Scott Hall's rep talks more about his incident Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 04/10/2011 at 03:29 PM
A representative of Scott Hall told TMZ that he is upset that Top Rope Promotions is using footage of his in-ring incident from Friday night to promote their online PPV event.
"We find the footage to be very distasteful and not suitable for a pay-per-view audience and it's sad that the promoter has decided to air the uncut footage from the pay-per-view," representative Geena Jinev Anac said.
A video was posted online of Hall struggling to get into the ring, followed by a promo to purchase the online event, which takes place tonight.
Hall was hospitalized following an appearance at an independent wrestling show in River Fall, Massachusetts on Friday. He is being treated for cardiac issues and possible complications from the 10 different prescriptions he's taking.

Eric Bischoff posted the following on his Facebook page:
"Just watched the video of Scott Hall's appearance in New England. Wish I knew how to help him. I know that others (including Vince McMahon) have tried recently. He was such an amazing talent, and deep down inside, a great person. His demons are killing him."
SmackDown results: Charisma meets destiny, to the Extreme By: Michael Burdick April 8, 2011 Tags: SmackDown: April 8, 2011, Edge, Alberto Del Rio CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – In the wake of WrestleMania, SmackDown moved to the “Extreme,” as Alberto Del Rio snatched the opportunity to take on World Heavyweight Champion Edge in a Ladder Match at Extreme Rules.
Alberto Del Rio def. Christian in a No. 1 Contender’s Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) With 11-time World Champion Edge sitting in with the SmackDown announce team, Christian battled Alberto Del Rio for the right to become the No. 1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title and take on The Rated-R Superstar at Extreme Rules. When Captain Charisma became momentarily distracted by Edge’s Spear to Brodus Clay outside the ring, Del Rio seized the moment, leveling his opponent with a kick to the back of the head to pick up the monumental three-count. Del Rio will now face The Ultimate Opportunist in a Ladder Match at Extreme Rules. (Preview)
Sin Cara flies high (WATCH | PHOTOS) As Michael Cole and Jack Swagger were singing their praises from their nefarious actions at WrestleMania, WWE’s explosive new Superstar Sin Cara emerged, defying both gravity and logic with a jaw-dropping attack on The All-American American.
Beth Phoenix & Kelly Kelly def. Michelle McCool & Layla (WATCH | PHOTOS) When Michelle McCool was hurled into the ropes by Beth Phoenix, her momentum knocked Layla off the apron. As a result, the English-born Diva was unable to tag in when Michelle came calling. Later, when Layla was trying to tag Michelle in, a sudden “back issue” kept the first-ever Divas Champion from relieving her partner-in-flawless, allowing Kelly Kelly to pick up the quick victory. As the dust cleared, the animosity between the members of Team Lay-Cool was noticeable.
Cody Rhodes def. Trent Barreta (WATCH | PHOTOS) When Cody Rhodes was kicked in the face by Trent Barreta, the jaded Superstar completely snapped, unleashing a bitter assault on his opponent that culminated with the Cross Rhodes for the win. After the bell, Rhodes turned his protective facemask into a weapon against Barreta, prompting Rey Mysterio to storm to the ring and nearly snatch the facemask off his emotionally-scarred adversary.
Big Show, Kane, Kofi Kingston & Santino Marella def. The Corre (WATCH | PHOTOS) In an Eight-Man Tag Team 2-out-of-3 Falls Match, Kofi Kingston used a high cross body on WWE Tag Team Champion Justin Gabriel to score the first fall. Following a devastating boot to the face of Santino Marella, Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett hit The Italian Stallion with Wasteland, tying the match at one fall a piece. As Kane was preparing to finish Barrett with a chokeslam, The Corre’s use of excessive force brought the disqualification, giving their opponents the third fall and the overall victory.
The Corre was then treated to a post-match onslaught by their triumphant adversaries, culminating in a triple chokeslam on Ezekiel Jackson by Kane, Big Show and Santino.
Edge spray painted Alberto Del Rio’s Rolls Royce (WATCH | PHOTOS) After Alberto Del Rio’s WrestleMania moment of destiny – and his Rolls Royce Silver Spur worth $120,000 – were destroyed by Edge, the aristocratic Superstar returned to SmackDown gunning for more. He proclaimed that destiny can be delayed, but not stopped. The Master Manipulator interrupted him, rolling in on a tow truck containing Del Rio’s ruined luxury automobile. The Ultimate Opportunist opted to add insult to “auto”-injury, spray painting his elitist foe’s fancy ride. Although an outraged Del Rio demanded another title match, Edge responded that Christian deserved it more, since Captain Charisma had defeated Del Rio in singles SmackDown matches two weeks in a row. Before things turned physical, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long created a main event No. 1 Contender’s Match between Christian and Del Rio. The winner would face Edge at Extreme Rules in a Ladder Match.
