WWE NEWS

 

Rumour is that Kurt Angle, Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak's new group on SmackDown! will be called 'The Honor Society'. The name was recently trademarked by WWE.

 

The fixed version of the SummerSlam DVD should hit stores in the next few weeks, if they haven’t already. There was a problem with many of the originally released DVD’s as the sound was out during the show’s main event.

 

As John Cena is currently filming a WWE produced movie called “The Marine”. Cena's appearance this Sunday’s WWE No Mercy PPV will most likely be his last for several months. He will only be making appearances between now and the end of the filming if his schedule allows it.

 

Eddie Guerrero was allegedly involved in a car accident last week. It was said to be a pretty serious crash with another car and took place during the middle part of last week. Guerrero was said to be OK after the accident and managed to work the house shows last weekend. A number of people backstage feel that Guerrero should be given some time off to deal with his recent injury issues.

 

The official Taboo Tuesday site has been launched and can be viewed at tabootuesday.wwe.com. Right now not much is featured other than highlights from the recent press conference.

 

An interview with Gene Snitsky has been put up at WWE.com. The interview follows the on-air storyline, but does not include any real information about Snitsky. WWE.com does not seem to have "insider" articles on the site anymore, only things that are involved in their storylines.

 

Lance Storm has updated his online commentary. In his latest entry, Storm discusses going to see a local Stampede Wrestling show this previous week in Calgary. He shares both his negative and positive thoughts.

 

WWE Weekend schedule:

 

*RAW Brand:

- Tonight - Portland, ME

- Saturday - Burlington, VT [Main Event: Randy Orton, Chris Benoit, & Eugene vs. Triple H, Batista, & Ric Flair]

- Sunday - Binghamton, NY [Main Event: Randy Orton, Chris Benoit, & Eugene vs. Triple H, Batista, & Ric Flair]

- Monday - New York City, NY [RAW]

 

*SmackDown! Brand:

- Sunday - East Rutherford, NJ [No Mercy]

- Tuesday - Boston, MA [sD!]

 

Both Mick Foley and Christopher Nowinski appeared on MSNBC's post-debate edition of After Hours last night. They primarily discussed voter registration drives.

 

At this point, Cablevision and Adelphia Cable have no intentions of carrying WWE 24/7. They may consider adding it in the future but have failed to reach a deal with WWE.

 

SmackDown! did a 3.4 overnight rating last week.

TNA NEWS

 

It seems that Jeff Hardy has done it again, this time by not showing up for last weeks Impact Tapings in Orlando Florida at Universal Studios. He was scheduled to face a returning David Young who hasnt been on TNA television since the weekly pay per views ended. The match had to be completely changed and TNA management are seemingly unhappy with Jeff Hardy again. It was well reported some time ago that Jeff was late for the TNA bus and Monty Brown spoke out against Jeff. TNA then put Kazarian in charge of looking after Hardy. With him now creating new problems rumours are running rampant that TNA may well dispose of Hardy after Victory Road but take that at face value. Hardy is of course still perhaps TNA's biggest name commercially so if he's still around in a couple months dont be shocked.

 

TNAwrestling.com have recently launched several new features on their website which includes a new trivia game. Fans can play this of course at TNA's homepage but you must register to play it. Its a great game that I’ve played first hand. However due to their slow server TNA have now limited play to one game every few hours to avoid server crashing.

 

Nashville, TN (October 4, 2004) - TNA Entertainment, LLC. announced today that Saturday, November 6 & Sunday, November 7, will be Total Nonstop Action Wrestling “Victory Road” weekend. Fans will have an opportunity on Saturday to meet their favorite TNA Wrestling Superstars with the Total Nonstop InterAction fan festival. Then, on Sunday November 7, at 8PM, TNA Wrestling’s first ever monthly pay-per-view, “Victory Road”, will air live from Soundstage 21 in Universal Studios at Universal Orlando Resort.

