WWE Smackdown Results (10/19/12) Posted by: Elio Cannella reporting for WrestlingNewsSource.com on Oct 19 2012
Welcome to WWE Friday Night Smackdown and this week we come to you from Memphis, Tennessee and we kick things off with MizTV. Miz is in the ring and says last Wednesday on Main Event, luck struck Kofi Kingston and he escapes with Miz’ Intercontinental Championship and the last 48hrs have been a living hell. He told Kofi to cherish this title reign because it will be very short. Tonight he is invoking his rematch clause for the intercontinental championship at Hell In A Cell and he is going to show Kingstone exactly why they call him the most must-see superstar. He’s going to win the intercontinental championship and then it will be Kofi Kingston’s life that will be a living hell. He then introduces his guests, Team Hell No. Miz then called them out on their separate entrances saying they’re not a true tag team, they’re a couple of egomaniacs. If they were a true tag team, they’d come out together not separately. Miz says on NXT, he was Bryan’s pro. He taught him, he bred Bryan, he made him the star he is today but they never really got along just as Bryan never got along with AJ, just like Bryan doesn’t get along with Kane and Miz says it’s obvious that Bryan is he problem and calls Kane the sensible one. Miz then says at HIAC, whichever team they face, Bryan will be the reason Team Hell No loses the titles. Kane then tells Miz no one cares what Miz thinks. Kane’s won tag team championships with angry seven foot giants, deranged psychopaths with multiple personalities, and even the dead man himself. Kane then says if Daniel Bryan is the problem, Kane is the solution. Bryan says he is not the problem. He is the reason they will win at HIAC because quite frankly the devil’s favourite demon is nothing without “The World’s Toughest Vegan”. Kane then said “World’s Toughest Vegan” is like someone calling themselves “The World’s Toughest Dwarf” but says Bryan’s got that one covered too. Miz then tries to interject and asks to say something and both Kane and Bryan yell No at him. Bryan then says he’s not a dwarf, he’s not a goat face, he is a former World Heavyweight Champion and he won that title by cashing in his MITB contract by defeating a giant and ending that reign in 45 seconds. They then begin arguing about who the tag team champions are. Big Show then comes out. Show says he has no problem with Kane. His problem is with Bryan and says he thought Bryan would have learned to keep his mouth shut after he destroyed Bryan on Raw and called Bryan’s title victory a fluke and after HIAC when he knocks Sheamus out nothing like that is ever going to happen to him again. And if he hears Bryan open his mouth one more time about 45 seconds. He’s going to knock Bryan out. Kane then steps in front of Bryan and says he and Show may be scheduled for a match on Raw, but they don’t have to wait. Dolph Ziggler then comes out and says all this talk about Bryan cashing in is so last year and all that matters is the current MITB contract holder. At HIAC, Sheamus and Big Show are going to beat the hell out of each other and then he’s going to do what he does best and that’s steal the show. Ziggler says it doesn’t matter if he cashes in on Sheamus or Big Show, and how hard is it to beat Big Show? After all, Bryan beat him. They all begin arguing and Booker T comes out and says everyone needs to chill out because he has something to say. Miz cuts him off calling him predictable and Booker’s going to make a main event match and calls him so creative. Booker then says he was not going to say that. Tonight, he has an announcement. He’s going to make two main event caliber matches for tonight. Team Hell No vs Dolph Ziggler & Big Show and Miz will be facing……Randy Orton.

And in a few weeks Sheamus has a match at HIAC, the last thing you’d want is a match against Wade Barrett and by accepting, Sheamus is essentially saying he doesn’t want to be World Champion and he’s doing Big Show a favour and in two week’s time at HIAC, he wants Show to remember that favour because he’ll want it repaid.

This week on Superstars, Tensai is in action against Michael McGillicutty and Kaitlyn takes on Beth Phoenix. Click “read more” for a full recap of the show.
Note: Superstars is watched on Hulu Plus so match times may differ from other recaps.
After the usual intro, we go straight to the ring where Tensai is making his entrance. Scott Stanford and Josh Matthews welcome the home audience. They talk about Tensai’s failed attempts to beat up Sheamus and say he’s here tonight to take his frustration out on someone. His opponent, Michael McGillicutty, comes out second. Once again he’s in the face role. Weird.
Match #1: Michael McGillicutty Vs. Tensai
After an intense staredown, McGillicutty and Tensai lock up. Tensai immediately throws him into the corner. McGillicutty snags a side headlock but Tensai picks him up and head to the corner. Tensai rubs his forearm in his face while yelling “WHO ARE YOU?!?”. McGillicutty gets fired up and starts laying into Tensai. Tensai reverses an Irish whip and catches McGillicutty during a leap frog attempt. McGillicutty slips out and hits the ropes, but runs right into a shoulder block. Elbow drop by Tensai followed by headbutts in the corner.

McGillicutty tries to fight out but Tensai takes the hits and throws him hard into the corner. Tensai headbutts the fallen McGillicutty. A “Let’s go Michael” chant breaks out. McGillicutty ducks a clothesline and dropkicks Tensai out of the ring. McGillicutty hits a running knee on Tensai as he gets on the apron, knocking him back to the floor. McGillicutty riles up the crowd (as much as a Superstars crowd can be riled) as we go to commercial.
Tensai has the advantage once again as we come back from commercial. Tensai knees McGillicutty in the back and rips at his face. Tensai chokes McGillicutty on the bottom rope then slingshots him into the middle rope. McGillicutty falls to the outside. Tensai brings him back in and sends him head-first into the second turnbuckle. A series of elbow drops by Tensai followed by a pinning attempt. 2-count. Tensai grabs McGillicutty by the head and wrenches the neck to try and force a submission.
