Here we are chasing the last week of February with a brief respite here in the Northeast from the harsh Winter we've had, and ready to turn to March and better weather ahead. In the world of pro wrestling/sports entertainment, things are ever turning as well with TNA still overseas and WWE ready to launch there WWE Network.
Now with 'Elimination Chamber' in WWE's rear view mirror the road to 'WrestleMania' XXX is completely clear and the WWE Universe is ready for what matches are to come and the debut of the WWE Network today. The network launch was moved up to 9:00 am from post Monday Night Raw to alleviate the likely overload of network traffic for all fans and members of the WWE Universe looking to stream what ever programming they chose. For those who may have missed last night's 'Elimination Chamber' pay-per-view, it should be a part of the On Demand section of the WWE Network. Tonight's Raw will be very special as it is expected the Undertaker will return and we should hear from the new host of 'WrestleMania' XXX, Hulk Hogan, in his first time back in WWE in years.
As TNA Wrestling continued it's overseas tour, now in England, there World Heavyweight Champion, and U.K. native Magnus defended his title against Gunner on last Thursday's Impact event. The match did not end with a "clean" victory for Magnus as he pinned Gunner after Gunner's tag-team partner James Storm finally revealed his true nature and super-kicked Gunner to allow Magnus to gain the win. The American Wolves (Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards) got a big victory over Bad Influence (Daniels and Kazarian) as well on last Thursday's Impact broadcast, plus despite that Bobby Roode "quit" TNA, Dixie Carter offered him the captaincy of her team versus MVP's team at 'Lockdown' next month where the winner team takes total control of TNA. Those team captains will go at it on this week's edition as Roode battles MVP himself.
Well that's all the major news out of the big promotions in the world of pro wrestling this past week. It's a good bet many fans will be tuning into the WWE Network to see all the new programming plus go back and relive past pay-per-views, episodes of Raw and Smackdown and more.
