*** WWE News and Rumors ***
- 15 Time WWE Champion, John Cena will be appearing on NBC's Today Show on Monday morning to promote RAW in Brooklyn, New York.
- As you recall, WWE used Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble on RAW this past week. Rumor is they may become The Authority's official lackeys every week now.
- This week on WWE.com they've officially given Adam Rose's Bunny a profile and now list him as a wrestler. (Are you freakin' kidding me?!?!?! The WWE release talent that they don't want to push, cause they think they won't be worth the effort, BUT give a guy in a bunny suit a roster spot! Unbelievable!!!)
- All you fan boys that drooled over the nude picture of A.J. Lee that was released online, can now weep in rejecting. Mrs. CM Punk officially commented on Twitter that the picture was actually a picture of porn star Lilly Evans. So carry on fan boys before CM Punk blocks you on Twitter.
- Rumor going around was that WWE was seriously thinking about a Nikki vs Brie Bella Hell In A Cell Match......Do you hear that? That's the sound of Vince McMahon laughing at all of us, cause we'd be forced to deal with it. As of now the idea has been scrapped.
- NXT trainer, Nick Dinsmore, has officially been released from WWE. Dinsmore portrayed Eric Bishoff's nephew, Eugene, during his run in the WWE.
*** TNA News and Rumors ***
- TNA contract news: Devon of Team 3D's contract will expire at Bound For Glory. Many think he will be done with TNA just like Bully Ray will officially be done with TNA at Bound For Glory.
- Former TNA wrestler, Jesse Sorensen, announced on his Twitter page that he is officially retiring from pro wrestling. Sorensen says it's for personal reasons.
- Who's excited about former WWE announcer, Josh Mathews, now having an announcer job with TNA? Anyone? Anyone? Well its true, Mathews has been tweeting it on Twitter, but sources are saying he won't officially start until the beginning of the new year. If there is a beginning of the new year for TNA.
- Other TNA injuries: Gail Kim suffered a legit shoulder separation during her match with Havok. Kim will still be on Impact in upcoming weeks due to shows being taped in advance. Tommy Dreamer took a bad bump in one of his up coming taped TNA matches and is currently having back and hip issues. Dreamer says it won't stop him from competing at Bound For Glory.
- More matches were announced this week for TNA's Bound For Glory Pay Per View. The following is the card so far:
** The Great Muta and Yoshihiro Tajiri vs James Storm and The Great Senada
** Team 3D's TNA Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
** "Hardcore Match": Tommy Dreamer and Abyss vs. Team 3D
** "TNA X-Division Championship": Samoa Joe vs. Low Ki vs. Kaz Hayashi
** MVP vs. Kazma Sakamoto
** Manik vs. Minoru Tanaka
** Velvet Sky vs. Havok
*** GFW News and Rumors ***
- We have the first of hopefully many more updates to come on Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling promotion. It has been confirmed that GFW will have their debut Pay Per View set for January 4th, 2015. Sources have stated that it'll take place in the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan. GFW will be working with New Japan Pro Wrestling in the event but the pay per view will be considered a Global Force Wrestling product.
- As for GFW landing a network deal....still a no go. GFW has been pitching their product to the same channels that TNA has been talking to. Unfortunately none of those networks want to take a chance on an upstart company like GFW.
And that's this week's Weekend 3 Count. Join me every Sunday afternoon for more WWE, TNA and GFW news and rumors around the wrestling world.
