Ex-WWE star goes on major John Cena rant Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 07/16/2011 at 07:22 PM
Chavo Guerrero took John Cena's wrestling ability to task today on Twitter after the master of the Five Knuckle Shuffle declared earlier in the day that people will talk about his match with CM Punk tomorrow at Money in the Bank for years to come. He challenges the WWE Champion to think outside the box and not do the "BS lazy comeback" he does in "every match" because the fans deserve better. The third generation grappler also took a parting shot at The Miz during his near half-hour diatribe.
"Ok, don't 'Fin' say that people will talk about this for years if you're going to let Punk do all the work and not deliver at the PPV, Cena. I am tired and I know fans are tired of WWE Superstars talking big and not delivering. We don't want to see someone just in a fight. And frankly no one believes it anymore. If Miz can kick your ass then the clerk at the store can kick your ass, so please deliver if you say that..
People will remember this PPV. You know Punk will bring 'it'. I've been in the ring with both of you and Punk has 'it'. Cena you have mic skills yes but if you think people believe your BS lazy comeback that you do exactly the same every match then you are mistaken. Eddie and I taught you different. We never said 'get lazy' and do the damn thing every night. We always said 'think out of the box' and give the fans what they deserve and not rely on the 'machine' to 'get you over'.
I hope this lights a fire under your ass and you deliver this Sunday. Don't just rest on you being over cause you are and that is easy. Challenge yourself and give the fans what they deserve. That's why they boo you. Because they aren't stupid. They know what they pay for and the 'great' promo guy but the shitty 'match' guy that you have become is not what they want. I understand 'longevity' but at the sacrifice of the fans trust is not worth it. Deliver on your fans and deliver on why you got into this business. Eventually the fans that you have gained with from the purple t-shirts will turn on you. Take a lesson from the Hulkster. Give the fans there $ worth and don't become just another 'promo' guy. I know you love this biz and don't get distracted from the McMahon $. Deliver please!! Have enough respect for your fans because without them, you're working at a fast food chain.
Love you man and I support you and hope you see this because I know Punk will and I know he's going to bring it because he's got nothing to lose!"

SmackDown results: Losing cool By: Mitch Passero July 15, 2011 Tags: SmackDown: July 15, 2011 UNCASVILLE, Connecticut – With their Money in the Bank match looming, Christian did his best to get under the skin of World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton all night long. By the end of the main event, The Viper finally snapped.
Kane def. World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton by Disqualification in a Non-Title Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) A night of Christian’s taunting of Randy Orton culminated during the main event between Kane and Orton. When Christian came to ringside, Kane used the distraction to clothesline Orton out of the ring. The momentum also sent Kane careening onto the arena floor. But while Kane smartly climbed back into the ring, Orton decided to pursue Christian, which resulted in him getting doused with water by Christian and counted out of the bout.
That’s when the chaos began.
As a furious Orton chased Christian around and into the ring, The Viper found himself the victim of a vicious 2-on-1 assault at the hands of both Kane and Christian. But when Kane turned his attention to Christian, The Viper blasted Kane with an RKO. Then just seconds after, Christian charged and speared Orton. After pummeling Orton with blows, Christian armed himself with a steel chair. But before Christian could use the chair, Orton kicked Christian in the gut and wrested control of the chair. Then, seething with anger, Orton erupted and unloaded on Kane with multiple, brutal chair shots while Christian looked on.
After the display, can Orton possibly contain his temper and avoid being disqualified and losing his title at Money in the Bank? What surprises does Christian have left in store for Orton? The fate of the World Title will be determined this Sunday. (Preview)
Justin Gabriel def. Heath Slater (WATCH | PHOTOS) Together, Justin Gabriel and Health Slater were three-time WWE Tag Team Champions. And they worked together from the beginning of The Nexus to the end of The Corre. But that’s all in the past, and Slater made that clear with his words before the match against his former ally. But in the end it was Gabriel who reigned supreme in a competitive bout, defeating Slater with an impressive 450 Splash.
