Card Subject to Change

Mickie James Injured

WWE Raw Diva Mickie James is currently suffering from a hyperextended elbow, which has caused her some discomfort and numbness. Due to the injury, she's being used sparingly, but still working because WWE heavily relies on her to help layout the matches, keep the matches going and the fans interested at shows. James is expected to be given some time off from house shows as a result. The injury occurred during the recent European tour, which is why she was taken out of matches except as referee or timekeeper. James believes she is okay enough to work, but officials are being careful as she is invaluable to the division. Trainers feel she should rest another week or two before moving back into regular action.

NO WOMAN COULD EVER BEAT A MAN. They also said they Beau James had given them permission to hurt Misty if needed.

Misty came out alone. She said that this was not only a big match but she had a lot of pressure on her to make a good showing and that she knew she need a partner that would get down and dirty and do what ever it took to win.

The crowd started the 5 more minutes chant. Rebecca got on the mic and said she came here to prove a point that woman can compete with men.And she planned on it being a one time deal but now she is mad and plans on staying around until she can get the three of them in a match. The girls challenged the guys for any two of them to have a match with them Christmas Night and that the other please come to ring side so they can keep and eye on them and they would bring some one to be in their corner.

The guys said ok and said who you going to get one of these fat women and pointed to the front row. Maybe that old lady in the second row or even better yet one of these rednecks. Misty said no she already had some one in mind and he was coming that night to give her an award and she said she knew he would be happy to be in her corner and that it was not a woman but he is like these people that comes to the matches he is the original people's champion and he knows how to fight because he is the leader of the street people she was talking about "Handsome" Jimmy "Boogie Woogie Man" Valiant.

Stephanie McMahon Gets New Title in WWE

Stephanie McMahon's official title in WWE has been changed. In her bio on the WWE Corporate site, it previously read "Executive Vice President, Creative Writing, Talent Relations & Live Events." The title now reads "Executive Vice President, Creative Development & Operations." Her executive bio reads as follows: "Stephanie McMahon Levesque is WWE's Executive Vice President, Creative Development & Operations. She is responsible for overseeing the creative process for all television and pay-per-view programming as well as directing and producing at WWE televised events. In addition, she oversees all aspects of talent management and branding. Her prior position was Senior Vice President, Creative Writing."


PWI Advises Orton to Quit Smoking & Stay Out of Trouble

The latest issue of Pro Wrestling Illustrated has an article examining Randy Orton, which notes his smoking habit. The article suggests he could improve his stamina in the ring if he quit the habit. They wrote: "He's always had an impressive physique but only recently got serious about doing more intensive cardiovascular training. Quitting smoking could also help to improve his stamina." The magazine also noted his checkered behavioral history and said he's going to have stay out of trouble for an extended period time before WWE can fully trust him. They wrote: "Orton is going to have to stay on the straight and narrow outside the ring for a lengthy period of time before he can be fully trusted as someone WWE can rely upon to be one of its centerpiece talents. Fairly or unfairly, there are those who wonder if he's capable of abiding by WWE's behavioral expectations for the long haul. To his credit, Orton has acknowledged that he's brought those doubts on himself -- a hopeful sign that he's finally ready to reserve his bad boy persona for the ring."


More on McMahon's Hatred of Hogan's Show and the Legal Battle between Vince & Brutus Beefcake

As reported earlier in the week, Vince McMahon is not particularly fond of the Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling program airing on CMT. McMahon was extremely angry after watching the show during a recent flight. Following the viewing, McMahon called John Laurinaitis and ordered him to tell everyone involved with the show that they are no longer welcome in WWE. He doesn't even want them visiting shows or talking with his company's wrestlers. Many in WWE are not happy with the program as they believe it exposes the wrestling business. As a result of McMahon's decree, Jimmy Hart will apparently not be used by WWE anymore. Hart has made a countless number of appearances promoting WWE in the past few years and has always been willing to help out the company in any way. He's almost always at the the annual Road to Wrestlemania tour events held in local malls. Hart is off the tour and officials are claiming they will never use him again. It should be noted that Hart asked WWE permission to be involved with the show, and they said yes.
Here is more on the Brutus Beefcake situation.

WWE attorney Jerry McDevitt issued a cease and desist letter to former WWE performer Ed Leslie on October 27 ordering him to not use the "Brutus Beefcake" name anymore. The legal letter is as a result of Leslie's involvement with Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling. WWE never allowed Leslie to use the Beefcake ring name in any competitive situation, which led to him using a number of ring names during his tenure in World Championship Wrestling including Brother Bruti, The Butcher, The Man With No Name, The Zodiac, The Booty Man, and The Disciple.

