I mention this mostly because I wanted to point out that Jeff Hardy is listed as 6'0", 225. I know exaggerating heights and weights is a very old wrestling tradition, but does that strike anyone as just a little out of the realm of believability? I'm 6'1", 196 and am currently trying to lose 10 pounds. At the height of my three-times-a-week gym schedule, I was never above 190.

In wrestling terms it's not much of an exaggeration at all, especially in TNA where Hardy is actually taller than a lot of guys. Shawn Michaels gets announced with similar stats and he's about the same size as Hardy.

Ridiculous was Mike Tenay saying Samoa Joe was something like 6'10 during one of his early matches, but I'm pretty sure that was an accident.

That looks fantastic. I've never been interested in TNA before because it looked so bush league, but that site makes it look like a contender.
I hope it succeeds!

He's listed as 6'2 215 on his obsessedwithwrestling profile. His wikipedia entry lists him as 6'1 218.

Edit: I'm laughing at the results of the poll there.

What are you looking forward to?
40% A wrestling alternative on national TV
36% The high-flying X-Division.
21% More action, less talk.
3% The Heavyweights.

Ha! Screw you Jeff Jarrett!

The video bios are really cool, with Joe's putting the Muscle Buster over nicely.

I haven't seen TNA in so long...is that James Earl Jones sound-alike voice over guy new for Spike? They should totally get him to say "This...is TNA."

Or not.

Read this one for Samoa Joe:

HEIGHT: 6'3" WEIGHT: 290 lBS

I dunno, but I sure as hell don't see it.

SpikeTv.com did a great job with that site. The bios and interviews are pretty cool.

I am certain Jarrett will either totally ignore this, or use it as evidence as being a truly hated heel.

No, they've had him for awhile, doing the PPV videos -- he actually appeared in one recently -- Unbreakable or Bound for Glory, I don't remember.

I wonder what the focus groups have to say about that .

The PPV video voice-over guy was seen in the Bound For Glory promos. I think he's more Sahadi's guy than Spike TV's.

This is good though. When TNA was on FSN, I could NEVER find anything on their website for Impact or when it was on in my area/region. So here's one thing I love about the TNA section:



    Sat, October 1 @ 11:00 PM
    Mon, October 3 @ 12:00 AM
    Sat, October 8 @ 11:00 PM
    Mon, October 10 @ 12:00 AM


Actually tells you when the fucking show is on.
