Question: what next for TNA?

July 28, 2014

You’ve probably seen by now that gossip site TMZ are reporting that Spike TV will no longer be airing TNA programming on their channel.

There have, of course, been rumblings for a while suggesting that Jeff Jarrett’s new promotion, Global Force Wrestling, would be aiming for a slot on Spike.

Leaving that aside, the current TNA/Spike deal is reported to run till October, so it won’t be disappearing from American TV screens quite yet.

And of course it’s possible that in the interim, the company will find another TV channel to air its programming.

But perhaps this is a big opportunity for TNA.

Question: what do WWE have in store for Emma?

July 6, 2014

I’m still not entirely sure what to make of this week’s Emma-related saga. (Melodr-emma?)

After news broke of her arrest for sixth-degree larceny (or ‘shoplifting’, as it’s known), WWE were swift to update their website with news of her release.

By the time I woke up the next morning, she’d been reinstated, and WWE were talking ominously of the further action they intended to take in recognition of her law-breaking.

I found the entire episode quite puzzling. Read the rest of this entry »


Question: how does WWE view its global audience?

May 6, 2014

I can’t say I particularly wanted to watch the pre-show for Extreme Rules. I know from bitter experience that the entire thing would have been set up with an undercurrent of laughter at the very idea of small people attempting to wrestle, and a disturbing overtone that those small people aren’t quite REAL people. You know, like US.

Nevertheless, I logged on to YouTube – and realised that WWE aren’t showing pre-shows on there any more. The only place to see them is on the WWE Network.

Question: has CM Punk left WWE forever?

January 29, 2014

Everyone in the entire world seems to already know this, but just in case – stories suggest that CM Punk has walked out on WWE, hence his absence from Monday Night RAW.

There’s always the wobble over whether this is real or kayfabe, but, like the Daniel Bryan/Royal Rumble saga, this is also being covered by mainstream media; and although WWE are sticking to their “no comment” line – as they did over the weekend – they don’t need to, there’s enough hysteria (and, obviously, interest) being whipped up without them having to do anything.
