orton and Edge call out eachother, Jeff sneaks in a Twist of Fate on Orton, and then sets up the latter next to the turnbuckle
Jeff then does a leg drop using the latter as a boost onto Orton, and Edge leaves happy

-1st Look at SC Steve Austin's movie Condemmed
A movie that is basically "Battle Royale" with criminal inmates
Austin and a buncha convicts are sent to an island to duke it out with explosive collars on their legs, the winner gets set free (sound familiar?) (Off-topic: It was confirmed that this is NOT the remake of Battle Royale that was announced last year)

-Wrestlemania Reversal Match 2: Cena vs Chris Benoit
HBK is sitting at ringside to comment on the match
Big Moments: Cena's near collision with HBK outside, Benoit sharpshooter on Cena
FU, reversed into Crippler Crossface, reversed into STFU for the win
Michaels playing head games with Cena
Cena plays head games with HBK
JBL drops a bomb on the Tag Champs

Austin's Wrestlemania All Grown Up promo lol

-Next Week on RAW:

We saw full features for JR, Mr. Perfect, and Dusty Rhodes. Saw no intro but did get Lawler's acceptance speech. Didn't see anything else for anyone else. :evil:

Wrestlemania 23 Results: Lets see how my predictions went

The ECW Originals beat the New Breed
The Undertaker's streak holds up, he beats Batisa and is the new Heavyweight Champion (Prediction correct)
Chris Benoit defeated MVP and retains his title
Khali beats Kane
Mr. Kennedy outlasts the other 7 to win the Money in the Bank Latter Match (Prediction wrong)
Vince is bald after Lashely defeated Umaga (Prediction right)
Melina retains the Womans Championship (Prediction right)
Cena outlasts HBK to retain the WWe Title (Prediction wrong)

It kinda sucked that they'd let Cena win over HBK via Tap out. Why are they pushing Cena so much? Bret Hart wasn't able to tap out HBK!  :smoke:

Undertaker taking the win is already a given. They wouldn't break his record, its his legacy.  :hee:

Money in the Bank sucked. Too many participants, too many ladders. Should have stayed with 6. I really don't like Kennedy, wished it was Edge taking the win though. Give the belt back to Edge!  :tantrum:

Wrestlemania highlights:
 - The Money in the Bank Ladder match.
 - The backstage dance party with Slick, Jimmy Heart, IRS, and RICKY THE DRAGON STEAMBOAT! 
 - Trump no-selling the Boogeyman
 - The Hair vs. Hair match
 - Benoit vs. MVP.  Much better than expected, and that's the first time in years the swan-dive head butt has actually gotten the 3-count.
 - The last 5 minutes of Cena vs. HBK, especially that stunning sequence that began when Cena put HBK on the top rope

Overall, it was better than expected.  MitB was a fun spot fest, but it was a bit hard to cheer for it after Edge was stretchered out.  Scary spot.  The last match really made it all worthwhile.  It went pretty well, marred only by Cena forgetting that his knee was seriously injured.  I liked the theme of Cena, the stronger and younger guy, getting the better of HBK, the older veteran, in the punch vs. chop exchanges.  The very end of that match was perfection.  I wish HBK won it, but it was still a good ending.  I also liked the ending video sequence where they showed thee clip of Ricky the Dragon Steamboat followed immediately by Chris Benoit.  As usual, the best wrestlers are stuck in the undercard.

Prolly they'll take it from him at the end of the show and make up some stupid backstory later, or sign him to the WWE and have him actually defend or something

Or drop the belt entirely, but regardless, we all know they can't very well let him keep it if he's actually a fan

In other RAW stuff:

-Torrie Wilson won the Diva fashion show

-Johnny Nitro beat Eugene (duhhh)

-Worlds Greatest Tag Team beat Carlito and Ric Flair (Carlito getting mad afterwards)

-Lance Cade beat Jeff Hardy

-Santino Marella beat Umaga for the Intercontinental Title (with Bobby Lashely's help)
Santino is the fan me and Chera are talking about, he was picked by Vince. Shortly into the match, Vince made the match "No holds Barred." As Santino was getting beat up by Umaga, Lashely stormed the ring and took out Estrada and Vince, then hit Umaga 3 times with a chair and speared him. Lashely then placed Santino onto Umaga and held him down for the 3 count.

-John Cena beat Rated RKO
Funny thing about that match, almost all of the fans there Boo'ed Cena and cheered for Rated RKO, when HBK came to the ring, everyone cheered for him. The end of the match had Edge accidentally spear Orton, and HBK accidentally super-kick Edge, Cena then purposely FU'ed HBK, and pinned Edge for the win.

NEXT WEEK:
-Wrestlemania rematch: HBK vs John Cena (non-title)

็He was an OVW wrestler.

I was expecting that Vince would find a way to screw him of the belt by the time the two hours was up.  And then have some Brit win the belt next week (when Raw is in London), and then also get screwed out of the belt before the show is over.  It's an old promoter trick: let your champ loose to some home town boy when you're on a foreign tour, only to win it back right before coming back to the States.  I have no idea how Vince is gonna be running with this though...

-Shane made the match into a 3 on 1 No-DQ match

Matt Hardy vs Trevor Murdock
-Trevor Murdock beat Matt Hardy using a high risk move

Melina vs Maria
-Melina won fairly fast

Carlito vs The Great Khali
-Khali won, Carlito and Flair faction is dissolving

John Cena vs Shawn Michaels
-Kinda boring, alot of build-up and playing, no actual action until 2nd half, lots of close pins and hold-pins (pins made by holds while forcing the opponent down) went on for 45+ min, until HBK hit 2 Superkicks

Edge vs Randy Orton

Kennedy cash in the MITB in WM24,the countdown is on indeed.

Who could've thought Mr.Khalis the one KOed HBK,Edge and Orton,when the music hit I thought Muhammad Hassan made his return :)

Rumor is that 'Taker's bicep tendon was completely torn.  That explains why his right bicep was completely taped up.  JBL and Cole even mentioned it during Backlash.  The fact that he still fought Backlash (and threw so many clotheslines and even a superplex!) and Raw just shows you how tremendous a champion 'Taker is.

And the reason why Edge picked up the title, instead of Kennedy, is because Kennedy had previously torn his triceps right off the bone.  Both Kennedy and Undertaker's injuries will require surgery and ~8 months of recovery.  That's a damn shame: both the WWE's ace and miracle-chan down for the rest of the year.

^Kennedy's isn't that serious anymore, he'll be out for 8 weeks, and doesn't need surgery, apparently after re-examination, his tricep didn't come off the bone

I thought Smackdown was pretty good.  The opener of Matt Hardy vs. MVP was good, the Chavo & D&D vs. London & Kendrick & Jimmy Yang was great, and Benoit vs. Finlay was good as usual.  The net result was to make MVP look very strong while exposing Benoit's left leg as a weak spot for their 2-out-of-3-falls PPV match on Sunday.

Unfortunately, we had to wade through some crap like the Undertaker's spirit leaving his body, Ozzy, and the Miz.

That Elijah Burke vs C.M. Punk match on Judgement Day PPV was really good.  prob be the best match of the whole show. (Yes I've seen better C.M. Punk matches), however it was prob his best WWE match. No comment on anything else... its about 2 hours and some change of the ppv left.

Cena retains, Khali taps to the STFU
McMahon retains, makes a fake loophole that Vince himself had to be pinned (Lashely pinned Shane)
Edge retains, attacking Batista's injury
Orton wins, Michaels passed out shortly into the match

Also Ariel, Scotty 2 Hotty, and one of the Spirit Squad members have all been released, along with Sabu

Quoting HJU member UltraMatt for this one.

Quote from: UltraMatt @ HJU
I am afraid that I have some news. It is my duty as a wrestling fan to report this, but Jeff Jarrett's wife, Jill Jarrett, passed away last night. She had been battling cancer on and off for several months, but it got severe two months ago which is due to Jarrett's lack of television performances.

Jeff is a widower with children, and I send him my deepest sympathy's to both himself and his children. Whilst many people see Jeff Jarrett as the largely despised heel NWA Champion of TNA 6 months ago recently turned face, Jeff Jarrett is indeed a great guy. In a recent special on NoDq.com, it showed Jarrett's feelings towards Owen Hart's death, as I'm not sure if you know, but Backlash of this year was held in the same arena that Owen Hart made his fall since May 23rd 1999, thus meaning that today is the EIGHT anniversary of his death. I miss Owen.

Long Live The Hart Foundation!
R.I.P. Mrs Jarrett :prayers:

R.I.P. Owen :prayers:

God I can't believe it's been that long already. (http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c340/J-F-C/cry.gif)

Not sure whether to put this under MMA or Wrestling, but Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar just faced off in Japan as part of Antonio Inoki's IGF Fighting Now Bom Ba Ye promotion on 29 June.  They put in a good match that reminded me of their WWE matches, but wasn't as good as some of their best.  A sweet touch was seeing Angle throw a double rolling German suplex, days after Chris Benoit's tragic death. 

Seeing this style of match fought in Japan, and with the Japanese fan reactions, reminded me how much WWE's early 2000's style of matches was based on the early 1990's matches of AJPW.  Interesting ending, that could only work in Japan, given Brock's entry into MMA.  Also on the card were Kevin Randleman, Mark Coleman, and Josh Barnett.  Josh was stunning in his match.

(silly fangirl post coming up, warning warning)

Aaghh... Any idea how long Edge will be out?? Saw his little bit in American Bash and I already miss him, ROFL!!!

The Great American Bash... Pretty much sucked ;_; Good things: Jimmy Wang Yang. And uhh....... ... Yeah.

I didn't watch the Khali match because I just knew he would win and I knew it'd piss me off to watch the match just to see him win. I probably would've rewinded and watched it if the outcome had been different :P I skipped the Cena and Lashley match too. I've been waiting for Cena to lose the title or turn heel or do SOMETHING different, but I'd rather not see him lose his title to someone as boring as Lashley LOL. Yes, because to shirenu as a viewer the most important thing is to NOT BE BORING :lol:

I'm starting to actually root for Orton and Melina, even if they're heels. Most divas are so boring, but Melina has always stood out, even if it was because she was so annoying. I hope Melina becomes women's champ again at some point :D

And Orton, I guess he's also the kinda guy that you love to hate. But also, I hate these storylines that involve wrestlers who have supposedly retired like decades ago (yeah yeah exaggerating but whatever). In those matches I always root for Orton, it's just mostly embarrasing to watch some old grandpas move around in the ring in slow-mo trying to look tough. TEEHEE~~

WHERE ARE LONDON AND KENDRICK?? Since they were drafted to Raw they've like disappeared somewhere. GRR!!! :(

Can't wait for Triple H to come back at Summer Slam (?), maybe things will start to make sense again.

YES ! I am not the only person who thinks Cena is boring. I think he needs a personality transplant or make him a heel. I cant understand why the WWE is pushing Cena so much. He cant wrestle, he doesn't sell moves,he is dull and most of all he is a chav.
Any idea when Undertaker is back ?

I didn't really mean to say that Cena is boring because I think he's a good talker and he's made me laugh XD But I meant to say that where he is now is boring: he's been the champ as long as I've been into WWE and I'd like to see a change! Or if he has to be champ, make him a heel. I hardly ever watch his matches anymore cuz it's so boring to know it will just lead to him winning the title again, and nothing changes... Too bad there aren't really any good challengers there now.

I always record the episode if Smackdown and Raw, but since i dont have cable or satellite for English channel, i record the Spanish Version which aired one day before the next RAW. i record it because my mom doesn't like me watching it, so i end up recording it and watch it when she's at work.

But since i know Morning Musume, i don't seem to have time for WWE anymore, and i ended up stopping watching it and lost interests in it. But i do like it a lot before, i have a "Heartbreak and Triumph" by Shawn Michaels book autographed by him and a "Divas Do New York" DVD signed by Torrie Wilson and Trish Stratus at Best Buy in Chicago North Avenue.

Yeah but recently, i saw a WWE magazine at Walgreens and read that Mysterio is back, so i might be interest in it again

since Summerslam is just round the corner, i was looking up old summerslam info on wiki
i saw something funny while running around PPVs
though it's off now, apparently someone had posted for next month's unforgiven that Randy Orton will defend against Triple H
of course, it's wikipedia, so someone could have randomly posted it as a joke
now if you go one PPV past that, for Cyber Sunday, apparently John Cena is going defend and his opponent will be either Triple H or Randy Orton
of course, this is still wiki, so the info could very well be false (also states that Khali will defend and 2 of his opp are Batista and Kane)

John Cena has been champion for like a year since retaining against Edge, it's about time he loses his title, and they're setting things up for Orton to win
Now if Orton does win, then Triple H has a good chance of being the next #1 contender (his big return, as well as revenge for Shawn)

If HHH doesn't beat Cena for the championship then Cena's probably never going to drop it until filming starts for that new movie, where he'll probably get "injured"  :banghead:
It's hard to believe he's "Overcoming the odds" when he never ****ing loses, lol.

Now you all now that none of the following would have happened (let alone made public) if it weren't for the recent Congressional hearings and media circus that the WWE has been going through:

Wellness Policy Suspensions

Written: August 30, 2007
Based on independent information received from investigators from the Albany County, NY D.A.’s office, WWE has today, under the penalty provisions of its wellness policy, issued suspension notices to 10 of its performers for violations. It has been WWE’s practice not to release the names of those who have been suspended, but notice has been sent to all WWE performers that names of anyone who is suspended under the Wellness Policy as of November 1 will be made public.

Superstars rumoured to have been included in this suspension include:
- Randy Orton
- William Regal
- Booker T
- Chavo Guerrero
- John Morrison
- Charlie Hass
- Shane Helms
- Ken Kennedy
- Anthony Carelli (aka Santino Marella)
- Mike Bucci (aka "WWE fitness guru" Simon Dean)
- Funaki
- Chris Masters
- Batista

here something I got from an article:

WWE policy begun requires a 30-day suspension without pay for a first violation, a 60-day suspension for a second violation and firing for a third violation. Performers are tested at least four times per year.

CM punk is now the ECW Champ.
I'm guessing this came about because of Morrison violating WWE's Wellness Policy, and will end being suspended, so the belt/title had to be lost to CM Punk, so was the #1 challenger.

Wonder what that will mean for someone like Umaga, who's also on the list, and is the current IC Champ.

A few things that I just read over @HJU: At tonights RAW taping, Umaga, as punishment for violating the Wellness Policy, will lose the IC title to Jeff Hardy.

Cryme Tyme has been released form their contract, due to some incident with Cade and Murdoch at a RAW Indiana House show.

Also, someone from RAW will be fired at the shows taping tonight.
Not sure who that will be.

Post by: LME on September 03, 2007, 05:01:38 PM
Here's the skinny on Cryme Tyme's release.
Credit to Misfits923 for posting this @HJU.

Quote from: Misfits923@HJU
PWTorch.com reports that the Cryme Tyme release stemmed from actions the tag team performed following their Terre Haute house show match against Cade and Murdoch.

According to the Torch report, the two teams had reportedly been developing heat with each other over the course of the past few weeks. That built into an incident prior to the match, in which Shad Gaspard told Lance Cade that "what happens in the ring happens," essentially implying that there might be some stiff shots exchanged. Cade mocked Gaspard's threat in front of a number of wrestlers backstage.

In order to get back at Cryme Tyme for what they perceived as a threat, Cade and Murdoch met with the referee and arranged a rib. Essentially, the plan was to "fast count" while JTG was out of the ring, resulting in a count out loss for Cryme Tyme; Cryme Tyme was unaware of this plan until it was executed in front of the live audience.

In what sources say was a move to save face, Cryme Tyme then decided, without telling the referee, to execute their finishing move on him (they reportedly did so safely, but it was still unexpected). They also tossed his belt into the crowd.

Words were exchanged in the backstage area following the segment, and WWE management eventually made the call to release Cryme Tyme, who were reportedly on thin ice with management anyway due to what some backstage perceived as an attitude problem. The tag team was reportedly unhappy and surprised with WWE's decision.

The increased scrutiny on WWE stemming from the Benoit tragedy, the Congressional investigation and the recent steroid controversy has resulted in a zero-tolerance policy backstage.

Post by: Roxasu on September 04, 2007, 02:06:13 AM
Cena just beat the crap out of GM Regal, so he might be the one to be "booted"
But if not, he'll be facing Orton on Unforgiven

Since Cryme Time was booted, their #1 positions will be given to the winner of a match btw "The Worlds Greatest Tag Team" and "London and Kendrick"

Eugene has also been released, but not a big deal, he wasn't being used anyway

Umaga dropped to Jeff as we all knew would happen, but he'll be in a match with Carlito against Triple H (where he'd prolly lose)

RAW Recap
-Umaga vs Jeff Hardy
Umaga drops to Jeff as everyone suspected already
-Maria vs Beth Phoenix
Beth wins, and then declares that she's facing Candice at Unforgiven
-Randy Orton's Explaination
Regal gives Orton a rematch at Unforgiven, then Cena beats the crap out of Regal (Cena was being boo'ed until he beat up Regal, then he was applauded)
-London and Kendrick vs Haas and Benjiman
London and Kendrick wins, giving them the #1 contender position for Tag Titles at Unforgiven
-Cody Rhodes and Micky James vs Daivari and Jillian Hall
The team of Rhoses and Mickey James won
-Triple H vs Carlito and Umaga
Carlito and Umaga are disqualified after double teaming Triple H passed the allowed time. Carlito then sets up Triple H to be hit by Umaga with a chair to his face, but he avoids it. Triple H then takes out Carlito, and hits Umaga with a chair several times, before switching to his SledgeHammer and finishiing Umaga (most likely Umaga's month absense will be attributed on-air to this attack as he was left bleeding)
-McMahon family intervention
All McMahons confront Vince, nearly convincing him to change (funny part was Vince's video trying to get Stephanie on to his side, which got swapped with a vid of Vince vs Steph, and Triple H being the cause). Mr. Kennedy comes out saying he's the son, but he's shot down by the true son's mother's lawyer and the McMahons are given a clue "Things are looking up"

Why can’t Mr. McMahon and Triple H just get along?

