TNA released a bunch of talents yesterday to cutting costs. Notable names are Madison Rayne, Christian York and Crimson. Taz, who was also on the chopping block, stays at the end though.

No real loses here. I wanted to see Crimson evolve more, but i guess it just wasn't going to happen.

Maybe they're just dragging it out to see if they can get Sting eventually.

Of course a lot of people want him and Taker to have a match, but UT needs to wrestle people who can actually carry him to a good match while he does his signature stuff as the icing on the cake. Sting's old ass + Taker's old ass would be a disaster IMO

I disagree, I think Stings work the last couple of years has been excellent, and he's really evolved into a ring general, able to carry people to good matches and I really don't think Taker needs to be carried.
If Vince can get Sting then they really need to do this match. They'd need Sting to go back to hangin' in the rafters though. Current Sting, the guy who is pretty much Steve wouldn't work.

I'm pissed they let go of Joey Ryan. It sucked they did nothing with him after his big angle and match with Snow.
The rest were al pretty smart releases, when Crimson came back to do the j.o.b to Joe Park I thought "Hey Crimson is back, and he doesn't suck on the mic, and he's got a less bland look, maybe he's finally gonna get it together and fulfil his potential..." and then I saw him throw a punch.

Yeah they've been cutting talent left and right since the end of last year. Surprised to see Madison Rayne go.

Wow that's f*ckin low. Madison Rayne, who's been loyal to the company all this time, is pregnant and expecting her first child within the next month and they fire her. Guess they gotta save money to give the ever-valuable Brooke Hogan

Oh well that's a relief. I know TNA's got some f'd up priorities but I was hoping they were better than that.

I remember WWE dropped Dawn Marie when they found out she was pregnant (and couldn't wear bikinis for them anymore) and she ended up suing them for it

Nvm I was wrong it was Hendrix who asked to be released.

Did Dawn Marie win that lawsuit?

Vince Mcmahon still loves the big guys. I think they will sign crimson, and put him in WWE NXT.

They ended up settling out of court. It's no secret that Vince is a dog when it comes to the treatment of women lol...but I figured since TNA's run by a woman that stuff like that wouldn't go down

Vince ruined the Ryback character. Now's he's officially a jobber to the stars.

Crimson is too slender by Vince's taste.

I'd like to see him get a shot in WWE though...

TNA doesn't know how to use its young guys. They dropped the ball with Elijah Burke when he was over, and they didn't properly use Crimson.

The Pope is not that young while I don't think Crimson really has "it" factor to be at the next level either. Crimson though is worth being picked up by WWE.
