    NWATNA finally signed TV deal with Spike TV?

    Apparantly, the TV deal is moments away from being final, there is one more small legal issue before it can be officialy released in a press statement, but it shouldn't be that long of a wait to hear it. This news comes shortly after cryptic messages were shown in the opening sequence of TNA's No Surrender PPV, inwhich in order to hear them, you had to play the opening sequence backwards. The message stated "TNA is coming to Spike TV".

    This is a great move for TNA and will definately bring in more viewers & fans, which it definately deserves. This deal is one of many deals the NWA is trying to seal at the minute, along with a DVD publishing deal that will allow NWATNA products / DVD's to be sold through high street stores aswell as their official site.

    Great news.

    Maybe so, but atleast the WWE will have some competition. The reason why the WWE has been so crap for the past few years is because they've been competing with themselves with Raw & Smackdown. The roster split needs to stop, it would be so much better. Vince needs to learn to accept whe he's wrong instead of running with a failed idea.

    The best part about this is, the WWE don't even see TNA as competition, i think it was Vince who said something to the effect of "I don't see TNA as cmpetition, the WWE is an entertainment business, whereas TNA is a wrestling business".

    Then again Vince wouldn't know good business if it slapped him in the face.Good business would be fusing the 2 federations to be one so that TNA wrestlers could battle WWE wrestlers etc.

    Did anyone see RAW? That lumberjack match was pretty brutal. I thought Cena was going to lose for sure but I guess the champ doesn't lose unless he's being challenged for the title very often.

    And I loved the cage match with Edge and Kane. Awesome stuff :p

    Dave Hebner released from WWE:

    Dave Hebner has now been officialy released from the WWE, he was apparantly suspended on Monday following his father Earl Hebner being fired for selling WWE merchandise without authorisation. It is believed he was released Tuesday, one day after his father was fired.

    Also, the owner of Earl Hebners store has released this statement following the whole situation.

    Well, it's a shame Dave has gone too, considering he had nothing to do with it (apparantly). I guess the Hebner legacy is over in the WWE.

    Yah the WWE does alot of weird political moves. Sometimes I question whether its for the good of the business or if McMhanon is on a bad power trip or if they are just a bunch of assholes. As crappy as triple H has gotten over the years he has been taken care of pretty well getting the belt every other time and such for a while there.

    UPN have said they don't want the Muhamed Hassan charecter on smackdown anymore and I couldn't agree more.It just gives a bad name to arab people and adds fuel to this prejudice like fire.

    I tihnk Hussans character is great. He is a good wrestler and his gimmick is perfect cause it pisses off alot of people. Alot of those americans in the arenas are pretty damn racist with the signs they hold up, maybe they shouldn'r be so arrogant and there wouldn't be a problem with having a character like him.

    No, they're literally talking about killing the Hassan character. Sorta like they did to Paul Bearer last year, if you remember it.

    Without the concrete, though.

    Hmm it would be interesting then if they brought him back as someone else. Kinda like how Chavo changed ftom Chavo Guerrero to whatever the hell his name is now, something White. Chavo was one of the most entertaining they had, they should have kept his character.

    Kerwin White.

    They'll bring him back in a few months, but it'll be hard since the Hassan character got so much heat and publicity.

    Lord Alfred Hayes Passes Away: 1928 - 2005.

    That's too bad, i really enjoyed Lord Alfred Hayes' work, he was a great man. Rest In Peace. :(

    Ivory's contract not renewed.
