Will not be posting till...

Heya everyone,

The charger-cord of my laptop broke down past sunday night, so I will not be able to update until at least the coming Monday. I will have to buy a new one and don't have long-term access to any computer until then.
I am writing you this message from work, but it speaks for itself that I can't give you guys complete updates from here. I hope you guys can forgive me for this.

Until next time,

Rest In Peace,

Luna's and Lance Cade's death cause of dead revealed, Several people on Matt Hardy's release.

Ok, ok, I know both Lance Cade and Luna both weren't TNA performers, but they were wrestlers nonetheless. Therefore, I am going to make a short notice about both their death causes.
Lance Cade died on August 13, 2010 from accidentally ingesting multiple drugs combined with the effects of a an enlarged heart, according to an autopsy report from a medical examiner in San Antonio, Texas.
Luna's cause of death is an accidental overdose of painkillers and anti-anxiety medication.

Now, on to real TNA news:
TNA Wrestling's decision to turn Jeff Hardy heel was made approximately seven weeks ago.
The creative department felt that it was adamant that the group Abyss had been referring to as "they" for the past several months include the TNA World Heavyweight Champion and it was determined that Hardy and Rob Van Dam were the prime options.

With Mr. Anderson off of the weekend house shows, as a wrestler, Tommy Dreamer will be replacing him. 
Mr. Anderson is suffering from an, to me, unknown injury he got this past week.

Following his tryout dark match against Stevie Richards at the recent iMPACT! tapings, CBS Big Brother star Jessie Godderz has reportedly been offered a TNA developmental deal, where he will train at the Team 3D Wrestling Academy until being called up to iMPACT!.
Godderz has been going by the name 'Mr. Pectacular' and has done some Indy work with WFX in Canada.

Booker T had an interview with someone I can't figure out where they're from, honestly.
Their names are Dave LaGreca and Doug Mortma.
If any of you guys know what station, or newspaper they're from, please let me know in a comment, so I can edit that in.
 On to the interview though,
Whether He Would return To TNA or WWE: "I'm a free agent, It's about making a phone call. I left on good terms. I'm pretty good friends with Terry Taylor. I left on good terms with Dixie Carter. But I don't want to get back on that WWE schedule; I would be willing to do commentary. I'd be willing to work behind the scenes (with WWE)."
Why He Went To TNA: "I went there to make those young guys a lot better, guys like A.J. (Styles), (Robert) Roode, Black Machismo, and the list goes on and on. The Main Event Mafia could still be going today. The wrestling business is all about the young guys coming up and taking those spots."
TNA Rehashing Old Angles: "I feel the past should be left in the past. You cannot recreate WCW. TNA was in a great position to move up to the next level."
Rumors of Him Leaving a Live Event and Not Putting Over Matt Morgan: "It was one live event, overseas, and there was not any security. The fans were throwing full cans of beer. I felt unsafe working in that environment. I did not want to put over Matt Morgan that night because I had never had a segment with Matt Morgan."

WWE champion Randy Orton wrote on Twitter that he checked out TNA iMPACT! this week for only the "second time ever" and shared his thoughts on the TNA product.
"Samoa Joe can move. Miss working with (Kurt) Angle and Jeff. Coulda done w/o the JWoW segment tho. I enjoyed the backstage stuff for the most part anyway. Something about the realness of the conversations between some of the talent was really well done."
When a fan seemed surprised that Orton was praising TNA, Orton responded:
"Who said that I do not like TNA? I surely didn't. Never approved of the 8(sic) sided ring tho. Competition is a good thing."
Orton put over TNA TV Champion AJ Styles:  
"Never met him. Can do some amazing things in the ring. IMO has alot to do with tna's early success."
He finished with some comments about Ken Anderson, who was outspoken against Orton following his WWE release:
"The only prob I ever had with Ken was him telling the Internet that I used my 'pull' to get him fired. Not tru, I have no pull."

