Impact Wrestling TV Taping in Birmingham, England spoilers

TNA Impact Wrestling Taping
This may have been a continuation of the taping for March 1 Impact.
Matt Hardy cut a promo to open. He said he’s beaten EC3 so many times it’s now boring. He’ll never get a shot at Hardy again. Hardy Introduced Rockstar Spud (to his hometown). Spud pointed out that one year ago EC3 left him battered and bloodied with his head shaved. Now the public are jumping on the latest bandwagon by supporting EC3. He took some good old fashioned revenge, and took what EC3 craved.

EC3 eventually interrupted with a run in and beat Tyrus, then Hardy. Spud tried to attack, but he ended up getting away. EC3 challenged Spud to a “fight.” There was no ref, no rules…
Following a taping for Xplosion (see below), Gail Kim delivered a promo. She said the Knockouts division is all about wrestling. Kim said Maria is all talk and nobody wants that, they want to see her fight. Maria came out to talk. She’s proud of lesson she taught Gail. She won’t cross the line and fight as she’s not like Gail. She said Gail wants to be just like her. Maria said Gail says she doesn’t want to be a celebrity, yet married a celebrity chef. Maria loves being a celebrity, she was on Celebrity Apprentice and posed for Playboy. Maria said she won’t fight because she is a lady. Gail chased after her, only to be attacked by Jade.

1. EC3 beat Rockstar Spud in a Birmingham street fight. The match went about ten minutes until EC3 put spud through a table and choked him out. A bunch of refs (and agent Simon Diamond) came out to break it up.

Xplosion Taping
1. Jessie Godderz beat Tigre Uno. Godderz won by submission with a Boston crab in roughly six minutes.
Impact opened with Dixie Carter in the ring with the TNA roster outside ring. They were there to celebrate Kurt Angle. Dixie hoped this day would never come, and can’t thank Angle enough for everything he’s done. Drew Galloway got in the ring and said it was an honor to be picked to wrestle him on his farewell tour. Galloway asked Angle please don’t go, but then said thank you so much.
Angle said he came to TNA to find himself, and he’s a better person for having being there. Lashley interrupted. It’s a bad day, but a great experience, an amazing thing for him, so thank you. However, Lashley said he can see as he looks at Angle’s eyes that Kurt is just not ready to wrestle him…
1. Eric Young beat Bram, Will Ospreay, Jimmy Havoc, and Big Damo in a King of The Mountain Match. Osprey was first to qualify with a crucifix on Havoc. Young qualified with a piledriver on the steps to Havoc. Bram was next to qualify. Young won a pretty short match, which was a shame this was once the biggest match on TNA’s biggest pay-per-view…
Mike “The Miracle” Bennett cut a promo demanding to be named number one contender. Bennett was interrupted by Drew Galloway. They went back and forth until Galloway finally loses his rag and took out Bennett…
2. Gail Kim beat Jade to retain the TNA Knockouts Title. Kim won a good match with a backwards cross body off the ropes. Jake countered the move, but it was rolled over again by Kim for the win…
3. James Storm and Bobby Roode beat The Wolves to win the TNA Tag Titles. It appeared as though Davey Richards was injured. He took an awkward bump from Storm and then immediately rolled out of the ring with referee Earl Hebner making the X sign with his arms. He was noticeable talking to the three remaining guys in the ring afterwards…
Grado rushed the ring for a promo, saying his firing was fishy. Eli Drake came out and said he’s pathetic begging for his job back…
4. Lashley defeated Kurt Angle. The match will billed as Angle’s last match and it was a good one with lots of back and forth. Angle had the ankle lock on Lashley about three or four times, but eventually Lashley won with a spear, then attacked Angle again after the match. This brought out Drew Galloway, whom was also beat down by Lashley. Eddie Edwards was out next and he was also beaten down. Finally EC3 came out, and Lashley walked off…
Angle delivered his farewell speech. He said he is very grateful and added that he will see us again one day…
One Night Only Taping
They finished the night with a 16-man gauntlet match taped for a One Night Only pay-per-view. For some reason, they match only had 13 entrants.
1. Drew Galloway won a gauntlet match. The order of entry was Bennett, Mandrews, Tigre Uno, Jade, Will Osprey, Bram, Eric Young, Eddie Edwards, Drew Galloway, Matt Hardy, Tyrus, Rockstar Spud, Grado.
Order of elimination:
Mandrews by Bennett
Jade by Maria
Tigre uno by Bram
Osprey by Young
Young and Bram by Edwards
Edwards by Hardy
Tyrus by Grado
Spud by Galloway
Hardy by Grado
Grado by Bennett
Bennett by Drew Galloway
Xplosion Taping
1. Velvet Sky and Madison Rayne beat Marti Bell and Rebel. Velvet picked up the win after a stunner. This match was taped during the Impact taping.

