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.

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,
