Swagger responded by hitting The Ballin’ Superstar with a microphone, paving the way for a brutal attack and a match between the two Superstars. As “The All-American American” was attempting to apply his treacherous ankle lock and end things on a painful note, The Franchise Playa countered, allowing him to pick up the quick pinfall.
Drew McIntyre def. Matt Hardy (PHOTOS | WATCH) After attempting to end Matt Hardy’s career in recent months, Drew McIntyre looked to finish the job.

Rhodes then closed the door on Christian with the Cross Rhodes.
World Heavyweight Champion Kane def. Kofi Kingston (PHOTOS | WATCH) Just 48 hours before SummerSlam, the determination of Kofi Kinston collided with the uncontrollable rage of Kane.

He then turned out the lights on his prey with the tombstone.
After the bell, Kane promised to deliver vengeance onto Mysterio at SummerSlam. The Master of the 619 emerged to reaffirm his claim that Kane actually attacked The Undertaker, vowing to reclaim the World Title in two days.

TV Champion AJ Styles vs Kurt Angle
For the record, this is non-title. These guys have had some awesome, awesome matches in the past, I can’t wait to see what they do here.

AJ rams Angle into the apron as we see his new tattoo, but Angle catches him with an overhead belly to belly suplex out of nowhere and tosses AJ back in.

AJ tries another springboard from the apron but Angle shakes the top rope and AJ crashes down. Angle tries to suplex him back in but AJ escapes and hits the moonsault/deathdrop for 2.

Knockouts Title Match: Madison Rayne vs Angelina Love
Angelina goes after Madison but Madison hides behind the ref and cheapshots Angelina. Angelina weathers the storm and fires back, but Madison sends Angelina into the corner, blocks the foot on a charge, and just slams Angelina on the back of her head, then climbs on top of her and starts ramming the back of her head into the mat, then hits a swinging neckbreaker, straddles Angelina’s shoulders, and repeatedly humps Angelina’s head into the mat and covers for 2. Madison stops to argue with the ref about the count, then turns around into a jawbreaker from Angelina, who follows that with a series of clotheslines and then a flying variety of the clothesline. Angelina with a bicycle kick as Dumpy Ass comes down to ringside on the bike and makes her way to ringside as the crowd starts chanting “Tara” at her. The ref goes over to tell Dumpy Ass to take a hike when Velvet Sky comes running out and cracks her from behind with a chair, then pulls off the motorcycle helmet to reveal…a mask underneath. The Dark Patriot angle! Dumpy Ass hightails it as Madison nails Angelina from behind with the belt and covers for 2, then Angelina comes back with a clothesline and covers Madison for the three count and the Knockouts Title.

After another commercial break, we come back for the three way match…
Ken Anderson vs Matt Morgan vs The Pope
Anderson does his usual entrance while Morgan and Pope are already in the ring. Anderson and Pope go right after Morgan and double team him, ramming him into the corner and taking turns beating him up. They wrap Morgan’s leg around the rope and attack it, and then Pope hits an STO and covers, Anderson breaks and tries his own cover, and then Pope pulls him off and tries again, and this goes on about five more times unitl Pope and Anderson have an uncomfortable staredown. Morgan breaks up the lovefest with a double goozle followed by a double clothesline that takes both men down. Morgan charges at Pope with a boot, but Pope moves and Morgan crotches himself. Pope accidentally elbows Anderson in the face as he goes to nail Morgan, but then nails Morgan anyway and sends him to the floor as Anderson kneels in the ring clutching his jaw. Pope goes to check on him and Anderson pops up and slugs him in the mouth, and they exchange blows until Anderson hits a Thesz Press and elbowdrop for 2. Anderson goes for a fireman’s carry but Pope escapes and uppercuts him, then goes for the lungblower but Anderson escapes and hits a Flatliner and goes for a cover, but Morgan breaks it up and kicks Anderson for the floor, then capitalizes and covers Pope for the three count.
Winner: Matt Morgan
Still to come: Hulk Hogan has a special surprise, and Jeff Hardy has an open challenge, which will be answered next!
