Who Was Behind Lana's Babyface Turn?
Vince McMahon was the driving force behind Lana's face turn, believing that she was "too hot and blonde to be a heel," which is why they put her with Dolph Ziggler.

I don't think there is any argument that Rock is the greatest choice to officiate a wedding. But which 3 wrestling personalities would you think would be the next best options?
- Macho Man - The guests wouldn't understand him, but he would raise his voice at just the right times
- Bobby Heenan - Just for the option to cut down every crazy member of the family
- Ric Flair - While he'd be looking WAY too closely at the bride, I think ultimately he'd do the right thing and go through with the ceremony.
Hear me out. Jane marries Billionaire Ted in 1991. The same year WCW became WCW, right? she divorces him in 2001, the same year WCW goes under. Coincidence?
THINK ABOUT IT
But who was she working for? Crockett, perhaps? Another jealous NWA honcho? JIM HERD?!?!? Let's not forget WCW also ran shows in N Korea. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!
How have we not seen this before? If I were a betting man, I'd even wager it was her own voice on those WWF skits in 96. That's probably when she recruited Razor and Diesel! Whoa, And that just came to me! IT GETS DEEPER AND DEEPER!!!!
THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!

But they'll still have international distribution deals that they need to fulfill, right?
So will they keep taping and airing TV for international markets and show Impact online like they did after they got the boot from FSR?
Or, if TNA really does go out of business, can the international TV networks sue them for not delivering a promised product?

Maybe this is already a known thing, but it seemed to me that the Sasha v Becky match was being called in large part by the ref, and presumably further called by Triple H into his earpiece. Is that what you think happened?
Either way, it seemed like he was communicating to them the next spot to go to and I never really saw Sasha or Becky calling them. It was a fantastic match, and I guess I never considered how hands on Triple H could be during a live match. It was cool. If true, anyhow.
Sidenote: my wife was watching for the first time and thought the ref was getting a little too grabby trying to break holds. Guess I never thought of that for men's matches.
Thought this might be a good discussion for the blog. With the news of DA (allegedly) canceling impact, there must be a dvd in the near future from WWE about this ala ECW and WCW, right?
Aside from the standard documentary , which matches would be included on the set? Aside from the Unbreakable three-way, and maybe a match from the first show, has TNA had any (allegedly) historic matches of any kind?
The SmarK Rant for WCW Monday Nitro – 07.08.96
I’m skipping the BATB redo because RAW is already getting added a rate where I’m falling behind anyway. I’m strongly considering just motoring through one show or the other to finish off 1996 rather than alternating, which would probably make me lean towards RAW because it’s faster.
Live from Orlando, FL, at the Disney Studios outdoors. Now THIS is exactly what RAW is lacking. The arena looks and feels like nothing else they had done to that point, like something FRESH.
Your hosts are Tony & Larry.
