Chris Jericho has an injury scare Posted by Randy Gordon on 03/02/2008 at 02:51 PM
At Friday night's WWE house show in Cape Girardeau, MO Chris Jericho seemed to get injured. Jericho went for the Lionsault but Mr. Kennedy was too far away and Y2J landed akwardly on his head. The referee tossed up the X sign with his hands a few times but Jericho was able to get back up and lock on a very poor Walls of Jericho for the win. Following the match several trainers came out and helped him to the back.
Jericho did compete at last night's event in Louisville, KY so he seems to be fine. Those in attendance in MO though, said it was a very scary situation and it seems as if Y2J is very lucky he wasn't majorly injured.
TUCSON, Ariz. – Competing for the first time in more than a year, Big Show wasted little time in sending a loud message to all the Superstars of WWE and, more importantly, his WrestleMania XXIV opponent Floyd Mayweather. The “World’s Largest Athlete” is back and bigger, stronger and more dangerous than ever.
In a Handicap Match, Big Show laid waste to his unfortunate opponents, decimating two challengers in dominating fashion. With just four weeks until WWE descends onto Orlando, Fla., the giant showed the world why he has always been one of the most feared competitors in sports-entertainment. Big Show KO’d his competition with a barrage of left and right hooks and other boxing moves for the impressive victory, and then had some choice words for Mayweather, warning, “I am going to break Floyd Mayweather in two at WrestleMania.” This Monday on Raw, Show will have another chance to display his power when he faces a professional fighter in the ring.
Branded for war Moments before Batista and tag team partner Kane entered into action against United States Champion MVP and The Great Khali, The Animal approached General Manager Vickie Guerrero and requested to represent SmackDown against Raw’s Umaga at WrestleMania XXIV. SmackDown Diva Maryse had been in the GM’s office currying the favor of Vickie and encouraged Guerrero, who then granted Batista his wish. The former World Champion will take on the Samoan Bulldozer in the Citrus Bowl. Later, with a focused attack, Batista & Kane defeated Khali & MVP when The Animal displayed his unbelievable strength by delivering both a spinebuster and a spear to the Punjabi giant to seal the win.
Changing the face of winning Jesse & Festus got the biggest win yet in their impressive winning streak when they defeated WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison in a non-title affair. The “biscuits ‘n’ gravy” duo’s victory may have proven to the champions that they can't brush aside the awkward tandem, and may have given unexpected momentum to another team looking to win the titles, Tommy Dreamer & Colin Delaney, who challenge the champions Tuesday on ECW on Sci Fi. As seen in the WWE Mobile on AT&T Exclusive, the ECW pair might not be the only team with gold in their sights next week. More...
Also on SmackDown With Michelle McCool by his side, Jamie Noble headed to the ring to take on Chuck Palumbo, hopeful to gain retribution for the injury he sustained at the hands of Palumbo weeks ago on SmackDown. With his new attitude feeding his rage, revved-up Superstar Palumbo once again took his aggression out on Noble, leaving him punished in the center of the ring after a devastating Full Throttle.
In other action, Jimmy Wang Yang & Shannon Moore faced Deuce & Domino on Friday night, and SmackDown’s resident redneck Yang picked up the win for his team when he delivered a Moonsault to Deuce.
Out for blood After curtailing a battle between Big Daddy V and Balls Mahoney, Undertaker paved his own dark path to WrestleMania XXIV on Friday night. Letting nothing stand in his way of getting to World Heavyweight Champion Edge, The Phenom decimated Big Daddy V and Balls, and then demanded an immediate start to his match with Zack Ryder. With Edge and Curt Hawkins at ringside, The Deadman destroyed Ryder, but was left open for an attack from the Rated-R Superstar. The No. 1 contender wouldn’t be kept down, however, and Undertaker fought back and bloodied Edge’s “minions” with his dangerous submission maneuver while the Ultimate Opportunist fled for the second week in a row.
Worstelaar Hulk Hogan heeft zijn familie gechoqueerd door een affaire te beginnen met een van de beste vriendinnen van zijn dochter Brooke. Dat vertelt de bewuste vriendin, de 33-jarige Christiane Plante, aan het Amerikaanse tabloid The National Enquirer.
