TNA Television Deal Update

As of right now, it looks that TNA and Spike TV will part ways when their current deal expires. However, TNA is in talks right now with the Velocity Network and WGN America , along with two other networks, one of which is said to be a stronger network than Spike but without the matching demographics.

How is Sheamus Perceived Within the WWE?

Sheamus, who wants to turn heel, does not appear to be a priority for the top brass of the WWE. Also, there is a contempt for him among some of his peers due to how he works inside the ring.

NXT Wrestler's In Ring Career Over?

Corey Graves is still employed by the WWE and currently working at the Performance Center. However, due to multiple concussions, his in-ring career may be over as he is still not allowed to do any wrestling at the moment.

  1. Maybe Vince just hates that he lost legit fights to two small jobbers? He wasn't pleased when Batista lost a fight to Booker T and Book is a big dude that can handle himself. Losing to Yoshi Tatsu??? I'm surprised Sheamus isn't being packaged as the new Adorable Adrian Adonis.

  2. Or he could try to change the subject with humor when he knows he's wrong and won't admit it....ya know...like some folks.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Not doubting that. But watching it dead sober is another thing

    ReplyDelete
  4. I imagine the only guys who hate being face are those who are being booked like shit or are floundering in their role. Like Sheamus.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I for one like Big Show as a face more than a heel.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Eh, I enjoy your wild overreactions and wanted to share one with you. People don't like Raw? They must not enjoy life. I feel the same way about you not finding any kind of toilet humour ever, to be at all amusing.

    ReplyDelete
  7. If he starts working soft, this will be the great Irish potato famine of this century.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I've never been a fan of Sheamus. I didn't like his initial push as a heel and when he turned face I just wanted to see Mark Henry beat his ass. Didn't like when he won the Rumble over Jericho and obviously hated the 18 second victory. His biggest contribution to me is that the YES chants kept going after WrestleMania 28.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Context context context. A poop joke is just basically lame and silly in something unimportant like a forum comment, and incredibly lame, silly and inexcusably awful in a main event angle.

    I have an update for you: Stranger buys fun packs of cereal for office consumption.....and eats them in alphabetical order.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I enjoy big show in all his incarnations. I know the blog hates this man with a passion, however I find him to be a great hand to have and a spectacle in the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I can see it now... Sheamus starts feuding with Colin Cassady who insists that they have an 'ALL-SAWFT' match with no hard strikes allowed.


    Sheamus, Hornswoggle and Becky Lynch start to starve and ask NXT GM William Regal for assistance, but he's uncaring and soon Hornswoggle dies from starvation.


    But then in the following weeks Regal starts to get haunted by a mysterious ghostly leprechaun (tying in with the upcoming Leprechaun: Origins home release).


    COME ON WWE WRITERS, IT WRITES ITSELF.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Jericho losing that Rumble basically killed him forever as a draw.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ah so TNA has FOUR or more networks interested in Impact including a huge one. I thought they were going under? What about WWE buying the tape library?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Indeed, and, I would also argue that my joke is more about the state of WWE films. That a short film of Charles Wright taking a crap whilst making references to a 90s gimmick would be their best release to date. That's movie industry satire, I'll have you know!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't think the blog hates the Big Show. Big Show really is a legend and a huge part of multiple eras of wrestling. The majority of the blog (and I would venture to say fans in general) is that Big Show is a poor choice to push as a main eventer or elevate into main events at this point in his career. Those days have passed for him.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Stranger is wasting money on packaging of those individual fun packs. Dean Andrews is angered by the thought of the easily avoided extra waste if you'd just bought four regular packs and then just had a little from each.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have never seen the stage of "denial" hold on for so long. Time to move on to Anger or Bargaining!

    ReplyDelete
  19. My office is so boring right now that this sounds like a fun idea.

    ReplyDelete
  20. And it seems they have run out of ways to book him. I think it is just another downside of only having one major company... he has been around so long and done so much that they have just run out of ideas.