Divas Champion Kelly Kelly def. Rosa Mendes (WATCH | PHOTOS) After driving Rosa Mendes' head to the canvas, Kelly Kelly picked up the win. At Money in the Bank, Kelly Kelly puts her title on the line against Brie Bella. (Preview)
Big Show and Mark Henry faced off (WATCH | PHOTOS) With Big Show and Mark Henry prepared to face off, there was potential for chaos … and SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long knew it. If there was any physicality between the two, Long would cancel their Money in the Bank match. As both behemoths traded emotional words, Big Show claimed his actions against Henry as of late have actually done him a favor by lighting a fire within him. Henry’s take was that being stronger and meaner is better than being big. Who will prevail when the two finally collide in the ring at Money in the Bank? (Preview)
Sin Cara def. Sheamus (WATCH | PHOTOS) In their first match ever, Sin Cara stunned Sheamus by countering the Celtic Cross and rolling him up for a pinfall victory. With Sheamus frustrated by the loss, Wade Barrett leapt up from the announce table to gain a measure of retribution for Sheamus smashing him with a steel chair last week. After dropping Sheamus with a Brogue Kick, Barrett finished him off with Wasteland.
Cody Rhodes def. Daniel Bryan (WATCH | PHOTOS) With no love lost between the two, Cody Rhodes and Daniel Bryan slugged it out in an evenly matched bout. While battling in the corner, Rhodes tossed Bryan to the side, causing him to land precariously with the top rope between his legs. Rhodes capitalized on the vulnerable position and dropped Bryan from the ropes with a well-targeted kick to the head, leading to a pinfall victory.
Intercontinental Champion Ezekiel Jackson def. Ted DiBiase (WATCH | PHOTOS) With Cody Rhodes preparing for his match with Bryan, Ted DiBiase was on his own against big Ezekiel Jackson. Despite an impressive effort from DiBiase, he was forced to submit to Jackson’s punishing backbreaker. After the match, Rhodes warned DiBiase about the paper bag implications of losing another match in the future (WATCH).
Christian taunted World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton (PHOTOS) What started with Christian taunting Randy Orton with a picture of him with the World Title (WATCH) escalated as the night progressed. First, he vowed to find out who vandalized Randy Orton’s tour bus (WATCH). Then, he lost a bunch of Orton’s money at the roulette wheel (WATCH). Finally, he offered his thoughts on Orton in That’s What I Am
The following is an excerpt from a CM Punk interview with GQ.com...
GQ: Is that parallel to Austin why you wore a Stone Cold Steve Austin T-shirt when you were delivering that promo?
C.M. Punk: I do a lot of weird little things like that because people talk about it. I don't think it's any secret; I think the biggest match any wrestling company can do right now is C.M. Punk vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin. I've thought that since I was 15. I'm straight edge. I don't drink. I don't do drugs. I don't smoke. And that is the perfect protagonist or antagonist to Stone Cold Steve Austin, depending on how you want to spin it. It writes itself. You would have to try really, really hard to f*** that one up. The idea of being on television is to wear your T-shirt so people see it and maybe buy it. I had gone out previously in the night and wrestled. You throw your T-shirt on the ground, and I don't know what the hell happens to it after that. I came to the back, and I was looking for another T-shirt. I sent somebody to go and get one, and they came back with a XXL. I was like, "I'm going to be swimming in this thing." And it's always creepy when you're wearing wrestling trunks with a shirt because it doesn't look like you're wearing any pants. I had a Stone Cold Steve Austin shirt in my bag, and it fit me. I chuckled to myself and put it on. Am I planting seeds? I don't know. I can't guarantee to anybody that that match is going to happen. Do I want it to happen? Absolutely.

