Wade Barrett to Be Repackaged?

WWE Creative are considering a repackaging and new push for Wade Barrett. Barrett hasn't been on TV since he took several losses to Daniel Bryan last month

Opinionated View- So this will be Barrett's fourth different gimmick. I like the guy and while there is much needed work how the hell is he supposed to get over when the WWE books him so awful. I mean you can give the greatest gimmick ever it won't work if he booked to be a jobber to the stars and you give up on everything after a few weeks. 

WWE Superstars Taping Results (SPOILERS)

* Rob Van Dam defeated Curt Hawkins.

* Damien Sandow defeated Justin Gabriel

Divas Title Match Set For WWE Battleground

- WWE has announced that Brie Bella will get a shot at the WWE Divas Title at WWE Battleground against AJ Lee. The announcement notes:

With the full attention of Brie Bella — who is no doubt eager to prove that she's more than a "cheap, interchangeable, expendable, useless woman," to quote the champion — focused solely on her, will the mercurial AJ Lee be able to back up her brazen words? Or will WWE's black widow find herself trapped in a web of defeat as Brie begins her second reign as queen of the mountain?

Opinionated View- Damn Damn Damn! What about Nattie oh wait I forgot this is WWE. And even when AJ and Kaitlyn were have pretty good matches WWE thought the Bellas mattered more in the company pecking order.

Ken Anderson Says He Will Be Back With TNA

During an interview with 4th and Pain Ken Anderson told show hosts Adam Carriker of the Washington Redskins and former wrestling announcer Chuck Carroll that he expects to have a new deal with Impact Wrestling "within a week."

He said his agent and lawyer are currently working on finishing up a deal with the company and that he enjoyed the way he was being used creatively before his contract expired.

Not being with the company hasn't really crossed his mind. He's also open to taking independent dates.

Opinionated View- First I gotta think the creative team is going "Thanks for blowing your surprise return." But I'm encouraged by this it might be a sign the cuts are done and TNA can get back to business as usual.

9/26 WWE Smackdown Report

We are in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and your announcers are Michael ‘Squiggy’ Cole and John ‘Lenny’ Layfield.
We start off with Triple H making his way to the ring. Triple H welcomes everyone to Smackdown. He says that he has heard all of the rumors and backstage buzz and the media buzz. He says that a lot of ugly words have been said about the last month like favoritism and abuse of power. That is utterly ridiculous. There are times when WWE Superstars are unable to accept their own failures and shortcomings.

They would rather blame management for their failure. The thing is that him and his wife are willing to accept that burden as the authority figures in the company. They cannot make everybody happy so they decide to do what is best for business.

Even when they do things like they did on Monday, they get criticism. They had an 11 on 3 elimination handicap match with eleven superstars against The Shield. Hunter says that is bad on their part?

We see highlights from the match.

Hunter says any angst in the locker room was settled there, but that wasn’t good enough. That decision was not made to quell an uprising, it was to do what was best for business.

Miz’ music plays and he makes his way to the stage and then to the ring.

Miz throws out a really and asks if Hunter really thinks that he has been fair and impartial.

Hunter asks Miz about coming out here to be fair and impartial after all of the opportunities given to him. He has been given opportunities and he has failed. Then he blames someone else. Hunter says that Miz asked for the opportunity to be in the ring with the Face of the WWE. He got to be in the ring with Randy Orton. Hunter says that Miz choked and we go to footage from last Monday.

Hunter asks if that was Management’s fault. Hunter says that is probably hard to swallow and must sting since it happened in front of his family. How does giving Miz the opportunity and failing on Triple H?

Hunter says that Miz was not ready to compete last week so he protected Miz. He was protecting Miz from himself because he would have gotten into the ring with Randy Orton and Hunter says that he does not know what Randy would have done to Miz. He gave Miz another opportunity. A platform to say what he wanted. He gave Miz an episode of MizTV with the Big Show. Miz squandered that too and we see footage from Monday night.

Miz says that all Hunter gave him was a set up. Hunter was the good cop and then the bad cop, his wife interrupted and had Big Show knock him out. He thanks Hunter for the opportunity.

Hunter says that his wife had every right to be in the ring because of what Miz said about his wife.

Miz says that he called Stephanie a ‘castrating witch’ but he should have changed the ‘w’ to a ‘b’.

Hunter says Miz runs his mouth and he cannot back it up. Hunter says that his wife was justified for what she did. Tempers ran hot and everyone was upset. After the beating in front of his mom and dad, he knows why Miz was upset. Maybe Miz said something he shouldn’t have said. Maybe his wife did something that she might have regretted.

Hunter says that he wants to give Miz another chance. Everything else is water under the bridge.

Hunter says that Miz is feeling fine tonight, so he will give Miz the opportunity he could not take on Monday. He will give Miz a match against Randy Orton for a chance at retribution or revenge.

Miz accepts the match.

Hunter asks if he could get his parents to Milwaukee in time for the match so they can see him get retribution. Hunter tells Miz to get changed for his opportunity.

Alberto Del Rio walks in the back and we go to commercial.

Match Number One: Alberto Del Rio versus R Truth in a Non Title Match

Del Rio with a kick and punch to Truth followed by kicks and head butts in the corner. The referee pulls Del Rio out of the corner and Truth with a punch and he puts Del Rio in the corner and he punches him until Del Rio gets into the ropes.

Truth with a suplex into a stunner for a near fall. Truth misses the scissors kick and then he misses a splash into the corner. Del Rio with a super kick for the three count.

