Rumors on Possible Finish to TLC Main Event

- An report says that WWE is going back and forth on how the company will handle the finish of the title bout between Randy Orton and John Cena at TLC. Prior to Survivor Series, the were reportedly no plans for the match to be a title unification bout, and the company then made sure not to use the word "unification" match on Raw last week when describing the main event.

However, those plans have now changed when Triple H was interviewed by Michael Cole and he declared the match a title unification bout. There is still speculation in WWE that the match will simply end with each wrestler grabbing the other's belt, resulting in making Cena WWE champion and Orton the World Heavyweight champion

Opinionated View- What a joke! You have a huge match that is going to change the landscape of the show as a whole since there will only be 1 world title again yet your throwing it together last minute. There was no foreshadowing this was coming reports say there was just going to be another Big Show vs Orton and another Del Rio vs Cena match. 

I stand by what I said earlier it's clear WWE saw TNA was building for a unification match when AJ returns and wanted to do it first.

Updated Lineup for TNA's One Night Only: Hardcore Justice Event

- Below is updated lineup for the upcoming TNA One Night Only: Hardcore Justice PPV event set for Lowell, Massachussetts on December 29:

Steel Cage Match: Bully Ray vs. Mr. Anderson
Tables Match: Ethan Carter III vs. Tommy Dreamer
X-Division Xcape Match: Samoa Joe vs. Austin Aries vs. Chris Sabin
Full Metal Mayhem: Daniels & Kazarian vs. Eric Young & Abyss

Opinionated View- Better Card than TLC! 

WWE Creative Constantly in Flux

- A report claims that there is panic within WWE concerning creative plans. Ideas are said to be changing very rapidly in recent months and long term plans are in a state of flux.

The original creative plans were to have a big match between Triple H and the Big Show after Big Show's match with Randy Orton at Survivor Series. Those plans changed to apparently book a rematch between Show and Orton in a Tables Match at TLC, hence why Show put Orton through a table on Raw some weeks ago. That plan also changed at the last minute, and WWE has now opted to book Cena vs. Orton at the PPV.

Another idea was apparently to have Big E Langston remain as a heel and feud with John Cena for the World Heavyweight title. That idea was also scrapped, and Langston has made a full face turn.

Opinionated View- Yet it all has sucked. So why would the long term plans be chaining? Its simple once they have the shows written Triple H or Vince or maybe both change it on a whim.

Report Says Chris Benoits's Son Wants to Be a Wrestler

Benoit, 20, is around 6-2 ½ and checked in on joining the New Japan dojo along with Cody Hall (son of Scott Hall).

WWE Considering Rey Mysterio vs. Sin Cara For WrestleMania 30

- WWE officials are considering reviving their their plans to have Ray Mysterio vs. Sin Cara at WrestleMania 30. Even though Sin Cara hasn't been on TV since August, his merchandise is reporting selling very well and the company would like to try and break the world record for the most people wearing a mask in one area.

This was the plan for last year, but it fell through after both men were injured.

Opinionated View- Given the two guys we are talking about there is good chance they will both be hurt again.

    Thanksgiving Impact Wrestling Report

    -After a video package reminding us of Ken Anderson beating Bully Ray last week, the show opens on a casket, complete with floral arrangement. Ken Anderson says in a voice over that tonight we say goodbye to the Aces & Eights. 
    -Dixie Carter comes down to the ring to massive heat. She starts talking about hiring a personal assistant, but the crowd is chanting for AJ Styles. Dixie announces her new assistant, Rockstar Spud. Spud comes down to the ring and thanks Dixie for the opportunity, and puts her over to tons of boos and a "USA!" chant. He tells the roster that he's watching them. Dixie announces a big main event, with the winners getting a Thanksgiving feast, as the crowd keeps chanting for AJ Styles. 
    -Ethan Carter III comes down to the ring and thanks Aunt D for flying in his opponent tonight from half way around the world. 
    (1) Ethan Carter III vs. Curry Man
    Looks like Curry Man is back on Impact Wrestling. I wouldn't expect this comeback tour to last very long. Curry Man lands a flurry of right hands and forearm chops, but Carter levels him from behind and starts to slowly pick apart his opponent. EC3 with a corner clothesline, followed by a back drop suplex. Curry gets a knee lift followed by a running shiver and a standing clothesline. He hits the flying hip attack and heads up to the top turnbuckle, but Carter recovers, tosses him to the floor, and turns him inside-out with a clothesline. The One-Percenter (front headlock driver) puts away Curry Man with ease. 
    Decision: Ethan Carter III wins via pinfall

