Impact Wrestling Must Be ‘Broken’ Before It Is Fixed

broken-matt-hardy-brother-nero-maxel-tna-impact-wrestling-bound-for-gloryImpact Wrestling has been the center of many rumors the last week. Most surrounded the impending sale of the promotion. As of this post, majority owner Dixie Carter is still in control.

The ‘Bound For Glory’ pay-per-view went off as planned and it was a pretty solid show overall. Carter must have received funding from one of the groups wanting to buy Impact Wrestling (or TNA Wrestling) from her.

Billy Corgan (yes, the Smashing Pumpkins lead singer) is currently trying to purchase the promotion. He’s currently the President of Impact Ventures, the company that owns Impact/TNA. He acquired that title after letting Impact Ventures borrow money for a few television tapings.

Broken Matt Hardy May Have Just Saved ‘Impact Wrestling’

final deletion broken matt hardy impact wrestling tna maxel funnyI know what you’re thinking, TNA is still relevant? Well, they haven’t been in quite some time. I’m a huge wrestling fan and I’m still guilty of just reading spoilers to avoid wasting two hours every week.

Something special has been happening on TNA’s “Impact Wrestling” over the last two months. It involves two wrestlers even casual wrestling fans are familiar with, The Hardy Boyz.

Before I explain what happened on last night’s episode of “Impact Wrestling”, I need to explain how this ‘Broken Matt Hardy’ storyline started.

Matt Hardy was the TNA Heavyweight champion earlier this year, but lost it in a match with Drew Galloway. He lost a rematch and he went to feud with his brother Jeff. They had an ‘I Quit’ match in which both were knocked out and Matt was taken to the hospital…this is when Matt Hardy became broken.

Kurt Angle Arrested for DWI…Again

Kurt-Angle-Mugshot-2013TNA superstar and former gold medal Olympic wrestler Kurt Angle was arrested for DWI in Texas last night. This is his fourth alcohol-related arrest in six years.

He went to Twitter this morning and vowed to seek the help he needs and to enter rehab. He added, “I can beat this” and we hope he does as well.

The timing of Angle’s arrest couldn’t come at a worse time professionally. He is set to be the second inductee into the ‘TNA Hall of Fame’ in October and is currently in the middle of a major storyline on Impact Wrestling television program. He has a large role in a stable called the ‘Main Event Mafia’ which is feuding with another stable, ‘Aces & Eights’. It is unknown at this time if he will be going into an inpatient or outpatient rehab program.

We breakdown some of the events in Angle’s life that started his downward spiral. Continue reading

Ric Flair to Appear at ICP’s "Gathering of the Juggalos"

Ric Flair is the most famous heel in professional wrestling history, but he’s currently out of a job. TNA Wrestling recently parted ways with him.

At 63, his professional wrestling options are limited. WWE and TNA find themselves in the middle of a legal battle and WWE is currently staying away from “The Nature Boy” until that calms down.

In major need of a paycheck, Flair has agreed to appear at the Insane Clown Posse’s yearly “Gathering of the Juggalos” from August 8th – 12th in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois. Continue reading

Kurt Angle Caught With HGH

1996 Olympic gold medal winner and former WWE star and current TNA wrestler, Kurt Angle, was arrested this morning for possession of HGH and violating court-ordered protection in Pittsburgh, PA. He was driving with his girlfriend at the time he was pulled over. He has came out and said that he has a prescription for the drug, but he was still charged with possession.

The HGH drug in question is Hygetropin, which has 191 residues that lay naturally in the body, which is hard to detect in tests. It is used to treat people who have hormone deficiency or people who have taken HGH for years and don’t naturally produce enough. It is not surprising that Angle was caught with this, since he has been tied to HGH and steroid busts in the past. He has had trouble with pain-killers and has had some personal problems recently with the recent divorce of his wife, Karen Angle (pictured below). She is currently rumored to be dating fellow TNA star, Jeff Jarrett.

Ouch, Angle had a rough year!

It is commonly believed that many WWE stars go to TNA Wrestling, since there are no drug tests. The WWE has instituted a Wellness Policy a few years ago after the sudden deaths of many of their former and current wrestlers. WWE has made it clear that anyone who violates the policy will be suspended and/or terminated from employment. In addition to the suspension and/or termination, the WWE will issue a press release, so your name will be out there for the public to know. Many wrestlers who have been suspended for Wellness violations have found their way to TNA.

I’m not surprised that Angle got caught with HGH, not one bit. He seems like a guy who has nothing to lose, so what if he gets caught with HGH, he’s a glorified actor who relies on his physical abilities to put on a show. He isn’t breaking home-run records or scoring touchdowns, he’s grabbing men in tights and throwing them around. I love wrestling and have been watching it since I was old enough to remember. I mean no ill-regard to the industry, but Angle is a grown man and a one-man team. If he takes HGH, no one is getting hurt but himself and possibly his family if he faces a future of former wrestlers like Eddie Guerrero, Rick Rude, The British Bulldog, or Mr. Perfect. They all died far too young and I would hate anyone to see the same fate. Clean up your act, Kurt Angle. I hope they take your gold medal away.
