After screaming “Dolph was mine first,” Guerrero viciously slapped Kaitlyn across the face, knocking her to the canvas. Still livid, Guerrero had to be kept at bay by the ref to prevent more chaos.

TNA iMPACT! Orlando, Florida (Impact Zone) November 04, 2010 Commentators: Mike Tenay & Taz Report by: Josh Boutwell of Wrestleview.com
Impact opens up with a recap of last week focusing on the Matt Morgan/Anderson/concussion issue.
In the back Bischoff is dressed in Karate gear while Flair is pumping him up and a referee is trailing behind them. Bischoff's music hits and he makes his way out to the ring (in complete Karate Gi with fight gloves and everything) alongside a referee and Ric Flair. Bischoff grabs a microphone and says he has some major business to take care of tonight but right now he wants to address Matt Morgan. Bischoff says that they talked to Hulk Hogan earlier today and they all agree that Matt Morgan is officially kicked out of Fortune and Immortal. Bischoff says Morgan needs to do himself a favor and stay away from the Impact Zone. He even pulls out the "future endeavors" line. Bischoff mocks Mr. Anderson's concussion and Flair says he's not tough enough to be a wrestler. Bischoff says he's going to give Anderson one more chance, if he wants the Title match against Hardy this Sunday he has to come out to the ring and pin Bischoff and then sign the contract. Bischoff says Anderson probably isn't even at the arena tonight but if he doesn't get his "skinny little white ass" out to the ring then he will never get a shot at Hardy. Bischoff says he's about to give Anderson a sample of what he's in for if he does decide to show up. Bischoff turns his attention to the referee who Bischoff says "prematurely" released Matt Morgan from the handcuffs last week and "put Jeff Jarrett's career in jeopardy". The referee defends himself saying he did everything right. Bischoff says that he just called him a liar and then Flair says he's also talking back to him. Bischoff hands Flair the microphone and then hits a Judo Throw on the referee and kicks him out of the ring. He fires the referee and they mock the fans.
Backstage Fortune is clowning on Morgan as well as Williams, who is trailing behind them.
Back from commercials Brian Kendrick is reading stuff from Mick Foley's book to EV2 when RVD walks in. RVD still thinks Raven is Bischoff's 'boy' but they continue to say he isn't. AJ Styles and Fortune walk in and RVD thinks EV2 set him up. AJ tells EV2 to go ahead and kill each other because nobody wants them in TNA anyway. He also says that at Turning Point one of them will be going home anyway and he gets in every member of EV2's face. Rhino gets heated and then AJ says he thinks they'll fire "boring Rhino" after Fortune wins at Turning Point. Rhino tries to Gore AJ but he moves and Rhino hits RVD! Fortune back out and Dreamer asks Rhino what the hell he's doing.
Clips of Hardy's attacks on RVD & Anderson are shown as well as Hardy talking trash about Anderson.
At the announce table Tenay & Taz are joined by telephone by Anderson. Anderson says he has the worst concussion of his life right now and he can't tell what's going to happen this point forward. He says his short term memory was gone after a couple of days and he's going to a clinic in Minnesota to be further evaluated. Anderson appreciates Matt Morgan stepping up for him but it's hard to know if Morgan can be trusted still.
In the back Angelina and Velvet talk about Velvet's match against Sarita tonight and how Velvet is going to kick her ass tonight. Velvet wants to prove something tonight so she wants Angelina to stay in the back and Angelina agrees. Velvet leaves and when Angelina turns around Winter is standing there and Angelina calls her a "creeper." Winter says she won't leave her and Angelina says she likes being alone and she's going to go be alone right now. Angelina leaves the room and tells Winter to leave her alone.
