WWE officials are looking to bring back some mid-card talents but they have not reached out to anyone yet. Some of the names discussed included Benjamin, MVP, Gavin Spears, Cliff "Domino" Compton and others.
One other name that was mentioned is Billy Gunn. It was reported earlier this week that he has been re-hired as a developmental trainer but that's not confirmed. No word yet if they plan on using Gunn on TV.
- Ted DiBiase has put out feelers for acting gigs but reportedly is not interested in moving to Los Angeles. DiBiase is one of the names who have been talking about leaving WWE. Word going around was that he was staying with WWE until the end of the year and then would make a decision about his future.
WWE officials are looking to be more edgier with RAW. The feeling is that Vince McMahon isn't behind the new push but obviously is on-board with it. Vince realizes that numbers are down and it's said that he is open to suggestions.
With the low ratings, WWE officials want to put out a product that's a little different than what we've seen over the past year or so. We can also expect to see more wrestling-heavy WWE programming.
- There are reports that WWE has signed former DX member Billy Gunn (Kip Sopp) as a NXT developmental trainer. Gunn has done some work with developmental talents at NXT earlier this year and it was reported after RAW 1000 that officials may bring him back as a trainer.
TNA Wrestler Kurt Angle, who suffered a
groin injury at last Sundays Final Resolution Pay Per View, posted a brief
injury update on his Official
“Injury Will take a
few Weeks,” Angle noted of his recovery time from the injury to a follower. He
later wrote, “Hey my friends. Got a little Injury. But, I Will Be Back Very
Soon. Thanks for Your tweets. Much Love. TNA! God Bless.”

We see a hype promo for Final Battle with Davey Richards, who says he doesn't know if Eddie Edwards will show up at Final Battle, but he does know this, THE HUNT IS ON!!!
Back from commercial as we are backstage with S.C.U.M. Jimmy Jacobs has a mic and says that new matchmaker Nigel McGuinness is trying to do something on his 1st day on the job, by putting S.C.U.M. in a 3 way match at Final Battle for the ROH Tag Team Titles against the Briscoes & C & C. He calls it Sudden Death. The irony is, it hasn't been a sudden death for Ring of Honor. Its been slow over the last few months, S.C.U.M. has had all the belts here in ROH.
Steve Corino says that didn't that stinking, tall, washed up, limy Nigel McGuinness think that Jim Cornette was bad enough? Didn't you think that everything that has been done to S.C.U.M. over the last few years has been enough? Now, you wanna go beyond a 3 way sudden death match. What you fail to realize, Nigel, is how smart we are. We didn't get to the top by kissing babies and slapping hands. We are the tag team champions, Kevin Steen is the world champion because of our brains. We'll find a way out, Nigel, we always do.
Kevin Steen says he knows Nigel McGuinness, I know you think by bringing Generico in, you've done something smart, you've done something that's gonna pay off. Not only that, but you've put a ladder between us. And you're hanging MY Ring of Honor World Title high above the ring, in hopes that Generico will finally get to do what nobody has been able to do. Well Nigel, all you did is ruin Generico's career.
Back to the ring as Nigel McGuinness joins Kelly & Seltzer at the commentary table and talks about why he made the match between Steen & Generico at Final Battle.
We then see a video package highlighting Steen & Generico as a tag team, with their tag title win over the Age of the Fall in 2008. We then see when Steen turned on Generico at Final Battle 2009. From there, we see highlights of the Steen-Generico feud involving Steve Corino & Colt Cabana in 2010 that culminated in their Final Battle match in 2010 where Steen lost and was exiled from ROH. We move to Steen invasions of ROH shows in 2011 leading to him being reinstated at Final Battle 2011 in which afterwards, he Package Piledrived Generico thru a table. We move on to see video of the "La Revancha!" match with Steen & Generico at Showdown in the Sun in which Jimmy Jacobs turned on Generico and aligned with Kevin Steen. Finally, we see video of Glory by Honor XI when Steen opened a package that had an El Generico mask inside.
