WWE NEWS

 

Billy Gunn has been pulled from the road due to there being heavy heat on him from management at the moment. There was an incident a couple of weeks ago where Gunn missed a flight which marked the peak of several earlier situations. Management want Gunn to get himself sorted out and as such he has been sent home.

 

Several new characters wrestled at the RAW house shows this weekend including Simon Dean, Gene Snitsky and Muhammed Hussan (who used to be OVW wrestler Mark Magnus). He was accompanied by Shawn Daivari as his manager using an Arabian gimmick.

 

WWE released the following statement earlier today:

WrestleMania 21 Tickets Sell Out In Less Than One Minute; Fastest Sales in World Wrestling Entertainment and STAPLES Center History

 

STAMFORD, Conn.--Sept. 27, 2004--

 

Fans From Around The World Will Attend World Wrestling Entertainment®'s Premier Event To See WrestleMania® Go Hollywood

 

All available seats for WrestleMania 21 were sold in less than one minute on Saturday, Sept. 25, setting records for the fastest ticket sell-out in STAPLES Center and World Wrestling Entertainment history.

 

A capacity crowd comprised of fans from more than 14 countries and 34 states is now set to attend WrestleMania 21 on Sunday, April 3, 2005. The WWE®'s premier annual event also will be seen on pay-per-view, cable, and satellite television by millions of fans from more than 90 countries.

 

The 15,000 available tickets, ranging in price from $40.00 to $750.00 (where you can sit ringside and keep your commemorative WrestleMania 21 ringside chair), were sold in less than one minute between Internet orders and the line gathered to buy tickets at the STAPLES Center box office. More than a thousand WWE fans gathered at the STAPLES Center, starting as early as Wednesday, Sept. 22, in hopes of purchasing tickets to WWE's annual extravaganza.

 

"The speed in which this event sold out further reinforces WrestleMania's position as a beloved icon in pop culture," said Kurt Schneider, WWE's Executive Vice President, Marketing. "The event is more than six months away, and still our great fans rushed to purchase tickets simply on the basis that this is WrestleMania, and that this will be a Hollywood experience like no other. After WrestleMania 21, 'Tinsel Town' may never be the same."

 

Schneider added that once staging requirements for WrestleMania 21 are completed closer to the event, additional tickets may be made available for sale.

 

"Every one of WWE's 10 previous appearances at STAPLES Center has sold out, but to sell out in less than a minute is unprecedented in the five-year history of our arena," said Brenda Tinnen, Senior Vice President Event & Guest Services, STAPLES Center. "There is no doubt that the STAPLES Center continues to lead the nation in hosting the most popular events and WrestleMania 21 is another example of that. Thanks to Vince McMahon for bringing WWE's crown jewel to Los Angeles and STAPLES Center, and we look forward to presenting this event to the millions of fans worldwide on April 3."

 

When WrestleMania 21 plays the STAPLES Center on Sunday, April 3, it will be the first time in a half-decade that the Big Event returns to Southern California, and the first time a WrestleMania has been performed at STAPLES. Monday Night RAW® on April 4, the evening after WrestleMania 21, also will be held at STAPLES Center. Tickets for RAW are still available.

A few more details were revealed about the RAW brand's "Taboo Tuesday" PPV event:

 

- Fans will be able to choose Triple H's opponent from a selection of three choices. These choices are Chris Benoit, Shawn Michaels or Edge. It is interesting to note that Edge was mentioned despite being sidelined with an injury at this point in time.

 

- Stacy Keibler will be involved in a match where fans will be able to choose what she wears. This could possibly be against Molly Holly - but take that as a rumour for the time being.

 

- There were three gimmicks announced for the Eric Bischoff vs. Eugene match. These were "Loser Wears A Dress", "Hair vs. Hair" or "Loser Has To Be A Servant For The Winner".

 

The current plan is to turn The Hurricane into a heel. The general feeling is that the character has accomplished all that it can as a face and so turning him heel may have some possibilities.

 

Pat Patterson was on the RAW brand house shows this weekend. He was mainly there to observe and offer some suggestions to both wrestlers and management in order to improve the product.

 

Big Show was welcomed back to the WWE locker room because he gets along with everyone so well. He is said not too take himself very seriously and he is an easygoing, joke cracker.

 

John Cena is now the only person "exempt" from the dress code because of the conflicts it presents between his on air character and being dressed in business attire. The Undertaker is now following the dress code also and many wrestlers are making the best of the situation.

 

The WWE Divas have a lot more leeway when it comes to the dress code because "business casual" for them gives them many more options than the men.

One of the main reasons that Mark Jindrak is still around the roster even though management has given him no push is because he is good friends with Randy Orton.

 

Most are now saying that the scuffle between Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle can be mostly attributed to Guerrero's stress levels being so high lately. Guerrero is said to be running on fumes as of late, both due to exhaustion and stress. The fight between the two is said to be described as a fight between "brothers" because normally both men get along so well backstage.

 

Angle was openly apologetic after the incident occurred. Another factor leading into the incident is that both men are so intense and it takes them several minutes to cool down after their segments on television once they get backstage. Angle is unapproachable for up to 45 minutes before his segments as he gets into the mindset for his character. All is said to be good and well between the two men this week however.

 

It was surprising to some that WWE was able to maintain a 3.6 rating with the return of Everybody Loves Raymond and Monday Night Football, but traditionally the WWE's viewership stays steady in the fall, because of the greater number of people who return to watching television for the fall season balanced against those who leave to watch something other than Raw.