These two have been at each other’s throats on-and-off for eight years now. They have been allies and even in-laws. But for the most part, the Chairman and The Cerebral Assassin have been mortal enemies, playing a never-ending game of one-upmanship – with another round in their duel set to take place in a one-on-one match Monday on Raw.

But for those who dislike Cena, after yesterday's match with Mr. Kennedy, Cena tore his pect muscle and must be out for 6m to a Year
Therefore the WWE Title was vacated
At No Mercy this sunday, there will be a WWE Champ match and a new champ will be crowned
Now, since they've gone ahead and pushed him so much, it'll probably be Orton and someone

Tough break for Cena, its the same type of injury that Edge sustained in recent months.

They should take the top 4 contenders and make it a fatal 4 way match, at least make it a lil interesting than just practically "handing" the belt to Orton.

The Game had not only survived the Samoan Bulldozer, but he made his first successful defense of his newly-won WWE Championship – but just barely.

Guess WWE needed their go to guy as champ, since Cena's gonna be on the shelf for a year.

Edit:

Seems things have gone and changed again.
Orton was at first handed the title, then loses it to Triple H, who defened it against Umaga and won, then had to defend it again against Orton in a Last Man Standing match.

CHICAGO – History was truly made at No Mercy – over and over again. The WWE Title changed hands twice, and when the smoke cleared, Randy Orton was WWE Champion. (http://www.wwe.com/shows/nomercy/matches/5267288113112/results/)

STATEMENT FROM BOOKER T REGARDING WWE RELEASE
By: Bob Ryder
10/17/2007 7:50:12 AM    

Booker T and Sharmell posted a statement on their official website, BookerTOnline.com, regarding their release from WWE.

Here is the full statement:

We want to begin by thanking the many wonderful WWE fans that we have had the privilege of entertaining over the last eight years. Sharmell and I have enjoyed the opportunity to put smiles on your faces night after night. We also want to thank everyone in the wrestling community for their support of our very own P.W.A. (Pro Wrestling Alliance). The dream of bringing professional wrestling back to my home town of Houston, Texas is coming to fruition, and we have you to thank for it.

I want to address something that has been on my mind for quite some time now in regards to my recent suspension from WWE. I want to state for the record that I was not taking any illegal substance, or anything outside of my physician's care, and that the suspension was unwarranted. However, rather than fight the suspension or publicly voice my discontent, I used this recent hiatus to rest, work with the P.W.A., and reflect on the direction of my career as a professional wrestler. I also, for the record, have never at any time ordered anything from "Signature Pharmacy". This allegation is upsetting, and the careless and slanderous reporting of this matter is currently being addressed by my legal counsel.

I would like to also address any possible rumors or misinformation regarding our release from WWE. I had been unhappy for quite some time with the direction that the Company was going in. In fact, I asked for my release back in July for that very reason. However, after further contemplation, I decided to continue on with WWE because of my passion for this industry and my desire to entertain the fans. Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that my unhappiness with my work environment was beginning to take a great toll on other aspects of my life. I knew that it was time to make some extremely tough decisions. Therefore, in the interest of my mental, physical, and spiritual well being, I along with my wife, asked for our release from World Wrestling Entertainment for the second time within months. We were graciously granted our release and we have since amicably parted ways. While the business relationship between ourselves and the WWE has ended, we will continue to be involved in Professional Wrestling. We hope that our loyal fans will follow us as we make this transition.

Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts, and we will see you soon!

Booker T. and Sharmell

Christopher Daniels FIRED from TNA?! I hope this evolves in a storyline... IMPACT! was great as always ;> Lethal vs. Devine rocked. Since they got their 2h deal, TNA's been delivering awsome. I'm not crazy about WWE these days, but the 3h RAW was quite ok...  It's just that Austin pisses me off. Arrive, GET PAID, leave. They push too much (sometimes crappy) entertainment over wrestling (wich sux big time like 70%). At least Y2J is back, and he's great. Hope they have a decent match at Armageddon with Orton.

I wish Vince get's his head out of his arse and brings back RAW to the level it was 7 years ago. Right now TNA>WWE.

^^yeah it's been happening alot, i'm pretty sure it's cause the ECW brand is so weak they have no choice but to cross the the two brands, plus ECW being taped prior to the Smackdown event itself it's like killing 2 birds with one stone. I think they should just get rid of ECW in all. I mean it's not even the ECW most ECW fans remember, it's watered down and more like a minor league where they throw all the wrestlers who they have no idea what to do with in the main brands and the up and comers. Vince's ECW isn't even Extreme anymore. :(

Flair officially retired
Big farewell with Triple H, the original 4 horseman, Dean Malenko, Ricky Steamboat, Harley Race, Greg Valentine, Batista, Y2J, Cena, and Shawn
His family also came out
(Those entrances not in that order, cause Shawn was last)

The evening ended with all of the WWE Roster (ECW, RAW, Smackdown) coming down to thank Flair and showing their appreciation (Big Show was crying)
Entire arena's fans and all the superstars and officials joined together in a "Thank you Ric" chant

Also of note:
Orton retained at wrestlemania
Kane is new ECW champ
Undertaker is new World Heavyweight Champ
(the Smackdown/ECW double brand thing is ruled by the bros of destruction)
Obviously from my other statement, Shawn beat Flair
Batista beat Umaga
Beth and Melina beat Maria and Candice (Snoop KOed Santino and kissed Maria)
CM Punk is Mr. Money in the Bank (Matt Hardy comeback just as Jeff is suspended)
JBL beat Finlay

If I remember correctly, Hornswaggle was the last person to wear it. I'm pretty sure he had been put into another one of those "tough love" matches by Vince, and Finley helped him win. Don't remember if they did anything with it after that.

Couple of news tidbits. The second one is a particularly good read. :yep:

Coachman reportedly hired by ESPN
So now we know why Mick Foley replaced Jonathan Coachman as the color commentator on Smackdown, and it wasn’t solely because Coachman wasn’t any good. Coachman is leaving WWE to become an anchor at ESPN, according to a report on pwinsider.com.  (http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/sports/wrestling/blog/2008/05/coachman_to_espn.html)



Q&A with Scott Steiner
“Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner has never been one to hold back when he’s asked for his opinion on something or someone. During a telephone interview on Wednesday, Steiner discussed his stints in WWE and WCW, his near-death experience in Puerto Rico last year and what he thinks about Ric Flair, Triple H and Shawn Michaels.

He'll probably be a part of the upcoming draft. What I want to know is which brand he'll do good in. He was very underrated in the WWE during the Attitude era and that sucked. Hopefully this time around they'll give him a decent push towards anotehr title run. Oh and lets hope the walk and head shake disappear this time lol.

Demolition Draftin'

This Monday, on a special three-hour edition of Raw at 8/7 CT, every WWE Superstar, Diva, General Manager, commentator and ring announcer will be in attendance for the 2008 WWE Draft. The reason? Well, as Mr. McMahon bellowed just over three weeks ago, “It’s time to shake things up around here!”

Needless to say, this monumental event has created an explosive situation where anything can happen, and no one is exempt. Truly, it is the ultimate displacement of sports-entertainment. The fate of those from Raw, SmackDown and ECW alike are fair game, and the only way to describe the overall mood is that of nerve-racking trepidation, particularly since no one – not even those of us here at WWE.com – knows how things will play out this Monday night.

Let's hope Big Show wins this sunday cause that sucks that ECW no longer has a Heavyweight Champion. This draft isn't bad but still another draft afterwards like last year would be great.
Title: Re: Official Wrestling Thread "Finally ... a wrestling thread HAS COME BACK TO JPH!P!!!"
Post by: Roxasu on June 24, 2008, 05:30:13 AM
Lets see

Edge is prolly going to lose to Batista and the World Heavyweight Championship will move to RAW
Triple H will win and keep the WWE Championship at Smackdown!
Kane will lose to Big Show and Big Show will be "moved" to ECW
Matt Hardy and Chavo will keep feuding over at ECW

those are pretty much the set things since both Matt Hardy and Chavo are part of ECW now, ECW title needs to stay in ECW (unless the RAW/ECW pairing happens), Triple H isn't going to lose his title anytime soon (for known reasons), and Edge has been champ for a while now (IMO)
theres also rumors of ECW and RAW being paired, so Matt and Jeff might be split again

Well at least there's a supplemental draft that's gonna take place. So hopefully some mid card wrestlers will get drafted to better brands. I'm still hoping for guys like Elijah Burke, Super Crazy, Gregory Helms, MVP and Carlito to get moved to different brands so they can all get a  push.

Post by: LME on June 25, 2008, 07:43:37 PM
The supplemental draft is going on today.

A small list of who went where.

RAW drafted: Chuck Palumbo, Deuce, Jamie Noble.

ECW drafted: Super Crazy, Hornswoggle, Mark Henry.

SM drafted: DH Smith, Big Daddy V, Trevor Murdoch.

Not sure how long the supplemental draft is going on for today, but updates on who got drafted where can always checked out on the WWE site.

Well the draft is now over. At least it looks like it and I got my wish for at least two superstars in both Super Crazy to ECW and Carlito to Smackdown.

New additions to
Raw: Kofi Kingston, Layla and Matt Striker
Smackdown: Brian Kendrick, Maria, Shelton Benjamin and Carlito
ECW: Finlay

Not bad but lets hope these superstars and divas actually get pushes and not just job on another brand.

WWE MISSED THE BOAT WITH THE DRAFT
by Todd Oblak @ 2:37 PM on 6/27/2008
From pwinsiderxtra.com

What WWE missed out on in the Draft this year.....totally revamping the company.

First of all.....the WWE really does not need to continue the brand extensions in their current form (in my opinion). (http://www.pwinsiderxtra.com/ViewArticle.php?id=11090&p=1)

have to say Triple H will retain the title while Edge and Kane will lose(would be cool to see Edge and Triple H fight for both titles, since Raw has no big champion now)
Title: Re: Official Wrestling Thread "Finally ... a wrestling thread HAS COME BACK TO JPH!P!!!"
Post by: LME on June 30, 2008, 07:43:08 PM
I had just remembered about the ppv that when on last night, so I went to check out the WWE site to see how it went down.

HHH beat Cena.
Edge beat Batista.
Mark Henry beat both Big Show and Kane, and is the new ECW champ.
Matt Hardy beat Chavo.
Kofi Kingston beat Y2J, is now the new IC champ.
Morrison and Miz beat Finlay and Hornswoggle.
Mickie James beat Katie Lea Burchill.
Cody Rhodes turned on Hardcore Holly, was actually Ted DiBiase's mystery partner, and they both won the tag titles.


RAW doesn't have a champion now, so that's a definite change, for a brand to not have a champion.
Smackdown now has both the WWE champ and the World Heavyweight champ.
ECW still has their champ, since Mark Henry was drafted to ECW and won the title last night.

"Night Of Champions" was awesome. I'm surprised that 3 New Champs were crowned..............well 2 1/2 since Rhodes regained his other half of the World Tag Titles. Kingston winning the Intercontinental Championship was awesome both he and Jericho pulled off an awesome match. If anything most likely CM Punk will challenge Edge and take the World Heavyweight Title from him back to Raw. But as it looks Kofi is the top superstar on Raw being that he's the only one on Raw with a singles title.

O, so Raw has no champ at all now?  Wow. I remember when Smackdown had no Heavyweight/WWE champion. and then they did a tournament, where JBL won, but then he didn't get a new belt because Batista (champ at the time) came and there was no need for it.

Yeah I remember that. He was gonna be the New "Smackdown" Champion but yeah Batista getting drafted ruined that. But yeah Kofi Kingston is the top superstar on Raw since he holds the only singles championship while ECW has it's title back along with the US title and Smackdown has both World Champions on it.

You could just see how this was gonna play out, it was just far too transparent a setup after the Night of Champions ppv.
With Edge coming out, then Batista beating him down, only to have CM Punk cash in and win the title... I can only chuckle at all that. :lol:

I was thinking Punk was gonna cash in MITB right after Triple H's defense. I mean Night of Champions ended rather early so I figured with Triple H tired from defending it against Cena. Punk was gonna make good on his promise and cash it in asap. Oh well he's now the champ and now Raw has the World Title again..............................now Rey Mysterio can take it from him once he gets a title shot.

Around the time of the draft Smackdown only had one champion. And last year they dismissed the Cruiserweight Title. So basically Vickie decided to give the divas of smackdown a belt to fight for. Which is good otherwise they're just wasting space on Smackdown. So Raw has the "Womens" Title while Smackdown has the new "Divas" title

From WWE.com

Randy Orton involved in motorcycle accident



Randy Orton was recently involved in a motorcycle accident with a car near his home. He was thrown off his bike 30 feet, resulting in him re-breaking his collarbone. Orton initially injured his collarbone last June at One Night Stand during his Last Man Standing Match with Triple H for the WWE Championship.

The injury he sustained from the crash will keep Orton out of action for an additional three months.

WWE News: Kenny Dykstra issues statement following release; says he's happy to be gone

Kenny Dykstra (Ken Doane) was released from WWE earlier this week. Now he says he finally feels free after spending six years with WWE.

"Believe it or not I actually am happy to be gone from WWE," Dykstra said on his myspace page. "I don't have to do things around their schedule and I don't have to answer to anybody."

Doane says being with WWE since he was 16 years old created a situation where the only thing he knew in life was WWE. "I did have fun with WWE but the creative side never used me properly or really gave me an opportunity to get over," he said.

He isn't sure whether he will stick to wrestling, although he'll use the 90-day no-compete clause in his contract release to consider his options.

"WWE kinda puts a bad taste in your mouth after all the politics and garbage that can go on," Doane said. "I may try to go to TNA but we will see."


From PWTorch (http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/WWE_News_3/article_27896.shtml)

Interview with WWE's Ken Kennedy

It has been an interesting four years for Mr. Kennedy so far with the WWE, filled with plenty of highs and lows.  Just last year, he won the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 23 and seemed poised to become the WWE Champion, only to have that opportunity slip away after he injured his triceps muscle.

He has bounced back and forth between being a heel and a babyface and wrestling near the bottom of the card to feuding with top guys such as The Undertaker and Shawn MIchaels.  Unfortunately for him, he has also been hit with three major injuries during his relatively short time with the WWE and is currently sidelined with a dislocated shoulder.

Follow-up! Definitely looks like JBL brought it on himself.

More notes on the incident between Joey Styles and JBL     
» Reported by Adam Martin of WrestleView.com
» On Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 5:39 PM EST

A few more details have been released regarding the "Iraq Punchout" (as it has been termed) between Joey Styles and JBL last week in Iraq. Many have described the situation as typical JBL bullying of a guy he saw as a nerdy type and doing his best to make fun of him. It was JBL, who has a reputation for being a tough guy and street fighter, that many younger wrestlers feel they have to endure as they fear retaliating will cost them their job.

alright i went to the houseshow on friday and it was pretty nuts. even though my seat was 4th row in the front, it was at a corner, so i always get obstructed by rednecks. but i got some good shots of hornswoggle and randy though cuz me and my friends just run up near the crappy fence separating the seats and the ring. will upload some later

highlights of the night was john morrison when a fan was like "JOHN MORRISON YOU SUCK!" and morison turns around and was like "I DONT SUCK!" LOLOL

and everyone started cheering for Santino cornering beth pheonix. He was awesome! Kelly Kelly was smokiiinnnnn' :jerk: Charlie Haas was wrestling too with a long wig. Looked like Bret Hart LOL. Also everyone started cheering Y2J! and jericho was trying to play that he hates Canada and was forced to live there trying to be heel. but we still cheered for him LOL. I got a video of his whole speech i might upload it later.

and then this happened in Victoria houseshow. the story is that the bf/gf stopped right in front of y2j's car and started spitting on his car and the chick started spitting at jericho, y2k got pissed at beat the shit outta the girl and her BF. LOL some crowd cheered for y2j at the end as well!! LOLOLOL

I don't know anyone who WOULDN'T come out and kick your ass if you started spitting at them.  I don't blame Y2J at all.  That douchebag screaming at him needs to realize that ... brace yourselves for this one, cuz SPOILER ALERT, wrestling is prechoreographed!!  The outcomes are predetermined, and the story lines are written by some schmuck.  Once he gets that, he won't look like this loser here.

