I bought one of the retro brown bags, mainly because I wanted the three old school DVDs it was guaranteed to come with and I ended up getting those, the Best of Jeff Hardy, an impact wrestling trucker hat, an Abyss shirt that's not bad for a TNA shirt, a Brooke tessmacher banner that's borderline pornographic, a signed 8x10 of James Storm, unsigned 8x10s of R-Truth, Rhyno, Jay Lethal, Eric Young and Samos Joe and A DIXIE CARTER ACTION FIGURE.

I feel satisfied with my purchase.

Don West hooked you up.

Jade/Mia Yim (God that name they gave her upsets me so much) is genuinely very good, through I don't know if she's ever been able to show it in TNA. Look up her work in SHIMMER, she's a great fiery babyface

STOP DOING HEROIN

Jade is really good and I'm surprised NXT didn't make a bigger push to sign her when they had the chance. Allie is the former Cherry Bomb and has done some good work on the indies before. Rosemary is a better character than wrestler but she's not actively bad.

Is Gail Kim still around? She was still getting some decent matches out of Awesome Kong, who was Khali levels of immobile in her last TNA run.

Gail Kim is still there, and is still good enough to get a pretty decent match out of anyone.

TOO EASY

I've seen all of like 2 segments with Aron Rex's new gimmick and he doesn't seem like an exotico at all, he's just a messy Rico Constantino gay stereotype in a Ric Flair robe. When I think of exoticos I think Pimpinela Escarlata or Yosuke Santa Maria, who actually wrestle in full drag and in the latter's case even uses feminine pronouns.

His entrance also smacks of Bobby Roode's Glorious gimmick. And it's depressing to see Rockstar Spud put so much effort into this.

Idol Stevens/Damien Sandow/Aron Rex is always saying it's time for him to show the "real him" and then just does another impersonation of some other past wrestler. Perhaps they'll reveal there is no "real" Aron Rex and he's a sociopath with split personalities

Let's be honest, this is the real Aron Rex. It just so happens that the real Aron Rex is a comedy jobber who shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a mic.

I got your scoops right here.


PWInsider:

quote:

Since we have gotten some emails about a few TNA related topics, here is the latest:
*As of this writing, the company has not yet locked in Matt and Jeff Hardy to new deals. But they are leaning towards staying with the company.
*Drew Galloway has also yet to sign a new deal. No idea where things stand there.
*Dixie Carter has moved out of the TNA offices in Nashville, TN and is not involved in any TNA decision-making and is effectively gone from the company. Her husband, Serg Salinas, is also no longer with the company. He lists on his LinkedIn Profile that in January, he left the company to work as General Manager of Trifecta Entertainment and Tex-Ville Tunes Music Publishing in Nashville, TN. Trifecta Entertainment was the company Dixie Carter owned and ran before TNA.
*Jeff Jarrett is believed to be coming on board as the new Executive Producer, replacing John "Big" Gaburick, but we have heard differing accounts of whether Jarrett's deal is done. Jarrett is still moving forward with GFW so it's possible he will try and bridge the two entities together going forward. I wouldn't be shocked to see the GFW TV that was filmed in Las Vegas eventually end up on Fight Network, but that's only my gut feeling.
*The latest word is John Gaburick is not leaving the company as we have heard he has restructured his deal to remain as a producer.
*There have been no major office departures and thus far, no real talk of moving the company to Toronto yet but that is still a possibility.
*Staff were in Toronto this week at Anthem and Fight Network Studios, McKenzie Mitchell will be doing some material there with Josh Mathews. Jeff Jarrett was also there talking plans and ideas for the company with Ed Nordholm and Jason Brown.
*Dutch Mantel is officially Head of Creative, joining Matt Conway, Gaburick and Madison Rayne.
*Don West is, thus far, only back to help liquidate the TNA warehouse. We are told there was a ton of merchandise that needed to be sold off so the company is working towards that end. Bringing back West was a Jarrett idea. However there are people who would love him on commentary due to his selling ability with pay-per-views and other digital content. "He could sell you a dead rat and you'd buy it" was one comment I got.
