EPW results from 11-27 in Booneville, MS

At the beginning of the show Hollywood Jimmy Blaylock and Smooth, Inc. come to the ring. Hollywood calls Edith out and gives her a special outfit to wear, telling her that she works for him and she will wear it. He also brings out a siren, and says that every time the siren is sounded, Edith must come to ringside to see what Hollywood wants. Hollywood then calls out David Cox and Blade. He tells them that even though they are good friends, they will wrestle each other right now, or they will be fired.

"Dangerous" David Cox vs. Blade was thrown out when Hollywood called out the members of the Hollywood Clique who beat both Cox & Blade down.

Hollywood turns on the siren & Edith comes back to the ring wearing a maid's outfit. Hollywood orders her to go to the concession stand and get him a drink. Edith goes and gets him a coke. Hollywood pours the coke out and sends her back for a diet coke.

EPW Champion Rajah & Robert "The Main Factor" Devine defeated Smooth, Inc. ("Big Daddy" Neno & Chrome) w/Antoin Smooth.

Kross comes to the ring and talked about Hollywood not accepting his challenge for a cage match on 12/18. Hollywood out & words are exchanged. Kross calls out Brian Christopher, who calls out Edith. He asks Edith what she thinks of Hollywood as an owner. Edith says Hollywood sucks. Brian then asked Edith what she would do if she was still owner. She said she would give the fans what they want. Brody Hawk comes out of the back and speaks to Hollywood. Hollywood then says that he has a special tag team in the back, and that if Kross & Brian Christopher can defeat them, Kross & JR Mauler will get their cage match on 12/18 against The Hollywood Blondes. Only one stipulation, says Hollywood - Kross/Brian must win this match 1-2-3 in the middle of the ring. Kross & Brian agree to the match.

Hollywood sends Edith to concession stand for nachos. Edith brings them & Hollywood throws them away, sends Edith back for plain nachos without cheese.

Cassanova Kid w/Hollywood defeated Buzz Harley due to interference by Bonecrusher.

Chazz Stone & Keylo defeated Crazed Country Rebels (Wild Bill & Demon X) w/Hollywood when Blaylock accidentally threw powder in the facr of his own man, Demon X, causing him to lose the match.

Hollywood calls Edith out & sends her to get him a bottle of water. Edith brings it and Hollywood orders her to pour a sip into his mouth without spilling a drop.

Main event: Bonecrusher & Cassanova Kid vs. Kross & Brian Christopher. If Kross & Brian win by pin fall in the middle of the ring, Kross & JR Mauler face The Hollywood Blondes in a cage 12/18. Senior official KC out to referee the match, but Hollywood sends him to the back and brings Brody Hawk out to referee the match. It was the kind of match you would expect under those conditions, Brian & Kross battling not only their opponents, but also the referee. In the end, Brian & Kross won the match by count out. Hollywood, however, ordered Bonecrusher & Cassanova Kid declared the winners, because Kross/Brian did not win the match by pin fall in the middle of the ring, as the stipulation called for.

Hollywood calls out Edith, and he made her announce that Brian Christopher is suspended from EPW for the remainder of the year. He also forced her to announce that JR Mauler and Kross are fired from EPW.

Kross said, "They might have fired me, but Hollywood will have one hell of a time getting rid of me!"

End of show.

Next EPW show is this Saturday night, 12/4, at the EPW Arena on Highway 145 in Booneville, MS. Bell time is 8:00 p.m. Will those in EPW that are still loyal to Edith come up with a plan to stop Hollywood and his goons? Will The Hollywood Clique continue to run roughshod over everyone in EPW? Remember, you never know who will show up or what will happen in EPW, so DON'T MISS IT!

Orton injured

According to sources, Randy Orton suffered an injury to his knee on last week's RAW from Orlando, FL. This is the same night Orton lost the WWE title to The Miz after he cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase. According to the source, Nexus member Husky Harris kicked Orton in the knee, thus causing the injury. Orton was kept off WWE weekend live events as a result of this. The injury caused quite the scare among WWE management as the last thing they need right now is another top star injured.

Tiffany talks about her release from WWE

"Whether that incident is attributed to my release or not, I don't think I'll ever know... certainly the timing would say so. It was really stupid and it was somebody that had an axe to grind with us for no reason. Obviously nothing happened because everything was dropped immediately, and the person that decided to make up a little story.. karma's a you know what. It's a shame because they really screwed with somebody's life and that's sad when people do that. The internet world went crazy with it because it was something very controversial."

--Tiffany, on whether the wrestling media made too big a deal out of the August incident between her and her husband, Drew McIntyre.