Cabana Discusses MITB Success Because of CM Punk Posted by Steve Carrier on 07/15/2011 at 12:55 PM
- Colt Cabana was interviewed by Alex Marvez of Scripps News this week about WWE, CM Punk and more. Here are some highlights:
The CM Punk situation: "I am more interested as a fan to see what happens. There is so much buzz around this. Punk has caused a stir that hasn't happened in wrestling in a long time. I'm excited to see what goes down and, most importantly, watching my best friend in his last WWE match."
Being happy now without WWE: "I love where my career and life is at. Don't get me wrong: I'd love to be with WWE and working again with CM Punk. That would be amazing. But I've also seen so many guys get fired from WWE and then sit around waiting to get a call to come back that usually doesn't come. Their value drops until they have no following. I can't sit and wait. All the different projects I have make me creatively and monetarily happy."
The Money in the Bank aftermath: "If the buy rate for this show is high, it basically says CM Punk was responsible singlehandedly for making this kind of money. And it will be because of the stuff he said, that people want to see something different and have gotten on the bandwagon. If WWE realizes that maybe it is time for a change, the potential for that is there. Yes, inevitably this will all put a lot of money in McMahon's pocket. But it also puts a lot of power into the hands of CM Punk."
Immortal held a party for Mr. Anderson, who had on a nice camouflage tuxedo by the way. It was general ass kissing all around until the lights went out. Sting appeared in the ring at a poker table and asked Eric Bischoff if he wanted to bet who would walk out with the title tonight.
Sting did his Joker laugh and pointed out that he had “friends” tonight that would make sure Immortal didn’t screw him. Four Doink the Clown look-alikes appeared in the rafters and Sting flipped the table and got out of the ring.
Bobby Roode defeated Samoa Joe and The Pope in a Bound For Glory Series match.
Austin Aries defeated Shannon Moore.
Tara defeated Madison Rayne.
Kurt Angle cut a promo about his No. 1 contender status, and his upcoming TNA Title match at Hardcore Justice. He said he’s going to kick Anderson’s ass whether it is for the championship or not, and he hopes Sting wins so they can finish what they started in some previous match since he has never beaten Sting. He talked about the Main Event Mafia some as well.
Mexican America defeated The British Invasion to become No. 1 contenders to the TNA Tag Titles.
Santino Marella dances his way to the ring as Scott Stanford and Josh Mathews welcome us to the show.
Zack Ryder, "the Self-Proclaimed Internet Champion," makes his way to the ring repping the LI. "Ryder 4 Champ"
Scott cites the last time these two met on Superstars, Santino's Cobra connected to Zack's "lower extremities" taking out his legs with a second one to the face picking up the victory.
Santino Marella vs. Zack Ryder
Act 1 The two lock up in the ring, Zack's power getting the better of Santino. The two make plays to the crowd to see who can get more adolation. Zack attempts an attack, but Santino hits a series of arm drags on Ryder. On the third attempt, Ryder nails a Clotheslne. He then takes Santino into the corner and gets some heat from the audience. Santino's momentary break allows him to knock Ryder from behind, he teases the WWE Universe by setting up for the Cobra. Ryder makes sure that doesn't happen and unsuccessfully pins Marella's shoulders to the mat for a two count! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!
Act 2 Zack nails a nice Hangman's neckbreaker, connecting Santino's neck onto his shoulder. Another failed pin attempt. A "Let's go Ryder" chant starts as Zack pummels Santino into the corner and throws up the LI as he goes for the Broski Boot. His Facewash move fails to connect as Santino flees out of the corner. Marella hits his combo of punches, split, hip toss and running headbutt. He also fails to connect with a pinfall.
Act 3 Santino, oddly enough, goes to the "high rent district" and seems to question his decision by hesitating. He goes for the Diving Headbutt and misses! Ryder then nails the Rough Ryder leg lariat for the 1 - 2 - 3!
Winner: Zack Ryder by pinfall bringing this rivalry to 1-1.
Zack shouts to, "Follow [him] on Facebook! Follow [him] on Twitter!" WWWYKI!