    Nothing he has done wrong, dude works hard, gets it and seems like a really nice guy... and I agree he is a great hand to have around to help young guys learn and to be used in matches where his presence benefits it...but how do you keep him fresh?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 11, 2014 at 8:50 AM

    Nobody tells Stranger his business. He lives in America.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think YOU are in a stage of denial. TNA is alive and kicking. Accept it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. WWE books and writes Sheamus like a complete goofy jackass chump and then wonder why he isn't over and want to give up on him.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know that you like to get your hand all coated in margarine and then slide it up your own ass, however that doesn't stop me in agreeing with you that he is quite the spectacle, and I for one have especially enjoyed his latter-day work. e.g. his 2013 Royal Rumble match three-way with Bryan and Henry I found quite underrated.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Turn him heel!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Why would WWE even want the tape library? Two Angle matches and Victory Road 11 for "The Self-Destruction of Jeff Hardy?"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Man, you're like a one-man metaphor for the useless of the Kyoto Protocol.


    I'm getting SO sick of telling everyone here that.

  29. I heard that he read an email that said that Kofi has some African/Jamaican in him.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sheamus just needs a cool 'inside' catchphrase, something like 'ah'll POTATO ye, mootherfella!'

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yep, I have often mentioned that they DO own the TNA library already. It's called "The 2006 to 2009 Smackdown library".

    ReplyDelete
  32. No one on the current WWE roster that is a major player has had significant bouts in TNA. Most of them are RoH guys.

    ReplyDelete
  33. No idea but a a good handful of you spent a day and a half discussing about a month and a half ago if WWE would buy the library.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Then why when I profess I'd enjoy seeing him in te main event do I get attacked with vitriolic slander, much like the person above who agrees with me? It's almost like you can't win for trying sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't mind at all that Cena and Sheamus are "goofy" during promos. As long as they back it up and are serious in the ring, which they always do.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Of course you don't mind.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Amazing Red: He was pretty cool for a while

    ReplyDelete
  50. Because this is a much more welcoming place for differing opinions. The IWC in general is rather rude towards those who's opinions don't fall in line with the overly vocal majority. It doesn't mean these opinions are everyone's, just that you get ridiculed and pushed out of "the club" for vocalizing those that aren't in line with the majority. Ya dig?

    ReplyDelete
  51. If he would have stuck with the character he had during the Mark Henry feud, that would have been great. We already have one toolbox douchebag. His name is John Cena, and we don't need a second one rolling around the midcard doing the same act.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm just freestylin but. . .


    Free $ for WWE - Turn Reigns heel, have him and Rollins team up and feud with Ambrose. This gives Reigns more time to marinate and do cool heel shit and also give Ambrose the against the odds, underdog vibe they desperately try to give Cena.

  57. Just like how you got pushed out of politics for impregnating your photographer.

    ReplyDelete
  58. In this analogy, though, the kicking is involuntary because they've been on life support for years. They're "kicking" inasmuch as someone is physically moving their legs for them until they get bored with it.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I was watching an episode of Prime Time the other night where Red Rooster was a guest and Heenan introduced the Brooklyn Brawler. Brawler hit Rooster and Monsoon with a chair then tossed Rooster into a a big metal cabinet. After that, he slammed him onto the cabinet crushing it. The following week Monsoon mentioned that Rooster needed a ton of stitches in his neck. Ladies and gentleman, the WWF in 1989, put over the Brooklyn Brawler as a huge mega heel better than they have done ANYONE in the last 2-3 current years.

  60. It was great but inconsequential. Unless you're specifically looking for it you can miss it and not miss anything in wrestling history.

    ReplyDelete
  61. You are FAIL at the use of irony. Like many other things.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Tell me I'm wrong, but the majority of your posts (and Vince's) aren't about the actual subject, but about how people disagree with your opinion on the subject.


    So who is really creating the drama about it? Again, not trying to argue, just seems that way.