Lucha Star Murdered

R.I.P. Hijo de Cien Caras

Off the heels of the murder of LL-USA star, Solid, last week yet another luchador has been gunned down this month. IWRG star, Hijo de Cien Caras, was shot and murdered Sunday night outside of a house in Mexico. He and a woman, Adela Luna (possibly his wife), were sitting in a car when an unidentified man walked up to the car and began firing shots into the car striking Caras 4 times.

Hijo de Cien Caras, real name Ignacio Jimenez, was only 33 years old. Despite his name (Hijo de Cien Caras) he wasn't actually related to the Cien Caras family. He (along with Cien Caras Jr.) rented the gimmick from the original Cien Caras. However, he IS part of the legendary Parka family. He is the brother of L.A. Park and nephew of Super Parka/Volador Sr. (he's also the cousin of Volador Jr. and uncle of Hijo de L.A. Park obviously).

Hijo de Cien Caras made his debut back in 2005 under the Caras gimmick but it is unclear when his actual debut in Lucha was. Caras has competed for AAA and CMLL but was primarily a star for IWRG in the last few years. He and longtime partner Mascara Ano 2000 Jr. were the IWRG Intercontinental Tag Team Champions from June of this year until last week when they dropped the belts to the father-son team of Pirata Morgan & Hijo de Pirata Morgan. He and Mascara also held those titles one more time back in 2007 where they defended the belts an IWRG record 12 times successfully. They didn't drop those titles until 2009 to the team of Scorpio Jr. & Ricky Cruz. Caras also won the Occidente Tag Team Titles with Cien Caras Jr. twice in CMLL. No suspect has yet been named in the murder of Caras.

This brought out Ace Rockwell, who told Alexander to put his money where his mouth was because he was also ranked. Rockwell challenged Alexander to a match on 12/10.

Special guest, Pat Rose, a Chattanooga native, former wrestler and host of the popular local fishing show "Set The Hook" on WPLZ 95.3, gave a speech about the history of Chattanooga wrestling, as Tojo Yamamoto and Gypsy Joe were inducted into the Scenic City Hall Of Fame.

6) Tank defeated Mikael Judas via pinfall with the choke-breaker. Post match, the two men had a staredown and Judas slowly backed away never taking his eyes off Tank. Tank stated he's preparing for the fight of his life against Shatter on 12/10 and he'll give everything he has to try and defeat the National Champion.

A Shatter highlight music video played to end the event.

Shocking Shoot Video of The Hardys Becomes Internet Rage

A shocking video in which both current TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy and his brother Matt shoot on WWE's CM Punk has become the rage of the Internet.

The viral video, shot in a diner, was posted by Knives Monroe, who claims "This isn't our video. It's everyones. I found it and wanted to exploit it as fast as we could because this isn't a great role model for kids."

In the controversial video, Jeff criticizes Punk's Straight Edge lifestyle, and claims Punk uses Ambien, a prescription sleep medication, to go to sleep. I can't comment on Jeff's condition in the video, because I don't know if it's real or if he's looking for attention by acting this way, but you can draw your own conclusions when watching.

If the Hardy's are acting, then Matt's performance is stellar. As a person who has seen some wild behavior in his life, I'd be rather concerned for Matt if I was within his inner circle, but who knows how much of this is grasping for publicity, and how much of it is real?

The media is just starting to get wind of the video. Sports blog The Bleacher Report has reported on the Hardy's behavior and noted entertainment website Popwrecked has posted the video, and reported on the Hardy's wildness. You can see the video below:

PLEASE BE ADVISED: The video contains explicit language that may not be suitable for all viewers

At this time, CM Punk has not responded to the Hardys, and neither WWE nor TNA have commented.

Stay tuned!

Bobby Heenan In Rough Shape

Bobby Heenan is reportedly in very poor health at a Tampa, Florida hospital.
Lanny Poffo, brother of Randy Savage, said on the Who's Slamming Who podcast this week that he heard from a friend that the WWE Hall of Famer "might be on his last legs."

The wrestler formerly known as The Genius said Heenan has been "in and out of a coma" in a Tampa area hospital and is "not aware of anything."

Heenan has been in poor health in recent years due to surgery on his throat and reconstructive jaw surgery.

It should be noted however, Great Lakes Championship Wrestling promoter David Herro wrote on Twitter that he heard from the wife of the WWE Hall of Famer, who said that Bobby is not hospitalized.

Herro wrote, "Just spoke with Cindy Heenan the lovely wife of "The Brain", Bobby is NOT in a coma &is not in the hospital. He's home resting his hip."

Also, MVP recently tweeted: "Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan is in bad shape. Yrs ago he encouraged & complimented me! Keep him in your thoughts & send positive vibes his way!"