Scott Hall Update: Posted by Dave Mitchell on 04/09/2011 at 12:57 PM
(Partial Source: pwinsider.com)
As we've been covering here on the site, Scott Hall appeared at a live event for Top Rope Promotions on Friday night and was in "no condition to perform." Hall could barely walk or stand up on his own and had to be held up by several people.
Ryan Drew from Top Rope Promotions sent word that Hall showed up to the building in the afternoon under the influence of something and was "belligerent and incoherent."
There was an autograph signing and Hall fell asleep during it and when he was awake, his signature consisted of a line, not a name.
Drew issued the following statement regarding Hall's latest episode:
"Unfortunately, Top Rope Promotions does not own the footage, the iPPV company does. And they plan on running the iPPV as planned with Scott Hall segment intact. TRP would like to issue an apology and would urge fans not to order the iPPV, as the Scott Hall footage is disturbing. He needed several people to get him in and out of the ring. And he even fell over in the ring. Please pray for the guy. We wish him the best."
During a recent interview with the Daily Star, TNA champion Sting made his first public comments about the 90-second match he had with Jeff Hardy at Victory Road. There were widespread reports that the match was cut short at the last minute because Jeff Hardy was "in no condition" to perform that night. Sting said:
"I love Jeff Hardy. I don't want to do anything to harm him. He has personal issues, everyone knows that. But some things are true and some are not. What is true is that it all came to a head that week and hit really big that night. I hated what happened because I wanted to give fans a great match. But I realize it had to happen the way it did."
After the match was over, Sting says he was very concerned about Hardy's condition:
"And after all was said and done I came to the back and made sure he was OK. He is OK and he's been talking to people close to him a lot. Jeff is getting stronger. He's riding 10 miles a day on his mountain bike to get in condition, I hear! Good luck to him."
With WrestleMania 27 in the history books, there is talk within WWE about when the company will hold this year's talent draft. There had been talk a few weeks ago that there would be no draft this year, but we have not heard anything concrete about the draft being scrapped. If the draft does take place , it will not be this month as in previous years, but would likely take place in June, when WWE will be holding two 3-hour episodes of RAW.
Earlier this week, it was reported that former WWE star Scott Hall had relapsed once again and was hospitalized for an overdose. Hall's reps released a statement that his hospitalization was not due to a drug overdose, but instead extremely low blood pressure. Now, some shocking, disturbing video has come out that will leave everybody deeply concerned about Hall's condition.
Scott Hall appeared at an independent wrestling show on Friday night from Fall River, Massachusetts and was so out of it that he couldn't even walk to the ring or stand up by himself. His speech was very slurred and it appears he thought he was overseas in England, based on some of his comments to the live crowd.
Twitter user @stevevr1965 was at the show and had this to say about Scott Hall's appearance:
"Update on Scott Hall. He was so gone at the top rope show in Fall River Ma tonight. Very embarrassing for him & promotion. I didn't take any pics because I was actually sad for him. But others took video that will surely end up on youtube. Hall was so wasted he needed two people to help him move. He couldn't sign autographs only take pics and his eyes were half closed."
Former WWE wrestler Scotty 2 Hotty (Twitter user @thescotty2hotty), who was also at the show, re-tweeted part of what @stevevr1965 wrote and posted the following himself:
"Just witnessed the saddest, most embarrassing thing in my career!!!! How many guys have to die before some guys learn?"
a very disturbing video have been posted online of Scott Hall from the show - and it is hard to watch. You can view it below.
Former WWE and TNA talent Scott Hall has been hospitalized following a drug overdose. No further details are available at this time.
The former Intercontinental Champion has been battling serious health issues over the past year. He was hospitalized last June for double pneumonia, which had affected both lungs. He was hospitalized again in August due to complications from pneumonia. After recovering, Hall checked into a WWE-sponsored rehabilitation facility, and checked out in early October. Hall was hospitalized weeks later as he needed a pacemaker implanted into his heart.
Hall claimed last week he would not be on hand for the WrestleMania XXVII festivities in Atlanta, Georgia because the atmosphere would be detrimental to his quest to stay sober.
He posted his last Twitter message Sunday night while watching WrestleMania XXVII, writing "Taker wins!"

Santino Marella def. Ted DiBiase (WATCH | PHOTOS) Entering the ring without his girlfriend, Maryse, by his side, the smug Ted DiBiase seemed ready to focus on getting a win in the ring instead of bickering with his French-Canadian beauty. But The Fortunate Son found Santino Marella to be a more worthy opponent than he may have expected. Still hot off his tag team win at WrestleMania XXVII, the Italian Superstar weathered DiBiase’s offensive storm before striking with The Cobra for another big win.
Yoshi Tatsu def. Tyson Kidd (WATCH | PHOTOS) Two of Raw’s young lions locked up on “WWE Superstars” tonight as the explosive Yoshi Tatsu tangled with the snide Canadian, Tyson Kidd. As expected, it was a fast-paced contest with each man coming within seconds of scoring the win on multiple occasions. After some breathless action, Kidd nearly found victory when he attempted to put Tatsu in The Sharpshooter, but the Japanese Superstar persevered and connected with a stiff kick to the head to beat his arrogant opponent.