Trent Beretta is already in the ring. Striker & Korpela pump up MitB PPV.
And once again we are greeted by Wade Barrett who is making his second appearance on Superstars in a row. (Another classic example of WWE pushing someone too quickly to the main event picture and then appearing to have less faith in them. Let's hope this is not a regular occurance. I'm willing to guess he's NOT winning the SD! MitB Ladder Match.)
Trent Beretta Vs. Wade Barrett
Act 1 Wade throws an elbow at Beretta, who ducks and gets a few shots in. Barrett covers up and shows Beretta's efforts were in vain as Trent takes to the ropes and is countered with his signature Spinning Side Slam. 1... 2 ... Kickout.
Barrett kicks Trent, who gets wrapped up in the ropes. Barrett connects with a series of knees and then boots Trent out of the ring. Wade meets him outside and slams him into the apron before throwing him back in the ring. Another failed pin attempt and Barrett hits a series of shots to Beretta's face.
Act 2 A few exchanges of punches and kicks end with Trent fighting out of the Pump Handle Slam and nailing an Enzuiguri! He follows it up with an elbow in the corner. Trent flies and connects with a Corkscrew Moonsault. Barrett recovers.
With Trent on the apron, Barrett goes for a spear. Beretta moves and locks his calves around the former Nexus leader's head...pulling him out of the ring. This time it is Trent tossing Barrett into the ring.
Act 3 Trent sets Barrett up for a slingshot maneuver and jumps off the ropes straight into a Wasteland. 1 - 2 - 3!
Winner: Wade Barrett by pinfall.

McGuillicutty chokes Jey against the ropes with his knee as the New Nexus dissects the brother. Michael tags in Otunga again, who forces Jey into the corner. McGuillicutty connects with an elbow smash and David with a Clothesline! Jey tumbles to the mat and barely kicks out of another pin.
Act 3: Otunga uses a Cobra Clutch variation with his knee in Jey's back. Jey fights out and Otunga retaliates only to be sunk with a Samoan Drop! Jimmy has since hyped up the crowd and Jey gets the hot tag! Taking to the ropes, Jimmy takes the advantage with two Clotheslines and a spinning forearm smash! He sets up in the opposite corner and nails a Rikishi butt bump whiplashing Michael's head back into the turnbuckle. He goes for the cover. 1 - 2 -
Otunga makes the save, only to be met by a Superkick from Jey Uso! Michael goes after Jey, who tosses Mike into a Superkick from Jimmy! Jimmy then gets the tag and sets McGuillicutty up for the finish...
Another tag and the Uso pays amage to Mr. Snuka with a Superfly Splash! 1 - 2 - 3!
Winner: Jimmy & Jey Uso by pinfall.

Act 2 Maryse counters Beth off the ropes with a chop block to the knee and a shot to the head. 1 - 2 - Kickout. The two time Diva's Champion pulls Beth's hair and slams her head into the turnbuckle upon letting up multiple times. She then hits a running knee to the face of Beth. Some pound and ground by the French-Canadian beauty before she steals Beth's head band and mocks her with the Glamazon taunt.
Act 3 Beth must fight out of the chinlock, she brings Maryse up on her shoulders. Maryse gets down and wails as she slaps Phoenix. Beth drives her into the corner and hits a Slingshot Suplex. They take to the ropes again and Maryse counters with a Superkick to the back of Beth's head. 1 - 2 -

- As noted before, The Rock said in his most recent video that he's looking forward to confronting John Cena in a city where the fans chanted his name for the first time, and implied that he may meet Cena on an upcoming WWE pay-per-view. There's speculation that The Rock was referring to New York City's Madison Square Garden, which will host WWE's Survivor Series in November of this year.

