WWE Removes Cruiserweight Championship!

- WWE has quietly removed the Cruiserweight Championship from the SmackDown superstars page on the official WWE web site. It is unknown whether or not WWE dropped the title altogether or just took it off of because there is no current Cruiserweight Championship with Hornswoggle moving to RAW.

Smackdown Spoilers - 10/30/07

From memory...

Batista opened the show, cutting a promo on how he's done alot of shit... faced alot of adversity in both his real life and his WWE career. But Sunday he did something he thought he might not be able to do, defeat the Undertaker. Then he asked if he could trust Taker tonight in their tag match (Taker / Bats vs. Henry / Khali)... lights went off with a gong and when they came back Taker was in the ring. Taker said Batista can trust him because he still holds what he wants, looking at the title. Batista agreed to a rematch, Taker made it a hell in a cell at whatever the next ppv is (survivor series??). Khali and Henry came out and said they were better teammates then their opponents.

Festus def. Domino

Vicky ran into Jamie Noble and gave him a Mysterio dvd. A very PARANOID Noble (new gimmick) asked why and she said it was because he would be going one on one with him later.

Mysterio beat Noble clean after a really good match... Finlay was doing commentary and got on the mic after the match to tell Mysterio he smelled his fear or something and would beat him next week.

There was a segment with MVP and Matt Hardy but the volume wasn't working.

Kane def. MVP clean (non title). After the match Big Daddy V killed Kane.

Henry and Khali translate some bullshit to each other to hype the match.

Mick Foley def. Coach with Hornswoggle as the referee. They did the "Mr. McMahon is the referee" gag which made Coach happy until the predictable Hornswoggle appearance. Not sure if this is gonna make TV or if it was just a match for the fans since Foley is from Long Island.

Chuck Palumbo def. Kenny Dykstra clean. Palumbo as a biker or something with McCool while Dykstra was escorted by Victoria (mmmmm).

Batista / Undertaker def. Henry / Khali via DQ. I don't remember exactly how this match ended but it had to do with the heels intentionally DQ'ing themselves after Batista had Henry primed for a Batista bomb. Everyone was all WTF NO WAY when he was setting it up. post match the heels obliterated the champ and number one contender via boring finishing moves.

Dumb show... didn't bother sticking for all of ECW.

Could Jericho be returning tonight at the Smackdown taping?

He may have spent most of his life living in Winnipeg, but World Wrestling Entertainment writers just didn't like the idea of wrestling hero Chris Jericho being billed from the Great White North.

"They didn't want guys to be from Canada if they were good guys," said Jericho, 37, recalling the policy change about three years ago. "So I said, 'Why don't you just say Manhasset?' That's at least where I was born."

Tonight promises to be a homecoming on two different fronts for Jericho. Not only will he be signing copies of his recently published memoirs, "A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex" at the Carle Place Barnes & Noble at 5 p.m., but he is rumored to be making his return to the ring after a two-year hiatus at the Nassau Coliseum for a taping of WWE's "Smackdown!" program.

"I never had any intentions of retiring. I just needed to take a step back," said Jericho, who spent his time off touring with his band, Fozzy, and doing some acting. But Jericho said writing a book, "helped me to remember the passion and the love that I had for the [wrestling] business."

"A Lion's Tale," which details Jericho's journey from a childhood Hulk Hogan fan through honing his craft in Mexico, Japan and, eventually, making it to the WWE, has drawn solid early reviews, including from Publishers Weekly, which called the book "Funny, insightful and compulsively readable."

Tonight's WWE event is the first on Long Island since controversy struck WWE when authorities say Chris Benoit killed his wife, son and himself in June. Jericho writes plenty about his close friend and mentor, in his book, which he completed more than a month before the deaths. In an addendum, Jericho addresses the incident, but otherwise left his remembrances of Benoit intact.

"He was involved so much in my life and especially in my early career, that you couldn't just edit this guy out," said Jericho. "It would be compromising my story."

Jericho, who moved to Canada when he was 5, has few memories of growing up on Long Island, but said performing here is always special.

"It's still always neat to see these words on a street sign of "Manhasset," and know that's what's on my birth certificate."