Drew McIntyre def. JTG (WATCH | PHOTOS) “WWE Superstars” started off on a sour note as the sinister Drew McIntyre brought his dark cloud personality to the ring. Locking up with the exciting JTG, the twisted Scotsman did everything he could to pick apart his opponent before knocking him out with a devastating boot to the face. Then, with a demented look in his eye, McIntyre pulled the prone JTG off the canvas and nailed him with the Future Shock DDT for an emphatic ending to a brutal contest.
Stratus comments on incident with Morrison at WM Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 04/08/2011 at 05:09 PM
Busted Open satellite radio show with Trish Stratus Hosts: Dave LaGreca and Doug Mortman Airs Mondays and Wednesdays on Sirius 125 and XM 241 from 2-4 ET Visit Facebook.com/bustedopen for more information
Trish Stratus on John Morrison snubbing her at Wrestlemania: "I got a bit of cold shoulder action, correct. John Morrison himself is amazing. He’s a great athlete. I was really looking forward to working with him. I thought it would be cool if we could do some stuff together. He didn’t think it would be that cool. It happens.
"Hey whatever. It happens. You know he’s into his thing and just didn’t think that I should part of his thing I guess, but I still admire him as an athlete, as a performer. I think he does a great job out there. Cold shoulder? Yeah I felt it. I was shunned. Some people are not smart maybe? You know they wrestle well, but maybe they’re not smart. I don’t know.”
On John Cena’s persona, and could she teach him how to wrestle? Yeah because he has no idea right? I mean if he could only learn how to wrestle he’d really learn how to come along in this business. So you would like to have his character developed further. You would like to get to know him a little bit more? Maybe that’s all he’s got. What can I say?"
On working with Snooki: "The first move she ever did when she was on Raw that one time was a ‘crotch drop,’ and then she did the ‘butt bump’ (at Wrestlemania). It works. It’s kind of cool because this is what I do as a tough enough trainer. I had to access these kids. Right? So I had to say what is your athletic background? If you’re an athlete? Boom. You’re already in. That’s the first thing I look for. Forget the charisma because I’ll see if that’s there, but initially I need to know in order to do what we need to do in this business you need to be an athlete.
"Number one she told me she came from a cheerleading background as well as being a gymnast. A partier does not qualify. Well you know we went to New Jersey her and I. Yeah so I saw the New Jersey side of things. Pretty interesting. She had some moves. The ‘bitch slap.’ I don’t know if that’s really a move, but that works, but that’s what I had to do. I had to access what she can do. Basically we play up her strengths. We play up what she can do.
"She did this crazy triple Lindy back flip thing. That worked awesome. I think she surprised everyone. I tell you the coolest thing that Snooki went out there and the fans did not like her. She’s on the good guys’ side and they booed the heck out of her. She just took it in though. The minute she did those flips the crowd was like 'that’s cool.' Okay, we’re down with that. So she swerved 70,000 fans in an instant, which is pretty awesome."
We kick it off with a recap of last week's cage match and subsequent return of Christopher Daniels.
To the Impact Zone we go, as Fortune and Daniels make their entrance, with Daniels getting a nice welcome back chant. He says he appreciates it, but he has to admit that his relationship with TNA has been rocky because he's been in and out of favor so many times, but that's okay because it's the wrestling business. But there's one thing more important to him than the business, and that's the friendships he made. He calls AJ Styles a brother, and they've had their ups and downs but have always had each other's backs no matter what. They've kept that promise for eight years, but three weeks ago he saw what Bully Ray did to his best friend and he realized that it was time for him to come back to TNA. He offers his loyalty to AJ to the rest of Fortune and begs them to let him be the fourth man in Lethal Lockdown.
Immortal's music hits, and out comes Flair with Hardy, Abyss and Ray. Flair says this has gone on too long and they're past the point of no return, but he doesn't even know who Daniels is and hasn't seen him coming and going anywhere. Flair points to Fortune and says they're the champions and are the best there is, and that he hopes AJ is stuck sitting home for the rest of his life. Flair says Fortune made a mistake siding with AJ rather than himself, and now they've got this fly by night talking for them. Flair gives him the opportunity to walk out of TNA right now, because someone's going to get hurt and it's not Immortal. Daniels tells Flair that he appreciates Flair's offer, but he can take his offer and stick it straight up his ass, and nobody wants to be in Lethal Lockdown more than him. Flair says he and Hogan have decided that he's not under contract and has no business here and tells him to hit the bricks. Daniels says Flair obviously doesn't want him here, but the Network want Daniels here and it seems like someone is one step ahead of all of them.
