Jesse Sorensen also did a shoot interview this week where he revealed TNA didn't pay a dime towards his medical treatments for his neck injury, and that he had to rely on his mother's insurance which eventually led to her declaring personal bankruptcy. What a place to work for.
Originally posted by wannaberockstarI'm pretty sure that this time next year we'll all be watching brand-new copies of our Rise and Fall of TNA DVD's (though, let's be honest, was there really a "rise" part?).
If I had $1 for every time I've heard a similar prediction in the decade+ that TNA has been around, I'd probably have more money than TNA pays most of its workers.
Here are some more thoughts from a demented mind in Central Florida: Outside of maybe the occasional interview, the Black Machismo-Dutt angle, and maybe ring announcing a match or two, Val was really a glorified ringside off-camera cheerleader for tapings at the Impact Zone. Best of luck to Val, but with that said, this is probably the least of the losses lately for TNA.
Why yes, I am both a musician and a lawyer. Thanks for asking. :)
Wow So Cal Val has been in the company forever. I remember her saying she lied about her age to work with TNA so she really cared about the company. She mainly worked as an announcer for wrestlers entrances, but she was a regular guest on TNA's SPin Cycle show which if no one has seen an episode they should look it up on Youtube. Shoot roundtable opinions and stories by various TNA wrestlers that usually end up somewhere between intriguing and hilarity. Mostly hilarity.
Anyone know if Velvet Sky is still in the company? I just recently started watching TNA again and It seems THE KO Division only consists of ODB and Gail Kim now.

Yeah, Velvet is still with the company. About a month ago, she was feuding with Mickie James over the Knockouts title. Since then, Gail and ODB's feud has been headlining the division, though there was a nice Gail/Taryn Terrell ladder match thrown in for good measure. Mickie, the KO champion, is also usually there or thereabouts, and seems to be having a lot of fun as a douchebag rockstar heel champion.
I think the idea is that they aren't testing for pot unless they have specific cause to do so. They reserve the right to test (and punish) users if they show up stoned and hurt whoever they're wrestling (for example)
