World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry def. Daniel Bryan by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) Even with Big Show in his corner, Daniel Bryan faced a formidable challenge in Mark Henry. But before a winner could be determined, Big Show inserted himself into the action, knocking out the champion with a vicious punch from behind. With the bout over due to disqualification – and Henry still down on the canvas – Show urged Bryan to cash in his Money in the Bank contract.
But Henry wasn’t going to let things go down like that.
As Show aided a groggy Bryan to the ring with his briefcase in tow, Henry began to come to. When Bryan rushed the champion with the briefcase, he fell victim to the World’s Strongest Slam. Next when Big Show charged into the ring, Henry bashed him in the head with the metal briefcase and drove him into the canvas with a superhuman World’s Strongest Slam.
With both Superstars still reeling from the huge impact, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long emerged to announce their rivalry would be settled in a match at Survivor Series (PREVIEW). The news brought a huge smile to The World’s Largest Athlete.
Sin Cara def. Epico by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) Up against an unknown Superstar in Epico, Sin Cara was looking good until Hunico intervened, pushing Sin Cara off the top rope. With the bout over due to disqualification and Sin Cara down, both Hunico and Epico launched a brutal 2-on-1 beat down on the vulnerable masked Superstar.
Wade Barrett def. Sheamus (WATCH | PHOTOS) With Christian unable to face Sheamus due to a massive chokeslam from Big Show, Wade Barrett suggested he take Christian’s place. When Sheamus agreed, it was on. But when Christian finally recovered, he decided to get involved. His distraction opened the door for Barrett to cunningly wrap up Sheamus for the pinfall – yet another victory for his “Barrett Barrage.” Seething with anger, Sheamus wanted more of Barrett, but was met with a spear from Christian. With The Celtic Warrior down, Christian raised Barrett’s arm in victory as the duo walked up the ramp.
Big Show chokeslammed Christian (WATCH | PHOTOS) When debating who was entitled to a World Title Match, Christian grew nervous that Big Show was going to knock him out. After stating he would do no such thing, Big Show brutally chokeslammed Edge’s lifelong buddy.
Alicia Fox def. Natalya (WATCH | PHOTOS) Making a strong statement, the agile Alicia Fox defeated Natalya with a well-targeted scissor kick.
Mark Henry confronted Daniel Bryan (WATCH) When Mark Henry didn’t like the way Daniel Bryan was looking at him, he dared Mr. Money in the Bank to meet him in a match. When the Bryan didn’t back down, the ball was set in motion for the night’s main event.
Ted DiBiase def. Tyson Kidd (WATCH | PHOTOS) In a competitive bout between two young Superstars looking for a win, Ted DiBiase reigned supreme when he put away Tyson Kidd with Dream Street.
Randy Orton def. Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes in a Street Fight (WATCH | PHOTOS) In an anything goes Street Fight, The Viper and Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes clashed in a knockdown, drag out battle. In a particularly brutal moment, The Viper suplexed Rhodes onto a steel grate on the entrance ramp. Despite the crushing blow, Rhodes carried on.
With The Viper locked in a painful leg hold, Rhodes removed his mask and used it as a weapon to bash Orton in the skull. But as the battle continued and Rhodes tried a similar move, the cunning Viper grabbed the mask and smashed Rhodes in the face with it. That proved to be a pivotal turning point in the match, shifting momentum in The Viper's favor.
Finally after an RKO from the ring barricade to the arena floor, then another one in the ring, WWE’s Apex Predator secured the win. Adding insult to injury, Orton placed one of Rhodes’ paper bags over his head. Then as he walked up the ramp in victory, Orton held Rhodes' mask up to reveal it had been cracked.

* WWE Your Call * WWE Countdown * WWE Settle the Score * WWE Hit List
- During Thursday morning's investor conference call, WWE CEO Vince McMahon said that WWE will "soon be making a very big announcement" on WWE Network plans. cMahon said that WWE is on track to launch the network next year and feels confident they "finally turned the corner" to where they can make the "very big announcement."
- When asked about when the WWE Network will launch, WWE said 6 months is a good estimate.
- They noted they have about 100,000 hours of footage in their tape library - with 30,000 hours digitized. They are using those 30,000 hours as the first programming for the Network and will continue to digitize the rest of their content. They called their library of footage their most underutilized and unappreciated asset. WWE owns 100% of the rights to their tape library, although they do license it to partners.- They were asked about WWE's Network and if would have any partnerships. Vince said it would be solely owned by WWE.