Jeff Hardy Open Challenge
And the mystery opponent is…Shannon Moore. Hardy looks shocked, and Moore takes a mic and says that tonight is a perfect opportunity to prove he can stand at the same level as Hardy, and no matter what happens here tonight, they’re leaving as brothers. Hardy looks unimpressed, and I can’t say I blame him. They shake hands and then tie up and Hardy shoves him off. Moore goes to a wristlock, Hardy reverses to one of his own and Moore cartwheels out and reverses to a side headlock. Hardy sends Moore off into the ropes and Moore takes him down with a shoulderblock and then they exchange armdrags and do the indy standoff. Another tieup and Moore takes Hardy to the corner and rams a series of shoulders into Hardy’s midsection and then whips him across the ring, but Hardy leapfrogs over him and hits a reverse enziguiri. Moore goes to the corner and Hardy keeps trying to catch him with wild moves but Moore outruns him and Hardy misses something and sails out to the floor. Moore follows him out with a dive, then tosses Hardy back in the ring and catches him with a moonsault off the top for 2. Moore with a snap suplex for 2 and we HIT THE CHINLOCK!

Best Of Five Series Match Five – 2 Out Of 3 Falls: Motor City Machine Guns vs Beer Money
Storm and Sabin start and Storm goes right to the eyes and gets a wristlock, Sabin tries to escape but Roode turns it into a headlock, then they do a fast paced sequence off the ropes and then a series of pinfall attempts and then each go for a kick at the same time and catch each other’s boot…and slowly put them down and back off. The fans pop huge as Shelley and Roode tag in and the crowd starts chanting for Shelley. Roode takes Shelley to the corner and takes a cheapshot, but Shelley fires back and gets thumbed in the eyes. Shelley off the ropes and Roode tries a drop down, but Shelley elbowdrops him and then hits a flying headscissors, then unloads with a chop. Shelley comes off the ropes and Roode gets a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker for 2, then goes for an O’Connor Roll, but Shelley tags as he hits the ropes and Sabin comes in and kicks him in the face, Storm tries to come in but the MCMGs hit a fast series of double team moves that sends Storm to the floor and puts Roode down for 2. Roode recovers and tags out to Storm, who doesn’t have much luck either until Roode grabs Sabin’s ankle from the floor and allows Storm to hit a running boot to the head. Roode comes in without making a legal tag, and the ref calls him on it, but then Roode tags out to Storm. Whatever. Storm fires away on Sabin in the corner and tags back out to Roode and they hit a slam/elbowdrop/kneedrop combo for 2. Sabin starts to fight back and leapfrogs a whip into the corner then tries to make the tag, Roode grabs his ankle and tries to pull him back, but Sabin hits an enziguiri and makes the hot tag. Shelley gives Roode a Flatliner into the second turnbuckle and then bulldogs Roode as he clotheslines Storm and covers Roode for 2. Shelley with a Flatliner/DDT combo on Beer Money and covers Roode for 2. MCMGs fire Storm to the apron and Shelley comes over the top with a double stomp, then hits a springboard dropkick to send Roode to the floor and they hit stereo dives onto Beer Money. This is way more difficult to recap than you have any idea. Storm recovers and DDTs Sabin on the apron as Shelley goes up top, Roode tries to stop him but gets knocked off into the middle of the ring. Roode dodgs the double stomp and Beer Money hits a gutbuster/lungblower/DWI combo and Beer Money takes the first fall.
The second fall begins immediately and Roode starts putting the boots to Shelley and covers for 1. Tag out to Storm, who comes in and nails Shelley in the jaw with a right. Beer Money with a double suplex on Shelley and then stop to play to the crowd, but while they were wasting time Shelley made the hot tag to Sabin, who comes in with a double dropkick off the top rope. They send Storm to the floor and give Roode the double stomp/neckbreaker combo to even it up at one fall apiece.
And the third fall begins right away. Sabin goes for a punt to Roode’s head on the floor, but Roode catches the foot and yanks Sabin to the floor, then pops back in the ring and backdrops his partner onto Sabin. Shelley comes through the ropes with a sick dive, and then Roode follows that with a dive of his own and all four men are down on the floor and…wait, commercial break? Now? WHY????
After a well placed commercial for the MCMG-Beer Money double DVD, we come back to the third fall as Roode takes Sabin’s head off with a clothesline. Shelley tries to fight back, but gets popped up into a spinning uranage for 2. Roode puts the boots to Shelley in the corner and tags in Storm, and they whip Shelley across the ring and then follow him in with a pair of running clotheslines. Storm puts Shelley up top and goes for a top rope superplex, but Shelley knocks him down into the Tree Of Woe and hits the top rope double stomp. The referee starts the double count and both men tag out, and Sabin comes in with a series of running forearms to Roode, then hits a Frankensteiner out of the corner and then dropkicks Storm off the apron. Sabin with a springboard tornado DDT for 2, then Roode goes to the eyes and tags out to Storm. Beer money go for a double team but Sabin fights his way out and kicks off of Storm and then Shelley comes in and they hit a snap Carnageplex for a very close 2. MCMGs with a series of superkicks and an enziguiri to Storm, but Roode comes in and wipes out Shelley and they hit a double DDT on Sabin, then counter Shelley’s Sliced Bread #2 into a double team chinbreaker. Shelley rolls to the floor and Beer Money goes for the DWI, but Sabin escapes and Storm accidentally superkicks Roode, and the MCMGs hit the double stomp/neckbreaker combo again…and Storm kicks out! They go for it again…and this time it’s a neckbreaker/top rope splash combo, and Shelley blocks Roode as Sabin covers Storm and finally that’s enough to get the MCMGs the win. What a match!