John Cena responded to The Rock's latest video (Click here to watch) with the following:
"CeNation. Just saw Dwayne's statement. Via satellite of course. Sad, really. It was like an episode of mad money. I wonder if GLAAD will be offended by Dwayne's comments. Either way..looks like I have really made him mad. But, certainly not mad enough to show up and do anything. Maybe he can send a stuntman. Dwayne. I am a WWE employee, and a proud one. The difference between us is you left for 'greener pastures'. For me...this is what I love. I have never begged for anyones admiration or acceptance, u don't believe me..watch MITB. Its not about that. Its about showing up. Id rather wrestle a thousand 'punks' than one 'rock'. Because I can see his passion. Wish I could see yours...yer just never there. :) Until april 1st.

What happened with Cena/Punk after RAW ended Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 07/11/2011 at 11:27 PM
After RAW ended, John Cena defeated CM Punk in dark match.
From Brent L: "The match lasted about ten minutes. Punk grabbed the mic and wanted to thank Derek Jeter for his 3000 hits along with thanking himself. Punk then shoved Cena's father at ringside which led to a punch from his father as well as an AA from Cena. Overall great Raw and Punk live is amazing."

The following was posted on Orlando Jordan's Twitter:
"Some of you have been with me from the start and some of you have joined me along the way. I want to thank (the) TNA locker room for allowing me to shake things up, and try to shine a light on some preconceived perception I deal with every day personally and professionally. I got my wings back, so let's fly. Thanks TNA and wish nothing but the best."
Matt Jackson better known as Max Buck, one half of the TNA tag team Generation Me has revealed that he and his brother have asked and have been granted their release from TNA. From his official twitter page:
Want you to hear it from us first: Yesterday, we asked for our release. Special thanks to TNA & the fans for a wonderful experience.
Immediately following last night's destination X pay per view, Max reverted his twitter account back to his old twitter name posting that he just felt like using his old username. Matt has posted that they are now taking independent bookings.
•WWE Champion John Cena def. WWE Tag Team Champions David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty •Divas Champion Kelly Kelly def. Melina •Alex Riley, Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne def. The Miz, R-Truth & Jack Swagger •Big Show vs. U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre ended in a Double Count-out
BOSTON – Apparently, CM Punk’s vitriolic – and yes, classic – diatribe two weeks ago was but a prelude. The Second City Savior poured even more gasoline onto his already fiery rhetoric with just six days before the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
Contract negotiations unraveled between CM Punk and Mr. McMahon; WWE Champion John Cena attacked Punk (WATCH: PART 1 | PART 2 | PHOTOS) CM Punk is a man with nothing to lose. And that makes him a dangerous man, indeed.
Two weeks after giving Mr. McMahon the verbal equivalent of a kick in the grapefruits, The Second City Savior returned to Raw to renegotiate his contract. This time, though, he clearly had the upper hand. Although The Chairman had agreed to all of Punk’s earlier demands in the wake of a threat by WWE Champion John Cena, the preachy Superstar still wasn’t satisfied. Punk insisted that he also receive a private jet, that WWE ice cream bars return, that he star in his own movie and that he main event at WrestleMania. Although Mr. McMahon appeared grudgingly prepared to sign, Cena brought negotiations screeching to a halt.
The WWE Champion confronted Punk and things quickly devolved. After listening to Punk deride him for becoming everything he hates, Cena clocked his Money in the Bank opponent, who wisely snatched the contract from Mr. McMahon and skirted from the ring. He fled up the entrance ramp and once again unleashed a tirade against Cena, Mr. McMahon and the whole of the WWE Universe before tearing up his unsigned contract.
Big Show vs. U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre ended in a Double Count-out (WATCH | PHOTOS) Ever wonder what would happen if a tank and a tractor trailer played chicken? To get some idea, one need only watch Sunday’s match between Big Show and Mark Henry. The World’s Largest Athlete competed against U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match, after which Big Show collided with The World’s Strongest Man. During the match, Ziggler had refused to tag in, betraying McIntyre, who suffered a miserable fate as the referee ended the match on a double count-out. When Big Show dragged the Scotsman from the ring, Henry ambushed the giant, and the two flew from the stage, crashing several feet below.