We're getting conflicting reports as well. We'll keep you posted as we get more.

DVD Review: Guest Booker w/ Dutch Mantel - Exposing TNA

DVD Review Guest Booker with Dutch Mantell – Exposing TNA

Reviewed by Steven Wilson of MainEventRadio.com

A year ago the wrestling world was abuzz over the announcement that Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff were going to TNA to shake up the company and bring it to the next level. A year later we all saw how that has turned out, as the Monday night wars part 2 was somewhat of a failed experiment, the re-launch button was nearly pressed again a few months later when Paul Heyman was in negotiations to take over the company, and now Dixie Carter’s mom, Janice has been put in charge of approving all new spending,. To say the least its been a rollercoaster year for TNA.

One of the individuals who had been with TNA for years, but found himself on the outside following the takeover by the Hogan-Bischoff regime is Dutch Mantell and now he is given his chance by Kayfabe Commentaries to show us how he would of booked the new TNA roster if he had been in charge during the latest installment of the Guest Booker DVD series.

As with previous installments of the Guest Booker series, this installment serves up more than just the guest booking purpose as it takes a look at the TNA booking structure prior to the Hogan/Bischoff regime and If you’ve been a fan of TNA at any time in recent years then you’ve probably found yourself scratching your head asking why something just happened or how they came up with such an idea, which is why this DVD is such an interesting watch.

Starting with the early days of TNA’s booking by committee, Mantell shares his frustration with getting some logic into the booking process and how the booking process often ended up being a court room more than anything as it was rare the individuals all agreed and everyone was throwing in their small ideas along the way. Mantell explains why the lack of a sole director in charge of TNA’s creative caused what is an exceptional roster to not be used correctly. However he does not come off as one of those disgruntled former employees which can often be the case in some of these DVD shoot interviews, in fact he is fairly politically correct in his comments and opinions.

Mantell also shoots from the hip when it comes to him being blamed for angles that drew “Fire Russo” chants, something that had been implied in Dixie Carter’s You Shoot DVD earlier this year, Mantell calls that pure BS and implores Russo to own up to the piss poor angles he is responsible for such as the Abyss/Sting Last Rites match that drew a big Fire Russo chant.

When it comes to his expectations for Hogan and Bischoff, Mantell expected a “hell of a lot more”, which is something I think many of us shared over the past 12 months, but could Mantell do better? Well that’s what the Guest Booker portion of the DVD attempts to show. Mantell admits that being faced with such an inflated roster of 50 to 60 guys is a tough task as it’s a recipe for exactly what happened in TNA this year, too much to get over in such a small period of time. At the same time he would find it hard to send people home as it’s a time where your trying to make sure that you want the roster to be behind you, and thus its one of the reasons creative in TNA has always been overwhelmed and stretched.

Mantell then goes on to explain his vision of January 4th, which would have had Abyss with Jim Mitchell,who he had taken time to rebuild as a monster for the month leading up to the January 4th event and have him confront Hogan to start a major angle.

Mantell then share his plans for RVD, Jeff Hardy, Mr Anderson and Desmond Wolfe, however amongst the flaws is the fact that they don’t take into consideration that RVD was not accepting to a TNA spot until March.

One of the things Mantell preaches throughout his vision is the slow build and reveal of the new arrivals to the roster as opposed to blowing the load every few seconds.

Along the way he explains some of the flaws in what happened in reality, and how Jim Cornette would often point these type of flaws out in TNA’s product while he was still there, which eventually led to his hatred for Vince Russo exploding.

Overall this is an interesting watch for any TNA fan, especially those have been frustrated over the years with some of the booking decisions, so if you have a TNA fan on your holiday gift giving list you may consider this installment of the Guest Booker.

Video From EPW

EPW results from 11-20 in Booneville, MS

It was a wild and CRAZY night!

The Hollywood Clique came to the ring, interrupting the National Anthem, and called out EPW Promoter Edith Poole. Edith did not come to the ring. Hollywood said there would be "hell to pay for Edith tonight."

Smooth, Inc. ("Big Daddy" Neno/Chrome) w/Antoin Smooth defeated Blade & "Dangerous" David Cox.

Hollywood Jimmy Blaylock and the Hollywood Clique back to the ring to run their mouths. I informed them that I had received a call from Chris Rocker that there had been a death in his family and that he & Stan Lee were not going to be at EPW. Blaylock then gave the Hollywood Blondes (Brody Hawk/Sarge O'Riley) the night off since their opponents were not going to be there. Out of the crowd came Billy Russ, along with Syn & DJ Stunner. Russ issued a challenge to the Hollywood Blondes for a match later on. Match was made for later.

