Latest NXT Names Likely For Main Roster Call-Up

According to the Wrestling Observer, Finn Balor and American Alpha are both considered likely to be called up to the main roster as part of the WWE Draft.

Bayley is expected to stay with NXT until NXT Takeover: Back to Brooklyn during SummerSlam weekend. The site says things were “back and forth” over the past week about whether Bayley would be called up but that as of now she is expected to face Asuka at NXT Takeover before heading to the main roster.

Opinionated View- With Balor its about damn time. The guy is legit one of if not the very best in the world right now. It's been insane to keep him in NXT because you decided to make that  touring brand and are worried younger guys couldn't carry the show. NXT is developmental it should never been the top area for anyone in the roster. I just hope they book him right let him come right in strong with a good feud and big wins. Don't screw him over by making him guy four in the club.

I don't want to bash American Alpha because I think they have the potential to be a great team... someday. For now though they should still be in NXT. They just aren't ready for the main roster. You can see some real rough spots in there ring work. You want to call up next a tag team The Revival would be better, Blake and Murphy would be better, hell The Hype Bros would better.

Well nothing has changed with Bayley for me. She is not that good in the ring. Don't get me wrong there are worse out there. But at best she is very basic. And that gimmick is so annoying. It will not work on the main roster where she will be on the road all the time.

Jeff Jarrett In LA For TV Meetings For GFW TV Deal

Jeff Jarrett was in Los Angeles this week, having meetings in regards to acquiring a TV deal for the company.

Opinionated View- To all those TNA fans that were going "TNA Should leave POP," a few weeks ago this is why they shouldn't. I know GFW runs show but man it still feels like this company never got a start.

* Carmella vs. Alexa Bliss
* Andrade Cien Almas vs. Noah Potjes
* The Hype Bros vs. Johnny Gargano and Tommasso Ciampa
* Plus, an appearance by NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival

Opinionated View- Well the tag match should be pretty good. Other matches not so much. And anytime I have to sit through Camrella is awful she is just ok at best in the ring but again has  really annoying gimmick.

ROH TV Preview: Another Week of Already Aired Footage

Opinionated View- ROH is really this cheap. They are again airing another week of footage that has already aired. I never want to hear ROH fans bash TNA's pre-taping ever again. Because TNA isn't showing stuff from months ago that they aired weeks ago.