The crowd wakes McGillicutty up and he gets to his feet. He fights out of an attempted bear hug but runs into a chop. Tensai attempts the Senton Splash but McGillicutty moves and hits a running neck snap Mr. Perfect-style (nice). McGillicutty heads to the top and connects with a flying cross body for the 1…2…KICK OUT. McGillicutty sets up for the Perfect Plex but Tensai grabs him and hits the Baldo Bomb. Tensai follows it up for the Senton Splash and connects with it this time for the 1…2…3.
Winner [via Pinfall]: Tensai (7:59) A much much better match than I expected. McGillicutty working as a face takes a little getting used to but he did a good job of being in peril and trying to overcome the much larger Tensai. Much love to the power of low expectations. (B-)
Raw Rebound: WWE Champion CM Punk makes a big hooplah about deciding on his opponent for Hell in a Cell so Vince McMahon intervenes and says since Punk was a douche about it he’s going to decide it himself later that night during a contract signing.
Superstars Hype: Kaitlyn takes on Beth Phoenix next!
Kaitlyn makes her way out first for what amounts to the “main event” of the evening. She still has her left ankle taped up thanks to the attack at Night of Champions. Plug for Hell in a Cell and WWE ’13 during her entrance. Her opponent Beth Phoenix makes her way out next. Stanford and Matthews talk about how Phoenix was the first to be accused of sneak attacking Kaitlyn at last month’s PPV.
Match #2: Kaitlyn Vs. Beth Phoenix
Waistlock takedown by Phoenix to start the match. Phoenix grabs another waistlock but Kaitlyn breaks out and takes her down with a wristlock. Hammerlock by Phoenix and Kaitlyn backs her into the ropes to break the hold. Kaitlyn whips Phoenix into the ropes and ducks for a back bodydrop, but Phoenix grabs her and throws her out of the ring. Phoenix boasts long enough for Kaitlyn to run back in and attack. Phoenix goes to the outside and pulls Kaitlyn out with her. Phoenix gets punched in the mouth but hits a running polish hammer. Phoenix rolls Kaitlyn back in and goes to the top turnbuckle to boast as we go to commercial.
After a WWE ’13 ad in-show, we go back to the match. Phoenix has Kaitlyn in a chinlock but Kaitlyn breaks out and hits a running crossbody for a 2-count. Phoenix immediately goes back on the attack and steps on her. Phoenix positions Kaitlyn into a tree of woe and kicks at her. Phoenix grabs her and sends her head-first into the bottom turnbuckle. Kaitlyn falls out of the tree of woe and Phoenix goes for the pin. 2-count.

Forearms by Kaitlyn followed by an uppercut and running shoulder block. Kaitlyn goes for another pin. 2-count. Phoenix regains the advantage and applies a chinlock following a snap mare.
Kaitlyn fights back to her feet and goes for a hurricanrana but gets thrown to the apron. Kaitlyn goes to the top but Phoenix picks her up. She goes for a gorilla press slam but Kaitlyn slips out and hits with a sunset flip for the 1…2…3.
Winner [via Pinfall]: Kaitlyn (7:07) A decent match with good back and forth action but nothing special overall unfortunately (although Stanford trying to solve who attacked Kaitlyn was pretty funny and made the commentary the most entertaining aspect of the match). Kaitlyn is still selling the ankle injury which is awesome but taping it over the boot? Doesn’t seem like the smartest idea (wrestling is real, right?). Kaitlyn’s win was an upset more than anything which is surprising since Phoenix has been jobbing a lot lately and Kaitlyn had been wrestling for the Divas Championship. Feels like Kaitlyn should have had a more emphatic and decisive victory. Also, I thought Phoenix was already gone from the company? Maybe the internet wrestling sites were wrong which is absolutely shocking. (C+)
Raw Rebound: John Cena backs Ryback, who signs the contract to face CM Punk at Hell in a Cell. Ryback then takes Punk out with a Shell Shock and leads the crowd in a “Feed Me More” chant. And that concludes this week’s short as hell Superstars.
For those that noticed during tonight's
live Impact Wrestling telecast, Jeff Hardy debut a new belt custom World

colored accents, Swarovski crystals and actually has the ability for the lights
to sync to music. You can click on the image below to view a larger version of

TNA Impact Results - October 18th, 2012 Posted by Steve Carrier on 10/18/2012 at 07:26 PM
The show starts with Aces & Eights walking right past security now that they have full access to the Impact Zone, and they come out through the crowd and stand in the middle of the ring as the Vice President comes up on the screen and says what a beautiful sight this is. He says that they have one man to thank, someone who is now a full member of Aces & Eights and a part of the brotherhood, and we know him as Devon. Devon comes out through the crowd in his Aces & Eights jacket, hugs all the members in the ring, and tells the fans to shut the hell up. The crowd chants "you sold out" at Devon, and he says that the men in the ring were the ones who have had his back since day one. They were the ones who were there for him when he was down and out, and the fans are the most no good, inbred pieces of crap he's ever seen. If the fans want to know why he did it, it's because he could. He thanks Aces & Eights for helping him stand in the ring testifying, and he thanks the man who organized the whole thing and patched him in. This is the group that will destroy TNA, and as the fans tell Devon that he sucks, he cuts to the chase and says he didn't forget when Bubba turned on him in this very ring and eventually put his son through a table, and payback is a biatch.
Before Devon gets any further, Bully Ray, Sting, Samoa Joe, Kurt Angle, Hernandez, James Storm, Ken Anderson, AJ Styles, Chavo Guerrero, and Garett Bischoff come out of the back. One of these men is not like the other. Sting says he's glad Aces & Eights made it into the Impact Zone, because he wants to introduce them to the TNA roster. The TNA guys rush the ring and a huge brawl breaks out in the ring until Hulk Hogan's music hits and the successor to Ron Jeremy himself comes strolling down to the ring with baseball bat in hand. The TNA roster clears the ring as Hogan makes his entrance, and we go to commercial.