Former WWE superstar and NAIA national wrestling champion Bobby Lashley will compete in his second pro fight against one of MMA's early ancestors, Ken Shamrock on March 21 in Pensacola, Fla., according to reports.

At 32, Lashley is 13 years younger than the UFC Hall of Famer.

Breaking: Major WWE Departure, Final Appearance This Friday
by Wz Bill Behrens
Mar 31, 2009


PWINsider.com and others are reporting that Jim Ross' WWE Smackdown broadcast partner Taz is done with the company, and that yesterdays tapings were his last.   His contract is reported to be expiring soon.

Taz, real name Peter Senerchia, started with WWE in 2000 as a wrestler but soon moved to announcing first on Sunday Night Heat, then Smackdown before eventually moving to ECW with Joey Styles, then back to Smackdown.

I like to think this years WM is gonna be ok. The only thing I'm looking forward to is MITB and Tag Title Lumberjack match everything else isn't as appealing. I also wonder if tonight JBL is gonna retire with the IC titls assuming he retains tonight cause that's the rumor going around.

Does anyone have this song, or know which version it is?
Great Muta/Keiji Mutoh tribute (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NLNRlmT6HM#hq)
I've found a couple other of his theme songs, but none of them have been the same ones.

Funny thing about Mutoh, I had never seen much of him until a few weeks ago (Saw one tag match from NOAH in 2007), but years ago in the third or fourth Smackdown game, I made a guy just like him. He was a Mexican wrestler named Pesadilla. He was a smaller guy, but had red face paint with a crazy black design and matching clothes. Mutoh's taunt, handspring body splash to bulldog, poison mist, elbow drop, moonsault, and Shining Wizard were all moves I gave to my guy. I was shocked to see I basically made this guy without any idea of who Mutoh is.


Edit: I found it. MadSplash. com has a bunch of Japanese pro wrestling themes from NJPW, FMW, Zero-1, NOAH, Michinoku Pro, and a few others.

Wow all 3 world titles changed hands @Backlash. Not too thrilled that Edge is WHC again but at least he takes the belt away from Cena and he brings it back to Smackdown. I'm really glad Christian is ECW Champion even though that title isn't really considered a world title anymore. Idk Backlash was ok hopefully cause of this draft better feuds will start soon.

Well, I'm personally not really surprised considering he injured himself AGAIN during his latest comeback (which some online rumours say was due to Orton deliberately messing up a move because he doesn't like Kennedy). Guess they finally had enough with having to pay him for staying at home due to his being so accident prone.

Checking the WWE site for the results from last nights ppv, and 4 titles changed hands.

Batista beat Orton
Jericho Beat Mysterio
Dreamer won in his triple threat
Hardy beat Edge, then Punk cashed in his MItB and beat Hardy
Cena beat Big Show
Kingston held on to his title

Reading on PWTorch (http://www.pwtorch.com/), and finding out that Jeff Hardy got injured twice during his ladder match with Edge, and that Batista also has had another bicep injury, which will require surgery, just before last nights ppv.

So, having Punk cash in his MitB to win the title last night at least gives SD a champion until they decide on someone else to have it.
His new title reign just might be as short lived as his other one was. XD

Well, in answer to that, there's a title match on RAW tonight now, and after the opening of the show it does look like it's gonna be Orton again... unless there's a swerve that's gonna be thrown in.

And next week, RAW's gonna be 3 hrs long, with all 3 brands on deck, and all 3 champ titles on the line.

RIP Mitsuharu Misawa, Japanese Legend

Quote
On June 13, 2009, Misawa teamed with Go Shiozaki against Akitoshi Saito and Bison Smith at Hiroshima Green Arena. After taking a belly to back suplex from Saito, Misawa lost consciousness and was taken to a hospital. He was pronounced dead in the hospital at 10:10 p.m. JST due to spinal damage

There are many youtube vids about this but this better illustrates what happened.

Spinal injury leading to death.  Benoit, now Misawa, have died as a consequence of wrestling in a style that I love.

WWE/TNA News: Mick Foley describes his real disappointment with how he left WWE

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

PWTorch.com (http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/WWE_News_3/article_33621.shtml)

TNA wrestler Mick Foley makes it sound like his real disappointment with the end of his WWE career this time last year was WWE not offering him another position in the company besides color commentator. Foley says they didn't put forth much effort to prevent his contract from simply running out.

Foley's contract expired at the beginning of September, but WWE did not approach him to work in a separate division, such as WWE developmental or as an international marketing representative. They knew he was unhappy with color commentary on Smackdown, but didn't make the effort to keep him around, Foley says.

"At no time during those last two months did anyone ever approach me about working developmental or overseas marketing," Foley said on Between the Ropes radio last night.

Foley said he doesn't have much of a relationship with WWE right now. BTR co-host D-Lo Brown asked him what kind of terms he's on with WWE and Vince McMahon. "Who knows," Foley said matter-of-factly.

Foley added: "My last conversation with Vince (from 2008) was actually a very good talk. And then I heard he went later that day and pulled me from two video games," Foley said. "I really saw that as a flattering gesture. Two different people told me they got calls to enhance their contracts."

Foley might not have enjoyed the color commentary position on Smackdown with Vince McMahon in his ear shouting instructions, but he says one of the most enjoyable moments of the end of his WWE run was interacting with Edge building up to Edge's Summerslam match against The Undertaker.

"When I was in WWE and did the last thing in the ring with Edge, my last time in WWE was one of my best times," Foley said. "It had been really two years since I cut a real promo."

The Big Show comes home

By RACHEL JOHNSON

from AikenStandard.com

WWE Raw SummerSlam is bringing more than mayhem to Aiken on Saturday. It is bringing the Big Show home.

Paul Wight, known in the ring as the Big Show, grew up playing basketball and soccer in Aiken while attending Millbrook Elementary School. Having reached 6-foot-2 by the age of 12, the Big Show frequently turned heads and made news in town, becoming the 1998 WLTX Athlete of the Year.

Wight was a star basketball player at W. Wyman King Academy in Batesburg-Leesvile. He left Aiken chasing his dreams of athletic greatness, and after a chance meeting with Danny Bonaduce and Hulk Hogan, he has become a household name for WWE fans.

On Thursday, the Aiken Standard spent a few minutes on the phone reminiscing with the Big Show as he prepares to bring the action to Saturday's WWE Raw SummerSlam event at the USC Aiken Convocation Center. (http://www.aikenstandard.com/Local/0717Show)

WWE News: Torrie Wilson and Nick Mitchell profiled on local TV, Mitchell talks negatively about WWE

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

PWTorch.com (http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/Other_News_4/article_33699.shtml)

Former WWE wrestler Nick Mitchell and his girlfriend, former WWE diva Torrie Wilson, were profiled during a sports segment on ABC Ch. 13 in Houston during the evening news on Friday.

Mitchell was shown training for MMA at a local boxing gym and he talked negatively about his WWE experience.

Mitchell, who had the "stain" of being a Tough Enough contestant and was part of the Spirit Squad group in 2006, says politics held him down, especially because he ended up with Torrie Wilson.

"There's a lot of politics in WWE. I was a young, fresh meat WWE guy who 'didn't deserve' the most beautiful diva," Mitchell told ABC's Tim Melton in-between camera shots of him training.

Torrie was shown walking through their "Jaded" clothing store in The Woodlands, which is north of Houston. Torrie says she's done with wrestling.

"Professional wrestling is behind me. I had back surgery last June," Torrie said in a brief soundbyte.

Mitchell also said he's healthier now training for MMA than when he was in WWE. "52 weeks a year, you never get a break. It's a lot tougher than people know," he said.

Mitchell listed his injuries during his WWE career: "Blew a disc in my neck. Blew a knee out. I broke a nose three times in about one month."

TNA News: Christopher Daniels interview - previews tonight's PPV match vs. Matt Morgan, talks injuries, criticizes WWE

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

PWTorch.com (http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/TNA_News_1/article_33719.shtml)

Christopher Daniels says there's a fanbase of pro wrestling fans who are "fed up with WWE" and seek out TNA as an alternative for their pro wrestling action. Daniels pointed to the X Division as TNA's key alternative.

"I feel like there's a fanbase out there that is a little bit fed up and a little bit disenchanted with what WWE is doing and they're looking for an alternative," Daniels said on KPUG 1170 AM this week to promote tonight's Victory Road PPV. "One of those alternatives to WWE has been our X Division."

Daniels said the X Division wrestlers wrestle without "any handcuffs or limitations" every night and try to give wrestling fans athleticism he believes they're looking for. Of course, Daniels made these comment right before the first-ever monthly PPV not to feature an X Division match.

"There is a market for that (X Division wrestling). I think WWE has ignored that market for a long time," he said. "That's fallen by the wayside in WWE's eyes. I feel that TNA has stepped up and made that available to wrestling fans."

Daniels also talked up his match against Matt Morgan at tonight's PPV. He said he's going to employ the classic small man vs. big man strategy of chopping him down to the mat to level the height difference for their match. Daniels was complementary of Morgan as a future star in wrestling.

"Matt Morgan has been touted as one of the future stars of this sport for a long time now. He's a lot bigger and stronger than me," Daniels said. "Probably the biggest guy I've had a singles match against him in many, many years."

Daniels was asked if he typically watches other matches before or after his own match on a PPV. Daniels said he is usually too focused on his own match to watch other colleagues, but he buys the PPVs at home to watch his friends in TNA while also continuing to study wrestling.

"It's real hard to take focus away from what I've got going on," Daniels said. "I pay for PPVs at home and watch the tape after. I try to pay attention to the matches my friends are in and support them. It's hard to be a student of the game without watching other things.

Daniels suffered a knee injury at last weekend's house show tour and did not wrestle at last night's house show in North Carolina to rest up for tonight's PPV match against Morgan. Daniels talked vaguely about his current injuries in the interview.

"It can be a grind. I've woken up very sore and in pain," Daniels said about general injuries during his wrestling career. "To this day, I still have aches and pains that I'm dealing with."

TNA News: Developing story - Jeff Jarrett not at Victory Road PPV, taken off TV "indefinitely"

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

PWTorch.com (http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/TNA_News_1/article_33742.shtml)

TNA wrestler/executive Jeff Jarrett was reportedly not at the TNA Victory Road PPV last night. The official word given to the TNA wrestlers was that Jarrett "took some time off" for personal reasons.

Jarrett has also been pulled from TV "indefinitely" after going home to be away from the TNA product. It's unlikely that he will be at the Impact tapings today and perhaps the rest of the week through Wednesday.

The timing of Jarrett's leave of absence comes a few days after a person claiming to be a former TNA employee called into the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show and said Karen Angle and her kids moved into Jarrett's home in Nashville.

The caller also claimed that TNA president Dixie Carter was upset with Jeff Jarrett when she heard about Jeff and Karen living together. Jason Powell at prowrestling.net reports that Karen's ex-husband, TNA World champ Kurt Angle, is upset with Jarrett for trying to take creative control of TNA.

WWE News: TMZ randomly mocks Batista's belly tattoo and "beach attire"

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

TMZ published a "guess who?" photo on the front page of their website linking to a photo of WWE star Batista walking on the beach in a Speedo. The "story" rips Batista for a variety of reasons.

The headline references Batista having a "girly tattoo," the caption says there's "Nothing's scarier than a man with a reverse tramp stamp," and another comment in the article says he's "man-pantied."

The photo isn't dated, but TMZ says it was shot on South Beach in Miami. Batista is currently injured and off WWE TV with a biceps tear.

WWE News: Trish Stratus producing fitness/yoga DVDs, says she waited until WWE "didn't own her soul"

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Former WWE diva Trish Stratus recently appeared on BiteTV's "The Surf" show in Canada to talk about her post-WWE adventures and upcoming line of fitness/yoga DVDs.

Trish was a fitness model before WWE signed her to a contract in the late '90s. A decade later, she's free to produce her own line of products without WWE calling the shots. Well, she put it a bit differently.

"Since my background came from the fitness industry, people said, 'When are you going to do a video?' It just wasn't the right time or...my soul was owned by WWE or whatever," Trish said wryly. "So, there was not an opportune time to these videos."

The clip of Trish's "WWE owned my soul" line is at the 3:30 mark in the "After Show" video below. The second video below is the full 40-minute episode of Stratus on "The Surf" with clips of her sky-diving and doing a Jeff Hardy Swanton Bomb, as she described it.

WWE News: C.M. Punk interviewed on heel turn; most-satisfying time of his career, great line about Jeff Hardy's potential last match at PPV

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE World Hvt. champion C.M. Punk argues that WWE fans turned him heel in his current storyline feud against Jeff Hardy. He says he's enjoying playing the tweener role on Smackdown because it's a change of pace from playing a strict babyface for three years.

"It's not me who has changed, it's kind of the fans this time," Punk told Chris Smith of the "Ringside blog" of The Mirror newspaper in the U.K. "I actually think where I am now is interesting, so it gives people something to think about. Instead of just cheering or booing, and thinking of someone as a good guy or a bad guy, it's so boring."

Punk says he's excited just to bring back the old-school heel Punk character from his Ring of Honor career. He says there's an entirely new audience to get a reaction out of.

"There's a billion people out there who have never seen the old C.M. Punk so it's exciting again," Punk said. "I'm the kinda guy who gets bored real easy so it's great to do something a little different to what I've been doing for the last three years."

Punk said that at the end of the day, he's never been more satisfied professionally than right now as World champ in WWE. "It's cool to be recognized in this manner by the top company in the world," he said.

Going into the Night of Champions PPV this Sunday, there are questions regarding Jeff Hardy's future in WWE. Hardy's contract expires around the end of the month and there are no indications that Hardy has re-signed with WWE.

Punk was asked what he thinks about facing Hardy in potentially his final match in WWE. Punk answered with a great line about his character's goal in the match.

"I don't know what his contractual status is, but if it's going to be Jeff Hardy's last pay-per-view it's probably because I'm gonna kick his ass that bad," Punk said in-character. "If he comes back, it's awesome, but if not I move onto the next guy."

CALDWELL'S POLL ANALYSIS: Who should replace Jeff Jarrett as head booker if he's ousted from TNA?

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

TNA IN TURMOIL POLL: If Jeff Jarrett were removed by Dixie Carter as head of creative (booking), who would you most like to see replace him? Earlier this week, Paul Heyman ran away with the vote on who Torch readers would like to see head up TNA's creative effort if Jeff Jarrett is removed from power.

Heyman took 55 percent of our poll. He was clearly the majority vote-recipient, as his name has been in the news this week and he's been out of the wrestling business long enough to take a "look at the forest" without being inside the trees dealing with politics, creative headaches, deadlines, etc.

Heyman said he would "never" take the position, but Torch readers clearly believe he can take a roster full of dated WWE, WCW, and ECW wrestlers, plus a crop of young talent with untapped potential in TNA and turn the ship around after a disastrous Victory Road PPV.

Since Heyman is virtually out of the mix, let's turn to the second-most vote recipient. That is Jim Cornette, who received 19 percent of the vote. Cornette falls into that Eric Bischoff character of either being all the way in as head booker or not at all.

Cornette has been on-air authority figure in TNA for a few years and gives creative input from time-to-time, but has not been given an official booking role in TNA. The mean reason is that he would be butt heads with Vince Russo, who has a different vision of the TNA product than Cornette would in a head role. Cornette seems unlikely unless the entire booking team was scrapped and Cornette was given complete control.

So, who else do we have? Gabe Sapolsky came in third with eight percent of the vote. That's unlikely, as Sapolsky has many projects on his table, including VP/head booker for the DGUSA promotion debuting on Saturday.

Torch readers went next with "Other," which received six percent of the vote. When the top three potential bookers to replace Jeff Jarrett are highly unlikely candidates, you're left with "other."

"Other" would most-likely be Matt Conway, who is a relatively unknown TNA employee to the majority of wrestling fans. Matt is in charge of the TNA Home Video department and has been a creative consultant to Dutch Mantell and Vince Russo. Conway would be a likely choice to replace Jarrett, but Matt isn't a very "sexy" choice when readers are looking for something new and drastic to occur.

Is Kurt Angle the answer? More Torch readers picked Russo (5 percent) over Angle (4 percent), perhaps because Angle has zero experience booking pro wrestling. Angle has made a power play to take control creatively, but it would be a major risk for TNA to give creative control to Angle, who is unproven, has political cronies, and is still the company champion to where he can't make decisions without bias factoring in.

TNA doesn't have many "sexy" options who are available for the role if Jarrett is ousted. It will be interesting to see how things shake up or if they shake up at all.


Top Vote Recipients
Paul Heyman ... 55 percent
Jim Cornette ... 19 percent
Gabe Sapolsky ... 8 percent
"Someone Else" ... 6 percent
Vince Russo ... 5 percent
Kurt Angle ... 4 percent

TNA News: A.J. Styles injured, Update on Elijah Burke in TNA

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

TNA star A.J. Styles has a staph infection in his leg, according to TNA announcer Jeremy Borash. Styles will be "out of action for the time being."

TNA has the next three weeks of Impact TV already recorded leading to the Hard Justice PPV in August. TNA's next house show tour is August 7-9 in two weekends, which would be enough time to heal depending on the severity of the staph infection.

