Observer with more dicey reporting about the PPV sked and blaming it on "plans change". The schedule is on Vince's desk, just ask for confirmation before you try to scoop everyone.

Well, this is random.

Was this reported and I just happened to miss this news back in October?

I can't remember reading anything about him being sentenced to around two months in a Japanese prison.

I don't think anyone reported he was in prison but I def remember a report about him getting arrested. Honestly I thought he got released and just wasn't gonna ever go back to Japan, but apparently I was mistaken.

The Rock's first appearance came in 2000 as he was on the verge of breaking into Hollywood, and Hogan hosted the show with Mr. T prior to the first WrestleMania.

Cena tweeted on Friday: "So incredibly honored & excited to host @nbcsnl on Dec. 10th. Can't wait to be live from NYC on a Saturday night!!"

The appearance comes as Cena's wrestling schedule has become considerably reduced and his profile outside of WWE has grown. It was also announced earlier this week that Cena would have a role in "The Pact," an upcoming comedy directed by Kay Cannon and also starring Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz.

IPW:UK is the first promotion from outside the U.S. that has been announced for the streaming service, joining previously announced groups like EVOLVE and other WWN promotions, Beyond Wrestling, and House of Hardcore.

Jarrett has been in Los Angeles quite a bit working with A. Smith & Co. Productions on getting a GFW TV project off the ground, so perhaps they intend for Rhodes to be involved there.

With the Bollywood Boyz having signed with WWE for the 205 Live series, obviously they are not coming back to drop the GFW Tag Team belts. I am told some sort of announcement will be made. If I am GFW, I don't even bother with the announcement and just crown new champions.

Japanese wrestling journalist Fumi Saito joins us as well, with an update on American wrestler Matt Sydal's legal situation. Here are the highlights:

Fumi explains the most recent development on Matt: He was in jail for quite some time, over a month or so. It took them eight, nine weeks to have court set. There was finally court this week. He plead guilty right away. It was a rather simple court case procedure. The prosecutor wanted eighteen months in jail or three years probation...He's going to take the probation. That means next week he'll have a verdict, then he goes to the airport and goes home.

Fumi reveals that someone reported Matt to authorities: It was his thirtieth trip to Japan, and they didn't think it was the first time he brought something in...The reason he got caught this time though, this is where things get really mysterious and tricky, Japanese customs in Osaka were informed by somebody that Matthew Joseph Korklan is bringing in certain things.

The setup was acknowledged in court, according to Fumi: It was mentioned in the court too, that customs was informed by somebody, they're not saying who, but that Matthew Joseph Korklan from America is bringing in certain things on certain dates. They knew it.

Fumi on what's next for Matt: He's out on bail now and then the verdict is coming this coming Monday. They'll give him three years probation, no jail time, nothing, he's going home that day.
Some more details regarding Evan Bourne/Matt Sydal's prison time in Japan. Basically got busted because of his rep of bringing drugs into the country.


Some other sheet news includes:
  • For those interested in classic wrestling especially from Memphis, a new book about the promotion and its Top 100 matches was recently released. Book is called "Top 100 Monday Nights In Memphis Wrestling 1974-1989" with wrestling historian Mark James as the author. http://astore.amazon.com/pwincom-20/detail/1537480634
  • According to reports, WWE's plan of "raiding" indie talent from the UK is due to the company getting very worried about losing market share and/or top status for wrestling interest especially now that ITV is getting involved in the market.
  • ITV announced they will be airing the pilot episode for their new World of Sports Wrestling show on New Years Eve at 4pm (British time). http://www.itv.com/presscentre/ep1we...port-wrestling.
  • Lucha Underground recently revealed they expanded their merchandise buying options with Hot Topic now having their products available for purchase. https://twitter.com/LuchaElRey/statu...78022808059904
  • WWE is currently rumored to have promised Adam Cole a NXT title reign as part of the incentives for him to leave ROH once his current deal expires.

According to the Observer, Young Bucks are staying in ROH. Signed a new 2 year deal with the company.

They are also going to have more input into creative, as they were the ones who set the wheels in motion for Matt Hardy's video on the show last night ...

The contracts are exclusive to the U.S. and Japanese market, but it would enable them to do overseas dates that don't coincide with ROH or New Japan bookings. The only exception is they are allowed to continue working PWG dates.

