It's the Weekend 3 Count, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. The W3C, brings you news and rumors going on around the wrestling world. Whether it's WWE, NXT, TNA, GFW, ROH, Lucha Underground or the independent wrestling scene, I'll talk about it.

*** WWE and NXT News ***

- If you missed the WWE Money In The Bank pay per view on Sunday, be sure to check out my Money In The Bank recap edition.

- HERE COMES THE PAIN!: Brock Lesnar made his return this past Monday on RAW. Lesnar will face Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Battleground.

- Sheamus has gone to Twitter and asked the WWE Universe to be his eyes and ears, when it comes time to cash in his money in the bank briefcase. Sheamus is asking fans to tweet him on Twitter with the hash tag #cashinnow when they think he should try to cash in for the world title.

- WWE recently made the RAW commentary change putting Michael Cole, JBL and Byron Saxton on air together. WWE has stated that Saxton may be the replacement at the moment until Booker T. finishes filming Tough Enough and returns.

- More on the Tyson Kidd Injury: A few weeks back, Tyson Kidd was injured at a dark match before RAW, against Samoa Joe. Kidd suffered a spinal cord injury after taking Joe's trademarked Muscle Buster finisher. WWE has stated that it was a fluke accident and Joe didn't do anything carelessly, performing the move. Kidd, who thankfully is still able to walk, is currently looking into rehabbing the spinal cord. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Adam "Edge" Copeland have gotten in contact with Kidd and offered him advice incase he needs surgery. If Kidd chooses surgery it could put him out of action for at least a year.

- A shocking story has begun making the rounds in WWE about Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler has stated that he only has a few months left on his current WWE contract and if not given a decent storyline and a push, he's said he's not resigning. TNA has already jumped on this and is hoping Ziggler will jump ship to TNA. Ziggler is currently in a storyline with Lana and Rusev, where Ziggler is Lana's current love interest and Rusev is the angry ex-boyfriend.

- TNA announced the reason they dropped Kurt Angle vs. Ethan Carter III at Slammiversary for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, was due to spoilers. TNA is currently taping Impact episodes that will air after Slammiversary. Which means the good old internet would have given away whether Angle or Carter was the champion before Slammiversary even takes place, which would have told us who wins at Slammiversary.

- Dixie Carter recently tweeted out on Twitter a picture of the new TNA X-Division Title that will debut soon.

- Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion and current TNA wrestler, Bobby Lashley, had a Bellator fight this past weekend. Lashley defeated Dan Charles by TKO in the second round at Bellator 138. Lashley stands at 13-2 now.

- Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion and current UFC Fighter, CM Punk has been in a Twitter war with Hulk Hogan this week. Punk has been accusing Hogan of not being a real hockey fan, as Hogan was supporting the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup. Punk who has been a life long hockey fan and supporter of the Chicago Blackhawks, stated Tampa should be embarrassed that someone like Hogan would be endorsing them.