- Vince McMahon talked about why the network will be a success - and took a shot at Oprah Winfrey's struggling network, which he called a failure. Vince said Oprah just put her name on the network without giving fans what they want, which is a mistake WWE won't make.

Upcoming WWE Network expenses include $4-6 million for staffing and $10-15 million for additional equipment and construction of a WWE Network Media Center.
Backstage News On Maryse's Release, Playboy? Posted by Dave Mitchell on 11/02/2011 at 10:42 PM
Former WWE diva Maryse was released from the company on October 28th, a move that was a surprise to many backstage.
As to whether the decision was hers or WWE, a WWE source indicates that it was mutual. Maryse was already looking beyond WWE at getting back into modeling and possibly even posing for Playboy, but it was WWE that made the call to release her. Because the company did not see any issues with her going to TNA (like Gail Kim), they did not have as much of an issue letting her go.
Prior to her getting injured (and undergoing surgery to correct an abdominal hernia), there were plans to start an angle where Hornswoggle had the hots for her.
She was medically cleared to return several weeks ago and she was telling people that she was about to be brought back to television.
She is still dating Miz and currently resides in Southern California.

WWE Raw SuperShow results: It's time to meet The Muppets!
ATLANTA — On any other program, the sudden appearance of a talking frog and a pig who knows karate would seem bizarre. On WWE Raw SuperShow, it was just another part of a night that included a trick from R-Truth, a treat for CM Punk and a very Happy Halloween for John Cena.
John Cena def. The Miz (WATCH | PHOTOS) Fired up after finding out that The Rock will team with him against The “Awesome Truth” at Survivor Series, John Cena gave The Awesome One a little taste of what to expect on Nov. 20. Smashing The Miz in the same city where they clashed at WrestleMania XXVII, the Cenation leader was almost stopped by a fan dressed as Ghostface from the Scream movies. As it turned out the attacker was actually R-Truth who got a taste of Cena’s rage before the West Newbury, Mass., native put Miz away with the STF. The powerful Superstar then nailed Truth with an Attitude Adjustment to make it one unhappy Halloween for The "Awesome Truth."
Miss Piggy beat up Hornswoggle (WATCH | PHOTOS) Hornswoggle sure picked a bad time to meet The Muppets. The little leprechaun is such a huge fan of the colorful puppets that he has nearly the whole group tattooed on his ankle, (PHOTOS) so he should have known better than to interrupt Miss Piggy in the presence of a handsome man. Ruining the moody porker’s chances with the abdominally inclined John Morrison, Hornswoggle stole a kiss from the pig and ended up getting nailed with a karate chop he won’t soon forget.
Michael Cole postponed “The Michael Cole Challenge” (WATCH) If there’s one thing Michael Cole is good at, it's beating a dead horse. After daring Jim Ross to face him in a “Michael Cole Challenge” last week, the sniveling announcer revealed that the competition will have to wait until next Monday, because J.R. was out of action with inflammatory bowel disease. Let’s just hope Good Ol’ J.R. shows up to shut this worm’s mouth once and for all.
Zack Ryder def. United States Champion Dolph Ziggler in a Title-Free Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) Moments after his associate Jack Swagger was defeated by Santino Marella thanks to a little help from The Muppets, Dolph Ziggler suffered a similar fate when he was beaten by Zack Ryder. Luckily for the United States Champion, his title wasn’t on the line, but he’ll think twice before he messes with Gonzo again. (WATCH)
Santino Marella def. Jack Swagger (WATCH | PHOTOS) We’re not sure if it was the furry body or the strange accent, but something gave Santino Marella a serious kinship with The Muppets. With Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy watching from the entrance ramp and Animal sitting in as special guest timekeeper, the Italian Superstar scored a big victory over The All-American American when Beaker slipped Santino a mysterious potion, which The Milan Miracle used to blind Swagger and grab the win.
Big Show def. WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio in a Title-Free Match; Del Rio vs. Punk set for Survivor Series (WATCH | PHOTOS) It looks like Alberto Del Rio will be defending his WWE Title against CM Punk after all. After being knocked out cold by Big Show’s mighty fist, The Mexican Aristocrat awoke to find himself in the wrenching agony of The Straight Edge Superstar’s Anaconda Vise.
