Zone last Thursday to attack The Monster Abyss and defend Father James Mitchell

Cibernetico was rushed to the hospital after the Guerra de Titanes show in
Ciudad Madero on December 4, 2007, after
being put through a flaming table by El Mesias (TNA’s Judas Mesias). 30% of
Ciber’s back was burnt and that he will be in the hospital till at least
Wednesday. The doctors are telling him that he needs to be out of action for 4-6
weeks to fully heal.
This might explain why Judas Mesias is back for the next several weeks and
scheduled to work the January TNA pay per view…Cibernetico is the main
antagonist for El Mesias. If Mesias is still holding the AAA Heavyweight
Championship title, Cibernetico was to be next in line for a title shot. This
site wishes Cibernetico the best and hope he heals quickly.
not certain that this title isn’t jinxed. El Mesias suffered a severe injury
in September of this year defending his title against Chessman. He was out of
action for several months. He’s getting back into action and now Cibernetico
is out for a couple of months…

new rumor is circulating that Sting has signed an extension to his current
contract and will work through 2008 with TNA. Sting, now 49, will have a reduced
schedule which means no house shows unless he wants to, pay per views and some
roster on TNA’s official website lists the following wrestlers
since our last listing of wrestlers on this site as of November 21, 2007
Angel Christopher Daniels
The Truth Killings
the rumors we have been hearing are true, Senshi will be leaving after the next
pay per view and Team 3D will be leaving by February of 2008.
wrestlers were never listed on the official TNA roster
Hall – never listed on roster
Rave – never listed on roster

are no plans for Jeff Jarrett to return on television as a performer at least
for a few months. He is going to return when the time is right, which is not
right now. Source: ProWrestlingFans.
Have GOT To Be Kidding Me!
Rave has not signed a TNA contract. Apparently his lack on his push is a result
of not listening to encouragement from Vince Russo to improve his physique.
TNA fans who have never seen Jimmy Rave in action – and if you have only seen
him on TNA, you have NOT seen him in action – I suggest you drop by the Ring
of Honor website: http://www.rohwrestling.com
and check out a few of the DVD’s with Jimmy Rave performances. Russo wants WWE
physique? Then go back to WWE and
let the talent you leave sitting on the sidelines get back in the game!
“The Truth” Killings requested and received his release from TNA.. Rumor has
it Killings will be working for AAA in Mexico.
Killings profile has already been removed from the TNA roster page. He
had not been in the ring since he partnered with Austin Creed to form the tag
team Truth and Consequences. He posted the news on his MySpace page, www.myspace.com/ronkillings1:
"The Truth" Killings and TNA Wrestling have come to a mutual agreement
on his release. Killings wishes TNA Wrestling the best. Killings is looking
forward to continue his wrestling career and looking to go back to his original
requested and received his release as well.
His final appearance should be at the January 2008 pay per view. Rumor
has Senshi will be working for NOAH and Indy fans know he works for several Indy
organizations on the East coast. Senshi has worked in Mexico for AAA before but
no word yet on whether or not he has been offered any work there.
now there is no talk backstage in TNA about Junior Fatu. Therefore it is highly
unlikely he will return, which has been a call made 100% by Jeff Jarrett. The
feeling backstage is that Fatu came in like he was a big star and above everyone
else, therefore rubbing everyone the wrong way. Source:ProWrestlingFans.
He or Isn’t He
those have asked, the recent “firing” Christopher Daniels from TNA is just
part of a storyline as he has not actually been released from the company. I
have been absolutely amazed at the amount of people that do not believe that it
is a storyline. Source: www.rajah.com

then leave the company in late January or early February. We hear they want to
return to McMahon land. Source: www.gerweck.net