    -Backstage, Kurt Angle tells Gunner his focus is on Bobby Roode. James Storm comes in and says he'll settle his problems with Gunner later. Kurt is fired up for Team Angle vs. Team Roode. 
    (2) Velvet Sky vs. Lei'd Tapa
    Velvet goes right after Tapa as soon as the bell rings, taking her down to one knee, but the much larger opponent over powers her. Tapa runs into the ropes and Velvet starts working over one of her knees, until Gail Kim (who is at ringside) trips her up. The referee tosses Gail from ringside, which the fans love, but Tapa continues to roll through Velvet regardless. Sky with a sit-down facebuster, but she runs into a huge big boot. Tapa with the TKO (fireman's carry stunner) for the 1-2-3. 
    -Video package for TNA's One Night Only "World Cup" pay-per-view. 
    -EY and ODB are out in the ring with turkey costumes. It appears we're going to have a tag team contest, and the losers will have to wear the suits. 
    -Zema Ion is now the official BroMans DJ, doing their ring introductions and making random noises. Pretty effective heat-drawing gimmick, as it's really annoying. 
    (3) The BroMans vs. Norv Fernum & Dewey Barnes
    Robbie E gets on the mic and calls Norv Fernum a "hairless hamster". Jessie Godderz plays up the size difference between the two teams, before slapping Dewey in the face. The underdogs try to steal the win with stereo roll-ups, but the champions kick out. They hit the BroDown (the Hart Attack) quickly for the easy squash match. 
    Decision: The BroMans win via pinball

    -The BroMans make the losers put on turkey costumes. Fernum and Dewey put on the suits and dance around with EY and ODB, which the fans love. The tag team champions leave upset that the crowd likes them more. 
    -Footage airs from AJ Styles title defense in Wrestle-1, brought to you by the "Friends of AJ". Dixie Carter throws a fit backstage, telling AJ that she's going to lawyer up, and she wants her world title back. 
    -Team Roode is backstage pumping up his team for tonight's big main event match. 
    -There's an "official" funeral ceremony for the passing of Aces & Eights, complete with a priest. Kurt Angle is there, laughing. Magnus is texting. EY and crying his eyes out, and Mike Tenay asks him what the hell he's crying about. Ken Anderson comes out of the coffin. This a pretty good comedy segment, with Samoa Joe eating from a meat and cheese plate sent over by "Bully Ray's ex-father-in-law." Kurt Angle gets up and makes fun of D-Lo Browns head shake, before putting his bobble head into the coffin. Joe, who is still eating, comes up and wants to put beer in the coffin, but decides it's too nice to waste, and they drink them instead. Mike Tenay lays to rest Taz's cut, and Brooke's booty shorts (he puts the shorts in his suit coat when nobody is looking). EY is up next, and he's got his turkey suit, which he puts in the coffin. Bully Ray walks into the chapel, and tells Ken Anderson to sleep with one eye open, for the interest of himself and his pregnant wife. He calls death "the final awakening" and walks off. 
    -More Rockstar Spud shenanigans backstage. 

    (4) Elimination Tag Team Match
    Team Roode vs. Team Angle
    Kurt Angle and Booby Roode lock up first, but Roode tags out to Kazarian, and Bad Influence double teams Angle until Magnus tags in and goes to work. Magnus catches Kazarian with a big dead-lift suplex, and he walks into the babyface corner to get clocked by all of Team Angle. James Storm tags in and goes to work on Christopher Daniels, and he and Gunner double team Bad Influence until the referee can get control of the match. Storm taks out Chris Sabin, then Daniels with an enzuigir and a backstabber, then hits Sabin with Closing Time. Kazarian gets involved, and gets nailed with the Last Call Superkick, but Sabin rolls up the Cowboy from behind for the 1-2-3. 
    Chris Sabin eliminates James Storm
    Magnus is in for the babyfaces and goes to work on Daniels, but gets caught with a knee in the corner. E.G.O. now with the triple team and the quick tags. Magnus fights back and hits a huge STO on Daniels, before making the hot tag to Gunner. Gunner catches Kaz in mid-air and hits a huge backbreaker. He locks in the Gun Rack submission, but Chris Sabin distracts the referee, letting Bad Influence go Hi-Lo on Gunner for the quick pin. 
    Kazarian eliminates Gunner
    Magnus is in for Team Angle, but it's now 4-on-2 and he falls to the Bad Influence double team. Magnus battles back, tossing Daniels to the floor. He hits a flying clothesline on Daniels, but grabs his knee and plays up an injury as Angle and the referee check on him. There's a commercial break, where trainers take Magnus to the back, so it's now 1-on-4 with Team Roode having a serious advantage. 
    Injury eliminates Magnus
    Kurt Angle does what he can and gets an inside cradle on Daniels, but the referee is distracted by all the heel antics on the apron, and misses the pin. Bad Influence with Hi-Lo on Angle, and in comes Bobby Roode who stacks up his opponent. Roode accidentally takes out Sabin, and Angle fires up with clotheslines and flying forearm shots. Belly-to-belly on Angle, followed by one on Sabin. One German, two Germans, and three Germans find their mark on Roode, and Daniels comes in to receive a trio of his own. Kazarian is up next, so make that nine German suplexes in this sequence. The tenth suplex hits both members of Bad Influence, and Chris Sabin gets an Angle Slam for his trouble. 
    Angle applies the Ankle Lock on both Kazarian and Daniels, but Bobby Roode brings a steal chair into the ring; Angle ducks under a chair shot and hits the Angle Slam. Kurt grabs the steel chair and realizes he's not going to win this match, so he attacks Roode with the chair instead. 
    Kurt Angle eliminates Kurt Angle. 
    Decision: Team Roode wins via disqualification

