I can't really remember. Last time I can recall seeing him was when RVD was still there.

Watching TNA Genesis. God, Dixie Carter is so insufferable as a TV character. I don't why on earth you'd want her to be the first thing you see for 5 minutes on the show. The new beginning is exactly the same as it was before, people talking and not a thing of interest is happening in the ring.

She has tried very hard to be the mix of Stephanie McMahon and Vickie Guerrero. She can draw heel heat pretty well similar to Vickie at this point IMO.

Speaking of TNA, here's an image from their show last night




When I was in college, the teen mentor center that I interned for had a karaoke fund raiser event on a random Wednesday night. No lie we had at least 3 times the turnout

Their roster too. Sting and Angle should go to WWE to finish their careers infront of decent crowds making good money. Anderson should go because he sucks. They need to try to build around; Storm, Roode, Gunner, Magnus, Bully Ray, Joe, Aries, Sabin. Bring back six-sides too, be different.

Ang yeah, Sting should make up his mind and take a chance on Vince and Mark for that dream match already.

Sting is still very capable in and out of the ring (I think that his ability to carry a lesser opponent to a good match is greater now than ever before), so I'd like to see him go to next mania, or at least SummerSlam so he can go out on top (perhaps against Wyatt, or Punk) instead of just another part of the streak.

I don't see what value Anderson brings. Outside of the microphone gimmick, he seems completely average, and sometimes less than average in every aspect.

I haven't watched wrestling in a while.

WTF happened to TNA? They looked like a normal wrestling show competing against the WWE with full venues on television. I remember them being very popular at one time.

That doesn't look good? Did that happen overnight?

The president brought in Hulk Hogan and Erick Bischoff on seven figure salaries to run the company, they did the same thing they did to WCW, hired their family and pissed all over the fans by destroying everything they like. I used to be a HUGE TNA fan, watched every ppv, bought dvd's, watched tv every week. Now I dvr it and watch about 5-15mins at best.

It took about 4 years, but the last two have been severe decline.

Wow.

Is that picture a bad week or do they consistently draw that many? It would be way awkward to air a show with so few people in attendance.

It was just a house-show. They taped in Orlando, and always have a full-house (usually the same people week-in, week-out). Their last taping was in I believe Huntsville Alabama, and it was a good crowd.

Found some old FIP dvd's that I forgot I had. Bought them from RoH for $2.50 when they were having a sale, a lot of them are double-features so that's $1.25 a show-great value, some are also from grab-bags. Gonna watch some over the next few day, got some good matches like Punk vs Danielson which I'm excited for.

TNA's streak of poor live event attendance continued this weekend. They ran a show in Albany, Georgia that drew around 250-300 fans in an arena that has the capacity for 10,000 fans.

Batista

Looked like a fatter, smaller Dwayne Johnson

Can't wait for the Rumble though

Punk entering at #1, I expect him to be there until right near the end, not sure if he'll win it though. Imagine the pop for Bryan if he won it

I just thought of this after watching Raw last night.

Batista should win the Rumble. Orton will beat Cena at Rumble.

Brock vs. Show will end in a double turn with Heyman aligning with Show and attacking Lesnar. Paul could see Show as someone who is just as dominant as Lesnar, but is more controllable. The two will feud with the payoff being at Wrestlemania in some sort of No Holds Barred match.

In the middle of that Show/Lesnar feud, Lesnar was promised a title match at EC. Somehow, Show will get involved in the match to make it Orton vs. Show vs. Lesnar at EC. Orton will come into the match as the underdog and end up retaining and giving him momentum heading into his Wrestlemania match vs. Batista.

Meanwhile, the actual Elimination Chamber match will have the stipulation where the winner gets to face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30. This hypes up the match so much more knowing that Undertaker's opponent earned the right to face rather the opponent just be chosen. Cena, Bryan, Punk, Wyatt, ADR, and maybe Sheamus if he's healthy, if not, Mysterio. The match should come down to Bryan and Cena with Bryan winning. This sets up Bryan vs. Undertaker at Mania, this match can skyrocket Daniel Bryan's career, even if he does come up short.

Cena can go off and feud with the Wyatt Family leading to Cena vs. Bray. The idea could be to put the Wyatt Family over as monster heels in the build-up and end with Cena conquering them at Mania.

Punk can go back to feuding with the Authority, leading to Triple H vs. CM Punk. This can be a Lumberjack match with all the Authority's goons around ringside. This can end with Roman Reigns finally turning on the Shield and become a babyface.

WWE Championship
Randy Orton (c) vs. Batista

The Streak
Undertaker vs. Daniel Bryan

John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

Lumberjack Match
Triple H vs. CM Punk

No Holds Barred
Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show