The UK Sun has an interview up with "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero where he talks about pushing himself to the top of TNA, being a "TNA Original" as oppose to an ex-WWE star, and more. You can check that out at http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/wrestling/

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Jeff Hardy has an interview with the Daily Star that you can check out here. In it he takes WWE to task for how they handled his brother Matt: "I'm not going to give WWE their props for the way they've dealt with Matt. He is such a giving talent, ready to do anything for them, and he's been given the run-around. They've treated him like sh*t. I think if he came here, you would see the happiest, most dangerous and exciting Matt Hardy you've ever seen. I hope that they let him leave and he shows up here any day now."
Ross has commented on the situation, writing on Twitter: "WWE has come to terms on the release of Matt Hardy. Know no details just that fact. Good luck to Matt. Probably best 4 all involved." Over the past several weeks, Hardy had been documenting his interest in a WWE release in YouTube videos. Hardy is expected to join his brother Jeff in TNA Wrestling.
 And: you guys knew this would be coming....
Matt Hardy has posted a new YouTube video about his WWE release. Check it out here.
It is expected that he will make his TNA debut sooner rather than later, but that depends on if there is anything in his so said separation contract that says he can't for a period of time.

That's all for today's update, I hope you guys enjoyed, and forgive me for the amount of WWE updates in this thing, but you know, some were just "important" for TNA as well, and others just had to be noted.
If you don't agree with it, then, well, it just sucks to be you.

Anyway, until next time,

Rest In Peace,

Kevin Nash leaving TNA, Hardy Boys update.

Kevin Nash went on Twitter last night to say he's leaving TNA.
"4 days left and I'm done, hope you that enjoyed me and are left happy. I always did my best with a beaten body. thanks and goodbye," Nash said at 3 AM on the 9th of October.
Nash is scheduled for Bound For Glory this Sunday and the "four days" could mean he'll be at iMPACT!.
He also said he's not going to WWE.
"Time to be a husband and dad this part of my life is over. If I'm worth nothing than I need to stay at home. Thanks TNA 4 letting me go," Nash said.

SLAM! Wrestling recently conducted an interview with TNA Women's Knockout Champion Angelina Love, who discussed numerous topics including how much longer she plans to continue wrestling, her character becoming fan friendly, and the numerous people impersonating online.
When asked about the recently reunited pairing of she and Velvet Sky, she noted her reservations of the group becoming fan-friendly.
"It's been different working as a babyface," Love said of the change. "I was very skeptical at first, because it's so easy to do that character as a heel. But the fans really accepted it, and they've been really happy about it, especially to have us going against Madison."
While Love is very healthy, she doesn't foresee herself "wrestling forever." She noted to SLAM! when her current TNA contract expires.
"I know that I'm not going to be able to wrestle forever, that my body will one day not let me continue to do it," she said. "But, my body is still moving, I'm not burned out on travel, and I still love it, it's still fun. So I definitely want to keep doing it.
"(My current contract goes) until the end of 2012, so I definitely want to be doing that," she said about her long-term plans. "Eventually, I definitely want to get into acting. I feel that I speak well, and I can play a good character."

The founding member of The Beautiful People also took the opportunity to clear up her status online as there are numerous people posing as her across various social networking websites.
"I want my fans to know this. I do not have FormSpring, I do not have Beebo, I do not have Twitter, there is someone who is posing as me on Twitter. I have a Facebook page," she continued, "but it's just for friends and family. The posers are ridiculous. I've actually written some of them, telling them, 'You suck, get a life, and stop imitating me.' Then," she laughed disbelievingly, "they get mad at me!"
"(For fans), I have a Myspace page, at myspace.com/angel_williams14, and my official fansite at angel-williams.net. I hope people check those out, because I do appreciate everyone's support."
The complete interview can be read here.

