Illness forces short Piper reign
By TIM BAINES - Ottawa Sun


The Legend Killer had the last laugh on The Legends.

But it wasn't supposed to happen this way.

Only excrutiating pain could make Rowdy Roddy Piper's tag-team title reign with Ric Flair so short.

What The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer says were thought to be bowel problems or kidney stones forced Piper to stand by while Flair lost the titles to Randy Orton and Edge on RAW Monday night in Manchester, England.

Piper, whose DVD Born to Controversy has just been released, had to return to the U.S. for surgery.

There was another title change on RAW. Jeff Hardy recaptured the intercontinental title from Johnny Nitro.

- Christopher Daniels is the new TNA X Division champ, beating AJ Styles and Chris Sabin on Impact. Speaking of Impact, Canadian Petey Williams stood up to LAX and defending the U.S. flag. Williams is a wonderful talent, who needs to get a bigger push from TNA. This should do it.

- Former TNA star Monty Brown has signed with WWE.

- Lashley has jumped from Smackdown! to ECW.

- And how about this for names: The James Gang is now the Voodoo Kin Mafia. Get it ... VKM ... uh, Vincent Kennedy McMahon.

- Here are the matches for tonight's TNA Genesis pay-per-view: Sting vs. Abyss; Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe; LAX vs. America's Most Wanted; Daniels vs. Sabin; Styles vs. Christian Cage; Ron Killings and Lance Hoyt vs. Austin Starr and Jody Shelley; Voodoo Kin Mafia vs. Kazarian, Bentley and Devine; The Robert Roode Open Challenge; and The Naturals vs. Sonjay Dutt and Jay Lethal.
