WWE.com Exclusive: One More Match? Really, Christian?
By: Joey StylesSeptember 16, 2011
Following SmackDown Friday night, WWE TV announcer Matt Striker caught up with former two-time World Heavyweight Champion Christian to get his thoughts on the now-rocky relationship with his former best friend Edge. Captain Charisma, called Captain Crybaby by some detractors, brushed aside the subject of Edge. Instead, the Toronto native shamelessly promoted his twitter account @Christian4Peeps and called on the WWE Universe to start a twitter campaign to make him the No. 1 contender to the winner of the Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry World Heavyweight Title Match at Night of Champions #OneMoreMatch.
WWE.com attempted to tally the number of opportunities Christian has already had to compete for the World Heavyweight Championship. Unfortunately, our calculators only go up to eight digits.
•Daniel Bryan def. Sin Cara (Disqualification) •Beth Phoenix def A.J. •Sheamus & Justin Gabriel def. Christian & Wade Barrett •The Great Khali def. Heath Slater (Disqualification) •R-Truth def. WWE Tag Team Champion Evan Bourne
SmackDown results: Mark Henry unleashed ‘Cutting Edge’ chaos By: Michael Burdick September 16, 2011 Tags: SmackDown: September 16, 2011 TORONTO – As Night of Champions prepares to unleash itself on the WWE Universe, “The Cutting Edge” – hosted by a returning Edge – descended into an all-out brawl between World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton and his enraged No. 1 contender Mark Henry.
“The Cutting Edge” turned into pandemonium (WATCH | PHOTOS) Through his assistant Zack Ryder, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long made it clear to both World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton and Mark Henry that there was to be “no contact” between them while appearing as special guests on “The Cutting Edge.” The SmackDown GM decreed that if there was any physicality, their World Heavyweight Championship Match at Night of Champions would be called off.
Returning to SmackDown in heroic style, the incomparable Edge questioned both Superstars about their ability to defeat each other this Sunday. While Henry insisted that 15 years of aggression was building up to the moment when the World Title would finally be his in just two days, Orton made it clear that after the pay-per-view was over, Henry would still be the “World’s Strongest Failure.”
As tensions reached a fever pitch, The Ultimate Opportunist reminded his guests about the SmackDown’s GM “no contact” decree during his show. However, as he exited the ring, he declared “The Cutting Edge” to be officially over, lighting the fuse to Henry and Orton’s extremely explosive physical confrontation.
As Orton and Henry began to unload on each other, Long sent out a sea of WWE Superstars to break them up. This did little good, as both WWE’s Apex Predator and The World’s Strongest Man broke loose in the bedlam and immediately reengaged each other. Henry eventually gained the advantage, throwing Superstars from the ring and crushing the World Heavyweight Champion with two massive splashes. Holding the World Title high above his head, the infuriated No. 1 contender prophesized what could very well be Randy Orton’s fate at Night of Champions. (MATCH PREVIEW)
R-Truth def. WWE Tag Team Champion Evan Bourne (WATCH | PHOTOS) As they came to the ring, R-Truth and The Miz mocked both the WWE Universe and Toronto by performing a “remix” of Truth’s rap song “What’s Up!” entitled “You Suck!” Then, with Miz and Kofi Kingston joining the SmackDown announce team, Truth overcame his opponent, avoiding Air Bourne before catching the high-flying opponent with a quick blow. In the same week, both Truth and Miz beat the WWE Tag Team Champions in singles competition. Have they garnered enough momentum to dethrone Kingston & Bourne this Sunday at Night of Champions? (MATCH PREVIEW)
The Great Khali def. Heath Slater by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) As Jinder Mahal screamed at The Great Khali in Punjabi from outside the ring, Heath Slater attempted to take advantage of the distraction. Though The Punjabi Nightmare regained the advantage, Mahal quickly joined the assault, giving Khali the win by disqualification. Ultimately, the gigantic Superstar overcame the double team, causing Mahal to flee before executing a crushing Punjabi Plunge on The One Man Southern Rock Band.
Sheamus & Justin Gabriel def. Christian & Wade Barrett (WATCH | PHOTOS) After escaping Wade Barrett’s Wasteland, Sheamus blasted the English Superstar with the Brogue Kick, paving the road for Justin Gabriel to reign supreme with the 450 Splash. Following the match, The Celtic Warrior invited Christian back in the ring, but the former World Heavyweight Champion would not take the bait..
