Neville must be pissed right now

If there was on “WWE has come to terms with” story I’ve been ready to write for a few days now, it was Neville’s.

The former NXT and Cruiserweight champion has been absent from our screens since he reportedly walked out ahead of Raw on Oct. 9. Even with word coming down that Vince McMahon was incensed by the move and might be angry enough to keep Neville to his contract and prohibit him from working elsewhere, I surely wasn’t the only fan hoping that something could be ironed out between the two parties. Mostly, this was a selfish desire based in how much I like to watch the former PAC perform… but there’s some concern for Neville’s family and The Chairman’s eternal soul in there, too (I think).

Anyway, when I heard the news that Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae were “future endeavored”, I figured we might get a glimmer of good news amidst the crushed dreams and heartbreaking tweets.

Maybe, the next update would read “WWE has come to terms on the release of Benjamin Satterley”? Then, after a few non-compete agreement-dictated months of inaction, spent resting and relaxing with Mrs. Satterley, PAC would re-emerge in Evolve, or Japan.

Or, as my colleague Kyle Decker said in our virtual offices this afternoon:


Several hours after the last bulletin, there is no info about The Man That Gravity Forgot.

This doesn’t necessarily Neville will be getting the full Rey Mysterio treatment from Vince and WWE. But it’s probably not a good sign that the company didn’t include him with an unexpected Sunday afternoon news dump.

Perhaps Neville’s release will come tomorrow, or maybe he’ll even fly onto television as a surprise member of Team Raw. But it seems more likely the freeze out will continue, as McMahon makes an example of his former Cruiserweight King.

I’ll be over here hoping it’s all a work.

Returning Superstar Expected to Make Return on WWE Raw This Week

Photo Credit: YouTube.com

According to PWInsider.com, Nia Jax is scheduled to be at tomorrow’s taping for WWE Monday Night Raw, which takes place in Baltimore, MD.

Jax has been off television for several weeks, although the exact reason why has been heavily speculated on. Depending on which report you read, she’s either been taking time off to deal with nagging injuries, unhappy with her position in the company, she walked out of Raw because The Rock told her to do it, or she wasn’t even at Raw to walk out in the first place. At this point, we don’t care – we’re just happy Nia will be back on TV soon.

Backstage News on Production of Smackdown’s WWE Raw Invasion

Wwe raw

Last week’s edition of WWE Raw contained quite the surprise ending, with the Smackdown Live roster firing the first shot in the WWE brand war which will end at Survivor Series.

According to PWInsider.com, the filming of the invasion angle actually took place earlier in the day on Monday, and was not a live segment.

The Smackdown roster was instructed to make their attack look as brutal as possible, in order to make the segment come across more realistic. One of the segments in the attack actually had to be reshot, because some of the punches being thrown looked too “worked” and not realistic enough for TV.

The battle for WWE brand supremacy will come to a head at Survivor Series, when team Raw faces team Smackdown in a 5 on 5 traditional Survivor Series elimination match.

Lio Rush Apologizes For Joking About Emma’s WWE Release, Jack Gallagher Puts Him on Blast

Emma

As previously reported, WWE announced the release of several Superstars today including Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae. NXT newcomer Lio Rush then made some careless remarks on Twitter, “joking” about Emma not being “ready for Asuka” which provoked an immediate response from many of his WWE colleagues.

Rush has since deleted the original tweet and posted the following apology:

“At the end of the day there’s a certain level of respect within professional wrestlers in the sports & ENTERTAINMENT industry that is noted within peers. With that being said, Emma I respect you and everything that you’ve done for our business. It saddens me that the ‘controversial tweet’ got completely blown out of proportion and looked at in a very insensitive way. As a family man with a 4 year of son expecting another, I would never laugh or mock the fact of someone loosing there job because of how it can affect self person and there families. Whatever the situation may be regarding the release. You’re an amazing performer and respected athlete by yours truly and I’m sure you will excel beyond expections. To my fans who may have seen this as inappropriate as well as Emma’s fans, I apologize and I love you ALL regardless of the responses. On Behalf of myself and the WWE Goodluck!”

We’re not exactly sure how else to look at his original tweet (sent less than half an hour after Emma lost her job) besides “insensitive”, but at least Rush is sorry…that it got “blown out of proportion”. Apparently several members of the WWE roster didn’t buy into the apology either, including 205 Live Superstar Jack Gallagher and Dash Wilder.

– Gallagher: “Apologizing because people didn’t like your joke, not for joking about someone losing their job. Also, try the English classes at the PC.”

– Wilder: “So busy trying to be a comedian, you forget you’re a dumbass.”

Lio Rush makes light of Emma’s release, gets yelled at by everyone, and then apologizes

In our age of social media, everybody, it seems, has a reaction to everything. Emma’s release was no different, and NXT’s Lio Rush took to Twitter to comment on the matter and well… he had jokes.