 

Total Nonstop InterAction will be held in the Doubletree Hotel at the entrance to Universal Orlando. TNA Superstars that will be in attendance are Jeff Jarrett, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, Jimmy Hart, Rowdy Roddy Piper, AJ Styles, Monty Brown and many more to be announced. Advance tickets are $49 and include 2 items autographed by each talent, admission for two Q & A Sessions, VIP Seating at “Victory Road”, Commemorative “Victory Road” poster, and access to the post party with TNA Wrestlers. Tickets are $49 and available starting this Saturday, October 9th at 10AM through tnawrestling.com or can be purchased at the door for $59.

UK News - by Adam Sibley

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

 

Hey Guys Goldy is away touring the UK at the moment so you got to put up with me this week. Here is just a quick round up of events, cards and results happening in the UK.

 

UKPW

 

UKPW at Nye Bevan Hall - October 7th 2004 in Hackney, London

Marcus 'The Toad' Hiscott vs Chris Wyld

 

Chris Wyld was disqualified for hitting his opponent with a low blow. Upon realising that he had been disqualified, Wyld grabbed a chair from ringside with the intention of causing serious damage to 'The Toad'. Hiscott was able to avoid being struck with the chair and knocked Wyld from the ring. Wyld was persistent and again grabbed the chair. At this point, Marcus' tag team partner, Anton Green, came out and convinced Hiscott to leave the ringside area as Wyld seethed at the match result.

 

Andy Simmonz pinned 'Wrestling's Cool Kid' Stevie James

 

With Ian Logan at ringside, Andy Simmonz had a distinct advantage in this match which proved to be an uphill challenge for Stevie James. At one point, James appeared primed to finish Simmonz off with a superkick. However, Logan entered the ring and tried to t! alk Stevie out of hitting the move. Logan was successful in preventing James from striking Simmonz as Stevie turned his attentions to Logan and blasted him with the superkick. This distraction allowed Simmonz to hoist James into a powerslam position and drive him into the canvas for a pinfall victory.

 

Eamon O'Neil vs 'The Idol' Ian Logan

 

This back and forth contest saw Simmonz return to ringside in the corner of his Towel Boys partner, Ian Logan. As Logan attempted to execute a chokeslam variation on Eamon O'Neil, he was rolled up for the pinfall. This decision was popular with the crowd but not with Simmonz who would make a challenge to O'Neil later in the night.

 

Ethan 'The Heat' Hayze vs 'The Atomic Ant' Anton Green

 

After several minutes of hard fought action, The Towel Boys made their way to ringside, causing a distraction for both Ethan Hayze and Anton Green. The distraction would ultimately turn physical when Simmonz & Loga! n climbed onto the ring apron and were struck by Green and Hayze. Following a double clothesline, The Towel Boys jumped into the ring and pummelled both men. At this point, the match had already been thrown out as a no-contest.

 

Impromptu challenge match

 

Eamon O'Neil vs Andy Simmonz

 

Ian Logan attacked Eamon O'Neil which prompted the referee to call for a disqualification. As The Towel Boys continued to attack O'Neil, The Green Machine, Ethan Hayze & Stevie James ran to the ring to halt the assault. Eamon then announced that he would find a partner in order to get revenge on Simmonz & Logan, making the Main Event a 4 Way tag match. Chris Wyld would then come out to ringside and offer to team with O'Neil as a means to get back in the ring with Marcus Hiscott.

 

Main Event: 4 Way tag team match

 

Hayze & James vs The Towel Boys vs The Green Machine vs Wyld & O'Neil

 

The team of Chris Wyld and Eamon O'Neil proved to be a very tenuous one. After O'Neil hit slan abhaile on Anton Green, Wyld begged for the tag so that he could score the win. O'Neil refused and attempted a cover. Wyld broke up the pin and again requested a tag. Angered at Wyld's actions, O'Neil made the tag by slapping his partner and hurling him into the ring before walking backstage. A dazed Chris Wyld would ultimately fall victim to a superkick from Stevie James who made the pin and scored victory for his team. After the match, The Green Machine shook hands with the victorious team of Ethan Hayze & Stevie James.

IWF

 

IWF in Gateshead, 2nd Oct 2004

 

4th Anniversary Show

 

After celebrating four years of the Independent Wrestling Federation, Bobby Jackson was officially stripped of the IWF Tag Team Tiles due to injury suffered by his partner, Hot Ed. The main event was named as The Avery Brothers v Assassin & Jimmy Blade.