Na beslissing scheiding De affaire zou eind vorig jaar hebben plaatsgevonden, vlak nadat Linda, de vrouw van de 54-jarige Hogan, had aangegeven te willen scheiden. Ondanks dat Hogan zijn vrouw niet bedroog, heeft Plante toch spijt van het gebeurde.
"Terry (echte naam van Hogan, nvdr) is een goede man, een goede vader en een goede vriend en we groeiden naar elkaar toe in een heel moeilijke periode", vertelt ze. "Dat voelde op dat moment goed, maar dat was het niet."
Vriendin gekwetst Plante heeft er vooral spijt van dat ze haar 19-jarige vriendin Brooke heeft gekwetst door met haar vader te gaan. "Het is nooit mijn bedoeling geweest om de fantastische, grappige, lieve, liefhebbende, mooie en getalenteerde dochter van Terry en Linda te kwetsen, zegt ze over Brooke, die ze ook een brief zou hebben gestuurd waarin ze haar excuses aanbiedt.
Scheiden voor het geld? Hulk Hogan kreeg eind november van een verslaggever te horen dat zijn vrouw Linda niet langer in hun 24-jarige huwelijk geloofde. Boze tongen beweren dat de twee hun scheiding in scène hebben gezet om hun fortuin veilig te stellen.
Afgelopen zomer veroorzaakte hun 17-jarige zoon Nick een auto-ongeluk, waarbij zijn medepassagier levensgevaarlijk gewond raakte. Terry en Linda zouden een miljoenenverslindende rechtszaak vrezen. (belga/edp)
Thursday, 20 September 2007 NEWS AND VIDEO FROM THURSDAY’S “iMPACT!” BROADCAST ON SPIKE TV The road to the “Destination X” Pay-Per-View continues By Bill Banks
There are several major news items for report from Thursday’s “iMPACT!” broadcast as TNA Wrestling counts down the days until the March 9 “Destination X” Pay-Per-View event:
- On Thursday’s broadcast, Kurt and Karen Angle were still arguing about their career and marriage. In fact, Kurt was especially mean-spirited to Karen, making her cry as a result. Karen’s “other husband” AJ Styles came to her defense, with AJ even asking Angle to apologize to her, but the TNA World Heavyweight Champion wouldn’t hear any of it.
- Kurt Angle faced Kevin Nash in the main event on the broadcast – Nash looked to have it won after hitting his Powerbomb on Angle, but referee Earl Hebner was on the outside (along with AJ Styles) tending to Karen Angle, who had been knocked down inadvertently by Angle during the bout. Kurt Angle took that opportunity to hit Nash with a low blow and score the pin with the Olympic Slam.
- In addition, Booker T called out Robert Roode to settle their war once and for all, but Roode’s manager Payton Banks came out instead – telling Booker that Roode was en route and would arrive later. When Payton ended up slapping Booker, Traci Brooks came out and the two ladies brawled in a catfight! Later in the broadcast, all four TNA superstars ended up fighting again – and this time Roode and Banks handcuffed Booker and Brooks to the ring ropes and beat them unmercifully!
- Shark Boy and Curry Man were scheduled to face Team 3D, but neither Brother Ray nor Brother Devon could make weight this week. As a result, Shark Boy put out an open challenge, which was answered by Black Reign and Rellik. Team 3D and Johnny Devine got involved in the bout as did Kaz and Eric Young...but once again, Young was afraid to get near Rellik and Black Reign!
- In tag team action, “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner (along with Rhaka Khan) and “Maple Leaf Muscle” Petey Williams defeated X Division Champion “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal and “The Guru” Sonjay Dutt when Williams beat Dutt with the Canadian Destroyer. Prior to the bout, Steiner told Williams that he was almost ready for his “initiation”…but Steiner didn’t elaborate what that meant.
- Also on the broadcast, Eric Young faced James Stom in a Ladder Match for the Drinking Championship. Due to an apparent fear of heights, Storm was hesitant to climb the ladder – so Jacqueline did it for him and pulled down the title! However, after the bout “The War Machine” Rhino hit the ring and nailed Storm with a GORE – and also took the Drinking Championship in the process!
- In singles action, TNA Women’s Champion Awesome Kong annihilated Angelina Love, even injuring her during the bout. After the match, both ODB and Gail Kim hit the ring to attempt to inflict damage on Kong before the three-way title match at Destination X.