M.O.T.H. on Twitter

It’s an obvious joke, and the amusement value of it is definitely subjective, but the timing, well, folks didn’t take to a wrestler still in WWE’s employ and so low on the proverbial totem pole making a joke about a fellow talent’s release.

And boy did he hear it. From former WWE Superstars…

…to independent wrestlers…

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

…to his own fellow NXT Superstars.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

In the end, Lio did post a lengthy apology and, at the urging of Taz, deleted the original.

All’s well that ends well? Well… maybe not, because his apology has drawn a mixed reaction itself.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

There you have it, folks

Lio is an incredible wrestler already at the age of 22 to be sure, but it seems as though he has a way to go to learn to navigate social media etiquette and WWE locker room politics.

For Halloween, Breezango (and of course they were followed by the Ascension) made their way into the woods to tape a second Fashion Files this week. With Halloween just two days away, this is spoofing the Blair Witch Project as Fandango is out late looking for his lost cat.

It’s the same goofiness as you would expect on the usual Tuesday installments. The Ascension continue to deliver. We get a surprise appearance from another SmackDown wrestler. But personally, it’s the opening Blair Witch Project style explanation of the video that is my favorite part.

Lio Rush Takes Unnecessary Shot at Emma Shortly After WWE Release, NXT Superstar Fires Back

Emma

Earlier today it was reported that Emma had been released from her contract with WWE, after more than six years with the company.

While many from the wrestling world have been pouring out their support for Emma, as well as Darren Young and Summer Rae who were also let go, it took Lio Rush all of half an hour to take an unnecessary shot at the Australian star.

“I guess these are the things that happen when you’re not TRULY ready for Asuka,” the 22-year-old developmental newcomer taunted on Twitter shortly after news broke. Emma’s final matches in WWE were against the debuting “Empress of Tomorrow”, who had spent more than 500 days as women’s champion in NXT before Rush even made his debut.

Several members of the roster are apparently unhappy with his comments. Peyton Royce fired back stating, “Wow kid. Didn’t you just get here? Professionalism goes a long way.”

Social media posts from Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae give clues on WWE releases

So much for a quiet pro wrestling Sunday. Seemingly out of nowhere today (Oct. 29), the WWE took pro wrestling’s proverbial snow globe and gave it a good shake.

With longtime WWE wrestlers Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae all being released on the same random Sunday, the question becomes were any of the departures connected?

Also, did any of the three WWE veterans expect to be released anytime soon?

Some of the latest social media posts from Emma, Rae and Young give a little more context into why they are longer employed by the WWE.

From October 27th on Friday morning, Emma had this to say about the upcoming weekend.

Shoot name Tenille Dashwood, the 28-year-old Australian born wrestler has always been into modeling outside of the ring. The photo above could mean Emma is simply excited for the weekend or ready for a fresh start in her wrestling career, depending on how you read the tea leaves.

Over the past 72 hours, Rae was a little more cryptic or philosophical with her latest social media posts.

From Thursday October 26th, Rae had this to say about life or flowers.

“You need to understand that life isn’t what you’re given; it’s what you create, what you overcome, and what you achieve that makes it beautiful.”

Real name Danielle Moinet would follow-up on her overcoming struggles theme with a post from late Saturday night.

Never trippin’ off the past, I would rather never mind ’em. Cuz only fools trip over somethin’ that be behind them

Here is why Darren Young leaving the WWE on Sunday morning is the most surprising of the three; he spent Saturday night promoting WWE events with Becky Lynch, The Miz and Enzo at a LA Clippers NBA game.

From Saturday night, Young’s most recent post around 11:00 PM PST.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

If Young had any idea he was going to no longer with the WWE on Sunday morning, he sure didn’t provide any clues on Saturday night.

Of the three wrestlers no longer on the WWE roster page, who is the most surprising departure? Emma? Summer Rae? Darren Young?

Summer Rae Released from WWE Contract

WWE just announced that Summer Rae has been released from her contract.

The company put out a statement saying they’ve come to terms on her release and wish Summer “the best” in all her future endeavors.”

The 33-year-old made her debut in 2013 as Fandango‘s dance partner. After splitting with the wrestler, she eventually landed a role in the Marine 4 in 2015.

That same year she got involved with Rusev on TV and formed an on-screen relationship. When Lana and Rusev’s real-life engagement was announced by TMZ though, the storyline fell apart.

She wasn’t used much afterward and eventually got injured in 2016.

No word on the reason for her release at this point.

Darren Young Released From WWE Contract

WWE just announced that Darren Young has been released from his contract.

The company released a statement saying they’ve come to terms on his release and wish him “the best” in all his future endeavors.”

