WHO WOULD HAVE BEEN PUSHED HAD WCW & ECW LIVED, KNOCKOUTS AT SLAMMIVERSARY AND MORE

If WCW and ECW hadn't closed down, what wrestlers that were signed at the time do you think would have received bigger pushes in those companies than they did in either WWE or TNA? Off the top of my head I'd say Mike Awesome, Lance Storm, Chuck Palumbo and Sean O'Haire in WCW and CW Anderson, Simon Diamond, Kid Kash in ECW.

In WCW, you could see they were getting ready to push Jason Jett. Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kevin Nash, etc. were all set to return and you know they would have been the top dogs. I could have seen Lance Storm settling into a top role as well. It's interesting to note that WCW had planned on grabbing some talent from ECW as well, so some of those names may have been pushed too. In ECW, CW Anderson would have gone babyface as Tommy Dreamer's ally and partner. The top feud was to have been RVD chasing Rhino and the Tag scene would have been built around Steve Corino and Justin Credible as a team facing off with Doring & Roadkill. Jerry Lynn would have been a top heel. Low Ki, The Backseat Boyz, The SAT and The Amazing Red would have been brought in with pushes as well.

After a long absence Crimson made his return to TNA. His first match back was a Bound for Glory bout against Joseph Park. Park defeated Crimson with a roll up. Does this mean Crimson's long undefeated streak is over? If so amazing that it happened against of all people Joseph Park. Opinion?

The undefeated streak ended last year, which Crimson discussed in his promo before the match!

Why wasn't there a Knockout title match at TNA's Slammiversary?

TNA wanted to give Taryn Terrell and Gail Kim the blow-off of their feud, plus with Mickie James' new direction, it made sense not to have it on the PPV. It's sort of crazy you are asking why they didn't have a title match when instead TNA gave us the best women's match on national TV of the year.

Whatever happened to Iron Mike Sharpe?

It's believed Sharpe moved back to Canada from New Jersey, where he resided most of his career but no one that I know has been able to figure out where he is. A lot of his former students have wanted to get in contact with him.

Where's Nailz?

The former Nailz aka Mr. Magnificent Kevin Kelly in the AWA still lives in his native Minnesota.
