Wrestling Review Weekly: Second Edition, Number 12

This past week in the world of pro wrestling/sports entertainment got a bit more interesting in WWE with questions about loyalty within The Authority. Things also got interesting in TNA with the announcement of the title contests for next week's Impact broadcast. TNA will have all four of their championship up for grabs next Wednesday night.

TNA began their number one contender's tag-team tournament on Impact Wednesday night with the opening four contests. MVP and Kenny King took home a victory over Mr. Anderson and Chris Melendez, and King rolled up the sarge for the pin. The Hardys defeated The BroMans to advance as well. Ethan Carter III and his new hire Tyrus (formerly Brodus Clay) defeated former protege Rockstar Spud and his partner, Eric Young. Samoa Joe and Low Ki, who have been battling over the X-Division Championship, teamed up to get the win over Gunner and Samuel Shaw. However, after the match, Brittany came in to side with Shaw. When Gunner got in her face about it, Shaw attacked from behind with chair shot after chair shot. Brittany seemed to thoroughly enjoy the beat down, so we wonder why TNA is teaming these two up right now. As for the next Impact, originally taped in September, there will be three championship matches plus another contest for the vacated X-Division Championship that Samoa Joe gave up due to injury. Bobby Roode will challenge Bobby Lashley for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and Havok will defend her TNA Women's Knockout Championship against Taryn Terrell. Lastly, The Wolves will defend the TNA World Tag-Team Championship against the team of James Storm and Abyss.

WWE ‘Hell in a Cell’ Special Event Preview, Part Two

By Peter Schifani

On Friday, we previewed the undercard matches for WWE's 'Hell in a Cell', and now we showcase the double main event matches plus the remaining upper card contests. Since Brock Lesnar has the night off and is not defending the WWE World title, hopefully the two cell matches will hold fans interest. In case you missed part one, you may go back to read it here.

Double Main Event

'Hell in a Cell' Match

MitB Contract Holder Seth Rollins versus Dean Ambrose

Peter Schifani:

Finally, Ambrose will get his hands on Rollins without any other members of The Authority getting in there way. That's the hope but we feel that something may happen to make it so Rollins has an advantage that gets him the victory. In the interim, Ambrose better get in all his licks before that occurs.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

With Seth Rollins being the 'Money in the Bank' contract holder and in line for the championship, I am going to pick Dean Ambrose to win this 'Hell in a Cell' match. The two former Shield members will put on a show that should steal the spotlight and be the best of the night.

WWE ‘Hell in a Cell’ Special Event Preview, Part One

October 24th, 2014 at 6:54 PM
By Peter Schifani

It has been more than a month since the last WWE special event, and now it's time for the October special; Sunday night's so-called 'Hell in a Cell.' During this first part of our preview, we look at the under card matches, and tomorrow night we preview the double main event plus the remaining matches.

United States Championship

Sheamus (C) versus The Miz w/ Damien Sandow

Peter Schifani:

Damien Miz-dow got the roll-up victory by pinning Sheamus Monday night on Raw in the six-man tag-team match. The reality is that Miz-dow is not The Miz, and Sheamus will brogue kick his way to the Miz's "money maker" and another victory.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

Damien Sandow is entertaining me even in this stupid role of being The Miz's stunt-double. It is a shame that he won the 'Money in the Bank' event, and then never cashed in. But anyways, back to this match in the present. I expect Sheamus to retain the United States Championship here against The Miz.

WWE Tag-Team Championship

Goldust and Stardust (C) versus Jimmy and Jey (The Usos)
