Back in January, Lashley talked about "evil prevailing" in WWE in his statement on his official website regarding his departure from the company. "I can't go into details of this now but like I said before sometimes people will hate you personally and try to destroy you, which has happened here. Evil has prevailed however like I said before if you continue your struggle doors will open around these people."
Additionally, one of the reasons Lashley moved from SmackDown to ECW in late 2006 was because Michael Hayes -- who was the head writer of the blue brand at the time -- wanted nothing to do with him. At the time, Lashley was saddled in a lame duck feud with Tatanka, who had just turned heel (and was fired three months later).
Defenders of Hayes continue to state that he is not a racist, although several others say that he uses racist language quite often. So much so, that a few people have gotten used to it because its an every day occurrence from him. On source who has worked closely to Hayes said, "You become numb to it. It goes from being 'holy s***' jaw-dropping to being an every day occurrence." Another source who has worked closely with Hayes added, "It's not if there are more stories, it's how many hundreds of times people who have been exposed to him have heard him (use racist language)."

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that The Sandman passed out at the 4/12 2CW show in Syracuse, NY. He apparently was a mess, was mumbling on the mic, worked a short match, and passed out. Spike Dudley came out to help Sandman to the back. About 100 fans wanted photos with The Sandman, but the promotion announced that there would be no photos. The Blue Meanie then came out and started signing autographs and talking with the fans.
From a fan who attended the show: Hey I wanted to update you about a show I attended about a month ago in Yonkers, NY. ProWrestlingSynicate (PWS) held it's first show in NY, they have had others show outside NY. This night one of event to take place was Sabu vs Sandman. Sabu has been a mess and really injured himself a week or so before for FTW on Long Island. He missed many shows after the event and his life choices have seemed to be down hill. He called in sick and missed to show and never boarded the plane. Sandman would face a named opponent later in the night. Sandman came out for photographs during intermission, did his whole shtick the whole way to the table. After intermission he headed back to the dressing room, you could tell he was lit. PWS had one of the best matches I've seen live with Jack Evans and Teddy Hart, 5 star match, the crowd was buzzing. After this match, Necro Butcher came out and announced he would face Sandman. This was going to be a hardcore fans dream! This match was better then a broken down Sabu. But Sandman was so passed drunk, he was pissed a$$ drunk, eyes blood shot, words were mumbled. I've never seen a bad Necro match, he is the only thing that saved this from being a totally cluster bomb. He made two offense moves and got his a$$ handed to him. In fact Necro had to job himself!!!! Necro took a chair and swung at Sandman, missed and the chair bounced off the ropes and hit him in the head in a 4 min. match! NECRO JOBBED HIMSELF! Sandman couldn't even get the job done, it was sad to see. He had everything together it seemed, cleaned himself up. Let's hope he can get it together, he was in great shape for a man whoses been through so much!!

