Doesn't Vince hate people from the South, though? Like, if he treats his good friend Jim Ross like poo poo I can only imagine what he does to Dixie

It's really weird, considering Vince's slight southern accent that pops out occasionally.

Post-divorce how many times has Kurt been arrested?

I wasn't saying it was all her fault, I was referring to the fact that he seems to have completely cleaned himself up while she's Making Impact Great Again. Had they stayed together, there's no way either of them would be even relatively okay.

If you think Karen Jarrett has more of a role in "Being Involving With TNA" than Jeff loving Jarrett, then you're a complete loving idiot.

I didn't say that. At all. My reference to her "Making Impact Great Again" was that her contribution to the company has been drunkenly yelling at the women's roster every week.

EDIT: Watching the most recent OSW Review episode of Destination X 2007 and Jeremy Borash used to be kinda cute. That's loving depressing.

Oh yes, that was loving disgusting. I've never watched much TNA and most of what I know has been from SA, Brian & Vinny, LOLTNA, and now OSW. I had no idea how abhorrent it was. And we're only talking ten years ago, not thirty.

I can't find the video on YouTube right now, but it wasn't that simple. There was actually an entire segment where Bischoff, Flair, Hogan, and maybe someone else(?) all taunted the "Official TNA Doctor" and then laughed him out of the room when he tried to inform them that concussions, and specifically chairshots, were incredibly dangerous. And then the very next match was the Homicide/Terry debacle to which you're referring.

I really hope Rob Terry is okay these days.

Are you sure you're not mixing that up with the Ken Anderson concussion storyline? The one where Jeff Hardy(who was high out of his mind) blasted him in the back of his head with a chair has you had concerned citizen Matt Morgan, who had previously be booting people's heads into ring posts, come to his aid to tell us how serious concussions are.

This, of course, was happening at the same time Eric Young was having his comedy concussion angle where he suffered a head injury and went from being a serious heel to a crazy wacky comedy face.
