Jeremy : (11 October 2017 - 04:46 AM) Lol good call, slightly ghastly here. Hope some of you hockey lot take a bit and watch the pregame ceremonies from the home opener for VGK. Wonderful stuff. Also, UNLV football had an outstanding tribute on Saturday... ended up getting crushed on the field, but the ceremony was great. Do yourselves a favor and check em - ESPN probably has them on dot com :)
Turn_The_Page : (10 October 2017 - 01:56 AM) glad to hear you're ok!
KingOfMyWorld : (06 October 2017 - 09:20 PM) Are you sure you aren't a ghost... I mean this is a ghost town...
Jeremy : (06 October 2017 - 02:02 AM) I'm alive guys :) Still wonderful to be in Las Vegas
KingOfMyWorld : (06 September 2017 - 08:28 PM) Anthem already wants out of wrestling according to Sports Illustrated and PWInsider confirms... dun dun dun...
KingOfMyWorld : (06 September 2017 - 02:44 AM) The more things change at TNA... the more they stay the same...
Jeremy : (26 August 2017 - 08:20 PM) We had about a 70% eclipse in Vegas, but it was storming so it was dark anyway and we didn't see the sun that day :(
KingOfMyWorld : (23 August 2017 - 12:18 AM) I fight the spam as I can... so... anybody else in the Eclipse area? I was up in the national forest and it was something else to see, it was more the color it turned and the bugs going crazy thinking it was night that was the neat part.
Jeremy : (13 August 2017 - 08:56 PM) :(
Philip C. : (12 August 2017 - 05:43 PM) We need to get busy here agin for Summerslam haha. There's more spam bots than real people posting at the minute :(
Jeremy : (31 July 2017 - 12:57 AM) Anybody ever play HuniePop? This game is hilariously awesome

KingOfMyWorld : (15 July 2017 - 04:02 PM) :bye:
Jeremy : (15 July 2017 - 03:20 PM) Hey!
KingOfMyWorld : (07 June 2017 - 08:55 AM) They made a variation this week with Big Cass getting attacked, I think it's a swerve though...
Jeremy : (06 June 2017 - 02:34 AM) That 2002 program (I think?) was when I first started getting back into wrestling after like '97-'98. I missed the good parts of the Attitude Era <_<
KingOfMyWorld : (01 June 2017 - 07:32 AM) The Enzo and Cass storyline mimics the HBK and HHH storyline from when HHH smashed HBK into the car window.
KingOfMyWorld : (01 June 2017 - 07:06 AM) I'm only keeping up with the weekly shows through youtube at this point, still watch the network ppv's but usually not live.
Jeremy : (01 June 2017 - 02:16 AM) I haven't watched Raw in a while and I wondered when they'd turn Cass on Enzo and begin the push. Guess it's going now?
KingOfMyWorld : (30 May 2017 - 10:40 PM) Does anybody not believe Big Cass is the one who attacked Enzo... I mean come on...

In Topic: TNA is DOOMED 2017 Edition (TNA|IMPACT Dies, GFW Dropped? El Patron Out? Jarr...

06 September 2017 - 02:42 AM

As noted, GFW announced today that Jeff Jarrett is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the company to focus on personal matters. It was noted in the announcement that Jarrett will be available to the company on a consultative basis as needed.
 
We also noted how the decision on Jarrett taking time off was made just a few hours before GFW posted the announcement on their website, and how Jarrett posted an optimistic early morning tweet that indicated he knew nothing of the leave that was to be announced. PWInsider reports that Anthem’s Ed Nordholm made the decision today and that he personally met with Jarrett in Nashville, Tennessee this afternoon. Jarrett was set to host a NFL Fantasy Draft with members of the GFW staff this evening but that was nixed and the staffers are hosting the draft at the GFW offices instead.
 