Back from commercial and before the next match, Jay Lethal grabs a mic. Lethal says at least someone cares about me, responding to the crowd chanting for him. Apparently, I've become the new whipping boy in ROH. When my parents got spat on, I gave ROH exactly what they asked for, some Killer Instinct. And now, all of a sudden, I'm getting fined, getting chewed out in the ROH offices and now to make matters worse, at Final Battle, I have to sit back and watch El Generico get the title shot that I deserve. Meanwhile, I have to wrestle Rhino in a match that win, lose or draw, I have nothing to gain. Why am I wrestling Rhino? For what? I shouldn't even do it, but I will. I'll tell ya what, I'm gonna take matters into my own hands, at Final Battle, I promise to wrestle Rhino, but I also promise that I will fight the World Champion at Final Battle in New York City. I'm promising that, no matter who wins, whether its Kevin Steen or El Generico, I promise to fight the Ring of Honor World Champion and there's nothing anybody can do about it, not even Nigel McGuinness.
Lethal then attacks Chris Silvio, his opponent for this week, and the bell sounds, leading to....

Both men exchange right hands until Silvio with a gut kick. Lethal reverses a whip, but Silvio sidesteps a back drop attempt. Lethal then with the hiptoss/cartwheel/front dropkick combo, followed by a clothesline that sends Silvio to the outside. Lethal goes out after Silvio, but Silvio with a right hand.

Silvio comes back and sends Lethal back in, but then Lethal with a springboard dropkick that knocks Silvio off the apron. Lethal with a head of steam and takes out Silvio with a tope dive. Crowd chants for Lethal as he sends Silvio flipping into the barricade. Lethal sends Silvio into the barricade again, then hits a right hand. Back in the ring, Lethal gains a nearfall. Lethal with a back suplex for another nearfall. Silvio reverses a whip, then misses a clothesline, but then hangs up Lethal in the ropes and hits a swinging neckbreaker while Lethal was on the apron.
Silvio with right hands, followed by a kick to the back. Silvio with more right hands, charges and connects with a charging forearm. Silvio then removes one of his wristbands and proceeds to choke Lethal with it. Silvio with crossface shots, then chokes Lethal with the wristband again before gaining a nearfall. Lethal fights back, but Silvio with a knee. Lethal blocks a corner whip, then reverses another attempt, ducks under a clothesline and hits a leaping forearm.

Lethal drills Silvio with a superkick as Silvio gets to his feet, then Lethal with a Cradle DDT, the same one used on Homicide back in September, on Silvio for the victory.
Winner: Jay Lethal by pinfall (Lethal Injection)
"Inside Ring of Honor"
We 1st hear from Fish & O'Reilly about Final Battle, as Fish says he spoke to Eddie Edwards while they were teaming in Japan and while Edwards doesn't like O'Reilly that much, the Wolves are done. O'Reilly says there's not gonna be an American Wolves reunion at Final Battle, it will be burial. There will be a rise of a new great tag team and Davey, you're on your own.
We go to Davey Richards, who says O'Reilly fooled everybody a few weeks ago. I thought you had the fight in you, you're a sheep, you exposed yourself. Congrats on finding another sheep in Bobby Fish. I'm looking for a Wolf, I'm looking for my brother, I'm looking for the most destructive tag team to ever step foot in an ROH ring. Some people may not have faith in Eddie Edwards, O'Reilly & Fish are counting on Eddie not being my tag partner, but I know my brother, I know Wolves, we hunt in packs. Maybe he shows up, maybe he doesn't, but come Final Battle, be it a tag match or a handicap match, I leave with the sheep's heads in a basket.
