No, he wrestled on the ROH shows in Japan. New Japan didn't want him as a junior but didn't think he was big enough to be a heavyweight and never booked him on one of their shows.

He did have the greatest matches on the 2015 ROH/NJPW Global Wars/War of the Worlds tour.

He killed it with KUSHIDA, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Shinsuke Nakamura, and at Field Of Honor Kazuchika Okada. All in ROH, never in New Japan.

While that match would be amazing, especially in San Antonio (Michaels' hometown the site of the 2017 Royal Rumble), there's no word that a match between AJ Styles and Shawn Michaels is actually being planned by WWE, Styles tweeting the artwork (which we are told was made by a fan) certainly is newsworthy.

He's dropped in rankings since the original announcement although mainly because his stuff sold out and won't be restocked till mid-November. Also the stat only covered new arrivals to WWE's online store and not just shirt merchandise in general.

Vampiro is the new Head of Talent Relations and is also working as an agent at the TV tapings ...

They were trying to get Brian Cage and Rey Mysterio Jr. to work exclusively here (and Lucha Underground), with the caveat of not working any shows anywhere that have CMLL talent, that involve Konnan, L.A. Park or El Hijo del Santo. Mysterio didn’t agree to it

"As demonstrated in the memorandum of law filed herewith, plaintiff is likely to prevail on the merits of its claims because Impact Ventures LLC is insolvent, and, as a result, plaintiff is entitled to exercise controlling voting rights in the company pursuant to an equity pledge agreement between the plaintiff, Ms. Salinas [Note from Mike: Dixie Carter] and Impact Ventures. Furthermore, if not enjoined, defendants' conduct will cause irreparable hard to Plaintiff."
One of the claims recently revealed from Corgan's lawsuit. According to the judge, neither Dixie nor anyone on TNA's management will be allowed to sell the company till the case is finished. Also Corgan gets final say for any potential new deals during this time as terms of the restraining order against Dixie. Courts also get final say over any sale regarding TNA's assets while the case is active.

Terms from Corgan's lawsuit in regards if TNA refuses to admit they are insolvent or they broke the agreement with Corgan when he helped fund the company.

Just five years ago, TNA’s total revenue, largely due to Spike, was multiples of New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Since then, each company went in opposite directions. One created stars and put on great shows even with a major television handicap of a horrible time slot. The other squandered talent and did angles that nobody bought, thinking it was the only way, and made no stars. New Japan is now multiple times ahead of TNA, even in the United States where New Japan’s audience, when you factor in the homes available, is roughly identical to that of TNA -- even on a far worse television night and airing matches ten months old.

In fact, TNA was even able to be profitable for a time, although it overextended itself in 2010 when trying to directly challenge WWE, signing Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Mick Foley, Eric Bischoff, Kevin Nash, Jeff Hardy, and Rob Van Dam, and moving to Monday nights. The second Monday Night War was hardly like the first one. Instead of a legendary conflict, it was pro wrestling’s equivalent to the 1967 Six Day War, a quick and painful one-sided massacre.

A mistake was made right off the bat as instead of starting one hour earlier in a move that would give TNA the edge, Bischoff made the call to go head-to-head. That may have ended up making no difference in the long run as they did switch time slots weeks later, but that didn’t work out either and they were quickly off Mondays.

The other killer financially was a move that seemingly had to be made: moving out of Orlando and touring arenas for television tapings although they couldn’t make it work fiscally,

TNA is still alive today, although it is in intensive care and the pulse is weakening. The health issues may date back to that period mentioned above, but the critical condition dates back to July 15, 2014."
Observer was able to pin point the date when everything went downhill for TNA leading to their on-going financial crisis. They actually managed to rebound a bit from the disaster Hogan and Bischoff did to the company in 2010 but mid-2014 is when it became impossible for TNA to recover under Dixie.

