ORLANDO, Fla. – After coming so close to winning the WWE Championship – time after time – and being told by SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero that he doesn’t have what it takes to become WWE Champion, a recluse Jeff Hardy made it clear to the WWE Universe that he would use any means necessary to get another chance.

The Miz & John Morrison def. WWE Champion Triple H & Jeff Hardy (DQ) (PHOTOS) Jeff Hardy showed up to his tag team match determined to show Guerrero that he could overcome “The Dirt Sheet” stars on his own. Once Triple H tagged him in to the match, he refused to tag out again. When he was unable to score a pinfall and The Game came to his aid, Hardy snapped, causing the disqualification as he swung and threw a steel chair wildly at both Miz and Morrison.
Vladimir Kozlov def. Undertaker (DQ) (WATCH | PHOTOS) Determined to demonstrate the extreme nature of his cause, Jeff Hardy went on to sabotage the main event match between the undefeated Vladimir Kozlov and Undertaker. Hardy attacked the Moscow Mauler with a chair, simultaneously handing Kozlov a win by disqualification and an apparent chance at WWE Champion Triple H at Survivor Series. After the bell, the out of control Hardy danced with death, smashing The Phenom over the head as well. He then returned to Guerrero and secured himself an Extreme Rules Match next week against the legendary Deadman.
United States Champion Shelton Benjamin def. R-Truth – United States Championship (PHOTOS) The Gold Standard successfully survived an explosive onslaught by R-Truth, hitting his devastating Pay Dirt to reign supreme and retain his United States Championship.
Brie Bella def. Victoria (WATCH | PHOTOS) After Brie Bella beat Victoria with a surprise inside cradle, she once again sought refuge under the ring. When both Victoria and Natalya began dragging her out from completely different places, it was revealed that the mysterious Diva actually has a twin! The dynamic duo proceeded to give their opposition a simultaneous beat down. WWE.com has learned that Brie’s twin is named Nikki and has secured exclusive post match photos. Check back tomorrow for an exclusive photo shoot with the Bella sisters.
The Great Khali def. Montel Vontavious Porter (PHOTOS) The Great Khali and Ranjin Singh interrupted the VIP Lounge in order to treat the WWE Universe to another sizzling Kiss Cam. (WATCH | PHOTOS) Although MVP refused their invitation to stick around and stormed out – paving the way for the Punjabi Playboy to kiss two of Orlando’s sunniest sweethearts – the Ballin’ Superstar returned to get a few shots in. A vengeful Khali earned a victory over MVP with his mighty two-handed chokeslam, leaving his adversary one win short in his continued quest to earn his promised intensive bonus. With another mark in the loss column, will MVP earn his bonus by the Survivor Series deadline? Or will he have to pay back the multi-million dollar signing bonus from his original contract?
Ezekiel Jackson def. Jimmy Wang Yang (WATCH | PHOTOS) In retribution for Jimmy Wang Yang’s win by disqualification over The Brian Kendrick last week, Ezekiel Jackson manhandled the Asian redneck, ruthlessly hurling him into to the canvas for the pin. After the bell, Jackson’s associate once again treated Yang to The Kendrick.
After a great deal of speculation regarding his future with TNA Wrestling, it now appears Christian Cage will remain with the company. Backstage sources indicate that he did not intend to leave the company and reports coming out about his possible departure were untrue. Cage expressed to WWE officials that he had no interest in re-signing with them. TNA believes if Christian were to leave that he would have made his intentions known by now.
Awesome Kong, one of the focal parts of TNA's Knockout division recently got heat from management when her contract expired and she tried to play hardball and get a pay rise. TNA out right refused and gave her a verbal bashing for even considering it. It is believed she renewed at a similar deal as she originally signed, although her renewal is not 100% confirmed; they may still be in negotiations
Despite drawing consistently high ratings (many times the highest on Impact) the women make less than the male mid carders.