Staph infections generally heal as soon as two weeks or as long as three months, which was the case with Kevin Nash when he suffered an infection in January and didn't wrestle again until April.

Styles is being advertised to wrestle on TNA's next house show, which is August 7 in Biloxi, Miss. That is subject to change.

-- Former WWE wrestler Elijah Burke will reportedly not join TNA Wrestling... at least not as "Elijah Burke."

"'Elijah Burke' will not be in TNA," Jeremy Borash said on Twitter. Burke could be brought in under a different gimmick, as is often the case in TNA.

TNA wrestler A.J. Styles isn't expected to miss any wrestling action for TNA after suffering a staph infection last week.

Styles was reportedly "feeling much better" this morning, according to Jeremy Borash. TNA doesn't have another house show for two weekends, which should be enough time to recover.

According to Borash, Styles told him over the phone: "Aside from the hole in my leg, I'm feeling much better." Styles is scheduled for a doctor's appointment today to follow-up on the infection.

After WWE Raw went off the air last night, Triple H was given a birthday bash of sorts by WWE chairman Vince McMahon, Big Show, and Batista since they were in Batista's hometown of Washington, D.C.

Video from ringside shows McMahon trying to roughhouse with Hunter as if he was five years old. McMahon also threw cake around in the ring. Highlight of the "birthday bash" was probably an awkward hug between Mark Henry and McMahon on the floor outside the ring.

WWE News: C.M. Punk says WWE does not have competition, Punk still confused on Mr. Kennedy's release

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Former WWE World Hvt. champion C.M. Punk told the U.K. Sun that he's happy in WWE because there isn't another company to work for in the U.S. if a wrestler wants to be viewed as the best in the industry.

"No, I'd not jump ship, this is the place to be, nowhere comes close and I'm happy here," Punk said. "We don't really have any competition and if you want to be a top class professional wrestler in the US you have to be working for the WWE."

Punk was asked several times about TNA in the interview, but Punk gave the politically correct answers on being in the best position of his career in WWE right now.

Punk claimed he doesn't get involved in backstage politics, leading to him saying he's still confused about Mr. Kennedy's release from the company almost exactly two months ago.

"I was confused when Ken got let go, I'm unsure if it was down to his injuries or what," Punk said. "Umaga's the same and I really don't know why they were let go. It's a personal thing and I don't like to ask things like that, I'm not a gossipy guy, so it's nothing I really get involved in at all."

Punk was also interviewed about injuries, Misawa's death, who he wants to work with on Smackdown, and which TNA wrestlers he hangs out with.

WWE News: Mr. Kennedy says he screwed himself in WWE, not Vince McMahon or the company

Former WWE wrestler Mr. Kennedy says he screwed himself, not WWE or Vince McMahon, which contributed to his release. Kennedy said this in a blog post to coincide with the release of his weekly video blog.

Kennedy said his mistake was opening his mouth in interviews with the press instead of declining to answer questions. He was obviously referring to a series of interviews with the U.K. Sun where he was deceitful about steroid use in one interview, then talked openly about using steroids in his past during a second interview.

The second interview, which came right before WrestleMania 25, got him in hot water with management that added to the list of reasons WWE was not pleased with him.

"That mistake set in motion a chain of events that allowed my detractors, both inside the company and outside, to jump all over me. I left myself open," Kennedy said in his Crave Online blog. "Vince McMahon didn't screw 'Mr. Kennedy.' WWE didn't screw 'Mr. Kennedy.' Ken Anderson screwed 'Mr. Kennedy.'"

Kennedy said he got caught up in the "WWE lifestyle" and became intoxicated with his position of being a star for the major leagues of pro wrestling. He said he wasn't "savvy enough" to handle the pressure of representing the company.

"I admit that I just wasn't media savvy enough at the time to deal with all that comes with the responsibility of talking to the press," he said. "I said some very sophomoric things and that mistake was mine and mine alone, and I have learned from it."

WWE News: WWE releases wrestler who appeared on Monday night's Raw

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE announced the release of The Brian Kendrick from his WWE contract today.

Kendrick was involved in a program with Jerry Lawler the past two weeks on Raw, including a nine second loss to Kofi Kingston on this week's episode.


Caldwell's Analysis: Not surprising to hear he was let go, but it's certainly disappointing because WWE did not take advantage of his ability on the Raw brand after he was drafted from Smackdown. Kendrick was essentially used to get over Ezekiel Jackson on Smackdown, then WWE didn't give him much to work with on Raw. Perhaps there's another back-story to this we don't have information on right now, but the story here is a lost opportunity to elevate a fresh talent.

WWE News: Jeremy Piven has negative reputation in WWE even before guest-hosting Raw

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE announcer Jim Ross says he's heard that next week's Raw guest host, Jeremy Piven, has created a perception that he has an "attitude" about using WWE to promote his movie and he may not be fully engaged in the guest hosting role.

"The 'Entourage' star and the star of an upcoming film that actually looks very funny is reportedly somewhat attitudinal," Ross said on jrsbarbq.com.

Ross added that he'll be looking to see if Piven is looking to" simply promote his newest project" or if he will be genuinely interested in taking part in the show like Shaq appeared to be on the July 27 show.

It could be a good thing Piven is coming to WWE with the perception of having an attitude, as it could translate on-camera. Piven could a heel guest host to change the tone of the show from the babyface-dominated Raws the past few weeks.

Ross says Piven would have been set-up for backstage practical jokes in an old-school wrestling environment, but that probably won't be happening in the corporate-friendly WWE locker room.

"In the old days many of the veterans would have clamored to see who could play the biggest rib on Piven or any other 'celebrity' who came into the locker room area and acted any thing less than respectful to the biz," Ross said.

WWE News: Former WWE wrestler with "three strikes" from Wellness Policy returns at house show

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Former WWE wrestler Eugene (Nick Dinsmore) returned to WWE at last night's Smackdown/ECW house show in New Hampshire. Eugene was fired on September 1, 2007 for reportedly receiving a "third strike" from WWE's Wellness Policy.

Eugene wrestled against Ricky Ortiz in the third match of last night's house show. Eugene is expected to feud against Ortiz when he returns to TV on the Smackdown brand. He is rumored to make a return on the August 7 Smackdown.

WWE also brought back Chris Masters on last week's WWE Raw. Masters has "two strikes" from WWE's Wellness Policy.

According to official documents we obtained earlier this year, WWE fired Eugene for his third failed Wellness test. Masters left the company after his second Wellness violation two months after Eugene was fired.

Other News: Jesse Ventura's new TV series greenlighted for first season

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

A new TV series starring former WWE wrestler/announcer Jesse Ventura has been picked up by TruTV (formerly Court TV). Ventura filmed pilot episodes that TruTV recently presented to advertising companies, who gave positive feedback on the series.

After the positive feedback, TruTV ordered an entire first series for Ventura's show, titled "Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura." The show will premiere in late 2009.

"We received a very positive response when we showed a preview of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura at this year's advertising upfront presentation, so it's very exciting to be able to greenlight it for a full series," said Marc Juris, executive VP of TruTV.

WWE News: Jim Ross lets fly with critiques, criticisms, questions about current WWE product including The Miz's storyline on Raw

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE Smackdown announcer Jim Ross returned home to Oklahoma from the Smackdown TV taping in New York with several direct critiques, criticisms, and points to make about the current WWE TV product on his jrsbarbq.com blog (http://www.jrsbarbq.com/blog/jrs-back-long-island-challenging-tapingwrestling-love-stories-are-generally-insane). Ross also said he's working on some new "huge" features for his jrsbarbq.com online store (http://www.jrsbarbq.com/store) that will be announced soon.

-- On the Smackdown TV taping: "It was one of those nights where nothing seem to come easy at the announce desk, not that it really seems to matter I suppose."

-- (Rey) Mysterio is a one of a kind competitor and I hope that some day the powers that be see that Rey vs. Tyson Kidd and Rey vs. Evan Bourne would be matches fans would love to emotionally invest.

-- On top match-ups seemingly being on repeat: "Goodness knows that wrestling fans in general are rapidly growing tired of seeing many of their favorites competing/performing with the same suspects week in and week out. Sometimes new bouts will suck but sometimes they won't but at least it will be something different. Isn't different still a good thing?"

-- On the four-way #1 contender match to the Intercontinental Title booked for Friday's Smackdown episode: "It was physical but it seemed it lack 'something;' that is one of those intangible things and there is a good chance that I could be wrong and the match seemed to rush along too fast."

-- On The Miz being booted from Raw: "What in the hell is up with Miz. I honestly felt that Miz had 'something' going for him but obviously folks MUCH smarter than I apparently see Miz's persona differently. Some day Miz could end up on SD as Todd Grisham could use a young, hip color commentator and Miz is very glib and topical."

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor


WWE CEO Linda McMahon has resigned from her position as chief executive officer to officially run for U.S. Senate in Connecticut next year. Vince McMahon will take over her duties as company CEO.

Linda McMahon officially announced her decision to run for government office on Wednesday. She will be contending against three other Republican candidates to run against current Democratic senator Christopher Dodd in 2010.

McMahon attacked Dobbs and the Washington political scene during her official announcement, which the AP covered. She said Washington is "out of control" and Dodd has "lost his way and our trust."

WWE News: Bret Hart reportedly interested in returning to WWE TV; Hart would be contradicting himself

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart is reportedly interested in returning to WWE TV as an on-air authority figure character, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. WWE reportedly created the Montreal Screwjob storyline to re-introduce Hart if he agrees to return.

Hart returning to WWE TV as a regular character would contradict a definitive statement he made earlier this year. In February, Hart said he had no interest in ever working for WWE again as a regular character. He said he didn't want to be in a position to collect a paycheck from Vince McMahon again.

"I try to cooperate with them when I can, I think its good to be on better terms with them (WWE), but I have no plans at all to appear on any TV show or pay per view for them, ever," Hart said on the Blog Talk Radio show in February. "I don’t ever want to be in a position where I have to work and actually expect to make a check from them or contract."

One of the key questions if Hart were to return would be whether he can cooperate with Shawn Michaels. Michaels is on the Raw brand and it appears Hart would join the Smackdown brand where WWE re-created the Montreal Screwjob storyline. Hart said in the same interview he would at least talk to Michaels.

"I'm at that stage in my life where I'd probably hear him out maybe, I don't know," Hart said on Blog Talk Radio. "Sometimes you're better off, you don't want to be carrying around a lot anguish, you know, bitterness or anything. Sometimes you're better off letting it go ... I just kind of prefer to stay away from it."

An "Old Friend" pays a visit...
Tue, 10/20/2009 - 11:55am — J.R.
Posted in: Personal

It was an interesting plane ride from OKC to Columbia, South Carolina Monday night. On my flight from OKC to Atlanta I had my 3rd Bells palsy attack.

I was able to reach WWE doctors who were in Jacksonville for Raw and they were able to call in the medicines I needed to get started on to slow down the paralysis. Now we just wait and see how the meds work and Mother Nature takes her course.

My plans are to tape SD tonite working with the King and perhaps even Michael Cole so we can make sure we can do the job that the product and the talents deserve.

It's a big week for WWE as we all prepare for Bragging Rights this Sunday in Pittsburgh. I hope to be able to contribute and time will tell as the week progresses but  I intend to remain optimistic and to fight thru this issue.

This isn't my first challenge I've had to deal with and there are lots of folks that have much worse issues than do I that they contend with on a daily basis. My intention is to fight thru this and continue doing what I love.

The wrestling business and those that work in it have become such a huge part of my life and the way I see it this is just another bump in the road as I am far from "tapping out."

With all the fans that have always supported me thru 35 years, I know I won't be going thru this alone. Thanks.

Plans Have Changed
Tue, 10/20/2009 - 1:06pm — J.R.
Posted in: Personal

This is an update on my previous blog. Not the news I wanted to share.

It has been decided that I should not risk further issues by working tonight and I am in the process of arranging a flight back to OKC so I can see a neurologist on Wednesday.

Life is about facing the challenges we encounter so I am going to do all I can to get better and back at the announce desk asap. I wish I had more answers but I simply don't at this time.

I want to be a part of Bragging Rights but only time will tell if that will be physically possible. My passion and love for the game is in tact but I have to do what's best for my long term health.

WWE has been tremendously supportive of my situatiion of which I am very grateful.

Never count me out of the game as this isn't the first mountain that I have had to climb. Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole will handle SD from Columbia. My thanks to every one for understanding this matter. Better days are on the horizon.

“Hulkamania” is back! The biggest name in professional wrestling history, Hulk Hogan, is joining Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling (TNA), the fastest rising wrestling organization in the world and home to one of cable television’s highest rated shows for young men, TNA iMPACT!  The announcement was made today by TNA Wrestling in conjunction with Spike TV at a press conference held in New York City.

“Hulk Hogan is one of the world’s top pop culture icons and the biggest superstar in the history of professional wrestling.  We are truly excited to welcome him into the TNA family,” said Dixie Carter, President of TNA Wrestling.  “Our goal is to become the world’s biggest professional wrestling company.  Hulk defines professional wrestling and we look forward to partnering with him in a variety of ways as we continue to grow TNA globally.”

“I’m thrilled to be jumping back into the world of professional wrestling,” said Hogan.  “My fans have been asking me to return to the business for many years on a full time basis, but the timing or the opportunity has never been right until now.  TNA Wrestling is a great company with an already excellent fan base, business and broadcast partner.  I firmly believe now is the time for some change at TNA as they are positioned to jump to the next level in their development and I’m here to work with Dixie to help make that a reality.”

Through Hogan’s partnership with Bischoff Hervey Entertainment Television, the deal with TNA was negotiated by longtime Hogan colleague Eric Bischoff.  Additionally, BHE TV has inked a first-look deal with TNA and will be working with the organization to develop new programming extensions of the TNA brand.

“Hulk Hogan adds yet another level of star power that positions TNA iMPACT as Spike TV’s version of ‘Must-See TV’ on Thursday nights,” said Kevin Kay, president of Spike.

Hogan most recently penned an autobiography with Mark Dagostino, “My Life Outside The Ring” with St. Martin’s Press.

BOBBY HEENAN HOSPITALIZED
By Mike Johnson on 2009-12-11 17:07:41
WWE Hall of Famer Bobby Heenan has been admitted into the Tampa, FL based H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center after a scheduled examination of his rebuilt jaw found an infection that needed to be immediately treated.

Heenan, who was recently honored in Milwaukee, WI with 12/5 being proclaimed "Bobby Heenan Day", will miss his scheduled appearance at the K&S Wrestlefest event in New Jersey this weekend.

Heenan will be hospitalized until the infection can be eradicated due to the nature of his medical background, as his jaw was rebuilt due to infections stemming from his cancer treatment.

On behalf of everyone at PWInsider.com, we'd like to send our best wishes to the Heenan family during this latest medical setback.

Heenan, who was recently honored in Milwaukee, WI with 12/5 being proclaimed "Bobby Heenan Day", will miss his scheduled appearance at the K&S Wrestlefest event in New Jersey this weekend.

Heenan will be hospitalized until the infection can be eradicated due to the nature of his medical background, as his jaw was rebuilt due to infections stemming from his cancer treatment.

On behalf of everyone at PWInsider.com, we'd like to send our best wishes to the Heenan family during this latest medical setback.

:prayers:
That's to bad i hope he is going to be ok he was the best heel manager ever in wrestling.

So now Seamus is WWE Champ, after having put Cena through a table at last night's PPV. O_o

While I'm glad to see the belt off of Cena (who keeps getting it back far too often IMO), I have to say I'm not entirely confident/sure that putting it on someone as "new" to the WWE as Seamus is the right thing to do. I mean, other than the whole "angry Irishman that LOVES to fight," he doesn't seem to have much going for him. :?

but I agree, I don't like seeing a new guy as the WWE champion. I do like him though, kind of rare cuz I don't usually like the heel wrestlers (typical) :lol:

Was at a house show in West Palm Beach tonight. It was pretty freaking sweet. Here's the card and results. I was near the entrance ramp so I got to shake several of the wrestlers hands and I got yelled at by CM Punk cause I tried to shake his hand. He plays a good heel I'll give him that.

R-Truth defeated Dolph Ziggler
The Hart Dynasty defeated Slam Master J and Jimmy Wang Yang
Vance Archer defeated Tommy Dreamer
Kane defeated Mike Knox
Mickie James, Savannah, and Maria defeated Michelle McCool, Layla, and Beth Phoenix
Christian defeated Zack Ryder to retain the ECW Championship
Drew McIntyre defeated John Morrison and Matt Hardy to retain the Intercontinental Championship
The Undertaker and Rey Mysterio defeated Batista and CM Punk

I wonder how the ratings will be for Jan. 4. Both Impact and Raw will be competing. I guess it all depends what the fans rather see more. Either Bret Hart on Raw or Hulk Hogan on Impact.

I'm sure Bischoff is trying to work out a deal to put Impact on Monday's permanently. They plan to debut Epics soon so that might take Impact's normal slot. I think TNA did a decent job on Monday. Though let's just pray it's not gonna be WCW all over again.

WWE News: Chris Jericho's arrest receives coverage from high-end CBC news outlet in Canada

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

The news of WWE wrestler Chris Jericho's arrest early Wednesday morning reached the high-end CBC news outlet in Canada to give Jericho the wrong kind of press in his home market.