Regarding what led to the leave, the feeling is that unhappiness with Jarrett involving his “erratic behavior” was a driving factor in Nordholm’s decision. It appears they were not unhappy with the company’s creative direction with Jarrett as Chief Creative Officer. The situation had been building for months and the final tipping point was AAA’s TripleMania event in Mexico in late August. Jarrett, who recently put on weight, was not in the best of shape for that event and apparently stumbled down the ring steps right before wrestling in a battle royal for just a few minutes. He also took a while getting to the ring. Jarrett represented GFW in the match, along with Moose and Bobby Lashley, and was reportedly heckling fans and throwing tortillas into the crowd, which actually somewhat fit his gimmick in Mexico but still had people talking.
 
Jarrett’s condition at TripleMania led to a lot of people wondering if he needed time off. Nordholm witnessed the behavior as he was in attendance for the show. There was also an incident at a GFW TV taping several months back where Jarrett was yelling at Bob Ryder and that incident is said to be the beginning of the problems that led to Nordholm’s decision. One source noted to PWInsider that the situation is “far uglier” than anyone realizes.
 
Another source noted to PWInsider that Jarrett was “not blameless” but that there was also “blame to be thrown in all directions” of the company. The same source claimed that a lot of things Jarrett had been publicly criticized for were just him towing the company line and following “marching orders” out of loyalty to Anthem after they brought him back into the company, including when he defended Anthem in the beef with The Hardys. There’s been a feeling among some that Jarrett had been trying hard to step in between Nordholm and the wrestling side of the company due to the belief among many that Nordholm didn’t “get” the business. One source pointed to how the company put effort into bringing Alberto El Patron in as a surprise for his debut, only for Nordholm to tweet a photo of Patron before he came out, spoiling the surprise. The source admitted that Jarrett needed a break but noted that Jarrett had been “bending over backward” to try and balance things between Anthem and GFW, adding that Jarrett “desperately wanted his company back and wanted to prove to everyone he was right all along with his vision.”
 
We noted before that the company was working to determine who would tend to Jarrett’s duties while he’s gone. PWInsider adds that no decision has been made regarding creative changes and the writing team, which Jarrett put together, still includes Scott D’Amore and Dutch Mantel. Jim Cornette is also still with the company as of this evening. There was speculation that “Big” John Gaburick, who still works with the company as a consultant, was retained as a back-up plan in case the Jarrett regime did not work out.
 
On a related note, a source reported to PWInsider that the GFW – Anthem merger was “nowhere near as completed” as they have touted publicly. Trademarks for Global Force Wrestling and GFW are still under the ownership of the Global Force Wrestling LLC that Jarrett launched in 2014. It’s possible that the GFW letters will disappear from Impact Wrestling if Jarrett doesn’t return to the company for some reason.
 
It was also reported that Alberto El Patron’s status with the company is up in the air as Nordholm was willing to let him go after the Orlando airport incident with Paige in July. Jarrett was hands-on in calming the situation and now that Jarrett is gone, and Patron reportedly has less than a year left on his deal, the planned return at the next set of tapings may be off. We noted before that Jarrett vs. Patron had been discussed for the Bound For Glory pay-per-view in November but that match is probably not happening now.

Anthem and Impact Wrestling today announced TNA is dead, Impact Wrestling is dead and Jeff Jarrett gets the last laugh by using a reverse merger of the company with Global Force Wrestling and the company will use the GFW name going forward. 

 

 

In a move designed to distance itself from the financial struggles and legal drama that hung over its brand, Anthem Sports announced last week it has purchased Nashville-based Global Force Wrestling.

 
The move signals the end of TNA, the professional wrestling league that once served as home to legends Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair and as a launching pad for future stars A.J. Styles and Samoa Joe.
 
Anthem Sports, the Canadian company that also owns the Fight Network, will rebrand its wrestling league as GFW and Nashville native Jeff Jarrett will helm the creative aspects of the promotion. Its staple weekly program on Pop TV will continue to be called “Impact.”
 
The rebranding comes almost 15 years to the day that Jarrett and his father Jerry Jarrett launched TNA. The wrestling promotion ended up under the control of Dixie Carter, endured a turnstile of cable television partners and garnered negative headlines for unpaid bills, unpaid talent and state tax liens.

 

A lot more story with that at The Tennessean.

So... I screwed up my sleeping schedule but once I started I didn't want to stop, it was a great show, hoping for a second season although that is no longer a given with Netflix.