Former WWE talent Tammy Sytch (a/k/a Sunny) explained during an interview with Women's Wrestling Today that she loathes TNA Wrestling because when her longtime boyfriend died, Chris Candido, they refused to forward her his last paycheck (for the final shows he appeared, including the show he broke his ankle in, which led to the surgery in which he got an infection and ultimately died from) so she could pay off his outstanding bills.
"They refused, because we weren't legally married. So bills I had of his, in both our names, ended up being my sole responsibility. It was only a $1,500 check, but still. 
F*****g scumbags. 
They had Terry Taylor call me and tell me that. So he basically broke his ankle and died for free. They sent the check in his name, which I couldn't endorse and deposit. When I asked them to cut me a new check in my name, they said no."
It should also be noted that in 2008, TNA Wrestling's creative department contemplated a storyline where Kurt and Karen would split up and have new on-screen relationships. Sytch was the leading candidate for the woman to have a relationship with Kurt. However, a TNA wrestler with influence implored the company not to hire the former WWE Diva, feeling "it wouldn't work out." The idea was ultimately dropped.

TNA Wrestling has reportedly re-signed Team 3D � Brother Ray and Brother Devon � to new contracts. It is said that the duo agreed to new contracts with the organization shortly before their appearance on the recent Northeast house show loop.
There is strong talk of splitting the pair, with Devon working as a babyface, and Ray working as a heel. Should the change occur, both will become singles wrestlers.
Ray and Devon made their first television appearance in two months during Thursday's live iMPACT! broadcast, promising a major announcement for tonight's Bound for Glory pay-per-view.

According to TMZ, Jersey Shore's JWoWW is heading to TNA.
JWoWW, aka Jenni Farley, has signed to appear on Thursday's episode of iMPACT!. The show is taped tonight. She'll likely mix it up with Robbie and Cookie, known as "The Shore."
JWoWW will pull in $15,000 for the appearance, and she is negotiating for more appearances.

Hulk Hogan was moving around slowly last night at the Bound for Glory PPV, and was in some pain.
Overall it was said that he was moving around pretty well, and not as bad as they portrayed when he first appeared on camera last night.
When Hogan arrived at the PPV, he was sequestered in a room and stayed there until it was time for his appearance in the main event.

 Following Jeff Hardy's heel turn at the conclusion of TNA Bound For Glory, Jeff and his brother Matt went online and spoke about the surprise event. Jeff Hardy took a shot at WWE on Twitter last night after a fan called him out for turning heel Hardy wrote in reply to the fan: "would u admit it's stronger ThanThatWackAssNexusTeaseWithCena?
Matt Hardy posted a new video blog after TNA's Bound For Glory pay-per-view last night. Regarding his brother Jeff's heel turn, Matt said that's the reason he's been doing everything he's been doing lately and the reason he put WWE in his "rear-view mirror." Hardy said he's got to cross the line because family comes first and he refuses to abandon his brother. Matt said he heard the news about Jeff turning heel about seven or eight weeks ago. 

That's  it for today people! Hope you guys enjoyed the read.

Until next time,

Rest In Peace,

Special more or less weekly UFC Update.

On the request of a couple of people, I will update you guys about once a week about the news and gossip in and around the UFC. Please keep in mind, that by the time you read this, you may already have heard it from somewhere or someone else.
Now, with that out of the way, let the part for which you are all keeping up with this begin:

The UFC believes Mario Miranda can get back on the right track.
The Brazilian middleweight recently signed a new four-fight contract with the promotion and is aiming to return in the first quarter of 2011, his co-manager, Shy Sadis, told MMAjunkie.com.

Strikeforce women's welterweight champion Sarah Kaufman cuts around 12 pounds to make the 135-pound limit required to defend her belt.
Her next opponent, Marloes Coenen, likely will have a much tougher road to the scale since she's fought the bulk of her MMA career at 145 pounds.

As expected, former welterweight Dustin Hazelett is dropping to 155 pounds to fight Mark Bocek at December's UFC 124 event.

Joseph Benavidez has replaced an injured Brian Bowles and meets fellow bantamweight Wagnney Fabiano next month at WEC 52. 