Hogan's music hits, and he comes out with Bischoff in tow. Hogan says that he runs this place and he makes the rules, but they don't have a problem with him being on TV and if the Network wants him, they'll get him. If the Network wants him to have a contract, then Bischoff will give him one, and as far as Lockdown goes, Hogan would love to see him in the ring. But he's still in charge, and he makes a Daniels vs Bully Ray match tonight. Ray tells Daniels if he had a brain, he would have taken Flair's advice and hit the bricks, and he doesn't want any part of Ray because he crippled his best friend, and if Daniels wants it, Ray will put him in a bed right next to his friend. Ray says he doesn't know why Daniels would want to come back and fight him because he's the baddest motherf'r on the block, and tells Daniels to go back to California and put some more mascara on, paint his fingernails, and maybe a little bit of lipstick, and go watch Oprah. Daniels says if he were Ray, he wouldn't worry about his makeup, he should worry about the guy kicking his ass. Daniels goes after Ray, leading to a brawl breaking out between the two sides.
We go backstage where Ken Anderson gets unpacked and opens up his laptop, and finds an envelope from Sting with a letter inside telling him that last week was just the preview and tonight...it's SHOWTIME! Anderson says he would have preferred flowers and then sings that it's a beautiful day in the Impact Zone.
We go to Hogan and Bischoff's office, and Hogan is really pissed off that the Network keeps screwing with him. They always seem to be a step ahead of them, and whoever is behind this thinks like a wrestler. They won the lawsuit, and something's gotta be done. Hogan says something has to be done fast because HE'S TIRED OF THE DAMN NETWORK! Hogan slams the door, having finally noticed the guy standing there with a camera recording his conversation.
Time for our first match...
Hernandez & Anarchia vs Tommy Dreamer & Devon
He was announced as simply Devon, so I guess that's what we'll call him from here on out. Dreamer backdrops Hernandez to the floor as Devon lays Anarchia out and hits a running headbutt for 2. Devon with a drop toehold sets Anarchia up for a kneedrop from Dreamer for 2. Dreamer nails Hernandez outside the ring and sets Anarchia up for the Whazzup, Devon nails it, and then Hernandez comes in and goes at it with Devon. Dreamer dumps Anarchia and goes after him to the floor as Devon hits a Thesz Press. Anarchia rams Tommy into the ringpost as Devon sets up for the Deathdrop, but Rosita comes into the ring so Devon turns his attention to her and kisses her. Unfortunately, Anarchia nails Devon from the outside with a chair and Hernandez covers for the win.
Winners: Hernandez & Anarchia
Hernandez sends Sarita and Rosita outside to pull up the ringside mats as they put the boots to Tommy and Devon. Hernandez goes to give Dreamer the Border Toss onto the floor but Matt Morgan runs in and nails Anarchia, then goes face to face with Hernandez. Anarchia grabs Morgan from behind and gets chokeslammed, but Hernandez slides out to the floor and heads for the hills.
Still to come: Angelina Love & Velvet Sky challenge Sarita & Rosita for the Knockouts Tag Team Title, and Jeff Jarrett has a promise for Lockdown!
Backstage, Winter is freaking out on Angelina Love for agreeing to the match tonight because Velvet Sky doesn't have her best interests at heart. Winter says she loves Angelina, then turns her around in the chair and helps her drink her water again. Oh, I get it, there's something in there that makes Angelina just stare off into space and not talk. Hey, anything that keeps any of that crew off the stick is okay in my book!
Time for our next match...
Samoa Joe vs Murphy
The Pope's music hits before the match and he comes out to the announce booth to join Mike Tenay and Taz. Murphy nails Joe from behind and beats him down, but he just manages to piss Joe off. Joe kills him with a hard clothesline, rams knees into Murphy's head, and catches the choke sleeper for the tapout win.
Winner: Samoe Joe
Joe immediately leaves the ring and comes after Pope, who heads right for the back.
The Intrusive Cameraman is following Ken Anderson around as he finds another note at the coffee station. It says that tonight, they should finish what they started. Anderson turns around and yells at Sting to come out wherever he is because he doesn't like love notes.
Time for what passes for a championship match!
Knockouts Tag Team Title Match: Sarita & Rosita vs Angelina Love & Velvet Sky
Angelina is still comatose. Sarita nails Velvet from behind and goes for a springboard crossbody, but Velvet moves and hits a dropkick. Rosita tags in, so Velvet hits an inverted atomic drop and a running bulldog. Velvet with a pair of knee smashes and a running clothesline and then goes for the tag, but Angelina just stares off into space so Velvet lets Rosita go and tries to wake Angelina up. Winter comes out and yells to Angelina, then makes the “break in half” motion and Angelina snaps Velvet's neck over the top ropes and pummels her in the ring. Winter motions for Angelina to come to her, which she does as Rosita covers Velvet for the win.
Winners: Sarita & Rosita
Velvet seems totally shocked at what just happened.
We go backstage again as Ken Anderson is still marauding around looking for Sting, and now has a pipe in hand. He finds Eric Young and Orlando Jordan backstage, and Jordan says he'd like to talk to Anderson about this whole asshole thin. Anderson no-sells it, mocks his own PPV poster, then walks off again.
