Can see Rock going for the People's Elbow and Cena hitting The Rock to tag himself in, or vice versa. Have them argue over it, hit a couple of signature moves or have security separate them and build the animosity up for the rest of the feud.

Whatever they do, I can't help but feel it'll disappoint the more hardcore fans like us.


I reckon Cena gets counted out/DQ'ed then FU's Rock allowing him to be pinned, or something.

Also, awesome news:

After receiving several WWE tryouts this year, Ring of Honor star Claudio Castagnoli has reportedly signed with WWE.

Castagnoli, one half of the ROH tag team "The Kings of Wrestling" (along with Chris Hero), has already reported to WWE's developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling.

According to an FCW source, Castagnoli will be known as "Antonio Cesaro."

At this time, there's no word on the WWE status of Chris Hero. Both men impressed WWE officials during their tryouts and the most recent talk was that they'd be brought in together as a tag team.

sounds like I might be right


Also is anyone else getting annoyed by wrestlers both past and present constantly tweeting and ruining the surprise? With the whole rock thing rather it being the worlds worst secret I would much rather have it as an unexpected announcement on raw. We've known for a few months now that he was planning something as survivor series, and now we've pretty much been told what it is. Would much rather he turned up at raw unannounced and revealed what it was.

Whatever you think about Survivor Series it's a damn sure better than them being on opposing sides

If they do something they should have them manage two teams with the winning managers getting to pick the stip for Mania .... they should then have them pick just a straight up wrestling match ... no gimmicks.

This wont happen

Because of the "every title match will be at least double points" there are already a shitload of points available. No bonus needed.

And WWE.com have now officially confirmed it:

WWE.com wrote:WWE sources have confirmed that The Rock and John Cena will be a part of a Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Tag Team Match.

Stay tuned for more details

Who needs any build up or reasoning! Lets just throw it out there on Twitter & .com.

I'm expecting some form of unintentional miscommunication that will lead to either one or both being eliminated consecutively, ultimately leading to their team losing the match.

Do I have faith in WWE? No, none. Rock vs. Cena is going to be massive on the night no matter what happens; maybe WWE should rename everything they do One Night Only because when it comes to anything sustained or logical they're hopeless.


And the week TNA returns to Orlando, their ratings go back up again (1.2). You have to laugh...

Yeah, sure. Open to everyone. To be in with a chance of winning though, it's probably best to start when the new season does (First PPV after WrestleMania).

IMPACT WRESTLING TAPINGS (29th September)

The show starts with Sting in the ring and he has Bobby Roode come to the ring. Sting says that he is looking at the next TNA World Heavyweight Champion. AJ Styles comes to the ring and he discusses his time as the World Champion and then he talks about how it has been a while since he has had a chance to become the World Champion again. AJ tells Roode to take advantage of this title match against Kurt Angle at Bound for Glory.

Kurt Angle comes out to the ring and he discusses Bobby Roode’s match tonight against AJ Styles as Roode continues to wrestle the members of Fortune leading into Bound for Glory.

Match Number One: Brian Kendrick defeated Jesse Sorensen, Kid Kash, Alex Shelley, and Zema Ion in a Ladder Match to become the Number One Contender for the TNA X Division Title to face Austin Aries at Bound for Glory. TNA X Division Champion Austin Aries was doing commentary during this match.

Jeff and Karen Jarrett come to the ring and they call out Frankie Kazarian and Traci Brooks and they come to the ring. Jarrett introduced himself to Kazarian and said that he handpicked Kazarian off of the independent circuit. Jarrett says that he called Kazarian out for jumping ship to "the other company" and when he got released over not getting the spotlight, Jarrett says that he rehired Kazarian because Kazarian begged for it. Jeff called Traci a skank and said that after what he did for Traci, Traci disrespected Karen. Jeff says they are both ungrateful bastards. TNA referees come out to separate Jeff, Karen, Frankie, and Traci. Jarrett said that he is going to make their lives miserable starting tonight.

Jeff tells Kazarian to take that Tennessee whore, but Kazarian stops Jarrett with a punch. TNA Security and the agents try to separate the four, but Gunner shows up and lays Kazarian out with an F5. TNA Security get Jeff, Karen, and Gunner out of the ring while they tend to Kazarian.

