Former WWE Superstar Arrested This Weekend Posted by Steve Carrier on 03/06/2011 at 12:17 PM
- Former WWE star Shad Gaspard was apparently arrested over the weekend in Columbus, Ohio for what his wife calls "crossing the street."
Shad's wife wrote the following on Twitter last night:
"This is Shad's wife everyone. I want to address the rumors that are going on around the Internet right now about Shad's arrest. He was indeed arrested today, in Columbus. No use denying it. But Shad did nothing wrong, he was trying to attend the Arnold Classic, and can you guys believe that the Columbus police department has nothing better to do than arrest him for crossing the street????!! That's what they got him for "pedestrian in roadway" I think we should all stand up and be heard! Too many cops abusing their authority!! Apparently they even decided that it was necessary to tackle him.... I am very disappointed in those who "serve and protect" right now."
She then went on to note that Shad's bail had been posted and they have hired a lawyer. She also said that footage of the incident was available and that it was being released to TMZ and other media outlets.
- Christian made his return to SmackDown last night, saving Edge from an Alberto Del Rio attack. Earlier in the night, WWE announced that Christian would be returning to SmackDown on next week's episode.
World Heavyweight Champion Edge def. Drew McIntyre WWE Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel def. Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov (WWE Tag Team Title Match) Michelle McCool & Layla def. Beth Phoenix & Rosa Mendes Big Show def. Kane (Disqualification) Jack Swagger def. JTG
CLEVELAND – World Heavyweight Champion Edge and his No. 1 contender Alberto Del Rio moved one step closer to their blockbuster WrestleMania showdown, when their contract signing for The Show of Shows derailed into absolute chaos.
Edge and Alberto Del Rio had a WrestleMania World Heavyweight Championship Contract Signing (WATCH | PHOTOS) Once both Edge and Alberto Del Rio’s signatures were affixed to their main event WrestleMania World Heavyweight Championship contract (match preview), mayhem quickly took over. Though Edge gained the initial advantage over his aristocratic adversary, interference by Ricardo Rodriguez allowed Del Rio to lock in the excruciating cross armbreaker on the 11-time World Champion. When he attempted to injure Edge further, however, Christian emerged to save his former tag team partner.
Jack Swagger def. JTG (WATCH | PHOTOS) Before Jack Swagger’s match with JTG began, Michael Cole – the man The All-American American will train to face Jerry Lawler at WrestleMania – made a huge announcement. On Monday Night Raw, he will unveil his Special Guest Referee for his match with “The King” on the Grandest Stage of Them All. Swagger then went on to soundly defeat JTG with his dreaded ankle lock.
Big Show def. Kane by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) In the middle of Kane’s epic match with Big Show, The Corre opted to make its way to ringside. Wade Barrett introduced a steel chair into the squared-circle, which The Devil’s Favorite Demon didn’t hesitate to use on his giant foe. But, after the bell – as The Corre attacked The World’s Largest Athlete – Justin Gabriel accidently backed into The Big Red Monster, prompting Kane to level him with the chair as well.
Michelle McCool & Layla def. Beth Phoenix & Rosa Mendes (WATCH | PHOTOS) While the referee’s attention was turned toward Rosa Mendes, Michelle McCool – the non-legal Diva at that point in the match – delivered a devastating kick to Beth Phoenix. This paved the way for her partner-in-flawless Layla to get the pin.
The Undertaker returned to SmackDown (WATCH | PHOTOS) The ominous Undertaker returned to SmackDown in order to respond to the comments made by his WrestleMania opponent Triple H four days ago on Monday Night Raw. Though The Phenom gave tremendous credit to the greatness of The King of Kings, he proclaimed, in no uncertain terms, that The Game will not end his monumental WrestleMania streak that stands at 18-0. (Match preview)
WWE Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel def. Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov (WATCH | PHOTOS) Former WWE Tag Team Champions Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov evoked their rematch clause to challenge the current champions Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater. Thanks to a Corre distraction, “The One Man Rock Band” Slater attacked Santino from behind and cemented the huge victory over their charismatic opponents.