Winners: Motor City Machine Guns
I’ll say it right now, this is TNA Match Of The Year so far. Just unbelievable.
Still to come: Hulk Hogan’s big announcement, and up next: Rob Van Dam defends the TNA World Title against Abyss in a Stairway To Janice Match!
Stairway To Janice Match for the TNA World Title: Rob Van Dam vs Abyss
And in case you weren’t already aware, Eric Bischoff is the special referee for this match. Janice is hanging above the ring, and Abyss grabs the ladder and slides it into the ring as he makes his entrance and tries to climb up and grab Janice before RVD makes his entrance, so RVD comes running out and springboards off the top rope and kicks the ladder out from under Abyss. He climbs up and does a ten punch count in the corner, then hits a spinkick to wipe Abyss out. He folds up the ladder and rams it into the midsection of Abyss, then does it a second time. RVD with another spinkick and then he bulldogs Abyss onto the ladder and follows that up with Rolling Thunder, but Abyss moves and RVD crashes down onto the ladder. Oh, and wouldn’t you know it, we have to take another commercial break as Abyss grabs the ladder from the floor and RVD baseball slides it into his chest.
We’re back and Abyss has a ladder balanced between the ring apron and guardrail, and he and RVD are battling on the apron. Abyss goozles RVD, but RVD fights his way out and kicks him in the face, so Abyss clotheslines him over the top back into the ring. Abyss follows him in and grabs a second ladder, which he now rams into RVD’s midsection as RVD did to him earlier on, then does it a second time. Abyss balances the ladder in front of RVD in the corner and goes for a charge, but RVD tosses the ladder into Abyss’ face as he comes running in, then rams the ladder into Abyss in the corner and sets it up as a ramp, running up it to kick Abyss in the face, and then puts Abyss on top of the ladder and moonsaults onto him. RVD sets up the ladder in the corner and goes for a monkey flip on Abyss, but you knew that wasn’t going to work, and Abyss powerbombs him out of the corner. Abyss sets up the ladder in the middle of the ring and tries to climb, but takes too long and RVD climbs up the other side and they go toe to toe on the top of the ladder. Abyss goozles RVD and chokeslams him off the ladder, but loses his balance and he tumbles to the mat as well. Abyss closes the ladder again and goes to the floor, and we get replays while Abyss takes a moment to pull a bag out from under the ring, and tonight it contains…wait for it…thumbtacks! OOOOH, and it has glass in it, too! Abyss puts RVD up top and goes for a superplex, but RVD sunset flips off the top and Abyss goes crashing down ass-first on the goodies. Looks like RVD might have gotten slightly stuck, too. RVD comes off the ropes but runs right into a boot from Abyss, who goes back under the ring, and behind door #2 is…a barbed wire board! he slides that into the ring and sets it up in the corner and tries to whip RVD into it, but RVD puts on the breaks, so Abyss charges him, RVD moves, and Abyss goes running facefirst into the board. Abyss sticks to it, so RVD comes off the top and jumpkicks the board into the face of Abyss, who goes down with the board on top of him. RVD, ever the innovator, comes off the ropes and hits Rolling Thunder onto the board on top of Abyss. Yeargh. RVD sets up the ladder and goes up, but Abyss tips the ladder over, causing RVD to fall down, catch himself on the top rope, and then crash facefirst into the ladder. That looked really, really nasty. Abyss sets up the ladder and goes up…and he gets Janice. We see Dixie Carter and Terry Taylor standing in the crowd looking very concerned. Abyss shoves the ladder out of the way and goes to the floor and tosses RVD back in…right into the glass and thumbtacks. What a sadist. Abyss pounds him down in the corner and grabs Janice, and he does the YOU at RVD and swings at him, but RVD moves and Abyss sticks Janice in the top turnbuckle. While Abyss is busy trying to free her, RVD goes to the floor and grabs a chair, which he uses to massage the back of Abyss, and then tosses it to Abyss and hits the Van Daminator. Abyss is down in the corner, so he puts the barbed wire board on top of him, grabs a chair, and hits a coast to coast Van Terminator with a chair, into the board, into Abyss, and Dixie Carter is standing ringside applauding! She’s not supposed to do that! RVD goes up top and hits the Five Star Notebook Splash and covers for the hard fought win.