Davey Richards injured at the TNA Impact Wrestling taping

Davey Richards was injured during Sunday’s TNA Impact Wrestling television taping in Birmingham, England. TNA announced via Twitter that Richards suffered a meniscus tear and will undergo an MRI.


Tonight in Birmingham on Tour @RichardsWesley injured. Initial diagnosis: "meniscus issue." An MRI is scheduled
Davey Richards
I'm so sorry to @IMPACTWRESTLING UK fans tonight. You deserved better than what I gave. I'll be back and give you the match you deserve.
Opinionated View- You never want to see anyone hurt especially someone like Davey who tears the house down every time out. If there is any good news here the injury happened after a lot of TV had been tapped so he could maybe be back for the next TV taping.

News and Notes From TNA UK Tour

Also in regards to Reby Sky, she has officially signed a contract with TNA.

– Mark Andrews was reportedly a bit dinged up after getting a shot to the head during his tag team match. There was concern he might have been hurt, but he later posted on Twitter that he’s doing OK. You can check out Andrews’ tweet on the subject below.

Mark Andrews

Thanks for the tweets, guys. I'm okay just a little knock to the head. Thanks to everyone who came out tonight in Wembley
Rafael Morfi, who previously worked as a live touring executive for the WWE before going to TNA, reporteldy worked as the tour manager for TNA’s tour of the UK this month.

Awesome Kong Reportedly Caused Marks on Reby Sky’s Neck

PWInsider has more details on the physical confrontation that took place between Reby Sky and Awesome Kong during TNA’s UK tour. As previously reported, TNA issued a statement, and Kong was sent home from the tour.

Per the report, the confrontation between the two was physical, and Kong left visible marks around Reby Sky’s throat and the back of her neck that could be seen if she lifted her hair.

Kurt Angle Reportedly Suffers Concussion During First Night of TNA’s UK Tour

Angle reportedly suffered an injury during the first match on the first night of TNA’s current tour of the UK. Kurt Angle reportedly looked like he was in “bad shape” following his match with Drew Galloway in Manchester after the first night of the TNA UK tour, which is also Angle’s farewell tour with the promotion. According to a report by PWINsider, Angle suffered a concussion during the Galloway match.

Angle was said to have started feeling better about 35 minutes after the match. He was then checked and cleared by a doctor, and Angle was allowed to take part in another match against Bobby Roode last night. He is still currently set to finish out the tour and face Bobby Lashley tonight in Birmingham. The report does not mention how serious Angle’s concussion was, but hopefully he is doing OK.

Opinionated View- Well if he is cleared he's cleared but you do worry. I have to wonder if this is clickbait or stretching the truth. And instead Kurt or the company was just worried he had a concussion.

Lucha Underground Renewed For Season Three

Lucha Underground will be back for a third season. Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that the third season renewal was announced backstage at a meeting before the final taping for season two. The producers for the show informed the cast that El Rey has greenlit a new season.

The cast was also told that the show will be releasing on iTunes soon, making it available to those without El Rey.

Opinoinated View- Let me know when they start doing good shows without the bullshit crap storyline stuff. And BTW I understand they are still doing "Magic" and murder storylines.

WWE Reportedly Upset With Rock’s Raw Segment

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via ), WWE was not happy with the group of fans that were dressed as Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, The Rock and Undertaker at Monday’s Raw. During the show, the man dressed as Savage was doing various Macho Man mannerisms, which is why fans were chanting “Randy Savage” during the show. The fans were moved, due to the fact that they were visible on TV.

When The Rock came out for his promo segment, the crowd was again chanting for the fans dressed as wrestlers. Rock went off script and spoke with the fans during his segment, which reportedly caused some people backstage to “freak out.” Officials were reportedly upset because the fans had distracted the crowd, and were then getting rewarded with TV time. Word is that if anyone other than Rock (or John Cena) had done something similar, they would have been fired. It is said that Rock can basically do anything he wants.

Opinionated View- Well maybe if you booked a better show the fans would be focused on what you are doing in the ring instead of fans in the stand. Plus the WWE does all it can to drive home the point "you should only care about legends."

