More On The Miz’s Recent WWE Heel Turn Inside Here
The Miz reportedly continued with some heel antics at WWE’s recent European tour. He started matches against Kofi Kingston as a babyface, shaking hands, and doing his usual spots. Miz then quickly changed his style, taking some cheap shots and playing up his heel character until the finish, when Kingston won with the Trouble in Paradise.
As noted yesterday here on the website, the reason Miz has been working as a heel during the overseas tour is because the company feels they are short on heel performers.
– As previously reported, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan did not appear at the WWE live event in Birmingham, England on Saturday.

The Sale Of TNA?
Partial Source: The Wrestling Observer
In response to online reports that the Carter family is looking to sell TNAWrestling, Janice Carter, mother of president Dixie Carter, issued a memo to employees on Nov. 1 squashing rumors of sale talks and that her family was fully committed to the organization. However, according to sources,she is flat out lying as multiple sources within the organization have stated that negotiations are currently being held for potential buyers. Furthermore, nearly everyone who has been speculated online, including musician and Resistance Pro Wrestling owner Billy Corgan, is not involved in the negotiations.
It is said that some WWE officials are following the story very closely, with one source quoted as saying “more so than people would ever imagine.” It is not because the sports-entertainment organization is interested in purchasing TNA, but rather because they are curious to know who desires to and what the status will be of some talents (specifically Hulk Hogan and Sting).
