As of Wednesday night, two sources close to the situation report that Sin Cara's future with WWE has not been determined. There was lots of talk this past week that WWE won't be bringing him back at all.
Lucha Libre website R De Rudo conducted an interview with Zema Ion Xion shortly after his Match at an IWRG event in Mexico. Xion revealed that he has signed a contract with TNA and will be making his debut soon.
Zema Ion "It feels like home," when talking about Mexico. Regarding his match at TNA's Destination X against Austin Aries, Jack Evans and Low Ki, the Filipino said "I love my name but TNA renamed me to Zima Ion, I have a contract with them and will be appearing on television soon."
SpikeTV's Official twitter page posted a peculiar picture of current WWE Divas champion Kelly Kelly meeting up with TNA Knockouts champion Mickie James at the SpikeTV booth during the San Diego Comic Con. Spike Officials took a picture of the encounter and posted it on their twitter page. You can view the picture below:
*RUMOR* Is The TNA/AAA Working Relationship Not Going Well?
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter TNA wrestlers have been unhappy about the working conditions in AAA. Some TNA Wrestlers have complained that conditions in the arena are very bad and often quite primitive compared to North American arenas. One wrestler pointed out that there was no running water in the vicinity. The report also notes that Velvet Sky and Angelina Love complained about Mari Apache being too stiff with them in the ring. Others complained about the lack of security following the outcome of Triplemania where AAA fans threw objects at them and some were even able to physically grab wrestlers.
Mr. Anderson reportedly refused to return to AAA unless he was given more money to deal with such harsh conditions. Anderson was expected at last week's show but was replaced just a few days before the show with Scott Steiner.
WWE Hall of Famer 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin commented on his Official Twitter page that WWE should hire TNA wrestler Samoa Joe
WWE should sign @SamoaJoe as soon as his TNA contract is up. One of my favorite workers in today's game. Needs a full green light push.
Samoa Joe's TNA deal had expired some months back and was working some dates on a verbal agreement with the company. During that time it was said that WWE showed no interest in signing Joe and he did eventually sign a new deal with TNA
WWE.com announced Saturday that Kane will be sidelined for at least three months due to a fractured fibula. He sustained the injury while being attacked by Mark Henry, which occurred moments after Randy Orton defeated the multi-time champion in a Street Fight.
Mark Henry injures Kane
Similar to what he did to Big Show at Money in the Bank, Mark Henry brutalized Kane's leg using a steel chair on the July 22 edition of SmackDown. The attack occurred just moments after Orton defeated Kane in a brutal Street Fight.
According to WWE doctor Michael Sampson, Kane suffered a fractured fibula, which will keep him out of the ring for at least three months. "But because of potential complications with such a severe injury, it could also keep him out of action for an undetermined amount of time," Sampson said.

SmackDown results: Calamity after the storm By: Michael Burdick July 22, 2011 Tags: SmackDown: July 22, 2011 MINNEAPOLIS – In the wake of the explosive Money in the Bank pay-per-view, anarchy reigned on SmackDown, as the brutality of Randy Orton and Kane’s ruthless Street Fight was eclipsed only by the World’s Strongest fury.
Randy Orton def. Kane in a Street Fight (WATCH | PHOTOS) In an intense match of swinging kendo sticks, collapsing announce tables, weaponized steel steps and a merciless ring post, former World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton ultimately reigned supreme over Kane. When The Devil’s Favorite Demon attempted to finish WWE’s Apex Predator off with a tombstone onto a steel chair, Orton escaped – driving his monstrous prey into the waiting steel implement with an RKO for the victory.
Following the match, the two tough-as-nails warriors shook hands in a grand moment of mutual respect. However, once The Viper left, the infuriated Mark Henry entered the arena. Taking down The Big Red Monster with the World’s Strongest Slam, the enraged Superstar chose to take his attack to the next level. Trapping Kane’s already injured leg in the steel chair, The World’s Strongest Man crashed down upon it from the ropes – just as he did to Big Show at Money in the Bank five days before. Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett ended in a Double Count-out (WATCH | PHOTOS) When a wild brawl between Sheamus and Wade Barrett overtook their match, the referee was forced to count-out both competitors. Afterward, Barrett hurled his distracted opponent into the ring post. But, when he tried to follow-up his assault up with Wasteland, The Celtic Warrior broke loose, flooring him with a devastating Brogue Kick.
