Indeed he is. Hard to believe that last year, he became one of the best heels around, as well as a decent singles competitor, especially after being mostly a tag team wrestler for 13 years.

Also, Velvet Sky.

Ahh yes, I forgot to mention she was back. I bet Tazz is ecstatic that the pigeons have returned. ;)

wonder if that's why they are attacking him, could be a further story to turn Daniel heel again.

I haven't watched it yet; won't be able to for a few hours, at least. Managed to avoid the spoilers so far though.

As seen earlier this week, WWE posted a video on YouTube looking back at Colt Cabana's time in WWE as Scotty Goldman. This has caused a lot of speculation online about Colt returning to the company.

Word going around is that the video was likely added as part of a potential feature on Jewish Superstars that was pitched for the Hanukkah season. WWE's website published a feature on most memorable Jewish stars earlier this weekend and Goldman was on the list. Unless it's being kept a secret, PWInsider reports that there are no talks between Cabana and WWE at this time.

Speaking of Randall, looks like he got injured at the Tribute to the Troops taping.

F4WOnline.com is reporting via Wrestling Inc. about who the WWE has pegged as the next wave of main-event stars:

We noted on Tuesday that WWE officials that Wade Barrett and Dolph Ziggler are now ready for the "big time" main event booking, Ziggler more than Barrett. Regarding current United States Champion Antonio Cesaro, the feeling is that it will take a long time to really get him over but when he is over all the way, it's going to be very strong. Their mindset is that Cesaro can win some and lose some along the way to the top and it won't hurt him in the long run.

Watching TNA Final Resolution now.

This post will cover the entire PPV, so, obviously, spoilers. Don't read any further if you don't want to know the results...



OK, first off, a promo between James Storm and Frankie Kazarian (with the crowd chanting "Where's your boyfriend?" to Kaz when he came out), which led to an impromptu match. James Storm gets the win with the Last Call. Pretty solid match. ***1/2

Next up, Kenny King vs. Rob Van Dam for the X Division championship. RVD picks up the win with a leg-scissors rollup. Much better! Kenny King put on a hell of a show there; I'll actually start paying attention to him now. ****

Now it's Joey Ryan & Matt Morgan vs. Dos Stereotypicos (better known as the team of Hernandez & Chavo Guerrero Von Erich Jr.) for the Tag Team titles. Hernandez & Chavo win by DQ after Matt Morgan pulls the ref out of the ring to stop him making the 3-count after Chavo delivered the Frog Splash to Joey Ryan (although the ref botched by inadvertently striking his hand down before starting the count). Morgan rams Chavo into the ring post after the match, and Hernandez takes him out with SuperMex. Meh, it was an alright match; worst of the three so far though. ***

Bully Ray vs. Austin Aries next. Two of TNA's current top overall stars duking it out. Near the end of the match, Bully gets busted open on the ring steps, Brooke Hogan comes out, Austin drags her into the ring (bringing her top down in the process), Bully attacks him, and then Hulk comes out to take Brooke away (still topless, BTW). While the ref and Bully are focused on Hulk & Brooke, Austin sneaks in, low blows Bully, and rolls him up for the 3-count. Well I hoped it'd be good, and it certainly was. Shame about the finish though. I don't like A-double being portrayed as the cowardly heel, especially after it was an instant switch from being a take-on-all-comers fan favourite (like CM Punk is currently portrayed over in Double Double E). ****

Knockouts title match up next. Tara (sadly, still with that nobody from Big Brother US) defending against Mickie James (who seemingly didn't double-check her outfit was straight before she came
out). Mickie gets distracted by kicking Jessie in the head, Tara capitalises by hitting the Widow's Peak to score the 1-2-3 and retain the title. The sooner Jessie is gone, the better. **


8-man tag match next. Aces & Eights (Devon, DOC & two currently masked unknown guys) vs. Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, Garrett Bischoff & Wes Brisco. Pretty hectic match with Angle scoring the pinfall for his team with the Angle Slam. I didn't really see the point of this match when the two other A&E members never got unmasked. T'was alright though. ***

And now the match I've been most looking forward to: AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels "one last time". AJ gets busted open near his left eye halfway through the match after a headbut. AJ hits the Styles Clash, but Daniels kicks out. He than attempts to finish it with a Styles Clash from the second rope, but Daniels counters it into a hurricanrana, and then amazingly finishes AJ off with his own finisher. What a match. What a finish. If that really was the last time AJ and Daniels ever face each other, then it was an epic end to one of TNA's greatest feuds. ****1/2

Main event time. Jeff Hardy (coming to the ring with a weird alien-type mask on) defending the World title against Bobby Rooooo (yep, JB's gone back to leaving out the last two letters in his surname). Throughout the match, there was a lot of "Let's go Hardy! Hardy sucks!" chants; he's definitely TNA's John Cena, only there's a legitimate reason for not liking Jeff Hardy. Jeff takes a nasty-looking bump onto the guardrail and into the fans. Definitely worthy of the "Holy sh*t!" chants there. He recovers, and eventually hits the Swanton, but he was in too much pain to pin Roode. Roode then recovers first and hits a spear, Hardy kicks out. Then Aces & Eights show up at ringside. Roode calls them to call in, then turns around into a Twist of Fate from Hardy and gets the win to retain the title. Some good spots in this match, but let's be honest, it had no chance of topping the previous match. ***1/2

Immediately after the bell, A&E take out Jeff Hardy. Then Bobby Roode becomes pi**ed off, saying they were supposed to win him the title. A&E have enough, go after Roode, and DOC chokeslams him to end the PPV.



So, episode, what was that about it being an abortion? T'was a fairly good PPV with two top-notch matches.