I'm not a big fan of The Young Bucks, so I think it's good they're staying in ROH/New Japan. With American Alpha, The Revival, #DIY, etc. there are plenty of tag teams that need to be solidified before the company goes looking elsewhere.

I can see Adam Cole going to the WWE in April though, wisely extending himself past the WrestleMania season.

Ellsworth's interference was framed as a strategic decision because he thinks he has Styles' number after getting three fluke wins over him.

It is not clear at this point how Styles' injury will play into the match, or if he will be able to wrestle, or be limited in the match since it would likely have been more of an angle than a serious main event style match, or his status as far as house shows since he's the key star of the brand right now.

Mickie faced off against Asuka at the NXT event last month and the match received high praise.

No word as to whether the deal would be for RAW or SmackDown Live, or the length of the contract, but either brand would benefit greatly from having another veteran in their ranks.

The Lawler situation followed the pattern of Jim Ross, where, likely due to age, he was moved from Raw to SmackDown, then given a lesser role on SmackDown, and then the decision was made to remove them from regular television but keep them with the company, although Ross was later let go after controversy regarding his hosting a WWE event that went awry.

Both are still affiliated loosely with the company and may be brought back to television on the WWE Network for special occasions.

Last Sunday's TLC PPV featured a change in pre-show format with radio host Peter Rosenberg as a guest on the panel.

An earlier report from PWI stated TNA was planning on taping some shows during Mania week to take advantage of all the people going to the city for wrestling festivities.

While the end of the 60-day suspension of Paige is good news, she may still be not fit to return to the ring. The 24-year-old girlfriend of former WWE star Alberto Del Rio underwent neck surgery. It could keep her out until 2017.

Aside from that row, there is a looming possibility that Paige may not return to the WWE because of her troubled relationship with the company. WWE could use a reliable hand and personality like Paige right now, but the strained working relationship could come to an abrupt end.

Paige has not spoken to anyone from WWE since the suspension despite attempts from them and close friends trying to reach out to her but Paige has pretty much isolated herself from the locker room and the company which has caused big concern for her.

On episode 110 of Sam Roberts' Wrestling Podcast, WWE SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan talked about whether he enjoys Talking Smack, what he seeks to accomplish with the program, and WWE Superstars do not speak their minds.

Bryan said that there are times that he enjoys Talking Smack, but sometimes he hears on his earpiece that he should not have been saying certain things.
"Sometimes, yeah. I mean, sometimes, I just say things and then, sometimes in my earpiece it's like, 'why are you saying that?' And then, it's like, 'oh…'"

Bryan added, "so my thing with Talking Smack is, I want our talent to look really good. So for example, Baron Corbin was on the show, not last week, but the week before, he was awesome. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It did great and the key is the show is not about Renee [Young] and I, like, we're just hosts - we're just there to bring stuff out of people, to help them."

When Colby finally woke up, he admitted the same and was transported to a local hospital.

Cops searched his residence and found a grinder, a bag of marijuana, hypodermic needles, baggies, suspected mushrooms, multiple purple pill capsules of an unknown substance, a rock like substance suspected of heroin, multiple glass vials of an unknown substance suspected to be steroids and white residue with a cut drinking straw alongside Colby’s driver’s license.

Corino and the other person in the house were hit with the resale charge due to the amount found.

As we previously reported, he’s still behind bars on a $40k bond and set to appear in court this week.

No word on whether this will affect his status with New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Probably safe to assume his NJPW deal is dead considering the strict laws and views on drugs there.

However, I don't know how I feel about this.

On one hand, I think it's great and I'm really happy she's being scouted. Seeing her in the WWE would be really cool and interesting.

On the other hand, I wouldn't want to see her leave freestyle wrestling because she's just so good.

WWE already has a new crop of talents set to report to the Performance Center on 1/3. Heidi Lovelace, Kimber Lee, Nixon Newell and Cheree Crowley (aka Evie) are all expected to be signed and reporting on that date.

There is already another Performance Center tryout week set for early February.