Cody Rhodes Challenged Rey Mysterio to a match at WrestleMania (WATCH | PHOTOS) One week after Cody Rhodes and his Hall of Famer father Dusty Rhodes executed a sinister plot of revenge that took down Rey Mysterio, the second-generation Superstar challenged The Ultimate Underdog to a match at WrestleMania, promising to remove Rey’s mask on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
World Heavyweight Champion Edge def. Drew McIntyre (WATCH | PHOTOS) When Edge came before the WWE Universe to rejoice in the firing of his ex-wife Vickie Guerrero one week ago, Drew McIntyre decided to crash the party and attack The Rated-R Superstar. SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long emerged to inform The Sinister Scotsman that he must immediately face The Ultimate Opportunist in a match or be fired.
After blasting McIntyre with the Spear, Edge picked his opponent’s shoulders off the canvas, unleashing a devastating new submission maneuver to make the “Chosen One” tap-out.
WWE Offers Contract to Female MMA Fighter Posted by Steve Carrier on 03/04/2011 at 01:06 AM
Sources close to Strikeforce Women's Middleweight Champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos indicate the Brazilian mixed martial artist is in negotiations with World Wrestling Entertainment.
Two weeks ago, Cristiane attended a WWE live event in California with her husband, Strikeforce fighter Evangelista Santos. She was offered a contract on the spot.
Christiane has not been offered a fight since her June 26, 2010 bout against Jan Finney. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker declined to comment on the matter, but it is largely assumed the promotion has been unable to find any willing participants over the course of the past nine months.

Last night's heavily hyped episode of TNA iMPACT! drew a 1.36 (1.4) cable rating (not including the overrun), the program's highest mark since January 4th, 2010. The first hour drew a 1.32, while the second hour garnered a 1.41. Impact drew 1.8 million viewers over the course of two hours. The show's overrun featuring Sting vs. Jeff Hardy drew a 1.48.
Here are the quarter hour numbers:
Q1 - 1.52 (1.5) rating - In-ring segment featuring Dixie Carter, Hulk Hogan, Immortal and Fortune
Q2 - 1.26 (1.3) rating - Backstage segments featuring Bart Scott, Immortal, The Jarretts, AJ Styles, Kazarian, Matt Hardy, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff; Beer Money, Inc. vs. Gunner and Murphy
Q3 - 1.32 (1.3) rating - Beer Money, Inc. vs. Gunner and Murphy; backstage segments featuring The Jarretts and Angelina of Jersey Shore; Velvet Sky vs. Sarita, post-match with The Shore and Angelina
Q4 - 1.17 (1.2) rating - In-ring segment featuring The Shore, Angelina, Sarita and The Beautiful People; backstage segments featuring Mr. Anderson, Eric Young, Orlando Jordan, Jeff Jarrett, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle and Hulk Hogan
Q5 - 1.36 (1.4) rating - The Jarretts' wedding; backstage segments with Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, Eric Bischoff and The Jarretts; Scott Steiner vs. Rob Terry

As seen above, the show never dropped below a 1.2 and maintained their audience throughout the entire show. As noted earlier, TNA and SpikeTV are both very happy with that number considering the show went head-to-head with a UFC event and the season finale of The Jersey Shore, which did a huge number. Those two shows share the same demographic as TNA and are their main competition on Thursday nights.
R-Truth def. William Regal Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov def. Zack Ryder & Primo Chris Masters def. Curt Hawkins

Chris Masters def. Curt Hawkins (WATCH | PHOTOS) Something must have lit a fire under Chris Masters recently, because the big man has been simply dominant in recent weeks. After scoring two major victories over the destructive Tyler Reks in recent weeks, The Masterpiece continued his winning streak by overpowering the arrogant Curt Hawkins and putting him away with The Master Lock. The powerhouse’s celebration was short-lived, however. Without warning, Reks stormed the ring and nailed Masters with a debilitating Burning Hammer. Clearly, the rivalry between these two titans is far from over.
Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov def. Zack Ryder & Primo (WATCH | PHOTOS) Two weeks after losing the WWE Tag Team Titles, Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov began to work their way back up the tag ranks with a victory over the cocky pair of Zack Ryder & Primo. A talented team despite their arrogance, Ryder & Primo were formidable opponents for the former champions, but Marella & Kozlov’s experience won out in the end. All it took was a vicious Cobra strike from the Italian Superstar to net a big victory for the odd couple.
R-Truth def. William Regal (WATCH | PHOTOS) R-Truth and William Regal have practically nothing in common. Truth is a fast, flashy rapper from the American south. Regal is an arrogant, uptight snob from England. The two Superstars couldn’t be more different — except for the fact that both men are talented veterans that know how to win. These ring smarts made for an interesting encounter as Regal attempted to use his brutal, submission-based offense to slow down Truth’s blistering speed and cunning. The British Brawler’s strategy worked for much of the bout until the rapping Superstar pulled off a reversal out of nowhere to score the win. Now that’s what’s up.