After commercial, Anderson is STILL looking for Sting backstage. Hey, here's a genius idea, you try looking in the rafters? Anderson can't seem to find Sting anywhere but a black trenchcoat-clad form sneaks up behind him and beats him down. He tears the trenchcoat off and it's Rob Van Dam, who says it's 4/20 and time for Anderson to get smoked. RVD beats Anderson down, then picks him back up so he can beat him down again. RVD asks if it hurts, and says now he's going to show him hurt, and he puts him in...a headscissors. Anderson is totally motionless, so RVD puts the boots to him some more, then takes Anderson's pipe, wraps it around his throat, and drags him around the floor with it. RVD finally releases, says “see you later, asshole!” and walks off.
While Anderson's recovering from getting his ass kicked, we go to a video package detailing the history between Ken Anderson, Rob Van Dam, and Sting, and then we take a look back at what we just saw with RVD beating up Ken Anderson.
Back out to the Impact Zone as TNA World Champion Sting makes his way out to the ring. Sting says he's having a really good night, and asks Rob Van Dam to come join him out in the ring. RVD comes out to join him, and Sting says the reason he came back to TNA to stop Hogan and Bischoff, but he got distracted with RVD and Anderson, and says they've never gotten along. RVD says that's because he debuted by beating Sting and then took about a thousand baseball bat shots. Sting says it was a mistake and he apologizes, then asks RVD to apologize for using him as a pawn in his game with Anderson. RVD says he respects Sting for being World Champion even though he never lost that title, and Sting probably doesn't remember when he was working undercard matches while Sting was main eventing. He's the Whole F'n Show, and come Lockdown, Sting's going to find out what he's dealing with.
Hogan's music hits, and he comes back out with Bischoff and says he's starting to dig RVD's new attitude. It makes him want to do something crazy, so he decided why wait until Lockdown when he can set up RVD vs Sting tonight? The music plays, so I guess he's done talking.
Madison Rayne and Tara are backstage arguing, and Madison tells Tara that she only has a job here because she got her in and asks if she wants to go back to scrubbing toilets. Tara says she's not comfortable with this, and Madison tells her to get on the bike and go.
Anderson is back to walking around backstage and knocks a Sting poster off the wall with his pipe, then goes over to a Hulk Hogan poster and stares at it intently.
Back to the ring...
Robbie E & Generation Me vs Brian Kendrick, Chris Sabin & Suicide
Robbie and Sabin start off and do flippy stuff, Robbie takes Sabin down with a shoulderblock and Sabin comes back with armdrags and tags in Suicide. Sabin whips Robbie into a slam/elbowdrop combo for 2. Daniels with a running clothesline in the corner, but Max Buck grabs Suicide from the outside and Robbie slams him backward for 2. Max tags in and unloads with right hands and a standing dropkick, then orders Jeremy to go up top and hit a double axhandle. Max goes after Suicide but gets bulldogged into the second turnbuckle and Kendrick tags in and wipes everyone out with dropkicks. Max tries a rollup but Kendrick kicks out at 1 and hits a leaping enziguiri and dropkick for 2. Sabin and Suicide dive onto Jeremy and Robbie on the floor as Kendrick goes after Max but Jeremy comes in with a spinning enziguiri and then goes up top, but Max crotches him on the top rope and yells at him before hitting a top rope DDT on his own brother, then just stands there while Kendrick crawls over and pins Jeremy.
Winners: Brian Kendrick, Chris Sabin & Suicide
Max takes his Generation Me armband off and THROWS IT AT HIS BROTHER!
We go back to Hogan's office as he's chewing Rob Terry, Gunner & Murphy out. He tells Gunner to slap the other two and get them out of his office. They leave, and Anderson walks in, drops his pipe, and says he's tired of getting beaten up every week. He wants a favor and begs Hogan to be the referee tonight between Sting and RVD. Hogan asks what he gets out of it, and Anderson says his undying support. Hogan shakes his hand and says he's been waiting for this for a long time, and tells Anderson to take that pipe with him for the main event. Anderson leaves and Hogan smiles and does his evil cackle.
We go out to the parking lot and...wait, what's this? Mickie James is laying on the ground and Tara and Madison are speeding away on the motorcycle!
We go to commercial, and when we comes back the paramedics are attending to Mickie.
Well, not much to see there, so let's go back to the ring...
