In the past week in the ever changing world of professional wrestling/sports entertainment fans saw TNA President Dixie Carter vacate TNA's World Heavyweight Championship. WWE celebrated there crowning of a new WWE Champion in Randy Orton at 'Hell in a Cell' but that celebration was interrupted by the "fired" Big Show.
Following the announcement via YouTube on Tuesday that TNA President Dixie Carter was stripping AJ Styles of the TNA World title came her proclamation of a tournament with eight men involved over the next few weeks on Impact to determine a new champion. The first match will be this Thursday as the X-Division Champion Chris Sabin will face-off with Jeff Hardy in "Full Metal Mayhem." Also Bobby Roode will meet his former "Beer Money" tag partner James Storm in a first round match. Kurt Angle is scheduled to compete with Austin Aries and rounding out the first round matches, Main Event Mafia members Samoa Joe and Magnus will square off with each other.
In WWE the honeymoon was over quickly on Monday Night Raw as Randy Orton and "The Authority" celebrated Orton becoming WWE Champion yet again, the celebration was interrupted by the Big Show who knocked out Orton and further threatened to cost the WWE millions of dollars with his pending lawsuit. That lead Triple H during his weekly sit down interview with the voice of WWE, Michael Cole, to make a dramatic decision to ban the Big Show for life from the WWE. How that plays out this coming Monday on Raw will be interesting to see for the WWE Universe.
We also read the report that Hulk Hogan had verbally agreed to a return to WWE as we posted in our article here. What this will mean for WWE creative as they map out there plans heading into 'WrestleMania' 30 next year remains to be seen until the legends deal is finalized. Hopefully for many fans it will fuel the speculation of a final match occurring at the grandest stage of all.
