It is a past that he proudly shares with them. He has even accepted that they are the current faces and stars of TNA today. Mick says that he usually does not agree with their point of view. Over the last few weeks, the nWo: The nExt Generation might be the greatest assemblage of wrestlers to ever set foot in the ring. That is why he made a major investment in the TNA originals. For the first time, he sees the possibility that Kurt Angle and the Gray Panthers are the future of TNA. Mick says that it was never his intention to play favorites. He tries to breath some life into the originals to get them things that were denied the younger generation. Mick says that Final Resolution could be their time for Final Restitution.

Jeff says that he was coaxed into the ring once, and he will not sit back and watch Angle tear apart what he built from the ground up. Jarrett says that as bad as Angle wants him in the ring, Jarrett says that he wants Kurt out of the company. Jarrett says that he cannot fire Angle, but he can make him an offer that Kurt can’t refuse. Jarrett mentions Angle’s match with Rhino, but Jarrett suggests an added stipulation. If Angle wins at Final Resolution, Angle can face Jarrett; but if Rhino wins, Angle’s contract is null and void. Angle slaps Jarrett and then Jarrett points at Angle and Angle turns into a GORE.
- Jeff Hardy was interviewed this week by Lou Ramirez of of San Antonio, Texas radio station KJ97 FM. Hardy talks about a number of topics, including whether he'll be wrestling in 5 years (he says maybe), Mike Adamle's first WWE TV appearance where he called Jeff "Jest Hervey" and more. You can hear the interview at KJ97.com.
-- Jeff Hardy was also interviewed this week by Brian Fritz of OrlandoSentinel.com. Hardy told Fritz what winning the WWE Championship would mean to him. "It would mean the world, definitely, because from our childhood that’s always been a dream to become the world champion. I’ve had a lot of titles in the past and to complete the collection would be great before it’s all said and done, before I’m done in the ring."
Hardy adds, "It would be great to say I have been WWE Champion. Hopefully – I’m on the verge of that. I’ve come close so many times and there is an interesting story in there. I think that’s why a lot of people are attached to it and they want to see me succeed in that light. But if I never do, I won’t downgrade myself or think low of myself because I have accomplished a lot and I have a lot to be proud of. I’m proud of who I am and what I’ve done."

The idea of Sho Funaki's new "Kung Fu Naki" actually came from Funaki himself, who has been pitching the character to creative for several years now. ProWrestling.net reports that Funaki has been showing up to WWE television for years with the same piece of paper that had his ideas of the gimmick. Vince McMahon shot down the idea countless times but for whatever reason, it finally got the green light.
There has reportedly been talk within TNA about releasing some undercard talents who aren't being used on a regular basis. While there has always been talk of releasing undercard talent that aren't featured in TV roles regularly, these discussions have become more frequent in the last few days than ever before. Whether TNA would make these cuts publicly or quietly remains to be seen, although most in the past were done quietly.
DJ Gabriel – the newest member of ECW General Manager Theodore Long's New Superstar Initiative – made his debut on last night's edition of ECW on Sci Fi. With former wedding planner Alicia Fox in his corner, Gabriel defeated Sal Rinauro with the European uppercut, which is apparently his finishing maneuver. Gabriel is Steve Lewington, and was signed to a developmental contract following the spring 2007 European tour in which he wrestled Umaga at the UK Raw taping. WWE signed a handful of European wrestlers following this particular tour including Lewington, Drew McIntyre, Sheamus O'Shaunessy, Hade Vansen, Chris Gray and Tommy Taylor. It looks like Lewington is the first wrestler of the group to actually make it in WWE as McIntyre was quickly sent back to developmental following a handful of matches. Gray & Taylor have since been released, Vansen is M.I.A., and Drew McIntyre & Sheamus are still plying their trade in Florida Championship Wrestling. Lewington also appeared as a jobber on Raw during WWE's two tours of England in 2005. Carlito beat him up during a Cabana segment and he once wrestled Kurt Angle as a jobber.
