There's about one wrestler's worth of in-ring talent and one wrestler's worth of promo talent between all 5 of those.

Good they got Matt Morgan back. Can't wait for another 5 years of the announcers calling him a can't-miss wrestling prospect while he waddles awkwardly around the ring in expensive jeans.

And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open.

I thought Chris Masters was good once he slimmed down a bit so he could move well.

Well, I guess you can't say they're not trying.

By a certain definition of trying.

He's right. Example: "Many wrestlers on the TNA roster find the process of collecting money from the company for their time exasperating and trying."

I wonder how much of wrestling history is dudes just trying to use money marks to get their buddies paydays, rather than actually trying to put on a good product

You could probably actually apply that to all of business

Masters was great late in his WWE run. Unfortunately by then the audience were never going to take him seriously. Another one ruined by Vince/Stephanie getting a huge boner at his muscles and calling him up way before he were ready.

I'm not sure if this should be the latest entry on TNA's We Just Need list or like tenth in line behind a cavalcade of other lovely wrestlers.

Also, we just need Konnan.

Seeing a lot of parallels with the Trump administration here, too.

I really hope Double J has a TNA version of Mar-a-Lago. Which I guess would just be a private craft services table.

Apparently the belt was originally supposed to go to Galloway, but they were too late offering him a new contract. Then Bully Ray was almost signed to get the belt, but it fell through at the last minute.

Apparently they offered it to a third person before ADR as well. Ryback would be my guess but no one knows for sure.

At least when Del Rio won the world title, the belt still clearly said TNA. I don't know if that's changed in the day or two since

At the next show they'll swerve us by announcing that he only won the TNA world title and that the Impact Wrestling world title is still up for grabs.
