Mike Johnson is reporting that former WCW World champion Lex Lugar is still hospitalized at Stanford University Hospital in Palo Alto, California. Fortunately he did not suffer a heart attack or stroke, but was suffering from an infection that caused a nerve impingement in his central nervous system.
He is currently still undergoing intravenous antibiotic treatment and is expected to make a full recovery. On behalf of everyone here at the site, we certainly wish Lex the best!

UNITED KINGDOM – After invading the Land of the Extreme earlier in the week, Kane returned to Friday Night SmackDown to face The Great Khali. Wasting little time, The Punjab Giant gave the Big Red Monster a not-so-warm welcome back, getting disqualified for using a cable to try and decimate Kane. As Kane recovered from the attack by Khali, ECW’s Big Daddy V made his way to the ring, looking for retribution against the Big Red Monster for his involvement as CM Punk’s partner on ECW on Sci Fi. The Dominating Force in WWE laid waste to Kane, and made it known that the working partnership between SmackDown’s Acting GM Vickie Guerrero and ECW’s man in charge, Armando Estrada, has opened the gates for his personal path of destruction. WATCH Big Daddy V wreak havoc on Kane...
After griping to GM Vickie Guerrero about having to face Khali last week, and stating that if Theodore Long were in charge he would never have had to face the Punjab Giant, Jamie Noble was given another worthy opponent – Undertaker. The young cruiserweight pleaded his case, hoping to avoid a confrontation with The Deadman, but to no avail. As The Phenom heads toward his Cyber Sunday showdown with Batista for the World Heavyweight Championship, he dominated Noble, sending another message to The Animal. Watch Undertaker destroy Noble...
When Undertaker and Batista step into the ring at Cyber Sunday, you have the power to decide who will be the special guest referee. But will JBL, Stone Cold Steve Austin or Mick Foley be able to control the two behemoths when the gold is on the line? Cast your vote now... Out of gas
For the first time since returning to SmackDown, Chuck Palumbo tasted defeat. The rivalry between Palumbo and Masters has been building for weeks as their contempt for one another grows. In a controversial match with Chris Masters, Palumbo lost when Victoria distracted the revved-up Superstar by attacking Michelle McCool. Masters took advantage and rolled Chuck up for the win. Cruising over the tracks
The cruiserweight tandem of Jimmy Wang Yang & Shannon Moore managed to fly high together to defeat Deuce & Domino. Yang enlisted Moore’s help to watch his back after Domino attacked Yang following his victory over Deuce last week. The boys from the Other Side of the Tracks have had their problems lately, unable to find success either together or on their own. While they claim to be “all about cool,” Deuce & Domino have been anything but cool since losing the WWE Tag Team Championship. One of our own
The pride of Scotland, Drew McIntyre, was in singles action once again on SmackDown, taking on Brian Major. The young Scottish Superstar picked up his second consecutive victory since his debut last week, and he owes both wins to his mentor, Dave Taylor. McIntyre has taken full advantage of Taylor’s helping hand at the expense of the Major Brothers, and the young up-and-comer hopes to continue those winning ways. Pushing forward
Rey Mysterio, Finlay, Matt Hardy and MVP will all take part in WWE’s interactive pay-per-view, Cyber Sunday, but on SmackDown Rey faced the United States Champion and one-half of the WWE Tag Team Champions, for the first time. MVP’s co-champion Matt Hardy faced the Irishman in a one-on-one contest that saw his “friend” MVP deliver an unlikely assist. As all four push toward their respective Cyber Sunday matches – matches that YOU have the power to decide – who seized the upper hand? Read the full story… Taking down a deity
SmackDown’s color commentator JBL interviewed World Heavyweight Champion Batista about his upcoming Cyber Sunday match with Undertaker, and the self-proclaimed “Wrestling God” may have bit off more than he could chew when he began berating The Animal. Read the full story…
Breaking News: Lex Luger Suffers Stroke?
