Jimmy Rave talks about his drug addiction during his TNA days.

As weak as the WWE policy can sometimes be, the fact that TNA is coasting along unacknowledged under the mainstream surface ,just waiting for something bad to happen, really makes a mockery of all the media outrage following the Benoit deaths.

Interesting about Dustin. I always wondered why he looked so crappy in TNA and then looked so much better when he returned to WWE (no a five star worker or anything, but good for his age).

TNA has two potential huge bombs waiting to go off in Hardy and Angle. If God forbid something happens to either, the press will be all over them. With Hardy, you'd have a ton of questions about TNA hiring him during his legal troubles. With Angle, you'd have the story of a former Olympic champion who was destroyed by pro wrestling.

Though Angle looks a lot healthier lately...

Unless it's an extremely slow news day, I suspect the entire TNA roster could drop dead and only a handful of news media companies will even mention it.

I'm surprised that many TNA wrestlers can afford to maintain a drug habit, though, based on the stories of how little those who's checks don't bounce get paid.

If I remember the original interview (maniaweekend.blogspot.com), I think he was actually referring to his second Ring of Honor run, not the Rock and Rave Infection. (He only had one prolonged run in TNA, from 2007 to 2009, then a one-shot earlier this year.)

    TJ: While you probably received the most national exposure from your time in TNA, your arguably most celebrated time in your career was during your stints with Ring of Honor. Were there any big differences between your two different runs with the company? What were the reasons for you suddenly leaving the company in 2009?

    JR: There was a huge difference between the two times I was there... My 2009 run, I was a complete drug addict to be honest. I didn't give a damn about wrestling because I just cared about scoring more pills and numbing myself. Which people probably could notice about what kind of shape I was in and how I looked and even my wrestling. ROH officals saw that and rightfully said "hit the road". In turn, I went to rehab, got a job as a director of a Wellness Center, and I now help people realize they throw everything away that they love when they start abusing drugs. My first run was amazing though. I learned so much and had the greatest times of my life there. I love the ROH product and a lot of the boys there have been my closest friends since I was 19.


It's great to read that he's clean and staying sober, but this interview doesn't pin the addiction on TNA. (He doesn't give a timeline beyond "I was messed up in ROH in 2009", so we can't say definitively whether he was on drugs in TNA.)

ALTHOUGH between Rave and Jimmy Jacobs during his Age of the Fall run, ROH has had a couple of people admit to drug problems under their employ...

Not true, if only because Hulk Hogan's a member of the TNA roster.

I had Punk as being the next to feud with the McMahon-Helmsley Faction, since all signs point to NOC being the major blowoff for his Heyman feud (at least until Brock comes back)
