Austin Aries Suffered Orbital Fracture, Out Until Next Year

– Austin Aries is out of action until early next year at the earliest. PWInsider reports that Ariea suffered a large orbital fracture from a kick at last week’s NXT house show by Shinsuke Nakamura.
The site reports that Aries will undergo surgery later this week and will be out of action until at least the first quarter of next year.

Judge Denies Billy Corgan’s Request For Injunction Against TNA

According to, the Nashville Chancery Court has denied Billy Corgan’s request for a temporary injunction against Dixie Carter, Serg Salinas, Dean Broadhead, Impact Ventures LLC. Due to the ruling, they have also dissolved Corgan’s temporary restraining order against the company.

This means that Corgan will not gain control of TNA and that the current management can move forward to make plans and choices for the company without his approval.

The site also reports that TNA will still have to repay Corgan’s loan of $1.8 million. That is unless Corgan chooses to convert that debt into a 36% ownership stake in the company.

Opinionated View- Well that doesn't mean it's over. It just means Corgan isn't being handed the control right now. He could still wind up buying it.

WWE Raw Preview

Opinionated View- Well this is going to suck. I'm sure we will get lame Halloween stuff like Rich Swan or Tony Neese going trick or treating. I don't give a damn about Goldberg. I have said it time and again over and over. I am sick of old guys from the MNW era still be pushed as top guys.

Andy is like Times New Roman font – as generic as it gets. Big Cass says they don’t mind getting their hands dirty and flipping him the “Larry Bird.” Big Cass says he’s going to go yard upside his head like he’s Big Papi. That gets a big pop in Boston. Enzo says this is Hell in a Cell and not Toy Story, but he has a strong feeling that when this night’s over, he’s going to call Big Cass “Woody” because he’ll have Andy tattooed on the bottom of his boot.

Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte for the RAW Women’s Title scheduled to main event tonight’s Hell in a Cell PPV

Despite some confusion following a Mick Foley post on Facebook and then a tweet by Vince McMahon causing some confusion earlier this week, Sasha Banks defending the RAW Women’s Championship against Charlotte will main event tonight’s Hell in a Cell PPV.

According to multiple wrestling media reports on Sunday, the plan was Banks and Charlotte to close the show tonight in Boston as of this morning. This would be the first time in WWE history that a women’s match would close a Pay Per View event.

Opinionated View- BULLSHIT BULLSHIT BULLSHIT! These matches are bad, the feud is stale and the only reason they are doing this is "History" but you know what! They have been plenty of cage matches with Women and plenty of shows women have main evented.

WWE Survivor Series expanding to four hours in November

The official listing for the upcoming WWE Survivor Series PPV on November 20 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada is now listing the show as beginning at 6:30 p.m. Eastern (5:30 CT), an hour earlier from the previously scheduled 7:30 start time. This means this year’s Survivor Series will be expanding to a four hour live show

Opinionated View- WWE can't do three hour with commercials for Raw. Four hours for a PPV is just insane. OH FOR GOD'S SAKE... It just hit me that means more time for Lesnar and Goldberg. Lesnar only does sloppy suplexes and Goldberg wasn't the most diverse guy at his peak now he's nearly 50 years old and hasn't wrestled in over a decade.

Update on Monday's Raw

– According to, WWE has been reaching out to “spooky” characters from the past for Monday’s Halloween edition of RAW.

Lesnar vs. Goldberg Set for Survivor Series announced on Tuesday that Brock Lesnar will face Goldberg at the WWE Survivor Series PPV on November 20 live from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

This match had been setup over the last few weeks on WWE television with the release of the WWE 2K17 video game, a challenge issued by Paul Heyman on behalf of Lesnar and Goldberg’s acceptance of the challenge last week on RAW.

Opinionated View- Again if think this is a good idea or want to even try and defend it for what ever jacked up reason THIS IS NOT THE SITE FOR YOU!

