TOTAL NONSTOP ACTION WRESTLING NEWS
Jeff Jarrett, on Australian TV last night (watch here:
http://tinyurl.com/mqc7v5), announced TNA is coming to the country for a live event tour late Feb-early March. Cities on the tour include Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. They are running the same venues that WWE usually does which is very ambitious. WCW did strong business over there in 2000 during it’s dying days, but that was ten years ago and the landscape has very much changed.
The Angelina Love situation has caused a lot of internal issues. The company is now scrambling to verify the paperwork of several talents, which is just astounding, and you would think a high priority, but apparently not.
Jim Cornette was a guest on www.feelthepain.net. He noted he has a new book out next year highlighting his vast Memphis Wrestling photo collection. When asked about the Angle-Jarrett situation it was a firm no comment. Smart guy. He said he has no involvement in the wiritng process although in his capacity of agent he is assigned matches to produce, and also works in the production truck. On Paul Heyman ever coming in, he said: “I have always said that Paul is an evil genius.
Everyone that knows us has always called us the bizarro twins because we’re complete polar opposites. And if you put us and Vince Russo on the ends of a triangle we would self destruct the universe. That thing about Paul is, he knows what he’s is doing. The question sometimes is why he is doing what he’s doing. I’ll leave it there.”
Ken Anderson (Mr. Kennedy) noted his WWE no compete expires on Wednesday. That would free him up to sign with TNA next week if he chose that route.
Kurt Angle’s next movie is scheduled for a direct to DVD release in December. It’s a low budget film called End Game starring Kurt as a serial killer who likes to stalk and kill beautiful women. The movie was produced by Northshore Pictures, a company based in Pittsburgh and is a partnership between Kurt, Bruce Kohler, Bryan Kohler and Dave Hawk, Kurt’s agent.
The Dailton Daily Citizen at http://tinyurl.com/nhdv3g has a story on AJ Styles.
Rhaka Khan has pulled out of several upcoming indy bookings. We don’t have a definitive word on her status. Dixie Carter has said in recent interviews that Khan is still part of the company while Rhan has stated publicly that she doesn’t feel she is welcome.
Due to a UFC marathon on Spike, Impact won’t air it’s replay in the usual timeslot next Saturday.