While word of Roger Gracie's next Strikeforce obligations hit the Web this morning, sources close to the fighter say the standout grappler's future is all but certain.
A rumored matchup between Gracie and the hard-hitting Mike Kyle is possible for "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu," though it could also take place in late January, according to sources inside.

 A cracked rib has sidelined Eric Lawson, who's been forced out of Saturday's preliminary-card bout with Ron Keslar at "Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II."

Former Sengoku featherweight champion Masanori Kanehara has been added to this month's World Victory Road Sengoku Raiden Championship 15 event.

This month's UFC 120 event will be the Ultimate Fighting Championship's most successful European show to date.
That's the word from UFC UK president Marshall Zelaznik, who today hosted a media conference call in anticipation of the Oct. 16 event.
UFC 120 takes place at The 02 in London, England, and airs via same-day delay on Spike TV. The show is expected to set European attendance and gate records.

That's all for the first UFC post, if you would like more info about any of this, or some other (older) stuff, visit  MMAJunkie.

Until next time,

Rest In Peace,

TNA Twitter stunt turns out bad, Brutus Beefcake turning TNA?

Local authorities ended up being called after a TNA twitter stunt on Sunday in Columbia, SC.
Jeremy Borash had announced via Twitter he would be at a location near their venue, with a mystery guest, giving out backstage passes . The guest was Shannon Moore. The announcement was re-tweeted by Moore & Jeff Hardy who combined have over 100,000 followers. As you can probably guess, there was a literal stampede of fans who rushed to the location, a parking lot in front of a Dollar General store.
After seeing the huge mob of people assembling, the manager of the store called authorities. As it turns out, the TNA crew had left before police arrived. Upon learning of the issue, TNA sent tickets & backstage passes to the store as a "make good" gesture.
Now, I can see how most of you would find this funny, but imagine yourself being that store owner. Imagine, not being TNA fan (probably), or at least not following Jeff's or Moore's Twitter, thus not knowing about this entire thing, and then just out of nowhere see a very big group of people rushing towards your store. Honestly? I'd shit bricks the size of pyramids.
Also, since we're sort of on the topic of Jeff Hardy already, his next court date is scheduled for Monday, 25th of October. TNA is holding iMPACT! TV tapings that day in Orlando, so it would have to be assumed he will miss that show and be available for the tapings the following day on October 26.

Kurt Angle was said to be upset over Abyss dropping him on his head during a recent iMPACT! match. It was considered a botched maneuver on Abyss' part.

TNA Knockout Chelsea has launched accounts on Facebook, Twitter, eBay, YouTube, as confirmed by her official website, AlisonSkipper.com.
Chelsea noted yesterday on Twitter that her purse was stolen.
"To whoever stole my purse: I hope you are happy, but remember: What goes around, comes around" is what she wrote.

The following Mick Foley book signings are scheduled for this week�

Monday, October 4
7:00pm EST to 9:00pm EST
Portsmouth Public Library
175 Parrott Avenue
Portsmouth, NH 03801

Tuesday, October 5
7:00pm EST to 9:00pm EST
Boston University Bookstore
660 Beacon Street
Boston, MA 02215

Wednesday, October 6
7:00pm EST to 9:00pm EST
11301 Rockville Pike
Kensington, MD 20895

If you happen to live close to any of these, and have time to actually go there, could anybody try to get me a picture of yourself, with him, and then send it to me? That would be awesome. Thanks in advance.

TNA Wrestling officials are hopeful that the disclosure of "They" at Bound for Glory will hook a number of fans to purchase the pay-per-view event. The widespread assumption amongst the TNA locker room is that "They" will be revealed as a combination of Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and possibly Jeff Jarrett.
Though D'Angelo Dinero cut what was described as a 'heelish promo' on Thursday's iMPACT!, many believe he, Sting and Kevin Nash will turn babyface once "They" is revealed.
Of course, nothing is confirmed and anything can change between now and TNA Bound for Glory.