The feeling is that because Gail Kim has yet to show up in WWE they have less "well I'll go to WWE instead" bargaining power.
Taped in Orlando, FL [Q1] Footage aired of the last week’s happenings between the Main Event Mafia and the young stars of TNA…
The opening video aired and fireworks lit up the Impact Zone. Mike Tenay and Don West welcomed us to the show. The main event of Samoa Joe vs. Scott Steiner was plugged…
The music of the MEM hit and they came out to the ring. Kurt Angle introduced the “Hitman” of the MEM, Scott Steiner. Steiner came out in a suit to his own music. Steiner and Nash gave each other the old nWo finger bump.
Steiner gave a promo that only Steiner could give. He actually came across as more of a face than anything. He said the guys in the back go to “mark wrestling sites looking to see if you had a four or five star match.” He tore Styles and Joe a new one. You had to see this to believe it. He told the young guys the closest they would come to greatness was when they faced one of the members of the MEM.
Samoa Joe and a bunch of young guys came out to the stage. Joe said they might be offended if they could have understood half of what Steiner had to say. Funny. Joe said he would give Steiner something to talk about at the “Millionaire’s Club Circle Jerk” when he chokes him out tonight. Joe said Steiner was a nice free agent acquisition but they had one of their own. Christian Cage’s music hit and he came out to the stage.
Cage told Joe he did not and would not pick a side, but he was willing to lend a helping hand. Christian said the young guys just wanted the same opportunities that the established guys had. He then said he would win the Legend’s Title from Booker T, stand over him, and say, “I am legend.” Booker said Christian would be forced to join the MEM on Sunday and Booker would own his punk ass…
Twill’s Two Cents: That was, well, unspectacular. I guess we needed that to establish some things and Steiner was at his incoherent best, but I do not want to see a bunch of segments like that one. By the way, happy birthday to my favorite reader!
[Q2] Mick Foley and AJ Styles arrived at the arena. Foley said he had something to say to Styles but he wanted everyone to hear it… [C]
Tenay and West are standing up now. Did I miss that from last week? They ran down tonight’s card…
1. Booker T (with Sharmell) and Beer Money Inc. (with Jacqueline) defeated Christian Cage and The Motor City Machine Guns in 5:18. Why is Booker teaming with Beer Money? The Guns demonstrated their fast offense at the onset of the match. The heels gained the advantage and kept it for awhile on Sabin. Cage tagged in and worked over both tag team champions. Booker stayed on the apron.
Cage went for a frog splash but Roode pushed him off the top rope. Booker tagged in and Cage quickly hit a frog splash on him for a nearfall. Roode and Storm broke up the pinfall. Cage had the pin on Booker but Jacqueline distracted the referee. Booker used the Legend’s belt to knock Christian out for the win…
[Q3] JB interviewed Jeff Jarrett in his office. Jarrett said he and not Kurt Angle will decide when he steps back into the ring… [C]
Kurt Angle came into Jarrett’s office. Foley stood next to Jarrett. Angle told Jarrett he would never forget Bound for Glory and after he takes care of him, Foley was next on his hitlist. Angle mentioned what he might do to Jarrett’s daughters and Jarrett went off…
Backstage, Raisha Saeed and Awesome Kong laid out Roxxi. Taylor Wilde and JB hit the scene and JB ordered the show to go to commercial… [C]
Lauren tried to give us an update on Roxxi. I couldn’t help but notice that gigantic picture of Karen Angle in the trash in the background…
2. Matt Morgan and Abyss defeated Team 3D, LAX, and Tanahashi and Volador in a ladder match to earn a future shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championship in 7:54. The contract for the title shot was hanging above the ring… [C]
[Q4] Coming back from the break, Morgan was climbing the ladder but Team 3D tipped the ladder and dumped him to the floor. Hernandez dove over the top rope but missed and hit a standing ladder. Brother Ray hit a Rock Bottom on Abyss before inadvertently taking out the referee. Team 3D were on their way to winning when Beer Money gave them simultaneous low blows. Abyss climbed the ladder and grabbed the contract…
Mick Foley was shown walking through the backstage area… [C]
The latest Suicide video aired. He had nothing to say this time…
[Q5] TNA “Executive Shareholder” Mick Foley came out to the ring. Foley said it was nice to be back in the Impact Zone and it gave him a lot of pride to introduce AJ Styles. Styles joined Foley in the middle of the ring. Foley admitted that while he had heard of Styles six years ago, he was not completely sure of who Styles was.