Beth Phoenix def A.J. (WATCH | PHOTOS) With her fellow Diva of Doom Natalya in tow, Beth Phoenix – the No. 1 contender to the Divas Championship – absolutely dominated the self-professed “Geek Goddess” A.J. After the match, The Glamazon sent a powerful message to Divas Champion Kelly Kelly and the rest of WWE’s “Cinderellas” “At Night of Champions,” she said, “the clock will strike midnight and the fairytale will be over.” (MATCH PREVIEW)
Daniel Bryan def. Sin Cara by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) In very a personal match, the ultra-aggressive Sin Cara went too far with his unrelenting attack on Daniel Bryan – continuing his assault after his opponent got trapped upside-down in the turnbuckle. This left the referee no choice but to call for the bell and award the match to Bryan by disqualification.
However, when the punishment continued after the bell, a second Sin Cara suddenly emerged, leaping into the ring to the same music and the same exact look! Staring each other down in the middle of the ring, the dual Sin Caras left the WWE Universe in a storm of uncertainly as to just what is going on and who is who.
Edge returned to SmackDown; Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes got ambushed by Ted DiBiase (WATCH | PHOTOS) An emotional Edge returned home to both SmackDown and Toronto, informing the WWE Universe that he would host “The Cutting Edge” later in the show with special guests World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton and Mark Henry. However, The Master Manipulator was promptly interrupted by Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes, who simultaneously insulted The Rated-R Superstar and reminded the WWE Universe of his monumental triumph over The Viper on a the RawSuperShow four days earlier.
Edge humiliated the infuriated Rhodes, walking out on him before he “fell asleep.” This caused the irate Intercontinental Champion to launch into a tirade on the WWE Universe. However, as he was proclaiming whose face should be covered up first, a disguised Ted DiBiase – wearing one of Rhodes’ paper bags – suddenly knocked him off his feet from the front row. Shaking with rage, DiBiase pulled off his cover and jumped the barricade, dishing out an onslaught on his adversary that culminated in Dream Street. Though Rhodes escaped before he, too, was covered by a paper bag, DiBiase’s successful retribution brought the WWE Universe to its feet.
As reported earlier today, WWE has signed former ROH star Claudio Castagnoli.
Castagnoli, one half of the ROH tag team “The Kings of Wrestling” (along with Chris Hero), has reported to WWE developmental and will be known as “Antonio Cesaro.”
Cesaro has already changed his Twitter account to reflect his new name (@AntonioCesaro) and his Twitter account description reads:
“The official twitter of Very European Antonio Cesaro. Swiss world traveler, FCW Superstar and coffee connoisseur. Universal European Uppercut Master”
At this time, there’s no word on the WWE status of Chris Hero. Both men impressed WWE officials during their tryouts and the most recent talk was that they’d be brought in together as a tag team.
Back in July, Cesaro was interviewed by Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas for the Right After Wrestling radio show and had this to say about going to WWE without his ROH tag team partner Chris Hero:
“I think I would prefer to go as a package with Chris Hero. But I would be comfortable working there on my own. We have a the unique ability to perform in a singles environment and in a tag environment. I think we definitely have very good chemistry and we have greater potential as a team.”
We kick off the show with a video looking back at this past weekend’s No Surrender PPV, featuring Bobby Roode’s victory in the Bound For Glory Series and Kurt Angle retaining the World Title thanks to the help of Hulk Hogan. We then head to the ring in the Impact Zone for our opening promo hyping a match that will happen for the first time in over a decade.
Ric Flair comes out to the ring and demands Sting come down to the ring to talk to him one last time before their match tonight. Sting comes out and Flair says he wants back in the limelight like before, he promised Hogan he’d beat him and Sting will only get to Hogan over his dead body. Sting says if that’s the way it is, then Flair’s going to die tonight. He tells Flair to take his robe off and go right now, but Flair is hesitant. Security runs out to separate them and Sting’s music hits as Flair tells Sting he lucked out again. Flair heads to the back as security continues to hold Sting back.
Jeff Hardy is arriving at the Impact Zone and we’ll find out what he wants…NEXT!
