Found November 14, 2012 on Wrestling Truth:
RVD says it’s TNA that’s slowing him down: Although it might appear that Rob Van Dam is beginning to go through the motions and is winding down his in-ring style, the ECW original is claiming that TNA are the ones preventing him from doing some of the things he used to. The X-Division Champion is coming off a match with Joey Ryan at Turning Point, that wasn’t given much more time than a Impact bout. “I can still do everything I ever could do. The only time I don’t is when I’m held back by things beyond my control,” RVD said during a recent interview with ProMMANow.com. When you’re on TV it’s all about the time, when you’ve got 4 or 6 minutes you’re not going to see a match that goes all around the arena. I’d prefer it that way; I wish I could bring a chair in, throw the rules out, make every match hardcore, because that’s where my heart is. I’m a show-off and I want to show off that I have a lot more moves.” One has to question why the company would give him the X-Division title if they’re going to stifle his in-ring work and fail to use him to put over younger talent. There’s certainly room for TNA to push the envelope, while WWE is constrained by the PG era. ________________________________________________________________________________ Cody Rhodes shaken-up after SmackDown taping: Live fan reports from this week’s WWE SmackDown tapings in Cleveland, suggest Cody Rhodes took a nasty bump during the Tag-Team Title match being filmed for Main Event. Rhodes reportedly landed hard on his shoulder after being knocked off the ring-apron and had to take a breather. Medical staff looked him over and he was visibly shaken-up, but he soldiered on until the end of the match. He doesn’t look to be injured enough to take time off. ________________________________________________________________________________ Alberto Del Rio doesn’t think Attitude will return: During an interview with CBS Cleveland prior to Tuesday’s tapings, Alberto Del Rio said he didn’t think the edgier content would return now that Linda McMahon has bowed out of politics. “To be honest with you, no, because we don’t decide that.” It’s a business decision said Del Rio. “The company must do whatever is best for the company and the fans.” Ricardo Rodriguez who was with Del Rio discussed Jerry Lawler’s heart attack. “We were hearing everyone kind of panic and it was very scary,” said Rodriguez. “You’re at a point where he basically died… It was definitely a scary moment.”