Foley told us that Raven referred to Styles as “phenomenal.” He also called Sting one of the greatest champions of all time. He called Styles the “TNA President elect” of the young wrestlers. Foley hoped the ugliness between Styles and Sting would end. Sting’s music hit and he came out in his ring gear with the belt draped over his shoulder.
Sting said he respected Mick Foley for a variety of reasons. He told Foley that he has never lied to Foley and the young guys would disrespect him too. Styles called Sting spoiled and compared him to Ric Flair. Sting made it personal and talked about Styles’ son. Styles tried to go after Sting but Foley held him back… [C]
Backstage, Lauren asked Taylor what she was going to do. She said she was going to fight and dedicated the match to Roxxi. She turned straight into the boobs of Rhaka Khan. Khan offered up her services for the evening…
3. Awesome Kong and Raisha Saeed defeated Taylor Wilde and Rhaka Khan in 3:23. Taylor went right after Kong as the announcers put over a potential matchup between Khan and Kong. That was fast. Taylor had trouble with Kong but some success with Saeed.
[Q6] Taylor took a prolonged beating before tagging in Khan. They stared each other down before Khan chokeslammed Taylor. Kong hit the Implant Buster for the win…
JB interviewed Kevin Nash backstage. Nash said he knew Joe was a piece of shit when he ran down Scott Hall. Nash gave a great promo saying he was in the best shape of his life. He said he has faced Samoa Joes before but Joe has never faced Kevin Nash. He wanted to know if Joe was ready… [C]
Mike Tenay conducted a sit down interview with Sheik Abdul Bashir in what looked like an empty movie theatre. Bashir came across much better here than he has in his past promos. He said the way he looked has been a problem because of 9/11. He said he loved America and loved this country, but the people in this country have treated him unfairly.
Tenay told Bashir it was him that lobbied to have Bashir brought into the company. Bashir said nobody but him should take credit for his success. They started to argue and Bashir spoke to Tenay in his native language. Tenay yelled at him to speak English before security separated them…
Tenay and West ran down the card for Turning Point…
[Q7] The Main Event Mafia made their entrance. Eric Young, Consequences Creed, and Jay Lethal separately made their entrances… [C]
4. Sting, Kurt Angle, and Kevin Nash defeated Jay Lethal, Eric Young, and Consequences Creed in 4:06. All three members of the MEM had success with Lethal before Young tagged in and took out all three of his opponents. Creed tagged in and looked great in scoring a nearfall on Angle. Angle then hit an Angle Slam out of nowhere on Creed for the win…
Rhino cut a “Yay for the USA” promo on Sheik Abdul Bashir. He said he would deport him at the pay-per-view…
[Q8] A video aired focusing on the feud between the TNA Originals and the Main Event Mafia with an emphasis on Kevin Nash vs. Samoa Joe…
5. Scott Steiner defeated Samoa Joe in 8:11. Steiner wrestled in his shirt. I’m just sayin’. Joe attempted to lock in the rear naked choke but Steiner countered with a low blow. Steiner scored a nearfall with an overhead belly to belly suplex although it looked more like a released Northern Lights suplex. Steiner dropped an elbow for a one count before doing some pushups… [C]
As Joe took the advantage in the match, Kevin Nash hit the scene. Joe went after Nash and Steiner took over. Joe went after Nash with a suicide dive. Steiner loaded up with brass knuckles. He knocked out Joe for the win…
Nash mounted Joe after the match and hit multiple right hands. Styles came out with a chair to run off Nash and Steiner. The MEM came out and applauded their handy work…
A music video aired to hype Turning Point one last time…
Hazem Ali (Chicago (Illinois), 20 december 1978) is een Amerikaanse professionele worstelaar en wrestling manager die werkt voor World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), beter gekend met zijn worstelnaam Armando Estrada. Ali worstelt momenteel voor ECW.