Winner: Rob Van Dam
Ye gads, that was really brutal and really awesome all at the same time. Bischoff played no part whatsoever and was completely unnecessary to this match. RVD sets up the ladder in the middle of the ring and climbs up to celebrate and hold up the title to the crowd. Oh wait, Hulk Hogan’s music hits and here he comes to deliver his surprise…after this commercial break!
Okay, we’re back and Hogan is in the ring with RVD, and he says that everyone knows there’s a reason RVD is the leader of TNA, and says he’s never seen a champion like RVD, and he’s going to take the company all the way to the top. When he saw RVD take on Sabu, who Hogan considers the most dangerous man in the business, it made Hogan realize he has all the bases covered, and that’s why TNA is the #1 company in the wrestling business today. He says Hardcore Justice made TNA raise the bar, and he has to thank Dixie Carter for taking him somewhere he’s never been before. When he saw RVD in the ring with all the great athletes of EV2.0 and they taught him what hardcore was all about, his level of respect went to the top for RVD and his band of gypsies. Okay. With all that being said, Dixie Carter invited all of EV2.0 here to watch RVD’s match, and right now, Hogan would like to invite them all out to the ring. They come out led by a suit-clad Tommy Dreamer, along with Stevie Richards, Team 3D, Sabu and Fonzie, the FBI, Mick Foley, and Rhino. Hogan said that when he came to TNA, he was looking for that higher ground where even Hogan has never been before, and he says that Tommy Dreamer and his band of misfits brought TNA there, and he’s going to bow down and give them his ring, and he hands the mic to Dreamer and leaves. Dreamer says that they raised the bar on Sunday, and tonight, the MCMGs, Beer Money, RVD and Abyss showed that the bar was raised even more. Dreamer said that to keep the ball rolling, he’d like to thank Dixie Carter again, and to his friends in EV2.0, it was an honor to do it one last time and thanks them for the show they put on, and for Sunday night at Hardcore Justice, Dreamer wants to thank the fans. RVD kisses him on the cheek for added effect…but wait, the lights go out and when they come back up…Foley’s down in the ring and Fortune and Matt Morgan lay out the ECW guys! Raven runs out to try and help, but James Storm cracks him in the head with a beer bottle. The Sandman comes out of the crowd and stops to play to the fans, and AJ Styles attacks him from behind as Storm gouges Raven’s head open with a shard from the bottle. Abyss comes back out and drags RVD to the floor and tosses him into the crowd. Ric Flair comes strolling out of the back with a big smile on his face as we go backstage to a shot of Abyss, blood-covered Janice in hand, stands over Rob Van Dam, who is COVERED with blood. Flair goes over to Dixie in the crowd and yells that she brought this on herself and tries to go after he. We see shots of blood covered ECW originals as we go off the air.
Carlito comments on his firing, WWE being PG, more Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 08/14/2010 at 01:00 PM
The following messages were posted on the Twitter page of Carlito @carlitocolon...
WWE being PG:
"I'm wondering as fans, were any of u disappointed when the divas came out in those granny suits? I get the whole going PG thing, but WTF? Since when is a bikini not PG? Oh, and BTW all u girls looked gr8 in the granny suits...just sayin!My point is, u wanna go PG fine. But that doesn't mean wrestling has 2 be lame and cookie cutter! Make it fun again! PG from a business standpoint is actually smart. Vince is not stupid! I'm just sayin that they go a lil overboard with it at times. Sure they might b losing fans, but by being PG the big corporations are less afraid of sponsoring them, and they bring in the big $!Plus, the kids are more likely to buy the toys and merch...and we all know, if mommy approves, its all good!"
Being told Vince was stupid to let him go:
"no, vince was right 2 let me go...and I was very happy 2 go!"
Who came up with the "painting a hole in the wall" skit with Hornswoggle:
"lol, that's was more of a punishment bc I had asked 2 quit at that point."
Bryan Danielson's firing:
"I can't really speak on that bc I don't know. It seems to me that something shady happened there. He seemed like a good kid 2 me"
Going back to WWE:
"I'd go back anytime...but if they're not gonna use me right, I refuse to go back!"
