smackdown-4
There’s no official word from WWE on how SmackDown moving back to Thursday nights will affect the international airings. The belief is Canada will also switch back to Thursdays. Some countries like Australia and the UK have been getting SmackDown almost a day early and that may no longer be possible due to timing. It’s also expected that NXT and Superstars, as well as other first-run WWE Network shows such as a season 2 of Legends House, will also be moved to a new night. Speculation within WWE is thatRead More

PWMania.com reported before that TNA released several office workers and merchandise frontman Jimmy Jay, who was the protege of Don West. The other merchandise worker, Dewey Barnes, was also let go. He previously appeared on TNA TV as an enhancement talent for Ethan Carter III. It was said that the TNA office crew was a “skeleton crew” to begin with. The office cuts were done because of budget reasons, like most recent TNA departures. (Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter)Read More

It’s going to be very hard for TNA not to spoil their Bound For Glory plans following the September 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th Impact Wrestling tapings in Bethlehem, PA. Since the September 5th and 6th shows in North Carolina were changed to One Night Only pay-per-view tapings, TNA will likely be taping only Impact episodes in Bethlehem. When those tapings are complete, they will have at least a month worth of post-Bound For Glory episodes taped. (Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter)Read More

TNA Impact Wrestling Results – August 27, 2014

We start off with a look back at last week’s controversial finish in the #1 contender’s match in Six Sides of Steel, and then we go to the Manhattan Center where Kurt Angle starts off the show! He runs down tonight’s card as EC3 will take on Rhino, and then the Hardyz, the Wolves, and Team 3D will go at it in the first match of the tag title series. He says we don’t have a #1 contender yet, but he’ll work it out with both Eric Young and BobbyRead More

- Triple H reportedly hated Solomon Crowe’s hacker gimmick in NXT and that has been dropped. The former Sami Callihan has also turned face and as noted last week, teamed with Kalisto at a NXT live event. – We noted before that released NXT star Shaun Ricker had some heat over social media and e-mails he had sent. One of the issues was how he re-tweeted many messages from fans about how he should be on TV. – Below are WWE attendance figures from the recent events in California: *Read More
ryback3
- While PWInsider’s sources do not believe Ryback is injured, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports Ryback suffered what was described as a lower body injury that is still being evaluated. He’s not expected to be out of action for a significant amount of time past September. – Zeb Colter has reportedly told people he’s injured from the stiff kick he took from Rusev at WWE SummerSlam but there’s also a story going around that he was injured outside the ring as well. – Randy Orton and Chris Jericho were offRead More
Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon was responsible for how strong John Cena was portrayed on this week’s WWE RAW. Vince wrote and put together all material for Cena this week. Vince reportedly felt that with Brock Lesnar dominating their match at SummerSlam, some of Cena’s fans may lose faith in him unless he made an immediate, strong statement on RAW. On a related note, the video package with Lesnar and Paul Heyman that aired on this week’s RAW was originally scheduled to air on the September 1st episode.

ronda-rousey
- As PWManiaa.com reported, UFC stars Jon Jones and Ronda Rousey, with The Four Horsewomen, were backstage at WWE SummerSlam in Los Angeles. Apparently there had been some ideas thrown around about doing something with The Four Horsewomen on pay-per-view but the ideas “fell on deaf ears” because the WWE decision makers don’t know much about UFC. There is a feeling within WWE that the company may make some kind of offer to Rousey in the future. – WWE will likely be allowing Prince Devitt to wrestle under his realRead More

WWE Nixes Plans To Bring Back Tough Enough For The WWE Network

We noted back in July that the new season of WWE Tough Enough, scheduled to be filmed at the Performance Center in Orlando, was being pushed back due to budget cuts. There had been talk of shooting the show in the fall but in recent weeks there were no discussions about filming. The budget for Tough Enough was heavily reduced this past week and then the show was scrapped altogether. No word yet if WWE will film the show at a later date but for now it’s not happening.

steve-austin4
- There haven’t been any complaints coming out of WWE over WrestleMania XXX payoffs. It was expected that with the WWE Network launching, WrestleMania bonuses would be drastically reduced. Steve Austin, The Rock and Hulk Hogan were paid a flat fee for their segment at WrestleMania XXX, instead of the usual deal top stars get based on a percentage. This was done because they weren’t pushed ahead of time and did not work a match. – Former NFL star Shawne Merriman had been training to be a wrestler and anRead More
