Nwa-tna has recently signed Crash Holly and he will be appaering shortly. He should make somewhat of an impact on the X division. (as long as they don't give him the title and put it on the line 24/7). Roddy Piper is also on the verge of signing too, considering he has just been released from the WWE a few wks ago.

This is it. I knew TNA needed someone to put it over the top and into direct competition with WWE. And now, they've signed him: CRASH HOLLY. In Crash we trust! In Crash we trust! Everyone, come on! Start chanting!
Originally posted by CANADIAN BULLDOGBut what will they call him? Mike Lockwood? Would they legally be able to call him maybe just `Crash'? I think that will mean a lot in terms of his ability to make an impact with them.
Maybe WWE let him keep the name, especially since he didnt leave on bad terms or anything. It's not the greatest name in the world, I dont see why WWE wouldnt let him keep it to make a living with.
Originally posted by TorchslasherPerhaps he will go by the Erin O'Grady moniker he used starting out in the APW fed (you know, Roland from Beyond The Mat's federation).
Maybe he can go back to using the Irishcanrana as his finisher as well. Stereotypes in wrestling? Never. I think he'll be a solid addition to the roster. I just hope he's not scripted for a lame shoot interview.
I'm interested to see what he brings to the table in some good lengthed, non-comedy, non-hardcore type matches. A few months ago when they moved him from RAW to Smackdown, he had a few decent Cruiser matches on Velocity.
I might actually buy a few more NWAs to see Crash. He was always one of my sneaking favorites, and the WWE never did much with him beyond the 24/7 Era. I'd like to see him in a straight match after he gets the comedy out of his system.
"I do have a degree in electrical engineering... from almost 20 years ago. Punchcard systems were just becoming obsolete, we had rotary phones in the dorms, and a modem was still a gizmo the size of a shoebox into which you squooshed the phone receiver itself. In short, we lived like animals.
The instant obsolesence is why I became a writer. The rate of punctuation in a sentence doesn't double every 18 friggin' months, and you never have some 22-year-old looming over your shoulder, shaking his head, saying "dude... you're still using adverbs...?"
Watching the Steiner/Orton match, I wondered how different Evolution would be if Renee Dupree was selected instead of Orton. Would Teenage Phenom Dupree would be more marketable than Blue Chipper/3rd Generation Superstar Randy Orton?