WWE not pushing talented wrestlers, and pushing Sheamus instead:
"I agree...but I have 2 disagree with u about sheamus. At 1st I wasn't 2 fond of him, but I believe he's stepped up his game! His fans and his character over the last couple of years:
"I appreciate all the love people! I can't believe I still have fans! Let's face it my character was pretty lame for the past couple of years. Thanks 4 sticking by me! It really broke my heart having 2 walk through that curtain knowing the crap I had 2 go out there and do!" "Lol, I'm not down on myself! I'm just calling it like I saw it. For the past 2 or 3 years Carlito was lame!"
Bashing WWE and being disrespectful to creative with his last comments: "I haven't bashed the WWE, I'm thankful 4 a lot that they gave me! I'm just giving my opinion. If u don't c that, ur an idiot! that's the way I felt. In my understanding, that's an opinion. I guess I'm stupid!"
WWE firing him: "hey, its totally my fault I got fired! When u walk around with an I don't give a f*** attitude, its bound to happen!
Future plans: "I don't know what my plans are yet. I'm gonna b doing different things, just want 2 have fun again! I'm in no hurry, Carlito saved his $!
WWE Signs College Football Player to Contract Posted by Steve Carrier on 08/14/2010 at 11:29 AM
- Tampa Bay Online reports that WWE has signed Andrew Leavine to a developmental deal and he will report to FCW next month.
Leavine, who is 6-foot-5 and 292 pounds, spent the past four years playing football on the offensive line at Florida International University. After graduating with a degree in parks and recreation, Leavine was briefly signed to the NFL's Miami Dolphins with a few other undrafted rookies.
He also did amateur wrestling in high school and finished his senior year with a record of 33-4 and 23 pins. While in college, Leavine trained some in jiu-jitsu and other forms of MMA. He had the following to say about those skills and stepping into the world of pro wrestling:
"It helps tremendously. But at the same time, I'm walking into a whole different animal here. It's going to be a process of watching film, watching guys in front of me, like Husky Harris. It helps to watch those guys and see what I have to do to get to the next level."

Michelle McCool def. Kelly Kelly (PHOTOS | WATCH) Accompanied by NXT season two Rookie, Kaval, and her “bestie,” Layla, the self-professed co-Women’s Champion Michelle McCool arrogantly strutted to the ring to take on the always spunky Kelly Kelly. But while she is usually the assailant, the Team Lay-Cool beauty found herself on the receiving end of a vicious attack from Kelly tonight. Pounding Michelle’s perfect face into the mat, the perky blonde showed off an aggressive side the WWE Universe has rarely seen. Kelly’s rage may have gotten the best of her, however, as McCool was able to reverse an attempted victory roll and nail a brutal Faith Breaker to claim the win.
Chavo Guerrero def. Chris Masters (PHOTOS | WATCH) After picking up a few recent victories on “WWE Superstars,” Chavo Guerrero hit a snag last Thursday night when he lost to MVP. So the self-proclaimed “Mexican Warrior” was looking to get back on the winning track when he stepped into the ring with Chris Masters tonight. Of course, defeating a 275-pound powerhouse is easier said than done and Chavo realized this earlier as he was dominated by The Masterpiece’s pure power. In the end, however, Guerrero’s craftiness would win out as he targeted Masters’ injured ribs before nailing a huge Frog Splash to score another victory.
Jimmy & Jey Uso def. Goldust & Yoshi Tatsu (PHOTOS | WATCH) Although they were unsuccessful in their many attempts to dethrone Unified Tag Team Champions The Hart Dynasty, the Usos have begun to regroup and regain steam with a series of impressive wins. Tonight, they continued to move back up the tag ranks with a big victory over the unique pairing of Goldust & Yoshi Tatsu. With some help from WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka’s daughter, Tamina, Jimmy & Jey were able to fend off Goldust’s veteran smarts and Tatsu’s explosive strikes to nail a big splash from the top rope for the 1-2-3.
The following is an article from celebrity gossip website TMZ.com:
WWE Star -- Victim in Lady Gaga Concert Scam
WWE star JTG -- formerly of the tag team Cryme Tyme -- claims some deadbeat sold him fake tickets to a Lady Gaga concert recently ... and now the perp is in for a "Brooklyn-style beatdown."
JTG -- a self-professed Gaga fanatic -- tells TMZ, he went on Craigslist.com and successfully tracked down and purchased two $125 tickets to Lady G's sold out Wednesday night show in L.A. But when he showed up to the Staples Center, the ticket lady refused to accept them ... because they were fake.
Now JTG is on the rampage, desperately trying to track down the scumbag who swindled him -- but first, he wants to make sure the bad guy gets the respect he deserves.
The wrestler tells TMZ, "Game recognize game, so I gotta respect his hustle. But when I catch him, I hope he can respect my Brooklyn-style beatdown."
