  1. Not bad, it's Sunday which means no work and I'm vista g TWO again after a long time!
  2. Currently enjoying Breaking Bad Season 4 courtesy of Netflixs, as well as waiting in anticipation for Thick of It Series 4 to hit BBC 2 soon
  3. Ultimately, very few stars are bigger than a promotion, so generally when a star leaves a company it has very little effect on that organition. With regards to some of the current (potential) departures from TNA, I'd say the only one to be considered a loss would be Bully Ray, who has definitely got to be considered for a World Title run should he stay with TNA. With regards to Morgan leaving, I do think TNA could have used him better, but having said that, he's had runs in the Wwe & TNA, maybe he's just not the big star he or people seem to think he should be.
  4. I'd agree with that wholeheartedly, Roode has money written all over him, I could see him being a top heel in the company quite easily, just needs booking correctly, which I'm doubtful will happen.

    WWE 12

    Double A in a WWE Video Game. Result!
  6. Pretty much my wallet and phone, sometimes my house keys and car keys too. When I'm going to work, in my bag I usually carry my glasses, some spare contact lenses, a pen, some paracetamol and my iPod (occasionally a book).
  7. On the subject, does anyone have any idea how many "office" staff TNA employee, I'm curious about the size of the company?
  8. I can't really argue with the one, unless there is some underlying office politics involved, which is usually the case.
  9. Well, that's business isn't it. I'm sure TNA wouldn't have released him if they really didn't have too, but they must have needed to, having said that, its really un wise / difficult to speculate on matters like this, because we're not in the "know" and neither is WO or F4. Sometimes you have to make difficult cuts for the sustainability of the company in the long term.
  10. As much as many people see Big Brother as trash TV and very "un cool" I'll be watching it, for no other reason than its a bit of fun and its easy to watch, much like wrestling :)
  11. Crimson has some potential but I don't think he's a "game changer", TNA runs the risk of pushing him too fast, then having nothing left for him, or taking too long, and the initial "buzz" dies out. For me, I think its too early to be putting him in a programme with the likes of Angle, I'd wait a while longer.
  12. For a company like TNA, where is probably a day to day battle to keep in the black, I think its important for them to cut staff which they don't necessarily need, both on screen and off, that way, they can ensure they can stay in the black and avoid becoming the next WCW.
  13. Gutted, the wrestling world has lost of one the all time greats.
  14. In the defence of Hogan, its probably just a matter of him not really thinking too much about what he said, as you say, Hogan comes from an era when I'm sure promos were just what was the first thing to enter your head. Just a case of not being very well thought out by Hogan.
  15. From Hogan's twitter; Typical Hogan, an apology and a dig at someone.
  16. TNA (and the WWE) and every other promotiuon in the world are a business, and like any other business, profits (or the chance of making profits) come before employees rights and feelings. Welcome to the real world.
  17. I hope TNA get keep up the momentum, they have a really hot angle here and if booked well should be very entertaining. TNA need to build up the "Immortal" vs. "Fortune" angle, making sure they don't make either group look too weak. The biggest problem with past gang war storylines in TNA is that they never build the babyface stable up good enough, for example the MEM vs. TNA Frontline / Originals storyline, the good guys were booked so poorly they never posed any threat to the MEM. I'm also looking forward to Flair retuning, TNA should tease the "Whose side is he on" angle. Well done TNA, for turning what SEEMED like a negative and turning it into a positive.
  18. Yeah, I did notice that Anderson got lost in the main event, consider he was the World Champion he should have played a more pivotal role in that angle, having said that, TNA had a lot to get over in that segment so I can see why maybe Anderson took a step back. With regards to Flair, I think he'll stay with Immortal, maybe he can mentor another talent and bring them into Immortal to beef them up. We've seen too many turns at the moment for Anderson to join Immortal at this stage.
  19. I wouldn't count on it you know. I heard time and time again that the one thing Angle misses is the recognition of being a WWE superstar, he doesn’t get that in TNA because the brand is not as well known as the WWE. I honestly believe if the WWE offered Angle a reduced schedule and a good sum of money he’d jump on it and be back in the of the WWE like Nash.

    2011 Book Thread

    I've got a couple of books on the go at the moment; The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan, part of the Wheel of Time series of book. I'm really enjoying this book so far, I just don't seem to have the time to read it as much as I'd like. Sum of All Fears by Tom Clancy - Finding it harder to get into than other Tom Clancy books, its okay but not as gripping as say The Hunt for Red October.
  21. In regards to the above, I read on another forum (so please take it for what its worth) that Nash signed a new deal last month, but after he saw the way Kurt Angle was used to demolish Immortal and the Abyss / Crimson segment from a few weeks ago on Impact, he decided to back out of his deal. Sounds like Nash screwed TNA a little bit. With regards to Impact, I watched the ending segment where Fortune turned and I actually thought it turned out really well, especially for AJ Styles, who I thought looked a very strong leader of Fortune. The only problem I see now is that there seems to be more babyface guys than heels and that usually don't work that well.
  22. Credit - PWInsider.com http://www.pwinsider.com/article/54945/top-tna-stars-deal-coming-up-in-several-months.html?p=1 So Kurt Angle's TNA deal is up for renewal in August, should he stay he stay or should he go back to the WWE? I would think that with the WWE lacking a lot of star power at the moment, they would make a play to resign Angle back to the WWE, maybe with the offer of big money and a lighter work load. I do think that it’s only a matter of time before he returns to the WWE, the bridges that he burnt with Vince McMahon have probably been repaired now and I'd think that Kurt Angle probably craves the large audiences and notoriety he had when he was in the WWE. Do you think Kurt should go back to the WWE or stay with TNA? If he did leave TNA, would this damage TNA in the long term?
  23. Totally agree too, at the end of the day, TNA are better off without Booker T and Nash in the long run, Okay, so the current storyline is a bit botched, but I don't think it will cause TNA any long term damage.
  24. This may be very true, but TV execs should no better than to dictate on booking a wrestling show. I don't think guys like Nash or Booker have ever been a draw. Nash wasn't much of a draw in the WWE in their 90's, in WCW, he was part of a larger picture that was a draw. As for Booker, again, no history of being a draw. The truth is very few individual wrestlers are draws.
  25. I think if anything TNA need to learn a few lessons from this episode; Firstly - TNA should not build any storylines or angles with guys that are not signed to long term TNA contracts. Seceondly - Taping TV so far in advance can cause huge problems, If TNA didn't tape show so far in advance it may have been possible for them to back track a little when they knew Booker and Kevin Nash weren't going to sign with TNA. For example, if last week's show was live or taped last week, TNA might have been able to push the angle in a different direction. At the end of the day, old stars such as Nash, Booker and Sting haven't helped TNA in the past in terms of long term TV ratings, so why do they think they should use them? The younger talent is the future of TNA.