Jeff Hardy is backstage saying he’s glad to be back and have the chance to apologize to everyone. The first step toward getting there was last week in Huntsville, and tonight is the second step when he starts to prove himself to the wrestlers and fans.
Time to head to the ring for our opening match…
Mexican America vs Devon, The Pope, Brooke Tessmacher & Tara
Pope makes sure to say hello to Devon’s kids on the way to the ring as Tessmacher tears her shirt off and does a little mini-strip show. Devon and Hernandez start us off and start there blabbing at each other until Devon comes off the ropes and takes Hernandez out with a flying shoulderblock. Anarquia and Pope come in next and Pope hits a bunch of atomic drops and a flying shoulderblock of his own. Sarita comes in and grabs Pope from the outside, allowing Anarquia and Hernandez to suckerpunch him and take the advantage. It only lasts a moment before Pope makes the tag to Devon, who comes in and cleans house. Devon with a spinebuster and the girls wind up in a track meet before the Mexicanas decide to stop and hit on Devon’s sons. Devon’s kids get all into it, but all hell breaks loose with Devon and Pope knocking Hernandez and Anarquia to the floor while Brooke and Tara hit simultaneous rollups and pin Sarita and Rosita.
Winners: Devon, The Pope, Brooke Tessmacher & Tara
Karen is backstage admiring a giant poster of herself, and Traci Brooks comes in to get a tongue lashing from Karen, who took a whole six minutes to get there. Karen tells her to cover up her boobs, and Traci asks her if she’s jealous, and Karen says no because she doesn’t show her stuff off like a five and dime ho. Karen tells Traci to get the Knockouts in there and she has five minutes.
Okay, we’re back from commercial and all the Knockouts are in the dressing room with Karen. Karen says Mickie’s not getting her rematch and she’s done, and as for the rest of them, they’re going to have three matches in the Queen’s Challenge. She asks if they know who the queen is, and Madison says it’s HER!!!! Madison puts her tiara on Karen’s head, then says it’s going to be Mickie James vs Miss Tessmacher, Tara vs Madison Rayne, and Velvet Sky vs Angelina Love, with the winner challenging Winter at Bound For Glory.
We head out to the ring where Fortune is in the ring (hey, Kazarian does still work here!), and AJ introduces the winner of the Bound For Glory Series and the new #1 contender for the World Title, Bobby Roode! Roode comes out to the ring and AJ acknowledges what Roode accomplished by winning the series, and the crowd started chanting “next World Champ” at Roode,and AJ says to listen to the fans because he earned it and it’s going to happen. Daniels says the way Roode won the series was as inspirational as when he beat AJ in Huntsville. They all believe in him and he needs to believe in himself the way he did when he beat AJ. Kazarian says they’ve watched each other’s back and made this place, but they have individual goals as well. Kazarian doesn’t blow smoke, but nobody deserves to be champion more than Roode. Storm says Bobby Roode, future World Champion has a nice ring to it, and all the nights they rode the roads together and Roode’s been missing his family, it all comes down to the World Title match with Kurt Angle. He wishes it was him, but since it isn’t, he’s damn glad it’s Roode and he’s sorry about Roode’s damn luck.
Kurt Angle comes out with a big smile on his face and he tells Roode he’s right about what he accomplished, but he knows the rest of them are jealous of Roode because they all want that shot at the title. Since none of the rest of them want to tell Roode themselves, he’ll tell him. Because he has the power of the Hogan-Bischoff Regime, he’s booked Roode to face all the other members of Fortune in the weeks leading up to Bound For Glory. They can lie down for Roode if they want, but if they beat him then they’ll be at the top of the totem pole. Kazarian’s a lucky man because he’s up first tonight.
Eric Bischoff is backstage telling Kurt Angle what a great idea it was to book Fortune against Robert Roode and tells him it was a gold medal idea.
Back to the ring!
Queen’s Challenge Opening Round Match: Angelina Love vs Velvet Sky
Angelina jumps Velvet during her entrance while she’s shaking her ass, proving thatthere is a Knockout smart enough to figure that out. Angelina beats Velvet up around ringside and then throws her back into the ring, but Velvet hits a bulldog and Angelina rolls out to the floor as we go to commercial.