JTG says he's been power dialing the Craigslist con artist ever since ... but it keeps going straight to voicemail.

PWInsider.com is reporting that WWE Diva Tiffany (Taryn Terrell) has been suspended by WWE.
According to people within the company, there was a domestic incident earlier this week between her and husband Drew McIntyre at the hotel where WWE talent were staying in San Jose, CA. It got bad enough that police ended up being called. It's unknown at this point if Terrell was arrested.
WWE has yet to make a public announcement about the incident.
Daniels says he is not posting on Hogan's account Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 08/12/2010 at 07:03 PM
After the fake Hulk Hogan Twitter account came out and stated that he was former TNA star Christopher Daniels, Daniels himself took to his Twitter account to announced the following:
“Just so everyone knows, I am NOT posting as @realHulkHogan or @TNAnonymous ! To whoever is, I don’t appreciate you using my name to troll! You’re welcome to post your opinions, but either own up to them or keep your mouth shut! You’re not doing anyone any favors, especially me!”

Hogan Twitter hacked again - claims to be Daniels Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 08/12/2010 at 03:39 PM
The Hulk Hogan Twitter story has taken yet another strange turn. On Wednesday night, a post was made stating that TNA had taken control back of the account. This afternoon, however, the following was posted on the account:
"I have fallen into the angels to where I now wrestle in the Ring of Honor. I am the Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels. @EBischoff Hey Eric Bitchoff, it's Daniels, the one you fired! Now who was mind f***ed... way to stay accurate in the "media" @EBischoff I saw your nice little interview with SLAM! Wrestling. You covered it up saying it was that shit's @BTLSRadio's fault. @EBischoff So what, you're going to jump off a bridge if that shit @BTLSRadio does first? BRILLIANT! I'm UNBREAKABLE!!"
Now while it appears the account was hacked again, did TNA ever really gain back control of the account to begin with?

Breaking news: Lance Cade dead at 29 Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 08/13/2010 at 12:15 PM
PWInsider.com is reporting that former WWE Superstar Lance McNaught (Lance Cade) has died at the age of 29. No details are known at this time.
McNaught was trained by Shawn Michaels and got his biggest WWE push in 2008 but suddenly ended up being released. Jim Ross later stated that "he made a major league mistake while utilizing bad judgment" and that it was instrumental to his departure. Ross referenced McNaught having a seizure on a plane and needing emergency medical care as a part of this.
McNaught was rehired by WWE in 2009, but was released again on April 2nd, 2010 without appearing on television.
- Jim Ross has been pushing WWE to scout talents from Ring of Honor because developmental needs a fresh supply of new talents. WWE has been more aggressive in signing new talents than they were in recent years.
Bischoff speaks out on the Hogan/Twitter incident Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 08/12/2010 at 12:03 PM
In an interview with SLAM! Wrestling, Eric Bischoff explained his side of what happened on Wednesday with the "official" Twitter account of Hulk Hogan. Bischoff said that him and Hogan had talked to Bubba The Love Sponge about having BTLS's people help out with setting up the Twitter account and website.
On Wednesday morning, BTLS posted the link to Hogan's Twitter account and Bischoff, assuming it was legit, linked it as well. Bischoff said he hasn't talked to BTLS about why the account wasn't verified and wished he had spoken to Hogan first.
“It is probably a 16-year-old dweeb that doesn’t have anything better to do,” Bischoff said about who could be behind the fake account. “I am 99% sure that there is no validity behind it and the person does not work for TNA.”

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Like a runaway sailboat careening toward SummerSlam, Team WWE fought and flailed as if in the eye of the storm. With just six days left, however, will the crew finally right themselves in time, or are they destined to crash against the rock solid unity of The Nexus?
John Cena & Bret Hart vs. Edge & Chris Jericho ended in a No Contest (PHOTOS | WATCH | SEVEN DEADLY SINNERS) Marvels never cease. In a match that pitted snarling enemies, John Cena & Bret Hart faced down Edge & Chris Jericho in a battle of current Team WWE members against two Superstars who had left the squad high and dry. To dial up the tension, members of The Nexus were stationed outside the ring acting as "lumberjerks."
During the bout, The Nexus simply couldn’t help themselves. The seven deadly sinners climbed into the ring to confront Cena and “Hit Man.” Confident they had the two where they wanted them, the numbers game tightened when John Morrison and R-Truth shot in to help their fellow Team WWE members. Then the seven deadly sinners appeared shocked when Edge & Jericho eventually turned to help their former opponents. In the end, The Nexus and Team WWE exchanged blows in a slice of what can be expected this Sunday at SummerSlam.
