As the month of August comes to a close and the unofficial end of Summer with Labor Day weekend upon us, there are winds of change in the world of pro wrestling/sports entertainment. TNA may be planning for new champions to emerge soon while in WWE the change has already started to show in a new attitude for several superstars.

TNA presented it's weekly Impact broadcast this past Wednesday with more results being revealed from taped matches in NYC earlier this month. Team 3D emerged victorious in the main event triple threat tag-team match between themselves the Hardy Boyz and TNA World Tag-Team Champions The Wolves. Next week they get to name the stipulation for the next match in the series, and with one more victory become the new champions. Also it was decided that on next week's broadcast Bobby Roode and Eric Young would battle it out to decide who is the rightful number one contender to Bobby Lashley and the TNA World Championship. Taryn Terrell and Madison Rayne had a match to determine the number one contender to Gail Kim and the TNA Women's Knockout Championship. Taryn took the match and we will finally see the third and deciding match between these two.

On Monday Night Raw WWE changed course some introducing a possible feud between Seth Rollins and his other former Shield-mate Roman Reigns, since Dean Ambrose will still "absent" after his being put through concrete blocks the prior week. We also saw a change in attitude as Goldust and Stardust turned on The Usos after a WWE Tag-Team title match that ended due to an injury to one of the brothers. A match between Cesaro and Rob Van Dam determined a number one contender to Sheamus and the United States Championship. Cesaro reversed his recent losses and will meet Sheamus at 'Night of Champions' for the gold. The biggest change of the past week had to be the uptick in attitude and determination from John Cena after his beat down at the hands of Brock Lesnar at 'SummerSlam.' Cena took the fight to another recent opponent Bray Wyatt and soundly beat him before his Wyatt Family brethren interfered and the main event became a six-man tag match adding the Big Show and Mark Henry on Cena's side as they came down to make the save. Cena still showed an edgier side that dominated the Wyatts in his team's victory. It remains to be seen if he can do that against Lesnar in there re-match at 'Night of Champions.'

Next month brings about the start of football season in the United States along with the return of children to school and pro wrestling will be fighting for the attention of it's viewers as always. Hopefully current storylines in both major federations will keep fans interest levels high and glued in to see what happens next.