We’re back and Angelina is still beating Velvet up, putting the boots to her in the corner, but stops to play to the crowd and Velvet gets a quick rollup for 2. Angelina quickly kills her with a clothesline, then goes to a rear chinlock that Velvet escapes with a jawbreaker. Winter trips Velvet from the outside, and Angelina quickly pounces, choking her on the second rope and then distracting the referee so Winter can choke her as well. Back to the chinlock, then Angelina hits a nasty kneelift. Angelina tries to whip Angelina into Winter (who is on the apron), and Angelina stops short but Velvet dropkicks her and starts to rally. Winter goes to hit Velvet with the belt, but Velvet ducks and Winter knocks Angelina out. Velvet hits the Beauty-T (it’s like a DDT with a different name) and gets the win to advance.
Winner: Velvet Sky
Jeff Hardy comes to AJ in the locker room to apologize, but AJ doesn’t want to hear it because he worked his ass off for nine years and then Jeff comes out on one PPV and nearly destroys the whole thing. AJ says Jeff is risking taking money from his family, and he’s why people talk negative about TNA. He doesn’t think there’s a time or a place for Jeff to be around him, and then AJ turns his back as Jeff walks out with a regretful look on his face.
Hulk Hogan arrives backstage and sees Ric Flair and tells him this is the biggest day of both of their careers. REALLY?? Hogan says he has a plan, but Sting comes from behind, puts his arms around both of them, and says he has a plan too: he’s going to beat Flair and then get to Hogan at Bound For Glory. Sting leaves, so Hogan tells Flair to come with him so he can smarten him up. These promos just get more bizarre every week.
We now go to Crimson, who is with us by satellite from Brooklyn, as he talks about how Samoa Joe took him out and he’s happy for Bobby Roode, but it should have been him. Taz asks what the heat is with him and Joe, but everything you do has consequences and Joe made it personal, and he will pay. Mike Tenay asks when we can expect to see him back on Imapct, and Crimson says he’ll be back in two weeks.
Submission Match: Samoa Joe vs Matt Morgan
Joe attacks Morgan before the bell and unloads on him in the corner, but Morgan grabs him and tosses him into the corner where he destroys him with hard right hands and then the machine gun elbows. Joe goes down in the corner, so Morgan hits a running knee and then annihilates him with more vicious strikes. Joe gets a jawbreaker and sweeps his legs, then starts kicking at Morgan’s knee. Morgan gets in a couple of shots and comes off the ropes, but Joe wipes him out with a back elbow and goes to the Kokina Clutch. Morgan gets to the ropes and Joe breaks for some reason even though he didn’t have to since this is submissions only, and he pays for it when Morgan begins destroying him with more right hands and a discus clothesline. Morgan with a side suplex and a Michinoku Driver, then gets a sort of inverted triangle choke and Joe now goes to the ropes since it worked before even though it shouldn’t. Joe ducks the Carbon Footprint and tries a kick, Morgan catches the foot and goozles Joe, but Joe pulls the referee between them and thumbs Morgan in the eye. Joe with a double kneesmasher and then locks Morgan in the figure four until he taps.
Winner: Samoa Joe
Joe gives Morgan a “that’s right, bitch” look before grabbing his towel and walking off.
Kurt Angle walks into Frankie Kazarian’s locker room asking him if he’s ready because he’s looking for the next top contender after he beats Roode. He wants Kazarian to prove he’s the top guy in Fortune, and he’ll be waiting.
Devon is backstage telling Jeff Hardy that he’s been real with him for 12 years and they’ve been up and down the highway for 12 years, and he doesn’t care what anybody else thinks because he cares about Jeff and won’t turn his back on him, but he’ll be damned if Jeff throws it all away like that. He knows Jeff Hardy can be the showstopper and be the one that comes up like any other, and he needs Jeff to get it straight. He won’t turn his back on Jeff, he’ll grab him by the neck and throw him through the wall to get him on the straight and narrow, and asks Jeff if he knows what he’s saying. Jeff says he does, and Devon says that’s good because if he screws up this time, it’s over. Jeff starts to leave and Devon says that if Jeff needs him, he’s got Jeff’s back.