3/1 Impact Wrestling Spoilers

As they took down the cage for the next taping, Dixie Carter came out and thanked the fans for all the fantastic support. The crowd chanted “Thank You, Dixie.” She said she had a surprise and introduced Billy Corgan. He asked if the crowd was having a good time. One guy near the ramp was jumping up and down like this was the greatest moment of his life…

1. The Wolves defeated Mandrews and Will Ospreay to retain the TNA Tag Titles. Mandrews made his skateboard entrance with will Osprey, a great reaction for the Cardiff boy. The Wolves made their entrance with the tag titles. They were wearing British inspired paint on the chest. A great back and for from all four men with some excellent spots. The action slowed down with The Wolves on offense with quick tags isolating Ospreay. Mandrews got the hot tag and came in with a huracanrana, but something went wrong and he laid motionless on the mat for a good 20 seconds. The ref held up the X sign. Mandrews tried to get to his feet but was unsteady and just managed to tag in Ospreay. After some back and forth, The Wolves won the match via pin fall. After the match, the medical team came rushing out for Mandrews (why they didn’t come out before I don’t know and, no, it didn’t look like a worked injury as you could see the wrestlers talking and improvising spots). The Wolves rushed over to check on Mandrews and helped him up and took him to the back. This had the potential to be a great match, but the injury derailed it somewhat…

2. Abyss (Crazzy Steve, Goth Girl) beat Jimmy Havoc in a Monster’s Ball match. Both men brawled early, standard Monster Ball style. Abyss introduced the cheese grater early but Havoc took it and raked quite hard against Abyss’s, um, little Joseph Park. Jimmy climbed to the top rope, but crazy Steve distracted him and Abyss pushed him off the top rope through the table. Abyss introduced Janice, who, of course, missed when he tried to use it and went through a table. Jimmy introduced a barbed wire board into the match. He struck Abyss a couple of times across the head with a kendo stick and went for the killer blow, but Abyss picked him up and hit a Black Hole Slam on Havoc through the barbed wire board. With Marilyn Manson playing, they stood over Jimmy. After the match local boy Havoc got a great reaction. A fun Monster’s Ball with semi dangerous but safe stunts…

Josh Matthews was introduced as he was doing commentary backstage. He kissed up to the fans and said that London was louder than Manchester at the tapings last night…
3. Mike Bennett (w/Maria) defeated Drew Galloway. Maria came out and told us that the UK is broken but she believes in miracles. With that Mike Bennett came out to little reaction. On the flip side, Drew Galloway made his entrance to a huge reaction. Bennett tried to run away but Galloway caught him and stomped him in the corner. Maria tried and failed to distract drew but he hit a big boot to Bennett. The action spilled to the outside where some fans held Bennett open out wide for Drew to chop him.

Eventually, Bennett gained the advantage but got thrown into the ring post by the man from Scotland. The action spilled back into the ring and Bennett gained control. The match slowed down with Bennett keeping Drew on the mat. Drew eventually came back with head butts and a flying clothesline from the top rope. Late in the match, Galloway stomped in the corner and hit a big drop kick. Galloway applied a submission but Maria put Bennett’s foot on the rope. Bennett snuck up behind Galloway and rolled him up for a three count…..

Earl Hebner was introduced and asked his thoughts on the fans in London. He said they were great and then walked back up the ramp….ok…..

4. Eric Young defeated Damo O’Connor to retain the King of the Mountain Title. Young had an open challenge for the King of the Mountain Title. Young won via piledriver…

5. Kurt Angle beat Bobby Roode. Roode made his entrance alone. Angle came out to the biggest pop of the night. He gestured to the whole crowd, and the match was on. Both men felt each other out to begin with with a cagey start. Angle got the better of the early exchanges. The crowd chanted “We love you, Angle, we do.” Roode was kept on the mat in the early going of the match but Roode came back a knee to the mid section. It was Angle’s turn to be kept on the mat. Angle got to his feet and both men charged at each other and hit a double clothesline. Angle got to his feet first but Roode came back with a spinebuster.

Roode climbed to the top but missed with his attempt. Angle his three back suplexes in a row for a great reaction. Angle applied the ankle lock, but Roode escaped and threw Kurt shoulder first into the ring post. Roode applied a crossface, which Angle reversed into an ankle lock but Roode reversed as well back into the crossface. After breaking the hold, Angle charged at Roode, only to be put back into a crossface. Angle broke the hold and hit an Olympic slam on Roode for a close two count. Late in the match Angle locked in the ankle lock, but this time laid it in fully and got the submission victory….

