“Diamond” Dallas Page was recently the guest for a special double interview on WGD Weekly with Steve and the Scum. During the two interviews, which each ran about an hour, DDP talked candidly with Steve and the Scum about all points throughout his time in the wrestling industry, right up through his current work with DDP Yoga and the numerous performers and athletes who have been taking part in his program.
Both interviews in their entirety can be heard here:
As we noted on PWInsider.com, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff took part in a Q&A in Toronto over the weekend as part of the Fan Expo event. A fan asked Hogan what could finally be done to make TNA successful.
Hogan said that Eric Bischoff “needed to be given the keys to the car” and that, “somebody somewhere” needed to “drop all the resources we need like we had in the WWE and the WWF, whether it be cameras or money or vehicles or advertising” in order for TNA to work “in a perfect world.”

Eric Bischoff recently spoke with Bob Kapur of SLAM! Wrestling. Here are some highlights from the interview:
TNA’s current position:
“As someone who is very clearly associated with and very much invested in it emotionally, I want to see it succeed, obviously. I think the business, and the television business, is an extremely competitive one. It’s difficult for a lot of people and for a lot of networks. We’re competing with general entertainment, we’re competing for extremely valuable real estate on a very important television network that’s owned by a very important media conglomerate. But I think there is a ton of potential in TNA. It’s uniquely positioned to grow, and to become much larger in many ways than it is right now.”
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 26, 2013:

TNA Wrestling producer Eric Bischoff recently appeared on Inside The Ropes where he addressed critical remarks from WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart. Highlights from the interview are as follows:
On Bret Hart’s run in WCW: “I had spoken to and met Bret several times before he made the jump. I was obviously excited to have him but clearly Bret Hart was a very broken….and in my opinion still is, from the interviews I hear him do, a very sad, broken and bitter person. That was pretty evident when he first came over. He was a shadow or a shell of his former self. Wherever Bret was, the high point of his character, what I got was a kind of broken, sad shell of that and quite honestly I don’t think he’s ever come out of it.”
