I was just wondering what happened to Kanyon, Noble, Sean O'Haire and Vampiro. I know Kanyon, Noble, and O'Haire were all candidates for showing up on TNA after they were released by WWE but as far as I know they never made any appearances. And Vampiro I haven't seen since the Raven feud in TNA. So what happened? Are they wrestling elsewhere? Or did they get out of the business?

Kanyon - Retired. Got himself a real job.

Jamie Noble - Working New Japan and indies (ROH) as Jamie Gibson. WWE told him not to work TNA if he ever wanted to come back.

Sean O'Haire - When he's not beating up women in South Carolina, he's getting beat up in MMA fights. MUSASHI!

Vampiro - Doing very well in Mexico as usual.

Wow...how really nice of the WWE...real class there.

I'm kinda amazed that they care that much about TNA to tell Jamie that.

One of the K-1 commercials I believe is running right now, and on it you can see Bob Sapp, Akebono, and Sean O'Haire as some of the featured guys. (I think it's K-1 anyways, I don't really pay enough attention.)

Maybe the Jamie Noble thing is perception, where WWE talent goes to die. Road Dogg, The Outlaw, Nash, Hall, Jarrett, Hardy, Raven, etc.

I think I've seen Vampiro a couple of times watching the Lucha Libre shows on Galavision or Univision, and the last time I saw him, he looked like crap.

In fairness, there are a lot of witnesses who saw this alleged "beating" and support O'Haire's claim that the women were attacking him and that he was just defending himself. His claim was, if he had "attacked" them, they'd be in the hospital.

O'Haire's been working in K-1's MMA division (Yes, they do have one.).

Not to mention possibly illegal/unenforceable, judging by what I know about no-compete agreements.

And obviously a random post on a message board is gospel truth and should be treated as such.

It does seem like an odd request to place on a guy who you fired. Especially since he was pretty much used as a jobber for his entire tenure after dropping the Cruiserweight title. They couldn't find enough use for him to keep him on payroll, yet they're worried about him going to their primary competition?

Let's face it: business is on the decline. Ring of Honor and TNA can't exactly be called big time players yet. With the WWE as the only real big game in town, they can make whatever demands that they want of talent. If you want the golden ticket of a WWE contract (and the WWE money that goes along with it), you'll do what you can to not piss them off.

Plus, Noble forced his own release on the company by putting them in a position where his steroid use would become known through medical treatment. IIRC, when he was let go he was told that there would be spot waiting for him again in the near future. They're not saying "you CAN'T work TNA", they're saying "you can work TNA, but if you do you can kiss g'bye to that spot we promised you". There's nothing illegal about it, and there's nothing unenforcable because there's nothing to enforce.

Good point. Id forgotten about the steroid issue involved in his release.

Good thing he bought that fancy new trailer-home when he was living with Nidia and making all that Cruiserweight Champion money.

Not to mention the inheritance money. Unless Nidia blew the whole amount on that fur coat.
