What Happened After Smackdown Went OFF Air! AEW Star Fined! Jim Cornette Responds!Wrestling News!


Here is your news for
November 23 2019 We’re starting with some news
from last night’s SmackDown, as the planned six-man-tag
main event ended in chaos. Originally set to be Roman Reigns,
Shorty G and Mustafa Ali taking on
King Corbin, Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode, it wasn’t long
until the show was interrupted by an invading Team RAW,
led by Seth Rollins. After jumping into the ring, Rollins
quickly came to blows with his
Shield-brother Roman Reigns, and when the rest of Team RAW came
out, team SmackDown also came
down to even things up. In a twist that looked like it came
from the Monday Night Wars, Team
NXT arrived by jeep, led by Triple H, Shawn Michaels and the Road
Dogg, in a similar style to DX’s
invasion fo WCW, over 20 years ago. The brawl continued as the show
went off the air, but after the
cameras stopped rolling, things went from
bad to worse for King Corbin. Hearing DX’s theme plays, the group
of renegades came out wearing NXT
shirts, and after pretending to add Corbin to their group, instead
laid out the former Money in the
Bank winner with their finishers. Survivor Series is less than 48
hours away, but it seems that NXT has the advantage going into the
show, thanks to D-Generation X. Also on SmackDown, fans got to
see a brand new look for the
Intercontinental Championship, which was
revealed by Sami Zayn. The new black and gold design is
the second championship re-design
in two weeks, as last week’s show saw the Universal title get a new
blue strap to represent the title’s
new home on SmackDown. This is just the latest redesign of
the title that debuted in September
1979, which Pat Patterson quote-unquote “won” in a fictional
tournament in Rio de Janeiro. Interestingly, the newly-retired design,
featuring the white strap, was brought back in late 2011, by none other
than AEW Vice President Cody
Rhodes. Nakamura will take on US Champion
AJ Styles and NXT North American
Champion Roderick Strong in non-title action this Sunday at
Survivor Series, and qualified for the
match back at July’s Extreme Rules event, where he defeated Finn
Balor to win his first IC Title. WWE Shop didn’t waste time in
taking orders for the title, which
is currently available for $430, but won’t be
ready until December 12th. With the fact that the title was ready
to be pre-ordered immediately, its
clear the WWE had this design planned for a while, as we can’t
help but wonder what title will be
changed next. With this week’s episode of Smack
Down being held in Chicago, there
were plenty of CM Punk chants by the crowd,
but for once, that wasn’t a bad
thing. When AJ Styles, flanked by Karl
Anderson and Luke Gallows
appeared during the show, the Phenomenal One said that he’s
the best thing going in Chicago,
and after a Punk chant broke out, responded saying
“I would mop the floor with him,
so shut up.”
A clever impromptu response by
Styles, its interesting that AJ
would cut the chant so quickly as fans continue to speculate
on another match for the Best
in the World. Punk has already had a major
effect since his return a couple of
weeks ago, as it seems Seth Rollins has taken Punk’s advice about
Twitter, and has stop bringing up
a match between the two. After a series of tweets from the
Architect wanting to fight Punk, Rollins
has kept quiet online, but did an interview with 101WKQX about
his relationship with Punk, saying: “Here’s someone who’s been in the
doldrums for the last few years
because he got his butt kicked in the Octagon so bad he didn’t want to
show his face anywhere, now he
shows back up on a WWE show. It’s called WWE Backstage. You can
say it’s an FS1 show all you want,
which it is, and you may be paid by FOX, but that show doesn’t exist
without our company, the company
that you left five years ago. So, say whatever you want, play it
however you want, That’s what
Punk always does. But at the end of the day, if he wants to come on a
show and run his mouth about me
and about a company that he has no part of for the last five years,
then of course I’m gonna stand up
for it. This is a place that has given me everything that I’ve ever wanted
in my life, not only for me, but it’s
provided me a living for my family, for people that I love, that I
care about. And of course, I’m going
to have its back. I’m not going to sit here and let you push it around
and push me around and act like
you’re so cool. You couldn’t bust a cherry in a fruit fight, dude. So, I
want to make some money. So, if CM
Punk wants to talk all the smack in the world, I’ve invited him a million
times to now come to my ring, come
to my domain on live television where you can’t hide behind anything.
