TNA has somehow managed to make its situation worse.
Yeah, the company that’s in millions of dollars of debt and just had its own president sue them. They’ve managed to make that worse.
It’s almost a talent. Like Wild E. Coyote’s talent of constantly falling off cliffs and somehow being back on television the next week.
Dave Lagana, the promotion’s Senior Director of Creative Writing – which is a fancy way of saying ‘head booker’ – has now announced his resignation from the company. I’m going to translate some of the key parts of his statement to show what he really means:
“Today I made the decision to leave TNA Impact Wrestling. A decision I do not make lightly but one I made to create a future that I control.”
Translation: TNA’s future is on the brink of collapse. Run away!
“I’d like to thank the talented and underappreciated television production crew and locker room.”
Translation: TNA, you should probably actually start paying these people.
“I’ve been very lucky to work with every major talent in the history of the sport and learn from its brightest minds; Vince McMahon, Paul Heyman, Dusty Rhodes…Billy Corgan, Vince Russo, Eric Bischoff, Bruce Prichard, Jeff Jarrett, and Dutch Mantel.”
Translation: Screw you, Dixie Carter.
This came just days after TNA President Billy Corgan was outed from the company, who has been very critical of his treatment on Twitter – going so far to threaten selling his 36% share of TNA to someone else…
“Last thing: despite being called a lender by every arm of TNA propaganda I can still convert to 36pct stock or sell option to highest bidder”
“And that ‘option’ if you will to convert my boo-hoo-hoo loan to 36pct stock or auction it off to a PW titan doesn’t require a court order”
The ‘Pro Wrestling Titan’ Corgan is threatening to sell his 36% of TNA stock to sure does sound like Vince McMahon’s WWE. Not only is it pro wrestling’s biggest ‘titan’, its headquarters are referred to as ‘Titan Tower’.
Speaking of WWE, the company is currently on its international tour, where Wrestlezone are reporting that Chris Jericho and Sin Cara have had a fight backstage.
There’s no word yet on what caused the altercation, but both men have previous. Jericho is said to have had an intense confrontation with Brock Lesnar immediately after the Beast’s Summerslam main event, and once took down Goldberg in 2003, and Sin Cara knocked down Simon Gotch of the Vaudevillians at a Smackdown taping back in July, stretching his rumoured backstage fight record to 4-0 in his favour.
I know what you’re wondering. Did Sin Cara get…it?
If MLW are to be taken seriously on Twitter, no (by the way, Sin Cara’s previous name was ‘Hunico’).
Hunico remains undefeated as WWE locker room refuses to accept this man as the baddest man on the planet. #Y2JKOd
Hunico…you just made the list!
