WWE announced to day that new subscribers will receive WWE Network free of charge for the entire month of November – including Survivor Series on Sunday, Nov. 23rd. There will be a New Simplified Price Plan: WWE Network will be available for $9.99 per month with no commitment and the ability to cancel at any time.
New subscribers can begin signing up tomorrow, October 31, at 11:00 am ET.
WWE issued the following statement:
“We are excited to offer new WWE Network subscribers the month of November free to experience all of our live programming, explore thousands of hours of video-on-demand content, and watch Survivor Series, one of our most popular events,” said Michelle Wilson, WWE Chief Revenue & Marketing Officer. “Our research combined with best practices in digital subscription businesses affirms our belief that a simple, single price plan will help us continue to grow WWE Network’s subscriber base.”
There is speculation that former Divas Champion could be returning to WWE. On October 24th, WWE filed a trademark application to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for ‘Eve Torres’ for “wrestling exhibitions and performers by professional wrestlers.” This description matches performer names the company applied to trademark.
Torres was the first to win the Divas Championship 3 times. She left WWE in January 2013 by her own choice to focus on her role as an instructor for the Gracie Self-defense Program for Women. Earlier this year she landed a role on the El Rey television series Matador.
Last night on TNA Impact Wrestling, Bobby Roode defeated Lashley to become the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion. Kurt Angle was the special guest referee.
On Twitter, Roode thanked those who watched & supported:
At Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings in Houston, Big Show announced to the crowd that Daniel Bryan likely needed another surgery. There was talk of Bryan needing Tommy John surgery on his elbow, which has a long recovery time, but it’s not known if that’s the surgery Big Show was referring to. At the SmackDown tapings Big Show had fans start a YES! chant for a video that would be sent to Bryan to cheer him up.
A WWE source told The Wrestling Observer that there is no timetable for Bryan’s return & no guarantee that he will be able to return.
It was reported earlier that TNA executive Vice President John Gaburick was in New York finalizing a TV deal for TNA. However now TNA executive Bob Ryder is dismissing that entire claim.
According to Ryder Ganurick is actually currently in Nashville TN but he was indeed in NY this past weekend. It is also stated that on Monday they look to start some new tapings in NY. Also according to an article on wrestling inc (http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2014/1029/584444/more-on-new-tna-tv-deal/) Dixie Carter is said to make some type of announcement Friday.
We will keep reporting on this story as more information becomes available.
One of the many qualities of the world of sports entertainment is just that—entertainment. One of the newest teams in the WWE is the pairing of The Miz and Damien Sandow, otherwise known as Mizdow. 2014 has been a unique year for Damien Sandow. From being the first wrestler eliminated in the Royal Rumble to a losing streak that began in May, Sandow began taking on a persona resembling that of Charlie Haas’ character in 2008 in which Haas would impersonate other wrestlers. Unlike Haas, Sandow would impersonate other individuals, including Sherlock Holmes and Bruce Springsteen. However, ever since August, Sandow has been in a much more stable storyline as the official “stunt double” of The Miz, who has taken on the persona of an A-list Hollywood movie star.
With Sandow imitating all of The Miz’s actions, literally, Mizdow has become increasingly popular, especially with Sandow mimicking ever single one of The Miz’s moves, including getting faux-punched in the same way that Miz is being attacked by his opponent. While some love this pairing, others call it silly. Some complain that they see Sandow’s talents going to waste as he is resembling a comic relief character like Santino Marella was or even TNA’s Eric Young. While some miss Sandow’s legitimate matches, the Mizdow story adds fun to the world of WWE. While others are in storylines that are more intense, this is still sports entertainment. It’s good for the kids and gives a good laugh for the audience. It’s good to see Sandow on WWE TV and it’s good to see the versatility of the Superstars. It’ll be exciting to see what’s next for both Sandow and The Miz. Will we see Sandow back in the main event picture like when he had the Money in the Bank briefcase? Will we see The Miz back in the WWE Championship picture? Or are they forever in the mid-card? A wrestler can’t be in the title picture forever, so it’s always an interesting observation to see what wresters do to stay relevant and slowly but surely make their way back to the top of the WWE ladder.
Guys I think I’m on the verge of having a panic attack but in the best way possible. UFC184 is coming to my neck of the woods… (Well my future neck of the woods) Los Angeles California, on February 28th 2014. The excitement doesn’t stop there though because UFC president Dana White took to Instagram today to announce that on that card we will see UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey defend her title against challenger Cat Zingano in the co main event. (That bout was originally scheduled for UFC 182 on January 3rd in Las Vegas) also on the card for UFC184 will be Chris Weidman defending his middle weight title against challenger Vitor Bellfort in the main event.

This is a HUGE deal for me because I’ve seen 2/4 of the 4horsewomen fight live (marina Shafir and Shayna Baszler) and to be quite honest I always thought Rousey would be out of my reach since her fights tend to always be in vegas. I’ll be moving to LA in December so the timing is perfect.
I can assure you that if I do indeed attend UFC184 I’ll give you guys play by play exclusive coverage on our twitter account @vasquezsports
Is there anyone like me that’s super excited about this announcement? Let me know by sounding off in the comments.
