    You missed Jeff Hardy in 2007-2009 when he was one of the best wrestlers in the country.




No I saw him on his two year quest to win the title, but I wasn't impressed with him, and other than the occasional Whisper in the Wind or whatever it's called, he's pretty boring for me to watch.

For what it's worth, Orlando Jordan is actually 38.

Also, if you believed everything Hogan ever said on a radio show, much less implied without saying, you'd believe a lot of incorrect things.

FWIW Spike TV put the video up on its Twitter page with the text that Hogan confirms RVD signing.

Does Orlando Jordan have a prime?

What top guys did the Nasty Boys and Morley go over? Sure, Daniels main evented a few months in a row, but still, losing to Morley one time is not the end of the freaking world.

I am almost 37 and like to consider myself "fairly" young, and dare I say, still in my prime. At least I like to think so. But I get your point. ; )

JustinShapiro, if they go the direction with OJ that has been speculated, his prime might be in the near future. At least a Goldust like prime.

      Also, nothing against either of these guys performance-wise, but how many more signings do they get before the TNA originals realize there's no more TV time left for them?


    They still need something big for March 8th since they already did a bunch of debuts and surprises on January 4. Including Jeff's, I guess.
Plus outside of Cena nobody came close to him in merch sales.

    The Rock on Monday nights for three or four months is pretty much the nail in the coffin for TNA.

    Let TNA spend and spend and spend and release unique workers like Kong, and Vince will soon own them too.

Except he won't be doing that. I suspect he probably will host Raw one week but not much more than that.

    I personally know at least 5 people who will watch if he returns.

    The Rock > Everyone on TNA combined when it comes to ratings.

Wow five whole people? You can make the same point about the entire WWE roster I guess. The guy isn't coming back for more than a week to host Raw.

On the flip side, how many people realize that Jeff Hardy is only 32 (less than a year older than AJ)? Granted, he has the most mileage a 32 year old has probably ever had.

    The only way we'll see The Rock on Monday nights on USA for three or four months is if he's doing an extended guest run on Burn Notice.


If that happened I would never watch Raw or TNA ever again. I'd just be replaying Burn Notice on Hulu all day.

Rock is looking fairly likely to do an extended run on Raw, albeit in a non-wrestling capacity. He's been outright saying it for some time now, so claiming that it's all made up is kinda weird. It's certainly no more outlandish than say, Bret coming back for a run.

I can't believe people are defending Orlando Jordan as a good signing.

"Obviously the roster is getting too big and people have to go but who would be on the chopping block? I think it would be possible to do cuts without losing someone major. Creed, Kiyoshi, Sharkboy, Dr. Stevie, Raven, So Cal Val, Generation Me and Red all seem like guys without direction that aren't big losses."

Cutting a bunch of people who are already not on TV at all is not going to free up space for new signings.

RVD? Really? Can't wait for the usual hype (see Christian, Angle, Foley, Hogan, Flair, Hardy, Anderson):

The BIGGEST signing in TNA history!

THIS for sure will turn things around for TNA!



Yes, I'm back! I know, I said I would never ever watch that crap again, but ... I just can't live without it, I guess.

I'll say this about RVD. If they let RVD BE RVD in the ring, which he never really got to do all that much in WWE, they'll have my attention for 10-20 minutes a week.

    Major gambles for both signings. Success here is completely contingent on both of these guys staying out of trouble.


That's okay, Hogan will bring in Jake the Snake to keep them clean.

    I don't think Anderson has X-pac heat at all. The guy is just over as a heel. Part of that is working with Angle, for sure. But that's one of the keys to the wrestling business: giving the rub to a guy not on your level, and making them look like stars too. Like Flair did with Luger (and Sting) in 1988.


The problem with Anderson is once he's done talking and actually has to wrestle, nobody gives a crap. He really needs to channel some early ECW Shane Douglas.

This week, TNA is back to a 1.1. At least the original bunch was cheaper.

I'm certainly not saying that TNA shouldn't be bringing any of these guys in, and it's possible this week's rating will turn out to be something of a fluke, but clearly they aren't making the best use of what they have.

All those and you didn't even mention Jazz and Lita. It really does seem like Raw is a MASH unit. One thing probably has nothing to do with the other but Bubba has seemed REALLY off these last few weeks.
