SmackDown results: From dreamer to something meaner By: Michael Burdick May 27, 2011 Tags: SmackDown: May 27, 2011 Spokane, WA – Five days after Randy Orton crushed Christian’s dream of regaining the World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Over the Limit, Sheamus battled to the front of the pack, capturing an opportunity at WWE’s Apex Predator’s World Title.
Sheamus became the No. 1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title (WATCH | PHOTOS) Christian, Mark Henry and Sheamus clashed in a Triple Threat Match for the right to face Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship. But, when Henry opted to shove the observing Orton at ringside, The Viper jumped into the squared circle and delivered a devastating RKO to The World’s Strongest Man. In doing so, he inadvertently distracted the referee, preventing Christian from getting the three-count on Sheamus. Before Captain Charisma could regroup, the reinvigorated Celtic Warrior leveled him with a big boot, covering him for the huge victory.
As a result of the whirlwind battle, Orton will put his title on the line against two-time former WWE Champion Sheamus next week on SmackDown.
Alicia Fox & Tamina def. A.J. & Kaitlyn (WATCH | PHOTOS) With Natalya in their corner, WWE NXT alumni A.J. and Kaitlyn reunited in Divas tag team action. Despite a tough effort by the battling beauties, “A-Fox” ultimately triumphed over Kaitlyn – utilizing a high-octane scissor kick made famous by WWE Legend and SmackDown color commentator, Booker T.
Booker T poked fun at Michael Cole (WATCH | PHOTOS) Four days after Michael Cole made a grand apology on Monday Night Raw for his despicable actions in recent months, Booker T called him into the ring. The former World Champion took great pleasure ridiculing the uncharacteristically humble announcer, displaying a picture of Cole kissing Jerry Lawler’s barbecue sauce covered feet at WWE Over the Limit and leading the WWE Universe in a “kiss my feet” chant.
Kane def. The Great Khali (WATCH | PHOTOS) Already in a “nasty” mood over losing the WWE Tag Team Titles, and the injuries sustained by his tag team partner Big Show four days earlier on Monday Night Raw, The Big Red Monster overcame The Great Khali in an all-out “Monster's Brawl,” unleashing a vicious attack on his gigantic foe from the top rope.
Afterward, Jinder Mahal emerged, admonishing the defeated Khali in Punjabi before once again slapping him. When Mahal and Ranjin Singh got in each others’ faces, Khali stepped in. Then, without warning, Khali put the Vise Grip on his own brother. After leaving Singh completely incapacitated, Khali shocked the WWE Universe by leaving the ring with Mahal. Ezekiel Jackson def. Heath Slater by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) After Jackson put Heath Slater in the painful backbreaker, Wade Barrett and Justin Gabriel stormed down to ringside to save him, drawing the disqualification. But, “The Personification of Domination” held his ground in a powerful fashion, taking out all three of his former Corre cohorts.
Daniel Bryan def. Cody Rhodes (WATCH | PHOTOS) Countering the Cross Rhodes at the last second, Daniel Bryan forced Cody Rhodes to tap-out to the Lebell Lock. Moments after the bell, Bryan was blind-sided by his bitter foe. After punishing his wartorn target with a massive assault that culminated in the Cross Rhodes, Rhodes added insult to injury by putting a paper bag on the fallen Superstar’s head.
Sin Cara def. Chavo Guerrero (WATCH | PHOTOS) Following his loss to Sin Cara at WWE Over the Limit five days ago, Chavo Guerrero demanded a rematch. Despite another strong effort by the self-proclaimed “Mexican Warrior,” his masked adversary once again triumphed, using his extreme athleticism to drive Chavo’s head to the canvas with incredible force.
SmackDown GM Theodore Long made a Triple Threat No. 1 Contender’s Match (PHOTOS) After their epic championship showdown at WWE Over the Limit, Christian congratulated Randy Orton on his victory and asked him for another rematch. When Sheamus and Mark Henry took issue, Teddy Long came forth to lay down the law. Listening to the WWE Universe – who insisted in one voice that Christian still deserved a title opportunity – the SmackDown GM declared that the three challengers would battle it out in a Triple Threat main event to see who would face The Viper.