Dixie on Re-signing Sting, New TV Shows, More Posted by Amish Patel on 03/04/2011 at 11:05 AM
- Dixie Carter recently appeared on The Total Nonstop Podcast to promote last night's iMPACT and here are some highlights, courtesy of PW Torch:
Re-signing Sting for last night's show: "We do have one big surprise and I think the thing about surprises is there are very few of them in this business; there's very few sure things. This is something I've worked on and I've worked on very hard. To me, this is one of the sure things, for me, in this business. People will have to tune in and see. I hope they are as happy and excited as I am."
Having a role on TV: "It's something I never wanted to do, but I took a tremendous amount of pressure. It's pretty hard when someone looks at you and says, 'Okay, if you could be a part of something that maybe makes an impact positively on the company,' why would you not do that? I think the reason is I didn't know if I could do it, quite honestly. I think I've gone from absolutely not wanting to do it to it's just more of an evolution of me how I've grown in this role since I first started."
More TNA programming: "Having more shows on television in the U.S., to me, is a critical element of our growth. It's hard to compete with two hours of TV against ten or 12 hours of television (from WWE) every week."
Taking iMPACT on the road: "We know that it would be important to take Impact out and tour, but when I talk about running this company like a business, I don't put my head on the pillow every night without thinking about staying in business and turning a profit and giving these great wrestlers and fans a company 10, 15, 20 years from now. And we have to make good business decisions."
"Touring is extremely expensive. It's extremely expensive to take a production like we have on the road for television. We have to be smart about it. Yes, we know it's critical. Yes, we know it's absolutely the next step in the evolution of TNA... For us to grow, we need to take Impact on the road."
- Shark Boy announced on his official website that he requested his release from TNA Wrestling, which was granted.
"I have officially requested and been granted my release from TNA Wrestling," he wrote. "I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at TNA for giving me the opportunity to perform in front of their audience since the very early days of the company. Thanks especially to the great TNA fans who have given me their support throughout the past eight years... Now on to the next chapter!"
TNA Impact Results - 3/3/2011 From Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, North Carolina Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
TNA is out of the iMPACT Zone as they are on the road! This is only the second time in history that TNA is out of Orlando Florida for iMPACT! This show is pull of matches, conflicts, drama, and so much more! We will see the wedding of Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett! We will so see the return of Dixie Carter and Hulk Hogan!
The show starts and it starts with a bang! It has a new entrance with three huge titan trons as the background. Dixie Carter's music comes on and she makes her way down the ring. She gets in the ring and begins to talk.
She starts to tear up as she thanks every fan of TNA around the world. She is here tonight, she is here tonight (as she said it twice) about the legal situation about TNA. She said it hasn't gone as she hoped. She gets cut off as Immortal's music plays. Eric Bischoff, Ric Flair, Matt Hardy, Rob Terry, Gunner and Murphy come walk down to the ring and get in to meet face to face with Carter. Eric gets a mic and tells Dixie that, even though they allowed her to come out here to say a few words, they didn't want her to try to tell people everything they would like to here. Eric says that Dixie has "one massive set of balls" as she is in a women in a man's world! Ric gets on the mic and tells her that she is in Flair Country! The crowd is hot as the WOOOOOO from that statement. Ric talks about how they spent a night in his hotel one time in Orlando. Ric says all his famous characteristics and WOOOOOOs again. Ric says in order to be that, you need money. He wants the money and she has the money. Ric introduces the one and only.....Hulk Hogan!
Hulk Hogan comes out and he does his famous taunts. This very hot crowd is happy to see Hogan. They chant "Hogan, Hogan, Hogan" as he gets in the ring. Dixie doesn't look happy at all. Hogan states that he know owns......100% of TNA! He has his head office in Nashville, where TNA's headquarters are. He runs the show, controls the matches.....he will be doing it all! He then states that Dixie is going to be unemployeed. He then goes on to insult what she has done to these fans. She made them believe the hype and always let them done. Hogan says, "Dixie, you supply the money, period." They didn't go into business together, they joined forces to take TNA away from her. Hogan says the one thing she has left is the fans! The fans don't have a damn thing to do about it though. Just then, music plays and it's Fortune!!!! AJ Styles, Beer Money, and Kazarian come on the entrance stage.