Clips of Sarita pinning Velvet last week are shown as Sarita makes her entrance. Velvet gets Sarita in a Full Nelson at the bell but Sarita counters into a Waistlock. Sarita goes for a slam but Velvet lands on her feet and then kicks Sarita into the ropes. Velvet attempts to whip Sarita into the ropes but Sarita reverses it only to eat a Hurricanrana from Velvet! Velvet follows up with an arm drag into an Armbar. Sarita fights to her feet and slams Velvet to the mat. Sarita chops Velvet in the corner and then goes for a clothesline but Velvet ducks it and hits a series of chops of her own. Velvet goes for a DDT but Sarita shoves her off and then kicks her to the mat. Sarita then rolls over Velvet and then grabs her by the hair but Velvet counters with a Jawbreaker. Velvet follows up with a Sliding Dropkick and then she goes for the DDT again but Sarita holds onto the ropes to block it. Velvet loses her temper and starts pounding the mat and ropes but eats a clothesline for her troubles. Sarita lifts Velvet up but Velvet shoves her into the corner and then goes for a clothesline but Sarita ducks it and shoves Velvet into the corner. Sarita beats Velvet down in the corner and then hits a Snapmare Takeover followed by a rollup for a nearfall.

Velvet hits Sarita with another Jawbreaker and then she goes for the DDT for a third time but Sarita blocks it and flings Velvet through the ropes to the floor. Velvet again shows frustration as she starts to climb back in the ring. Sarita kicks her as she got back into the ring and then hits the Tiger Bomb! 1...2...3!
Winner: Sarita via pinfall (Tiger Bomb)
In the back Bischoff is sparing with Jarrett and then Bischoff asks if Jarrett thinks he should apologize to Samoa Joe (sarcastically). Jarrett says he does have a few words for Joe that he's going to give him later.
Douglas Williams and Kaz argue about their former X-Division Title feud. Flair says when the Horsemen had an argument inside the group they went to the ring and handled it there so tonight they're going to do it "Horsemen style" as Kaz will face Williams one-on-one! Fortune walk away but Williams stays behind and approaches Christy Hemme. He has something to talk to her about.
Mixed Tag Team Match Generation Me & Tara vs. Ink, Inc. & Mickie James
Tara's shirt says "cougar" on it, oh my lord. I'd love for that cougar to bite me and lets just say those words look a tad bit better on her than they do on Vickie Guearrero. Some emo guys are sitting at ringside and Tenay says they're some rock band. Have I ever mentioned how hot Mickie James is? Jeremy and Neal will kick the match off.

Winners: Ink, Inc. & Mickie via pinfall (Mooregasm)
After the match Ink, Inc. & Mickie's celebration is short lived as Tara & GenMe attack them. The heels beat on the babyfaces and then they celebrate over the fallen good guys.
We cut to a scene of Orlando Jordan and Eric Young talking to some "specialist." He asks them how long they've been in a relationship. Young thinks they need to find a double team move and Jordan says something about wanting to "be on top." Young says some goofy stuff about being in the Scout troop and then talks about having a lot of partners in his career. Young says he "stretches" him out and keeps him loose, disturbing.
Jeff Jarrett is smugly smiling as he walks towards the entrance ramp.
They show a clip of 3D and Machine Guns having a face-to-face where they talk about their upcoming match. Lots of "mutual respect" type stuff here. Both teams put each other over during the segment Bubba jokes that if they want to the Guns can leave their kicks at home because he isn't looking forward to getting kicked in the face again. 3D says they're taking the belts from the Guns and they'll sleep with those belts afterward and The Guns say may the best in the world win.
Clips of the Jarrett/Joe stuff are shown.
Jeff Jarrett makes his way out to the ring. Jarrett says he's going to address Kurt Angle first tonight. He asks where Kurt gets off bashing out Bischoff's limo windows and he says he knew Kurt was weak but he had no idea he was THAT weak. Jarrett asks if it was Bischoff or Flair who tried to cripple him, he says it was him and his issues are with Jarrett not them. Jarrett says if Kurt has all this anger then he needs to go home so he can be all alone. Jarrett turns his attention to Samoa Joe and he says he has one word for Joe: I'm sorry (that's two words Jeff). Jarrett says if he had any idea that stage was as high as it was when he threw Joe off...then he would have thrown him off a hell of a lot higher! Jarrett says he'll give Joe an opportunity this Sunday to face him. Jarrett says he's been wanting to get something off his chest for a month. He says he doesn't want to hear "you sold out" chanted at him again and then Jarrett says he didn't sell out, he bought in. Jarrett drops the microphone and leaves the ring.

