New Day Respond To Bullet Club Elite Challenges, Say They're The Best Trio In The World, More

The New Day have been in a bit of a one-sided feud lately with Bullet Club members Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson, collectively known as the Elite. After several shots, New Day fired back.

In an interview with 2K Sports, New Day noticed a Bullet Club shirt on the interviewer and made him cover up the logo. The interviewer asked what New Day’s beef was with the popular NJPW and ROH stable.

“Search the internets, and ask us a question that matters,” Woods said.

Xavier Woods, who is good friends with Bullet Club and Elite’s Kenny Omega, has had him on his UpUpDownDown gaming channel several times. Over the past several months, the trio of Omega and the Young Bucks have posted videos challenging New Day.

“We’re not just the best tag team, but the best trio!,” Big E said. “Talking about some Young Bucks. Keep my mouth away from your stuff! Best trio, anywhere, including Japan. Yeah, I said it! It’s booty.”

After Big E’s comments, the interviewer offered to trade his Bullet Club shirt for a New Day shirt, but Big E said they didn’t want to because he was a turncoat who failed the New Day’s test.

Speaking of the Elite, they’ll be defending the NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Team Championships against Hiroshi Tanahashi, Michael Elgin and Yoshi Tatsu early this Sunday morning’s Invasion Attack. Wrestling Inc will have full coverage of the PPV live. You can see 2K’s interview with New Day above.

Hulk Hogan Talks About Roman Reigns Embracing The Hate, Triple H, Working In Front Of Big Crowds

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan spoke to Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard recently. You can check out a few highlights below:

Roman Reigns:

“If I was Roman Reigns, I would just listen to what the people want. If they want to boo me, then it’s like Razor Ramon would say–’I’ll be the ‘Bad Guy’ for you.’ Roman Reigns should be as evil as he wants. If they’re booing him, then that’s what they want to see.”

Triple H:

“Triple H has stood the test of time. When he is in the ring, everybody loves watching him wrestle. His work goes back to DX and the NWO–the more evil he is, the more the people cheer him. Wrestling is in his blood, and people know what to expect when he gets in the ring, so people cheer his ass.”

Working at WrestleMania events:

“Once you get there in front of 100,000, the final element is how you respond to the people. Usually by the time you get to a crowd that big, you already have your act together. With a crowd that big–even if you bodyslam a giant–the signals come back awkwardly. It’s such a sea of people, you need to be able to read the crowd and roll to it. That’s why you see Triple H perform on a different level to connect with the crowd. That’s the mental aspect, and that shows you who the masters are out there.”

Hogan also goes on to talk about the Gawker trial and much more. You can read the interview at this link.

You can see the company’s full statement below. One of the more interesting points is that ROH will not have a presence in New York during Summerslam weekend, instead opting to run their own PPV in Las Vegas

Ring of Honor officials are excited to announce the return of the stars of New Japan Pro-Wrestling to the United States for two HUGE weekends of Pay Per View events and National Television Tapings, including ROH’s return to Las Vegas, and long awaited return to the BOSTON area at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium!

Fans traveled from around the globe to see Ring of Honor and New Japan stars clash in Sin City at 14th Anniversary and because of the overwhelming fan response, ROH and NJPW are proud to announce that one of ROH’s DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR weekend will kick off live on pay per view from Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas, NV on Friday August 19 , followed by a National TV Taping on Saturday, August 20!

The Best Professional Wrestling on the Planet then will make its triumphant return to the Boston area for ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA VIII, which will air live on pay per view on Friday September 30 , followed with a National TV Taping on Saturday October 1!

Boston is ripe with wrestling history, with names like Killer Kowalski , Bruno Samartino, Gorilla Monsoon, and George Steele jumping from the record books of the Boston Garden. Classic battles in Boston in the formative years of ROH featuring The Briscoes, Christopher Daniels, Colt Cabana, Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, and Samoa Joe, helped lay the foundation of the company. For the VERY FIRST TIME, the stars of New Japan will be competing IN BOSTON adding to what already what is anticipated to be a wild night in ROH’s FIRST card in Boston in nearly FIVE YEARS!

All four of these events feature the continued partnership of ROH and NJPW, bringing the Honor Nation the best unique & exciting match ups that you have to be there LIVE to see! If history is any indication, all four nights of the hard-hitting, fast-paced action that only ROH and NJPW can bring are likely to sell out!

Death Before Dishonor Tickets in Las Vegas will go on sale for Ringside Members beginning Wednesday, April 13 at 10 AM EST, while tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 15 at 10 AM EST.

According to reports, TNA Wrestling received a cease and desist letter in March of this year over Crazzy Steve and The Decay stable. Ohio indy wrestler Justin Carnes, who has has wrestled as “Krimson”, “Conrad Kennedy III”, and other names since 2000, claims that TNA Wrestling is “responsible for infringement of certain copyrights that are owned or controlled by Carnes.” His “Krimson” character portrays an evil clown.

Carnes says that certain elements of TNA‘s Crazzy Steve character were taken directly from his gimmick, including the red mist, mannerisms, costumes and face paint. Of course, evil clown gimmicks are nothing new in the pro wrestling industry. Carnes notes that in 2010 he was a member of a group called the “Dead Wrestlers Society” and Steve, as a part of The Decay stable, “replicated the Dead Wrestling Society model and teamed with certain other wrestlers who were similar in style to him, which is also a blatant use of Carnes’s works.”

TNA was threatened to immediately stop using the copyrights Carnes claims to own and acknowledge in writing that they will comply by April 6. If the company doesn’t respond or comply, Carnes threatens to “take further legal action”. TNA’s legal team is currently in possession of the cease and desist letter.

For those wondering, Crazzy Steve has been with TNA Wrestling since 2014 and The Decoy stable is his biggest push to date.

It should also be noted that Carnes has worked for TNA Wrestling as enhancement talent in the past.

TNA Receives Cease & Desist Letter from Indie Wrestler Over Crazzy Steve and The Decay

– TNA received a cease & desist letter last month from Ohio indie wrestler Justin Carnes, who wrestled under the name Krimson (an evil clown) and has actually worked for TNA as an enhancement talent, in regards to the Crazzy Steve character and The Decay stable, according to PWInsider. Carnes has also worked under the name Conrad Kennedy III.

Carnes claims that elements of Steve’s performance have been lifted from his work as Krimson, including Steve’s mannerisms, costumes, face paint and the red mist. Carnes also says he created a stable called “Dead Wrestler’s Society” in 2010 and Steve ripped that idea off in TNA.

The cease & desist asks TNA to stop all usage of the copyrights Carnes claims to own, and asks that the company acknowledge in writing that they will comply by April 6th, which was Wednesday. It also noted that Carnes may pursue legal action if TNA doesn’t comply.

No word yet on what TNA plans to do but their legal team has the letter. Steve has been with the company since 2014 and is the current TNA Tag Team Champion with Abyss.