Young made his WWE debut in 2010 during the first season of NXT, with CM Punk as his mentor, and went on to be part of the Nexus stable.

After splitting from the group, Darren and Titus O’Neil formed the Primetime Players. The tag team were on-again, off-again for the next few years.

When that ran its course, Young was paired with Bob Backlund and the duo attempted to “Make Darren Young Great Again.” The 33-year-old wrestler got injured in January though and things were halted. He was cleared for action in August, but hasn’t been used on TV since.

Emma released by WWE

WWE.com announced today that they have come to terms on the release of Emma.

This is a bit surprising since Emma had recently received more television time with her “It’s all about me” gimmick focusing on her Twitter personality. Just last week she was picked to be Asuka’s first match on the WWE main roster.

It was a bit of a rocky road for the Aussie after she became a fan favorite in NXT. This isn’t her first release, as she was also let go for less than a day years back after a shoplifting incident.

After a failed initial run on the main roster as the bubbly, clumsy Emma, she went back to NXT and reinvented herself as a villain. Her second main roster run was marred by injuries and a failed repackaging as Emmalina, where rumors were management felt she wasn’t committed to the role.

The wording “come to terms” hints that this could have been a mutual thing, but we’ll have to wait to see if we ever learn the actual reason surrounding this.

Main Event debut for top WWE Superstar 

In case you missed this weeks episode of WWE Main Event, Matt Hardy made his debut on the show in a match against Curt Hawkins.

The popular superstar has struggled to find a place on the roster following Jeff Hardy’s injury and is now appearing on Main Event, but is still getting strong crowd reactions.

His victory over Hawkins extended Curt’s losing streak, a storyline that WWE is now getting behind, to 120 defeats in a row.

Emma Has Been Released From WWE

WWE just announced that Emma has been released from her contract.

The company put out a statement saying, “WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Emma. WWE wishes Emma the best in all of her future endeavors.”

The 28-year-old, whose real name is Tenille Dashwood, had a rough stint in WWE. After a successful run in NXT, she was brought to the main roster and paired with Santino Marella. A year later she was sent back to NXT and debuted her Evil version of the character.

Emma returned to the main roster in 2016 but failed to get much of a push. She was supposed to debut a new character earlier this year named Emmalina, but plans were scrapped.

She last wrestled Asuka on Monday Night Raw this week and lost.

It’s unclear what led to her release.

WrestleMania 34
Whilst it is very much still a rumor at this point and should be taken as speculation, it appears that the location of WWE WrestleMania 35 has been narrowed down to three cities.

According to Twitter user @TicketDrew & DeArron Easley, who have both broken WWE news stories in the past, Detroit is currently the front-runner to be the location of 2019’s show.

They also reported that the announcement of the location is set for some time in December and that both New York and Philadelphia are in the running.

Weekly Wrestling Viewing Guide: Oct 29 – Nov. 4, 2017

There’s a ton of wrestling content nowadays and unless you’re a hardcore pro-graps fan, you have to decide what to watch when and what to consider leaving out. That’s where we come in to help.

Every week, we are going to run down the big in-ring happenings for the easily accessible US wrestling. This won’t cover your indie needs, but ReverendKain always has you covered in his weekly Sermon on the Mat for that.

Bear in mind, matches could be added after this posts that would definitely change how worth a show is to watch.

Monday

Monday Night Raw (USA Network)

Last week’s Raw ended with a bang when SmackDown Live invaded and laid waste to the red brand. On Tuesday following, Raw opted not to retaliate just yet. Raw putting together a team for Survivor Series is likely going to be a major focus of this show.

Also, Braun Strowman may or may not be dead. But even if he is, he’ll be back soon for revenge against Miz, the Bar, and Kane for murder by garbage truck at TLC. Will the fact these men turned on him lead to him not willing to help Raw in their battle with SmackDown?

Verdict: Last week’s attack sparked a story for Survivor Series that has potential to be really big. It’s worth keeping an eye on.

Tuesday

SmackDown Live (USA Network)

The Survivor Series story will obviously continue here. A Raw attack will always be looming but my bet is a week from this episode.

There are other happenings on the blue brand. Shinsuke Nakamura will face Kevin Owens for the right to join the Survivors Series team. Last week, Randy Orton defeated Sami Zayn to win that right himself. It possible Kevin will be on the outside looking in as well.

Sami Zayn is continuing to be fantastic as a heel, by the way.

Verdict: SmackDown has been pretty consistent lately.

205 Live (WWE Network)

The cruisers continue to do their thing with Enzo as their champ.

Verdict: If you like the cruisers or certified g’s, check it out.

Wednesday

NXT (WWE Network)

NXT continues to build their way to TakeOver: War Game.

