WWE Summerslam main event changed, Scott Steiner shoots on Triple H – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

When Satire Becomes Real

On this week’s Smackdown, Jinder Mahal revealed the stipulation for his third WWE Championship match against Randy Orton: the dreaded Punjabi Prison. ‘Dreaded’ because the matches in it are usually pretty rubbish.

While a Steel Cage stipulation only has one layer of entrapment, the Punjabi Prison surrounds its competitors with two – an inner cage of bamboo, with an octagonal structure topped with ‘razor-sharp bamboo spikes’. It’s so successful, there’s only been two Punjabi Prison matches in WWE history, and the stipulation hasn’t been used in over a decade.

But according to satirical wrestling website KayFabe News – who publish humorously fake articles – this has been the plan all along.

Reddit user GeePrimus has unearthed a 2012 article from the site entitled: ‘Jinder Mahal only hired so WWE can use »

Big Tna Impact Wrestling mistake, why Rusev hasn’t been on WWE – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Memorial Day won’t just be blamed for Monday Night Raw’s inevitably low ratings, it’s also now the reason behind some fan’s anger towards R-Truth.

In honor of the armed forces, Goldust broke his heel character to tweet: 

#RemeberTheFallen

Dustin Rhodes (@Goldust) May 29, 2017

Presumably still enraged by his Golden Truth tag team partner turning on him, R-Truth replied to the non-kayfabe tweet very much in fake pro wrestling mode:

@Goldust Remember I'm gone getcha

— WWE R-Truth (@RonKillings) May 29, 2017

A few fans on Twitter found the message disrespectful, but nobody complained about Braun Strowman’s Us army-mocking Instagram post yesterday!

But that’s probably because we’re all terrified of him.

Rusev was last seen in a WWE ring on the 5th March at the Raw-exclusive pay-per-view Fastlane, where he was written off TV to undergo surgery. »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Tna Impact Wrestling have been taping their TV for May over the last several days, and they’ve seen their fair share of shock returns, debuts and title changes. As these happen in not-yet-aired episodes of Impact Wrestling, skip the next few paragraphs if you don’t want to read them.

Spoilers coming in 3…2…

Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner showed up at the final night of Impact Wrestling’s TV tapings on Sunday 23rd April. Steiner has been a main eventer in WCW, WWE and Tna throughout his career, but has been locked in a legal battle with the latter since he was released in 2012, claiming he was owed royalties from the promotion, and that he was injured because Tna officials allowed Jeff Hardy to wrestle him while Hardy was intoxicated.
