    Post up latest wrestling news on here.....simple lol


    Randy Orton suffered a legitimate concussion at WWE's Smackdown house show from Madrid, Spain on Sunday. The injury occurred during the triple-threat main event match for the World Heavyweight title against Christian and Sheamus. Orton was asked on Twitter why he didn't wrestle on RAW, to which he replied:

    "because I was knocked out in Spain. U can't wrestle, or should i say, perform, the day after a concussion."

    In case Orton is not medically cleared to wrestle Christian at Sunday's Capitol Punishment pay-per-view, the concussion angle WWE ran on RAW will be the explanation.

    In the event that a WWE performer suffers a concussion, WWE's Wellness policy requires that hey must pass an Impact Concussion Test.







    The latest update on CM Punk's status with WWE is that he is still planning on taking a leave of absence once his contract expires this year. Those close to the RAW Superstar say he feels like he hasn't been treated like a "top guy," which will factor in his decision.

    The Ultimate Warrior has responded to a recent online rumor that he used to work as a male escort in the Atlanta, GA area. The rumor says he used to be an escort in the 1980s before joining the wrestling business. A fan asked Hogan about this on Twitter over the weekend and he responded with the following: “he was more than a male escort. You guys figure it out. HH”

    Warrior then responded with the following tweet of his own, taking yet another shot at Hulk and Linda: "Warrior God for ULTIMATE time. Demand is HIGH. Escort limited to pro-wrestlers wives. Reserve right to refuse service. No, HH. Linda, no."

    -- In a story about WWE Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine on WWE.com, they point out that he will be heading to FCW to "fine tune his skills."

    -- Trevor Murdoch told Pitch.com that he was returning to WWE after doing his final indy show for MPW this Friday. I've been doing this since I was 18 years old. So I'm at an age where when I went to WWE the first time, I was 25 years old, and I'm really excited that I'm still at a young enough age that I'm going to be able to go back and do some good things on TV. My [5-year-old] son is now old enough to see me and understand that daddy is on TV, and he loves pro wrestling. So I'm fired up to be able to get back to working on TV again for sure., he said. We'll have a more update on this later today (Thursday).




    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson continues to tease John Cena online as he compared the WWE Superstar to the Disney character Goofy while at Disneyland yesterday.

    He posted a photo of himself alongside Goofy with the caption reading: "Just bumped into John Cena! I was gonna knock the goofy off his ass, but I'll save that ass whuppin for Wrestlemania."



    TNA sent out the following today…

    On Thursday's IMPACT WRESTLING on SpikeTV at 9/8c, the first-ever "Bound For Glory Series" will be officially announced. There will be 12 Superstars participating in the ongoing competition, all leading to our biggest Pay-Per-View of the year in October!

    As an online exclusive, the 12 participants in the "Bound For Glory Series" are:

    Rob Van Dam
    AJ Styles
    Gunner
    Bully Ray
    Crimson
    James Storm
    Matt Morgan
    Devon
    Scott Steiner
    The Pope
    Bobby Roode
    Samoa Joe

    Skip Sheffield was spotted last week in Tampa, Florida on crutches and his leg in a cast. The former member of Nexus underwent a third surgical procedure last Tuesday, which he vowed on Twitter would be his last. He hasn't appeared on television since breaking his leg and ankle on August 18, 2010 at a WWE live event in Honolulu, Hawaii.



    On July 23rd, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart will be appearing at the WWE SmackDown!.



    Former WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus was backstage at last night's TNA Wrestling live event at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario. Stratus lives nearby and was visiting former WWE peers who now work for the organization.

    Stratus indicated on her Twitter account that Mickie James, Tara and Winter slept over at her house.

    Randy Orton announced on his Twitter page that he had passed the Impact test. Therefore, he is clear to wrestling at the Capitol Punishment Pay-Per-View in Washington, D.C.


    The Los Angeles Times has an article up that looks at Shane McMahon's new business venture, "You on Demand", forming a partnership with Warner Bros. McMahon also talks about his decision to leave WWE and why it was very hard for him.

    The article notes that "rising high up the executive ranks, McMahon was seen as a potential successor to his father. There was only one problem. "He wasn't going anywhere," he said and laughed.

    "It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make. I didn't want to wake up when I was 70 and say, 'I should have done that.' It's still hard."

    McMahon added that there is still some "residual tension" over his decision to leave the company.

    When asked if he'd be striking any deals with his father for WWE content on You on Demand, McMahon cracked, "I don't know, I'm a tough negotiator."



    -- To follow up on an earlier report stating that Mick Foley's current deal with TNA expires in September, Foley actually requested to be released early from his deal and TNA has verbally agreed to do so, but nothing had been finalized as of last week. There have also been no talks between Foley and WWE as of this writing. That's not to say he won't wind up back in WWE at some point but it won't be happening anytime soon. There are a ton of false rumors out there.


    According to TNA's website, at AAA's TripleMania show, Jeff Jarrett, along with wife Karen in his corner, beat El Zorro last night to become the Heavyweight Champion of Mexico. I'm guessing TNA will be promoting this on their television.

    Vickie Guerrero spoke to Kevin Eck of the Baltimore Sun to promote tomorrow night's WWE Capitol Punishment pay-per-view event in Washington D.C. as well as Monday's RAW in Baltimore, Maryland. She discussed numerous topics including how her recognizable catchphrase came out, Eddie Guerrero's influence on her career, her significant weight loss, her weight being lampooned on WWE programming, and more.

    Guerrero reveals that her trademark saying, "Excuse Me!", came by accident one night at a television event.

