Aksana To Face Kane On SmackDown?, WWE Files Trademark For Kayfabe, More

— Raw Interim General Manager and WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis teased at the conclusion of Friday’s SmackDown that Kane would face Aksana, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long’s assistant, in a match on next week’s show. WWE’s Board of Directors announced Tuesday that Laurinaitis will be in charge of SmackDown next week, while Long will control Raw SuperShow.

— WWE is attempting to file a trademark for the term Kayfabe. It is for merchandise use as the organization released a line of T-shirts last week labeled Kayfabe Tees.

— SmackDown Superstar Justin Gabriel turns 31 years old Saturday.

— Rey Mysterio appears at Chicago World of Wheels at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center 9301 W Bryn Mawr Ave. Rosemont, Illinois on Saturday from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

    Does this mean the Diva’s can now Fight The Superstars…

    If so that would be awesome!!!

  • Bill E. Bob

    So does that mean that we won’t be able to use the term “kayfabe” anymore, as in “Edge and Christian are kayfabe brothers”?

  • Albert

    I really want to watch that!! it will help get Aksana over a bit more 🙂 i like her so yea and hope to see her spinebuster Kane

  • Jon

    Aksaka will embrace the hate.

    The best match in wwe as a overall match it had the star power the stage it was done on the audience anticipation the quality of promos and story telling building towards it is wrestlemania X7 Austin vs Rock but as we all witnessed it had an ending we would rather forget let’s just all hope Mania 28 Cena vs Rock ends with a memory will all would want remember now all you don’t hate I’m not trying compare Cena to Austin I’m simply stating they are both built up very well and to note how great would it of been if Austin and Rock had been given a year also to build

  • Will Henderson

    looks like it’s time for pro wrestling insiders to create new terms or generic terms for wrestling.

  • Jimbo

    MOTY candidate. WWE will totally not be wasting our time with a match like that. Thank you WWE for knowing your fans so well.

  • xXx

    Aksana will beat Kane via botch

  • Lil Drew

    For some reason I see Orton running down and attacking Kane, since Kane attacked him on Smackdown

  • Sean Mooney

    I am not sure how they’ll turn this into something entertaining, but I hope they find a way. It sounds extremely stupid though.

  • Stargrave

    Sorry, I already filed a trademark for the terms. WWE is in Violation.

  • Bill

    Kane vs. Aksana?!? We want Ryder!!!

  • Splash

    Aksana surprises Kane with a Hurricanrana once the opening bell rings, she follows it up with an impact DDT and makes Kane tap with an Ultimo Dragon sleep hold. Match length one minute. and since it’s on Smackdown 25% of the WWE audience actually watched it.
