The type of young athlete TNA needs to be pushing.

The type of young athlete TNA needs to be pushing.

There’s a whole heap of things to talk about this week, and Kevin and Dusty are the only people adequately prepared to do so! And boy do they ever, starting off with some Monday Night Raw discussion. Dusty is sick of having McMahon family reunions on his television screen. Kevin is confused by the whole thing and wonders if they really think they’re knocking it out of the park with these segments. Dusty is also sick of Michael Cole on commentary, and Jerry Lawler as well, but has no idea how to fix that problem. Is there anyone from another wrestling company worth bringing in? Should WWE look outside the wrestling business?

Then they turn their attention to the mess that is TNA. How long can a company be going out of business before actually going out of business? Do they realize how bad they look by getting rid of so many people and then teasing a surprise appearance for the next show? Did a throwaway reality show really beat their show in the ratings? Did Dixie Carter really call Taeler Hendrix fat? Does she prefer that Angelina Love 35 pounds look? Does she realize Mickie James isn’t exactly a size zero right now herself? Also, the Main Event Mafia is a stale idea that means nothing to anyone, it’s really hard to feel bad for Samoa Joe, James Storm should be in WWE, and a whole lot more! We don’t think you’re too heavy to listen to it, so go for it!

TNA releases… wait, TNA released some people?

Least slutty picture I could find from my work computer that everyone can see now.

From the “Never Thought I’d See the Day” Department, which is right next door to the “Hoarding” Department and the “I Have So Many Wrestlers to Cut $100 Checks To That I’m Going to Murder Myself” Payroll Office… oh, and according to a few articles at Prowrestling.net, TNA has released some wrestlers! Holy crap! The company whose roster page is 18 columns wide by infinity long has released Joey Ryan, Taeler Hendrix, Crimson and Christian York, while also allowing Madison Rayne’s contract to expire. I personally think that, with all of the on-screen drama his Gut Check segment created, that the Ryan release is a work. The others make perfect sense, as Crimson is useless, Christian York forgot it’s not 2000 anymore, and I’m not entirely sure if Taeler Hendrix is a male or a female. In summary, good riddance to bad rubbish, although here’s hoping someone makes lemonade out of this Joey Ryan thing. (Leave it to TNA to make AIDS out of lemonades.)

Funny I mentioned payroll a minute ago, given the other news from Prowrestling.net that TNA has been behind on payroll lately. Here’s a snippet from the story that will make Chris Sabin feel really good:

One source noted that it was widespread enough that even a prominent former TNA Champion was telling colleagues that the company was six weeks behind on his pay.

Super! Does this mean Sting will quit buying red lipstick to go with his 16-year-old Crow face paint? Or, on the flipside, that Kurt Angle will need to endorse more meal supplements? I’d rather see him go back to hawking pizza. -Eric
