WWE has announced that Darren Young has been suspended for 30 days due to a violation of the company's Wellness Policy.

The following statement was posted on the WWE website on Thursday:

"In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Fred Rosser (Darren Young) for 30 days effective Wednesday, Oct. 5, for his first violation of the company’s policy."

----------------
Vince Russo has been removed from his post as the head of TNA's creative team, according to a report by ProWrestling.NET.

Russo has been replaced by Bruce Prichard, who is also in charge of TNA's talent relations.

Russo is not entirely gone, as he'll still be one of the senior writers for the show along with writer Matt Conway, but Bruce Prichard will now handle the overall direction of the shows and has the final say on the scripts.

This major change to TNA's creative structure has been in the works for several months and became official within the past week or so.

There are said to be mixed feelings in the TNA locker room regarding Bruce Prichard getting so much power in TNA so early into his run with the company - but at the same time, Russo's demotion is sure to make many people happy.

Gotta say they're working kind of well into a storyline to end the brand split (if as earlier rumoured that's the end goal) but I do find it silly all the Smackdown wrestlers turned up saying it was unsafe... Just to then essentially invite the lot from the other side to join in the fun and games on Smackdown. Guess it's better than the random attacks...

Excellent Britannia Wrestling Promotions show on Friday night. El Generico's match was amazing.

I'll be putting up photos on FB as usual within a day or so but not sure when the videos will be up.

Met El Generico in the afternoon and as mk said he's a really nice guy. I didn't succumb to buying a t-shirt but did get a picture of him with me after the show. :lol:

For those of you who may be interested and unfortunately couldn't make the show, I'll post a link to the videos when they are available. :)

Yeah, he's only made a few appearences for WWF/E in 1997. The right spelling is 'Brakkus', that should help you find him on Google :)

I actually enjoyed most of this years Hell In A Cell, it started off badly (Sheamus vs Christian wasn't that great, Sin Cara vs Evil Sin Cara was a 'worst match of the year' candidate) but then improved a lot...good tag match, not bad random IC match, good World Heavyweight match with Mark Henry getting a clean win, and a superb bit of storytelling in the WWE Championship match (loved John Cena getting dragged out the Cell and locked outside while the match was still going on :lol: ). Following Raw was OK too, and the vote of no confidence in Triple H and the mass walkout at the end really got me interested.

Makes a change for me to praise WWE, but credit where it's due. I suppose it'll be back to 'same old sh!t' by Vengeance though.

Just watched this week's TNA too...pretty good show....there still making a big deal out of Hogan vs Sting at Bound For Glory :( , but they're also really hyping up the Robert Roode/Angle match and letting Roode showcase his skills....fully expecting that to be a superb match. :D Interesting appearence from Jeff Hardy as well. It's also obvious just how much better the atmosphere is when they tape Impact in a proper arena (this one's in Knoxville, Tennessee), the crowd were good and way more into what was going on than the usual sh!tty Impact Zone crowd are.

So after all that Hogan isn't really retiring, and Bound for Glory is still going ahead, whilst I love seeing the Hulk, I fear for how poor this match will end up being, I also hope it does not take the rub off Roode/Angle match.

I read Hogan has signed a new TNA contract, so would assume that mean Eric B will continue on, perhaps Hogan will Hulk up back to Red & Yellow at BFG and will spend his final year being the good guy helping the younger wrestlers :roll:

To be honest, I'm really looking forward to the Hogan/Sting match...not because it's going to be great (we know it won't) but because the Philadelphia crowd at Bound For Glory are probably going to savage it :lol: :lol:

There's enough other good matches happening at BFG to make up for it, granted a couple of them are ones we've seen a couple of times before but AJ Styles/Christopher Daniels 'I Quit' match should be good, RVD vs Jerry Lynn is (I think) Falls Count Anywhere, Samoa Joe vs Crimson vs Matt Morgan Triple Threat, pretty sure Velvet Sky will be winning the Knockouts belt, heck I've even got faith in Bully Ray and Mr Anderson to put on a good show.

Only match I don't really give much of a toss about is Mexican America vs Ink Inc. (mainly because Mexican America suck donkey balls) but even that might turn out OK.

You never know with TNA.
They can put on matches that sound "Urgh" and they turn out good

Hoping that the Angle vs Rude match dont have another sodding run in ending as its a lame way to end a big match

Only thing I like about Mexican America these days are Sarita and Rosita (they have hot chicks at least), and even that's been ruined by that daft storyline angle in which they've made Sarita wear a mask covering most of her face after being 'injured'. :(

I used to like Hernandez a lot in LAX, as a wrestler he seems to have gotten quite badly worse in a short space of time though. Either that, or Homicide was carrying the matches a lot more than I realised at the time.

Sarita has to wear that mask as half her face is paralyzed or something like that.

Thing is though, she's been competing without it for a bit of time now.

Granted, TNA episodes are taped in advance, maybe she'll start appearing without it on TV again soon (hopefully).