On Bischoff on Wrestling, James Ellsworth explained that AJ Styles protected him when he tucked his chin taking the Styles Clash. This is what he had to say:

I got it back at the last second. He took care of me too. In practice everything was fine and all that. It’s just that instinct thing for a wrestler to, “tuck your chin.” That’s the one move you don’t do it on. I felt so bad about it afterwards. They were all cool about it and everything because it looked good on TV. It looked like he killed me. It’s not like it looked bad or anything. It was just that instinct of, “tuck your chin.” I’ve been told to do it for fourteen years and that’s all it was. I was ok. It was fine. I didn’t get hurt obviously and AJ is, like I said earlier in my humble opinion, is the best in the world. He knows how to adjust to things and everything was ok afterwards.

Claimed Corgan has been trying to replace people on TNA's management with more pro-Corgan people to give him a better chance at owning the company.
  • According to TNA's former head of talent Bruce Prichard, TNA's management used to do several scummy things in order to delay paying talent with the worst being them legit not bothering to mail the checks to them. https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...na_pay_issues/

I get that he's been injured for the better part of a year, but he was there a while before he got injured the first time.

I was starting to sour on KENTA before he came to WWE. His best years were 2005-2010. He's never been the same since he tore his ACL before coming to WWE.

Also Daniel Bryan retiring really hurts Hideo Itami's appeal. I remember when they signed KENTA there was one match I wanted to see him involved in at WrestleMania; Hideo Itami vs. Daniel Bryan. They had two classics in ROH, the one from Glory By Honor V Night 2 is considered to be the best match in company history by quite a few. They also had quite a few awesome battles in Noah in Japan, I believe one even went 60 minutes. There styles meshed so well. It's a shame we'll never get to see what they could do in a WWE environment.
That is exactly the point.

The reason good wrestlers like that are down there is so some of the hosses that have no training can actually get better, which they aren't going to do if you take the talented ones away like Neville and Balor without offering someone to replace that talent, like Itami, Joe, and Nakamura. I expect those guys will be called up when they can be replaced so the actually rookies down there can learn and get some experience.

It's up to the great talent to make chicken salad with chicken shit.

With that said, it's professional wrestling. Injuries happen. Yeah someone green injured Itami. Former world champion Seth Rollins injured Balor. Who's to say that wouldn't happen if Itami was on the main roster?

Injuries happen.
Yeah, and those matches were fine. When he's allowed to work his style, he's fine. Itami was one of those pre-Joe signings that they felt they had to give the WWE makeover. Some of it is really good -- I like his ring garb and entrance theme. They are trying to emphasize some of his strengths presentation-wise. I don't like the wrestling re-education though. A large part of what you're talking about in the matches that weren't as good as the Neville/Balor ones, etc. is because he's holding back and trying to work like a more generic wrestler.

It is too late for the dude to re-train himself. If you don't want him on your roster -- that's fine. That's your prerogative. But I don't see the sense in hiring these international stars and then telling them "Hey, don't do what got you over in the first place." Itami is never going to work like The Miz or be able to project his personality like The Rock. You're slowing him down to the benefit of no one.

Some veterans having a presence in NXT is definitely a good thing. I've been vocal in the past about the WWE signing Tajiri and Nick Dinsmore and allowing Finlay to wrestle. I doubt he'd do it full-time, but I'd be interested in seeing Lance Storm come back too. I'm also fine with Mickie James coming back to work with Asuka. I'd like to see more main roster guys cycled down into NXT to keep things fresh and allow regenerate themselves so they don't get stale. Fandango & Tyler Breeze, The Shining Stars, Curtis Axel, Dolph Ziggler and Cesaro would all benefit from some NXT glory, in my opinion.

My problem is with bringing in these guys that are as ready as they will ever be and letting them idle in developmental. Joe has a good shot at being a noteworthy performer for WWE. His intensity is incredible, and he can actually promo. Not just talk, but promo. Nakamura is electric. He shouldn't be on television every week, but he could be a huge deal showing up every couple of RAWs or SmackDowns. Austin Aries has been leaving me cold, but as I've said, I'm all for him being a side-player in the Bobby Roode story. Sign James Storm and call-up Austin Aries and Roderick Strong to serve as an anti-New Day faction. Maybe Strong will catch some personality by osmosis?

Some veterans working with the younger talent is good, but you also need to remember why you truly signed some of these guys in the first place. If it was to give them a shot, then give them a shot.

