Here is a spoiler:

Nope, Big Show is fine and will probably be the next in line as Cena's opponent. The firing is just a part of Laurinaitis' plan. Big Show turned heel tonight to help Laurinaitis win, which is fine since Show was already "fired".

The spoiler ends.

I guess whatever takes Cena out of the title picture is a good thing. I am annoyed with how they are using ziggler nowadays.

WWE is planning to bring back the WWE Cruiserweight Division. Alex Shelley of TNA will be one of the key players in the next Cruiserweight tournament.

Ric Flair really wants to return to the WWE.

Exclusive: More on Flair/TNA Parting Ways, Flair Goes Off Script

Quote:
According to a source within TNA, a major issue which lead to tension between Ric Flair and TNA, and could potentially be one reason why Flair left the company, was the handling of the Gut Check segment on Impact featuring Alex Silva.

WZ has learned that Flair went off the script when he chose Silva as the winner, which is now causing issues for TNA as not only did Flair go into business for himself, but Silva is from Quebec, requiring TNA to spend more time and money getting him a U.S. Visa if they want to use him with any amount of regularity.

Ric Flair trolled TNA.

Chris Jericho has been suspended indefinitely due to an irresponsible act of denigrating the Brazilian flag at a WWE live event in São Paulo on May 24. WWE has apologized to the citizens and the government of Brazil for this incident.

Alex Shelley is the next Chris Jericho. He's not only a good wrestler, but the guy is good on the mic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Shelley

Shelley vs. Mysterio will be an excellent feud.

Another bad move by TNA in letting Shelley go. The MCMG's are/were the best tag team in the business.

Shelley wants to be a bigger wrestling star. He wants to follow in the footsteps of Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. They were former ROH/TNA Wrestlers, but they became a much bigger star in the WWE. CM Punk is the current World Champion while Bryant was a former World Champion.

Shelley is already good on the mic, and a very charismatic wrestler. He will become a good heel in the WWE.

ohhhh snap! That's some bullshit right there. Jericho was just being a classic heel and gets in legit trouble for it.

(if you don't wanna click the link, WWE was doing a show in Brazil and a fan threw a flag at him, he crumbled it up and kicked it which is illegal in Brazil so he's been suspended and will be off TV indefinitely)

I recall Sgt Slaughter lighting the US flag on fire, HBK and Triple H blowing their noses and wiping their asses with the Canadian flag...but Jericho does this and get penalized? Hopefully WWE is just doing this to stay in the good graces of Brazil while they're there and they lift the suspension as soon as they get back

Different times. They're a publicly traded company now, they can't do anything to alienate/upset pepole. The problem usually is that wrestling fans know he's doing it as part of the show, but the media will pick it up and run with it (despite their constant callings that wrestling is "fake"), so they get him to apologize and suspend him before it blows up in their faces. Same with Fit Finley getting fired because he had The Miz interupt the national anthem, or CM Punk getting in trouble cause he called a guy in the crowd a homo (He probably would have been suspended for that if he wasn't champ).

I hope the WWE won't change the name of Alex Shelley. Bryan Danielson became Daniel Bryan.

Of course they will, unless he signs over all the rights to it, which he'd be a fool to do.

Will AJ Lee Hook up with Kane? She's currently on CM Punk's corner.