We're back, and Hogan says to do what we got to do. The TNA guys go after Aces & Eights, who backpedal to the locker room. Hogan says that it doesn't work like that, becase when Aces & Eights got full access to TNA, then they've got to fight. Sting says he wants to fight Devon right here tonight, Bubba also wants to fight him, but Devon says it ain't happening. Hogan says he's got a choice to make, becase if he wants to be here, he's got to fight Sting right here tonight. The crowd chants for Bully, who desperately wants the match, and Devon says he's got it, so Hogan tells him he better show up. Devon says Sting better show up or they'll find him in the parking lot, and Bubba points at Devon and makes his thoughts known. Bubba gives Hogan a real dirty look as the segment wraps up.
We go to a video package looking back at Bound For Glory, and see clips of Jeff Hardy defeating Austin Aries for the TNA World Title. Jeff Hardy will be holding a celebration right here tonight! Meanwhile, Aries is backstage saying it's such a surprise to see that Hardy's getting a celebration tonight, but no party wold be complete without the greatest man who ever lived. He'll even bring cookies.
Hogan is in his office telling Ken Anderson that Jeff Hardy is going to defend the title against one of four men: James "Storms" is already in, there's a three way match later tonight for the second spot, and he wants Anderson to have the third spot because he's been on the right track. Joseph Park walks in and Hogan asks him if he's okay, and Park says they need to talk, but wants to do it alone. Hogan miraculously remembers that the cameras are there and tells them to leave while he talks to Park.
TV Title Match: Samoa Joe vs Robbie E
Robbie T is, of course, at ringside. Joe runs Robbie over with a charging forearm as soon as the bell rings, then whips him to the corner and charges in with a back elbow, followed by a leaping enziguiri. Joe with the snapmare/chop/kick/kneedrop combo for 2. Joe with short jabs in the corner, Robbie throws a few weak shots back at Joe but does no damage, and Joe lays him right back out with a chop. Joe goes for the Muscle Buster, but Robbie T holds Joe's ankle from the outside and E kicks Joe off into the middle of the ring. Joe doesn't go down, and takes T out with a dive through the ropes. E tries to get the jump on him with a dive off the apron, but Joe kicks him in the ribs on the way down, then they go back inside where Joe flattens Robbie with the Muscle Buster before choking him out with the Kokina Clutch.
Winner: Samoa Joe
Robbie T runs in the ring and tries to go after Joe, but Joe sees him coming and ducks T's clothesline, then chokes him out with the Kokina Clutch as well. The crowd loves them some Samoa Joe.
Tara is backstage working out...by getting gorilla pressed by this Chippendales dude Tara is with. I have no idea who he is, but he says he's Jesse from Big Brother. They talk TMZ stuff I don't get, and Tara wants her some sugar...RIGHT NOW.
Unfortunately, she's going to have to wait to get the big one, because she's in our next match...
Knockouts Champion Tara vs ODB
ODB is yelling at Eric Young, who presumably is on the set of her TV show, telling him he better keep his ring on as she comes out to the ring. Tara jumps ODB on her way into the ring, but that backfires as ODB completely overpowers Tara before taking her ring off and sticking it in her pocket so it won't get broken while she roughs Tara up. ODB with a running powerslam, British Bulldog-style, then grabs her cell phone to make sure EY is still there before cramming Jesse's face into her boobs. She goes back to talking to EY, but Tara jumps her from behind and yells "that is MY MAN!" over and over while she drives forearms into the back of ODB's skull. Taryn Terrell forces the break, so Tara picks ODB up in a hangman's noose and then yanks her to the mat by the hair. She shoves Terrell out of the way as she continues dishing out punishment while yelling to Jesse that she's got her, and asks how her hair looks. Tara with another hangman's noose, then she goes to make out with Jesse, but now ODB is pissed. She takes a swig from her flask, runs Tara into Jesse, then hits the TKO for the win.
Brooke Tessmacher is standing at the top of the ramp smiling and applauding Tara's loss, waving at her as she slowly comes to in the arms of Jesse.
AJ Styles is backstage telling Kurt Angle that he likes teaming with him, but they both want to be the World Champion, so no disrespect, but he'll see him out in the ring. Angle watches AJ leave and says "Yes you will."
Aces & Eights are hanging around in the parking lot as Devon gets ready for tonight's main event.
While they're doing that, we go to a video package looking at this past weekend at Bound For Glory, as Chavo Guerrero Jr and Hernandez won the World Tag Team Title. Christopher Daniels says that when the rematch happens, they're going to kick the dog **** out of them because they're the only Tag Team Champions of the World.
Kid Kash & Gunner vs World Tag Team Champions Chavo Guerrero Jr & Hernandez
Gunner and Kash jump the champions before the bell, but Hernandez takes them both out with a double clothesline, then press slams Kash right in the middle of the ring. Chavo comes in and dropkicks Kash in the back of the neck, but a cover only gets 1 when Kash grabs the bottom rope. Hernandez comes back in and gets Kash in a bearhug, then pops him up into an overhead release suplex. Kash bites Hernandez in the face to slow him down, then Gunner tags in and unloads on Hernandez with forearms. Hernandez quickly recovers and takes Gunner out, then Chavo comes in with a slingshot senton for 2 on Gunner. Chavo winds up in the wrong part of town, and takes a 2-on-1 beating for several minutes before finally tagging out to Hernandez, who slingshots into the ring with a shoulderblock to Kash, then he takes both opponents out with clotheslines before pouncing Kash out of his boots. Chavo tags in and hits a flying bodypress for the win.