This week Drew McIntyre and Andrade “Cien” Almas will sign the contract for their NXT title match at TakeOver. Also, the Authors of Pain will exercise their rematch clause to challenge SAnitY for the tag team titles.

There are three episodes left headed into TakeOver and there’s plenty to be set up with the story surrounding the Undisputed Era, excuse me ERA, as well.

Verdict: NXT has been consistently enjoyable. It’s worth checking out.

Thursday

Impact Wrestling (Pop TV)

While this is the go home show for Bound for Glory, Impact has not been good lately. Wait for Bound for Glory and that fallout. You can probalby skip tonight.

Verdict: I wouldn’t recommend it.

Sunday

NJPW Power Struggle (NJPW World)

According to my man ReverendKain, this is the last big singles show prior to Wrestle Kingdom. And it looks like a good one.

The card is here. There’s an Intercontinental title match between Tanahashi and Kota Ibushi. Plus Will Ospreay will defend his Junior Heavyweight title against the Villain Marty Scrull.

Verdict: It looks like a pretty fun show.


If I could only watch one thing this week, it’d be:

SmackDown

SmackDown Live has been improving as of late. Heel Sami Zayn has been fantastic. We’re getting Fashion Files on the reg more. Daniel Bryan and Shane are at odds a bit over the siege of Monday Night Raw.

I’m very interested in how this big brand war plays out. While it will happen on both shows, I’d take the two hour SmackDown over the three hour Raw.


There’s a ton of other wrestling out there and we can’t cover it all on here. So if there’s something you’re particularly excited for this week, let your fellow wrestling fans know in the comments.

See ya next week!

Rumor Look Back: April 22 – 28, 2017

Welcome to the weekly Rumor Look Back, where we look at the rumors from six months ago and see which played out as originally predicted. First let’s check off a few old rumors.

July 27, 2016

  • Sasha Banks vs. Bayley is a future feud WWE is already laying the groundwork for and it could be the planned match for WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, considering the location and all the history between the two.
  • It did not happen at Mania last year. It’ll happen eventually for sure, but not as quickly as this rumor speculated. (0/1)

December 9, 2016

  • High on WWE’s list of potential talent acquisitions as the company’s in “signing mode”? Ring of Honor’s Adam Cole, whose contract is up in April.
  • He’s in NXT as it’s top villain currently alongside Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish, collectively known as… sigh… the Undisputed Era… ERA. (1/1)

April 13, 2017

  • Kurt Angle is saying he expects to take a physical for WWE by the end of this year, so don’t expect him in the ring for the company until 2018.
  • It happened last week at TLC. Though my bet if Roman didn’t get sick, it wouldn’t have been this year. (0/1)

Now onto this week:

April 22, 2017

  • It does look like WWE has quietly made Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt’s House of Horrors match at Payback a non-title match.
  • That’s true. That allowed Orton to take the L. (1/1)
  • According to SportsKeeda, WWE wants to bring Steve Austin’s Stone Cold Podcast back to the Network – and they want his first guest to be Undertaker.
  • That has not happened. (0/1)
  • TNA is expected to announce Summer tour dates next week – their first house shows since 2014.
  • I went back and looked at google search results regarding “TNA tour” for this week and nothing was announced. (0/1)
  • Allie, Braxton Sutter and Christina Von Eerie all recently signed new Impact Wrestling deals, per PWInsider.
  • I can’t speak to who has what deals, but Christina Von Eerie was only there to lose her GFW Women’s title and then lose the rematch.

April 24, 2017

  • Roman Reigns is expected to return to Monday Night Raw this week.
  • According to the best live blog ever, he did not. Looks like they held him out their PPV match to sell the ambulance flipping beating from Braun. (0/1)
  • It’s still expected that Eva Marie will leave WWE when her contract is up. PW Insider notes the reason nothing has been done or said so far is because of her role on Total Divas.
  • She is finished with the company. (1/1)
  • The Bollywood Boyz will apparently work on SmackDown Live alongside Jinder Mahal as “The Singh Brothers.”
  • That is true. (1/1)

April 25, 2017

  • Baron Corbin is the early favorite to win the Money in the Bank briefcase in June.
  • He won it. He bumbled the cash in though. (1/1)
  • Former TNA tag champ Crazzy Steve said farewell to Impact last Friday, and according to Wrestling Observer, is headed to WWE.
  • He’s not in WWE. (0/1)
  • Speaking of Impact, Jack Swagger hinted in an interview with WrestleZone he might head there to reunite with Dutch “Zeb Colter” Mantell when his 90 day non-compete with WWE expires.
  • We’ll see if he shows up at Bound for Glory, but he’s not there now. It would be a signing, but not really an exciting one.
  • There may be heat on Rusev for cutting his hair without getting permission from WWE, says Sportskeeda.
  • Tough to tell because he’s never booked really strong anyway.
  • Ember Moon’s injury from last week’s NXT tapings was a work; Squared Circle Sirens says she is fine.
  • It was not. She missed the upcoming TakeOver. (0/1)

