Daily Update: Natalya vs Charlotte, WWE Roadblock, Charlie Fulton

The Week's Roundup!

In case you missed some of the news this week!  The Hogan vs Gawker trial started on Monday which started with some strange and awkward talk of Hulk Hogan's penis.  It got very, very weird. as there ended up being a discussion (video here) between Terry Bollea/Hulk Hogan and Gawker lawyer Michael Sullivan about how the Hulk Hogan character has a bigger penis than Terry Bollea.  JJ Williams took us on a journey of NXT's weekend at the Arnold Classic.  Paige Van Zant coming off of a loss has been added to the lastest installment of Dancing with the stars.  Even with the heavy presence of the McMahons WWE RAW dropped to normal ratings levels.  Kurt Angle battled Lashley in his final TNA match and his final match helped the TNA ratings not a bit...  Kurt Angle's TNA farewell does all-time low rating.  

Don't forget to check out Mick Foley's appearance on WOR and Jeff Hardy's appearance on WOL.

SATURDAY NEWS UPDATE

WWE & Pro Wrestling

UFC & MMA

  • MMA star Shayna Baszler, who has been transitioning to pro-wrestling for awhile, is heading to Stardom in Japan.
  • Dave has a big article up talking about Dana White's claim that UFC 196 did 1.5 million buys.  The key is that the big men's main events and the big women's main events draw from different audiences, and so when you put a Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz and Holly Holm vs. Miesha Tate fight on the same card, you do better than you'd have done with one or the other, or even, say, two big men's title fights.  
  • Kimbo Slice’s son makes his MMA debut.
  • Invicta FC 16 results from last night on UFC Fight Pass - Ayaki Hamasaki retained the Atomweight title with a 3rd round sub of Amber Brown; Jennifer Maia got the decision over Vanessa Porto to win the interim Flyweight belt; Former UFC Strawweight Angela Hill got a first round KO over Stephanie Eggink; Irene Aldana got a first round TKO of UFC Bantamweight and Four Horsewoman Jessamyn Duke and Roxanne Modafferi got a split decision win over DeAnna Bennett in a Flyweight fight.
  • EA Sports UFC 2 is out this Tuesday and still available for pre-order. Codes for review downloads were sent out last night and the response has been pretty promising so far.
  • Bryan Caraway thinks that Miesha Tate should put up her title against Amanda Nunes next. I guess he doesn’t like money.
  • CES 33 results from AXS TV last night - Andre Soukhamthath got a 5th round KO with a flying knee over Kody Nordby to win the vacant Bantamweight title; Sometime pro-wrestler Chuck O’Neill, who was scheduled for a match with Matt Riddle before getting this fight, got a decision win over Dennis Olsen in a Middleweight fight