The drop-off of just over 300,000 viewers from hour one to hour three was one of the bigger such drops in recent weeks. Percentage-wise, it was the fifth largest drop since April 18th, which was two weeks after WrestleMania.

Carter has denied that the company is insolvent in court documents, stating that the company's assets are worth more than their current debts.

The lawsuit alleges that Corgan initially invested into TNA because "Impact Ventures was in severe financial distress" and that by investing, he was preventing the company from suspending operations and going into "immediate foreclosure" to Aroluxe Media, described as the company's production company. PWInsider.com first broke in April 2016 [Elite subscribers, click here] that the way Dixie Carter's deal was structured with Aroluxe, they were putting out the financial cost of TNA's TV productions and TNA would pay them back installments - and if Carter failed to make the payments, she could lose control of the company. Well, that was the very scenario that, as if turns out, led to Corgan stepping in last June.
Portion of the details from the unsealed file revealing Aroluxe Media were ready to take over as the new owner of TNA till Corgan stepped in. Had to do it a couple other times to prevent Aroluxe's potential takeover based on terms TNA had with the company.

On November 30, 2015, BankDirect entertained in an agreement where it would pay TNA $400,146.00 so TNA could pay certain insurance premiums and TNA agreed to make ten monthly payments of $41,032.45 with the first payment on November 13, 2015.

Similar to other streaming services, all events will be available for a $20/month subscription with a deeper discount for a one-year committal. FloSports is available on both AppleTV and Roku, making it easier for users to access the service.

In conjunction with the announcement, FloSports officially launched FloSlam, a pro wrestling focused website that will feature the streams, news, and documentaries.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but it is a five-year deal that will cover roughly 60 shows yearly. It begins on November 4th with SHINE 38.

In addition to groups like FIP, SHINE, WWN Supershow and Dragon Gate, the Evolve wrestling inclusion makes this partnership all the more interesting given WWE’s recent interest in bringing on more independent wrestling as part of a tiered Network package as well as their past working relationship with Evolve.

An added layer: WWE recently was part of a group that invested in FloSports. Unless a deal can be worked out, WWE will have to look elsewhere for new sources of non-WWE wrestling content.
PWG so far has been the only indie promotion to reject offers to join FloSports new streaming service. Being rumored ROH agreed to a deal to be on the service.

Jim Ross has posted his latest blog online. On rumors of AJ Styles facing Shawn Michaels at the 2017 Royal Rumble PPV, he wrote:

“The odds of Shawn Michaels wrestling at the Royal Rumble vs AJ Styles is a definite long shot as HBK has stressed to me on multiple occasions including the Ross Report podcast that he's done with in ring activities in the wrestling biz. However, Shawn is a 'company man' and if WWE really needed a main event that could move a large amount of tickets in San Antonio at the Alamo Dome, I think that HBK would consider the company's request. Without question, a Michaels vs Styles match in San Antonio at the Royal Rumble would be coveted by all involved if it were to occur. I'd realistically put the odds of this main event happening at less than 50-50 but I'd love to be wrong on this one.”

Some other sheet news includes:
  • WWE recently signed former NFL player Demetrius Bronson to a developmental deal.
  • WWE recently released a Top 10 video for Hell in a Cell moments as part of the hype for this weekend's ppv. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXQSZ151VKA
  • Pro Wrestling Sheet recently leaked a set of emails between Dixie/TNA and Billy Corgan pretty much proving Dixie is lying about the claims in Corgan's lawsuit. https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...in_posts_them/
  • Also the recent unsealed Corgan lawsuit files revealed Corgan never actually held any real ownership stakes in TNA unliked previous reports implied or stated (around the 30% range). Likely a big reason why Corgan put in strict terms for newer deals with TNA to not get potentially ripped off again.
  • According to a recent episode of the Observer Radio show, WWE is currently undecided on having Sasha-Charlotte open or close the upcoming Hell in a Cell ppv. Implied WWE doesn't want the match to be near the middle of the card since Vince fears people might start to walk out or no longer care about the rest of the event due to that match having the most public interest.https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...otte_vs_sasha/

This was the lowest rating for SmackDown since the July 14th episode of the show, which did 2.068 million viewers. That was the last time the show did not air live and was the final episode before the draft special.