Eve Torres Wins 2007 Divasearch

The votes are in and Eve Torres is the winner of the 2007 WWE Diva Search! Learn all about your new Diva and check out complete coverage of the competition.

WWE Cyber Sunday Results

- The WWE promo hits.

- A video package airs showing the importance of the fan voting behind the Cyber Sunday concept.

- A graphic opening then welcomes us to Cyber Sunday as we go live to the Verizon Center. A display of pyro goes off as well.

- Rey Mysterio defeated Finlay in a Stretcher Match. The stretcher stipulation got 40% of the vote to the Shillelagh on a Pole Match and the No DQ Match. Fans in Washington, D.C. were really behind Mysterio and Finlay got some great heel heat. The object here is to put your opponent on the stretcher and push him to the finish line. A shillelagh ended up getting involved in the match with Finlay using it on Mysterio. The finish saw Mysterio hit the 619 on Finlay knocking him onto the stretcher at ringside followed by a big flip dive on Finlay over the stretcher. As Mysterio was wheeling Finlay to the finish line, the stretcher got caught on some cable cord. Looks like both improvised big time at this point as Finlay got off the stretcher, but got knocked back on it and Mysterio wheeeled him to the finish to get the win.

- As noted on, they are continuing the speculation that Matt Hardy won't be competing tonight against MVP after suffering an injury on Smackdown. They showed post-match photos of Hardy who was clearly banged up and required stitches to his forehead. They show MVP confronting Matt backstage saying he agreed with the medical professionals on not clearing him to compete tonight. Hardy said he still wanted to compete. MVP said he heard a decision has already been made for his opponents tonight to either be Mark Henry, The Great Khali or Kane with the WWE U.S. Title on the line.

- At ringside, JBL was shown wearing a referee outfit saying the voting is close tonight. Voting is also available on for tonight's U.S. Title Match involving MVP defending against either Mark Henry, The Great Khali or Kane.

- A backstage promo was shown of Victoria and Kenny Dykstra dressed as Mr. Fuji and Yokozuna for Halloween.

- CM Punk defeated The Miz to retain the ECW Championship. The Miz won 39% of the vote. Gotta say this was a big shock here. Lots of ground wrestling early on between the two, which might have been an indicator that they didn't think the voting was going to go this way at all. Fans in Washington, D.C. where chanting "YOU CAN'T WRESTLE" at The Miz. Despite the fan reaction, the match wasn't all that bad. Punk hit a quick bulldog on Miz that resulted in a two count. The finish saw Punk get the win with the Go To Sleep to retain the title.

- Backstage, Mickie James was shown wearing a Native American costume, while Torrie Wilson was wearing a Washington Redskins jersey.

- A video package aired looking at the current WWE Title situation.

- Shawn Michaels won 59% of the vote to face Randy Orton tonight for the WWE Title. They announced the two losers would face each other in a singles match next.

- Mr. Kennedy defeated WWE Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy in a Non-Title Bonus Match. Hardy sent Kennedy to the floor early on in the match, with Hardy taking out Kennedy by leaping over the top rope. Hardy took out Kennedy with a quick huricanranna back in the ring. Kennedy blocked a Twist of Fate attempt only to get the Whisper in the Wind. The finish, which went down rather quickly, saw Hardy miss a dropkick and hit his head on the mat allowing Kennedy to cover for the quick pinfall.

- Backstage, Michelle McCool is dressed as Eve, while Melina is dressed like a Las Vegas showgirl.

- A JBL video aired (very political like and rather funny) to get fans to vote for him. Mick Foley also went for the fans vote as well tonight with the classic "yeah!" line at the end.

- Kane won 67% of the vote to earn a shot at the WWE U.S. Title against MVP.

- Kane defeated WWE U.S. Champion MVP via countout - MVP retains the U.S. Title. The match started with MVP avoiding Kane early on. Kane sent MVP into the ring post and started working on his ribs. Kane continued to work on his ribs with numerous punches, knees and kicks. The finish saw MVP simply roll out and fall to the floor and accept the countout finish. The crowd didn't seem to like this finish and who would for $40?

- Another "Save_Us" video aired.

- Promo for Survivor Series on November 18 aired.

