Chris Sabin stated in a recent interview with Busted Open satellite radio that he’s not worried or afraid for the future of TNA Wrestling.
“I am the TNA World Heavyweight Champion and I’m not worried. People have been saying they’ve been worried about the company, honestly, since I started. There has always been that little whisper in the background like, ‘Oh, no how much longer is it gonna last?’ That’s been going on since the beginning and you know what – it is still here today. So, even though I think this is maybe just another wave of little chatter, and that’s all it’s gonna be. I think the company will continue to thrive.”
Just in time for San Diego Comic Con, Christopher Daniels was a guest on the Myth Media Podcast.
“Daniels discusses his 35 years as a comic book fan with specific attention paid to his favorite franchise, X-Men, and his favorite character Wolverine. In the interview, Daniels discusses how he became a fan, some of his favorite comic book runs over the years, how he feels about the “X-Men” film franchise, what he thinks of “The Wolverine” just two weeks ahead of his release, and how he feels about the Quicksilver controversy. He also reveals how he continues to fuel his fandom for his favorites and other Marvel titles like “Avengers Arena” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Inside the Ropes spoke with Luke Gallows following his release from TNA Wrestling. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Why he left TNA: “I think that there were big plans for me going forward and part of me thinks it’s a shame that we didn’t get to go that route but the decision was a mutual thing and was strictly a business decision. I really enjoyed the year I had with TNA, I got to work with some of my best friends doing the Aces and Eights thing and there’s some really fine people there. But at the end of the day business is business. I had to weigh up my options in the business and opportunities I have, and I guess TNA were looking at where they were business wise. We couldn’t mutually agree on something that was good for both of us. The door isn’t closed though and the parting wasn’t bad or animosity on either side. I think it’s a bit of a shame that the fans won’t get to see what we had planned but it’s the nature of the beast I guess. There’s some other thing I wanna do in wrestling and now I can go and explore that.”
