Another week in the wold of Wrestling Entertainment, what did you miss?

WWE Monday Night Raw & WWE NXT
Welcome to another week in wrestling. As always, RAW is our first stop on the sports entertainment wagon train. We open with the champion, who we don’t see as often as you’d expect on this show. He wants to know if Cena is going to screw him over so out comes Cena and even he isn’t sure. Cena reiterates if Orton wins Cena is fired and if Barrett wins Cena is free of Nexus. This writing is more nuanced than we often get from Nexus. Orton runs down Cena, Cean runs down Barrett. That draws Nexus. Barrett doesn’t care what Cena says about him. At Survivor Series Cena will do what he says. Cena promises, one way or the other, at Survivor Series he’s beating the hell out of Barrett. … Click here to read last week’s full recap!

TNA Impact
TNA is entitled “Kung Fu Bischoff” which doesn’t inspire confidence as I never want to see Eric Bischoff fight again. Bischoff wants Anderson to pin him or he won’t get a shot at Jeff Hardy ever, but Anderson is supposedly at home healing. I have no idea if Anderson has a legit concussion after a scary looking chair shot. His phone voice sounds pretty shaky so my gut instinct is that he is legit hurt. That’s what happens when you take unprotected chair shots to the back of the head. … Click here to read last week’s full recap!

WWE Smackdown
Time to try to give Smackdown some attention. Green Day is still an immediate draw to the show no matter what the ratings say. We open with Edge, in a match. So far so good. The opponent is Alberto Del Rio so things continue to look up. We get a decent amount of match but, with Edge setting up for the Spear, Nexus arrives and lays out both competitors. We notice now that Barrett and Cena are not here. Big Show comes to the rescue, and Rey Mysterio shows up, then even Kane joins the posse and Nexus get driven off resoundingly.Click here to read last week’s full recap!

Last week was a very good week in wrestling, what did you miss? Check out Lucian’s latest three wrestling recaps to learn everything that happened last week in the world of wrestling entertainment!

WWE Monday Night Raw & WWE NXT
There was a PPV this weekend. Among the winners: Team Smackdown, Daniel Bryan, LayCool and Wade Barrett by disqualification. Word is Barrett was still the planned winner until hours before the show. And, even more weird, John Cena and Otunga are tag champs. Speaking of Nexus, they open this week’s RAW. For no good reason they helped take out Undertaker in the Buried Alive match. Barrett doesn’t want to tell you why. So there. Barrett gets another title shot, special guest referee to be determined by tonight’s main event winner. It’s Orton versus any Nexus member. It takes three seconds before Cena is chosen.Click here to read this week’s full recap!

TNA Impact!
Welcome to the all TNA column! TNA opens with a backstage brawl between Tara and Mickie James. These two are reasonably talented wrestlers and it’s nice to see the women grab the spotlight again. These gals put on a brawl just as good as the men until Madison, Serena and the Beautiful People show up and turn it into a street fight. The talent drops as the participants rise but there’s still some good brawling. They eventually all end up in the ring and Ric Flair comes out with Gunner and Murphy, the security guard newbie wrestlers. Flair takes a whole heap of slaps here but still won’t hit a woman. For some reason Flair is able to book a six-woman tag match for later. I have no complaints whatsoever with how this was handled. … Click here to read this week’s full recap!

WWE SmackDown
Welcome to Smackdown, don’t expect to see The Undertaker. At least not live. I’m sure there will be clips galore. In fact, the show starts with some. Kane gets to pose by a tombstone and claim Taker will never be back. Yeah, right. Of all the people who could interrupt I was not expecting Alberto Del Rio. He’s just out for a title shot and boy does Kane flip out on him. The crowd is against Del Rio so much they still boo him attacking Kane. A face finally shows up as Rey Mysterio chases off Del Rio then hits Paul Bearer with a 619. Last run in goes to Edge, who Spears Rey and trashes the funeral set. Kane looked a little weak here, but it will be interesting to see where they are headed with this. Kane and Rey wouldn’t be a fresh feud and I doubt they would do a four-way at Survivor Series. Del Rio goes to Teddy Long to plead for the title shot. Long counters with a #1 contenders match between Del Rio, Rey and Edge. My money is on Edge. That answers that.Click here to read this week’s full recap!