Written by Ryan Clark on October 19, 2007 at 18:04:03
Dave Meltzer is reporting that Lex Luger is in rough shape in San Francisco.
There are reports that he suffered a stroke in his hotel room and has no feeling from the waist down.
Several fans and even family members of Lex Luger have emailed me asking for updates. The only thing I can tell you is that I'm told he had a mild heart attack and not a stroke as I reported earlier. The only information the hospital released to me is that he is in stable condition but is in the emergency care unit.
NoDQ.com > WWE > Update on Lex Luger's condition at hospital Posted by Bobby Spade on 10/19/2007 at 07:13 PM
From Dave Meltzer:
Pro wrestler Lawrence Pfohl (Lex Luger), 49, is currently listed in stable condition in the emergency care unit at Stanford University Hospital in Palo Alto, CA, after a major scare in his hotel room in San Francisco.
The hospital wouldn't confirm any more. There have been different reports over the past few hours as to whether Luger suffered a heart attack or a stroke, but the former seems to have the most credence at this point.
Phillip (Phil) Brooks (26 oktober, 1978) staat beter bekend bij zijn ring-naam CM Punk en is een Amerikaanse professionele worstelaar die momenteel werkt voor de World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) op de ECW show. Voor zijn debuut in ECW stond hij goed bekend voor zijn werk in het onafhankelijke circuit, vooral als een lid van het Ring of Honor (ROH) rooster waar hij eerder ROH World Champion en hoofdtrainer van de worstelschool was en werd beschouwd als een van de drie iconen van ROH (samen met Samoa Joe en Homicide. Zijn professionele worstel gimmick is die van een "straight edge" volger, een cultuur waar hij in zijn dagelijks leven ook toe behoord en waarvan hij verschillende aspecten gebruik in het worstelen.
Punk werd geboren in Chicago, Illinois en wilde een professionele worstelaar worden nadat hij Roddy Piper een kokosnoot zag breken boven Jimmy Snuka's hofd tijdens een aflevering van Piper's Pit. Zijn eerste stappen in het worstelen waren in het zogenoemde "Backyard Wrestling" in een federatie die "Lunatic Wrestling Federation" heette samen met zijn vrienden in het midden van de jaren '90. Hij gebruikte daar voor het eerst de naam CM Punk als deel van het tag team de Chick Magnets samen met CM Venom, toen een andere worstelaar de show miste. Hij zou later zeggen dat CM niet stond voor Chick Magnet mar zei dat de initialen geen betekenis hadden door steeds verschillende antwoorden te geven als het werd gevraagd waaronder "Cookie Monster", "Crooked Moonsault", "C. Montgomery Burns", "Charles Manson" en zijn "echte naam", "Chuck Mosley". Nadat hij de federatie verliet omdat hij echt worstelaar wilde worden in tegenstelling tot zijn vrienden die het gewoon voor het plezier deden werd Punk een student bij de "Steel Domain" worstel school in Minnesota waar hij werd getraind door Ace Steel, Danny Dominion en Kevin Quinn om een professionele worstelaar te worden. Als deel van de training worstelde hij bij de St. Paul's Steel Domain Wrestling. Het was hier dat hij Scott Colton ontmoette die later de naam Colt Cabana aan nam. Brooks werd vrienden met Colton en zij worstelden samen grotendeels in dezelfde onafhankelijke promoties met Colton als een tegenstanders of metgezellen. In de onafhankelijke promoties vormde Punk een stable met mede Steel Domain leerlingen Colt Cabana, Chuckie Smoothe, Adam Pearce en manager Dave Prazak die de Gold Bond Mafia heette.

The Big News: Kurt Angle and Sting will meet next week for the TNA World Heavyweight title. Kaz and Christian Cage advanced to the semifinals of the Fight for the Right tournament, while Joe did another unnecessary job.