April 26, 2017

  • Apparently the Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt House of Horrors match at Payback may be partially taped, with the end of the match happening in the arena but the beginning pre-taped somewhere else.
  • That’s how it went down. Orton arrived at the house in his limo wearing jeans and elbow pads but it ended live in the arena. (1/1)
  • Roman Reigns was at Raw this week but WWE chose not to use him for television, instead holding off on his return until Payback.
  • That’s how it happened.
  • WWE is apparently interested in Crazzy Steve, Gunner, Lio Rush, Donovan Dijak, and Kyle O’Reilly, all of which will likely end up with the company with the next few months.
  • Poor Steve is the only one of this list not in WWE now. (Gunner is in NXT working some house shows and the Dijak signing was recently announced. The others have made their way to TV.) (4/5)
  • PW Insider is reporting on a backstage “incident” involving Karen and Jeff Jarrett and Bob Ryder that took place a few days ago at the Impact tapings. Apparently it was bad but it looks like all sides are still working together for now.
  • They didn’t work together much longer as Impact has parted ways with Jeff Jarrett. Recent reports is that he checked himself into a rehab facility.

April 27, 2017

  • There’s whispers WWE has reached an agreement to buy the “Broken” gimmick from TNA, which could explain Matt Hardy’s increased use of catchphrases and mannerisms on TV.
  • Yeah, this is not accurate. (0/1)
  • It’s possible no titles will change hands this Sunday at Payback.
  • Chris Jericho defeated Kevin Owens to win the US championship. Kevin won it back two days later. Alexa Bliss won the Raw Women’s championship from Bayley as well. (0/1)
  • The only championship match outcome reportedly still undecided is Bayley & Alexa Bliss’.
  • That was one of the two with a change.
  • Eddie Edwards suffered a knee injury at last weekend’s Impact tapings. While it will require surgery, he’s not expected to miss too much time.
  • Looking at Cagematch, he didn’t wrestle a bunch on May, but he didn’t lose a bunch of time. (1/1)

April 28, 2017

  • According to the Observer, there’s at least a possibility that Mauro Ranallo returns to WWE, despite everything that has happened.
  • He did. I was surprised he did. But he’s the Voice of NXT currently. It fits him. (1/1)
  • WWE is now trying to turn Charlotte babyface to become the lead on SmackDown Live.
  • She is a babyface. Though she hasn’t been positioned at top of the SmackDown’s women’s division. (1/1)
  • Chris Jericho is expected to take a hiatus from WWE after next Monday night’s episode of Raw.
  • Technically it was after the next Tuesday. But the hiatus happened. (1/1)
  • There’s speculation that the Miz vs. Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor programs could change to Ambrose vs. Wyatt and Miz vs. Balor.
  • That didn’t happen. (0/1)
  • According to Wrestling Inc, Cody Rhodes will be signing with Ring of Honor.
  • He did. (1/1)

This week: 14/23 – 61%

Overall: 1,813/3,318 – 54.6%

Have a great week, everyone!

Travis Banks on 2017 Being His Busiest Year, Wrestling For WWE, Competing At BOLA, and His Future Goals

Donald Trump, fake news, and Travis Banks, on paper, have nothing in common, but all three have been dominating the headlines so far in 2017, this year really has been the year of the Kiwi Buzzsaw. Matthew Wilkinson recently sat down with Banks to discuss his incredible rise to being one of independent wrestling’s biggest names.

“This has definitely been my busiest year, I think any prior to this pales in comparison to anything I’ve done. I thought 2016 was quite busy like things started picking up from the end of 2016 and then I couldn’t have even dreamed of what 2017 would’ve been like,” Banks explained.

Busy might be an understatement for Banks who has gone from being one of the hardest working talents on the booming British wrestling scene to one of the marquee names on the posters for the likes of PROGRESS and What Culture Pro Wrestling.

Luckily for Banks, being busy is exactly what he wants right now, as he states: “I think it’s good because sometimes if I feel like I’ve had a poor match or something like that it just doesn’t matter, I just carry on to the next one; I don’t need to worry about it. I think that this is what I’ve always dreamed of so it’s exactly what I wanted so I can’t complain about anything that’s happened.”

All the extra matches and travel certainly take a toll on a wrestler’s body, but the Prestige member claims that his body is, “surprisingly, not too bad, I just have a lot more trips to the sports therapists.”
However, Banks does believe that the physical beating a wrestler withstands is something that isn’t given enough credit. “Sometimes I nurse little niggly injuries and when you just keep wrestling all the time over these injuries it can get a little bit worse, but I seem to come through on the other side okay. That’s definitely part of the job that is never really glorified, it’s quite tough sometimes,” he said.