The free Wrestlemania promotion saw 370,000 free users at the time of WWE's big event with 1.454 million paid ...

- Q3 revenue was $164.2 million, "on par" with 2015 Q3 revenue.

- Revenue to date is up 8% to $534.3 million.

- Their video content had 11.5 billion views on social media and digital platforms, way up from last year.

- Raw ratings were down 14% from the year prior while SmackDown was up 13%. In the same timeframe, USA Network was down 11% while the top 25 cable networks were down 6%.

- Social media followers and engagement totals continue to increase.

- Live event attendance was slightly down from Q2 in North America, but slightly up internationally. However, revenue was up.
Possible the 1.5 million range might be the peak of what the WWE can get with the Network if sub numbers have already started to decline. 1.4 million to 1.5 million would still keep them in the break even range but well below the 2+ million they were expecting by now.

As we previously reported, Chyna’s mother recently requested that detectives take a closer look into the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s death — in particular, claims made by her former manager in the wake of her passing.

Hojo at first didn’t make a final decision and there is some question if she can pass the physical because she’s had two major concussions in the last two years. In July, when WWE ran at Sumo Hall, Hojo was introduced to Nakamura through Simon Inoki, who knew her because they had worked together when Hojo did an IGF tour. Nakamura pushed to Hojo that she’d do great in WWE. Hojo most recently told the Stardom office that she’s interested in going to WWE. Stardom officials believe Shirai is gone for sure, but they are working to keep Hojo and Hojo then said she’s not sure what she’s going to do.

There is a belief that Hojo doesn’t want to go to WWE so much as prove she’s better than Shirai. Among the fans, Hojo has always been No. 2 to Shirai because Shirai is considered the better wrestler of the two, even their hardcore Stardom fans like Hojo more. It’s been pushed to Hojo that if she stays, she’ll be the No. 1 female wrestler in Japan, but if she goes to WWE, that will never happen, and that because Shirai is the “bigger star” and better looking in WWE’s eyes along with being a better wrestler, that she would never surpass her going there.
Would be a huge blow to Stardom if they lose both of their top stars.

WWE Survivor Series takes place at Toronto's Air Canada Centre on November 20th. Traditionally one of the biggest shows of the year, Survivor Series will be WWE's first inter-brand PPV since August's SummerSlam, but SmackDown may be heading towards it without one of their biggest stars.

The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer is reporting that Randy Orton will be taking some time off in November, including the PPV. Meltzer reports that Orton's wife is expected to give birth to a baby girl on Nov 22nd, and that The Viper has been granted the week off beforehand. He is not scheduled to return until Nov 29th's SmackDown Live.

This year's Survivor Series features three traditional Raw vs. SmackDown elimination matches. Not only will SmackDown be shorthanded on that front, but it looks like Orton's ongoing storyline with Bray Wyatt will also need to wait. As it stands, Orton will miss two full weeks of television.

In addition, the Los Angeles Times have reported that Orton is on the move after selling the St. Charles, MO home he built in 2013. The 2,600 square foot house went for $775,000, and it is believed that he'll be moving to a bigger home to accommodate the new addition to the family.

CrossingBroad is reporting that Philadelphia has submitted a bid for Wrestlemania 34 in 2018.

Citing an anonymous WWE tipster, Crossing Broad says Philadelphia has submitted a plan to host the event at Lincoln Financial Field, with NXT and RAW events held at the Wells Fargo Center, and a FanFest held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Baring any surprise announcements like with the Rumble, Mania 34 likely between Minnesota and Philly for the host. Link to the article: http://www.phillymag.com/business/20...a-philly-2018/