The CBC report included the basics on his arrest with Gregory Helms and noted Jericho's various awards in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Jericho and Helms's arrest has been today's major story in pro wrestling and, by virtue of TMZ's multiple reports, one of the top stories in entertainment news. Moments ago, Jericho posted on Twitter: "So, anything going on today?"

WWE News: John Morrison says he expects to be in the Royal Rumble, knocks Sheamus's main event push

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE wrestler John Morrison says he expects to be in the Royal Rumble match despite WWE not officially listing him for the match. Morrison would be officially the 27th wrestler and unofficially the 28th wrestler with R-Truth also not listed on WWE's official list.

"Holy crap. This whole time I thought I was (in the match)," Morrison told Greg Oliver of Slam Wrestling. "I'm sure I'll be in there."

The rest of Morrison's interview included in-character comments on Drew McIntyre, who he is currently feuding against in Smackdown storylines, and at current WWE champion Sheamus. He also talked up Dolph Ziggler as a future star if "given a break at the right time."

"I think my path has been a slow rise. I think a lot of people rise too quickly and they find out when they get there - I think Sheamus is going to find out - that they haven't really earned the respect of the WWE Universe or the locker room, and they're going to end up falling flat, falling back down the card and either walk back up to the top or just fall right down and stay down," Morrison said about Sheamus.

TNA News: Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff say they haven't confirmed permanent Monday night slot

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff claimed on today's "State of TNA" address on Bubba the Love Sponge's radio show that they have not heard confirmation of TNA Impact moving to Monday nights permanently.

Bischoff said he's only heard what he's read on the Internet regarding the permanent slot. Hogan said he's heard Spike wants March 1, then another Monday special a few months later, then another.

Hogan said he wants to keep pushing the current product to force Spike to agree to putting them on Monday nights permanently.

"I got my wish list. We were talking about the first week of March, then doing a couple things later," Hogan said. "We want to really promote it. I wish it was a lock, but no one's told me. We're pushing the bar every week so Spike has to say yes."

GARDNER'S KEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Monday night battle would bring accountability to both WWE and TNA

By Richard Gardner, Torch specialist

It's unconfirmed that TNA will be moving to Monday nights on March 1, so for the sake of argument, let's assume Impact starts on Monday nights one month from now.

WWE is the most established and recognizable wrestling brand on the planet and it will not be challenged overnight - despite its own creative problems - and taking on McMahon's organization is a bold move to say the least.

The 1.45 rating that TNA drew on Monday, January 4 was a great achievement, particularly considering they were opposed by an edition of Raw that featured Bret Hart's first WWE TV appearance in 12 years. This suggests there are a number of wrestling fans who are still interested in wrestling, but no longer watch Raw. WWE has not faced regular wrestling competition on a Monday night since WCW Nitro was cancelled in 2001, and the lack of competition has caused complacency within the company. Even WWE wrestler Ted DiBiase said last week he welcomes the competition.

There is no pressure on Vince McMahon to address the problems with WWE, as Raw still draws acceptable ratings and is not losing viewers to a rival promotion. Yet wrestling fans have recently been isolated by the embarrassing antics of Hornswoggle and the guest hosts, which dominate Monday nights. It's as if Vince McMahon has become so wrapped up in his vision of WWE as an entertainment format that he has forgotten what made his company so popular in the first place.

TNA has their own problems. While TNA has previously positioned itself as a WWE alternative, some of the decisions that have taken place in the early days of the Bischoff/Hogan regime have called this into question. Older, ex-WWE stars have been put over their TNA counterparts. Granted, storytelling is less frenetic, but there is still reliance upon nonsensical twists, such as a disqualification in a cage match or a re-enactment of the Montreal Screwjob.

A notable feature of the original Monday Night War was the movement of talent between WCW and WWF. Despite the fact that WWE is considered the industry leader, TNA offers a viable alternative for disenchanted WWE talent. Instead of outbidding WWE in contract negotiations, as WCW did in the late '90s, TNA has the ability to offer a vastly reduced schedule in comparison to the grind of life on the road with WWE. Jeff Hardy's appearance on the January 4 Impact has already illustrated that big names are willing to make that jump.

Regardless of the problems with WWE and TNA, a permanent move to Monday nights for Impact would be fantastic news for both wrestlers and wrestling fans alike. WWE wrestlers will be in a better position to negotiate contracts with the option to defect to an organization that is direct competition. Wrestling fans would have choice on Monday nights, and can vote with their remote controls when WWE's regular bad comedy segments air.

TNA is not perfect, and I have been as critical as any other writer about certain aspects of the Bischoff/Hogan regime. The focus on stars from the past has been alarming to say the least. Yet a move to Monday nights should be the catalyst for renewed creativity from both sides. The 1.45 rating that Impact garnered on January 4 was promising. Although a show laden with big debuts and surprises is not sustainable on a weekly basis, it can be cited as evidence that wrestling fans are willing to watch an alternative to Raw.

If TNA moves to Monday nights, it will be hugely beneficial for wrestling fans, who will have choice for the first time in nearly ten years. Those who write Raw and Impact will have nowhere to hide if certain angles lose viewers to the opposition.

Former NWA World Hvt. champion Jack Brisco reportedly dies at age 68

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Jack Brisco, the former two-time NWA World Hvt. champion, reportedly died this morning at age 68. No other details on his death are currently available.

NWA executive director Bob Trobich made the announcement this morning: "The National Wrestling Alliance is sorry to announce the passing of former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Jack Brisco. We send our love to his wife Jan, Gerry and his family."

Jack and Jerry Brisco were inducted into the 2008 WWE Hall of Fame class at WrestleMania 24 in Florida.

WWE's recently-released "History of the World Hvt. Title" DVD included Brisco vs. Terry Funk for the NWA World Title from December 10, 1975.

MORE ON WWE'S SYFY SERIES
By Mike Johnson on 2010-02-02 20:24:35
Sources in WWE just confirmed the ECW on SyFy series will indeed go forward under the name WWE NXT, with NXT standing for "Next Generation."

As we initially broke back in November 2009 in the PWInsider.com Elite section, one of the concepts pitched to SyFy was to build the series around an entirely new cast of characters with the tease being viewers could watch them debut and develop nowhere but on SyFy. One would think a lot of talents will be coming up from WWE developmental soon.

TNA News: Hulk Hogan responds to criticism that TNA looks like "WCW 2000," addresses hardcore wrestling fans critical of TNA's direction

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor


Hulk Hogan responded to criticism that TNA's TV product currently looks like "WCW 2000" on last night's Rob Van Dam radio show by saying TNA management and Spike TV are trying to determine which wrestlers are ratings draws and which wrestlers have no drawing power.

Hogan said they're "trying to find the bridge" in a so-called transition phase from the old, recognizable names to the new crop of stars by throwing as much against the wall to see what sticks on a minute-by-minute basis.

"What we're doing is we've been at it about a month now and we're trying to make a transition. I didn't want to come in as the red and yellow Hulk Hogan doing the clown act. What I tried to do was basically bump the number," Hogan said in response to a caller who was critical of TNA bringing in old stars. "We're watching the show minute by minute. We see when A.J. Styles comes on, where it jams. We see where Scott Hall comes on, where it jams. We see where Hulk Hogan's on and it spikes. We're going through the learning process. What we need to do with these young guys is breathe life into the characters."

Hogan continued: "We're throwing a bunch of stuff against the wall, seeing what spikes the needle minute by minute, and learning as we go along that some guys have no life at all and some guys have a lot of life. We're already maneuvering all the players around. You're going to see who we're going with more than others. You're going to see who we're really giving the super rocket up their rear end."

Asked why he keeps putting himself on TV so much, Hogan played his "aw-shucks" self-deprecation card before basically saying he can't argue against the ratings jumping when he appears on-camera.

"If I'm on the TV too much, I'm pulling myself off. I don't need to walk my crippled ass down that ramp," Hogan said. "I'm not about being on TV, but for some reason, the last four weeks when I've been coming out doing the transition stuff, the needle spiked a little bit."

Hogan also defended TNA's direction against generalized criticism about TNA's direction from hardcore wrestling fans who follow pro wrestling on the Internet or in wrestling newsletters, such as the Torch. Hogan again played the self-deprecation card that he hasn't been smartened up to the business, especially dealing with a TV network, so how could anyone question what they're doing in TNA.

"All these people you call the smart marks and I've been in the business 30 years and I'm still a mark. I'm not smartened up yet, brother. All of a sudden, people are saying, 'Why are you doing this and why are you doing that?' Do the marks know about the network - what Kevin Kay and Brian Diamond at Spike are asking and demanding? There's a whole 'nother world out there that all these people have an opinion on who's on TV too much, but they don't know what's happening with the network.

"I'm on a whole 'nother arena more than dealing with a finish or putting RVD on TV. The network might want RVD on TV less or more. They might want RVD on TV all the time or not at all. There's a lot of things that I'm having to deal with that I never had to deal with in the past.

"This is a big universe and I'm listening to everyone. She (the caller critical of TNA's direction) makes a very valid point and believe me I don't want to be on TV all the time. I like to be in the back and think of stuff and listen to everyone's ideas. That's where I'm having fun. I think if I were to drop the leg again, I would never get up again."

Hogan also gave an explanation for bringing in the Nasty Boys to TNA: "The Nasty Boys - I love them because I believe they can give 3D a run."

Caldwell's Analysis: Nasty Boys and "run" aren't in the same sentence very often. Knobs was blown up just cutting his promo on Team 3D last week on Impact. See below for video evidence if you need a reminder. (To give TNA credit, though, they did a fine job selling the mass audience on a tag match that could be the trainwreck of the century.)

Regarding Hogan's three-paragraph defense above, it's interesting to note his defense was that he has to deal with network-types who want to see specific numbers in the ratings. Hogan didn't have an answer for 'Why are you doing this and why are you doing that?' from a creative standpoint. He simply "shifted the focus" onto drawing sympathy for having to deal with suits at the network. Hogan is making it sound like they're going to live-and-die on the creative ideas thrown against the wall until they settle into a consistent pattern once they figure out who's worth keep on the roster and who needs to go.

I believe it was just before their European tour, when they were still in the U.S. Reports said that even the TNA wrestlers were surprised when they walked into the studio and saw the four-sided ring.

I don't like the concept of WWE's NXT starring upcoming young stars from FCW. It makes me wonder whats gonna happen to the likes of William Regal, Christian, Ezekial, Vladimir, and maybe even Shelton Benjamin.  Though, I'm not worried for the likes of Yoshi Tatsu (amazing) and Zack Ryder (meh)....and damn! I'm  looking at the ECW roster page, and it's crazy how small their roster is. But hey, they only had an hour of tv time(plus some time on Superstars).

Anways, it's good that they are getting rid of the ECW name, only cuz the current version didn't embody the classics version's ways. RIP. (and I wonder whats gonna happen to that nice ass championship belt.)

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Recently released WWE wrestler Eric Escobar saved face in Puerto Rico with a promo talking down about the WWE backstage atmosphere and saying he left WWE in January on good terms with the door open for his return.

Escobar recently cut a promo on TV saying he wasn't told he would be paired with Vickie Guerrero on TV as her new boyfriend until John Cena gave him a heads up. Escobar also described WWE as "disorganized" behind-the-scenes.

Escobar equated it to a house where the mother wanted one thing, the father wanted something else, and the kids wanting another thing. He did say he was treated fair while in WWE before he was released from his contract.

I'm not to fond of this NXT idea I mean the whole point behind FCW is to make the development wrestlers earn a spot in the main roster. I know ECW now isn't what it use to be but I actually like that brand more than Raw and Smackdown. Since NXT is suppose to bring up the FCW roster I hope those in ECW like Christian, Regal, Benjamin, Yoshi Tatsu, Ryder, and Jackson go to either Raw or SD and actually make something of their careers. It's gonna suck more for Christian cause he's gonna retire that nice platinum ECW title.

MORE ON WWE'S NXT PLANS
By Mike Johnson on 2010-02-09 12:33:11
As Christian alluded to on last night's episode of Raw, all of the current ECW brand talents will be moving to Smackdown and Raw with the storyline being they will be "free agents."

The WWE NXT series, which all signs point to being a "reality" based show where new talents are striving to earn a slot on the main rosters, will still feature veteran talents from the other brands.

The word from creative sources is that there will be regular appearances from WWE stars "mentoring and hindering" the new talents that are being introduced on NXT.

So, WWE will use the larger names to help draw a rating for the series while using NXT to break new talents out.

WWE NXT will debut on 2/23.

WWE News: WWE doing a major overhaul to the PPV line-up after WrestleMania

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE is continuing to overhaul their PPV line-ups with a complete new schedule outside of Summerslam in August that begins after WrestleMania in March.

The changes begin in April where the Backlash PPV is being dropped in favor of bumping up the Extreme Rules PPV.

Extreme Rules's slot on May 23 is now "WWE Wild Card." The Bash PPV is now being replaced by "Fatal Four Way" on June 20.

The Night of Champions PPV is now being moved to September. The July slot is now "Money in the Bank" on July 18.

WWE Summerslam is still safe in August, followed by Night of Champions in September and Hell in a Cell in October.

WWE News: WWE pulls video of Undertaker caught on fire, Updates on TMZ covering the story, Photo slideshow

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Handheld video surfaced this morning of The Undertaker momentarily being caught on fire during his ring entrance at last night's WWE Elimination Chamber PPV, but WWE quickly had the video removed from YouTube.

The video shot from above and to the right of the entrance stage showed Taker standing in the middle of the stage when a flame shot up directly where he was standing. Taker then ran from the platform down the entranceramp and discarded his hat and coat.

TMZ picked up the story and posted an item this morning with a headline: "The Undertaker Survives Fireball to The Face."

Torch reader Chris Flynn submitted photos of The Undertaker incident last night. The photos are a little grainy, but you can see the flames engulfing Taker below...

Umaga News: Cause of death determined for Eddie Fatu (Umaga)

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Nearly three months after the death of former WWE wrestler Eddie Fatu (Umaga), the Harris County medical examiner in Houston has determined that Fatu's cause of death was "acute toxicity due to combined effects of hydrocodone, carisoprodol, and diazepam," reports wrestling author Irv Muchnick.

More specifically, it was a lethal combination of painkillers (hydrocodone), muscle relaxers (carisoprodol), and anti-anxiety medication (diazepam).

It's worth noting the medical examiner labeled Fatu's death "acute toxicity," which implies a deadly mix of drugs within a short period of time, usually 24 hours. The examiner did not link his death back to any "chronic" drug use prior to his death on December 4, but that could have been an indirect factor.

Benoit News: Supreme Court makes a ruling in Nancy Benoit Family vs. Hustler Magazine lawsuit

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that the family of Nancy Benoit can proceed with a lawsuit against Hustler Magazine for using old nude photos in a story following the Benoit Family Tragedy in June 2007. The tragedy left Nancy, Chris, and their son, Daniel, dead from Chris's double murder-suicide.

The court turned down Hustler's appeal today to block the Toffoloni family from proceeding with a lawsuit.

Nancy Benoit's family filed a federal lawsuit against Hustler's corporate-backers seeking a remedy after they tried to capitalize on the murders by printing nude photos that Nancy had previously asked to be destroyed.

A political blog (http://blog.taragana.com/politics/2010/03/01/supreme-court-says-lawsuit-can-go-ahead-against-hustler-over-nude-nancy-benoit-photos-21383/) initially reported on the story this morning. Fox Sports (http://msn.foxsports.com/boxing/story/supreme-court-rules-hustler-can-be-sued-over-benoit-pics) has since picked up the story this afternoon.

"It is with heavy heart we announce the loss of wrestling legend Angelo Poffo who passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning age 84," reports Lanny Poffo's webmaster, Steve Wilton.

WWE/TNA News: Chris Jericho critical of RVD angle on last night's TNA Impact

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE World Hvt. champion Chris Jericho was critical of how TNA booked Rob Van Dam's TNA debut on last night's Impact in a comment posted on Twitter this morning.

"The beat down of RVD 20 seconds into his debut in TNA was mind boggling," Jericho said. "I don't understand how so many talented people can be so clueless."

Recapping what happened on Impact, Sting was booked against a mystery opponent, which turned into RVD. RVD then beat Sting in a matter of seconds, but Sting delivered an extended post-match beat down until Hulk Hogan made the save.

WWE News: Bret Hart talks in-depth on Vince McMahon, WWE return, Owen Hart during TV interview

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart appeared on CTV's "Canada AM" show this morning promoting WrestleMania 26 and covering key subjects related to his return to WWE in a five-minute segment.

Hart was in-studio and shown not wearing a leg brace or using crutches to sell the storyline "car crash" leading to his WrestleMania match against Vince McMahon.

The over-riding story from what Hart said in the interview is that he came back to WWE because he did not want to be known as a bitter man holding grudges against the wrestling business or Vince McMahon forever. He also publicly absolved McMahon of any blame for his brother Owen Hart's death over ten years ago.

"I've clearly carried around a lot of bad feelings for Vince McMahon and the company for a long time. I think this whole - me coming back and playing this part and doing this thing with Vince McMahon at WrestleMania - is a way of clearing the table for everyone," Hart said.

