Headlines: Estimated buys for TNA Slammiversary, Chris Jericho to get Canadian “sitcom,” @CrrankyVince is back!

Make that 15 thousand and TWO!

According to Gerweck.net (hey, it’s storming out and I can’t sleep, so I’m trolling), estimated buys for TNA Slammiversary are in (courtesy Wrestling Observer Newsletter), and they’re about as pretty as Dixie Carter spread eagle on a bed of Abyss posters: Around 15,000 legally purchased the event, while countless others illegally streamed it online, and another bazillion people had been made to feel like god damn fools for ever paying attention to this company and didn’t even bother to steal it. The thing is, I caught last week’s Impact, and I liked it. One week down, 519 more weeks to go until we’re even, TNA.

According to SEScoops.com (hey, I have a gas bubble and I can’t sleep), Chris Jericho will begin work on a new scripted Internet drama, “But I’m Chris Jericho.” The format appears to be 4-minute episodes, with 10 episodes planned, written by some guys from Canada. One can only hope this falls somewhere between IFC’s “Portlandia” and Colt Cabana’s “Creative Has Nothing For You” on the Laff-o-Meter (where “Portlandia” is “good”).

Finally, in the best news I’ve heard since TNA only got 15K buys for its second-biggest show of the year, Cranky Vince is back!!! For those of you who enjoyed the @CrankyVince parody Twitter account before the soulless, humorless thugs of WWE abused their relationship with Twitter to have the account suspended, hold your breath in petulant 4-year-old anger no more! You can now follow “Vince” again @CrrankyVince. Who really knows if this account is run by the same genius behind the original Cranky Vince, but it’s here, it’s probably accurate, and it’s in all caps, so quit belly-aching and start following!

Dan & Kevin are back on the Pro Wrestling Ohio, scratch that, Prime Wrestling beat. What did the guys think of the name change? Would they suggest any changes? How is Aaron Maguire tied into this story line? Is Justin LaBar still part of the company?  Is “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine the bane of LaBar’s existence or did he move on to a new feud? The guys move on to talking about the Prime Wrestling Title picture right off the bat. Matt Cross was the champion coming into the first set of Prime Wrestling tapings but was he champion when the tapings ended? Krimson was one of his challengers but did he have too much on his plate with Matt Mason to capture the belt? Jimmy Jacobs was the other challenger but was he too busy ruffling Bobby Beverly’s feathers by helping Nicki Valentino becoming second in command? Dan & Kevin talk a little comedy when mentioning the new tag team of Dan Arkham & Bryan Castle? Is one guy more entertaining than the other? Do they have good chemistry? The guys keep trucking by talking about the other part of the Dead Wrestling Society, Gory, and his on going feud with Michael Facade for the TV Title. N8 Mattson claims that the Sons of Michigan will be adding to their ranks. Is it good that Mattson is still getting TV even though he is retired? Does Benjamin Boone get back on a winning streak after Mattson’s speech? Find out that and more in this rollicking podcast when you click below!
