Pretty sure the second GIF was the kickoff to a storyline where Muta impregnated that lady with his mist and she would later give birth to a giant egg that hatched a wrestler.

Anyway, I stumbled upon Kevin Steen's twitter and he's doing a countdown. Anyone have any ideas what it could be about? (WWE?)

Hey guys, Renee Young has the scoop on the situation:

Dean Ambrose announced his stipulation for SummerSlam (spoilers obviously):

It's a Lumberjack match. Yes, a fucking lumberjack match.

Q: Is heel Paige good?
A: No, she's great.

@poser: The deal right now is that the WWE Network TV will be on traditional TV (and available to all providers in the country who want it) as a pay-tv channel (an HBO type channel in your package) and they will offer the on-demand content online (similar to HBO Go) and will soon offer an app exclusive for the Canadian version of the network (so you can access said content on the go).

Two seemingly fake news stories about wrestlers have popped up today:

1. The Irish version of tabloid The Daily Mirror is speculating that Sheamus could be playing the part of Darth Vader (the guy in the suit, not the voice) in Star Wars Episode VII. He's currently in Ireland, where filming for the movie is taking place and previously donned the suit for promotional tours in Ireland.

2. Despite tabloids reporting that they're getting dropped and all the sign in the world pointing at the apparent end of TNA, they announced today that they've signed Chris Melendez to a contract and that he will be making his debut during the next set of tapings at the Manhattan Center in August. So, who is Chris Melendez? He's happens to be a war vet who lost his leg due to an IED. In 2012 he started training at the Team 3D Academy.

Oh, and Steph being back in the ring... what are the odds they actually go through with her wrestling again and not doing some bait & switch?

I almost guarantee that match is going to end with a swerve-y finish. So confident that weeks away from the PPV, I'm making it a pre-emptive Krazy™ prediction: Nikki Bella will turn on her sister at Summerslam costing her the match.

Oh come on, that's like saying Big Show's going to turn at Over the Limit 2012. We can see it from a mile away. If that Jack Tunney goof @papercut had a brain, he wouldn't let that fly!

Also, after having re-listened to it, at the end of Raw they didn't chant This is Awful or This is Awesome, they chanted "JAMIE NOBLE!" That might be one of the most surreal things I've ever heard.

I doubt that this is the end for TNA. The show still does decent numbers all things considered and they have until October to find another TV deal. Someone will pick them up.

Until these NYC tapings, they were regularly being beaten by COPS reruns.
