Sting to stay with TNA for one more year? Posted by Bobby Spade on 12/15/2007 at 12:09 PM
Sting, who turns 49 years old in March, has either verbally agreed to a new contract, or the belief is that they are close to an agreement. It is said to be a new one-year deal. He will do some TV, most PPV's, and hardly any house shows. Dixie Carter sees him as a wrestler who makes TNA look more major league and whose name will help them land more licensing deals.

BOSTON – The city of Boston’s “Beantown” moniker accurately describes what happened to Rey Mysterio on Friday Night SmackDown.
With his Armageddon opponent, United States Champion MVP, looking on as a guest commentator, Mysterio took on Kenny Dykstra. SmackDown’s self-proclaimed “future Hall of Famer” put up a valiant fight against Mysterio, but the Master of the 619 was able to Drop the Dime on Dykstra for the victory.
After the bout, MVP entered the ring, congratulating Rey on his impressive win. While he had called Mysterio “half a man” on commentary only minutes earlier, the Ballin’ Superstar told Rey that he is an “amazing” competitor and requested a handshake; Mysterio was understandably leery, but the champion brushed it off, as if he understood.
Moments later, however, Mysterio understood just how heavy the U.S. Championship truly is. Mid-sentence, MVP reacted to Dykstra staggering to his feet behind Rey, and when the Master of the 619 turned to see what spooked MVP, the Ballin’ Superstar took the opportunity to clobber him in the back of the head with the gold. The champion then cockily walked away, smirking as Mysterio lay prone in the ring. (WATCH)

Boston has a high population of Irish-Americans, but Friday was a bad night in Beantown for pure-bred Irishman, Finlay. As ordered, Assistant General Manager Theodore Long announced a Raw – and Survivor Series – rematch between Hornswoggle and The Great Khali. Once again, however, the match never reached its conclusion.
This time, Finlay made his way out – with shillelagh in hand – to protect his little buddy. His onslaught was effective momentarily, but a quick-thinking Ranjin Singh would be his undoing. Khali’s translator grabbed a hold of Hornswoggle, threatening to hurt the littlest McMahon if Finlay didn’t stop his assault on Khali.
The ornery Irishman quickly took care of that threat – clobbering Singh and tossing him out of the ring – but that gave the Punjabi giant time to recover and crack Finlay with a giant chop to the head. He then nailed Finlay with a Khali Bomb, leaving him decimated for the second straight week. (WATCH)
What will happen when these two finally lock up one-on-one at Armageddon? More trouble in paradise
Michelle McCool wouldn’t have to come to Kelly Kelly’s aid on SmackDown like she did Tuesday night on ECW; this time, the Divas were side-by-side as they took on Victoria & Layla in tag team action.
Unfortunately, much like last week’s contest between Michelle’s friend, Chuck Palumbo, and Jamie Noble, an accidental distraction cost the beautiful blondes the match. When Kenny Dykstra – who was at ringside with Victoria & Layla – tripped McCool, Palumbo roared out on his motorcycle to chase Dykstra. However, this distracted Michelle momentarily, allowing Victoria to roll her up from behind and score the pinfall.
Moments later, Michelle caught up with an again-furious Palumbo in the locker room; she tried to calm him down, but after lamenting over his recent streak of bad luck, the motorcycle enthusiast punched a hole through the wall before stomping away, still mad.
The revved-up Superstar couldn’t have been any happier after seeing what Noble did for McCool later in the night. As she and Kelly entered their locker room, they happened upon quite an array of roses and gifts left by Noble in preparation for next week’s date. Michelle actually seemed flattered by Noble’s advances; what will happen when they finally have their date? Last Hoo-rah?
Jesse & Festus finally got the upper hand on WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison this week, as Festus defeated Miz in singles action. Jesse & Festus had lost two straight tag team matches to the Extreme champions in recent weeks, but it was a different story when the self-proclaimed “chick magnet” had to fly solo.
While Festus had Miz up in a fireman’s carry, Morrison tried to help his partner. Instead, the burly “grizzly bear” (as color commentator JBL called him) used Miz to knock the Shaman of Sexy down to the arena floor before dropping to the mat with a flapjack to pick up the victory. Triple Threat Theatre
Although wheelchair bound and sporting a neck brace as a result of Undertaker’s attack weeks ago, SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero returned to her duties this week. In her first act back, she announced that all three participants in the Triple Threat Match at Armageddon – World Heavyweight Champion Batista, Undertaker and the love of her life, Edge – would see singles action just 48 hours before their big night.