Kurt Angle was pissed about his loss to Sting. Karen Angle looks more like Stephanie McMahon at 38 every day. Kurt started running down Kevin Nash. Karen thought Kurt was crazy for asking Sting for a rematch because she didn’t think he could beat Sting without Nash interfering. Kurt ordered Karen out of his dressing room. Karen sounded like Talia Shire from Rocky IV telling her husband he couldn’t beat Ivan Drago.
Kurt and Karen came out to the ring where Kurt delivered one of the worst interviews of his career. He said he was an 11-time World Olympic champion. Huh? Kurt brought up the N.W.O. and said it stood for Never Won Zero. Huhhhhhh? Nash came out, and the segment had nowhere to go but up. Nash said he helped Angle because he felt sorry for him. Nash said Angle had one chance to apologize. Kurt refused and said Nash was just riding his coattails. Nash challenged Angle to a fight. Angle threw several punches that Nash no sold, then Nash gave Angle the jackknife to end the segment.
Backstage, Angle was selling his back like he just got shot. Angle wanted to give Nash a peace offering. Jeremy Borash said Nash liked porn, and Kurt ordered Karen to go to the store and get some porn magazines and movies. Karen responded by walking out, with Kurt reminding her to get the magazines.
Chris Sabin vs. Alex Shelley never got going in the first-round of a Fight for the Right tournament match. Way too early to book this match to begin with. They should save it in about two years when the Guns break up. Well, since Russo’s booking, I guess it’ll be three months. Dueling chants before they even locked up. They opened with lots of chain moves and reversals. Then Brother Ray came out and Dvon jumped the guns from behind. Team 3-D laid them out, complete with Ray whipping both men for costing them their match with The Steiner Brothers. Ray said 3-D was going to destroy about the X-Division. He’s about a year late. Ray said he was going to destroy the X-Division because they can. Guess they felt like stealing Shawn Michaels catchphrase while they could. They power bombed Shelley and Sabin through dual tables. So the hottest act in the company got buried again by 1998 headliners. This created an opening for the Fight for the Right tournament quarterfinal.
Jim Cornette was pissed about his Fight for the Right tournament being disrupted when Christian Cage came in with a ladder offering to fill in a spot in the Fight for the Right tournament. Does Cage just carry the ladder around for fun? Then Samoa Joe came in to claim a spot in the tournament. It ended with a pull-apart.
Disco Inferno, introduced as Glen Gilbretti, reemerged for the first time in years. He talked of making a comeback tonight. Gilbretti said he would make his return tonight against an unknown opponent, which Tenay looked uncertain about. Whole segment seemed designed to promote the movie “The Comebacks.” Boy is a parody of sports films long overdue. And boy does this movie look lame.
2. Awesome Kong defeated Talia Madison. Standard monter heel match. Madison did good facials selling she was overmatched. Kong has good agility and a personality that will get her over. She delivered the old Aja Kong huracan (spinning back fist) and pinned Madison with a Liger Bomb. *
Kevin Nash did an interview. He said the rest of the guys were playing politics and back stabbing while he was content with playing comic relief for the past year. When Karen walked in on Nash, he said he didn’t have any singles on him. Karen tried to smooth things over, but Nash blew her off.
They previewed a Christian Cage Best Of tape where Cage brought up Adam Copeland (using that name).
Chris Harris teased a heel turn by getting upset with Rhino for showing up late to an interview. Guess Rhino’s run out of people to feud with.