The Usos def. Mark Henry in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) On Monday’s Raw, Mark Henry revealed to special guest star Pee wee Herman that he felt lost since his tag team partner Evan Bourne was put on the shelf by CM Punk. The World’s Strongest Man was all on his own tonight as he took on both Jimmy & Jey Uso in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match. After being attacked by both Usos on last Thursday’s “WWE Superstars,” Henry was hoping to show the duo that he was powerful enough to take them both out. But the tag team specialist — and their manager, Tamina — proved to be too fast and cunning for the big man. Could this be the start of better things for the talented tag team?
Gail Kim def. Alicia Fox (WATCH | PHOTOS) With the recent unification of the Women’s and Divas Championships, the competitive spirit of the Divas division has seriously heated up. This aggressiveness was on full display in tonight’s bout between Gail Kim and Alicia Fox. Two women who have both held titles in WWE, each of them was hoping to score the victory in order to take a step closer to Michelle McCool’s Unified Divas Championship, but only one could come out on top. That victory went to Gail as she connected the Eat Defeat out of nowhere for the win.
Luke Gallows def. Vance Archer (WATCH | PHOTOS) After CM Punk disintegrating his Straight Edge Society many weeks ago, the WWE Universe was curious to find out what would happen to Luke Gallows. Those questions were answered tonight when the blue-collar big man locked up with the powerful Vance Archer for a serious heavyweight slugfest. Both standing 6-foot-8 with strength to spare, these bulls were very evenly matched, but it was Gallows’ intensity that won out in the end.
Jack Swagger def. Kaval (WATCH | PHOTOS) Since winning the second season of WWE NXT, Kaval has had some difficulty making an impact on SmackDown. The talented young competitor’s woes continued this week as he fell to Jack Swagger on Friday night and again tonight in this rematch. Using some stunning high-risk maneuver to throw The All-American American off his game, Kaval came very close to scoring his first win in WWE. But the rookie was ultimately blindsided by Swagger’s “Soaring Eagle,” allowing the former World Heavyweight Champion to apply the ankle lock for a tainted submission victory.
- Ezekiel Jackson reportedly suffered an injury during his bout with Zack Ryder at last night's RAW live event in Nice, France as he had difficulty walking after performing The Book of Ezekiel on the Long Island native.
Update on the medical condition of Scott Hall Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 11/04/2010 at 05:32 PM
Scott Hall is hospitalized after undergoing surgery to implant a pacemaker in his heart. Sid Vicious discussed Hall's health during an interview last night with www.ringsideradio.com:
"His condition is this, I think everybody knows a little about, he just received a little thing in his heart where it monitors his heart beat and if it gets too low it kicks his heart back in because of some of the medication he has been on and because of this heart deal he has been having a few seizures. That is why he has been in the hospital the last couple of days. One thing is he has told me and the people around him, I forgot how many hits he had for his birthday, those things right there. Those are the things that people like me and Scott, of all the things I cherish in this business are things like that…I know all the comments and all the great feedback he got for his birthday and about his condition has been good. I hope people keep that up."
The Rock likely out of Wrestlemania 27 plans Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 11/03/2010 at 12:44 PM
It looks like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will not be part of Wrestlemania 27 this year. Johnson has agreed to feature in a movie titled "Protection" where he will played a disgraced former American Special Forces operative who must rescue a judge’s kidnapped daughter from a Mexican cartel. The film will shoot from New Mexico in March meaning Johnson would be ruled out of most of the pre-PPV build up.
