Former WWE diva Cherry upset with WWE's treatment of Natalya



Friday's episode of SmackDown saw Alicia Fox drop Natalya with a Scissors Kick for the decisive win. Then with Natalya still reeling, Tamina blasted her own partner with a kick to the face, followed up by a Superfly Splash from the top rope. Former Diva Cherry, a close friend of Natalya's, was alarmed by WWE's shabby treatment of the third-generation grappler.

She tweeted, "WWE have lost their minds! I have no idea what the hell they're doing to Natalya! You're wasting the talent of one of the best wrestlers you've got!"

Regarding the loss, Natalya wrote, "It's not how hard you get hit, but how Many times you get hit, get up and keep on fighting. That's hart...I mean heart."

Recent Reports from NWA ProSouth Wrestling in Piedmont, Alabama



December 23, 2011
Results:
At the beginning of the show Commisioner Terry Batey came out to apologize to the fans for Gene Jackson showing up after being fired to cost Ace Haven his NWA World Title match the previous week against "Scrap Iron" Adam Pearce, before he could say anything else "The King of All Wrestling Media" Gene Jackson and his Epic Alliance came out to the ring with Jackson carrying a briefcase.  Jackson said it was funny that Batey was apologizing for his return when it was Terry Batey who in fact hired him back as a manager.  The crowd was confused and Batey looked disgusted.  Jackson went on to say that while he was the General Manager of ProSouth Wrestling and running the office, he came across and took something that if he exposed it would ruin ProSouth Wrestling and it's owner Terry Batey.....He said that he allowed Batey to fire him after the El Diablo Loco unmasking knowing he had this "ace in the hole" to play later on at the right time so he could cost Ace Haven his shot at the World Title as he promised he would do.  This brought out Ace Haven and Total Justice......Haven cuts a promo on Jackson saying he will get revenge on him for costing him the World title and for Brian Alexander and the Alliance ending the career of Total Justice member Kaiden Knight the week before.   Jackson said when he called Terry Batey and told him what he found and that he  had it in his possesion, Batey was quick to rehire him as a manager here in ProSouth.....Batey didn't deny this and Ace Haven did not look pleased at all.  Jackson said rather than use what was in his briefcase to ruin ProSouth, he's gonna use it to RULE ProSouth.....and if Batey didn't want it exposed he wouldn't get in his way.


Scott Spade defeated "Epic" Grant Mitchell, followed by Mitchell & Dakota Outlaw attacking Spade until Tyler Gage made the save


Total Justice (Ace Haven & Shawn Seagle) defeated the Epic Alliance (Daniel Alexander & Big Tomb) to earn a NWA PSW Tag Title match next week


Kyle Matthews defeated Big Wood (w/ Mike Posey) in the first match of the Posey Trials for Matthews to earn a shot at the NWA PS All Out Title


PSW Champion "Future Classic" Tyler Gage defeated Dakota Outlaw (w/ Gene Jackson), with a post-match brawl between the Epic Alliance and Total Justice, during which the Epic Alliance ganged up on Gage while Brian Alexander accepted Gage's challenge to a "Last Man Standing Match" at Bigger, Faster, Stronger 2, and which Jackson hit Gage with the NWA PSW Championship belt leaving him face down in the ring as Total Justice ran in for the save.

NWA ProSouth presents BIGGER, Faster, Stronger 2


Results: 
Dakota Outlaw w/Gene Jackson defeated Chris Ganz by pinfall


Kyle Matthews defeated Mike Posey & Corey Hollis in a handicap match when Posey eventually walked out on Hollis while he was trapped in a submission hold from Matthews in another "gauntlet" match to earn a shot at Posey's All Out Championship


"Epic" Grant Mitchell w/Gene Jackson defeated "Awesome" Scott Spade by making him pass out in an ankle lock after Jackson distracted the referee from seeing Spade grab the bottom to break the hold, Grant dragged him back to the center of the ring and after a long struggle Spade eventually succumbed to the pain and the referee stopped the match.


Total Justice ("Last Hero" Ace Haven/"Stinger" Shawn Seagle) vs. the Epic Alliance (Daniel Alexander/Big Tomb) ended in a double countout, with the Alliance retaining the NWA PSW Tag Team Title after the official barred Gene Jackson from ringside due to his interference in the prior two matches


Main Event
Last Man Standing
NWA PSW Heavyweight Title
"The Future Classic" Tyler Gage retained the championship when neither he nor the challenger Brian Alexander could answer the 10 count after a violent match that saw various weapons involved including a chair, a large chain, a table, a ladder, a piece of the guard rail, amongst others used....when neither man could answer the bell, the referee declared it a draw.  