Leslie's side said WWE hasn't used the name on television since 1993 and that a requirement for a trademark to stay valid is acting it in commerce. Although, WWE issued a Brutus Beefcake action figure two years ago, which is usage in commerce. The trademark for the Beefcake name for usage in toys and sporting goods in the year 1993 was finally canceled by WWE in 2000. Leslie's side argued that he's been using the name on the independent wrestling scene since 2000, and WWE never sent a cease and desist letter before. He also sold his own merchandise using the name without any complaints from WWE. Leslie's side said he signed a deal with Jakks Pacific, independent of WWE, which worked with WWE, to issue a Brutus Beefcake action figure under the WWE brand and WWE was aware the rights to the Beefcake name were separate from a WWE deal.

On WWE's side, they're saying Leslie reached a lawsuit settlement with them in 1995 and he agreed that he would never use the name, or a similar name, in the future. Of course, Leslie has used the ring name for the past eight years, which could be considered a violation of the agreement, but WWE had not addressed it until now.

While people believe WWE is simply looking to protect their trademarks, it really has more to do with Vince McMahon going on a warpath against a show he hates in which he has vowed that anyone involved in the program will never work for his company. Also, WWE threatened to try and get an injunction against Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling programs airing where Leslie's referred to as Brutus Beefcake, but it's highly unlikely that anything will happen there.

Remember This? Jerry "The Ring" Lawler

From JR's Blog

Thanksgiving reminds me of the time that the King and I rode on the WWE float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade years ago televised at that time by NBC. The King was so motivated to be a part of this American institution that he actually wore a warm coat, Lawler hates outer wear, and as we turned the corner to go in front of the NBC broadcast position "it" happened. Al Roker said there is the WWE represented by so and so including the Monday Night Raw broadcast duo of Good Ol J.R. Jim Ross and Jerry "The RING" Lawler. Not the "King" but the "RING" which throughly pissed off the King and he uttered a long list of profanities directed toward the NBC weatherman for several, freezing blocks. To this very day, if the subject is brought up we get a laugh out of it. Surely, no one will be brazen enough to bring any signs to Raw that would say, Jerry "The RING" Lawler, would they??

Linda's Boyfriend Tried to Get Restraining Order on Hogan

Linda Hogan's 19-year-old boyfriend Charley Hill tried to get a restraining order against Hulk Hogan, but a Florida court doesn't believe Hulk is out to get Charlie and has denied the request. Charley claimed Hulk "dangerously followed" him in his car a couple weeks ago and "pulled up next to him and stared at him" at a stoplight -- a crime in no states. Charley says he "fears [Hogan] will attempt to injure or kill him" because Linda is his girlfriend. The aspiring seaman also claims Hulk tailgated him and intimidated him on another occasion, and thinks Hulk is even more dangerous because he had weapons charges against him in 1979. Hulk's Hogan's lawyer David Houston tells, "This is just another blatant attempt by Linda Hogan to try to defame Hulk Hogan's character. We commend the judge on seeing through this ridiculous stunt and denying these baseless claims."


NBW Moving to Newbern, TN

NBW will be having their final show at the NBW Arena in Dyersburg, TN Saturday night. The following Saturday night they will begin a new chapter running at the RWL Arena in Newbern, TN. I had the chance to talk to NBW booker Jeremy Moore earlier yesterday and he seems to be happy to be in Newbern. He is excited about running the new building. This building has a really nice setup and hopefully they can pull it off.

As always, when it comes to wrestling in Dyersburg and the area, there is always something else going on. The Walkers do plan to run Saturday nights at the NBW Arena with a new name or old name of DCW/WOWF or both. I am hearing rumors that Derrick King has been contacted about booking for that show. Names like Ron Rage and Sarge O'Reilly have been told to me also. I also hearing that a lot of the talent will stay in Dyersburg and not move with Moore & NBW.

Maturity arrives for Randy Orton

By TIM BAINES - Ottawa Sun

Maybe being the youngest heavyweight champion in WWE's history went to Randy Orton's head.

Maybe hearing a symphony of boos and cheers from thousands of people every night affected his perspective.

But Orton needed a reality check. And two years ago, he got it from Vince McMahon, who happens to sign the paycheques.

"I wasn't thinking before I was saying things," says Orton, who seems to have matured through the humbling process. "I was taking the heel persona a little too seriously. I was told, 'This isn't going to work for you. That's what the ring is for. This is a publicly traded company and you're not a kid anymore."

It was a chat with McMahon and subsequent suspension that had an impact.

