Leonard Asper, a staggeringly stupid man who drove Canwest into the ground, just wants cheap content out of TNA.

Impact Wrestling's management has done what a few people were scared to do -- give me a microphone on live TV. Now I am not going to stand out here and talk about glass ceilings and brass rings and any other kind of cliche. I am going to do what I always have done and that is come out here and tell the truth. I am going to speak with full disclosure and for those that used to employ me -- don't worry, because this is not about you. This is about something near and dear to my heart, something that I've always put first and foremost in my career: the paying customer, the supporter of professional wrestling, the fans. Over the course of the past five years, me having this philosophy, some people have labeled me too entertaining to receive opportunities to compete for world titles. But remember this, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, no matter what any majority shareholder, CEO, or authority figure may want you to believe, anyone who has ever set foot in any ring has always worked directly for all of you.

So, Impact, here we are.

Let's talk about opportunity. Now, there are some that are preordained to receive opportunity after opportunity after opportunity and in the process not only is your intelligence insulted but your opinions are thrown out the window. There are others that on an even playing field seize opportunity. Right here on Impact Wrestling, right here in TNA, this is the proving ground where a talent can pass or fail, succeed or not succeed, based on talent alone.

Do we really need proof? I'll give you proof: EC3, Drew Galloway, Bobby Lashley, I mean there's even a guy called Brother Nero that I hear everybody talking about but I haven't met him but he sounds pretty good. You get my point.

When I first came here there was a graphic that said 'he's doing it his way.' This is my way: even playing field, take and sieze opportunity, exercise and realize my full potential. ... But mark my words, my way is simply proving it here. And my way is not only going to change the landscape but is going to change the very template of our industry. And for those of you that know me personally you know I'm telling the truth.

I've been called many names over the years. I'm going to keep it real with you guys -- my name is Aron and as of right now, as of this second, Aron Rex's new home is Impact Wrestling.

Talon, I love the layout of Impact Asylum. This is going to definitely be an interesting set of tapings and hopefully they can bring in some new talent. The other day, I was in a store and the Final Countdown was playing. During the chorus, I started singing it’s the Final Deletion really loud and my girlfriend acted like she didn’t know me.

The Final Deletion: (parody to the Final Countdown by Europe)
Brother Nero, I knew you’d come 
To where it all began in Cameron
To delete someone, it takes a lot of fuel 
And then you turn them into an obsolete mule
Senor Benjamin is much more than a landscaper
Preparing the battlefield for massacre
And deletion is the only cure
It's the final deletion, the final deletion, Oh

An extraordinary birthday xylophone 
King Maxel sits on the House Hardy throne
A dilapidated boat and Vanguard 1’s hologram
Matt won control of the Hardy brand
Can his brilliance ever be broken?
Changing his accent with every word that is spoken
The seven deities have now been awakened
It's the final deletion, the final deletion, the final deletion, the final deletion, Oh

"There have been rumblings of interest in former ROH star Donovan Dijak"

As for his twitter denial yesterday, wrestlers are notorious for denying things on twitter.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. For I the LORD thy Sun God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of cosmic prestige upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

I think something that always crosses my mind is how loyal a guy like Abyss is to all of this.

I'm guessing his age plays a big role in this or maybe he is just brain dead.

His black hole slam is one of the coolest finishers imo but it's crazy this guy is still in TNA.

WWE wanted him at one point but he stayed.

There's literally no reason for WWE to want Abyss. He's not good in the ring, he's old, he's not in good shape, they can't/won't use his history of tacks/glass/barbed wire etc to get him over as a monster, there are no dream matches he's a part of, and he doesn't have either the name recognition from the casual fans or the indy cred from the smart fans. There's literally no feud they could put him in that wouldn't be better with Braun Strowman instead (and I really don't like Strowman very much).

Well, he was last seen at the Hardy compound, so maybe he'll come in as part of the rumored Hardy deal.