Time for our next match…
Bobby Roode vs Frankie Kazarian
Looks like Roode’s got some newtights. They tie up and do a feeling out process and end in a stalemate. They go again and Roode takes Kazarian down with a waistlock and goes to a front facelock. Kazarian reverses to a wristlock and Roode quickly armdrags him across the ring. Kazarian sweeps Roode’s leg and springboards off the ropes, but misses the legdrop so he tries a springboard DDT instead and Roode catches him and dumps him right into a northern lights suplex for 2. Kazarian takes Roode to the corner and unloads with a series of forearms, but Roode just stares at him beforefiringback with forearms of his own and then clotheslines Kazarian over the top rope to the floor. Roode goes out after Kazarian and tries to help him back to his feet, but Kazarian shoves himandthen decks him in the face. Kazarian rolls Roode into the ring and hits a slingshot legdrop for 2, then a side salto for another 2. Kazarian goes to a three quarter nelson, but Roode fights his way out and starts the babyface comeback. Roode with a Blockbuster for 2, Kazarian tries for the Blackout, but Roode slips out and traps Kazarian in the Crippler Crossface right in the middle of the ring and Kazarian has no choice but to tap.
Winner: Bobby Roode
Kurt Angle is backstage looking unhappy with the result of that match, then Roode tries to help Kazarian back to his feet and Kazarian walks away from him, then cools down and shakes Roode’s hand and tells him that he’s ready.
During the break, Kazarian is backstage telling Roode that it got physical out there because he wants to be in Roode’s spot, but Roode proved himself and they’ll do it again when it’s for the right reasons. Roode says he’s been ready for 13 years and it’s his time. We then go to Austin Aries, who says the X Division will become the A Double Division, and next week, he’ll make his first titme defense.
We run down some matches for next week, and then we go to comments from Jerry Lynn and Bully Ray. Lynn says RVD is gullible for not realizing what Lynn was doing getting him disqualified every week. He’s going to beat RVD’s brains in, and Bully Ray is going to put his chain through Anderson’s head when the two of them face Rob Van Dam and Ken Anderson next week.
It’s main event time!
Ric Flair vs Sting
The bell rings and we’re off. They tie up and Sting powers Flair across the ring, then comes off the ropes and takes Flair down with a shoulderblock. Another tie up and Flair goes to a wristlock and yanks Sting down by the hair. Sting tries a kip up and barely makes it, then takes Flair to the corner and breaks clean. Flair woos, Sting yells, then they trade hammerlocks. Flair with a drop toehold and floats over to a front facelock, but Sting reverses to a hammerlock and Flair goes to the ropes for a break. Flair shoves Sting and Sting knocks him on his butt with a slap to the face as we go to commercial. Because we want to interrupt the first Sting vs Flair match in a decade with a commercial!
We’re back, and Flair catches Sting coming into the corner with a back elbow and then tries to go up top, but we all know how that turns out. Sting tosses Flair, then clotheslines him over the top to ringside. Sting follows him out and Flair whips him into the rail, but Sting comes right back with a clothesline and then rolls Flair into the ring where he beats him down in the corner. Sting stops to argue with the referee and Flair does his trademark uppercut and Sting goes down in a heap. Flair picks him up and lays in some chops, but Sting fires back and goes up top in the corner for the 10 punch count. Sting whips Flair across the ring and goes for the Stinger Splash, but Flair dodges and Sting hits the corner hard, then Flair clips Sting’s knee. Flair gets the figure four, but Sting manages to reverse. Flair breaks, but goes right back after Sting’s knee and dishes out some more chops in the corner. Sting starts no-selling, so Flair pokes him in the eye and goes back up top, but Sting goes up after him and hits a superplex that a 63 year old man just should not be taking and covers for 2, then the rest of Immortal runs in and Sting takes care of them all until Hogan comes to ringside and distracts Sting. Bully Ray comes out of the crowd with a chain and stalks Sting, but Ken Anderson’s music hits and he chases Ray off with a chair as Hogan hands Flair a set of knucks. Flair knocks Sting out and goes for the cover, but Sting gets his shoulder up at 2. Flair goes back to more chops, but Sting no-sells, hits the Stinger Splash, Flair does the Flop, Sting looks out at Hogan and gets the Scorpion Deathlock, and Flair submits.
We see a closeup of Hogan at ringside yelling at Sting, we fade to black and that’s it.