6/28 Impact Wrestling Report Lashley vs. Galloway vs. EC3

EC3, Drew Galloway, and Lashley are all shown arriving earlier today as they get set for their Triple Threat tonight.
A video package recaps last week’s event and then we cut to the ring where Mike Bennett is raising the X-Division Title in the air. Maria says that she wants to thank Billy Corgan for being a gracious and fear leader in the absence of the evil Dixie Carter. Maria says that Impact is “her show” tonight and Bennett says that with Destination X right around the corner he has a golden ticket to the World Title while holding up the X-Division Title. He says that he will cash in “Option C” and he will not only be known as the world’s greatest X-Division wrestler but also the world’s greatest Heavyweight Champion of the World. Lashley says that Lashley is carrying something he wants and he may be big and bad but he will never be half the man that Bennett is.
Lashley comes to the ring and he says that Bennett calling out his name isn’t a good thing for him to do. Lashley points out their size difference and says that it looks like Bennett is actually half the size of Lashley. Bennett says that Lashley cannot intimidate him but Lashley says he isn’t attempting to do that because when he attempts to intimidate him he will know. Lashley points to all of the people he has “destroyed” and dismisses Bennett as just an afterthought. Bennett says to look past the X-Division Title and to look him in the eyes because he is “The Miracle.” He says that he hopes Lashley, EC3, and Galloway tear each other apart because he doesn’t care which one of them he has to face at DX because he is taking that World Title.
The lights go out and EC3’s music hits. The former World Champion comes to the ring and says that as much as he would love to just watch Lashley and Bennett beat the hell out of each other the thing that matters is the World Title. He says that they all want that title but Lashley is the one that has it. He says that he has been planning his return to glory like the Invasion of Normandy and tonight he gets his title back. Lashley says it will be a fight tonight and he will make the fans realize that EC3 is not half as tough as he wants them to believe he is.
Bennett says it doesn’t matter what either of them say because he will take the title from them at DX. EC3 says that Bennett got that title in the first place by being a conniving, cheating weasel and using Corgan to bullshit his way into a title shot and he can’t even congratulate him on winning that title because he is a such a piece of shit.
Billy Corgan steps onto the stage and Corgan asks if EC3 is really questioning his integrity. Corgan says it is because of what Dixie did that put them in the situation in the first place. He says that Bennett make a good case at getting his title shot so he granted it. EC3 suggests that everyone in the X-Division should get a chance to Main Event at Destination X, not just Bennett and they should get that chance tonight. Bennett freaks out at that thought but Corgan says he likes that idea because Bennett can’t just talk his way to Destination X. Corgan makes a match for tonight where Bennett will defend his title against the winner of an X-Division Battle Royal tonight! Bennett attacks EC3 and then Lashley clotheslines EC3 as he starts t make a comeback.
Galloway runs out and nails Bennett with a Claymore and then goes after Lashley as well! Galloway goes for the Claymore again but Lashley sidesteps him and Galloway levels EC3!
Backstage EC3 and Bennett bicker about what just happened. Galloway says he was trying to help EC3 but Ethan is having none of it and they end up getting in each other’s faces as other wrestlers try to separate them.
Allie congratulates Gail on being inducted into the Hall of Fame as she and Sienna come to the ring. Allie mocks Gail and says that Gail has been wrestling for a very long time. She says that the next step for Gail should be retirement and says that Sienna will put her into forced retirement tonight.
TNA Knockouts Championship
Sienna (c) w/Allie vs. Gail Kim
Gail ducks under Sienna as she went for a lockup and gets Sienna in a side headlock. Gail then connects with an armdrag but as she went for another one Sienna blocked it. Gail then rocked Sienna with a Forearm Smash followed by a gorgeous Spinning Headscissors. Gail attempts to whip Sienna into the ropes but Sienna reverses it and sends Gail into the corner. Gail kicks a charging Sienna in the gut and then clotheslines her for a quick nearfall. Gail hits a series of forearms and then attempts a Crucifix Rollup but Sienna blocks it and slams Gail hard with a Samoan Drop for a nearfall of her own. Sienna takes control of the match beating Gail down in the corner. Sienna argues with the referee while Allie chokes Gail in the ropes. Sienna puts Gail in a Straight Jacket Choke but Gail fights back to her feet only for Sienna to back her into the turnbuckles. Sienna lifts Gail to the top but then eats a forearm from Gail followed by a Blockbuster off the top! Jade runs out attacks Allie. She attempts a Package Piledriver on the floor but Marti Belle attacks her from behind. Allie attempts to hit Gail with the Knockouts Title but Gail ducks only to turn around into The Silencer (think Monty Brown’s Pounce finisher) from Sienna for the pin.
Winner & STILL TNA Knockouts Champion: Sienna via pinfall (The Silencer)
Backstage Matt Hardy is shown arriving in a wheelchair with Reby. Matt says that Jeff confined him to that chair but he says he will not stop coming until he gets what he wants and this will not ever be over.
Drew Galloway approaches Bennett backstage and says that Bennett just can’t help himself by running his mouth and ruining everything. Bennett says that he could beat every X-Division wrestler if they were lined up for him and he says he can beat Galloway too. Galloway warns Bennett not to take the X-Division guys lightly and says that if Bennett ever gets a shot at the World Title he will be facing him not Lashley. Bennett reminds Galloway that he has beat him before but Drew says if it wasn’t for his “witch of a wife” he never would have.
Eli Drake is in the ring for another “Fact of Life.” This guy is getting more and more over the top each week. He was actually hiding behind the “Fact of Life” table while introducing himself. He tells the fans to do a “dummy yeah” chant with him but when they start he tells them to shutup because he was talking to himself not them. Drake says that he took a break from defending his title all over the world to sit down for a dinner with his family and friends. He talks about how awesome his fathers mashed potatoes are and says that Drake’s do two things in life: make great mashed potatoes and kick ass. Drake introduces his guest tonight, James Storm, who he says is jealous of Drake.
Drake says that he is happy that Storm decided to “walk it off” instead of driving his “stupid cooler” to the ring. Drake says that Storm has been in TNA since day one and he was one pretty much every title in TNA, but he has been going through a drought recently. He asks if Storm is jealous seeing a guy like Drake winning the KOTM Title. Storm says he has been watching Drake and calls him “Eli Dork” which causes an “Eli Dork” chant to start. Drake gets pissed and starts calling all the fans “dummy” and says that he would like to make Drake’s “dummy” button into a drinking game and says that everytime Drake hits that button they should take a drink. Drake pulls out a jug of water and agrees. Drake says he is the greatest television host ever and he is also the KOTM Champion and asks Storm where his title is! Storm says that he is the guy that has paved the way for punks like Drake to come to TNA. He says that he has busted his ass for the fans and the company and that is his title. Drake makes fun of Storm for being a redneck and says he has a beer belly. He says that Storm couldn’t even win the Knockouts Title and says he better watch his tongue when he standing in front of Drake. Storm says they should change the drinking game up and everytime Drake hits the Dummy Button he is going to slap the piss out of him. Storm and the fans taunt Drake to hit the button but he refuses and says that Storm can’t come on his show and call the shots. He tells Storm to walk away because no one wants to see him anymore and Storm agrees but says there paths will cross one day and he will beat Drake’s ass. Drake throws Storm’s beer out of the ring which pisses Storm off and causes him to hit Drake with a Last Call!
Backstage Jeff Hardy says he assumed Matt would show up tonight and they will find the solution that Matt wants to this whole thing.
Earlier tonight Bram is shown being attacked by Decay during an Xplosion taping.
Backstage Rosemary gets in Bram’s face and says that he can fight it but everything comes to Decay in time. She says that some come willingly but others need to be coerced as she sits in Bram’s lap. She tells Bram to just let Decay happen.
Matt Hardy comes to the ring being wheeled out in a wheelchair by Reby. Footage of Jeff Hardy’s wild dive off the cage last week is shown. Reby tries to help Matt into the ring but Matt says his injuries won’t let him do it. He wants Reby to wheel Matt around ringside so he can see the “despicable creatures” and force them to see what their hero (Jeff) did to him. Matt says he is the one that is responsible for all of Jeff’s success and he detests all of his creatures. Matt talks about being broke and calling Jeff a monster. Matt says he needs Jeff to come out and look him in the eyes so he can tell Jeff what he needs.
Jeff comes to the ring and asks Matt what he wants. Matt says he wants this to be over but Jeff is a resilient creature. He says that he will never stop pursuing Jeff until he gets what he needs. Jeff asks Matt what he needs to end this feud and Matt says that he needs one more match to end it. He says that he needs to win and he must do it so he can have his salvation and redemption. He wants Jeff to give him six weeks to recover from his injuries so they can have their “Armageddon.” Matt suggests a match where the winner gets to control the Hardy name and Jeff accepts it. Reby says she is so sick of this whole thing and she calls Jeff the worst brother ever. She tells Jeff that he broke Matt and he needs to fix this. Jeff tells Reby to jump on her broom and fly away. Jeff says that he will take care of their son since they are obviously both nuts which causes Matt to attack Jeff from behind. Matt drags Jeff into the ring and starts laying into him with a chair. Matt places the chair around Jeff’s neck and hits a Twist of Fate on Jeff while holding the chair around Jeff’s neck!
Matt says he doesn’t need six weeks because their “Armageddon” will happen in one week. He says that their match will not happen in the Impact Zone but they will have their “final battle” will take place in their “home” in Cameron, North Carolina and it will be the “final deletion.”