After the match, both men hugged mid ring. Roode made a beautiful speech and Angle cried. The crowd chanted “thank you, Angle.” James Storm came down the ramp and got in the ring. He said all he wants to say is thank you to a TNA legend. He said to him his friendship is priceless. Beer Money opened beers and Kurt said no, so they pulled some milk out. Funny. Kurt poured the milk with most of it going all over him.

The Wolves came out to join in the celebration. They said some nice things about Angle. They also built up the match for The Wolves against Beer Money which will be tapped at the tapings on Sunday. I don’t know when the show will end as far as television is concerned, but this was a beautiful, genuine moment that Kurt was obviously touched by….

TNA TV taping in London (spoilers): 2/23

Jeremy Borash came out to a good ovation and high fives the fans at ringside. He geared up the crowd well. He announced that EC3 would get his rematch tonight, and they showed a video of EC3 talking from home. He said he realizes that sometimes he’s been a piece of shit. He said he’s done all that because he’s addicted to wrestling. I’m guessing this is the video that will air this week on Impact. The crowd got restless during it and started woooo’ing which was a shame as it was a good promo.
1. James Storm and Bobby Roode beat Eric Young and Bram in a cage match. Storm came down on a motorized beer cart (nice). The action started outside the ring outside the cage and continued like that for a good five minutes. Eventually with Storm selling a Bram DDT on the outside, Bram and Young had Roode alone in the cage with the door shut. There were some nice near falls during the match before Beer Money got the victory. Despite some sloppy spots, lots of crowd pleasing moments and got the tapings off to a good start…
EC3 came out next to a mixed reaction, but was certainly playing a babyface by high-fiving the fans at ringside. He sat on the ring steps with a microphone. He said what better place to fight than in London. He said the steel structure separates the man from the boys. He took some fun verbal shots at Reby before promoting the title match later tonight. He stood mid-ring and called out Rockstar Spud, who came out wearing an awesome multicolored suit.
Once in the ring EC3 talked about their match last year and reminded him that he told him he had the biggest heart in the world. He offered Spud his hand. With the crowd cheering, Spud accepted. Spud said he did what he did last week because it’s the right thing. He said Matt Hardy is rotten to the core and he had the nerve to tell him what to do. He screamed that no one tells him what to do. He was infuriated by Hardy.
Matt Hardy screamed that the ring and the arena is his. The crowd were trying to be smart arses by chanting “We Want Jeff” so I couldn’t hear most of his promo. He concluded by telling EC3 that he will beat him tonight. Great stuff from all three men and it turned the crowd completley in favor of EC3…
2. Trevor Lee (w/Shane Helms) beat Tigre Uno in a cage match to retain the X Division Title. Tigre came out with heavy strapping on his shoulder. Helms introduced himself as the star power and Trevor Lee as the horsepower. He has the worst intro music I’ve ever heard. Lee busted open up his mouth early in the match. Tigre Uno came off the top of the cage with a crossbody, which caused someone behind me to scream just escape. Sure enough, Lee came back and won the match…
After the previous match, they brought out all kinds of weapons and hung them up on the cage for the first ever Knockouts Lethal Lockdown. I didn’t have high hopes for this. JB announced that Madison Rayne had been taken out by the dollhouse, so Gail Kim and Velvet sky would have to find a third partner. Jade from the Dollhouse made her entrance followed by Gail Kim to a great reaction…

3. Jade, Marti Bell, and Rebel beat Gail Kim, Velvet Sky, and Maria in a Lethal Lockdown match. Jade went for a weapon first but was cut off. Some idiot obnoxious fans behind me shouted kiss. Marti Bell came out as the next entrant. She beat down Kim for a while. Pretty quickly Velvet Sky was introduced as the next entrant and gained the advantage on both heels. No weapons used so far. Rebel entered and knocked down both Kim and Sky. Rebel grabbed the baking tray ad smashed Kim in the head.

The surprise entrant for Kim and Sky was Maria, who ran to the ring teased climbing in the ring. However, with a smile she locked the door and mocked Kim. The Dollhouse chocked out Kim and Sky before hitting them with kendo sticks. The heels beat down the babyfaces but Kim and Sky came back and managed to get the upper hand. The crowd chanted this awesome. The ending of the match came when Jade hit a pretty neat pile driver type maneuver.