  63. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 11, 2014 at 9:02 AM

    I eat my cereal in alphabetical order. Do you think I struggled with this?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Um no, cause he was still a 99% jobber instead of a 100% jobber. I think I can sum up 1 or 2 WWE heels from 2011 to 2014 that were a tad more effective.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Still not this politician you've accused me of being, nor am I the guy who pretends to talk to the dead.

    ReplyDelete
  66. As much as I can't stand the character, this is one of the reasons that I deeply respect John Cena the man. He's such a consummate professional that a fan could probably smack him in the face with a wet, hot turd and he would smile, wipe away the shit smear, and give the guy a Cenation salute. He does not bitch about being a face, he doesn't give management any flack, and I have yet to hear about him being unprofessional in the ring or hard to work with, or a prima donna backstage or anything like that.

  73. Besides Mark Henry when he beat up Cena as well as his feud with Orton and Bray Wyatt's first couple of months, I don't think you can.

  75. Exactly.The day they sign and announce "WE HAVE A NEW DEAL!", I'll fully admit they are not going to die. Until then, "TNA GONNA DIE SOON!":


    And as I mentioned yesterday, some/most of the wrestlers are worth saving, but the name/company is NOT. Not with all they've managed to fuck up over the years.

    Hey, Spud! How you doing?

    ReplyDelete
  77. As a member of the IWC, I personally hate being told that I'm a part of the IWC, a sinister majority who are out to get you.


    It makes you look damn arrogant. I have different opinions to stuff all the time. Sometimes they're controversial. If that's the case, I'd best expect to argue my side, especially against people who are likely bored at work and looking for some shits and giggles.


    Going INTO that with the attitude of "Now, you guys are all against me, but please be fair", suggests a solidity and a consensus that just doesn't exist. But you're going to MAKE it exist by saying "Everyone's against me".


    This would be okay if you were stating opinions most of the time. But the vast majority of your posts (I'm going to do a Vince Jordan and say it's 99%) seem to be saying "Awww, why are you guys all against me? No fair, come on guys, awww, geeee!"


    Which personally makes me want to slap you hard for being a little bitch. And for rudely and arrogantly insinuating that people you don't know are part of an organised thought syndicate against you.


    Nobody here has anywhere near that much time and effort to care enough about you.

    ReplyDelete
  85. It really did. I liked the idea getting thrown out at the time by having Jericho win by doing nothing. He had been coming out to the ring and doing the smiling or crying without saying a word. They should have had him do it until the Rumble and win.
    He had a history of doing that by winning the belt at Unforgiven 08 and then went on to have the MOTY with Michaels the next month.

    "The IWC in general is rather rude towards those who's opinions don't fall in line with the overly vocal majority. It doesn't mean these opinions are everyone's, just that you get ridiculed and pushed out of "the club""

  95. Man, people really did convince themselves that this would happen back then, eh? I remember the months long outrage when they THOUGHT Sheamus was a last minute booking change because Jericho was too obvious, only to find out that Sheamus was the plan all along. Ah, memories.

    Brock HAS been dominant since WM 30, but we all know he's one Cena loss away from returning to "Meh"-dom. And before WM30, he seemed to be settling in there quite well.

  108. 1) This is called foreshadowing. Something tells me Ambrose will make an appearance at Night of Champions. Call me crazy.

    2) Impact to VH1. I'm calling it right now.

  113. You're a sensitive guy, huh? That's okay, but I just think it's silly to be so sensitive about an article only 40 people will read on a wrestling website. I don't want you to snap over something so silly like me suggesting you not shit all over something as silly as a silly headline.



    Since you assumed I was being internet snarky, I'll just assume you were fishing for compliments by being self-deprecating because assumptions are fun.

  114. Right, but I don't need to make that assumption. Because I read what you said. And there's not a different way to interpret it.
    I'm more than open to legitimate criticisms. When you have one, I'd be happy to discuss it, but I'm good either way.

    ReplyDelete
  115. TL;DR version:
    This has gotten silly. I'm very open to criticism, but your original comment came off as straight-up snarky rather than actual, y'know, criticism. I'm not upset about it, and I can't imagine you are either, so...moving on. Glad you liked the article.