Ricochet/Prince Puma Done With Lucha Underground

Ricochet has finished up his commitments with Lucha Underground. The Wrestling Observer reports that the wrestler, who works as Prince Puma in the company, finished at their last TV tapings, which concluded filming for season three. As of now, he is done with the company for the time being.

That being said, he won’t be in WWE any time soon due to his contract with Lucha Underground, which states that he can’t appear for a televised promotion in the US until the content he’s filmed has aired. The site says that Ricochet will take indy bookings through the fall and work for NJPW in the winter, and may end up in WWE next year.

Opinoinated View- Big loss for LU because Ricochet/Puma is a big part of the reason for a lot of the great matches LU has had. Also knowing LU there is a good chance Puma is murdered brutally backstage and than regenerates Doctor Who style so a new wrestler takes over the rule.

Total Bellas To Debut October 5th

E! Entertainment issued the following press release on Monday announcing that the “Total Divas” spin off show, “Total Bellas” will begin airing on Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. Eastern (7:00 CT) with the season premiere taking place on Wednesday, October 5.


BREAKING: E!'s premieres Wednesday, October 5 at 8/7c!  @BellaTwins
WWE Superstars The Bella Twins(TM), John Cena(R) and Daniel Bryan(R) Move In Under One Roof in New Spin-Off Series Premiering Wednesday, October 5 at 8:00pm ET/PT
LOS ANGELES, CA – June 27, 2016 – Two’s company, three’s a crowd, and these four – are just too much to handle. E! Entertainment exposes the Raw and real lives of WWE(R) Superstars Nikki and Brie Bella when “Total Bellas,” spin-off of E!’s mega-hit series “Total Divas,” premieres Wednesday, October 5 at 8:00pm ET/PT. The six, one-hour episodes will give viewers an exclusive, intimate look into the VIP lives of the Bellas and their fellas, John Cena and Daniel Bryan, as the four distinctly unique and comical personalities coexist under one roof for the first time.
Although these twins share the same genes, they will never share the same jeans as living together was more tolerable when they just shared a womb. The free-spirited, vegan-loving, live-and-let-live lifestyle of Brie and Bryan has always clashed with the fancy panache of the designer handbag-loving Nikki and the meticulously organized tendencies of John. However, when the four world-renowned WWE Superstars move in under one roof, the comical clash of titans rings all throughout the suburbs of Tampa, FL.
The series kicks-off with Nikki and John being sidelined by injuries and Daniel’s recent retirement from the ring. This docu-series will follow the odd-couple relationships of these eccentric WWE Superstars as Brie does her best to nurse, not only Nikki, but John and Daniel back to health, all while trying to retain their sanity. With Nikki’s recent neck surgery, Brie’s retirement at WrestleMania(R), Daniel’s untimely retirement from WWE, and John’s rising profile in Hollywood, fans will get an exclusive beyond-the-ropes glimpse into how these dynamic individuals juggle their reality and prepare for their uncertain futures.