Kurt Angle came out to a thunderous and standing ovation. It was a stunning moment. He climbed in the ring and looked genuinely touched. He said this is his farewell tour, and he couldn’t be happier to have it anywhere than in the UK. He mentioned the match last year against Lashley, which brought the man himself out. Lashley climbed in the ring and said he can’t believe he is out here bragging about beating him, but like he told him he’s going to get revenge. He said he did that to motivate him and they would have one more match and he would get the revenge that he wants. Angle said he came out to talk to the fans but now he’s pissed off. He challenged him to a match on the spot. Lashley said carry on talking to your fans, our time will come, and with that he walked out of the ring. A surprisingly good promo by Lashley…

4. Odarg beat Eli Drake in a cage match. Drake grabbed a microphone and said Grado was fired so why is he running around with a mask calling himself Odarg. With that “Like a Prayer” played and the crowd exploded. Odarg climbed in the ring and was attacked by Eli Drake. Odarg tried to climb out of the ring but couldn’t reach the top and moved when Drake went for a punch. Eventually, Drake low blowed him. This led to Drake throwing Odarg around and against the steel cage. The end of the match came when Eli’s trunks where pulled slightly down exposing his rear end and Odarg hit a running somersault in the corner. Odarg climbed the cage and both men fought on top. Odarg went to drop down but as he did Drake grabbed his mask exposing him as Grado. Odarg ran to the back with a towel over his head. Fun but slightly silly match…
They announced that TNA is opening a wrestling school in London…

5. Matt Hardy (w/Tyrus) beat EC3 in a cage match to retain the TNA Title. EC3 came out to another great reaction, the fans have accepted the turn. The singing of his theme song has been the loudest thing on this taping outside of Angle. Hardy came out with Tyrus but without Reby. Matt climbed on the apron and jawed at EC3 and shared some words with Tyrus. The cage door closed and both men stood facing each other. They exchanged punches but Hardy got the early advantage. EC3 came back with multiple chops. Tyrus threw a chair in the ring, which Matt used to his advantage and had full control of the match until EC3 threw Matt head first into a chair setup in the corner.
At one point in the match, EC3 tried to walk out the door but Tyrus blocked his path. He called Tyrus in the ring and beat him down. Tyrus though eventually came back and knocked EC3 to the mat. He picked up a chain and chained EC3 to the ropes, however EC3 reversed it and got Tyrus chained in the ropes. With this distraction, Hardy snuck up from behind and hit a Twist of Fate for a near near near fall. Matt attempted to climb the cage but EC3 suplexed him off the cage.

Late in the match, EC3 low blowed Hardy, and the crowd got behind the former champion. Reby came down to the ring with a hammer, but Rockstar Spud ran down and took the hammer and threw it away. He opened the door for EC3 but then slammed it in his head. He helped Matt climb out of the cage to retain the title. The crowd chanted you sold out at Spud as he stood over EC3 with a chair and hit him in the head. Spud, Matt and Reby celebrated to finish the taping for the first show.

Kong Sent Home, TNA Talent, WWE Roster Moves, ROH Re-Signs.

TNA's John Gaburick Comments on Awesome Kong

Opinionated View- I'm glade to see they are addressing it but no committing to anything. Sadly I've started to see people going "TNA is picking Hardy's wife over Kong." That is not what they are doing people. Kong fucked up badly here. What other job do you think you can attack someone and not get in trouble? Hell like I said if I were in charge she would be fired remember this is the second time she had an incident like this.

Update on Possible Cause of Awesome Kong and Reby Sky Incident has more on the story between Awesome Kong and Reby Sky in TNA that led to Awesome Kong being sent home from the UK tour. There was an apparent incident between the two during the tour. According to the report, the feud between Sky and Kong goes back to 2013 after comments were made on social media and in a shoot interview. So it seems the bad blood between Sky and Kong had been brewing for quite some time.
In 2013, Sky posted on Twitter on Sid Vicious no-showing at an indy event. This caused Kong to insult Skya nd call her a “ho” and a “peon” later on during a YouShoot interview segment called “The Ho Bag.” Sky later responded to Kong on Twitter with the following post:
“Not aware of this, if it is true. Doesn’t make much sense, as I don’t know her on a really personal level & we have been nothing but nice to each other in passing at shows. We’ve actually texted back & forth a few times, so if she now has a problem with me, I can only attribute it to one thing/person. Fake as f–k to be nice to my face & talk s–t to a camera if its true, but no shocker there. That’s 99% of the women in this business anyway. Next.”
Sky then posted this in September on Awesome Kong:
“I will NEVER respect a no-show; someone who scams promoters and f***s fans and people who actually show up to work. F*** outta here. That being said, go back to smiling to my face at shows and talking shit online [Kharma], you FAKEASS bitch.”

Opinoinated View- Ok this does shed some light but still I think Awesome Kong should be fired. As bad as what Reby said it over the line to attack anyone ever.

