TNA Belts Get Jacked In Iowa

Pictured above: a gentleman who paid way more than $400 for his belt.

From Jason Powell, by way of KCCI.com:

TNA has arrested two Iowa men and charged them with stealing the TNA Title belt and a replica version of the strap. Joel Luke, 33, was charged with second-degree theft. Forrest Jamison, 39, was charged as an accessory.

This was really supposed to be Eric’s story, but he’s neck deep in dirty dirty whores, so here I go reporting on the continuing saga of white trash methheads vs. civilized society. According to Powell, the TNA Title championship belt was valued at $6,000 and the replica version at $400. Mama mia, that’s a lot of dangerous illegal drugs! And they would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for you meddling kids! And that dog!

Also of note here is that this somehow makes TNA seem even more low rent than they already do. You just get the feeling this kind of thing would *never* happen to WWE, no matter how erratic Vince McMahon is behind the scenes. We here at Stunt Granny will follow this beat for you, the loyal reader, no matter what twists and turns this sordid tale takes. That’s carny for “We will forget this story tomorrow.” – Dusty

Devon Is Gone. Is Bully Ray Next?

According to this story from Prowrestling.net, Devon Dudley is gone from TNA or Impact Wrestling, whatever they prefer right now. He tweeted:

I would like to thank the TNA fans for making the last seven years fun. I’m sure we will see each other again down the road real soon.

Then answered “Yes” to another fan’s question about his contract expiring. I’d love to make a big stink out of this gaffe because he’s the Television Champion but I can’t. It’s not nearly as bone headed as Ring of Honor’s decision to let one half of their tag team champions leave right after winning the damn titles.

TNA had done a decent job of building the TV Title back up by having Devon defending it on a mostly weekly basis. My apathy towards this gaffe comes in when you compare Devon to his former partner, Bully Ray. It’s great that Devon can help build up the mid-card and younger wrestlers but Bully Ray has been in the main event mix for a couple of months now. His contract is thought to run out around the same time, which begs the question of whether TNA is going to resign him. If they don’t, I may have quit using my Twittah Machine to watch Godzilla movies. -Kevin
