Former WWE Star Signs TNA Contract Posted by Bobby Spade on 07/13/2008 at 12:40 PM
Jeremy Borash appeared on "The Pain Clinic" radio show over the weekend (available at FeelThePain.net) to talk about TNA. During his appearance, he notes that TNA has signed Daivari to a contract, so we're going to be seeing more of him after the World X Cup concludes tonight at Victory Road. When Daivari originally parted ways with WWE last October, one of his goals was to join TNA.

BATON ROUGE, La. – Edge & SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero reconciled in front of our fans in New Orleans – after the Rated-R Superstar escaped serious injury at the hands of Big Show in a No Disqualification Match.
With Guerrero watching at ringside, Big Show used his size and strength to overpower Edge, and when The World’s Largest Athlete prepared to deliver a Con-Chair-To to Edge, Guerrero showed her heart still belonged to Edge, stopping the match and protecting the Rated-R Superstar – quite the change from the beginning of the night.
The GM had made the match after she had heard enough from her apparently former fiancé, who began the night by telling the world he was happier standing on his own and that Vickie was not good enough for him. The Ultimate Opportunist then said at The Great American Bash, he would prove all his critics wrong and defeat Triple H to win the WWE Championship.
It was then that Vickie Guerrero used her power as General Manager to place Edge into the match, and she had only one thing to say to the Rated-R Superstar, “good luck, baby.”
Family favor Chavo Guerrero has taken advantage of his relation to Vickie Guerrero on more than one occasion, and on SmackDown, the self-proclaimed “Mexican Warrior” tried to use that bond once more – earning himself a match with WWE Champion Triple H. The Game was in top form in his first match on Friday Night SmackDown since being drafted, delivering a Pedigree to Chavo Guerrero to get the win.
Golden standards In a fast-paced, high-flying, non-title encounter, Shelton Benjamin defeated United States Champion Matt Hardy, putting his name into the mix of Superstars who want the opportunity to wear championship gold. The match saw both men taking chances to gain momentum, and when Hardy attempted his patented Twist of Fate, Benjamin blocked it and then took advantage of an over-aggressive Hardy to seal the victory.
Bulldozed Another one of SmackDown’s new additions, Mr. Kennedy defeated Domino using the Mic Check, with his former friend MVP sitting at ringside doing commentary. Before the match, Kennedy had referred to himself as, “more valuable than MVP,” drawing the ire of the flashy Franchise Playa. After the win, Kennedy and the Ballin’ Superstar exchanged words with each other, and as Kennedy went to leave, Umaga — much to the delight of MVP — attacked him.
Devious Diva duo Now knowing that she will face Michelle McCool at Great American Bash for the newly created Divas Championship, Natalya teamed with Maryse on SmackDown, intent to send a strong message to McCool. The All-American Diva had Cherry by her side, but Natalya used a Sharpshooter, made famous by her uncle, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, to force Cherry to submit. After the match, Natalya made a statement by laying out McCool on the outside, just feet from the Divas Championship. Will McCool find retribution before the two do battle at “The Bash”?
Balancing acts In the long-standing rivalry between Finlay & Hornswoggle and the WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison, each team has earned victory at the other’s expense, giving neither a true advantage. On SmackDown, the back-and-forth battle continued, with the Irishman and his son winning a non-title match when Finlay used the shillelagh and Hornswoggle delivered the Tadpole Splash to Miz.
Bell-ringing retribution Jesse & Festus were looking to right the wrong done to them last week when after their victory, they were attacked by Curt Hawkins, Zack Ryder & Edge. With Festus in his stoic state, the duo was left wide open for the vicious attack. On SmackDown, Jesse & Festus once more earned a victory over Hawkins & Ryder, and when Edge’s cohorts attacked again, Jesse evened the odds by ringing the bell, transforming the “corn-fed colossus,” who then cleared the ring of Hawkins & Ryder.
Massive mauling The undefeated Vladimir Kozlov continued his impressive streak on SmackDown, when he defeated Stevie Richards. The Moscow Mauler’s path of destruction has seen Kozlov annihilate anyone he steps into the ring with, using his wide repertoire of offense to remain unblemished. How long will Kozlov carry on the hot streak? Will anyone step up and face the Moscow Mauler?
“iMPACT!” RESULTS AND VIDEO FOR THURSDAY, JULY 10: STING WILL BE THERE THIS SUNDAY, TAYLOR NEW WOMEN'S CHAMP AND MORE! By Charles Rice
With Victory Road live on Pay-Per-View this Sunday, the stars of TNA pulled out all the stops this week on iMPACT! in hopes having one last swing of momentum go their ways. It was not only an exciting night in the iMPACT! Zone, but a historic one as well.
The night kicked off with Robert Roode of Beer Money inc. taking on one half of the TNA Tag Team Champions LAX’s, Homicide in a street fight. In the end there was interference from both “Cowboy” James Storm and Hernandez after Homicide had been handcuffed and whipped with a belt. This Sunday, in the Fan’s Revenge match the gold is on the line. But for LAX it will be all about revenge.