- According to TNA, Abyss became the second TNA star in history to be their Grand Slam Champion when he won the X Division Title on last week's show. The only other man to hold the TNA World, Tag Team, X Division and Television Titles is AJ Styles.

- Kevin Nash spoke with The Glaswegian newspaper in the UK to promote an independent show he's doing there. Regarding WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre, Nash said:
"Drew McIntyre almost kicked my liver out of my body at the Royal Rumble. He's got good size, good presence. I think that in Drew McIntyre, Wade Barrett and Sheamus, you have got three really good UK guys in the WWE. But I think McIntyre has a little bit more quickness than the other two guys. He's a good talent."
- In a new interview with John Pollock of The Fight Network, Kevin Nash says he hopes to face Big Show at this year's WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view and talks about almost doing something with Show at the WrestleMania 27 pay-per-view last month. Nash notes that it wouldn't have been fair to take the WrestleMania spot of another WWE Superstar who had been waiting on their first WrestleMania.
Regarding his WWE return at the Royal Rumble earlier this year, Nash said those few moments were better than anything that happened to him during his five year stint with TNA.
Nash also talks about how Shawn Michaels (who he thinks won't ever return), other veterans and himself may get involved with WWE's developmental process that Triple H is currently heading up. You can see the video below:

Byron says that he is infatuated with taking control of his career and winning NXT all by himself. Byron says that he is emancipating himself from Yoshi Tatsu and he is declaring his independence.

We take a look at the situation between Darren Young, Hornswoggle, Titus O’Neil, and Chavo Guerrero.
Matt Striker is with Chavo Guerrero and Darren Young. Matt asks Darren why he is choosing this way to make an impact. Darren says that it isn’t deplorable, it is downright genius. Two weeks ago, he did the impossible and made it possible when he beat Titus O’Neill twice.

As noted earlier here on the website, WWE Diva Awesome "Kharma" Kong will be sidelined for the remainder of the year.
In an update on this, the reason Kharma is will be off TV is because she is indeed pregnant. As a result, she will not be in active competition for the duration of her pregnancy. She may also miss additional time after the pregnancy for obvious reasons.

F4WOnline.com reports that the angle was scripted to write her off television for the time being. She is expected to be sidelined for over nine months.
The reason for her removal from television has not been disclosed.
WWE Tough Enough Report - May 23rd, 2011 Posted by Steve Carrier on 05/23/2011 at 06:51 PM
We're back at the house, and Christina is arriving on crutches. Trish is helping her get back upstairs. AJ apologizes to Christina, stating that it was his fault that she got hurt. Christina says it's fine and not to worry about it.
It's a new day of Tough Enough, and the guys are working in the ring while Christina watches. This week, they will be working on charisma. Bill shouts a set of moves that the contestants will be doing repeatedly. AJ and Luke go for a drop toe hold at the same time, which generates a laugh from Austin and some criticism from Bill. Those two get out of the ring, and Andy and Jeremiah are working together. Jeremiah slips up but it's nothing major. Andy and Luke were working together next, and Bill says the pairing of those two was great.
The session is over and Bill tells everyone to beat it.
And we're back. It's time for today's life lesson, which, as stated before, is all about charisma. Bill tells them why it's important, and then introduces them to James Roday (he stars in that USA show "Psych"). So the Life Lesson will have each of the contestants being the tour guide for a tour bus going through Hollywood. AJ is about as interesting as a 2x4. Luke cuts some cheesy jokes, which I found funny, but no one else seemed too. Christina isn't that... good. Andy is up next, and Bill doesn't seem to impressed. Finally, Jeremiah is up. Jeremiah did very well, and I think he was the only person that impressed Bill. The tour is over now, and Bill asks James how everything went. James says at the end of the day, he thinks that he'll remember Jeremiah's tour presentation the most.
Up next... THE MOST ELECTRIFYING MAN IN SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT IS ON TOUGH ENOUGH! Stay tuned...