  • PWI currently speculating Dixie Carter is very likely leaving TNA within the near future once everything settles in with Antheme as the new boss of the company. Pretty much said owners/founders selling the company and then stay in charge in any meaningful way never happens in business. Was part of a Q&A article they do weekly.
  • Observer currently debunking rumors of frustration building up in RAW's Women's division based on WWE unwilling to end the Sasha-Charlotte feud and/or not giving more time to the brand's other female wrestlers. The stuff involving Naomi for Smackdown's Women's division wasn't debunked as being meant for potential future storylines though.
  • Sports Illustrated had a recent interview with Edge who revealed if it wasn't for health issues, he wanted to face Christian for his retirement match. http://www.si.com/extra-mustard/2016...shaq-bret-hart
  • Apparently WWE had issues with the cage used for NXT's house show in Melbourne, Australia. Cage itself ended up getting stuck during the lowering process and delayed the show as a result. https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...rrently_stuck/
  • In a "WWE Did You Know" type fact, prior to being involved in the wrestling industry, Vince McMahon used to be a traveling salesman for encyclopedias. https://twitter.com/davemeltzerwon/s...35895823650816

They talked to a lot of former WWE employees including Donna Goldsmith, who was one of the leading people in the company, as well as Sally Presutto, who handled arena bookings, and Brian Gewirtz, who was head writer and now works for Dwayne Johnson.
Turns out Kevin Dunn tried in 2012 to get Shane attempt a hostile ownership takeover of the company in order to force Steph and Triple H out as future owners of the WWE. Been rumored for a while once they take over, Dunn is the first getting fired. Link to the article: https://sports.vice.com/en_us/articl...usiness-empire

An analysis of the report shows that WrestleMania 32 attendance was not, in fact, the 101,763 figure that WWE had been throwing around. It wasn't even in the six figures. According to the documents, the actual paid live attendance for the event was between 74,000 and 86,000. "As long as they don't lie about the financials, they aren't committing fraud," said Chris Harrington, an independent WWE business analyst.

WWE has been doing this for years. There is a discrepancy between attendance numbers submitted to the SEC and those touted in press releases for every single WrestleMania dating back to at least 2008, with an average inflation of about 15,000 spectators. And in 2001, respected wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, writing for his publication Wrestling Observer Newsletter, reported that numbers for WrestleMania III, the event's previous longstanding record, were knowingly fudged. WWE boosted the numbers by more than 13,000 spectators. Meltzer claimed that Vince told him as much—that the numbers shown on television are for "entertainment purposes only."

Inflating attendance numbers exemplifies Vince's approach to the business, doing whatever it takes to maintain a certain image. Moreover, it continues to blur the line between WWE as a real-life, publicly traded corporation and the WWE that exists as it appears on television. Much like how Vince has created a fictionalized version of his family, he seems to have done the same with his company.
Part of Vice's article about the WWE and why the WWE doesn't suffer any legal problems by constantly lying about attendance numbers.

Joanie's mom is attempting to gain control of her daughter's estate – but is trying to do it on a very limited budget, and the legal costs are more than she can handle.

Don't be fooled by the word "estate" - there is not a lot of money left, if any. But Chyna's mom is attempting to do the right thing by allowing whatever personal effects she did leave behind to stay with the family and not with her manager, so that her family may finally be at peace with her loss.

Whatever help you can give will be much appreciated.

What’s notable is that Ron Harris, who was sued along with TNA and Aroluxe, wrote that he was never employed by Aroluxe or TNA during that time period and that “my last employment with TNA was almost ten years ago.” Jason Brown of Aroluxe also stated that they do not employ Ron Harris and he was never authorized to speak in their behalf. Of course, the Aroluxe web site had for a long time listed Ron & Don Harris both as key members of the team. In October, both Harris Brothers names were removed from the Aroluxe site, which would coincide with Anthem Entertainment and The Fight Network funding TNA’s last set of taping. Interestingly, Jason Brown himself is also no longer listed on the Aroluxe site anymore.

Kevin Dunn being gone makes me want to see Stephanie and Hunter take over, but knowing how bad things could be under the Stephanie/Hunter creative vision, I don't want that either. Part of me hopes Vince sells it out from under them all and they put someone else in charge entirely.

  • Tiger Mask W (who was Kota Ibushi the first time) vs. Tiger the Dark -- This is based on the Tiger Mask anime that airs on TV-Asahi.
  • Young Bucks vs. Rocky Romero & Baretta for the IWGP Jr. tag titles
  • A Trios title gauntlet match featuring these teams:
  • SANADA, EVIL & BUSHI
  • Bad Luck Fale, Yujiro Takahashi & Hangman Page
  • Tomohiro Ishii, YOSHI-HASHI & Will Ospreay
  • Champions Satoshi Kojima, Ricochet & David Finlay
  • Cody vs. Juice Robinson
  • Kyle O'Reilly vs. Adam Cole for the ROH title
  • Tama Tonga & Tanga Roa vs. Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma for the IWGP tag team titles
  • KUSHIDA vs. Hiromu Takahashi for IWGP Jr. title
  • Katsuyori Shibata vs. Hirooki Goto for NEVER Openweight title
  • Tetsuya Naito vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi for IC title
  • Kazuchika Okada vs. Kenny Omega for IWGP heavyweight title

The show will air live exclusively on New Japan World with Kevin Kelly and Steve Corino as announcers in English as well as a Japanese language feed. There will be no U.S. television PPV of this show.