We move on to hear comments from C & C, as Cedric Alexander says the Briscoes say that their 7-time ROH Tag Team champions, but C & C is on a roll. This is our time to be the tag team champions. Caprice Coleman says maybe the Briscoes haven't been paying attention. A couple weeks ago, we beat Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team, the same team that put you in the hospital. We are here to show that this train is on board. Caprice sings "So people, get ready, the train is coming, the conductors are us, so get on board".
We hear from the Briscoes as Jay says that C & C is indeed on a roll, y'all hot stuff. Caprice singing songs, well soon, y'all gonna be singing a different tune. Mark sings "Caprice & Cedric, Corino & Jimmy, #DemBoys is gonna put a foot in your hind parts". Jay says C & C beat Haas & Benjamin, hats off to you, we beat the Headbangers. So, at Final Battle, 3 teams in there, C & C may think they hot stuff, but we walking outta that b***h 8-time ROH Tag Team Champions.
We see a hype promo for Final Battle with Truth Martini, who implores ROH fans, or the "good Christian folks at home", to call & e-mail to say that Elgin vs. Strong at Final Battle should not happen.
Back from commercial as Steve Corino joins Kelly & Seltzer at the commentary table for our main event.

I keep hearing Jay Lethal complaining about how he didn't lose to me, yet he's never getting another title shot.
"Jay Lethal, that is your own idiot mother's fault, bud".
Steen goes to continue to talk, but then Jay Lethal rushes out to the ring, but is stopped by numerous referees and security before he can get in the ring and after Steen. S.C.U.M. taunts Lethal, who is yelling at Steen, as we go to credits.
It was reported Saturday that some familiar faces
could be returning to WWE in the coming months as there has been a
push from several top talents for the organization to bring back some "solid
hand" wrestlers that were previously released. Two specific names in mind are MVP and Shelton Benjamin as organization officials
have discussed bringing the former Superstars back to the fold.
being released from WWE in April 2010 in a cost-cutting measure, Benjamin has
kept busy in Ring of
Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling. MVP also competes in New Japan, where he teams with Benjamin under
the tag team name "Black Dynamite."

His Money in the Bank briefcase is hanging high. Ziggler says he's right where he belongs - at the top.

Update On John Morrison/Melina Domestic Dispute Posted by Steve Carrier on 12/09/2012 at 04:26 PM
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com reported on November 18 that former WWE wrestlers John Morrison and Melina were involved in a domestic dispute the prior weekend, resulting in police being summoned to the residence they share in Los Angeles, California. He said details of the story would likely be published on TMZ.com, but ultimately, was not acknowledged. In a post on the F4WOnline.com message board Saturday, Meltzer explained why additional details regarding the incident have not been revealed.
"There was an incident reported to them (TMZ) but no police report to back it up so you can't really go forward with the story," wrote the Wrestling Observer editor. "Same reason I haven't said anything. I checked with police and if they were called, there was no report."
Since news of the incident surfaced online, Morrison has continued performing at wrestling events and comedy clubs. Perez, on the other hand, has continued to remain out of the public spotlight entirely. She last appeared at a wrestling show on October 12 in Tijuana, Mexico, accompanying Morrison for a match. She stopped tweeting a few days prior, and subsequently canceled an autograph signing she was scheduled to appear at later that month.
As seen earlier this week, WWE posted a video on YouTube looking back at Colt Cabana's time in WWE as Scotty Goldman. This has caused a lot of speculation online about Colt returning to the company.
Word going around is that the video was likely added as part of a potential feature on Jewish Superstars that was pitched for the Hanukkah season. WWE's website published a feature on most memorable Jewish stars earlier this weekend and Goldman was on the list. Unless it's being kept a secret, PWInsider reports that there are no talks between Cabana and WWE at this time.
Former Stars Returning Posted by Steve Carrier on 12/08/2012 at 03:53 PM
- Some familiar faces could be returning to WWE in the coming months as there has been a push from several top talents for the organization to bring back some "solid hand" wrestlers that were previously released.