"Vince said he couldn't have somebody who was a loose cannon. He said if any person was going to stop Randy Orton from succeeding, it was Randy Orton."

So why didn't one of the other wrestlers, one of the veterans, give the third-generation star a reality slap?

"I'm sure Triple H was probably thinking it. He probably had a hundred of those conversations with me," says Orton.

He says internet reports at the time accused him of trashing a hotel room, something he says just wasn't true.

"I came home early from a show in Germany and the night before I flew out, a couple of the other wrestlers, who I won't name, got out the fire extinguishers and had a war in the hotel. There was thousands of dollars worth of damage. Everybody thought it was me because I flew home right after. There were signs in arenas: 'Randy Orton destroyed my hotel room.'"

Orton says he's looking forward to tomorrow's Survivor Series, where Team Orton will take on Team Batista.

"Being part of it is awesome," he says. "My goal this show and every time I got out there is to steal the show."

At age 28, Orton says he's still on the rise.

"You look at the talent and you've got a lot of the veterans getting to the age where they have to slow down ... lighten up their schedules, maybe do some movies," says Orton. "You've got a big crop of second- and third-generation wrestlers. And you've got a lot of new guys with limited experience. There are very few wrestlers at the level I'm at. There are going to be a lot of things for me to do down the road, movies and sponsorships, but my goal is to be the No. 1 guy here.

"As long as I'm kicking ass and taking names, the titles will find me."

Orton was recently ranked the No. 1 wrestler by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, but he says he doesn't pay much attention to those accolades.
"If I'm first or 60th, it doesn't really matter to me," he says. "But when my wife sees the magazine at Walgreen's ... she's like, 'That's so cool!' "They can hate me. I would love for all of them to hate me. It really means nothing to me."

Since he's The Legend Killer, does he see himself as a future legend?

"I'm a future Hall of Famer," he says. "I'm already a three-time champ. Age is on my side. Nothing is going to stop me."

But what about the injuries, the broken collarbone he got in June's One Night Stand match against Triple H, a setback that sidelined him until early this month?

"If I tear a muscle, I'll come back. I'll keep coming back. Doctors now, they fix you up better than ever. I'll definitely be a household name if I'm not already," says Orton.

And what about August's motorcycle accident that could have killed him?

"I was 3-4 weeks from returning to the ring, maybe not even that long," he says. "I was going up a hill at night. A car swerved into my lane and I had two options -- to slide into the wall or try to make a turn. If I'd slid into the wall at 30 miles an hour, I would have been pretty messed up. I didn't have enough road, (hit a curb), and landed a couple of hundred feet away. I was wearing a helmet or I would have been dead. I really got lucky. We'd just had the baby. I got to stay home some more and spend time with the baby."

He's back riding again.

"The first time back I was a little nervous, but that went away," he says. "The accident wasn't my fault. I just learned how to ride. Before the injury, I wasn't that experienced."

So what's next?

"Batista's in my sights. [John] Cena tore his pec before we could wrap up our feud. And I want to prove to everybody I'm better than Rey Mysterio. We had a run on Smackdown!, but I'd like to have a good run with him."

It's been well documented that Orton is the son of Cowboy Bob and grandson of Bob Sr., but what about his uncle Barry O, who was also a wrestler?

"When it comes to wrestling stats, he's not up to par with my father and grandfather," says Orton. "He's not a big part of our family. My wife and I had a baby girl (July 12) and I never got a call from him. I did everything I did by myself. My dad helped me get my foot in the door, just like his dad helped him get his foot in the door."

It's obvious Orton still is brash and bold? So how has he softened? How has he turned into a better person?

"We were just in Scotland, Ireland, Germany and Italy ... and Tampa before that," he says. "After being gone so long, when I got home, I walked into our house and my daughter and wife were sleeping. They looked so beautiful, so peaceful. I just watched them for a bit. I knew then what I had with my wife. She's one of a kind.

"My daughter (Alanna) was so happy to see her dad. She remembered me. I'm very lucky, there's no doubt."

See, it's hard to hate the guy now. Within the heel, there's a big heart.

Former WWE & TNA Star, Tomko, Heading Back To WWE

Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer reports that Travis Tomko has re-signed with WWE.

I know Travis visited a WWE Smackdown/ECW show in Atlanta after leaving TNA and spoke with John Laurinaitis then, and I understood he had visited other shows since. Travis had hoped for a regular spot in Japan, and was thinking of getting into MMA but neither happened.

TNA had initially left the door open to use him again and did once but creative had soured on using him for future dates due to issues when he was under contract.

No info on when he might start.

