WWE News: Whatís The Latest On His TNA/WWE Status?
By Michael Cahill (Featured Columnist) on February 17, 2011

Has the TNA website reveled his true status with the company?

The TNA website has removed Sting from their site. This is an early indication that he is no longer with the company and that the talks have broke down to bring him back.

Either that or itís the swerve the TNA executives want to do to make everyone think heís coming back. Itís a typical wrestling move. Why anyone bothers to consult the website of a major wrestling promotion is beyond me. Wrestling companies and wrestlers are that couple that keeps breaking up and swearing itís over and then getting right back together. You canít trust them.

So where does this leave Sting and the WWE? No one knows for sure, but you have to assume that this is the last time that Sting and WWE can do this song and dance. He has always hung his hat on the fact that he has never wrestled a day in the WWE so unless he needs the payday(which if I havenít heard heís hard up for cash) Iím guessing that Sting isnít really interested and is just using this to squeeze a little more money out of TNA.

If he does come to the WWE, heís going to go against the Undertaker because you donít bring Sting in to take on Mark Henry. I think the WWE isnít saying anything because the buzz, whether itís true or not, is good for the overall product. But you can expect to see a lot of surprises before Wrestlemania, but seeing Sting in the WWE is not going to be one of them.

WWE & TNA Ratings From The UK
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.23.2011

How are the shows doing?

- Here are the UK ratings report for the week ending February 13th:

The TNA Impact on Challenge TV in the UK (US airdate February 3rd; aired in the UK on February 8th). Impact drew 134,000 viewers, which is their highest UK rating to date. Problem was, it was #5 on Challenge TV that week - the top rated show was a re-run of the quiz-show Catchphrase which drew 161,000 viewers on Wednesday evening. For reference, the final Impact on Bravo did draw 37,000 (airing Christmas Day), which would make that an increase of 262% (comparing Christmas Day at 9pm to 10pm-midnight on a Tuesday night!)

Former WWE/TNA wrestler Matt Hardy arrested for yet another DWI
Tiny by Keith Harris on Sep 14, 2011 8:53 PM EDT in TNA

In a really sad and scary state of affairs, former WWE and TNA wrestler Matt Hardy has been arrested for yet another DWI, less than a month after his previous one. Matt claimed that miraculously all his vices were gone after that car accident, only to be rushed to hospital a few days later after falling down his stairs at the end of a drug fuelled psychosis where he had trashed his house and published a bizarre YouTube video blaming it all on ghosts. He lost whatever sympathy he had left with hardcore wrestling fans by publishing a fake suicide note on YouTube and Twitter, and made things worse by issuing a bogus apology after the fact. As always, Matt claimed that his hospital emergency had made him change for the better, but that was clearly just a part of his latest con.

It's basically the same old story. Matt was pulled over by police near Raleigh Airport after they had received complaints about him driving erratically (with TMZ claiming he almost hit another car on several occasions). The police officer involved then noted that he "had slow and slurred speech, sleepy eyes and a very lackadaisical demeanour", so he asked Matt to walk in a straight line, which he completely messed up on several attempts. So he was made to take a breathalyser test, which showed that he had absolutely no alcohol in his system and proved that booze wasn't the cause of his intoxication. As David Bixenspan of Bleacher Report discovered, another police officer later did a drug evaluation on Matt and determined him to be impaired by a central nervous system depressant, leading to his arrest. For more information on this story please read the police report of the incident and subsequent mug shot that TMZ has released.

Continuing his pattern of behaviour, Matt went on Twitter and protested his innocence in two consecutive tweets before the news had even broke:

For the first time in my life, I was framed.. 0, 0, and O.. I'm truly appalled. This will not go down without a fight! Looks like I've got a bull's eye on my head.

For the first time in my life, I've been gotten! WOW!! 0, 0, and 0.. I'm truly appalled. This will not go down without a fight!

Hopefully, these charges lead to Matt being punished like his brother Jeff was and breaking this cycle of reckless conduct.

TNA: The Road Ahead of WWE
By:Kevin Berge(Contributor) on September 17, 2011

For years, TNA Impact Wrestling has been a lagging business. They have always sat in second place behind the longer standing company, WWE.