    "That was just a fluke," Guerrero says. "I think I probably forgot my lines one night and just kept saying 'excuse me' to remember what I had to say next, and the fans just got louder. I tried it a couple more times and we thought, let's stay with it and see where it goes. Now I sign all my autographs with 'excuse me.'"

    Guerrero says Eddie Guerrero is the inspiration behind her heel character as she learned how to cut an effective promo from watching him perform.

    She says, "I think it goes back to watching Eddie do promos [wrestling monologues] in the living room and in the bathroom for 15 years. The louder I can get the fans and the angrier they are at me, the more it fuels the fire in me to just push them to the edge even more. It's a high."

    Numerous insults have been levied at Guerrero over the years regarding her weight. Despite losing more than 50 pounds since last year, the jokes about her being overweight have continued to linger on WWE programming. She, however, feels it comes with territory.

    "The jokes have helped grow my character to what it is," she said. "I just kind of roll with it and leave it behind me when I leave the arena. Again, there's the character and then there's the real person. You can't take what's going on at work personally."

    She continues, "They really didn't bother me. Well, I guess they did to an extent, but not to where I was feeling bad about myself. It was who I was. We have beautiful women that work with us, and when I was in the locker room with them and we're dressing and stuff, I would look at them and be like, 'Oh, this is ridiculous. I'm going to change.’ I wanted to feel good being a part of their group and to live a lifestyle that was going to be promoted with the WWE. Now when they say the jokes, it's like, "Whatever.'"

    Guerrero attributes her significant weight loss to exercise and a stringent diet.

    She says, "I've lost 52 pounds. My secret was to stop eating all the junk food after leaving the arenas. I never really trained the first four years I was with WWE, so I wasn't happy with how I looked and I wanted to have some improvement, so I found a personal trainer and also started doing the nutrition side of it. I'm really happy with the results, and I probably have like 20 more pounds to go. You cut out breads; you cut out all the junk food. I don't drink any more sodas. I just eat healthy chicken and steak and rice. I don't have any fried foods. I do have my cheat days and I look forward to them because you have to enjoy life. It's so bad at our catering at work because our dessert table is bigger than our entrée table, so I save my Mondays and Tuesdays for a piece of cake or something that’s sweet. That's my reward if I work hard during the week."

    According to a source, as of the end of March 2011, WWE was owed $10.2 million by several pay-per-view distributors. They are owed for events that have already taken place. This just goes to show you how big the delay is for all companies that run events on PPV.

    -- The Ultimate Warrior posted a tweet to The Rock in response to a message that The Rock was "winning" against all the rides that he went on during a Disneyland trip: "That's MY Ride, young man. All these years you are kicking ass and NOW you and I have something to battle over! Who wins? Destiny.."



    WWE's creative team has a VERY busy next few weeks ahead of them. Following the three-hour Monday Night RAW and SmackDown! tapings this past week on 6/13 and 6/14, the company has the Capitol Punishment PPV tonight, another three-hour RAW this Monday, SmackDown! tapings on Tuesday and then must prepare for double RAW tapings on 6/27 in Las Vegas and the double SmackDown! tapings on 6/28 (Phoenix) and 6/29 (Tucson). The team will be given time off after that, which will include the July 4th holiday weekend while the WWE crew heads overseas for a tour of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Of course, this means it'll be crazy busy on our websites as well. Stay tuned and check back in often!!

    -- Batista officially opened his MMA gym yesterday in Tampa, Florida. MyFOXTampaBay.com ran a story on the grand opening.

    Joanie "Chyna" Laurer has been on a recent media blitz promoting her newest XXX video released through Vivid. She appears to be telling a completely different story as it pertains to her dealings with TNA recently.

    Despite "Chyna" telling TMZ that TNA informed her that if her XXX video was released they wouldn't user her anymore, she then told Brian Fritz of The Baltimore Sun last week she hadn't even talked with TNA since doing her TV and PPV appearance.

    Chyna added they never talked about a deal with her and that bringing her back to wrestling would require an "incredible deal" - something TNA wasn't offering. For what it's worth, TNA has absolutely no plans to use her again with the release of this new porn.





    Sean Waltman has a new blog up, discussing the recent Hogan vs. Warrior drama. Here are some highlights…

    "I think it's hypocritical to mention Hulk's catch phrase of "A day without pot is like a day without sunshine." without mentioning your famous "prayer" sessions at the arenas, which was code for smoking pot. As far as the "juvi juice" you're referring to, which for everyone that doesn't know, was a supplement you could buy over the counter at supplement stores called Renutrient & other names. It was Furanone Dyhydro (a chemical precursor to GHB) and I promise you Terry Bollea did not introduce it to the wrestling business. Tons of people in wrestling used it at the time. People that never drank or did any other drugs were even using it at the time. Yes it was very powerful. It's no longer available, but at the time was totally legal. So Hulk Hogan didn't control the "juvi juice" supply for the wrestling business. Guys in both companies did it.

    All of this kind of high and mighty preaching of morality is why the people shit on you when you did go to WCW. Maybe it is an example of the decay of society, but people don't want to be preached to. Like I said before, I think the vast majority of people do not care whether Hulk let someone else bang his wife any more than they care whether you were a gay prostitute in the past. Except for the fact that you made some statements, while speaking at a college, that many people viewed as anti-gay. If the accusations were ever found to be true & now your rhetoric is anti-gay, then that might raise a few eyebrows. I hope there's more to your book than just exposing Hulk's dirty laundry."

    John Cena tweeted the following today: "The divide between those who stand with us and those who stand against us is becoming more aggressive," Cena wrote. "I love it. I think it makes for an unreal WWE experience. I have never told anyone how they need to feel about me, nor badgered them for there admiration. But I am truly fortunate and thankful for all those who remain loyal, through good times and bad, dark and light. I will never give up on you."