AJ says they can do it the easy way, or they can do it the hard way, but Fortune would prefer the hard way. Styles says there is a women in the ring, and Kazarian interrupts to say that they aren't talking about Bischoff! AJ continues and says we are talking about Dixie as she is the one who brought everyone here and gave them their jobs. Styles orders her out of the ring. Eric allows her to leave. Styles walks up the ramp with Dixie. Robert Roode comes on the mic and says to Hulk that he can't believe he got into wrestling from him. He said you should never meet your idols as they will let them done. Roode asks Hogan, "Who do you think you are?" Flair interrupts and says to kiss my @ss and walk away. Roode says that he would rather kick it then kiss it and Fortune runs to the ring. Guards stop them before they get in. Immortal eggs them on! The show fades.
The show comes back on and Immortal is backstage with New York Jet star Bart Scott. Hogan says that it seems like he has been part of Immortal since the beginning. Fortune and Dixie then meet up with them backstage. They mock Dixie and she runs away. Fortune stands up for her, and just as fast as they came into the camera screen, they battle it out! They try to stop it as Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett walk past as they scream, "We're here!" (Great transition!)
A video airs to showcase the rivalry between Kurt Angle, Jeff Jarrett, and Karen Jarrett. It shows their wedding plans and how Kurt is going to have to live with this for the rest of his life!
Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan are in their office. Eric is getting upset as he reveals that some network person from Spike TV made a match that will have Jeff Hardy put his title on the line tonight. Eric suggests that it's Mr. Anderson! "This is bull!", Hogan says.
Beer Money vs. Gunner and Murphy for the TNA Tag Team Titles
Gunner and Murphy are already in the ring. Beer Money come out as Storm rides on his little motor cooler. They get in the ring, and the match quickly starts!
Murtphy takes control on Storm as he attacks him and does several moves. He puts him in his corner and tags Gunner. They double team and qhip Storm into the corner. Storm comes back and knocks both of them done. Roode gets tagged in and he attacks Gunner like no tomorrow! He does back body strops and closelines! He does a spinebuser on Gunner, covers, but only gets a two! All four men are in the ring now as they use double team moves! The challengers have some chemistry issues as Gunner knocks down Murphy. Beer sets up their finisher for the 1-2-3! Winners and Still TNA Tag Team Champs: Beer Money
As they celebrate in the ring Ink Inc. come out on stage. They talk about what's theirs and what they want. They want the tag team belts and say if Beer Money isn't cowards, then they will put those titles on the line at Victory Road. Beer Money has no problem with that as they accept it gladly!
The camera goes backstage to Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett as they are getting ready for their wedding. Eric Young is in the doorway and says he sees this wedding coming. He wants to be Jeff's Best Man. He then wants to be the Made of Honor! He also wants to be the Flower Girl! Karen insists that Jeff closes the door. Jeff fools around as he is about to close it, but doesn't. He finally closes it and Karen and Jeff lock tongue!

They have quick covers, but they get up and, after running into the ropes, Sky does an armdrag and then a bulldog style move. Rosita gets in the ring, but Love gets in and tackles Rosita to the ground. Earl Hebner, the referee of the match, sends both of them to the back. It's now an one on one match. Sarita takes control as she applies knees to the back of Sky. Sarita has Sky in a headlock, but Sky slides out of it, grabs Sarita, and DDTs her! She gets the cover and gets the win! Winner: Velvet Sky
Love comes back and celebrates with Sky, but Roobie E., Cookie, and Jersey Shore's Angelina come out on the stage and walk down the ramp. Cookie says that Sky and Love brought in that "fake" J-Woww a couple months ago, she brought in the actual star of Jersey Shore, Angelina! They get in the ring and Angelina says she wants to face J-Woww next week in a Jersey match. Sky says that they got better things to do then to talk to them. Sky goes through the second rope, but Angelina kicks her in the gut. She gets back in and they attack each other. Love gets involved, but it doesn't last long as Robbie E., Cookie, and Angelina leave the ring. Sarita meets up with them on stage. Love issues a 6 knockout match for next week! It's going to happen!
Mr. Anderson is walkinig backstage. He says he is going to get the title shot tonight as Spike TV knows they made a mistake and they are going to give him his shot tonight. The camera man asks him if he has any final words for Jeff Hardy. Anderson says that nice guys finish last.