Update on The Rock wrestling at Survivor Series Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 09/14/2011 at 06:39 PM
According to Bryan Alvarez, WWE officials are reportedly trying very hard to get The Rock to wrestle at the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
The original idea was for him to appear and do an angle but not wrestle until the match with John Cena at WrestleMania 28 but now they want him to wrestle in November. As noted before, there has also been discussion of doing a best of 3 series between the two.
Whether or not The Rock should wrestle or not at Survivor Series was a controversial topic of discussion within WWE this past week.
-It's time for the twenty-eighth week of NXT Redemption! The opening titles roll, and commentators Jack Korpela and William Regal welcome us from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
-Matt Striker is in the ring with a mic. He welcomes us to NXT Redemption. He said he'd normally be setting up a challenge, but what happened last night between William Regal, Darren Young, and NXT is really bothering him. He calls JTG and Young goons before JTG and Young interrupt.
-JTG says that hockey isn't even a real sport, which the crowd boos. Regal gets in the ring to even the confrontation out. JTG and Young get in the ring and face off against the two. JTG asks Striker if he really thinks Regal is better than him, which Striker says "Yes!" to. Regal chants start from the crowd. Regal asks Young and Striker to translate what JTG has been saying, since he couldn't understand a single word. JTG says that kind of disrespect is what he's been talking about. Darren says he keeps hearing that he doesn't respect the pros and superstars, but really, the past doesn't respect the future, No Days Off D-Young. Regal says he's been told that his body isn't in top shape, and he agrees with that, but when Young and JTG say he's washed up, that gets his attention. He asks how they'd feel if a washed up old man beat them half to death. Darren and JTG say that this match is happening tonight. Regal ends the promo by saying that the two of them need to remember that he's "Straight up gangsta trippin'!" and he and Striker run them out of the ring. Striker and Regal pose like gangstas as Young and JTG retreat up the ramp.

They use JTG's head as a battering ram, hitting Young where it hurts.

Regal forces Striker into the face corner and Striker is tagged back in. Striker hits a number of knees to Darren's head. Darren fights away and whips Striker, and while the referee is distracted, JTG kicks Striker in the back. Darren tags in JTG and hits a scoop slam on Striker. JTG hits some mounted punches on Striker and applies a chinlock. Jack Korpela is doing his best to act impartial and call the match, but Cole is being all too overbearing. JTG hits a short-arm clothesline on Striker for a two-count, before going back to a chinlock. Striker slowly gets to his feet and attempts a school boy, but JTG kicks out and hits a running knee to Striker's torso. Young is tagged in and gets Striker on the apron, before hitting a leg drop on Striker. Young rolls back into the ring and wrenches Striker's head back. Regal's calling for a hot tag as Young drags Striker away from his own corner and JTG tags in. Striker gets a quick punch to JTG's face, but JTG clubs Striker's back and applies a surfboard stretch. Striker gets to his feet and hits a jawbreaker. Both men get the tag and Regal hits an exploder suplex on Young. He forces Young into the corner and JTG tries to get involved, so Regal hits a flapjack. Young is down in the corner, so Regal tags in Striker. Striker hits the ropes and hits a big boot on Young. Striker hits the ropes again and hits a running face wash on Young in the corner. The pin attempt is broken up by JTG. Regal takes care of the interference, tossing JTG to the outside. Striker goes for what looks to be a backstabber, but Darren grabs the rope, staying on his feet. JTG slams Regal's head against the ring steps. Darren gets Striker from the ground straight to his shoulders and hits his stomachbreaker finisher to win the match.

WWE Raw SuperShow: Punk explodes on The Game
By: Greg Adkins September 12, 2011 Tags: WWE Raw SuperShow: September 12, 2011 OTTAWA, Ontario - CM Punk's "pipe bomb" may have been defused just six days before Night of Champions, but the situation between he and his opponent, Triple H, has grown more explosive than ever.
Triple H and CM Punk faced off before Night of Champions (WATCH |PHOTOS) Technical difficulties, audio problems, microphone malfunctions. Whatever you call it, CM Punk couldn’t seem to get a word in edgewise as he and Triple H engaged in a combustible verbal confrontation. The Second City Savior’s microphone suddenly shorted out just as he was about to express something he’d been dying to say to The Game. The scenario was reminiscent of Punk’s now famous diatribe against Triple H, Mr. McMahon and WWE when his mic also quit in the run up to SummerSlam.
