Dixie Carter Making Big Announcement on Monday

– The TNA Twitter account announced that Dixie Carter is set to make a “huge announcement” on Monday at noon EST. While there’s no word on what the announcement is about, the obvious speculation is that it has to do with Impact Wrestling’s future, either on Destination America or elsewhere:

Opinionated View- I just hope it's something solid

TNA Impact Wrestling Report: Countdown to Glory

Dixie Carter, The Champion and His Challenger
Carter says despite being the unbendable, unbreakable, unpinned, un-submitted, undisputed, undefeated World Heavyweight Champion, he’s not in a very good mood – because no one’s talking about the him, rather they’re clamoring about his challenger, Drew Galloway.
Carter calls out Dixie Carter for being one of Galloway’s most prolific supporters.
Dixie tells EC3 he’s been a great champion in the ring, but outside the ring, he’s been an embarrassment. Dixie reminds EC3 why he wasn’t selected for Team TNA, because he’d made it clear he wanted no part of TNA vs. GFW.
Carter addresses Galloway by saying that Galloway’s time for self-worship is coming to an end.

TNA Reportedly Taping TV in India

It had been previously reported that TNA was planning to tour India in late 2015, where they would tape TV. now reports that several TNA stars have pulled out of bookings for early December. When doing so, they have been telling promoters they will be going to India to tape TNA TV.
An official announcement is expected soon, but the tapings were previously slated to take place between November 29th and December 5th. The original plan was for the company to go to India and tape TV built around Mahabili Sheera as the conquering hero.

Opinionated View- Should be interesting. The question is can Sheera carry that role?

NWA Officials Meet with Spike TV – Was Spike Interested?

National Wrestling Alliance President Bruce Tharpe recently met with Spike TV officials in New York City. Spike officials have stated that there is interest in bringing back pro wrestling, but that nothing is on the table right now. This is what they told Tharpe at his meeting. Spike also noted that they are trying to run new shows that have more appeal to women than pro wrestling. Tharpe is currently looking at other options for television.

Opinionated  View- If I'm Spike NWA isn't even on the list. WWE, TNA, even ROH or GFW I get but the NWA? The outdated company that people only cared about because TNA and New Japan used there titles?

Brock Lesnar Added to Next Week’s Raw

According to, WWE has added a new stop on the Brock Lesnar: Go to Hell tour. Lesnar is now booked for next week’s Raw taping in Boston, MA. Lesnar will face Big Show on Saturday at the WWE Network event in Madison Square Garden. The move is an obvious attempt to answer the show’s falling ratings, which have been in decline and made worse by the return of Monday Night Football. Outside of a Christmas Eve show in 2012, Monday’s show had the lowest viewership for an edition of Raw since 1997.

WWE has confirmed the report, sending out the following…
This October, on WWE Network, Brock Lesnar takes fans on the Go to Hell Tour, including a brand new stop in Boston on Monday Night Raw this Monday, October 5. Then, this Saturday at 8 ET/5 PT, watch the historic special Live from MSG: Lesnar vs. Big Show as The Beast Incarnate returns to Madison Garden for the first time in over a decade to battle The World’s Largest Athlete. On Oct. 19 immediately following Raw, The Beast will step behind the mic and answer questions from The Texas Rattlesnake in a live, no-holds barred interview on a brand-new Stone Cold Podcast. Finally, on Oct. 25 at 8 ET/5PT, the fiercest rivalry in recent memory will continue at Hell in a Cell when Lesnar clashes with The Undertaker in Satan’s Playground!

Opinionated View- Call me crazy but you know why I think Viewership is so low? BECAUSE THIS STUPID COMPANY HAS MADE IT A MISSION TO DEVAULE 99% OF THE FULL TIME ROSTER! WWE sends the message "The Legends are more important than the current guys" all the time so why should people tune in week to week?

ROH TV Preview

The following is scheduled for tonight's 9/30 ROH on Destination America:
* Adam Cole vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
* MOOSE vs. Watanabe vs. Adam Page vs. Will Ferrara
* KUSHIDA vs. Matt Sydal

Opinionated View- Adam Cole is great but even he can't get anything out of Nakamura. I mean Nakamura is the guy John Cena can look at and go "I might only have five moves but that more than this guy." Roderick Strong had a match with this guy and was like "I'm limited but . I try to mix it up a little I mean a throw a few chops, the back breakers have different entry I do the sick kick... This guy only throws knees and he doesn't even do them well."

