TNA FINALLY RUNNING NYC FOR PPV & TV, WWE WRESTLERS BURYING WCW TALENTS AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2013-03-14 10:00:00
WWE.com just listed 15 wrestlers who "should've been bigger deals". Mike Awesome was one. It got me to thinking back to his time in the WWF. I recall reports saying Undertaker buried Awesome to upper management, saying his work wasn't crisp enough or something. Was this the real story, or was Taker p.o.'d there was another big man who could do top rope moves better than him?

There were a number of WWE locker room veterans who politically were cutting the legs out from under WCW talents they felt didn't think lived up to being WWE talents. Awesome was one. Undertaker was one but it wasn't just one voice.

Did the fans who attended the final live Impact at Universal Studios in Orlando know that it was the last time TNA would have shows there? Was there any notice on the building site? I assume most knew. Did everyone? I'd hate for someone returning from a great distance only to find the building locked up.

Everyone knew. To be honest, if someone is so stupid they go to the Impact Zone assuming there is a show when there wasn't one announced, they deserve to arrive there, Wallyworld styles, and find it closed.

Even though Ivalese was not the winner of the recent GutChek do you see her signing on with TNA as a member of Aces and Eights? I personally thought she should have won.

I think that's a good idea actually. I hope it happens.

I was watching a tape featuring two WWE Divas. It was Kelly Kelly vs Natalya Neidhart. As they were getting into the ring Michael Cole remarked that Natalya was the daughter of the late Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart. I didn't know he passed away.

He didn't. Cole screwed up.

Now that TNA has cut back on pay-per-views and left Orlando, what are the chances that they will have a major event like Live Impact taping or pay-per-view like Bound for Glory in NYC? I believe that Dixie Carter is avoiding having anything but house shows in NYC for fear going head to head against Vince McMahon and the WWE, which does't really make sense since ROH usually have their biggest pay-per-view, Best in the World, at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Midtown. I know it will unrealistic to have a TNA pay-per-view at Madison Square Garden, but they could have it a the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn or at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island and have a live taping of impact at either at Hammerstein Ballroom or even at the MCU stadium during their annual Basebrawl Stadium. No disrespect to Boston or San Antonio, but neither one of them are NYC. Your thoughts?

I am with you 100%. The early talk on Bound for Glory is that Chicago was the most discussed location this year. Time will tell.
