Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, February 25, 2012

What's been going on this week in the world of professional wrestling? It's time to break it down in the latest edition of SMACK TALK, my wrestling podcast and the quick notes below. Make sure to subscribe, comment on the videos and this post, and let us know your thoughts.


Watch each part of EPISODE 17 below:
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8

  • Kofi Kingston and R-Truth might be teaming up on a regular basis, or Kofi might get a new tag team partner from FCW. This, combined with Evan Bourne's merchandise being on sale, spells bad news for Matt Korklan.
  • Wade Barrett was indeed injured during the battle royal on Monday Night Raw, dislocating his elbow. He'll likely miss WrestleMania, unfortunately.
  • Shaquille O'Neal and WWE keep saying contradictory things towards him wrestling a match this year at Mania. Since they seem to be building towards Cody Rhodes versus Big Show instead of Shaq, I'd trust WWE's judgment of saying he doesn't have a match more so than Shaq's.
  • Jimmy Hart has said that TNA stars need to dress more professionally. Personally, I think the whole company needs to act more professionally in a lot of ways, but I haven't seen much of the performers dressing like slobs, so I can't comment much on that.
  • CM Punk and Chris Brown are having a war of words on Twitter. Punk wants to choke him out, get in the ring with him for a shoot fight and the profits can go to a women's charity, etc. Brown says Punk is roided up (which Punk took offense to because of his straight edge lifestyle, kudos again on that Punk as I agree wholeheartedly) and said he misses the good wrestlers, #notnopunks. 
  • Ron Simmons will be inducted into this year's WWE Hall of Fame. He is likely to be inducted by JBL.
  • Eve may be joining up with a WWE Superstar whilst Ryder might team up with a diva (rumor has it at Layla) to keep this feud going. I don't see it happening.
  • Possibility of not having a divas match at WrestleMania because they understand that people would rather see more time devoted to shit that matters? Why are they realizing this the one year that they have a good potential match (Karma vs Beth Phoenix) as opposed to the previous years when it was bullshit?