This was not due to lack of talent, lack of support or lack of high profile competitors.

The problems were small and festering, seemingly guided by poor decisions with the company's higher management.

TNA made the decision to pull in talents as big as Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan. They would bring in the legendary booking ability of Vince Russo.

Many may laugh at the way I portray these guys, but this is the way the management saw these guys. They really thought they needed these men to create moments and a spotlight on their business.

Two days ago, though, I finally saw the business that Impact Wrestling could become.

TNA had a great show start to finish, even though it decided to have a Flair vs. Sting match as their main event that was at least 10 years too late for being a real main event.

What we saw last night was a slow changing of the guard. This story with Hogan, Sting and Flair was the beginning of the end. The end of a long reign for these stars, who are twice as old as many competitors in that ring today, is finally coming.

Why is change coming?

Well, let's look into:

1. What makes TNA unique.

2. What TNA has done right.

3. What TNA still has to do.

Through these aspects we may find that goal at the end of the very long tunnel.

Kurt Angle Talks TNA Brand Change, Going Back To WWE, Almost Fighting Kimbo Slice & More

Kurt Angle Talks TNA Brand Change, Going Back To WWE, Almost Fighting Kimbo Slice & More

Source: The Void
Mike Shaw has a great interview on with Kurt Angle. In the interview, he claimed that he almost fought Kimbo Slice in the UFC and more. Here are some highlights:

The TNA brand change: "I love the change in brand. I went to Dixie Carter about a year ago and said "We've got to change some things. We're starting to do too much talking and not enough wrestling on TV." Also there are a lot of difficulties in our matches, because many of them didn't have finishes Ė there was always a DQ or a run-in. I told her, 'If you want to get the viewers watching and you want to get our numbers up, then we need great matches with great finishes.'

"It was like the only time we had finishes were at the pay-per-views, they were always protecting the wrestlers by not having a finish, but in wrestling, anyone can beat anybody on any given day, so why not have finishes on TV? People want to see the finish of the match. They don't want to see matches get DQd because someone ran in or someone used a chair. That was an issue I had, they started cleaning that up and started having finishes and ratings went up, thank God. Now we're doing more wrestling, less talk and delivering great matches.

"We are wrestling. Wrestling matters. We even changed our name to Impact Wrestling. We went the opposite way to the WWE. They said 'We're entertainment,' but the thing is, you can't take the wrestling out of pro-wrestling because no matter what angle, what storyline, or what beef you have with your opponent, you always end up in the ring. That's the climax Ė you end up in the ring at a pay-per-view."

On sports entertainers: "I find it offensive when (WWE chairman & CEO) Vince McMahon makes everybody use that term. We train to wrestle. Sure it would be nice to have great actors on TV for the storylines, but wrestling has to come first. The acting comes second. You need to be able to cut a good promo, you need to be able to have a good character with charisma, you need to be able to act fairly well, but most importantly you need to be a great wrestler.

"I've seen guys who've made a great living from wrestling alone, who don't even talkÖ like The Undertaker. All he says is 'You. Me. Summerslam.' And there you go, that's your match. You can do all the acting and all the entertaining you want, but at the end, you've gotta wrestle."

On his future: "The future at TNA is wrestling, wrestling, wrestling, wrestling," said Angle. "I've signed a new three year deal with TNA. The rumour was I was going back to WWE, but that's not happening. I'm staying here until I retire.

"A lot of people say 'Why don't you go back to WrestleMania and retire there?' and that's not a bad idea. But I look at it and think 'I want to stay in TNA for the rest of my life.' I'm always going to have a job there. Either as an ambassador, talent relations, a writer, a booker, maybe office personnel, I'm always going to have a job there. Why walk away from that just to have a retirement match at WrestleMania? It is a big deal Ė I think WrestleMania is the grandpa of them all and it'd be a great way to go out, but it's not worth it to me to risk my lifetime job at TNA."

Angle also talks about whether he still watches WWE, the Knockouts, his spat with Randy Orton and much more, you can check out the full interview by clicking here.
