Hulk Hogan vs. Sting for control of TNA

By THE Wrestling Times -  site note WWE Smackdown is playing in the player at the top of the site

Hulk Hogan vs. Sting in a "fight, not a wrestling match" at Bound for Glory next Sunday will be for storyline control of TNA. As revealed at the end of Thursday's Impact Wrestling episode, if Sting wins, Hogan hands over control of TNA to Sting and Dixie Carter.

In official PPV advertising, TNA is listing Hogan-Sting as a No DQ match, which has not been announced on TV yet.

Also during the Impact broadcast, TNA announced A.J. Styles vs. Daniels in an I Quit match at the BFG PPV. Bully Ray vs. Mr. Anderson was also given a stipulation of a Falls Count Anywhere Philadelphia Street Fight.

Trailer for the upcoming Steve Austin 4-disc DVD

By THE Wrestling Times -  WWE has released the trailer for the upcoming Steve Austin DVD, a four-disc set which will be the last Austin DVD produced by WWE. 

Austin said a few months ago that this would be the "be all, end all" in the collection and he served as a producer, choosing the segment and matches. 

In the trailer, Austin is described as "the most popular Superstar of all time," a statement which is really hard to go against. 

You can see the trailer below.

Explosive Pro Wrestling RE-AWAKENING X

By TheWrestlingTimes.com 
epwperth.com - On November 4th 2001, locally produced professional wrestling returned to Western Australia for the first time in over a decade.

16 renegades took part in a one day tournament to decide the very first winner of the Explosive Coastal Wrestling Invitational Tournament. That show laid the foundation for what would become Explosive Professional Wrestling, a group that would become the benchmark for professional wrestling in this country.

On November 12th 2011, we will celebrate ten years of Explosive Pro Wrestling with RE-AWAKENING X.

The Vasto Club in Balcatta will play host to the biggest event in our ten year history and it is already shaping up as a HUGE show.

The main event will see CHAMPION versus CAREER as the EPW Champion, the ‘Golden Greek’ Marcius Pitt, go head to head with ‘Shotgun’ Tyler Jacobs. This is a high stakes match up as Jacobs career hangs in the balance.

For the third time in RE-AWAKENING history, the EPW tag team titles will go on …

Indy News - Chikara presents “Klunk in Love”

By THE Wrestling Times -  Chikara presents “Klunk in Love” Saturday, October 8, 2011 at the Kingsport Civic Auditorium in Kingsport, TN. Belltime is 7 pm. 
Chikara continues its Southern expedition by making its debut in Tennessee: Smoky Mountain country. The 12 Large Summit is wrapping up, or could be essentially wrapped up based on the events the night before. Tennessee will also see the international influence of Eagles, McKay, Harada, Kotoge, and Kana.

12 Large Summit Block B: Jigsaw (2 pts, e) vs. Ultramantis Black (2 pts)

12 Large Summit Block A: Hallowicked (4 pts) vs. Ophidian (0 pts, e)

Both of these matches could have increased intrigue or decreased importance based on the matches in North Carolina. Heading into the weekend, Ultramantis Black and Hallowicked are holding on to hope to advance to the finals from their respective blocks and become the first Chikara Grand Champion. Jigsaw and Ophidian can both become a spoiler for their opponent. But if Hallowicked or Ultramantis Bl…

WWE Superstars Review for 10/06/11

By THE Wrestling Times -  MATCH 1: ALEX RILEY DEF JTG
 Remember when Alex Riley was on pay per view beating The Miz? Seems like that was ages ago but now being on Superstars more he does not need to get caught up in the shuffle of all the other top faces. As for JTG he should have been wished well in his future endeavors a long time ago as he has just been a jobber and this match was the same. I was a bit surprised when JTG kicked out of Riley’s Elevated DDT finisher but fell victim to the A-Bomb. I see big things for Alex Riley as he is the future of the WWE.  Up next they show the ending to Hell In A Cell when Miz and Truth destroyed everyone from the wrestlers to the referees and cameramen.  I will talk more about this on my YouTube Show. MATCH 2: MICHAEL McGILLICUTTY DEF PERCY WATSON  If you guys watch NXT you know that both of these guys were rookies on the show. At least now Percy isn’t wearing those dumb glasses anymore. It is nice to see McGillicutty on his own so he can showcase h…

Robert Roode Talks About The Journey To Bound for Glory

By THE Wrestling Times -  Leading up to TNA's Bound for Glory PPV next Sunday, Beer Money's Robert Roode shared his thoughts on the progression of his career and stepping out as a singles wrestler in an interview with syndicated columnist Alex Marvez. ( link - scrippsnews.com/node/64613 )

"It's something really special to know the company has faith in you. I've been here for a long time. I've waited for this opportunity. I like to think I've earned a lot of respect from not just the (Impact) office but (the wrestlers) as well. I've stayed loyal to this company and believed in it when a lot of people didn't. I've stayed through the good and bad times. I think I've proven myself, and James has as well," Roode said.

While Roode says he is excited about where this singles move will take him, the decision didn't come without some hesitation on his part.

"It was a concern to us, but at the end of the day we started thinking about great…

Pre-Show

TNA's pre-show started with Jeremy Borash and Christy Hemme running down the PPV line-up inside the Liacouras Center at Temple University. After the initial line-up rundown, JB went to a video package hyping Robert Roode's TNA World Title quest.

Backstage: JB brought in Mr. Anderson for a promo. Anderson said he learned how to fight dealing with people like Bully Ray growing up. He said the best way to shut up a bully is punch him in the mouth. Anderson tried to build up a babyface reaction for later on by endorsing Philadelphia.

In-ring: Mike Tenay and Taz hyped the pre-show match for the TNA Tag Titles. Out first was Ink, Inc. to challenge for the Tag Titles. Neal brought an American flag with him to the ring before Mexican America came out in possession of a Mexican flag.