Some other sheet news includes:
  • Mandy Rose is currently facing some online backlash due to a recent post she made on Snapchat insulting black women's hair. http://www.bet.com/celebrities/news/...l?sf39973188=1
  • Sports Illustrated had a recent article written by Cody Rhodes about the relationship he used to have with his father prior to his passing. http://www.si.com/extra-mustard/2016...n-relationship
  • According to F4W, Becky Lynch is currently rumored to be getting a lot less promo in the future due to WWE's head of production, Kevin Dunn, hating her accent and can't stand hearing her voice. Wouldn't be the first time Dunn despised something in women's wrestling in the WWE based on past stories by former employees.
  • According to a recent episode of the Observer Radio show, WWE is pretty much split between Vince and everyone else in regards to Sasha-Charlotte being the real main event for Hell in a Cell ppv. Vince doesn't want the match to go last and currently has final say for the card's order.
  • According to the Observer, Vince McMahon would consider selling the WWE to a new owner but only if the price was right. Was part of a recent Q&A session held with investors in regards to UFC's recent sale for around $4 billion. https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...wwe_were_open/
  • In a "WWE Did You Know" type fact, had Eric Bischoff managed to purchase WCW in 2001, Joey Styles would have been Nitro's new lead announcer due to talks both had around the time. Styles revealed this during a recent episode of Bischoff's podcast show.
  • Papa Shango's Curse recently claimed another victim in the WWE after Austin Aires got injured in the face against Nakamura during a NXT house show match. http://www.dailywrestlingnews.com/ph...ed-last-night/

In one of those rare occasions, I can actually see where Dunn is coming from.

Lynch's voice is just awful but I know it's not her fault and she can't really do much about that. It's just the voice she was given.

I have mentioned my dislike of her voice before and how she should be kept away from a mic, but also how maybe she should have a manager to do her talking for her. Maybe that would help in some way, I dunno.

Honestly, I would go the other way. Everyone is so samesy, bland and boring and things like this just make it even harder for people to stand out.

WWE relentlessly pushing out hours and hours and hours of content with the same matches and samsy, tired characters with no edge whatsoever is the reason I don't watch anymore.

Let people be individuals and bring back some exciting characters and stories. Cutting down on differences even further should be the last thing they do.

I would give her MORE mic time and not "generic face promos"....... Couple times on WWE.com and on Talking Smack I have thought she has been "very good" on the mic..... but for some reason she never gets to actually show it on the main show, though.

On KENTA:For me there are two things that really hurt him the first was Finn Balor the second was getting hurt by aforementioned green asshole.

Everything about Just Finns presentation (from kENTA introducing him as his mystery Partner to Finn showing up to Takeover as The Demon) blew KENTA outta the water and its sad.I still want him to face Joe and Nakamura but right now they just seem to be trying to build him back up.

About Kevin Dunn, fuck that Beaver Faced dick-hole

The fans don't seem to mind Lynch's voice and her accent while a little hard to understand at times is a welcome change she stands out more and as champ she should.

My guess it's the accent but imo opinion that gives someone a bit more personality. it sets them apart.
Imo a gimmick works alot better if the wrestler is able to put a little of themselves into it

I do get that the accent is thick, but it can add charm. "Becky Balboa, baby!" I've mapped out how the next two years could realistically go for the WWE, and Asuka vs. Becky Lynch is my SmackDown Women's Title match at WrestleMania 34 in Philly, where Becky wins and becomes a three-time Women's Champion.

She works a lot better when she's not scripted. She's got that plucky girl next door personality people love. Just let her talk and find her own voice to connect with the audience.

Anthem takes 85% of the control of the company, as Corgan's attorneys learned through their discovery. Aroluxe takes a secondary ownership stake of 10%, setting up their own CEO Jason Brown as the CEO of Impact Ventures for at least three years. Dixie Carter retains a small ownership stake at 5%. Anthem would then fund the company going forward and for the short-term, the company would tape TV 3-4 times a year and that would be it.

What will be interesting to follow is this: if Corgan ends up out, that's the exit of someone who was extremely well liked within the locker room while Carter would remain in some capacity. Corgan had a lot of communication with the talents in comparison to the other parties involved in current ownership, including Dixie Carter, and was seen as a babyface in the scenario by a lot of (but not all) of the wrestlers. If Carter retains her power, going forward, she then has to deal with the fact that she told the locker room she would not let WWE buy the company, when court documents revealed that not only was she willing to let that happen, but there were talks of a sale all the way back to June of this year. Just a few days before her locker room talk, WWE submitted a non-binding offer to purchase the company's library and assets - which means that unless WWE was going to take all the talents (we are told by a WWE source that they believe that was not the case), everyone involved would have been out of a job. Carter told talents on 10/3 she wasn't letting a sale happen. On 9/25, Dean Broadhead was sending WWE documentation that was requested to help WWE follow through with due dilligence. That is quite the bridge Carter is going to have to mend with the locker room.

