- There have been a lot of signs lately that Vince Russo is working with TNA again. From an apparent obsession with The Beautiful People to odd title changes, his trademark gauntlet matches and more, all signs have pointed to Russo being involved creatively, regardless of what people in the TNA offices are saying. When talk of Russo comes up, people within TNA get quiet and try to change the story. There’s been a feeling that if Russo isn’t writing the original scripts for Impact, then he’s getting passed scripts to do re-writes.

PWInsider now confirms that Russo is indeed working for TNA again. He is on TNA’s payroll as a consultant. Russo has been offering ideas and doing critiques of the TNA TV shows.

TNA creative is currently headed by John Gaburick. His team of writers is made up of David Lagana, Christy Hemme and Matt Conway. Gaburick sets the direction and comes up with ideas, with the help of the team. They then put it on paper and write the script. Apparently Russo is making changes to some original ideas before passing the script back to Gaburick.

- As noted earlier, Vince Russo is working for the TNA creative team as a consultant. Word is that Eric Bischoff is also doing storyline consulting. Apparently there is less than three months left on both of their contracts.

This company never learns. EB I have less of a problem with, but why on earth they've hired Russo again is beyond anyone. Haven't watched an episode of Impact in about five weeks myself, just been reading the spoilers & such.

That explains why Impact has been getting progressively worse over the last month or so.

I do share his obsession with The Beautiful People, though. :datass:

I have no idea what they are really talking about. To me he was just like any other wrestler. Gave some decent promos and had a snake. Don't see the big deal tbh.

A vulgar display of ignorance.

Have you seen the wrestling doc Beyond the Mat?he features a fair bit, hes had a terrible personal life. Hints at topping himself so I doubt much has changed.


Yeah but I thought he might cheer up a bit for his induction. He does at the end. I did like his talk though, just very sad.



Sad? I think he was at peace more than anything. I'd say he used to be in denial but not anymore. Very happy for him.

Because everyone knows he's had a hard life and a lot of people want to hear that he's turned a corner - myself included. I'd rather someone spoke about the journey that brought them to the Hall of Fame than describing something I could go back and watch on the WWE Network.

Yeah he talks about not wanting to commit suicide, about wanting to be able to wrestle but he can't, how wrestling was the only thing he loved. He begged for death, etc.

How about talking about his best feuds, some colourful stories?



The hall of fame isn't about cutting promos. It's about life after the business. For Jake and Scott anyway. For YEARS Jake was the prime example people would use for "wrestlers institutionalised by the business". Beyond the Mat and the drama The Wrestler were pretty much centered around his shitheap of a life at that time so for him to get out of that and then cut promos about wrestling feuds would be greatly disingenuous. He was honest, humble and spoke from the heart and was the star of the night IMO.

Don't worry Manny. You can both think of me, thinking about Velvet.

Oh I am more than capable of doing that. But if it is all the same to you, I will just think about you.

What were they expecting with the EY storyline?

Awful.

Does anybody have a quick guide on how to get access to the WWE network? Without looking into it in too much detail it's not available currently in the UK so I'm guessing it's some kind of proxy?

Btw, long time no speak all! :P

When I did it I put in a US address on my account on the WWE site, then paid using PayPal. I'm not 100% sure but I think after that the on demand stuff works fine, but you need a VPN to watch the live stream. I use Unblock US for that.

You still get the "not available from your location" stuff on demand sometimes but you can bypass it with a plugin like Hola and then disable the plugin again so it loads faster.
Which is strawberry floating great because it means I don't have to pay for Unblockus until I really want to see a ppv live

Total Divas is just so phony. John Uso apparently has a rift with his dad Rikishi. Who is shown wrestling in an Uso shirt at old school raw. They couldn't have a believable story? The Fatus are all about family.
