TNA puts Gut Check on hold due to voting issues:
TNA Wrestling claim to have been forced to put Gut Check voting on hold due to the ease of manipulating their online platform. Here is the press release…
In January, we launched the Gut Check Challenge as an online competition to give many independent wrestling stars a chance to showcase their talents and potentially earn a spot on the IMPACT WRESTLING roster.
However, due to a number of issues with the voting – and in fairness to all the competitors – we have decided to suspend the Gut Check Challenge.
We will be re-launching the contest in the near future with a new voting system that will eliminate the voting issues. Stay tuned to our website for updates – and thank you for your continued support of TNA and IMPACT WRESTLING!
WWE cuts sex from famous 1999 commercial:
WWE.com has been plugging the company’s famous 1999 Super Bowl commercial “WWF Attitude, Get It?”, filmed from WWE HQ. However the version fans can watch is not the original. They have edited out a scene where then Diva Sable walks past a couple of office workers having sex and proclaims “we never use Sex to enhance our image”.
Obviously even looking back at the past WWE are trying to stay PG.
Here is the original unedited version:
Sable is the wife of current WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar.

February 06, 2013, WWE Main Event results:
Here are the results from this week’s episode of WWE Main Event on Ion…
Sheamus def. Cody Rhodes:
Before the match got underway, an irate Cody Rhodes immediately took issue with the fact that the six Superstars in the Elimination Chamber Match — all vying for a World Heavyweight Title opportunity — have won and lost the title while he has waited six years for a championship opportunity. Alas, Rhodes is not scheduled to participate in the contest. After grabbing a chair and sitting in the center of the ring, he claimed he would not leave until SmackDown General Manager Booker T granted him a spot in the Elimination Chamber Match.
Although Michael Cole informed the son of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes that Booker T was not at Main Event, Rhodes demanded someone contact him. But The Celtic Warrior was tired of listening to his opponent’s rant and made his way to the ring, still amped from his confrontation with The Shield on Raw and ready for a fight. Before the action officially got underway, Sheamus taunted Rhodes before their heated verbal exchange turned physical.
…Following an impressive reversal of Rhodes’ signature Cross Rhodes maneuver, The Celtic Warrior successfully executed the Irish Curse backbreaker. As the WWE Universe rose to their feet, Sheamus pounded his chest and waited as his opponent staggered to his feet before delivering a crushing Brogue Kick for the win.
Daniel Bryan def. Damien Sandow:
Sandow certainly did a lot of talking before the match, but as soon as the official called for the bell, Bryan took control, channeling his anger and focusing it on his opponent. Still denying any wrongdoing when he distracted his tag team partner Kane on Raw, Bryan kept the self-proclaimed “Intellectual Savior of the Masses” reeling.
Though Sandow managed to execute some offense, Bryan was firmly in control. That was, until Kane made his way to ringside. Bryan screamed at The Big Red Monster to leave, Kane responded by setting off his trademark flames in the ring. With his opponent distracted, Sandow took advantage and executed his Terminus neckbreaker to secure the victory.
Naomi & Cameron def. Tamina & Aksana:
In the locker room area, Tamina Snuka and Aksana approached Brodus Clay, trying to convince The Funkasaurus to fire Naomi & Cameron and hire them. As Clay denied the advances of Tamina and Aksana, The Funkadactyls took issue with their fellow Divas and an impromptu match was made.
Although Cameron controlled the contest early on, Tamina & Aksana showed good chemistry, keeping The Funkadactyl on the defensive and preventing her from tagging in Naomi. Cameron’s quickness, though, eventually allowed her to take down Aksana and make the tag, enabling an electric Naomi to wow the WWE Universe with blazing speed and amazing agility! Once Naomi was in the contest, Tamina and Aksana didn’t stand a chance as The Funkadactyl executed a spinning heel kick for the victory. WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn may want to take notice of what Naomi is capable of when she swaps her dancing shoes for wrestling boots.