WWE NXT Preview

The following is scheduled for tonight's 9/30 WWE NXT on the WWE Network:
* Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic 2nd Round Match: NXT Champion Finn Balor & Samoa Joe vs. The Jersey Boys
* Dana Brooke & Emma vs. Peyton Royce & Billie Kay

Hulk Hogan’s Gawker Lawsuit Could Still Be Unsealed

Hulk Hogan may have to see the details of his Gawker lawsuit be made public after all. A report hit over the weekend, per the Associated Press, that the judge in the case had ruled against a request by several media outlets (including the AP) to unseal the lawsuit over interest in the FBI’s involvement in the case. As it turns out, that was an error on the AP’s part; the judge ruled not on the unsealing motion but on another that had been previously filed.
There is a hearing set for Thursday morning (per ABC News) regarding the request from the media to allow access to the FBI records in the case. The records were unsealed specifically for Gawker at their request but were not allowed to be revealed publicly.
At interest is why the FBI got involved and why the court records in a civil court case are being kept as private as these ones are. That has led to a lot of questions as to what may be on the tapes, and what the FBI uncovered in their investigation of the sex tape leak. Of course, the lawsuit did ultimately cause the reveal of Hogan’s racial tirade from the sex tape, which led to his WWE Legends contract being terminated and Hogan being scrubbed off The start of the civil trial is currently set for March 2016.

John Cena segment announced for Raw

WWE has announced that the U.S. Title open challenge will return on tonight's Raw television show.

Update On The Rock’s Status For WrestleMania 32 & Who He May Face

The Rock is not one of the people expected to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32, because he’s reportedly set for a match with Triple H.
The plan in WWE was to have Rock vs HHH and Ronda Rousey vs Stephanie McMahon, or possibly a mixed tag with all four, after Rousey’s appearance at WrestleMania 31. If the UFC wouldn’t let Rousey wrestle, then she would be in the corner of The Rock while Stephanie is in HHH’s corner. Rousey will not be involved at WrestleMania 32 because she’s committed to a film role. The plan, as of now, is still Rock vs HHH.

Opinionated View- FUCK YOU WWE and shut up to any one stupid to defend this bullshit. Its 2015 enough pretending it's still the MNW era.

STAMFORD, Conn., September 28, 2015 – In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Dylan Postl (Hornswoggle) for 30 days effective immediately for his first violation of the company's policy.

Opinionated View- Sorry I can't help myself. I must take this tasteless joke

I guess he misunderstood what growth hormone is used for.

Lucha Underground News: Rey Mysterio Expected to Sign With Lucha Underground, Vampiro’s Role to Change, and More

– The Wrestling Observer has revealed more details on the upcoming next season of Lucha Underground, including the news that Rey Mysterio is expected to sign with Lucha Underground soon. Per the report, the plan is to use Mysterio as the promotion’s top star in season two.
Both sides have been reportedly quiet on this front. Mysterio has not yet officially signed with the promotion, and it’s believed Lucha Underground is saving the announcement as a surprise for the show.
– On top of that, former WWE Tough Enough contestant Martin Casaus is expected to get a bigger push in season two. He worked dark matches last year with former Olympian Jeff Cobb and will likely make his official debut with the promotion.
– For the new season, Vampiro is reportedly being moved away from the announce team and will become the manager of Pentagon Jr.

Opinionated View- Of course this contradicts the budget cutting report. Because even if Mysterio does sign for the lowest fee he would be willing to he's still going to cost. Also its Rey sooner or later he's going to get hurt and miss time. Plus with El Patron, Chavo, Blue Demon last thing LU needs is more old guys. Speaking of old guys I guess I am happy Vampiro won't be announcing but I fear him being manager for Pentagon will only be about Vampiro.