The Kiwi Buzzsaw had a breakout moment earlier in the year when he won the PROGRESS Strong Style tournament, something that catapulted him to the forefront of wrestling fans minds.
The tournament was a big deal for Banks who claimed: “That was huge, I was super nervous going into that weekend. That was one of the times when there was a lot of pressure on me and I put a lot on myself too. So, to come away that weekend with all the praise and accolades was well worth the stress I put on myself.”

Winning the tournament earned him a shot at Pete Dunne’s Progress Championship at the Chase The Sun event and yet again Banks stepped up, putting on a blockbuster main event with the Bruiserweight; capturing the title in the process.
For most people, those two achievements alone would be enough but Banks has done so much more already in 2017. He was given the chance to showcase his strong style to the WWE Universe over WrestleMania weekend when he worked at the Axxess event, giving him, a teaser of what life could be should he eventually join the company he has had a try-out for.

“I was doing the Wrestlecon weekend, I wrestled for PROGRESS and I wrestled for Evolve and I had a massive stand out match with Sami Callahan and with TK Cooper as well. So, I was already on a high from that so then to wrestle that weekend and get to wrestle for WWE as well, was like… I had to take a moment when I was in my hotel room and think ‘I just wrestled for WWE’ and that’s what I’ve been wanting to do my whole career.

“The matches weren’t particularly long and I don’t think anyone particularly remembers those matches but to actually get to wrestle for WWE and hang out backstage and talk to everybody and show my face and make connections was great.

“It’s definitely like dangling the carrot and I was like, ‘Oh yeah, I do actually kind of want to be here,’” Banks stated.

However, the highlight of his year (so far) came when he got the news he would be competing in this year’s Battle of Los Angeles. Banks reached the semi-finals of the tournament that he has always wanted to compete in, a goal that he set months before.
“It’s actually quite funny, BOLA has always been a goal of mine in the back of my head, but three or four months before I thought, ‘You know what I’m going to really push for this’. I put it on my goals list three months out before I got the call.

“Then out of the blue they called me up and I was like whoa, I didn’t really expect to get it. But it was nuts, my social media pretty much just shat itself so I had to put my phone in a drawer while it was buzzing but it was good. It’s a good feeling, it’s pretty exciting to see so many people excited about seeing me being in such a prestigious tournament,” Banks explained.

To get in the position that Banks finds himself in has taken a lot of hard work and dedication, but he attributes his big break to several elements.

Firstly, “There’s a few matches that started it, there was me versus Tyler (Bate) at Attack. I think that’s the first time a crowd over here had seen the strong style side of me, they were kind of just taken aback, I don’t think they expected it from me.

“And then from there, following on from that match was me versus Zack Sabre Junior at Fight Club, it was the opening match and we went 37 minutes or something like that and after, everyone was talking about it. Then anytime me and Sabre have tangled since they’ve always been on board,” the Kiwi Buzzsaw said.

Another factor has been his involvement with WCPW, which has put Banks on a platform to a more global audience, as he explained: “I was just in New York and Boston for the PROGRESS shows and a lot of people who spoke to me there, had actually seen me wrestle through WhatCulture.

“They had seen my work and they were all really big fans of WhatCulture, so it’s definitely helped and got my name out there and got me exposure that I didn’t really think it may do. It does have its reach and they always set me great matches and I’m happy to work for them.”

Whilst Banks may well be on WWE’s radar, right now he isn’t fixated on a move to the McMahon house, and is happy to be patient as he enjoys working the independent scene, not just in England but across the globe.

However, the Kiwi Buzzsaw and new PROGRESS Champion does have a few set goals in mind as he continues to take his career to the next level.

“I would like to work for New Japan and I just want to wrestle in some more countries that I’ve never wrestled in, I’ve wrestled in eleven countries so anywhere else that wants to have me I’ll probably work for,” he said.

Longtime Friends Hulk Hogan & Brutus Beefcake Now Feuding in Real Life


An interesting situation has developed on Twitter over the past few days involving wrestling legends and longtime friends Terry Bollea (Hulk Hogan) and Ed Leslie (Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake).

Becky Lynch Slapped the Clippers Mascot For Getting Handsy During WWE Night (VIDEO)

No means no, even if you’re a cute NBA mascot … a point Becky Lynch drove home this weekend during WWE night at the Staples Center.

Becky was in attendance at the Clippers game on Saturday with Enzo Amore, The Miz and Darren Young to hype an upcoming live event in Los Angeles — but things got physical during the kiss cam segment (and not in a good way).

The Clippers mascot Chuck made repeated attempts to snag a kiss from the SmackDown Superstar and was shot down every time. When he tried to force his way in, the bird learned a quick lesson.