- Backstage, Layla is dressed as a cop and Kelly Kelly is dressed up like a gangster.

- Backstage, WWE Champion Randy Orton talked about his upcoming title defense against Shawn Michaels. A video aired of Orton taking out HBK in the past and how tonight would be no different.

- Shawn Michaels defeated WWE Champion Randy Orton via DQ; Orton retains the WWE Title. Early on, Orton caught HBK with a big uppercut. They started exchanging blows in the ring until Orton took HBK down and started working on his left elbow that was taped up. HBK got a close pinfall after after counting a back drop attempt by Orton. Orton then got in a series of offense on HBK with a quick backbreaker. HBK responded with an flying elbow off the top, but Orton moved. HBK countered an RKO attempt by Orton into a close backslide pin. HBK finally connected with the flying elbow. HBK started to tune up the band as the fans got behind him. The finish saw HBK go for the Sweet Chin Music, but Orton ducked and low blowed HBK to cause the DQ. After the match, Orton looked to kick HBK in the head to put him out of action again until HBK jumped up to his feet and connected with the Sweet Chin Music on Orton.

- We saw a shot of Brooke dressed as Jane (from the jungle) and Jillian Hall is dressed as Britney Spears. Jim Ross called this the worst Halloween costume contest ever.

- A promo for WrestleMania 24 on March 30, 2008 aired. Tickets go on sale this Saturday.

- The Street Fight stipulation won with 57% of the vote for Triple H vs. Umaga tonight. The crowd in Washington, D.C. didn't like this and obviously wanted to see a Steel Cage.

- Triple H defeated Umaga in a Street Fight Match. The match started right away with both brawling at the entrance area when Umaga came out second. The action spilled into the audience a bit until they both made it to the ringside area. Triple H brought in a trash can and cracked it over the head of Umaga. They brawled to the outside again and Umaga sent Triple H into the steel steps. Umaga tried to use a steel chair on Triple H, but Triple H caught Umaga with a low blow followed by giving Umaga a DDT over the chair. Umaga went to the outside and removed the top of the announce tables at ringside. Umaga took out Triple H with a splash through the ECW announce table. The action spilled back into the ring and Umaga attempted a splash, but Triple H moved. The finish saw Triple H get a sledgehammer on the outside. Once inside, Umaga attempted a Samoan Spike but missed. Triple H caught Umaga with the sledgehammer followed by a Pedigree and got the pinfall. Very good match.

- Plug for the 500th anniversary issue of WWE magazine.

- Todd Grisham revealed the winner of the Halloween costume voting. Mickie James won with 21%.

- They showed a video highlight package of the Batista-Undertaker feud.

- 13,189,061 votes were casted world wide, claimed Grisham.

Ref voting:
Steve Austin - 79%
Mick Foley - 11%
JBL - 10%

JBL interrupted the voting results, and climbed into the ring. Mick Foley came down the ring. Austin was declared the winner, but Foley and JBL brawled in the ring. Outcame Austin. Austin stuns Foley, but receives a clothesline by JBL. JBL went for the clothesline from hell, but Austin countered with a stunner.

World title match: Batista vs. The Undertaker (with Austin as the referee).

With JBL out of commission, The King has joined Cole in the Smackdown booth. Cole said this is Undertaker-Batista's fourth title match this year. Undertaker went atop to do the old school top rope walk, but Batista punched him to counter. Vintage Undertaker with a leg drop on the ring apron across Batista's neck. Batista caught Undertaker's vintage top rope walk/drop, and hit a spinbuster on the challenger. Chokeslam by Undertaker, but Batista kicked out. Spear by Batista, but only a two count. Last Ride by Undertaker, but it took alot of Undertaker. Two count, again. Spinbuster by Batista, but again, only two. Undertaker bounced back up on the mat. Batista bomb, but 2 1/2, and Taker kicks out.

A second Batista bomb, and Batista scores the pinfall victory at 17:25.

Show over.

Update on the Jericho, WWE Viral Campaign, Cyber Sunday situation.

