Daniel Bryan mentioned during an interview with SLAM Wrestling that back in 2010 he was fired from the WWE for spitting in John Cena's face when the Nexus attacked Cena on Raw.
"One of the reasons that I got fired in 2010 was for spitting in John's face; it was two things that got me fired -- it was choking Justin Roberts with a tie and spitting in Cena's face right before I kicked him in the head," Bryan said. "It was those two things."
This isn't part of the storyline to build for Bryan's SummerSlam match, as Bryan mentioned in a blog entry shortly after his departure that spitting in Cena's face was part of the reason he was let go.
"WWE is very serious about adhering to their PG guidelines, and apparently my actions during the NXT attack on John Cena, namely choking announcer Justin Roberts with his tie and spitting in Cena's face, crossed the boundaries of what is considered 'PG.' Perhaps the choking was too violent or perhaps the spit was too demeaning. I apologized for both immediately following the incident; but I would be a hypocrite if I apologized for putting everything I have into the attack. I would much rather have gone too far than to come up too short."
Several days after Bryan was release, Cena was asked about it during an appearance on Busted Open Radio.
"It stands where it is," Cena said. "I believe Bryan was given his release, and this is just my belief, it's complete speculation so basically you're going off my secondhand knowledge, it's something to do with violating our PG content agreement which is very serious… It was tough for us to get that [TV-PG] logo in the beginning. For us to violate that content agreement, we get in trouble with our TV providers, we get in trouble with our sponsors, it pretty much is not good business. I think that is the reason upon the Bryan Danielson release but on the same token, for a young man such as him to make an impact on the WWE Universe in that short a time, it says something about who he is as a person and where he belongs amongst our group."
WWE Smackdown Results August 16, 2013 San Jose, California Report by: Mike Tedesco of Wrestleview.com
"Then. Now. Forever." The WWE video leads us into the show.
The Smackdown video plays, and we go into the arena as Michael Cole and John "Bradshaw" Layfield welcome us to the show. Tonight, we'll see Big Show, Mark Henry, and Rob Van Dam take on The Shield. We'll also see Daniel Bryan take on Wade Barrett in a No Disqualification match.
The Wyatt Family makes their slow walk to the ring illuminated only by the faint glow of an electric lantern. A video airs that recaps the Wyatt Family's assaults on Kane. Bray Wyatt will face Kane in a "Ring of Fire" match at Summerslam.
Bray Wyatt is sitting in a rocking chair surrounded by his "family" consisting of Erik Rowan and Luke Harper. Wyatt bids hello to the crowd, and he says the men standing behind him are his brothers. Wyatt says they have come to the conclusion recently that their actions have been misinterpreted, so he wants to clarify a few things. He wants to tell a special little story.
Once upon a time there was a special little boy. This boy went to school like all the rest of the children, but kids can be so cruel. Even though this boy was bigger than all the rest of the children, he would cower to their harsh words. They would call him "freak" and beat him up. He would run home crying all for being himself. Then one day this little boy decided he was going to change the world. He would go to school and everything would be different, but instead of changing everything, he ran away. He found another little crutch to hide behind. This crutch gave him a new sense of power. It allowed him to be whatever he wanted to be. This crutch was a mask. Behind the mask, he gave himself a new name. That name was Kane. Behind that mask, he allowed himself to live this lie, and the people eat it up for no reason.
Wyatt yells no more lies. He knows who he is and what he is. He walks on water just to prove that he can. He'd bite the head off a snake just to taste the poison. Wyatt promises this Sunday he will prove to Kane that one man's hell is another man's paradise. Follow the buzzards!
Wyatt kneels down in the ring and extends his arms laughing. All of a sudden, the ring posts explode with Kane's fire. The Wyatt Family waits for him in the ring, but he doesn't come down the ramp. As they look toward the ramp, Kane pulls Erik Rowan out of the ring from behind, and he's sent into the ring post. Luke Harper tries to attack, but Kane sends him into the steel steps.
Kane then looks toward Bray Wyatt, who laughs and extends his arms. Kane gets in the ring, and he taunts Wyatt by sliding his thumb across his throat. Wyatt charges, and Kane puts him in the corner. Kane punches away at him and uppercuts him down. Rowan and Harper try to help out, but Kane takes them out with punches. Kane grabs Wyatt by the throat, but he has to go back to work on Rowan and Harper. Kane throws Harper over the top rope, and Wyatt takes him down with a back elbow. Harper and Rowan beat Kane down as Wyatt arks his back to look at him upside down. Wyatt then drops Kane with Sister Abigail. Wyatt kneels beside Kane and yells "Follow the buzzards!"

The Miz vs. Jack Swagger w/ Zeb Colter and Antonio Cesaro
Zeb Colter asks if the people remember the song, "Do You Know How to Get to San Jose?" Colter says he's been here for a few hours, and he wonders how you get out. Colter says that no one likes The Miz. Just like his adopted town of Hollywood, he's a phony and a fraud. He walks around with all two of his Hollywood friends with his head in the clouds, not realizing what is going on with real Americans. He's oblivious to what is going on. Miz should be ashamed, as should everyone in the building that they allowed the state to be overrun by illegal immigrants, criminals, freaks, and bad actors. If Hollywood had any sense, they would put Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro's names in the lights. Their story is real.