Winners: Chavo Gurerrero Jr & Hernandez
Jeff Hardy is backstage, and he's...WALKING!
Joseph Park is in Hogan's office with Sting, and he wants to get his hands on Aces & Eights. Bully Ray comes in and asks to speak to Hogan alone. Hogan says no because they're all on the same team, and he thanks Sting for letting him team with him, and sorry if he let him down. They do the pound and Sting says he wasn't let down, then Bubba says he knows his brother and wants to be the one to get answers out of Devon. Hogan says he's in the three way for the title shot at Jeff Hardy and he should worry about that and let Sting take care of Devon, and Bubba says Hogan needs to trust him more.
Another video package of Aries vs Hardy (or the same one maybe, I'm not sure), then we're off to the ring as Hardy (with new entrance music that's like a mix-up of the three different ones he's used so far) comes out for his celebration. Confetti falls as Hardy high fives and waves to the fans, and boy do I think this is going to piss Aries off. Hardy says he's chased this for over a year, and the fans have been there for him through thick and thin and he can't thank them enough. The fans give him a "thank you Hardy" chant (I assume they mean Jeff), and he says he can't wait to defend the title next week in the Impact Zone. Austin Aries' music hits and he comes out singing and asking Hardy where the women and the party favors are, and to leave it to the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived to make it a party. He's got a tray of cookies (starting a "we want cookies" chant) and a bunch of balloons, and he wants to give Hardy credit: he did what Bully Ray and Bobby Roode couldn't: he beat Austin Aries on PPV. To celebrate, he brought some gifts like the balloons (which he lets go) and some cookies, but Hardy says he doesn't eat cookies and smacks the tray out of his hand. Aries says that this is only the beginning of the battle, and they both know that, because all the pressure and all the stress is on his shoulders, and not everyone can handle that. He can invoke his rematch clause anytime he wants, and he tells the fans chanting for Hardy to shut up, but he's going to let Hardy crumble under the pressure because he's going to win back the World Title. He makes fun of the new belt Hardy's carrying around, and he says Hardy's even got his face on the title and it seems that he must be able to pull some strings around here. He thinks it's the spitting image of Hardy, so he spits on it. Hardy nails Aries and goes after him, but Aries quickly slides out of the ring and points at his head to say that he's getting in Hardy's head.
Daniels is backstage telling the Mystery Cameraman that he knows it looks like he's down and out, but the appletini is always half full. He's going to go out there and show Hogan what kind of man he is by beating AJ and Kurt, and then they can share one of these delicious drinks together.
#1 Contender Match: Christopher Daniels vs Kurt Angle vs AJ Styles
Daniels gets ping-ponged back and forth between Angle and AJ, and they gleefully double team him for a minute or so before they turn their attention to each other. Angle goes behind AJ with a waistlock, AJ tries unsuccessfully to hit a switch, and Angle drills him with a couple of right hands before coming off the ropes right into a dropkick from AJ. AJ rams shoulderblocks into Angle's ribs in the corner, but Daniels sneaks in and rams shoulderblocks into both of them. His run doesn't last long, as Angle takes him out with a clothesline before Angle and AJ turn their attention back to each other. Angle nearly backdrops AJ into the next time zone, gives Daniels a windmill backbreaker, and overhead release suplex for AJ, and a release German suplex for Daniels. AJ hits a Pelle Kick, Angle backdrops out of a Styles Clash androlls through into an anklelock on AJ. Daniels sneaks in and hits a palmstrike on Angle to break the hold, then rams Angle shoulder first into the ringpost before flattening AJ with an STO for 2. Daniels with a side Deathdrop for 2, then puts AJ in a COPS hold. Angle comes in and flattens Daniels with a clothesline, but AJ gets a second wind and tears into both men. A springboard forearm gets 2 on Angle, Daniels hits a Blue Thunder Driver on AJ for 2, Angle gets a t-bone suplex on Daniels, AJ with another Pelle Kick on Angle, and all three men are down. AJ rolls out to the apron and goes for another springboard move, but backdrops a charging Daniels to the floor and takes him out with an Asai moonsault. AJ seems to have hurt his knee on that one, but rolls Daniels back inside and climbs up on the apron. Angle rams Daniels into AJ and knocks him off the apron, then gets the Hacker Slam on Daniels and covers for 3.
Winner: Kurt Angle
AJ seems disappointed and Angle goes to shake his hand, but AJ just walks off while shaking his head.
Joey Ryan and Matt Morgan catch up with Hulk Hogan backstage, and Hogan says he's a fan of Ryan's work and says to turn the 87% and turn it into 97%. Hogan asks Morgan what his problem is and why he's been jumping people for months. Morgan says it's because Hogan told him he'd be a big star in his first promo in the company, but Hogan says he's been on Team Morgan since day one and fought for him in meetings with other members of TNA management even when they said he has no charisma. Morgan gets right up in Hogan's face and says he's going to take those criticisms and shove them right up Hogan's ass. Hogan watches him walk off and smiles.
We look back at Bound for Glory as Sting was inducted into the TNA Hall Of Fame, then we go to James Storm beating Bobby Roode in the blowoff to their year-long feud.
