Rats leaving the sinking ship

James Storm

Austin Aries
Low-Ki
Sam Shaw
Gunner (...)

Probably forgot someone (there's also rumours about Angle and Lashley...)

I've never experienced so many wrestlers leaving a company in such a short period of time (AWA in 1990?)

Does this bode well for TNA?

​I'm pretty sure everything is fine.  This sort of thing happens all the time with well-organized and financially solvent companies.  ​

  3. I've had posting priviledges for a couple years, I just hardly ever use them. The rare times now I have a chance to write something it's for P2B now and just gets cross-posted here but even that's been forever.

  4. Even Kevin Bacon from Animal House can no longer defend this company.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yeah but Jeff Jarrett is back!

    ReplyDelete
  6. And, he's got a new hat!

    ReplyDelete
  7. The only reason I have them is a couple years ago I did an alternate-style Raw review for a couple months. Couldn't keep doing them weekly, was up way too late on Mondays.

    I figured as much, it was just weird to see a new name up there.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I think this is the second time I've ever used them not posting something I wrote.

  10. TNA needs to add someone onto their roster to bring in more viewers! Someone the majority of wrestling fans would absolutely tune in every week to watch (even in a non-wrestling role). Someone like...


    The Rock
    Daniel Bryan
    The Undertaker
    Bully Ray

  11. So I saw Jurassic World, that was fun as hell. I was giddy as the kids walking out who were yelling "That was so cool, I wanna see it again!"

    And I marked out for Lauren Lapkus, she's awesome.

  12. Cena vs Orton,one more timeJune 28, 2015 at 11:08 AM

    "According to f4wonline.com, there is a lot of skepticism in the TNA locker room about the recent talent releases. TNA has kept the talent in the dark in the past regarding the company’s creative plans, and some believe that they are being kayfabed in regards a GFW invasion angle.

    – The TNA locker room is also said to be mentally burned out due to the recent string of TV tapings. Many are not looking forward to the July stretch of tapings, which are scheduled to last eight days.

    – There is also said to be heat between the talent and TNA management, due to management being perceived as phony. Over the last 18-months, Jeff Jarrett was buried and treated like public enemy #1 and then brought back in as if nothing was wrong."



    This fucking company...

  13. Everything is fine! EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! EVERYTHING IS COOL WHEN YOURE PART OF A TEAM

  14. The Radicalz left WCW in 1 day.

  15. Who's this entering the Impact Zone?!?!

    Repo Depot.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ted 2 did not do very well with only $33 million. Ted got $54 million in the opening That's over $20 million less than the original.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'll be checking it out at 4:25est today. I expect about a 4/10.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Cena vs Orton,one more timeJune 28, 2015 at 11:14 AM

    Not surprising,given that no one was clamoring for a remake.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I couldn't believe Ted did that well... but then again, I'm not exactly part of the movie going public.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've never been to a newer digital 3D movie... do you have to wear the glasses?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Meh reviews and going against two tentpoles still doing huge business; they should be fortunate they got over $30m to start.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ted 1 made a ton of money at $218 million US and $550 million worldwide so of course a sequel will happen.

    ReplyDelete
  23. 8/10 for me. Not a great script but in terms of a Dino thrill ride, totally delivers.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I didn't realize that Low-Ki was in TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  25. "Thinking too much gives you wrinkles."

    ReplyDelete
  26. I hate watching movies in 3D. I've only ever seen 2: Despicable me and Lion King. That was only because my date wanted to see them in 3D.
    To me, it adds nothing to the experience and it is not worth the extra cost.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Mad Max was a 10/10 for me, how did you feel?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, it was bound to happen as he became an obnoxious TNA shill, but I saw he'd favourited a tweet of someone claiming Meltzer was trying to ruin TNA, and after tweeting him how disillusioned I was by this stuff, my childhood hero Billy Corgan blocked me on twitter. On my BIRTHDAY. TNA fan delusion is for kids, not respected artists. I AM DISILLUSIONED.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Of course the money dictate it would happen, but it was not a film that lent itself to people WANTING one. Unlike something like 21 Jump St which had a good natural sequel hook built it in its last line.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I loved that it realized it was an action movie about dinosaurs and didn't try to be anything but an action movie.