"There's been so many bad things that happened; clearly my brother Owen's death was just a bad accident that you can't hold Vince McMahon directly accountable for that. It was someone else underneath that didn't know what he was doing. I guess my coming back was a way to forgive and forget in a good way and move on. I didn't know I would always be tagged as a guy who was always bitter or negative guy toward the wrestling business that kind of made me in a lot of ways. It's closure, maybe."

Hart added that he wanted to give back to the wrestling business and "make it okay" for wrestling fans in Canada to support the WWE product again. He said he felt it was time to put the past in the past and allow himself, Shawn Michaels, and Vince McMahon to have their burdens lifted from what happened at Survivor Series 1997.

"Now all these years later, it's like 'are you going to cry about it forever and just keep making a big deal about something that happened a long time ago in a wrestling match?' I know it's all very serious to me and it still is. But, at the same time, I felt that after 12 years, for one, I was getting a little bored back in Calgary just sitting around doing nothing all the time. I thought maybe it's a good time now after all these years to take something negative and turn it into a positive to do something good for wrestling fans to make them more at ease with what happened with me and my brother Owen," Hart said.

"I think a lot of people still feel a deep pain and deep hurt for what happened with my brother Owen. There's some of the younger generation Harts coming up in WWE, so I think it's a good way to show there's not the bad blood there used to be as far as making the wrestling as good as it used to be."

With people still concerned about his health after suffering a stroke in 2002, Hart closed by saying he doesn't expect to do anything physically he's not capable of working with McMahon at WrestleMania.

"Everyone watching shouldn't be too afraid of anything that's going to happen to me," he said. "I'm very careful of what I'm going to do and I'm going to take care of myself at WrestleMania."

WWE News: Bret Hart goes deep, in-depth on his WWE return - "They didn't come to me; I came to them"

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart covered in-depth a number of questions, concerns, and skepticism on his WWE return, specifically working with Vince McMahon again, in an interview with Michael Landsberg on TSN's "Off the Record" in Canada today.

The top story coming out of Hart's interview was Hart saying he approached WWE to make his return, as he felt the time was right to "turn a negative into a positive" after sitting on bitter feelings toward WWE for 12 years.

"I feel that when I initially approached them about it - I mean they didn't come to me; I came to them - I basically talked about trying to turn a negative into a positive and making it a better ending than the one I had at the end," Hart said. "The truth is, I thought it would be fun. I thought I needed a little adventure. I had some time where I found I was doing nothing, so I thought, 'why not?' I kept taking the 'why nots' against the 'why's' and in the end, I couldn't come up with enough reasons why not."

Hart was asked if there were additional motivations for returning, either financially or because he couldn't walk away from the wrestling business like many of his peers.

"I didn't go back because I had to have it or needed it. I don't have the schedule that the wrestlers have and just to have a bit part on the show," Hart said. "Hopefully I'll make some money, but it was never really about the money. Even when I talked to him (Vince McMahon), we didn't bicker about what I was going to be paid. It was more what they would do with me and how we could make it fun. It was a big negative thinking about it for 13 years and being angry about what happened, and trying to take something negative and turn it into a positive."

Hart also said he sensed from Vince McMahon some sadness on his part over what happened at Survivor Series 1997 and especially with Owen Hart's death in 1999. Hart said he almost felt like it was an opportunity to relieve McMahon of his burdens from the situation.

"I found myself all these years later saying, 'If I could go back on my own terms and have fun and almost make light of what happened. Clearly what happened with my brother Owen was an accident. I don't think anyone refutes that much anymore. I think WWE and Vince McMahon carried around a lot of heartache because I don't think anyone felt good about that," Hart said.

"I do think there's a bit of conscience aspect to all this. I think Vince, in his own little small way, felt bad about what happened to me. And then the Owen tragedy heaped on top of it and the family problems and all the stuff that's happened over the years, I've sensed in my own little way - which is why I did come forward - that Vince has been looking for a little peace."

Hart recalled McMahon reaching out to him previously, specifically when he was in the hospital in 2002 after suffering a stroke. Hart said he was torn on whether to slam the phone down or listen to what McMahon had to say.

"When I had my stroke, he called me in the hospital within two or three days. I was in a bad state. When the phone rang, I remember picking it up and it was Vince's voice. There was a part of me that wanted to slam the phone down and there was another part of me that said, 'Talk to him.' I think in those fragile moments - people think now, 'Why would you go back? - those are all part of the process of repairing a friendship," Hart said. "I think in a lot of ways, Vince has always tried to make it to me. I just sensed the time was right - it was an open wound that everyone was better off putting a big band-aid on."

As for their singles match at WrestleMania 26, Hart said he doesn't anticipate a similar screwjob. If it does happen, he said he'll just shake his head at WWE. Hart also described his physical limitations in the ring, while adding his head is the most important part of his body to protect in the ring.

"I think I've come back with an open mind. If something bad happened again, I would just have to shake my head and go, 'Well, you asked for it, I guess.' I don't know what the benefit would be for either one of us to take that route again," Hart said before describing the expected physical aspect of their match.

"I'm at risk to a certain degree. I have limitations on what I can do physically, but I've taken every kind of precaution that I can take physically. I can't get hurt. I have to be really careful with my head. My head's worth all the money in the world," Hart said. "People see me and they assume, 'Oh, he can do lots of stuff.' And I'm sure I could do lots of things that I used to do, but anyone with the illusion that the Bret Hart they're going to watch at WrestleMania this year is going to be the Bret Hart of yesterday is not going to be the same thing. But, I will say that anyone who watches me wrestle will be entertaining by it. I've gone into this knowing I can at least satisfy my fans."

WWE News: Official WrestleMania 26 line-up after this week's TV shows

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

After this weekend's run of WWE TV shows, the official WrestleMania 26 line-up shapes up with seven near-complete matches and no official announcement of a C.M. Punk vs. Rey Mysterio match yet.

WWE took nine steps toward confirming Punk vs. Rey on last night's Smackdown, but an official tenth step has not been taken yet. WWE will also be adding one more wrestler to the Money in the Bank line-up, with Kofi Kingston seemingly the odds-on-favorite to be added to the match.

The official WrestleMania PPV line-up is as follows:

-- Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker
The Career vs. The Streak

-- WWE champion Batista vs. John Cena

-- World Hvt. champion Chris Jericho vs. Edge

-- Bret Hart vs. Vince McMahon

-- Triple H vs. Sheamus

-- Unified tag champions Big Show & The Miz vs. R-Truth & John Morrison

-- Money in the Bank match: Raw's four of Christian, Jack Swagger, MVP, and Evan Bourne and Smackdown's five of Dolph Ziggler, IC champion Drew McIntyre, Matt Hardy, Kane, and Shelton Benjamin. One more slot to be filled before WrestleMania.

Still to be added

-- C.M. Punk vs. Rey Mysterio, Legacy, and Divas.

WWE News: Shawn Michaels opens up more about being prepared to walk away from wrestling, comments on Ric Flair joining TNA

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE wrestler Shawn Michaels revealed much more about his mindset heading into WrestleMania 26 in an interview with Kevin Eck of the Baltimore Sun. Michaels also revealed his thoughts on Ric Flair joining TNA after Flair's retirement match with Michaels two years ago at WrestleMania and criticism of him doing the DX routine.

-- Michaels said Ric Flair called him before going to Australia for the Hulkamania Tour with Hulk Hogan to wrestle again and Michaels had no problem with it. He said he tried to be understanding when Flair called him about going to TNA on January 4 and ultimately wrestling again.

"He called me again when he was going to sign with TNA and asked the same thing. There’s nothing you can say. I certainly don’t have what it takes to look at somebody and say, 'Don’t go make a living.' I told him that, for me, nothing can take away that special moment. It will still always be to me that I had Ric Flair’s last match," Michaels said. "I tried to do the best job I could for him. I think it was a special moment. Anything after that [pauses]. I feel for him, but I’m certainly not angry or disappointed or anything. I would like to think that Ric probably would have liked that to have been his last match, too. The fact that it couldn’t be, I understand. Those are circumstances that I certainly can’t control."

Michaels also detailed his personal relationship with Flair: "I want what’s best for Ric, even if Ric might not always be aware of what that is, I still want that for him. Nothing will take away from that moment. It’s sill truly special. I still wear my watch every day, so it’s still something I’m really proud of."

-- Reading through Michaels's entire interview, it's obvious the tone from Michaels is that he's ready to walk away if that's the end result on Monday, he feels he's peaked as an in-ring performer in terms of "being able to top last year's WrestleMania," and he would much rather continue to find purpose and meaning at home with his faith & family rather than in the ring.

"I work on being a good husband and a good father after that, and then what’s left over from those things, I apply to my work. It’s not the end all be all anymore, but I still feel like I’ve done a good job at it and I’ve been faithful at it," Michaels said. "But everybody does understand that at 11:06 on Monday (when Raw goes off the air), I’m done. You can call all you want during the week, but I don’t take part in it and when I show up Monday, I will be there and I will do my job to the best of my ability, but then after that I’m done again."

-- One element that's been over-looked as far as why Michaels would walk away now is that he finally has closure and peace with Survivor Series 1997 with Bret Hart. Michaels and Hart's in-ring exchange on January 4 may have been the first sign Michaels could consider walking away at this year's WrestleMania.

"I remember way back when I first came to WWE and how we used to get along, and it was nice and it was pleasant. And to have that now is nice. I know for a lot of people it may seem strange, but for he and I it’s a nice place to be," Michaels said. "I look back on my return in 2002 and so many things have gone full circle, and to be where he and I are at now, it’s one of those things where you say, 'Man, second chances are really nice.' Everybody doesn’t always get them. You know me, I’m a little deep and a little goofy about that stuff, but it’s important. In a strange business and in a business that, heaven forbid, you show your heart, you’re going to be called a bunch of stuff and made fun of constantly, but for me, it was nice and it's a great place to be with him."

WM was pretty boring again this year but I thought the three main events were pretty decent. Agreed that Jericho-Edge match should have been longer. Batista and Cena both are bad wrestlers but I thought they were as good as they'll ever be (which is still not that great). Though not as good as last year's match, the Taker-HBK match was another classic between the two.

Chris Kanyon reportedly dies at age 40

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

The Torch learned overnight and Prowrestling.net confirms (http://www.prowrestling.net/artman/publish/miscnews/article10011186.shtml) this morning that former WWE and WCW wrestler Chris Kanyon (real name Christopher Klucsaritis) died on Friday as a result of an apparent overdose due to prescription pills. Klucsaritis was 40-years-old.

Klucsaritis, who is most-known for his work as Mortis and Chris Kanyon in WCW, last worked on national TV for WWE during the early 2000s before being released from the company in 2004.

Klucsaritis garnered headlines in 2006 by announcing he was openly gay. He first announced his "Chris Kanyon" character was gay to create publicity, then announced he was gay personally. (Read the background on the story.) (http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/Other_News_4/article_16264.shtml)

We'll continue to monitor the story this weekend and publish more details once they are confirmed.

Wrestlers remember Chris Kanyon after his death on Friday

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Several former colleagues of Chris Kanyon (Christopher Klucsaritis) posted messages on Twitter today remembering Kanyon, who reportedly died at the age of 40 yesterday after a drug overdose.

The following are two detailed messages from former WCW colleague Billy Kidman and Matt Jackson a/k/a Max Buck in TNA. The Jackson brothers booked Kanyon for shows in California a few years ago when they ran their own independent promotion.

Former WWE/WCW wrestler Billy Kidman: "Saddened by the loss of my best friend...I've known him for almost 15yrs & we've been there for one another through thick & thin, we've both had demons & dealt with them together, and I love him like a brother...RIP Chris I will forever & always miss & love you & cherish the time we had together."

Young Buck Matt Jackson (Max Buck in TNA): "Just heard the very sad news about Chris Kanyon. I'm absolutely shocked. I knew him personally and spoke with him for several yrs now. While he had his troubles, I do believe ultimately that he was a good man. We spoke to each other about Christ, battling depression and how he struggled with being bi-polar. Sorry Chris. I wish I could of helped. God bless you. Rest in peace."

Former WWE/WCW wrestler The Hurricane Gregory Helms: "RIP Chris Kanyon. He was a good guy that helped a LOT of people in this biz. He struggled with a lot of problems though. It's a sad day."

Jim Ross, Paul Heyman, Lance Storm critical of the TNA product for different reasons

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Jim Ross, Paul Heyman, and Lance Storm have all weighed in on the polarizing TNA product over the last 24 hours, with Storm coming out the harshest against TNA, saying he's done watching the show.

-- Storm said the final straw for him was not his opinion of the product, but the chair shot to the head delivered by Homicide on Rob Terry during Monday night's show.

"Yes they have done chair shots to the head before, and they bothered me then too, but this one was different; this unprotected chair shot to the head came just 2 days after Chris Kanyon’s suicide death and I just couldn’t stomach it. I know there will be defenders out there that will want to argue that Chris Kanyon’s depression that led to his suicide has not been determined to as a result of concussions he suffered due to chair shots to the head, but that is just a cop out, in my opinion," Storm said said in his online commentary on StormWrestling.com (http://www.stormwrestling.com/040610.html).

"How the people in charge of TNA can be either this insensitive or this oblivious is beyond me. Now I’m not saying that this one instance has sealed the fate of young Rob Terry or that TNA has sentenced him to death, but there are many roads one can travel on in life and we all know where this particular road leads. Rob Terry and TNA together have very willingly chosen a very dangerous road to go down, and it is a journey I refuse to witness or support."

-- Jim Ross was asked about Storm's commentary and Storm's position opposed to TNA. Ross responded on jrsbarbq.com (http://www.jrsbarbq.com/jrs-qa): "I have not read his blogs lately but I enjoy his passion and his candor. I'm sure that some people thought TNA was just fine Monday night. Others obviously did not. Same old story. We all see things on many wrestling shows that we would change in hindsight."

Ross's rather diplomatic response in the Q&A section of his website was softer than the veiled shot he took at TNA over-complicating matches on Impact, which was one of the key complaints on the show.

"For the record, if a TV pro wrestling scenario has to be explained multiple times to get the viewership to at least partially understand the concept then it is too convoluted. I'm just saying," Ross said in his latest blog on Tuesday (http://www.jrsbarbq.com/blog/tuesdayhart-soul-dvd-must-seekerry-vs-bretyoung-rosters-are-good-thingrandom-thoughts).

-- Last night on Twitter (http://twitter.com/HeymanHustle), Paul Heyman focused on the senseless booking of Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam, who he helped mold into a top star in the Original ECW.

"To answer all the questions, I will not be blogging on last night's TNA Impact. What am I going to say that has not been said already?"

One minute later, Heyman said: "Okay, I can't resist. How many times can u beat up RVD and Jeff Hardy and not give them a 'revenge-minded' interview afterwards? Heels beat up babyfaces. Babyfaces swear revenge. People tune in. Holy s---! The formula is not that f'n complicated, people!"

Heyman continued: "I don't want any1 to think I am saying I know it all. I DON'T KNOW IT ALL. I still have a lot to learn. I don't know how to grow hair on top of my head. I don't know how to get six pack abs."

"BUT I KNOW THAT IF A HEEL BEATS UP A POPULAR BABYFACE, THEN BABYFACE NEEDS A CHANCE TO PROMOTE THE TIME AND PLACE OF THE BABYFACE'S REVENGE."

Bret Hart blogs on joining WWE's European Tour, endorses Sheamus & Drew McIntyre

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Bret Hart published a new blog on his official Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?v=wall&viewas=15104017&id=100000646872380#!/notes/bret-hart/update-april-7-2010/382180212571) reflecting on his memories of working in Europe ahead of playing the part of ringside enforcer during WWE's European Tour.

Hart covered memories in cities like Berlin, Dublin, Glasgow, and Sheffield where WWE will be touring and Hart will be appearing.

Hart recalled WWE head Vince McMahon telling him that WWE hasn't recovered in Germany since he left the company after Survivor Series 1997.

"Berlin, I really had some terrific matches there. I hope that my German fans will come out for what could be my last time ever," Hart said. "I recall Vince McMahon telling me once 'that Germany has never come back since you left in '97.'"

Hart also gave shout-outs to old & new European wrestlers in WWE he's "come to have respect for," including Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Finlay, William Regal, and Katie Lea Burchill.

"Million Dollar Man" cuts a promo on Ultimate Warrior, glad he wasn't at Hall of Fame

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

"Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, this year's WWE Hall of Fame 'main eventer,' says he's glad Ultimate Warrior was not added to the Hall of Fame class because he doesn't believe Warrior deserved the recognition.

"I'm glad he wasn't there. I'm glad he wasn't there because he's somebody I don't particularly care for, and quite frankly, he was somebody who got a big push," DiBiase said the Monday Night Mayhem radio show (http://www.mondaynightmayhem.com/) this week. "He's one of those guys that has never really appreciated what was done for him."

DiBiase said there are wrestlers who have done well in the wrestling business that were lacking in some area, but DiBiase believes Warrior is undeserving of recognition because he could only have a good match if he was led by another wrestler and he was never able to lead another wrestler to a good match.

"So the fact that he wasn't called on doesn't bother me at all. I thought that since he lived out in that area (Phoenix), I thought that could have happened, and quite honestly, it would have been a very tense backstage environment if he and I were together," DiBiase said.