Speaking of Storm, he says that he was taught as a child that what goes around comes around. A year ago this very night, he became the World Champion, and at Bound For Glory, he and Roode kicked the crap out of each other. But for every ounce of blood he lost, he kept getting up for himself, his family, and his fans, and when he came back to TNA, he had a bucket list. #10 was to kick the crap out of Bobby Roode, #2 was to drink beer, and #1 was to win back the World Title, and next week, he's one of four guys who is in a match for the World Title, so...wait a minute, it's Bobby Roode, hobbling down to the ring and obviously still suffering the consequences of their match from this past weekend. Storm takes his jacket off as Roode gets into the ring to tell Storm that they made good on a promise: they both swore they would give everything they had at Bound For Glory. They kicked the crap out of each other, but when all was said and done, they had one of the bloodiest battles in the history of the wrestling business. Storm asks So Cal Val for a chair because it's a lot easier to kiss ass while you're sitting down. Roode says Storm should kiss his ass because it took him a year to beat Bobby Roode, but doing that brought him way up the pecking order, and he always needed Roode because he carried him. Storm became the champion because he let Storm have the opportunity, and despite his loss at Bound For Glory, Storm knows deep down that Bobby Roode will always be the better man. Storm says "nope" and superkicks Roode into next week, then stands over Roode's unconscious form and tells him that he's sorry about his damn luck.
Devon is backstage, and he's...PUMPING IRON! And Sting is...WALKING!
We see another clip from Sting's Hall of Fame induction, then it's main event time!
Devon vs Sting
Holy crap, Sting took his t-shirt off for this match! Devon jumps Sting as he gets into the ring, unloading with right hands and choking him in the corner. Devon with more hard right hands, but Sting connects with a clothesline and a flapjack, then kicks at Devon's legs. Devon dodges a Stinger Splash, but Sting quickly recovers and nails Devon with a right hand that knocks him silly before whipping him hard into the corner. Sting stomps on Devon's fingers and goes to the eyes, doesn't quite get Devon over with a clothesline, and covers by dumping him out to the floor as we go to commercial.
We're back and Devon has Sting in trouble, but Sting starts firing back on him, so he goes to the eyes. Devon chokes Sting on the middle rope and measures him before laying him out with a hard right hand. Devon continues working Sting over, hitting a diving headbutt for 2 before locking Sting down with a rear chinlock. Sting elbows his way out, but Devon connects with a flying back elbow before telling the crowd they're number one. Devon measures Sting and connects with another right hand, but misses a leaping headbutt off the second rope, and Sting begins to mount a comeback. Sting with a leaping clothesline and a Stinger Splash, then he hits the Scorpion Deathdrop and puts Sting in the Scorpion Deathlock, but devon manages to hold on until like seven guys from Aces & Eights run in to attack Sting.
Winner: Sting by DQ
Ken Anderson and Garett Bischoff run out, followed by the rest of the TNA guys who went after Aces & Eights at the beginning of the show. Bully Ray suddenly comes running out with a baseball bat, and Aces & Eights heads for the hill as we call it a week.
As noted before, Rey Mysterio has been pulled from this week's SmackDown Tour in Cairo, Egypt due to his recent illness. Mysterio commented on missing the tour.
"Would like to apologize to all the fans out in Cairo for not being able to attend the tour due to a serious illness! Really feel bad for missing this one, but promise to make the next tour. Enjoy! 1 luv Rey619"
C.M. Punk starts the show off with a monologue about how he hasn’t gotten the respect he thinks he deserves. He says that he is here to watch Seth Rollins defend the championship in a main event, the way a championship should, and that they are lucky he is there.
Byron Saxton starts off hyping the NXT championship match. Bo Dallas is coming out to have the first match of the night. He’s facing Johnny Curtis.
BO DALLAS vs. JOHNNY CURTIS
Curtis gets the worst in an early feeling out process, but Curtis turns it around. There’s a “Bo’s a Diva” chant. Dallas tries to make a comeback, but Curtis back body drops him halfway to the moon and follows with a knee drop from the ropes. Dallas fires up and beats Curtis silly. Dallas with a spear for the win.
WINNER: Bo Dallas in 4:10. Like many of Dallas’s matches, he spent most of it doing a good job making his opponent look good. Dallas is very good at that, but we still haven’t seen much of him on the attack. His enthusiasm is contagious.
Incredibly, Paige gets a bigger pop than Alicia Fox or Kaitlyn, and the crowd is chanting her name. Audrey Marie and Paige is an odd pairing.
KAITLYN & ALICIA FOX vs. PAGE & AUDREY MARIE – Tag Team match
Kaitlyn and Paige to start. Byron Saxton calls Kaitlyn “more experienced,” which is pretty funny if you know their histories. Kaitlyn sends Paige to the mat with her strength. Another lock-up and Paige uses her technical acumen to retaliate. Marie comes in and keeps Kaitlyn grounded. Marie with some clever headlocks to wristlocks to headlocks transitions.
Kaitlyn finally escapes and brings Maries into the corner. “We Want Paige” chant. Marie with a “Winnick Throw,” which impresses Regal quite a bit. Marie is still cornered. Marie is desperate for a tag. Marie with a jawbreaker to get Paige in against Fox. Paige just wrecks Fox, but Fox slips out of the lift-up DDT. Kaitlyn needs to make the save, and the action breaks down. Fox and Paige fly across the ring and bump Kaitlyn from the apron, then Paige rolls up Fox on the rebound for the win.
WINNERS: Paige & Audrey Marie in 6:15. Now, I know that the FSU setting is officially “Bizarro Land,” but Paige is super-over with the crowd. She’s like the female C.M. Punk. Well done match, and it was good to see a bit more of Audrey Marie. She has a lot of potential. It really feels like WWE is slowly winding down the “fashion model era” and trying to develop a real women’s wrestling division, albeit one no one ever actually sees on TV.
Backstage, Jake Carter does a bad job at putting the moves on some random woman. Trent Barreta comes in and calls him out on it. Carter acts like he turned her down, then challenges Barreta to a match. Baretta accepts for next week.