    ReplyDelete
  31. WWE needs to make Aries vs. Balor happen. That match has five stars written all over it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Mad Max was an 8 for me.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hello everybody! It's my birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I didn't realize Low-Ki was still wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Avatar is probably the only film I felt was worth the up charge, all the rest aren't worth it, especially since most aren't filmed with it in mind and are just converted in post-production

    ReplyDelete
  37. I may never get over having to call out my childhood hero Billy Corgan for his ridiculous anti-Meltzer shit, and then getting blocked by him on my birthday. Fucking hell.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Well it's like The Hangover and Transformers and Fast and Furious. Made a shit load of money so of course there would be a sequel. The movie was crap to ok but the sequel also made a ton of money and then another sequel.

    ReplyDelete
  39. RANI ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY RANI

    ReplyDelete
  40. Still haven't seen that movie and don't particular want to either.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't understand why people think Meltzer wants TNA out of business. More good, solid wrestling companies is good for the guy that makes his living writing about wrestling (and MMA).

    ReplyDelete
  42. But at least the latter two series are built for sequels. Comedies are harder to justify as such.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Going off Bonzai's idea: what is the best comedy sequel? My choice is Austin Powers 2.


    Worst comedy sequel? Hangover 3 or Caddyshack 2

    ReplyDelete
  44. Where the Hell is Aries going to go? He got all mad at WWE when they wanted him to compete on the old Tough Enough/NXT. Bryan ended up doing it, though. And Aries was fired from ROH...although that could have been Cornette....

    I would love to see Aries back in ROH. Or join the Bullet Club. Or become the third Time Spliiter.

    ReplyDelete
  45. ... and... do you have to wear the glasses?

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can't even watch 3D. Makes me go cross-eyed and blurry.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yep, it pretty much said "Here's a movie about dinosaurs on the loose at a theme park, who can ask for more?" The last half hour or so was mark out city

    ReplyDelete
  48. 22 Jump St? ...I'm having a hard time thinking of ones that were good.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Cry if you want to!

    ReplyDelete
  50. 10/10, that was joyous shit.

    ReplyDelete
  51. That's a good answer. I wouldn't be angry to a 23 Jump Street.

    ReplyDelete
  52. They going to make a third? What's the deal there?

    ReplyDelete
  53. A few of my older friends really like Christmas Vacation because they know several people that are like Clark in that movie.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Happy Born Day!

    ReplyDelete
  55. The Great Muppet Caper was pretty funny. I'd also say any of the Vacation sequels up through Christmas Vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Smith is working on Mallrats 2 at the moment, so I imagine Clerks 3 is on deck

    ReplyDelete
  57. Christmas and Vegas Vacation are pretty solid. I'm one of the few who probably likes Vegas more

    ReplyDelete
  58. Wow I'm surprised on Mallrats 2.

    ReplyDelete
  59. That really sucks. I'm so sorry. Corgan has a *really* delicate ego. Happy Birthday, though!

    ReplyDelete
  60. That's why Homer was smiling politely.

    ReplyDelete
  61. You're not missing much. It's absolutely gorgeous, but not very engaging.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Kinda weird to think Dean's the most successful radical from a steady job and alive perspective

    ReplyDelete
  63. Does Back to the Future 2 count as a comedy?


    As for worst, Caddyshack 2 definitely deserves mention. One off the top of my head is Miss Congeniality 2. I love the original and that sequel was the shits.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Magnus is also gone after the PPV.

    WWE used to have mass talent releases every year too. Have people already forgotten the unfolding sagas of "How is Funaki/JTG still employed"?

    What's interesting to me is how the business seems to be patterning itself after Japan where all these guys with enough name value see more upside in working as a free agent for the highest bidder than committing to one group for financial security.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Then BTTF 2 is the runaway winner. I love that movie.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Looked at who is going to be in "MallBrats." A majority of them have aged well. Ethan Suplee looks better today than he did 20 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I prefer the 3rd one over #2. it's like comparing a 3.5 star movie vs a 3 star movie.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Where the hell is Low Ki going to go? He is a master at bridge burning.

    ReplyDelete
  69. now that NXT is a real promotion, I could see HHH signing Aries with the understanding he has no hope in hell of making it to the big show.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Back home after a great wedding last night. Hungover but it was worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Seems the situation is basically you show up for the TV tapings once every 4-6 weeks, find out then what is happening creatively as it's being taped, then you go home and sit and wait for a check that's usually late. Even if ratings were good and the shows well received how could you ever really build a sense of pride or company loyalty? There's just no connection to it on a daily or even weekly basis.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Take the donkey show out of it and clerks 2 is a pretty solid "life sucks when you realize it's not what you want it to be" movie

    ReplyDelete
  73. GFW... he'll up-and-quit two months later for being disrespected.