The Wolves Talk Future With TNA

Breaking News: Awesome Kong Sent Home From TNA Tour After Incident With Reby Sky

– PWInsider reports that Awesome Kong has been sent home on the first day of the TNA tour of the UK. The site reports that Kong was sent home after an altercation in the locker room with Reby Sky.
According to the site’s sources, Kong had an issue with Sky for some reason and when the latter tried to dress in the women’s locker room, Kong took her bag and threw it out of the room. Sky then left the room and when she returned to get her things, Kong tried to attack her for “not apologizing” for the as-yet-undetermined offense.

There are said to be two versions of the story after that. The first is that Kong tried to attack Sky but was stopped, while the second (which the site says comes from “FAR more people”) is that Kong got to Sky and throttled her before security and producer Pat Kenney restrained Kong. Sky and Matt Hardy’s son was said to be in the vicinity of the incident.

Kong has now been sent home. It’s unknown what this means for her future with TNA

Opinionated View- You always want to wait for all the details to come out but this sounds really bad. And to be honest if I were running TNA Kong would be fired. Hell even if Reby did something "to bring it on" this is now you handle anything. Also remember Kong has history of doing this remember that incident with Bubba The Love Sponge?

And for anyone about to go "It's wrestling this stuff happens." Your right it does but the world changes. Also I am aware the Reby and Matt had an incident about two years ago that is why I am willing to hear the full story. But this appears to be Kong was pissed about something tried to bully Reby and than attacked.

Alberto Del Rio Reportedly Dealing With Back Injury

It seems like the injury bug has struck again. PWInsider reports that Alberto Del Rio is currently dealing with a problem in his lower back. He was last in two matches at the 2016 Royal Rumble, against Kalisto and the Rumble match itself at #26. He was also involved in a beatdown of Roman Reigns before he entered the match.

Del Rio didn’t wrestle on RAW but did appear in the corner of Sheamus and Rusev in the main event. He didn’t appear on Smackdown and wasn’t even backstage at the tapings on Tuesday. It remains to be seen if he works this weekend’s live events, as he’s scheduled for shows in Chattanooga, TN and Tupelo, MS.

NXT Talent to Compete At Summer Olympics

Courtesy of
NXT's Adrian Jaoude to compete on the Brazilian wrestling team at the 2016 Summer Olympics
There have been plenty of Olympians that chose to enter the squared circle after their gold medal dreams came to an end, but WWE can now lay claim to a true rarity: having an active Olympic competitor on the roster.
NXT's Adrian Jaoude received word earlier this month that he has been chosen to represent Brazil in the wrestling competition at the 2016 Summer Olympics later this year in Rio de Janeiro.
"It's awesome," Robbie Brookside, Jaoude's coach at the WWE Performance Center, told "Going back to when I was wrestling in England, I knew very good wrestlers that tried to get to there. Seeing Adrian go to the Olympics, it's like ... wow!"
Jaoude joined WWE in October 2015 as part of a class that included Tough Enough winners Josh Bredl and Sara Lee, as well as independent scene standouts Christopher Girard and Rich Swann. Though he may not have had professional wrestling experience like some of his peers, the Brazilian had plenty of familiarity with the amateur style of grappling. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder competed at the state, regional and national level, and was named Best Brazilian Wrestler in the junior category in 2000 and the senior category in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2012. That pedigree helped him pick up the pro game when he arrived at the Performance Center last year.
"Adrian's come into the group and his natural ability has shone through," Brookside said. "It's still very early in his career, but thus far, he's come in and picked things up – footwork, balance, attitude, application and holds. He's got a great appreciation and understanding of what it's all about and puts it to great use."
WWE Performance Center Head Coach Matt Bloom concurred.
"To be as successful as he's been, you need to have that desire to be the best in whatever you do. Adrian has that," Bloom explained. "He understands that this is a whole new process, with new techniques. He knows that by working harder than the guy next to him, he's going to advance. He's doing just that."
With just under seven months to go before the wrestling competition begins, Jaoude is in the midst of a rigorous training program at the Performance Center with strength coach Matt Wichlinski, whose approach to getting the Brazilian ready for international competition is kept simple.
"Basically, we're doing a general strength-and-conditioning program," Wichlinski said. "It's nothing extraordinary as far as different exercises, but it's about the extraordinary effort he puts into the basics. For what he's trying to do, all his skills are prepared in the ring and on the mat. He's coming into the gym to get his shoulders, back and legs stronger."
As for what having an active Olympian at the Performance Center means, Bloom put it simply.
"It means the best of the best want to be a part of the best of the best, which is NXT and WWE," he said.
Brookside sees Jaoude's achievement as something uplifting for the entire NXT crew.
"It's kind of breathtaking," he said. "I think it's a great thing for everyone down here to turn around and go, 'One of us is going to the Olympics.' It's not very often you can say that."