First and foremost, go check out, or Look at the countdown clock. Where it is right now, has it ending at 10:30pm tonight. So it's pretty much a lock that something is going down post-WWE title match tonight. Whether it's Jericho or not is still kind of up in the air. Check out this interview he did with the Long Island Press:
Here's what Jericho said about a WWE return:

You know, I can honestly say that I don't know for sure when, but I will tell you as well that even if I did I'm a magician. I keep my secrets and my tricks to myself, and I like that. I think it's one of the things I've always enjoyed about wrestling. And once again, going back to the way I was when I was a fan, I don't think it's fair or good for fans to know everything. And as much as it's great to have technology and it's cool that people know [more], I think it's also cool when people don't know, and that's something I've worked very hard to make sure's still good to be surprised. And I think that everyone will agree with me that in a day and age where people know things before they happen, I don't think that anyone is going to know my story until it happens. And I think people in a vacuum would rather have it that way.
So where does that leave tonight? It's entirely possible that the clock could be Edge, though it wouldn't make much sense at all. All signs have pointed to Jericho from day one, so for it to be anyone other than him would be really be shocking. I'll be disappointed if it's just Edge. WWE needs someone like Jericho back, more than they need Edge to return early. Plus, I can't see them devoting a campaign like this to Edge.

On the topic of the viral campaign, and more importantly the websites I posted up top, check out this article I came across.

-- We have very interesting news, more evidence that Chris Jericho is returning soon. Based on information gathered from a WHOIS search, and are registered to Joseph Perkins from Entertainment Services based out of Stamford, CT.

Joseph Perkins is a director for WWE. The following is news release from 2000 mentioning Perkins:

Joseph Perkins has been a Director since 1999 and is a member of the Audit and Compensation Committees. Mr. Perkins was a pioneer in the television syndication of wrestling matches and is President of Communication Consultants, Inc.

Now with the link with Perkins, WWE, and the SAVE_US domain websites it clearly is an indication that they have major plans for Chris Jericho's return. From my knowledge after studying years of marketing, it looks like the WWE marketing department has found other methods of advertisement instead of the traditional on-air Titontron with the Save_Us.222 and Save_Us.x29. It is something like what the team at Transformers did with the sector 7 website. Same idea but marketing a completely different product.

Now as many of you know, rumors have surfaced for a month or so that Chris Jericho is making his return to WWE. What I just reported is something to take into consideration but nothing is guaranteed. However, one thing is for sure. If they put so much time and effort to creating websites and putting links on to the save_us campaign, it will be something huge.
To say WWE don't have their creative minds in the right place with this would be wrong. They're doing a great job, and I just hope they pull through at the end, and don't have an 11th hour screw up. I'd expect tonight's pay per view to have massive buyrates. People want to see where this is ending.

Stone Cold bashes TNA on! posted an interesting article today with Stone Cold Steve Austin interviewing actor and former WCW Champion David Arquette. Arquette's WCW title reign is considered by many to be the epitome of the company's ineptitude during its final days.

As if David Arquette being interviewed on isn't strange enough, Stone Cold actually mentions TNA Wrestling in one of his questions. Austin asked Arquette:

"Knowing wrestling like you do, being in WCW for a little bit and now seeing the business today with really only WWE around — you’ve got some stuff in TNA but no major stars — who is your favorite guy going right now?"

It is very rare that WWE mentions rival promotion TNA Wrestling in any way.

Despite what Stone Cold says about TNA, their weekly television show iMPACT! draws ratings that are comparable to ECW on Sci Fi. As far as TNA having no major stars, Austin seems to have a short memory. He dropped the WWE Championship to TNA's top star Kurt Angle at Unforgiven 2001.

UPDATE: has removed the reference to TNA. Austin's question now reads: "Knowing wrestling like you do, being in WCW for a little bit and now seeing the business today with really only WWE around, who is your favorite guy going right now?"

Lillian Garcia's Album Bombs!

Source: Nielson Soundscan

WWE ring announcer released her debut solo album last week titled "Quiero Vivir!". Despite making many live appearances and having the WWE promotional machine behind her, the album's first week sales were disastrous.

Nielson Media Research, the company responsible for measuring and reporting television viewership ratings, has a subsidiary company called "Soundscan" that tracks the sales of music albums.