    ReplyDelete
  74. We shall also accept BTTF in the best Action, Best Drama, Best Romance and Best Sci-Fi categories

    ReplyDelete
  75. Went to one yesterday as well... RAINED OUT!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I watched the 2nd one most growing up. Love all of them, but #2 has the softest spot for me.

    ReplyDelete
  77. It rained about midnight here. I was in the wedding and one of the bridesmaids got on the wrong bus from New York and it started late.

    ReplyDelete
  78. It's the same kind of close-minded thinking that dominates political discourse and news reporting, ie if you report hoesntly about police violence you HATE THE POLICE, if you report there is a race problem in this country you HATE MURICA.

    ReplyDelete
  79. How about that TNA PPV tonight? That company is fucked.

    ReplyDelete
  80. And that company was out of business a year later.

    ReplyDelete
  81. How many buys can they get? I can't imagine even 1000 at this point

    ReplyDelete
  82. I got sick watching Captain America in 3D. Came out of the theater nauseous, stopped at a place to put gas in my car, and as soon as the smell of gas hit me I puked in a garbage can. Haven't gone to a movie in 3D since. Avatar was the only movie I saw in 3D that was worth it. The few others I saw all gave me headaches.

    ReplyDelete
  83. RoH will probably get higher ratings than them in a few weeks. The gap is closer.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I know 3 is the better movie, but I have an irrational love of #2. I will drop everything to watch it.

    I'd rate #3 4 stars. #1 is a 5 star classic.

    ReplyDelete
  85. BTTF 2 was the worst of the series.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Sounds like an Alanis Morrissette song

    ReplyDelete
  87. Best wishes on the anniversary of your birth.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I swore it all off many years ago when I finally realized I just couldn't process it correctly. I'm certainly not the only one to be unable to do so. I did try it again last year when I went to see Gravity, and I did well enough due to most of the film being very easy on the eyes and mostly devoid of quick cuts and massive action sequences.

    ReplyDelete
  89. We can't be friends.

    ReplyDelete
  90. It's basically PWG at this point without the fun.

    ReplyDelete
  91. It's $50 to watch a DOA show since they already have taped past the PPV.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Mad Max was 10/10 for me, too. I have never seen such a good action movie.

    ReplyDelete
  93. On another note, I'm not saying the sequels were great, but I've always been fond enough of the Men in Black sequels. People acted like MIB II was some sort of wart on the ass of American cinema or something.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Men in Black 2 was fun. It's definitely not a bad movie by any stretch.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Aye. If you ever say anything someone doesn't want to hear and they don't know you, you are likely to get blocked right away. It was inevitable this was going to happen. I'm too trigger happy and he, sadly, is too much of a dick on twitter

    ReplyDelete
  96. That only really works for a selected group of people, and most of the big-time freelancers also had a main promotion where they wrestled 90% of the shows, and then also did show up on other promotions on occasion (Minoru Suzuki, Yoshihiro Takayama, Kensuke Sasaki, etc).

    ReplyDelete
  97. Just rent Dances with Wolves.

    ReplyDelete
  98. One of the best is 22 Jump Street.

    Worst could be the Meet The Parents sequels.

    ReplyDelete
  99. When you're too poor to afford Ramen, you are officially broke. It's going to SUCK living off protein shakes all week.

  103. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogJune 28, 2015 at 11:50 AM

    Caddyshack 2 is the worst and it's not even close.


    Best: Christmas Vacation

    ReplyDelete
  104. Christmas Vacation is the best movie in the series, narrowly beating out the original.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Horrlbe Bosses 2 was really good. Just as funny as the original. That series is pretty underrated

    ReplyDelete
  106. Watching the Dusty tribute on the Network... Steph touches on the semi-infamous promo with him a couple years ago.


    How she puts it, "Dusty had always wanted to do an angle with me."


    REALLY?

    ReplyDelete
  107. That PPV is $50! Good good that is horrible.

    ReplyDelete
  108. The whole thing is just a trick that human eyes are barely able to process. I don't remember the percentages but the people who get eyestrain, blurred vision & headaches are actually the majority.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Eh, gonna skip that shit then.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Meltzer wants to kill american pro wrestling so that puroresu become the only wrestling style in the world

    ReplyDelete
  111. She's definitely feeding her ego in saying it, but it could be true nonetheless.