Mark Grason asked Commisioner Terry Batey to clarify who the champion was since technically NEITHER man had been left standing.  Terry said that as with any draw the champion would retain his title....this brought out "The King of All Wrestling Media" Gene Jackson and his entire Epic Alliance.....Jackson who once again had the infamous briefcase with him grabbed the mic away from Terry Batey and told him that since Brian Alexander was the one that put Gage through the table, he should be declared the champion....he then waved the case in front of Batey and reminded him to "do the right thing".  Batey said that rules are rules and Tyler Gage is still the Heavyweight Champion.  Jackson said he was tired of "being nice" and slapped the Commsioner in the face.....Batey said that perhaps it was time for HIM to stop being nice and slapped Jackson in the face, when this happened all hell broke loose with Total Justice and the Epic Alliance breaking out into a wild brawl.  While all this was going on Batey managed to grab the briefcase from Jackson but Gene punched him in the face knocking him to the mat and allowing him to get back his case.  Jackson grabbed Batey by the hair and said he was about to "end him" when the lights went out and the building was pitch dark....when the lights came back on....BRANDON COLLUM was in the ring and he proceded to punch out his former manager Gene Jackson, this caused the Epic Alliance to jump him but before they could inflict any damage the lights went out again....and when they came back on Collum was gone without a trace.....The brawling resumed with Total Justice and The Epic Alliance.....Once again in the confusion Terry Batey grabbed Jackson's briefcase, but Jackson gave him a shot to the gut and then proceded to hit Batey square in the face with the briefcase knocking him out cold....it would seem there's more than documents in this briefcase.....Jackson took the mic and stood over the fallen owner of ProSouth holding the case up high and declaring that all the power in ProSouth was in this case and it belonged to the EPIC ALLIANCE....as fans were outraged and trying to come over the rails due to the attack on ProSouth Commisioner Terry Batey.






BE THERE NEXT FRIDAY IN PIEDMONT, ALABAMA TO FIND OUT WHAT'S NEXT IN NWA PROSOUTH WRESTLING!! CAN TERRY BATEY DO ANYTHING TO GENE JACKSON FOR ATTACKING HIM OR WILL THIS MYSTERY CASE PREVENT IT?  AFTER THE BRUTAL MATCH BETWEEN TYLER GAGE AND BRIAN ALEXANDER, WILL EITHER BE FIT TO COMPETE? WILL ACE HAVEN AND STINGER GET ANOTHER SHOT AT THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP?  HAS KYLE MATTHEWS FINALLY JUMPED THROUGH ENOUGH HOOPS TO GET A SHOT AT MIKE POSEY'S ALL OUT CHAMPIONSHIP??  HOW SERIOUS IS THE LEG INJURY OF SCOTT SPADE??  WHAT WAS BRANDON COLLUM DOING BACK IN PROSOUTH AND WHY DID HE ATTACK HIS RECENT FRIEND AND MANAGER??  WHOSE SIDE IS HE ON?? HOW DOES ACE HAVEN FEEL ABOUT THIS AFTER ENDING BRANDON'S PROSOUTH CAREER.....TWICE!! MAKE SURE YOUR IN PIEDMONT, ALABAMA AT 7PM ON FRIDAY NIGHT TO FIND OUT!!!!

Brock Lesnar Retires From UFC After Loss At UFC 141


Source: FightLine.com

From Mark Wayne of FightLine.com:

You knew what kind of fight it was going to be when Alistair Overeem stuffed Brock Lesnar's first takedown attempt with ease. Lesnar came to fight, no question, he cut the Dutch striker over the eye with a stiff left and put forth his best effort to fight back as Overeem began to take the fight's momentum.

Overeem walked through the shot and ignored the blood, stalking Lesnar down and going to work with hard knees and kicks to the body. Lesnar was on his heels but clear-eyed and returning fire, but Overeem wouldn't be denied. He came forward relentlessly and continue his body assault, eventually dropping Lesnar with a hard body kick and finishing him off with a torrent of right hands to the head and then body.

With the impressive first round TKO, Overeem earns a shot at UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and a chance to finally collect his most sought-after title.

In defeat, Lesnar chose to hang up his gloves, having made a promise to his family to retire from the sport soon anyway. Humbly, Lesnar announced his retirement in the cage.

"My hat's off to Alistair Overeem. I wanna take my hat off to all my training partners, my wife, my family. I've had a really difficult couple of years, with my disease. I'm gonna officially say, tonight is the last night you'll see me in the Octagon," Lesnar announced emotionally. "I wanna thank everybody. I wanna thank the Fertittas, Dana White. Brock Lesnar is officially retired, I promised my wife and my kids if I won this fight I would get my title shot and that would be my last fight, and that if i lost tonight - everybody, you've been great. Alistair, it's been a pleasure."

Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion, retires with a 5-3 record.

