WWE Release Talent That Creative Didnt Know Had A Contract


Armando Estrada released the following statement

Espérate ... Espérate ... Espérate ...

Everybody, listen to me!

I would like to take this opportunity to let everyone in the wrestling world know that on 6/27/12, I was released from my contract with WWE.

What's that you say??? OH, you didn't know (Road Dogg) I was under contract to WWE? Apparently, a lot of people (including members of creative) were not privy to that information. I have been "working" with World Wrestling Entertainment for almost 18 months. I was only used once during that time period, making a brief cameo as Tyson Kidd's manager in May of last year. I was told I did a great job and to be patient. I have been patient for quite some time now while sitting at home "waiting for the call".
It's not fun, trust me. Numerous creative ideas/scenarios were submitted during my tenure and unfortunately nothing materialized for me. And although my talents were not utilized this time around, should I decide to return to WWE in the future, I firmly believe that door will be open. Timing is everything, not just in showbiz, but in life. Thank you to everyone in WWE!

For those promoters that would like to utilize my talents, believe me when I say, I am the MOST ENTERTAINING individual to step foot into the wrestling industry in the last decade (toot-toot)! If you would like to book me for wrestling shows, autograph signings/appearances, please do so at (serious inquiries only). I will show up on time, in shape, and ready to perform for your audience.

You can also follow me on Twitter @RealArmandoHaHa. Thanks for your time....Oh yeah, 1 last thing. My name es ARMANDO ALEJANDRO ESTRRRADA and I will be making an #Impact soon.........HA-HA! "

Live Raw results for 7/2/2012

Whatsup boys and girls, its only 2 days away from the 4th of July, and tonight we got a huge Raw on hand. Teddy Long is in charge this week for Raw and Smackdown, and theres some rumors that a former WCW champ might be in the building, will he make it go BANG? Stay tuned right here to find out. Also don't forget to join us over at for a live chat with myself and the rest of the SNS family during Raw. See yall there.

Out first is John Cena, who talks about last weeks attack from The Big Show. Cena says that yes, he has never been in a Money in the Bank ladder match. Cena says he has to get ready for anything, talking about how Show will be going home empty handed. All of a sudden we hear a bunch of YES's. Out comes Daniel Bryan, who says that he didn't even know Cena was out there, but Cena isn't relevant to Bryan, but only if he gets his hands on the briefcase, because he will be the first person to lose the title from cashing it in. Cena says that there is probably 1 person who disagrees with him. Out comes CM Punk who says that he knows of probably a lot more people who disagree with Cena. Punk starts a YES chant himself. Out comes Chris Jericho telling Bryan that he is used to people stealing his catchphrases. Jericho talks about no one being able to stop him from winning the briefcase, out comes Kane, who looks at Jericho and just says otherwise. Big Shows music hits, and Bryan attacks Cena from behind which leads to a huge brawl, which ends with Big Show standing over everyone in the ring, and walks out as Kane, Jericho, Cena, Bryan, and Punk are all laid out.

CM Punk/John Cena vs Chris Jericho/Daniel Bryan
Winner(s): No Decision

During the match Cena and Jericho fought up the ramp and backstage. As Punk and Bryan fight, AJ comes out and prances around ringside. Bryan and Punk still fighting, do not see AJ, so she goes to one side of the ring, pulls out a table, and begins climbing to the top turnbuckle. Daniel Bryan runs over and stands in front of the table, telling her not to jump. Punk then steps in front of AJ and begins talking to her. AJ then kisses Bryan and pushes him off the ropes and onto Bryan who catches Punk and they both go through as AJ watches on. The cameras fade to black as AJ starts doing the YES chants as the crowd joins in with her.

Well that was Raw, and it was a pretty good show. Don't forget to join us right back here tomorrow for the live Great American Bash Smackdown. See you guys next Monday for Raw.

News From Extreme Rising In Philadelphia Including Backstage Fight


Last night's Extreme Rising event in Philadelphia drew in the area of 800-900 fans, which the promotion was very happy with considering the negative fallout of the last show.
The next scheduled events will be the weekend of 9/21 in Pittsburgh, PA and Cleveland, Ohio. If those go well, the plan is to return to the Northeast in November.

Perry Saturn suffered a stinger early on in his match with Papadon and couldn't feel his left arm for awhile, so they had to work around that.

There was a short backstage fight before the show between New Jack and Balls Mahoney. There's been heat between the two for awhile and they actually had an argument at the April event that nearly came to blows. The story making the rounds was that when Mahoney entered the locker room, Jack went after him and drilled him hard with a punch, upset about something Mahoney said in a recent DVD interview. The two were separated and kept apart from each other the rest of the night.

Shane Douglas was feverishly taking notes with thoughts on the show all night and was out among the people, thanking them for their support and listening to feedback.

Lots of CZW staff and wrestlers at the show as Rising utilized CZW's ring and equipment.

Backstage visiting were Nick Berk and Boogalou. The promotion was much stricter this time with backstage access.

There are plans to bring in more Luchadors, including Super Crazy, once work visas can be arranged. There's no timeline but it's in the cards.
