Spoiler Notes On TNA Hard Justice: Now an ECW PPV

According to the spoilers that leaked from Tuesday Night’s TNA Impact Tapings, the show ends with Dixie Carter agreeing to give August 8th Hard Justice PPV over to ECW and essentially making it a carbon copy of the 2005 One Night Stand with ECW in action. Dreamer did another lame promo where he cried and stated that in 2005, the story was supposed to end until 2006 when Vince McMahon ruined it. Carter agreed and said the former ECW talents would have full control of the PPV and promised the fans to make ECW what it should be, not what Vince wanted.

Can anybody tell these people its 2010? How many ECW reunion shows have there been? I can count at least 7 or 8.

NOBODY.

CARES.

Tuesday Pro Wrestling News Update: Undertaker, Tara, TNA Buyrate Fail + Spoilers, Heyman, Jim Ross, Danielson/ROH



– WWE is hoping Undertaker will be ready by Summerslam and will be giving it a go very soon.


– The current plan is to have Wade Barrett involved in the Raw Money In The Bank in some capacity.


– According to Dave Meltzer from the Observer, it is highly possible that TNA’s buyrates for the past two PPVs have dropped below 10,000. This has led many people behind the scenes to believe TNA will be finished by the end of 2010. We will keep you updated.


– Yup, Tara was the woman on the bicycle. She is working you if you think otherwise.


– The plan right now is to do a multi-person match to headline Hard Justice featuring the ECW Invaders vs. TNA, mirroring what WWE did with the “Inaugural Brawl” during the WCW Invasion (and ECW Invasion #2) in 2001 (9 years ago). Russo wants to do a faction wars angle with multiple groups involved. Keep in mind, he did this in 1997 with Los Boricuas, The Nation, the DOA, etc and that worked out well, didn’t it?


– Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff are both under contract until October but have seemingly shown zero interest in anything TNA-related anymore. Word going around is that both Hogan and Bischoff did not appear at the tapings to send a message to Dixie about the rumors of the involvement of Paul Heyman. Mike Johnson from PWInsider has speculated that they are close to a deal but not letting on anything further. I personally disagree and am sticking to my story that Heyman is not interested.


– For those who have asked – YES – Dixie Carter DID indeed have a meeting with TNA talents telling them to “improve their work”. Hilarious. I could sit here and pick apart everything wrong with this, but then we’d have a 5 paragraph essay about how much of an utter troglodyte she is. Figure it out for yourself.


– Word has been going around about Bryan Danielson being booked in Ring of Honor. If he does come in, it will likely be for a limited set of appearances and he will likely NOT be signed to a deal. I’ll keep you posted.


– *SIGH* WWE removed Jim Ross from the WWE Opening Montage as punishment for appearing at UFC 116. What a bunch of assholes those people are. And they wonder why UFC is destroying them in everything.

No Surprise: TNA continues to be run by morons

For the second month in a row, TNA has promised a big surprise on Pay Per View and delivered… nothing. What’s even more retarded than just that is the fact that TNA informed management and the workers, THEIR OWN WORKERS, that Paul Heyman was a sure thing and was coming in. And yet again – they shot themselves.

I’m not exactly sure why anybody would believe that Heyman was really coming in. He has stated in numerous interviews, including one six days ago on the Wrestling Observer, that he was not coming in because he was offered a low-ball deal with not enough power or comfort. Reports came earlier today that Heyman was in New York, and yet TNA continued to inform its talent that he was coming. Flying from New York to Florida isn’t a 30 minute flight people. So rather than just stop with the big announcement bullshit, they continue to do this, it doesn’t mean a damn thing

WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU DO THAT!?

This is a time where TNA is being heavily tested and people are expecting change. After the numerous failed experiments (Reaction, Monday Nights, Hulk Hogan, etc), fans, journalists, and perhaps even Spike TV have begun to realize that the ship has sailed on TNA. While moving back to Thursdays was a very good move for business, there is no denying that many of TNA’s most hardcore supporters saw that as a step back, specially after the faux-bravado that Hulk Hogan and crew showed (“we’re getting a 3.0 brother”). Quite frankly, I went from loving the company years ago, to hoping that it would improve, to waiting for a change, to wanting them to just be wiped off the face of the Earth.

It is insulting to me that despite TNA being under the microscope, that they continue to bullshit their own workers. WHY WOULD YOU SAY SOMEBODY WAS IN YOUR COMPANY IF IT WASN’T A SURE THING? I mean honestly folks, how would you feel if your company offered you change and you were under the impression that it was coming only to find out that not only the person who is making the change isn’t signed to a deal, but didn’t even verbally agree. HEYMAN SAID NO!

Every month I get more and more angry at this company and want them to die more and more. It’s not the workers, it’s the pieces of shit running the thing. It’s Dixie, who comes off like a “wholesome mother and businesswoman” when in real life she is a dumb douchebag who has no idea what he is doing, Vince Russo who, is a nice guy, but can’t write TV, Terry Taylor, a mid-card wrestler at best who’s career was about as successful as New Coke, and anybody else who thinks this is a good idea.

Sure, maybe I went too far, but I’m just sick of it. Thank God I did not order the PPV and if you did, I feel sorry for you. Don’t give them a penny again.

Big week in the Superfriends Universe – stay tuned.



James Toney: The Funniest Interview in a Long Time

Ariel Helwani (who’s getting way too much pub but DAMN is it ever deserved) recently caught up with charismatic pro boxer James Toney, who is scheduled to face Randy “The Natural” at UFC 118 in late August. Toney’s confidence was mind-blowing and this turned into one of the funniest interviews ever. This is how you cut a money promo.