Obviously this will fuel speculation he will join Christian Cage again in WWE.

Ric Flair shoots on TNA... While Sitting Next To Mick Foley


On a recent episode of WWE 24/7's "Legends Of Wrestling" round table discussion, Ric Flair was on the panel along with Mick Foley, Gene Okerlund, Tazz, and Jim Ross. Ric Flair made some rather harsh comments towards TNA and some of it's talent.

Flair's stated working for Vince Russo in WCW "was the most disorganized & disabled wrestling company alive."

The discussion eventually switched gears to the the Oklahoma character Ed Ferrara played in WCW, Flair said that he was embarrassed to be part of the company, however when it was all said and done, Jim Ross is in the Hall Of Fame and a top announcer while "they're in the shit can. Nobody knows who they are and nobody cares. They work for TNA. What is TNA?"

What is ironic is he was sitting next to Mick Foley when making that comment. Due to the time period this was filmed, Mick Foley may or may not have had to bite his lip to not say anything back in defense.

Eventually, they started discussing the Madison Square Garden incident from 1996, Flair said that "Scott Hall's claim of fame was being in the ring at Wrestlemania X when Shawn Michaels was wrestling a ladder." Flair also commented that Kevin Nash, "had zero talent, he was in the right place at the right time. He had the look and the machine (WWE) got behind him but zero in the ring. ZERO!"

This episode can most likely still be seen on WWE 24/7.

3 DAY LES THATCHER SEMINAR & Tryouts for HIW/XIW on November 28th,29th & 30th


Then,come down to Pascagoula,MS at 1818 Denny Avenue (U.S. Highway 90) on the following dates below:
-Friday,November 28th-
-Saturday,November 29th-
and on
-Sunday,November 30th-

to attend a 3 day Wrestling Seminar featuring one of the greatest wrestling legends to ever step into the squared circle,
the one and only LES THATCHER!


Les Thatcher Pictures, Images and Photos

Les Thatcher was both a WCW and a WWE Developmental trainer whom throughout his illustrious wrestling career has wrestled against the best that the sport of professional wrestling has ever had to offer;
including 16-time former World Heavyweight Champion and WWE Hall Of Famer "Nature Boy" Ric Flair!!!

Want to stand out on the indy scene?
Want to be booked because you can work and not just because you are cheap.....

This will give you the opportunity to see what it takes to get to the top level.
Les has been there and back many times.
He has had a hand in training almost every big wrestling star you have ever seen on TV!

Les Thatcher will be holding a 3 day Seminar on November 28th,November 29th and November 30th on 1818 Denny Avenue (U.S. Highway 90) in Pascagoula,MS.

I can almost guarantee you will learn more useful knowledge in those 3 days that you have ever learned from the guy that trained you......and it won't cost you nearly as much.

The Southern Indy's and the independent wrestling scene in general is full of guys that have been wrestling for years that don't know the first thing about it and don't even realize it.
Some guy buys some tights and pays some con artist a few hundred or even a thousand dollars for that matter that has NO CREDENTIALS whom probably doesn't know a wristlock from a wristwatch nor how to REALLY wrestle himself and now he thinks he is an accomplished pro wrestler.
Now,he works for free or for 10 to 20 bucks in front of 20 people every weekend.....GO FIGURE!!!

Now you can find out for yourself.
If you want to learn something,then you should come to this seminar!

This seminar will also be open tryouts for two outstanding indy wrestling promotions in the Gulf Coast area,
Xtreme Impact Wrestling (XIW) and High Impact Wrestling (HIW).

Both wrestling shows host between 100-200 people per show and sometimes more.
Not to mention,a big plus to HIW and XIW is that you will get many chances to work with the former manager of both The Undertaker and Kane,


along with former Ring Of Honor superstar and former TNA superstar

But,even if you do not want to be part of either organization,you DO NOT want to miss out on this opportunity to train with the best!

And,if you think that taking a booking at some show that has 30 or 40 people watching it is more important than becoming a 10x better wrestler than you are now in 1 weekend,
then you don't need to be there anyway because you will always be in front of 30 or 40 people.

The 3 day Les Thatcher Wrestling Seminar is at 1818 Denny Avenue in Pascagoula,MS on:

-Friday,November 28th-
-Saturday,November 29th-
and on
-Sunday,November 30th-

He commented recently that he had seen a chiropractor and taken a few days off before the Survivor Series PPV to let himself heal. Hardy added to Mike Mooneyham, "It’s going to be fine. I was lucky. I had three or four days to kind of heal and rehab it. It’s one of those things. It comes with the territory."