Stephanie McMahon interview highlights


RXMuscle.com recently spoke with WWE's Stephanie McMahon Levesque about losing weight and getting back into shape after giving birth to her kids. Here are some highlights:

Being the daughter of Vince McMahon and growing up in a wrestling family: "It's hard to say what life was like growing up as 'Vince McMahon's daughter.' I would watch my dad on Saturday mornings do interviews and I'd watch him commentate with Jesse Ventura on 'Saturday Night's Main Events.' It was just what my dad did; I didn't look at it as anything unusual. It wasn't until I was a little older and the other kids tried to make fun of me that I realized my situation was a little different. I actually kicked a kid in the shins for saying wrestling was fake! My Dad was always big into working out; he's the one who got me turned on to the gym. He was so intense and trained so hard, it looked like fun!"

Her favorite quote: "This isn't necessarily my favorite quote, it's just the one that is coming to mind... 'Learn to eat sh-t and like the taste' a life lesson by my dad, Vince McMahon."

How she met Triple H and if it was love at first site: "We were married on TV as a fictional couple and life just imitated art...It wasn't love at first site, but I bet you could call it chemistry at first site. I have never been more attracted to anyone in my entire life! He would just look at me and I would blush; still happens to this day actually..."

If she will return on-camera in the near future: "Anything can happen in the WWE!"

Michael Cole's WWE Commentary -- problem?


There has been internal discussion about how Michael Cole has buried talents over the past year and how that burying hasn't helped them any.

Zack Ryder and Daniel Bryan were specifically brought up as far as Cole burying them goes. It was pointed out that Cole has put them down in commentary forever and both haven't been booked as main event talents up until recently and it showed when they had to rely on Bryan, Ryder and CM Punk to carry the RAW main event, which flopped, a few weeks back.

Jim Cornette talks about Vince McMahon


Paul "Triple H" Levesque's promotion in September 2010 to WWE's Executive Senior Advisor made official what was already informally apparent: Vince McMahon's son-in-law will one day run the sports entertainment empire. Speaking to Power Slam, Jim Cornette comments on whether Levesque is qualified to succeed McMahon as head honcho of WWE.

"Nobody's qualified to replace McMahon," says Cornette. "Vince is one of a kind, a guy who will never come along again.

"Triple H is a student of the business, but he's still got his own little quirks. He's Vince's son-in-law, and he's being groomed for the spot because he thinks in large part like Vince McMahon in terms of what a star is supposed to look like: a jacked-up bodybuilder. So, some things are not going to change. He's probably going to bring a more youthful approach to it, although [Triple H is] in his early 40s. So, he's not exactly youthful—but Vince is 66.

"So, no: nobody's qualified to replace Vince. [Triple H] might do an okay job. But, personally, I think General Patton [Vince] passes on, I think they're in trouble. [WWE is] always going to exist because they have a lot of money in the bank and they've grown into such a global company, but I don't think there's going to be any giant ground broken or revolutionary things done after Vince is gone."

"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan's autobiography to be released in April


WWE Hall of Famer "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan's autobiography has an official release date. Titled Hacksaw: The Jim Duggan Story, it will be released on April 1st, 2012 which is WrestleMania weekend. The book is co-written by Scott Williams and has the following official synopsis: "Offering professional wrestling fans a ringside seat into his adventurous life, WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jim Duggan recounts for the first time key moments and legendary bouts both inside and outside the ring. Known to millions of enthusiasts as a charismatic patriot—with an American flag in his right hand and his signature two-by-four in his left—Duggan here reflects on his early life as a student-athlete on the Southern Methodist University football squad. Drafted by the Atlanta Falcons, Duggan shares how an injury-plagued rookie season curtailed his football ambitions and paved the way for a brighter career in professional wrestling. Rising to fame in the Cold War–era 1980s, Duggan immediately put himself at odds with anti-American "heels" and engaged in legendary feuds with some of the most legendary names in the sport, including the Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, and Andre the Giant. In this who's who of top-tier wrestling, Duggan reveals not only the high points of championship bouts but also the low points that occurred far away from the TV cameras and screaming fans, including his fight against kidney cancer during the prime of his career. With each page peppered with Duggan's charming wit, fans will find much to enjoy and discover about the man they once knew only as "Hacksaw."

Bobby Lashley Says He'd Like To Return To WWE


Bobby Lashley says that he would like to return to WWE sometime in the future. He noted in an interview that he has "unfinished business" and that "there's still something's to accomplish in WWE."

"I'm completely open to going back, I would love to come back and do something big if there was an opportunity presented, I would definitely consider it," he said. "While I would do it, if the chance never came my way then I would be completely content in continuing with what I'm doing at the moment and that's continuing wrestling and trying to become the best possible fighter I can be."