    -After the main event, Kurt Angle hits Sabin in the face with the chair, and clears the ring of all the heels, standing tall all on his own. 
    -Backstage, Team Roode celebrates their "victory" and Roode wants them to think about all the things they are thankful for. He says he's now beaten Kurt Angle for a third straight time, and he is unbeatable. 
    -James Storm wants to know what's going on with Gunner, as he threw in the towel last week, and now they lost to Team Roode. Gunner asks if they have a plan as a team, or if it's just the James Storm Show, and walks away. Storm says nobody dictates his future, especially Gunner. 
    -Next week it's going to be Jeff Hardy vs. Bully Ray in a Tables Match, and Magnus vs. Kurt Angle in a Last Man Standing Match as the semi-final round matches in the TNA world title tournament. 
    -Rockstar Spud comes out and brings down all the winners of tonight's show, which includes Bad Influence, Bobby Roode, Chris Sabin, Lei'd Tapa, Gail Kim, the BroMans and Zema Ion. Velvet Sky comes down with Sabin. They all sit around a table with a ton of food at it. Roode tells Velvet Sky that she has to leave, because she didn't win anything tonight, and Sabin makes her leave. Zema gets to stay, because he's awesome. 
    -Roode kicks off the ass-kissing by thanking Dixie Carter for their careers, and for Thanksgiving dinner. Daniels says he's thankful for being well-endowed. Kazarian says he's thankful that Joseph Park isn't here, and that he gets to spend tonight with E.G.O. Gail Kim thanks Lei'd Tapa, and that she's the most dominant TNA Knockout in the history of the company. Sabin is up next, and is thankful for the beautiful …. luxurious … hair that is on his head. No Velvet. And for the X-Division title, and Velvet gets an afterthought. The BroMans thank Phil Heath, their new DJ Zema Ion, and that they didn't have to wear turkey suits. 
    -Kurt Angle has decided he's had enough of Roode talking about himself, and says he sees a ring full of turkeys, not winners. He says they all cheated to win tonight, so none of them will get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Roode challenges him to get in the ring, and Angle says he's brought along a few friends to even the odds. Out comes James Storm, Gunner, Dewey & Norv (still wearing the turkey suits), Velvet Sky, ODB and EY. This leads to a massive brawl and food fight. Velvet smashes pie all over Gail Kim, as ODB takes out Lei'd Tapa with a steel chair. EY starts attacking people with a turkey (to a big "TNA" chant), and finishers start flying all over the place. Norv and Dewey hit "Flying Turkeys" across the ring on the tag champs. The babyfaces all celebrate with a case of beer to end Impact Wrestling and Thanksgiving Night.

    WWE's Possible Plans For Hulk Hogan

    As we've reported, WWE officials have been negotiating with Hulk Hogan about a return to the company. Now The Wrestling Observer says they are discussing having Hogan team up with John Cena at Wrestlemania XXX.

    Opinionated View- That would really suck. I love Hogan but the guy can barley walk he should not be wrestling and well Cena is Cena. Good news is since it the observer odds are Dave is just making it up on the fly.

    WWE News: Update On Christian

    - The reason that Christian hasn't return yet is because he hasn't been cleared by doctors after the concussion he received a couple of months ago. The plan is for him to return to WWE television by early December.

