Oh and the Knockouts pay was revealed (except Christy Hemme and Mickie James who get a fortune), it's apparently less than $600 (£400) per appearance and they dont cover expenses. No wonder all the Knockouts sell stuff on ebay to make ends meet!

I dont think that needs any comment tbh except it sums it all up.


we've all said it foe ages on here, the company have gone down the completely wrong road, and paid for it, I give it 18 months before they fold their tents


Admittedly even before Hogan and Bischoff arrived TNA had an impressive ability to shoot themselves in the foot.
Shame because there's all sorts of talent in that company.

crimson had better not be out of the series. it would be so typical of tna to push someone like that and ruin it at the last minute though...

He is though, seriously what makes him exciting to watch ?

He does nothing that looks impactful, his moves are dull, as are his promos, the guy is a bland sandwich, his cars are better to look at than he is

what is honestly the point in Robbie E? If they're trying to re-gen the X division how about someone with talent (i.e. Jack Evans.) If the X division needs comic relief bring back Shark Boy at least

Give him credit, Robbie E plays his character perfectly and he's not the worst wrestler I've ever seen. But he's mixing with highflyers and the result is just jarring.

cookie is gone, so its possible robbie could be on his way as well.

also, james storm is injured, though its unclear whether he'll be taking time off yet
"Confirmed today that the cowboy has a partial separation in my shoulder which occured during the M.A match 2 weeks ago. Been working through the pain hoping it would just go away but just to much to bear. Have to take it easy or could be out 4-6 weeks. Damn my luck."

Just watched Smackdown, pretty good show. Some really good matches. I'm so glad they've finally got it right for Mizark. They've tried time and time again but this time i can believe he is a big ol' mean bastard! Plus he seems to be improving as the weeks go on for me, I've always had a soft spot for Henry, glad he's getting his shot and is actually getting over this time!

I can not STAND the lighting for the Sin Cara matches! Why? What purpose does it even serve!?!?!?

even the wrestlers hate the lighting, they say they can't see what they are doing with it, which is why they have so many botched moves when they are in the ring with whoever is playing him that week :lol:

On a serious note, it's not his fault nobody is able to do his moves, why should he dumb down because they can't keep up with him.I really feel sorry for the guy losing his job and his gimmick :(