Lucha Underground Cutting Budget For Season 2

The WON reports that Lucha Underground’s just-announced second season will be done on a lower budget. The site reports that the show will begin filming in December for the announced early 2016 premiere date. The site notes that the budget will be cut down from the first season, when each episode cost $400,000. However, it will be done in ways that fans won’t notice the difference.
The show will tape at the same Los Angeles location, and while not much is confirmed at this point there is a believe that there won’t be as many shows as the first season had. The promotion has been talking with Mexican TV networkas and had been in talks with Televisa Channel 5. While it isn’t known whether a deal was reached, if so that would give them more television exposure in Mexico than WWE, CMLL or AAA.

Opinionated View- I can think of plenty of places to cut the budget. Fire people like Cureto, Black Lotus, Old Man Luchardor who are just in dumb backstage BS. Get ready of guys like Chavo and Blue Demon who no doubt draw big paydays. Stop paying the biggest waste of money ever El Patron.

Other places to save money the over produced, pretensions backstage segments. Its not a movie it's not a show like Game of Thrones you don't need to film it like one. You also don't need BS like special effects and having Drago fly and stuff like that.

Judge Denies Full Release of Hogan Sex Tape

Judge Pamela Campbell denied a third party motion from the Associated Press and other media organizations to unseal the contents for viewing of the Hulk Hogan FBI case file including the entire sex tape with Heather Clem. Gawker had sued the FBI for the release of the case file, but Judge Campbell immediately sealed it all.

9/26 ROH Results

The Young Bucks were supposed to wrestle War Machine, but Nick Jackson stayed home with his pregnant wife. The Addiction were scheduled to face Briscoes, but Christopher Daniels said Frankie Kazarian got hurt the night before. They changed the card up a bit with no Briscoes at all, which was a disappointment.

3. Caprice Coleman beat Pepper Parks by submission.
4. Roderick Strong pinned Watanabe.

Update on Plan for Legends Appearing on Raw Before Hell in a Cell (POSSIBLE SPOILERS) has a report on the plan for the upcoming WWE Legends who will be appearing on the October 19 edition of Raw, which will be the last Raw before this year’s Hell in a Cell event. Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ric Flair, and Shawn Michaels will all be appearing at the event, along with Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. In addition, Lesnar will be appearing on Stone Cold’s live podcast on the WWE Network on the same night.
Per, the plan is for Austin, Michaels, and Flair to appear on Raw in an in-ring segment where they will offer their thoughts and predictions on the upcoming Lesnar/Undertaker Hell in a Cell match. It will be similar to the segment HBK, Flair, and Hulk Hogan did ahead of Night of Champions last year.

Opinionated View- Oh I get it since Brock and Taker can't be bothered to show up before than they figure cramming a bunch of legends on a show will make up for another shit build. Well it doesn't.

Bobby Lashley Returning to Bellator MMA

Current TNA star Bobby Lashley will make his fight return at Bellator 145 on 11/6 in St. Louis, Missouri facing James Thompson in a rematch. Lashley (13-2) vs. Thompson (20-14) had been scheduled twice this year with both being forced to pull out due to injury. Thompson defeated Lashley back in 2012 in a fight with Super Fight League.

Opinionated View- I'm disappointed in this fight. Yeah Thompson has that win but I feel like Lashley should be fighting tougher comp. Bellator has given him pretty of build up wins and Thompson feels like another one. Lets be honestly the window for Lashley isn't very big he's already up there in age he needs to make a run at a title sooner rather than later.

Tammy Sytch Released From Jail

WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch was released from jail late Friday (Sept. 25) afternoon on a bail bond. She was arrested earlier this week on a bench warrant after failing to appear for three court hearings for her May DUI charge in Pennsylvania.

Opinionated View- Yesterday someone posted on this page "Is there a way we can help pay her bail?" I really hope no fans were stupid enough to that. Because Sytch is a fuck up an she will just keep fucking up.

As noted, her next court date in the DUI case is December 7th. She also has a court date set for a preliminary hearing on two other DUI arrests on October 7th. She faces charges of DUI, driving without a license, failure to stay in her lane of traffic, and careless driving in that case.