    More Details On WWE's Potential Signing Of Davey Richards And Eddie Edwards

    - There were no issues with Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards' most recent tryout with WWE. They are set to return for the next WWE NXT tapings in January, but haven't been offered official contracts yet. (CreditRajah)

    WWE NXT writer Ryan Ward is making a push for Triple H to sign the two, who have also received good reactions from NXT trainers Billy Gunn and Bill DeMott. 

    WWE is allowing the two to finish their commitments with Ring of Honor, including the show in New York City on December 14, but has told them not to take any more dates with the promotion.

    Opinionated View- Why the hell haven't they signed them yet? I Just hep WWE uses them right. 

    WWE Planning Big Push In Royal Rumble For Roman Reigns

    There are currently plans for Roman Reigns to get a huge push in the 2014 WWE Royal Rumble Match. He will be booked to get several impressive eliminations, similar to Kane and Kevin Nash in the past.

    Goldberg Says Triple H Has Contacted Him About Returning To WWE

    Bill Goldberg appeared at the C4 Comic Con in Winnipeg a few weeks ago and was asked about appearing at Wrestlemania XXX for WWE in 2014. He said that Triple H has called him several times and they've talked, but there is no official deal yet. 

    He said that the is open to a return as he would like his son to see him wrestle at least once on a major stage, but would only do it for the right amount of money. He added that he would never call WWE personally and ask to come back. He pointed out that the WWE knows what needs to be done if they want him back. A source said his financial demands were "very significant". 

    Goldberg also talked about WWE trying to push the idea of him getting an enormous pop ("think of the pop you'll get") but he said that's the wrong way to get him to sign. 

    Opinionated View- If they wanted to bring him back for the hall of fame that would be one thing  but they appear to want him to work a match and that would be awful. Given his age the fact he hasn't wrestled in years.

    TNA Changing The Way They Do Commentary

    - Other than the episode of Impact Wrestling that aired on November 20, Taz and Mikey Tenay have not been at the recent Impact TV tapings. TNA has instead been sending them to Nashville to do taped commentary.

    Update On Davey Richards' Neck Injury

    As previously reported, Davey Richards pulled out of a December 7th appearance at Pro Wrestling NOAH due to a neck injury.

    There are some who believe that Richards was injured during his tag team match against The Ascension in WWE NXT. It appeared to happen when Richards was dropped on his head, as there was immediate concern he was hurt. He was checked out after the match and didn't appear to have suffered any injuries. No one had heard anything else until news was revealed that he pulled out of an appearance with NOAH.

    WWE Reportedly Expecting a Poor Survivor Series Buy Rate

    - At this time, the word is that WWE is not expecting a big buy rate for this year's Survivor Series PPV. During the show, the company was disappointed when the social media trends for their event failed to produce more than the NFL game and the American Music Awards.

    Opinionated View- Well duh not helped by the fact you had a piss poor card that you made no one care about. Even if that had been a football game no one cared about played by two winless teams and the AMA's had been cancelled they wouldn't have gotten a great butyrate with Orton vs Big Show as a main event.

    - AJ Styles will take part in a European tour in March. "An Evening With AJ Styles" is scheduled for March 6-11 in England and Scotland. At this time, each show will include a meet and greet and Q&A with the fans.

    The release of Styles' autobiography "Phenomenal" has been pushed back to the first quarter of 2014. Styles' representative Bill Behrens had the following to say about the delay…

    "The book was originally slated for an earlier release but was delayed so changes could be made in various chapters including the one dedicated to TNA."

    11/26 WWE Main Event TV taping spoilers

    Dark Match

    1. Justin Gabriel defeated Hunico. Gabriel won the basic house show style warmup match.

    WWE Main Event

    1. Alberto Del Rio beat Dolph Ziggler. Del Rio won with the Cross Arm Breaker. Awesome match. They really went all out and the crowd was into it the whole time. This was better than their two pay-per-view matches earlier this year.

    2. Damien Sandow beat Santino Marella. Sandow won with his You're Welcome finisher. Pretty much a squash. Sandow cut a promo before the match insulting the crowd and calling himself "still the uncrowned world champion." He demanded better opponents.

    Triple H cut a promo on the screen saying he wants the titles to be unified at TLC. He wants only one WWE champion. So I guess they are guaranteeing one champion at TLC? I can't see the Titantron from my seat so I might not have gotten the full context of the promo.

    3. Kofi Kingston beat Fandango (w/Summer Rae). Kingston won with Trouble in Paradise. Fundamentally solid, but the crowd had no reason to get invested in either man, although the kids got into at the end. No follow up on Sunday's actions from Kofi. This concluded the Main Event taping.