 

IWF JUNIOR ACADEMY CHAMPIONSHIP

 

RD Wood v Max Heat

 

These two, arguably the top two competitors in the IWF Junior Academy met one-on-one for the first time in a match that saw Heat crowned the new champion. The challenger, realising he could not compete with Wood on the mat, spent much of the match in the air. After surviving the Shockwave (Suplex/Rock Bottom) from Wood, Heat became the new IWF Junior Academy Champion following a Liger Bomb.

 

Winner – Max Heat

 

Liam ‘The Player’ Atkinson v ‘Deckham Radgy’ Paul Dalby

 

Junior Academy member Dalby was offered the chance to step up to the next level by tangling with submission expert Liam Atkinson. Despite entering an impressive performance, the Deckham Radgy came up just short, falling victim to the Player’s Bridging German Suplex. Although he lost, Dalby showed great promise for the future, almost taking victory with his Radgy Star Press (Standing Shooting Star).

 

Winner – Liam ‘The Player’ Atkinson

 

Lee Kyle called Jed Masters to the ring and told the ‘Bad Boy’ that he was barely worth the attention of the leader of the ‘Lee Kyle Experience’. He then introduced Masters opponent…Kamala’s #1 Fan.

 

‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters v Kamala’s #1 Fan

 

The somewhat strange Kamala’s #1 Fan offered little competition for Masters, tapping out to the Masterpiece in under a minute.

 

Winner – ‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters

 

Kyle then introduced another opponent for Masters, in the shape of Lee Kyle Experience member Chris Prime.

 

‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters v ‘All The Time’ Chris Prime

 

Gifted flyer Prime fought Masters to a close run contest, bamboozling the popular powerhouse with a variety of aerial techniques. Eventually, however, Prime became frustrated when Masters kicked out after the ‘Prime Time’ Shooting Star Press, allowing the Bad Boy to take advantage and hit his patented Masterclass for the three count.

 

Winner – ‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters

 

His plan seemingly rumbled, Kyle came up with a plan B, introducing another opponent for Masters, this time Harry Pain.

 

‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters v Harry Pain

 

Exhausted by this point, Masters managed to blister the chest of Pain with some stinging chops but was unable to mount much other offence. Harry Pain unleashed a variety of devastating moves but the Bad Boy hung in, managing to roll a shoulder on each occasion to avoid defeat. Eventually, Pain earned a third public warning, and despite making Masters tap to the Hall of Pain Cloverleaf, was disqualified.

 

Winner – ‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters

 

Seeing Masters barely able to move, Kyle took the opportunity to announce himself as his fourth opponent of the night.

 

‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters v Lee Kyle

 

With his opponent virtually immobile, Kyle slapped on his Mamba Choke for a barely deserved choke-out victory.

 

Winner – Lee Kyle

 

Masters eventually made his way to his feet and challenged Kyle to a bout on November 27th, when the IWF return to Gateshead. Kyle accepted, on condition that Masters, who had taken an incredible beating, passed a drug test.

 

Emma ‘Phoenix’ Anderson v Angel & Courtney Synn

 

Phoenix, who’s scheduled partner had been ‘mysteriously delayed’ agreed to take on Synn and Angel in a handicap match. Although she managed to cope quite comfortably with her opponents on a one-on-one basis, the IWF Women’s Champion fell victim to the numbers game when, after hitting her ‘Phoenix from the Flames’ Death Valley Driver on Synn, she was rolled-up and pinned by Angel

 

Winners – Angel & Courtney Synn

 

Jed Masters returned to the ring with his urine sample, and to much laughter threw it in the face of Lee Kyle. A shocked Kyle then accepted the match on 27th November.

 

‘Unbreakable’ Bobby Jackson came to the ring for his scheduled Ring of Faith title match with Weapon X. However the champion informed him that he would not be getting a title shot tonight, and would never get one unless he could defeat Nick Damocles.

 

‘Unbreakable’ Bobby Jackson v Nick Damocles

 

The debuting Damocles dominated the former Tag Team champion with variety of hard-hitting power moves before working over the left leg in an attempt to prevent Jackson from hitting his 450 splash. Eventually though, the mysterious newcomer realised why they call Jackson unbreakable, when Jackson, with his leg clearly bothering him, climbed to the top rope and hit the 450 to earn a hard fought victory.