Watch the video below.

  • Yep, the best friends ruled the roost for a second straight week. And KO didn’t have to fight a McMahon on the roof of anything to pull it off this time!
  • Just give The Boss an angle, even one which leads to a fine for Foxy and a pre-show match, and watch the votes roll in.
  • The Crazy One’s presence in the Top Ten wasn’t any more surprising than that of The Devil’s Favorite Mayoral Candidate, who tussled with The Shield – 23 of whom placed (the grudge against Traitorface lingers, apparently).
  • It may or may not be over, but LU made a splash for the first time in a while with its season three finale as both the new champ and the departing first one both earned nods.
  • Hey Ember! How ya been?

The S3: 2017 – 18, Week 29

1. Sami Zayn
2. Kevin Owens
3. Sasha Banks
4. Pentagon Dark
5. Kane

Where Kevin and Dean keep inching up, and Miz is now here (and should have been since two weeks ago after winning week 27, but your friendly neighborhood counter and compiler screwed up updating the post).

The S3 Performer of the Year – through the Week Ending Oct. 21

1. Roman Reigns – 130.5
2. Braun Strowman – 86.5
3. Sasha Banks – 82.5

WWE Survivor Series 2017 match card, rumors

The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the Survivor Series event set to take place on Sun., Nov. 19, 2016, at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Thanks to the brand split, this show will feature match-ups exclusively pitting Monday Night Raw wrestlers against SmackDown Live wrestlers.

We’re three weeks from showtime and the card is basically already complete:

  • Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal

This originated with Mahal making a challenge but before Lesnar could even respond, it was booked as part of a champion vs. champion series. Brock went for it anyway.

  • Alexa Bliss vs. Natalya

The Raw women’s champion ran from confrontation when the SmackDown women’s champion showed up during the invasion this past week.

  • The Miz vs. Baron Corbin

The United States Champion, Corbin, was front and center in the invasion but the Intercontinental Champion, Miz, was nowhere to be found.

  • Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins vs. The Usos

The Raw tag team and SmackDown tag team champions were building this match on house shows a while back, so this works out perfectly.

  • Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown (Men’s elimination match)

Team Raw: TBA
Team SmackDown: Randy Orton & TBA

  • Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown (Women’s elimination match)

Team Raw: Alicia Fox & Sasha Banks & Bayley
Team SmackDown: Becky Lynch & Carmella & Charlotte & Naomi & Tamina

That’s the card so far, but expect a cruiserweight match or two to be announced.

Jim Ross Working on Potential New Project w/ Jerry Lawler, Will He Write a Second Autobiography?

http://ift.tt/2zdNHtW

ProWrestling.com recently spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross about his brand new autobiography Slobberknocker: My Life In Wrestling. You can check out the full interview in the video below, or read written highlights by clicking here.

During the interview, JR confirmed for the first time that he is in talks with long-time broadcast partner Jerry “The King” Lawler about a tour featuring both members of the iconic Monday Night Raw announce team. Ross has been doing his own “Ringside” tours for many years traveling all over the United States and even internationally, but this would be the first time The King would join him in any official capacity.

“The King and I are willing and happy and excited about the opportunity to work together in an adlib environment. Should be hilarious stuff, informative, and fun. It’s just a matter of getting the tour booked, and all that good stuff. Hopefully it will happen, and it should be fun, without a doubt.”

When we asked about the possibility of a second autobiography and sequel to Slobberknocker, JR was all but certain the project will eventually happen, noting that they already have material ready to go.

“I’m sure that we will, or [at least] I feel like we will. We’ve already got most of the stuff organized to write. I would look forward to reading** a second, because now I’ve got one under my belt and I kind of know what I’m doing. I can emotional prepare myself for what I’m about to do – it won’t come as a surprise anymore.”

**JR was referring to the unexpected difficulty in reading lines for the audiobook version of Slobberknocker, which he did himself.

Kurt Angle Continues to Hype In-Ring Return w/ Brand New Ring Gear & “Comeback” Merch

Photo Credit: YouTube.com

It looks like Kurt Angle’s surprise return to the ring at WWE TLC earlier this month was not a one-off occasion. The Olympic gold medalist continues to hype his “comeback” and even posted a photo on Instagram showing off new gear he’s having custom made. Check it out below!

WWE Shop has also released new “Don’t Call it a Comeback” themed merch for Angle, which just hit their website this week. As we recently reported, the Raw general manager has been confirmed for the upcoming WWE UK and European tour this November, although he isn’t expected to compete inside the ring.

It’s been discussed that Kurt may be added to the Survivor Series card however, leading speculation being that he and Shane McMahon may captain the men’s 5-on-5 elimination match at the pay-per-view. At the very least we know from WWE TLC that he is cleared by company doctors to compete, and given that he’s having brand new ring gear created you can bet it’s only a matter of time before we see the red, white and blue singlet in action.

