To breakdown a little bit the point of this series is to help give a little bit more of a spotlight to the biggest news from the previous week that just ended. This way if something major took place in any of the major companies that I chose not to focus on in an article it will give me an opportunity to talk about some events in more depth or something else that happened. Another note worth mentioning is that it wont be focused on one company and week to week I will try and mix in different companies to not focus on the same companies every week.
In case you missed it this past week on NWA Power we saw the in ring debut of Scott Steiner teaming with The Wild Cards against Eli Drake, Tim Storm and Robert Gibson in the main event of the show. This week on NWA Power current NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis will defend his worlds championship against Ricky Morton. Again this is a match I never thought I would see cause you never really know which legends will be around for one more match. The shelf life for Rock N Roll is in question as they can't stay semi active forever so let's the dream matches out of the way while we still can.
Looking back on this week it is hard to not mention the entertaining segment on Raw involving R-Truth and Brock Lesnar. With the arrival of the 24/7 Championship it seems like R-Truth has gotten a new life and has found his stride again. Truth doesn't always hit a home run, but when he does the segment immediately become memorable. I don't remember Truth having much interaction with Brock Lesnar and seeing Mojo Rawley take advantage of a weaken Truth to take the 24/7 Championship. In my opinion, if this leads to Rawley getting a little more attention then I'll be happy, cause at this point I'm not sure if Truth needs the championship.
One week ago today history was made at the "Hard to Kill" PPV event from Impact Wrestling when Tessa Blanchard defeated Sami Callahan to capture the Impact Wrestling World Title. In the process Tessa became the first female wrestler to win a World Championship in a North American wrestling company. For those who might not be aware, Tessa had been competing against the men since the summer of last year and had a long standing feud with Sami Callahan and his OVE faction. I've said it before and will again that I don't have much of an issue with Tessa being champion as long as Impact keeps it simple and doesn't get to crazy with it. A simple reign will be just as good as giving her a reign that goes for too long and tries to do to much the first time around and Impact just needs to keep knowing where they are going next.