Updated WWE Battleground Card

Here is the updated card for WWE Battleground as of Tuesday.
WWE Championship – Triple Threat Match
Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns
Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

6/27 WWE Raw Report

We immediately go into the arena to hear the music of Seth Rollins. As Rollins makes his way to the ring, they advertise his WWE Battleground match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against champion Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. Rollins says in four weeks at Battleground, everyone will get the match they’ve wanted: all three former members of The Shield in a triple threat match. Rollins pauses for a moment and says it’s time to talk about Roman Reigns, even though he’s not supposed to. People boo the mention of his name. Rollins says the Reigns scandal embarrassed him. As the architect of The Shield, he brought Reigns into the fold. Reigns’ embarrassment is a stain on Rollins’ reputation. Rollins then reads Reigns’ tweet out loud: “I apologize to my family, friends and fans for my mistake in violating the WWE’s wellness policy. No excuses. I own it.” Rollins criticizes the tweet. Back when they were in The Shield, Reigns didn’t care what the fans thought and didn’t have any friends. As for Reigns owning it, he is owning up after the fact. Rollins says Reigns can own it all he wants, but the bottom line is he owns Reigns. He owned Reigns last year at WrestleMania, and he owned him at Money in the Bank when he beat him for the WWE Championship. Rollins says Reigns doesn’t deserve a second chance or forgiveness. Most of all, Reigns doesn’t deserve to be in the main event of Battleground. The right thing to do is take Reigns out of the match and give him the one-on-one match against Dean Ambrose for the WWE Title that he rightfully deserves. The crowd is mostly receptive to this idea.

Dean Ambrose’s music hits, and the WWE Champion makes his way to the ring. The company seems to no longer be referring to it as the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Ambrose gets a nice reception as he gets into the ring. Ambrose stalls for a bit and taunts Rollins. Ambrose says Rollins looks worked up and jerky. Is this really about Reigns or is it about him having the title? Ambrose says Reigns made a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes. Ambrose used to be friends with Rollins, so he made a huge mistake. Rollins wears skinny jeans, which is a huge mistake. Ambrose says Reigns made a mistake and owned it. Unless he has New Day’s time machine, there’s nothing that can be done about it. In his mind, the triple threat match is still on.

AJ Styles’ music hits, and he comes out to a huge reception. The crowd chants “AJ Styles.” Styles says Rollins should listen to Ambrose because Battleground should have a triple threat match… only with him in the match. The crowd does a “YES” chant. Styles says he’s the guy that beat John Cena in a dream match. Take out Reigns and put him in the match and all will be right with the world. Ambrose says he doesn’t make the decisions around here, but Reigns is still in the match. Styles requests to be put in because he deserves it. It should be a Fatal Four-Way match. Ambrose says he doesn’t care because he’ll whoop them all. Rollins says this needs to be a one-on-one match.
John Cena’s music hits, and the face that runs this place makes his way to the ring to a huge reception before the crowd begins to split on him. Cena says Dean Ambrose is a fighting champion. Ambrose will fight a friend, a foe, and a fraud. Will he fight the franchise? Maybe there’s a mixed opinion, but he’s held the title fifteen times. Fourteen years ago today he had his first WWE match, so this is his WWE birthday. If you’re really checking your facts, for the last twelve years he’s lived in Tampa. This gets a big reception. The most important thing is the last time he faced Dean Ambrose with a championship on the line, Cena won. The look on Ambrose’s face says times are changing, so he can prove it. At Battleground, it should be a Fatal Five-Way!

Stephanie McMahon’s music hits, and she comes out to barely any reception. She says she has a solution to their problem, but before she does, she wants to commiserate with Rollins. What happened with Reigns is an embarrassment, but even worse is the fact that standing in the ring as WWE Champion is Dean Ambrose. Ambrose defiantly holds up the title. She says she’s mortified. How can we reconcile this? She’d ask her brother Shane McMahon, but he’s not here again. She’ll have to take matters into her own hands, but she’s ok with that. She likes the idea of Styles and Cena joining the match, but an opportunity like that must be earned. Therefore tonight, Seth Rollins will go one-on-one against John Cena. As for AJ Styles, he’ll go one-on-one against the champion Dean Ambrose. If they both win their matches, they’ll be added to the WWE Championship match at Battleground. She wishes everyone but Ambrose luck. Her music hits, and she walks off.
Coming up tonight, we’ll see the return of The Highlight Reel with special guests Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Coming up next, we’ll see Charlotte and Dana Brooke take on Paige and Sasha Banks.