Determined to make the ROH World Championship a truly world title after winning it in June in New York, Lethal has defended his championship in ROH, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and in Europe, including a recent 10-day stretch where he wrestled on three continents! Lethal, who made his ROH debut in 2004, has become one of the most decorated stars in ROH history, entering his 21st consecutive month holding championship gold!

“As the Ring of Honor World Champion, there is no place I would rather be,” said Lethal. “The Best Professional Wrestling on the Planet isn’t a clever marketing moniker – I have re-signed with ROH to prove that I am the best professional wrestler in the world as I defend the Ring of Honor World Championship across the globe.”

Since forming a tag team in 2012, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly, known collectively as reDRagon, have set a worldwide standard for tag team wrestling. The three-time ROH World Tag Team Champions nicknamed the “Two Man Smash Machine” and “Best Team on God’s Green”, have had unparalleled success in Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling as both tag team competitors and singles stars. With their contract renewal, fans of Fish and O’Reilly will be ecstatic to know that reDRagon will continue to compete in New Japan, where they are winners of the Super Jr. Tag Team Tournament and two-time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions!

“When you talk about tag team wrestling, War Machine, the Young Bucks, Briscoes, All Night Express, all of the top teams in the world are in or are coming to Ring of Honor,” said Fish. O’Reilly added, “We have our sights set on it all in 2016 – singles and tag team gold. 2016 will be the Year of the Dragon in ROH.”

With three key stars re-signed to the ROH ranks, their sights undoubtedly turn from contract negotiations to Ring of Honor’s 14th Anniversary Pay Per View on Friday February 25, 9 PM EST/6 PM PST! Lethal and O’Reilly have already been signed as part of a huge three-way ROH World Title Defense where Lethal will defend against O’Reilly and Adam Cole!

Opinionated View- Very disappointed by all of three staying with ROH. They have all reached that point where they are out of things to do in ROH. Lethal has turned into one of the most repetitive wrestlers I have ever seen. Fish and O'Riley pretty much are stuck in the pattern of hold the belts for a while not really have a hot feud than drop them. I think all three would have better off leaving for WWE, NXT or TNA.

Daniel Bryan Offered Non-Wrestling Roles in WWE

According to the WON, WWE is looking to plan a future for Daniel Bryan outside of the ring. The site reports that WWE officials have told Bryan that he won’t be cleared and have offered him other, non-wrestling roles in the company.
As has been the case for a while now, Bryan has been cleared by other concussion specialists but not by WWE and Dr. Joseph Maroon. Bryan argued his case to Vince McMahon and was told that he probably will not be cleared to return to the ring.
At least some of the roster was expecting Bryan to make his return at the Royal Rumble, but of course that didn’t happen.

Samoa Joe, Sami Zayn Coming to Main Roster Soon?

– According to the WON, Samoa Joe and Sami Zayn could be headed to the main roster soon. The site reports that the current creative plans involve bringing Joe up after after WrestleMania 32, while Zayn could be headed up for a feud with Kevin Owens.
The site notes that there was some alternate talk of Joe beating Finn Balor for the NXT Title which would extend their feud and delay the call-up, but that right now the plans are to have him come up as soon as the Raw after WrestleMania.
Finn Balor is not expected to be called up any time soon, as WWE plans to keep him as the face of NXT past March.