Quote:
Lesley Floyd, a lawyer in the state of Tennessee, cited to Fightful.com Tennessee Code Ann. 45-151-1005, which she says could very well destroy Corgan's case. According to this, you're not able to make a title pledge loan in the state of Tennessee without being registered. Corgan isn't registered, and it very well could ruin the case for him.

Floyd notes that unless Corgan got licensed under an entity name, it's quite possible that he could walk away with nothing. That statute that Floyd cites could mean that he also may have forfeited the rights to repayment from Dixie Carter and TNA as well.

Chancellor Hobbs Lyle will rule on the matter Monday, but TNA has a bevy of lawsuits to handle outside of Corgan's.

A new 10-Q filing from WWE shows that a "wrestling contract extension" between WWE and Stephanie McMahon was recently signed.

The contract extension will see Stephanie stay with the company at least through October 7th, 2019. The deal will then be extended yearly until either party gives a 90-day notice prior to the termination date.

AAA is already losing a ton of talent.
Might have been fired from just AAA but gets to stay or finish whatever commitments he has with Lucha Underground. Fenix is another who left AAA but got to stay on LU although rumored he might have to leave LU as well due to some demands AAA recently made.

Dates for the tapings had been moved because TNA claimed they couldn’t book travel due to the restraining order by Billy Corgan. The restraining order regarded selling assets, not locking them up from booking travel for a taping, so this sounds like one of those TNA excuses. One person close to the situation regarding the Hardy tapings noted to us that they have no idea what is and isn’t real because both sides are trying to sell everyone on their particular spin, and it’s maddening.

He then wrote that they still needed to test his eye medication and foot cream.

The problem is, when Lesnar filled out his medical form on if he was taking any medication prior to his fight with Mark Hunt, actual question being “any medication, drug, cream, inhalant, intravenous infusions, or injection, whether prescription, over-the-counter, from anyone or anyplace, in the last month,” Lesnar responded, “No.” Right there alone could be viewed as lying on his commission medical form, which is a suspendable violation if he was taking something, since the medical forms are considered legal documents, which would add a new count against him. Lesnar did claim to be using multivitamins, creatine and protein powder when asked what nutritional supplements he had been using.

Lesnar remains on the temporary suspended list meaning in the states that do license pro wrestlers, Lesnar would not be allowed to perform, and he’s facing potential suspensions from both USADA (which wouldn’t apply to pro wrestling in his case because contractually he’s exempt from the company’s Wellness policy, although as the Billy Gunn precedent showed, if it was someone else, they could suspend or fire him for the positive test) and separate discipline from Nevada (which would be a suspension from pro wrestling in every state that still licenses pro wrestlers, which isn’t many and Lesnar doesn’t wrestle many matches so it’s may not come into play at all).

Some other sheet news includes:
  • ESPN had a recent interview with Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch: http://www.espn.com/espnw/culture/fe...men-revolution
  • Baring any late changes, F4W is reporting Sasha-Charlotte will not be the real main event of Hell in a Cell ppv due to Vince refusing to drop his stance on not wanting it to go last.
  • Update to recent Kevin Dunn hating Becky Lynch's accent rumors as Becky recently tweeted a response to the rumors regarding her accent. https://twitter.com/BeckyLynchWWE/st...52352019116033
  • According to the Observer, WWE flubbed some of their numbers from the recent fiscal report and investors meeting. WWE claimed they made $100 million in profits for the quarter when in reality they made $11 million in profits plus another $9 million for dividends. In terms of actual cash reserves, they lost around 34.8 million compared to last year ($102.4 million to 67.6 million).

If he loses, he could always trademark "Feed Me Moar" instead.