WWE concluded its very successful European tour this past weekend, running 22 dates and grossing somewhere between $12 million and $14 million. This makes the tour one of the most, if not the most, successful overseas tour in the company's history. Almost all tickets were sold months ago so the economy didn't play a factor in these numbers. A higher percentage of kids were spotted at the shows than during previous European tours.
-- WWE held another round of Wellness drug tests before the WWE Raw and ECW taping on Monday night in Atlanta. With the company looking to cut $20 million from their budget, this would be a very bad time for anybody to test positive.

But, the ECW Original answered back with a kick to Swagger’s stomach and a painful DDT. The referee disqualified Dreamer, who stood tall as he declared to Swagger, “Oops, my bad, you win,” with a satisfied look on his face. Swagger later demanded that ECW General Manager Theodore Long give him a rematch. Long responded that since the contest had been in Swagger’s style, it would only be fair that the rematch be on Dreamer’s terms – namely an Extreme Rules Match. (WATCH)
DJ Gabriel def. local athlete (PHOTOS) The extremely confident DJ Gabriel – the newest member of GM Theodore Long’s New Superstar Initiative – was victorious in his ECW debut, dancing his way to a very impressive win over a local athlete with the former wedding planner Alicia Fox in his corner.

Additionally, Layla was nowhere to be seen in "Stephanie McMahon's Raw Superstar Forum" at the start of the broadcast, and practically every active Raw performer was present in the ring.
-- Last night's edition of Raw saw Dolph Ziggler make his return to WWE television. He was seen in the ring during "Stephanie McMahon's Raw Superstar Forum," made an appearance backstage while Shawn Michaels and Rey Mysterio made their way out to the ring for their tag match, and was one of the lumberjacks at ringside for the CM Punk vs. Randy Orton match. Ziggler was suspended for 30 days on Friday, October 10 as a result of his first violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. Ziggler was eligible to return at last week's Raw taping in England, but did not make the trip to Europe. Ziggler made his first wrestling related appearance at last Thursday's Florida Championship Wrestling television taping in a loss to Johnny Curtis. Ziggler also worked a live event over the weekend for FCW.
As reported earlier, ECW Champion Matt Hardy is nursing a sore knee but worked through it during WWE's European tour this past week. Hardy hyper-extended his surgically repaired left knee during a commercial break in his ECW Championship match with Finlay last week, which was taped last Monday in Manchester. On his MySpace blog, Hardy wrote:
I fortunately retained the ECW Championship in a hard-hitting, fantastic match against the veteran Irishman. Unfortunately, something none of you at home witnessed-because it happened during a commercial break period-was me painfully hyper-extending my surgically repaired left knee. I continued that match without acknowledging it to anyone but knew I had hurt it. After the match, I was examined and diagnosed with a slightly torn PCL and stretched ligaments in the back of my knee. I could finished the tour out, but had to do some major treatment, wrapping and bracing of my knee. And by the way, I thought going into this day I had tomorrow off because it was a Smackdown only taping. I find out at the end of the night I'm needed tomorrow for both episodes of Smackdown. I guess that's what you get for being a WORKHORSE, HA! Now I already have the stress of an extremely hard trip plus a knee injury. Welcome to the wrestling business boys and girls. I felt much better when I got back to the hotel, my Smackdown crew got in, and the ECW, Raw, and Smackdown crews hit the hotel bar. I think the entire WWE drank every ounce of alcohol and liquor in Manchester that night! LOL!
Day 6 Manchester, England - I wake up and my knee feels absolutely horrible. I can barely walk. It's one of those moments when I ask myself how am I gonna do this.. How am I gonna perform tonight. After soaking and icing and treating and wrapping and bracing my knee thoroughly, somehow I do. I wrestled Shelton Benjamin in a Champion versus Champion match and came out victorious. I thought it was a helluva match as well. In case you're wondering, I was in excruciating pain the whole time. I also wrestled another tag match that will be featured on this week's Smackdown. I also wanna tell everyone that I was extremely proud of Jeff on this day as he had possible his best TV day performance EVER. That night, a little social time was had-but I actually got a good night's sleep. I had to-my knee and my performances for the week were depending on it.