Judas Mesias may be on his way out of TNA. The word going around backstage at Tuesday's Impact tapings was that Mesias has worked his last match with the company for a while. Both sides are open to working together in the future, but several people backstage are under the impression that they don't have any future plans for him.
After joining TNA last fall, Mesias is still working without a contract. Mesias is one of a few talents working under a pay-per-appearance deal with TNA. The reason for this is that some non-contracted wrestlers enjoy the freedom of working non-TNA shows, and they wouldn't be able to work certain shows if they signed with TNA. In Mesias' case, he's affiliated with the AAA promotion in Mexico, which is a major promotion there. If he signed a contract with TNA, he probably wouldn't be allowed to work there anymore.
Mesias makes approximately $300 more per match in TNA than in AAA, so that figures to around $500 per shot. However he can wrestle up to five nights a week in Mexico, and earn nearly $100,000 per year there, which is presumably more than TNA is willing to pay him.
Kofi Kingston & Kelly Kelly def. Santino Marella & Layla Stevie Richards def. Mike Knox Tommy Dreamer & Colin Delaney def. WWE Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz (Non-title) CM Punk def. Elijah Burke and Shelton Benjamin (Triple Threat Match; No. 1 Contender)
TUCSON, Ariz. – At No Way Out, Chavo Guerrero established himself as ECW Champion, but he didn’t put to an end the mix of Superstars coveting and fighting for his title.
Speaking of mixes, a Mixed Tag Team Match started the evening as Kofi Kingston & Kelly Kelly took on Santino Marella & Layla. Considering the blond beauty has struggled against her rival Diva throughout recent months, the Jamaican Superstar was a smart competitor to team up with. Set on ridding his ECW paradise of any trouble, Kingston has yet to lose a match since joining the extreme brand. Tonight was nothing different.
Kelly’s three-count pin of Layla brought her a second consecutive victory against her former fellow Extreme Exposé member, leaving Layla to ponder what she must do to contain the blonde once again. For Santino, the loss simply rubs salt into the wound already opened by his anger over his girlfriend, Maria, posing in Playboy. More on Maria's Playboy experience ...
In other tag team action, Tommy Dreamer helped Colin Delaney experience his first taste of victory on ECW on Sci Fi in their first attempt at teaming up. The duo faced their all-too-familiar rivals, the WWE Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz, in hopes of getting the better of the overconfident pair. When the ECW Original got the pin, the arena exploded in celebration. No one was happier than Delaney, who enjoyed his first win since strutting to ring to suffer painful defeats at the hands of giant after giant. (WATCH)
The win was extra special, coming at the expense of the champions, who will put their gold on the line next week against Dreamer & Delaney to prove this contest was nothing more than a fluke. If the WWE Tag Team Champions are wrong, be ready to see the young, small-framed Superstar hoisting a title in the air alongside the fighting Original the next time ECW on Sci Fi airs.
Dreamer’s fellow ECW Original Stevie Richards picked up a win as well, as he defeated Mike Knox en route to his third straight victory since returning to the squared circle. Richards has showed no signs of slowing down after his nine-month recovery period from throat surgery.
The main event pitted CM Punk, Elijah Burke and Shelton Benjamin in a Triple Threat Match with an ECW Title opportunity on the line. The Straightedge Superstar has once again placed himself in the perfect situation. Will he win back his gold when he squares off against Chavo Guerrero next Tuesday? Catch ECW on Sci Fi at 10/9 CT and find out. (WATCH)

John Cena makes interesting remarks about The Rock Posted by Bobby Spade on 02/26/2008 at 02:37 PM
The UK Sun has posted an interview with John Cena, touting that he's upset with Dwayne Johnson for turning his back on wresting fans.
The preview quote for the interview features Cena commenting, "He is a genuinely nice guy and a fantastic human being. What I kind of get peeved about, and this is my Achilles heel, is that I've wanted to do this my whole life. Rock falls into that category. At one point he loved wrestling and wanted to do this all his life. So explain to me why he can't come back. Simply put it's because he wants to be an actor and there's nothing wrong with that. He's very good and very successful. Associating with sports entertainment doesn't do much for his acting career. I get it. Just don't f*** me around and tell me that you love this. That's the only thing that gets me really p***ed off. Our fan base have so much admiration for him, he's got to respect that. He doesn't give anything back."

