Tomko in Japan
Tomko and Giant Bernard,

Dark Angel a No Go
TNA has confirmed they
passed on getting Sarah Stock aka Dark Angel for the newly formed women’s
division. I found some information on her wrestling in Mexico, but lost the

a deal with TNA. We will get to see her in action on the iMPACT before Bound for
Last week’s iMPACT did a
0.91 cable rating even lower than the week before. Source: www.angrymarks.com.
Just as we thought iMPACT would beat out the ECW/WWE show, they surprised us.
I thought last week’s show was worth watching but I didn’t read all
of the spoilers that showed up before the show actually aired. Most wrestling
news websites are carrying the spoilers that cover the first two-hour iMPACT
tapings. I am not sure what the purpose of the spoilers are but I wonder if they
take a toll on actual ratings.
TNA got four hours on Spike
TV since they will be replaying Thursday night’s iMPACT on Saturday night.

It appears Samoa Joe and Chris Sabin were both booked to work PCW
matches. Sabin did his gig without
a hitch but it appears Joe thought he was a little too good for the promotion
and the competition. The promoter
praises Chris Sabin for his work but let’s Joe have it and then some.

Duluth, GA. Among those appearing were The Steiner Brothers, AJ Styles,

Y2J Goes To WWE
It appears to be official.
Chris Jericho has chosen to return to WWE versus coming over to TNA.
Last Week’s iMPACT
I just read a review last
week’s iMPACT and am miffed that all the action with Judas Mesias, Sting,
Rhino, Kurt Angle and Abyss took place AFTER the cameras went off and those of
us at home missed the good stuff. C’mon
TNA, it’s not like I can hop on a plane and fly to Florida every week to see
the matches. No fair!
Gerweck’s Latest Poll
One of our favorite sites, www.gerweck.net.,
ran a poll asking fans if Paul Heyman should go to TNA now that he is officially
out of WWE. With 1,939 votes in,
the response was 65% YES and 35% NO.
We hear through the
grapevine that Mr. Heyman is doing is best to stay away from wrestling these
days and has been concentrating on writing in a non wrestling venue.

Chance Prophet, NWA
Since this site isn’t
carrying a separate Indy news report, we wanted to pass this along.
Chance Prophet suffered an in ring accident that resulted in major
surgery, including 8 screws and a steel plate in his left leg.
He didn’t have health insurance and the total cost was over $10,000.00. He is auctioning off personal items on eBay, all wrestling
related, in an attempt to pay off some medical bills. You can see the story
Best wishes to Chance for a speedy recovery.
We Don’t Have A
Separate Ring of Honor News Section
So we are including this
bit in TNA’s News Bytes. Ring of Honor’s “Driven” pay per view was
scheduled to be on demand cable channels this weekend. Prior to the airing of
Driven, the owner of ROH sat down and did an interview with Sports Radio 1130
WDFN. You can find out more about
that interview here: http://www.wdfn.com/pages/wrestling.html.
The ROH pay per view is
going for $10.00 and we read it is well worth the investment – and NO, I did
not read any spoilers! Jimmy Rave
is listed as a competitor, along with Roderick Strong, and Matt Sydal.
Speaking of ROH wrestling,
there will be an ROH show in Boston, MA on October 5 and in Edison, NJ on
October 6. You can see the lineup

Brian “Crush” Adams
Adams died from a multiple
drug overdose. It is reported he
had an opiate-based painkiller in his system as well as muscle relaxants,
another drug cocktail. As far as we
could ascertain, all of the drugs were prescription drugs.
Injuries Reported in
TNA News: We know that
Judas Mesias took a nasty fall after leaping from a ladder and missing his mark
on September 16 at a AAA event in Mexico. We
still have no news of his return to TNA. The reports indicate Mesias is
suffering from sciatica.
Sean Waltman, formerly of
WWF/WWE fame is wrestling in Mexico these days. It is reported that he is suffering from sciatica as well due
to an injury in the ring. Waltman and Mesias were scheduled to be a in Bull
Terrier Match against Juventud Guerrero and Zorro. No word yet on whether that match took place. From what we
can gather, a Bull Terrier Match is a match involving chains.
Gran Apache, another
Mexican wrestler, is suffering from sciatica due to an injury and reports are he
is unable to walk at this time. Source: www.ewrestlingnews.com.
This week, wrestler Mistico
leaped to execute a flying head scissors, but his opponent slipped and Mistico
landed on his head. Last reports
indicate he suffered from a concussion, but no further damage was found. No word
on how long he will be out of action. Source: www.wrestleview.com.
