Bray Wyatt & Matt Hardy Are Feuding On Twitter & Now All I Want Is To See Them In An Insane Backyard Wrestling Match

 

For those of you who have no idea what’s happening, let me catch you up. Matt Hardy is an insane ‘broken’ man who wanted to ‘delete’ (murder) his brother Jeff. They had an insane backyard wrestling match at Matt’s compound (his actual house) that was probably the best segment TNA has run in years. It wasn’t necessarily ‘good’, but it was crazy and Matt went all in on this character so you have to give them credit. Bray Wyatt, a cult leader who lives in a swamp, challenged the New Day to come to his compound (probably not his actual house) so he could fight them. It looked A LOT like the segment that Matt Hardy did, so people are now calling Bray a copy cat, and a bad one at that, since Hardy’s segment was admittedly a whole lot better. Bray jumped on Twitter to refute this claim, and it’s really fun to watch two good performers stay in character and feud on Twitter. All I want from this is Wyatt to show up to Hardy’s compound and burn his house down. Make this happen now.

Will Ferrell Knocked Out TNA Knockouts Champion Taryn Terrell With A Basketball At Last Night New Orleans Pelicans Game

If you’ve been on the internet today, there’s a solid chance you’ve seen this video, in which Will Ferrell throws a basketball at the face of a New Orleans Pelicans cheerleader during halftime of their game against the Lakers last night. For those who haven’t seen it, or saw it and thought Will Ferrell has finally lost it, the stunt was part of a scene for his new movie with Mark Wahlberg, Daddy’s Home. Thanks to the amazing people over at UPROXX, it turns out that the cheerleader who took the ball off the noggin’ and fell perfectly is none other than TNA Knockouts Champion Taryn Terrell. When I first saw the video, I wondered how an actress could take such a realistic bump, but now it all makes sense: that basketball off the skull is nothing compared to some of the shit Gail Kim has done to her in the past. If you don’t know who Taryn Terrell is, look her up, because she is pretty much the only reason I’ll watch TNA Impact.

Spike TV Will Not Renew TNA Impact! And The Future is Not Bright For TNA

TNA – The future of TNA’s Impact Wrestling is suddenly very murky. According to TMZ, Spike TV will not be renewing the popular wrestling show’s contract in October. 

We are still just in the rumor stages of this development, but WrestleZone.com’s Mike Killam also cited sources relaying the same information. Per Killam, Impact Wrestling will be canceled if it doesn’t get picked up by a new network “in a very short amount of time.”

This is potentially devastating news for TNA president Dixie Carter.

In hindsight, maybe this wasn’t their smartest move.

This is kind of sad. I never really enjoyed TNA on any level, and Twitter is having a field day with #TNAGOTCANCELLEDBECAUSE, but it’s sad for one large reason: competition. The Attitude Era was so great because WWE and WCW had to be great, or else they would fold. If you watch WCW during it’s final year (s), you can see why it folded: horrible, almost embarrassing storylines coupled with aging wrestlers taking the spotlight from hungry up and comers will never end well. But during the Monday Night Wars, wrestling was a must see event on a weekly basis. In WWE’s heyday, they ran an empty arena match featuring The Rock and Mick Foley during the SuperBowl halftime show. Can you imagine any wrestling promotion running an event against the SuperBowl now? But that’s how popular WWE, and wrestling as a whole, was back then. TNA never came close to the threat WCW was, but competition is always necessary, even in wrestling. WWE has one of their most talented rosters ever, and if the writers can get their shit together, it won’t matter what other promotions start up or continue. But WWE has a tendency to take the lazy route in regards to storytelling, especially when there isn’t another dog in the race. Let’s hope that doesn’t end up being the case now that TNA is falling fast.

CM Punk Took a Nose Dive On My Favorite Wrestlers List

CM_punkFor those of you not up on recent WWE happenings, CM Punk, the self proclaimed “best in the world”, has up and quit the WWE. Just straight walked out on operations the day after the Royal Rumble. Took his ball and went home, ala Stone Cold. No reason for it and, publicly, nobody has heard from him since. Past issues with Punk leads me to believe that he wasn’t happy with how the company was using him, and you know what, Punk? If that is the reason then you need to seriously reevaluate your situation. Between 2012 and 2013 nobody, and I mean nobody, was bigger in the WWE than CM Punk and his loud mouth manager, Paul Heyman. CM Punk owned the squared 3a6efa937abc88547391fe3ec2dd5879circle. Girls wanted him and guys wanted to be him. Somehow he thought that changed in the past few months. Got news for ya, it didn’t. Go ahead and replay any WWE event since Punk’s departure. “CM Punk” chants can be heard throughout the night, and to be honest it is ruining some of the best programming WWE has put on in years. Fans need to realize this is the fault of the WWE. WWE didn’t show Punk the door, neither did they want to, Punk walked out all on his own. Say what you will about Batista’s win at the Rumble, but HHH and Vince, like always, have a pulse on whats going on with the WWE Universe.

From what is rumored, Vince has been meeting with Punk. Which is gracious on his part. I would have told Punk to go fuck himself. Punk fell way off my list after this stunt.

PS- What are you going to do? Go wrestle for TNA? Only a matter of time before you shoot a funeral home promo. That’s when you know you’ve hit pro-wrestling rock bottom.