Mike Adamle is done with WWE, at least for the short term. There is a good chance he won't be returning. The word backstage is that both WWE and Adamle came to an agreement that he was just not cut out for the business, so he was taken off television. Many found it fitting that on what was probably his final night with the company, he screwed up his lines in true Adamle fashion.
IGN.com recently conducted an interview with the WWE Women's Champion Beth Phoenix. She makes note of WWE bringing in Divas despite marginal experience. "There's more and more girls out there that want to be part of the business," Phoenix told IGN.com during a THQ media event this past week at Florida Championship Wrestling headquarters. "As far as the experience level of some of the WWE divas, there are girls who get rushed along in the process. They're beautiful and we want to get them on TV as soon as possible." She added, "Sometimes that doesn't leave for a lot of time for wrestling training. This isn't a business that you can pick up in a few weeks. This takes years of commitment, dedication, passion, and hard work. With that is WWE's road schedule that doesn't provide for enough in-ring time for the divas to develop. With our current grueling schedule, sometimes the way our girls come into WWE, it's with less experience than the training the guys get." She also commented on internet criticism regarding her character's appearance in the Smackdown vs. RAW 2009 video game. Phoenix said, "If you go read the comments on boards, there's a lot of criticism on my character. 'Oh, this isn't quite right. That's not updated.' And to me, that's so cool because it shows that people really care about this game. ... It's really been eye-opening - I get to interact a lot with WWE fans - and gaming fans are just as dedicated and devoted to the game."
Raw wrestler Chuck Palumbo's WWE contract is set to expire soon. Considering that Palumbo hasn't been talked about in months and is never used, the feeling is that it won't be renewed by WWE. Palumbo is already looking at life after WWE as he's got former Natural Born Thrillers members Jon Hugger (a.k.a. Johnny "The Bull" Stamboli) working on getting him in AAA, as well as Mark Jindrak (Marco Corleone) getting him in CMLL. Hugger is currently in AAA under his "Rellik" gimmick.
According to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Super Crazy quit WWE as of a few days ago. Crazy's decision was said to have come out of no where. He reportedly told WWE officials that he was unhappy with how he was being used and that he was promised pushes so many times that never materialized.
John Laurinaitis is said to have not taken it well reportedly telling Crazy that many wrestlers in Mexico want his spot. Crazy had told friends that even in his position, he was happy with the money, but was unhappy with the job. While he could collect on a few months based on the WWE's non-compete clause without having to work, he was said to be willing to waive that period as he wants to wrestle and is willing to waive the non-compete by signing that he won't go to TNA as he said that isn't his goal either
ECW Champion Matt Hardy def. Bam Neely (Non-title Match) Ricky Ortiz def. local athlete Finlay def. Mark Henry (Finlay earns ECW Championship opportunity)

ECW Champion Matt Hardy def.

Finlay def. Mark Henry (WATCH | PHOTOS) At the conclusion of Matt Hardy’s match, Finlay and Mark Henry both emerged to proclaim that they should to be the next Superstar to face the ECW Champion. As a result, ECW General Manager Theodore Long made an executive decision that the two Superstars would battle for a chance at the title in the night’s main event. After avoiding a splash that threatened both him and his son Hornswoggle, Finlay triumphed over Henry by bashing the World’s Strongest Man over the head with the shillelagh. The monumental victory earns the Belfast Brawler a chance at the Hardy’s gold next week.
