2/4 TNA results Concord, N.C.: Roode & Angle vs. Hardy & Storm closes tour, Styles vs. Kaz MOTN, Flair promo

Report by By -  Kent Jones,  TheWrestlingTimes.comTAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS , MMA News- Decent crowd at the arena. I would guesstimate at least 500, but it could have been more. For 30 minutes before the show, Don West hyped the crowd with free stuff. Jeremy Borash introduced the show and hyped the crowd more with backstage passes.

(1) Eric Young & ODB beat TV champion Robbie E. & Rob Terry. Fun comedy match to start the show. They had a dance-off and got the ref involved before EY & ODB won.

JB introduced Earl Hebner, who came out like a heel. He got the "You screwed Bret" chants, then ripped off his t-shirt to reveal a referee t-shirt that says "Damn right I did." He put on the Hitman shades and mocked Hart before flipping some people off.

(2) X Division champion Austin Aries beat Zema Ion and Jesse Sorensen in a three-way match to retain the X Division Title. Good action throughout. Aries really carried the match, but the other guys had some good spots…

TNA/WWE News: Sting talks near-WWE jump last year, does he regret not going?, still wants to face Undertaker

Report by By -   Kent Jones,  TheWrestlingTimes.comTAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS , MMA News- While making the media rounds last week promoting TNA Impact from London, Sting revealed he was "very, very close" to jumping to WWE last year. He also said during an interview with CNY KISS FM that he's undecided on whether it was the right decision.

Asked if he regrets not going to WWE, Sting said, "Yes and no. Who wouldn't want to say they did at least one WrestleMania? I'd like to be able to say I did at least one of those, and that would be it.

"I've had great conversations with him (Vince McMahon) over the years and been real close on probably three or four different occasions of going up there. But, there was always a need met or a desire of mine met with WCW and now with TNA, so I stay."

The topic was brought up when Sting stressed that a match with The Undertaker is at the top of his list of remaining dream matches his career.

"I'd have to sa…

UFC 143's Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit - A Round by Round Breakdown of What Actually Happened

Report by By -   Kent Jones,  TheWrestlingTimes.comTAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS , MMA News- Last night's UFC 143 main event between Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz was a very close five-round fight that warranted at least a second look. Condit won a unanimous decision with scores of 48-47, 49-46, and 49-46, but for many Diaz supporters it was an unthinkable result.





Surely the fact that Diaz was walking forward and Condit was running away should have given Diaz the decision, right? Except that's not what happened in the fight. Those equating Condit's performance to Kalib Starnes' infamous bout against Nate Quarry are simply spouting sour grapes and ignoring the reality of what happened in the fight.

I've re-watched the fight twice since last night, and while my live score of 48-47 Condit hasn't changed, a 49-46 result for him is not out of the realm of possibility. That doesn't mean the two judges that scored the fight 49-46 for Condit got it all right, because they…

HART FAMILY MEMBER SHOOTS ON TNA, CALLS SOME TALENT 'BOTTOM RUNG'

Report by By -   Kent Jones,  TheWrestlingTimes.comTAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS , MMA News

- I what can only be described as a bit of irony. Hart family member, Smith Hart took yet another jab at TNA on his twitter page while speaking about his concern for another Hart member's blatant mis-use on WWE television. Hart, who over the past year has taken many shots at TNA wrote the following on his twitter account in response to a TNA fan who pointed out his double standards and angst against TNA while complaining about the use of WWE Diva Natalya Neidhart in a farting gimmick in WWE television.