A livid Punk cast his suspicions on WWE’s Chief Operating Officer, who had a working microphone in his hand. After watching one mic go belly up, The Game offered The Second City Savior his mic. Just as he revved up his verbal engine, though – you guessed it – the second mic failed on him as well. Triple H summoned a third mic from ringside and handed it over. Punk, however, used it to clobber The King of Kings before leaving the ring. While WWE’s COO seethed inside the square circle, his antiestablishment rival scowled back at him from the entrance ramp. The very personal animus between Punk and Triple H, who must resign as COO if he loses Sunday, is primed to blow in a No Disqualification Match at Night of Champions.
Hugh Jackman to appear as special guest star on the WWE Raw Supershow next week (WATCH | WWE.COM EXCLUSIVE: SNEAK PEEK) He’s one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, and next week Hugh Jackman will debut in one of his most exciting roles to date as special guest star on the WWE Raw Supershow. The star of the upcoming sci-fi action film Real Steel, Jackman will get the party started just one day after Night of Champions.
Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes def. World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton in a Non-title Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton has seen better days. The Viper entered into a rematch with Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes hoping to gain momentum going into Night of Champions. Instead, any drive Orton may have felt came to an alarming halt. As he battled Rhodes in the non-title match, his Night of Champions opponent, Mark Henry, pulled up a chair and watched from atop the entrance ramp. During the bout, though, The World’s Strongest Man began an ominous walk toward the ring. As the frightening figure drew closer, Orton took his eyes off the Intercontinental Champion, who cracked him in the skull with his face mask, causing The Viper to flatten on the canvas.
After Rhodes’ victory, Henry stalked into the ring and drove the steel chair upon which he was sitting onto Orton’s back. He then snatched the World Heavyweight Champion’s title and held it aloft, vowing to capture it from Orton this Sunday.
Divas Champion Kelly Kelly def. Vickie Guerrero (WATCH | PHOTOS) U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger could use a timeout. The petulant pair clashed as Dolph stood at ringside to support manager Vickie Guerrero in her match against Divas Champion Kelly Kelly. Unfortunately for Vickie, Swagger ran down and smacked his blond rival, distracting WWE’s resident cougar. As a result, the Divas Champion made easy work of her rival.
After the chaos cleared, Beth Phoenix marched to the ring and attempted to level an unsuspecting Kelly. The Divas Champion, however, nailed her Night of Champions adversary before she could attack.
John Cena & Bret Hart def. WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio & Ricardo Rodriguez (WATCH | PHOTOS) WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio may be gutless, but he’s not senseless. As he and his personal ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez faced off against John Cena & Bret Hart in a tag team match, The Mexican Aristocrat tucked tail and ran. Six days before facing Cena at Night of Champions, Del Rio tagged in Ricardo, who had entered the ring for his first-ever match, and scampered up the entrance ramp. Meanwhile, his hapless lackey suffered both an Attitude Adjustment and a painful Sharpshooter on his way to a team loss.
Jerry Lawler & Sheamus def. Michael McGillicutty & David Otunga (WATCH | PHOTOS) Since their defeat last week at the hands of Jerry “The King” Lawler & Zack Ryder, Michael McGillicutty & David Otunga have been eager for their rematch. That fervor turned to frustration after learning that Long Island Iced-Z could not compete thanks to Mark Henry, who rocked him on SmackDown. Instead, Lawler recruited someone less tan but a lot more intimidating: The Celtic Warrior. McGillicutty & Otunga were none too pleased when Sheamus emerged for the match – and with good reason. The ferocious Irishman dominated the former WWE Tag Team Champions, helping secure the win for himself and Lawler.
The Miz def. WWE Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston (WATCH | PHOTOS) The conspiracy continues – at least in the warped minds of R-Truth and The Miz. The two continued to vent about the supposed mistreatment they’ve received at the hands of WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H just before Miz entered the ring to tackle WWE Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston. With just six days until they and their respective partners square off at Night of Champions, The Cleveland Screamer and the leader of the Boom Squad hit the mat for an intense bout. As the other half of Air Boom, Evan Bourne, and his squirrely counterpart, Truth, looked on from ringside, Miz conquered Kofi when he hit the Skull Crushing Finale, putting the champions on notice for Sunday.