Jack Swagger insults Tommy Dreamer and his family (PHOTOS) Following his huge victory over ECW Original Tommy Dreamer last week, “The All-American American” Jack Swagger proceeded to belittle the 19-year hardcore veteran, describing the many ways Dreamer is a “failure” before dropping the old ECW Championship into a trash can. However, when Swagger suggested Dreamer's twin daughters might become “failures” as well, the situation reached a boiling point. Dreamer charged into the ring in an enraged frenzy, smashing Swagger with the trash can before whacking him with the Singapore Cane, sending him from the ring in agony.
Ricky Ortiz def. local athlete (PHOTOS) Ricky Ortiz remained undefeated, making short work of a local athlete with the devastating Big O. The ever-building winning streak of this young Superstar stands as a continued monument to the amazing success of Long’s New Superstar Initiative.

TAMPA, Fla. – Raw’s three-hour 800th episode celebration was an explosive event, with highly anticipated battles featuring D-Generation X, The Miz & John Morrison, Batista, Chris Jericho, and 16 of the Sexiest Women on Television. The night also brought with it huge changes as the end of the night found Raw with no General Manager and a new, but familiar World Heavyweight Champion. WATCH all the action now in the Raw Quick Cut and check out WWE.com's exclusive ringside PHOTOS.
Chris Jericho def. Batista in a Steel Cage Match to become World Heavyweight Champion (PHOTOS | WATCH) In the night’s main event, Chris Jericho received a rematch against Batista for the World Heavyweight Championship he lost to The Animal at Cyber Sunday. The two Superstars faced off in a match where they had nowhere to run, and nowhere to hide inside a 15-foot steel cage. In spite of the thorough beating Jericho received at the hands of Batista little more than a week before, the first-ever Undisputed Champion managed to once again slip away with a win by way of his underhanded tactics, bludgeoning The Animal with a steel ring wrenched from the cage surrounding them.
Going into Survivor Series, Chris Jericho is once again World Heavyweight Champion, and as decreed by Shane McMahon, will defend his title against a returning John Cena. Shane’s sister Stephanie was bothered that he would make the match without consulting her first, but both of Mr. McMahon’s progeny agreed that they wished their father was there to enjoy the celebration of Raw’s milestone 800th episode.
Kane & Mark Henry def. Rey Mysterio & World Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston; The Great Khali emerged to aid Mysterio (PHOTOS) Rey Mysterio & World Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston put their high-flying and athletic maneuvers to the test on Raw as they faced off against the monstrous pair of Kane & Mark Henry. In spite of their speed and athleticism however, the Ultimate Underdog & the Jamaican Superstar were no match for the sheer mass and force of the Big Red Monster & the World’s Strongest Man. But after the contest, a Superstar with matching power, The Great Khali, emerged and shocked the WWE Universe by defending Mysterio from Kane & Henry, and even helping the Master of the 619 deliver his signature maneuver.
Undertaker def. JBL by count-out; Shawn Michaels threw JBL back into the ring, where Undertaker hit him with a Tombstone Piledriver (PHOTOS) When JBL was put in a match against SmackDown’s Undertaker, he put on a brave face. However, when it came time for the self-proclaimed “wrestling god” to actually face The Deadman, he wasn’t quite as courageous, allowing himself to be counted out, giving Undertaker the win. Before JBL could fully retreat back to the locker room area, however, he was accosted by Shawn Michaels. Furious at the Longhorn Loudmouth for assaulting him prior to their tag match last week, HBK threw Layfield back into the ring where Undertaker hit him with a Tombstone Piledriver.
