MAJOR WWE STARS RETURNING?! by Oli Davis
Sami Callihan Staples WrestleTalk Magazine To Jimmy Havoc’s Head
…Sami Callihan just stapled the WrestleTalk Magazine to Jimmy Havoc’s head.
That’s…that’s… you’re reading it wrong.
The weekend finished with an epic Barbwire Baseball Bat Death Match between Sami Callihan and Jimmy Havoc , which was the main event of the Impact vs UK show. And not only did it have screwdrivers, barefoot stomps onto thumb tacks and lemon juice into cuts – Sami also got the latest issue of the best wrestling publication on the planet, yelled Support WrestleTalk, and then stapled them onto Jimmy’s shoulders and head.

The WrestleTalk Magazine… as worn by Jimmy Havoc. Order your issue now.
Where in the next issue, you’ll likely be able to read about Shawn Michaels returning to the ring.
DX Vs. Brothers Of Destruction
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported last week that “The working idea internally right now is that Michaels is coming out of retirement. Right now it is not for a singles match, and it is targeted, if not scheduled, for Saudi Arabia on 11/2” – which is the second show in the country this year as part of WWE’s reportedly enormous MONEY [deal with the state. C’mon, Greatest In Your House.
But what could this ‘non-singles match’ be?
HBK’s segment on last Monday’s Raw saw him go face-to-face with the Undertaker to promote the Deadman vs Triple H at the 6th October’s Super Showdown event in Australia – where local commercials are apparently advertising Michaels as the match’s special guest referee.
Now CageSideSeats are reporting a rumor – so do take this with a pinch of salt – that the Super Showdown match will build to Michaels teaming with Triple H as DX and the return of the Big Red Political Machine Kane to reform the Brothers of Destruction with the Undertaker. A match that would appeal greatly to the Saudi Arabian Prince’s reported love of 90s WWF.
It’s then been heavily speculated this would build to an eventual Michaels singles match, likely at WrestleMania – where rather than have another match against established legend Taker, he’ll hopefully go up against a plucky up and comer like John Cena.