Once again, however, the Ultimate Opportunist seemed to be the only one to escape the night relatively unscathed. While Edge made quick work of Funaki, The Animal and The Phenom had a much tougher time with three of WWE’s biggest Superstars – Batista in a Last Man Standing Match with Kane, Undertaker in a Handicap Match against Mark Henry & Big Daddy V – as well as the pesky Rated-R S
NEWS FROM THURSDAY'S "iMPACT!" BROADCAST ON SPIKE TV The road continues to the January 6 "Final Resolution" PPV By Bill Banks
There are several news items to report from Thursday's "iMPACT!" broadcast on SpikeTV as TNA Wrestling heads towards the Sunday, January 6 "Final Resolution" Pay-Per-View event.
- Going into Thursday's broadcast, Christian Cage promised he would get revenge on The Angle Alliance for what they did to him. A bout was signed featuring Cage and a partner of his choice vs. Kurt Angle and Robert Roode, but "The Instant Classic" couldn't get anyone to agree to be his partner (Kaz, Kevin Nash, Samoa Joe and Booker T all turned Cage down). In the end, Cage went it alone in the bout - but the odds were against him. Cage lost the match and suffered another beating afterwards at the hands of Angle and Roode. AJ Styles came down to ringside and looked as though he was going to help his former mentor, but he backed off and never entered the ring.
- By winning the "Feast Or Fired" four-way bout on the broadcast, Scott Steiner was offered a unique opportunity: A $50,000 check or the chance to switch cases with either BG James, Christopher Daniels or Petey Williams. Steiner chose to switch his case and took Petey's case, which he believed had the shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
- The "Feast Or Fired" cases were opened later in the broadcast, and here are the results: Petey Williams earned the TNA World Heavyweight Championship shot, BG James earned the TNA Tag Team Title shot (although he was non-committal if Kip James would be his partner for the contest), Scott Steiner got the X Championship shot (much to his anger) - but the big news is that Christopher Daniels found out his case (which he won from Senshi) contained the slip revealing he had been fired! TNA security escorted Daniels from the ring as "The Fallen Angel" said his final goodbyes to the fans. Daniels is no longer a part of the TNA roster.
- During an in-ring confrontation, manager James Mitchell threatened Abyss that he would reveal yet another secret he knows about his former protege. However, Abyss eventually snapped and mauled Mitchell - leading to the return of Judas Mesias! Mesias wrapped a piece of barbed wire around Abyss' neck and bloodied his nemesis while Mitchell watched on.
- Kaz defeated the maniacal newcomer Rellik, but Black Reign hit the ring after the bout join in on an assault on Kaz. Later in the broadcast, Black Reign's alter-ego Dustin Rhodes was interviewed by Crystal. He claimed he couldn't be held responsible for Reign's actions, but Kaz disagreed as he attacked Rhodes during the interview for what happened earlier.
- Velvet Sky and Angelina Love defeated Ms. Brooks and an intoxicated Jackie Moore in women's tag team action. After the bout, Robert Roode berated Brooks, leading to Sharmell hitting the ring to confront Roode about his treatment of women. Roode had some choice words for Sharmell, which brought out Booker T. Before Booker could hit the ring, Roode bailed out and talked trash with his nemesis from the entrance ramp. Speaking of Booker T, he beat "Wildcat" Chris Harris in singles action on the broadcast.
- In a Lumberjack Strap Match, X Division Champion "Black Machismo" Jay Lethal defeated Johnny Devine, getting his revenge on the X turncoat. After the bout, members of the X Division hit the ring and poured on the punishment on Devine. After the beating, Team 3D came out and talked trash with the Motor City Machineguns.
* ECW Champion CM Punk & Kane def. Deuce & Domino * WWE Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz def. Shannon Moore & Jimmy Wang Yang * Layla & Victoria def. Kelly Kelly * World Heavyweight Champion Batista def. Elijah Burke
BOSTON — Gold was the color of the night on ECW on Sci Fi as four championship titles made their way through the Land of the Extreme.