Sasha covers, but Charlotte pulls her out. Sasha ducks an attack, and Charlotte eats a superkick from Paige. Sasha gets in the ring, and Dana rolls her up for a two count. Sasha knees Dana in the face and applies the Bank Statement for the win.

-Commercial Break-

Lana is standing in the ring as we return from break. She gives the introduction for Rusev while gloating that he is her fiancée. Replays are shown of Rusev telling Titus O’Neil’s children that their father is a loser at Money in the Bank. That set O’Neil off the next night on RAW.

Rusev lets out a guttural scream and punches away at O’Neil. Rusev relentlessly punches away at him before simply getting up. Rusev knees away at him and stomps him in the corner. Rusev applies a chin lock, and a light “Let’s go Titus” chant breaks out. O’Neil fights out, and he runs into a picture-perfect dropkick from Rusev. O’Neil comes back with an elbow and he punches away at him. Rusev quickly stops him and hits the ropes, but O’Neil hits a pair of clotheslines. Rusev gets out of the ring to avoid the big boot. Rusev wants his WWE United States Championship and goes to leave. Rusev sees O’Neil charging him, so they wipe each other out with a double clothesline on the floor! They slowly get up, and O’Neil sends Rusev into the timekeeper’s area before getting in the ring to get the count-out victory. Rusev looks livid.
Winner by Count-Out: Titus O’Neil

Later tonight, we’ll see Dean Ambrose take on AJ Styles. If Styles wins, he’ll be inserted into the WWE Championship match at WWE Battleground.
-Commercial Break-

Stephanie McMahon is talking on her cell phone backstage when she bumps into Corporate Kane, who begs for a moment with her. Kane thanks her for meeting with him and considering him for Smackdown Live. Shane McMahon can’t get over their past, so that’s a problem. Stephanie says she’s running Smackdown Live. The Miz and Maryse walk up to her and can’t believe there is no press for their comeback. Kane mentions he’s been in a movie. Miz mocks his movie and says he’s a trained thespian while Kane looks like the Devil’s Favorite Insurance Agent. If Kane were running Smackdown, he’d have a huge problem with his Intercontinental Championship being gone for a month. The rules state that one has to vacate a title if it’s not defended for thirty days, so he’d book an Intercontinental Championship match. She says that’s a great idea and tells Miz his opponent will be a mystery. Miz looks disgusted. Kane says they should do lunch sometime and walks off.
Coming up next, we’ll see John Cena take on Seth Rollins. If Cena wins, he’ll be put into the WWE Championship match at WWE Battleground.

The Highlight Reel with special guests Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens
Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring wearing his trademark scarf. The crowd gives him a mixed reception. Jericho says, “Quiet” over and over again until he really upsets the crowd. This is The Highlight Reel and they will be quiet because he has a lot to say tonight. This will be a wild one because his two guests have no regard for each other. They’re hell-bent on ruining their own careers even taking each other out at Money in the Bank allowing Dean Ambrose, the man that put 69 thumbtacks into his body, to win. They’re ruining their own lives and now his own. He’ll get to the bottom of it tonight. Jericho first introduces Kevin Owens to the ring. After Owens gets in the ring, Jericho introduces Sami Zayn to the ring.

Owens and Zayn stare at each other in disgust. The crowd is singing Zayn’s theme song before singing “Olé.” Jericho says he senses something is going to happen between them, so he had the Jeritron raised. Jericho says they didn’t always hate each other because Zayn was the best man at Owens’ wedding. That must have made it even worse when Owens stabbed him in the back over and over again. Zayn says he knows what Jericho is trying to do, but he won’t play that game. He’s here to put an end to this. This rivalry has become an obsession and it’s costing them their careers. Zayn’s career is going nowhere and neither is Owens’. The reason Owens didn’t win the Royal Rumble is because of him. The reason Owens lost at WrestleMania is because of him. The reason Owens didn’t win Money in the Bank is because of him. They need to do this at Battleground. On July 19, they might be drafted to two different shows, so this needs to end at Battleground. Owens just stares at him. Zayn says this is the real Kevin Owens. The real Kevin Owens is a coward that hides behind lies. Owens has said him stabbing him in the back was a business move. Zayn demands to know the real reason. Zayn thinks it’s because he resents him and is mad he got signed by WWE before him. Zayn tells him to grow a set and say it to his face.

A “Grow a set” chant breaks out. Owens comes forward with the microphone. Owens says, “I have already told you the truth many times. You may not like it, but that doesn’t make it not true.” Owens says it was the right move for his career. Zayn talks about how he ruined their friendship, but Zayn is really to blame. Everything they’ve done since they met was to get to WWE. They fought together and against each other in the hopes of making it here. When WWE came calling and Zayn signed here a year and a half before he did, was he upset that he didn’t wait for him and made the right call for his career? No, he was happy for him. Zayn wasn’t happy when he got to the WWE. Owens’ success came out Zayn’s expense. What kind of friend does that make Zayn? That proves that he was always a better friend to Zayn than Zayn was to him. None of that matters now. Zayn wants to settle this at Battleground, so he’s got it. Owens drops the microphone.

