Report  By -  Vince Knight,  TAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS

Your Ad Here Lance Storm was a guest Sunday night on The LAW chatting Ring of Honor's 'Border Wars' event coming up this Saturday night in Toronto from the Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto. The full interview is up on the site at http://fightnetwork.com/news/31340:interview-lance-storm-may-2012/ and here is an excerpt from the chat:

The booking of Brock Lesnar since his return:
I certainly would have had Brock win, as most people seem to think was the better idea. I just took exception to the people that thought that one loss killed Brock, and they’ve completely destroyed his heat, and what’s the point? There was a lot of people wanting to think that they had just completely ruined the whole potential of Brock Lesnar. So, I pitched an alternative booking strategy with, “Okay, he lost, it’s not the end of the world.” Comparing it to his UFC run, in that he was a big draw for UFC and he tapped out in 90 seconds in his first match…

Report  By - Vince Knight,  TAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS

Your Ad Here Brock Lesnar was extended an invitation to explain his assault on Triple H on last week's Raw SuperShow, but was nowhere to be found Monday night. Instead, Brock's representative, Paul Heyman, came out to the ring to read a statement.

Heyman said Lesnar has been underappreciated by the WWE audience since day one, and that holds true with corporate management. Heyman also said that as the only man to ever win the WWE Championship, the UFC Heavyweight Championship and an NCAA Division I Wrestling Championship, Lesnar felt betrayed because his contract demands were not met.

Heyman said Lesnar asked him to appear on Raw and read the statement. In the written address, Lesnar took shots at Triple H, saying the WWE Chief Operating Officer is jealous of him, and expressed anger at how he has been treated. Heyman concluded his statement by saying Lesnar has quit WWE and "will never be coming back."-

CM Punk Apologizes For Telling WWE Fan To Kill Himself

Report  By - Vince Knight,  TAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS

Your Ad Here CM Punk apologized Monday evening on Twitter for telling a WWE fan who disagreed with his views on gay marriage to kill himself.

Expressing his disapproval with Amendment 1 Monday morning on Twitter, Punk wrote a message in support of gay marriage being legalized in the state of North Carolina. Amendment 1 is a controversial topic in North Carolina, as it will define marriage in the state constitution as between one man and one woman, and would ban any other type of "domestic legal union" such as civil unions and domestic partnerships.

Punk wrote, "Amendment 1 is ridiculous. It's an invasion of people's rights. North Carolina, why do you care if somebody wants to marry who they love?" Same sex marriage should be legal. The fact that it's illegal is embarrassing."

He continued, "Divorce rate is at least 50% between men and women, so don't give me the values angle. Making same se…

Raw TV preview - Cena & Triple H "injury" follow-up, latest PPV hype, Smackdown stars advertised

Report  By -   Vince Knight,  TAGS - WWE NEWS , TNA NEWS

Your Ad Here WWE's transition from John Cena vs. The Rock to Cena vs. Brock Lesnar to Cena vs. heel authority figure John Laurinaitis over a one-month span continues Monday night on Raw leading to the Over the Limit PPV in two weeks.

No specific items are advertised for Raw. WWE is advertising follow-up on Laurinaitis's show-closing attack on Cena last week, which "re-injured" Cena's arm, and the latest "injury update" on Triple H following Lesnar's show-opening attack.

Neither Hunter nor Lesnar is advertised for the taping. WWE will likely keep Lesnar involved in storylines via "health updates" on Hunter and focus on how the fictional Board of Directors handles Lesnar's future in WWE. This will keep him involved in storylines while off television for a period.

WWE will also be focusing on the WWE Title picture, which is now C.M. Punk vs. Daniel Bryan ahead of their PPV title match in…