PHOENIX – Is Hornswoggle not the little grape sired by Mr. McMahon’s grapefruits? Is he really the feisty long-lost son of the “man who loves to fight,” Finlay?
These stunning allegations came from John “Bradshaw” Layfield after Mr. McMahon demanded that he apologize for decimating Hornswoggle last week on Raw. The Chairman sheepishly admitted to the U.S. Airways Center crowd he “made a mistake” leaving his alleged illegitimate son to the brutal machinations of JBL in a steel cage while he attempted to teach his son a lesson in tough love.
When McMahon ordered JBL, the self-made millionaire made a revelation that hushed our fans.
“I’m sorry,” JBL responded. “I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner!”
With the Chairman flabbergasted and enraged, JBL told McMahon that the little leprechaun might not be who he seems.
“I have it on very good advice that Hornswoggle is not your son,” JBL claimed.
JBL claimed that Hornswoggle’s alleged ruse was a conspiracy that reached into the highest levels of WWE and possibly included McMahon’s own family.
As the Chairman struggled with the news, the “wrestling god” also claimed that Hornswoggle’s protector, Finlay, knew all along that the leprechaun was not a McMahon – but his own son.
“Hornswoggle is Finlay’s son,” JBL claimed. “Hornswoggle had no idea … but Finlay knew the whole time.”
Mr. McMahon was stunned, but told JBL he’d face a worse beating if he’s lying about Hornswoggle. But the brash millionaire promised to produce documentation that would back up his claims.
“[Finlay’s] Irish eyes aren’t smiling. … They are guilty as hell,” JBL said. “And the next time Finlay’s in a WWE ring – your ring – I’m going to make him admit it.” Video
Y2J-OK Raw General Manager William Regal made the road to WrestleMania XXIV a rough one for Chris Jericho. Y2J wanted entry into the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, but needed to defeat the red-hot Jeff Hardy to earn it in a qualifying match.
In a bout full of counters and near falls from both men, Y2J defeated the Intercontinental Champion to earn his second Money in the Bank berth (he participated in the inaugural match at WrestleMania 21). The two will cross paths once again in Orlando, Fla., at the Citrus Bowl, as Hardy qualified for Money in the Bank last week. Match preview | Video
A Showstopper for Orlando Shawn Michaels defeated former World Tag Team Champion Lance Cade by disqualification after his partner Trevor Murdoch interfered. The Showstopper clocked both Murdoch and Cade for their trouble.
After the match, Class of 2008 Hall of Fame inductee Ric Flair came to ringside to thank HBK for making the announcement last week. He then asked Michaels to wrestle him at WrestleMania XXIV in Orlando, Fla.
At first, he declined due to Mr. McMahon’s retirement stipulation placed on the Nature Boy’s matches. But he eventually relented, proudly accepting the challenge to face Flair on the Grandest Stage in sports-entertainment. Video | Match Preview
A Bothered Beau In a non-title battle between the World Tag Team Champions and their No. 1 contenders, Cody Rhodes & Hardcore Holly defeated Santino Marella & Carlito, thanks to Jerry “The King” Lawler’s invite for Marella’s Playboy-bound girlfriend to do some guest commentary.
As the new cover girl headed to the announcers’ position, Marella became distracted by Lawler’s invitation, which gave Holly the opportunity to score the pinfall with his Alabama Slam, leaving the Italian even more frustrated as the media attention flows to “his Maria."
Samoan crush Umaga is looking as dangerous as ever, dispatching DH Smith in short order on Raw with a devastating Samoan Spike.
After the match, GM William Regal announced that he’ll be sending Umaga to WrestleMania XXIV as Raw’s representative in a match for “brand superiority” against a SmackDown opponent yet to be named by brand GM Vickie Guerrero. Match preview | Video
Turnabout is fair Game In the night’s main event, the unlikely team of John Cena & Triple H defeated WWE Champion Randy Orton & Mr. Kennedy in a tag team brawl. Cena picked up the victory after trapping Mr. Kennedy in the STFU, but Kennedy made the former champ pay. As Cena and The Game stared each other down, the Green Bay gladiator snuck up on Cena and leveled him with the Mic Check, as The Game did nothing to intervene.
The night’s beginning foreshadowed its end. A photo-op among Cena, Triple H and Orton, who all want to walk out of a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania XXIV as WWE Champion, degenerated into a full-scale brawl. Full story |
