Since WWE Raw, SmackDown, Main Event, Superstars and NXT is on Hulu Plus are there plans for both TNA and/or ROH to air their TV shows on Hulu Plus?

Currently, no. ROH does have their show online at their website at: http://www.rohwrestling.com/.

I was wondering if Kelly Kelly would ever go to TNA?

I don't see any way that happens. She is looking to act and do other projects. If she is going to come back to wrestling, it will be for WWE in my opinion.

I'm sorry but the fact that TNA has to be "judicious" about AJ Styles and the fact that there is an actual possibility "Mr. TNA", one of the biggest advocates and THE poster boy for TNA may be let go even though he probably costs the company a FRACTION of what Hulk Hogan does at 60, even though Hulk Hogan can do a fraction of what AJ can, REALLY angers me! Am I alone on this? Opinions?? Where's the loyalty? Where's the common sense? I know Hulk is a bigger name but, what has he actually done for the company?? Has he brought them more money or viewers?? Shoulda made a deal w/ Heyman when they had a chance. That would have probably cost them less than Hogan and actually earned them fans, viewers and dollars long-term. Am I alone in feeling Dixie only keeps Hogan to feel legitimized? (Which is a sad and unfortunate perspective.) I think Hogan has done whatever he could for the company to no great avail. Didn't he say something along the lines of 'If ratings/company/money doesn't go up in two years I'm out'?? Sorry for the long diatribe...feeling bothered by the state of TNA. Anyway I can get a hold of Dixie? Lol. #saveusjarrett

In a perfect world, there would be money for AJ. But, the world isn't perfect. TNA is working under budget constraints and everyone's contract is under scrutiny, including Hogan's. I always think about the parable of Ralph Kiner leading in the league in home runs for a bad Pittsburgh Pirates team. He went into the owner's office and said he wanted a raise because he led the league in homers. The owner asked where the Pirates finished. Kiner said, "Last". The owner replied, "We can do that without you". Sadly, that is the position that AJ is in. He is highly paid, which he has earned, at a time where TNA business is flat.

I was wondering if John Cena wouldn't have wrestle at Summerslam, what would the plan have been for the WWE title?

Luckily, they didn't have to deal with it. But if Cena couldn't go, and with him being on the shelf for 4 to 6 months, I think WWE would have done something to make that a WWE Title match, maybe with Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan. Thank God they didn't have to do that. John Cena is a tough guy and did all he could to ensure that doesn't happen.

What is Alberto Del Rio doing at a bar at the night before SummerSlam? Regardless the fight, shouldn't a wrestler be in bed at this time before the day of a big show?

He was having a drink of course! Honestly, ADR is not a child. He is a grown man that knows how to treat his body. If he ever showed up for a match unprepared, I would have an issue with it but he never has. He goes 100% every time he is out there.