John Morrison & Alex Riley def. U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger (WATCH | PHOTOS) Vickie Guerrero has her hands full. In addition to United States Champion Dolph Ziggler, WWE’s resident cougar has recently been eyeing Jack Swagger as a client as well. Unfortunately for her, the two don’t play well with others. When they were teamed in a tag match against John Morrison & Alex Riley, the mistrust and jealousy was apparent. As they quarreled with each other, A-Ry & JoMo were quick to take advantage and nail down a win.
Later in the evening, an irate Vickie screeched as SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long informed her that Ziggler must defend his title in a Fatal 4-Way Match at Night of Champions against Swagger, Morrison and Riley.
WWE COO Triple H arranged tag team match (WATCH) WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio is fond of referring to himself as “the greatest of the great,” but as everyone knows, actions speak louder than words. So when The Mexican Aristocrat began gushing about himself, yet again, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart decided to mercifully intervene. On behalf of his fellow Canadians, “Hit Man” informed Del Rio that a true champion fights his own battles and doesn’t take advantage of an injured man. When Del Rio threatened Hart, his Night of Champions opponent, John Cena, thwarted his bravado. The moneyed Mexican then decided to arranged a match pitting Cena against … Ricardo Rodriguez! The Cenation Commander-in-Chief then insisted Del Rio compete against Hart.
Before the situation devolved into chaos, Mr. John Laurinaitis intervened. The Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, on behalf of Triple H, arranged a tag team match pitting WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio & Ricardo Rodriguez against John Cena & Bret Hart.
Not only that, later in the night, World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton will also take on Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes and Triple H will face off one last volatile time with CM Punk before their No Disqualification Match at Night of Champion.

John Laurinaitis issues a statement Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 09/10/2011 at 10:46 AM
WWE’s website has a new storyline article up looking at why John Laurinaitis was in the limousine with Kevin Nash on Monday’s RAW Supershow. Laurinaitis issued the following “statement” to WWE’s website:
“Kevin Nash is a friend of mine. We have a long history and I’m the one who hired him. I think the circumstances of Kevin’s firing are unfortunate, but ultimately, I don’t make the rules around here. [WWE Chief Operating Officer] Triple H does. As far as the conversation in that limo, as the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, I cannot disclose the nature of any private conversation with our talent in order to protect the integrity of the office. I respect the hell out of Kevin and I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
Gunner rips into internet wrestling fans Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 09/12/2011 at 12:26 PM
Gunner posted the following message on Twitter in response to criticism from fans:
"Amazing job from all Impact talent tonite! No Surrender was a success! SUCK IT DIRT SHEETS AND FAT COMPUTER MARKS AT HOME. Bobby Roode is one heck of a wrestler! Upset I lost tonite in the final 4 but my chances will rise again! I will claw my way back."
As we mentioned earlier, Former TNA wrestler Judas Mesias made his intentions clear that he wanted to face Sting's at the upcoming AAA pay per view. His wish has come true. He will be facing Sting in the upcoming Heroes Inmortales pay per view event.
Some websites have been reporting that TNA tag team The British Invasion are set to appear in AAA. This is not true at all. Only Magnus is scheduled to appear.
Abyss has been confirmed for the Heroes Inmortales pay per view
The following backstage segments were aired during AAA television hyping up both Sting, Abyss, Magnus and the upcoming pay per view. The videos contain racially charged words against certain hispanics ethnicities. Very strange that they would do this considering Konnan previously sued TNA citing racial discrimination. The both videos are in full english with spanish subtitles.

-Bound For Glory Series: (Newly added Match) Bully Ray used the same tactics he utilized early in the night with controlling the pace at the start of the match by going in and out of the ring. Roode seemed to be unaffected by Bully Ray’s chops and made his distaste for Bully Ray known which mentally got to Ray. Mind games continued between the two throughout the match. After Roode dropped a massive Spinebuster on Ray, Roode got the pin to become the #1 contender for the World Heavyweight Title.
-World Heavyweight Championship: At the beginning of the match Anderson and Sting worked together to take apart Angle. With Angle out of the ring Sting and Anderson faced off.

After Hogan interferes and sprays Sting’s eyes with something, Angle is able to take out a disoriented Sting with and Angle Slam and get the pin to retain the World Title.