Eric Young is shown backstage as he goes into Orlando Jordon's locker room. Eric says he is going to be the Flower Girl. Eric is wondering where the ring is. He yells at Jordon as he thinks he took the ring. He flips him over his head and pins him down on the ground. Orlando tells him to check his shoe. He checks it and found it. Eric says that the flip was a test of friendship.

The show returns and Hulk Hogan is on the phone. The camera peaks around the opening in the door. Hogan says that Anderson would be the perfect man for this match. He tells the person on the phone that they should be on equal terms on what is going on. He then states that surprises do equal ratings, but he should be notified. They agree on something and hangs up the phone.
The wedding of Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett begins!
Eric Young is wearing the old TNA World Title as he holds the rings on a pillow. Orlando Jordon is beside him throwing flowers down. They walk down the ring to wedding style music. Jeff Jarrett then comes down the ramp. As he walks, Kurt Angle runs down and hits Jeff from behind. Jeff falls. Kurt brings him to the wedding cake. He does several punches, but Jeff doesn't fall back into it. Jeff pokes the eyes of Kurt and he moves back. Jeff runs to him, but he closelines Jeff down. He points to the cake as he wants to throw Jeff in it. Karen then comes out and jumps on the back of Kurt. He shoos her off of her. Kurt stands up and makes Karen walk backwards. She slaps Kurt in the face. Kurt grabs her, turns her around, and smashes her face right into the cake! He moves her face all around. She lifts up her face and it's full of cake! Her whole face is caked with cake (pun intended) and her hair is ruined with icing! She flips out as Kurt's music plays! Jeff Jarrett can't believe it!
Jeff Hardy is shown backstage in Hogan's office. Hogan says that he shouldn't do anymore of those ladder matches as that was just insane. He tells Jeff that the network wants him to fight again with the title on the line. He then tells Hardy that he doesn't know who Jeff's opponent is. Jeff gets upset as he should know who he is going face. Hogan said he tried hard to find out, but he couldn't. The network thinks surprises makes ratings, but he doesn't neccessarly agree with that. Hogan wishes him luck and both have their hands meet as Jeff walks away.
The show returns and it shows video footage from what just happened to Karen and Jeff.
They are backstage and they are flipping out on Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair. Eric yells them to STOP! He says that Karen needs to take a shower.

He gets off the phone and calls for Mr. Anderson to come in the room. He tells Anderson that he isn't going to get his title shot tonight. Ken says he hates Hogan, and Hogan says he hates Anderson. Hogan sits down and Anderson questions him why he is sitting down. Hogan says he is sitting down so he doesn't put a fist into Ken's face. Hogan then pulls off his back brace.

The Wedding of Karen Jarrett and Jeff Jarrett....take 2!
Eric Young and Orlando Jordon come down the ramp like they did the first time. They wear the exact same things and do the exact same activity as Eric is the Ring Bear and Orlando is the Flower Girl. Jeff Jarrett now comes out. He actually comes down the ramp now and gets in the ring. Karen Jarrett now comes on out and Kurt Angle is beside her. Wedding music plays as he walks her down the ramp. She still has cake on her face and hair. Kurt steps down on the bottom rope so Karen could get in the ring. Kurt joins the hands of Karen and Jeff. Jeff is shocked that he is actually doing this by the rules. Kurt pats Jeff on the back and stands behind him. The priest begins to talk. He quickly asks if anyone thinks these two shouldn't get married, speak up or forever hold our peace. The whole crowd boos, but Kurt doesn't do a single thing. The priest asks if Jeff wants to love, yada, yada, and take care of Karen. He says, "I have and I will." He asks the same thing to Karen and she says the exact thing Jeff said. The priest tells e veryone stand up. He then states that they both of their own vows that they want to say. Jeff reads his speech. He says that now Karen is married to a real man. He insults the last marriage of Karen's. Kurt is shown in the background, but he just smiles and smiles. Jeff says that all of the gold medals in the world doesn't symbolize the love that he has for her. Karen begins to talk, but the crowd chants, "You Suck, You Suck, You Suck." Karen also insults Kurt and their marriage, but without saying his name. Kurt continues to smile from ear to ear. She says that Jeff isn't selfish and an amazing father. Karen finally states that Jeff completes her. The priest asks for the rings. Eric looks at the pillow and there isn't a ring there. He looks in his shoe, and he finds it. Jeff puts the ring on Karen's finger. He repeats after the priest. Orlando Jordon gives the other ring to Karen. She repeats the words from the priest. The priest announces them husband and wife in part of the Motor Vechile department. Kurt asks the priest if he is done. He says yes. He knocks over the podium and picks up an ax that was under it. Everyone leaves the ring quickly except Angle. He smashes everything in the ring to little bit size pieces. As Karen and Jeff are on the stage, Eric Bischoff comes out with Bart Scott. Eric sends Scott down. Scott walks down and gets in the ring with Kurt. They are nose to nose. He pushes Kurt back. Kurt moves back toward him, but Scott pushes him back again. He moves forward, and then turns around to leave, but Scott touches him to turn him back around and pushes him one more time. Kurt had enough. He knocks down Scott and applies the ankle lock. The guards come in and break it up. They help Scott up the ramp as Tenay says the Jets have been tapping out since the 60s!

