Is anyone else looking forward to a Kennedy and Jeff Hardy feud? They put on a great match tonight. I've noticed that Jeff is keeping the high risk moves on a low, maybe he is getting groomed for the main event scene? Or is this just wishful thinking?

Good to see HBK back. I've got to say, I'm also liking the old five o' clock shadow.

That super kick was great. Randy sold it like he had been shot. An HBK/Orton fued would be good, but since he and HHH are back, whats stopping them from being DX? Think the title hunt will make them rivals again?

Haha, yeah. If there's one thing Randy's good at other than being a great villain, it's selling moves.

I hope that HHH and HBK stay apart or feud with each other. Eventually I got bored of Raw turning into Monday Night Cock Jokes.

Also, HBK kinda looks like a hobo now.

Hobo? I was thinking more like Chuck Norris or Ted Nugent >_>

Speaking of Walker Texas Michaels... The RAW ME has been announced, kinda.

It will be Rand E. Orton vs either Jeff Farty, Kenneth Kennedy or Walker Texas Michaels. One of these men (HBK) will face Orton at Cyborg Sunday!

I don't know about you guys, but I'm voting for Kennedy regardless. Even though HBK will undoubtedly win.

Cyber Sunday's the one where you can't mass vote to get what you want, right? And undoubtedly, the mark community would make it impossible for anyone other than HBK to win.

Exactly. But I'm just putting ill-aligned hope in Kennedy here. Is that so wrong?

Did they say when voting starts?

Kennedy has a legit shot if enough fans vote for him, but HBK is the shoe in for it. Not sure why they chose to put Hardy in that catagory. Shouldn't he defend the IC title?

That's what I was thinking. If somehow Jeff wins the vote, there isn't a chance of him leaving with both championships. It just won't happen. Besides, a PPV based on fan interaction will surely require more fan decision over title defenses/matches, and at the moment it appears that one title match has been struck out already, provided that they aren't currently considering the option that Hardy might compete in two matches in one night. And isn't Jeff supposedly starting a feud with Kennedy in the first place?

[News Update] Chris Jericho Comments On WWE Return

London's Daily Star newspaper recently interviewed Chris Jericho and asked him to address the rumors of a return to WWE.

Here's what Chris Jericho said about returning to WWE:

You never know. I did it before and I can do it again. I've been gone for two years and that's a lifetime in wrestling. I seem to be caught in a controversial buzz at the moment. I'm a little confused as there's a lot of speculation but as always in these situations I'm the last to know.

These stories seem to swim around every three to four months since I left WWE. It's good to know fans are bringing my name up - there's nothing wrong with people talking about Chris Jericho. I always said if I were to go back I would only go if I could make a difference and be better than ever.

I don't have to come back at all, certainly not financially. I want to have some fun, be different and be better. I walked away on my own terms, so it's good to see I still have as much leeway two years later.

To be honest, I am pissed off that Kennedy got pinned cleanly. Isn't he supposed to be the next big deal? I am sick and tired of Vince burying talents.

Actually, you can mass vote as many times as you want, but it is not going to make a difference because all the kids who reach their periods seeig HBK back are going to mass vote for him. Can you outvote 20000 (to say the least) kids? Doubt it.

Everyone Dave Scherer has spoken with in WWE says it's a done deal, Jericho is back, and is in likelihood viral man (unless they decide to pull a swerve and put this on the new Hart Foundation as was the original Curt Bauer suggestion before he left). I don't blame Jericho for playing it this way though, the idea that he might return is creating a ton of buzz around him and WWE at the moment, and WWE loves to have their surprises. I expect they'll let the cat out of the bag come Cyber Sunday if not a little sooner.

Quick Diva Search rant:

Why the fuck would anyone wanna vote in, or pay attention to any of this crap? I mean, they just give all these chicks deals anyway, the winner just gets a little more money. So what does any of it matter?

Just had to put that out there, I'll stop now. In the interest of not being completely negative, I think ECW on Sci Fi has been enjoyable so far. I like that they had Dreamer and V go at it again, even though the result was never in doubt. I think that could be a decent little feud when V and Punk get finished. The Miz/Balls angle lacks in some respects for me just because it was something TNA has already basically done. But I am glad of Balls getting a push because I think he has always been underrated and deserves this oppurtunity, and I guess as long as the fans are happy and the matches are good, that's all that matters.