No desk and come. Let’s do this thing, man. Let’s fight. Let’s fight it out
like men. … So, the bottom line is, wherever
whenever he wants to do the thing, if
he wants to man up and do it – I’m there. For me, the only place this
match happens is WrestleMania in
the main event, because that’s the only reason I’m picking a
fight with him.” Rollins’ actions on Twitter this year
hasn’t helped him get over with the
crowd, and now it seems that the best way to get fans to support
him again is to turn him heel, and
have a match with Punk at WrestleMania 36 next year. Back to SmackDown now, and Daniel
Bryan may have called out The Fiend
during tonight’s show, but instead got his old foe and NXT
mentor The Miz. Not only did Miz slap the Yes! Man,
but the two had a match, which it looked like Bryan was
going to win. After a Yes! chant with the Chicago
crowd, Bryan attempted a running
knee, but was trapped by the Fiend, who applied the
Mandible claw. Bryan and Wyatt have faced off
plenty of times in the past, but this
was before the Fiend, and fans should expect a fantastic match
this Sunday at Survivor Series. One person fans shouldn’t expect
is ACH, as the former Jordan Myles
is gone from WWE, but is also looking at getting other black
Superstars out of the company. A tweet of the NXT Breakout Super
star winner signing his departure
papers was commented on by AEW star Big Swole, but ACH said he
wanted to get her husband out
of WWE as well. For any of you who don’t know,
Swole is married to Cedric
Alexander, and whilst the former Cruiserweight Champion hasn’t
commented publicly on the matter both he and Swole did like
ACH’s tweet. Brad Shepard is reporting that
WWE are aware of this and are keeping tabs on what ACH
says on social media. Alexander received a short, nice
push earlier this year, after being
signed in 2016, following huge “Please Sign Cedric” chants
during the Cruiserweight Classic. A former Cruiserweight and 24/7
Champion, hopefully WWE can
figure out a way to elevate him, as we too will be keeping a close
eye on this situation. We’ve got a Big SPOILER alert
next, so if you don’t want to hear
about it, we recommend you skip ahead a minute in this video: WWE is holding Survivor Series
weekend this Sunday, and it seems
that Triple H’s promise of an epic surprise may have been
found out. Mike Johnson of PW Insider has
reported that the company has re-
signed John Morrison to a deal, and he very could well be a part of
team NXT, both at tonight’s War
Games event, or tomorrow night Survivor Series. At WarGames, the team of Keith
Lee, Dominik Dijakovic and Tommaso
Ciampa is missing a fourth man to battle the Undisputed Era, which
could be Morrison’s return. If that happens, it makes sense that
Morrison could also be a part of this
Sunday’s Survivor Series event, but it seems we’ll have more
answers this time tomorrow. On SmackDown, the road to Survivor
Series continued, as Rhea Ripley was
confirmed to be the captain of NXT’s women’s team for
the event. In cross-brand action, Ripley faced
off against RAW captain Charlotte
Flair and SmackDown captain Sasha Banks, which saw Ripley pin
the queen who had Banks locked
in the figure-eight. Ripley appeared alongside Tegan
Nox, Candice LeRae, Mia Yim and
Toni Storm, though it wasn’t confirmed if they were her partners. Nox, LeRae and Yim will also be a
part of Team Ripley at WarGames,
when they face Shayna Baszler, Io Shirai, Bianca Belair and Kay Lee
Ray, in the Women’s WarGames
match tonight. Charlotte will be joined by Natalya,
Asuka, Kairi Sane & Sarah Logan
as Team Raw at Survivor Series, while Banks, Carmella, Dana Brooke,
Lacey Evans & Nikki Cross will be on
Team SmackDown. We’ve got some AEW news for you
now, as Cody Rhodes’ first match
since coming up short at Full Gear will take place this Wednesday on
Dynamite, though his opponent
hasn’t been revealed. At Full Gear, Cody promised that if
he lost, he would never challenge
for the AEW World title again, but sadly came up short against Chris
Jericho, when MJF threw in the
towel for his so-called friend. After the match, MJF turned heel
and low-blowed Rhodes, showing
the entire friendship to be a ruse. Appearing on the post-Full Gear
episode of Dynamite, Cody brawled
with both Jericho and MJF, but the debuting Wardlow quickly dismantled
the exhausted AEW Vice President. In addition to Cody’s first match back,
this Wednesday’s Dynamite from the
Sears Center will see Jericho defend his title against Scorpio Sky,
Kenny Omega face PAC in an All
Out rematch and Hangman Page face MJF. Page and MJF were the final two in
