I follow the angry bastard on Twitter and usually agree with him. But if he has agreed to work with TNA/GFW again, he is the ultimate carny. Which he's spent a ridiculous amount of time railing against. So gently caress Corny.

Same cut they've taken for years from exclusive talent. In 08-09ish bookings for formerly popular indie draws on the roster dried up because TNA was asking way too much.

What will Low Ki's excise be this time?

quote:

Numerous sources have confirmed to PWInsider.com that former X-Division champion Low Ki is gone from Global Force Wrestling, having departed over the course of this week's TV tapings.

There are several different accounts making the rounds. One version is that there it was a financial dispute that led to the departure. Another version (from sources within GFW) states that Ki was not happy with the creative for him going forward as the original plan for him leading into Bound for Glory was to be part of an Ultimate X match while he wanted to be in the GFW championship mix.

The one thing all accounts are in agreement with is that Ki made the decision to leave the company. He was not let go. A GFW source stated the departure was "amicable."

Ki was slated to face Alberto el Patron at last Thursday's Destination X, but that match was canceled due to Patron's suspension leading to him being stripped of the GFW championship. Ki will appear in the Gauntlet that headlines tomorrow's episode of Impact Wrestling that will crown the new champion.

Low Ki, 37, was the first Ring of Honor champion and has had numerous runs with TNA/GFW over the years as well as runs with WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, among others.

Saying that the days leading up to the live special he was tweeting constantly about how he was finally getting a world title shot after waiting 12 years and how it was such a big deal for him. Kind of made him look a wee bit of a fanny when they changed the booking.

Yeah. I don't blame anyone for not watching the programming, but even just reading the spoilers I posted around that time, everything looked like (pre-incident) it'd lead to Del Rio vs Low Ki for the belt during this set of tapings. That was the big angle

I don't blame GFW at all for abandoning ship on it all when and why they did, but he was the one who lost out in this situation