We're back at the training area, and Stone Cold introduces them to The Rock. Rock has them get in the ring, where they will be working with Rocky himself. Just a couple lock ups and arm drags, the usual stuff. He's worked with Andy, Luke, Jeremiah, and AJ without a problem, and Christina can't work because of her ankle. The Rock tells them all that they did fine.
Now (Rock is still here) each of the contestants will be cutting a promo against Big Bill himself. Jeremiah cuts a twinkie joke, then calls himself "Daddy Rigs". It wasn't too bad, and they all confer amongst each other and they said it was fine. Luke is at it now, and his promo is a little more on the serious side. The judges say it was a little off, but nothing too bad. Christina is at it now. Bill doesn't look very impressed. It's like the words were all there, but there didn't seem to be any emotion. The Rock says she needed to Bring It (which made me smile), and he's not sure if she did that. Not the most impressive.
Back, and now it's Andy's turn to cut a promo on Bill. Andy cuts a serious promo, very well worded, with an great ending line: "You're just like the other 4 out there... Your only claim to fame is just going to be a loss to me." I was kind of surprised when they said they weren't very impressed with Andy. Now, we're finally up for Tumbleweed himself, AJ. AJ seemed to be pretty into his promo, and I think all the judges were very impressed by it.
Now The Rock is gonna cut a promo on the group as a whole. He's bringing it for sure, he tells them to shut their mouths before he has to Layeth The Smackdown on all their candy asses! He threw in a couple extra words, and as always it was a great promo. I don't think I've ever heard a bad promo from The Rock. He says AJ did the best and congratulates him. SCSA says it's time for him, Trish, and Bill (Booker is doing Smackdown apparently) to confer and decide who's at the bottom.
Commercial Break... Elimination coming soon?
Back, and Austin, Bill, and Trish are discussing the contestants. AJ is still getting heat for his ring work. Christina doesn't seem to have anyone's favor really, so she's in the danger zone. Jeremiah is praised for his mic work, but Bill calls him dangerous in the ring. Andy hasn't impressed anyone the week, and he's not happy about it. The bottom three? AJ, Christina, Andy.
Back at the house, Luke and Jeremiah are celebrating, but Andy is PISSED. He doesn't think he belongs in the bottom three, and he says he's been busting his ass since day one... And then he says that he'll make sure Stone Cold knows that.
Commercial Break: Elimination is NEXT!
We're back, and the bottom three are in the ring. Stone Cold enters, and he talks to Andy first. He says he doesn't know much about Andy, and Andy tells him that he's hard working, just like his dad who dug ditches. Andy says he's busting his ass doing everything he can. Stone Cold says his dad should have hit him in the head with that shovel maybe working hard would have rubbed off on him. Andy is slowly getting mad, and Stone Cold mocks him saying "AM I PISSIN' YA OFF?!". Then he moves on to Christina. He's talking to her about her injury, and tells her that she got a break this week, because it was Charisma week, and she did nothing impressive. He then tells her that he doesn't think she wants this bad enough. He moves over to AJ, and asks if he really wants this, even more then Andy? AJ says damn right I do. Andy says that's BS, and tells him he doesn't even believe him when he's wrestling. Stone Cold calls Andy silent rage, and then starts singing Silent Night, except with Rage. He's a funny, funny man. He moves on to Andy again, and Andy tells him he's got the wrong person in the bottom three. Stone Cold starts criticizing him, and Andy still looks fairly mad. Austin tells Andy to stop being so damn passive, and why he should send Christina home instead of him. He says she's just not as talented as him. Stone Cold then drops a bombshell that 2 of them are going home tonight. Stone Cold steps towards Christina, and asks if she's got any passion in her heart. She nods yes, and he says he's not buying it. He takes her belt. Christina says she thinks it's a mistake, and he says "I don't make mistakes." Now it's down to Andy and AJ. He asks Andy if he's giving it all he's got. He says no sir. Austin asks again, and he yells no sir. Stone Cold: WHAT?! Andy: NO SIR!!! Stone Cold: WHAT?!?!?!?!?! Andy: YES SIR!!!!!!!! Stone Cold finally says to Andy that he better stop holding back and yells at AJ that he's going home just like Christina, then tells Andy he better pick up the damn slack.

