The Night’s Watch – Halloween 2013

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

New Golden Dream Main EventROH – The main event for Ring of Honor’s “Golden Dream” in Cincinnati this weekend was originally scheduled to feature Adam Cole defending his world title against Kevin Steen, presumably with the winner taking on Michael Elgin at Final Battle in December.  However, here is your new main event for the weekend:

steenbriscoe

The belt over the shoulder of Jay Briscoe is his “real” world championship.  Neither Briscoe nor Steen received a rematch after the conclusion of their respective world title reigns early in the year, and both arguably could lay claim as the top contender after Elgin.  According to Ring of Honor, Steen’s title shot has been postponed due to Cole suffering from the always-irritating “concussion-like syndromes.”

Prichard Slams TNATNA Insider – In an interview on the phenomenal Steve Austin Show podcast, former TNA Senior Vice President Bruce Prichard discussed the goings-on of his former employer.  Aside from detailing that the “Inmates kinda ran the asylum,” he discussed his departure, directing TNA talent, and some of the problems he had with the wrestlers…

“As a matter of fact, and I won’t mention names here, I had a guy that came back one time and it was his return. He gets in the ring, and we shot an angle where the heel had taken him out and he had been gone for like, 6 months. He’s making his big return and he walks right across the ring completely ignoring the heel in the ring, the guy that took him out.

He just completely ignores him, walks right by him then goes to the top rope and raises his hands looking out at the crowd. Then he walks back over to another corner and never acknowledges the heel standing in the ring.

“So when they came back, I jumped up their asses, because A- the babyface should not s**t on the heel and B- the heel, if the babyface did do that to him should have jumped his s**t. The babyface looks at me and says, ‘Well, you heard the crowd. Austin used to do that.’ And I blew a gasket.

“No, motherf****r. Go back and watch. Austin never took his f***ing eyes off of his opponent. Austin walked in the ring and gave the heel the ‘go f*** yourself’ look, went up the top rope and never took his eyes off of the guy in the ring. If the guy went out of the ring, he still kept his eyes on him. And when he walked across, he did that bad motherf***er walk and went across the ring. But he never sold the heel. That way, the heel meant something when he whipped his ass. But you walked out there and just s**t all over the heel and s**t all over the program. And the heel, you let him s**t on you. Those are nuances that people don’t always get.”

Well, s***.

About the World Title…

Impact last week ended with AJ Styles walking out on TNA with the World Title in hand.  We reported earlier this week that Dixie Carter has stripped AJ Styles of the World Championship.  The trifecta is complete; since June, the nation’s top three wrestling promotions (WWE, TNA, Ring of Honor) have all had their top strap vacant.

Dixie Carter is set to announce the future of the world title tonight.  In the meantime, AJ Styles will be down in AAA defending it.  As you probably already know, Styles should be back and proclaiming himself the “real world champion” shortly after the next champion is crowned.

Also On The Show…

A pair of title matches are scheduled for tonight:

  • Gail Kim (c) vs. ODB for the Knockouts Title
  • BroMans (c) vs. James Storm and Gunner

Also, Abyss is advertised in a “Will he make a return?” capacity.  However, it’s unknown as to whether Abyss and his brother Joseph Park will appear together.

VIDEO: The Wyatt Family invades Lavar and Dukes

In a stunning turn of events, Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan crashed the opening of today’s Lavar and Dukes, featuring our own Chad Dukes, on 106.7 The Fan today. If you ask me, Lavar is lucky to have made it out of the segment without being on the receiving end of a Sister Abigail.

Check out the video above, the Eater of Worlds would want it that way. Don’t believe me?

The Shawn Michaels Prepaid Debit Card

SHAWN

While it’s not the first time a professional wrestler has appeared on a credit card, this was an odd find.  Introducing the Shawn Michaels pre-paid Visa debit card from Card.com.  Michaels is the latest name to appear on a card for the company joining other franchises like The Walking Dead, Garfield, Star Trek, and Brett Farve.

No word on if  it automatically “kips up” or  if you become JBL’s indentured servant when your balance gets too low.   One things for sure, this card is going to do what’s bestahhhhh for business.