At the end of that match Sting was seen staring on from the rafters and TNA fans were promised he would make his return later on in the evening.
In a very exciting and hard hitting match, it was Kip James, Tomko, and X Division Champion, Pettey Williams taking on B.G. James, Matt Morgan, and Eric Young. This match was too big to be contained in the six sided ring and spilled out not only around the ring but in the crowd as well. In the end it was Tomko, Kip, and Pettey that had their hands raised in victory. That was not enough for Tomko and Pettey though. After the match they were about to attack Eric Young with a lead pipe when Abyss’s music began to play he came out and began attacking Tomko. It looked as if he was about to use the lead pipe when he began to second guess himself. What is going on in the mind of Abyss? That is the question that has been on everyone’s mind since he made his return at Slammiversary.
With the World X Cup tournament still going on it was Team International picking up a win over Team Japan and Team TNA picking up the win over Team Mexico. All teams will be vying for the World X Cup this Sunday in Houston.
In a very historic match it was TNA newcomer Taylor who made history. Not only did she finally topple the mighty Awesome Kong to win the open challenge and the $25,000, but she also became the new TNA Knockouts Champion. Only time will tell if she is the real deal or not, because Kong will get a rematch this Sunday in Houston.
Before the main event of the night, Booker T called Joe out to the ring where he apologized in advance for what he was going to do to him in Houston. Joe went on to tell Booker that he was going to be sorry for ever calling him out. He went on to say he was going to make him sorry in front of all his friends in family in Houston. Before the two could finish their battle of words, they were interrupted by “The Icon” Sting. He told them both he would be at Victory Road to watch their match but refused to say why.
Through out the night Kurt Angle had been becoming more and more frustrated with his tag team partners for the main event of the night, The Beautiful People. This is because both Angelina Love and Velvet Sky were more concerned with looking pretty and tanning than getting ready for their match against AJ Styles, ODB, and Gail Kim. In the end it would cost them because it was Kim who picked up the win pinning Velvet Sky.
However, as the three were having their hands raised in victory, Angle and the Beautiful People attacked and it looked like Kurt was going to get the ankle lock on AJ, only to have it interrupted with a low blow from Karen Angle of all people. In the end Frank Trigg came to Kurt’s aid and he was able to lock on the ankle lock as iMPACT! went off the air.
SmackDown wrestler Brian Kendrick may be getting a bodyguard, reports prowrestling.NET. Kendrick worked a dark match with Funaki prior to last night's SmackDown/ECW taping and brought out a bodyguard. His name is Rycklon Stephens and he is currently under a developmental contract working for Florida Championship Wrestling. Stephens may be the most muscular guy in the entire company as he is billed at 305 pounds.
Finlay def. WWE Tag Team Champion The Miz Braden Walker def. Armando Estrada Evan Bourne def. Nunzio ECW Champion Mark Henry vs. Tommy Dreamer (double count-out)
BATON ROUGE, La. – WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas made a special, Extreme appearance on Tuesday night as a guest ring announcer on ECW on Sci Fi during a non-title match between Tommy Dreamer and ECW Champion Mark Henry. While Atlas exchanged words with Henry earlier in the evening, and Dreamer offered Atlas a chance to be in the ECW Original’s corner, Atlas proved to be more than a guest ring announcer on Tuesday night.
Dreamer, who was seeking revenge on Henry for beating Colin Delaney, causing the Original to lose a chance at the ECW Title, was crushed by the World’s Strongest Champion, thanks to help from Atlas. After Delaney attempted to trip Henry, Atlas tossed the youngster into the announce table, distracting Dreamer. The ECW Champ took advantage of the situation, delivering a World’s Strongest Slam to Dreamer. WWE Hall of Famer Atlas celebrated in the ECW ring with the Extreme Champion. With a Hall of Famer in his corner, who will stop the World’s Strongest Champ? (WATCH)
Also on Tuesday night, as WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison boasted about their in and out of the ring talents, they were interrupted by Finlay & Hornswoggle. Hornswoggle blasted the WWE Tag Team Champs with a water pistol, and his father attacked them with a shillelagh, much to our Baton Rouge fans’ delight. Their disruption turned into a match, thanks to ECW General Manager Theodore Long. Finlay continued his winning streak, defeating The Miz, thanks to the help of his son’s distraction. Will the father and son duo continue their hot streak or will the WWE Tag Team Champions prevail in this heated rivalry?