Raw results: Ref and tumble By: Greg Adkins May 23, 2011 Tags: Raw: May 23, 2011 PORTLAND, Ore. – One night after WWE Over the Limit, several Superstars stepped over the line. It was a night that witnessed an “accidental” run down, a shocking beatdown and one of the most bizarre meltdowns in WWE history.
WWE Champion John Cena & Rey Mysterio def. CM Punk & R-Truth (WATCH | PHOTOS) WWE Champion John Cena was clearly pained a night after suffering one of the worst pummelings of his career. Fresh off an “I Quit” Match against The Miz at WWE Over the Limit, The Champ was tapped to join Rey Mysterio in a tag team match against CM Punk & R-Truth with Bret Hart acting as special guest referee.
Despite a hard-charging effort by both Truth and his pious partner, Cena refused to let his battered and bruised body lie still. The Champ kicked out of sure pins and fought back with dogged determination. But even Cena’s steel-belted body has its limits. It would be up to WWE’s Littlest Big Man to carry the day for his team – a tall order he would fill with Herculian effort.
Rey capitalized on his elusive build and high-flying frame to hobble both Truth & Punk within seconds of one another. He then nailed Punk with a 619, but Hart wasn’t about to let him have all the fun. The WWE Hall of Famer, fed up with Punk’s in-ring antics, belted The Second City Savior across the jaw and locked him in the Sharpshooter, allowing Rey to pin his shoulders for the victory.
U.S. Champion Kofi Kingston def. Drew McIntyre (WATCH | PHOTOS | PHOTOS OF KOFI'S NEW GEAR) Kofi Kingston never looked so good. The Dreadlock Dynamo worked through a painful leg injury he suffered early in the match and landed a litany of jaw-dropping jumps and a series of shut-your-mouth strikes in his victorious match against Drew McIntyre. There was something more, though. Kofi sported yellow, spider-themed trunks and kickpads created by six-year old Luke M. of Alberta, Canada, who won the WWE Kids Magazine's first-ever “Draw a Superstar’s Gear” contest. Awesome job, Luke!
Eight-Diva Tag Team Match ended in a No Contest (WATCH | PHOTOS) Before the Eight-Diva Tag Team Match could conclude, Kharma underwent the Charlie Sheen of meltdowns. As Kelly Kelly, Eve, Beth Phoenix & Gail Kim clashed with The Bella Twins, Maryse & Melina, Kharma’s entrance music dropped, freezing her fellow Divas in fear.
As the braided behemoth slid into the ring, her eight fellow Divas lined up on the opposite side of the canvas. Rather than chaos, however, there was collapse. Kharma unexpectedly dropped to her knees and began balling uncontrollably.
The Miz fired his assistant, Alex Riley, who then attacked his former boss (WATCH | PHOTOS) And you think you’ve got a bad boss? After all Alex Riley’s done for The Miz, the guy deserves a raise. Instead, he received nothing but contempt in the wake of his boss’ loss to WWE Champion John Cena at WWE Over the Limit. The Cleveland Screamer angrily placed the blame for his loss at Riley’s feet, insulting him and asking the anonymous Raw GM for another title match.
When he was denied, Miz took his frustration out on Riley, firing him with extreme prejudice. A-Ry could only take so much unwarranted grief until, finally, he snapped. After Miz canned him, Riley unleashed weeks of pent-up rage against his former boss, attacking him and leaving him shamed in the ring. Disgruntled? Ya' think?
Michael Cole apologized (WATCH) With rat tail tucked squarely between his legs, Michael Cole skulked down the entrance ramp to the announce table. He offered his humble apologies to his broadcast colleagues, including Jerry Lawler, just one night after losing to the WWE Hall of Famer in a Kiss My Foot Match at WWE Over the Limit. He also promised a more professional attitude and an end to the Cole Mine.