Jericho says this a huge match for Battleground. Jericho says Zayn is a terrible friend. He’s a terrible friend and a terrible example of what it takes to make it in WWE. Even though Owens will never be as great as him because he’s the best in the world at what he does, he’s still trying to follow his example. Zayn has his head up his rear end caring about what the fans think. The fact that Zayn doesn’t realize that makes him sick. It makes him want to slap his stupid idiot face, but he won’t because Owens will at Battleground. Their match is big, but not as big as what Jericho will do at Battleground. The match being announced on his show makes it bigger, so they’re welcome. Jericho then gives the crowd the gift of Jericho and tells them to drink it in. Zayn and Owens give him a double superkick. They stare at each other, and Owens simply walks off.

Replays are shown of the opening segment of the night. We then see highlights of the Cena/Rollins match. Cena nearly had it won before The Club cost him the match.

Coming up next, The Miz will defend the WWE Intercontinental Championship against a mystery opponent.

JoJo is backstage with Dean Ambrose. She asks if being the WWE Champion is everything he expected. Ambrose says it’s been good, but it hasn’t been everything he expected. He expected a parade outside WWE Headquarters, but you need permits for that. Ambrose likes stepping into the ring against the best and getting to fight all the time. Tonight, he has AJ Styles. Stephanie McMahon walks up. Ambrose asks if she wants an autograph. She says it is appalling to think he’s WWE Champion and the face of her company.

Kingston says John Cena already got the local pop. Big E says he was born here at Tampa General Hospital. Kingston says the outfits The Wyatts wear are crazy. Who would wear this? Who? Who? Xavier Woods says they should wrap it up, but Kingston and Big E says this is a roast.
The Wyatt Family’s music hits, and the real Wyatt Family comes out to the stage. Woods is acting differently following his possible possession last week on RAW. Wyatt says all praise to the Power of Positivity. The masses line up like ravenous dogs because they tell them everything they want to hear. It is rare that what they want to hear is what they need to hear. Wyatt says the crowd can vilify him, but his purpose is to tell them what they need to hear. The world is not made up of unicorns and rainbows. It is a cruel world filled with dangerous people. How can the Power of Positivity help a man that lost his job and put food on the table for his starving children? Kingston says the Power of Positivity is not a lie: it’s a way of life. Big E says it’s a song and movement. It flows through your body. It’s something Wyatt would know nothing about. Wyatt asks Woods what he thinks. Woods gets a faraway look on his face. Wyatt says Woods looks shaken. Woods can confide and trust in him. Big E asks if Woods is fine. Wyatt says they’re just playing games, except in this game there are not winners or losers.

The Club pulls John Cena off the apron and takes him out. Ambrose hobbles toward them. Seth Rollins gets in the ring and gives Ambrose a Pedigree. Cena tries to fight off Gallows and Anderson until Styles joins in and overwhelms him. Styles mounts Cena and punches away at him. Gallows and Anderson then give him the Magic Killer on the stage! The Club stands over Cena and talks trash. Back in the ring, Rollins gives Ambrose another Pedigree. Rollins picks up the WWE Championship and puts his foot on Ambrose while holding up the title. On the stage, The Club also raises up their arms.

Yeah I don't Care if you disagree

So some NXT sheep has been coming on the page lately commenting insulting me because I'm not praising Bayle or Nia Jax. Look man I'm not going to purplish your comments and I'm not about to change my mind on those two until something changes.

If you don't like the fact I'm going to hype TNA (which if putting on great shows and has the best roster in wrestling BTW0 and or that I'm going to be honest in who I feel about WWE in its current state than go else where. There are plenty of other sites that are willing to join the Kiss My Ass club.

Vince Russo Claims He Tried To Go Behind TNA’s Back To Get Power

In a new podcast, Vince Russo said that he contacted both Pop TV’s Bradley Schwartz and Destination America behind TNA’s back to get a consultant job to fix what he thought was wrong with Impact Wrestling. Both times, he claimed that the networks didn’t know what a good wrestling show was, so he decided to help out and show them what good wrestling looked like. He said Pop TV was “sold a bill of goods” when they acquired TNA’s programming and he could “fix” it. Neither network hired him.

Disco Inferno, a guest on the show, pointed out that it was a jerk move for Russo to go behind TNA’s back. Russo claimed he did it because he had friends in TNA and he knew the show would be cancelled if he didn’t come in to fix things. Disco Inferno said that Russo also offered to be a consultant for Lucha Underground and he’s trying to get someone to pay him to watch and critique wrestling shows. He said Russo was a heel.

Opinionated View- Man this sounds like a real slim ball move. And "Fix" what? Because right now TNA is putting on some really strong shows and storylines.

