After a brief hiatus, welcome to the second edition of PINFALL Magazine’s WWE Power Rankings. It has been a most unique week of television in the WWE.

Later in the week, we …

TNA Bound For Glory 2011 Predictions

TNA/Impact Wrestling have done a great job of building up their Bound For Glory PPV. It all started with the Bound For Glory Series, which was a bit messy, but had a great end result. The Sting/Hogan feud has been building up since the mid-90′s, and that will probably lead to a decent number of buys on name recognition alone. The Knockouts Division has been the lone female wrestling bright spot on television all year, … Read entire article »

The UFC’s Brock Lesnar will be in the upcoming WWE ’12 from THQ. Brock is a former WWE champion as many PINFALL Magazine readers know, and it’s interesting to see him crossing over back into the world of wrestling, even if it is just in virtual form.

Today is WWE’s Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View. Usually PINFALL Magazine posts predictions a day or two in advance, but due to recent circumstances they are here day of. The show doesn’t look very interesting from a match-up standpoint, but the on-going Mark Henry storyline has my interest piqued. While I’m not sure if Mark Henry is selling many tickets, he’s certainly selling more than he has at any previous point in his career. A …

According to PWInsider.com, the WWE have parted ways with Maritato. I haven’t noticed him on any tapings recently, but when he was working matches, I always enjoyed what was going down. He’s apparently open to bookings as a wrestler on the independent circuit, so that’s a plus. One of the original ECW wrestlers I remember seeing, as part of the FBI, James Maritato seemed to be fitting right in with the referee roster. Not sure …

Finally… The Rock will come back to wrestling! The WWE has confirmed that The Rock and John Cena will be participating in the same 5 on 5 Survivor Series match at the upcoming SS PPV. There’s no word on who the other eight participants will be, or if Cena/Rock will be on the same or opposing teams, but this is certainly a big bit of news. I would think this is a good way for …

TNA picked a horrible day to feature a PPV. Not only was it the anniversary of the saddest day in recent American History, but also the opening Sunday of the NFL season. PINFALL Magazine isn’t about missing major Pay-per-view shows, but TNA left me zero choice. Here are the results for anyone interested. Seems some semi-interesting things took place, but nothing that made me feel like I missed out. I’m mostly interested in seeing the …