Brock Lesnar and himself conspired against Punk, and Punk picked up a camera and smashed Lesnar right in the face. Heyman says all Punk proved is how right he's been all along all these years when he hyped him as "The Best."
Summerslam has a very successful marketing plan this year. It's CM Punk's thirst for revenge against Paul Heyman and, most importantly, Brock Lesnar. That dynamic has shifted. This Sunday at Summerslam, CM Punk is now the target of revenge. That vengeance will come in the form of his "Beast" Brock Lesnar. Heyman then leaves the ring.

TNA Knockout Velvet Sky was scheduled to be in a match at last nights Hardcore Justice, teaming up with ODB to go up against Mickie James and Gail Kim. The match was changed to a triple threat between ODB, Gail, and Mickie, with TNA not acknowledging Velvets involvement with the match at all. TNA President Dixie Carter sent a direct message to a fan via twitter saying that Velvet was too sick to compete.
Former TNA Knockout Comments On Velvet Sky Not Appearing At HardCORE Justice
As some noted yesterday during the TNA Impact Wrestling HardCORE Justice Discussion, Velvet Sky was originally advertised to compete in a TNA Knockouts tag match with ODB against Gail Kim and Mickie James. Instead, the match turned into an impromptu 3 way.
"Talked to Velvet 2nite and wanna let everyone know she's fine she loves the fans support & concern but there's nothing to worry about! She's really sorry if she let anyone down for not being able to appear on the show tonight. Tons of love is being sent out to u all!"
It's one of the most dangerous nights in wrestling and when all was said and done at Hardcore Justice, the carnage told the tale. With ladders, tables, and more all before we even got to the big cage match for the World Heavyweight Championship between Chris Sabin and Bully Ray, viewer discretion was more than advised, it was demanded.
QUICK RESULTS: - Bound For Glory Series: Kazarian defeated Austin Aries, A.J. Styles, and Jeff Hardy in a Ladder Match to earn 20 points - O.D.B. defeated Gail Kim and Mickie James - Bound For Glory Series: Bobby Roode defeated Magnus, Samoa Joe, and Mr. Anderson in a Tables Match to earn 20 points - Cage Match: Bully Ray defeated Chris Sabin to win the World Heavyweight Championship after Tito Ortiz attacked Rampage Jackson
Check back for footage from Hardcore Justice and exclusive ringside photos!
FULL RESULTS: The ladders were out early tonight as Impact kicked off with an epic four way ladder match in the Bound For Glory Series. With 20 points hanging above the ring, it was four of TNA's finest battling for the advantage. All four brought their A-game and presented fans with a true classic. But while Jeff Hardy, Austin Aries, and AJ Styles were prepared for the ladders, they weren't prepared for Kazarian's partners, Christopher Daniels and Bobby Roode. At the height of the action, they arrived and managed hand off a questionable "Appletini" to Kazarian. He threw the concoction in Jeff Hardy's face, knocked him down from the ladder, and reached up to grab the victory (not to mention the points). Considering Bad Influence has been touting the importance of numbers in the Bound For Glory Series, these 20 points seem like pretty solid proof. The Main Event Mafia took to the ring next, only instead of Kurt Angle, they had TNA President Dixie Carter with them. Dixie announced that Kurt had entered a rehabilitation clinic two weeks ago. With the full support of TNA management, wrestlers, and fans, Angle's health is the most important priority for all of us. This does, however, leave a question mark on the scheduled match between Main Event Mafia and Aces and Eights next week.
Mr. Anderson doesn't like question marks. That's why he and his Aces and Eights brothers slowly walk to the ring to confront the Mafia. Anderson realizes that with one week to go until the tag match that sees the losing member leave TNA forever, the M.E.M. is down one member. He tells them to find a new one so they can get beat down fair and square next Thursday. This leads to a massive brawl but Aces and Eights, with the five on four advantage, lays the Main Eventers out in short order. It's almost definitely a preview of next weeks' Impact unless the Main Event Mafia can find a fifth member. Since switching back from a wild and drinkin' referee back to a wild and drinkin' wrestler, O.D.B. has been on one dirty roll. Facing off against two of TNA's finest Knockouts, she showed that she can still brawl with the best of them. Mickie and Gail may have found weapons under the ring, O.D.B found one under her shirt. In a truly rare moment, the former ref removed her bra and used it as a weapon. It left many speechless. But when she took Gail Kim straight down onto a steel chair, it left Gail motionless. Three seconds later and the Bra-barian reigns supreme. At this point, we head backstage. A crouching cameraman catches Bully Ray on the phone and that's when we hear this: "Honey, I agree with you. This has not been the normal relationship. It's anything but normal…Well, I'm glad to hear you say that…Just so we're on the same page, tonight is about me. Next week is about us. Your man is gonna go out there and win his World Heavyweight Title and destroy that boy. Then, I'm coming home and we're celebrating. And you know exactly how Calvezilla likes to celebrate…Next week, we tell the world the truth. Alright. Me too…I love you too, Brooke."