- The injury that CM Punk has sustained to his hips/buttocks seems to have occurred from a DDT he took from Edge at Bragging Rights. Unluckily for Punk, it looks like it was a total fluke of an injury. He took a normal bump, but was then in serious pain from that point forward.
Terry Taylor called Sabu and told him that he was being "let go" from TNA following Sunday's Turning Point PPV. Taylor said that creative had "nothing for him", therefore they are letting him go. Sabu is not happy with this at all. He says he will show up at the PPV, but is very unhappy about this situation.

Wade Barrett & David Otunga
LONG ISLAND, N.Y. – John Cena can probably kiss that employee-of-the-month award goodbye. Among supremely bad ideas, ticking off your boss is right up there with arm-wrestling an alligator, but the reluctant Nexus member did just that when he stuck to his principles and refused to play favorites for Nexus leader Wade Barrett.
WWE Champion Randy Orton & R-Truth def. Wade Barrett & David Otunga (WATCH | PHOTOS) True to his word, John Cena called it right down the middle. Acting as special guest referee, Cena promised not to play favorites while he officiated a match pitting WWE Champion Randy Orton & R-Truth against Wade Barrett & David Otunga.
Even though Cena did not compete in the bout, he nonetheless had a lot riding on the outcome. In three weeks, he will again act as special guest referee when the Englishman challenges The Viper in a title match at Survivor Series. This contest may have proven to be a preview of that life-altering bout.
Despite finding himself firmly under Barrett’s thumb, Cena refused to favor The Nexus once the bout commenced. Although, at one point, he appeared to lean toward his Nexus cohorts, Cena restrained himself and oversaw the bout as objectively as possible. The outcome, however, would leave his English overlord cold: R-Truth managed to topple Otunga and pin his shoulders for the win. The loss triggered a tirade from the Englishman directed squarely at Cena.
Although it was Barrett & Otunga who suffered the defeat, it may well be Cena who ends paying the price.
Mr. McMahon awoke from a coma in a dream (WATCH | PHOTOS) It had been months since a vicious attack at the hands of The Nexus left Mr. McMahon incapacitated. The Chairman, however, appeared to be alive – if not well – in a dream of his daughter Stephanie. Moments after awakening from the coma, McMahon appeared shocked enough to relapse. His medical handler informed him of the disarray within his beloved company: The Undertaker has been buried alive, John Cena joined The Nexus, Paul Bearer has returned, Goldust is getting married and Pee-wee Herman had taken over the show.
Natalya def. Self-professed “Co-Divas Champion” Michelle McCool in a Non-Title Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) The Mean Girls refuse to relent. Self-professed “Co-Divas Champions” Michelle McCool and Layla continue to taunt Natalya. This week, the pitiless pair dropped an ultimatum on the third-generation Diva: If she did not defeat McCool, she would not be given a title opportunity at Survivor Series. The challenge proved highly motivating for Natalya as she threw it into high gear to race past her blond adversary.
United States Champion Daniel Bryan def. Ted DiBiase (WATCH | PHOTOS) Ted DiBiase appears to be suffering from an acute case of “Gold Fever.” Ever since Goldust stole his Million Dollar Title, The “Fortunate Son” has been unable to focus on just about anything else. As a result, he continues to falter, losing his latest match to U.S. Champion Daniel Bryan.
After the bout, DiBiase complained to his special lady friend, Maryse, that he has been too distracted by the theft of his title. The cure? DiBiase told his “harm candy” that he’s determined to stop the wedding of Goldust and Aksana the following night on WWE NXT, only on WWE.com.
