Finkel then appeared annoyed when a chat moderator posted a YouTube video of Garcia’s 2007 song ¡Quiero Vivir!. When asked for comment later, he simply wrote, “Good for her.” The following fan comment was then posted: “Fink, you should return to announce. Belong on tv not computer.” He responded, “AMEN.”

- MTV has tried several times to get The Miz to return for another "Real World Challenge" - but he's not interested in returning to the network that gave him his first national television exposure. Miz told FayObserver.com this week:
"MTV gave me my start, and I'm always grateful to them. But, I'm done with doing a challenge. I'm tired of the drama that comes with that, and I don't know the kids any more. I'd be the first one voted out. I know the game; I was a mastermind at that. I enjoy watching, though."

News regarding the future of WWE PPV events Posted by Marc Middleton on 12/07/2011 at 09:39 PM
While nothing is confirmed yet, the latest talk on pay-per-views airing on the new WWE Network is that WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and maybe one other event will be kept on pay-per-view while the remaining events will be shown on the network.
Because the WWE Network won’t be available at first in a majority of homes, it’s possible that WWE will still offer the events to purchase on regular pay-per-view.
Former TNA Star Comments On All Wheels Wrestling And TNA's India Project
Daivari on the TNA offshoot All Wheels Wrestling that is slated to air on Speed Network:
It's more or less the World X Cup. Instead of having different countries being represented in teams, it's different genres of racing being teams and then we compete in a predetermined set of points. At the end of the season, instead of having a World Champion, you have a cup holder like there is in racing, like they did for the World X Cup. My character is Dubai, who kind of takes after the desert off-road racing... My team is going to be kind of of that genre of racing. We're going to be, not necessarily Middle Eastern, but foreign characters where this is popular... I'll be the team captain... Last I heard, I'm still apart of it and I'm really looking forward to it. I think this is going to be the most wrestling per minute of television time that's going to be on in the United States. If it's a one-hour or two-hour program, I want to say that about 80 percent of it will be wrestling, which has me really excited because it's going to be the only wrestling show that you can tune into and it's going to be wrestling.
Daivari on the TNA India project:
I'm doing it. It's not even a pilot. It's a done deal. They are doing a TV show. I leave December 14... We shoot for two weeks and then I come home for two weeks and we go back for two weeks and that will be the season... The India project and the All Wheels Wrestling project are very much on top of it being handled by Dixie (Carter) and Jeff (Jarrett). And both Dixie and Jeff, I think, always liked me, because anytime stuff like this comes up, they could say this to everybody, but they both called me and they said, 'You are the first guy we called.'

WWE Raw SuperShow results: CM Punk sets the table for WWE TLC By: Ryan Murphy December 5, 2011 Tags: WWE Raw SuperShow: December 5, 2011
TAMPA, Fla. — Dubbing himself "Mr. Excitement," Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis sent John Cena, The Miz, Alberto Del Rio and United States Champion Dolph Ziggler into action to decide who would face WWE Champion CM Punk at WWE TLC in two weeks.
WWE Champion CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio and The Miz signed a contract for their WWE TLC bout (WATCH | PHOTOS) Now that the combatants for WWE TLC’s WWE Title Match were set, the Interim Raw General Manager upped the ante by making the bout a Triple Threat Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match. Although it is one of WWE’s most career-threatening bouts, all three Superstars eagerly signed the contract before attacking each other in an all-out brawl. As officials hit the ring to try to break up the melee, the WWE Universe cheered wildly, knowing they will see one hell of a match in two weeks.
Sheamus def. United States Champion Dolph Ziggler in a Title-free Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) After rudely telling Jack Swagger to stay in the locker room during this bout, (WATCH) the United States Champion brought the fight to The Celtic Warrior for an opportunity to face WWE Champion CM Punk at WWE TLC. The cocky Superstar came close to victory, but he had it snatched from him by Zack Ryder, who injected himself into the match to remind Ziggler that they will be meeting for the United States Title soon.
Kevin Nash def. Santino Marella (WATCH | PHOTOS) Following the announcement that Kevin Nash will face Triple H at WWE TLC in a Ladder Match with a sledgehammer hanging above the ring, (MATCH PREVIEW) the big man brought the dangerous weapon into the squared circle after he beat Santino. But instead of plastering The Milan Miracle with the foreign object, Nash scared his opponent and then walked away with the sledgehammer hoisted above his head like a prize.
Zack Ryder def. World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry in a Title-free Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) After John Cena agreed to forfeit his WWE Championship opportunity at WWE TLC if Zack Ryder was given a second chance, John Laurinaitis scheduled this bout with obvious intentions to see Long Island Iced-Z crushed. But what seemed like an insurmountable obstacle for The “Woo Woo Woo Kid” soon turned to triumph as the Cenation leader blasted Mark Henry with an Attitude Adjustment in this no count-out, no disqualification match to help Ryder score the win. The spray-tanned Superstar now has a future United States Title Match against Dolph Ziggler.

Then, watch Raw on Monday to see the winner, the debut of Brodus Clay and an explosive showdown between World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry and John Cena.
John Cena def. Zack Ryder (WATCH | PHOTOS) Although they’re good friends outside of the ring, John Cena and Zack Ryder were forced to battle tonight as a part of a “social experiment” concocted by John Laurinaitis. (WATCH) If Ryder won this bout, he would earn a future United States Title opportunity. If Cena was victorious, he would compete for the WWE Title at WWE TLC. With stakes high, both Superstars battled with everything they had, but it was the Cenation leader who grabbed the victory. Still, even with the win, the powerful competitor didn’t look happy as he exited.
Kelly Kelly & Eve def. Divas Champion Beth Phoenix & Natalya (WATCH | PHOTOS) The “pin-up strong” pair of Divas Champion Beth Phoenix & Natalya have thrived by torturing Kelly Kelly & Eve, but the wicked duo couldn't push around the so-called "Barbie Dolls" tonight. Rolling up her powerful rival out of nowhere, Kelly scored a huge tag victory for her team and sent the arrogant Divas a message that a pretty face should never be underestimated.
Alberto Del Rio def. Daniel Bryan (WATCH | PHOTOS) Still favoring his ribs following his hellish encounter with World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry on SmackDown, the gutsy Daniel Bryan bravely faced The Mexican Aristocrat, but was too vulnerable to combat the crossarm breaker. With this victory, Alberto Del Rio qualified for a WWE Championship opportunity at WWE TLC.
The Miz def. Randy Orton by Count-out (WATCH | PHOTOS) The Awesome One will be competing for the WWE Title at WWE TLC and he has Wade Barrett to thank for it. In the middle of The Miz’s showdown with The Viper, the aggressive British Superstar entered the fray and distracted Orton on the outside of the ring, which led to WWE’s Apex Predator being counted out. When Orton turned his attention back to Miz, he was attacked from behind by the underhanded Barrett.
John Cena, U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio and The Miz argued over who deserves to face WWE Champion CM Punk (PHOTOS) Everyone wants to hold the WWE Title, but which Superstar deserves to face WWE Champion CM Punk? That’s what Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis had to decide when he broke up the bickering of John Cena, United States Champion Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio and The Miz.
Proving that he’s not as dull as The Straight Edge Superstar says he is, the executive came up with this decision — Miz, Ziggler and Del Rio would compete against SmackDown Superstars tonight and if they win, they will be entered in the WWE Championship Match at WWE TLC in two weeks. Cena, on the other hand, would undergo a “social experiment” that the GM had dreamt up.
