While TNA is still attempting to get Jeff Hardy to sign something...ANYTHING...it looks like Kid Kash might have gotten his wish and been released from any further commitment with TNA after his radio comments. While on one hand it's a shame to see him go, as he was consistently a good performer (if too over-the-top as a heel), on the other hand it serves him right.
I remember watching Kash early on in TNA in one of those sit-down shoot segments with Mike Tenay. At that time he came off as a complete moron. I wrote it off, thinking maybe his one-word answers and doofy mannerisms were just from the wear and tear of travel.
Now, however, I'm convinced he's a complete idiot. Meltzer is reporting that Kash has been telling people in TNA that he can get onto Smackdown because he's good friends with Paul Heyman. IS HE OUT OF HIS MIND?! Does he honestly think Heyman has that much pull right now? And no offense, but guys ten years his junior that are his size can't get a push, what does he think he'll be able to do? For a guy who's been in the business for so many years, he seems to have no understanding of how it works.
Welcome, Kid Kash, to the Teddy Hart School of Self-Delusion. You have a bright future ahead of you.
I have a real fear that the WWE will take Generico and make a serious character out of him. Santino had a fantastic gimmick in OVW, where he was a Russian shootfighter, but in the main roster? He's a goofy, loveable loser comedy act.