Justin Long will host next week’s Raw In the wake of the season’s biggest bash, SummerSlam, Justin Long will roll into Los Angeles to act as special guest host of Raw. As the star of the comedy feature film Going the Distance, the actor promises to bring some must-see action to Monday night.

Husky Harris, Michael McGillicutty & Alex Riley def. Kaval, Percy Watson & Lucky Cannon; WWE Champion Sheamus attacked Kaval (PHOTOS | WATCH | VOTE NOW IN THE NXT POLL) As the second season of WWE NXT rockets skyward, six NXT Rookies brought their talents to Monday night. Husky Harris, Michael McGillicutty & Alex Riley faced down Kaval, Percy Watson & Lucky Cannon. In the end, it was the burly Harris who snuffed out the agile Kaval to win for his team. It was the third win in a row over Kaval for the "Army tank with the Ferrari engine."
Afterward, a still fuming WWE Champion Sheamus, who had been stewing ringside after his encounter with Randy Orton, charged the ring and further punished Kaval before barking out his frustration to the WWE Universe.
WWE Champion Sheamus scuffled with Randy Orton (PHOTOS | WATCH) In six days, the question will be answered. For now, though, the WWE Universe is wondering: Who will hold the WWE Title after SummerSlam? The latest evidence to ponder came when current champion Sheamus called out his SummerSlam opponent Randy Orton. As the two fierce competitors jawed back and forth, the anonymous Raw General Manager intervened via email. Through his spokesman, announcer Michael Cole, the GM stipulated that were any Superstar to interfere in the match, they would be suspended indefinitely. The GM also encouraged the Irishman to retaliate against The Viper’s claim that he’s scared of him.
A melee ensued between the two, and when the dust had settled, it was Orton who had bested his rival. Although The Viper could have punted Sheamus in the skull, he uncharacteristically stopped short and instead, he actually handed the WWE Championship to the dazed Irishman.
Mark Henry vs. Ted DiBiase ended in a No Contest (PHOTOS | WATCH) The Nexus persist in brutalizing any Superstar even considering joining Team WWE. The carnage continued with Mark Henry. In the locker room area, The World’s Strongest Man asked Team WWE members John Morrison and R-Truth to consider his bout against Ted DiBiase his audition to join their SummerSlam squad. Once The Nexus got wind of Henry’s hopes, they quickly dashed them by attacking before the match, leaving Henry battered and immobile.
Melina def. Divas Champion Alicia Fox in a Non-title Match, Divas Title Match arranged for SummerSlam (PHOTOS | WATCH) Ring rust? What ring rust? Last week, Melina sent a message to Divas Champion Alicia Fox that she is back and intensely focused on regaining the Butterfly Championship that she had to relinquish due to injury several months ago. This week, Melina’s message got a whole lot louder. Not only did the homecoming queen defeat Alicia in a non-title bout, but the anonymous Raw General Manager arranged a Divas Title Match between the two at SummerSlam.
United States Champion The Miz def. Evan Bourne (PHOTOS | WATCH) It had been a rough couple of weeks for United States Champion The Miz. Despite capturing the Money in the Bank contract, The Cleveland Screamer found himself stymied during his attempts to cash in. This week, he gained a head of momentum after facing Evan Bourne in a non-title match. Although the high-flyer has been soaring lately, the U.S. Champ clipped his opponent's wings for the victory.
Chris Jericho and Edge attacked Bret Hart; The Nexus attacked The Hart Dynasty (PHOTOS) Oh, Canada! With just six days until SummerSlam, Bret Hart took a break from training in Calgary to address the further deterioration of Team WWE. The legendary Canadian appeared ready to convince his fellow countrymen, Edge and Chris Jericho, to rejoin the group.
First out, the arrogant Jericho proved as condescending and stubborn as ever, rebuffing the advice of the WWE Hall of Famer. Next up, The Ultimate Opportunist praised “Hit Man” before turning on him and attacking. Hart countered and sent Edge to the mat, at which point, Jericho jammed a thumb in Hart’s eye. The attack came as Edge & Jericho prepare to face The Excellence of Execution & John Cena in a tag team match later in the evening.
As the two scoundrels retreated, Hart’s niece, Natalya, hurried to the ring. She breathlessly informed her uncle that The Nexus had just ambushed The Hart Dynasty – seemingly in an effort to prevent them as replacements on Team WWE.
Yet more from the "Hulk Hogan" Twitter account Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 08/11/2010 at 03:41 PM
Here are the latest posts from the @realHulk_Hogan account on Twitter which, as mentioned before, was confirmed as a legit account by Eric Bischoff. In fact, both Kevin Nash and Jeff Jarrett are following the Hogan account.
