TNA is Dead

Well the name of the company is, anyway. They will now be known as Impact Wrestling.

Oh, and Chyna is coming in. So, you know, things are really on the up and up now. – Dusty

Triple H calls wrestling “young man’s” sport, gives no rub

"Rub *this,* pal!"

According to Prowrestling.net (see the video at that link), Triple H was recently interviewed by Kevin Eck of the Baltimore Sun at the red carpet event for something something whatever. Eck asked H (see, in journalism, you use last names after the first reference) whether or not he intends to return to the ring full-time. H responded by saying:

“No, as of right now, I’m not planning to return full-time to the ring. To quote Vince, I think I’ll be “in case of emergency, break glass.’ I’m at a good point for me. It’s a young man’s business. I’m at a point where I’m still healthy. I can still do this when I want.”

“When he wants” appears to be hardly ever, and to little benefit to anyone but himself. If you recall, Hunter’s last match was against Undertaker, an old man who needs no rub, at WrestleMania 28, a show on which ‘Taker wouldn’t lose if he’d just had all of his limbs cut off in a horrible lawn tractor accident. The match was labeled an “instant classic” by people without eyes, ears or emotions. His prior two matches before that were 11 and 12 months prior, both against relative newcomer Sheamus, who is awesome and could have used the wins to kick his career’s Irish ass even further into the stratosphere. Hunter won their WM27 match and only lost their Extreme Rules match because he was brutally attacked at the start of the show. Rub-a-dub-dub. So, I guess here’s hoping Hunter continues helping this young man’s business only by bringing us new stars like Sin Cara and Kharma and not by failing to stifle his ego and squashing 50 percent of the roster while wearing a DX shirt. -Eric

I *am* serious, bro: New True Long Island Story with Zack Ryder

I’m such a freaking dork for this show: Zack Ryder posted a new “Z! True Long Island Story” on his YouTube channel today. This episode shows him fist-pumping with the Rock, reaching for the brass ring, and getting his new Mattel action figure’s tan up to par. The best part is his take on the “Do Not Try This At Home” vignettes, including John Cena throwing up the “L.I.” God damn, this show is great. Matt Hardy could learn a thing or two about how to make himself popular via YouTube, but he’d have to scoot out from behind the mountain of Little Debbie Honey Buns in front of his computer screen. -Eric

Stunt Granny Audio Show #140

It’s Dusty and Kevin this time around, and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. The two go in depth on this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw. What did they think of Vince McMahon’s patriotic jingoism? What about the Rock taking up like 45 minutes of air time? Surely they had some sort of opinion on that. Is Mason Ryan the next literal big thing, or are they just using him until Dave Asthma comes back? Was this a bad show or a really bad show? The two then shift their focus to talking about Tough Enough and how awesome Steve Austin has been over the last five weeks. If you think good things are good, then you are going to want to listen to this audio.