WWE's developmental league Florida Championship Wrestling were supposed to start holding television tapings at the end of the February, but two months later and counting, things still have yet to get off the ground. They planned on holding the tapings at the end of March, and delayed them again until after WrestleMania, but things have not started yet. There is no word yet on when the tapings will finally get going.
The major problem preventing the television tapings from taking place is that Florida Championship Wrestling's state of the art wrestling facility does not have a single public bathroom, and only recently did they realize that they need one for spectators.
There is a bathroom for the wrestlers to use in a building adjacent to the facility, but it was left in such a mess that the wrestlers don't use it anymore. The WWE developmental wrestlers, who train at the facility for several hours a day every single week, have to go down the street to a gas station if they want to use the bathroom. Until plumbing is put in and completely installed, they won't be able to draw fans to the weekly tapings, so everything is on hold until some bathrooms get installed, whenever that may be.
FCW was also planning on touring across the state of Florida with several live shows every single week, but that has yet to get off the ground as well. Right now, WWE's wrestlers of the future work one show a week on Tuesday nights at a night club with a wrestling ring in it, and nothing else for the rest of the week. Because they have approximately 50 talents under contract (and are looking to increase that number to 70), the majority of the developmental wrestlers primarily work in tag matches to fit everyone on the card.
Total Championship Wrestling will be in Douglasville, GA, on May 10 at the National Guard Armory, with a starting time of 8:00 PM. Doors will open at 7:00. All tickets are $5, but kids under 6 get in free. Advertised: Damon Taz defends the TCW Heavyweight Title against Pretty Boy Floyd in a first blood match; Kenny Dees & Murder One defend the TCW Tag Team Title against Bulldog Raines & the Nightmare; Lamar Phillips & Jay Clinton versus Billy Love & Mark Pain; and Josh Storm versus Kid Ego. Also advertised to appear are Frankie Valentine and Ken Timbs, Jr. Call (404) 213-4632, (770) 871-0988, or (706) 716-5701 for more info. (Rich Tate)
It is being advertised that the National Wrestling Alliance will present an event at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA, on June 7. The event gets underway at 7:30 PM, and only Sid Vicious is being advertised at this time. Tickets will go on sale on May 3 at 10:00 AM ET, ranging from $17 to $52. More details will be forthcoming. (Rich Tate)
Georgia Wrestling Promotions results from the Hot Wheels Skate Center in Woodstock, GA, on April 27: in an impromptu tournament due to no-shows and dropouts prior to the event, Jamar Acid over Lamar Phillips, Scott Prater, and Murder One to become the Stacks on Deck Invitational 2008 champion. Each man had to qualify through a quarterfinal match to reach the four-way final, including Phillips over Frankie Valentine and Prater over Pinky. M-1 actually went over Acid, but Acid was slotted for the finals to replace J Dawg, who had gone over Jacob Hayes, but was injured in the process. (Rich Tate)
From the offices of Planet Championship WrestlingPalmetto, Florida… This Sunday’s event as part of the No Turning Back Tour has been postponed. New date and venue to be released next week on http://www.planetchampionshipwrestling.com.
Heyman comments on Samoa Joe, Kurt Angle, and the ratings "Impact" SHOULD have gotten for the rematch...
“TNA's biggest problem can be found in the fact the company continues to fail to brand itself, and that's a function of the key word in World Wrestling Entertainment's global dominance and 90-something percent market share...MARKETING!
For all there is to say about Vince McMahon - and I've said a lot, and will say a lot more in the future, I'm sure - you can't knock his unparalleled ability to market the WWE product.”
Is Heyman just offering friendly advice to TNA, or is he fishing for a new job since "Heyman Hustle" isn't exactly setting the world on fire. Decide for yourself by reading the full article here.
According to PWInsider, a match taped for “Impact” that will air Thursday night saw Cheerleader Melissa defeat SHIMMER and ROH regular Daizee Haze. Melissa was the babyface. However, Melissa ALSO wrestles under the hood as Riesha, the evil spokeswoman/tag team partner for Awesome Kong.
Is this a one-time only deal or the start of a split-personality angle? Time will tell.
OPINION: If anyone can pull it off the split-personality angle it is Melissa. However, with Dustin Rhodes/Black Reign and Eric Young/Super Eric already doing the same thing, it would be overkill.
The Ultimate Warrior appeared on The BJ Shea Morning Experience on 99.9 KISW in Seattle today and said the following.
"You know what man, next year is Wrestlemania XXV. You know when it's your 25th wedding anniversary, you gotta do something that is significant. You gotta do something that stands out from all the other anniversaries. McMahon vs. Warrior--Wrestlemania XXV...that would be awesome! Instead of our weird attitudes towards one another, let's let it out!"

Opening match was Nick The Natural vs Ron Killings. Nick did some mic work about how good his body is. Killings won with the scissors kick in about 6 minutes.
- Shad Gaspard W/JTG vs Charlie Haas. I missed the ending of this, but Shad won. Then they sold Haas' mask to a fan. It was about 3-minutes.
- Hacksaw Jim Duggan vs Snitsky. Snitsky won in about 4 minutes blocking Duggan's running clothesline and hitting a big boot for the pin.
- Hardcore Holly vs Canadian Bulldog DH Smith. Holly won with the Alabama slam in about 10 minutes.
After the show:

After the show went to black, William Regal came to the ring and then said that since the fans disrespected him, they don't deserve to see an ending to the match. From there the match just ended. Randy Orton left and they played HHH's music. HHH was at ringside and yelled at Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler, playing it up like he had been double-crossed.
The angle where Cornette talked about all of the women complaining was a half shoot from management to the women. The plan is for one of the ladies to get their head shaved almost completely bald at the PPV.
Kurt Angle was disappointed with his match at Lockdown with Samoa Joe. Angle did not suffer a concussion or neck injury as was being reported, but did suffer a rib cartilage injury. He then aggravated it by wrestling three nights later against Joe in their rematch.
Internally TNA was disappointed with the Impact rating after Lockdown and Samoa Joe's title win.
The World X-Cup has been pushed back. It was to begin this month, but will now be moved to June and finish up at the July PPV.
Credit: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter
OPINION: The Knockouts are the ONLY thing keeping the REST of the TNA crapfest afloat. If it weren't for the ladies, TNA's ratings would sink even LOWER than 1.0. Samoa Joe as the new champ sure didn't help!
Consider yourselves warned!