With no choice but to agree to Punk’s demands for a WWE Title Match at Survivor Series or risk having his arm broken, Del Rio consented and the bout became official. Now that’s what you call hostile negotiations. (WATCH)
Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes & Wade Barrett def. WWE Tag Team Champions Air Boom in a Title-Free Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) Wade Barrett continued to breathe new life into his career tonight as he teamed with the sinister Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes to defeat the WWE Tag Team Champions. Not content just to claim the victory, the SmackDown villains laid waste to Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston after the bell with some help from the underhanded Christian. The trio’s beating may have caused some serious damage if it wasn’t for the last minute heroism of a very aggressive Sheamus.
Sheamus came face-to-face with Beaker (WATCH | PHOTOS) Ever notice how much Sheamus looks like Beaker from The Muppets? It turns out it’s not just a passing resemblance. When The Celtic Warrior stopped Christian from bothering Beaker and Bunsen as they prepped their latest science experiment, he gave his puppet doppelganger a knowing nod before adding, “I’m afraid I can’t make it to the family reunion this year.”
Eve won a No. 1 Contender’s Diva Halloween Costume Battle Royal (WATCH | PHOTOS) Not to be overshadowed by The Muppets, the gorgeous Divas slipped into their sexiest Halloween costumes and rumbled in a Battle Royal to determine who would be the next competitor to challenge Beth Phoenix for the Divas Championship.(WATCH: DIVAS DISCUSS THEIR COSTUMES)
Showing how determined these women are to capture that title, every Diva fought hard, but the brawl came down to Eve, Alicia Fox, Kelly Kelly and Natalya. Putting partnerships aside, the four Divas collided in the ring, but when the smoke cleared, Eve was the only one standing.
The WWE Universe met The Muppets (WATCH | PHOTOS) Leave it to Vickie Guerrero to ruin a good time. As soon as Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy had a chance to meet the WWE Universe, the talking animals were interrupted by a cougar. Getting into a oinking match with Miss Piggy while Jack Swagger threatened Kermie, Vickie was finally silenced by Santino Marella who revealed that he will face The All-American American tonight while Zack Ryder locks up with United States Champion Dolph Ziggler.
World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry def. CM Punk by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) In a bout set by Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis on WWE.com, CM Punk had to defeat The World’s Strongest Man if he wanted to face Alberto Del Rio for the WWE Title at Survivor Series.
It was a massive undertaking, but one The Straight Edge Superstar was more than willing to accept. That was until Del Rio’s flunky, Ricardo Rodriguez, hit the ring and jumped on Henry’s back, leading the official to award the bout to the World Heavyweight Champion via disqualification. Clearly, The Mexican Aristocrat wants nothing to do with Punk.
The Rock accepted John Cena’s offer (WATCH) Finally, The Rock has come back to Survivor Series! Seven days after John Cena invited The Great One to team with him against The Miz & R-Truth at the same event where Rock made his WWE debut, The People’s Champion appeared via satellite to accept the Cenation leader's offer. Admitting that an outpouring of support from the WWE Universe helped sway his decision, The Brahma Bull revealed that he's ready to whoop The "Awesome Truth" on Nov. 20. And with that, the most charismatic tag team in WWE history is born. (MATCH PREVIEW)
If that wasn't enough, it was announced that The Great One will return to WWE Raw SuperShow on Nov. 14 for a live three-hour special when Raw gets Rocked! (WATCH)
Lucha Libre blog R De Rudo recently caught up with Low Rider who is an American wrestler of Mexican descent currently wrestling in the Mexican Independent circuit. In the video interview, Low Rider speaks about his dark match against Amazing Red some time ago, admitting that he has copied some of Red's moves in the past. Low Rider also tells a hilarious story about how he was scared to death of the pyro work in TNA just prior to the start of Impact Wrestling. He also claims that TNA Star Hernandez brought up his name to TNA Executives and also taught him to wrestle. He ends the interview stating that he is very close to signing with TNA and does have high hopes.
Some sites are already reporting that Low Rider has signed with TNA. There is more evidence that some other sites have simply copied and pasted quick segments of the R De Rudo interview and as of this writing, he has not signed a contract.