3. James Storm and Robert Roode defeated Chris Harris and Rhino. Storm played chickenshit heel tagging out before locking up with Rhino. Harris vs. Storm still gets good heat from the crowd. Harris got the hanging vertical suplex on Roode. They built the heat on Rhino after Roode whipped him hard against the corner. Rhino got a belly to belly suplex and went for the gore, but Storm hit a superkick after Roode distracted him. Storm and Roode worked well as a team, as Roode got the rolling neck snap with Storm hit a kneedrop. Rhino made the comeback with a flap jack and made the hot tag to Harris. Harris hit a spinebuster on Storm and a clothesline on Roode for a two count. Harris threw Storm out of the ring, but Roode went for the payoff, and Harris slipped out the backdoor and went for the catatonic, but Roode escaped. Harris hit a rolling reverse cradle and had Roode pinned, but Storm distracted the referee. Rhino tried to get at Storm, which only distracted Earl Hebner further. Then Storm kicked Harris, allowing Roode to get the pin with a payoff. Harris got mad at Rhino afterward. **1/4
Kaz did a bland babyface interview about being in the Fight for the Right tournament.
Jim Cornette and Mike Tenay came out to present the championship belts to the winners from Sunday. Black Machismo came out, even though he was already the X-Division champion. Cornette congratulated him, then Machismo left. Weird. Gail Kim came out to accept the Knockout’s title, and seemed choked up legit. Cornette put her over like hell. Crowd was really hot for her. A.J. Styles and Tomko came out to accept the tag team belts. Christian Cage came out with them. Tomko did an interview like a total face. Styles had a long list of people to thank, including Ivan Drago and Pokemon Diamonds. I guess Russo saw the Rocky marathon on Spike TV three weeks ago. Then Cage butted in and demanded a spot in the Fight for the Right tournament. Cornette said Cage would face Joe for the final spot in the tournament. Then Sting came out to accept the World Heavyweight Title. Crowd chanted “You still got it” at Sting. Sting granted Kurt Angle’s challenge for tonight. Cornette’s mic work was excellent in the segment, and this helped in making the belts feel like something important again. Granted, it couldn’t sew up the damage done with Joe and Angle fighting for all the belts this past summer, or the hotshot title switch straight ahead, but it helped. Unfortunately, they couldn’t leave well enough alone as Kurt Angle came out in a wheelchair. He had a doctor’s note saying he couldn’t compete tonight because of Nash’s jackknife. Sting wanted to know if Angle’s mother signed the doctor’s note, which seemed like a dig at Buff Bagwell. The match was moved to next week.
Backstage, Angle was out of his wheelchair worried about what Sting would do to him next week. He vowed to attempt to make things right with Nash. By this point, I was sick of the Angles.
4. Kaz defeated Lance Hoyt. As if we don’t have enough women teasing dissension with their boy toys, Christy Hemme was still arguing with Lance Hoyt. Throughout the show, Mike Tenay did the Gene Okerland text promo teasing that TNA was negotiating with several free agent superstars. Kaz tried a rolling reverse cradle, slipped through Hoyt’s legs, backflipped over from outside the ring and hit a nice spin kick. He got a drop kick for a two count. Kaz got the spinning neckbreaker for a two count before Jimmy Rave pulled him off. Then Rave and Hemme started arguing, heaven knows over what. Hoyt and Hemme argued in the ring, Kaz charged at Hoyt, only to have Hemme fall in his arms. He teased kissing her, but dodged Hoyt’s big boot, and Hoyt stepped on Hemme instead. Kaz pinned him with a drop kick. Hoyt and Hemme argued some more afterwards. *
Crazy Legs Connie from Major League Eating did an interview promoting the show coming up next. He looked like Gallagher with dreadlocks. Okay, dated reference there. Junior Fatu walked in for a promo saying he was a member of the new bread of TNA. Well, compared to Bob Backland and Kip James he is.
Karen was wheeling Kurt around in a wheelchair arguing who should ask Black Reign where Nash was. When Karen asked him, Reign just licked his rat while everyone ran away, leaving Kurt alone in the wheelchair.