The Motor City Machine Guns vs. Shark Boy & Curry Man ended in a no-contest when Scott Steiner & Petey Williams came out and attacked all four men. Steiner then cut a promo on Kurt Angle. Angle came out and they started to brawl, with Steiner putting Angle in the Steiner Recliner until Samoa Joe made the save.
Backstage, Jeremy Borash interviews AJ Styles, who says he needs to find a partner for tonight since Tomko got hurt "in an MMA fight in Japan".
Mike Tenay conducts an in-ring interview with Velvet Sky & Angelina Love, who talk about their match at Sacrifice. They make fun of Gail Kim & ODB, who come out and brawl with them.
LAX defeats Eric Young & Kaz. After the match, Homicide gets on the mic and calls Hector Guerrero to the ring. He talks about their past, but also how LAX admires the Guerrero family. They make a pact for all Latinos to be united. LAX left, then came back out to add a part where they officially ask Hector to be in their corner at Sacrifice, and Hector accepts.
ODB & Gail Kim defeated Angelina Love & Velvet Sky. After the match, Angelina tries to attack Gail but Roxxi and ODB make the save.
AJ Styles & Super Eric defeated The Rock & Rave Infection.
Samoa Joe & Kurt Angle defeated Scott Steiner & Petey Williams. Afterwards, Angle attacked Joe, then Steiner attacked Angle. Steiner then attacked Joe and posed with the TNA belt.
Jim Cornette comes to the ring and brings out the singles wrestlers for the Deuces Wild tournament: Matt Morgan, Kip James, BG James, James Storm, Booker T, Robert Roode and Sting. The eighth participant is...
...wait for it...

When the Raw crew landed in Portugal, there was an incident where a fan grabbed Maria. This apparently scared her a lot. She was about to make a formal complaint when Umaga overheard the story and demanded to know who did it. Umaga never found the guy, but Maria was physically shaken over the incident.
OPINION: Who woulda thought Umaga was such a stand-up guy. The dude who grabbed Maria better be glad You-MANG-a didn't find him!

Later in the day Hayes was talking with Mark Henry and was trying to get him to open up his character and be more out going. Like African American's used to be portrayed, and stated to Henry, "I am more of a n*gger than you are." There were witnesses to the conversation. Later in the evening, Hayes gave Henry a playful head butt (this was a Freebirds trademark to show that they liked you, dating back nearly 30-years) and Henry told him never to do that again.
It was after all of that when Henry went to Vince McMahon about the situation. Some with in the company feel that Mark Henry made too big a deal about it, and many friends and supporters of Hayes have heat with Henry. Many people thought Hayes was untouchable, but Vince McMahon suspended Hayes himself.
Until Hayes returns, Ed Korskey and Christopher DeJosephs (who plays Big Dick Johnson on WWE TV) will take over as the writers for Smackdown and ECW. DeJosephs had been writing for ECW since Dave Lagana was fired and Dusty Rhodes left for Florida Championship Wrestling.

Show opened w/ XOW coming to the ring. They announced that they finally got what they want, a match for the company, at spring breakout. It would be a 6 man tag match consisting of 3 of the best XOW has to offer, NBW CHAMPION Motley Cruz, XOW CHAMPION Max Steele, and Mark Justice. Chris Styles was upset because he didn't get a spot in the match, saying Motley and Mark weren't really XOW. Motley said if Styles would learn some loyalty then maybe he would have a spot, at which point Styles said Motley doesn't know the first thing about loyalty. Billy Russ said tonight we would have a match for the spot in the 6 man between Motley and Styles. Allen Walker then announced Big Red, and Jeremy Moore as part of the 6 man. Moore came out and said that since he wasn't going to be able to fight Sarge at the big show he wanted him tonight in a no holds barred match.

Jay Webster defeated LSD.
Blade, Dalton Storm, & Chazz w/BJ Fuller defeated PHAT Foundation (Justin Rhodes, Chris Fontaine, & Chris Stevens). This was a wild match that saw David Cox come out of the back to help PHAT Foundation and Fuller get involved to help the other team. During the match Chris Stevens did not seem to be on the same page with the other two members of PHAT Foundation. Stevens tripped Chris Fontaine once, and hit him later in the match. Both incidents appeared to be accidents, but it was Stevens who was pinned for the three count, causing PHAT Foundation to lose the match. After the match, Fontaine & Rhodes turned on Stevens. Obviously he is no longer a PHAT Foundation member.
This Saturday night at JWS in Booneville, the card will include:
BJ Fuller, Dalton Storm, & Chris Stevens vs. PHAT Foundation (Justin Rhodes, Chris Fontaine, & their newest member, "Dangerous" David Cox).