Jack Swagger def. Evan Bourne (WATCH | PHOTOS) Nobody likes a sore winner, and Evan Bourne is no exception. "Air" Bourne faced off against Jack Swagger and proved he wasn’t about to let a little height advantage deter him. He went straight at The All-American American, nailing a bull’s-eye onto Swagger’s midsection. Michael Cole’s former trainer, however, would not be denied. After winning, The All-American American took a condescending victory lap, prompting Bourne to knock his egotistical opponent out of the ring.
Ricardo Rodriguez drove one of Alberto Del Rio’s cars into Big Show (WATCH) After watching Big Show & Kane lose their WWE Tag Team Titles to David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty, Alberto Del Rio just couldn’t help himself. The Mexican Aristocrat had to rub the loss in their faces. His attitude - and a slap - prompted Big Show to give chase, but when The World’s Largest Athlete rounded a corner in the parking lot, Del Rio’s personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez “accidentally” ran over his leg with one of his boss’ luxury autos.
David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty def. WWE Tag Team Champions Big Show & Kane (WATCH | PHOTOS) Look out below! WWE’s towering terrors have fallen. Thanks to shifty interference by New Nexus leader CM Punk, WWE Tag Team Champions Big Show & Kane dropped the titles to David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty.
Their title reign kicks off just one night after Punk & Mason Ryan failed to capture the titles themselves at WWE Over the Limit. Prior to that bout, Big Show & Kane staged a preemptive strike on the New Nexus, leveling Otunga and McGillicutty in the locker room. In retaliation, Ryan distracted the referee while The Second City Savior, who had been on commentary, kicked Big Show in the back of the head to fell the two redwoods and help his disciples capture the prestigious titles.
Main event match arranged with Bret Hart as special referee (PHOTOS) R-Truth demonstrated once again that the voices in his head have cranked up the volume. Apparently, though, they’re still screaming the same tune. The conspiracy nut continues to blame, well, just about everybody but himself for him not receiving a WWE Title opportunity.
This week, he trained his crosshairs on two of WWE’s most beloved Superstars, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart and John Cena.
The Excellence of Execution explained that he showed up during last night’s Kiss My Foot Match at WWE Over the Limit to make sure Michael Cole experienced “the agony of de-feet.” Truth rudely interrupted the WWE Hall of Famer to spout off about all the “little Jimmys” in the crowd and refusing to kow-tow to them anymore.
The Superstar then took a left turn into Rage Town when WWE Champion John Cena tried to talk sense into his old friend. When Truth finally finished spitting about how he never liked The Champ, Raw’s anonymous General Manager arranged the night’s main event, a tag team bout pitting Cena & Rey Mysterio against Truth & CM Punk with Hart acting as special guest referee.

Hulk Hogan zwaar geschokt door dood Macho Man (video)
Gepost op 22 mei 2011, 10u49
Wie wel eens naar het Amerikaanse worstelen kijkt, kent ongetwijfeld Randy Savage of zijn alter ego Macho Man. Vrijdagavond kwam hij echter om bij een verkeersongeval in Florida.
Toen de voormalige worstelaar vrijdagavond met zijn vrouw onderweg was, verloor hij de controle over het stuur en de auto botste frontaal met een boom. Zijn vrouw kwam er vanaf met enkele lichte verwondingen, maar de 58-jarige Savage overleed in het ziekenhuis. Volgens zijn broer zou een hartaanval de reden geweest zijn waarom hij van de baan afweek.
Ondertussen regent het geschokte reacties vanuit het wereldje. Hulk Hogan, die heel wat duels met Macho Man uitvocht, was geschokt. De twee hadden tien jaar niet met elkaar gesproken en leefden op voet van oorlog, maar recent was het contact terug hersteld: "Ik voel me er verschrikkelijk over dat we elkaar tien jaar niet gesproken hebben. Hij had zo veel leven in zich, ik bid dat hij nu op een betere plaats is. We zullen hem ontzettend missen."
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, de worstelaar die de overstap naar het witte doek maakte, liet via Twitter weten dat Randy Savage één van zijn inspiratiebronnen was en een persoonlijke held. Maar zelfs Macho Man is sterfelijk… (KA)
Bekijk hier één van de legendarische gevechten tussen Hulk Hogan en Macho Man:
