- Corinne Oliver, the woman who is accusing Heath Slater of attacking her during WrestleMania 27 weekend, tells WSBTV in Atlanta that the incident with Slater was the worst moment of her life. "When he grabbed me I immediately tried to grab his arms back, and I was saying 'Turn me a loose.' He wouldn't turn me loose," she said.
This is when Slater put her in a chokehold, she says. "I just started fighting with him, trying to get his arm from around my throat," Oliver said. Oliver added that as she fought to get away, Slater kept begging her to go to his hotel room.
More Details on the Alleged Assault by Slater Posted by Steve Carrier on 08/12/2011 at 10:40 AM
- The Atlanta Journal Constitution has an article up today on security guard Corinne Oliver's claims against Heath Slater from WrestleMania 27 weekend in Atlanta. Oliver says that she has had back pains ever since Slater allegedly put her in a chokehold and tried taking her into his hotel room.
WWE is keeping distance from the situation. "The alleged victim is making claims against Slater individually, and it’s being investigated," WWE spokesman Jerry McDevitt said. "This has nothing to do with the WWE."
According to a police report, the alleged assault happened between 4am and 5am on April 4th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta, the day after WrestleMania. Police are still investigating the matter and no charges have been filed against Slater yet.
"She basically said he [Slater] approached her and asked her to go to his room," Oliver's laywyer said. "She said no. He started telling her she was pretty and those type things. The next thing you know she was in a chokehold, and he was dragging her and bending her backward, trying to get her on the elevator to his room. She violently had to struggle to get his arm from around her neck."
The woman, who is still employed by Allied Barton security, immediately told her supervisor. After months of inaction by her bosses, the woman filed a police report on June 22nd. Her lawyer says she contacted police after supervisors told her for months they were going to handle it.

SmackDown results: The best thing going? By: Michael Burdick August 12, 2011 Tags: SmackDown: Aug. 12, 2011 SACRAMENTO, Calif. – With just two days before SummerSlam, a new Intercontinental Champion was crowned on SmackDown and World Heavyweight Champion Christian may very well have discovered the way to overcome Randy Orton at The Biggest Event of the Summer.
Randy Orton def. The Great Khali (WATCH | PHOTOS) In a classic story of David and Goliath, Randy Orton locked horns with The Great Khali. And in the end, The Viper hurled his metaphoric stone at The Punjabi Nightmare – in the form of a debilitating RKO – covering the gigantic Superstar for the victory.
Immediately following the match, World Heavyweight Champion Christian interrupted the celebration to taunt his No. 1 contender with some information he said he just received. Whatever the mysterious information was, he proclaimed that “it was going to change everything” at SummerSlam, Christian claimed he can’t wait for their No Holds Barred Match – where “anything goes.” With a smile, he added that “I have the best thing going.”
What does Christian have up his sleeve come this Sunday at SummerSlam? (Match preview)
Mark Henry def. Johnny Curtis (WATCH | PHOTOS) Johnny Curtis – winner of WWE NXT season four – was decimated by Mark Henry in his debut match – in an all-out slaughter that culminated with the World’s Strongest Slam. But, as the irate Henry looked to continue his attack after the bell, Sheamus charged to the ring after him. Not wanting to wait for their impending showdown at SummerSlam (Match preview), The Celtic Warrior challenged his enraged foe to fight him right then and there. Instead, Henry chose to make his own statement of force, hitting a second World’s Strongest Slam on Curtis outside the ring.
Cody Rhodes def. Intercontinental Champion Ezekiel Jackson to become new Intercontinental Champion (WATCH | PHOTOS) After numerous head butts with his protective face mask and a key distraction by his associate Ted DiBiase, Cody Rhodes executed a fierce springboard kick on Ezekiel Jackson. The bitter Superstar then finished off his decorated opponent with the Cross Rhodes, pinning his shoulders to the canvas to become the new Intercontinental Champion.
With the newly-acquired title firmly in his grasp, Rhodes instructed DiBiase to put a bag on the head of his fallen predecessor. But, when The Personification of Domination awoke, Cody made a quick exit, leaving the oblivious DiBiase to take the brunt of his wrath.
Alberto Del Rio def Daniel Bryan (WATCH | PHOTOS) For the first time ever, the current holders of the Raw and SmackDown Money in the Bank briefcases squared-off against each other. And in the pinnacle of the high-stakes encounter, Bryan missed his mark off the top rope, allowing Del Rio to lock in the cross armbreaker for the win.
After the match, Wade Barrett emerged, hitting the war torn Daniel Bryan with Wasteland. (Bryan vs. Barrett at SummerSlam) (Bryan speaks out in "Year of the 'Dragon'")
Sin Cara def. Tyson Kidd (WATCH | PHOTOS) Reemerging sooner than medical experts indicated he might, the gravity-defying Sin Cara leaped back onto the scene with increased muscle and a fresh arsenal of maneuvers. Utilizing incredible athletic prowess, the high-flyer triumphed over Tyson Kid.
Beth Phoenix & Natalya def. A.J. & Kaitlyn (WATCH | PHOTOS) Beth Phoenix and Natalya punished Kaitlyn and A.J. from the opening bell, with The Fabulous Firebird quickly finishing off the “spitfire” A.J. with the devastating Glam Slam. After the match, the self-proclaimed “Divas of Doom” continued the attack on their fallen opponents, leading Natalya to lock Kaitlyn in the Sharpshooter as The Glamazon enjoyed her screams. Can Divas Champion Kelly Kelly withstand the divine dominance of Beth Phoenix this Sunday as SummerSlam? (Match preview)
Sheamus def. World Heavyweight Champion Christian by Count-out (WATCH | PHOTOS) Sensing that he was in real jeopardy of losing a match just two days before he will attempt to defend his title against Randy Orton at SummerSlam, the slippery Christian thrust Sheamus’ neck over the top rope, temporarily taking down the only Irish-born former WWE Champion. The World Heavyweight Champion quickly grabbed the World Title and high-tailed it up the ramp, forcing the referee to count him out.
Christian dropped his lawsuit against WWE and will compete at SummerSlam (WATCH | PHOTOS) Gearing up to serve as the Special Guest Referee in the blockbuster SummerSlam main event to decide the Undisputed WWE Champion (match preview), WWE’s Chief Operating Officer Triple H journeyed to SmackDown. Pledging to continue to make WWE exciting and unpredictable, he announced a slew of explosive SmackDown match-ups for later in the show.
Christian then emerged to inform Triple H that putting him in a career-threatening No Holds Barred Match at SummerSlam against the “mentally unstable” Randy Orton was creating an unsafe work environment for him. He threatened that if WWE’s COO didn't remove that stipulation from the World Title showdown, he was going sue WWE and just about everybody else associated with the event. But, when Triple H threatened to fire him for breach of contract and take back the World Title, Christian opted to drop the lawsuit. He pledged instead to defeat Randy Orton at SummerSlam (match preview) and whomever Triple H puts him in a match with tonight. That Superstar … would be Sheamus.
CM Punk Says Rock's Shtick Is Corny, Change in WWE Posted by Steve Carrier on 08/11/2011 at 08:37 PM
- WWE Champion CM Punk spoke with Mark Madden on his Pittsburgh radio show this past Monday to promote SummerSlam. Punk was asked if he now has creative control in WWE. Punk said he doesn't like that term and said control is bad. He noted that he has input now but added that everyone always has input. Madden asked Punk if things have really change in WWE or if it's just another McMahon being the star of the show.
"I think things aren't going to change over night," Punk said. "A few little things have already changed. Just the face they're listening to different people is a step in the right direction. It's going to take a while. Obviously I'm one who's an advocate for any kind of change. Getting guys like Zack Ryder on TV is a step in the right direction. He's entertaining, that's the bottom line. Is he going to main event WrestleMania this year? No. Maybe he will in a couple of years, you never know. I'm just happy what little change has been implemented thus far has been implemented."
Punk says people have been making comparisons to what's happening now and the Attitude Era but added that he isn't trying to fill Steve Austin's shoes. Punk is trying to do something completely different - make it fun again, he said. Punk said he hopes he is making everyone tune in next week to see what's going on because that's his goal.
Regarding John Cena, Punk acknowledged that he has said some nasty things about his SummerSlam opponent but put him over as someone who loves what he does and a hard worker for WWE. Punk said everything he has said about "Dwayne" is absolutely 100% true.
"I'm in a position now where I think I can call guys out on it," Punk said about The Rock. "I have no personal problems against Dwayne. It's very frustrating being here and watch a guy come in and get credit for a WrestleMania buyrate when he didn't do anything on the show. He certainly didn't do anything entertaining. There's a line he crossed at some point where I think he is just as out of touch as the Vince McMahons and everybody else. I'm not calling Rock old, he's still obviously a young physical fit guy but his ideas are old and his shtick is corny in my opinion. Hopefully when my ideas are old and my shtick is corny, there's some young punk that's going to call me out on it. Hopefully Dwayne takes it as, "ok when I come here I have to step it up", and hopefully he does."
Update on Future of Sin Cara and WWE Concerns Posted by Steve Carrier on 08/11/2011 at 08:35 PM
- Super Luchas is reporting that Mistico has left WWE and Hunico was told he would be working as Sin Cara at the WWE Mexico tapings in October.
Sources are claiming two different stories. One, that Hunico will play Sin Cara until the original Cara can return and then they will feud. The other is that Mistico is not being brought back after all and Hunico will remain as Sin Cara.
There are people within WWE, and that work with WWE on promotions, that are waiting for a final word from company officials on the future of the Sin Cara character going forward. They are worried that the new person playing Sin Cara will be pushed and not get over like Mistico. If they merchandise him for big plans down the line, it could turn out that they have backed a dud.
Within Mexico, people are worried that fans will see the new Sin Cara as a fraud. Many of WWE's licensees saw huge money in Sin Cara merchandise aimed at the Mexican market.
Impact starts things off with Immortal. Bully Ray calls Abyss soft. He announces a BFG series match tonight with him, Scott Stiener and Gunner vs. Crimson in a four-way. Ray and Mr. Anderson start fighting and Anderson gets beat down by Immortal, including Abyss. Anderson was taken away on a stretcher.
Mickie James beat Madison Rayne in a #1 contender’s match.
Brian Kendrick beat Robbie E. to retain the X Division Title. Austin Aries was on commentary.
Beer Money beat AJ Styles & Rob Van Dam plus the team of Brother Devon and The Pope in a BFG Series match. Roode got the points as he pinned Pope. Daniels was on commentary.
Kurt Angle comes out and talks about his win over Sting at the PPV. Angle apologized for hitting Sting with the chair. Angle did what he had to do and won’t ever let Dixie Carter get TNA back because she lied to him in the past. Sting met Angle on the ramp but was attacked by Hulk Hogan from behind with a chair. Hogan continued to beat Sting as Angle looked on.
Miss Tessmacher and Tara beat ODB and Miss Jackie.
They show a Vignette for new TNA star Jessie Godderz of Big Brother fame, known as Mr. Pec-Tacular. He brags about how good he looks, cuts in front of other wrestlers at catering and flirts with the Knockouts.
Karen and Jeff Jarrett come out. Jarrett is wearing a sombrero and has his AAA Heavyweight Title. Jarrett brought out two Mexican custodians and insulted them before beating them up. They couldn’t speak English back to Jarrett but eventually said “Guerrero” which led to Jarrett attacking them. Hector Guerrero came to the ring from the Spanish announce table to help them as Jarrett left.
Crimson beat Bully Ray, Scott Steiner and Gunner in a Bound For Glory Series four-way. After the bout, Kurt Angle came down and attacked Crimson to end the show.
"I enjoyed my time there. I was a little bit disappointed with the progression of the character because we started out where I wanted to go - and I laid out how I wanted this character to start and develop - because I believe a character should grow. Every character evolves and I wanted this character to evolve. That was the understanding…When you work for a company, you can't get everything you want. You have to compromise. And I compromised with the character on what they wanted and that was part of the deal. That was a hard thing. That was a challenge. Trying to do what I wanted and trying to give what I wanted the way I knew it could be delivered and then also what the company wanted to present - that was a challenge there. In the end, I was a little bit disappointed in that area and stuff
I'm a professional and I'm a performer. So I'm always willing to do something different and that was the attempt. Like I said, you have to compromise and stuff like that. But when you compromise, you start to lose the direction. That's where it headed. Eventually, I had to make decisions and if it wasn't headed in the direction I wanted, I had to make decisions…I know they said I was released, but I had made a series of inquires to TNA about things and - I got released on a Monday - that Friday (before), I had actually called the TNA office and said, "Look. I need something to happen and I'm not happy and I need to be able to do more things." The person I talked to wasn't really in the position, I don't think, to do anything. So I left my piece of mind and then I was granted my release on Monday. So that's what happened. Was I upset? No. Not at all. I was very content with how things went out and we parted on good terms and everything".
Regarding the possibility of Melina going to TNA, she had a fan in Bruce Prichard when they both were working for WWE. Prichard now works as the head of talent relations for TNA so it's possible she could be offered a deal. No word yet if TNA is interested in any of the other recently released WWE talents.
Former WWE Superstar Chris Masters joined Chris & Nick Live on vow live, discussing his recent release from WWE and what may be next for him. In the interview, he spoke about the possibility of going to TNA:
I was already thinking to myself, maybe I need to start reaching out and seeing what else is out there – let’s just be frank. But I didn’t do it. And it’s funny because then you fast forward to weeks later and then this happened. Obviously, I’m taking bookings, but yeah, I’ve reached out to some people over at TNA and we’ll just see what happens with that. There’s of course the 90 day thing with WWE, but I’m not really going to rule out anything this time around.

Matt Striker starts the show in front of a table and a bowl of eggs with three spoons. He announced that there will be an egg relay contest. Darren Young cuts him off and says that he wasn't here to play an egg relay contest. Striker ignores his outburst and continues to carry on the introductions, until Young cuts him off again and says that he can't cut it in the ring.
Striker simply replied that he's happy doing what he's doing right now, and that Young shouldn't worry on his past, instead to worry on his own future. After that verbatim, Young clocks Striker in the face, and leaves after challenging him to a match.
Backstage, Tyson Kidd was asked to comment about facing Justin Gabriel. Kidd then went on to saying that he was the greatest graduate of the Hart Dungeon, and that he was better than all the legends that came before him out of the esteemed Dungeon. He then concluded by saying that he would show Gabriel why he's the best tonight.
Justin Gabriel versus Tyson Kidd: Very strong match, very good opener. Lots of back-and-forth action, with the added caveat that both Kidd and Gabriel elevated their game to new heights. After a 15-minute match that saw both kidd and Gabriel throw everything but the kitchen sink, Gabriel hits an STO, followed by his signature 450 Splash for the win.
Darren Young versus Matt Striker: This match was disatrous, for the simple fact that it demonstrated how out-of-shape Matt Striker is against Darren Young. After bleeding from the nose, he hits a Gory Bomb. That was the only highlight he made in the match, as it turns out to be not enough. Young scores a neckbreaker off the apron, an overhead belly-to-belly suplex which led to Striker bleeding, and scored a win by hitting his modified full nelson facebuster.
Daniel Bryan, current SmackDown Money in the Bank winner, encounters his protege, Derrick Bateman... playing a WWE video game. This led to some stern lecturing from Bryan to Bateman, telling him that Bateman's making a fool of himself. He ended his speech by saying that if Bateman didn't figure out who he is, that he's on his own.
Titus O'Neil (with Hornswoggle and AJ) versus Derrick Bateman: Even though Bateman got that stern talking from Bryan, it did him no good in a match that generally stunk. Bateman's only offense consisted of a dropkick and a failed sunset flip attempt that gave O'Neil the opportunity to roll him up for the win. Bateman then attacks O'Neil after the match. He chased after Hornswoggle, with AJ watching on. Hornswoggle escapes Bateman, which led to O'Neil catching Bateman with his Clash of the Titus spinebuster. The assault on Bateman ended with Hornswoggle scoring a tadpole splash. The show ends with AJ, Hornswoggle and O'Neil smiling in the ring.
- Triple H is serious on introducing new talents through vignettes and promos. It’s also being said that Triple H is interested in reviving the WWE Tag Team division. Word is that they are really starting to recruit tag teams and see if some names are under contract to other promotions.
There has been talk internally about The Brisco Brothers but they are signed to Ring of Honor. There has also been a lot of talk about TNA’s Beer Money and bringing them in once they are able to get away from TNA.
Regarding the Kings of Wrestling – Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli coming, the talk is that they will indeed be brought in together as a tag team and not singles wrestlers.
- A fan wrote to Gail Kim on Twitter and said he thought WWE signed her just to bury the competition after her great run in TNA. Gail responded: "but according 2 them (WWE), there is no competition. And if so,then why care about what happens to talent they don't use or want anyway?"
Gail also wrote that she likes Triple H but that "Vince McMahon is still in charge."

Credit to PWTorch.com for this live report of what happened after RAW went off the air:

WWE champion John Cena vs. WWE champion C.M. Punk ended in a Double DQ when Truth and Miz ran in. Cena and Miz used the Attitude Adjustment and GTS to send them packing. The two champions stared each other down in the ring and raised their belts. Cena exited, staring Punk down from the ramp. Punk left the ring and the night ended.

Raw results: Hostile negotiations By: Ryan Murphy August 8, 2011 Tags: Raw: August 8, 2011 SAN JOSE — With only six days to go before WWE Champion John Cena faces WWE Champion CM Punk for the Undisputed WWE Championship at SummerSlam, Triple H made it clear that there will be only one titleholder at the end of the night. The lengths WWE’s new COO went to tonight in order to guarantee a fair outcome shocked the entire WWE Universe.
WWE Champion John Cena and WWE Champion CM Punk signed the contract for their Undisputed WWE Title Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) The WWE Universe expected a tense confrontation in this contract signing and that’s exactly what they got. Mediated by Triple H and WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis, the summit started off ugly when CM Punk showed a video of The Rock bashing John Cena on Facebook. Tearing The Champ’s catchphrases and clothing to shreds, The Great One made a hilarious mockery of the powerful Superstar.
It was a damning monologue, but one Cena took in stride. After all, The Champ realized some people may have a problem with him, but he’s always been more concerned with the fans that are in his corner. Since 2002, the WWE Champion has been a proud and hardworking Superstar who gives every bit of his energy to positively representing the company. And while Cena was busting his hump, Punk was off complaining that he didn’t get fair treatment.
It was a strong argument that Triple H respected, but The Second City Saint was quick to strike back. Accusing The Champ of being a failed bodybuilder who settled for a career as a sports-entertainer, Punk claimed that he worked harder to get to where he is than Cena ever could. On Sunday, The Straight Edge Superstar would prove this by beating his rival in the center of the ring.
Undeterred, Cena made it clear that if Punk fails on Sunday he’ll be nothing more than a one hit wonder. With tensions now at a boil, both Superstars agreed that the talking had gone on long enough and stood face-to-face. But when Punk took a swing at The Champ, he connected with Mr. Laurinaitis instead. It was a melee from there with Punk and Cena brawling in the ring while the COO attempted to pull them apart.
When The Game finally got some order, the tattooed titleholder stood on the outside of the ring looking in at Triple H and The Champ. In that unique moment, there were two WWE Champions. Come Sunday, there will be only one.
R-Truth def. John Morrison (WATCH | PHOTOS) After spending more than three months on the sidelines with a serious neck injury, John Morrison finally had the opportunity to go one-on-one with the man who put him there — R-Truth.
Looking to get a receipt on the dangerous Superstar, The Guru of Greatness came at Truth with a flurry of unpredictable offense — even leaping out of the ring onto his opponent. It was a thrilling effort from Morrison, but JoMo is clearly still trying to find his feet following his injury. By targeting the neck, Truth was able to debilitate his adversary and win the bout.
Alex Riley def. United States Champion Dolph Ziggler by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) Some guys just don’t know how to take criticism. Furious with Alex Riley’s suggestion that he drop Vickie Guerrero and succeed on his own merit, Dolph Ziggler was ready to make A-Ry regret his remarks tonight. Bringing the fight to Riley, the brash Superstar seemed destined for victory, but Vickie interfered in the action before either man could triumph.
The loudmouth’s intrusion led to the official giving Riley the win via disqualification. Clearly irritated with the loss, Ziggler bickered with his associate after the bout before the cougar stormed away from the ring in a rage.
Beth Phoenix def. Eve (WATCH | PHOTOS) Last Monday night, Beth Phoenix shocked the WWE Universe when she brutalized Divas Champion Kelly Kelly after winning a battle royal to become the No. 1 contender to the beauty’s title. Tonight, she made it clear that the attack was no accident.
After smashing the talented Eve, The Glamazon grabbed the microphone and again stated that the era of pretty Divas dominating WWE is over. Yet, just as Beth made her way to the locker room, she was cracked out of nowhere by a fiery Kelly Kelly.
Not one to be intimidated, the gorgeous competitor is definitely ready for Sunday’s showdown with the powerful Glamazon.
WWE Champion CM Punk def. Alberto Del Rio (WATCH | PHOTOS) Irate, but unsurprised by Triple H’s announcement earlier in the evening, CM Punk stated that the COO would be wise to stay out of his way at SummerSlam. But, for now, The Straight Edge Superstar was focused on an immediate challenge — Alberto Del Rio.
Following Cena’s victory over Swagger, Punk knew he had to come up big in his match against The Mexican Aristocrat. After all, how would it look if the controversial competitor was beaten mere days before the biggest bout of his career? Rising to the occasion, Punk was vicious against the Money in the Bank winner, picking Del Rio apart with blistering strikes before putting him to bed with the Go To Sleep. If Cena sent Punk a message before, “the voice of the voiceless” responded here.
The Miz def. Kofi Kingston (WATCH | PHOTOS) What was supposed to be a rematch between Rey Mysterio and The Miz quickly spiraled out of control when The Awesome One brutally attacked his rival before Mysterio even had a chance to enter the ring. (WATCH) It was an audacious assault, but The Miz didn’t have much time to gloat as Triple H immediately sent word that the smug Superstar would now face Kofi Kingston.
Before The Cleveland Screamer could protest, The Dreadlocked Dynamo launched himself at his opponent, battering The Miz with his patented controlled frenzy. The rapid attack was nearly too much for the former WWE Champion to handle, but the devious Superstar survived, nailing the Skull-Crushing Finale out of nowhere for the win.
WWE Champion John Cena def. Jack Swagger (WATCH | PHOTOS) John Cena isn’t the type of competitor who cracks under pressure. Moments after trading strong words with the special guest referee in his Undisputed WWE Championship Match against CM Punk at SummerSlam, The Champ had to lock up with the always dangerous Jack Swagger.
A standout collegiate wrestler and former World Heavyweight Champion, “The All-American American” is not a Superstar to be taken lightly, but Cena didn’t let his opponent’s pedigree intimidate him. Battering the big man before putting him down with an Attitude Adjustment, the West Newbury, Mass.-native sent a clear message to both Punk and Triple H — The Champ is here.
Triple H announced a special guest referee for the SummerSlam main event (WATCH | PHOTOS) With only six days to go before one of the most important nights in WWE history, Triple H dropped another bomb on the WWE Universe — the Undisputed WWE Championship Match between WWE Champion John Cena and WWE Champion CM Punk will have a special guest referee.
Believing that a bout of this magnitude is too important to risk outside interference or underhanded maneuvers, WWE’s Chief Operating Officer revealed that he’s enlisted the help of the one man he knows who can get the job done right — himself.
As if that wasn’t enough to stir up the WWE Universe, Triple H then announced that Cena and Punk will sign their SummerSlam contract tonight.
Former TNA knockout Gail Kim has caused quite a stir recently with her resignation from the WWE. Now she gives a bit more insight on the current situation of her release on her Official Twitter Page:
I quit last Monday. And apparently after a total of five years of working for a company where I was not utilized or appreciated, I am now, for some reason, valuable enough to keep me under the remainder of my contract so I can't worse elsewhere. Controlling?

In the end, in a shocking turn of events, Hulk Hogan came to the ring with a steel chair and loaded up to nail Sting, but Angle took it away from him! In turn Kurt used the chair himself to bash Sting and hit his Angle Slam! The referee counted 1-2-3, with Kurt Angle becoming the NEW World Heavyweight Champion to the shock of everyone watching! How will Angle explain his actions on Thursday's IMAPCT WRESTLING? How will the maniacal Sting react?!
