    I just want to watch wrestling, less movies more Moves

    News on early SUMMER SLAM plans

    Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Word is that the WWE is already planning for this year's SummerSlamevent. The show is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles again and WWEis looking to possible book a Brock Lesnar vs. The Rock match for the show.

    The reason being that both have mainstream appeal and that with them in a featured spot, the local Hollywood community could get more involved with the event. An example would be having celebrities appearing at theWWE AXXESS event.

    TNA leaving the Impact Zone FOR GOOD

    TNA will move out of the Impact Zone permanently once they tape their "One Night Only" PPVs there in March. They are ending their lease with Universal Studios Orlando and after the tapings they will take their production, rings and sets.

    They have been regularly taping TV there since leaving the Nashville Fairgrounds in June 2004. TNA is getting rid of the costs of the live monthly PPV and the Impact Zone and using the money into running tapings on the road every week.

    TNA vs WWE WrestleMania 29, 3 Hour RAW Plus WWE Show News

    With other wrestling promotions including TNA running shows in the New York area over WrestleMania weekend, WWE is planning to keep their talent busy and away from TNA stars.

    -- The Wrestling Observer has released statistics about RAW's expansion to three hours last summer. The extra hour has resulted in 33% more matches per show and matches going 33% longer. The amount of in-ring wrestling doubled to 78%.

    Wrestlers who have benefited from the longer TV time include John Cena,Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Big Show, Sheamus, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Primo and Epico.

    Wrestlers who had less TV time are Zack Ryder, Tensai, David Otunga, The Great Khali and Santino Marella.

    very much so... But they still fill to much with talking and i know they need to expand the story of a feud and stuff... But more wrestling will make that more real in my opinion

    I think they need to improve the story telling thru matches cause most matches don't mean shit.

    so true... They only throw some together to fill space and time, but if their was actual story behind all matches. Then it would make perfect sense to have them

    Yes there's filler match. Guess what, wrestling had filler matches in the 50's too. It's a part of the business, every promotion has filler matches and they serve a purpose.

    I'm willing to go as far as to say WWE is one of very few promotions that still regularly features matches with a story. And psychology wise no company is as good as WWE perhaps only New Japan Pro Wrestling is better.

    If I post a wrestling match, would you actually be able to recognise the story being told in the ring? Because alot of people love to throw around the terms storytelling and psychology without having a clue what they mean.

    Resent interview with Tara
    The feeling in TNA with IMPACT going on the road: ďOur fans get spoiled and callused. They want to see us draw blood. In Orlando, thank god we are going on the road, our fans in Orlando got a little bit spoiled because they see us every week, but we were out there killing ourselves for entertainment. We are actresses and actors who do our stunts with drama. And when they donít react to certain things, itís like my God, what do you want me to do?!Ē

    I know that mate... But some of the matches are lazy and not worth the time and on another note

    The WWE is like all promotions out their, they do need stories to make a sense of certain matches with certain wrestling. I guess different promotions different reasons

    TNA is a small company in my eyes where it lives its self off very little! yeah i watch it sometime's but there storys suck, the feuds are all over the place, there isnt any big buzz about TNA, for me it doesnt draw me that much to want me to care for the buisness! the stars are WWF/E & WCW rejects because of being let go by WWF/E an TNA Newcomers are the only thing thats good, only rarely we see good wrestlers on there.

    AJ Styles & Samao Joe for me should stop dragging there selfs in to small time they need to go & try WWE! fans would like them alot if they went but would they last long enough? Sting should go b4 its to late an i know he has issue's with vince but WWE has changed with HHH now taking over a few things that vince cant do anymore! Sting needs to go for few reasons HOF, Match with UnderTaker! an if Kurt Angle doesnt go back he wont be in HOF!

    What would it mean for TNA going on the Road!! Entering bigger arena's ect? money!

    TNA are on the right I guess and are now in direct competition with the WWE and will try massive date buys of arenas and stadium....

    So the road to either success or failure is set

    Actually I think very few matches on WWE programming don't serve a purpose. Alot of them are to put the wrestlers over as powerhouses (Ryback), re-introduce them to the audience (Jack Swagger) or showcase a move-set and character (Antonio Cesaro)

    Certain matches with certain wrestling? Can you be any more vague? Different promotions different reasons? What does that even mean?

    TNA is far from direct competition to WWE. They air on different days, they tape in different venues - what exactly makes TNA direct competition to WWE? It's not like they're signing away WWE talent like WCW used to do..

    If TNA fails on the road they'll just go back to Universal. If they pick the right arena's (and from the looks of it, they are) they'll only have to worry about proper advertising to make the touring a succes.

    i get that and understand that friend... But they have other shows to start feuds on aka SUPERSTARS, SLAM, HOUSE SHOWS etc...

    RAW and SMACKDOWN, should be used to extend the feud more and continue the FEUD through out all shows the wrestlers are on

    That way the FEUD means something and actually built right....

    Onto TNA

    They are in competition with the WWE, if they won't

    then WWE would have not bought up a shit load of DATES in venues they knew TNA were going or might have BOOKED

    If they fail, they fail and yes go back to the IMPACT ZONE and try again in a couple of years... But what if they are successful and become a massive company and they take over the WWE

    were does that leave the WWE fans


    Below News on the WWE NETWORK

    As noted earlier here on the website, DirecTV recently issued a survey to subscribers inquiring about the proposed WWE Network. The survey asks,"DirecTV is considering offering its customers a new premium TV network and would like your input." It's noted that the WWE Network would be provided as a separate monthly fee and that 11 of the 12 current Pay Per View events would be shown on the network.

    This seems to suggest that WrestleMania would be the only event not offered as part of the WWE Network package. Pay Per View events would still be made available regardless of a subscription purchase. Other programming mentioned included the Monday Night War, new and classic programming and repeats of RAW and SmackDown. WWE is scheduled to hold a conference call on 2/28 to report the company's fourth quarter earnings and Vince McMahon had promised more details on the WWENetwork then.

    UPDATE: To follow up on DirecTV issuing a survey to subscribers, price points for the network were also tossed out. Pricing included $12.99, $14.99, $16.99, $19.99, $24.99 or $29.99.

    The point of the survey was to gain feedback on if people would commit to a subscription and how much they would be willing to pay per month for it. As also noted last night, the monthly subscription price would include 11 out of 12 Pay Per View events (WrestleMania would remain a one price only event) along with new content.

    More details are expected on 2/28 during the WWE conference call.
    http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news/1...etwork-pricing

    What is the freaking deal with this NETWORK , either give up or go ahead with it and see the outcome

    They had big plans for him though.

    Vance Archer also came from TNA where he was Lance Hoyt, I think that was the last TNA signee.

    I would like to see Samoa Joe in WWE, but it seems pointless in the long run as I'm sure they'd demote him soon after he debuted, as they'd have nothing for him whilst maintain the dominance of the regular status quo.

    I'm always quite amazed at how athletic he is for a large guy