Batista may have his Triple Threat Match at Armageddon on his mind, but he needed to set those thoughts aside momentarily for ECW. The Animal experienced just as much success as he did last week when he defeated Elijah Burke on SmackDown, despite the fact that the rematch was on the Guiding Light’s territory. Just days away from his date with destiny at the pay-per-view, Batista made the Land of the Extreme shake on his way to a powerful victory.
In other Tuesday night action, Kelly Kelly received a wake-up call back to reality as the tandem of Layla & Victoria proved to be too much for the blond beauty in their Handicap Match. The Miz has spent weeks trying to make Kelly’s life a living hell, scheduling match after match. Kelly, however, has managed to fair well in those contests, for the most part. But in her task at taking on two Divas at once, Kelly fell short. A bright spot for the former member of Extreme Exposé came after the bell when Michelle McCool rushed to her side.
When he’s not busy making life difficult for Kelly, The Miz is finding success of his own in the squared circle. His success with John Morrison continues as the unlikely pair showed why they are the WWE Tag Team Champions when they took on Shannon Moore & Jimmy Wang Yang. Individually, the Shaman of Sexy and the self-proclaimed “chick magnet” are tough athletes for anyone to face. Together, they have been one of the most successful forces in sports-entertainment today.
Outside of the ring, Shelton Benjamin reminded our fans that he is the new gold standard in ECW. Will he prove to make a great impact on ECW? Only time will tell.
The evening began when ECW Champion CM Punk teamed up with Kane to defeat former WWE Tag Team Champions Deuce & Domino. SmackDown’s Big Red Machine has had the Straightedge Superstar’s back. Together, the duo may have found a formula to outmatch both ECW and SmackDown competition. (WATCH) More on this story...
Breaking News: Top TNA Knockout Suffers Broken Leg
Posted by Ryan Gray on 12/12/2007 at 03:41 PM

TNA just sent out a text alert via their mobile service that Karen Angle suffered a broken leg at last night’s Impact tapings.
The injury was suffered when she landed awkwardly while exiting the six
sided ring during a segment being taped for Impact. Spectators said
that she had to be carried backstage after the segment was over and
didn’t return to ringside for the rest of the night including missing
Kurt’s match later in the taping. Original reports had suggested it was
just a sprain or break of the ankle, but the term used by TNA was a
Thanks to Geoffrey Gillott & WrestlingObserver.com:
The crowd tonight was read hot from beginning to end, Only dying down during the Kennedy vs Jannetty match which few seemed to care about. Seeing all the legends back was just fantastic, even if guys like Bart Gunn and The Goon went over most peoples heads. Some of the guys more familliar from the attitude era like Blackman and Gillberg got big pops however. Hogan's reaction wasn't quite as big as I expected. I'm not sure how it came out on TV, but it wasn't nearly big as the pop Triple H got during the three times he came out.
The dark match had DH Smith defeating Steve Corino
After the show, the Beer Bash continued for about another 5 minutes, with just about everyone drinking a beer, except for Backlund who just had a bottle of water. Not sure if Godfathers women were legitimate prostitutes or just models, but they starting flashing their assets to th crowd after the show, a very classy thing to do in front of children.
Mae Young got a very respectful reaction from the crowd as well
Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy def. Carlito in a Ladder Match Rob Van Dam def. Santino Marella World Heavyweight Champion Batista, Triple H & Ric Flair def. WWE Champion Randy Orton, Edge & Umaga (DQ) Hornswoggle vs. The Great Khali (No contest) The "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase wins 15th Anniversary 15-Man Battle Royal Cody Rhodes & Hardcore Holly def. World Tag Team Champions Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch (New champions) Mr. Kennedy def. Marty Jannetty
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – In a night where legends returned to their old stomping ground, new champions were crowned tonight during Raw’s 15th Anniversary celebration. Cody Rhodes & Hardcore Holly’s tenuous relationship proved fruitful, and they defeated Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch for the World Tag Team Championship.
Cody’s father, WWE Hall of Famer “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes watched from ringside, as Holly caught Murdoch in the Alabama Slam and picked up the winning golden pinfall for his team. The Arena at Harbor Yard crowd cheered as a proud Dusty embraced his son and held the new champions’ arms high.
The win ended the “Redneck Wrecking Crew’s” three-month reign as champs and marked Cody’s first title win in WWE and the third World Tag Team Championship for Holly. Maybe Cody, who fought his now-championship partner several weeks in singles competition before they formed their team, has finally earned Holly’s respect. Watch exclusive video...