5. Abyss defeated Disco Inferno. They played it up like Inferno didn’t know he was facing Abyss. Just a squash, as Abyss didn’t sell a thing, not that he should have. Shock treatment and black hole slam for the quick pin. Then Black Reign did a run in and attacked Abyss, who made his own comeback with a choke slam. James Mitchell ran in and leveled Abyss, who naturally no sold it. Then Reign hit him with the spiked hammer and pulled out handcuffs. Mitchell handcuffed Abyss arms around the corner, while Reign pulled out Misty the Rat and held it up to Abyss face. Abyss looked scared. Then they put the rat in the bag and put the hood over Abyss head. No heat, and it sounded like there was a chant going on that was edited out. 17 years ago, Terry Funk damn near caused a riot by wrapping a plastic bag around Ric Flair’s head. It drew big time. Somehow I don’t think this will have the same impact. Worst segment of the show by far, which is a running pattern for Reign. DUD
Angle found Nash’s car backstage, who just drove away. Kurt offered him porn to come back to no avail.
6. Samoa Joe defeated Cage. Both men appeared beat up from the PPV match. Joe brought back the ole, ole kick in the ring. He went for the senton, but Cage got the knees up. Cage went for the unprettier, but Joe elbowed out. Cage still hit the reverse DDT for a two count. Joe looked winded minutes into the match, but still hit the enzuigiri. Cage went to the floor, and Joe went for the tope, but Cage went back in the ring. Cage went for a tope of his own, but Joe met him with a kick. Joe tried to suplex Cage out of the ring, but Cage caught himself and gave him the reverse DDT on the apron. Cage jumped off the second rope outside the ring for a clothesline. This was the only match on the show interrupted by a commercial, and really it was impossible to avoid it. Cage got a hangman’s neckbreaker. Joe caught a rear naked choke, but Cage reversed it into a jawbreaker. Really, Joe had him in a standard sleeperhold, but It’s a UFC world now. Cage hit an elbow off the second rope for a two count. Joe turned the tables with a power bomb. Cage went for a shoulder block, but Joe countered it with an ace crusher. Joe got the discus forearm and mowed him down with a hard clothesline for a two count. Cage went for the unprettier, but Joe reversed it with hard kicks chops and a kneedrop for another near fall. Crowd was hot. Joe went for the sunset flip, then turned it into a Toyota roll for another two count. Joe went for the musclebuster, but Cage kicked him away. Both men ended up on the top rope, where Cage threw him off and hit a frog splash for a great near fall. Cage decked the referee then Joe hit the musclebuster for the pin but no ref. Styles ran ion to get thrown out, but Tomko jumped Joe from behind. Joe kicked Tomko low and clotheslined him out of the ring. Then Matt Morgan ran out and brawled with Tomko. Cage brought a chair into the ring, but Joe kicked it in his face. Joe put the Kokina Clutch on Cage, but Roode ran in to hit Joe in the back with a chair, allowing Cage to get the pin. Good match, but no way Joe should be doing jobs when he was just starting to gain back momentum. ***

TNA sent out the following mobile alerts earlier today:
TNA is in talks with former WWE talents Scott Taylor and Brian Lawler, Judas Mesias is out indefinitely and Kevin Nash has told TNA management that he and Scott Hall have discussed reforming their tag team in TNA.
NoDQ.com > WWE > Report: Backstage incident with McMahon/HBK Posted by Bobby Spade on 10/18/2007 at 10:05 PM
Vince McMahon has a history of singling people out backstage and embarressing them in front of other wrestlers. Last Monday when Shawn Michaels was the target of Vince's juvanile 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 McMahons 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.
ECW Champion CM Punk & Kane def. The Miz, John Morrison & Big Daddy V (3-on-2 Handicap Match) Jesse & Festus def. Elijah Burke & Nunzio John Morrison vs. The Miz (no contest)
Results: Setting the night on fire By Andrew Rote October 16, 2007UNITED KINGDOM – Big Daddy V, The Miz and John Morrison had to set aside their differences quickly as they curtailed their campaigns to take on CM Punk and a partner of his choosing in a 3-on-2 Handicap Match.