Tammy Sytch Arrested After Missing Hearings

According to, Tammy Sytch was arrested yesterday and is currently incarcerated at The Carbon County Correctional Facility in Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania. She was arrested and taken into custody following a bench warrant that was issued on September 3rd. Sytch had missed three hearings in regards to her May 30th arrest in Mahoning Township, PA. During that arrest, Sytch was pulled over after driving erratically in a Wal-Mart parking lot; this lead to charges of driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license and also careless driving.
Sytch is scheduled to go before a judge at 1:15PM ET today, and the feeling is that she may be held in custody until her trial date on December 7th. Sytch also has a trial date on October 7th in Palmerton, PA (where she currently resides) for a preliminary hearing in regard to two other DUI-related arrests that took place June 1st and 20th. She faces charges of DUI, driving without a license, failure to stay in her lane of traffic, and careless driving.
You can check out her mug shot here.

Opinionated View- For those that wonder why I don't report on Sytch more how many ways can I tell about a dumpster fire that won't go out.

ROH CEO Upset Over Wrestlers Court

At the Ring of Honor TV tapings on September 19, a “wrestler’s court” was reportedly held. It’s something that WWE used to do to for talents who are accused of doing something wrong. If they are found guilty then they are usually punished by paying for everyone’s bar tabs or something similar. The ROH case involved referee Gino Colucci. BJ Whitmer was the “judge” and Michael Elgin was the “defense”. Colucci was “cleared of the charges”.
When CEO Joe Koff learned about the wrestler’s court, he wasn’t happy. He sent a statement to talent telling them not to do it again, as they should be focusing on that night’s performances.

Opinionated View- I would also note TNA has used wrestlers court at least once. I can kind of see both sides. With some of the stories you have heard over the years it seems like it was a chance for guys like Undertaker to try and convince everyone what a big man he is. I know the TNA was more of skit meant to rib Kip James who was around at the time. So I wonder what this one was. If was a time to try and bully Cloucci I could get the CEO stepping in. If it was more of a mocking lets make fun of him bust chops he shouldn't make it an issues.

But this is also part of the problem with companies like Sinclair buying wrestling companies. They are cooperate so they have rules. But wrestling has stuff like this. Now to be fair you get "Court" in places like Baseball or Football to.

Lucha Underground Parts Ways With Shawn Hernandez

Lucha Underground sent out the following:
Los Angeles, CA (September 25, 2015) – Lucha Underground, the Lucha Libre wrestling franchise from United Artists Media Group and FactoryMade Ventures, has released Shawn Hernandez from his contract and they have amicably parted ways.
"Lucha Underground" is produced by United Artists Media Group in association with FactoryMade Ventures for El Rey Network. Executive producers are Mark Burnett, Eric Van Wagenen (also showrunner) and Brian Edwards of United Artists Media Group; Dorian Roldán from Lucha Libre AAA; Alejandro Garcia and Antonio Cué Sánchez-Navarro; El Rey Network co-founder Robert Rodriguez; and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa. The series airs on El Rey Network and is distributed internationally by United Artists Media Group.

Opinionated View- Oh fuck you Lucha Underground. You had to ass holes and not work with TNA and fuck up BDC screwing things up for Kenny King, MVP, and even the Wolves. And fuck you Hernandez since you presented yourself as a free agaent to TNA and didn't explain the clause about not appearing until the season was over.