Randy Orton def. World Tag Team Champion CM Punk in a Lumberjack Match ECW Champion Matt Hardy vs. Intercontinental Champion William Regal ended by a double count-out JBL & Kane def. Cryme Tyme The Miz & John Morrison def. Shawn Michaels & Rey Mysterio Batista def. Manu Kelly Kelly def. Victoria
ATLANTA – With Raw back in the USA after last week's show in Manchester, England, everyone’s mind was on this Sunday’s Survivor Series. This came as no surprise since with three Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Matches, including one pitting the Divas of Raw against SmackDown’s, most of the WWE roster is involved in one way or another. In a night with multiple tag team matches, many of these ring warriors had an opportunity to learn something of their opponents prior to the pay-per-view. The most heated confrontation, however, was between CM Punk and a now fully-recovered Randy Orton, who had cost the Straightedge Superstar his World Heavyweight Championship at Unforgiven by way of a punt to the head.

Randy Orton def. World Tag Team Champion CM Punk in a Lumberjack Match; a massive brawl broke out following the contest (PHOTOS | WATCH) Before World Tag Team Champion CM Punk was to face Randy Orton in the night’s main event, 30 WWE Superstars came out and surrounded the ring as lumberjacks for the match. Though he is still just recently recovered, the Legend Killer pulled out a win over the Straightedge Superstar, dashing Punk’s hopes of exacting revenge for Orton costing him the World Heavyweight Championship. Following the match, a Superstar who has his own problems with the third-generation ring warrior, Batista, entered the ring to attack Orton, leading all of the Superstars present to get involved in what became an out-of-control brawl that ended the show.
ECW Champion Matt Hardy vs. Intercontinental Champion William Regal ended by a double count-out (PHOTOS) New Intercontinental Champion William Regal came to the Raw ring already soured by what he perceived as a poor reception from the WWE Universe. He faced off against ECW Champion Matt Hardy in a non-title match that gave both ring warriors an opportunity to size up one of their Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match opponents. Though both champions fought ferociously, the match ended with no definitive winner, as the two Superstars were counted out simultaneously and continued to brawl after the bell.
Evan Bourne and World Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston were assaulted by Mike Knox (PHOTOS) Earlier in the evening, Evan Bourne appeared on Raw to address the ankle injury he suffered three weeks ago. After revealing that he is rapidly improving and should be back in the ring in just a matter of months, new Raw Superstar Mike Knox made his way out to the stage, where he stared intently at the high-flyer before walking away ominously. Later, the Desert Destroyer again caught up with Bourne, and proceeded to attack both the injured Superstar and World Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston, leaving both men writhing on the floor in agony.
JBL & Kane def. Cryme Tyme (PHOTOS) In another match that gives the WWE Universe a taste of what they should see this weekend, the reluctant partnership of JBL & Kane faced Cryme Tyme – two teams that will be on opposing sides of one of Sunday’s Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Matches. Captain JBL gained the psychological advantage going into Survivor Series by pinning Cryme Tyme’s JTG.
The Miz & John Morrison def. Shawn Michaels & Rey Mysterio (PHOTOS) After greeting Dolph Ziggler in the locker-room area, the tag team of Shawn Michaels & Rey Mysterio made their way to the squared circle as the two ring warriors prepared to tag with one another for the first time ever. HBK & the Ultimate Underdog faced off against two Superstars who claim to be the greatest tag team in the world: The Miz & John Morrison. Though they were defeated by Triple H & Michaels two weeks ago in a DX reunion, the self-proclaimed “chick magnet” and the Shaman of Sexy tasted victory by defeating The Showstopper & the Master of the 619.
