    2010 - Highspots.com's owner and parent company, Michael Bochicchio and Highspots, Inc. filed a lawsuit against TNA star Ric Flair in the Superior Court of North Carolina. The lawsuit was filed over issues regarding money Flair allegedly owed Highspots and the original National Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight championship belt, which Highspots claimed they were given as collateral for the loan. Highspots had maintained possession of the belt and had previously tried to sell the belt to make up the amount they have alleged Flair owed them, only to learn that another entity, Combraco, Inc., already held a lien on the property for money Flair owes them. Highspots sued, claiming they were owed $35,000 from money lent to Flair, as well as money spent on photos and other materials created in conjunction with Flair appearances. They were also claiming they are owed one more appearance contractually by Flair, plus interest on money owed.

    Highspots' side was that they lent Flair $31,000 and $35,000 on different instances. Flair agreed to make appearances to make up the amounts. Flair made two signing appearances and also appeared with Roddy Piper in a shoot interview DVD for a total of three appearances. So, Highspots is claiming they are owed for one final appearance to make up the remainder of the $31,000, plus the entire $35,000 loan. Flair's attorney responded to the lawsuit on 7/21, noting that Flair had accepted a wire money transfer from Highspots to the tune of $35,000, which is the amount in question for the second loan. There is no mention of the initial $31,000 beyond the mention of a "loan that had been previously addressed." The agreement, according to Flair's side was that Flair would then do a series of autograph appearances for Highspots to work off the debt. Flair's attorney claimed to the court that two such appearances were made, which each "generated $10,000 per appearance" while the remaining appearances "were canceled" by Highspots. In the filing, Flair's attorney wrote that the cancellations were made "without prior warning" and that Highspots had "denied Flair the ability under the agreement to repay the balance of the loan." In regard to the NWA championship belt, Flair's attorney claims that "at no time" did Flair pledge the belt to Highspots as collateral. Flair's version of events is that the belt was brought to the autograph sessions and that Highspots took possession and "refused to return it." In noting the lien to Combraco, Inc., Flair's attorney's claimed that at no time did Flair lead Highspots to believe they had "security interest" in the belt. Flair is claiming Highspots has "wrongful, unlawful and unauthorized possession" of the belt. The filing also mentioned that Flair did call the local police in Charlotte "asking for advice on how to retrieve it." In asking around, there was a story making the rounds in the local wrestling scene several months back that several officers came to Highspots' office, trying to get the belt but left after being shown the paperwork regarding the issue.

    The filing also featured an interesting claim from Flair's side that Highspots.com had failed to pay Flair after an appearance at a "Mid-Atlantic Fan Fest" (obviously, last year's NWA Legends Fanfest in Charlotte) as he was scheduled to work for seven hours and be paid $7,500. Flair's attorney claimed Flair instead worked thirteen hours and was "compensated only $19,000" - and had he been paid for the "full extent of his services", there would have been "sufficient funds" to repay any debt to Highspots.com. Interesting to note that NWA Legends Fan Fest promoter Greg Price came out publicly several months back regarding his dealing with Flair over the course of that event. His statement, reprinted on Page Two, included a claim that Price cut a deal with Highspots and Flair where Flair received money up front and the remainder would go towards Highspots' debt. Instead, Flair allegedly held Price up for much more money during the course of the event, which Price eventually paid Flair and not Highspots. Obviously, Flair and Price's accounts greatly differ from the other, but if Price was the one paying Flair, not Highspots, one has to wonder how Flair can place the blame on Highspots to begin with and how it is even material to the money owed. Flair's filing asked that Highspots be denied all of their claims, that the court rule that any debt to the company has been satisfied and that the NWA World championship belt be returned to his possession and that Highspots be forced to pay the court costs. The lawsuit would be settled, but not without lots more legal drama, including an order for arrest issued for Flair had he not paid Highspots.com their settlement.

    2010 - Samoa Joe was suspended by TNA. He was not happy after his match with Jeff Hardy and was vocal about it in the back after match. The problem that we were told got him suspended was that he went into the production truck during the broadcast to complain, which is seen as a breach of etiquette. He will be suspended for about a month.

    2010 -China Broadband Inc. announced that they have appointed Shane McMahon as their CEO.

    2010 - WWE broadcast WWE NXT. Richard Trionfo filed the following TV report:

    We see highlights from last week, including the departure of Eli Cottonwood and his freaking out over the elimination.

    We are live on tape from Laredo, Texas and your announcers are Michael ‘Deep in the Heart of ’ Cole and Josh ‘Let’s go on a road trip to Waxahachie’ Mathews.

    Matt Striker welcomes us to NXT and he brings out the six remaining rookies and they come to the ring. We are told by Michael Cole that the next elimination takes place next week.

    Matt says that they need to address what happened at the end of the show with the brawl. Matt says that they will have to kiss and make up. That is fitting because there will be a kissing contest tonight featuring the Divas. Matt calls on the co-Women’s Champions Michelle McCool and Layla.

    Layla has Kaval hold their title belts. Michelle says that they have been thinking. She wants to see the softer, sweeter side of the rookies. How they kiss tells them a lot about how they are going to be as a WWE Superstar. Michelle says that they just want to kiss them. Layla and Michelle want to make sure that the rookies want to kiss them. They have to kiss as long, soft, and passionately as they want. Layla says that they will choose the best kisser. The winner gets a fabulous package of prizes.

    Husky Harris is first and Michelle takes a look at Husky’s shirt and wants to get the engine revving. Michelle wants Husky to sweep her off her feet. Husky hesitates and then Michelle says that they won’t kiss her. Michelle says that they have brought in their own local expert. Her name is Margaret and she is the homecoming queen from 1993. Michelle makes sure that they don’t get too close to Margaret.