Jeff can't believe it. Sting comes out with a sparkling entrance robe as the crowd is loving this! He has been gone for 4 months, but he is back. Jeff leaves the ring to get far away as Sting as possible. Jeff holds his head as you can tell he doesn't want to go through with this. Jeff gets on the apron, but Sting goes right after him, and hiptosses him right in the ring. Jeff quickly slides out and goes up the ramp. He stops and stares as the referee counts. Jeff gets back in the ring. They go to lock-up, but Jeff kicks Sting right in the gut! He then takes advantage as he puts Sting's face right in the corner and kicks him several times. He takes him to the center of the ring and tries for a suplex, but Sting takes the legs out from under Jeff and applies the Scorpion Death Lock.

Injured Star Returns in SD Dark Match Main Event Posted by Steve Carrier on 03/02/2011 at 12:53 AM
After tonight's WWE Smackdown tapings, World Heavyweight Champion Edge, Christian & Big Show defeated Alberto Del Rio & The Corre in a dark match main event.
Before the match Edge said it was going to take a lot more than a bloody nose to keep him and Christian apart. Christian hit the Kill Switch on Del Rio to get the pinfall victory. After the match, Show hit Del Rio with a chokeslam and Edge hit him with the spear.
Christian, who addressed the crowd after the match, hasn't worked in the ring since tearing his pectoral muscle in September 2010. He made his return to WWE at last month's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view
Did HHH & The Rock Help the WWE Raw Ratings? Posted by Steve Carrier on 03/01/2011 at 09:54 PM
- The February 28 Raw telecast drew a 3.82 cable rating, slightly down from last week's 3.85. The show averaged 5.6 million viewers overall (compared to 5.86 million the week before) and drew hours of 3.80 and 3.84.
- The February 26 episode of A.M. Raw did a 0.62 cable rating, with 709,000 viewers.
- A nasty rumor that John Cena had passed away this morning has been spreading through Twitter today. There's actually a large number of fans who were falling for the hoax. One fan wrote: "My whole office almost broke down in tears!"
- Several readers from Canada sent word that there was a "TV-14" rating displayed before tonight's RAW. If that's the case, this could be due to the more edgier promos by The Rock and John Cena, among others over the past few weeks.
Evan Bourne def. Sheamus Randy Orton def. Michael McGillicutty Brie Bella won a No. 1 Contender's Diva Battle Royal U.S. Champion Daniel Bryan vs. William Regal ended in a No Contest Johne Cena def. Alex Riley in a Steel Cage Match
BUFFALO, N.Y. - As the WWE Universe looked on, an entire galaxy of Superstars appeared inside the HSBC Arena. While several triumphed in their insults and in-ring endeavors, others crashed as if flying over nearby Niagara Falls in a barrel.
John Cena def. Alex Riley in a Steel Cage Match (WATCH | PHOTOS | TWEETED PHOTOS) Rarely has social media been so unsociable. During a Steel Cage Match between John Cena and Alex Riley, WWE Champion The Miz used his cell phone to tweet out a photo of his WrestleMania opponent with his face pressed against the unforgiving steel grid. He then tossed the phone to Riley, who used it to clock his opponent in the face.
In the end, though, Riley lost the match – and his job as a result. As stipulated, the frat-boy fighter was forced to retire as Miz’s apprentice after his defeat. The Cenation Commander-in-Chief did not celebrate long, however, before Miz ambushed him with a Skull Crushing Finale onto the cold, hard arena floor.
