Stunt Granny Audio Show #169

Jeremy and Kevin jump in the circle mosh pit that is the WWE. CM Punk started Monday Night Raw by announcing the new champions which included Zack Ryder as United States Champion who is caught in the circle of becoming important because of his title then the title becoming irrelevant and Daniel Bryan as World Champion who is about to be in the circular push that is cashing in Money in the Bank. Does Kevin have any extra insight since he ordered Tables, Ladders & Chairs? Did JEremy notice all of Ryder’s new merchandise? Is CM Punk caught in a circle of his own? Which one is it? Is there a reason behind all of these circles? The guys get around to talking about the heels, most notably the Miz, Dolph Ziggler and Mark Henry? Do children understand why they are rooting against the Miz? Is Dolph Ziggler getting out of the vortex that is Vickie Guerrero? Is the World’s Strongest Man strong enough to resist getting put in a circle? What brings Jeremy and Kevin back to the beginning of their own show?

The 12 Days of Jesus H. Christmas: Day 8 – So Jimmy Yang still hasn’t gotten paid


(For the 12 days leading up to Christmas, Stunt Granny will relive with you the 12 most head-slapping, dipshitty stories of 2011, the things that made us wonder why we still watch professional wrestling and support some of these dingbats. And it would have been so easy to pick on Matt Hardy here, either for his suicide video on YouTube or his DWI arrest in the foothills of Moonshine Country. Or, in a plea for more Web site hits, we could have reposted the story about Linda Bollea accusing Hulk Hogan of having gay sex with Brutus Beefcake. Instead, we chose to pick on TNA, who, despite what you might hear from Kurt Angle or Hulk Hogan or Dixie Carter or Jeff Jarrett, still can’t afford to pay its jobbers. Enter the Yang.)
(Originally posted Aug. 18, 2011) It was all downhill from here, folks.

Speaking of TNA being soaked in trailer park, they apparently have yet to pay Jimmy Yang. Here’s what I’ve been able to gather from various internet reports about this. Yang did a one-shot appearance in TNA on the June 27 Impact Wrestling taping, reviving his old Flying Elvis character. The Flying Elvises were the first thing that ever appeared in TNA, way back during the weekly pay-per-view era. I used to get all those shows, because I had a friend who was willing to go half-and-half with me, and I was so desperate at the time for an alternative to WWE. Naive young Dusty.

In any event, it’s been since then and Yang has yet to get a paycheck from TNA that doesn’t bounce like a Milwaukee Bucks basketball. So naturally, this led to an upset Yang taking the whole thing public. For some reason, that action caused TNA management to call him up and tell him he was acting unprofessionally. An enraged Yang fired back that not paying someone for their work is what is *really* unprofessional.

Look, I know I’m Anti-TNA Guy around here. My colleagues usually choose to handle TNA with more diplomacy, for reasons that are lost on me. But I don’t think there’s any way to sugar coat this. This is TNA failing on an epic, public scale. Stuff like this is only going to serve to encourage released WWE performers to ply their trade in Japan or elsewhere overseas. TNA is the Little Engine That Absolutely Can’t But Insists On Continuing Anyway. – Dusty