"Sorry guys, not revealing myself because at the end of the day, I need to put food on my family's table and getting fired won't help that. But if I can use this big work as venue to provide TRUE honest opinions of the TNA biz today, then great, because we have no other way. AJ spoke out for us a little while ago and got ridiculed. Had it been anyone else, they would either be suspended or fired. So I took it upon myself to use the "biggest name" to get our voices heard. It may seem like a pussy move, but try being in our positions. We got no choice but to use the Internet to our advantage here. And it's our hope that sites like PWInsider.com will publish our message. Because @TNADixie reads PWInsider.com, but it's not like she listens to them very much. And we love Tommy Dreamer, but how does he come first before us? How do all these ECW guys, who had their chance in 1995, come before us? No disrespect to the ECW guys either. Just saying. @TNADixie got worked herself when she believed in @EBischoff and Hogan by firing Christopher Daniels and bringing in Venis Jordan,NastyBoys. And all the rest of the Hogan contingent. Where is Daniels now? Where is Samoa Joe? Where is Amazing Red? Where is Kendrick? Where is Scotty Steiner, who could still WORK for his age. We loved Scotty. We don't need Hall or Waltman who use TNA in reminisce old times. f***in use Desmond Wolfe, use Homicide, use Hernandez, use Awesome Kong, us the people that brought you to the dance @TNADixie. And use me the way I've been suggesting. You always assure me that things will go in the right direction, but then forget about it. Then there's @EBischoff who runs his mouth saying he talks to talent when he's never spoken to me about the product once. And I'm sorry, I love Vince Russo, but his time as a writer was long gone after he left the WWF. Demote him to ring crew staff, honestly. Russo will have more fun watching us stretch and practice in the ring before the shows instead of writing our work. That's it for now. Send the message to @TNADixie. Out to the beach now."
More from the "Hulk Hogan" Twitter account Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 08/11/2010 at 03:23 PM
Dixie Carter posted the following on her Twitter page:
"Recent twitter of Hulk Hogan leaving TNA is bogus. To what extreme people will go."
The "Hulk Hogan" account then posted the following:
"@TNADixie Yes it's bogus, but @EBischoff himself is bogus. I work for you Dixie and respect you so much, but you've fallen off the wagon. @TNADixie You need to wake up and realize who your true TNA troops are. I don't see Hogan or @EBischoff breaking a sweat. @TNADixie I've bled for TNA, I've sacrificed for TNA, and I've put my family on the line for TNA... for what? To be pushed aside? It's BS @TNADixie And you know it deep down. If things don't change, a couple of us are quitting. @TNADixie I speak for a whole crop of men and women in the back. We're not happy."
So is TNA working a storyline on Twitter now? We'll just have to wait and se...
"Hulk Hogan" on Twitter says he works for TNA Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 08/11/2010 at 03:12 PM
The latest twist in the Hulk Hogan/Twitter story is that the person who made the account is actually a TNA employee. Here is what was posted:
"This one was for the INTERNET WRESTLING COMMUNITY! Beat us if you can, survive if we let you! How I got this to work: Well, here's the truth and honestly the truth, I work for TNA and am a current employee. TNA doesn't listen to any of us backstage. We're not allowed to step on anyones toes. So I thought this would be the best way to express my true thoughts. I hate Bischoff. I don't hate Hogan, but I don't see him helping TNA, he's just taking money. So let us do what we do best... And that's to provide true TOTAL NONSTOP ACTION WRESTLING. @TNADixie, this is a shoot brother. We want @EBischoff OUT! Hogan and Bischoff always play up how we're a happy family backstage. But that's far from it. We get paid shit. Some of us were paid better in 2006, no lies. Some of us got our eyes on a new wrestling company coming up in Florida and you know what, if it doesn't have @EBischoff's name, it's a draw"
Today Eric Bischoff announced that Hulk Hogan had an official Twitter account @realHulk_Hogan. Shortly after this announcement, the following message appeared on account:
"I know you've heard the rumors brothers and they are true. Eric and I are leaving TNA on a mutual basis. I just got out of meetings now. It was really fun but time to move on. TNA has new leadership coming in. Make sure you Hulkamaniacs still support them. TNA needs the power of Hulkamania to live on brothers."
Bischoff then posted a message saying that the Hogan account that Bischoff himself promoted is actually fake:
"The Hulk Hogan twitter posts are fake. Hulk IS in the process of setting up a page, but has not as yet. The rumors of us leaving TNA are bogus."
Was the account hacked? Is Bischoff screwing with fans? Who knows what is going on.