Update on Plans for WWE Women’s Division and NXT Superstar Call-Ups for WWE Brand Extension

– PWInsider Elite has an update on the plan for the WWE women’s division with the upcoming brand extension, and potential NXT Superstars who could get called up to the next roster. The original plan was to reportedly keep the WWE women’s title on one brand, however recent reports indicate that there will be a women’s division on both rosters. The report does not specify if that means there will be a separate women’s title for RAW and another one for Smackdown.

In addition, for the upcoming WWE Draft, as many as 10-12 NXT Superstars are going to be called up to the main roster. Per the PWInsider report, there’s backstage talk of NXT stars Carmella, Nia Jax and Bayley all receiving main roster call-ups soon.

Opinionated View- Doesn't matter if it's on Raw or if its on Smackdown with the current way the WWE books it with the current fact they keep hiring models to push as top talent the women's division will suck.

Well when it comes to calling up 10-12 I'm not really sure if NXT has 10-12 talents ready to call up. Also knowing the WWE they won't be calling up 10-12 people that are truly ready. Hell Jax isn't even ready to be on NXT TV much less the main roster. Carmella and Bayley are ok at best but both have really annoying gimmicks.

Triple H Also Contacted Kota Ibushi to Appear in the Cruiserweight Classic

It was reported by Enuhito that Finn Balor contacted Kota Ibushi about competing in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic. However, Enuhito is also reporting that someone else who personally contacted Ibushi about taking part in the tournament was none other than WWE’s Triple H. \

According to the report, Ibushi originally turned down the offer from WWE in order to work on his own projects. However, after receiving a personal call from Triple H and having a conversation with him, he opted to accept the offer.

Currently, it’s still unknown if Ibushi will be joining NXT or the main roster after the Cruiserweight Classic.

6/24 WWE NXT Spoilers

Tye Dillinger beat an enhancement wrestler in the dark match. I didn’t catch the guy’s name, but he was Asian and has a gimmick that’s part Papa Shango, part Hakushi. Dillinger won with the fireman’s carry dropped over the knee.
Show One
1. Bayley pinned Alexa Bliss. These two worked hard and had a very solid match. Bayley won clean with her finisher. Bayley cut a promo post-match about getting back on track when she was interrupted by Nia Jax. Jax just walked to the ring, got in Bayley’s face, and then backed up the ramp.
2. The Hype Bros vs. Blake and Murphy when to a no-contest when Rhyno made his return with Gores all around.
3. The Revival beat American Alpha in a 2/3 falls match to retain the NXT Tag Team Championships. Alpha scored the first win with tandem ankle locks, Jordan in the ring and Gable at ringside. Revival got the second fall with an inverted figure-four on Jordan. Revival won the match with a surprise Shatter Machine on the apron.
Show Two:
Samoa Joe came out to cut a promo. He said he was there to witness Finn Balor vs. Shinsuke Nakamura. He said that he slayed the Demon Balor, and he’s the emperor to conquer the King of Strong Style. Rhyno interrupted to confront Joe, but Joe backed down.
1. Austin Aries squashed Patrick Clark. Aries won with the Last Chancery and then held onto the hold past the bell. Afterwards, No Way Jose ran down and put a beating on Aries until Aries ran out of the arena through the lobby.
2. Andrade Almas over Angelo Dawkins. Almas hit the double-knees and a split-legged moonsault for the win.
3. Asuka submitted Eva Marie to the Asuka Lock.
Show three:
1. Samoa Joe choked out Rhyno.
2. The Authors of Pain beat American Alpha. The Authors attacked Alpha while Alpha were making their entrance. After some delay, Alpha hit the ring and cleared the Authors before the match finally got underway. This appeared to be Alpha’s write-off from NXT.
3. Bayley pinned Nia Jax. This one went long at a pace that wasn’t exactly stellar. Bayley looked to be in trouble, but she scored the win after a Bayley-to-Belly from the second rope.
4. Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Finn Balor. This match will be edited into the second show taped. After a very good back-and-forth match with some excellent near-falls, Nakamura got the win with the Kinshasa. Post-match, the two hugged before Balor left the ring to Nakamura to close. Presumably after the show went off-air, Balor came back out with a couple bottles of water and the two gave a non-alcoholic Stone Cold salute. They did each other’s poses and Finn made his way around ringside to greet fans before the show closed with both guys at the top of the ramp delivering a “Yeaoh” and leaving together.

Card For Tonight's ROH PPV

Jay Lethal vs. Jay Briscoe for the ROH Title.
-The Addiction vs. The Motor City Machine Guns for the ROH Tag Titles.
-Bobby Fish vs. Dalton Castle for the ROH TV Title.
-Steve Corino vs. BJ Whitmer in a Fight Without Honor.
-Moose and War Machine vs. Adam Cole and The Young Bucks.
-Roderick Strong vs. Mark Briscoe.
-Kamaitachi vs. Kyle O’Reilly.
-Silas Young vs. ACH.