Lumberjack Match: Bully Ray vs Christopher Daniels
The lumberjacks are basically the other members of both groups. Ray takes Daniels to the corner and beats him down, but Daniels comes out with armdrags and hits a running forearm to send Ray to the outside on the Immortal side. Ray goes back in where Daniels unloads on Ray but gets dumped to the floor, again on the Immortal side. Immortal beats him down until Fortune chases him off, and Daniels gets back in and Ray unloads on him with hard chops. Ray slaps him around and Daniels tries to fight back, but Ray runs him over with a clothesline then just stands over Daniels, drilling him with punches. Ray gets his chain but Daniels starts fighting back and hits a running forearm and a leaping enziguiri for 2. Daniels with a Frankensteiner and a running forearm in the corner but Ray wipes him out with another clothesline. Ray misses a splash and Daniels gets an STO and then hits the BME and goes for the cover, but Flair pulls Jackson James out to the floor before he can count 3. Ray goes to the floor as Immortal and Fortune fight it out and Daniels oges after him, but Hogan is out and punches Daniels in the head with the chain. Jackson James is back in and Ray covers Daniels for the win.
Winner: Bully Ray
We go to commercial, and then we come back to Jeff Jarrett in the cage talking about Angle violating the restraining order and getting hauled off in cuffs like a common street thug. He wonders if this is part of his master plan to not have to step into the cage at Lockdown and face Jarrett like a man. Jarrett's been around the business for a long time and seen a lot of gutless acts, but this takes the cake. But this could be a huge blessing in disguise, because if this had happened 10 days ago and he had beaten Angle within an inch of his life again, the law would have come and arrested him, but now when Angle gets out of prison they can go forward like men. He and Karen have decided not to let the kids visit him in prison because they don't want to expose him to that. Karen has some words and Jarrett says to introduce her, but Kurt's music hits instead and Angle rappells down from the ceiling. Angle tears his shirt off and goes after Jarrett, but Jeff throws a cameraman in the way and climb out of the cage and runs to the back.
Sting and RVD are backstage, and they're...WALKING! And Ken Anderson's going to be their referee, next!
Also backstage now is Kurt Angle, who says that he's been in touch with the Network, and they have added a special stipulation to their Lockdown match.
It's main event time!
Rob Van Dam vs Sting, special referee Ken Anderson
They stall a bunch and then RVD catches Sting with a back elbow and springboard jumpkick, then top rope thrust kick and Rolling Thunder for 2. RVD goes after Sting in the corner, but missed the backflip shoulderblock and hit the post. Sting whips RVD to the corner and hits the Stinger Splash for 2. Sting hits a Scorpion Deathdrop, but Anderson suddenly hits the Mic Check on Sting. RVD comes to and hits the Five Star Frog Splash for the win.
Winner: Rob Van Dam
RVD does his pointing thing at Anderson, then turns his back and Anderson grabs the title belt and knocks RVD out with it. He crouches over RVD and yells that it's his title, and then Murphy and Rob Terry come out applauding and Anderson invites them into the ring. Terry and Murphy elevate Anderson on their shoulders and Hogan comes out to applaud the whole scene. They set Anderson down and he lays both of them out with the Mic Check and then mocks Hogan, who is seething at the top of the ramp. The last thing we see is Hogan turn around and repatedly call Anderson a son of a bitch on his way to the back.
Steve Austin Says He Could Wrestle Full Time Posted by Dave Mitchell on 04/07/2011 at 04:06 PM
In an interview with Comcast's XfinityTV to promote the new season of Tough Enough, WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin dropped a very newsworthy quote - saying his body is in good enough shape that he could actually get back in the ring and wrestle a full-time schedule for about two more years. You can read the full interview here.
Here are some highlights of what Austin said about:
Nexus Leader CM Punk: " I really like C.M. Punk. I think he’s one of the top workers in the ring. I love his promos. I love his style. There’s no smoke and mirrors. I like the straight-edge lifestyle stuff he does. You want to start pairing that against the beer-guzzling “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, I think you’d have an interesting feud to say the least. He would push me to the limits, I would teach that kid a thing or two, and there would be some wonderful promos going back and forth. I like him a lot.
How Physical He Got While Shooting Tough Enough: "One of the kids was pretty mechanically inclined, so I got in there with him…and shoot, I guess that means I haven’t been in the ring in seven or eight years…but I took a few bumps from him, gave him a few bumps, it was a lot of fun. I think if we do it again, I think I’ll be even more active and get in the ring a lot more."
A Possible Return to the Ring: " I could still, you know if I was in a bad situation, I could still get two years out of my carcass on a full-time basis." He then added, " But I’m happy where I’m at. And in ten or twenty years I still want to be doing the things I’m doing with my hunting and fishing. I want to continue to do that in a pain-free fashion. And right now I’m living a pretty pain-free lifestyle."
There is backstage heat on both John Morrison and Melina, reports Pro Wrestling Torch. It centers around the Six-Person Mixed Tag Team Match at Wrestlemania XXVII, which saw Morrison repeatedly brush partner Trish Stratus off.
During their post-match celebration, Stratus hugged Snooki and went to hug Morrison, but he had already turned his back on her. Morrison then led Snooki to the corner of the ring and used the Jersey Shore star as a shield, to guard himself from Stratus.