is talk of splitting up Lance Hoyt and Christy Hemme in the ring. Source:
Gerweck.net We hear they were dating and split in real life. There is some
concern about whether or not Jimmy Rave will be in TNA at all and what will
happen with Lance if the current threesome is no longer together.
Sapp has been in talks with both TNA and WWE. Hustle has announced that Sapp
will team up with Giant Silva and Scott Norton against RG, Monster Bono, and
Giant Voba in the main event of the promotion's Korakuen Hall show on Christmas
has also been announced that Sapp will face Bobby Ologun on 12/31 for K-1.
least one source is reporting that Scott Hall missed TNA’s Turning Point
pay-per-view last weekend due to depression. Hall told TNA officials that he
would be unable to work the event due to food poisoning. Whatever his reason was
for not making the event, there are no plans going forward in TNA for Scott
Hall. Source: www.prowrestlingfans.com
sources indicate that Hall’s depression was because he saw his children very
little or not at all. We understand
at one point his ex was concerned about his addictions and didn’t want him
around the children.
TNAWrestlingNews.com website is reporting that Scott Hall was scheduled to be on
the Insane Clown Posse's radio show called "The Main Event" earlier
this week but no showed. The 'Insane Clown Posse' noted on their show that the
reason Hall didn't show up to TNA's Turning Point was because of a " very
private family problem". Hall's actual excuse for TNA was that he was
suffering from food poisoning but others in TNA believe he was depressed over
not being able to see his kids as much as he'd like to. There were a number of
issues and nobody really knows what happened because well, it's Scott Hall. At
this time he's not expected back in TNA.
Hall was supposed to defend his Universal Heavyweight Title in Puerto Rico in
WWC over the weekend but he no showed, so they gave the championship belt to the
#1 contender. Unbelievable
On The Big TNA Meeting

12/3 meeting with talent to offer releases to anyone that wanted to leave the
company wasn’t a knee jerk reaction, and had been in the works for weeks.
Management was said to have been fed up with the undercard wrestlers
complaining, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The meeting started at
1:30PM in the bleachers at the iMPACT!
Zone, the day after the Turning Point PPV.

also apologized at the meeting, for reportedly an incident involving the
wrestler at a hotel on 12/1. TNA President Dixie Carter also addressed the

it. As previously reported, Senshi (an update on Senshi is forthcoming) and Ron
Killings requested and were granted their releases.

releases that day, we have heard of many wrestlers contacting other wrestling

The rumor mill claims Samoa Joe wanted Homicide to fill in for the missing Scott Hall at Turning Point but Jeff Jarrett nixed the idea because LAX wasn’t “over enough” to fill in a major spot. I have nothing against Showtime Eric Young, but come ON, Jeff. The reason LAX isn’t “over enough” is because TNA is holding them back. Have you ever seen Homicide and Hernandez in the ring?

rumors indicated Eric was given the spot because of his friendship with Vince

The Sci-Fi Network has changed their schedule for the final week of December. ECW on Sci-Fi was originally scheduled to air on Thursday, December 27th at 10 PM, putting it head-to-head once again with the second hour of TNA iMPACT which airs on Spike. With the change in the schedule, ECW will now air back in it regular time slot on Christmas night, Tuesday, December 25th at 10 PM. There was no reason as to why the network moved it, however, last time ECW went head-to-head with the second hour of TNA iMPACT, the show scored its lowest rating in history.

Statement on Jake Roberts - Body: To answer many of your questions, yes, the
rumors are true ... Jake Roberts entered rehab on Monday, Dec. 10th. Obviously,
Jake wanted his whereabouts kept private and confidential. We were shocked and
disturbed to see that this information was sadly and unfortunately leaked. With
that said, now all we ask is that you keep Jake Roberts in your thoughts and
prayers during this difficult time. Jake B (for Jake Roberts, Shannon, Viper
& Ben). Source: ProWrestlingFans. As far as the information being leaked, I
understand why Jake might feel his privacy was invaded. However, if the
information being made public makes another substance abuser decide if Jake can
do it, they can do it, then I’m all for it.

Douglas came out of hibernation at last Saturday's IWC show in Elizabeth, NJ. He
gave one of his patented, long-winded, "shoot-like" promos, this time
ripping on TNA, Dixie Carter and Vince McMahon. He also ripped on TNA
booker/writer Dutch Mantel, complaining about his comedy booking in front of the
crowd. He said the best idea Mantel could come up with was Eric Young wearing a
chicken suit. Douglas said 53 of his closest friends are now dead and that Vince
McMahon has done nothing to help things or make the schedule better. The Indy
promoter originally brought Douglas to the show to do angle with one of the
promotion's wrestlers. However, the Indy wrestler he was supposed to be feuding
with, Bubba the Bulldog, put Douglas over for all he'd done the business after
Douglas' promo. The whole locker room then came out and applauded Douglas. TNA
booked Samoa Joe & Eric Young on the same show, and TNA typically hates
stuff this, so it could affect future relations between them and the Indy
promotion. Source: Rajah