With the lack of depth on the main roster, WWE officials are giving serious consideration to the suggestion. Individuals they have in mind would be of the mid-card variety to assist younger talent, as well as provide solid performances for the company.
There is a short list of potential names WWE is interested in, but no one has been contacted yet.
TNA Interested In Former WWE Trained Luchador
Observer is reporting that TNA has shown some interest in bringing in WWE
trained luchador El Hijo Del Medico Asesino who wrestled unmasked as Benicio
Salazar in WWE developmental promotion, FCW. The report goes on to day that TNA
believes it would be easier to have a luchador with some training in the
domestic television style and because he worked for the WWE, would already have
his immigration documentation ready.

Results from the Final Resolution Pay-Per-View
James Storm vs. Kazarian The Pay-Per-View opened with James Storm calling out Bobby Roode but instead Kazarian entered to call out James Storm but turned into a match between the two grapplers. The match initially started outside but was brought into the ring where the ref was able to officially start the bout. Kazarian seemed to focus on the head and neck of the Cowboy and was able to work Storm into a choke hold. The two were able to wear down on each other but Storm came out with the upper hand and nearly landing a last call super kick, but was stopped when Kazarian ducked behind the ref. This effort by Kazarian wasn’t enough to stop Storm. After failing to implement the fade to black finisher, Kazarian was taken out by the last call superkick and was pinned by Storm.
X DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP: Kenny King earned the #1 Contendership to face RVD for the X Division Championship on Thursday’s IMPACT WRESTLING. The Matchup Started with the two shaking hands then locking up with RVD who was able to get King into a side headlock. The two exchanged holds with brief spurts of explosive moves from the two. King led into an impressive near pinfall to get things in his favor leading to Van Dam leaving the ring to slow down the momentum of King. Upon entering the ring RVD began working on King’s left leg to wear him down. When attempting to go high risk, RVD was taken out by King who kicked him causing him to fall from the top rope onto the ground. King brought RVD back in for a near pinfall. After some wearing down RVD made an attempt at two near pinfalls. The two went back and forth with neither successfully able to get the 3 count. After a monkey flip and a rolling thunder Van Dam was going for the five star frog splash but was stopped by King. However, things did not stay in King’s favor as RVD performed a body scissors into the cover to get the pin for the win and retain the X Division Championship.
WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: Joey Ryan And Chavo Gurerrero faced off in the ring but at the start Joey Ryan didn’t seem to keen on locking up with Guerrero, finally things sped up leading to Hernandez and Guerrero breaking down the sleezy superstar. Ryan managed to tag in Morgan who basically manhandled Guererro leading to Hernadnez and Morgan facing off in a pushing match with each trying to knock the other down. Finally Morgan managed to clothesline Hernandez to knock him down and tag in Joey Ryan. Hernandez put Ryan into a vertical suplex. Hernandez and Chavo traded off on wearing down Ryan with few opportunities for an offense from Ryan. After some work Ryan was able to tag in Morgan to wear down Chavo and allow for Ryan to come in and get back to work on him. The two worked together to wear down Chavo before Hernandez got back into the game and faced off with Ryan. After some back and forth it came down to Chavo Guerrero who jumped off the top rope for a near pinfall on Ryan but was abruptly stopped by Morgan who pulled out the ref from the ring to stop the count. The match was thrown out and the two teams ended up brawling with Hernandez getting the last move in.
BULLY RAY VS. AUSTIN ARIES At the start of the match Aries immediately slid outside the ring to make sure that Bully’s chain was not close to be used as a weapon. Aries managed to do a few things that seemed to make Bully angrier than he obviously already was. Bully Ray went to work on Aries, but Aries managed to turn things around to break him down for many near pinfalls. Aries even took a moment to mock the general manager Hulk Hogan during his series of offenses on the Bully. Aries wasn’t able to wear him down enough to prevent Bully from landing a brutal missile drop kick. After getting knocked outside the ring Aries attempted a suicide dive that was stopped abruptly by Bully’s foot. After some in ring action, things ended up back outside the ring and at some point caused Bully to start bleeding. As Bully was bleeding in the ring Brooke Hogan Came in to aid Bully, however, she was taken by Aries into the ring. Bully stopped Aries who got Brooke to leave with Hulk Hogan, who was at ringside c to assist. As Bully was distracted Aries got a low blow in and was able to get the pin for the win.