The backstory behind Morrison's awkward body language is that either he or Melina, his girlfriend, felt Stratus took her spot in the Six-Person Mixed Tag Team Match at Wrestlemania XXVII. The backstage belief is that he either holds Stratus in contempt for taking Melina's spot on the card, or had to portray himself as such so that she would believe he was anything but rude to her.
Behind the scenes, Morrison rejected various ideas Stratus had for their match at WrestleMania XXVII, and was said to be very difficult to work with. His outright refusal to comply with any of her suggestions reportedly hurt her feelings. Word quickly spread amongst the locker room, garnering heat.
Many feel Morrison's unprofessional behavior will set back his standing in WWE since Stratus is highly regarded amongst company personnel.
While Morrison is considered a nice guy, he's not greatly respected amongst his peers. This dates back several years due to his real-life relationship with Melina. Particularly, he lost a lot of respect for allowing Melina to engage in a sexual relationship with former WWE talent Dave Bautista (a/k/a Batista) while the two were dating. The former WWE Champion made no qualms of being intimately involved with Melina in his 2007 autobiography, Batista Unleashed. He wrote:
"My wife thought I was sleeping with Melina right off the bat, while we were still married. It wasn't true, but it did make me feel guilty about being friends with her.
"Since then, as I've said, Melina and I have gotten closer and our relationship has become physical. That's caused a bit of controversy, but I don't give a shit. She's my friend, and I love her very much."
Former WWE stars Paul London and Brian Kendrick alleged numerous behind the scenes stories involving Melina and Morrison in their 2010 "shoot" interview, Brian Kendrick & Paul London's Excellent Adventure. London stated that Morrison is 'spineless' because he repeatedly permitted Melina to engage in sexual activity with outside partners while the two were dating. He added that Morrison would accompany Melina on dates with her partner of choice. Kendrick also claimed that he himself had been intimate with Melina.
- WWE Tough Enough contestant Jeremiah Riggs, the MMA fighter, actually met with Terry Taylor and TNA before about coming in. They were interested in him because he appeared on VH1's Daisy of Love and had some wrestling experience. Riggs began training with Dutch Mantel but decided to focus on his MMA career before trying out for Tough Enough.
Despite the fact that their WrestleMania 27 match was billed as "no holds barred" and anything goes, WWE has announced on its corporate website that both The Undertaker and Triple H have been fined for hitting each other in the head with steel chairs. The announcement reads:
"Superstars Fined for Chair Shot
Pursuant to WWE's Concussion policy, the stunt of using a folded metal chair shot to the head is prohibited. Triple H and The Undertaker have both been fined for violating this policy at WrestleMania XXVII. WWE penalizes through fine and/or suspension for violation of this policy, which is unchanged and still in effect."
Granted, this is a storyline fine, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense considering the stipulation of their match.
With this policy in place - WWE can expect to collect a ton of money from their talent following the upcoming "Extreme Rules" pay-per-view.
- Sin Cara made his WWE TV debut on tonight's RAW. After WWE United States Champion Sheamus defeated Daniel Bryan, he attacked Bryan until Cara's music hit and he appeared on the stage. Cara took his coat off, rushed the ring and proceeded to take Sheamus out. Cara leaped from the top turnbuckle to the floor and landed on Sheamus before running back tot he ramp and posing for the fans.
- As seen on RAW last night, The Miz said he suffered a concussion in the WrestleMania 27 match against John Cena when Cena tackled him from the fan barrier to the floor. Sources indicate that The Miz's concussion is legit.
- It looks as if The Rock will be returning to wrestle in a WWE ring against John Cena after tonight's RAW.
The Rock accepted Cena's challenge for a match but wants it at WrestleMania 28 in 2012 from Miami, Florida.
The Rock extended his hand to Cena and the two shook on the match before taking a beatdown from The Corre. Cena and Rock ended up coming back and fighting the group off.
WWE confirmed that the match will take place at the end of tonight's broadcast. This is the first time that a WrestleMania main event has been confirmed one year in advance. Obviously things can happen between now and then that would stop the match.
- WWE has offered Dragon Gate USA star Jon Moxley a developmental deal. Moxley was signed to DGUSA but they are releasing him with full blessings so he can sign with WWE. He finished with DGUSA over the weekend and will finish with EVOLVE on April 19th in New York City.
ATLANTA – With the explosive events of WrestleMania XXVII still fresh in the minds of theWWE Universe, two of the most popular Superstars in history just lit a fuse that promises to burn bright, clear into 2012.
The Rock accepted John Cena’s challenge to compete at WrestleMania XXVIII Let’s cut right to the chase. In arguably the biggest announcement in the history of WrestleMania, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson accepted a challenge from John Cena to compete at next year’s WrestleMania XXVIII in Miami, Fla.
The dream match-up began brewing weeks ago when The Great One and the Cenation Commander-in-Chief traded verbal barbs. The spoken sparing eventually escalated to physical confrontation until, finally, the animosity culminated at WrestleManiaXXVII. During Cena’s WWE Championship Match against The Miz, the WrestleMania host cost his rival the title when he leveled him with a Rock Bottom.