Backstage, Anarquia is with the rest of Mexican America and he is getting a tattoo. Anarquia sends Rosita and Sarita to get tequila. Anarquia asks the tattoo lady to send the people in to give him the tattoo. Ink Inc shows up and they attack Hernandez and Anarquia. After a brief brawl, Ink Inc are standing tall while Hernandez and Anarquia are down.

Shannon grabs the ink pen and he gives Anarquia a tattoo while Jesse pushed the camera away. Jesse says that you don’t want to see this and we hear Anarquia screaming.

Ink Inc come out for a match, but Mexican America jumps them and lays them out. Rosita and Sarita spray paint "MA" on Moore and Neal’s backs.

Match Number Two: Madison Rayne defeats Tara with a roll up and extra leverage with her feet on the ropes in a “Queen's Qualifying Match” to face Winter, Velvet Sky, and Mickie James for the Knockouts Title at Bound For Glory. Throughout the match, Madison was flirting with referee Earl Hebner to try to get her way in the match. It appeared to work because Earl stopped Tara from using closed fists during the match. Madison accidentally hit Earl and Earl then let Tara have her way, but Madison was still able to get the win.

Crimson comes to the ring and he calls out Samoa Joe. Joe comes to the stage and questions Crimson saying his name after what Joe did to him. Joe says that he allowed Crimson to be able to walk away. He calls Crimson's undefeated streak a farce. Joe says that the only reason he is disgusted is because without Crimson in TNA, who else is going to be Joe's bitch? Crimson tackles Joe on the stage, but Joe gains the advantage after a low blow. They work their way to the ring and Joe attacks Crimson's ankle and puts him in a modified figure four.

Matt Morgan comes out and attacks Joe. Matt tries for the Carbon Footprint but Joe leaves the ring. Morgan follows Joe up the ramp, but Joe heads to the back. Morgan comes to the ring and helps Crimson to his feet and leaves.

Match Number Three: D’Angelo Dinero defeats Ken Anderson. Devon’s children were seated at ringside and during the match, Anderson and Dinero fought in front of them. Anderson took Dinero down in front of Devon’s children. Devon’s children shoved Anderson, but Devon came out and dealt with his children and the referee. Bully Ray ran in from the crowd and hit Anderson with a Singapore cane. Pope got in the ring and pinned him. Devon took his kids to the back.

Match Number Four: Bobby Roode defeated AJ Styles with a crossface. After the match, Styles shook Roode's hand and he told Roode to win the title. Styles raised Roode's hand.

In the final segment of the night, Hulk Hogan came to the ring and he says that he feels like he has had a million pounds lifted off of his shoulders. After some soul searching, he said the Hulkamania run is the best run of all time. Hogan mentions how the first day he got in the business, he broke his leg. Hogan says that he learned respect and the ropes of the business. He talks about how he faced Andre the Giant, and sold out Madison Square Garden many times. At the end of the day, Hulkamania could go on forever. Hogan said that he had the chance of a lifetime to come to Impact Wrestling with three decades of knowledge and change Impact Wrestling. Hogan mentions that he has been here for almost two years and every moment has been worth it, including watching names like Bobby Roode, James Storm, AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, and Rob Van Dam step up.

Hogan says that unfortunately it is the end of the road for him. Hogan says that he wanted to tell his fans first, even before his wife. When he lost his family and his health, the only thing he didn't lose was the fans. No matter how bad it got, he knew the fans would still be there. Hogan says that he made the decision that his run is done and says that Bobby Roode, James Storm, and AJ Styles are the stars of the future.

Hogan says that he is inviting everyone to come to Knoxville next week for a formal announcement because that will be the last time that we see him in this ring. Hogan leaves.

Don't know whether to believe that last segment is storyline or not. If it isn't, where does that leave the main event - that they've been building to forever - for Bound for Glory? Both Eric Bischoff & Hulk Hogan's contracts with TNA are up sometime in October, however. Whether they leave or stay, they're ultimately not the reason the company is in the gooseberry fools. On the flip side of that, they've meant absolutely nothing for ratings either, but then you can argue that's largely not their fault, because most of IMPACT is written by Vince Russo.