Taking advantage of his freedom of choice, the ECW Champion selected the Big Red Machine, Kane. SmackDown’s monster ignited the evening, turning Morrison and The Miz against each other, sealing the victory for his team with a devastating chokeslam on the self-proclaimed "chick magnet." (WATCH) More on this story…
Speaking of SmackDown Superstars on ECW on Sci Fi, the brand's acting GM Vickie Guerrero met with Armando Estrada, making it clear that she expects him to return the favor of lending Kane and Jesse & Festus by sending some ECW Superstars to SmackDown. Jesse & Festus broke onto the scene with a convincing win over Elijah Burke & Nunzio. Perhaps most impressive in their win was the exploding force Festus employed between the bells. How will Estrada repay the favor? What impact will SmackDown's success on ECW on Sci Fi have on the Land of the Extreme?
At Cyber Sunday, our fans' dreams come alive and on ECW on Sci Fi, Balls Mahoney’s dream came true. Despite knowing the consequences that she may face, Kelly Kelly asked Balls out. She now can only wait for the fate that lies ahead, courtesy of the holder of her contract, The Miz. (WATCH)
On Tuesday night, The Miz had bigger things on his mind than Kelly’s love life. He and Morrison went to settle their differences in the main event, only to see their match interrupted by attacks from the behemoth, Big Daddy V. CM Punk’s opponent will be decided by you, but the biggest performance of the three undoubtedly belongs to Daddy. (WATCH) More…
Use your freedom of choice on WWE.com and don’t miss the final ECW on Sci Fi before Cyber Sunday on Tuesday at 10/9 CT.
Hardcore Holly def. Cody Rhodes Santino Marella def. Val Venis Candice Michelle def. Jillian Hall Rory McAllister def. Brian Kendrick Randy Orton def. Jeff Hardy (Non-title Match) Randy Orton def. Mr. Kennedy (disqualification, Non-title Match) Randy Orton def. Shawn Michaels (disqualification, Non-title Match)
Results: United Kingdom Come By Greg Adkins October 17, 2007UNITED KINGDOM – Hardcore Holly continues to play professor to the young upstart Cody Rhodes. This Monday night marked the third time Rhodes has challenged the six-time Hardcore Champion and the third time he’s been taught a lesson in humility.
This week the tenacious Rhodes battled valiantly for the capacity crowd at England’s Birmingham National Indoor Arena, displaying flashes of brilliance and a never-say-die attitude. Unfortunately for Rhodes, Holly’s experience proved too difficult to overcome.
However, Rhodes continued his pursuit of excellence despite the odds. After suffering a harsh beating from the veteran, Rhodes gave as good as he got, scoring five near-pinfalls before succumbing to an Alabama Slammer from Holly.
Has Holly had enough of schooling the rookie? Or is Rhodes’ dogged determination finally earning him the respect of the Hardcore veteran?
In other developments on Raw:
Venis Eclipsed Last time Santino Marella had to face Val Venis, the Italian arranged for a substitute in the form of the yuck-mouthed monster himself, Snitsky. This Monday night, though, Marella and Venis went head-to-head. The former Intercontinental Champion proved his in-ring abilities outweighed his singing chops when he defeated the former adult-film star as his “girlfriend” Maria looked on.
Candy-coated Comeback Anyone wondering whether or not Candice Michelle could bounce back from the loss of the Women’s Championship to Beth Phoenix had their doubts put to rest Monday night. Despite losing the gold at No Mercy, Candice continues to display heaps of heart, this week defeating fellow Diva Jillian Hall. At the conclusion of the match, the Glamazon announced that the Candy-coated Diva had invoked her rematch clause. The two will battle for the Women’s Championship next Monday, and Phoenix has promised to bring the Candy-coated Diva to her knees.
Plaid About You Highlander Rory McAllister faced off against Brian Kendrick in a singles match, giving their respective tag partners the night off. Robbie McAllister and Paul London watched ringside as their partners did battle. Also observing the bout ringside was reigning World Tag Team Champions Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch, who called the Highlanders the “most improved tag team of the year.” As if to drive home the point, Rory slammed Kendrick to the mat and chalked up the win.