In the aftermath of the fall, both Superstars appeared in pain. Each refused medical treatment, however, and were unwilling to admit to any injuries.
Alex Riley, Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne def. The Miz, R-Truth & Jack Swagger (WATCH | PHOTOS) At Money in the Bank, it’s sure to be every man for himself. Less than a week before the star-making match, however, six of the eight competitors teamed up in a Six-Man Tag Team Match. Alex Riley, Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne joined forces to battle The Miz, R-Truth & Jack Swagger (not competing were Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio, who was quick to complain that he’d already earned No. 1 contender status before Punk’s reinstatement). The six Superstars provided a small glimpse into just how the contest may unfold.
After a battalion of blows and aerial assaults by both sides, A-Ry finally pinned The All-American American for the win. Afterward, The Miz ambushed his former assistant. This led to a series of attacks until, finally, Alberto Del Rio emerged brandishing a ladder and wiped out everyone until all six Superstars were incapacitated.
Divas Champion Kelly Kelly def. Melina (WATCH | PHOTOS) Sure, The Bella Twins are gorgeous – on the outside. Under the surface, though, Brie & Nikki are in desperate need of makeovers. As the girls watched Divas Champion Kelly Kelly compete against Melina in a non-title bout, they skewered the blonde beauty with a barrage of petty verbal daggers. When Kelly won the match, the Bellas continued their harassment until she’d finally had enough and attacked. As the pair double-teamed their target, Eve shot into the ring to help the Divas Champion. Less than a week before Brie competes for the Divas Title at Money in the Bank, she and her sister left Kelly and Eve in an unsightly heap on the mat.
WWE Champion John Cena def. WWE Tag Team Champions David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty (WATCH | PHOTOS) Just six days before defending his title at Money in the Bank, WWE Champion John Cena was forced to overcome the odds. The Champ found himself in the unenviable position of tackling WWE Tag Team Champions David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty, a couple of Punk disciples from The New Nexus. Cena proved why he’s so formidable by overcoming the disadvantage and prevailing over the powerful pair.
CM Punk returned, confronted WWE Champion John Cena (WATCH: PART 1 | PART 2 | PHOTOS) Two weeks after unleashing one of the most scathing, groundbreaking rants in WWE history, The Second City Savior returned to Raw – a return made possible thanks to an unlikely source, WWE Champion John Cena. Punk’s longtime nemesis and opponent at Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view argued with Mr. McMahon about his decision to suspend Punk for the epic tirade. The WWE Chairman grudgingly relented and agreed to reinstate the holier-than-thou Superstar … under one condition. If Punk prevails on Sunday and leaves with the WWE Title, Cena will be fired.
Punk did not return, however, to thank The Champ for laying his career on the line. Instead, he was there to renegotiate his contract – on his terms. After WWE officials contacted him, The Second City Savior insisted the negotiation happen on live TV and that he will walk if The WWE Chairman himself doesn’t beg him to stay.
Cena emerged to confront Punk, but before tensions got too strained between the two, Raw’s anonymous General Manager chimed in and arranged a 2-on-1 Handicap Match pitting the WWE Champion against WWE Tag Team Champions David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty.

- The Medina Gazette from Ohio reports that WWE signed NAIA national wrestling champion Derek Foore to a developmental deal on Friday. Foore was invited to a FCW tryout months ago after WWE's Jerry Brisco scouted him at a wrestling competition. Foore is planning a move to Florida where he can begin training at FCW.
The two-time national finalist and three-time high school state wrestling runner-up had the following to say about the signing:
"Right when I got the call I was like, ‘Yes, I’m one step closer. I’m willing to do whatever it takes. When I’m crazy enough, big enough and my career is sound and well-molded, that’s when they’ll say ‘Ok, you’re ready, man.’ I’m just living in the moment. I’m 22 years old and I have this opportunity. I will take it and seize it."