Opinionated View- AWFUL CARD! Lethal vs. Briscoe has sucked every other time they have done it so why do it again? Hell why the fuck is Jay Briscoe back in the main event I thought ROH has finally wised up and moved on from his awful matches. Doesn't help how far Lethal has fallen I mean it's sad to see how predictable this guy has become. Bad Influence vs. The Guns could have been good. but The Adduction has been so bungled in ROH its sad. Even winnig the tag belts it just feels like "Oh yeah we should do this match ahhh have them beat War Machine." Poor Fish guy has all the talent in the world and could be a great TV champion. But ROH being stupid delays him winning the belt so they could put it on random New Japan guy and now he's working with Castle a mediocre worker with an awful gimmick that's been done to death.

Well I guess ROH is finally following up on the ending of the last PPV to bad this match makes almost no sense. Cole and the Bucks didn't attack Moose and War Machine they attacked Lethal and Cabana. From a story telling stand point it would make more sense to no do a world title match and instead do something like Team Lethal vs. Bullet Club. Doesn't help Moose and War Machine might be the worse 3 man team you could make in all of wrestling. Zero charisma, zero in ring skill. Than you got the battle of the boring and the spot monkey in Strong vs. Briscoe.

Man O'Reily has fallen into the ROH blackhole. Where is clear he's one of the most talented guys on the roster. Yet the company instead of building him up is just putting him in random matches or as Eddie Edwards calls it "Pretty much my entire post world title reign career in ROH."  ACH who care.

Than finally you have the largest pile of shit match I think I have ever seen. Even worse ROH has been building to it for like three years. WHO THE FUCK WANTS TO SEE CORINO AND WHITMER IN 2016? I mean give me a damn break ROH has spent time building this up than any match ever. And why so we can see two guys so far past there prime Piper and Snuka at the Rumble made more sense.

6/23 WWE Cruiserweight Classic spoilers

WWE Cruiserweight Classic Taping
Live Updates from Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University

Before the taping, there were several incidents with either Full Sail or WWE staff. The arena was less than half-filled, so the staff squeezed everyone into the area opposite the hard cam and the first few rows. We had a large party of about 20 people and WWE’s head of security didn’t like us trying to sit together, and so we were informed that “we’re in his house” (which is odd considering that we were standing in the lobby of a university).

They also removed at least one fan, though I didn’t see the incident that led to it. Needless to say the WWE and Full Sail staffs were in full power-trip mode and it made for a very unpleasant experience.
They announced that there was an accident on I4 which caused a delay in fans arriving. About 15 minutes after the scheduled start time they kicked things off by bringing out Mauro Ranallo and then Daniel Bryan, who was warmly welcomed. Bryan cut a promo about the CWC and then they began the parade which streamed on WWE’s Facebook.

All of the matches taped tonight are first-round matches.
1. Gran Metalik over Alejando Saez. Metalik won with his Fireman’s Carry Driver.

2. Ho Ho Lun pinned Arya Daivari with a bridging German suplex.

3. Cedric Alexander beat Clement Petiot. Cedric hit the Lumbar Check for the pin.

4. Brian Kendrick defeated Raul Menzoda. Over the course of the match, Mendoza won the crowd over in a big way with a very impressive showing, but Kendrick submitted him with a Saka Otoshi.

5. Tajiri pinned Damian Slater. Tajiri hit the Buzzsaw Kick for the W.

6. TJP forced Da Mack to submit to a grapevine leglock.

7. Lince Dorado over Mustafa Ali. This match had some very fun stuff in it. Dorado won with a Shooting Star.

8. Akira Tozawa beat Kenneth Johnson. It really says something when you can’t have a good match with Tozawa and Johnson certainly did not. Tozawa won with a stalling German.

9. Zack Sabre Jr. tapped out Tyson Dux with Ode to Breaks.

10. Drew Gulak beat Harv Sihra by submission. Sihra tapped to Gulak’s Dragon Sleeper with bodyscissors.

11. Tony Nese over Anthony Bennett. Worst match of the show to this point by far. Nese won with a 450.

12. Kota Ibushi pinned Sean Malura. Ibushi won with the sit-out Last Ride.

13. Rich Swann defeated Jason Lee. Swann was very over with the crowd. He got the pin after his standing 450.

14. Noam Dar submitted Gurv Sihra to a kneebar.

15. Jack Gallagher beat Fabian Aichner. This was the most pleasant surprise of the night as both guys came in virtually unknown and put on a strong performance. Gallagher won with his high impact dropkick in the corner.

16. Johnny Gargano pinned Tommaso Ciampa. After a good back-and-forth match, Gargano surprised Ciampa with a crucifix pin.

That concluded the tapings, which will air over four weeks with four matches per show beginning July 13.