9/24 WWE Smackdown Report

The show opens with highlights from Night of Champions, namely Seth Rollins defending his titles back to back, retaining the World Heavyweight Championship against Sting, and Sheamus attempting to cash in on Money in the Bank before the demon Kane makes his return! After this, we get highlights from Raw on Monday, focusing on the situation between Kane and Rollins.
From there we cut to the arena in Corpus Christi, where Eden Stiles welcomes back Director of Operations, Kane! Kane comes to the ring, and talks about returning. He was of two minds in regards to returning: he didn't want to "bring the team down," but this was the perfect time to return because "the WWE is on FIRE" and who better to deal with the heat than someone of his administrative experience. He goes on to announce that Kevin Owens and Rusev will team up to face Ryback and Dolph Ziggler, and Luke Harper will face Roman Reigns, with Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, and Braun Strowman barred from ringside. He starts to make another announcement when Seth Rollins comes out, interrupting him.
Kane introduces the crowd to former United States Champion "and yet, still World Heavyweight Champion" Seth Rollins, who tells Kane to cut the crap, that no one is falling for Kane's tricks, that underneath the facade he is the demon Kane. Kane tells Rollins he looks angry, and that he had extensive training in conflict resolution so Rollins should come on down and they can engaged in a "civilized, healthy, and hopefully productive dialogue." Rollins refuses, bringing up what happened to him at Night of Champions. Kane acknowledges Sheamus nearly cashing in his Money in the Bank title shot. Rollins asks what about Monday night, and Kane thinks he was doing Rollins a favor by giving him his rematch for the United States title. Rollins shouts that he is talking about after, when Kane tried to drag him into Hell. Kane asks Rollins who he sees talking to him, a demon that could inflict pain on him until he screams in agony…or a man in a suit, his friend, the one that helped him win the World Heavyweight Championship?
Rollins wants to know why Kane is doing this; he didn't break Kane's leg, that was Brock Lesnar, they talked about this on Monday. Kane knows this, but reminds Seth of the time he called him a "seven foot tall piece of crap," realizing he must have just been trying to motivate him. Seth claims that Kane is not fit to be Director of Operations, and shouldn't be around him. As a colleague, as a friend, Rollins tells Kane that he needs help. Kane says he'll take that under advisement. Kane finishes the announcement he was about to make when Seth interrupted: in the main event, Seth Rollins will take on a man he knows very well, the "Lunatic Fringe" Dean Ambrose! Seth yells "What is wrong with you!?" before storming off to the back as Kane's music plays. We cut to Rich Brennan, Booker T, and Jerry Lawler at ringside as they run down the announcements Kane made and debate on whether Kane is playing mind games or actually suffering split personality disorder.
Roman Reigns makes his way through the crowd to the ring, getting ready for his match against Luke Harper as we go to commercial break.
-Commercia Break-
We come back from commercial as Rich talks about WWE's social media dominance, before Luke Harper makes his way to the ring. We go back to this past Monday where a fight between Roman and Bray Wyatt led to chaos that brought out Randy Orton, before Luke gets to the ring to start the match.
Roman Regins vs. Luke Harper
Luke and Roman come to blows early on in the match, a brawl that quickly spills outside. Roman sends Harper into the barricade and dropkicks him before tossing him back into the ring to continue the assault. He whips him against the ropes, but Luke manages to get a punch in and stops Roman from dropping him with a Samoan Drop. Roman turns the tide, hitting Luke hard in the corner as the crowd counts to ten. Roman whips Harper into the opposite corner, but Harper gets a boot to the face of Reigns. They battle in the corner until Reigns sends him outside over the rope. The fight spills back outside, with Harper trying to get back in the ring. Roman stops him, but it turns out to be a ruse as Harper gets a boot to the face of Roman again. He tosses him into the ring and lands a senton over the rope from the outside. Roman gets up, but Luke gives him a kick to the face before delivering a powerbomb for a nearfall. Luke waits for Roman to get up, but is stopped by a Superman Punch and a spear by Roman for the win!
Winner via pinfall: Roman Reigns
Roman celebrates his victory as we get a replay of the Superman Punch and spear that put Luke Harper away tonight. We see New Day in the back as Rich lets us know about a six man tag between them and Neville and the Lucha Dragons. New Day has some fun with a stagehand as we go to commercial.
-Commercia Break-
Back from commercial, New Day is already in the ring as Kofi cuts a promo about their Tag Team title match on October 3, promising to get rid of the Dudley Boyz once and for all. Big E says that means goodbye, D'Von…goodbye, "Booty Ray"…don't let the door hit ya, where the New Day split ya! Xavier says that after that's over, they can continue to make WWE great and save the tables. They start a "Save the Tables" chant until Neville's music cuts them off. He and the Lucha Dragons make their entrance as we get ready for this six man tag match!
The New Day vs. Neville & The Lucha Dragons