KNOCKOUTS CHAMPIONSHIP: The two locked up with the advantage shifting quickly from one to the other with no shortage of hair pulling. Early on Tara wanted to call for a time out. Mickie seemed to have the advantage for the most part. When things seemed dire, Jesse pulled Tara out of the ring but Mickie kicked them both down. Tara was able to get control but after a counter Mickie had the pin on Tara, but referee Taryn Terrell was distracted by Jesse. Favor went back to Tara for a short time but Mickie did not back down and the extremely physical matchup continued with Jesse again pulling out Tara from harms way though Mickie was there to jump onto Tara from the top rope. Tara was able to get the three count after a widows peak taking advantage of Mickie being distracted by Jesse.
ACES & EIGHTS VS. KURT ANGLE, SAMOA JOE, GARETT BISCHOFF & WES BRISCO The Captains, Devon and Kurt Angle faced off to start things out then things changed up when Samoa Joe and Doc were tagged in. Samoa Joe was able to man handle him at the start. Garett and another Member were the next to face off with things going back and forth between these two. Next up is Wes Brisco who faces another anonymous member of Aces and 8s. Joe came back in and faced off with Devon where Devon maintained the advantage despite Joe’s attempts. DOC and Devon and the anonymous Aces and 8s members tagged in and out to tear down Samoa Joe. Joe was able to get things together enough to tag in the Olympic Gold Medalist to take out the Aces and 8s members in the ring but it lead to all out warfare with everybody fighting. Angle managed to get the pin after some close moments and being nearly taken out by DOC who was stopped by Garett and Wes Brisco.
ONE FINAL TIME Christopher Daniels vs. "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles A lot of bitter feelings came to a head in this final match between the two former friends. The match started out with each man being fairly cautious making calculated moves. Each time things seemed to elevate Styles worked to slow things down by taking time outside of the ring. The two worked on each other with a hits and submission moves. AJ Styles managed to pick up the obvious advantage for some time but Daniels was able to turn it around and tear apart AJ. The two went hard at it with Styles getting cut open, which seemed to light a fire and allow him to unleash a series of offenses on Daniels who remained resilient. Styles attempted to finally finish things off with a Styles Clash off the top ropes however it was reversed by Daniels who was able to actually land a Styles Clash on him and get the three count for the win against the Phenomenal one.
MAIN EVENT: WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: The crowd was very much behind Jeff Hardy for the Main Event of the night. Roode went in after Hardy very heavy beating him into the corner and continuing it throughout the ring. The favor went to Hardy who kept the momentum for some time until Roode was able to pick up near pinfalls and pick up favor in this matchup. Roode was able to keep things going his way for a big part of the match and he worked at slowly tearing down Hardy. After taking too long to make his move up off the top rope Hardy managed to pick up some momentum but it was very short lived. The brutal match continued and it seemed neither competitor wanted to let up. Things seemed questionable for Jeff Hardy after missing a jump off the stairs and landing on the guardrail instead. Roode tried to capitalize on the injured Hardy but he managed to kick out. Roode tried one more time to capitalize but was kicked off the top by Hardy who landed a Swonton Bomb but was unable to make it for the cover. A weakened Hardy was gored by Roode who went for the cover but could not get the pin. Roode who was distracted by The Aces and 8s who just showed up was taken out by Hardy with a twist of fate and able to get the 3 count for the win to retain the title. Directly following the match the Aces and 8s took out Hardy. Roode began yelling about how he paid the group on Thursday and said he should be champ now… so the group proceeded to take out Bobby Roode as well.