Backstage, Briley Pierce interviews Seth Rollins, who says that he’s been looking forward to his first title defense, and that he is excited, not nervous. C.M. Punk enters the picture just as Rollins says that McGillicutty “disrespected” him. Pierce runs away. Punk tells Rollins that holding the title won’t guarantee him respect. He gives Rollins a speech about how you can’t earn respect in the WWE, and Rollins needs to not respect MbGillicutty, not earn his respect, but to beat it out of him. Rollins takes it all in without saying a word.
DANTE DASH vs. LEO KRUGER
Kruger sits in the corner stroking his hair as Dash asks him to stand up. Kruger suddenly jumps out of the corner and beats Dash hard. Kruger keeps stroking and yanking on his hair, then he smashes his own face into the mat. He hits his odd finisher and the match is over.
WINNER: Leo Kruger in 2:30. Kruger has slowed it down, but he fills the space in the match with this thing with his hair that just doesn’t make sense.
Post-match, Kruger cuts a promo that combines his South African accent with a demented was of talking.
Outside, Briley Pierce interviews Michael McGillicutty. McGillicutty says he doesn’t care about respect, he cares about the title, and will go after Punk’s title after he beats Rollins.
There’s a big-match feel as the main event is introduced. The booth is William Regal, Jim Ross, and C.M. Punk. It is hard to imagine a better trio to be calling a match based on who WWE has under contract. Rollins is finally wearing his belt during his entrance. C.M. Punk comes in after Rollins to say that he will be taking a closer look tonight.
SETH ROLLINS vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY – NXT Title match
Lots of crowd support for Rollins after the bell. Punk lets Regal touch his WWE Title belt, and Regal says, “Thank you, that’s the closest I’ll ever get to it.” Rollins uses both speed and power to keep McGillicutty on his toes, and barely misses a Blackout attempt.
McGillicutty is controlling the match out of the break, but Rollins makes a comeback. Regal brings up the common comparisons between Rollins and Punk, and Punk says that Rollins needs to make his own way, not be the second C.M. Punk. Rollins almost teases McGillicutty as he sets up kicks, but McGillicutty sends him to the outside. McGillicutty makes the mistake of jawing at Rollins, letting Rollins get some traction, but McGillicutty crotches Rollins who ends up in a Tree of Woe. McGillicutty was a nasty chinlock from outside the ring while Rollins is hung up.
McGillicutty has Rollins grounded again. Rollins sends McGillicutty into the turnbuckle with a Russian Legsweep to start a comeback. Rollins sends McGillicutty to the outside and follows up with a suicide dive. Rollins rolls McGillicutty into the ring and looks for a springboard move, but McGillicutty counters with a dropkick. Camera shots of Punk shows that he is too invested in the match to talk. Enziguri puts McGillicutty down, but he misses the Blackout and then a followup roundhouse misses too. McGillicutty comes right back with a Saito Suplex for a pair of nearfalls.
McGillicutty can’t believe that he hasn’t won yet. McGillicutty looks for another suplex, but Rollins counts with an inside cradle for a nearfall. rollins gets flipped around on a clothesline for another nearfall. Punk doesn’t fault McGillicutty for getting frustrated since Rollins is absorbing so much offense. Rollins slips out of the Turning Heads neckbreaker, then responds with a unique move, something like a running springboard DDT that has to be seen to be believed. None of the announcers even try to name it. It’s good for the win.
WINNER: Seth Rollins in 13:10. Another outstanding, lengthy title match with Seth Rollins playing the underdog who can take a beating and survive to win. The announcing team was superb; Punk showed Rollins immense respect and support, while not taking anything away from McGillicutty. Regal and Punk had a lot of great banter, but they always closed their mouths at the perfect moment for J.R. to call the match.
Post-match, C.M. Punk stands up at the booth to clap for Rollins and look on in respect. Rollins stands on the turnbuckle and says that Full Sail is his house.
News on Paul Heyman's Status Posted by Steve Carrier on 10/18/2012 at 09:19 AM
- Regarding Paul Heyman's status with WWE, he is not working a full-time road schedule and there's no deal in place regarding a number of dates. He will be working some live events from here on out but not all of them.
The deal in place is that Heyman works all RAW TV shows plus likely all pay-per-views and other TV shows where CM Punk is appearing.
- Doug Williams, who currently works as trainer at Ohio Valley Wrestling, TNA Wrestling's developmental promotion, suffered an arm injury while competing at last Wednesday's OVW television taping. After stating that he may have suffered a partially torn bicep at worst, he noted Monday, "Arm getting better. Can lock it out again now if I do so slowly..."
The show opens up with highlights of last week’s Survival of the Fittest match between Adam Cole and Tadarius Thomas, which saw Cole pick up the win to advance to the Survival of the Fittest Finals.
Mike Bennett w/ Maria and Brutal Bob vs Davey Richards
Richards immediately kicks Bennett in the head and goes for a roll-up, but Bennett kicks out. Richards continues the hot start with a clothesline and an ankle lock, however Bennett reaches the ropes. Bennett rolls to the outside. Richards tries to run along the apron and kick Bennett, but “The Prodigy” pulls Maria in front of him. Richards chases Bennett around ringside, and Brutal Bob gets involved by punching Richards in the face. Richards and Bennett brawl around ringside. Back in the ring, Richards mocks Maria while he has Bennett in the Indian Death Lock. On the outside, Bennett spinebusters Richards against the corner of the apron as the show goes to break.
Back from commercial and Bennett is still in control as he hits a clothesline. They slug it out in the middle of the ring. Bennett gets the better of the exchange with a superkick. Richards clotheslines Bennett to the outside and then immediately connects with a suicide dive. They fight on the apron, and Richards misses a kick and hits the ring post. Bennett takes advantage of the situation with a spear on the apron. Richards is able to fight back and apply the ankle lock. Bennett fights out of it and sends Richards into the ropes where Maria slaps him. Mondo runs to ringside and sexually assaults Maria. Bennett chases Mondo to the back. When Bennett gets back in the ring he’s met with the alarm clock and a sliding kick, which is enough for Richards to pick up the three count and advance to the Survival of the Fittest Finals.