Still seething after his loss to Ricky Ortiz last week on ECW, former GM Armando Estrada demanded a rematch against the newcomer. But new GM Long had another thing on his mind – ECW’s New Superstar Initiative. Long forced the contract-less Estrada to face ECW’s newest Superstar, Braden Walker. Once again, Estrada was defeated by another new Extreme Superstar. Will Estrada ever be able to prove himself in the Land of the Extreme? How will successful newcomer Walker affect Tuesday nights? (WATCH)
Finally, Evan Bourne, another ECW Superstar looking to make a name for himself, picked up a win. Bourne faced Nunzio on Tuesday night, and the young high-flyer proved he wasn’t bothered by a recent loss to Mike Knox. Bourne, who says he defies the odds by defying gravity, rekindled his confidence after defeating Nunzio with a soaring shooting star. What’s next for this newcomer in the Land of the Extreme?
Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms has a cryptic clock posted on his Myspace account. The caption of the clock reads "It's almost time!" This could be an indication that Helms is nearing a return to the ring. For those unaware, Helms has been out of action with a neck injury for over a year.

Mickie Knuckles - Moose in TNA - underwent successful knee surgery today, reports PWInsider.com. Despite the operation taking longer than expected due to the muscle mass in her leg, doctors successfully placed a titanium rod in to hold the bones in place while it heals.
Knuckles suffered a broken femur bone in her right leg after jumping off a balcony at a local IWA show and despite it being a risky move, reports say that TNA still wants to sign her once she recovers. Her expected time for recovery and rehabilitation is six months, but she should be able to leave the hospital with the support of crutches within the next few days.
Despite being in quite a bit of pain, Knuckles is said to be in high spirits.
Jason Powell of Prowrestling.net is reporting that TNA has released James Mitchell from the company. Mitchell who is the former manager of Abyss hasn't been on TNA TV since the Against All Odds PPV back in February.
Rey Mysterio def. Santino Marella WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James & Kelly Kelly def. Jillian & Layla World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk def. Snitsky Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston def. Charlie Haas Batista def. John Cena, Kane and JBL in a Fatal Four Way
NEW ORLEANS - Raw this Monday opened with a special message from Stephanie McMahon, who expressed a desire for everyone on Raw to work together in the absence of the WWE Chairman. In spite of several unexpected occurrences, such as a lighting accident and a fan who managed to make his way into the backstage area, the show moved forward, with two new matches set for The Great American Bash, including a World Heavyweight Title Match between current champion CM Punk and his challenger, Batista.
Blind Fury The rivalry between Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho had reached a fever pitch of late after Y2J smashed HBK’s head into the JeriTron-6000, severely injuring Michaels’ eye. The two have continued to have confrontations in recent weeks, with the rivalry culminating on this week’s Raw as the brand’s second Great American Bash Match was established. The Showstopper accepted Jericho’s challenge to face him in two weeks, even though he only has one good eye. Michaels went on to tell Jericho that even though he has had a fantastic career and won every title he’s ever gone after, he will never be HBK. (WATCH)
Snitsky gets Punk’d At the beginning of Monday night’s show, World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk endured a tirade and a slap from SmackDown’s Vickie Guerrero for having won the World Title from Edge. The Straightedge Superstar went on to have another altercation in the locker room area, this time with Snitsky. The Straightedge Superstar went on to suggest that the two face in the ring that very night. Punk defeated the yellow-toothed monster in a non-title match, proving exactly why he deserves to hold the World Championship around his waist.
Mysterio’s Raw Debut Another new member of the Monday night roster, Rey Mysterio, had his very first match as a Raw Superstar. Last week, the Master of the 619 was interrupted by Santino Marella, who went on to insult and degrade Mysterio. When the Ultimate Underdog had enough, he leapt into action, shutting up the Italian Superstar. This week, Mysterio continued to show Marella that he isn’t an athlete that you should underestimate as he defeated his opponent handily. (WATCH)
Kofi Tastes the Curb Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston also experienced a win on Monday night by defeating Charlie Haas in a non-title match. Though the Jamaican Superstar tasted victory, he didn’t have a chance to enjoy it before Paul Burchill rushed into the ring, performing his vicious Curb Stomp on the Intercontinental Champion.
Chain Gang Carjack Before they faced off in a Fatal Four Way Match, John Cena and JBL had an added altercation, involving the self-made millionaire’s limo. Cena, with some help from Cryme Tyme, worked over JBL’s private automobile with crowbars and baseball bats, before the Longhorn Loudmouth stomped off to prepare for their match. (WATCH)
Raw’s New Divas Before the incident with JBL’s limo, Cena relaxed near the locker room area with WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James, as Mickie prepared for a Divas tag match. The two were soon approached by Mickie’s partner for the night: Kelly Kelly. Mickie explained that the former ECW Diva had just joined the Raw roster, after which the two went to go face Jillian & Layla in the ring. Though Mickie & Kelly are a new team, they showed that they know how to work together, picking up a win over their competitors.
The Animal Unleashed Monday night ended with a long, brutal Fatal Four Way Match between John Cena, Batista, Kane and JBL. In spite of such fierce competition, The Animal won the match by pinning Kane, who went on a bizarre rampage outside the ring, assaulting WWE Production crew and announcers alike. (WATCH) Read more