Dana Warrior comments on story criticizing WWE using Ultimate Warrior in cancer awareness campaign

Vice Sports has a fantastic piece up today breaking down the various issues with WWE using the Ultimate Warrior for a cancer awareness campaign despite the fact that he made so many controversial statements throughout his life, many of them publicized. That includes racism, bigotry, homophobia, and once saying Bobby Heenan’s throat cancer was karma and calling him a two-faced bag of shit.

Considering all this, it was always strange WWE immediately took to using Warrior to push positive messages of inspiration and courage in the face of adversity, like naming an award after him and now using his widow, Dana, as the face of the “Unleash Your Warrior,” campaign as part of its partnership with Susan G. Komen to combat breast cancer.

She gave a statement to Vice attempting to explain how he changed:

“I will not be disloyal to my husband’s memory or speak ill of a man who is not here to defend himself. I can, however, tell you his heart was changed by conversations with his two daughters. The true testament of the man behind the character is his ability to evolve. My husband did just that.”

WWE is none too happy anyone would be approaching what they’re doing with a negative slant, as they released a statement to Vice:

“WWE’s ‘Unleash Your Warrior’ breast cancer awareness campaign and annual ‘Warrior Award’ recognize individuals that exhibit the strength and courage of WWE’s legendary character The Ultimate Warrior. Any attempt to distract from the mission of these initiatives and take the spotlight away from the honorees is unfortunately misguided.”

It’s worth noting there is a distinction to be made between the characters played on television and the man himself but WWE isn’t doing much to make that distinction clear and Warrior himself legally changed his name to just that. Truth it truth and Vice really hits the mark with its story.

Jack Swagger may be interested in an MMA fight

From his interview with FloSlam.tv:

“I mean if you look at my background and how popular combat sports are now, then it is one hell of an opportunity but also one hell of a risk which could be an even greater reward. I have been training for months now getting into shape but it’s been ten years since I competed at amateur wrestling levels. There are a lot of things to consider. I like what Bellator are doing right now and the roster is filling up and its not just top heavy, the guys in the middle of the rankings are very competitive and dangerous. My good friend Josh Rafferty has done MMA and pro-wrestling so we are always talking about it.”

Since leaving WWE, Swagger hasn’t had as high a profile as, say, Cody Rhodes, but he’s still getting his name out there however he can. That could include a future in MMA. Considering his size and amateur wrestling background, perhaps he can do just well enough with the right matchmaking to earn a few bucks at it.

That said, he’s already 35-years-old and has never competed professionally. Would it be another CM Punk situation?

WATCH: Impact Tag Team Champions OVE Tease Sami Callihan Appearance at Bound For Glory

Above is the latest video from Impact Wrestling, featuring the GFW Tag Team Champions Dave and Jake Crist teasing a new addition to the “family”. OVE has suffered several attacks at the hands of LAX and Konnan’s The Crash promotion in recent weeks.

In the video Dave Crist implies they will “bring a family” to fight LAX, who they will face at the upcoming Bound For Glory pay-per-view for the titles. The tattooed arm of a mystery man is then shown, which obviously belongs to former NXT Superstar and the resident mayor of independent wrestling Sami Callihan.

On the indies Sami is extremely close with the Crist brothers, known collectively as OI4K or the Killer Cult along with the “Iron Manager” JT Davidson. Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz, who are the current AAW Tag Team Champions, have also been associated with the group in various promotions. It will be interesting to see exactly who OVE brings with them to Bound For Glory next weekend, as well as the six days of television tapings that follow.

Another rumored plan for Patron is making him the guest referee for the bout, however nothing has been officially announced.

Top Indie Wrestling Name & Mae Young Classic Star Reportedly in Talks w/ Impact Wrestling

impact wrestling

According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, there have been recent negotiations between Impact Wrestling and top independent wrestling star Ricochet. At this point we don’t know how those talks went or even if he’d be legally able to appear for them at this point; all that’s being reported is that they’ve had conversations.

The issue with Ricochet is that he’s not only a big star in the juniors division with New Japan Pro Wrestling, but a vital part of Lucha Underground as the masked character Prince Puma. According to multiple sources his contract with LU expires in January and he’s been looking for a new home, as the company hasn’t held a taping since summer 2016.

Johnson is also reporting that Impact is very interested in Tessa Blanchard, who was one of the most popular names in the Mae Young Classic and is currently the champion for at least five different indie promotions including Shimmer and WrestleCircus. One source reportedly told PWInsider that she could be starting as quickly as the Impact Wrestling television tapings after Bound For Glory.

It may be worth pointing out that Ricochet and Blanchard have been in a dating relationship for quite some time.