Winner by Pinfall: Davey Richards
ROHWorld.com’s Thoughts: This was a fine way to start the show. I don’t remember these two ever squaring off, and if they have it’s been a rare occurrence. They showed tremendous chemistry here and it made for a very good match. Bennett always looks good when he’s in the ring with talented performers, and Richards is more than capable of having good matches with anyone. Other than the Mondo interference, this was a great way to start the show. The interference did leave Bennett looking pretty good, though, as he was in control until Mondo distracted him. They are two-for-two thus far in delivering really good opening round matches for this year’s Survival of the Fittest.
Kevin Kelly says Tommaso Ciampa is scheduled to face Jay Lethal in a Survival of the Fittest match and he explains Ciampa’a injury from “Boiling Point.” Kelly says RD Evans has promised Ciampa will wrestle tonight.
Evans and Ciampa come to the ring, and Ciampa is on crutches. Evans says Ciampa suffered a torn ACL and meniscus at “Boiling Point.” Evans says Ciampa proved he was a warrior; a gladiator; a thoroughbred. Evans says you know what you do with thoroughbreds with broken legs; you shoot them. He introduces his new client: QT Marshall. Ciampa comes close to hitting the Project Ciampa on Evans but stops when he sees Marshall coming to the ring. Evans hits Ciampa from behind on the bad knee with Ciampa’s crutch. Marshall beats down Ciampa using the crutch.
QT Marshall w/ RD Evans vs Jay Lethal
Lethal hits a superkick the moment the bell rings. He quickly follows it up with a springboard dropkick and suicide dive! Lethal looks to be setting up another suicide dive, but Marhsall cuts him off with a tilt-a-whirl slam. Marshall goes for a pin, but the referee catches him with his feet on the ropes. A springboard crossbody and handspring back elbow momentarily gives Lethal the advantage, but Marshall answers back with a clothesline. Lethal hits a superkick out of nowhere and connects with the Lethal Combination. Evans distracts Lethal, but Prince Nana runs in and attacks Evans. Lethal hits the Lethal Injection to pick up the pinfall to advance to the finals of Survival of the Fittest.
Winner by Pinfall: Jay Lethal
ROHWorld.com’s Thoughts: This was Marshall’s best showing in Ring of Honor by far. If he is able to keep giving performances like this, he will stick around for a while. However he won’t always get to wrestle someone as talented as Lethal, so I’m going to have to see more out of Marshall before I begin to get too excited out of what I see from him. I was pleasantly surprised by this match.
It’s now time for Inside ROH. We see a clip of last week’s match between the BJ Express and Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team. Rhett Titus says he’s the guy who’s going to surprise everyone and take Kevin Steen’s World Title. We now see a clip of last week’s segment featuring Steen and Michael Elgin. Truth Martini says there is a plot against the House of Truth because Rhino and Elgin have to face each other in the Survival of the Fittest, and he asks either Rhino or Elgin to back out. Elgin and Strong talk about how they don’t like Martini.
ROH World Title Kevin Steen w/ Jimmy Jacobs (c) vs. Rhett Titus w/ BJ Whitmer
Steve Corino is on commentary and says after Steen punched a fan at “Boiling Point” he is not allowed at the affiliate’s dinner, and if Steen shows up he will be arrested.
Titus takes the fight to Steen when Steen is making his entrance. In the ring, Titus connects with a dropkick and follows it up with a dive over the top rope. Steen hits a rope-assisted elevated DDT, which gets a two count. Steen ties Titus in the Tree of Woe and hits the cannonball. Titus fights back with a big boot and clothesline combination. Steen pulls Titus to the outside and hits a pop-up powerbomb onto the ring apron. Back in the ring, Steen tries for a moonsault but Titus moves out of the way. Jimmy Jacobs tries to hit Titus with the spike but Whitmer stops him. Titus grabs the spike and tries to use it on Steen. Todd Sinclair stops him and this gives Steen the opportunity to hit a superkick. Steen follows it up with the F-Cinq and he gets the pin to retain the ROH World Title.
Another Update on Miz's Status for WWE Tapings Posted by Steve Carrier on 10/16/2012 at 08:19 PM
The Miz was cleared to return to the ring this afternoon following a second concussion test. The Miz tested negative for a concussion, so he's really lucky as he took a hell of a kick from Kofi Kingston last night.
WWE uploaded a video with Dr. Michael Sampson updating the condition of The Miz. Sampson confirmed earlier reports that Miz underwent evaluation backstage at Raw. He also required sutures to close a laceration to his head.
- As noted earlier, The Miz is scheduled to undergo more tests this afternoon to determine whether he would be able to defend the Intercontinental Championship against Kofi Kingston at tonight's WWE Main Event tapings. As of this morning, one person believed that he didn't suffer a concussion, only a head laceration. WWE is still promoting the match on their website and social networking as of this writing.
TNA Star Turns Down TNA Hall Of Fame Appearance?
reporting that TNA reached out to Ric Flair to appear over the weekend at the
first TNA Hall of Fame ceremony featuring the induction of Sting. Flair
reportedly turns down the invitation.
