US News - by Matt Fletcher

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

 

WWE NEWS

 

During the previous weeks RAW event, Ric Flair and Vince McMahon had a heated confrontation backstage. Apparently this stemmed from Flair's promo about "breaking in virgins" after which McMahon waited around for Flair backstage. When Flair emerged through the curtain McMahon was seen screaming at him about how it was highly inappropriate for Flair to say that on TV and totally out of line. McMahon was apparently irate about the commentary and those backstage were talking about the confrontation all night.

 

The main reason Vince McMahon was said to be completely irate was because there were a number of sponsors and affiliates in attendance at the show because it was the New York market, where many of them are based. McMahon was said to be totally embarrassed and somewhat concerned about their reactions to what Flair was saying.

 

Ric Flair's virgin comments were edited off the U.K. airing of WWE RAW

 

Some, however, were perplexed when McMahon later booked Gene Snitsky to come out to ringside with a baby carriage and the whole miscarriage angle involving Lita.

 

In addition to the matches already announced earlier, WWE have announced a Battle Royal for their Taboo Tuesday PPV event.

 

This will be a Diva Battle Royal for the WWE Women's Championship. The interactive element in this match will see fans choosing what the Divas will wear for the contest.

 

The following is an excerpt from an article on ABC.net regarding the WWE films project starring John Cena: "Queensland's Arts Minister has welcomed the announcement another US feature film has started production on the Gold Coast. Anna Bligh told State Parliament World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Films is producing the action movie, The Marine. Ms Bligh told the House, the company will spend about $15 million in Queensland."

 

WWE.com has a new interview up with Dawn Marie talking about her current feud with Miss Jackie. Also on WWE.com, an interview with Rob Van Dam and Rey Mysterio, where they discuss challenging for the WWE Tag-Team championships.

 

Billy Gunn, who was suspended from the active roster last week, has been sent to rehab. He was found passed out in an airport a couple of weeks ago.

 

The plan for Booker T is to turn him face in the coming months.

 

There is also talk of bringing back Johnny Nitro as a babyface in the next month or two.

 

A few weeks ago, as reported, Pat Patterson was sent on the road to assess WWE house shows and give feedback to management.

 

One of the major problems he cited was the pushing of Triple H on the RAW brand, especially at the expense of building new talent. He was apparently very vocal with his opinions to Vince McMahon and rumours began that he was going to leave the company. Those rumours have now been confirmed as Pat Patteson has handed in notice.

 

He will leave the company after the Taboo Tuesday PPV, the official line being that he is 'retiring'. Off the record, it's said that his leaving is more due to Vince McMahon's desire not to implement changes to the product, particularly the RAW brand. It should be understood that Patterson had been working mainly as a consultant of late, and was not a major force behind storylines.

 

This is potentially huge news for WWE as Patterson has been one of McMahon's closest backstage allies for many years now.

 

At Monday's Smackdown house show in Nottingham, UK, Fit Finlay had a member of talent fake a serious leg injury during a match. This is apparently one of Finlay's favourite spots. In this case, it was Hardcore Holly faking a leg injury against Johnny Stamboli. Finlay uses this spot very often on house shows.

 

Eddie Guerrero is said to be pretty banged up with niggling little injuries but keeps working through whatever pain he's experiencing. It's being said the company need to give him some time off, whether he wants that or not, to heal up properly.

 

Undertaker's neck was giving him some problems during the Smackdown tapings. The pain was stemming from an incident at the weekend when a rope broke with him on it.

 

The problems with the RAW broadcast last week, particularly the picture quality, was due to a combination of factors. The poor ventilation in the arena led to smoke being built up at ringside which, coupled with satellite problems, led to a sub_par show being put out. It was, however, nothing to do with UK broadcast standards.

 

Smackdown wrestlers liked the fact that some fans have bought into the John Cena angle which was put out on RAW. For those of you that missed it, Jim Ross stated that Cena had been "beaten up in a bar" last week, leading to his absence.

 

WWE have recently trademarked clothing under "WWE Team Esteemed" and "Slobber Knocker" brand names. They've also filed an amended paper for the nWo image.

 

Apparently WWE ring announcer Lillian Garcia managed to party just a little too hard on the RAW tour of the United Kingdom last week. Garcia, who was considered by some the “joke of the tour”, had to be helped to her room after the partying and subsequently missed the bus to the airport the next morning. She then had to catch a taxi to the airport and claimed she was waiting for the bus in the wrong area – despite a gaggle of wrestling fans waiting for autographs.

 

1Wrestling reports that WWE agent Dean Malenko was unable to get through to her on the room phone next to most hotel bedsides, and that he didn’t get an answer at the door when he knocked there either. Eventually hotel security was called to enter the room and wake her up.

 

Mick Foley is in negotiations with UBC Radio to host a syndicated radio show, with plans to run in 50 markets. Foley's newest children's book "Tales from Wrescal Lane" is set for release this Tuesday, 10/19. Mick Foley is set to return to WWE pretty soon to promote the book.