    The second victim is Michael McGillicutty. After he is done, he compares notes with Husky. Michelle tells Lucky Cannon it is time for him to get Lucky. Percy Watson is the next person to pucker up. Now it is time for Kaval to kiss Margaret. Michelle and Layla think about it and while Kaval wants to be saved. Layla kisses Kaval instead. Michelle tells Kaval that he still needs to kiss Margaret. The final person is Alex Riley. Alex jumps in there and faints from the passion.

    Michelle and Layla find out from Margaret who the winner was and she whispers it in their ears. The winner is Lucky Cannon.

    Layla tells Lucky and everyone that they have won halitosis, gingivitis, athlete’s foot, tonsillitis, and cooties.

    We go to commercial.

    Match Number One: Kaval with Michelle and Layla versus Husky Harris with Dashing Cody Rhodes

    Miz comments on Michael McGillicutty. It feels like he has seen this before. It is good that he wants to follow in daddy’s footsteps. He says that his dad was good, but Michael is mediocre.

    Ashley Valence is in the back with Michael McGillicutty and Kofi Kingston. Michael says that the Miz knows nothing about him. To sit behind a camera and call him mediocre is pathetic.

    Lucky Cannon and Mark Henry enter and Lucky says that he is going to have his shot at the Miz tonight.

    Miz stops the yapping in the back and says that it is fitting that all of the attention is about him. Miz says that they can fight each other and maybe the winner might be able to face him in the ring.

    Kofi says that Miz likes to talk a lot. Maybe one time Miz can put his money where his mouth is. Kofi suggests that Michael faces Lucky tonight and the winner faces Miz tonight. That is assuming Miz is afraid. Kofi wants to know if Mike the Miz is afwaid of the rookies. Miz reminds Kofi that he beat Kofi for the United States Title. Miz says that he will eat their rookies alive.

    Kofi goes first and he says that as much as he hates the Miz, if you are talking about the worst pro, he has to go with LayCool. Kofi says that Kaval is the closest thing to a ninja and they had him come out in a pink snuggie. LayCool is next and they say Kofi.

    Mark Henry says that the worst pro is the one who had the first elimination and that is Zack Ryder. Cody Rhodes says that the worst pro is the gentleman whose Intercontinental Title he is taking and that is Kofi Kingston.

    Miz interrupts and he says that all of the pros are the worst. Morrison wants to know if Miz is going to come with anything original. Morrison starts to talk and Miz points out that Morrison has done nothing since they broke up as a team.

    Percy Watson says the person he has had the hardest time getting along with is Alex Riley. Riley talks down to people. If he sees Alex backstage, Alex bumps into him and walks past. He says that is Alex’s mentality. He thinks that he is better than everyone.

    We are live on tape from Indianapolis, Indiana and your announcers are Michael ‘Why are people complaining about my Peyton Manning jersey’ Cole and Josh ‘Jimmy Chitwood for Smackdown GM’ Mathews.

    Vince McMahon is introduced by Lillian Garcia and he makes his way to the ring.

    Michael Cole mentions the job that AJ Lee did on Monday night on her first night on the job.

    Vince says that selecting a General Manager for Smackdown has been an arduous task. He wanted to find someone people would respect. He also wanted to find someone with integrity, character, and charisma as well as experience. He wanted someone who would use their authority and back it up. Vince introduces the new General Manager . . . Booker T.

    Booker makes his way to the ring and he shakes Vince’s hand.

    Michael Cole sucks up to Booker and says that Booker cannot do a worse job than Teddy Long.

    Alberto applauds Booker as he enters the ring and he has something to say. Alberto wants everyone to give it up for Booker T. He congratulates Booker on being the new General Manager of Smackdown. Booker must be happy because he is going to be working with Alberto because Alberto will be the new World Champion at SummerSlam.

    Booker tells Alberto that if he is going to suck up, he has to be a lot smoother and not make it sound like a bunch of crap. Booker says that he heard what Alberto had to say about Sheamus.

    Alberto tells Booker that Sheamus is beneath him and nothing but a peasant. He grew up as a fat red headed hooligan. Alberto says that he has the blood of champions in his DNA. He was bred for greatness. Alberto was going to say that he doesn’t have to kiss Booker’s butt but Sheamus interrupts Alberto.

    Sheamus comes to the ring and he is dressed to fight. Sheamus congratulates Booker on becoming the new Smackdown General Manager. He says that unlike Bertie over there, he means it. Sheamus tells Booker that the first pint is on him. Sheamus tells Alberto that he can talk about where he grew up all he wants, but Sheamus says that he is proud of where he came from and who he is. He didn’t have someone brushing his teeth or wiping his arse when he was younger.

    Sheamus says that he would also not ask for three weeks off so his manicured nails won’t get dirty. He asks Alberto if he is not going to wrestle before their match at SummerSlam.

    Booker says nay nay and tells Alberto and Sheamus that they have matches.

    Alberto says that he does not care who Booker is but he will not compete until SummerSlam.

    Booker tells Alberto that he might have all the money in the world, but it does not mean that he can hear better. Booker says that he is the boss and Alberto will compete, sucka, in the center of the ring. Alberto will face none other than Randy Orton.

    Booker tells Alberto to get his boots on and get those boots a-clickin’.

    Booker tells Sheamus that he appreciates what he said earlier, but Sheamus is wrestling next and he will be in a knockdown, toe to toe fisticuffs with . . .

    Tensai.