Billy Corgan wants Dixie Carter’s shares of TNA, lawsuit is arguing company is on the “brink of financial collapse”

A new report by Mike Johnson of on Tuesday revealed more details regarding Billy Corgan’s current lawsuit against TNA, Dixie Carter, Serg Salinas and CFO Dean Broadhead after unsealed documents were made public.

The main reason for the lawsuit by Corgan is that he is currently seeking Dixie Carter’s majority shares in the company (estimated at being 92.5% with Aroluxe Media owning 5% and Anthem Media owning the remaining 2.5%) over a breach of contract.

Corgan stated in the lawsuit that he initially invested into TNA back in June due to Impact Ventures (the parent company of TNA) being under “severe financial distress” and that by investing he was preventing “immediate foreclosure” to Aroluxe Media (the company’s current production provider). Carter structured a deal with Aroluxe back in April where TNA would pay back money owed through installments and if those payments were not made, she would lose control of the company. This exact scenario ended up taking place in June around the time of the Slammiversary PPV and led to Corgan beginning to invest.

Once again in July, Corgan invested money into the company to prevent Aroluxe from foreclosing on Carter and gaining control of TNA. Another scenario also played out in August, but by this point the agreement between TNA and Aroluxe had expired and Aroluxe was within the rights to foreclose “at any time.” According to the lawsuit, Corgan again stepped in and negotiated an “amended and restated loan agreement.” This was the same month that Corgan was appointed the new President of TNA and Carter was given the new title of Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer of Impact Ventures.
Corgan’s lawsuit argues that TNA is “continuing to flounder” and has been “taken to the brink of financial collapse” under Carter and other managers. It again reiterates that that TNA’s current secured creditors (Aroluxe and Anthem) “can foreclose at any time.” Corgan also revealed that he was essentially left in the dark regarding the company’s negotiations with Anthem Sports & Entertainment (the parent company of Fight Network) and that he was never made privy to any kind of conversation with WWE regarding the purchase of TNA’s video library dating back to 2002. Carter denies talks with WWE ever took place.

Anthem issued a press release last week stating publicly they were offering to “repay the loans made by Mr. Billy Corgan” and that they were “positioned to provide additional transitional assistance to the company.” Corgan is currently seeking some sort of a declaration from the court that he is now entitled to Carter’s 92.5% ownership, that he now retains her voting rights and has the ability to replace any current managers of his choosing. He is also seeking damages (to be determined by the court) for the breach of contract and is requesting an injunction preventing the defendants from making any kind of business decisions including selling any assests. A hearing is scheduled for tomorrow (October 26) regarding that temporary injunction in Nashville.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match
TJ Perkins (c) vs. Brian Kendrick
Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson

Opinionated View- Awful card. Banks and Charlotte is easily the most over done feud in all of wrestling. They have wrestled on TV like 60 million times and every single match has been bad. There is a reason I call her botchy banks because she botches even the most simple moves WWE had to a highlight video of her and all they had was botched moves. Charlotte isn't much better she doesn't botch but she doesn't do anything great Owens vs. Rollins is a great example of how to blow a can't miss feud. First it became all about fucking Stephanie and Triple H. Than you have it become about phone it in Jericho and his stupid list. I can't believe how WWE took a feud with arguably the two best wrestlers in the world and the two most over guys in the company and they blew it. I shouldn't have to explain why Reigns vs. Rusev will suck because will it's Reigns vs. Rusev enough said.

Rest of the card isn't any better. New Day is the most annoying gimmick in the world the matches are bad. Big is always awful and Kofi has become just bland. Sheamus and Cesaro are just boring. They really have blown the CW's and last night didn't help at all. Perkins came off extra bland and now Kendrick is begging for TJ to just let him win. WHAT? Enzo and Cass are just annoying and they get extra annoying on PPV. Finally why the hell should I care about Gallows and Anderson? WWE has booked them as two morons that can't win often get beat up when they  have a number advantage.

WWE Smackdown Preview

Scheduled for the show is the following:
* WWE World Champion AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose where if Ambrose wins he becomes the new No. 1 contender.