Former WWE talent Ed Leslie (a/k/a Brutus Beefcake) said on the Miami sports talk radio show The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz Friday that he's joining Hulk Hogan in TNA Wrestling. He noted they're going to be "starting from scratch and going nWo style."

That's all for today folks, let me know if you want to know more on a certain subject. Also, let me know if you can get me an autograph :P

Until next time,

Rest In Peace,

Mick Foley Interview, And another one, along with more news.

Mick Foley did 2 interviews (that I know of) in the past couple of days. One is with former employer WWE, the other one was with the Huffington Post. Both are about several topics, although mainly about his new, and fourth book called Countdown to Lockdown (Image).
He donated his entire book advance for Countdown to Lockdown of $100,000 to charity. The two main charities donated to were RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) and ChildFund International. Foley is also working once a week for RAINN as a hotline volunteer.
Now, I don't want to see any obviously funny-meant comments about rape or abuse or anything. Keep it clean, if you want to talk about those things, you can go and find another spot for it. Thank you.

Hulk Hogan is due to undergo yet another surgical procedure on his back this Monday.
He was in the hospital yesterday undergoing x-rays and was originally scheduled for surgery today, however due to a religious holiday, his doctor postponed till Monday.
He also reached a settlement in his lawsuit against Post Foods. Hogan claimed in May of this year that Post was using his likeness in a commercial for Cocoa Pebbles Cereal. Hogan claimed a character named Hulk Boulder used his likeness. The terms of the settlement are confidential.

TNA star Kurt Angle is engaged.
Angle’s new fiancĂ© is 24-year-old model Giovanna Yannotti. Angle met Yannotti, who is 17 years younger than him, on the set of End Game and the couple dated for several months before becoming engaged.
News of Angle’s engagement comes in light of his ex-wife, Karen Angle, announcing her engagement to Jeff Jarrett.
Yannotti  has been at a lot of the TNA shows lately and believe it or not, her and Karen have been hanging out, even traveling together to shows together!
A picture of his fiancee can be found here.
His fiancee also announced on Twitter earlier this week, that Kurt and herself are expecting a child.

Hernandez has not been on hand for TNA events in recent months because he is on loan to the Mexican based AAA promotion due to a talent exchange. Management has lost faith in pushing him as a singles star because his ring work has not progressed at the rate they feel it should.

Regarding Sting’s future with TNA, his current deal expires at the end of this year and the situation is similar to what it is every year. Sting usually enters the year with the idea that it will be his last and then once the end of the year is coming up, Dixie Carter pushes him to re-sign for one more year.
It’s said that Sting has never been less interested than he is right now but it’s hard to turn down the good money and limited schedule that TNA offers him.
If Sting leaves TNA, he’s expected to be invited by WWE to the Hall of Fame next year in Atlanta. One source close to Sting says that a spot with WWE won’t be a factor at all in his decision to stay with TNA and he’s not someone who cares about a Hall of Fame.

Jeff Jarrett met with AAA officials in Mexico this past week to talk about doing more talent exchanges. TNA has offered Zorro a contract and he is expected to be in a new stable with Abyss. Dixie Carter apparently saw tapes of Zorro and liked him.
TNA is also interested in bringing in Jack Evans and Extreme Tiger. Jarrett is looking at bringing in more high-flying luchadores to TNA. AAA is looking to bring in The Motor City Machineguns.

That is all for my first post, I hope you guys enjoyed it. Keep in mind, I do not personally watch TNA, partially because it doesn't show on television here in Holland, and partially because, well, I don't know anybody who does, personally. I might start watching it though. We'll see.

Until next time,

Rest In Peace,


Wrestling Interesting TNA Version

Well, on request, here it is.
Wrestling Interesting, TNA Edition. Where you get your updates on, obviously, Wrestling from TNA.
I will be placing a first update later today, probably in about an hour or 2.