Daniel Bryan def. Heath Slater (WATCH | PHOTOS) Heath Slater may have walked into Minneapolis confident enough to call Mr. Money in the Bank Daniel Bryan a “loser” before their match. But, it was The One Man Southern Rock Band who was destined to walk out defeated, tapping out to Daniel Bryan’s unique display of submission excellence.
Daniel Bryan made a startling WrestleMania proclamation (WATCH) Dismissing Michael Cole’s criticism, Daniel Bryan continued to show the same heroic determination that earned him the SmackDown Money in the Bank Ladder Match victory five days earlier. Rather than choosing to keep the moment he will cash in his title opportunity under wraps, the determined Bryan revealed that he will do it in the main event at WrestleMania on April 1, 2012 in Miami.
World Heavyweight Champion Christian def. Intercontinental Champion Ezekiel Jackson in a Non-Title Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) Just five days after winning his second World Heavyweight Championship from Randy Orton in a barrage of controversy, Christian triumphed over Ezekiel Jackson, slamming The Personification of Domination into the ring post before executing the Killswitch for the three-count.
Randy Orton had “unfinished business” with World Heavyweight Champion Christian (PHOTOS) After losing his World Heavyweight Title to Christian by disqualification at Money in the Bank, the irate Viper called-out the new champion and demanded his rematch. Order quickly began to break down, prompting SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long to step in. Teddy reminded Orton that he was already signed to face Kane in a Street Fight and, therefore, could not challenge his adversary. Instead, the GM decided to put Christian into a match with Intercontinental Champion Ezekiel Jackson.
CM Punk crashed the joint Mattel/WWE panel—WWE: Past, Present and Future—this afternoon at the San Diego Comic-Con, featuring Triple H, Rey Mysterio and WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart.
Punk announced himself via bullhorn and then, with the WWE Championship in hand, sauntered to the designated question-asking microphone and began to speak. The Straight Edge Superstar took exception to WWE attempting to crown a new champion on RAW and then challenged Mysterio, or anyone else who wanted to be champ, to head out to Chicago to take him on.
Punk then asked Triple H and creative writer Brian Gewirtz why Zack Ryder wasn't on television. Triple H, in what appeared to be a kayfabe response, told Punk that things had changed on Raw and there was a new regime. He told Punk to give him a call. Punk responded by telling Hunter that he was certain Stephanie had his phone number. You can check out a few videos of this below.
The introduction leads us to the hot topic: McMahon "relieved of his duties." This will be covered tonight.
Justin Gabriel makes his way to the ring with his fresh music. (We've been talking about a face run for him for weeks, hopefully it doesn't consistently reside on Superstars.)
Tyson Kidd makes his way to the ring. Again - the weekly managerial switch appears to be over as he has NO manager. It also appears Tyson is going to grow out his hair normally. This match is going to be good.
Justin Gabriel Vs. Tyson Kidd
...And we are underway as Tyson quickly goes for the legs of Gabriel and drops him to his stomach for an amateur take down. Gabriel quickly gets to his knees for a headlock on Tyson. To the ropes goes Justin, who gets a Shoulder Block followed by an exchange of the ropes before Tyson finally attempts a hip toss, only for Gabriel to flip onto his feet and trip the legs of Kidd.
A failed pin attempt and Tyson takes advantage with a few shots to Gabriel. Gabriel tries to make a comeback with a Springboard from the apron, only to be met with a dropkick. Tyson then hits a Snapmare and a kick to the back followed by a failed pin attempt.
Gabriel finds himself stuck in a chinlock. He fights out but Tyson continues to target his head and neck area with a few shots followed up with an elbow drop. Never a wasted move by Tyson... and we are back to the chinlock. Striker notes all the pressure of Tyson's body weight is on the neck and head of Gabriel who awaits a russel in the crowd.
Gabriel rolls Kidd over his shoulder and nails a few shots to his thighs followed by a Spinning Heel Kick. Some more exchanges on the ropes leads to another high kick from Gabriel. He awaits Tyson's return to his feet before nailing a forearm smash followed by a two count. Minneapolis seems dead tonight. :( (Way to represent guys! lol)
Kidd hits a surprised shot to Gabriel's gut followed by a dropkick to his head. A pin attempt finds nothing. Gabriel finds himself in a defensive position in the corner before skinning the cat up to the top turnbuckle. Tyson is determined to capitalize here with a Hurricanrana from the top.
Justin Gabriel holds onto the top ropes and Kidd crashes to the mat. There's life in this crowd after all as they prepare themselves for a beautiful 450 Splash! 1...2...
and 3! Matt Striker asks, "Where does Justin Gabriel go now?"
Winner: Justin Gabriel by pinfall.
McMahon/Triple H later tonight!

Alicia Fox struts herself to the ring with Rihanna-red ponytails.
Natalya is already in the ring.
Alicia Fox Vs. Natalya
The commentators remind us of the hair-pulling match-up they had two weeks ago on Superstars. Trash talking leads to the two shoving each other. Natty hits a drop toe hold on Alicia and goes for an underhook headlock before Alicia reverses into a hammer lock.
Act 2 Natty elbows out of it and goes around Alicia wrenching in a waistlock before Alicia ties up in the ropes and the Ref calls for the break. Alicia loses her belt, becomes inferiorated and her temper leads her straight into a Delayed Verticle Suplex.
Alicia powers out of a pinfall attempt. Natty grabs Fox's long legs and pushes her up into a Surfboard submission. Alicia falls backward onto her shoulders and the Ref goes for a double count. 1...2...
Both recover for a few quick exchanges. Alicia nails a clothesline and a does not get a win from it. Natty fights back only to be SLAPPED. Natty gets one of her own on Fox!! The two exchange back and forth!
Act 3 Into the corner now, Fox nails an elbow on the approaching Neidhart. Alicia sets up for her finisher Scissors Axe Kick. She wraps her long legs around Natty only to be reversed into the Sharpshooter. Before she can pull the trigger, Alicia reverses into a quick roll up for the win!
Winner: Alicia Fox by pinfall.
This puts Alicia as 2-0 over Natty, who looks inferiorated.

Otunga & McGillicutty make their way to the ring with some generic music, still Nexus.
"Oh, Radio!" brings their first opponent...Zack Ryder!
His opponent from previous weeks, his new found partner, Santino Marella makes his way to the ring.
Tag Team Champions: New Nexus - Otunga & McGillicutty Vs. Ryder & Marella
Otunga and Santino start things off with a lock-up, only for Santino to back out and get scared, tagging Ryder in.
Ryder gets the advantage with an arm drag and wrenches the shoulder. Otunga powers out and finds himself on his back again from a shoulder block. Santino is tagged back in and his efforts are thwarted by Dave, who as usual, tags in McGillicutty.
Arm drag by Santino, who follows it up with an Inverted Atomic Drop. (Nice to see his true skills come out here.) He sets up for the Cobra as Mike hits a cheap shot to Ryder.
McGillicutty rolls under the Cobra and out of the ring. Santino follows in pursuit and Otunga falls victim to a shot from Santino, but does his job: Distraction. McGillicutty flies from the apron with a knee to the head of Santino as we go to a break.
WWE All-Stars promo.
Michael hits a Perfect Dropkick as we come back from the break, but his perfection falls short with a two count. He brings Santino's skull into Otunga's boot in the corner and gets the tag. The two hit their signature Elbow/Clothesline combo in the corner. Otunga wastes time taunting the crowd and fails to pick up the win because of it.
Just like last week, Otunga goes for the chinlock. Santino fights out only for Otunga to hang him up on the ropes and nail another Clothesline. It's almost as if we are watching a replay of last week, as Otunga once again tags in Mike.
Mike brings him to the ground and fails to get the pin. Otunga is tagged back in and they go for their double team combo again. Santino gets out of dodge and hits the hot tag on Ryder!
Ryder hits a series of Clotheslines on Otunga as the crowd goes wild. He follows it up with a forearm smash in the corner. "WOO! WOO! WOO!" He nails the Browski Boot and goes for the cover. 1...2...
Michael makes the save. Santino attempts one of his own, only to miss and find himself on the floor. Ryder makes sure that McGillicutty is soon to follow. Otunga goes for the Verdict only for it to be reversed into the Rough Ryder leg lariat and the victory!
Winners: Ryder & Santino by pinfall by Ryder on Otunga.
The two do their signature taunts and Ryder attempts to spike Marella's hair.
UP NEXT: Evan 'Air' Bourne is in action.

Evan Bourne makes his way to the ring.
Primo is already in the squared circle. (This will be a great match up - but I must be honest...I almost forgot about Primo. It's been a while since he's been on TV at all. Nothing against his ability, he's an amazing talent...but we've seen Drew McIntyre more as of late.)
Evan Bourne Vs. Primo
The two start with waistlocks, leg scissors and other various flashy moves, countering each other to hype up the crowd.
Arm wringers and hammer locks are reversed, Evan Bourne flips Primo Colon to the mat for a one count. Evan into the corner, Primo flips and does a headstand on the top rope, nailing a leg scissors on Bourne. Bourne off the ropes, he hits the same. Primo dodges a dropkick from Evan.
Primo goes for a delayed Verticle Suplex only to find Evan fighting his way out of it. A shot to the hamstring is followed up by another head scissors attempt. Bourne instead finds himself slammed face first on the mat by Primo in a creative counter. He follows it up with a knee drop to the face.
Primo chokes Evan against the ropes before getting a two count. He nails a Russian Leg Sweep before locking his legs on Bourne's right leg and behind his neck for a submission. Bourne fights out only to find himself again at the mercy of Primo in the corner. Colon beats down Bourne.
Again with the Delayed Verticle. 1...2...
Two count for Primo. He goes for a headlock on Bourne. Bourne comes back as Primo meets the ropes and is greeted by a Dropkick. Primo is then sent forward into the corner, Bourne runs up behind only to find Primo flying over his head and nailing a Sunset flip. Bourne fights out and before Primo can make another move his sternum is double stomped by Bourne! Two count!
Elbow by Primo. Hurricanrana into a pin by Bourne. Two count, reversed into a pin by Primo...the two bridge and come back to their feet in a great exchange. Bourne ends up on top in this battle with a Spinning Heel Kick.
Bourne makes his way to the top rope and the high rent district finds it's Shooting Star Press! 1...2...
Winner: Evan Bourne by pinfall. GREAT MATCH-UP!

Sin Cara-WWE Update, more Posted by Steve Carrier on 07/21/2011 at 03:09 PM
- WWE announced today that WrestleMania 28 travel packages have sold out.
- The Record in Mexico has pulled their interview with Sin Cara from yesterday where he talked about his WWE Wellness Policy suspension. Word is that WWE was very upset about Cara discussing the issue publicly, specifically his claim that it was all just a misunderstanding and he didn't know why he was being suspended.
Chapel Hill, NC hosts Nitro on this 6th of March edition. The build up to Uncensored 2000 continues with Jeff Jarrett still commissioner of WCW. Vampiro and Fit Finlay fight backstage, Psychosis vs. Kaz Hiashi, Ron Harris vs. Big Vito, David Flair vs. The Wall, The Dog vs. Evan Karagias, Jeff Jarrett on the mic, Ric Flair vs. Curt Hennig, Lane vs. Screamin' Norman Smiley, Tank Abbott on the mic, Hulk Hogan segment, Billy Kidman and Booker vs. Harlem Heat, Dustin Rhodes calls out Terry Funk, Jeff Jarrett and The Wall vs. Vampiro and Sid Vicious.
Sin Cara reveals why he was suspended from WWE Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 07/20/2011 at 04:44 PM
Sin Cara recently did an interview with Mexican newspaper The Record in regards to his recent suspension from WWE. According to Sin Cara, WWE management told him that he failed a Wellness Policy test for steroids. He said he wanted more information as to why exactly he failed. He also said that many medications contain steroids and he believes that it is possible an injection given by a doctor caused the positive test.
We are live on tape from Minneapolis, Minnesota and your announcers are Todd ‘Can we go to Target Field instead’ Grisham and William ‘Let’s Hear it for our new boss Triple Haitch’ Regal. Your hosts are Matt ‘We are Minnesota Wild and Young’ Striker and Maryse.
Todd mentions that a former NXT rookie won the Smackdown Money in the Bank match, but they also talk about what happened at the end of Raw and Regal mentions that he is a little worried about his job.
Maryse and Matt are in the ring with a punching bag with Michael Cole’s face on it. Maryse bring out the rookies.
Matt reminds the rookie of the prize for winning this season and it is time for some redemption points to be awarded. Matt explains the redemption points. Titus O’Neil is in the lead with 25 Redemption Points. Darren Young has 7 Redemption Points. Derrick Bateman has 0 points. This week’s challenge is called the Dummy Demonstration and Matt points out Michael Cole’s picture on it. The challenge is worth five redemption points.
Derrick Bateman goes first and he says that everyone in the Twin Cities says that the fans came here to see the Dummy Demonstration but the dumbest thing on NXT is the Titus O’Neil dog bark. The dummy represents what is going to happen when they meet in the ring even though he won twice. Derrick gives the dummy a couple elbow drops followed by a Earthquake Splash and a backdrop driver. Derrick tells Titus that he can get all the redemption points he wants because he will be the one who will get redemption.
Darren Young is next and Darren knocks over the dummy and he says it is the dumbest idea that he has ever been a part of. Darren doesn’t need to wrestle a dummy to show his true talent when he has been in matches with some of the greatest in the WWE like John Cena. Darren says that he might sound like a broken record but he doesn’t need Redemption Points or a pro. He tells Titus that he won’t be in the ring with a dummy, he will be in the ring with D Young. There is nothing that will stop him from putting his size thirteen across Titus’ lips.
Titus tells Derrick what he did to the dummy was pretty impressive because it doesn’t hit back. Titus says that he does. He tells Derrick to do to him what he did to the dummy. He tells Darren that it doesn’t matter who he faced, there is only one thing that matters in this competition is to make it a win. Titus picks up the dummy and throws it at Darren on the floor.
The fans are asked who should win and in one of the biggest shocks, Titus O’Neil is your winner and he now has 30 Redemption Points. Regal says that we are all winners after watching this segment.
Regal talks about the match that is coming up next between JTG (who Regal calls Jimmy The Gimmick) and Vladimir Kozlov.
We go to commercial.
JTG has something to say on the way to the ring. He calls Vlad a silly Russian and he says that they made a bet and Vlad doesn’t know what a Gangsta is. He tells all of the haters in Minnesota and Vladimir that no matter how hard you try or you pray. You get up in the morning and ask yourself why are you not as fly as JTG. You will never be as hood as Brooklyn’s flyest, JTG.
Match Number One: Vladimir Kozlov versus JTG

Hornswoggle is given another package and he opens it.

We go to commercial but when we come back, it will be time to take a look back at the end of Raw (don’t worry because if you missed it Monday or tonight, they will show it on Thursday during Superstars).
We are back and it is time to take a look back at what happened at the end of Raw last night. We go to end of Vince McMahon’s comments and are joined in progress.
As we have previously noted here. TNA knockout Sarita has been suffering through a bout of facial paralysis. She has worked a number of matches with a mask to hide part of her face. This past weekend she worked the two day WWC Anniversary show in Puerto Rico facing off against Black Rose. She wore a mask on those two days. You can view a picture of the mask below:
The Rock Tells Cena To Stick His Apology Up His .. Posted by Dave Mitchell on 07/19/2011 at 11:27 AM
On Monday afternoon, former WWE champion John Cena posted a message on Twitter apologizing to The Rock for all the remarks he's made regarding The Rock's absence from WWE television. Cena wrote:
"I would like to take a moment to publicly apologize to Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson. In an effort to make WM28 as big as possible I tried to expose rock for his flaws. Very childish and immature on my behalf. My comments about the rocks absence were both unprofessional and childish. I am sorry.
The Rock responded with a message on Twitter, asking WWE to keep John Cena on the roster so he could whoop his candy ass at WrestleMania.
It was announced on RAW that Cena would not be fired (despite losing the WWE title to CM Punk at Money in the Bank), which prompted another anti-Cena tweet from The Rock after RAW:
"Cena - get back on your tour bus, call up your favorite yum rocket, take your apology and stick it straight up your phony ass."
- Word going around yesterday and at last night's RAW was that WWE will not be bringing Sin Cara back after he failed a Wellness test. As noted before, it's believed that Cara actually failed the test in mid-June but was just suspended yesterday. There is a lot of heat on Cara for the suspension because he's been promoted as Triple H's first major international hire.
as we mentioned earlier, TNA wrestler Samoa Joe worked last night's AAA television taping. Mr. Anderson was also advertised for the show. For whatever reason, he was not there and was replaced by Scott Steiner. Joe submitted electroshock for the win. At the end of the show Joe, Steiner and Park attacked El Zorro who was wearing his old mask. Konnan announced that the next pay per view, Verano De Escandalo will have a 3 way match for the AAA Mega Heavyweight Championship between Jeff Jarrett, LA Park and Dr. Wagner.

Raw results: Pink slipped By: Greg Adkins July 18, 2011 Tags: Raw: July 18, 2011 GREEN BAY – It was an 11th hour stay of execution. Arguably the most popular Superstar in WWE had his head on the chopping block, but just before Mr. McMahon could bring down the axe, a returning Superstar shocked The Chairman – and the WWE Universe - and delivered the mother of all pink slips.
Triple H returned to relieve Mr. McMahon of his duties (WATCH | PHOTOS | FULL STORY) Before Rey Mysterio and The Miz could compete in the final round of the WWE Championship Tournament, Mr. McMahon demanded that the ring be cleared – he had important business to conduct. After explaining the tumultuous events that took place the night before at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view, The Chairman ordered former WWE Champion John Cena to the ring. The Cenation Commander-in-Chief showed and offered an impassioned speech about hhis love of WWE.
Before Mr. McMahon could give him his walking papers, though, he received an unwelcome guest. Triple H, not seen on Raw in more than three months, interrupted his famous father-in-law. The Game, a WWE executive and husband of Stephanie McMahon, told The Chairman that his decisions of late have been called into question by WWE board members. He then went on to drop a bombshell on Mr. McMahon – and the WWE Universe. The Chairman of WWE has officially been relieved of his duties.
Rey Mysterio def. R-Truth in a WWE Title Tournament Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) Despite their impressive careers, neither Rey Mysterio nor R-Truth has ever held the WWE Title, which goes a long way in explaining why each fought so doggedly to advance to the final round of the WWE Championship Tournament. In the end, WWE’s Biggest Little Man would prevail over his fellow Money in the Bank Ladder Match participant to advance to the final round. There, he must face The Miz for the WWE Title on the next Raw.

Generation Me explains why they left TNA Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 07/17/2011 at 03:00 PM
Generation Me posted the following at GenMeMax.tumblr.com which explains why they left TNA Wrestling...
"Simply put: If we weren’t wrestling, we weren’t making money…And a guys gotta eat. Obviously, if you’re a fan of the show, you probably hadn’t seen us for quite sometime."
"Aside from the television program, TNA also runs live events around the country. In 2011, we’d only been on a handful of those, as well. Now, don’t get me wrong. When you’re booked a bunch, you’re making pretty good money, which was the case for us in our first year with the company. Not so much, this year."
"After a small reminder in New York City, of what we left behind, and news breaking about MORE X-Division wrestlers being hired and added to an already bloated roster, the writing was on the wall."
"If they couldn’t fit everyone on the show before, how did they expect to do so now, with even more wrestlers? We felt we’d be doing everyone a favor - so we asked for our release."
The Bella Twins Lash Out at Fans on Twitter Posted by Steve Carrier on 07/18/2011 at 12:11 PM
The Bella Twins lashed out at fans on Twitter criticizing Brie's largely panned performance at Money in the Bank. The Twin duo, who share an account, fired back at fans who posted negative remarks concerning the WWE Divas Championship bout by saying they have no room to talk.
A Bella wrote, "I think it's funny when people have to RT something a lot when they don't even have the skill to back it up... #Desperate&Sad."
Minutes later, a fan suggested that Brie learn how to wrestle and could do so by studying footage of the TNA Knockouts. The fan wrote, "I'm actually shocked your match went like 5 mins haha!!! But seriously, learn to work. Watch TNA Knockouts and take notes!!!"
One of the Bellas snarked, "they have the worst matches ever." She added, "Show up to a live event and your mouth will shut up... Like we're in charge of time."