Winner: Alberto Del Rio

After the match, Del Rio puts Truth in the cross arm breaker.

TNA News: New Arrival Teased

A video also ran hyping the return of Lei'D Tapa. Tapa was one of the Gut Check winners and has been working for OVW since.

Opinionated View- I have no idea who Ethan could be. Tapa didn't impress me in her Gut Check and I'm not impressed with what I have seen since.

Update on Hulk Hogan’s Status With TNA

At last night's TNA Impact tapings, the promotion shot an angle which could end up being the final appearance of Hulk Hogan in TNA.

It had already been reported that Hogan's contract expires at the beginning of October. The two sides had been in negotiations for a new deal, but nothing has been signed. Last night's appearance was the final one scheduled under the old contract. If this is it for Hogan in TNA, his final appearance will be next week's Impact Wrestling on October 3rd.

TNA is in the process of re-evaluating every talent contract and employee after taking Impact Wrestling on the road did not lead to increased revenue. The company has been making changes for months. Hogan has the most expensive contract in the company, and similar to AJ Styles, Ken Anderson and Mickie James where the two sides were apart on what each side wants. Styles opted to sign an extension through December, while Anderson and James are gone.

For several months there had been talk that Hogan was unhappy with TNA, especially after his daughter Brooke was let go by the promotion. Hogan was reportedly upset that he was not informed about her release and felt that he should have been the one to inform his daughter. There was also talk that Hogan wasn't happy that Brooke relocated from Florida to Nashville with the idea that Dixie Carter would use her contacts to help her break into the country music scene, which never happened.

During a fan Q&A in Toronto, Hogan knocked the promotion in a roundabout way, stating that what they needed was "real leadership" (meaning Eric Bischoff) and an "unlimited checkbook" in order to accomplish everything the company needed. Most felt that these comments were a "slap in the face" to Dixie Carter, even if Hogan hadn't meant them. Other sources stated that Bischoff had pretty much "been given the keys to the kingdom" but that the company had shown no growth, and that some revenue streams were even doing worse.

With Hogan's possible departure, many are wondering what will happen with Bischoff. He could remain with the promotion, but many feel that he will remain loyal to Hogan. Jeff Jarrett was working backstage at the St. Louis TNA tapings and was also at last night's tapings in Little Rock. Jarrett has taken a more active role in TNA business in recent weeks, which could be a sign that he's preparing for a much larger role.

DGUSA and EVOLVE News and Notes

- EVOLVE 23 and 24 from Queens and Brooklyn, NY are now up for Video on Demand here. They were delayed as had a server upgrade scheduled so they could sync better with the Roku channel, which will launch any day now.

- There are plans for DGUSA and EVOLVE to return to New York City on November 6 (Queensborough Elks Lodge) and 17 (The Lyceum in Brooklyn).

- Management is looking into getting a permanent Internet line put into The Lyceum so future events can be live via iPPV. They are also looking into how to better light the shows and put on a better production at that venue. The hope is to make those two venues their home base going forward instead of running different markets every time they have a loop. They will run other places but the feeling is that they lost momentum by running every so often in different markets.

- The AR Fox vs. Ricochet match at EVOLVE 23 kept going even with a broken ring, similar to an incident in ECW with Sabu vs. Rob Van Dam. During the Johnny Gargano vs. Rich Swann match a bolt snapped and the welding came apart. While they tried to fix it, Gabe Sapolsky thought it was taking too long and they were going to lose the crowd, so he decided to throw out all of their plans for the main event and improvise. Both Ricochet and FOX were said to be happy with the match after.

Sapolsky said: "As an opportunity to put them in a unique position of having to call everything on the fly so I figured it would be a learning experience for both."

- There are no plans to return to Ridgewood, New York at this time.

- The Young Bucks are the first talents booked for November.

- DGUSA: Enter the Dragon: Third Anniversary Celebration is finally out on DVD

Update on WWE Saturday Morning Slam

- At this time, there is no confirmation that Saturday Morning Slam will be returning this season to children's Saturday morning programming block Vortexx. WWE has not taped any new episodes and no syndicates have been informed the show is returning.

WWE Battleground Match to be Set up Monday (SPOILERS)

As previously reported, Dusty, Cody and Dustin Rhodes will all be at Raw on Monday. They will be there at the invitation of Triple H, with the idea to book a Rhodes Family vs. Shield six man tag team match. The match has reportedly been on the schedule for the Battleground PPV since last week.

Opinionated View- The Rhodes Family you gotta be kidding me. I want Cody to do well but come on Dusty who looks like he's 80 year's old whose last good match came in the Reagan years? We really got to see him wrestle again and have the Shield sell for him. You want to do a big match with him? And Dustin the guy whose gotten how many chances and when was the last time people gave a damn about him 1998? You want to a match with Dusty and Dustin in Cody's corner I could get behind that. Also doesn't this screw up Ziggler and Usos who are feuding with the Shield? 

Update on TNA Impact Tapings Possibly Heading to One Location

- Previously there were discussions about moving the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings back to a singular location. Las Vegas was mentioned as a possibility, but was then ruled out due to worries about the costs of running on the West Coast. 

The latest word on the situation is that Las Vegas is now back in the mix as a possible new home for the promotion. At this time, no official decisions have been made. 

Opinionated View- And until we hear an official word from TNA it all a lot of speculation.  We will have to wait and see.
