Well this past week in the ever evolving world of pro wrestling/sports entertainment definitely got ratcheted up several notches as WWE gave us a shocking heel turn and TNA set-up more matches towards 'Slammiversary' in less than two weeks. We should also make note that last weekend a new NWA World Champion was crowned as Rob Conway regained the gold from Satoshi Kojima.
TNA wrestling had there weekly Impact broadcast Thursday night with more changes afoot as they head towards 'Slammiversary' in less than two weeks. Originally in a contract versus contract match between Austin Aries and Samoa Joe where the loser would have there TNA contract terminated, Eric Young and Bully Ray interrupted. They took out referee Brian Hebner and the match ended but MVP and his associates came out, so eventually a "First Blood" eight man tag match was made for the main event between Young, Bully, Aries and Joe versus MVP, Bobby Lashley, Kenny King and ECIII. Ethan Carter was the first to bleed at the hands of Bully Ray giving his team the victory. Magnus came out during his "friend" Bram's match with Willow, and talked Bram out of using the small pry bar on Willow, but then went on to attack Willow with it himself. So a match between Magnus and Willow will be at the upcoming pay-per-view. The budding feud between James Storm and Mr. Anderson continued along with Anderson imitating Storm drinking in the ring. Eventually the two would battle and they will meet at 'Slammiversary' as well. Lastly in an odd booking idea TNA made there current World Tag-Team Champions The Wolves, Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards battle each other.
In WWE The Authorities' Stephanie McMahon made a main event for there next special event 'Money in the Bank' on June 29th. Daniel Bryan must defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Kane in a stretcher match, or if he cannot compete then the winner of the 'Money in the Bank' contract match will be declared the new WWE World Champion. Hopefully Bryan will be healed up enough after his neck surgery to compete otherwise the vacated title will go to one of the eight men competing for the 'Money in the Bank' contract. Of course the biggest news out of WWE was set-up by Batista "quitting" WWE and Evolution at the opening of Monday Night Raw, but at the end of the night Randy Orton was to battle Roman Reigns. Seth Rollins went out of the ring to grab two steel chairs, he would then use one on Reigns to flatten him while Dean Ambrose looked on shocked, then Rollins wore him out with chair shots of his own. Triple H's "plan B" had been revealed as Rollins turned on his Shield teammates. Now we wait to see how this feud between these two factions plays out for 'Money in the Bank.'
That sums up most of the big storylines going in the world of sports entertainment for TNA and WWE this past week. The next two pay-per-view events should give all of us wrestling fans solid action from top to bottom of each card based upon how things are going for both companies.