 

Shane McMahon was not backstage at Unforgiven, which was surprising to many, because Shane attends all PPV's and Raw events that follow them the next night. Many backstage like to keep a close eye on Shane, because it was believed for a long long time that Shane would be running the company by the ago of 40. However, more and more it looks as though his sister Stephanie and Hunter (Triple H) are looking more and more like they will be running the company in the future. As of now, Stephanie has much more power than Shane as far as things go with the WWE at this point.

 

Jamie Noble was of course fired last week by the WWE for unknown reasons because the WWE did not release any details, however the speculation is that it had to deal with problems over documents filed for medical insurance purposes that involved WWE, when it shouldn't have involved WWE. Jamie Knoble was well liked by all his peers backstage, but wasn't considered to be a large asset to the WWE, otherwise he would have probably been given another chance.

 

Jamie Noble is scheduled to make his wrestling return for October's New Japan Pro Wrestling tour.

 

While they didn't appear to like each other very much on camera, the word is that both Carmella and Christy were good friends behind the scenes for the Raw Diva Search. This leads people to believe that the Diva's were just faking tension between them and leading some to believe that the entire Diva search was scripted to a certain extent.

 

The following is posted on the Raw Diva Search webpage which would release the WWE of any charges of fraud against them:

"WWE, in its sole and exclusive discretion, reserves the right to change the rules, method and manner of fan voting and winner selection at any time, for any reason whatsoever, or for no reason at all."

While this is customary for most reality shows, because it relieves the WWE of any lawsuits that contestants may bring saying they were taken off the show for other reasons than the fan's voting. It had been known internally by some that Christy was favored to win because of the previous weeks voting and many times the girls went out there prepared to be voted out because of this knowledge. Other fans accused the WWE of fraud because it seemed as though the voting was setup to favor Carmella because it seemed as though phone lines allowed for multiple votes for her, but only single votes for the other Divas.

 

The WWE claims however that it was the heel fan vote that keep Carmella around so long and that the other Divas (outside of Christy) were so indistinguishable from one another that they split the votes up among themselves.

This will be the only statement made by WAW and the Knight family, and they ask people to respect the fact that Roy has a young son and younger brothers and sisters, and hope this subject will be given the respect it deserves. As a family the Knights are obviously devastated and only made this statement so fans may know the truth first hand, and not through the wrestling grapevine, and would hate for the younger members of the family to read twisted versions of events.

 

The World Association of Wrestling will be returning to the Community Centre in Fakenham, Norfolk, this coming Saturday, October 2nd 04.

 

Matches announced so far are;

- "The Dark Angel" Ashe v "Gentleman" Jimmy Ocean.

- Destiny v Kharisma.

- The Kraft v Bash.

 

The first matches have been announced for WAW's autumn tradition, October Outrage VI, coming to The Paddocks, Canvey Island, on Friday, October 8th:

 

- Jake "The Snake" Roberts & "The Tattooed Warrior" Steve Quintain v The U.K. Pitbulls

- "The Wonderkid" Jonny Storm v "Rowdy" Ricky Knight

- "Superstar" Mal Sanders v Steve Grey.

 

Tickets for both shows can be purchased on the door, or can be reserved by telephoning 07979302203, or e-mailing [sweetsaraya@hotmail.com]. It is highly recommended that tickets are reserved in advance, to avoid disappointment.

 

---

 

Jonny Storm will this week be appearing on The Bagpipe Report on the Wrestling Channel as the special guest. The Bagpipe Report is on Fridays at 8pm with repeats on Saturdays and Sundays. Don't miss it! ;)

 

That's everything for this week, don't forget to check out Wrestling 101 for all your UK wrestling needs. I will have an FCW show review up shortly and as ever there's Adam Sibley's weekly UK Scene round up and Saracens Tenets to keep you right up to date! Thank you for reading.

TWO Newsletter Main Event

- By Stephen Ashfield

---------------------------------------------------------------

 

Kane and Lita: A storyline too far?

 

So Lita has lost the ‘baby’ and she even managed to do that on live TV, her timing is getting better than it ever used to be in the ring! I guess we all knew this was how the storyline was going to end but did it have to be played out so graphically. You know what, I really hate it when wrestlers get ‘injured’ in the ring and we go through the whole medical emergency storyline. The paramedics rush out, JR gets all sad and we see either Lita or Shawn Michaels carried away on a stretcher with the oxygen mask on. After what happened in the ring to Owen Hart and Droz I find that really upsetting.

 

Anyway back to Kane and Lita, just where will this lead next? The first question that has to be answered is just who the hell is this Snitsky guy? He comes out of nowhere and the simple fact is he’s responsible for Lita’s miscarriage after attacking Kane in the ring with that chair. Since then he’s been saying that it’s not his fault, well it is, so what will happen next?

 

Next weeks Raw just happens to come from Madison Square Garden. It could well be a case of a full circle for Kane. It was there that, after losing to Triple H (join a very long queue Kane) he unmasked and revealed a look a heck of a lot more horrifying that he had the following week. Now after a rampage of terror he returns to the Garden and could well be about to turn face. What else can he do? Are we going to boo him when he seeks revenge on the man who cost him his unborn son’s life? Why else use a total nobody who can disappear for ages after without anyone really caring. Of course there could be a really sinister plot hidden away here, What if Snitsky was being paid by Matt Hardy to make sure Lita lost the baby? A sick thought but the way WWE are going these days I wouldn’t put it past them.

 

A sick idea from me to be added to a sick storyline that actually exists. Miscarriage is a horrible thing and to portray it in this fashion with a screaming Kane (I can wait for his movie believe me) and Lita staring into space distraught at the fact she used to actually wrestle one day rather than being a soap star. How do you think someone who has recently lost a baby felt watching that? Raw is becoming more of a soap opera as every week goes by, is that what the fans really want?