It's been a night of frustration for the Main Event Mafia. With Kurt Angle out of the five on five match, the group has been searching for a new member without success. Rampage Jackson takes to the ring and, alongside Samoa Joe, presents an idea. What about Tito Ortiz? He has a lot in common with Jackson. As an MMA fighter, he knows what it's like to be called a "sell-out" by MMA fans for joining TNA. They don't know that professional wrestling is more than a hobby to him, it's a passion. Rampage is proud to be a part of TNA and the Main Event Mafia's family. Now it's time for Tito to be part of it too. Tito Ortiz shows up and Rampage gets the elephant in the room out of the way. Everyone knows that Tito and Jackson are fighting on November 2nd at the Bellator MMA pay-per-view. But that's there and this here. Here, Rampage isn’t looking to throw hands with Tito. He's looking to shake hands with Tito. Rampage extends the offer to his MMA opponent, here in TNA, to be a part of the family and fight back Aces and Eights with the Main Event Mafia. Ortiz looks like he's seriously considering the offer. Then, just as he's about to give his response…
Bully Ray arrives with a microphone and smiles at this scene. Unfortunately, he has a title match tonight or else he'd be free to beat up both MMA superstars at once. Ray threatens to make Tito Ortiz his "Huntington Beach Bitch"if they ever cross paths. This sends Tito into a blind rage. He's held back by Joe and Rampage as Bully walks off . Our second Bound For Glory Series bout was a table match with another 20 points on the line as Magnus, Mr. Anderson, Samoa Joe, and Bobby Roode faced off. At first glance, Roode appears to be the odd man out, with two Main Event Mafia Members and one member of their rival Aces and Eights in the match. But, appearances may be deceiving. Roode had a secret numbers advantage of his own. For the second time tonight, Bad Influence showed that they may have cracked the Bound For Glory Series numbers code. Kazarian and Daniels appear just as Magnus positions Bobby for a superplex. Bottoms up, buddy. They toss another Appletini into Mag's face and allow Roode to reverse him into a powerbomb through the table. Yup. It pays to be Roode and it pays to have friends. How much does it pay? 20 points in the Bound For Glory Series.
When the cage was lowered for the main event, the tension was at an all time high. Chris Sabin was no longer the underdog looking to upset a complacent champion. He's the World Heavyweight Champion with a seething, frustrated, and volatile former champion itching to make an example of him. While Sabin was valiant in his fight, Bully lived up to his name. He tore into Chris with a level of violence few can endure. Sabin held on and eventually took control from the arrogant outlaw. But when referee Brian Hebner got caught in the crossfire, the champ's night took a turn for the worse. That's when Mr. Anderson arrived. The Aces and Eights Vice President stopped Sabin from exiting the cage and retaining the title. He held the door and prevented Chris from re-opening it. Luckily Rampage Jackson and Tito Ortiz were on hand. The two apparent partners rushed to the cage. Jackson tossed Anderson away from the door and Tito took out a hammer… Which he used to bash Rampage Jackson in the back of the head!!!!
Yes. You read that right. Tito Ortiz laid out Rampage Jackson with a hammer to the head!!!
Rampage hit the floor and Bully took advantage of a shocked Chris Sabin. Bully Ray powerbombed the champion and, three seconds later, he wasn't the champion anymore. Aces and Eights have a reason to celebrate. Their President is our new champion. Bully Ray holds aloft his World Heavyweight Championship and TNA's nightmare begins again! For the second time in less than a month, Tito Ortiz shocks the wrestling world as Impact comes to a close.

Reby Sky Lashes Out at Former WWE Diva Posted by Steve Carrier on 08/10/2013 at 09:05 AM
In her new YouShoot with Kayfabe Commentaries, former WWE Diva Kharma refers to Matt Hardy's fiancee Reby Sky as a "hoe" and places her name in the "Hoe Bag." Reby responded on her Ask.fm account:
"Not aware of this, if it is true. Doesn't make much sense, as I don't know her on a really personal level & we have been nothing but nice to each other in passing at shows. We've actually texted back & forth a few times, so if she now has a problem with me, I can only attribute it to one thing/person. Fake as f*** to be nice to my face & talk shit to a camera if its true, but no shocker there. That's 99% of the women in this business anyway. Next."
She also responded to a fan and commented on wrestlers doing shoot interviews:
"Broke wrestlers doing "shoot" interviews for a couple hundred bucks to support their drug habits can KEEP mentioning me. Everyone knows I'm in an AMAZING committed relationship & love a good name drop :)"
Another fan later asked if she was calling Kharma a drug addict. Reby replied:
"And for the record, yes, that's exactly what I'm saying, and for damn good reason. No use in continuing to play nice or protect anyone who is sweet to my face & a cunt to me & my close friends behind my back."