Batista def. Manu (PHOTOS) Last week on Raw, Batista defeated Cody Rhodes and went on to spear his Priceless partner, Manu when it looked as if the second-generation Superstar might get involved. Manu was given a chance to redeem himself as he faced off against Batista in what was an extremely competitive match due to the young Samoan Superstar’s ferocity and motivation. After the match, Cody Rhodes contemplated getting involved, but instead walked away from the ring, saving his ire for the Survivor Series match this weekend when he, Randy Orton and others will take on Team Batista.
Kelly Kelly def. Victoria; Victoria retaliated but was assaulted by the Raw Divas (PHOTOS) In a preview of this Sunday’s Divas Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match, Kelly Kelly took on SmackDown’s Victoria. Though Kelly produced a win with her rapidly improving in-ring abilities, the SmackDown Diva attacked her opponent after the bell. Kelly’s fellow Raw Divas ran to her rescue though, as even Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix put her differences aside to jump into the fray against one of her Survivor Series opponents.
Stephanie McMahon held a Raw Superstar Forum (PHOTOS) Giving WWE Superstars a chance to ask questions in the wake of former GM Mike Adamle’s resignation, Stephanie McMahon took her place at a podium before the entire Raw roster on Monday night. The WWE Executive Vice President went on to back her brother Shane’s decision that Chris Jericho defend the World Heavyweight Championship against the returning John Cena at Survivor Series. McMahon also made the night’s main event between CM Punk and Randy Orton a Lumberjack Match in an effort to make sure the fight stays in the ring and yields a definitive winner. After Santino Marella’s request for another Intercontinental Title rematch was denied, a fight broke out between opposing Survivor Series captains Shawn Michaels and JBL when HBK launched himself at the self-made millionaire.
Justin LaRouche (born June 18, 1975) is an American professional wrestler, currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), working on its ECW brand under the name Bam Neely (a take off of retired professional ice-hockey player Cam Neely's nickname). He debuted by attacking then-ECW Champion Kane.
Independents LaRouche started his career wrestling in the tag team known as the Hellraisers. He wrestled under the name Hellraiser Gutz and was trained and mentored by his uncle Richard Martin, who wrestled as Hellraiser Blood. They traveled across the United States, winning several tag team championships from the numerous independent promotions around the country and were the main event draw in almost every city that they appeared in for nearly a decade. However, LaRouche struck out as singles wrestler due to Martin suffering a career-ending illness. He began wrestling as Magnus Maximus in Ace Steel's Steel Domain Wrestling in 2002.
World Wrestling Entertainment
Developmental territories He entered the business alongside such names as Ken Anderson, Austin Aries, Colt Cabana, Shawn Daivari, CM Punk, and Lenny Lane before signing with WWE's former developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling under the name Justin "The Ox" LaRouche, where he won the OVW Southern Tag Team Championships with Charles "The Hammer" Evans. They would lose the titles to the Major Brothers, who ironically became members of La Familia (as the Rated-R Entourage of Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder), the stable which he would join upon making his WWE debut.
ECW brand LaRouche made his WWE television debut on the ECW brand on April 8, 2008 when after Kane and Guerrero signed the contract for their ECW Championship rematch at Backlash, LaRouche stormed the ring, aiding Guerrero (as well as Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder) in beating down Kane and putting him through a table.
It was then explained that LaRouche, now using the name Bam Neely, was a former border guard, and was hired as a bodyguard by Chavo to help him win back the ECW Championship as well as provide backup for La Familia.
He won his ECW in-ring debut by defeating ECW Champion Kane in a handicap match teaming with Guerrero. He had his first singles match on the June 20 edition of SmackDown in a losing effort against Matt Hardy.
On the August 8 edition of SmackDown!, Neely along with the rest of La Familia were all betrayed by Edge, and on the August 12 edition of ECW, Neely lost to Evan Bourne, with whom Guerrero and Neely had begun a minor feud.
On the October 24 edition of Smackdown! during a non-title tag team match against the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions Primo Colon and Carlito, Guerrero and Neely had some miscommunication which resulted in Guerrero slapping Neely and Neely throwing (and missing) a punch at Guerrero which distracted Neely long enough for Carlito to hit the Backstabber for the victory.