World Tag Team Champion CM Punk def. Randy Orton by a disqualification due to interference from Priceless (PHOTOS) World Tag Team Champion CM Punk came to his match against Randy Orton eager to exact revenge for Orton causing him to lose the World Heavyweight Championship months ago. As the match progressed however, the team of Ted DiBiase, Cody Rhodes & Manu, emerged with a score of their own to settle, bitter over losing the World Tag Team Titles to Punk & Kofi Kingston the week before. DiBiase assaulted the Straightedge Superstar, causing the match to end in a disqualification. Orton was enraged that the third-generation Superstar caused him to lose the match, and punted DiBiase in the head as retaliation before making his way back to the locker room area. Later, Orton explained to a livid Cody Rhodes & Manu that the punt he dealt out to DiBiase was not only revenge for them interrupting his match, but also an attempt to kick some sense into the three competitors.
Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix, Layla, Katie Lea Burchill, Jillian, Maryse, Natalya, Victoria & Lena Yada def. Mae Young, Divas Champion Michelle McCool, Mickie James, Kelly Kelly, Candice Michelle, Eve, Brie Bella & Tiffany. (PHOTOS) Raw’s 800th episode celebration was also the setting for the biggest Divas competition in WWE history, a 16-Diva Tag Team Match. After the Divas made their entrance, the referee noticed that the team of Divas Champion Michelle McCool, Mickie James, Kelly Kelly, Candice Michelle, Eve, Brie Bella & Tiffany was short by one competitor. Luckily, WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young made her way to the ring, rounding out the team. Showing a complete lack of respect for the ring legend, Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix rolled up an unsuspecting Young, pinning her for the win.
D-Generation X def. The Miz & John Morrison (PHOTOS) As announced on Raw last week, The Miz & John Morrison, the self-proclaimed “greatest team of the 21st century,” faced D-Generation X as part of Raw’s 800th episode celebration. Prior to the match, Triple H & Shawn Michaels retaliated against Miz & Morrison for mocking them on ECW last week. Afterward, the self-proclaimed “chick magnet” & the Shaman of Sexy made their entrance and proceeded to give The Game & HBK a much tighter, competitive match than perhaps the ring legends had bargained for. In the end, however, D-Generation X maintained their status as one of WWE’s premier tag teams, defeating the “Dirt Sheet” duo.
Following the match, JBL pitched himself as the new Raw General Manager to Shane McMahon. While Shane didn’t give the self-made millionaire the position he wanted, he did put Layfield in a match against The Phenom himself, Undertaker, for later that night.
Vladimir Kozlov def. Charlie “The Hit Man” Haas (PHOTOS) Charlie Haas, continuing his trend of impersonating WWE Superstars, set his sights on WWE Hall of Famer Bret “The Hit Man” Hart. Despite declaring himself “the best there is, best there was and best there ever will be,” Charlie “The Hit Man” Haas was unable to stand up to the relentless assault of SmackDown’s undefeated Vladimir Kozlov, who meets Undertaker this Friday on SmackDown.
Mike Adamle resigns as General Manager; Randy Orton, fully healed, to face CM Punk on Raw (PHOTOS) Shane McMahon appeared on Raw to address Randy Orton’s ultimatum that either General Manager Mike Adamle goes, or he does. Before Shane could make his decision however, Adamle himself approached, regretting his behavior from the week before, when he slapped Orton as a response to insults directed at his family and character. The General Manager went on to resign from his position, leaving Randy Orton and Shane McMahon in the ring. Shane then addressed Orton, revealing that the recuperating Superstar had actually already been medically cleared to compete. As the Legend Killer’s first match back, Shane set a contest between him and the Superstar Orton punted in the head, costing him the World Heavyweight Title: CM Punk. Later in the evening, former GM Mike Adamle took a moment to speak with Stephanie McMahon, blaming her megalomaniacal tendencies for his resignation.
