Hump day, power through it with some headlines.
New Hell In A Cell Match (Smackdown Spoiler) – Lords of Pain

New WWE Domestic Violence Policy – Wrestling INC
On the heels of the troubles being experienced by the NFL, WWE has instituted a new domestic violence policy. I’m honestly surprised it’s taken this long for the issue to come up in the world of wrestling.
John Cena: Reality Show Producer – With Spandex
Following in the Rock’s footsteps, John Cena is partnering with the producers of Pawn Stars to develop reality TV shows.
Announced via Stardust’s Twitter, coming soon to WWE Shop are the Stardust plastic mask and his signature gloves.
Soon. But not soon enough for Halloween I’m afraid as the items haven’t hit the WWE Shop website yet, less than two weeks out from Halloween. So in the meantime if you’re planning on emulating the Cosmic One this Halloween you’ll have to go with a homemade costume and makeup. You can however still purchase the Goldust mask if you need a tag team partner.

It’s Monday Monday Monday! Time for another episode of Monday Night Raw! Tonight’s installment emanates LIVE from Kansas City, MO and it’s sure to be a barn-burner, as we are less than one week away from Hell in a Cell. Some pre-show notes:
- Handicap Street Fight: Tonight’s headlining match pits John Cena and Dean Ambrose against the Authority aka Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, and Kane in a handicap street fight. Expect tension and possibly blows between Cena and Ambrose as well, even though the matches for Hell in a Cell have been settled, as the two never really saw eye-to-eye in the first place.
- Go-home Show: Hell in a Cell is this Sunday, so expect the card to get fleshed out tonight and the finishing touches placed on the existing feuds. There are only five matches booked thus far, so at the very least expect Divas and Tag title matches to be set for this Sunday.
- Cell is in the Building: WWE seems to be making a big deal out of the fact that the hell in a cell structure will be hovering over the ring for tonight’s episode of Raw. Perhaps it gets mysteriously lowered and someone gets beat up inside while their would-be savior is trapped on the outside? Maybe so!
Not a lot to go on tonight, so maybe there will be some surprised in store! Either way, check back here tomorrow for the “Day After” report and all your wrestling news and analysis needs!
It’s Monday, another week in the world of pro graps. Let’s get to it.

Ronda Rousey Gets Physical at PWG Event – MMA News
UFC Bantamweight Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey is in the Wrestling News again. Friday night she attended the Pro Wrestling Guerilla event in Reseda, CA and when prompted by Tommaso Ciampa, Rousey chopped his opponent Biff Busick. She’s obviously a big fan, if she is ever available to work for WWE, they’d be stupid not to take her up on it.