Fan's live report from Money in the Bank Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 07/18/2011 at 12:01 PM
Adam Dziubczynski sent in the following notes after attending the MITB PPV...
A review of what I would like to think is the best WWE PPV in quite some time, or as we all know it as CM Punk In The Bank!
1. The atmosphere was insane, and I really hope it came across that way on tv. During the Divas match and the Big Show/Henry match, the crowd had a pretty good CM Punk chant going on. Hope it came across on tv. Those matches were lame, but on the bright side, the Bellas are even hotter in person and Henry is a beast!
2. I was a tad disappointed in the Smackdown MiTB match. I figured for more high flying, but the Raw ladder match was way beyond my expectations. Incredibly awesome! And when Evan Bourne did his Jeff Hardy? OMG! Oh, and Sheamus was over HUGE!
3. It's official. Chicago hates Orton. Not as much as Cena, but everyone kept wanting him to get Christian "one more time" as the chant went, while also chanting for Daniel Bryan. I was keeping my eye on the ramp for Bryan to come cash in, but nope. Oh well. I'm sure they've got big plans for him.
4. The Raw ladder match. OMG! Miz had insane heat when he was announced, but when he came running out, you'd think CM Punk was out! It was crazy. Del Rio throwing Rey's mask = OVER OVER OVER!!!! Not one cheer for Rey, except some stupid little bastard in my section, who was about 3 yrs old. f*** him.
5. Do I even need to give my thoughts on the CM Punk match? I will tell you guys this. I've been a smark since the 90's. I know that John Cena isn't going anywhere. He's the "franchise". We all know this. However, I will admit, I marked out so hard tonight, I almost had tears in my eyes. I was literally standing the whole match, eager with anticipation, screaming "DON'T YOU TAP TO A f***ING GUY IN JEAN SHORTS!!!" I haven't booed this much at an event since I went to a Bulls/Heat game. It was just unbelievable, and I honestly wish those of you that I've become "friends" with in here were there with me to experience it! I WILL be buying this dvd!
Several Wrestlers Comment on Punk-Cena's Match Posted by Steve Carrier on 07/18/2011 at 12:31 AM
Kevin Nash: "MITB better than any mma ppv I've watched. Punk continues to gain my respect and Jay is the F**KIN man,WWE at it's best"
Mick Foley: "I don't think I've ever been jealous of a wrestler's character before. Money, yes, character, no. @cmpunk has changed that. Damn. Damn!"
Steve Austin: "@CMPunk and @JohnCena had a big time pro wrestling match. I loved it. And I loved the finish. Congrats to both guys. Great stuff."
"WOW!!! What a Tremendous reception for @CMPunk! That was a 10 out of 10. Hell Yeah!"
Trish Stratus: "What's so wrong w/ leaving the company as champion, right @wweuniverse? Hehe! Great match-the 'to be continued' is what's got me #mustseetv"
Sean Waltman: "That was f**king unbelievable. Glad I decided on a later flight in order to see that. Hats off to both guys and to WWE for doing it right. Now I can get on my flight a happy man. Thanks @CMPunk and @JohnCena . Thanks to Chicago for making that so electric. Best bldg in world."
Seth Rollins: "We're still a wrestling company and that was how professional wrestling is done."
Joey Styles: "I can't believe this. Our WWE Champion doesn't work for WWE and John Cena is or will be fired. OMG! Holy Crap!"
What Happened After WWE MITB from Chicago Posted by Steve Carrier on 07/17/2011 at 11:12 PM
- Thanks to Ron for the following:
- After Money in the Bank went off the air, Vince McMahon stood there shocked before finally walking off. He stopped to wait on John Laurinaitis. Officials helped Laurinaitis to the back but Vince laid him out with a right hand and walked off.
- During tonight's WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Paul Heyman finally spoke on CM Punk and his RAW promo from a few weeks back. Heyman wrote:
"It's been 20 days since @CMPunk turned the wrestling world and WWE Universe completely upside down w/ his performance. It's not what @CMPunk said, it's the realism with which his promo was delivered. HE felt it. So did millions of fans, too. @CMPunk is not the voice of the voiceless, he's the voice of today's generation! @CMPunk is cool and bad ass, yet he's a man of principle. He translates to grownups and kids alike. I'M A @CMPunk GUY!"