Now, there’s no one and nothing standing between these two legendary Superstars. When the two finally consented to meet, their agreement was interrupted by The Corre, who ambushed the iconic Superstars. Big mistake. Rock and Cena punished their attackers and demonstrated why, when they meet in The Great One's hometown of Miami, the temperatures are sure to rise in the face of heated rhetoric and hot competition in a match that's guaranteed to go down as one of the most epic battles in WWE history.
United States Champion Sheamus def. Daniel Bryan An international incident came to a head when United States Champion Sheamus refused to relent against Daniel Bryan, even after the Irishman emerged victorious. As The Celtic Warrior threw around his exhausted rival like a wet rag, a masked luchador sprung onto the scene to assist. The internationally-renowned luchador, Sin Cara, leveled Sheamus and saved Bryan before exiting through a roar of approving applause.
John Morrison & Trish Stratus def. Dolph Ziggler & Vickie Guerrero For John Morrison & Trish Stratus, the party still hasn’t ended, even without their WrestleMania partner, Snooki. The Jersey Shore star helped propel her tag team over Dolph Ziggler & Lay-Cool at The Show of Shows.
On Raw, JoMo & Trish teamed up again, this time to battle Ziggler and his business associate, Vickie Guerrero. Despite much hysterics and high-pitched pouting by WWE’s callous cougar, The Shaman of Sexy and the former seven-time Women’s Champion managed to defuse Ziggler and his grenade of a gal pal when Morrison blasted off in Starship Pain.
Alberto Del Rio def. Evan Bourne Alberto Del Rio would probably like to forget his first WrestleMania. Not only did he lose to World Heavyweight Champion Edge, he also watched helplessly as The Rated-R Superstar destroyed one of his precious luxury autos, a six-figure Rolls Royce.
All of that pent up frustration had to let loose at some point. Unfortunately for Evan Bourne, it unleashed inside the ring on Raw. The Mexican Aristocrat crushed the high-flyer to reestablish himself as one of WWE’s fastest-rising and most formidable Superstars.
WWE Champion The Miz confronted “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Really, Miz? Really? After inching out a WrestleMania victory over John Cena, thanks in large part to host Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, The Awesome One must think he’s indestructible. Why else would any sane man interrupt “Stone Cold” Steve Austin?
The Texas Rattlesnake was introducing the 14 men and women competing on his new reality show, Tough Enough, which premieres after tonight’s Raw on USA Network. The Miz took the opportunity to brag about his questionable victory and to challenge “Stone Cold.” Before he could get his hands on The Cleveland Screamer, The Texas Rattlesnake nailed his lackey, Alex Riley, with a Stunner, allowing Miz to scamper from the ring.
Randy Orton & Rey Mysterio def. CM Punk & Cody Rhodes Their respective matches at WrestleMania were intense and astounding in their outcomes. Randy Orton staggered the 71,617 attendees when he overcame CM Punk with a mid-air RKO. For his part, Cody Rhodes shocked the crowd when he wielded Rey Mysterio’s leg brace to conquer his adversary.
Now, time for retribution. The Viper teamed with The Master of the 619 against The Second City Savior and his partner, the former “Dashing” one. Although Punk & Rhodes offered an impressive effort, their opponents proved seamless in their approach. Mysterio nailed Rhodes with a 619 and sent him into the waiting – and always treacherous – arms of Orton, who leveled him with an RKO for the win.
Jerry “The King” Lawler def. Jack Swagger by Disqualification History may show that Michael Cole defeated Jerry “The King” Lawler at WrestleMania XXVII, but the win comes with a huge asterisk. After Lawler forced his fiendish foe to tap out, the anonymous Raw GM overruled the decision and awarded Cole the win due to alleged interference by special guest referee “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
In the wake of the controversial win, Cole insisted he can now lay claim to the title “Mr. WrestleMania.” He even challenged the WWE Hall of Famer to a rematch. Except, the rematch was against Cole’s trainer, Jack Swagger, who battled Lawler last Monday. Unfortunately for King, a distraction from his “rat bastard” rival allowed The All-American American the opening he needed to defeat Lawler with an ankle lock. When Swagger refused to relinquish the hold, however, the referee reversed his decision and awarded the Raw announcer the win.
Triple H praised The Undertaker Men are only as well-regarded as the respect they show others. In Triple H, the WWE Universe witnessed precisely why his fellow Superstars both fear and admire the man. One night after coming up just short in his quest to end The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak, The King of Kings came to praise his opponent – not bury him. He told the audience his respect for The Deadman had only deepened as the streak extends to 19-0, despite the fact that, after his victory, The Last Outlaw needed to be carried off on a gurney.
- There are no major injuries coming out of WrestleMania last night. However, the WWE crews are worn out from the past week in Atlanta and most are looking forward to wrapping up this week's RAW and SmackDown TV tapings.
