The past week in the world of professional wrestling/sports entertainment saw the WWE hold-up it's WWE Championship which is very rare in there history. TNA seems likely to finally be moving in a new direction creatively after President Dixie Carter decided to go off "heel-like" on AJ Styles at the end of this week's Impact. By the way for those who don't already know who the new ROH World Champion is, there be spoilers ahead.
ROH held there annual 'Death Before Dishonor' show in Philadelphia on Friday night and the final four competitors, Adam Cole, Tommaso Ciampa, Kevin Steen and Michael Elgin, squared off to determine the new ROH World Champion. Well we can tell you that Adam Cole emerged victorious and has become the new World Champion of Ring of Honor! Congrats to Adam, who is also the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) World Champion as well.
WWE had to move there storylines quickly towards there next pay-per-view 'BattleGround' as it occurs on Sunday October 6th. Triple H vacated the WWE Championship after the fast count on Sunday at 'Night of Champions' by referee Scott Armstrong, who was fired by them on Monday. Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan will face-off in the main event at 'BattleGround' for the vacant WWE Championship.
Now as you can see from the video at first it seemed TNA President Dixie Carter was really apologizing to AJ Styles for how he was treated since it seemed if Styles does win the TNA World Championship at 'Bound for Glory' he might pull a "CM Punk" and walk-off with it (on to WWE TV…). Then she went off on AJ calling him the "Marginal One" and that she created his "Phenomenal One" persona etc. It seems to be signaling a new creative direction for TNA that could be a breath of fresh air (hopefully.)
On a final note we read of the passing of Angelo Savoldi at 99 years old on September 20th. He was a former three time NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion. Along with his sons he founded International Championship Wrestling (ICW) in 1984 which featured a few wrestlers who would later become superstars in ECW, including Tazz. Savoldi was apparently the oldest living former pro wrestler. We here at WorldWrestling101 offer our condolences to his family.