"He's one of those guys who has been given so much in terms of an opportunity in our industry, who even to this day doesn't appreciate it, and I don't know for the life of me who he thinks he is."

Also in the interview, DiBiase said he's open to more cameo appearances on WWE TV to work an angle with his son, Ted DiBiase, Jr., but he believes DiBiase is ready to branch out on his own.

"Whenever the company calls on me, and they want me to make a cameo appearance, and if they would like me to do something more on a regular basis, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it," DiBiase said. "I think when you look at the roster and the guys that are there, it's time. It's time for them to start stepping up a notch, and we'll just see how it goes."

Rey Mysterio says he wants to retire in 3 years, talks 30-day suspension, starring in movie

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE wrestler Rey Mysterio says he would like to retire on a big stage in three years, which could be WrestleMania 29 similar to Shawn Michaels retiring at WrestleMania 26 this year.

I plan to take three years to announce my retirement in a historic event," Mysterio told mediotiempo.com in Mexico. Mysterio added that when he retires, his body will "thank him for not exploiting it anymore" after so many injuries and operations so he can devote himself to his wife and kids.

Mysterio also talked about his 30-day Wellness Policy suspension in 2009 being "cleared up" with the proper documentation after his suspension. He said his body needed the time off, but he was emotionally distraught about his image possibly being hurt.

Mysterio also said he would like to follow in the line of Lucha wrestlers who have starred in movies, saying there have been talks of a potential movie in the next one-to-two years to fulfill a dream he's had "for a long time.

Former TNA writer heavily criticizes TNA's creative effort, points to declining ratings as evidence it's not working

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Former TNA writer/agent Dutch Mantell says he believes TNA doesn't understand its audience and the current creative team has an arrogant attitude that it's the fault of the audience for not understanding the product as ratings have declined.

"I don’t think they know their audience. In their eyes, if you don’t understand it, it’s not the writing, it’s you," Mantell told Mike Mooneyham of the Charleston Post & Courier newspaper (http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2010/apr/11/road-dutch-mantell/). "The joke seems to be on them."

Mantell's comments come on the heels of Hulk Hogan essentially blaming the audience for low TV ratings during an appearance on Bubba the Love Sponge's radio show (http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/TNA_News_1/article_40479.shtml) earlier this week. "The audience needs to warm up to how TNA is changing and how they're stepping up and how fast it's moving," Hogan said.

Mantell also suggested there is a dark cloud hovering over TNA and the company will be in trouble if Spike TV ever decides to drop TNA programming.

"I’ve been around a lot of offices with the death knell, and the TNA office has got the death knell about it," Mantell claimed. "The only money they’re really making is off Spike, and if Spike balks, they’re screwed."

This week, Spike and TNA shifted Impact up an hour to 8:00 p.m. EST for a more favorable match-up with WWE Raw on Monday nights, added a brand new one-hour show at 7:00 p.m. EST, and continue to air the "Epics" TV highlight show on a regular basis.

Mantell, who was released from TNA at the end of July 2009 during a creative shake-up, defended his work along with Jeff Jarrett and Jim Cornette, saying they were able to take TNA's ratings to a consistent 1.3 level before the new staff undid their work to drop TNA to a 0.9 level.

"I told Jeff Jarrett that his big mistake was allowing bigger con men than him to get in there. That's what he did," Mantell said. "Before Jeff, Cornette, and I left, we had this thing up to a 1.3 for three weeks in a row. When we left, you could almost track the demise of TNA from July 31 backwards. They dropped it down to a 0.9. And it’s continued to drop."

Looking at the ratings, TNA drew between a 1.27 and 1.33 for five weeks from March 19 to April 16, 2009. Right before the creative shake-up, the ratings peaked again for 2009 with a 1.31 on July 23 and 1.29 on July 30.

Supporting Mantell's statement, Impact ratings dipped to a 0.96 on September 3, a 0.93 on September 10, then a 0.91 on November 26.

After the creative team shake-up, the ratings for 21 weeks of TV from August 6 until the end of the year on December 17 averaged a 1.07 rating. By contrast, the average from January 1 to July 31 was a 1.20 rating.

Pro wrestling superstar Gene Kiniski, who proclaimed himself "Canada's grestest athlete," died from cancer Wednesday, according to news reports.

Kiniski, 81, a former CFL player with the Edmonton Eskimos, and member of the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, rose to fame in the 1960s wrestling in Vancouver with NWA All Star Wrestling and ultimately won numerous world championship titles with several wrestling organizations.

Kiniski continued wrestling into the 1980s, appearing in the WWF legends battle royal in 1987. He finished wrestling professionally at age 66, wrestling in a handful of matches for Winnipeg's West Four Wrestling Alliance, stretching his career across five decades.

WWE officially announces Smackdown's move to Syfy; NXT being moved off Syfy

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE issued a press release (http://corporate.wwe.com/news/2010/WWECorporate-2010_04_13.jsp) this morning officially announcing that WWE Smackdown will move to Syfy starting Friday night, October 1, which would mark the end of a two-year partnership with MyNetworkTV.

Regarding the NXT show currently airing on Syfy, WWE said NXT "will leave Syfy in October as Friday Night SmackDown joins the schedule." The show is not being canceled, though. WWE will announce at a later time where they are moving NXT. Stay tuned.

Smackdown will keep its 8:00 p.m. EST timeslot when the show moves to Syfy. WWE disclosed they signed a "multi-year" agreement with Syfy, with comments from WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

"Syfy is a terrific partner and we look forward to bringing our proven ratings winner and ten year television institution, Friday Night SmackDown, to the network," said McMahon. "With this move, WWE is thrilled to be expanding its long-standing relationship with the NBC Universal family."

Chris Jericho says he could walk away from WWE; why he's sticking around

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Recent WWE World Hvt. champion Chris Jericho says he could walk away from WWE tomorrow and be happy with his career, but he wants to continue working for WWE to help the next generation of stars.

Jericho adds that today's newer stars have the disadvantage of a contracted pro wrestling industry where there are not a variety of different places to get work to learn as much about pro wrestling before joining TNA.

"I could leave tomorrow and be a happy guy. There’s really not much more for me to do," Jericho told Patrick Lennon of the Daily Star. "At this point it's about staying to help the business, to help the young guys I see around me. When I came up, you could go to Europe, Mexico, Japan, go all over, but the problem is now that these guys have no life experience or wrestling experience. It's not their fault."

Jericho says the young stars in WWE have too many expectations on them and he wants to help them ease into main event spots. Just in the last few months, WWE has put lofty expectations on Sheamus as a WWE champion, Jack Swagger as World Hvt. champion, and Drew McIntyre as the "chosen one" by Vince McMahon on TV.

"These young guys are brought on and expected to shoulder the whole company, they expect them to work like HBK and Undertaker, and it’s just not going to happen," Jericho said. "I want to help with that. To take the money and run, that's a s----- attitude, but there were guys like that when I came in, and there are guys like that in the business now. I love wrestling, and I want to leave knowing I left a business there for the future."

GARDNER'S KEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Why the Nexus vs. Team Cena storyline is working on Raw

By Richard Gardner, Torch specialist

Nexus, led by NXT Season One winner Wade Barrett, is heading into Summerslam as the focal point of WWE's key storyline on the Raw brand. A week after John Cena announced a team to fight the group in an elimination match at Summerslam, Nexus was put over as a dominant group on television during Monday's Raw.

WWE has unsuccessfully attempted to create gang warfare in recent years by building a rivalry between Raw and Smackdown, which even spawned its own Pay-Per-View, Bragging Rights. The problem with this approach was that there was never a tangible reason for the fans to get behind either team. Also, with wrestlers transferring between brands with such regularity, the concept of brand loyalty seemed forced. The confusion meant that it was difficult to tell who was the heel or face and why the fans should get behind the cause of either roster. After all, is there such thing as an avid Raw or Smackdown fan as opposed to an avid WWE fan?

The Nexus feud is different. Nexus has been presented as a legitimate threat to the WWE roster through a series of attacks to the top WWE stars. There is no confusing division of loyalties; Nexus are heels - supremely over heels at that - to the point where the likes of Edge and Chris Jericho are portrayed as the lesser of two evils.

This week on Raw, Nexus went over seven WWE stars in an elimination match. It was strange to see the group winning the contest without losing a single fall after being portrayed as novices on NXT for several months, but they were put over as a serious threat to the WWE team.

Nexus has gone from being harmless Rookies to a main event heel stable in a matter of weeks.

By contrast, the WWE team was booked to have dissention in the ranks over a show-long storyline. It started with John Cena and Chris Jericho arguing to open Raw and continued throughout the broadcast with disagreements between other members of the WWE team. Raw went off the air with the team members fighting and arguing in the ring.

It was simple, but effective booking that reinforced the momentum of the Nexus group and gave the audience a reason to buy the Summerslam PPV.

The Nexus storyline has given Raw direction in the past few weeks, leading to some of the best WWE TV shows of the year. Whether this momentum can be carried into Summerslam and beyond is another question, but in the meantime enjoy some of the most focused WWE booking in recent history.

On Sunday morning, Angle will be at El Monte High School, which is in Los Angeles county, filming scenes. Angle plays the role of a high school wrestling coach in the movie based on amateur wrestling.

The local EWF promotion run by former WWE referee Jesse Hernandez is helping promote the movie. They're seeking extras to be in the shoot on Sunday morning beginning at 11:00 a.m. PST.

"Beyond the Mat" is scheduled for release in first quarter 2011. Angle will also be in movies scheduled to come out this fall, including the MMA-themed "Warrior" movie, "Dead of Night," and "River of Darkness."

WWE News: Chris Jericho interview - discusses WWE future with contract coming due, rips TNA product and calls for changes

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

WWE wrestler Chris Jericho says there's "no reason for him to walk away from WWE" at this point in his career. Jericho's contract is reportedly due this fall, but Jericho says he feels has five years or more left to contribute in the wrestling business.

"I think the stuff I have been doing over the last three years is the best work of my career. So there's no reason for me to walk away from the WWE at this point, because I think I could perform at the level I have been doing for the last three years because you can't teach experience," Jericho said on the Monday Night Mayhem radio show last night.

"The company has a great future ahead of it, and guys are starting to break through that I'm really proud of. A guy like me, who has been doing this for 20 (and I'm only 39 years old), I could keep doing this another five or six years if I want to, so when it's time for me to walk away, I'll know, but as for now, I still enjoy it."

Jericho made it sound like his only option is continuing with WWE and he wouldn't consider TNA unless major changes are made. Jericho ripped the promotion, calling it a "vanity project" and said the product is "crap."

"They got nothing else going on, their booking is horrendous, and I say that with the utmost respect for those guys and I most desire to see them succeed, but it's crap. You know it's crap, they throw stuff up against the wall, and it's so hard to watch when it doesn't have to be," Jericho said in response to TNA's current "ECW period."

"Having a guy like Tommy Dreamer involved behind the scenes might be what they need. Get rid of the same old stuff that they have been doing over and over, and bring in someone with a new perspective, and maybe that will help them get their heads out of there asses and just making some money instead of doing this as sort of a vanity project that's been treading water for the last four years."

WWE/TNA News: WWE's lead attorney responds to TNA's use of "ECW" brand to promote Hardcore Justice PPV

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

After weeks of speculation on whether WWE would acknowledge TNA's recent promotion of the "ECW" brand, including using the letters E-C-W on the air during recent Impact episodes, WWE has stated their position.
 

WWE lead attorney Jerry McDevitt made the following statement to Newsday's Alfonso Castillo concerning TNA's promotion of the "Hardcore Justice" PPV on Sunday:

"WWE is the sole owner of the ECW marks, and as with all of WWE's intellectual property it will be vigorously protected. TNA acts at its peril if it infringes upon WWE's rights," McDevitt said.

As Castillo points out in his blog, TNA's ECW-themed PPV is now officially on WWE's radar. Whether or not WWE, which owns the rights to the "ECW" brand name and related trademarks, decides to make a legal claim prior to or after the TNA PPV remains to be seen.

TNA News: Report on whether TNA wrestlers will be attending Hardcore Justice PPV, what it says about current locker room morale

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

One of the questions going into Sunday night's ECW-themed Hardcore Justice PPV is whether the regular TNA wrestlers will be at the PPV.

According to sources, TNA has "encouraged" TNA wrestlers to attend the PPV, but it's not required since they're not booked on the PPV.

Many TNA wrestlers are not expected to attend, some reportedly "wanting nothing to do with" the PPV or ECW-related storylines that have taken time away from focusing on current TNA feuds and programs.

There's a feeling among wrestlers that TNA needs to look forward rather than continuing to look back - whether it's ECW, WCW, or past WWE storylines.

The timing of TNA giving former ECW wrestlers a PPV payday and shifting TNA's monthly PPV to free TV next Thursday is worth noting.

The rumored new wrestling promotion funded by the Wilpon Family continues to be a topic of discussion in the TNA locker room. Many wrestlers are speculative on whether the proposed new company will actually pan out. However, the story is that many TNA wrestlers are not happy with the recent emphasis on ECW and are considering their career options.

Sources in TNA have estimated that between 10 and 15 wrestlers on the TNA roster are considering their options between the proposed Wilpon promotion and pursuing a potential opportunity in WWE. Mid-to-upper tier TNA wrestlers in that group are believed to be considering WWE, while wrestlers not utilized by TNA are believed to be feeling out the proposed Wilpon promotion.

The recent emphasis on another brand (ECW) over the company's current roster, A.J. Styles recently expressing frustration with TNA decision-making, and Samoa Joe's outburst on TNA staff members paints the picture of a dissatisfied and frustrated locker room.

TNA wrestlers on the roster under the age of 35 are said to be strongly considering their options, especially after being loyal to the promotion during its growth stage and believing they're being passed over in favor of former stars.

Styles captured that feeling in an interview earlier this week when he talked about TNA putting the TNA World Title on Rob Van Dam right after RVD joined the company "from WWE." Styles said in the interview that he didn't understand the decision and said it sent a message to him that he's "just another guy."

Regarding the idea that some TNA wrestlers might pursue a WWE opportunity, Evan Bourne is an example of a wrestler who most people five years ago never would have believed would be in main event programs on WWE TV. Bourne has found success in WWE this year being spotlighted on Raw despite being a smaller, "X Division size" wrestler.

Some TNA wrestlers might believe the recent de-emphasis on a specific body type combined with WWE's youth movement forced by veterans beginning to age could open the door for them.

WWE/MMA News: Dave Batista on MMA transition - "I didn't like the direction of pro wrestling," talks WWE schedule, timetable for first MMA fight, more

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Former WWE wrestler Dave Batista says one of the main reasons he's making the transition to MMA is because he didn't like the direction of pro wrestling. Batista parted ways with WWE in May after being one of the top stars in the promotion to start the year.

"It wasn't like a sporadic thing. I've been thinking of it for a long time. Kind of following the footsteps of Brock (Lesnar) and Bobby Lashley. Before I get too old, I wanted to give it a try," Batista told Fight Magazine in an interview.

"I just really want to make that cross-over. I want to be a legitimate fighter. I didn't like the direction pro wrestling was going on. I want to legitimize myself as a mixed martial artists against true legit fighters. This is not like a joke to me; this is something I take real seriously."

Batista also talked about WWE's full-time schedule and the constant travel catching up to him physically. He said he's enjoying the MMA training schedule at the Cesar Gracie camp in California where he can focus on one thing and not be constantly on the road.

"The (MMA) training part is fun. I'm a physical guy. I love to train," he said. "The traveling and the wear and tear that comes along with professional wrestling is what takes a toll on you. I always tell people the hardest thing about professional wrestling is the travel. It just beats you up, man. Just dealing with traveling coast to coast and cramped up in tight spaces for hours, plus a lack of sleep (and) lack of good food. If I can center myself in one place for eight to ten weeks, that's a dream come true for me."

Despite a history of injuries during his pro wrestling career, Batista said he thinks he's very durable, which he believes will be a strength for him during his MMA career. "Resilient" might be a better word to describe Batista, who returned from several major muscle and ligament injuries during his WWE career.

"I'm real durable. I think I've proven that over the years in WWE; I think any professional wrestler is nothing else, durable," he said. "Brock has proved that. Bobby has proved that. I think a lot more fighters than you realize are also professional wrestlers. If there's one requirement in professional wrestling, it's durability. And I'm as durable as they come."

Batista said he has eight-to-ten more weeks of training at the Gracie camp before he signs a contract with Strikeforce. He said he's looking at early 2011 for a debut fight in MMA after missing a window of opportunity this year. Batista said he's also concentrating on TV and movie projects, including what he says is a "big budget" movie opportunity.

"Early 2011," Batista said when asked when he plans to have his first fight. "Negotiations are going good; it's just when we started talking, I had a very small opportunity leaving wrestling and being freed up from that and doing other projects. I have TV projects and movie projects. One is a really big priority for me because it's a big budget film. My window of opportunity closed. Now, we're looking to early 2011."

Batista also addressed skepticism of him making the transition and whether he has the chops to make it in MMA. "I'm legit. I'm a fighter. I want to learn how to be a professional fighter," he said. "I'm not coming in here like a celebrity. I don't mind earning people's respect. I don't expect to have it handed to me."