1/27 Lucha Underground Report

Season two of Lucha Underground opens on the Youssef Floro Clinic, Psychotic Break Division. We see Vampiro sitting at a table, being evaluated by a therapist. The man calls him "Ian" and asks him various questions about his mental health, as graphic cuts from last season flash through his mind. The doc gives him a bottle of anti-psychotic pills and makes him promise to stay away from the people and places that bring out his "violent episodes", as a condition of his release. Vamp agrees, and we cut to the desert where Matt Striker is waiting by a lowrider to pick him up. Vamp asks if they still have a job, and Striker claims that The Temple isn't what it used to be; it's a "much darker place" now.
- We're inside Catrina's new office now, as Gift of the Gods Champion Fenix approaches her. He says he wants Mil Muertes and the L.U. Championship, but Catrina wants him to wait. She books Fenix vs. King Cuerno tonight in a match for the GOTG title, and if can get through Cuerno tonight than he'll get his championship match.
- They've got Lucha Underground Champion Mil Muertes on a throne now, basically as a king, overseeing everything that's happening from the top of The Temple. It's very Shang Tsung's Throne Room from Mortal Kombat.
Gift of the Gods Championship Match
Fenix (c) vs. King Cuerno
Lots of back-and-forth here and a very solid 10-minute match. Technical to start as the two feel each other out, and it's Cuerno who takes control first with a big DDT off the apron and hits a suicide dive through the ropes. Fenix mounts a comeback with tons of flashy offense including a springboard dropkick, springboard armdrag, flying cutter and a corkscrew splash to the floor. From here out it's big moves with lots of near-falls for both guys, with lots of "this is awesome" and "lucha" chants from the crowd.
Finish: Cuerno sets him up in the corner and looks to put him away but runs into a huge superkick. Fenix takes advantage and heads to the top for the corkscrew splash but comes up empty, and Cuerno drops him with an inverted package piledriver for the win. New champion!
Winner and New Champion: King Cuerno
- We're backstage with Catrina again, and this time she's interrupted by the former Trios Champions: Ivelisse, Son of Havoc and Angelico. The team wants their titles back, of course, but apparently Mil has other plans for them, and she offers them a triple threat match tonight... against each other. The winner gets a shot at Mil and the world title in tonight's main event. Ivelisse accepts the match for all of them and gets in Catrina's face, saying that after she wins the belt she's coming for her next.
- Another Catrina segment, this time with King Cuerno, who just won the Gift of the Gods Championship in the season two opener. She warns him to remember "the deal" he made with Mil Muertes, and Cuerno says they have nothing to worry about.
#1 Contender's Match
Ivelisse vs. Son of Havoc vs. Angelico
We get a showdown between the partners and it looks like this is gonna remain a friendly competition, until Angelico tries to roll up Ivelisse from behind. She snaps and goes crazy on him with kicks and chops into the corner, slaps Havoc when he tries to break them up, and throws Angelico out with a hurricanrana. They battle to the top rope and Ivelisse knocks him down, following up with a flying crossbody for two.
More "this is awesome" chants from the crowd as things start to get crazy(er), winding up to the finish. Son of Havoc does a bunch of suicide dives to both opponents, then a springboard double foot stomp to Angelico and a standing moonsault for a close two. He sets up for Death From Above, but Ivelisse comes back and knocks him off the ropes, then rolls up Angelico with an inside cradle for the three!
Winner: Ivelisse
- Three guys in a car pull up to a woman, who turns out to be Angela Fong. They're looking for some kind of underground Fight Club, and she tells them to follow her. Couldn't quite tell who was in the car.
Lucha Underground Championship Match
Mil Muertes (c) vs. Ivelisse
Catrina brings down the Disciples of Death before the match even gets started, and the trio lays out Angelico and Son of Havoc. A little insurance policy for the champion. The crowd is going crazy for Ivelisse as we head to our final commercial of the evening.
When we come back, Ivelisse is predictably getting tossed around the ring and bullied with relative ease. The mugging goes on for several minutes until the champ tries to throw her over the ropes but gets caught in a cross-armbar over the top rope. She fires back with a dozen rights and lefts and plants Muertes with a massive tilt-a-whirl DDT from the top turnbuckle for a very close nearfall. In comes Catrina to save her champion, but Ivelisse moves out of the way and Catrina takes a huge spear from the big man. Roll-up for a very, very close nearfall as the crowd almost loses their minds. Mil hits a powerslam and the Flatliner for the three to retain.
Winner and Still Champion: Mil Muertes
- Catrina orders the attack to continue after the bell, but Prince Puma comes out making his season two debut for the save, laying out the champion with a superkick. Puma and Ivelisse run off as Mil is left in the ring screaming at them, until Pentagon Jr. comes out of nowhere and drops him with a backstabber. He teases breaking the champ's arm and motions to the crowd to see what they want, and eventually decides to do it, as Mil rolls around in pain to end the show.
- The episode fades to black, but we fade back in and... it's Dairo Cueto! He's standing outside a building as Angela Fong shows up with those three guys. They say they're looking for the underground Fight Club, and ask "what's with the chick?" Fong beats the hell out of the guy who said it, and Cueto tells them all the entrance fee is $20 and they pay it. He unlocks the gate and lets them in. The last guy asks him "who's fighting tonight?" and Cueto says "you are" as he laughs and shuts the gate. We fade out to screams of pain from behind the door as Dairo walks away.
