Now that Randy Orton has taken Stephanie McMahon’s command to unleash his remorseless side, the Viper has beaten both The Miz & RVD to within an inch of the injured reserve list. Can Daniel Bryan withstand Orton at his most brutally efficient?
With each passing week, Big Show continues to sink further into the subservience of the McMahon family. How long & hard can the corporate power continue to push the giant until he snaps?
CM Punk will meet Ryback at Battleground, but can Punk keep his animosity in check until then? Or will he be goaded into another ambush?

Last night on TNA’s live edition of Impact Wrestling Dixie Carter continued her crusade to gain control of the chaos within the company. this time by confronting Hulk Hogan.
A week after confronting AJ Styles over comments he made about the current state of affairs TNA President Dixie Carter continued to speak out about the criticisms from fans regarding her leadership of the organization. Earlier on Thursday Dixie hinted at the encounter on social media using the hashtag #RealDixieCarter.
The current angle, which began last week during a “shoot” promo is based on TNA’s growing criticisms coming from fans and industry insiders regarding recent actions by the company and what many believe to be the beginning of the end for Impact Wrestling.
Many prominent names have been leaving the company for several months, some were released while others decided to depart. The storyline has been compared to the current “What’s best for business” storyline being done by WWE. Dixie has been compared to Stephanie etc.
While there are indeed similarities which I believe to be intentional, the degree of reality being injected into the current TNA storyline has many concerned. While we want to believe that the new heel persona from Dixie is just fictional the fact is many believe she is showing her true colors and that her words are more real then we may think.
Several reports have confirmed that Hulk Hogan’s contract will next month. And some believe he might be ready for some sort of WWE return. The current production schedule for Impact has also proven to much for the company with rumors of possibly returning to a single location to film weekly broadcasts.
So the question remains, #TeamDixie or #TeamAJ?