    ReplyDelete
  112. We watched the movie in 2D, we bailed on doing 3D stuff ages ago

    ReplyDelete
  113. I'm going to be stir crazy. My illegal truck is out of gas, and my internet is getting turned off tomorrow. I'll be living in the proverbial Stone Age where all there is to do is get outside and walk like a rustic.

  114. I mean like... even in death, you can't put the guy over a bit and humble yourself?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Go nuts?

    LOUD NOISES! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

  116. Worst: Christmas Vacation 2 & A Christmas Story 2.

  119. Almost had a brawl at the wedding too. Another weddig party was a the hotel and the boyfriend of the groom's sister made a comment about their pizza as a joke and the other kid started flipping out like an asshole. So, the BF of the groom's sister almost beat the shit out of the kid. And that kid would have ended the fight in ten seconds flat.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I lived off Rice-a-Roni for the better part of two years. It was my only meal of the day, and I'd drink water and do pushups while playing Madden '11 on PS2.


    I was fucking LEAN.

    ReplyDelete
  121. MIB 2 is fucking awful. The third was surprisingly good though.

    ReplyDelete
  125. They would have been better off make Slammiversary a live special on DA and just tap a One night only thing for their PPV obligation.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Caddyshack 2 and Hangover 3 are up there for worst. As is Grown Ups 2. Best might be 22 Jump Street.

    ReplyDelete
  127. That shit can't be good for your eyes, then. Glad I'm abstaining. Now I'll go blind for totally unrelated reasons.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I still have an SNES (Xbox was sold for bills), so that's my survival plan.

  129. Holy crap, that movie made $33 million?

  130. Tunisia is added 1,000 police to tourist areas.


    You know where I want to vacation? In a place teeming with armed men, required so as to keep all of the other armed men at bay.

  131. I've never tried the new version... but the old red/blue thing never worked for me either.

  132. Good time to stock up on Greek yogurt.

    ReplyDelete
  133. And push ups! Bane-like body transformation coming up I see with all this protein and bodyweight workouts

    ReplyDelete
  134. It's worth seeing in a theater in 3D simply because it's so well done. As a movie on its own it's ok. There is barely an original idea in the entire thing.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Gun nuts in the U.S. think everyone carrying guns is a great and safe.

  138. WWE must have given Bully Ray a very, very firm 'No, thanks' for him to crawl back into TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  139. When I got married, I had to not invite the husband of my sister because we were afraid he would start a fight. He never approved of me dating a gentile and purposely tried to break us up several times. Everyone was afraid he would start a fight or say something inappropriate so we didn't invite him (got my sister's ok first). There was also a couple skinheads there (part of the bride's side of the family) but they were always cool with me and we actually got along great.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I made friends with the other bride at our venue... because I love strangers and she looked like a train wreck. She was by herself, tatted up back, outside smoking black & milds... beer bottle in hand, IN A COOZY.


    I love the entertainment of strangers.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Capital controls. There's nothing else that can be done. Enjoy your haircuts, lenders.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I agree, just pointing out how moronic gun nuts are.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Well now... my family's fussin' and feudin' doesn't seem so bad in comparison to skinheads.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I dunno, you can see how the 'no cops!' Plan worked out in Baltimore.

    ReplyDelete
  145. This other kid stated flipping out like an asshole and made threats. I have no idea his problem but ts not the thing to do when you are around a lot of people who have been drinking.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Seriously... even if just during load times and cut scenes for video games.


    Fuck, I'm going to do 25 right now.

  148. If we are lucky we'll get to see a few matches with him in PWG. Roddy, Ricochet and Cole would all be great matches.

    ReplyDelete
  149. American ignorance question: why is Greek's economy doing so badly? Every economy stunk after 2008 but why are they so worse off?

    ReplyDelete
  150. I get a kick out of the notion that the solution for the rampant gun violence is more people having more guns in more places.

    ReplyDelete
  151. That's the other thing. My brother in law and the skinheads both like to drink a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Because they created an unsustainable system of pensions and other benefits that bankrupted themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I can under stand someone owning a rifle or shotgun in the country to go hunting. But you'll never sway me on handguns.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Was it open bar or cash bar?

    ReplyDelete
  155. Its the psychotic paranoia of gun nuts. No guns are taken away from people in the U.S. like they claim.