Neville and Kofi start things off with a fast paced exchanged, and the Dragons come into the ring to take turns on offense, bringing the entire New Day to the outside as we go to commercial.
-Commercia Break-
Coming back from commercial, Big E and Kalisto are in the ring and Kalisto kicks Big E in the knee. Big E quickly turns the tables, using his power to bring Kalisto to the New Day's corner. Big E and Kofi take turns beating up Kalisto as Xavier plays a tune on his trombone at ringside. Kofi takes Kalisto to the corner again, but Kalisto gets Kofi to the outside before tagging in Sin Cara, who gets in a flurry of offense including a springboard shoulder block and moonsault. Big E tries to get involved, but is stopped by Neville before Sin Cara brings Kofi to the outside, before all three man launch off the rope to hit New Day on the outside! Xavier feigns an eye issue as Sin Cara is slowed down by Kofi just long enough for Woods to hit a running knee for the win!
Winners via pinfall: The New Day
New Day celebrate on the announce table, dancing as Xavier plays their theme on the trombone. We are reminded that Dean Ambrose faces Seth Rollins tonight before going to commercial.
-Commercia Break-
Coming back from commercial, Cesaro makes his way to the ring as we watch clips from his match against Big Show on Monday, including the suplex into the ring by Cesaro before being knocked out. Bo Dallas makes his way out, mic in hand as he starts to speak. He says that he knows Cesaro's pain. He survived Suplex City, but Cesaro can't even get off Big Show Boulevard. Bo has the roadmap to life, and if Cesaro wants to achieve all his goals, all he has to do is BOlieve!
Cesaro vs. Bo Dallas
They lock up to start the match, back and forth until Cesaro gets the upper hand. He rolls Bo up for a nearfall, before rolling him around and then pinning again for a nearfall. Bo battles back for just a moment before running into a clothesline by Cesaro, who whips him into the corner. Bo blocks him, getting a shot in before whipping him into the ropes…only to be met with a European uppercut! Bo falls out of the ring, but surprises Cesaro on the outside before bringing him back in and attacking him with the ring apron. Bo sinks in a sleeper hold, but Cesaro powers out. Bo continues the attack, focusing on Cesaro's injured back and hitting a back suplex for a nearfall. Bo quickly gets in a chinlock, trying his best to keep Cesaro down. Cesaro eventually powers out again, getting him in a unique package hold for the win!
Winner via pinfall: Cesaro
Bo Dallas is none too pleased at ringside as Cesaro celebrates with the crowd. We see photos from the Divas title match at Night of Champions, as Charlotte defeated Nikki for the belt before we go to Charlotte's celebration on Monday. Up next, we'll hear from the new Divas Champion!
-Commercia Break-
Back from commercial, Charlotte and Becky Lynch make their way to the ring as Becky gets Charlotte a mic. Charlotte talks about Night of Champions being a dream scenario for her to finally become Divas Champion, and she and Becky thank the WWE Universe for believing in the Divas Revolution. She's interrupted by Paige's music, as the former PCB teammate makes her way out with a mic. She's not a team player, and not used to apologizing for her actions, but she realizes she didn't need to dump on her friends on Monday. Paige claims she started the Divas Revolution, and deserves some recognition. The three of them start arguing until Natalya's music hits, bringing the lone member of the Hart Dynasty out to the ring.
Paige says this has nothing to do with a "crazy cat lady." Natalya says she couldn't be prouder of the Divas division, and that the last time she was excited for the Divas was when Paige won the Divas title. She was one of the first to congratulate her, because she deserved it. She says Paige is better than all this bickering, and Paige agrees…in fact, she is better than Natalya, who is "desperately clinging on to the youthful Divas to feel relevant again." She slaps Natalya and leaves the ring as her music plays.
Commentary brings up the main event as Dean Ambrose takes on Seth Rollins, and the tag match as Ryback and Dolph Ziggler take on Kevin Owens and Rusev. That match is up next!
-Commercia Break-
We come back from commercial for the WWE Smack of the Night, highlight pictures of the Intercontinental Championship match at Night of Champions between Ryback and Kevin Owens, with Owens winning the title after raking Ryback's eyes during a Shell Shock attempt. Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring, followed by Rusev. Commentary discuss what happened at Night of Champions as Dolph Ziggler and Ryback make their way to the ring.
Ryback & Dolph Ziggler vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens & Rusev
Ryback and Owens start, but Owens tags himself out to Rusev, who immediately wants Dolph Ziggler. They lock up and Rusev sends Dolph to the corner, yelling "I BEAT YOU" as he continues the attack. Dolph gets a small comeback, but is distracted by Owens and beaten back down by Rusev, who tags Owens in now. Owens gets some hard hits in before tagging Rusev in, and Rusev gets some hard right hands in on Dolph. He continues by beating down Dolph on the ropes, as the crowd chants "We Want Lana." Rusev goes for another slam, but is met with a DDT by Dolph as we go to commercial.
-Commercia Break-
