To TNA Management
you aren’t reading the Internet recaps of weekly iMPACT shows and monthly pay
per views, it would be a good time to start paying attention.
I’m not the only one doing a lot of complaining about Jones and the
Angle bunch. I go into great detail
when I recap a TNA show but it’s getting more and more difficult with more and
more b.s. to cover in each show. Two hours won’t help iMPACT if the show
doesn’t improve. That means less
crap, more actual wrestlers.
can find a timeline on the ownership of TNA here: http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/promotions/tna.html.
We now how Dixie Carter got her position with the company.
What It’s Worth
Borash interviewed Dixie Carter, current President of TNA Entertainment, on a
recent edition of TNA Today, TNA’s Internet Show. She promises fans longer matches when the show expands to two
hours. She also says that Bound For Glory is going to be TNA’s biggest pay per
view ever and discusses a new TNA game that is presently in development.
Low Down Dirty Rotten Christian Cage
is SUCH a great creep in front of the camera and now his wonderful work ethic
and reported “nice guy on the job” is blowing his image. We hear he stays
out of backstage politics, spends hours on his promos and is very well liked by
his peers. Source: www.lordsofpain.net.
His hard work shows up in what he does for the fans every week.
He is one of the guys you just love to hate.
you saw last week's iMPACT, you had to have noticed him. Judas Mesias is a
Puerto Rican wrestler who has previously wrestled under the name of Ricky
Banderas. He is 6’4”, 240 lb.
Judas Mesias’ hand debuted at No Surrender, Judas' entire body debuted at
iMPACT on September 13, 2007. Sorry female wrestling fans. I couldn’t find any personals on him but I tried!
all grew to love him as Rikishi, but unfortunately WWE owns the name.
We’ll take him as Junior Fatu or whatever name he wants to use.
The latest stats I could find for him: 6’3”, 510 lbs., but I thought
he looked lighter than that when we
first saw him September 13 on
iMPACT. He is a Samoan-American
wrestler, the brother of Umaga who currently with WWE (and recently suspended
for drug use), and is related to The Rock, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, Jimmy
Snuka, Jr. “Deuce” of Deuce & Domino, Rosey and the
Wild Samoans. Sorry girls. Junior Fatu is happily married with five children.
checked the TNA official website and found that Judas and Junior Fatu bios have
not yet been added to the TNA roster
Internet has been full of rumors for the last week that Leticia’s days with
TNA may be numbered. As everyone
knows, Leticia took time off from TNA to work on other projects and rumors are
that TNA loves her replacement. No
one with TNA has confirmed that Leticia will not return to TNA. In Leticia’s
absence, Crystal Loutham has been handling backstage interviews. I liked
Leticia, but Crystal has been doing a great job.

A few Bytes ago I was
looking for websites dedicated to ridding the sports world – and sports
entertainment world – of criminals. I
found the following site:
our readers might want to stop by and take a look.
Be forewarned. There is also a page for Stupid Fans.
You can find your
favorite…or not… Adam Pacman Jones along with a list of his off the field
activities. The players on this
site make the tantrum throwing Billy Martin look like a saint.
Aries aka Austin Starr
If you are missing Austin
in action, you can find him working with ROH and PWG. His official website www.austinaries.com
contains wrestling engagement dates, times and places. I like him not only for
his ring work, but he is a vegetarian! How
many of macho men do you think would admit to that?
FYI Austin does NOT have a MySpace page.
Anyone on MySpace claiming to be Austin Aries or Austin Starr is not the
Chris Benoit’s Diary
You can read about it here:
From the description of
Benoit’s actions, he was having memory problems and suffering from paranoia.
No one noticed he was suffering from depression, paranoia and memory loss?
I don't know why no one saw the signs, perhaps Chris really was that
private a person. If you or anyone you know is suffering from any of the
above signs or symptoms, get help. Don't wait until someone asks you if
you need help.
