Kevin Owens

- The first odds for WWE Hell in a Cell are now available. While the odds are generally their most accurate after the “smart money” is in, here’s a look at the initial favorites: Kevin Owens is favored, Roman Reigns is favored, Brian Kendrick is favored and Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson are favored. The odds for Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks and The New Day vs. Cesaro and Sheamus are currently a push. We’ll continue to track the odds and have complete live coverage tomorrow night right here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.

- There is a rumor circulating that Kevin Dunn does not like the accent of Becky Lynch. This prompted her to tweet the following: ”For those who didn't understand my accent what I said was, Smackdown. Alexa. Glasgow. Face. Slapped. Off. Her.”

- Sasha Banks doesn’t like the term “women’s wrestling” and believes once they get a pay-per-view main event the term will be dropped. Here’s what she told ESPN W:

”We say things like "women's wrestling" and "women's revolution." I hope one day it's not "a good women's match." I don't want the women's wrestling part. I just want to be equal to my partners. Why can't we be treated equal?

I think once we get a women's main event at a pay-per-view and you drop "women's wrestling," that will prove we are on the same level. A couple of years ago we were seen as the popcorn match or the bathroom break for the fans, and that's not the case anymore.

I want to be the main event at WrestleMania. I feel if that's not in my lifetime, I know that I'm helping build the foundation for the next generation of women to do that.”

- WWE Survivor Series will be a four hour broadcast. The Kickoff show will begin at 6 PM ET, with the main pay-per-view beginning at 7 PM ET and lasting until 11 PM ET. The new start time was announced by Ticketmaster as the show will feature Bill Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar. WWE Survivor Series 2016 will take place on Sunday, November 20, 2016 from the Air Canada cEntre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

- WWE will tape NXT with the live episode of Smackdown on Tuesday, November 22, 2016. Tickets are now available at this link as the combo taping will take place from the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

- Can TNA Wrestling be fixed? Here’s what Jim Ross stated in his latest blog:

"The answer to that question is, 'absolutely' but only if the brand is blown up, restarted, renamed, and by finding a more viable TV network/partner on which to air their show. Then TNA, or its successor, needs a small, tight knit, agenda-less team to plan long term, present a reality based, athletic product featuring as many qualified, younger and fresher talents as they can afford. The way this brand has been devalued and abused is regrettable which may be the understatement of the year.

"Make no mistake about it, TNA, under anew name and a fresh management approach, can regain some level of footing within the marketplace but new management, if that's the case, must have a realistic plan and the funds to reach their goals which will only come in time.”

- UFC president Dana White stated Friday night on FOX Sports 1 that UFC 205 has set a new gate record for Madison Square Garden. While he didn’t mention a specific record, the current record is held by Lennox Lewis vs. Evander Holyfield, a boxing match in 1999, that drew 21,284 fans with a fate of $13.5 million. The current UFC gate record is $12,075,000, set at UFC 129 on April 30, 2011 from Toronto.
