Big Evening Update: WWE Injuries, Survivor Series, & More Notes
By Ryan Clark | January 22, 2007
With former WWE stars The Gymini being released from the company last week, they were officially stripped of the Deep South Tag Team Championships. DSW crowned new tag team champions with The Major Brothers, who defeated Samoan Fight Club (which includes former TNA star Sonny Siaki & Afa Jr.) and Smackdown stars William Regal & Dave Taylor this past Friday in Jackson, Georgia.
To follow up on reports yesterday, WWE Canada President Carl DeMarco stated that this year's Survivor Series PPV would not be held in Montreal after all and instead in Miami, as of December there were no plans to move the show elsewhere. So, as of now, there is lots of confusion over this situation. To make matters even more interesting, Devin Cutting sent this in: WWE has updated the PPV calendar that is made available for WWE's media affiliates. The date and location for Survivor Series have officially been changed. Survivor Series was originally booked for November 25th in Montreal, but that's been changed to November 18th in Miami. That's not the only new info from this updated calendar. Chicago has been picked to host No Mercy. The PPV in San Jose has been moved from November 4th to October 28th and will be called Cyber Sunday instead of the previously announced Armageddon.
MTV's Wrestling Society X will not be debuting in Canada on January 30 when the series officially debuts in the United States at 10:30pm ET (9:30pm CT). According to sources at MTV Canada, a standard programming change was made and as of now, the show will not be airing in Canada. While the show is expected to be picked up eventually, the programming change in Canada was not a move done that reflects on WSX in a negative way. To further this point, Wrestling Society X wasn't the only show that MTV Canada pulled from debuting right away. The reality series "Two-A-Days" will not be debuting this month on MTV Canada either and will instead begin airing on March 1. As always, continue to visit WSX.MTV.com for more.