U.S. Champion Daniel Bryan vs. William Regal ended in a No Contest (WATCH | PHOTOS) The scheduled match between United States Daniel Bryan and William Regal was over before it even began. As the U.S. Champion approached the ring, WWE Champion The Miz ambushed him. As a result, Bryan’s match with Regal was proclaimed a no contest. The Cleveland Screamer described his motivation for the attack by simply saying that Raw is his show.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson rebutted John Cena’s comments from last week (WATCH) After suffering a barrage of verbal grenades from John Cena the week prior, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson returned fire. The host of WrestleMania mocked the Dr. of Thuganomic’s rapping skills. He then went on to tell the WWE Universe that Cena unjustly called him a liar, that he “loves the WWE” and that he will soon confront Cena face-to-face.
Shawn Michaels discussed Triple H vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania (WATCH) Shawn Michaels, the man who founded D-Generation X with Triple H and faced The Undertaker in classic showdowns the past two WrestleManias, offered his thoughts on the powerhouse clash. HBK told the WWE Universe that he has mixed emotions, but he's rooting for his friend Triple H to emerge victorious.
Brie Bella won a No. 1 Contender’s Diva Battle Royal (WATCH | PHOTOS) Do you believe in magic? If you’re Brie Bella, you have every reason to. The beautiful and cunning Diva emerged victorious against Natalya, Gail Kim, Tamina, Maryse, Alicia Fox, Melina and her sister Nikki. As Divas Champion Eve looked on, The Bella Twins hoodwinked the referee and performed Twin Magic to lock up the win for Brie.
Randy Orton vs. CM Punk WrestleMania match announced; The Viper def. Michael McGillicutty (WATCH | PHOTOS) The Raw General Manager has proven he or she is as astute as they are anonymous. Sensing that tensions between Randy Orton and CM Punk have risen to uncontrollable heights, the GM declared that the two will settle their substantial differences on a stage equally as grand, WrestleMania XXVII.
During the announcement, the GM also revealed that Orton must face every one of Punk’s New Nexus disciples in singles matches over the next few weeks. If The Viper defeats that member, they are banned from WrestleMania. However, should any member defeat Orton, that member is permitted to be in Punk’s corner at The Show of Shows. Not only that, if any New Nexus member interferes, the group will be disbanded.
So far, Orton 1 – New Nexus 0. WWE’s Apex Predator battled Michael McGillicutty and managed to defeat the fellow third-generation Superstar. Dealing a further blow to The Second City Savior, Orton punted McGillicutty in the head after Punk pleaded that he show restraint.
“Stone Cold” Steve Austin to return to Raw next week The Texas Rattlesnake returns! The host of WWE’s Tough Enough program, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, will make his way back to Raw next Monday night. There’s no telling what might happen, so don’t miss any of the action!
Michael Cole agreed to a WrestleMania match against Jerry “The King” Lawler (WATCH | PHOTOS) After scurrying away last week in the face of a challenge by his fellow announcer Jerry “The King” Lawler, Michael Cole returned to Raw with a change of heart. After inviting Lawler into the ring, Cole agreed to face him in a match at WrestleMania – under two conditions. First, the bigheaded broadcaster would get to name a special guest referee. Second, during the bout he would get to have in his corner the Superstar who will train him, Jack Swagger!
Once Lawler agreed to the conditions, Swagger approached the ring and he and Cole attacked the WWE Hall of Famer with “The All-American American” snapping on an ankle lock.
Evan Bourne def. King Sheamus (WATCH | PHOTOS) King Sheamus continued the tumble off his throne. His latest unceremonious defeat came compliments of Evan Bourne, who reemerged on Raw for the first time in months. The high-flyer prevailed in the wake of a Triple H Pedrigree delivered to Sheamus just prior to his bout with Bourne.
Triple H addressed the WWE Universe; Sheamus confronted The Game (WATCH | PHOTOS) After months away from Raw recuperating from an injury suffered at the hands of Sheamus, Triple H has returned with renewed determination. The Cerebral Assassin explained to the WWE Universe that, although he has accomplished an enormous amount in WWE, he has yet to enjoy an unadulterated WrestleMania moment, one not overshadowed by other Superstars. Were he to defeat The Undertaker and put an end to The Deadman’s undefeated streak at The Show of Shows, then, and only then, could he experience such a moment.
After The King of Kings’ speech, the man who hobbled him months earlier paid a visit. King Sheamus interrupted and swaggered up to Triple H. It was unclear precisely what the Irishman expected, but what he received instead was a long overdue Pedigree through an announce table. Time to “pay” The Game, indeed.