 

Booker T continues to get paired against WWE Champion John Bradshaw Layfield on the SmackDown! brand house shows as a babyface. According to one source, it's very likely that Booker T's babyface turn will begin at the SmackDown! tapings in Rockford, Illinois.

 

Thanks to Joe Sperandeo for the following:

 

I'm not sure if anyone else has brought this to your attention yet, but the Undertaker was mentioned in a book that I just finished reading. It's "How to Make Love Like a Porn Star," the Jenna Jameson autobiography. It's a very good book, if anyone is interested. Anyway, here is the excerpt in which she discusses meeting the Undertaker. Tony is Jenna's older brother and these incidents occurred in the early '90s.

 

Tony: Was that the night you met the Undertaker and he knew you from Las Vegas?

 

Jenna: Yeah, the Undertaker was one of the biggest WWF wrestlers at the time. He would put people in coffins and set them on fire in the ring. And the scary thing is, that character he played was not an act. Back when I used to hang out in Jack's shop and make needles for him, the Undertaker used to come in and get tattooed. I obviously never talked back then, because I was so shy. And he was very serious. So I met him that night dancing, and we hung out and became really good friends. And he told me that he took Jack aside one day and said, very serious, "I don't want your girlfriend to be here any more. I think she's a cop."

 

Tony: You were like sixteen years old and eighty pounds.

 

Jenna: Yeah, I never knew that he was the reason why Jack wouldn't let me hang out at the shop. The Undertaker said I'd sit there for six hours and never move or say a word. I guess I creeped everyone out. It's funny that the Undertaker was scared of me. He's probably the most psychotic man I've ever met in my life. He came to one of my dance gigs and this guy asked me, "Can I buy you a drink?" The Undertaker looked at him totally stone cold and said, "Yeah, you can get me a shot of Jaeger and you can get yourself a shot of shut the f**k up."

 

Jordan was there at the time, and the Undertaker said, "I'm going to kick your boyfriend's ass and take you away with me." I knew he was serious. I ran upstairs and told Jordan we had to leave, because this guy was going to beat the f**k out of him and kidnap me. So I never saw him again. I think that was when Jordan forbid me to talk to any more guys on the road.

TNA NEWS

 

Terry Funk is apparently not working the TNA Victory Road pay-per view. The original plan was for him to wrestle Dusty Rhodes, but now the direction they are headed is Dusty Rhodes and Ron Killings vs. Kid Kash and Dallas. Funk apparently opted to not work the show when being informed that Kevin Nash would be involved with it. According to one source, Funk's entire attitude about working the show changed when hearing of Nash's involvement. There is some heat between the two stemming back from 2000 when Nash destroyed Funk during a match at the 2000 WCW Souled Out pay-per view.

 

TNA Impact! (and Xplosion) will be taped tomorrow at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Scheduled for Impact! is NWA Tag-Team Champions Christopher Daniels and James Storm vs. Team Canada, and Jeff Hardy vs. Monty Brown for the title shot against Jeff Jarrett at Victory Road on the line.

 

TNA on TSN in Canada is looking less likely now that WWE Canada president Carl DeMarco found out it would be running in the Monday timeslot. It's apparently 50/50 right now as to whether TNA will still appear on the TSN network.

 

NWA Champion Jeff Jarrett will be on TSN's "Off the Record" with Michael Landsberg, the show that regularly features major WWE stars and management figures in televised shoot interviews.

 

Sean "X_Pac" Waltman won't be used by TNA at this time for a few various reasons.

 

The gimmick involving Scott Hall and Kevin Nash at the Victory Road PPV on 11/7 will be Hall working Jeff Jarrett's corner and Nash working Jeff Hardy's corner, during the NWA Title ladder match main event.

 

::TNA Impact Results-8th october::

  • Jeff Hardy defeated Abyss
  • AJ Styles beat Roderick Strong
  • Roddy Piper announces In the Pit with piper at Victory Road

OTHER NEWS

 

John Tenta (aka the WWF’s Earthquake) was recently diagnosed with Cancer. Below is an update on his health status:

“Good news/Bad news. Good news is the tumor has shrunk at least half, bad news the lymph nodes are the same but only have to shrink 2mm to be normal size again. I go back in tomorrow for the third round of chemo. They are thinking of 4 more chemo treatments so that's three more months. Lots of time to try [to] get my book written. All the best.

'Quake”

Rick Steiner vs. Buff Bagwell and Ricky Morton vs. Tracy Smothers will headline the 10/15 show in Houghton, MI at Michigan Tech University's SDC Wood Gym. Also on the show will be Viscera, Dan Severn, and Demolition Ax.

 

UFC has signed two national television deals. The first is with FOX Sports Net which will be airing four one-hour specials this year. The first will be on 10/17 at 5:00PM on FSN and will feature the Tito Ortiz vs. Chuck Liddell and Robbie Lawler vs. Nick Diaz fights (both knockouts) from the UFC 47: It's On show. The second television deal is with SpikeTV and will be a Tough Enough style reality TV show on training to become a mixed-martial arts fighter. There will be two teams, each coached by a pro UFC fighter. One team will be headlined by Randy Couture, the other by Chuck Liddell. That show will begin airing in January on SpikeTV in a primetime slot.