Morrison vs. Punk interests me because it looks for all the world to me like this may be a public de-emphasizing of Morrison to a degree, which I think should happen to a degree. The guy fucked up hard in a situation where the company dosen't need their guys failing Wellness Tests. Keep him at or near the top by all means, but push and give the title to guys like Punk or V who are working hard to produce and are not taking short cuts or doing things to embarrass the company (that we know about anyway).

With any luck, they'll face each other again and have Kennedy win. They could have a back and forth feud which would climax in a match for the IC title. Maybe a ladder match. Kennedy is already built up enough to be a main eventer, so I can see him losing the feud and moving on to bigger things. This is a good feud to start building up Jeff as well.

I agree that ECW was solid tonight, but it still lacks something, namely time. WWE has been trying to keep guys like Thorn, Knox, Burke, Boogey and even Stevie in the public eye while they have the title fued going and any other side story they have. They simply do not have enough time to fit all these guys on the show. If they could get another hour they could still feature Punk, Morrison, BDV, and Dreamer as well as the side story of Balls/Miz while also developing an undercard. Shame we won't get that extra time.

The next Cyber Sunday vote is up.

I actually don't know who to vote for on this one, but I'm leaning towards Morrison or Miz. You?

I'm looking at it from the perspective of the match quality, so my vote goes to... John Morrison! Just as long as Punk retains at Cyber Sunday, of course.

That's how I went in the end. From past experience it's clear that the Punk/Morrison matches are a lot better than Punk/Miz or Punk/BDV. I just want Cyber Sunday to be good, without a load of screwy finishes. Rare for a PPV nowadays, but still.

These heel votes don't really work. Fans aren't going to vote for the person who has the most heat, not if the heel did his job well. It'll probably be Miz getting into the match, because the fans see him as easy target for Punk.
I dunno whether to vote for Morrison or the Walking Refrigerator.

I voted for Morrison, as I enjoy the majority of his bouts with Punk, despite the fact they were rarely given the time to work. I would have voted for BDV, if only they didn't pull the illogical move of having him DQ himself then come out the next show seemingly disinterested in Punk. Miz has no business in the Main Event of ANY brand. They should have chosen Thorn or Burke here for the third spot. I think Morrison will get the vote here.

Its nice to actually see a poll though that has an unpredictable outcome, unlike most of the polls they ever have up for this event. WHO WOULD YOU RATHER SEE? HULK HOGAN? DOINK THE CLOWN? OR KAMALA?! VOTE NOW!

A bit of news that made me smile... Credit:The Wrestling Observer

"TVN and DISH network have both stated that Respect is Earned had higher buyrates than any TNA ppv this year."

And TNA is the second biggest promotion in the States? ROH! ROH! ROH!

And some more news that made me happy... IN THE PANTS!!!

Former WWE diva Shelly Martinez (best known as Ariel in ECW) will be starting TNA this Sunday at Bound For Glory.

In a rather interesting note, Martinez will be shooting a porn movie in Los Angeles this week though Platinum Jewel. This company is owned by Jewel De'Nyle. De'Nyle has her own connections to pro wrestling as she managed Jamie Dundee on a show recently in Elk Grove, IL.

And last but definitely not least, TNA has signed yet another for WWE wrestler.

It has been reported that former WWE Superstar, Cup of Coffee, has come to terms on a 4-year deal with TNA Wrestling. Cup of Coffee was released from WWE back in 2006 after a backstage altercation with long-time WWE veteran, Table.

Cup of Coffee will be reportedly making upwards of seven figures, making him one of the highest paid TNA stars ever. Due to copyright infringement, however, Cup of Coffee will likely be going under a different name. Cup of Coffee has recently appeared on a number of talk shows and wrestling radio shows and has been using the name Cup of Tea James, so this will likely be the name he is known as in TNA. There is no set date, but he is scheduled to make his appearance in the Impact Zone sometime in the next few weeks.

One of the above statements is not true... Guess which one it is?

If you're a fan of CM Punk, then vote for The Miz!

If Punk goes against Morrison, he'll probably drop the title, but if its Punk vs The Miz there's a good chance there won't be a title switch.

I know I said earlier I was voting for Morrison, but I don't want Punk to drop the belt so soon. Vote for THE MIZ! A vote for Miz is a vote for Punk!

HOO-RAH!

I'd vote for Miz just so we got some match variety. That and I think Miz has made leaps and bounds in his match quality. Some of you may disagree but I think Miz is a great character, one I actually want to see in the ring.