 

Winner – ‘Unbreakable’ Bobby Jackson

 

Weapon X then declared that he would defend his title, and declared his opponent ‘The Ultimate Challenge’

 

IWF RING OF FAITH CHAMPIONSHIP

 

Weapon X v The Ultimate Boog

 

The Ultimate Boog (Boogie Knights in a surprisingly convincing Ultimate Warrior costume) turned out to offer very little in the way of a challenge for the ROF Champion. It seemed as though the brutal Weapon X could have beaten the challenger before he did. After a monumental beating, Boog was eventually put out of his misery with a top rope splash.

 

Winner – Weapon X

 

VACANT IWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

 

The Avery Brothers v Assassin & Jimmy Blade

 

IWF Champion Assassin and his powerful cohort Jimmy Blade spent much of the match attempting to stop Shaun Avery making the tag to his well-rested brother Youngsta. Eventually though, the tag did come and the match began to break down, with each man hitting one of his patented moves to great effect. Assassin attempted to finish off the match from the top rope, but was sent crashing to the outside when Blade was sent flying into the ropes. A Shaun-ing Wizard and a springboard Moonsault from Youngsta later, and the Averys were two-time IWF Tag Team Champions.

 

Winners – The Avery Brothers

The IWF make their London debut on Wednesday 27th October, when they perform at the Viz magazine 25th birthday party. The event takes place at the café de Paris. Unfortunately, no tickets are available for this event as it is by invite only, but the IWF roster are said to be tremendously excited at the prospect of performing on this star studded occasion.

TWO Newsletter Main Event

- By Stephen Ashfield

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

 

Kid (man)ding the Viewers!

 

Yes, this week I’m going to take a look at the latest storyline for Billy Kidman. Not that this guy has had that many storylines since he joined WWE after the demise of WCW. He did tag with Rey Mysterio for a while and it oh so looked as if he’d turn heel on Mysterio and challenge him for his cruiserweight title. But that never happened and I’ve never really worked out why.

 

Now he has a storyline surrounding his Shooting Star Splash which has suddenly become the most dangerous move in wrestling. Well it is when Brock Lesnar tries it, but for himself not his opponent. Kurt just lay there as Brock sailed past him! OK it’s a decent enough storyline which makes Kidman a crazy heel but just look at the damage this has caused.

 

Kidman was tag champ with Paul London when Kidman injured Chavo Guerrero, his sudden reluctance to use the move didn’t just cost them the tag titles but split up a very promising team. So all of a sudden WWE decide yet again to build a tag team and then destroy it when it was at its peak. I’ll never work out why they do that when there isn’t a great number of tag teams in WWE that fans actually care about.

 

But it wasn’t just the tag division that suffered when Kidman started going crazy. Take a look at the cruiserweight division. It’s had a tough time this year with wrestlers such as Chavo Classic and Jacqueline holding the belt. Ultimo Dragon was wasted, Rey Mysterio flits in and out of the division and Jamie Knoble is history. At ‘No Mercy’ Spike Dudley defended his title against Nunzio. That match had hardly any impetus pumped into it. One match on Smackdown and there we are, a title challenge on the Sunday. Meanwhile the match between Kidman and London had been brilliantly built up over the past few weeks and has a follow-on storyline. Surely Kidman should be cruiserweight champion.

 

Is it right that the champion of the cruiserweight division is being totally overshadowed by what’s happening to Kidman? No it’s not. Besides, the Kidman v London match was far better than the Dudley v Nunzio bout. If the Kidman match had been for the title (will the champ fight or lose his title and be sacked?), that would have given the cruiserweight division a big push.

 

In a way it’s good that the cruiserweights had two matches at ‘No Mercy’ but now it looks as if Kidman is being pushed into matches with wrestlers from outside that division. That means the tag and cruiserweight divisions have lost the services of Kidman and he’ll be stuck in mid-card until the storyline grows stale and ends. I wonder what Vince actually wants to do with the cruiserweight division, I wonder actually if he knows himself!