"No she unlike the X division has a fundamental understanding of WRESTLING, but TNA has much worse problems than bottom rung talent"
(FYE - SHOOTING IS A WRESTLING term  )
Hart is no stranger to shooting on TNA and wrestlers that work there. Not long ago Hart used his Facebook page to write an extensive column where he used blanket statements against TNA wrestlers calling them untrained, u…

MVP Discusses a Potential WWE Return & Working with John Cena on a New Mixtape

Report by By - Vince KnightTheWrestlingTimes.comTAGS - WWE NEWS , John Cena,MVP - John Cena appearing on his new mixtape and an idea he had while with WWE:
"The guy is exceptionally good. His freestyle abilities are better than most. For the people who say that he sucks, he could probably beat your favorite rapper in a freestyle competition. We sat in my studio in my house listening to a few beats and wrote a few things. They were really good. The one that I liked the most was something we worked on called ‘Urban Desperado.’ We were both very pleased with what we came up with, and I had the idea that I wanted to have R-Truth on it as well."

"At the time I was with WWE, my idea was the three guys who actually perform their own entrance music to all work on the track and for it to be released by the company. I thought it could have been a big hit, but I ended up leaving before that could come to fruition. I still have it in the vault. It’s possible it could surface."…

Height: 6'4"

Finishing move: Fame-Ass-Er

He was a three-time Tag Team Champion as part of the Smokin’ Gunns, but Billy Gunn achieved most of his success once he decided to become "Badd Ass."

After the Gunns went their separate ways, Billy found a new attitude along with the Road Dogg Jesse James. As the New Age Outlaws, Road Dogg and Badd Ass captured the Tag Team Titles three times, making Gunn the only superstar in Federation history to be a six-time champion in the tag team division. One night after WrestleMania XIV, the Outlaws joined D-Generation X, the most powerful and influential factions in Federation history. Together, the Outlaws became perhaps the most popular and successful duo in Federation history.

WWFX Champions Showcase Tour 2012 Results

Report by By - Vince KnightTheWrestlingTimes.comTAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS , MMA News  ,Indy news,Billy Gunn - The show started a little late, but Mr. Colt (Colt Cabana) came down to successfully fire the crowd up for the show. Great reactions all around that definitely made up for the fact that the arena wasn't sold out. The first match was Billy Gun vs. Jimmy Yang.

Billy Gun vs. Jimmy Yang

- Basic opening match. Some pandering at the beginning. Gun, who was working mostly in his D-X character and not really as Mr. Ass, mostly dominated the match as the big man, keeping Yang down and only allowing a few spots from the Asian Redneck. Crowd chanted both men at times, which slightly visibly confused Gun. The match was a short affair as Yang scored the pinfall after Gun and Yang botched the standing moonsault finish.

Winner: Jimmy Yang

Sting:
I think the Patriots are going to win it because Tom Brady is going to be on top of his game… he's built a rep for pulling out all the stops in big games. Although Eli is a roll and the Giants have a great defense, Brady and the Patriots are going to be so confident going into it, it'll be tough for the Giants to come out winners.

Well, YET AGAIN, my Dallas Cowboys underperformed this year and didn't get into the playoffs, so I really don't have a vested interest in EITHER the Pats NOR G-Men in this year's Super Bowl. With that being said, I begrudgingly have to predict that the Giants will yet again upset the Patriots because of their Uber-Athletic Defensive line & good secondary. Plus….. I LOVE when Tom Brady gets his A$$ KICKED IN! There ya go…

The UFC 143 Highlight Reel - The Top 5 stories out of "Diaz vs. Condit" event in Las Vegas

Report by By - Kent Jones,  TheWrestlingTimes.comTAGS - MMA News- After a night of lackluster fights from last week's UFC on Fox 2, this week was only slightly better with two great fights, and a series of great moments for up-and-coming fighters in the UFC.

5. Josh Koscheck Looks Lost

Even though Koscheck was able to win his fight via split decision, he seemed to be completely out of it and not focused during the fight. Granted, Mike Pierce frustrated Koscheck to no end, and had him confused on what sort of gameplan to follow as he didn't use his wrestling as often as he usually does. Koscheck kept looking up at the monitors around the arena for the time, and he seemed to do it quite a bit during the fight. There's not too much of a small window to get another shot at the Championship, so he should be a couple of fights away. Hopefully, he comes back better than this lackluster fight.

With hype all week from the UFC and journalists alike, there was anti…