Soundscan reports that Lilian Garcia's new CD didn't even break the Top 200, selling less than 3,800 units. The number 200 on this week's list sold 3,897.

Dave Meltzer is reporting that Matt Hardy suffered a 7 inch gash that required 35 stitches to lose last night in Kansas City at the TV tapings.

He was giving Rey Mysterio a splash mountain and Mysterio's knee brace caught him in the head. He was bleeding buckets and they had to stop the show to change the mat because of all the blood. At this point, his status for Cyber Sunday is uncertain.

Chris Jericho has been interviewed on several radio shows in the past week to promote his upcoming book release. During the interviews, Jericho has been asked about his heavily rumored return to WWE. Each time, Jericho responds with vaugue and even misleading statements.

Contrary to what Jericho would like us to believe, reliable sources confirm that the plan is for Jericho to return to WWE at Cyber Sunday. However, if USA Network President Bonnie Hammer has her way, Jericho will return on an episode of RAW before the Pay-Per-view.

Bonnie Hammer has been very outspoken to WWE management about RAW's declining ratings. She has made countless storyline suggestions to WWE's creative team, none of which have been used.

Exclusive: Armageddon Poster Revealed!

Pay-Per-View provider inDemand has released the promotional poster for the final pro wrestling PPV event of 2007 - WWE Armageddon.

Armageddon takes place on Sunday night, December 16th from the Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The event is sponsored by the videogame "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare".

The poster features World Heavyweight Champion Batista standing tall with his belt in front of a destroyed city. If this poster is any indication, it looks like Batista will be successfully defending the title at Cyber Sunday and Survivor Series.

HUGE News for UFC: Brock Lesnar signed

During the UFC PPV tonight, former WWE champion and Wrestlemania XIX main eventer Brock Lesnar was seated in the front row. He was later interviewed by Joe Rogan and introduced as the latest signee for the Ultimate Fighting Championships.

Lesnar made his Mixed Martial Arts debut this past summer, defeating Min Soo Kim in only 1:09 of the first round on June 2, 2007 at the K-1 Dynamite USA show in Los Angeles. Lesnar easily took down Kim and pummeled him with strikes for the win. Lesnar, who is expected to fight in UFC's depleted heavyweight division (Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture announced he was leaving UFC last week) told Rogan he was "ready for war".

After a monster push that included several WWE title reigns and victories over The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Big Show and main eventing Wrestlemania in his first-ever appearance on the WWE's flagship PPV, Lesnar walked out of the company in 2004 to attempt an NFL career. When he was cut from the Minnesota Vikings training camp, Lesnar turned down an offer to play for the NFL's European division. He worked briefly for New Japan Pro Wrestling, including a short run as IWGP champion before starting to train in MMA.

Lesnar has not wrestled professionally in the United States since his WWE departure, but did have brief negotiations with TNA several months back. His last professional wrestling bout was a loss to his Wrestlemania XIX main event opponent Kurt Angle during the debut of Antonio Inoki's IGF promotion in Japan, unofficially losing the IWGP title he won in New Japan (and later vacated, although he kept possession of the title belt).

There was no announcement as to Lesnar's first UFC fight.

We're told there was a major scare in his hotel room in San Francisco. Luger was in town for the huge fanfest this weekend.

The hospital will not confirm anymore details for us. There are different reports this evening on whether he had a heart attack or a stroke.

John Cena to be a Celebrity Apprentice?! is reporting that former WWE Champion John Cena will take part in NBC’s upcoming Celebrity Apprentice series. The accuracy of the report is already being questioned as many close to the industry feel that Cena will be dedicated completely to rehabbing his torn pectoral muscle, not taking part in a reality series. Hopefully we will have further clarification on this later today.

According to, UFC fighter Tito Ortiz will also be part of the cast alongside Gene Simmons and Carol Alt.

HBK & Vince Have Major Altercation


Vince McMahon has a history of singling people out backstage and embarrassing them in front of other wrestlers. Last Monday when Shawn Michaels was the target of Vince's juvenile behavior, it blew up in Vince's face and left even Stephanie McMahon speechless.