Rodriguez got hot at that and the much smaller Extreme tried to push him away, leading to punches being thrown. It was said to be very one-sided and spilled out to where fans saw it happening. Extreme was bleeding pretty badly but said this morning on Facebook that he was okay.

Oficial AK-47, one of the wrestlers in charge of the show, Oficial AK-47 made multiple Facebook posts where he threatened legal action and pretty much warned Rodriguez not to come back to the building.

In asking around, we are told there are no current plans for a Slammy Awards in 2016 on any platform but the idea could always be revived sometime next year.

Styles appeared on Smackdown Live last night and will appear on tonight's Tribute to the Troops broadcast in a non-physical role. During an appearance on "Talking Smack" last night on the WWE Network, Styles stated that he felt he could go if necessary. Obviously, WWE is holding him out of action to prevent further injury while he is healing.

The 12/26 MSG event will feature Styles defending against John Cena and Dean Ambrose in what is also Cena's scheduled return to the company after taking a hiatus to work on his "American Grit" reality series for FOX.

It does not come from a place of malice, spite, or gloating. It comes from a place of joy and a place of happiness. We have a very strong sense of pride in being the Black People simultaneously holding championships in WWE. Historically in our nation, there was period in time where this would not have happened, followed by a long period of time where it became possible, but had not actually materialized. Now, we are in the time in which the possibility has become a reality.

Why does this matter?

It matters because even though it is hard for some to fathom, the fact is that there are many people who feel as though it is impossible to attain certain goals because of the color of their skin. This is why we must acknowledge the color of ours in this instance. It is important for people of all races, but particularly people of color, and especially the youth, to see that it is entirely possible to achieve your dreams and aspirations regardless of your race. We are a shining example who want to be a source of motivation for others to believe in themselves and do the same.

Excellence is not the same as supremacy. #BlackExcellence is not meant to be divisive. For even if you do not fall into the specific category, you can still take enjoyment in our pride, because in the biggest picture, in a society that often focuses on the negative aspects of race relations, what has transpired with the 5 of us speaks positively to the progress we've made as a nation.

OTT: The Dream Before Christmas will take place on December 17th but will stream as a FloSlam World Premiere on December 28th. The show will be headlined by the next match in the rivalry between Ricochet and Will Ospreay. The two high flyers previously faced off in EVOLVE, NJPW, and PWG, with their Best of the Super Juniors match in particular drawing online attention.

FloSlam will also debut OTT's Invasion Belfast show as a World Premiere on December 29th. That event will take place on December 18th before it comes to the service.

Both OTT shows will stream live at 8:30 p.m. ET and will be available for unlimited viewing as part of the FloSlam library.

"At that point, it was December and we had just signed -- we signed in November. He's like, 'You did? Ughhh.' The idea was he was going to try and get us to walk out with him and be the guys with him... If we never signed, there's a great chance we could have been walking out on Raw with those guys, I feel."

PWInsider.com can independently confirm that report and confirm that discussions between the two sides began last Monday 12/5.

We are told that Jarrett has been specifically meeting and talking with Anthem's Ed Nordholm, who is now overseeing the day to day operations of the company. Jarrett has not been at TNA HQ and we are told that the pair went out of their way to meet in secret for "exploratory discussions." We are told that the discussions took place partially so that Nordholm could get more of a background on TNA and different aspects of how the company operated over different time periods.

Pollock reported that there is no agreement at this time for Jarrett to return to the company that he helped found with his father Jerry. As of this morning, that is indeed true.

However, we are told that that should Jarrett return in some form to TNA, whether it be as a performer or in a management style role, that his fledgling Global Force Wrestling promotion would still be an active, viable component of any relationship that comes out of the discussions.
Being speculated TNA's new owners might use the GFW name as a way to rebrand the company and possibly have Jeff Jarrett help on the Creative side of the company.

The website quickly filed for bankruptcy.