William Regal won an Eight-Man Battle Royal to earn a title match against Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella next week (PHOTOS) In order to determine who should receive an Intercontinental Championship opportunity, a Battle Royal was held between Cryme Tyme, Jamie Noble, Snitsky, William Regal and Priceless. Though he was in the ring with two prominent tag teams, Regal managed to be the last Superstar left in the ring, throwing Ted DiBiase over the top rope after the “Priceless” Superstar eliminated both of his tag team partners, Cody Rhodes & Manu. Fittingly, the 2008 King of the Ring will compete against Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella next week, in Regal’s homeland of the United Kingdom.
Matt Hardy & Jeff Hardy def. MVP & The Brian Kendrick (PHOTOS) Raw’s 800th episode celebration opened with a match featuring one of the most extreme and exciting tag teams in WWE history: Matt Hardy and his brother, Jeff Hardy. The two ring warriors squared off against a team of SmackDown Superstars, MVP & The Brian Kendrick. However, even with the presence of Kendrick’s associate, Ezekiel Jackson, the Hardys were able to soar to victory in their trademark risk-taking style.
David Michael Bautista, Jr. (Arlington (Virginia), 18 januari 1969) is een Amerikaanse professionele worstelaar die werkt voor World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), beter gekend met zijn worstenaam Batista. Batista worstelt momenteel voor RAW.
David kwam in contact met worstelen toen hij Tyrone Talarico en Road Warrior Animal (beiden worstelaars) ontmoette op een bodybuildingbeurs en maakte zijn debuut in 1997. Zijn finishing move is de Batista Bomb (sitout powerbomb).
RAW Op 23 juni werd Batista tijdens de WWE Draft naar RAW geloot waar hij de week erop direct een impact maakte. Hij gaf Edge een pak slaag waardoor CM Punk zijn Money in the Bank-koffer kon incasseren om World Heavyweight Champion te worden. Batista vond dat Punk de titel voor een groot deel aan hem te danken had en na zijn overwinning op drie anderen (John Cena, JBL en Kane) in een Fatal Four Way Match daagde hij Punk uit voor de titel op The Great American Bash. De partij liep echter uit op een diskwalificatie door de aanval van Kane op Batista, waardoor Punk zijn titel behield.
Batista raakte na de Bash in een vete met John Cena, die hem in een gevecht met JBL per ongeluk sloeg. De nieuwe General Manager van RAW, Mike Adamle, boekte de twee vervolgens in een partij voor SummerSlam. Op 4 augustus wonnen Cena en Batista wonnen de World Tag Team Championship van Ted DiBiase en Cody Rhodes, maar een week later verloren ze de titel terug aan diezelfde twee. Op SummerSlam wist Batista Cena te verslaan. Op 26 oktober 2008 Cyber Sunday versloeg hij Chris Jericho voor de World Heavyweight Championship. Ondertussen verloor hij die dan weer aan Jericho in een steel cage match.

As we reported earlier, TNA Wrestling released two of its backstage agents over the weekend for budget reasons - Pat Kenney (Simon Diamond) and Glenn Gilbertti (Disco Inferno). ProWrestling.net reports that there are concerns within TNA that more talent cuts are on the way. TNA has roughly 60 wrestlers under contract with only a two-hour weekly show to fill. TNA talent was said to be "shocked" with Pat Kenny's release, as he's been described as the company's number 1 agent. "He had seniority. His contract was coming up and they just kept putting it off."
TNA Knockout Angelina Love was shaken up following a shot to the throat from Christy Hemme during their match at Monday's Impact taping (which aired this past Thursday), reports prowrestling.NET. It was quite obvious that Love suffered the injury early in the match as she was seen clutching her throat and was limited for the rest of the contest as a result. Love was said to be feeling better the next day and is not expected to miss any ring time.
TNA has released Glenn Gilberti and Pat Kenney, reports prowrestling.NET. The two road agents were released this past Friday. The reason given for the firing is that the company is making budgetary cuts. With the departures of the two, that leaves Dutch Mantel, Jim Cornette, Savio Vega, and BG James as the remaining agents in TNA. Although, Kenney and Mantel were the only agents to go on the road at house show events.