Despite the fact that Shawn Michaels returned to WWE a month ahead of schedule, he still has heat with Vince. Shawn made it clear before he returned that he wants more control over his schedule. He won't be doing any overseas tours and will work a somewhat reduced schedule so he can spend more time with his family.

When Shawn showed up to RAW last Monday for the first time since his injury, Vince started "chewing him out" in front of the lockerroom. He made fun of Shawn's attitude and his clothing, among other things. To the surprise of everybody, HBK fired back at Vince and put him in his place. Shawn made it very clear to Vince in front of everybody that he won't be disrespected by anybody or treated like a rookie.

The wrestlers were shocked that somebody finally stood up to one of Vince's tirades. According to our source, nobody was more shocked than Stephanie McMahon. Witnesses were reportedly amused that Shawn humbled Vince in front of everybody. The McMahon's are not necessarily disliked by the roster but this definitely brought Vince down off his high horse.

Shawn and Vince have had a volatile relationship for well over a decade. There is no indication that this incident will have any ramifications on Shawn's WWE status.

Booker T Releases Statement Regarding Release!

As reported and confirmed by WWE earlier today, Booker T and Sharmell's release from World Wrestling Entertainment is effective October 27. These releases had been expected by some even before Booker's 60-day drug suspension from the company. It should also be noted that the decision was made by Booker and Sharmell to leave the company and not WWE.

Lic. Manuel R. Batista passed on a link to a statement by Booker T on his official website regarding his and Sharmell's release from WWE effective October 27:


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

Death drop by Sting and still wins at 18:27 by covering a bloody Angle to win the TNA world title. A bloody Sting holds up the TNA world title belt.

World Heavyweight Title Match @ Cyber Sunday Announced

Following the airing of last night’s edition of SmackDown, WWE has announced Batista vs. Undertaker for the World Heavyweight Championship at their upcoming Cyber Sunday pay-per-view. The fans will be able to choose the special referee as choices include Mick Foley, Steve Austin, and JBL. The match was originally scheduled to be a Fatal Four Way match with various combinations of Undertaker, Great Khali, Mark Henry, Finlay, and Rey Mysterio challenging Batista for the title, however, WWE opted to go with the singles match.

This match is going to be a tough one to call, but I have a feeling that this match is going to end in a DQ or Countout finish. I really dont see one one going over on this night.

Shelly "Ariel" Martinez Porn Movie

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer broke the story last week that Shelly Martinez (best known as former ECW Vixen "Ariel") has agreed to do a porn movie for "Platinum Jewel", porn star Jewel De'Nyle's production company.

Since then, there's been a ton of speculation and misinformation about what Shelly Martinez' future holds.

According to pornstar Jewel De’Nyle, Shelly has agreed to star in a "solo fetish film" for Platinum Jewel - De’Nyle’s production company.

Jewel De'Nyle stated that Shelly Martinez was not up for a hardcore movie, but might be willing “to do a solo Bettie Page fetish type movie just starring her doing different set ups with stockings, boots, heels, whips etc.”

More recently, De'Nyle confirmed: "I landed Shelly Martinez so I’m happy with this she will be doing a solo fetish type movie for me."

Shelly Martinez broke her silence yesterday with a blog entry on her official MySpace page. "Porn Rumors: There is a HUGE difference between porn and Bettie Page fetish style shoots that is all I have to say"

Shelly Martinez will be at TNA's Bound For Glory PPV this weekend and will wrestle in the Women's Gauntlet Match to crown TNA's first "Knockout Champion".

Breaking News: UFC's Randy Couture Retires!

Source: Yahoo! Sports

In a story that has shocked the mixed martial arts world, UFC Heavyweight Champion and commentator Randy "The Natural" Couture has announced his retirement, surrendered his championship title and several all ties with the company.

Here are the details from Yahoo! Sports columnist Kevin Iole:

- Sean O'Heir, the spokesman of Couture's company "Xtreme Couture MMA", said Thursday that the UFC Hall of Famer had vacated his championship and resigned as an analyst on UFC television broadcasts.

- O'Heir said Couture was hoping for a fight to be made against Fedor Emelianenko, who is the top-ranked mixed martial artist in the Yahoo! Sports poll. Reports surfaced Tuesday that Emelianenko had signed with a new promoter, M-1.