 

-UFC 50: War of '04 is on October 22nd on PPV and features a headline bout of Tito Ortiz vs. Guy Mezger and Matt Hughes vs. Georges St. Pierre for the vacant Welterweight title. Also fighting on the card is Robbie Lawler vs. Evan Tanner, Frank Trigg vs. Renato Verissimo, and Rich Franklin vs. Jorge Rivera.

 

-PRIDE 28: High Octaine is on 10/31 and features a headline bout of Mirko CroCop vs. Josh Barnett and Vanderlei Silva vs. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson for the Middleweight title. Also on the card is Dan Henderson vs. Kazuhiro Nakamura, Heath Herring vs. Hirotaka Yokoi, and Mark Hunt vs. Daniel Bobish.

 

The UK's Wrestling Channel has announced a new promotion will be joining their lineup of shows. They are currently in negotiations to bring some of the popular "PRIDE" events to fans in the UK.

 

The channel will also be launching "TWC Reload" on Sky Digital channel 428. This will be a chance for fans to see shows from earlier in the year that were first broadcast on "TWC" and also some classic CMLL wrestling.

 

Blake Norton, front-man for "The Bagpipe Report", will be leaving the show soon. As yet there has been no-one announced to fill the role but Mo Chatra, formerly of Powerslam Magazine, is seen to be a popular choice.

 

Staff at the UK's "Wrestling Channel" are reporting that they were physically threatened by event staff at WWE's event earlier at Wembley, London. Apparently they were threatened for simply giving away free 'TWC' merchandise to fans outside of the WWE event, the same situation also occurred at Sheffield the night before. TWC Staff were told to leave before things started to "get nasty". The merchandise was being given away for free by TWC in a public place and as such it seems the actions of event security were totally un-justified. To avoid any further confrontation, TWC workers left immediately

TWO Newsletter Main Event

- By Stephen Ashfield

It’s just not cool!

 

WWE are crying out for new stars, just look at Raw and Smackdown at present, it’s the same big names every week. At times you can predict what matches will be seen. Take Smackdown, it’s obvious Eddie and Big Show will either be tagging together against Jindrak and Reigns or in singles matches with them, far too predictable. But on last week’s Smackdown a star was born, but has it all happened far too soon?

 

We’ve seen the promo’s for Carlito Caribbean Cool for weeks now and of course it all resembles a Razor Ramon take off. Those promo’s are important as they help build up anticipation without the wrestler even having to put his trunks on and wrestle. The debut of a new star is also important but I think WWE have taken a massive gamble with Carlito.

 

I couldn’t help thinking of Yokozuna this week. He had his promo’s building up this new monster who’d dominate the company but then he made his debut. It wasn’t in a championship match, he didn’t win a belt on his debut, he won squash match after squash match. Then he had a match with Virgil, won that easy, then onwards to a major feud on tv with Jim Duggan and onto the Royal Rumble which he won to get his Wrestlemania IX title shot.

 

That’s how it should be, Carlito should have had a few matches against low-card opponents such as Scotty 2 Hotty and Charlie Haas, headlined a few Velocity cards and then gone onto his first major feud. That way the fans knew what to expect. But no, Carlito gets a shot at John Cena on his first Smackdown and wins the US Title in his first match.

 

What if he’d stunk the house out on Smackdown? What if the pressure gets to him? If he copes with all this he could be a major star in the making. Or is Vince just using him to get into Puerto Rico? News has come this week that Smackdown has a new PPV in January which just happens to take place in Puerto Rico!

 

It’s not the first time this has happened. Take a look back at Raw and Gail Kim. She was heavily hyped then won the Women’s Title in her first match. Kim proved to be a total disaster and now only gets trusted as one of Trish’s followers.

 

It’s a big gamble Vince is taking and I hope it works out. We can look forward to Carlito v Cena when he returns from making ‘The Marine’ and before then it looks as if Chavo Guerrero will be getting a push towards Carlito. Interesting times ahead that’s for sure.

 

Finally it’s time for the Piledriver Plug. Edition two of my wrestling magazine is out next week straight after the Taboo Tuesday PPV. It’s up to sixty pages (only one of which is an ad), has full coverage of WWE in Manchester with some exclusive photo’s plus interviews with Colt Cabana, Brian Dixon, Kung Fu and Jacqueline. It costs £2.25 or get edition one and edition two for £4.20. A 12 edition subscription is just £15 with a weekly newsletter and PPV Previews. For more info call 07787 912 285 or email me at: [mageditoruk@yahoo.co.uk].

Thanks as a reader Pab, I've always enjoyed the Newsletter and I can't believe that you made me twice member of the week. You have my respect and admiration for doing this great job for such a long time.

 

On a side note... my thread won Non Wrestling thread of the week... thats the second time I've done that... maybe I should stick to them instead of wrestling ones...