Ring of Fire Poor Jonathan Coachman. The conniving Raw Executive Assistant can't seem to grasp how Hornswoggle outsmarts him time and time again. Still on "manny" duty, Coachman had his hands full again Monday night. Mr. McMahon's newest son had Coachman chase him down on bike, through the Divas locker room and finally down to the ring, where their explosive hijinx looked like a scene out of a Looney Tunes episode. (WATCH)
Hardy Grounded Randy Orton got off to an inauspicious start with Raw General Manager William Regal after dubbing audience members “English rogues.” The British GM took umbrage and arranged three matches for the WWE Champion against his three possible Cyber Sunday opponents: Jeff Hardy, Mr. Kennedy and Shawn Michaels.
First up to make his case for facing Orton at Cyber Sunday was the “Rainbow-haired Warrior.” Hardy soared several times during the match, knocking the Legend Killer on his back. As the aerial acrobat prepared to drop a Swanton Bomb onto the Champion, Cyber Sunday rival Mr. Kennedy decided to make his presence known. Story | WATCH
The Ego Has Landed When the time came for Mr. Kennedy to tangle with the Legend Killer, the loudmouth from Green Bay, Wis., had his elevated ego shot down in flames. In retaliation for Mr. Kennedy’s earlier interference, Hardy charged the ring and played some dirty Cyber Sunday politics of his own. Story | WATCH
Nighty-Night, Randy In his third match of the evening, Orton met up with the returning Shawn Michaels, the man who put him to sleep last week with a lullaby of Sweet Chin Music. This week, HBK was determined to send the Legend Killer off to slumber land again. But with Cyber Sunday less than two weeks away, Mr. Kennedy and then Jeff Hardy had something to say about that, especially to impressionable WWE voters. Story | WATCH

Unless things change, it is believed that CM Punk's mystery partner tonight on ECW will be Kane. It looks like Kane might be making a complete jump from Smackdown to ECW and it won't be a one-time thing.[/quote]
NoDQ.com > WWE > Smackdown and ECW rosters to merge? Posted by Bobby Spade on 10/16/2007 at 02:34 PM
Partnership forming? Written: October 16, 2007 WWE.com has learned that several meetings have taken place between Acting SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero and ECW General Manager Armando Estrada that, if ratified, would allow SmackDown and ECW Superstars to compete on Tuesday and Friday nights.
While nothing is signed as of yet, locker room sources say that this open door agreement between Vickie and the cunning Cuban shyster will be discussed tonight, live on ECW on Sci Fi. No further details have been released, and when pressed for more information, Estrada was tight-lipped (a rarity in its own right).
“I have no news for you right now,” said Estrada. “But tonight on ECW on Sci Fi (10/9 CT), I will give some insight into these, come se dice, meetings.”
NoDQ.com > TNA > Breaking Report: TNA World Champion Sting Retiring Posted by Steve Carrier on 10/15/2007 at 06:55 PM
Source: Wrestling Observer
- TNA World Champion Sting has been telling people that he will be retiring at the end of this year.
Some people within TNA believe Sting has been using the retirement card as a way to get a raise from the company. Dixie Carter wants to keep Sting around TNA, even though Jeff Jarrett wasn't big on re-signing Sting last year.
Sting has a very nice contract with TNA, as he doesn't have to work the house shows or international dates and still receives premium pay.
LAX defeated Triple X in an Ultimate X Match to become the #1 Contenders for the TNA World Tag Team Titles. Really hot crowd tonight in Atlanta to kick off the show. They went back to using the cable ropes for the Ultimate X instead of the "Elevation X" structure. Early on in the match, Homicide got on the cables going for the X, but Senshi brought him down. Homicide took out Senshi later with a suicide dive through the ropes. Hernandez pulled Skipper down when he went for the X on the cables as well. Huge spot saw Skipper stand on top of the steel structure and hit a big cross-body on Hernandez. Another big spot saw Homicide bring Skipper off the cables hitting a big neckbreaker. Senshi with the Warrior's Way on Homicide. Finish saw Hernandez give Skipper a Border Toss over the top rope onto Senshi and then climbed up to get the X and the win.