The Weirdest Woman in the World Sat Ringside at TNA Impact Last Night

 

Usually when something like this happens Twitter or the wrestling sites will have a funny blurb about this woman just standing awkwardly during the entire show. This time? Nothing. It’s almost as if noone noticed she was standing there. Not the fans, not the announcers, not even the people watching on TV. She wasn’t even facing the ring either. Just standing there with her purse with the side of her body facing the ring. And she did this for the entire two hour show. Maybe she’s never been to an event before, but you’d figure she’d get the hint after 10-15 minutes of being the only one standing. Bizarro world.

Monday Night Raw Recap – 9/16/13

And we’re live from Cleveland, Ohio!

995836_10151693807269683_468446516_n

[RAW opens up with the new WWE champion Daniel Bryan. HHH then brings out the referee from the WWE championship, Scott Armstrong, to talk about his “fast count”. Looks like we have the Chris Jericho screw job part 2.]

Daniel Bryan refuses to give up the title, as the crowd chants “NO”. As HHH tries to grab the title away from Bryan, Orton sneaks in for an RKO. Cleveland seemed less upset when Lebron left town. Orton stands tall in the ring as HHH leaves with the title.

[Dolph Ziggler vs. Dean Ambrose (Non Title)]

Ziggler wins with the Zig Zag. Dolph Ziggler might be in the best shape a human being can be in. Great back and forth in this match, and let’s hope this feud continues, because they put on terrific matches. I still haven’t decided if Dean Ambrose reminding me of a serial killer is a good or a bad thing.

[We come back from commercial and Steph McMahon is laying the guilt trip on Show pretty heavily, as usual]

r-truth-vs-fandango-raw-august-12-2013-620x350

[Fandango vs. R Truth]

R Truth grabs the momentum early on. Fandango quickly rallies back and goes for the quick pin. 2 count. Fandango has really gotten comfortable in the ring during Monday Night Raw and playing to the crowd has always been his strong point. Momentum back to Truth, who has really stood the test of time in the WWE. Hasn’t lost a step. Fandango hits the big leg drop off the top rope and pins Truth for a 3-count. Sweet, sweet Summer Rae, be my wife.

[Dusty Rhodes is shown backstage with Booker T and some of the talent. “The American Dream” will take the mic next!]

Never forget:

DustyRhodes_2037

Dusty Rhodes’ theme song is still top 3 all time. Also, his forehead is haunting. Always a strong segment when you fit a Bed Bath & Beyond reference in there. Stephanie makes Dusty decide between Dustin and Cody’s career. This a great twist to the storyline. Gives this story an entirely different dynamic. SiERRA HOTEL INDIA ECHO LIMA DELTA! Here comes The Shield! Dusty may earn another slice to that forehead after this is over. And now here comes the Big Show. This is now the weirdest combination of people ever. Steph orders Big Show to knock out Dusty. The Big Show being poor is now my favorite storyline of all-time. Steph says if Show doesn’t knock out Dusty, The Shield will beat him with chairs. Not the ideal situation to be stuck in. Big Show knocks out Dusty. I’ve seen the Big Show cry way too often this month. Dusty was great in this segment.

[6 Diva tag match – Brie Bella, Funkadactyls vs. Alicia Fox, Aksana & Layla]

Brie_Bella

AJ and Natalya were on commentary. This match was super short. Probably a good thing.

SANDOW

[Sandow vs. RVD]

Sandow comes out with his briefcase, and RVD comes out with his personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez. I like Ricardo, I really do, but how long can this personal ring announcer thing go for him? Quick match, RVD hits the insane frog splash off the top rope

[HHH fires referee Scott Armstrong]

[Randy Orton vs. The Miz]

miz orton

The Miz is the hometown boy tonight, and he gets a good ovation from the crowd. He goes over to kiss his mom and dad who are easily the weirdest looking couple in the world.

Orton attacks The Miz, much to the chagrin of Mr. Miz’s two chins. Segment ends with DDT on the outside, following a knee to the back of Miz’s head while it was locked in a chair. I can’t stop rewinding back to the part with Miz’s parents. Scary face city.

{Paul Heyman promo with Ryback]

Great promo by Heyman, who came out clean shaven but in a wheelchair. selling the caning by Punk the night before. Ryback speaks and says he doesn’t like bowleys. Whatever that is. Heyman seals the promo with a kiss on the check, and now we will forever have this photo:

[Tag Team Turmoil: Uso’s vs. Tons of Funk vs. Real Americans]

Really good match. Cool spot with Tensai delivering a delayed suplex to Cesaro. Tons of Funk eliminated first. Cesaro then pulls of the big swing, reminiscent of last week vs. Santino. He really needs a push. The Uso’s ass to the face has to be low on the list I’d move I’d wanna take. Nice ending sequence: Jimmy Uso is on the top rope, and Jay Uso tags in just as Swagger runs up and throws Jimmy to the mat. Jey Uso then frog splashes Swagger for the win. I’m starting to believe Zeb Colter is an actual racist.

[Daniel Bryan vs. Roman Reigns]

bryan reignsjpeg

Great match. Reigns seems to get better as the weeks go by. Bryan had Reigns in the “Yes lock” but Orton interfered. The rest of The Shield join Orton in the ring and beat down Bryan. Orton goes to the outside and grabs a chair to finish the job on Bryan. Out comes the locker room for the save! Reigns hits a HUGE spear on Kofi, but The Shield are finally outnumbered. Ziggler hits a fame-asser on Ambrose, and RVD nails Reigns with a reverse spin kick. Daniel Bryan hits the flying knee on Rollins as the superstars put Bryan on their shoulders and we go off the air.