WWE News: Recap of Randy Orton's interview on TBS's "Lopez Tonight" tonight

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Appearing on TBS's "Lopez Tonight" show for a rare TV interview, WWE wrestler Randy Orton presented a completely different side of his personality than his customary "viper" TV character.

During his guest appearance tonight, Orton acknowledged he was a "hated villain" for six years on WWE TV and recently turned babyface. "I'm not used to this," he said. The reactions from the studio audience captured the WWE audience turning him babyface - males cheering their "Stone Cold" Steve Austin of this generation and women cheering him with his cool demeanor and relatable character.

Considering Orton's rare TV interview appearances, most WWE fans wouldn't have recognized Orton out-of-character in a sharp suit, smiling for the crowd, and having outbursts of laughter sharing stories on his WWE career and family life.

At the beginning of the interview segment, Orton strolled onto the set slapping hands with the studio audience while flashing his CEO-quality suit. Orton commanded the stage and received a strong babyface pop before beginning the back-and-forth interview discussion.

Comedian George Lopez, the host of the show and noted wrestling fan, introduced Orton as the youngest WWE champion at 24-years-old and said Orton will be challenging Sheamus for the WWE Title at Summerslam.

Orton and Lopez saved the discussion on Sheamus for late in the interview giving the final hard sell for Summerslam on Sunday. Orton talked up Sheamus as being a "big ol' boy" who is new to the business. He got a pop from the studio audience for doing a brief wrestler promo, with a grin, saying: "That doesn't mean I'm afraid of him."

During the back-and-forth, Orton talked about growing up in the business being a third-generation wrestler. He talked about his family being part of the WWWF, then WWF, and now he's in WWE.

They showed a picture of Orton's dad, "Cowboy" Bob Orton, posing. Orton also name-dropped Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Roddy Piper, and Paul Orndorff as wrestlers who used to come by his dad's house. This was followed by a picture of Andre holding a two-and-a-half-year-old Orton, which humanized Orton to continue making him relatable to the females in the crowd.

Orton then talked about his wife and small daughter watching him on Raw every Monday night if he's on the show early-enough. He shared a story that he's fourth in line behind Big Show, Sheamus, and John Cena with his daughter.

Orton said his daughter calls Cena "naked baby," even though Cena wears jean shorts and he wears the closest thing to a diaper, referring to him wrestling in athletic wrestling gear.

"John Cena, she calls naked baby, she calls herself naked baby, why can't I be naked baby?!" Orton said with a smile.

Orton and Lopez wrapped up the discussion, with Lopez giving a final plug for Summerslam in Los Angeles or on PPV on Sunday.

TNA News: Eric Bischoff refutes claim Hulk Hogan & Bischoff are leaving TNA

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Eric Bischoff is refuting claims made by an apparent Hulk Hogan imposter on Twitter that Hogan and Bischoff are leaving TNA.

There has recently been talk of Hogan creating an official Twitter page. Eric Bischoff linked to the apparent new Hogan page earlier today, which followed Hogan's close friend, Bubba the Love Sponge, linking to it on his Twitter page last night.

The apparent imposter "Hogan" posted today that Bischoff and he are departing TNA "on a mutual basis." Bischoff followed by saying on his Twitter that the Hogan account he linked to was fake and the claims were not true.

"The Hulk Hogan twitter posts are fake. Hulk IS in the process of setting up a page, but has not as yet. The rumors of us leaving TNA are bogus," Bischoff said after the posts were made.

The apparent imposter posted that it was "time to move on" from TNA. The posts from the account were removed shortly after they were made. The full text of what was posted, then pulled from the page, is below:

"I know you've heard the rumors brothers and they are true. Eric and I are leaving TNA on a mutual basis. I just got out of meetings now. It was really fun but time to move on. TNA has a new leadership coming in. Make sure you Hulkamaniacs still support them. TNA needs the power of Hulkamania to live on brothers. Thank you Dixie and Bob Carter for the wonderful and positive experiences in TNA. Nothing but the best to you guys. Brothers, this isn't the last of me though. You'll be able to see me at 'Hulk Hogan & Friends' events on tour soon."

WWE News: Chris Jericho talks Nexus vs. WWE feud & potential babyface turn, Kane interview on significance of World Title run

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

-- In an interview promoting Summerslam, WWE wrestler Chris Jericho talked up the current Nexus vs. WWE storyline on Raw as "genius." He said it's helped get over new talent and allowed him to show a different side of his character teasing a babyface turn.

"I think the Nexus angle has been genius," Jericho told Darren Wood of Slam Wrestling. "It is a tremendous idea that's really great because it's a bunch of new guys that on their own mean nothing, but together it's the hottest angle of the summer."

Regarding a potential babyface turn, Jericho said he believes he could make the fans cheer him if he wants to and the Nexus storyline has allowed him to play with the fans. He acknowledged his character is ambiguous at the moment, which he says is by design.

"I think the fans are asking themselves, 'Are we supposed to cheer him?' I have been doing this for 20 years. I have a lot of good will built up with the fans, people appreciate the hard work that I do so if I turned babyface tomorrow, they would buy it," Jericho said.

"I knew they would chant 'Y2J' when it was proposed I was going to team with (John) Cena; it's what WWE wants at this moment in time."
 

-- Theflickcast.com has an interesting interview with World Hvt. champion Kane from last month's Comic-Con convention.

Kane, out-of-character but still playing up TV storylines, talked about what it means to him receiving another World Title run as a reward for longevity in WWE.

"I think it's going to last a long time if I have anything to say about it. Actually, it's sort of a defining moment. The last time I won a championship, it was for one day," Kane said. I'm going to make sure it's a lot longer than that. This is what everyone works for in our business - a long championship run."

I actually see myself a few times in that. :lol: 

Now in my own defense, that shot (approx. the 2 minute mark, I'm on the right of my buddy with the hat) was taken shortly after Sabu made his "surprise appearance." I say that in quotes because I had found out a week earlier from the promotion's (http://www.wfxwrestling.com) VP that he was going to be there, and since he hooked me and my buddies up with practically half of the 2nd row, I said we'd play it up for the TV cameras. :D

EDIT: In case anyone was wondering, here's a link to the website of the promotion. It's a young company, having only started to produce actual shows within the last 6 months or so. The shows are being done quite well, and feature a lot of young local (Peg Sheety/Canadian) talent along with the more notable faces that most people are bound to recognize.

Former WWE wrestler Lance Cade dies at age 29

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Former WWE wrestler Lance Cade (Lance McNaught) reportedly died today at age 29. The news was originally reported at PWInsider.com.

Details on the cause of death are not known at this time. Cade battled prescription drug issues during his career, which reportedly factored into his release from WWE in October 2008 while in the middle of a major program with Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels.

Cade was re-signed to a developmental contract late last year and briefly worked at Florida Championship Wrestling. Cade was then released again in April.

Shawn Michaels ESPN interview - will he ever return?, when he decided to retire, "real" Vince McMahon, full-time schedule, much more

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Retired former WWE wrestler Shawn Michaels covered plenty of ground on his WWE career during a 45-minute interview with Bill Simmons on ESPN.com. The following are highlights from a highly-recommended interview with Michaels.

-- Michaels said there is "absolutely no chance" he will return to pro wrestling for another match. Michaels retired after WrestleMania 26 earlier this year in his final match against The Undertaker.

Michaels added that he decided before WrestleMania 25 and the epic match against The Undertaker last year that he wanted to have his final match at WrestleMania 26.

"I understand the skepticism with that (retiring), but I wouldn't have left unless I was ready for it," Michaels said. "I made the decision the month before WrestleMania 25. I didn't know how it was going to look, but knew WrestleMania 26 would be the last one."

Michaels continued: "The company was behind it. The ending, the story, everything was perfect. You don't get a bunch of chances like that in life. To come back and have another match would taint that moment. I watched the NBC special (airing last Saturday night) and I cried. It was beautiful. I wanted to create beautiful moments. The last one was the most beautiful moment I've ever been part of. There's absolutely no way I'll ever ruin that."

Michaels summed up why he was satisfied with the WrestleMania 26 match with Undertaker as his send-off: "I felt like it was a perfect portrayal of me - Shawn Michaels, the character, whatever - and everything he encapsulated, which was just trying so hard to achieve greatness, dare I say perfection, but falling short."

Asked at the beginning of the interview if he's "getting the itch" again, especially with Summerslam this weekend, Michaels said definitely that's not the case. He added that he's glad to be "on the other side" where he doesn't have to be nervous about a big performance.

Michaels also said his retirement wasn't related to being physically banged up. He said his satisfaction in the ring was story-telling and not moves, so he felt the story was complete at WrestleMania 26.

"I could walk back in there tomorrow and smoke about 70 percent of the locker room," Michaels said, with a laugh. "Yes, I'm beat up, but I never made a decision based on that."

-- Regarding future stars in WWE, Michaels stressed that it takes time to develop the next wave of stars, especially forcing the audience to remove the thought of "it's just not the same" when watching a new product compared to a previous product.

Michaels recalled being part of the "New Generation" in the 1990s when he felt the Clique could take the ball and run with it if given the chance. He said he senses the same feeling with the newer stars in WWE.

Michaels endorsed Randy Orton and John Cena as the leaders of the next wave of talent. He said he sees Orton having the same personality he had coming up where he "almost takes the job too seriously," but is getting the handle on the mental, not the physical aspect of wrestling.

"The things Undertaker and I did, technically, we didn't really do any moves people didn't see before. It's the mental side, painting the picture. Connecting from emotional standpoint," he said. "Too many guys are thinking about the physical aspect of it."

-- On his favorite wrestlers to work with, Michaels expectantly named Taker and Triple H. "They're the only two guys that he could make a mistake with and it would be okay. I put the trust of the match, story, etc. in their hands and let go of my control freakiness."

-- Asked about whether WWE needs to be reduced from a "12-month sport" to having an off-season or mandatory time off, Michaels hedged and suggested wrestlers should be in a position where they can ask for time off at any point and not fear losing a "spot."

"I'm a soldier. Maybe in the ring with another guy, I'm the general. I don't envy having to make those decisions. I know there's this unbelievable dynamic that is weekly TV, that is PPVs, shareholders, board members going, 'What about this?' I don't envy Vince (McMahon for having to balance all that," he said.

"As a performer, everyone used to joke with me that after WrestleMania, you're taking the summer off. I hear the complaints of, 'Well, you're Shawn Michaels. You can do that.' And losing their spot - I left for four years and when I came back, people told me, 'You have to reintroduce yourself.' Shawn Michaels didn't lose a spot; Shawn Michaels is a spot. It ruffles people the wrong way, but if guys go about their business the right way - the guys in the locker room don't control your ability, you control your ability."

-- Staying on the topic of wrestler health, Michaels was asked if bumps went too far in the 1990s when wrestlers were trying to top each other every night "raising the bar." Michaels said he thinks it's just part of their DNA as competitors and athletes. Michaels opted not to evaluate the potential risks that posed with wrestlers taking dangerous bumps that add up over time.

-- The interview concluded with Michaels describing Vince McMahon from his perspective after working with him for 25 years.

"I know the real man. I know the text that he sent me after that (NBC) special and he's a good man. People don't know him. It's why I walked through fire and walls for him. Not because he's some sort of crazed Hitler, but because there is a decent dude there," Michaels said. "He's got tough, tough decisions to make. I've watched him make them, weep, and struggle. I've seen him and walked with him for 25 years. That's my opinion of him. I will always be a WWE guy and proudly say it. I am a former WWE Superstar and damn proud of it."

-- Michaels also talked in-depth about his early days in WWE, the Montreal Screwjob and where he was personally at the time, his excruciating pain at WrestleMania 14 when he walked away from wrestling the first time due to injury, how his Christian faith has changed him and how the events in his life point to his faith, and many more topics.

Kurt Angle & former WWE wrestler named in steroid distribution list from mid-2000s released on Friday

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Current TNA wrestler Kurt Angle and former WWE wrestler Bob "Hardcore" Holly were named in a steroid distribution list from the mid-2000s that was released on Friday.

On Friday, a federal judge in Alabama handed down a four-year prison term to a pharmacist convicted of participating in the illegal sale and distribution of anabolic steroids.

Seven pro wrestlers were named in the list released on Friday. Angle and Holly's names were listed. Five others were only listed by initials.

J. Michael Bennett, who was supervising pharmacist at distributor Applied Pharmacy Services, was sentenced to the four-year prison term after being found guilty in a trial earlier this year.

According to court records, Applied Pharmacy Services shipped 762,388 dosages to 17 doctors and clinics from April 4, 2004 until August 30, 2006.

Angle and Holly were with WWE at the time. During most of that time period, WWE did not have a Wellness Policy to test for steroids. WWE launched their Wellness Policy in February 2006.

Also within the Applied Pharmacy timeline, Angle was released from his WWE contract at the end of August 2006. He then signed with TNA one month later.

Summerslam news & notes - two big returns, one title change, Team WWE vs. Team Nexus

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

The following are key news and notes from tonight's WWE Summerslam PPV.


-- Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) and The Undertaker were the two big surprise returns on the PPV.

Danielson returned to WWE as the seventh member of Team WWE in the main event elimination tag match. Danielson was eliminated after U.S. champion The Miz sneak-attacked him, setting up a feud to carry over on Raw that started on NXT Season One.

The Undertaker returned after World Hvt. champion Kane retained the World Title over Rey Mysterio. WWE essentially revealed that Kane put Taker in a "vegetative state" to set up the expected next World Title feud on Smackdown.

-- Team WWE went over Team Nexus in the main event tag match. John Cena scored the last final by submitting Wade Barrett. Cena was the last man left in the match. (Order and times of elimination in the match.)

-- The only title change on the PPV was Melina capturing the Divas Title from Alicia Fox. Lay-Cool (including Women's champion Layla) then attacked Melina after the match.

-- WWE champion Sheamus retained the WWE Title over Randy Orton via DQ, which will likely continue their feud and Orton's chase for the title.

-- Dolph Ziggler retained the Intercontinental Title in a match against Kofi Kingston. The match ended without a finish when Nexus jumped both men during the match.

-- In the dark match prior to the PPV, Evan Bourne beat Zack Ryder.

Charlie Haas tells his story on WWE release, describes WWE's handling of a serious neck injury

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Wrestling author Irv Muchnick published an important report on how WWE's medical team handled an injury to former WWE wrestler Charlie Haas earlier this year.

Haas, who was released in February, described WWE's handling of a neck injury he reportedly suffered during a match in January. An MRI revealed a "mild to moderate" herniation of two disks. According to Muchnick, Haas was told to "undergo physical therapy" or "consider major spinal fusion surgery."

The key passage in Muchnick's report reads:

Haas shipped the MRI images from his Dallas home to the Pittsburgh clinic of Dr. Joseph Maroon, WWE’s resident neurologist and medical director (who also works for the Pittsburgh Steelers and serves on the National Football League's now-discredited concussion policy committee).

In his only remark to me that could be termed directly critical of WWE, Haas said, “Maroon told me, ‘You had a stinger [a common and casual neck nerve irritation]. You’re good to go.’ And I’m thinking, ‘How can he make that diagnosis from Pittsburgh?’”

Haas had physical therapy but it didn’t take. On February 26, 2010, WWE cut him. He is a realist: he knows that he was always typecast as a “utility wrestler,’”technically skilled and able to make the top guys look good and to teach the younger guys how to work. As a non-main eventer, he was prone to release.


Considering Haas reportedly suffered the neck injury inside WWE's ring, WWE would be expected to foot the bill for medical costs, which former WWE CEO Linda McMahon has pointed out during her U.S. Senate campaign.

The New York Times reported in July: "While the company does not provide health coverage to its wrestlers, she said that it did pay for treatment of injuries that they sustained in the ring."

Legendary wrestling manager Skandor Akbar dies at age 75

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Long-time wrestling manager Skandor Akbar (Jim Wehba) has reportedly died at age 75. The cause of death is unknown at this time.

Akbar was still active in the wrestling business. He was advertised for the "Wrecking Ball Wrestling" promotion's upcoming show on Sunday afternoon in Texas.

Akbar is remembered by many wrestling fans as the top heel manager in Fritz Von Erich family's World Class Championship Wrestling promotion in the 1980s. Akbar famously managed the "Devastation, Inc." stable that fed heels to the babyface Von Erich brothers.

Earlier this month, Akbar was one of the Wrestling Legends appearing at the annual NWA Legends Fanfest in Charlotte, N.C. WWE's Jim Ross recently wrote about his interactions with Akbar at the Fanfest on jrsbarbq.com:

"General Scandor Akbar is now 75 and we had a great visit and talked road stories, he was one of my very first traveling partners along with Dan Hodge, and of course the OU-Texas football rivalry. Ak is a Longhorn devotee and that was the topic we engaged in over hundreds of miles of highway back in the '70s. Ak could squeeze blood out of a quarter and was so instrumental in helping me understand that no one makes too little money to not save some of it. The 'squatty fullback of the Vernon, Texas Lions will always be one of my favorite guys. Many don't know how instrumental Ak was in helping steer Steve Austin in the right direction early in Stone Cold's career in Dallas."