Back from commercial, Owens is on top of Dolph before hitting a senton on Dolph, yelling "THAT'S WHY I'M THE CHAMP" and bringing him to the corner. Owens continues to punish Ziggler and starts taunting Ryback before going for the cover on Ziggler for a nearfall. He tags in Rusev, who goes right back to work on Dolph, bringing him down hard. He taunts Ziggler to tag his partner, but slams down on top of him. He goes for the cover and gets another nearfall, starting to look a little frustrated as he bodyslams the Showoff onto the canvas. He tags in Owens, who gives Dolph a boot on the ground and drops him with a bodyslam of his own. He offers Rusev a turn to "slam him good" as he tags him in, but Ziggler catches him off guard and gets a bodyslam of his own in! Rusev tags in Owens, who tries to stop Ziggler.
Ziggler gets a scoop slam on Owens and wills himself to the corner, tagging in Ryback as Owens tags in Rusev! Rusev tries to get in a kick, but is blocked by Ryback who drops him. Crowd chants "FEED ME MORE" as Ryback looks for the Meat Hook, but is distracted by Owens and kicked in the face by Rusev. Owens grabs his title and makes his way up the ramp, indicating he's done for the night. Rusev is infuriated, leading to being kicked by Ziggler and Shell Shocked by Ryback for the win!
Winners via pinfall: Ryback & Dolph Ziggler
Kevin mockingly applauds Ryback on the stage as we see a replay of Ziggler's superkick followed by the Shell Shock on Rusev. We're reminded once again of the main event, Dean Ambrose against Seth Rollins, and then a quick chat about the Madison Square Garden event on October 3 before taking us to a highlight video of the early feud between Big Show and Brock Lesnar, featuring Big Show's message to Brock Lesnar ahead of their match. Commentary runs down the matches for the MSG special, including the Tag Team title match and main event of Big Show and Brock Lesnar. We then go backstage, where Renee Young interviews the Dudley Boyz. Bubba Ray says the New Day act like they care about the WWE Universe, but do NOT act like champions. This Saturday, the Dudley Boyz look to become TEN time Tag Team Champions. Primetime Players appear to wish the Dudleyz the best of luck, but after October 3 it's "Prime Time, baby."
We cut to JoJo interviewing Seth Rollins about Kane, whom Rollins claims is a "living, breathing demon" and that they all need to talk about getting Kane some serious help. He is not worried about facing Dean Ambrose, promising he's going to destroy him before walking off. With that we go to the ring, where Dean Ambrose is making his entrance as we go to commercial.
-Commercia Break-
Back from commercial, Seth Rollins is now making his way to the ring looking confident as ever.
Non-title Match
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose
They lock up, and Seth ends up leaving the ring pretty quick to get a breather. He comes back in, and they lock up again with Dean getting the upper hand, even stomping the hand of Rollins. Dean takes him down into a headlock, but Rollins comes back up and gets Dean to the corner before breaking things up. He whips him into another corner and drops some hard boots into Ambrose, until Ambrose catches him and begins a comeback as we go to commercial.
-Commercia Break-
Back from commercial, Rollins slams Ambrose and goes for the cover for a nearfall. We see that during the break, things turned around for Rollins as he now is in control of this match. He whips Ambrose into the ring, but Ambrose wisely gets out of Seth's way sending the World champ out the ring. Ambrose looks to take a dive to Rollins, but Seth stops him in his tracks before climbing up to the top, dropping Dean with a kick to the temple for another nearfall. Rollins lays into Ambrose with some hard chops, taunting him in the corner as he goes. Dean turns things around, laying into Rollins with some chops of his own before following with an attempted DDT off the top rope, but Seth blocks and kicks Dean in the jaw for another nearfall! Seth is not happy with the ref as Dean gets to his feet. Seth charges at him with a forearm in the corner, followed with another, but Dean follows behind, eventually hitting Rollins with a clothesline.
The match goes back and forth now, with both guys trading blows until Dean gets a second wind of offense on Rollins. He charges into Rollins with an elbow in the corner, then brings him up to the top rope for a suplex off the top! He goes for the cover, but Rollins kicks out at two. Ambrose goes back up to the top, but Rollins catches him off guard. The match goes back and forth again, with a series of roll ups for nearfalls by both guys. Dean sends Rollins out of the ring, then brings him in and gets a fisherman suplex on Rollins for another nearfall. Dean looks to finish the job with a Dirty Deeds, but Seth gets him with an enziguri! Both men trade blows again, until Rollins gets Dean with a Slingblade! He goes for a Pedigree but Dean blocks it. Dean whips him into the corner, but in the confusion involving the ref gets caught in a powerbomb into the turnbuckle. As Rollins gets ready for the next thing, Kane's pyro goes off! Rollins is looking around for Kane, being distracted just long enough for Dean Ambrose to roll Seth up for the win!
Winner via pinfall: Dean Ambrose
We cut backstage to see that Kane is watching the monitor with a smile on his face, as Seth grabs a mic to call Kane out. He asks Kane, "Do you know who I am? Do you know what I'm capable of?" and claims everyone he's faced has paid the ultimate price, promising Kane will meet the same fate. He celebrates in the ring with his title, Kane still watching on from the back as the show comes to a close.

