They’re sold shows. Though last time their stadium world tour still got canned halfway through for poor ticket sales.

It was reported last week that Brandi Rhodes had parted ways with Global Force Wrestling after joining the company last year. According to F4WOnline.com, she left after the company granted her request to be released from her contract.

On her own, Rhodes landed a gig on a non-wrestling television show in Atlanta, Georgia and GFW wanted a percentage of her earnings. She refused and asked for her release.

Rhodes plans to continue wrestling for Ring of Honor and various independent promotions.

DIRECTIVE 236: Promote pro-social values


Like Magnus said, how could you have any respect for yourself as a performer and sign the new GFW contracts? Give them 100% of your merch rights plus they control your bookings and want a cut of it. All for the privilege of being on POP TV on a show no one watches and/or even discusses online at this point. To sign that type of contract, you must consider yourself unemployable by every other wrestling promotion in the world. You must completely, totally loving suck and know it in the core of your very soul and/or be one of the absolute biggest dumbasses alive.

So is that the type of contract Moose just signed an extension for?

Vince didn't have any money in The Scorpion King or the Rundown.

We've heard so many stories from guys who leave WWE and say it was so hard to take outside projects, let's not pretend TNA is any shittier here.

For me the difference is that WWE is directly responsible for Rock and anybody else who gets movies' initial fame.

Ain't nobody gettin' hired in Hollywood because they blew minds in TNA or GFW or WTF or whatever they call themselves now.

Of course, those guys only get their highly paid Sunglass Hut jobs at the Florida Mall because they are employed by TNGFAW, so naturally they deserve a cut.

Well yes but you see he wore the suit in protest over being forced to work a date in Fukushima, and he double pinkie swears he quit and they didn't fire him over it.

quote:

“So, it was, to me, it was my silent protest by leaving New Japan, and it wasn’t in the sense that I’m a ‘hitman’, it was in the sense that, I’m ‘The Professional’. This is my last time here, I’m going out with a bang, but I’m doing it in a fashion that everyone is going to respect it.”

Looking professional when committing genocide is essential. This is mostly achieved by using a beret.

Olive drab colour ensures the genocider will remain hidden from his prey until it's too late for them to do anything.
