TNA has released The Naturals, Chase Stevens and Andy Douglas. No word on why the two have been released.

That really sucks since they are a very talented tag team. On the other hand they were being wasted by TNA so there is a chance for them to do better for themselves. Who knows, maybe WWE would be interested in them. Wouldn't be a bad investment to at least give the Naturals a try.

The problem as I understand it was that TNA stopped pushing them because Douglas was perceived as bitching above his station, which is a definite no no in the political world of wrestling. Stevens there was no heat on, so releasing him is definitely a surprise, many people tend to think this dosen't bode well for Austin Aries at this point with the company, but with ROH getting PPV, and giving out contracts that include medical benefits for some performers (I assume the core guys that have been there forever) plus the fact those contracts only bar a talent from working for WWE or TNA at this point and not from taking other bookings, it makes sense to me that Aries simply leave TNA where he's booked into a comedy angle with Bob Backlund, and just go work in ROH where I'm told he's a fairly integral player.

HOLY CRAP! Did anybody elese check Smackdown! ? I know you people in the US don't get it till tommorow but GOD what an ending!

never, in a million years woulda expected it. enen though it happened before that was completely out of the blue...

Also it's good to see Mark Henry back, hope he feuds with Batista so that Taker and "you'lll find out tommorow" will feud.

I've been avoiding the spoilers so I'm looking forward to tonight. Course I couldn't help but see the overall outcome, but I think I can still get into the show without that bothering me.

It's funny, Edge is the first under 40 year old WHC since Rey Mysterio last year.

And they wonder why the champions keep getting injured.

Taker's out til next year, so look for an Edge/Kennedy/Batista feud, with the possibility of Rey Mysterio returning at SummerSlam to face Edge or Kennedy, and the Undertaker returning to face Mark Henry..again.

Waste of talent.... Conway could have been good but was treated as a joke for the most part, and Scorpio ended up getting paid to stay at his house... I'm guessing Scorpio will go back to Japan and continue working there.

Opening match was damn good, and of course the outcome to the last was crazy. Not too sure where Henry will fit into this whole thing just yet, but it's still cool to see Edge with a title again.

So... they fired Scorpio without ever using him? He got paid to sit at home... Real smart WWE.

That was my feeling too, Scorpio was never gonna main event, but he could have been a solid mid-card hand to help work with younger talents they want to make something of. A complete waste there.

Conway was never really impressive or a stand out, yeah WWE hadn't really tried, but if your the kind of worker that just stands out no matter what they do with you, you eventually rise up and get a shot. I'm surprised Conway hadn't been released earlier, he got all he could from WWE.

As part of a tag team, conway was ok, but after that there was really nothing for him. So yeah I'm surprised he didn't get released sooner too.

Edge will be defending his title against Batista at Judgment Day. I think Edge will win, even though he is really out muscled in this one.

Fairly soon Rey Mysterio will be back in action. Probably sometime in June or July. It will be good to see him in the ring again, but lets just hope he is better booked then when we last saw the guy.

In house show reports from this weekend, Funaki lost bouts to Antony Kulakowski, billed from Pier 6 NYC. Kulakowski is actually former ECW World Tag Team champion Roadkill, who has been recreated with a new persona during his time working in Ohio Valley Wrestling.

Good to see Roadkill being used... Maybe this means we'll be seeing him on TV in the near future.

yeah, but hey, at least he is getting some ring time, even if it's just a house show. More than what Scorpio got.

spekaing of that:

NWA has officially ended its working relationship with TNA Wrestling, which has existed since 2002. There have been reports for months that the partnership was coming to an end. TNA recently had new TNA World, Tag Team and X-Division title belts created. It is expected they will be introduced at this week's television tapings.

Which is why we got a screwy ending in that match.... Angle had Sting in the Anklelock, who was pinning Christian with a schoolboy pin. Sting tapped out before the three count and Angle was given the title... It wouldn't surprise me if they vacate the title and have the winner of the King Of The Mountain win the new TNA title... Hopefully it will be Joe.

And Angle winning was probably done to add Kurt's name to the lineage of the NWA title.... Which would mean another notch in Angle's belt.

Agreed, the finish was fucky so all those guys can be seeded into that match and we can have a definite "TNA World Champion".

I don't think so, honestly, the NWA name means nothing at this point and if ECW hadn't tried to build the belt up so they could throw it down and give meaning to their own World title, nobody in this generation would know or care about the NWA. It's all high school gymnasium shows at this point, and people who are marks for that belt think it matters. I think this was purely for TNA to spotlight the new belt, and the fact that they are creating a TNA World belt without really acknowledging the change from the worthless albatross that the NWA name was.

A Benoit/Edge fued would be awesome. We would get some really great matches out of those two.

Raw was ok, though not the best I've seen. Too much filler for my taste and not enough solid matches. the Hardy match and the main event were the standouts for me.

i know exactly what you're talking about, a totaly dirty guy VS a totaly clean guy. but i still think benoit will find some way around edge's "knock out the ref and go straight for under the ring" tactics.

I can't say this surprises me. I don't think that any gimmick he would have been given after his cross-dressing period would have been taken seriously after that monstrosity.

I'll do you one better (or worse)

Former ECW World champion Sabu is gone from World Wrestling Entertainment, according to several sources. Sabu arrived hours late for tonight's scheduled Smackdown/ECW taping in Baltimore, Maryland and didn't even have his ring gear with him. I am told he was sent home from the taping and has been/will be released by the company.

Sabu, one of the trendsetters of the original Extreme Championship Wrestling, signed with WWE a year ago as part of the re-launched ECW brand. Sabu received a big push early in the brand's run, including challenging ECW champion Big Show at last year's Summerslam PPV before being deemphasized as a focal point.

To be honest, I'm surprised it took this long for Sabu to get released.

Agreed, he's been depushed a lot over the last few months, and he was definitely just becoming a pain in the company's ass, he was basically looking to get fired and he got his wish. Really hard to feel bad for Sabu here as it seems to me this is what he really wanted, and I have no doubt he'll be fine on the indies when his no-compete expires.

I liked Sabu, he has great talent in the ring, but they didn't seem to be doing much with him, especially in the last few months.

I think the WWE has too many people on there rosters and nothing to do with them. If they would take out a lot of the filler they have and put in a few more matches they wouldn't have to release people all the time because they don't have anything to do with them.

Sabu really could have done a lot better in WWE, but things just didn't pan out that way.. Damn.

Vito getting fired doesn't surprise me at all. I honestly though it was going to be a lot sooner than later.