Changes Coming to Smackdown?

The belief in WWE is that “interesting changes” will happen to Smackdown when the show moves to USA in the beginning of 2016. WWE is going to debut a new look and they reportedly have some new ideas for the show. It’s also believed that while Smackdown will be considered a top priority for a month or two, it will eventually return to its normal format.

Opinionated View- Well this means one of two things. First they turn Smackdown into another Raw which is the last damn thing we need. Or it will be one of those times Smackdown gets really good and exciting only for it to revert back to the after thought.

Request Filed To Have Hulk Hogan’s Gawker Lawsuit Unsealed

Hulk Hogan’s attempts to keep his lawsuit against Gawker Media over his leaked sex tape quiet may well prove fruitless. The Tampa Bay Tribune reports that several media outlets — including the Associated Press — have asked the judge in the lawsuit to unseal records in the case.
A big part of the reason for the request is the fact that the FBI investigated the leak, and after Gawker filed a public records request the information was released to Gawker but sealed otherwise. The high level of secrecy around the private, civil lawsuit has lead to increased media interest over why they’re being so private.
Hogan was released from WWE after part of a deposition was leaked to the Enquirer, which included a transcript of the Hall of Famer going on a racially-charged rant. Hogan has blamed Gawker for the leak, while the media outlet has denied such. Hogan sued Gawker for $100 million over their publishing of a one-minute excerpt of the tape with commentary about it, claiming invasion of privacy. His lawyers have been trying hard to keep anything related to the tape from being released since.
The lawsuit trial will begin in March of next year.

Enzo Amore says that no man has done more for our careers than Dusty Rhodes and its an honor and a privelige to be competing in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. As for our opponents next week, we've bent elbows with them a few times and there is nothing "foogazie" about that title around your waist, Finn Balor and there ain't nothing "SAWFT" about you, Samoa Joe, but as for Big Cass, there ain't nothing "SAWFT" about that size 16 boot, neither and the "Michael Jordan of Jaragon", my jaw is so hard, I can blow a bubble with an hour later. Winners focus on winning, losers focus on wins and real recoginzes real.
Cass says that we have all the respect in the world for Joe and Balor, but next week, respect goes out the window, along with your chances of winning this tournament, because you two are going home and me & Enzo are moving on to win the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, how you doin'?
We go to Balor & Joe. Balor says that next week, we face Enzo & Cass. Now, you guys are my friends, but friendship gets pushed aside. This is the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and Dusty Rhodes was my mentor.
Joe says that friends or not, me & Finn are here for a singular purpose and that's winning it all. Ain't that right, champ? Joe slaps the belt, which surprises Balor. Joe says that we know you two are the realest guys in the room, but you're staring at the two toughest dogs on the block and trust me gentlemen, you can't teach that.
