Two TNA Firings

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2009 by biggman621

BG James and Jim Cornette were both released from TNA today. Not too much is known about either release, but if I had to take a guess, it would be to limit Jeff Jarrett’s pull when he returns. BG James has been with the company almost the entire time. Jim Cornette joined as the face of TNA Management in 2006.

WrestlingInc has a very interesting article up by Tim Brown on how some of the creative team members will be affected with Jeff Jarrett’s absence. One interesting addition to the article is former TNA and current ECW champion Christian.

TNA Impact’s 200th episode is tonight on Spike TV. My preview will be up later today.

In the latest TNA web match, Lethal Consequences takes on The Motor City Machine Guns. This was another good match for both teams.

Jarrett/Angle Controversy

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2009 by biggman621

Someone who claimed to be an employee of TNA called into the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show. The employee claimed that Jeff Jarrett and Karen Angle (Kurt’s estranged wife) are living together in Jarrett’s home in Nashville. There were rumors of those two to be romantically involved and Dixie Carter, the president of the company, who was so upset at the situation that she removed him from the TV tapings and gave him “time off”.

I can confirm through this report that Jeff Jarrett and Karen Angle are in fact romantically involved and are currently living together. They had been dating since the Jarrett/Angle feud this year. Jarrett is the one who asked for time off because the Angle’s custody battle of their two kids has been heating up. Jarrett and Kurt Angle were able to co-exist before the custody battle got heated.

Another interesting issue that came up from this controversy is that Kurt Angle wanted creative control of the company or he would not sign a new contract. This hasn’t been confirmed by the olympic gold medalist, but TNA has responded by stating that they have no plans to change the creative team right now.

*No Shocker Spoiler: Because of his removal, the Jarrett/Eric Young storyline is off. Also, people inside the company want to know who aired the dirty laundry on the show.
