WWE/TNA/ROH August Wrestling Thread: SummerSlam/ Hardcore Justice

WWE returns to ppv with Summer Slam live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 14th. As of this moment, the only official match announced is Christian defending his World Heavyweight Championship in a No Holds Barred match against Randy Orton. Almost certain to be announced very soon will be a unification match between John Cena and the recently returned CM Punk.
----------------------




TNA kicks off August with their Hardcore Justice event on Sunday, August 7th. The announced card at this point in time is as follows...

TNA World Heavyweight Championship
"The Icon" Sting(c) vs. "The Olympic Gold Medalist" Kurt Angle

3 Way Match for the TNA X-Division Championship
Brian Kendrick(c) vs. Austin Aries vs. Alex Shelley

TNA World Tag Team Championships
Beer Money(c)("Cowboy" James Storm & Bobby Roode) vs.
Mexican America("SuperMex" Hernandez & Anarquia)

TNA Knockouts Championship
Mickie James(c) vs. Winter w/Angelina Love

6 Man Tag Team Match
Immortal(Gunner, "The Monster" Abyss & "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner) vs.
Fortune("The Phenomenal" A.J. Styles, Kazarian & "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels)

Bound For Glory Series Match - #1 vs. #2
Crimson vs. "The Whole F'n Show" Rob Van Dam

Bound For Glory Series Match
"The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero vs. Devon
-----------------------------------
On paper, this seems to be a solid line-up. That X-Division match, in particular, interest me quite a bit.

Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins is opening his own independent wrestling promotion. Corgan has been a long-time fan of professional wrestling and dabbled in wrestling during a feud with Lou E. Dangerously in ECW. He is being billed as the creative director for the promotion, dubbed Resistance Pro and will make an official announcement at Wizard World Chicago in mid-August regarding plans for the promotion
--------------------------------

Be interesting to see if anything comes of this or if its just another talked about thing that never quite comes to fruition.

I'm aware of what day it is, thanks. I notified a mod for a title change about two minutes after the post went up. Obviously, it hasn't happened yet.

found this bizarre note on 411mania.com

- Over the weekend, John Cena posted a nude photo of himself on Twitter. In the photo, his penis was covered, and he stated that the photo was a gift for those who had been asking for it. A few hours later, the photo was deleted and there has been no mention of it since. Many people were surprised that Cena would do something like this, due to the fact that he is a big supporter of the company's attempts to market themselves to such a young demographic.

Yea, I saw it when he first put it up two nights ago. It's not as bad as any of the pictures Orton has taken of himself backstage when he was younger. Cena took it down I believe. Wonder if he was ordered to or if he just realized what he was doing a little too late.

They're still around?

I can't help but wonder if those photos were done so Punk will have something with which to ridicule Cena tonight.

Re: WWE/TNA/ROH August Wrestling Thread: SummerSlam/ Hardcore Justice

Really looking forward to RAW again.

Anyone ever been to (or heard of?) Freedom Pro Wrestling? They're doing their big sumer show here featuring:

Kevin Nash v. Carlito for the first time ever
Al Snow v. C.J. O'Doyle
New Age Outlaws v. The Prime Time Players
Also featuring... TNA Impact Wrestling World TV Champion - Eric Young, the monster known as AHTU, The Lumberjack, Butchie Davis, Jake Classic, a Cruiserweight gauntlet and much more!!!

I've never heard of these guys except for those that have been in major feds. It's only 20 bucks for a floor seat so I'll most likely go, just wondering if there are any guys in particular I should be looking for.

I can't wait for the Art of Wrestling podcast after the Gathering of the Juggalos when Colt Cabana shares his stories from the weekend. Last year he gave his account of the Tila Tequila mess.

Holy cow! This is great!

(Except for Hunter's "skinny fat ass" flub.)

Punk may not be a dynamic stick man like Flair or the Rock, but his cerebral spots, while nowhere near as dark, are so eloquent they harken back to Mick Foley interviews. I'm LOVING Punk's work.

Great promo, just when they were talking about ego's Punk would have brought up Mr. King of Kings....