the Dynmaite Dozen battle royal on
the most recent episode of Dynamite, and the pair will wrestle
in the finals, for a diamond ring. The Sears Center also hosted All In
in September last year, and All Out
in August this year, so fans should expect big things when AEW
returns home. It’s no secret that AEW has done a
lot of big things in their efforts to
provide an alternative to WWE, but on this week’s latest show,
things went a step too far. During the Dynamite Dozen Battle
Royal, Jimmy Havoc brought out a
staple gun, which didn’t sit well with AEW management, as they fined
him $10,000, and will continue to fine
him the same amount for any further uses. It looks like Havoc will need to figure
out a new favourite toy, as the Staple
gun is finished, which will be great news for Billy Gunn, who took
a staple in thebathing suit
area, this week. We’ve focussed alot of WWE and
AEW today, but there is also the
NWA, which continues to feel the backlash of the comments made by
Jim Cornette during a recent
episode of Powerr. During the show, Cornette compared
the hunger for success of Trevor
Murdoch, to starving Ethiopians chasing a man with Fried Chicken,
which was seen as many as playing
on the racist stereotype of black people loving fried chicken. years, as he said on his Jim
Cornette Experience podcast: “Someone said, ‘If he hadn’t said
chicken, it would have been fine.’
Well, a bucket of chicken sounds funnier than a f****ing plate of sushi
or ham sandwich. So it happened to
be that, because it was funny. Ethiopia is a place where people are
f***ing starving. It’s a starvation joke.
Not a race joke. Whether it was a good joke or bad joke, it was
a joke that’s been told on TBS,
USA Network, broadcast TV stations across America for the past 30
years.” Cornette continued down this rabbit
hole, before half apologising to
people who were only partly offended, as it seems that the
controversial commentator won’t
be seen in the NWA for at least many years, if ever
again. One person who Cornette may
have to apologise to more is Mark
Henry, who seemingly didn’t believe that Cornette was sorry about
what he had said. Speaking to TMZ, Henry spoke
about what Cornette said, and
said he was hurt by the comments, adding: “As much as I can say, I’m
disappointed and I hope that he
can try to fix this. But, some people just don’t like people
of color.” “I would say, ‘Jim … please apologize,
and mean it. And if you don’t mean it,
then go all the way Darth Vader and tell I just don’t like
black people.” Henry would later equate the concept
of losing Jim as a friend to having a
mother or father dis-own you, as it seems the World’s Strongest
Man isn’t ready to accept what
Cornette has said. We’re looking ahead to next month
now, and though many families will
be resting on Boxing Day with their bellies still stuffed with food,
the Superstars of WWE will be
appearing in Madison Square Garden. Returning to the World’s most
famous arena for a Live event, the
show has some interesting matches lined up, with Erick Rowan
taking on Seth Rollins. Rusev and Bobby Lashley will also
continue their feud into the holidays,
whilst the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions the Kabuki Warriors
will face Becky Lynch and Charlotte
Flair in tag title action. Though these are the only matches
annouced, the show will also see
stars like Randy Orton, AJ Styles and the OC, Rey Mysterio, Drew
McIntyre, Kevin Owens and the
Street Profits all appear and the former NXT Tag
Champions will be making
their MSG debut. WWE has a lot of history inside the
Worlds Most Famous Arena, and
this is a great gift for the fans in New York, just one day after
Christmas. And finally today we’re looking at
the results from SmackDown we
didn’t cover earlier, as the road to Survivor Series is nearly at an end. The Undisputed Era will certainly
have a busy weekend, competing
at both WarGames and Survivor Series, but the quartet helped build
momentum, with a victory over the
New Day and Heavy Machinery. When SmackDown Women’s
Champion Bayley called out NXT
Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler for a fight, the former
Hugger actually wanted to get the
jump on the Queen of Spades but this didn’t go according
to plan. Whilst Bayley was able to get the
jump on the top dog in NXT’s
women’s division, Bazler battled back, twice locking in the Kirifuda
Clutch on one of her opponents
this Sunday. Able to break free, Bayley slammed
Bazler into the guard rail to escape,
and we can’t help but think RAW Women’s Champion Becky
Lynch was watching the action
unfold with great interest.