EPW Tag Team Champions Bonecrusher & cassanova Kid w/Blaylock cheated their way to victory over EPW Champion Rajah & Robert "The Main Factor" Devine. Edith to the ring and reversed the decision because Cassanova Kid had used a chain. Winners by reversed decision: Rajah & Robert Devine.

Hollywood was furious. He confronted Edith and demanded that she sign ownership of EPW over to him. Edith refused. Hollywood told Edith to sign, or there would be big trouble. Edith refused. The members of the Hollywood Clique came to the ring dragging Edith's husband, Tim, to the ring with them. They handcuffed Tim to the ropes. Hollywood demanded that Edith sign the company over to him. Edith refused. Tim was shouting, "don't sign, don't sign." They then cut Tim's hair off. Tim again shouted. "don't sign." Hollywood then said, "This is your fault, Edith." They then began using a taser on Tim, and a frantic Edith signed the papers transferring ownership of EPW to Hollywood Jimmy Blaylock. Blaylock then said that Tim would have to be his personal security guard in EPW, and that Edith now worked for him as well. Hollywood then said that he was reversing the decision of the previous match and that Bonecrusher & Cassanova Kid were the winners.

At that point I resigned from EPW, but agreed to stay when threatened with the taser....

Crazed Country Rebels (Wild Bill/Demon-X) with Hollywood Jimmy Blaylock defeated Blade & Chazz Stone. Hollywood has obviously added a new tag team to the Hollywood Clique....

The Hollywood Blondes w/Blaylock defeated Syn & DJ Stunner by pin fall. However, there was much controversy, as there was a double pin. But the referee said he saw only one pin and awarded the match to The Hollywood Blondes.

Yes, friends, it was a wild and crazy night....

The card this week at EPW will include Kross & Brian Christopher vs. The Hollywood Blondes. If Kross & Brian win, then Kross & JR Mauler will get a shot at the Hollywood Blondes in the near future in a steel cage.

What havoc will Hollywood & the Clique members bring to EPW this Saturday night? Will Edith and Tim do what Hollywood tells them to? Will the Hollywood Blondes prevail over Kross & Brian Christopher? Don't forget about Gary Valiant - will this be the week that he returns to get his revenge on Hollywood & the Clique? Find out the answers this Saturday night at EPW! It all happens at the EPW Arena on Highway 145 in Booneville, MS. Bell time is 8:00.

Remember, you never know who will show up at EPW or what will happen! Don't miss it!

PWO WRESTLELUTION 3's TOP FIVE "DEFINING MOMENTS" - #1: Conclusion to Johnny Gargano vs. M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross PWO Title Match

PWO Wrestlelution 3: A Defining Moment has gone down as one of the most eventful and emotional regional professional wrestling events in recent memory anywhere! The official DVD of the live event has been a hot seller, and the ramifications of this day are still felt throughout PWO to this day. To celebrate this monumental event, over the next several weeks we will be counting down the Top 5 PWO Wrestlelution 3 “Defining Moments”! Some of the best moments, the biggest stars, and the memories you’ll never forget!

A year's worth of tension, sabotage, and betrayal led to a violently personal battle between PWO's two best athletes on PWO's biggest stage as current PWO Champion Johnny Gargano defended against the first-ever PWO Champion "M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross.

After nearly thirty minutes of intense war, Matt Cross looked to finish Gargano with Matt's trademark shooting star press, his second of the bout. However, what would happen next between Gargano and Cross defied the laws of physics and logic, leaving an exclamation point on an already unforgettable event.

Watch the breathtaking conclusion here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctMXrj7hrog

Family of Nancy Benoit vs. Hustler - the ruling is in

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper is reporting that Hustler magazine will have to pay damages to the family of Nancy Benoit for publishing her old nude photos in one of their issues after she was killed by her husband, Chris Benoit.

The Larry Flynt-owned publication fought the lawsuit saying that the photographs were newsworthy. However, U.S. District Judge Thomas W. Thrash Jr., had a different view about it, and said that the company published the photos in their March, 2008 issue purely for profit.

"No reasonable juror could conclude that [Larry Flynt Publishing] did not publish the photographs and the article for financial gain," the Judge wrote. "The evidence shows that LFP made significant profits off the March 2008 issue and that the reaction to the Benoit photographs was 'huge and overwhelmingly positive.'"

A jury trial will be held next to determine the damages that the company has to pay. "The family is ecstatic about the ruling," the family's attorney, Richard Decker, told the AJC on Wednesday.

"It's what we thought should be the case. Hustler said it was a jury case, but the judge said no. Now, the only issue is how much the damages will be."