    I'm pretty sure James Storm just murdered Mickie James. Impact Wrestling was absolutely right to sever ties with this lunatic. Sam Shaw is a stalker. They did a good thing by releasing him. Low-ki - that personality test came back "warrior" one too many times to make anyone comfortable, so he had to go. Austin Aries - name one good match he's ever had. And Gunner - maybe this should go in the thread about Ric Flair not having a good eye for the business, but I always felt he was a bit off when he would refer to Gunner as "The Future." It was too soon to tell, Ric. Now, because you built him up too much, he's released. One more great Ric Flair call.

  159. Like the back of a Batmobile?

  160. Does the fact they spent billions on the 2004 olympics make a difference?

    ReplyDelete
  161. Our party was open. The other wedding at the venue was in the lobby eating Dominos like a group of assholes. And they were assholes and not tough at all, and they hid behind a lesbian the whole time, who was about 5'2 135 lbs and the only person there with any sense. She looked like Frankie Muniz but was cool and not a shithead like the rest.

    As great as the Flair-Funk feud ended up being. . . what if it's Lex Luger who comes out after the Flair-Steamboat match at WrestleWar, piledrives Flair, and poses over his dead body with the belt? The storyline was already there. Luger was already heel and US champion. He watches Flair and Steamboat stealing the show repeatedly in the spot Lex thinks he should be in. Waits for Flair to be vulnerable after the Steamboat classic, then strikes.


    Great American Bash '89: Flair returns from neck injury way too soon and Luger finally beats him for the title, getting Luger's piledriver over as a killer.


    Havoc '89: Luger retains against Flair by escaping a cage. Flair starts a self-doubt/redemption story arc after failing again. He gets in Sting's corner, Rocky/Apollo-style, and endorses him as the future. Build to Luger vs. Sting for Starrcade


    Starrcade '89: Flair turns on Sting, Luger retains, in a heartbreaker. Flair & Luger finally found mutual respect through violence and Lex finally knows what it means to be a Horseman. Arn & Ole returned soon after, in early '90. Windham too. Brings it all full circle, with Luger as a "real" Horseman this time and Flair/Lex realizing they are more dominant together than feuding with each other. Both are jealous of Sting's rise to the top. * If Sting's knee still gets blown out, let the Horsemen (Flair/Luger/Windham/Arn, with Ole) dominate until the Bash' 90 return of Sting.


    Bash '90: Sting beats Luger for the title (Steiners, JYD, Pillman, Gigante help fend off the Horsemen)


    Havoc '90: Sting def. Luger in the rematch. Flair & Arn fail to win the Tag Titles. Windham is dominant US champ. Luger ends up with one foot out of the group again after failing to regain the title. Flair retakes his rightful spot as The Man in the Horsemen.

  164. Public sector employees are startling well paid, and the population doesn't pay taxes. So they borrowed a lot.

    The butthurt runs deep with those fucks right now. Despite it having absolutely no discernible impact on their lives, they need everyone to know that "gays iz bad and so is you!"

  167. David Ortiz will be an interesting HoF Choice. He's going to get well over 500 homers. His Fangraphs WAR however is at 43 which is well below what a standard HoFer is at.

  168. I think a lot of time there are religious protests, it's just because the protesters are generally just such sad, hateful little people they want to see what people actually having fun look like.

    And Magnus - give Vince Russo credit. The American wrestling fan will only ever care about American wrestlers because America. He's British, which means he probably doesn't even know the language. "Fish and chips?" No no no. Fries and chips are not the same thing. And on the subject, vinegar goes on fish, not on potato chips. #learnAmerican

    It's extremely similar to what India experienced in the late 80's/early 90's.My dad described the utter humiliation and sense of defeat people felt back then.It was so bad we had to fly our gold reserves to London just to buy a month's worth of fuel.

  173. If you look at the screen of a newer 3D movie without the glasses the elements that are in 3D are blurry: basically a double image. There is a layer in the lenses of the glasses that force your eyes to line the blurred images up, but also focus at different depths. It's a function that our eyes are technically capable of but not meant to do. It's taking a flat image and tricking our eyes into seeing it in layers, mimicking our natural stereoscopic depth of vision. The strain comes from your eyes & brain being forced to focus on objects at a distance closer than they actually are.

  175. I HATE the fact the media reports about shark attacks so much. The number of people that die from it is so little compared to bigger causes of death.

  178. This sounds like the talk of someone who wants to take away my right to bear sharks!

  179. India also had their own currency. I feel like the Greeks will do well with a new drachma, simply because the Germans will not be able to dictate if the Greeks will be allowed to get out of depression.
