Wrestling Review Weekly: Second Edition, Number Three

We're back this week with another edition of the weekly wrap-up of all things in the two major wrestling promotions here in the United States. TNA got some good news and bad news within the same week, while WWE came off what many feel was a lackluster 'SummerSlam' last Sunday night.

TNA wrestling got some good news this past week after negotiations between themselves and SpikeTV netted them a continuation of there contract through the end of 2014 versus it's original expiration at the end of September. This certainly buys them more time to find a permanent home either staying on SpikeTV or elsewhere. Unfortunately though since all of there Impact broadcasts are already "in the can" between now and then it's hard to say how things will play out for Bully Ray, who left TNA since his contract expired, and Davey Richards, one half of the TNA World Tag-Team Champions, who broke a leg at a house show recently. The series of matches between The Wolves, Team 3D and the Hardy Boyz starts this Wednesday with the winner of the first match naming the stipulation for the next match, and the first team to collect two victories becoming the TNA World Tag-Team Champions! Also a new number one contender to TNA World Champion Lashley was to be decided within the six sides of steel, but both Bobby Roode and Eric Young escaped on opposite sides simultaneously leaving Kurt Angle to decide if either or both will get that upcoming title shot. Lastly Gail Kim retained her TNA Women's Knockout Championship in a brutal "last knockout standing" match versus Angelina Love on Wednesday night's Impact broadcast. May be Taryn Terrell and Gail Kim can finally now have that third and deciding match between them for the title.