The Miz confronted Raw guest star Pee-wee Herman; “Big Pee-wee Herman” def. The Miz by Disqualification (WATCH: PART 1 | PART 2 | PHOTOS | SPECIAL OFFER ON PEE-WEE'S SHOW) Pee-wee Herman’s latest big adventure? The iconic comedian took time away from his current Broadway show to visit Raw. Unfortunately for him, The Miz didn’t appreciate sharing the spotlight. “The Cleveland Screamer” confronted Herman until the bow-tied entertainer suggested that Miz take on his cousin, “Big Pee-wee Herman” in a match. A dismissive Miz agreed, and out came “Big Pee-wee Herman,” who looked suspiciously like The World’s Largest Athlete, Big Show, clad in a Pee-wee outfit.
Despite attempting to weasel out of the match, Miz was forced to compete as mandated by the Raw GM. As “Big Pee-wee Herman” manhandled his foe, Miz’s assistant, Alex Riley, interfered. The distraction allowed Miz to nail his opponent with the Money in the Bank briefcase, causing a disqualification.
Ezekiel Jackson def. Zack Ryder (WATCH | PHOTOS) Call him a watered-down “Long Island Iced-Z.” Despite predicting a huge win during his return home, Long Island native Zack Ryder melted under the pressure. The empty boasts only fueled his opponent, Ezekiel Jackson. When the bell rang to kick start the match, the powerhouse quickly – and convincingly – crushed the uneasy Ryder.
Sheamus def. Vladimir Kozlov (WATCH | PHOTOS) After losing to Santino Marella last week, it didn’t take much for Sheamus to get his Irish up. The Celtic Warrior challenged the Italian again, but Santino instead subbed in his tag partner, Vladimir Kozlov. The Moscow Mauler put up a powerful defense, but Sheamus proved too overwhelming.
After his victory, the Irishman chased Santino up the entrance ramp. As he prepared to make borscht out of the “buffoon,” though, John Morrison interrupted and quashed The Celtic Warrior.
WWE Tag Team Champions Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater def. The Hart Dynasty (WATCH | PHOTOS) The Hart Dynasty continues to flatline. For yet another week, David Hart Smith & Tyson Kidd bickered their way to a loss. This time, the duo faced new WWE Tag Team Champions Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater in a non-title bout. The ascendant Nexus members capitalized when they spotted dissension between the Canadian cohorts.
WWE Champion Randy Orton called out John Cena; Raw main event set (PHOTOS) Fired or freedom? John Cena must choose. If Wade Barrett emerges from his Survivor Series match against Randy Orton as WWE Champion, Cena – acting as special guest referee – will be free from The Nexus. If the Englishman fails, however, the reluctant Nexus member will be terminated from WWE. Will Cena really betray his principles in order to emancipate himself?
Apparently, The Viper thinks he just might. He confronted Cena, who told him that, while titles come and go, his very way of life hangs in the balance and that he’s not entirely sure what he may do at Survivor Series in three weeks. Upon hearing Cena’s uncertainty, Barrett interrupted the pow-wow. Before the situation could erupt, Raw’s anonymous GM intervened, via Michael Cole, to arrange the night’s main event: A tag team match pitting Barrett and a partner of his choosing against Orton and a partner of his choosing with Cena acting as special guest referee.
Latest on Triple H's in-ring status with WWE Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 11/01/2010 at 04:25 PM

Though Triple H competed at WWE's Fan Appreciation Supershow in Hartford, Connecticut on Saturday, he has not fully recovered from biceps surgery. HHH's match with Alberto Del Rio was described as "safe" as it basically consisted of him hitting his trademark maneuvers on Del Rio. He wrestled in jeans and a t-shirt and was noticeably lighter. He was wearing the shirt because he can't train to a serious degree at this point.
Another injury update on CM Punk and his status Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 11/01/2010 at 12:42 PM
CM Punk isn't expected to be in 'wrestling action' for at least three months due to his hip issue, however WWE creative has been told to come up with non-wrestling storylines to integrate punk into RAW.
Surgery is scheduled for this week and as of writing, Punk is not expected to appear on this week's TV tapings.
In terms of the injury, the feeling is that Punk could work through it, but WWE management do not want to risk it getting any worse.
