Mauro Ranallo officially leaves WWE, huge Tna shock return! | WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Tna Impact Wrestling have been taping their TV for May over the last several days, and they’ve seen their fair share of shock returns, debuts and title changes. As these happen in not-yet-aired episodes of Impact Wrestling, skip the next few paragraphs if you don’t want to read them.

Spoilers coming in 3…2…

Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner showed up at the final night of Impact Wrestling’s TV tapings on Sunday 23rd April. Steiner has been a main eventer in WCW, WWE and Tna throughout his career, but has been locked in a legal battle with the latter since he was released in 2012, claiming he was owed royalties from the promotion, and that he was injured because Tna officials allowed Jeff Hardy to wrestle him while Hardy was intoxicated.

More shocking WWE backstage bullying stories exposed, big Tna returns | WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Despite his team losing to Jeremy Borash’s last week, Josh Mathews is still commentating for Impact Wrestling, coming out to announce on last night’s Bobby Lashley vs James Storm main event.

Just when I thought I was out…

I won’t go too much into spoilers, as Tna, Impact Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Bonanza – whatever you want to call it – returns to UK television tonight. After finishing up with Challenge late last year, Impact will now be airing on Spike UK every Friday at 9pm.

To make the time continuities even more confusing, though, the latest batch of Tna tapings started last night, and will run nightly until Sunday for their TV in May. And it was during those tapings where two big Tna returns happened. The next part contains spoilers for »

Why WWE released Simon Gotch revealed? WWE Raw debut delayed | WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

The greatest wrestling commentator of all time – his words, not mine – has sadly lost a match which means he’ll no longer be the announcer for Tna Impact Wrestling

Team Jeremy Borash Beat Team Josh Mathews. No More Josh Mathews On Commentary! No More Josh Mathews!

After six weeks of on-air bickering, it appears Jb and D’Angelo Dinero will be the two-man commentary booth for Impact Wrestling going forwards, with Mathews’ on-screen future uncertain – although he’d make a great heel manager for someone.

In even more positive wrestling announcing news, David Otunga won’t be making his Raw commentary debut for at least six weeks! He was traded to Monday nights in exchange for Byron Saxton to Smackdown in this week’s Superstar Shake-Up, but have revealed Otunga “has been cast in »

WWE Superstar Shake Up trades leaked? Major Tna stars return!

7 April 2017 8:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the returns of Lax and the debut of Alberto El Patron, the top story in Impact Wrestling right now is the feud between announcers Jeremy Borash and Josh Mathews.

The two will captain sides for a match next week to find out “who knows everything” – which I assume means, ‘the loser no longer does commentary’. We’re rooting for ya, Jb! And on last night’s episode, they both picked their teams.

Mathews ended up with Bobby Lashley, Bram, Eli Drake and Tyrus, while Borash got all the pops – announcing top babyface Alberto El Patron along with returning Tna stars Chris Adonis (who wrestled as Chris Masters in WWE), Matt Morgan and…go to Impact’s website to find out the final explosive member.

Yeah. That’s right. They ended the big show with a cliffhanger…to their website.

Tna is dead, now ‘Impact Wrestling’! Paige backstage at Tna tapings…

3 March 2017 9:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday’s episode of Impact Wrestling had Bobby Lashley defeat Josh Barnett to retain his World Heavyweight Championship, and we saw the last Tna appearances for The Broken Hardys, Drew Galloway and Jade. But the real news was happening in the non pre-taped version of the Impact Zone. i.e. the live, real-time version.

The episode broadcast last night was the final instalment from Tna’s January tapings. From next Thursday onwards, Jeff Jarrett’s new regime – and by ‘new’, I mean, the regime from about five years ago being brought back – will kickstart their era on television. An era that started filming last night.

Because this is about yet-to-be broadcast footage, spoiler warning for the next month-or-so of Impact Wrestling.

First up, the biggest one – former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio made his Tna debut at the TV Tapings, going by his non-WWE name Alberto El Patron. Mr »

Backstage heat on Tna star, Big WWE Wrestlemania 33 match cancelled?

24 February 2017 12:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since his racist comments were leaked as part of the Gawker sex tape lawsuit in 2015, Hulk Hogan has mostly vanished from WWE. His Hall of Fame profile has been removed from their website, you can’t find any Hulkster merchandise on their shop, and his WWE contract was terminated.

Well, call of the search, guys. I’ve found him.

In Holland.

The Real American’s latest appearance is in a commercial for Dutch insurance company Centraal Beheer, where he stops a thief from stealing a woman’s handbag. He then delivers a series of very well-protected wrestling moves: a tombstone piledriver, a leg drop, a flurry of fists and a splash off the top of a gate – none of them ever connecting with the villain. Way to expose the business, Hulk.

The concept is that the insurance company can provide actual protection from theft, rather than the pretend version Hulkster offers. »