- Video is shown of Kurt Angle and Karen Angle arriving at different times. Kevin Nash was also shown arriving to the arena.
- Back live, Mike Tenay and Don West rundown the card tonight.
- Backstage, Crystal is with Christian Cage, AJ Styles and Tomko. Cage complains that he isn't the #1 contender for the TNA Title and reminds Samoa Joe that he has never been pinned or submitted in TNA yet. Cage walks off and Styles talks about wrestling in his "backyard" tonight in his hometown of Atlanta. Tomko cuts him off and talks about their tag title shot against Team Pacman later tonight.
- Eric Young won the "Fight for the Right" Match. We start out with 16 wrestlers with "Reverse Battle Royal" rules where the first eight to get in the ring advance and it turns into a Battle Royal. When the final two remain, we go to pinfall or submission rules to determine a winner. Confused yet? Those who took part included as follows: Jimmy Rave, Lance Hoyt, Shark Boy, Petey Williams, Kaz, Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin, Sonjay Dutt, Kip James, BG James, James Storm, Eric Young, Robert Roode, Chris Harris and Junior Fatu. The first eight to advance were Junior Fatu, Alex Shelley, Kaz, Robert Roode, Eric Young, Lance Hoyt, Chris Sabin and James Storm. Eliminated in the Battle Royal were James Storm, Junior Fatu, Chris Sabin, Kaz, Lance Hoyt and Alex Shelley. We are down to Robert Roode and Eric Young with pinfall or submission rules. Young got the win with a small package on Roode. The announcers reminded the audience that this was just the beginning as the final eight are going to be involved in an elimination tournament on Impact.
- A highlight package airs regarding Adam "Pacman" Jones.
- Backstage, Crystal is with Team Pacman. Ron "The Truth" Killings talked about having home field advantage tonight and introduced a new member of Team Pacman - Consequences Creed.
- Backstage, Kurt Angle and Karen Angle are shown arguing.
- AJ Styles & Tomko defeated Team Pacman to become the NEW TNA World Tag Team Champions. The new members of Team Pacman, Rasheed Lucius Consequences Creed, replaced Adam "Pacman" Jones in the match tagging with Ron Killings. The match started off early on with Creed and AJ Styles. Pacman intefered "making it rain" on Styles by throwing money at him. Referee Earl Hebner was then distracted picking up the money as Killings had Styles rolled up. Tenay said Hebner was picking up the money like a dancer in a strip club. Probably not the smartest thing to say given the circumstances of those involved. The finish saw Tomko get the pinfall on Killings after a modified double-team corkscrew finisher to capture the TNA tag titles.
- Backstage, Karen Angle confronts Kevin Nash and tells him to help Kurt tonight. Nash said he wasn't going to talk to Kurt tonight at all. Karen called Kurt "their meal ticket" and said that if Kurt didn't win tonight, then Nash might have to return to the ring on his bad knees.
- A video package runs highlighting tonight's X Division Title Match between Jay "Black Machismo" Lethal and Christopher Daniels.
- Jay "Black Machismo" Lethal defeated Christopher Daniels to retain the TNA X Division Title. Really solid match between these guys with the crowd in Atlanta staying really hot and really helping the overall presentation. There were numerous near falls early on in the match. Daniels hit the BME (Best Moonsault Ever) on Lethal early on as well. Lethal missed a flying elbow attempt on Daniels. The finish saw Lethal hit the Lethal Combination on Daniels which consisted of Lethal hitting a backbreaker on Daniels off the top followed by a downward spiral for the pinfall to retain the X Title. Very good match.