- Regarding the realization that Couture's dream match with Fedor is now more unlikely than ever, O'Heir said "[Randy] was disappointed when he couldn't get a fight with Fedor. That would have been his legacy fight."

WWE Releases Teddy Hart!

Steve Gerweck of is reporting that WWE has released developmental talent Teddy Hart. Hart, a member of the famous Hart family, had been working in both WWE’s Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling developmental territories. He was scheduled to be brought up to the main WWE roster sometime next month with the New Hart Foundation.

While we do not have immediate details on his release nor an official confirmation from WWE, the behavior of Teddy Hart has been a problem in the past. All reports had indicated that things were going well for Hart and that he was slated to be called up. We will post more details as soon as they become available.


To update you guys on an earlier report, the word going around today is that Teddy Hart was indeed by let go by World Wrestling Entertainment. Details regarding his departure haven't come out yet though.

Furthermore, due to Hart's departure from the company, it appears as though that the planned New Generation Hart Foundation angle has been scrapped as well. Seeing how he's the only person with the last name Hart, he was the main person needed for them to do the faction.

As late as last week, plans were in place for Hart, Nattie Neidhart, Harry Smith and Ted DiBiase Jr. to debut in WWE next month as the new Hart Foundation. They were going to work some house shows next month, and more than likely be called up to the main roster. What with Hart's departure, it looks like it's back to the drawing board for Neidhart, Smith and DiBiase Jr

WWE: New Hart Foundation targets HBK?

It’s been well known to all fans (at least those who keep up on wrestling gossip) that the WWE plans to debut a new Hart Foundation in the WWE, most likely on the Smackdown brand. The group would consist of Harry Smith, T.J. Wilson, Teddy Hart and Ted DiBiase Jr. The news breaking out today is that this group may get Uncle Bret’s revenge on ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels, 10 years after the infamous Montreal Screwjob.

It’s being reported now that the current plan is for them to start up around November, as they’re booked for the November 6th taping of Smackdown. The talk right now is for them to make their pay per view debut at Survivor Series and attack Shawn Michaels. However, there’s a chance of it not happening as well due to lack of experience and Teddy Hart’s immaturity issues.

Of course, another issue to think about is that right now, they are currently booked for the Smackdown brand and Shawn Michaels is on the RAW brand. Anything can happen from now until then, such as the Smackdown taping appearance being canceled and of course, HBK being moved over to Smackdown right before or even sometime after this Survivor Series attack takes place. Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing this all happen (except I wouldn't want HBK on the Smackdown brand) but in my opinion it should be done sometime down the road when the group does have more experience. It makes sense for the Hart Foundation to want to attack HBK, probably makes more sense than any other storyline WWE could do due to the real life issues but unless both sides are completely for it and are mature about it, as well as having all the Hart Foundation members actually being READY for it, I don’t want it to take place. Perhaps what they should do is debut on Smackdown and always talk about a “mission” they need to accomplish and how they need to work hard on Smackdown in order to get to that mission. Of course, that would be, get drafted over to Raw eventually and THEN take the opportunity to seek out revenge. That is, however, just my opinion of this rumor.

ECW Title Match @ Cyber Sunday Announced

World Wrestling Entertainment has announced another match for this month’s WWE Cyber Sunday PPV. CM Punk will be defending his ECW Championship against the fans choice of Big Daddy V or The Miz or John Morrison.

Its pretty much a 100% guarantee that John Morrison will be facing CM Punk and will be walking away with the ECW Title. CM Punk was just supposed to be a place holder until John Morrison got back from suspension and with the ECW ratings not getting any better, you can bet Vince is blaming CM Punk for that, and not the shitty storylines he allows on ECW programming.

Ric Flair sues Car Dealership!

According to a lawsuit filed in federal court, which you can read here, Freedom Suzuki is using a character named Captain Freedom, who bears a resemblance to Flair (real name Richard Fliehr) and even mentions him by name. The character uses two of Flair's signature slogans -- "Whoeee!" (which sounds like his "Woooo!") and "to be the man, you have to beat the man." Flair has been using those lines both in and out of the ring for years.