The photos were snapped 20 years earlier after Nancy expressed interest in entering the adult industry.

Tiffany wants to stay in wrestling

Taryn "Tiffany" Terrell said this week that she wants to continue to wrestle post-WWE, saying she is open to offers from TNA. Terrell told www.mondaynightmayhem.com: "I would definitely say that my future is wrestling. I was not this crazy lifelong fan. I wish I could say I was, but from the time I started wrestling before my very first tryout at OVW, I bought five wrestling books, and read them, and learned as much as I could. I immediately fell in love with the business, and I have such strong passion for it, so no matter what, I’m definitely going to be wrestling. If TNA comes knocking at my door, I’m definitely open to that, and I think Dixie Carter has done really an amazing job. She’s really put in a lot into the Knockouts division, and they have a lot of really great talent there. I would love to go there. I’d love to be with TNA. I just love it, and have such a passion for it, and whoever will have me, I am ready to get back into the ring."

Update on Dean Malenko's health

The stories making the rounds that WWE agent Dean Malenko recently suffered a heart attack are not completely accurate. People had attempted to keep this quiet but the story is that doctors detected a clogged artery after Malenko experienced shortness of breath and nausea at the 10/26 Smackdown taping in Milwaukee. Subsequently he underwent surgery to have a heart stent put in. Malenko, 50, has already returned to work following the procedure and was backstage at television this past week.

WWE.com presents: The Undertaker's 20 Years in the WWE. (With Howard Finkel)

In a WWE.com exclusive interview, WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel shares his memories of The Undertaker.

WWE.com: The ominous entrance of The Undertaker is legendary. And for the majority of his career, you were the voice of that entrance. When introducing The Phenom, describe what you would concentrate on vocally.

Howard Finkel: The word “Undertaker.” I wanted to take the four syllables of that word and make each syllable distinct to give him the unique introduction that I believed I gave him through the years.

WWE.com: If there had never been The Deadman, what three things do you think would be completely different in WWE today? 

Howard Finkel: I can not give you any specific instances as to what would be completely different. But from a general standpoint, if there had never been The Deadman, then perhaps someone else would have had the opportunity to have attained the lofty iconic status that The Deadman so richly deserves today. 

WWE.com: Psychology has always been a huge part of The Phenom’s arsenal, both in the ring and outside of it. In your opinion, has there been a particular rivalry of The Undertaker’s where the mind games he played on his opponent were as explosive as the match itself? 

Howard Finkel: The last two WrestleMania matches (XXV & XXVI) against Shawn Michaels. The story that was told leading up to these respective confrontations was as intense as their matches were.

WWE.com: What was your favorite Undertaker rivalry?

Howard Finkel: Kane, for the simple reason that for more than thirteen years it has been a rivalry that has had so many different twists and turns. Brothers in arms, brothers at war. And to this day it has kept its uniqueness and spontaneity sharp.

WWE.com: People always want to know about how something was at the beginning. For instance, they want to know how “Stairway to Heaven” was received the first time it was played in front of an audience. The first time you introduced The Undertaker (Survivor Series – after weeks of anticipation about the “mystery partner” for The “Million Dollar’s” Man’s Team), describe the mood of the WWE Universe?

Howard Finkel: Going back to that night in the Hartford (CT) Civic Center, I remember that virtually none at the live event booed the entrance of The Undertaker that night, despite the fact that he was part of The Million Dollar Team. It was more of an “oooh and aaah” type reaction, because of his uniqueness that he projected on that Thanksgiving night in 1990.

WWE.com: Standing in the awesome presence of The Demon of Death Valley must be horrifying for anyone. Has there been a time at ringside that you were actually fearful about something going on during one of The Undertaker’s matches?
Howard Finkel: Not necessarily fearful per se, but more of the premise that he was The Phenom in every sense of the word. If I did the ring announcing for his match, I would be very attentive to his every move he made, because with The Undertaker, everything was fair game, as far as I was concerned.
WWE.com: What alliance or tag team that The Undertaker was a part of has had the greatest impact on his career?
Howard Finkel: Alliance and Tag Team: Kane. The Brothers of Destruction were a natural fit together; it meshed so well, either as a united front, or on opposite sides of the ring.  Additionally, add Paul Bearer to the Alliance portion. He complemented The Undertaker so, so well.
WWE.com: What is the most memorable Undertaker match that you have ever been present for?
Howard Finkel: Two come to mind: Of course, The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXV in 2009. The bar was definitely raised when these two met. And also, the night that Undertaker defeated Hulk Hogan at the 1991 Survivor Series in Detroit, and in the process won the WWE Championship!