Raw this week is live from Nashville and we kick things off with a re-cap of last wek’s main event. We see a graphic of a tweet by CM Punk from earlier today. Big Show comes out and says 2 weeks ago he was in this very ring for a debate which was a clever joke put together by Booker T and Sheamus to make him look like a fool. But it was the WWE Universe who looked like fools. Everyone says he should watch out for The Brogue Kick then showed footage of what happened last week when Sheamus tried to Brogue Kick a giant. The look on his face was that of someone who was way in over his head. Then on Smackdown yet another scientific challenge. Brogue Kick vs KO Punch. He didn’t want to participate he didn’t want to embarrass Sheamus. Show says in 2 weeks he won’t be punching a machine, he’ll be punching the World Heavyweight Champion and he will become the new world champion. The largest world heavyweight champion in the world. He says he’s going to correct that mistake tonight. Show then asks for Daniel Bryan. One match, one knock out punch to erase his 45 second embarrassment. Backstage, AJ forces Daniel Bryan to go out to the ring and Kane laughs at him and he begins shouting NO and all the superstars in the back keep yelling YES

We see the graphic once more of CM Punk’s tweet making his decision on who he will face at HIAC and that is coming up next
Paul Heyman is in the ring and says tonight he is honoured to introduce a man who carries himself inside this ring with the very same integrity he carries himself outside the ring and is here tonight to deliver his decision on who he will face at HIAC and defend the WWE Championship, a championship which he has held for 320 days, CM Punk. Punk comes out. Punk takes the mic and says last week was a perfect microcosm of what his life has become. Somebody acts out of turn and questions his integrity and he doesn’t care who it is.. If anyone disrespects him verbally or physically, he will put them down. Last week it was Vince McMahon’s turn. He disrespected Punk and Punk slapped him in the face. He victimized McMahon in a way he feels comfortable letting the WWE Universe know that he will never compete in the ring again. It took two superstars to save him and then he forces Punk to decide who he will be facing at HIAC. Punk then shows the poster for HIAC and asks if the WWE Universe think he’s the devil but comparatively speaking, to the WWE Universe he’s an angel. He then talks about the devil he knows and doesn’t know. First is the devil he doesn’t know, Ryback. Who inserted himself in a conversation he has no part of. Then there’s the devil he knows very well. John Cena. So who will he choose? Punk then unveils the canvass. Punk then says since the fans are being disrespectful, he’s going to take a little more time. Vince McMahon comes out and says he’d hoped Punk would have learned something about respect and since Punk hasn’t made up his mind, McMahon is going to make up his mind for him. He says later tonight, there will be a contract signing and McMahon will decide Punk’s opponent and Punk’s fate at HIAC is now in McMahon’s hands.

Dolph Ziggler comes out and complains about Ryback being a contender and asks if anyone knows what he had to go through to earn his MITB. Every night, he comes out and steals the show. He defeated 7 other superstars to earn his MITB and says Ryback is a flash in the pan and a fly by night and in a month no one will even remember his name but Ziggler will still be here. He wants to face Punk, then cash in and win the World Title all in one night. Then David Otunga comes out and says he agrees, Ryback doesn’t deserve a title shot. But neither does Ziggler. But Otunga does and calls Ziggler a bleach blond show off who hangs out backstage with his mother. AJ comes out and says Otunga and Ziggler will face Ryback
Ryback vs Dolph Ziggler & David Otunga

The winner of the match: Ryback
Backstage: Paul Heyman approaches McMahon and tells McMahon about Punk’s decision and tells him what McMahon did last week defending his turf was Herculean. And tonight, McMahon-Punk once more and if Punk wins McMahon will allow Punk to choose his opponent. McMahon likes the idea but the match won’t be against Punk, it will be against Heyman.

Kingston comes out and Miz says Kingston must be nervous because he hasn’t been able to string 3 words in a sentence but it’s okay Miz will carry him. Kingston said it looks like Miz had to be carried out Wednesday and says he’s been here 5 years and been in meaningless tag team and playing second fiddle. Kingston will always be the guy who puts smiles on people’s faces while Miz will be the guy people will never forget. Kingston says he’s right maybe he needs to add some more memorable moments like this Wednesday when he beats Miz for the intercontinental title and it’ll be more than memorable. It will be must-see. And Miz forced Kingston to step it up so Kingston figures he’ll step it up tonight by having a match against Miz and Miz accepts but Kingston will do what he always does. Choke. Miz is the superstar while Kingston is the novelty act. Nobody cares about Kingston and all he is and ever will be is a guy who says boom boom boom and Kingston takes Miz down and unloads with punches.

Punk calls McMahon an egomaniac and signs his signature and says McMahon’s going to do whatever he wants but whoever McMahon picks Punk is going to do to them what he did to McMahon last week. McMahon says he brought this all upon himself. Cena says as of today, Punk has been champion for 330 days and he respects that achievement but from one man to another Punk needs to shut the hell up. Cena says he’d like nothing more than to compete against Punk in HIAc but then he looks at Ryback and wonders if he even cares about the title. Seems all he cares about is kicking someone’s ass and right now Punk needs to get his ass kicked. Cena starts a “Feed Me More” chant and Ryback steps forward and signs the contract to make it official and it will now be

As reported Saturday, WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race and his former protégé in World Championship Wrestling, Vader, engaged in a physical altercation at that day's "Legends of the Ring" convention in Monroe, New Jersey. According to Rob Feinstein, who witnessed the scuffle, tensions escalated after Race voiced his disapproval with Vader behaving belligerent toward fans.
Feinstein wrote on Facebook, "Vader was in a foul mood the entire day which is typical of him. He started to talk nasty to a few fans and Race did not approve. Race told Vader not to disrespect the fans as they are paying to see them. Vader made a smart ass comment which pissed Harley off. Harley who is crippled now struck Vader in the head with a punch. Vader when to strike back but instead hit a promoter who was standing near by. The promoter from what I told had to get a ice pack and Vader walked out of the room. That was basically how it went down and I am shocked that Vader would do that in front of the fans. I was waiting for Orndorff to do a run in."