The lawsuit goes on to say that the company approached Flair earlier this year about a deal to use his name and likeness in advertising, but an agreement was never reached -- and Flair never agreed to have his name or image used. Flair is now asking for the dealership to pull the ads and is seeking unspecified damages.

Timothy St. Clair, a lawyer for dealership, tells reporters, "The complaint was just filed Thursday and we are reviewing it and we will respond on the merits in the lawsuit."

Cyber Sunday Mainevent Changed!

The original main event for Cyber Sunday was scheduled to be John Cena vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Championshpi with fans deciding the stipulation: Hell In A Cell, No-DQ or Falls Count Anywhere. After Cena's injury, WWE announced that Triple H would replace Cena and challenge Orton. That match has been scrapped and there is a NEW main event.

WWE fans have the chance to decide who Randy Orton will defend his newly won title against. The choices are Shawn Michaels, Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy and Mr. Kennedy.

WWE Cyber Sunday
takes place Sunday night October 28th from Washington, D.C.

More on the Pending Return of Chris Jericho to the WWE.

It's already been a very busy month for wrestling news and there's no question that Chris Jericho's possible return to WWE is one of the top stories right now. London's Daily Star newspaper interviewed the former WWE superstar and asked him to address those rumors.

Here's what Chris Jericho said about returning to WWE:

You never know. I did it before and I can do it again. I've been gone for two years and that's a lifetime in wrestling. I seem to be caught in a controversial buzz at the moment. I'm a little confused as there's a lot of speculation but as always in these situations I'm the last to know.

These stories seem to swim around every three to four months since I left WWE. It's good to know fans are bringing my name up - there's nothing wrong with people talking about Chris Jericho. I always said if I were to go back I would only go if I could make a difference and be better than ever.

I don't have to come back at all, certainly not financially. I want to have some fun, be different and be better. I walked away on my own terms, so it's good to see I still have as much leeway two years later.

WWE No Mercy Recap, Review, and Thoughts by RV

Well this is the first time I sat and watched a WWE program in quite some time. Mainly because Cena is no where to be found. Thanks god. Anyways on with the thoughts on each match...

Orton vs HHH Part 1.
Groaned big time, yaa hoo HHH title reign again woop de fuckin do, but I knew the night was far from over so I stayed optimistic.

Kennedy Cade and Murdoch vs Jeff Hardy Kendrick and London.
Bagh. Kennedy kicks ass but WWE fuckin threw him away. Way to go WWE. Jeff Hardy is fat. And you can obviously tell his high flying days are over. Ho hum match.

CM Punk vs Big Daddy V.
CM Punk is the most overrated fuckass out of the bunch. Why are so many people going crazy over him? He has a fucking Pepsi tattoo for gods sake. And V needs a fucking bra to support those extra large deep dish pizza tits.

Matt Hardy vs MVP Pizza Eating Contest
Re. Tard. Ed.

HHH vs Umaga.

Rey Mysterio vs Finlay.
Interesting finish but having a no contest ending at something I paid 40 bucks to watch is fucking stupid.

Beth Phoenix vs Candice.
Beth Phoenix looks like Chyna and Molly Holly had a baby.

Batista vs Khali.
Holy fucking shit talk about boring. Michael Cole said the most retarded line ever when Khali was on his way to the ring. "Khali is my odds on favorite to regain the world title." Um being that Khali is the only challenge in the match that by default makes him an odds on favorite since he is the only one that can regain the title. Moron. And I love how JBL and Cole hyped up this TERRIFYING AND HORROR OF A MATCH that was slow, boring and had no blood. How can something with RAZOR SHARP SPIKES producer not a single drop of blood? Worst match ever.

Orton vs HHH Part 2.
Fucking finally an interesting and decent damn main event on a PPV. Thank fucking GOD! Orton is the new champ, Cena is gone. All is well in the kingdom again.

Closing Thoughts.
Glad Orton is the champ. Cena being gone made the PPV more interesting to watch. Would have been nice to have a Jericho tease at the very end since that was the main reason I ordered this. All in all. I will be tuning into Raw tomorrow. Hopefully ratings will go up in Cenas absence and WWE will see how much people hate him.
